Hello Monday: Friday Night Fun, Trader Joe's Wine, and Fall Fashion

 Since I  was traveling last week and had a big work event, I missed Friday favorites. I decided to mix things up a bit and jump into Hello Monday and tell you a little bit about my weekend instead. I am linking up with HeatherJohannahTanya, and Linsdsay for their Hello Monday link party. Let's do this!

Backing up to Thursday, I arrived back in town late in the afternoon after my work trip and I was just wiped out. Hockey Guy finished his homework and then he and Running Daddy went over to our neghbors' house for a little Thursday night fun. I had dinner in bed...at 7:00 p.m. A little chicken burger, some Birds Eye Steamfresh veggies pasta and some sliced watermelon, with a glass of wine. Dinner in bed at 7:00 p.m. felt weird and fun all at the same time.

Back in the office and prepping just in case I happen to have jury duty on Monday. When I arrived home, Running Daddy and Hockey Guy were pulling in from track practice and they had our take out dinner waiting for us. Score!

A quick dinner, a freshen up and an Uber ride and we were off to our friend Hockey Mom M's 40th birthday party. A Good time at the Whiskey Bar was had for our girl. She is always a person whom I rely upon for Good judgment in the often nutty world of kid's sports.  

We got home fairly early and had time to catch up on Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders and Racing Wives


The boys got up early and did the Travis Manion 9/11 5K run while I headed to get my hair done. 

After getting cut, highlights and brows done I headed over to Loft to get a few items for fall. You can see my new hair here and a few things I picked up.

After a quick shop I ran to Trader Joe's for a few essentials and was excited to see that the Gluten Free Pumpkin Bread mix was in stock. I grabbed four boxes and some wine.

I am also loving this Chilean chardonnay that they sell at Trader Joe's. Here are the standards I have been picking up lately.

After a late hockey practice we had dinner and went to bed.


Running Daddy and I got up early, had coffee and got caught up on Dallas Housewives. If you are not watching Dallas Housewives, you are missing out. 

After Mass, the boys got Krispy Kreme and then they headed to track practice and I went to get our grocery order. After a quick lunch, Stormy and I had a nap. I have been fighting a cold and just the general exhaustion from a big work event.

Since this will be a busy week where we will need a lot of grab and go, the only real meal prep I did was make pumpkin white chocolate chip muffins. I am excited to make them and cannot wait to have them in the morning. They are the Best.

Hockey Guy, Running Daddy and I met back here after hockey practice and had a quick dinner. After a quick review of his Friday folder, we watched Ferris Bueller and then all got ready for bed.

We will have a busy but Good week coming up with PTO meetings and Back to School night. I love this time of year.

Hope you have the Best week. Thoughts on Hello Monday? Should I keep this up?
