Weekend Snapshots

Happy Monday! I hope your week started off fabulously and will be a good sign for an even better week. I think a lot of people hate Mondays, but for me, it's Sunday nights that I hate. The getting ready for the week, knowing that living in your pajamas and smothering your babies in kisses all day long, and daytime naps are coming to an end, it's just the quiet ending that I dislike.

I've had the past two weekends off and it's been wonderful to spend some extra time at home and with friends/family. Last weekend we never got out of pajamas! We would just shower and put on fresh lounge clothes. It was glorious! This past weekend we got out of the house everyday and we weren't on any type of a schedule. I love having weekends with no plans or just one event and we can spend time together as a family. The weeknights go by so quickly, I love soaking in the weekends.

We finally hung the Love Sign! It's not taunting me anymore as I walk past it everyday. I'm so happy that it's up and I love how it looks in our kitchen.
When you hang items up, do you eyeball it or measure. Matt will measure every single detail and make sure it's level and it takes him forever to hang anything. I just eyeball it and go for it.

We do all of our cleaning up in the mornings and Ellie loves watching her daddy work outside. She'll go from window to window waiving at him. It's the sweetest thing ever.

When Ellie was sick, these were our lifesavers! The Hylands cold medicine is safe for 6 months and up and totally cleared up her runny nose. So happy to have found it, I just wish I had found it sooner.

I've been on the lookout for a china buffet and saw this beauty. I sent a pic to my husband and while I was waiting for his response and shopped around, it was sold! I was so sad I could have cried.

Ellie has a shoe fetish and wanted to put her new kicks on as soon as she woke up in the morning and after her nap. She insisted on wearing them all day and hated when I had to take them off. Also, cuddles are the best!

Hope you had a great weekend!
PS Can you believe it's October already on Wednesday?!?!

I love that cabinet... a few months ago my hubby and I where at HomeGoods and I found one that looked just like it. While he shopping around, I refused to leave its side. The only way he was getting me out of the store is if a sold sign went on it and it came home with us. The beauty is sitting in my dinning room now!

I don't comment much these days (11 mo old running around!), but just wanted to pop in and say thanks for posting. Really enjoy seeing your sweet Ellie and hearing what you're up to. (Does that sound weird? Oh gosh, I hope not!)

Smart! I know to do that next time now!

Kristen said...

Thank you so much! It meant so much to me, blogging has been hard for me to keep up so I really appreciate you're interest!

We found a similar china cabinet at Home Goods! If you have one in your area, I would check there. I've seen multiples of pieces, so if you find something you love and it sells they might be able to call another store!
