pizza luce, playdate, a little shopping

friday night we dropped off azalea with thatcher's parents and then headed to pizza luce for dinner with my best friend kelli and her new man, jake. :) it was our first time meeting him! those kind of meet ups have a lot of potential to be awkward, but he was great and we had a fun time hanging out with them and eating way too much pizza! 

saturday morning i hosted a little play date for four mama friends and their kids. two of them are neighbors who live on my block, one is a neighbor who lives behind us, and one is a girl who i met through our mutual friend jackie, and she happens to live in our neighborhood too! it was a lot of fun! the kids are still at an age where they don't really play together but i think they had fun. :) i'm looking forward to doing it again soon! 

after azalea's nap, she and i went to visit my parents for a bit. they are in town for a week, so my dad can get started on the next phase of his treatment. he had another pet scan again last week and it showed that his tumors have shrunk even further. we are so happy and thankful! we hope that this new maintenance phase of chemo will keep the cancer in check for a long time, but it's very hard to predict. thatcher had plans in the evening, so i hung out with azalea and then lounged on the couch after she went to bed. 

sunday morning i took azalea to lambs group at church and then we met my mom for the 11:00 service. azalea was craaaaazy all through the service. i had to take her out about 8 times. last time i took her she was great! she keeps me on my toes, that's for sure! we were supposed to have our friends nate & missy and their kids over in the afternoon, but they had to cancel. azalea was down for her nap, so i took the opportunity to go out and do a little shopping. i got these great boots at old navy for only $40. i've been wanting tall brown boots forever, so i was excited to find them (and for cheap!). 

the rest of the night was spent just relaxing at home. thatcher had a meeting in the evening, so azalea and i had play time. this weekend flew by per usual!

I love the pic of all the kids in their own areas, so cute! Glad to hear your dad's results, I'm sure you guys are elated to hear that news!
Those boots are cute! I always have a hard time finding tall boots that I love and aren't going to break the bank :)
