Hey there! Happy Monday! I hope you're enjoying your summer- we definitely are in the Lee house! We decided to have breakfast for dinner on Sunday night, and although I set out to make a creme brulee French toast, I kind of forgot about that part where you let the bread soak for 8 hours! #oops We made some skillet toast instead and added orange zest- yum!
Trip had his annual check-up on Monday morning, and then we packed up and dropped the kids off with their Lea-Lea for the week!
During our child free week, I did a lot of browsing and a little buying at Marshalls, Home Goods, TJ Maxx, and Ross. We're going to decorate the guest bedroom eventually, and I found these orange curtain panels that are a perfect fit for the room. I have only found one set of panels though! If you're local and find another pair, holler at me please!
I made a master list of everything we needed for back to school, and I've budgeted to pick up a few new tops for school. I got this top by Violet and Claire at Marshalls - I love the color combos!
And with hesitation, I tried this cross front tee trend and actually really liked it, so it made its way into my cart!
Robert and I mixed up our date nights with lunch dates, and we stopped by Drew's Pastry Place after lunch one day to get tiramisu for me and a cannoli cake for Robert. We met Drew's mom who was so sweet and chatted with her about their experience on Buddy Valastro's Bakery Boss. She said he and his crew were absolutely amazing and such down-to-earth people.
Don't worry- the kids were having a fun week, too!
The date nights continued, and it was fun to just sit at the bar and split an appetizer or one plate and call it a meal when chips and salsa are involved!
The new top made an appearance already!
We hit up Target to buy snacks for our roadtrip and to take advantage of the Mossimo Cartwheel deal on clothes. I'm going to miss this brand so much! I got these ballet flats with my perks coupon for just $10! Watch for upcoming deals, as I'm sure they'll have some back to school sales, and size down a half size.
We had a date night at home on Friday with steaks, potatoes, and Pandora pool-side.
After my Saturday morning run, I took advantage of the sale at our local teacher supply store and got to use the awesome gift card from my former teammates! We celebrated our final kid-free dinner at Pappadeaux - shrimp for Robert and oysters for me! I could eat fried oysters at EVERY meal- so good! We wrapped up our week with a trio of pizzookies from BJ's. I told Robert that I love him, but I'm so glad our date week is done- my waistline doesn't need any more cakes, cookies, or fried foods (oh wait, we're going on vacay- agh!)
The kids got home, and Ari got to work prepping the dogsitter for her duties!
We wrapped up our week with swimming and dinner with friends and a little Shark Week!
