Hey hey! How was your weekend? Travis had to work more than usual this weekend, but last night marked the beginning of his spring break! Wahoo! We have a list of fun things we want to do as a family (and I have some things to do solo on my wish list) and we’re looking forward to what is hopefully a fun week ahead!
Last week, one of my best friends from college was in San Diego for a conference. We were able to meet up for dinner while she was here and since Travis was working, I took Cecilia with me and she was able to meet her. Actually, she met Cecilia when she was about six weeks old, but this was her first time seeing her as a “big girl.” My friend lives in Texas, so we don’t get to see each other that often, but it’s so nice when we do because we’re able to pick up right where we left off.
I did another wine and paint with my Stroller Strides friends last week and, again, I’m so pleasantly surprised by how my painting came out. While I may be super crafty and creative, I honestly don’t have any drawing ability whatsoever, so the fact that I had a final product I wouldn’t mind hanging up in my house is amazing.
I decided to make a spring project list for our house. I really made sure that I kept the list to things I could actually accomplish in the time before summer comes around, so it wasn’t overwhelming and I didn’t feel like a failure if there were a bunch of things I didn’t get around to doing.
Do you have any Easter plans? What fun family things are you planning?
I know I mentioned this last week, but Cecilia continues to sing every single song that she hears and I absolutely love it. It doesn’t matter if she knows the words or if she’s even heard the song before, she owns it and sings LOUDLY. It’s adorable and I’ve tried to get a few videos of it, but once she suspects what I’m doing, she completely stops.
I tried overnight oats for the first time last week and I’m a fan! I tried a recipe I found online, but want to adjust a few things, then I’ll be sure to share it!
I still haven’t watched the This is Us finale. I swear I’ve been meaning to do it, but I just can’t yet. I don’t know if I just don’t want to get all emotional or if I don’t want to say goodbye to the show until the fall. Maybe this week will be the week.
