Mondaze! How was everyone's weekend? Once again nothing too exciting went on here. I think that will basically be the theme for almost all weekends here because time just seems to be flying by, and we really won't be in Georgia for too long. Plus! We are obsessed with our house. I think that was a huge factor in Alaska, not that the scenery was anything to shy away from, but we didn't really like our house. We did everything we could to get up and out. It was just dark, and claustrophobic. Even though there were three levels of living space, the layout was just so odd. So now that we have a house that we really enjoy, we spend a lot of time here. The backyard also helps. The kids just go back there and get lost in the jungle. The dogs have so much space to explore, and it is private. No neighbors within ear distance. When the time comes, this house will be really hard to leave. 

But, one thing that does get me out of the house So Friday night we went out for BBQ. 
And now I can't stop thinking about it. I forced everyone to get different order numbers so that I could try everything. Southern BBQ is just the best. And a large sweet tea to wash it all down sent me to hog heaven. Get it...pork ribs...hog heaven? Bad joke. No one get their Monday manners in a twist, I grew up with a mom who went through a heavy vegetarian/vegan phase. 

In any event, the food was amazing. 

Also amazing, these high-low tank tops from Banana Republic. I have them in three colors now and I kind of feel like the crazy asses running around playing pokemon go....I have to catch them all. But they really are the perfect tank. Wide shoulder length, so a regular bra can be worn. Soft, they wash well, and the relaxed fit is perfect for an indulgent day of eating. You will have to excuse the wrinkles though, holding a small child in the humidity does not make for a wrinkle rid situation. 

Other than food, I knocked out some more school supply shopping, where I bought not one but two broken binders. So tip of the day.....check the locking mechanism on the binders before purchase because nothing makes my mom crazy flag fly higher than trying to return items with children. I might be better off just keeping the broken ones and having Chris pick up new ones. 

My petty life struggles, I tell ya.
