Monday Mish-Mash!

Monday, June 20, 2016

Hi!! Happy Monday!!
How was your weekend??
Our's was really nice!!

We had some friends who are moving back to their hometown, over for a cookout on Friday night and Aaron grilled some SUPER yummy burgers for dinner.

Saturday, we went to the pool in the morning and had a picnic lunch there before heading home for naps and taking a break from the hot sun.

Sunday we celebrated our favorite guy!!
Aaron requested his favorite breakfast dish for brunch- biscuits and sausage gravy.
I tried a new biscuit recipe and they turned out SO good!
I actually made them before everyone was up Sunday morning, then popped them into the freezer. When we got home from church, I took them out of the freezer, turned on the oven and put them in the oven frozen. They came out great! It was so nice to have them already made since the process of making homemade biscuits is a little time consuming and VERY messy- not something I like to deal with when I have 5 hangry people staring at me to serve them brunch! HA! 
Here's the recipe I use to make the sausage gravy that goes over the biscuits- it is SO easy and SO yummy!
I think if you asked Aaron, he would tell you his Father's Day was just perfect :) We didn't do anything special...but I made him all of his favorite foods, the kids made him the cutest cards and we got him some new polo shirts he had been wanting and he was able to relax on the couch with a beer while the boys napped and the girls and I went out to run errands.
We ended his special day with triple chocolate chip cake outside in our backyard!

We really hit the jackpot with Aaron and it is always so much fun to have a day to celebrate the wonderful father that he is!
And now we are back to Monday!
Today the kids and I are getting organized...laundry needs to be put away and the girls need to do a little overhaul with all of the trinkets they like to hoard in their room- HA!

Hope you have the BEST day and a wonderful week!!

Linking up with my friend Johannah today!!
