Week in review

This week was the first week back to normal after Tyson's Christmas break. The lack of adult conversation during the day, plus not getting to talk to my mom much this week means I have all this pent up stuff just waiting to get out.

Stuff that only a mother wants to hear.

But guess what?

She didn't get to hear it, so now you do. Lucky you :)

This morning Logan threw Tyson's measuring tape into a bowl of cereal. I don't have much more to say about that.

Went for my first run since Thanksgiving. Whoops! It felt good though. I'm looking forward to getting back into it.

Went to a baby shower! I love baby showers. All the anticipation of a brand new life and the joy that brings. Also, tiny clothes! I made a little hat and scarf for the baby to be.
 But before I made one for her, I had to do a practice one for Logan, right? Babies in hats: irresistible.
For some reason this day was really hard. Logan and I had different goals in mind for the day (climbing the stairs vs. making dinner) and it made for a frustrating day for both of us. Luckily Tyson doesn't mind cereal for dinner every once in a while. And, lucky for me, I got to escape the house that night and hang out with my young women.

Got to make the Martha Stewart chicken that I was intending for Wednesday! It was a little touch and go (there was one point where something was smoking and I just closed the oven door hoping it would go away, it actually did) but everything turned out great!

Logan and I also took a little trip to Nordstrom Rack to exchange a few things. He totally made up for Wednesday by being a total champ while I spent an hour trying things on and exploring the store. It's amazing what a few an entire bag of goldfish can do.

Ouch. Bad mom moment. Logan and I were walking out of the bathroom together and instead of being on my left side, like he usually is, he was on my right. I opened the door (kinda fast too, yikes!) and clocked the poor kid right in the face.

He was tough, didn't cry too hard, and the lump on his forehead meant he got to wear his hat all day ;) I felt really bad though.

We also had craft day and after working on a wreath all night I felt like it maybe wasn't turning out the way I wanted it to. I asked Tyson's opinion and he called it the pearly toilet seat.

Definitely not the look I was going for.

Guess it's still a work in progress.

And that concludes our week in review! Tyson is home on the weekends so I don't have anything bottled up from then.

Happy January everyone! Good luck with those resolutions.


  1. Heh heh heh... The pearly toilet seat.... :)

  2. For a second I thought you must have cut and pasted the chicken photo straight from Martha's website-- then I remembered the camera. WOW. Looks awesome! You are one lucky woman.

  3. Try some colored beads for an accent. Maybe that will discourage using your wreath for other purposes.

  4. You need to teach me how to make those hats! So cute.
