All kinds of no plans.

There was no real game plan for weekend.  Just how I like it.  So, we had an impromptu spaghetti-dinner-sleep-over with the cousins.  They stayed up waaaaay too late for being in the under-6 crowd.  B had to walk across the hall to lay down the law once or twice.  I woke up suddenly a little after midnight, shocked to not hear little voices.  I snuck over to check on them, and PTL everyone was sound asleep on the floor.  Seeing them all snug makes me long for the day that Becks has a sibling to stay up late with :)

Earlier today we visited the Cincinnati mecca of all super markets: Jungle Jims


Jungle Jim’s is a crazy big super market mecca of everything. Like forty dollar ostrich eggs.  In case you ever need the equivalent of 36 eggs.  In one egg.  {Sidenote: that completely grosses me out.}

We bought Becks that coconut.  I have no idea what we’ll do with it.  He’s pretty excited about taking a hammer to it, though.  Sullee and Chels went with us, too.  Dang, she’s cute.


They have an entire mile of the store dedicated to candy.  It caused a lot of internal debate for Becks as he had to choose from a wall of a thousand Pez dispensers.  #kidproblems

We had a lot of fun.  I felt like a tourist.

The day ended with dinner at my parents house – pinto beans, cornbread, and mustard greens.  SO YUM.  There might’ve been a little flying the friendly skies via Papa Airlines, too.  Oh, to be four.

Then we came home and Becks decided he wanted to sleep on the floor again. I let him.  What’s another night on the floor?  Plus, there will be a day when he doesn’t sleep on the floor, in a spot I made, with Snoopy and the gang.  And, I’ll miss it.  So, sleep on the floor he will. 


I love having no plans weekends :)

I used to LOVE sleeping on the floor with my cousins! Every summer we would visit my grandparents lake house, and my cousin & I always slept on the floor in a closet..ha!

Oh Jungle Jims! I used to live less than 10 minutes from there as a kid, and my sister and I used to love going there because we could see the big Elvis bear and all the other cool stuff in that store. I still love to go there! I recently took a friend and she was in awe too. Whenever I head north with friends, I try to convince them that we should stop at Jungle Jims! (I live in Louisville now, but my family lives in NKY so I visit often.)

I SO want to go to Jungle Jims! But the last time we ventured up that way, we stayed awhile at Ikea and the Monroe outlets, so we had no time or space left in our car! (or money to spend, ha) That ostrich egg....legit weirds me out. Yuck.

Sounds like a fantastic weekend! :)

My son chose to sleep on the floor for a while too. As long as he is in his room, I said it was fine! They like to share the control, and that was an instance when it was ok! :)
