Week In Review: Ashley & Rhonda

Hey y’all Hey! Welcome back to another Week In Review!! As we discussed last week – for the month of December we will be doing joint WIR posts – to ease up our hectic holiday schedules. So! Let’s see what the both of us were up to:

Ashley –

Alright, alright… let’s seeee. Man. This past week totally flew by, and I wholeheartedly expected it to be a slow week since we were coming off the Thanksgiving holidays. I was wrong. Oh well. It happens every so often. 😉

Things were back to business as usual. We had work and school and evening home stuff – then back to work and school again the next morning. Cooper is doing FANTASTIC at preschool. He breezes through dropoff like its NBD. On Wednesday, I even got a kiss and hug goodbye! Usually, I forgo that whole process cause I’m holding my breath waiting for him to break down. Cooper is pretty much a PreK 4 rockstar these days. His behavior is usually pretty much on point too. We DO need to work more on his sight words. But I mean. One thing at a time right? I was talking to another class mom on Wednesday and she suggested involving him in some after school activities  – so I think beginning in January we are going to look into that. It will give him a chance to have some more socialization with his peers. He did tell me one day that “He wanted to hurry up and get to school early so that he could have more time in the morning with his buddies.” Like. Who is this child?? Really though, I am OVERJOYED at his progress!

I got so much great mail this weekend…presents for the kids… and a lot of stuff for me. I kind of feel like I already went through Christmas for myself!

Saturday morning I had to wake up super early to go help set up the cafeteria for our school’s Breakfast With Santa event. My mom brought the kids up later when it started at eight am. Everything went really well – and Sophie and Cooper really enjoyed it. Sophie didn’t quite enjoy Santa – but as I’ve said…she doesn’t really need people – especially new and strange people.

Sunday – we spent a lazy morning getting ready for hours at home before we headed to my parent’s house for the afternoon where we lounged, ate, and watched an amazing Saint’s football game! That night I went to Walmart for Cooper’s weekly lunch box supplies and we ended the night with a lovely tantrum thrown by a certain four year old because he had to stop playing video games and take a bath… He’s got it rough. lol

Rhonda –

While Ashley happily snapped pictures all week, I was burning the candle at both ends.  While working my own business, I took on a role in a friend’s business and really kicked ass at that all week.  There are hardly any noteworthy things to share here, though.  Definitely go support Baths and Bliss, though. [Edit: reading this back, it sounded like I meant that Ashley was living a life of leisure while I did hard things.  That is SO not what I meant.  I just meant that I hate that I couldn’t take pictures or even remember anything cute my kids did this week.]

Saturday, we made a Sam’s Club trip, mostly just to get toilet paper.  It would be silly to pass up this huge ass box of bacon.  TEN POUNDS FOR THIRTY DOLLARS.  No brainer.

After that, we went to a small birthday gathering for one of my friends.  A lot of my friend group has small babies and I held one.  I know, no big deal to you . ME?  I’m not that person.  But she was cute and she made eye contact and I just had to.  Guess what?  I kinda liked it.

We played Cards Against Humanity and damn, that shit is fun.  If you’ve never played, it’s an absolute must.

Sunday we relaxed all day.  It was so nice to hang out on the patio with Christmas music and champagne and 73 degrees.  After dinner, we went on a moonlit Christmas lights walk in our neighborhood.  I can’t think of a better way to end a great week!

What was your week like?  Are you in full-on Christmas hustle mode yet?

 

Week In Review: Ashley & Rhonda

Hey y’all hey! It’s Monday which means we spill all the details on what has been going on in our lives over the past week. Usually we do separate WIR posts … but listen – we’ve got that holiday funk something serious. And well, we’re going to just switch things up for the rest of the year and do joint posts. – Cause we need some change.

So, we hope that you had a really amazing Thanksgiving week. We know we did. We both got to spend time with our families. Rhonda’s parents came to TX from MS, and Ashley got several days off from work to be with her local family!

At the beginning of Thanksgiving week a nasty stomach virus reared it’s head at Ashley’s house and poor Coop fell victim to it. 🙁 Also – Ashley has been struggling with a seemingly never ending cold.  Rhonda has some allergy issues that she can’t kick either. Someone want to volunteer to come take care of us??? 😉

We’re surviving though.

Then we both cooked, ate yummy food, and just spent a lot of time living in the moment.  Per usual, there were some stressful mom moments because : kids be cray. lol But overall it was really a lovely week.

After Thanksgiving we both put up our trees and started decorating the house with Christmas holiday cheer. 😉

So yeah, that’s the short and sweet of it… we compiled some pictures for your viewing pleasure! Enjoy and tell us what did YOU guys do over Thanksgiving?
