Weekly Recap {10.3.16}

How oh how is already Monday? This weekend went by way too fast!

Last week we stopped at the library for story time, but first the girls had some computer time :)

Tuesday was gymnastics for Miss A! Girlfriend loves this class but she doesn't love to listen so well

Ella looked so cute before school I had to snap a pic! (her smile kills me!)

Brayden had picture day and he looked so so handsome! (This was of course after he fought me and fought me on his hair and how I was styling it)

We flew a kite some more in our backyard and Brayden was so happy he was able to keep it up for a super long time!

One morning we had some extra time for once so we were able to squeeze in a came of Chutes and Ladders :)

We were suppose to meet some friends at a park and have a picnic but the weather did not cooperate and our friend ended up getting sick so we opted for a picnic at home, the girls were thrilled!

Ella worked on her letters and I am seriously so impressed with her!

We had some fun time playing in our play room (we had terrible weather all week, rain pretty much everyday)

Friday we headed to a neighboring towns library for a fun class - before it started we played in the play area for a while

Once we went into the class, the girls were in heaven! They got to spray water into a giant bucket filled with rice krispies and listen to them crackle, they got paint with bubble wrap around their feet (although Ella wouldn't try this), they did bubble wrap hop scotch, play doh, and made bouquets of flowers in colanders. It was so much fun!!


Saturday it was dance class for Ella in the morning then I took the bigs to a birthday party

I was so excited my new shoes came too!!

dressed in my Mom uniform

Later that night we were suppose to go out with friends but we couldn't get a sitter so I ended up going out with some Moms from Brayden's school.  It was just dinner so I stayed casual and thought I'd be out maybe a couple hours, well that turned into 5 hours and I was soooo exhausted! I was the lame Mom who went home and they still stayed out! I just cannot hang

Sunday we had our nephews 3rd birthday party but before that I was working on cleaning up this antiqued window my Mom picked up for me at a local antique store. I have high hopes to hang this in our kitchen and add a boxwood wreath around it :)

Sunday night was spent with sweats on the couch eating my favorite gelato - perfect end to a fun filled weekend!

  1. Your "mom uniform" is adorable! I would like to take that fun class, I could make a mess and not stress out about it! Have a great week. Best, Cari.

  2. Girlfriend, I need your mom uniform. It's waaaaay cuter than mine! LOL! Those shoes, I love those shoes!

    I hear ya on not being able to hang. I went out with some friends of mine a few months back and I was ready to go home at nine! We stayed out until about midnight and I was exhausted, too! I think I'm more of a coffee-date kind of gal anymore. Anyhoo, looks like the kids had a fun filled week! You're such a good Mama! Happy Monday to ya!

  3. Oh that window is going to look SO pretty. I absolutely love that mama bear sweat shirt too. It looks like y'all had an amazing week that library did a really great job on their class too. Have an awesome Monday.

  4. I cant wait to see what you do with the window - it's going to be amazing!! Happy Monday! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  5. Wow you certainly had a busy weekend! I used to teach gymnastics so I love that picture of her in class!!

  6. I hope you will show us what you are going to do with the window! =) And what a great weekend you had! Have a great Monday!!

  7. Ella's handwriting is so impressive already!

    Don't you love those Converse?! Now that it's finally cooling off again here, I can finally wear mine again! It's just entirely too hot to wear them in the summer here!

    Have a great week, Lizzie!

  8. MAMA BEARS UNITE. I love that rule/title.
    Looks like you all had the best week. Super busy but filled with so much fun.

  9. Looks like a great weekend. I have a very similar sweatshirt to yours. Love the mom uniform. I live in it on the weekends! Looks like so much fun with the bubblewrap painting. I am not sure how my girls would go for that just yet.
