Can I just say that I would really love for my husband to make my breakfast like this every single morning? I mean, that’s not so much to ask, riiiiiight?
Seriously, though. The guy makes THE best egg sandwiches. <3
And that’s how our Saturday started out! Shortly after that, Jay headed out to go bowl in a tournament, which he actually missed because he had the times mixed up (WHOOPS!) so he wound up doing a few other things and it was me and the boys. :)
It wasn’t a very nice day to be outside, so we did what we could to have some more fun indoors…and pillow forts are always a guaranteed good time for about five minutes.
I was also thrilled when Lucas decided he wanted to do activity books/color, because I’d been dying to just sit and color lately!
And later Saturday afternoon, we got a visit from my brother and my parents, who just so happened to bring by a couple of pizzas (COB pizzas from Redfront, for those of you locals…the BEST!) for dinner.
It was a good night, the adults got to have a couple drinks, and the kiddos loved seeing their Nan Nan, Papa, and DooDee.
On Sunday morning, I had a LONG overdue Starbucks date with my friend, Heather.
It was so nice to just hang out, chat, and catch up, although I did feel like I had to apologize at the end of our visit because I felt like everything I had to share/catch up on was total “Debbie Downer” (hospital trip for Alex, hit a deer, kiddo struggles, everyone sick for months, just to name a few!).
I started thinking about it more on my way home, and although – yes, we have had a tough winter – I really do need to try to start looking more at the positive. So I intentionally made it my goal to keep looking on the bright side of things for the rest of the day/weekend, and we all had a great day (and hey…dare I say, we’re maybe even approaching the tail end of this current cough/cold?!). WOO HOO!
OH, and we also made the most delicious Sheet Pan Bruschetta Chicken recipe (sorry, mine does not look pretty!) which I would highly recommend.
As for Monday, unfortunately Jay didn’t have the day off from work, but the boys and I all had a great day together.
They were loving playing inside the latest boxes in the house (new car seats were needed after I hit the deer) so we spent a lot of our morning hiding in their, visiting the car wash, and just having fun. Like, legit fun. They were hilarious and playing together SO well, and it just made my heart so happy. <3
And by the time Monday night rolled around and the boys were in bed, I even took some time to finally paint my nails (I’d been waiting because I felt like I was washing my hands triple-time lately with all the germs) and get in a little more coloring.
Does anyone else find coloring just super relaxing?!
And that pretty much gets us caught up from the weekend! How about you guys? Anyone else do anything fun or have any fun plans coming up this week (I know schools are closed this week for winter break here!)?
