Whew! You guys, I feel like I’ve been going non-stop over here. It’s been crazy lately, but a good kind of crazy. Oh my gosh and let’s not forget that spring has officially arrived and that I also spotted a bunch of robins whooping it up out at the bird feeder today – so YAY for that! Spring is by far my favorite season! Ahhh! I’m soooo ready for warmer temps…and leaves…and flowers…and green grass…and to actually go outside… Bring it on, spring!
But first, blog. 😉
Last Monday started out with Henry having to dress up as a job he’d like to have someday for his school’s March Reading Month. He chose to dress as a teacher. At one point he told me, “But Mama, I don’t have any teacher clothes!” Lol! It was a real concern for him. A sweater vest and a bow tie for the win! Doesn’t he look dapper as a teacher? Hmm…although I’m not sure many teachers wear light up shoes…or maybe some do…I don’t know. *shrugs shoulder* 😉
After school on Monday we came home and worked on a St. Patrick’s Day craft since I’ve been majorly slacking in the craft department these last couple of months. I’ll go ahead and blame it on the weather.
On Tuesday and Wednesday, I started painting a chair (this is just one coat) for the nursery makeover for my friend Ashley.
On Thursday Sara and I (and our little ladies) ventured out of town for a few hours while our boys were in school. Oh man, it felt great to get out of the house and step into a Panera, Hobby Lobby and Target! Oh my gosh, we had so much fun!
On Friday we sported our green and celebrated St. Patrick’s Day! My Great Grandmother’s maiden name was Smiley… It doesn’t get more Irish than that!
I didn’t really have much planned for St. Patrick’s Day so at the eleventh hour the kids and I whipped up this leprechaun trap!
As you can see, our leprechaun got away but he managed to leave a note for the kids along with a trail of Lucky Charms…that messy leprechaun forced me to sweep silly leprechaun!
On Saturday we attended a birthday party at our local bowling alley for some twins from Eliza’s preschool. The kids looooved it. Everyone was so nice and welcoming. We had a fantastic time!
Later that evening, Henry and I got all dressed up to go to our first Mommy/Son Dance!!!
Henry danced all night…well…for an entire hour anyway. LOL! Let me tell you, boyfriend has got some moves! Oh man, he was so excited to start dancing! At one point he even proposed to me. This boy, I tell ya’. Love him. I said, “yes,” of course!
Here he is already dancing while we stood in line to have our picture taken…
On Sunday I headed over to my friend Ashley’s house and met up with my friend Katy and her husband, Jake to get started on the nursery makeover. This is all I’ll show for now, but I promise a full reveal sometime this week. Also, I need to tell you that Katy and Jake did the majority of the work. You guys, this couple is crazy talented and I learned sooooo much from the both of them! They need their own tv show or something.
This pic below provides proof that I was actually there and that I contributed a little bit…and by a little bit I mean…I was there…mostly to eat snacks…and hold things in place…and occasionally hammer a few things in place…and take a nap… Ha!
No, I wasn’t really napping. Or was I? Stay tuned. Dun Dun Duuuuun!
Meanwhile, this happened to my own house while I was away for six hours…
On Monday, this meme made me laugh…
…she’s three, but I can relate.
That’s it for now, but, like I said up there ^^^, I’ll be back sometime this week with that nursery reveal! I promise. It’s too good not to share! EEK!
Last week began the second week of summer break. Two Mondays ago my sister started a new running challenge over on MapMyRun. Being that the kids are now home with me all day for summer break and that I can no longer go for mid-morning runs alone we decided to lace up our running shoes…
Happy Tuesday to one and all! Who else was excited to wake up to it being Tuesday? Oh man, I love that today is Tuesday! It also means that we’ve got a short week ahead of us – WOO-HOO for that! I sure do love me some weekend! As for today, it’s a tad gloomy…
Hey guys! I thought I’d link up with B Loved Boston and join in on the life lately/weekend recap link-up fun. We’ve been so busy over here lately and I finally have a second to breathe, so why not breathe and blog a little, too, right?! The start to our weekend/Christmas break didn’t go exactly…
So, over the weekend I decided to play catch up on all things life. It wouldn’t have felt right to go on about my summer without having had blogged about some pretty significant events that had recently taken place in our lives. If you’ve got lots of time on your hands and feel as though…
Welp, here I am. I’m fiiiiiinally blogging for the first time this week since last Friday. Last week and was utterly exhausting and this week has consisted of attempting to clean up from Jane’s birthday party, blog, create content for Instagram and pack for our upcoming trip…all of which I seemed to make zero headway…
Last week was…well…it was an odd one. It was to be the kids’ first full five day week back to school, but some a few germs had their own idea. You wouldn’t have thought the week would be anything but butterflies and rainbows, but it quickly turned into fevers, throwing up, chills and naps. Yuck….
