Weekend Wrap Up - Get Your Bread, Get Your Milk! Edition

Happy Monday, Friends!!!
Before I can go any further, I feel it needs to be noted that it's snowing in Texas as I'm typing this.  
That's right, people.  In November.  It's crazy.
And this pretty much sums up snow in Texas...


I have to admit, I wouldn't hate a Snow Day :)  We have lots of bread and milk and would be a-ok with a day of snuggles and jammies.

Friday evening (when the weekend officially starts, right??) we kicked off the weekend by playing with coasters on the tree skirt.  Because, fun! hahaha




The rest of Friday night I spent grading papers.  Literally.  Hours and hours.  But it's done, and all the teachers out there know how good that feels!  100% caught up! AMEN!

I'm still resisting putting up the Christmas decorations (I'm hoping to hold out until the weekend!), but resistance against Christmas jammies was FUTILE!!!


(PS - the jammies are from Bella Creative Expressions Boutique and the bow is Ruby Blue)

Dave went in to work (boo!) and we got dressed and ready for some serious playing.  Like, trash the house playing.  Get every toy we own out playing.  It was epic :)


The boys spent HOURS doing this and while we did have one pillow "fatality", we had no human injuries and since they're still talking about it with nostalgia I'm going to consider that a win. ;)


While all this wild and craziness was happening I was in my blardigan and Uggs - which you'll find me in from now until May.  Literally.

Two things... about the blardigan... I scoffed at the price and thought it was RIDICULOUS for months and months and months.  Then one day I decided to try it out for myself and y'all.... I've worn it every day since.  It's what I throw on over my pjs in the mornings and it's what I reach for every day when I get home from school.  On a "cost per wear" basis - it's probably the least expensive thing I own.  ANNNNNND about the Uggs... I wear like a 6.5 or 7 and these are a "Big Kid size 4".  Kids sizes go up to a 6 (so I'm assuming the equivalent of a women's 8.5????), are about $20 cheaper and come in fun colors.  Win! Win!

Later in the afternoon, Dave was able to take a break and take Luke to his friends birthday party.







While they were living it up at Splitsville, the rest of us were doing this at home...

Well, Mason was lucky enough to be doing that.  I was doing this...

While working on Christmas cards and entering grades :)

Saturday night we played "restaurant"...

... which turned into "chase"...

... and then back into restaurant.  These two are REALLY starting to play with each other and I LOOOOVE it!!!

Sunday morning I attempted a pic and got this...



hahaha.  I'll take what I can get :)

And how PRESH did GG look??? 


I had my hands FULL when we got to church and she was pretty persistent about wanting me to hold her.  Her response??? This...

She just sat there and looked at me like, "mom... pick me UP!!!"  Finally I went back and held her hand and walked her to class.  Sweet girl!

After church we swung through the country club to say "Hey" to Dave and pick up grilled cheese sandwiches and soup :)  Then it was home and time for a quick nap before Griffin and I headed to Presley's birthday party!

It was the cutest little "Babydoll Picnic" (that got moved indoors because SNOW!!!), but Griffin was waaaaaaaaaay more interested in the real baby :)

They made crowns and I was cracking up that G left hers on.

Love this sweet birthday girl!!!

I'm not sure what is happening here.... but both of these girls are SPITFIRES, so I'm not sure who won :)



G was KILLING IT in her outfit :)

Get it, girl!!! hahaha

PS - the vest in the pics above is THIS ONE from Old Navy.  It's awesome!!!

We ended the weekend with some sweet time as a family and lots of working for me.  LAST - I posted a few pics of me in some blanket scarves this weekend on IG and y'all pretty much INSISTED I do a tutorial.... soooo............ Wednesdays post will be all about the blanket scarf.  How's that for customer service!
Happy Happy Monday, Friends!!!

  12. I just love reading your posts. They are just so happy and funny and make me smil! Is it totally weird that we are having family pictures soon and all I can think is, "what would Andrea put her kids in?". Ha!! Seriously, you are the queen of layers and textures and color! So far I have both my girls in skinny jeans and their fake uggs with fur vests (Alivia's is leopard and Ashlyn's is the old navy one like Griffin's). Is it totally ridiculous to do fur for pictures?! Totally overthinking here! :)

    1. I think fur is AWESOME.... but I'd have to see the two vests together... is there a way that maybe only one girl could wear a vest??? Send me a pic of your outfits!!!

      Delete
  13. Love that you let the kids "trash the house"....sucks to clean up but it's always so much fun and they will remember it forever! I bought that furry vest for my Carly and I agree..love it. I'm still holding out on the blardigan....not sure why when I just know I would love it! And thanks for the tip on the uggs!

    1. Hahaha. I draw the line at being destructive, but there's nothing wrong with a little (or big!) mess every once in a while :) And BUY THE BLARDIGAN!!! TRUST ME!!!

  14. Omg. Why did I wait a year to buy the blardigan. Seriously wore it all weekend and thought about reaching for it this morning... But wanted to give it a break ;) That GG is getting cuter and cuter! Can't wait for a blanket scarf tutorial!! Have a happy and cozy Monday!

    1. Right?!?! I get sad on days when mine goes in the laundry.... and have been known to do a load JUST for the blardigan :)

  15. The snow they were calling for here in Ohio came over night and hasn't stopped. That video is perfect for here too! I swear half of our town skipped church yesterday to get their groceries before it all hit. lol! Crazy!
    Love the sweet photos of the kiddos playing together. So makes me want to have another! I need my hubby to come around still to that idea :)
    Ok, where is Mason's sweater and jeans from in the church photo? I love it! It looks perfect for our upcoming family photos :)

  19. As a newish Texan, the snow thing here kills me. It's been all folks are talking about. I lived in Ohio for 30 years and really, this isn't snow. But it's still fun to think of it snowing in Texas in November.
