MMMM + How is my baby one??


By some miracle,  I ended up getting to go home by 2 on Friday and you know what I did? I took a nap. I think Ash got home around maybe 4 and we did one of our workouts, saving the 2nd for Saturday. He went to Magic and I made dinner for the kids. I took a different route with them: I just made food instead of asking what they wanted. I made some Kraft chicken and broccoli skillet and because they didn’t anticipate anything, they actually liked it! Weee! I managed to get BG in bed and then them and hour or so later and then Ash got home so our night was all couch sitting and and-of-week-rejoicing. Sadly, on Saturday, my children all woke up waaay too early.

BG was up by 5:15 and the boys by 5:45, which is earlier than a week day! Bleary-eyed, I made coffee and then their breakfast. By 8 AM, Elliot and I were at Target shopping the tax free weekend. I didn’t need much: just the supplies for Isaac to enter VPK and I wanted to buy Elliot a new pair of shoes. In the end, I spent about 60 but only paid taxes on 25 of it. Not bad! We went into Whole Foods for steaks (and potatoes but they were out of them!!) My morning felt so harried that I was kind of exasperated by everything. BUT, we had a nice big lunch and then everyone napped. Ash and I watched 300:Rise of an Empire (it was OK) In the afternoon, we played outside for a bit but man, it was pretty hot – about 95.

Sunday was Dakota’s first birthday! Since my parents are probably coming in a few weeks, we didn’t do any major celebration but everyone slept until almost 8 (Thank you, Lord) and we went to Jenny’s for breakfast. She loves her some eggs and we love that restaurant. They made it a bit nicer since the last time we went: a new wall mural and new tablecloths really go a long way.IMG_20140803_084602IMG_20140803_084123

Right after, we headed to the JR Alford greenway. In March, my mom and I went looking for the new Lafayette Heritage bridge that connects that greenway with Tom Brown park but we went the wrong direction so this time, I knew where to go. It was a nice walk in the woods: we saw lots of mushrooms and various bugs and the bridge views are amazing.20140803_094304

So that day was pretty good. We got things cleaned up in the house and watched some movies, played with toys and we gave Elliot back his video games. He was on a month-long ban but it only lasted a week. He did, however, articulate what his did wrong and why they were taken away (breaking a window.) In the afternoon, I took just the boys out for ice cream and we ended the night with spaghetti and reading/a Wrestlemania recap show. All in all, a great weekend!

  1. Glad to hear you had a good weekend. We had tax-free weekend here, too. We didn’t take advantage for ourselves, but we did help two of our children. We loaned them them the money to buy computers. It gives us joy to be able to help them out when we can. It’s nice to have you on the dance floor with the 4M crew. Hope your week is filled with high energy, get-to-your-feet music to keep you movin’!

  2. No tax free weekends here. But I do pretty good with the thrift store shopping for the boys. Not a whole lot I still need to get them, but I will take advantage of the sales next weekend. School starting is creeping up really quickly.

  3. You must have had a good work out with those songs – AC/DC – woo hoo! It got us movin’ too this Monday and that’s what this blog hop is all about. I love the picture with your boys under the old covered bridge btw. Have a great week to go with your wonderful tax-free weekend and keep the music playing!

  4. Congrats to Cody! 1 yr, birthday! We have a Dakota also, but my grandson is going to be 10 this November, and we call him Cody! Got some real rockin’ tunes here my friend! You have definitely rocked the house! Thanks for joining usl
