Babysitting In Louisville!

This past weekend I was in Louisville babysitting my cutest cousins and let me tell you, watching an 8 and 5 year old is no joke. I have a new respect for all the moms and dads out there.

Lets start with Thursday…

Most of the day was spent doing this:


I was feeling slightly overwhelmed after going through the never-ending Chick-fil-a drive-thru and may have taken the wrong exit to drop Trent off with his grandma before Lydia’s gymnastics. We were on our way to Cincinnati for 10 minutes before I realized and this is how we felt about it…


Once we finally got to gymnastics 15 minutes later, I dove into the Southwestern Chick-Fil-A salad. So spicy and so good. Don’t worry, I also inhaled some waffle fries because how can you not eat their fries?!


Friday morning started nice and slow with an Acai bowl and lots o’ coffee.


Later in the day I made a cappuccino on my Aunt and Uncle’s glorious cappuccino/espresso maker. I want one of those things like now.


It was pretty stormy all day on Friday so we hit up the movie theatre. Why doesn’t Bowling Green have a movie theatre with recliners??? I say we petition for one.


We got there like 45 minutes early but once the movie started, that place was PACKED.

Lydia was feeling to well so we skipped out on the rest of the movie and headed back home. Danica ditched for me and the kids for a 2 hour nap so Lydia and I cuddle up on the couch with puppy chow while this puppy stared us down…


Turns out he was only staring because I had peanut butter on my face and I think he wanted some.

Friday night ended with Danica and I splitting a Simple Truth Margherita pizza while the kids chased down their brother Jake and his girlfriend, followed by a walk around the neighborhood.

Saturday afternoon Danica and I made our way back to BG. When we got to my parents house I roasted up every vegetable they had and ate it with 2 slices of butter and jam toast. I was exhausted and this was pure comfort food for me. Plus, I got to see Barrett after basically a week apart and it was WONDERFUL. I love that human.


Roasted Vegetables: Olive oil, honey, teriyaki, zest spice blend, pink salt, pepper. Roasted at 400 for about an hour. Topped with nutritional yeast after.

Sunday was super restful. I slept in until 9:15 on accident and got ready super quick for church at 10. After church I did some laundry and a deep-clean on Cassie and I’s house, cleaned S&R (my other job), and made my way to my parents house for my dad’s cooking!


If you haven’t tried Zevia yet, I suggest you try one! It’s sweetened with Stevia and super refreshing.


We had organic brauts (brats?) on pretzel buns, local corn, local watermelon, and a local tomato/feta/cucumber salad.

Everything was delicious! Thanks dad!

All this was followed by a trip to DQ in my dad’s old convertible while listening to Old School Rap.

One of the best Sundays I’ve had in a while.

I hope your weekend was just as great!
