Hey hey hey! Here we are again for another peak into our lives this past week. So great to see you here, and don’t forget to chat with us in the comments – we LOVE hearing from you guys!
Alright let’s see…what did we have going on this week? Well, last week was Cooper’s first full week at his new school. I am incredibly happy to report that drop offs are getting better and better. He’s really trying his hardest to not breakdown during that initial separation at drop off. And even when it is rough the rest of the day is really fantastic. He always always is in a good mood about school in the afternoons, and doesn’t really dread going back until right before he has to enter the building. Worry. Fear of the unknown. Then all of that turns into stress and anxiety. Poor bubs. 🙁 We’re working through it though! I’m just so happy that HE’S happy!
Want to hear a mom fail though? I didn’t send anything with him for show and tell last Friday. I expected that they’d send a note saying what letter to represent for show and tell, but I never saw that note so I thought maybe show and tell was not happening? Wellll, apparently the information for show and tell is in the weekly newsletter that comes home on Mondays. Soo yeah. I felt awful about that. 🙁 I won’t forget this week though! 🙂
Wednesday we did our usual Wine Wednesday LIVE video on our Facebook page… if you haven’t liked our FB page.. you should go do that pronto so that you are notified of when we go live! This Wednesday we will actually be TOGETHER for Wine Wednesday LIVE. Trust me. You do not want to miss that…so come join us, grab your preferred beverage of choice and chat with us!
Also, I had some really awesome packages in the mail box this week…a new Lipsense color and my August Ipsy bag!
This weekend was really great. I spent time at my parents, per the usual, but on Saturday night I got to go out with my sister and a friend of ours. We started out in downtown OS and eventually made our way to Biloxi for some casino night life. 😉 We drank, talked, listened to live music, danced, and even saw a proposal….right in the middle of the dance floor at the club! LOL
Sunday, we enjoyed the pool and more family time. Cooper got to take a trip to the Bass Pro Shop in Mobile, Al with my mom and brother. They said he was amazed when he stepped foot into the building. For my little outdoors loving dude – The Bass Pro Shop is pretty much equivalent to a Disney trip!
That night I was feeling pretty proud of myself because I did a little meal prep for Cooper’s daily lunch box. I bought these new containers from Target over the weekend and went ahead and packed four days worth of lunches. So now all I have to do is pull the container from the fridge and stick it in his lunch box each night – instead of spending time every night packing his lunch. Why these particular containers you ask? Well, I was already using little separate plastic lunch box food storage containers, but I felt like they didn’t really fit well in his lunch box and also that was a lot of lids and bowls for him to have to deal with. These new ones just have one lid that he’ll have to take off and put back on, and the ‘bowl’ part is divided into three sections. The larger section is great for a sandwich or wrap situation, but he doesn’t eat sandwiches or wraps. I just used some cupcake wrappers to create little sections within the larger one to put pepperonis, turkey, cheese, and a sweet treat (Oreos or mini muffins). I couldn’t find the exact ones I bought from Target on their website, but these from Amazon are extremely similar.
And there you have it! What were you guys up to?
