Parading Through the Weekend

Happy Monday all! We had a “cool front” come through and it made for a GORGEOUS weekend in the 70’s. Unheard of for Mississippi in May, but I’m not complaining.

On Saturday morning, I got up at 5:15 to go run 6 miles. I wasn’t exactly looking forward to it, but when I was done I was so glad I got out early ahead of the warmer weather. Also, my view did not suck.

I hurried home to pick up Bobby and Emma Kate, as we were meeting some of his workout buddies and their families for a workout at the local high school track. The kids all entertained themselves while we ran/worked out. I didn’t do all the workout with them but I did run another 1.5 miles for a total of 7.5 for the day.

This weekend was our local parade of homes, so since bobby’s mom was in town we asked if she could watch Emma Kate while we spent a couple hours looking around, I LOVE looking at new homes so I had a blast. There are some gorgeous houses out there yall!

We grabbed a bite to eat after and came home in time to put EK to bed.

Sunday morning was church, and a baby shower for our friends in our class who are due in a couple of weeks!

After Emma Kate took a VERY short nap (she is killing me with the short naps!) We loaded up and looked at some more houses on the parade of homes that we didn’t get to the day before. There are some gorgeous, very expensive homes in the area. Way out of our price range but it was fun to dream!

We spent some time outside in the afternoon playing with Emma Kate’s new water table we got on sale at Sam’s. She had a blast and played for over an hour before dinner.

I love that it has an umbrella because our backyard is very sunny in the mornings.

I wish I could bottle up the awesome weather we had this weekend and bring it back in July!

QOTD: What did you do for the weekend? Is there a parade of homes where you live?

  1. Girl the weather was amazing this weekend! I LOVE looking and dreaming at new homes as well!!!

  2. I love looking at new houses too, but there is no such thing as a “parade of homes,” at least not that I’m aware of. It sounds fun though! Gotta love dreaming too!

  3. It was gorgeous here too both days. This is about the time of year when it does start to warm up, but we’ve had a wet spring so who knows when it’ll start getting warmer.

  4. This weekend was perfect…loved the weather!! I too love looking at new homes! So much fun! 🙂

  5. How fun. We have Parade of Homes here too. In fact years ago as I was getting through my Interior Design degree, I used to decorate some of the homes in them. So much fun, and yes some people I have decided have so much money, some of those homes are just so huge and beautiful!
    I’ve never toured them myself for fun, I may have to try that sometime!
