Weekend Recap and a 1/2 Birthday!

Happy Monday!
Hope y'all had a great weekend!  It was another beautiful one here, and we had a lot of fun :)

I spent Friday afternoon going my happy place - Target!
And ours has a Starbucks inside - which makes it even happier!  



As you can see on the bottom of the cart - we tried out the Peach-Pear La Croix for the first time...


and let's just say, we've already finished the case!  Sooooo yummy and refreshing!  Love the peach flavor!  I think we'll try the grapefruit flavor next!

Also, Target is now carrying the Honest Company, which is very exciting!  I love several of their baby and household items!  


John had dinner with some of his buddies Friday night, so the baby and I had cereal for dinner and then watched some mindless TV :) 
Does anyone else have cereal for dinner when no one else is around?!


Saturday was my favorite breakfast....

(almond milk, granola, banana, honey, cinnamon, and chia seeds)

(love Chia seeds - I've been putting them in everything!)

...and a little family devotion, along with my morning hot lemon water!




The rest of the day was spent visiting friends with a new baby, doing a 2-mile hike, pizza for dinner, and 

SQUASH! for the little man :)  
This was his first real food!

I think he preferred his toes, though...

Sunday was church, and then I spent the day baking! 
Today is Andrew's 6 month birthday - so we celebrated the big milestone last night!  :)

We really had the best time - it is crazy how fast time flies!  
Feels like yesterday we were bringing him home from the hospital on Christmas Day!

(cant believe he was wearing preemie clothes!)

And now he is 6 months old!  So bittersweet!
I already miss those days when he was falling asleep on my chest, and making those cute little baby grunts in his sleep.  And his first smile - oh here I go getting weepy.

Back to celebrating!


Of course, I made the cake for Andrew to see...not eat :)
John thought I was crazy...but any excuse to bake a cake, right!?  



Feeling so blessed!  

Hope y'all had a great weekend, too!

Aw happy half birthday, so precious! Yes, I usually go to Target after work on Fridays for groceries, ours has a Starbucks too, it's also my happy place. Makes grocery shopping not so bad. I love that they carry Honest now, I was subscribed for a while but I was getting overstocked so I had to cancel, this is perfect. Have a good Monday girl :)

He's so cute! Look at that cake - you go girl! So I don't get the chia seed thing...what are they? I see everyone putting them in smoothies, oatmeal etc...are they high in protein?!

Target + sbux used to serve as my happy place but sadly there's not one to be found in the UK :( Every-time I go back home to visit it's a MUST. Until then I'll just live through your trips ha!

You have one adorable 6 month old - just precious!
