This was our first weekend home after our honeymoon and we was nice and chill.
Friday night we had plans with our small group to grill out and hang out at the pool. It was nice to get together with them and we had a great time!
Saturday Cooper and I got up at our normal time and let dad sleep in. So after Cody woke up I let them have some daddy-Cooper time since I get a lot of his attention being home all the time right now.
Saturday afternoon Cody and I went downtown to Hampton Park to take a walk and so he could get some Pokemon Go play time (love my nerd!). This park is great because it is like a hidden gem and tucked back away from the road. It was hot out but there was plenty of shade to break it up.
Saturday night we went to check out a new brewery in Mount Pleasant called Ghost Monkey. It had a great vibe and I actually liked the beer! We first did a flight to try a few different ones then we each picked one to drink. I got one called Skinny Jeans, a session blonde. The only downside was that they don’t have AC so it ended up being cooler outside than inside.
Sunday we finally made it to church after a few off weeks. And it was a great day to come back because they started their series “At the Movies” again! This was the series we started on last summer when we moved and it’s great because they take popular movies from the past year and analyze them, connecting them to God. We took a look at Inside Out this week and boy did it hit me good. Inside Out is all about emotions and the message was about keeping emotions in check and not letting one emotion dominate you. I’m excited to see what the rest of the movies bring to light.
The rest of the day was pretty chill since the rainy weather finally fell. We both did separate workouts while the other hung out with Cooper. I also did my usual meal planning (below) and did my week’s to-do list (can you believe there are only 3 weeks left until us teachers have to begin going back to school?!).
Last night to celebrate National Ice Cream Day we went to our local ice cream shop and picked some up. And we were definitely not the only ones with the idea… there was a line about 20 people long when we got there but it was worth it! It got my fave – mint chocolate chip! I love the serving size they give you here… believe it or not, this is a small.
And here is a weekly dose of our Cooper! I’m doing a post later on covering our experience so far as puppy parents.
