Week In Review: Ashley

Hey hey! So great to see all of you back for another WIR post. 🙂 Just what were up to this past week? Let’s see…

Monday & Tuesday – The usual business of school, work, drop the kids off…pick the kids up…come home, make dinner, play, break up fights, distract the children with screen time ..then bath and bed.

Wednesday – I didn’t have work, but Cooper still had school. After Sophie and I dropped Coop off at school, we headed to Target for a few essentials and non essentials. I snapped about my Target haul that afternoon so make sure you are following our Snapchat so that you don’t miss a thing! (RAtheMOMachine) Cooper had a dentist appointment scheduled for the afternoon at two. So, instead of our usual – head home for naps – I decided we’d go to CVS. You know. To look around. Plus it was the closest place to pull over at when Cooper announced that he had to pee “RIGHT NOW!”. We lasted about 15 minutes in CVS before all hell broke loose and my children lost their minds. I got to be that mom dragging two screaming children from a store. Lots of scolding followed said incident – THEN we called Aunt Grace to seek a place to chill while killing time before the appointment. Thankfully, she and Dejan were home and willing to take us in. 😉

Cooper’s appointment went well. He’d hit his two front teeth the weekend prior, so I’d gotten the appointment to have them looked at. Sure enough they are loose and will most likely fall out prematurely. Nothing major going on though! 🙂

Thursday & Friday – These days were much of the same usualness that went on during Monday & Tuesday. Friday night we spent an inordinate amount of time playing with Snapchat filters. We laughed so hard at a couple of them! I also opened some makeup brushes that I’d bought during Amazon Prime Day.

Saturday – We were up early… of course, because why would you sleep in on a Saturday morning??? I took care of some chores around the house while the kids chilled and played. Around mid morning though we were dressed and walking out the door to go play at the park.

I had some kid free time that night so I spent a glorious hour alone in Target and Ulta before getting ready to meet up with my sister and our friend Michael for dinner and drinks. We surprisingly broke with tradition and did not eat at Chili’s OR a Mexican restaurant! We went to the Fillin’ Station in Biloxi. Grace’s husband joined us when he got off from work. After dinner, we took Michael back to his car – and Grace and Dejan and I spent the rest of the night drinking and dancing (ok so Dejan didn’t dance.. lol ) and just having a good time between the Beau Rivage Casino and the Hardrock Casino.

Sunday – Oh man, Sunday was ANOTHER rainy day here on the coast. The kids and I spent the day at Grammy and Ppop’s. Grammy and I snuck away with Soso for a little bit for some shopping. When we got back to the house Ppop had already let Cooper play in the mud (a result of all that rain…) so I figured I’d let Sophie have at it too! They had a blast. 🙂 Around five we got all cleaned up and headed back home. That night we just hung out..watched a little of the Alvin and the Chipmunks movie before bath and bed time. Sunday night was also the premier of the newest season of Game of Thrones!

And that’s it you guys…what were y’all up to?

Week In Review : Ashley


Hey hey! So glad to see you guys back for another look at what we did last week. What did we do? Not much really. Just the usual. Did I take a lot of pictures? Heck no. But what’s new??

So anyway. Let’s just start with Wednesday – you know as we usually do. Monday WAS Memorial Day, but we talked about that in the last WIR.

Wednesday we lounged around the house. The kids drug out all their toys, because would it really be playing unless every single toy was out of the toy box and half brought into the living room? Yeah. I didn’t think so. I mean. At least that’s how it goes around our house. We did manage to get our act together though and get dressed for the day at a reasonable time. Look at those cuties in their matching outfits!!

We went to the ‘park by the beach’ per Soso’s request. Sophie is finally at the age where I let her go on her own on the play equipment. I still hover close by, because she is still likely to easily fall down or you know, just walk off the side. But hey, we’re getting to more independence. 🙂

After about thirty minutes of play time the bottom fell out and we were confined to the pavilion. I had actually remembered to bring the bubbles, which were a big hit to pass the time as we waited for the rain to slack off. The kids ended up having a blast playing with each other under that pavilion.

Friday night the babies stayed with Grammy and Ppop, and mommy got to spend some time with Aunt Grace and Uncle Dejan. Their flight to Dallas then London that was supposed to leave Friday afternoon was delayed and then cancelled. That sucked for them. BUT we all got some extra time to see them before they left for two weeks. So yeah. We had mexican for dinner and then saw Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. It was a really great night. Saturday morning we all just hung out at my parents, and that afternoon I took Grace and Dejan to the airport. They are currently in London having a blast and sending us some amazing pictures. 🙂

Doesn’t that look amazing? 🙂 Anyway, what you all up to this past week?
