We had a busy week last week! Valentine’s Day brought little parties for both kids in schools, Joe working late and us attending a board meeting. I did make a delicious lasagna for dinner and even both kids gave it “all the thumbs up!”
As for celebrating? I stopped into the Dollar Tree and scooped up just a few little goodies for our babes. I knew they’d get a ton of candy at their V-Day parties, so I saw these adorable heart baskets, and filled them with a chocolate heart, a stuffed puppy, a little workbook and a balloon. They loved it! They even loved the workbooks; Brooke did hers right away and Bradley worked on his at lunch; he did a wonderful job tracing the words for each color!
Bradley did cry a little bit Friday morning saying his ear hurt, so my mom instinct kicked right in and I took him right into the Drs. Sure enough, he does have an ear infection. I’m grateful it’s nothing crazy like the flu, but I know ear aches are awful! Poor guy.
I am trying so hard carve out time to read our newest book club book. It’s a thriller and a page turner, but I can’t really read it at night–I don’t want nightmares!
- Update: I actually was on page 77 Sunday night and decided to try and read a little…and well, I just stayed up until 1 am reading to finish it! If you love a page turning thriller, scoop this one right up!
Hubby and I did get out for our first date night of the year!! 2.16.19. We had not gone out since the weekend before Christmas, as he was so sick and life got crazy. We had a delicious dinner at Good Luck and hit up our favorite spot, The Revelry for a few drinks. We are old and were home by 11:30, but it was so nice to get dolled up, out of the house and having actual adult conversations!
Sunday brought some time for Brooke & Joe to spend together. Since she’s gone to full day Kinder, she doesn’t get to see Joe that much and we could tell they needed some QT. She insisted that I took her and Bailey’s photo.
That left Mr. Bubs and I to cuddle on the couch. I hope he never gets to the point where he doesn’t want to snuggle!
He is all boy. If he’s not dressed up as a superhero, running, crashing, shooting, jumping, then he’s tinkering with his trucks, cars and guys.
While Bradley played, I sat with the laptop and caught up on some blogs; I felt called to sit and write. I have abandoned this little space here for some time, but I know that it always waits for me to return. If you’re reading this, hello! Welcome if you are new, thank you for returning if you’ve been around for a bit. Hubby swooped home to gift me with a Matcha Latté and it was divine.
I also worked on some advertising for our social media pages. I’m on the fence about joining Rachel Hollis’ business coaching. I really love her and I think I would learn so much!!
Recently a new BK went in around the corner from us. The kids have been dying to check it out as they have literally watched it form from the ground up! I think they just love the crowns.
The rest of the day was relaxing, as you’re supposed to work 6 days and rest one.
