Weekend Update - Garage Sales, Breakfast Club, Football

Someday I'll learn to stop perpetually over-scheduling myself. But until then, here is a recap of another busy weekend!
 On Friday morning Amanda, Cailin and I woke up bright and early to participate in the Snoqualmie Ridge Community Garage Sale. Basically, we threw everything leftover from the previous weekend's clothing swap onto my driveway, and then sat and drank mimosas while chatting with my neighbors as they sorted through the items. We made a buck or two.

I've talked before about how much I love going to garage sales with my family.

My mom and my aunts usually come up the night before for a super fun (and not sober) sleepover, and then we wake up with the sun the next morning for a large pot of coffee and hopefully some early bird specials.

We had a smaller group this year, but were also joined by my soon-to-be sister-in-law Morgan for the first time — FUN!

And while I was busy thrift shopping, Ryder got to spend some extra special quality time with Daddy...

Sunday morning I once again got up bright and early (clearly I never, ever sleep in anymore) to head into Seattle for breakfast with my two favorite ladies, Heather and Lindsee.

Breakfast Club Reunited!

Tragically, Lindsee moved to Montana a while back, and although Heather and I have tried to uphold the Breakfast Club tradition on our own, it just hasn't been the same without Linds. So it was awesome to get together this weekend for breakfast while she was visiting for the weekend.

And then, finally, came the moment we had been waiting for all week...

Sunday Night Football!

Sadly, the game ended up heartbreak once again. We're not looking good, sports fans...

I can't wait to be back home at the Clink for next week's game.

This weekend was a bit rough for poor little Ryder. He has multiple molars coming in all at once, so he is fussy and irritable during the day, and at night he's downright inconsolable. Friday night he was up with a fever, and Saturday night he alternated between fitful tossing, turning, whimpering, and heartbreaking sobbing. We just held him and rocked him and cuddled him all night long.

The next day I thought he'd be exhausted (I sure was), but instead he went on a nap strike until he eventually spent most of the Seahawks game passed out on my chest.

Poor guy. It's so hard to see him suffer. I'm doing everything I can to make him comfortable, but I sure do hope those little teeth pop through soon!

How was your weekend?

  1. I, too, had a busy weekend! I'm glad to say that my team finally won a game, though!

  2. I love garage sales too but haven't done one in a while. My family's not that interested, unless there's toys LOL. Poor Ryder. Hope he feels better soon! Teething and sick children are so sad.


Talk to me, Goose!
