Tuesday already! These past few days were a blur. The weekend was highly dominated by Asher's swim meet both Saturday and Sunday. But first, on Friday night we still squeezed in our date night: Switched it up from nachos and got a big quesadilla to share instead! Neither macro friendly nor low carb, but, delicious.… Continue reading Weekend snapshots + shoes for Costa Rica
Gosh, this week was supposed to be kind of a "down" week after our holiday festivities, but as usual, it's managed to still feel rather full! It's been a nice week, just maybe not as super low key as I thought it might be. Still haven't sorted my Christmas pictures, either! So stay tuned for… Continue reading This week
Happy Christmas Eve Eve. We are just about to what I consider "the good part". Meaning, the part where all the "work" is over, and we can just hopefully relax and enjoy the fruits of our labor. As I mentioned, my maybe favorite part of the season is actually early December. But the 24 through… Continue reading Getting close to the good part
2 days until Christmas Eve! I'm just about ready. I actually glanced back through my journal from last year on this day, and I can see I was way behind on wrapping gifts last year, to the point that I apparently spent much of Christmas Eve frantically wrapping stuff. Thankfully, that is not the case… Continue reading Almost ready + 2022 Christmas card!
Okay, feeling more human today. I think just being over the middle of the week hump helps some, and knowing that today (Thursday) I don't have any big meetings or appointments on my calendar feels really refreshing. Having a generally "open" day has become one of my favorite things. haha. I can just focus on… Continue reading Just what I needed (and, didn’t)
This past week has been FUN! And, I'm tired now. Hahaha. Yesterday was our last "action" day of this Thanksgiving week, which as you know by now, has been full of theater performances, shopping, cooking, lots of amazing family time, Thanksgiving, decorating, work and more. My parents were slated to leave yesterday (Saturday), after being… Continue reading A 4-part busy Saturday; now ready for a quiet day!
I'm glad we opted out of the Sunday swim meet session and got home Saturday. Leading into Thanksgiving week, I needed Sunday morning to regroup a little bit. Ethan had to work at 7, so I ran him over there at 6:45. Ivan and Asher were up pretty early too because the World Cup was… Continue reading 2022 Family Theater Outing: Come From Away
Hello, Monday. Wish you were still another day away, but, here you are. The weekend was good! Looking at the calendar, this is the last weekend for a LONG time that I don't have some sort of "bigger" event or other going on. Therefore, I really tried to take advantage of it and get some… Continue reading Holiday planning/ holiday stress + something I’d never done before
Writing this from a markedly "lighter outside" 6 a.m. Monday morning, now that Daylight Savings Time has ended... Yes, we set the clocks back this weekend. I know this can be a big deal to people with little kids + sleep issues, but fortunately, I think we're past the stage where this ruffles our feathers… Continue reading Weekend snapshots
I wanted to write a recap of our mini fall getaway last weekend to Wisconsin Dells! We stayed overnight just one night, but spent most of 2 days there. October 15th, Saturday: We had gone to that UW Badgers hockey game Friday night, so we were a little slow moving on Saturday. The idea was… Continue reading Mini-fall getaway recap: Wisconsin Dells
