The Weekend Round Up

{ snow day moment } Fa, la, la, la, Friday!  I'm always so happy to see this day.  I'm also a little crazy and love Monday's, too, but that's not for today!  This has been a WEEK!  Between the time change and the crazy amounts of snow and ice, I have no idea what day or time it is at any given moment. I'm 15 weeks pregnant this week and I was hoping for some relief from those first trimester symptoms, but this week sure let me know that doesn't seem to be happening anytime soon.  I have been

I just want to start this off with a giant thank you for all of your kind words on Wednesday's post.  It's amazing the kindness of strangers, and what genuine relationships and friendship you can build through the blogging community.  It literally brings tears to my eyes, hormonal or not. Ok, this week.  Please excuse any mistypes, etc.  I haven't been sleeping well because Josh has had to work a crazy schedule and I am a huge wuss about being home alone, so I am basically a walking zombie.  I

This quote really cracks me up because it's so true for me.  I feel like this has summed up my week perfectly: putting my hair up and getting down to work, with Alexa rocking my tunes. The kids were off for two days this week, which I love, but it makes getting back into the swing of things for the rest of the week so hard.  You better believe I am thrilled to see this Friday.  Does anyone else have an explosion of kids' activities and birthday parties starting right now too?  I think I may

Happy Friday babes!  I always love to see the weekend, especially after a long week.  I'm so happy it's a long weekend for the kiddos, too.  I always get so much more done when we aren't running around to and from school, so my house projects list is adding up quickly. I have my eye on some pieces at a bunch of stores that I am hoping will go on sale this weekend! I am going to add a sale column at the bottom that I will update with sales over the weekend, so make sure to check back! *side

Happy, happy Friday gorgeous girls!  We had the most beautiful spring-like weather this week followed up with freezing temperatures and a blizzard!  That one little taste of warmth got me so, so ready for the next season and now all I want to shop for is Spring and Summer!  I think it means its time to double down on the diet and hit the gym hard! This weekend is going to be such a fun one and I'm hopefully going to squeeze in some mall time today to get it going.  I haven't been to the mall

I want to get this weekend with one thought that may or may not even come your way:  the groundhog saw his shadow.  That means MORE Winter, ah!  Growing up in Pennsylvania, Groundhog Day was always a bigger deal than it is anywhere and I have religiously checked the morning of every February 2nd to see what Phil has to offer.  Nine times out of ten he says more Winter, that little sh*t.  Avery and Greyson both are really into it now and talk about it at school, so we were all waiting with baited

Happy Friday babes!  I am SO happy to see this week come to an end.  The stomach bug is still hitting our house hard and we are all trying to get back to a normal routine and normal life, sans queasiness.  I think we have hit the point where even Gingerale and Saltines make our stomachs turn. On a happier note, the crazy storm they were predicting for us seemed to pass by very lightly and the weather has been pretty amazing for January, so I am really hoping for an early Spring this

Friday, I am (always) so happy to see you!  This week was a doozy!  We started it off with a day off for the kids, which also happened to be Greyson's birthday (see post here.)  He followed up his big day by getting the stomach bug in the middle of the night.  I hate seeing my kids not feel well and this was the sickest he has ever been.  We are coming out of it now and all of the time at home allowed me to get a lot of work and organizing done.  Greyson's room is finally totally together and

Happy weekend babes!  This one is slammed with back to back activities for us, but it's all good stuff for sure!  We are predicting more snow, so maybe that will slow everything down.  After last weekend's big snowfall, everything has already melted!  This weather is straight up confusing. Did you all watch Obama's farewell address?  It was so well done I thought, love him or hate him.  My Facebook was blowing up in support of his eloquent address, many from those who did not support him,

I have so many thoughts rolling around in my head this week!  Getting all of the decorations and presents away has been kicking my butt to the point that I haven't even thought about intentions or resolutions for the New Year.  I'm going to get to that next week, that's a resolution right? I love when we get back into a nice groove with set schedules and this week has been easing us back into it for the rest of the year until SUMMER!  Avery managed to catch something and has been home, but I'll
