Foodie Friday & Merry Christmas

First of all, from my family to all of my lovely readers – Merry Christmas! I hope everyone has a magical Christmas filled with lots of love and sugar πŸ™‚


We had a quiet week, it was bittersweet being that it is really my last week as a SAHM. I am so ready to go back to work, but like anything the unknown (working full time with two kids) is also scary to think about. The girls are back in dayhome in January, and I go back the second week to work! My office is currently closed for the holidays so it is really no different than other years now to have this time off.


I wrapped the last of the Christmas gifts! So with the exception of stockings and Santa gifts everything is under the tree – we have tried hard to last few years not to go overboard and have done quite well!


We met BeckyΒ for lunch which was good to catch up but it went too fast while tending to the girls too – thanks for being a patient lunch date Becky!

The girls spent the afternoon fighting over toys (what else is new?!) and we got Avery’s letter from Santa in the mail:



One of our last yoga playground mornings πŸ™ The good news? The studio/cafe is close to my work so I will still be there – probably too much but I know A will miss yoga class a lot. My Mom joined us for coffee:


We stopped by at my office where the girls got some gifts from my friend/co-worker, with nothing planned for our afternoon it was perfect as they new toys kept them busy!

I actually got OUT for a run with the girls, I felt so tired and worn out I knew a run outside was my only cure so off we went. Both girls slept so I did a couple extra walking laps at the end too:


I debated going to spin that night but decided to rest my legs instead.


A run to start my day that was way too interrupted! I am actually looking forward to moving my runs to early mornings or after the girls are in bed for this reason. Then my Grandma and brother came for a visit, we went for lunch and just hung out. I took a few photos and nothing else all day!

Our daily dance party – hence the blurry photo

Later we went to dayhome to pick up/drop off some papers and stayed for a visit, leaving always upsets Avery so much she wants me to go to work and leave her there to play πŸ˜‰ So happy she loves it there so much and will have no problems adjusting! Chloe on the other hand might have a rough few days.

I crawled into bed at 8:30pm and watched a Hallmark Christmas movie that I had started to watch on my run and then called it a night.


I had a few places to go in the morning and both girls cooperated getting out just after 9am…that was until we hit the first store. Avery had the worst public meltdown to date. Thankfully other shoppers tried to help me with her but she was not having it. I ended up hauling her out to the car screaming and sitting in the car until she calmed down since I could not even get her in her seat. Guess who is excited to go back to work?! HA. We finished our errands, stopped at Starbucks for my sanity thenΒ went home.

Avery insists on feeding Chloe all the time now:


I forced Avery into napping so I could recover πŸ˜‰ After naps we headed out for a walk to the park, it was too nice of a day not to!

    Aw lunch was just fine! I love spending time with you girls, and Avery makes me feel like a million bucks with her reactions when she sees me lol.

    Sucks about the public meltdown. You know you're not alone and this phase will soon be forgotten <3
