Scenes from the Weekend #2

For those of you struggling this morning, repeat after me:

Short work week. 
Short work week. 
Short work week.

This weekend was another one with no real plans which we were a-okay with. Eddie spent the majority of his weekend working on an attic project he's been wanting to complete. He added flooring to areas that didn't have any and started to re-insulate (is that even the term?) 

I kicked off my weekend with a HIIT class and it was just what I needed after a stressful week. 

Also, I LOVE my Hydroflask water bottle. If you're looking for a great gift to give to someone (or yourself) I recommend one of these. 

After the gym Molly and I had to hide in our room for awhile due to our house cleaners having to come back from the night before (long story) so we watched Daniel Tiger and had some snacks.

These two love to keep me company while I am getting ready for the day. I have to admit, they're very entertaining together, so it's a welcomed distraction.

Once the cleaners had finished working and Eddie took a break from his project we all went out grocery shopping and to pick up our Christmas tree!

Eddie has always been a fan of multi-colored lights, which I also loved when I was growing up, but as an adult, I prefer white. Thankfully this tree has both and eight different light settings, which is completely unnecessary but we're happy with it.

It didn't take Molly long to warm up to our new house guest. I think we will have to baby gate it off once the ornaments go up next week.

Yesterday was the coldest day we have had this Fall but Molly and I  got bundled up and spent the day with my parents in Delaware. Tax free shopping, woohoo!

We spent the majority of the day in the car because the wind paired with the cold was just too much for this little tamale but we had fun just being together.

We got home late Sunday afternoon, just in time for dinner which is Molly and Daddy time. While they ate I tackled a project of my own.

Molly's hospital bracelet and the hat she wore when she was born. My plan is to have it on our tree year after year until she is old enough to have a tree of her own and then it will go on hers, if she wants it too. 

I don't love how the hat and bracelet are laying inside of the ornament so I may have to buy a smaller one or glue them together somehow. 

Any suggestions/ideas are greatly appreciated.

I wanted to leave you all with this photo I came across this weekend. I shared it on my Instagram for many reasons but with this week being Thanksgiving it really resonates with me.

Take your life and make it the best story in the world.

  1. Love that quote. And omg 8 light settings, we usually always get a real tree, but each year are so tempted to make life easier with a fake one.
