Weekend Roundup

Howdy, friends!  Did ya miss me?!  The end of last week was crazy and I am still trying to recover from that + the fun weekend we had in Boone!  My parents' mountain house is absolutely beautiful.  They still have a few things to do, but we had such a blast spending the weekend together and the house is perfect.  I am only uploading iPhone pics tonight because I'm too lazy to go through everything I took on my nice camera (plus I'm so comfy and cozy in my bed and don't feel like leaving it to get the camera ha!) - I am bummed that I didn't take any of the house itself!  

We arrived on Friday night around 9:30 pm and L had a ton of energy after being trapped in the car for over four hours due to horrible traffic.  She put on quite the show for everyone when we arrived!  Saturday was game day, which I was excited about until we went outside.  I forgot how COLD it gets in Boone!  Seriously I spent the day wondering when I got so old.  I was watching the college students and remembering the times when I could be out in that weather half dressed and not feeling a thing.  We woke up to morning cousin snuggles and then Lilly helped Mason bounce for a while.


Katy, Josh, Dan and I (and the kiddies) headed to the stadium a little before everyone else because someone Dan works with arranged for us to be able to go on the field for a photo op (those pics are on my other camera and I'll show them to you at a later date if I decide not to use any on our Christmas card, but we got some cute ones).  It was Lilly and Mason's first time at The Rock, and luckily they were both in a great mood (and hopefully warm enough under all of those layers!).





The stadium (and really the campus in general) look SO different since Dan and I were in school.  The growth that ASU has experienced is tremendously impressive.  Boone has always felt like home to both of us, and we're both hopeful to get back there someday!

After our stadium tour, we tooled around campus for a bit and went inside where it was warm so that Mason could eat without freezing to death.


My parents arrived around noon, and we headed over to their tailgate spot after Mason finished eating.  Kickoff was not until 3:30 pm and I knew by that time that there was no way we were going to make it, so Mom, Katy and I took the kiddies home for naps (for everyone, ha!).  

After nap snack by the fire
The guys (and Syd!) all stayed at the game (they numbed themselves from the cold by consuming adult beverages, ha!) and made it ALMOST to the end before calling to be picked up - I was impressed that they lasted so long.  AND ASU won pretty substantially, which was exciting since we're moving up a division and this was the last Battle for the Mountain Jug ever (hard to believe!).  

On Saturday night we had delicious chili for dinner and didn't do much of anything.  We left early this morning - it was 12 degrees out!!!  So cold.  And there were snow flurries!!!  It warmed up slightly as we headed down the mountain, but not much...

See that frigid temp beside the time at the top of the screen?!  BRRRRRRRRRR!
We are excited to head back on Thursday for the weekend, but I am definitely going to have to find some warmer clothes for all of us!

Hope your weekend was fantastic, too.  We came home to find that the majority of the construction on the nursery is finished. It is going to be small, but perfect, and I can't wait for it to be done so I can finally feel like I am starting to prepare for this baby's arrival, which will be here before we know it.  Photos to come soon.

Happy Thanksgiving week!  I am so excited for family and food and picking out our Christmas tree.  More to come on all of that!
