On to the weekend. Aunt Coco (Jake's sister Nicole) was in town so my weekend kind of started Thursday night. We went to Jake's parents house to visit with them and had dinner. Jake's sister, Hanna, was going on an official college visit so that was our one opportunity to see her this weekend, too. I stayed at my parents' house with Addie that night since I knew we'd be in town again Friday and it gave me something to do other than sit around the house all day.
Addie was excited to see her grandparents and aunts :)
Thursday night my parents set up Addie to sleep in their room so I could get some sleep. It was great. I got about 9 hours of sleep and it was wonderful. We hung out with my dad and sister all day and watched my baby videos and just caught up on life. It was really fun :)

Friday night we went out for Mexican and margs with Jake's family and then just hung out with them for the night.
Saturday we all slept in until like 9. It was fabulous. It had already been a long weekend and we all needed to catch up on some sleep. We had a slow morning doing laundry and cleaning and watching Friday Night Lights on Netflix. Aunt Coco came over and we took advantage of the beautiful weather and went for a walk with Trip (our dog). It was so nice!
Addie was enjoying the fresh air :)
Aunt Coco got to put Addie down for a nap and then she had to head home and we had to get ready for the night. Saturday evening we had a Mexican Night with some friends from college who all live in the same area now :) It's nice to have friends that are close by. We ate tacos, drank margs, watched baseball, and Addie kept everyone entertained. It was another late night but we slept in until 9 on Sunday morning again.

Sunday we went to the late service of church. Addie was cranky and ready for nap time so we left as soon as the sermon was over. I was planning on going to the mall and stocking up on fall candles and soaps but as soon as I got out of the car and smelled Max and Erma's, I texted Jake and said we should have made it a family outing with lunch. He told me Addie was awake so I could come back and pick them up so I did! We had a great lunch together :) We made a quick stop by Bath and Body Works and found out it was the last day of their 2 3-wick candles for $22 sale. Usually they're $20 a piece so it was a good deal. We got a pumpkin caramel latte candle and an Autumn Day candle. We also got soap for every bathroom and our kitchen. It was a great way to break in the fall season.
We got home and Addie napped while we relaxed. She woke up and we tried baby food for the 349820th time. We were going to let her just feed herself but it was the one time she didn't want to stick her hands all over everything and in her mouth. So Jake put some on his finger and she ate it no problem. He did that a couple times before we switched back to a spoon. She wasn't crazy about the spoon but she ate the whole serving of sweet potatoes! I was literally almost in tears, I was so happy.
We played some fetch with Trip and then went for another family walk. I love when the weather is nice enough to load her up in the stroller and go for a walk. Once we got back, Addie did some rolling around on the floor with her daddy while I watched the Emmy's.
Overall, it was definitely a fun, busy, yet relaxing weekend. Successful in my book!
