QUOTES: Funny Monday Quotes

Sorry to be the bearer of not so happy news but... on the positive Christmas is just 6 months away. Haha, just kidding but no really. Anywaaaaayyy, how about that glorious long weekend??? Mine was super relaxing and totally non-productive as in all I did was celebrate birthdays, holidays and no work days and it did not suck. My oldest teen, I can say that now because I officially have 2, is at the beach with her BFF until tomorrow so it was just me, the boy and girl #2. And the rain... oh yeah... it rained and rained off and on all weekend. We did get to the local fireworks show on Friday and it was fun... a little red, but fun! But mostly the rain kinda kept us in which is ok by me cause no heat and bugs. We celebrated Spencer's 13th bday all weekend long, went to see Inside Out which was awesome, grilled out, ate fancy doughnuts and greasy breakfast and just hung out together. The kids had friends over, the dog slept and I caught up on laundry, Netflix, my DVR and a teeny tiny bit of housework. It was a nice chill weekend!

The birthday cake of choice was some sort of raspberry dark chocolate obscenity from Publix, and it was amazing. And there were fireworks. 

We made a special trip to Dutch Monkey Doughnuts on Friday followed up by birthday dinner round two for the boy at Carraba's with Lobster Ravioli. We also made our holiday weekend pilgrimage to Waffle House on the 4th and Mommy had some bloody Mary's on the deck Sunday after my first attempt at Eggs Benedict. That was another special birthday request... my kids seriously will eat all the best stuff! We also did a little grilling up some good burgers and Mexican street corn. It was a really good eating weekend with a series of cheat days strung together as holidays and birthdays tend to go around here!

Time to hit it hard this week with some good healthy food and some solid exercise. 

How was your 4th?
