Happy Monday, friends! Quinn and I had quite the weekend together. Mal was away, so it was just the two of us and we ended up staying quite busy!
I picked up Quinn from school on Friday afternoon, and we headed straight to Target. The kid is obsessed – I mean, aren’t we all? He loves looking at the toys. And, this time, I let him get one – a new Transformer, and he was so excited! When we got home, he said: “Let’s open up this bad boy!” Haha!
At home, we settled in for the night. We ate dinner, Qman took a bath, and then we got into pajamas for a movie night – complete with Quinn Popcorn, of course! 🙂
We snuggled and watched The Secret Life of Pets, which, if you haven’t seen it already, is the cutest movie ever. I’m so glad Quinn picked it – it’s definitely an adult movie too. Although, we had quite a few interruptions with Murphy barking at the dogs on TV. He’s ridiculous. #puglife
We were up and at ’em on Saturday morning! We did our usual CrossFit thing followed by smoothies from Rosa Farms. We also got some dino gummies for Cousin Matthew. It was Quinn’s idea, which was really sweet, but I’m pretty sure he wanted some for himself too! 😉
Before we left, we made sure to say hi to Clover. FYI: If you want to see Clover when you’re at Rosa Farms, just ask one of the employees to get her from the back. 🙂
After that, we headed home and waited for Cousin Matthew and my family to arrive. Quinn was so pumped – he thinks Cousin Matthew is the coolest! We played inside for awhile and then headed outside to the backyard. It finally warmed up to 50+ degrees, so we were all itching to get out and enjoy the weather!
Quinn and my niece Karli were hungry for lunch, so we headed inside to make the kiddos some food. While they ate, I whipped up a quick salad with chicken for the adults. It was one of those salad packs from Target (chopped kale, cranberry, pecan with a honey mustard vinaigrette), and it got rave reviews from both my sister and brother-in-law. The chicken was from ButcherBox, and it was already cooked up, so lunch came together quickly. I also broke out a few bags of Deep River Chips for everyone to try since we’re obsessed with them. They have so many fun flavors, and everyone (kids included) loved them!
With April coming to an end, I wanted to take a minute to reiterate that Deep River Snacks is more than just a bag of chips. Their mantra, “Because We Give A Chip” sums it up perfectly – they give a chip about making the best tasting chips, from simple, wholesome ingredients, and are committed to giving back to charities and causes that are meaningful to them. Like you saw in my previous post, Deep River Snacks is super committed to giving back. You’ll find a different charity on the back of every bag and they donate 10% of net profits to these and other charities each year. Amazing, right? Next time you see their chips in-store, grab one and see what charity is on the back or you can purchase online. Also, check below to see if you won the 6-month supply of chips from Deep River Snacks! 🙂
After lunch, we headed out for a walk around the neighborhood with Murphy. It was such a nice day, we needed to take advantage!
During our walk, the tiny humans got a bit tired (and cranky), so when we got home, we all said goodbye. It was definitely nap time!
Quinn ripped off a solid nap and then was ready for more adventures! On the agenda: Home Depot, which is another top favorite of his! 🙂 We had some landscapers come the day before to do a “spring clean-up” and we needed to water the “grass babies” they planted, but our hoses needed to be replaced, so we took a trip to Home Depot.
Quinn had the best time watering!
And then we painted pots for our herb garden – it was quite the happening Saturday night!
We had a nice leisurely Sunday morning. Quinn slept in until 6:35 AM and then cuddled in bed with me for another 15 minutes, so it was nearly 7:00 AM by the time we went downstairs.
Once we got ourselves ready for the day, we hit up Trader Joe’s to do our grocery shopping for the week. Then, we met some friends at the playground!
The playground was a lot of fun, and we stayed there until lunchtime. Back at home, we ate lunch and then Quinn went down for a nap. He was exhausted after our playdate. While he slept, I did some meal prep for the week.
When Quinn woke up from his nap, we took Murphy for a walk around the neighborhood. It was such a beautiful day. We played outside for a little while and then watered the grass babies again.
The weekend ended the way it started with another trip to Target. What can I say, we both love it there! 🙂

Dance and cheer outreach events that my teams put on in underprivileged communities. Events are free and meals are provided and we try to keep them within walking distance.

My teams benefit too from resume building, public speaking, and sharing what they love with others.
