Labor day weekend!

You know it was a good 3 day weekend when Monday night rolls around and you feel rested, relaxed, and ready to take on the rest of the week. And that’s exactly how Jordan and I felt, it was the perfect weekend. We didn’t have to much planned and even enjoyed a relaxing day up north with family. These are the times that I want to look back and remember. Carson has been a lot of fun lately and is constantly making us laugh. It was a great weekend spent with family and friends. We also were able to get some projects done around the house that we have been wanting to do for a while now.

On Saturday, i woke up bright and early to get in 10 miles before it got too hot. Saturdays are usually my longer run days and I have been really enjoying it. Having a couple hours of peace and quiet is therapeutic for me! After my run, I came home and made some protein waffles and got cleaned up. Our whole family decided last minute to take a trip up north to Prescott so we quickly loaded up the car and were on our way!

We had a great time up north even though it was just for a few hours!

On Sunday morning, we went to church and then decided to do some projects around the house. One thing that we have been wanting to do for a while now is fix our front door. We had a ugly security door on the front and I’m not sure why it has taken us this long to take it down and paint our front door, but that is what we did and it turned out even better than i thought!

After working on the house all day, we were wiped and decided to grab a quick dinner at the habit and called it a night!

Monday we pretty much did nothing. Which was perfectly ok with us. We went to the gym in the morning, did a little cleaning, and did some baking of course! I made some Healthy peanut butter cookies that I plan on sharing here soon. All in all, it was a great weekend and feel so full of thanks going into the week ahead. Now that labor day has come and gone, we are so ready for fall and all the exciting things that come with this season!

Sentence per Picture

There is so much going on in the Duncan household and I have been really awful at capturing all these special memories we have been making lately. We have family in town, so we have been spending lots of quality time with them, which has been really nice. Thankfully, I captured a few pics and wanted to share them on here. So this post is short, sweet, and a whole bunch of random.

Mimi is in town and Carson would not let her hold him for the first couple of days (he has been so clingy), but finally let her hold him on Sunday!

My sister had her annual Christmas concert at Glendale glitters. We have gone to this for years now and it has become a fun tradition for us. Last year, Carson was only a week old and we still went!

Carson has learned the “More” sign recently and I’m pretty sure I have never been more proud. Its been a work in progress and something we have been teaching him since he was 6 months old. I was convinced he would still be grunting at 40 whenever he wanted “more” of something.

Jordan sent me this picture the other day while I was at work and it made me so happy. Note that he is still doing the “more” sign. love it!

We had ugly sweater day at work yesterday, so Jordan snapped this pic for me before I left. He got up at 5:30 am (on his week off from work) to make me coffee and see me off to work. He’s the best.
