Happy Friday the 13th! We made it through another week. This week was out of sorts for us with both myself and Travis being sick for a couple of days. Thankfully, we seem to be somewhat back to normal. **Also, if you receive the email version of my blogs, sorry for the typos in yesterday’s post…#Englishteachernono #Iblamemyfever
I had a hard time choosing a favorite pic for the week…we had a busy weekend filled with so much fun, but then a bust of a week with not much (for me) going on. This pic of Hadley with her cookies was definitely one of my favorites. We had a great time together at the cookie decorating class. She’s just old enough where she knows what she’s doing, needs a little bit of my help, and it’s actually a stress free activity!
FAVORITE KID QUOTE
Last Friday, the kids went with me to Kroger for a few things. Hayden loves Cliff bars and was excited they had a new gingerbread version. He took it with him to eat before his soccer game. After the game, we went to Trav’s work Christmas party and Hayden was starving. As we were walking into the party, I saw he was still eating the Cliff bar. He said, “Is it tacky to bring my own food to this party ?” I just thought it was funny he even used the word tacky!
FAVORITE CLOTHING ITEM
It’s that time of the year when I bring out my favorite sweatshirt to wear! I bought it a couple of years ago on Etsy.
This week, my favorite foods have mostly been crackers and Sprite 😂 but I do love the Candy Cane Joe-Joe’s from Trader Joe’s. Perfect for this time of the year . Chocolate and peppermint. What’s not to love?
It’s difficult to choose just one favorite moment with Christmas parties, basketball games, a cookie decorating class, and Southern Lights tradition, but we started last weekend off right by ringing the bell for the Salvation Army. It was nice to see the generosity of the community, and I was thrilled that the kids actually wanted to take part in this effort!
FAVORITE MOM MEME
This time of the year, combine being a teacher with being a parent, and I’m not sure anyone is listening to a single word I say. haha
Thanks so much for reading. I know the holidays can be difficult for a variety of reasons…pressure of buying gifts, financial strain, attending all the events, celebrating the holiday after the loss of a loved one or while facing a difficult diagnosis. The list goes on and on. It’s easy to get wrapped up in the social media world and see all the fun, glitz, and glam, but just know, if I posted five days a week, the other two days would be what a hot mess we are around here!
Also, I’m far away from my family this holiday…so I get it. Life isn’t always picture perfect. Thoughts and prayers to those who need them during this holiday season.
I hope you have a great weekend.
