Father’s Day Weekend

I had to forgo Five Things Friday this week (sad face). I’ve been so busy and our weekend was jam packed. I spent Friday running errands and organizing things for Father’s Day and Henry’s birthday party. Friday evening we went out to dinner with friends at Eclipse de Luna. They have the best tapas and it’s great for groups. (My favorites are the Fried Goat Cheese with Caramelized Onions & Honey and the Spiced Potatoes with Romesco). We had a nightcap at Twisted Taco and I made sure to take it easy (unlike my previous Friday night. Yikes).


We decided last week to finally re do our sunroom and started the project on Saturday. We removed the yucky 15 year old green carpet and began painting the walls. We chose a high gloss white which will open up the room along with new hardwood floors made with 12 inch boards and a nice dark stain. The deadline for this project is June 25th … wish us luck!
After painting on Saturday we headed over to our friends house in Candler Park to have some brunch. It was amazing. Our sweet hosts made such a great spread and we had a wonderful time catching up. They already have an adorable dog and cat and just got a kitten too. The kitten was fascinated by Henry and would stalk/follow him around the whole time.

After our brunch date we went hope and napped for a few hours and then had a park picnic with some friends and their babies. Our babies are getting to the age where it is almost impossible to take them to a non baby proofed place. Meaning, there needs to be barricades to keep them corraled. The hubby and I have really bonded with these friends and are so grateful to have them in our lives.

Our Father’s Day was pretty low key. When hubs woke up I had some coffee and donuts ready for him. (Side note: We both eat a Paleo diet but Jan wanted to have a cheat day). I had a large breakfast spread planned which he loved and was totally surprised (thank you pinterest!) We lounged all day, watched soccer games, Law & Order SVU, napped and just enjoyed not having to do anything but play and be lazy. I made fruit & donut skewers, Bacon Cheddar Pancake Bites, Eggs and (more) Bacon, Orange Pecan French Toast and Mimosa’s. I covered the dining room table with craft paper and wrote my favorite memory from the past year and did some other doodles. I even stamped Henry’s chubby hand print too 🙂 Henry also had his first taste of a Krispy Kreme donut … he loved it. Shocking.
I hope everyone had a great weekend and Happy Father’s Day to all the daddy’s out there!
