Phew! The past week and a half has been a little crazy. There weather has been pretty amazing so we’ve been getting out of the house a lot. We’re trying to enjoy it as much as possible because even though it’s only the end of August, winter will be rearing it ugly head before we know it. We also ended up applying and starting homeschooling. But I’ll talk more about that later. Anyway, here is my WITL recap of Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I’ll be back to my regular posting now. : )
Friday, August 7th
This little monkey came walking into our room around 6:30 and wanted some snuggles. I can never say no to that request.
Once we were up she wanted to give me a check up. Luckily I got a clean bill of health.
After they ate their breakfast they were playing so nicely while I was getting some work done.
We went to see their Aunt Mindy for haircuts. Neither one had had one all summer.
Then is was back home to eat lunch before I took the kids back to Michael’s to get a Mario mushroom that Hudson wanted so badly.
Fridays are my regular cleaning days. I usually try to get it done early, but that didn’t happen today.
This mushroom was such a big deal. Our whole day pretty much revolved around it. Kids are so funny that way.
Hudson talked Daddy and Harper into playing real life Mario Kart with him. Even though this shot is blurry I love it. You can see that Harper and Jeremy are laughing and following along behind Hudson.
Later we decided to go to Lazlo’s for dinner. We wanted to go have a beer and let someone else cook for us.
My parents were on their way down for a visit so after dinner we went home to wait for them. I was not good about taking photos today. I kept forgetting about it and then taking more back to back. It’s not ideal, but I can work with what I did capture.
Saturday, August 8th.
Whenever my parents are in town my dad goes to pick up donuts for breakfast. It’s his thing and the kids love it.
We just hung out and talked for a while before my mom and I went to the Goodwill to do some thrifting.
Everyone was ready for lunch by the time my mom and I got back home so we went to B&G Tasty Food. It’s one of my parent’s favorite lunch spots when they come to town.
We went to check out a few shops in a part of town called Midtown Crossing. My mom and I were loving this couch at Hutch.
They also have this amazing quote on the wall.
After that we went downtown to the Old Market to check out a few more shops. Hudson really wanted his picture taken in the Old Market Passageway. In fact those wet spots on his shirt are tears because he didn’t think we were going to take it in the right spot!
We went home and my mom and I had to run to Target for a few things. Then I made dinner for the kids before heading back down to the Old Market for dinner at Nicola’s for our anniversary. First we had drinks at Blue Sushi while we waited for a table at Nicola’s.
Nicola’s Italian has one of my favorite meals of all time called Salmon with Lemon Garlic Cream sauce. It is out of this world delicious.
When we got home Hudson was still awake so Jeremy put him to bed while I hung out with my parents.
Wrigley our dog loves to cuddle. She’s a total lap dog whenever anyone is on the floor. She is also in major need of some grooming. Yikes.
We watched tv and talked for a while and then it was off to bed.
Sunday, August 9th
It was my final day of documenting and I did a very poor job of taking photos. I always feel like I’m taking more than I actually am. I’m a little disappointed with what I ended up with for the day, but I’ll make it work. At least I got something.
Before my parents had to head back to Sioux Falls my mom and I went to Kohl’s. She wanted to buy the kids some new tennis shoes as a back to school gift. They needed them desperately so it was perfect.
After they left we went and got coffee and then drove out to the Outlet Mall to Gap. My sister sent me a 40% everything coupon that was only good that day. Jeremy and I both need some new clothes. We found some stuff we liked and got it for a great price. While we were there I caught Harper singing and shaking her booty in the mirror. I got a video too. It was so cute.
We saw Dr. Tom at the mall. If you’re from Nebraska or like Nebraska football then you know what a big deal this was. I would’ve waited to get a picture with him, but it was super hot out.
I recently ordered a subscription for this magazine and I love it. I think it was $6 for a year on a FB advertisement.
Hudson’s obsession with Mario continues. He drew all of the characters and he and Harper play games with them.
They ate dinner while watching Curious George Halloween on Netflix. They think it’s hilarious.
Hudson starts school tomorrow so I set out his clothes and his name tag they gave him to wear.
Then it was bath time .
And time to brush teeth before stories.
And there you have it. Our Week In The Life recap. It was a very ordinary week for us. Perfect for documenting our everyday lives. Now I need to put my album together!
