Happy Monday everyone! Our weekend was pretty low key. We hung out and watched the Super Bowl and my mom made dinner (actually she got takeout from UNO’s) on Saturday night. Our Saturday night family dinner is a regular occurrence around here. It’s my moms deal, she either cooks or orders takeout for everyone. My brother, sister-in-law and niece are also here so there is usually twelve of us. I snapped some pictures with my cell phone that I posted on instagram over the weekend so I thought I would share them with you here on our blog. My dad is dieting so here he is, getting his rabbit food as he calls it.
Meet my brother Jon and my sister-in-law, Sonia.
Saturday nights are a big family night around here. My mom (even when we didn’t live here) always had a family dinner on either Saturday nights or Sunday for everyone. I recently just spent the weekend with my college roommates and one of them asked, do you still have a Saturday night family dinner? At least once or twice a month during college, my roommates and I (all six of us) would drive to my parents for a big family dinner (and some money!).
The pizza and yummy salad cheered up my grandfather. His cat is 15 years old and not doing well so he is very upset about his best friend. His cat named “Friday” is I think, the most important thing in his life so hopefully the cat sticks around for a few more years. I don’t know what he will do if his cat has to be put to sleep. Ugh. That is a story for another day.
This is our big guy Garth, after his big o’l Saturday night dinner. Our animals have the life let me tell you. Anyway, I am curious, do any of you have big Saturday or Sunday dinners with your family?
Before I go, just a reminder that the Target $100 gift card giveaway ends tonight at midnight. If you haven’t entered, click here. It takes two seconds and who knows, you might win! Also, we will be having another giveaway here on the blog most likely the end of this week. I have teamed up with nine other bloggers and we are working with some amazing sponsors who will be giving away over $4,000 in cash and prizes. Don’t worry, we are not turning into a “giveaway” blog. The Target giveaway and this upcoming giveaway just happened to fall together. So be sure to check back later this week on all the details on our “Home Sweet Home Giveaway”.
Do you recognize any of these girls? This will be our first big giveaway here on our blog with a group of bloggers, heck it’s only our second giveaway ever, so I am so exciting to be working with these girls and the amazing sponsors we have lined up. Stay tuned!
