Family Filled Weekend

This past weekend was low key and filled with family. 
Soooo my style! 

Got my hair all did right before the weekend. I just sat down and let my girl, Brooke, do her thang!
Ombre' is what she choose and I am loving the results.
My hair looks super long on the left and I am loving that! 

Kev had to work late friday and take care of the pups as sweet Bailey still has stitches and has turned into Houdini and escapes every cone, e-collar and even t shirt i put on him.  Talk about a nightmare.....sheesh. 
The fam and I had plans of attending Baby Brother's girlfriend's last home soccer game on friday afternoon. 
We are pretty much obsessed with Brittany! I often refer to her as my future sissy-in-law. She's such a peach! 

I met up with them in Richmond at the EKU soccer field.
Although from the pic below it may look cold, it was a gorgeous sunny day with that perfect fall crispness in the air.
I, however, had to keep my face wrapped and out of the sun due to a recent chemical peel. That's a story for a whole other post. This is my second deep chemical peel (trying to get rid of bad decisions regarding the sun in my young twenties) and boy are the peels a pain in my social life. No makeup, no spray tan, constant ointment and moisturizer and flakey/peeling skin for days. I knew friday and Saturday would be my worst days - and boy were they!! My face was falling off all weekend. My family got a kick out of this one....let me tell you. 

I know, I know.....I am absolutely ridiculous. My brother was a constant reminder of that ;-)

I think they are pretty stinking cute if I do say so myself!

And while Britt's team lost in OT, we still had a fun evening.
We made a trip to Buffalo Wild Wings for wings and beer post game and to celebrate Britt's senior year coming to a close soon. So proud of her! 

Friday evening my parents and brother helped me load up some more items from our storage unit in Lexington. Still can't believe we have more stuff in there. Ugh, I feel like we will never get everything unpacked and put away.

We got back to NKY late and called it a night.
The next morning momma and I cooked it up in the kitchen while the boys watched a little ESPN.
It was the first home cooked meal we shared as a family at the table in our new house. 

*Saturday evening was spent watching college football on the couch 
*shopping at hobby lobby, home goods and some antiquing for some finishing touches on the house 
*i picked up the cutest antique bookshelf for the office nook/den 
*we had BBQ for dinner and a late evening target run
Picture perfect Saturday indeed! 

It was a weekend filled with hardly any photo -ops though...not because my skin was falling off haha, but because it was a weekend filled with soaking up each other as family. 
Trying to be present and in the moment as much as possible.
I feel like the weekend flew by and it's always hard to say goodbye on Sunday afternoon, but we are very blessed with time we were able to spend together.

Family is not an important thing. It's everything. - Michael J. Fox

Family really is everything to Kev and I.

Ouch that just sounds painful girl! That is so great you have a close family. I have a big family and am so blessed to be very close to all of them, when we all get together its so loud with everyone talking and laughing...I love it!

I want to hear more about these Chemical Peels! Do you find they really work? Can you see noticeable results?
Love your hair!

So glad you had a good weekend and just enjoyed quality time with the fam. There is nothing better, that's for sure! It makes me so happy to hear how much you love your (future) sis-in-law. I can't imagine NOT having the amazing relationship I do with mine!:)

I love your hair so much!!!

Eesh said...

OH GAWD I love your hair!!! I've been trying to figure out what to do with mine (with weave installed). I want to give my natural hair a break. I'm so swiping your style! Sans ombre... Or maybe...idk lol

I live for family time so I know how you feel. I'm always happy to be around my mom and sis and bros...and Bailey all at the same time.

Hopefully your skin has gotten better. I've never had a peel before but heard that they could be pretty annoying.

Wishing you, Kev & the sweeties a wonderful week!

My friend just did a peel (or something similar) so she said she's going to be a life guard for Halloween since her face will be red haha
