One of the best kind of weekends

I don't have a single picture from this weekend to share. I don't have an action-packed weekend to talk about. Our weekend was simple. Really simple and it was great.

Friday night, we had grilled ham, egg and cheese sandwiches sitting on the floor of our bedroom while watching the Opening Ceremonies of the Olympics.

We slept later than usual (if 7 AM is considered later) on Saturday and didn't do much of anything that morning. I cooked us breakfast and put the ingredients in the crock pot to make potato soup while, you guessed it, we watched more of the Olympics.

We did manage to get a few things done around the house like laundry, steaming the kitchen floors and organizing/reorganizing under the bathroom cabinets, but for the most part, we just relaxed. As we were talking about, it's the first time in the nearly three years we've been together that we've had a day like that.

I ran 8 miles on the treadmill Saturday afternoon and then we stopped by one of our favorite Mexican restaurants for dinner before taking care of something I needed to do for work.

Yesterday was relaxing, too. We watched some live coverage of the Olympics, went to church and had leftover soup for lunch. I think we even took a short nap. While Kevin did some touch up painting in our bedroom and bathroom, I ironed all of our clothes and the boys for the week and then ran 3.25 miles.

Last night, we rode scooters, played soccer and had fun with our two favorite little guys.

There's definitely something to be said about a low-key, plan-free weekend.

I love simple weekends! I'm a huge fan of the takeout and tv movie combo myself. Also so impressed by how much you run! I'm honestly pretty intimidated by running, I think it's my inner theater kid.

I find that some of my best weekends have not as many pictures as others. I'm so glad you had the weekend to enjoy. Happy beginning of the week.
