Hello Monday

Hello! Well, we’ve finally thawed out here in Kentucky, and I do think that most of this week looks like we should have some normal temps and weather. We really need a regular week…I feel like the whole month of January we were out of sorts.

I’m linking up with Holly and Sarah for Hello Monday….

…to share my Weekend Wrap Up.

Well, Friday was an actual, old-fashioned snow day. Since we knew in advance that we had the day off, I was able to sleep in a bit. I woke up at 8:00!

Thankfully, we didn’t get as much as ice as they predicted, but we sure got enough to make everything messy. We also got a bit of snow on top of the ice.

I started watching The Woman in the House… and I think it’s pretty good!

I worked out and then took advantage of the fact that everyone was home (even Trav) and made a Valentine’s Day themed lunch.

I had to get caught up on a few hours of schoolwork…and then I took a two hour nap! I started to read my book and could barely keep my eyes open. I’m telling you…last week and my late work days caught up with me.

I’ve shared before that Travis and I usually try to go out to dinner around Valentine’s Day, and we did so on Friday night. I had made a reservation at Bella Cafe a couple of weeks ago, and then the kids both had plans, so our date night worked out.

On Saturday morning, Hayden two early basketball games.

After his game, I ran a few errands. I had a Target pick up and then I stopped in my favorite bookstore, Joseph Beth, for a few things.

Then, I picked up a couple of books that were on hold at the library and went to the UPS store for an Amazon return.

When I got home, I was so excited because my first ever Antique Candle Co order had arrived. I took advantage of their 40% off sale and ordered four candles. I immediately lit the Vanilla Bean, and it’s so good.

I watched a bit of the Olympics while the kids worked on their book projects. They had three choices for their project, and I swear they chose the most difficult one!

Then, it was time to shower and head out to dinner. Travis had some clients in town, and we met them (and a few of his co-workers) out at Honeywood for dinner.

Dinner out two nights in a row…who am I?!

Once we got home, I watched more Olympics and headed to bed pretty early for a Saturday night!

I slept in a bit again. I drank my coffee and watched an episode of the The Rookie ( love that show!) Then, the rest of the day was “go, go, go!” We went to church, and I came home for a quick lunch before going to my hair appointment.

I came home and had just enough time to make Shay‘s Valentine’s Chex Treats. They were quick to make, no bake, and delish.

While I was at my hair appointment, Hadley went to youth group and Hayden had basketball practice. I met Travis and Hayden at his basketball game.

I decided not to do grocery pick up this week because I’d heard (and seen on the news) how picked over everything was due to the ice storm. So, I took my list with what we needed for dinners this week and a few other things, and headed to Kroger. Things were definitely more in stock than they were at the end of the week!

I came home, and we all had different leftovers for dinner. The kids finished up their projects and vocab assignment while I worked on this post. I love watching the Olympics, so I’m ending the evening watching skiing, skating and whatever else is on!

I hope you had a great weekend. Thanks so much for reading.

  1. What a fun and productive weekend! Our date night ended up turning into a whole family outing on Saturday but I didn’t mind since our boys rarely go anywhere with us anymore. We had a delicious afternoon at the Cheesecake Factory and using ALL our gift cards it didn’t cost me anything!


  2. Pack up the Moon is so good! Hope you like it too…it’s very different but I liked it.
    Missed this post on Monday somehow – hope you ended up having a great 5-day week. When I was in the classroom those were my favorite weeks – probably b/c once Thanksgiving rolled around they were rare! You’ll get two (hopefully) then another 4-day week :). This is the tough part of the year – getting through sickness and gearing up for testing. Sending extra energy your way!
