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?

Week In Review: Ashley

Hey there! Another week has flown by…we are getting dangerously close to Christmas and the end of the year. I’m just going to be one of THOSE people and say “I can’t believe it’s the end of year already!” I’m also going to be one of those other people and say how this whole time change thing was a real doozy this past week. I mean, I really really like that it is daylight now by the time I get up between 5:45 and 6 am. However, when it turns dark by five pm – and I look at the clock around 8 or 9 – it literally feels like I’ve just been through the longest night ever cause it’s not even close to being finished. Seriously. It really felt like the evenings were just super longggg.

Besides that? What did we do? Oh you  know – the usual. Side note alert : I really hate when I’m talking to someone I haven’t spoken to in a while, and they ask me “So! What’s new…or what have you been up to? etc.” I’m just always like – the usual. lol Like – do you want to know the nitty gritty details of what’s going on? Cause if so I do actually have a lot to say. But I mean, if you’re just wanting some huge new thing that’s happening – wellll I’ve got nothing for ya dude. Anyone else feel that way? Anyone else feel annoyed by that? I’m not saying don’t ask me how it’s going…just maybe you know – ask something more specific, because most likely you are actually curious about one thing in particular OR you don’t actually care and you’re just asking out of social politeness.

So anyway, things have been really good and relatively calm around here. Cooper is doing AMAZING at dropoff. He’s just walking into that classroom like its no big deal. He doesn’t even say goodbye. 🙁 🙁 I might have teared up in the car one day … BUT I’d much rather have no goodbye hug than leaving a distraught little boy at school.

We’ve started to really let Cooper play video games on the PlayStation. The whole thing began as a reward for keeping it together at dropoff – now he’s just freaking obsessed. I’ve had to learn to navigate turning the thing on and changing out discs which was pretty comical one night when I had to resort to Google’s help in the matter since his Dad wasn’t answering the phone. But – we’re doth doing pretty well…sometimes I’m even able to help him get past parts he can’t figure out in certain games. It’s been one of those moments where I look at him and stare in disbelief at the little boy he’s becoming. He’ll be five in four months which is so crazy. I see other parents with five year olds, and those kids just seem so much older than him…because in my mind he’s still a little baby. Gah. Excuse me while I go cry for a few minutes….

Alright – what else …what else? I feel like I’ve been doing laundry everyday all day and yet every morning the hamper is full again…what is up with that? That’s mainly what we did this weekend – chill and do chores. On Saturday, we hung out with Aunt Grace and hit up one of our local nature trails. The weather has finally been cool enough to be outside for an extended period of time without melting away! Oh and – Something monumentous that happened? I cooked breakfast on Saturday morning. I hate cooking. But I especially hate cooking in the morning. But I was craving Stuart’s Omlet and since I can’t drive to Fort Worth real quick – I had to try to do one on my own. 🙂 I did get to have dinner with my sister, brother in law, and friend Michael on Saturday night which is always always a blast. Sunday we went over to my parents. My Mom is out of town so we definitely missed her, but it was still a really nice day. And then we went home in the early afternoon to settle in and get ready for the upcoming week!

What about y’all – what have you been up to?

Week In Review: Ashley

Hey hey..what’s up you guys?! Yet another week has flown by and here we are back for some more week in review blog posts! Let’s get into it and see what we’ve been up to.

Tuesday was Halloween – So, after work I met up with Shaun and the kids at his parents house to get ready for Trick or Treating in Downtown, OS. This has been are tradition since Cooper was born. I like it because there’s guaranteed candy for the kids, and I don’t have to escort them while knocking on strangers’ doors. Because – for real – approaching strangers for anything is the absolute last thing I want to do. The Trick or Treating situation downtown is that local business owners (and maybe just non business owners who want to participate .. .I’m not positive ) line the sidewalks of downtown Ocean Springs, armed with buckets of candy to give out to the children. The parents and children all get in line and casually walk down the sidewalks collecting the candy. The Ocean Springs High school Drama Club was also there doing some dancing to Thriller which was entertaining. Sophie was very impressed, we had to hold her back from running up and participating alongside them. lol  We got there 20 minutes early so we did have to kill some time just standing in line – with a 4 & 2 yr old. So, you know that part was a BLAST. 😉 Actually, we suffered for a hot five minutes before I decided to give in and follow the kids around while they did some exploring, and Shaun stayed back to hold our spot in line. We collected candy for an hour which was when Cooper started saying he was ready to go home. So we just hopped out of line and made our way back to the car.

 

Wednesday,  Thursday  and Friday were all the same same around these parts: work & school stuff. Ok – well that’s not true. Wednesday I was off work. Sophie and I snagged Aunt Grace for a couple hours of Target + Chick Fil A + Beach/Park time. It was the perfect weather for being outside! That afternoon when I picked Coop up from school he randomly requested the trampoline park and since he’s been doing so well at school I decided .. why not!? So we got drinks, socks, and a change of clothes before making our way to the Mullet Hop. The kids had a blast, and they were both super tired that night which was a major parent win win. 🙂 🙂

Friday night I let the kids stay up an extra hour. I never do that. I am like a bedtime/bath time routine sticker. We don’t waiver. We do the same routine every night at the same time. It works well for us – and I generally get a solid two hours of uninterrupted me time after they are in bed. Anywaaay – So Friday night I was feeling generous. Sophie didn’t seem to notice, but Cooper LOVED having more time to play video games which are his new obsession.

We actually spent a ton of time at our own house this weekend. We only went over to my parents for a couple of hours. It was nice and exhausting to have all that solid just me and the kids time. I got sooo many things done that I’d been meaning to. I’m in the process of cleaning out my makeup collection, so I took lots of pictures and listed things online for sale. I decided to try my hand at selling some gently used clothing as well – so I took pictures of that stuff on Sunday. I cleaned my car, we went to the park, we made a Walmart AND Target trip and I of course did tons cleaning around the house. And so by nine pm I was in the bed.

What were you guys up to this past weekend? How was your Halloween?

Week In Review: Ashley

Hey there party people! Welcome back to another Monday of recapping what fabulous things we’ve been up to. 😉 What are those things you ask? Let’s see, shall we?

I was off Monday, instead of my usual Wednesday, since it was Columbus Day and my office was closed.  That was nice because I got a three day weekend and an extra day to recover from the routine interrupter that was Hurricane Nate. The kids stayed with my parents Sunday night – so after I picked them up, we just spent the day doing a little grocery shopping, cleaning, and preparing for the upcoming week.

I also felt like it was the longest short week ever…seems like short weeks tend to turn out that way sometimes. Cooper had his very first field trip on Tuesday. He got to go to a pumpkin patch, but the thing he was most excited about was getting to ride a school bus! Simple pleasures really are the best. 😉  Speaking of Coop and school, he is still doing really really well. He started speech class the first week in October – so I got to have a meeting with his teachers which was even more encouraging. It just really makes a world of difference when your child’s educators actually care about the success of their student(s). Everyday I hurt for Coop and the experience he had to go through, but I am grateful for the path we took because it led us to his current school. I’m not a big believer in coincidence and ‘meant to bes’ – I think we forge our own paths from the circumstances and situations we put ourselves in…but I can’t help but say that this is the school he was meant for. These are the teachers and staff that he needed in order to be successful. He is so incredibly happy there…and we are so incredibly overjoyed that he’s happy there. 🙂 🙂  IF you have no idea what I’m talking about…check out most of my other WIR posts for the scoop on our rocky road to PreK. 😉

Wednesday was Wine Wednesday Live on our Facebook Page! We had a blast!! If you guys aren’t joining us…you totally should. 🙂 🙂 I got some new Lipsense in the mail this week which is always always a highlight!

It dawned on me Thursday morning, that Sophie’s long awaited 2 year birthday party was happening on Sunday, and I need to get my shiz together to start planning for it. That actually just meant that I started making more concrete plans in my head and didn’t actually buy or execute anything until Saturday – like a true procrastinator. 😉 So yeah. I spent a lot of Saturday running around – gathering things for the party. I had a minor hiccup when searching for croissants at my nearest WalMart. They had none. I mean. Are you surprised? Cause I was. I don’t normally buy croissants, BUT I know I always seem them there…except you know, when I needed them most. Why did I need croissants so badly? A Pinterest endeavor…duh. Whatevs..Winn Dixie came through for me on Sunday morning – so it all worked out.

Sunday was party day! We just had a low key, immediate family gathering at my sister’s house. Sophie really enjoyed herself which was all that mattered. It was also super fun for Coop – he loves when we all get together.

Anddd there you have it…my week in a nutshell. What were you guys up to? Any fun fall activities??

Week In Review: Ashley

Hay y’all Haaayyy! Happy Monday. 🙂 I had a pretty jam packed week/weekend, and I can’t wait to share it with you guys. 🙂

Our week started with me facing five days of doing all things parent related on my own since Shaun was going out of town for work. He and I usually share kid drop off/pick up responsibilities, but since he would be gone it was all on me. I know. That may not seem like a big deal, but it is pretty exhausting doing it all by yourself. However, by the end of the week I felt like the three of us handled it just fine. I even remembered to pack Cooper’s show and tell item for Friday! **high fives all around**

Speaking of Cooper and school – he has been doing really well. His dad had been dropping him off everyday so we were really worried that with me now bringing him we’d have to start all over in the department of his separation anxiety. BUT at Monday drop off he did not get upset or cry AT ALL. He whimpered a little bit at the classroom door, but was calm and collected when I kissed him bye. I wanted to cry from relief when I got in the car. The rest of the week was pretty smooth as well. He did cry each day, but each day the crying has become more and more controlled. I’m so proud of him. AND he’s been loving his new lunches I’ve packed. I’m surprised everyday that I open his lunch box and he’s eaten almost everything inside. He requests to take a picture with his school sign at least every other day which is incredibly cute.

Rhonda came to town on Wednesday and stayed with us until we left for Fort Worth on Friday evening. Cooper was enamored with her. On Sunday night he was still asking about her and when would she be coming back?? lol I know Soso enjoyed her company too…she’s just not as vocal about it as Coopy is…I think she gets that from me. 😉

Since I was off on Wednesday – I got to pick up Coop from school. Sophie loves seeing “Bubba’s tool”.  As we walked to the car, they held hands. How freaking adorable is that???

Rhonda and I did our Wine Wednesday Live (on our Facebook Page) that night. It was so fun to actually get to be together in the same place when we filmed!

Thursday night I got to go out with my sister and Rhonda for ladies night at The Chill inside the IP Casino. It was so. much. fun. There was a fantastic band there to listen to and we did lots of dancing. I had to take a picture of the floor where I parked, because I am so bad at remembering where I park. Does anyone else do that?? lol We had a fantastic time that resulted in a late-ish night……Then I had to get up for work the next morning. Oy!

Friday evening after work Rhonda and I piled in the car to make our way to Forth Worth for a fun weekend. The 9ish hour drive wasn’t so bad. Actually about three hours in we were feeling like rockstars. Then. Well then we started getting hungry, and we couldn’t find a an exit to stop that met our criteria. We wanted to exit somewhere that had a gas station and food place within seeing distance of the exit. We ended up having to wait until we got to Alexandria, LA – which met none of our pre established criteria. Sooo after a long trip to Chick Fil A that began with somehow ending up in a random mall parking lot and ended with a near death experience via an almost collision with oncoming traffic – we had food in our bellies, gas in the car, and were back on the road for the last leg of the trip. From this point on there was lots of made up milestones that kept us motivated and encouraged until we finally made it to the DFW.  We rolled in just before three am, and after a little house tour, guzzling some water for our severely dehydrated bodies (we’d avoided drinking for the last 3-4 hours so that we wouldn’t have to make a potty stop), and chit chat with Stuart – we crashed in our respective beds.

Saturday day was just a lazy chill day. After a super delicious brunch served by Stuart, we made quick trip to Target and Ross for some things I’d forgotten to pack. The rest of the day was just lots of time hanging on the couch while talking and relaxing. Sometimes it’s just so nice to be still and present and not have anything pressing to do. Rhonda and I did a little live Get Ready with Us broadcast on our Facebook page. That night we went to the Stockyards and hung out at a our go to bar. There was some really entertaining live music. We snagged the perfect spot right in front of the dance floor and band. We were continually impressed by the dancing skills that were demonstrated on the dance floor. Seems like knowing how to two step is a Texan (or maybe just Fort Worth?) requirement. 😉

Saturday night led to Sunday morning and we found ourselves once again up until after three. After sleeping in Sunday, we had another fantastic brunch then got ready to head to the airport. I was pretty dang sad to leave…but I couldn’t wait to get my hands on those babies waiting for me back in Mississippi.

 

 

 

Week In Review: Ashley

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?

Week In Review: Ashley

Well well here we are again at another week in review! Thanks so much for coming by. 🙂

We had a decent start to the week. If you read last week’s WIR you know that I went on and on about Cooper and his struggles with separation from me when I drop him off at school. So, as I said last week I made a plan to start implementing some of the things the school suggested and some ideas I came up on my own. He was still crying when he got dropped off, but his teachers were saying that the crying didn’t last long and he ended up having a good day.

However, Wednesday changed things. I’m not really ready to get into the full details of what went on that day. I actually even considered not saying anything at all on the blog, but I have been pretty open about our struggles with transitioning to school and I thought it would be odd if I just all of a sudden stopped talking about it. Anyway, long story short? Cooper is no longer attending the school he was going to. We’re searching and considering different options. I probably won’t speak about it again on the blog until we’ve nailed down a solution and have settled in.

So yeah. Wednesday was rough – and the rest of the week just kind of flew by after that. Friday night Cooper and Sophie stayed the night with Grammy and Ppop. To say they were excited is an understatement. 🙂

Friday night I spent some time working on room decor updates in the kids’ room. I’m doing a black, white, and gray color scheme. They’ve been sharing a room for a while now, but I never got around to decorating it before. I thought that we’d be moving soon. That never materialized though. So, I figured I’d go ahead and implement my vision. 😉

I did a little shopping Saturday morning before heading over to my parents. We just hung out…did a little more shopping with my mom. 😉 You know. The usual.

Cooper stayed another night with my parents. He spent the whole day with them while they checked out a cabin in Lumberton that they are renting later in October. Sophie and I hung out with Aunt Grace for a bit – then just had a low key day at home. We gathered up Coop that evening and came back home for the usual usual at home. 🙂

Both the kids seem to be having another allergy flare up so that’s been pitiful. Hate seeing my babies sick. 🙁

What were you guys up to?

 

Week In Review: Ashley

Hey y’all hey! Welcome back to another Monday of Week In Reviews. 🙂 So glad you’re here. Ok, sooo prepare for lots of me going on and on about Pre-K drama.

Monday & Tuesday & Wednesday were pretty typical. As you know (or don’t know if you don’t regularly read my WIR posts…) we have been riding the struggle bus when it comes to getting Cooper adjusted to full day Pre-K. He has been freaking out at drop off each day. HOWEVER We had some fantastic days of drop off during the first part of this week! Cooper didn’t cry one bit which was super fantastic. I really felt like we were making some progress.

Then. His teacher called Wednesday afternoon to say that he’d been having a hard day. She said he was whining a lot and very concerned about what was going to happen next…as in he was asking her this every five minutes or so. The wanting to know what is next – well that’s just his personality. He’s super aware of his surroundings. He always wants to know the span of events that lie before him. I can understand though how that is frustrating. Because seriously you guys, some days I have to tell him “enough with the questions…I’ve already told you this over and over again.” She did suggest that maybe he needs more one on one time and attention from me. I get that. I decided I’d start making more deliberate attempts at giving him my attention in the evenings. Also, she thought maybe he was trying so hard to keep things together for my sake at drop off that the emotions were coming out throughout the day now. Thursday he was pretty upset at drop off BUT nothing major.  So that night we went to Chick-Fil-A and played at the playground and I took him to Target to pick out a toy for being so good at drop off for the four previous days.  I wanted to give him some positive reinforcement.

Friday morning was a rough rough rough. I’m pretty sure he sensed that it wasn’t a normal day. He could tell that I wasn’t going to work…we weren’t rushing like we normally do. So, about an hour before we had to leave he started getting upset and crying. I normally attempt to console him and do everything that I can to get him calmed down and not crying. However, that day I decided maybe he just needs to cry at home and get it all out of his system? So I let him go on and on. I told him it was ok to cry at home, but when we get to school he has to stop. Did that work? Hell no. He was in major freaking melt down mode once we got to school. I was crying. He was flipping out. It was bad bad bad. I actually told his teacher I was considering taking him out of school. She urged me to take him home that day and think things over, because the truth is that he’ll have to adjust now at Pre-K or later at Kindergarten.

I could tell that he was just doing all that he could in order to get to stay home with me. As soon as he realized he was going home he stopped crying and pitching a fit.

I honestly believe he has some major anxiety issues. I know part of it is that he just can’t control his anxiety and emotions. I get that. I feel for him. It’s stressful on both of us..and sometimes I make it all about me and how it makes me feel and how emotionally draining this whole process has been on me. But I have to remember that HE is the one going to school.

So. I’ve decided to implement some changes and start reinforcing routine for the morning. I don’t know how to fix his anxiety and make all of our transition problems magically go away, but I do know that he thrives in a routine. So yeah, I’m making some changes to our morning so that it will always be the same and consistent – you know as much as I can…I can’t control everything. Unfortunately. 😉 And his dad is going to start dropping him off .. I think that not having to leave me will help.  And I’m also going to do a calendar that we’ll put stickers on everyday that reflect how that day went at drop off and give him little rewards each day when he does well.

But yeah. We shall see if that all makes a difference.

This weekend? We stayed home. Took several trips to Target. Sunday afternoon we did get out for a bit to go the Lynn Meadows Discovery Center in Gulfport. If you are local, you should definitely take your children there. Sunday afternoons are a great time to go because it’s only $6 to enter. That night I made Sangria and watched the BEST Game of Thrones episode from this entire season.

There you have it. What have you guys been up to? Anyone else have some transitioning to Pre-K stories similar to mine? If so, tell me and make me feel better by saying it all worked out in the end. 😉

Week In Review: Ashley

Dang. The weeks literally are flying by. I think especially having this weekly documentation … it just puts into perspective how quickly time can seem to go by. When you know. In actuality. Time passes at the same rate.

Also. I have this thing I’ve been meaning to do. Like this big life changing thing. I keep putting it off. It requires some confrontation…and well. I hate confrontation. Not to mention. Well I did mention – but it’s life changing. So anyway. My weeks are going by quickly, because I have this thing on my to do list that I keep skipping over. And another Friday gets here and I’m like damn. I still haven’t done the thing. And it’s just really making me sad. The whole thing. The thing I have to do and me not doing it…

Ok. Sooo anyway…to the things I actually did this week. 🙂

Being real here – I sucked at taking pictures. Sorry Charlies.

Wednesday was my usual off day, and it was also the first day that Cooper would be going to all day school while I was off. It felt so weird leading up to that day. It seemed so strange to be leaving him there when I could very well take care of him. But you guys know. He’s been balking at having to go to school. So, I knew the best course of action was to keep establishing an expected routine by taking him to school and leaving him there the entire day. So, I did which ended up being really nice for Sophie and I. We didn’t have to rush home to get chores finished before time for pick up at 11:45. What did we do? Well, obviously we went by Target – then we stopped by Aunt Grace’s house to visit with her and Uncle Dejan. Soso’s had this thing since…I don’t know…almost birth – that she’s been skittish around Dejan. We’ve been working on it and she actually seems to enjoy him now. Which is a big plus. No more crying and freaking out when she’s in the same room with him! 🙂 🙂

Wednesday night was Wine Wednesday on our Facebook Page. It was a lot of fun..as usual. I did have some nasty storms rolling through that night which was messing with the internet so we had to end things a little early. You should totally go watch the video if you missed it!

Friday night I had dinner with my sister, and then just went home for an early bedtime. OH! Friday morning Cooper DID NOT cry when I dropped him off at school! That was a fantastic start to our day. All the teachers were so happy to see him not upset…I talked about the whole thing on SnapChat that afternoon…soo make sure you’re following us there too! (RAtheMOMachine) We were just having such a great morning that day, and when I pulled into the school parking lot I got a pit in my stomach with dread that he may get upset. He didn’t though! It was just really a great feeling for both of us. He literally talked about it in almost every conversation I had with him for the rest of the weekend. Hopefully this trend continues!

Saturday and Sunday were pretty lazy days. I did spend a little time at my parent’s on Saturday after I sat in WalMart for FOUR hours waiting on an oil change. Four hours. Ridiculous. Cooper stayed the night with Grammy and Ppop so Sophie and I hit up Target that evening. It’s expected right? 😉 Sunday we picked up Cooper on the way home from a quick trip to Slidell to go to Toys R Us.

That evening they were both little wild heathens due to lack of naps; therefore, we started bath/bedtime about 30 minutes earlier than normal. I watched Game of Thrones and then called it a night.

Anddd that’s my week. What were you guys up to?

Week In Review: Ashley

Well well…look who’s late to the party? Anyway, I made it…with a few hours to spare! So, let’s see what we were up to last week….

Monday & Tuesday – Usualness allll around over here. Per usual. 😉 Work, school, pick up kids, play time, make dinner (that they don’t eat), break up fights, threaten them with time out, sneak in some kisses and sweet cuddles…then bath and bed time at 7:30.

Wednesday – We were up bright and early to take Coop to school. I told him that after school we’d have to come straight home for naps. However, after Sophie and I met up with Aunt Grace at Target, after school drop off, I decided that we’d surprise Coop and go straight to the Trampoline Park after I picked him up. Wednesday night was Wine Wednesday on our Facebook page. Rhonda and I went live to discuss life…and whatever else came to mind with a glass of wine in hand. It was a lot of fun…make sure you’re there next week to catch the fun!

Friday night there was some shopping…Marshall’s has some super cute home decor stuff out right now. I also stopped by Kohl’s. These two songs are my current obsessions: Jule Vera Bad Company and Imagine Dragons Believer

Saturday – There was actually not another trip to Target. That picture is from Wednesday….. 😉 There was wine and catching up on West World…and some face masks…and as always..meme searching.  I spent Saturday Day at my parents.

Sunday – I had tentative plans to take the kids to the beach BUT of course it rained. Again. Like almost every other day since the beginning of May. So we went back to Grammy and Ppop’s for some family time …and yummy food.  And of course Sunday night was Game of Thrones. 🙂

What were YOU guys up to this past week???
