Hey there, happy Monday! How was your weekend? Ours was pretty good- Wes sorta got back to normal in his napping so that was a huge load off our shoulders. Phew! Backing up a couple days…

Friday: Not much during the day on Friday. Tyler came home with some new beers to try, so I had one with dinner (chicken fajitas!). Once Wes went to bed, we watched Ridiculous 6 on Netflix. It was ok- your typical Adam Sandler movie.

Saturday: After a low key morning and a long walk with the pups, we headed to the Y for the pool. I am really starting to dread it because the water is either cold or I am freezing once we get out! Poor Wes cried when we were changing afterwards because he was so chilly! Next week is our last class, so I’m trying to enjoy it while it lasts!

Once Wes went down for a nap, I went out to run some errands. By the time I got back, I had to quickly whip up an appy, bake cookies and shower before heading out to a Christmas get together with some other local blogging friends (Leigh, Brie, Jen, Ashley, ย & Ange).

We did a gift exchange and I wound up with my own gift. WOMP. The one I originally chose was stolen (DRATS- I loved it!) and I felt bad stealing someone else’s knowing they’d get stuck with mine. Does that make sense? Either way, I think I’m overly bummed about it. Anyone want to trade gifts with me? haha


UGH. This makes me realize how much I hate my hair these days. Color it? Cut it? How do I *do* it?ย I am officially paranoid that it doesn’t look good anymore. Are you silently judging me? Photo cred goes to Jen

Sunday: Same old Sunday routine-> I got up with Wes, napped once Tyler got up, we watched tons of football, did laundry, walked dogs, blah blah blah. BONUS: Tyler made a cheesecake! It has to sit in the fridge overnight so I can’t tell you yet if it’s good or not but I’m about 1,000% sure I’ll love it.

That’s it in a nutshell! Lots of Christmas movie watching and baking this week so hopefully more to report on that later!

  1. Bummer about the prezzie. These sorts of occasions take more thought than is usually realized. And the hair thing. Go wild, get a buzz! Just think how much you will save on hair products and “do’s”, to say nothing of the time saved playing with it.

  2. Wish I could have joined you girls! I need a girls night out lol.
    Love your appys!
    I am happy we are done swim lessons, I was starting to dread them, also a 2 year old in swim lessons is challenging some days!

  3. Sounds like a fun weekend! That app idea is adorable! That same thing happened at a yankee swap that I was at- not with me, but with another girl. I always make sure I buy something I’d like to receive… which is usually wine ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Aww I feel bad now that you went home with your own gift! But honestly, it made for a hilarious “twist” to the game ๐Ÿ˜‰ I think your hair looks great – you’re too hard on yourself! Let’s get together soon – girls nights need to be more often!

  5. I love the cute little appies you made.
    Honestly, I try to buy something I want for myself for exchanges and then try to get it because I ALWAYS end up with the lamest gifts. Like this year, mint marshmallows and a bell ornament. Someone ended up with a cooler of beer. WHY COULDNT I GET THAT! Sigh.

    I think your hair looks good. I dont’ know what you’re worried about?

    • Haha yeah, I mean my gift was good but it just felt like I didn’t even participate since I went home with my own! I think I’m just paranoid because there is 6 months of roots and I can’t stand it any longer!

  6. Thanks again for driving on Saturday night ๐Ÿ™‚ And I totally forgot to take your cookies! I’ll come by tomorrow to get them…seriously, haha. I found that even going to the warm pool (Vecova) I was always cold when we got out. I need my hair done too and my roots are driving me nuts (but they are only 8 weeks worth…my hair is growing fast lately!)
