labor day

We love long weekends around the Carter house and this one was perfect in so many ways.  We got to eat lots of delicious food, enjoy cool weather, spend time with family, snuggle with our niece, and watch football!  Today the temperature outside is 70 degrees and it feels so amazing--I can taste fall and it makes me so happy.

Our weekend in photos:

Saturday night we went out to see T's brother, Austin, do his running thing at the Memphis twilight classic.  Let me just say he's the man, running a good 6ish min mile.  Way to go Austin!

We came home to watch the [recorded] Ole Miss game since we'd been gone with T's family all day.  This is how my boys watched the football game.

Sunday night my parents had us over for this delicious Emeril shrimp dish.  My mouth is still watering thinking about it. Oh, and mom made a chocolate cake! yummy.

Here is our little weasel pup Sunday after church enjoying our couch blankets (he loves when we pull those back out from being up in the summer).  I decided to just sit on top of him where I was sitting and he didn't budge.

Yesterday was the perfect weather.  We got to sleep in and enjoy a lazy morning with coffee and bottletree blueberry muffins (blueberries from our trip to Shreveport).  We did some yard work and then headed out to ride bikes on the Greenline with my parents.  T likes to be artsy with [my] iPhone camera and apps.

 We closed out our Monday evening with our good friends, Ross and Audrey, watching the tube and enjoying chatter among the 4 of us with some killer ice cream sandwiches! See, weekend of deliciousness all around.

This weekend made me so happy to my favorite season coming around the corner.  Looking forward to more weekend football, bike rides, and yummy fall food!
