A very Mama Mia-full weekend

Weekend Recap: Friday night- Asher had swim practice from 6:20-7:35, so I drove him to that. After, Ivan and I went out for our pretty typical Friday night date night, to his friend's Mexican restaurant. We, as usual, got the chicken and steak "nachos fiesta", no sour cream, add raw jalapeno. If you're wondering if… Continue reading A very Mama Mia-full weekend


A few laughs + pandemic memories

Yesterday I sorted through and cleaned out my April 2020 photo folder. As you all would know, April 2020 was when most of the world was on pretty tight lockdown mode.

The morning was fairly lazy but included checking off a couple more months worth of photo organization. Still chugging along on this photo project. Ethan and I cleaned out his closet. It badly needed it… Continue reading I am not throwing away my shot

The Witches and Weekend Morning Routine Dilemmas

Last night we watched The Witches, the 2020 movie remake of Roald Dahl's classic (and childhood favorite of mine) book. The boys and I have read that book several times over the years, too. I'm actually a big Roald Dahl fan in general and read most of his books as a kid. The remake is… Continue reading The Witches and Weekend Morning Routine Dilemmas
