Busy Weekend

Happy Monday!!!  This is what we were up to this weekend…

 I’m a Rodan + Fields consultant.  Recently one of my girlfriends joined my team!  Yay!!  Friday night we had a launch party for her AND our new Acute Care product.

 Lauren (on the left) is a leader on our team and she came to the party.  It was a GREAT night!  Girlfriends, dessert, AND skincare?  Yes, please!  And…three kiddos upstairs with the babysitter…hahahaha!

Our set up looked pretty cute, huh??

Saturday morning we met our friends, the Kellys, at the Dallas Arboretum.  It is absolutely gorgeous in the fall with all the mums and pumpkins.

Then we hit up the kid’s area for some fun.  I did a horrible job taking pictures, but there were lots of water activities.  They loved it!  Their favorite part was the big sand area.  🙂

Ebby Lee was participating in a little wind experiment.

I have no clue what this little exhibit was about.  #justkeepinitreal

We got in the car right at lunch time, so they all ate their dinner while watching a movie on the drive home.  Tough life, huh??

 After the Arboretum, we dropped Ebby Lee off at a play date.  Her very first play date with a kindergarten friend!!  The boys and I headed to the Manda Strong Zumbathon.  Their shocked non-moving expressions crack me up!  That’s exactly how I feel about Zumba too!!  haha!  I went to one Zumba class a few years ago and I could not stop laughing at myself.  Every time I saw my reflection in the mirror I busted out laughing!  Zumba pretty much gives me the same anxiety-type feelings I’d get before a junior high dance!  It just isn’t my “thing”.  The boys and I went and supported those girls who can ZUMBA though!  There were rockstars out there shaking it.  I was SO impressed!

I was talking to a friend and saw this.  You can’t tell in the picture, but Nixon was patting his back.  Melts my heart!

A couple of the girls in our BFG…look, I wore my Arboretum clothes, because I didn’t want anyone to peer pressure me to Zumba!  haha!  You can’t Zumba in a scarf, can you??

The boys and I ran a couple errands.  Ebby Lee got dropped off from her playdate and Presley came over to hang with us for a bit.  I dumped a bunch of random craft goodies on the table and told them they could make anything they wanted.  🙂

Sweet Girls 🙂

On our way to church yesterday morning, Bowen started not feeling good again.  It was my week to work in the welcome area, so we pressed on!  I just kept the icky Bowen with me so he didn’t get anyone else sick.  We left a little early, and after lunch and rest time, Ebby Lee and I headed out for a little GIRL TIME!  Being one sister with two brothers, she thrives on GIRL TIME!  I try to find time for us to hang alone as much as I can.  We headed out for a little pedicure yesterday afternoon.

After dinner, Bowen was feeling a little better.  The big kids biked while we walked/strolled.

Hope your week is off to a GREAT start!!  We’re laying low today just making sure Bowen is better before we get back out in the real world!
