Weekend Recap

Happy Monday! And yes, I say "happy" b/c hopefully we will be back to our normal routine today. I'll still use the word "happy" but only b/c I dried/curled my hair this morning and I'm wearing real clothes (for the first time in over a week)! #truth  This excessive snow has gotten unreal. The first storm (which started last Monday) dropped around 10 inches, then it started again Saturday. By Saturday evening we were up another foot. Again, I thought I lived in the South?? The kids haven't been to school since Friday, Feb 13th!

 Anywho, we had a pretty uneventful wknd which only involved leaving the house once on Friday morning. We braved the single digit temps b/c my little guy had his 3 year checkup.Where did my baby go??

While the kids played, I took advantage of some "free time" and worked on my son's upcoming party.

Oh yeah, and I started potty training my son! lol These ecards! I just had to share. There are certainly (obvious) differences in potty training a boy and a girl!


It was a rough start and I almost threw in the towel. But I'm so glad I didn't. I stuck with it and my son finally caught on by the afternoon on Day 1. (Below he is making tally marks for every time he uses the potty.)

And having my daughter home from school has been such a help. She adores her brother and will do anything for him (including washing out his dirty undies). She was such a big help, despite being sick herself. Poor thing spiked a fever on Friday. She's been under the weather for what seems like a week. I sure do hope she feels better soon and turns back into the bubble little girl I know.

On Sunday afternoon when I realized the kids hadn't napped and we were all a bit stir crazy, I decided to take them outside.

The sun was shining and the temps were in the high 40's! (It was a minor heatwave and I was ecstatic!)

It was definitely an odd thing to be playing in the snow w/o hats and lots of layers on. I could probably handle the snow if it was like this more often.

I do have to brag on my kiddos though, they were super good all week. They played really well together and I actually thoroughly enjoyed the week (minus the snow). BUT, I can tell my daughter is somewhat ready to go back to school. She'll tell you she's not, but I think she misses the structure and learning (she actually loves school).

It's going to be somewhat of a busy week with school (hopefully), dental appts, hair appts, dance, church, etc, but I am looking forward to things returning to normal! Be sure to check back tomorrow for a look at my St. Patty's Day decor and link up!

Oh, and one more thing, how gorgeous did G look last night in PINK?? I couldn't stay wake for the whole show, but I loved this dress. She looked stunning!


  1. I would die with all that snow. Ugh. Last week we had off Monday, ice days Tuesday and Wednesday and delayed openings Thursday and Friday...we are ready for a normal week this week too!!!!

  2. Loved Gwyneth in the pink!! We were snowed in Saturday too.. I am SO over it. Good luck with the potty training :)

    1. UGH YES! OVER.IT!

  3. So glad we have crossed paths! What a sweet family you have~
