down home arkansas

This weekend was one in which:
-       I almost got my fill of sniffing baby heads (can there ever be enough?)
-       Ty and I picked out our dream lake house (well, it could use a slide out back!)

-       birthdays were celebrated by sombreros and sopapillas

- my body said, "hey Jess, do you know of this amazing thing called gluten!? Why you holding out!?"
(so I indulged A LOT - homemade bread, sopapillas, fresh pesto tortellini, pie for breakfast...!)

-       a summer bucket list item was crossed off – homemade ice cream was churned and devoured!
-       little sisters showed off their impressive tubing skills!

-       family time was soaked up (even got my parents to stay up past midnight playing games!)

-       wine time started at 3 pm sharp!

- baby red birds were rescued

- brunch at the historic Arlington hotel was savored (Ty's first time)

- Ty learned he can surf the web, pet a pug, and rock a fussy baby all at once (so cute!)

How was your weekend?
Summer is in its height, and I enjoying packing in lots of adventures!

P.S. Today I am linking up with Molly for her #YOLO series (this weekend earned it!)

  13. Aw I love the Arlington. Me and a friend went dancing with the elderly there one night, haha! We were looking to get just a glass of wine and listen to some 50s music but kept getting pulled out on the dance floor. We must have been old souls that night!
