Weekend Wrap-up

This Week:  I've really loved this week. Summer os far has been pretty quiet and amazing, just what I could have hoped for so far. Lots of late night chats, tasty treats, breezy drives, new discoveries, sunset walks, cuddly movies, toddler and baby milestones, fresh produce, cold drinks, family visits, house renovations, friendly visits, and (as of this week) good exercise:) In all fairness there have been a few ca-razy hot days, dizzying nights of code work, and I broke an egg straight into the garbage can on Thursday... who does that anyways? haha an all-around success I feel however, and I can't wait to see what next week will hold:)
Weekly Snapshots: Just a few random pics from the week. Treats, new air conditioning from Martin and his helper, a few more house renovations, oh and tiny baby toes:
Weeks Favorite: The girls on Thursday morning watching Martin outside in the garden. Love the light. Seems to be their new favorite spot when the day's just beginning. 
Next Week: Goals for next week include: Cherry picking and farmers market shopping (my favorite!), specking out a few local garage sales, Martin going out of town for three. whole. days, quite possibly some potty training, a hair trim, season 4 of Project Runway(also a fav), some new recipes to try, a date night for the two of us (and quite possibly a make-out session, not gonna lie), an organized chore list to plow through, a little lady time with my bestie, lots of hardcore gym time (aw-yeeah!) lots and lots of vacuuming, a new stove for the second kitchen(just in time for canning!), and little ol me gettin a nap or two here and there:) Big Week!
Most popular post of the week: My Caramel Toffee Brownie recipe pulled a few of you in I think:) Did you try it? Go make them now!
A Few Facts: 
  • I just bought nail polish for the first time in 5 years
  • One of my favorite childhood computer games was "Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?" 
  • I confess to listening to Christmas records yesterday for hours. No shame.
Here's wishing you a wonderful week next! What is your favorite thing to do on Sundays?
xo, Emily
