Life Lately

Hey! I hope your week is off to a great start. Yesterday, I shared a Day in the Life post from Saturday, but we’ve had some other things going on as well. Here’s a look at Life…Lately.

Hadley is almost finished with her first season on the middle school dance team. She had a big audience last week when my brother and his family attended her halftime performance along with my mom who was in town visiting.

The same crew came to both of Hayden’s middle school games on Friday night.

Wyatt, Layla (and GG) are some of the kids’ Super Fans!

Then, on Saturday, we attended cousin Wyatt’s game. It was fun watching him shoot around with Hayden after his game.

I fondly remember Hayden playing in this same gym (and Hadley was on his team for one season!)

Since Monday mornings can be hectic, we celebrated Valentine’s Day on Sunday morning. And…by “celebrating,” I just mean we gave the kids a few gifts, and I baked some cinnamon rolls.

Maddie’s Cookie Co is the best, and I always try to order cookies from her for special occasions. She had some many cute options for Valentine’s Day this year.

Cinnamon rolls with Valentine’s Day sprinkles (and some strawberries) were the perfect easy breakfast.

Speaking of breakfast…I went to brunch with a bunch of my friends on Sunday. We went to Dudley’s, and the food was delicious.

Then, we headed to the Lexington Opera House to see Waitress. It was amazing.

While I was out with my friends, the kids were with my mom (and cousins) decorating cookies my mom had baked. Check out the ballerinas for Hadley and Layla and t-shirts that Hayden and Wyatt decorated for the Chiefs and UK.

We went to my brother’s house for the Super Bowl. It wasn’t the same with our Chiefs not in the big game, but we made the best of it. In a nod to our “favorites” dinner, I told the kids to choose their favorite appetizers, and I’d make them.

Well, Travis must have taken to heart my love language being acts of service, because when I came home from the musical, he was making cheeseburgers sliders for Hayden, and had picked up the frozen mini tacos from Trader Joe’s for Hadley. I was so impressed. Travis picked up wings (his fave!), and we took all that food to my brother’s. My sister-in-law made soup, and we all enjoyed the evening.

Then, yesterday morning, I woke up to find a sweet card from Travis. He’s known for his bubble letters! Twenty years of being Valentines, and I feel very lucky.

So, that’s a bit of our life…lately! I have a couple more posts planned this week, so I will see you back here soon.

Thanks so much for reading,

  1. Sounds like a busy but fun time! Those cinnamon rolls look delicious and fun! I always forget to get holiday sprinkles until they’re sold out at the grocery store. Maybe someday I’ll remember.
