Weekend Recap: Fun, Food and Fireworks

Fourth of July was upon us and I didn’t have any solid plans on our agenda. I had things I needed to do and wanted to do but none of them were things my family would enjoy.

So we played it by ear…

Sunday fun day, the girls and I met up for brunch thanks to a Living Social deal we purchased months ago. I’m on the fence about the experience but whatever.

I managed to get breakfast food at brunch, imagine that. That bacon was EVERYTHING!
Post-brunch my BFF came over for an impromptu play date for the girls. I’ve wanted to do this canvas painting craft and the day was perfect. The girls are 2 and 4 and they did such a great job. They followed the instructions and didn’t make a mess. I will post a DIY on canvas art this week.
I hope you had a wonderful weekend making great memories with your family and friends. I didn’t make it to any cookouts but I did eat well.
