We had a great weekend. There were no set plans, which is so nice for a change every now and then. Saturday we took the kids to Chik-fil-a. I guess it was kind of for me, too, because I LOVE Chik-fil-a. It all started back when I was pregnant with Ella Grace. I craved it all the time. I at least ate it once week. That may be the reason I was as big as a barn, but she and I sure enjoyed ourselves! Now, I love the food, but even more I love the atmosphere. I love that they play Christian music in the background. I love the little bag that comes with the highchair complete with a Purell wipe. I love how clean it is. I love that Evan can eat there on his wheat-free/dairy-free diet (it is extremely difficult to find fast food that he can eat). I love the super cute senior citizens that float around refilling drinks. I don't know if every Chik-fil-a is like this, but the location we go to is just great! The kids love it, too.
We have started going to a new church a couple of months ago that we are enjoying so much! They even have a service on Saturday nights, which is great for us when Derek has drill weekends, so we can still go as a family. We loved the last Saturday night service we went to so much that we went this Saturday night as well. Ella Grace has yet to warm up to the nursery though. She ended up going to church with us. She was very good, but she was after my cracker during communion! Food does not get passed that girl!
After church, we had our very own reverse progressive dinner. One of my blog friends, Hillary, loves cupcakes. If you haven't read her blog, you should check it out. She is preparing for her wedding, and this girl LOVES cupcakes. However, I always leave her blog craving a cupcake! :) She has been blogging about this cupcake store in our area. It is located in this charming little shopping district, and Saturday night there was a special event and all the merchants were staying open late. So, after church we went by to check it out and it did not disappoint. We got these...
They were very good and very rich. After the weekend, we still had 2 1/2 left. We just couldn't eat them all! They were worth the trip though. Thanks, Hillary.Then, we went to eat pizza. Isn't that terrible!?!? I should mention Derek and I both started eating healthy today. The fun is over. :)
Also, over the weekend, I picked up a baby gift. I didn't realize how much I miss shopping for a baby boy! I thought this little romper was perfect for summer with the little crab on it, and I liked that it is orange and not blue. The matching blanket is lightweight which I think will be perfect for those summer naps! I hope they like it.
Well, that just about wraps up our weekend. I hope you all had a great one. I look forward to reading all about it! Have a great week! Hugs!!!
