Weekend Recap

I think I took the least amount of weekend photos this weekend than in a long time!


We went to the mall in the morning, I have no idea the last time I went there and this was the first time with the girls. Avery loved the mannequins and insisted I take her photo with them…


Later we took a walk, went to the park then hung out at home until Chad  got home. Oh and I finished Avery’s chalk table – the best part is cost me nothing as I had everything!

We had a mini sleep win when Chloe slept 9 hours straight!! I would say this is technically sleeping through the night but since she goes to bed at 7:30pm that still meant a 4:30am feed then back to bed for a couple hours. Still a win and I will take it!

Our morning consisted of craft time, errands and looking at paint samples – I am thinking I tackle the huge job of repainting our bedroom furniture since there is nothing a matter with it it would be a waste to buy new stuff but it needs a pick me up.


Chloe tried her first smoothie (banana, blueberries, spinach, Greek yogurt and water) and loved it: She figured out the straw so fast, I was surprised!

Just posing in her diaper both smoothie :


After naps we decided to look at some showhomes – no, we are not moving we just like to look!

Some fancy bathrooms – too fancy for me!

I was pretty happy to see the movie Nine Lives on Popcorn Time which was how we ended our night.


Since we had Tawnya coming for photos I decided to skip my morning run and go later once it was nicer out and get ready instead. I took no photos all morning as she was doing a “day in the life” session with us, we played, baked muffins, went for a walk and to the park. It was awesome to see her again, I only wish we lived closer!

She left at nap time so I forced myself into running. I wimped out going outside since it was windy and I hate running in any wind. Treadmill it was! Chloe woke up early so I just got in 6km – better than nothing!


Miss. Dramatic that I was not there to feed her the minute she got up. She does this thing where she is fine until she sees me. Silly girl!


Flying high with Dad:

This week is busy, lunch dates, yoga, doctor appointments, eye appointments, a craft sale, Halloween events and more!

    THAT BATHTUB THOUGH! God I wish I could buy a beautiful new house.
    Chloe is too cute chillin in her diaper.

    I love walking through open houses & model homes. My family used to do that all the time when I was little. It's fun and free!
    Abel does the same thing when I pick him up from the nursery after church, He's happy the entire time I'm gone but once he sees me the lower lip starts to tremble… Silly babies. 🙂

    Can't wait to see your photos!! I want to see more photos of your diy chalk table! Do you take the girls to get their eyes checked too??

      Tawnya posted one on IG 🙂 She's so talented! Ok, I'll take some photos! Lol.
      I do, took Avery before she was 1, then they said before school again, but since we are all going she will again too. It's free for kids under 6. They told me now they say at 6 months instead of age 1 so Chloe will go too.

    Can't wait to see the rest of your family photos! Love the day in the life idea!!

    I love looking at show homes but not with kids!! It was so stressful looking at houses the few times we had to take the kids. Running around, climbing on furniture, I thought for sure we were going to break something!

    Chloe and her little lip!!
