Long Weekend Wrap Up

Happy Tuesday that feels like a Monday. I have a love / hate relationship with long weekends. I love having the extra family time but I get confused on what day it is. Ella had a four day weekend with having Friday off for who knows what reason and Monday for Presidents Day. 
We had a pretty good, somewhat productive weekend. It was a much needed break with a refresh.

Friday Favorites

Happy Friday. It has been a long week. This past week I have done more than I have probably done in the last 15 weeks. I am looking forward to a low key relaxing weekend to prepare for another somewhat busy week ahead and next weekend we have a 4 day weekend with no school. 




Time for some Friday Favorites with these three lovely ladies: ErikaNarci, and Andrea.

February Goals


Happy February. Where is the time going. I haven't done a goals, or New Year Resolution / Word or anything yet this year. How becoming pregnant with your third becomes so exhausting. I don't remember being so tired, or lazy, or uncomfortable so early on. They say each pregnancy is different, and boy can you say that again about this one. 

I will confess I haven't done much of anything, life has been put on hold for the most part. Brian has been amazing and picked up helping around the house, taking care of me and the kids, making dinner, doing laundry, etc. Yesterday was the first time I got out of the house with just Austin and I, since I had been avoiding that so much for numerous reasons. He did awesome.

Weekend Wrap

Happy Monday. We are having some crazy Ohio weather. Last week the kids had two freeze days with the temps being below zero, today my car was reading 63 degrees Fahrenheit, but tomorrow we are suppose to be back to the 30's. You never know what the weather is going to do. 
This past weekend we actually got out of the house and enjoyed it. 

~ Friday ~
This year not only am I my daughters Girl Scout leader, but I am also the Cookie Mom. Cookie order forms were due to my on Friday so we had an evening at home while parents dropped off their forms and Brian for a fancy to deep clean the bathroom and some of the house. It was nice spending time together and everyone cleaning, even the kids helped. 

~ Saturday ~
Let the craziness begin. Brian judged and sponsored part of an event at the Home and Garden Show. He had to be there by 10 am on Saturday for the awards show. Before that though we had to drive 30 minutes the opposite way to drop off Austin at my parents house, swing my Brian's parents house, then head off to the Home and Garden show. It was a good chunk of the morning driving around. Ella did awesome though, she grabbed a toy and was well behaved.
