{Weekend Recap} A Day Out with Thomas

Happy Monday, girls! This weekend was filled with rain, rain, and more rain. I'd like to say the end was in sight but if I did I would be lying. The rain started Friday morning and really hasn't let up since. Sadly, it appears that it's going to rain through this Friday based on the forecast. Needless to say, you can count on this mama being curled up in bed napping most of the week.

Despite the pouring rain, I decided to do a little shopping after work on Friday and ended up grabbing these adorable lace up booties at Belk. For just $30 they were a suitable lookalike to the Toms pair I've been eyeing so I decided to add these to my growing shoe collection. I'll be happy for this rain to stop so I can try them out with some skinny jeans and a piko top. 

Saturday we spent the morning sleeping in and hanging around the house. Since the rain kept us from wanting to do anything, including cooking, the hubs rode out and grabbed us some breakfast from Hardee's. After eating, I threw on some sweat pants to run to a local gift shop to snatch up a Simply Southern elephant tee before they sold out. Elephants are my thing you know (: 

When I returned home, I found Harper and Kevin in the play room. Harper had drug out everything imaginable and was wearing quite the get up. She looked adorable and I couldn't resist snapping a photo of her. She's an eccentric one (;

Saturday afternoon, we headed to Spencer, NC with the in-laws to spend the day with Thomas the Train and a few of his friends. Despite the gloomy day and the drizzling rain, we all had a great time. And thankfully, none of us ended up sick!

Sunday morning was homecoming at my parents church so we headed back there this Sunday instead of visiting my brother's church again. Afterwards we headed to Mom and Dad's for the usual lunch. Then headed back home where we spent the rest of the afternoon taking naps and watching cartoon after cartoon. I'm sure I won't win the mother of the year award for that one but sometimes a mama and her baby just needs some down time. 
Here's to hoping you guys had a fun (and dry!) weekend!
