Well today was a very nice day I dropped my kids off to school and went to my Pure Empower class it was my 99th class so Monday will be my 100th class.

Then I met my bestie for coffee and we had a great day catching up We’re able to hang out until nearly 2pm had a great lunch and it was a wonderful day.

I put dinner in the crockpot and headed to pick up my son from school and cams home to get some cleaning done before picking up my daughter.

One set of our matching shirts came in and I can’t wait to wear them with her. If my husband is not too tired tonight and Savannah is good I’d like to take her to see Santa and get pictures tonight.

Tomorrow we head out of town for our family Pictures excited to get that done. Glad my hubby will be home soon we miss him.

My daughters scholastic books arrived today so happy to have new books to read with her. This will be. Very busy weekend for us.

Dinner was a hit will definitely make that for my family again in the near future. It was a crock pot recipe for chicken fajitas and it was fantastic and so easy.

Fun night with the kids and hubby tonight just the simple pleasures. I am excited for our family photo session tomorrow. We need to leave by 8:30am so it looks like it will be a Starbucks breakfast kinda day.

Need to get some sleep hope everyone had a great weekπŸπŸŒ»πŸ‘πŸ˜ŠπŸŽ„πŸ˜˜

This has been a very busy week. But I’ve enjoyed it I’ve worked out at Pure Barre Monday Tuesday and Wednesday today I had too many errands.

I made two delicious crockpot meals which the kids and I enjoyed and chicken fried rice on Monday night. My weight has been steady at 133 pounds which means I’m getting close to my goal weight.

I got table set with Christmas linens. And our house is looking very festive. Wish the outside lights didn’t make my sons electrical in his room go out haven’t turned them on all week.

Taking him to orthodontist again which means many more taxi service trips for Mom and he’s volunteering tonight so a drop off and pick up for that too.

Received our first Christmas card from my friend Julie which was nice and got to have lunch with my friend Chelsea yesterday. Tomorrow I’m going to meet her and my bestie Sara for coffee then spend some of the day with Sara.

I still need to get our Christmas cards done and sent out. We have family portraits done this Saturday. I still want to get Savannah’s Santa portrait done too.

I got a manicure and pedicure earlier this week pretty red for the holidays. I’ve been getting good sleep every night although I miss my husband a lot.

Brought the book for exchange at my daughters school today. Hoping her scholastic order comes in soon.

I have all her Christmas shopping completed. Some items for my husband ordered. But have nothing for our son yet want to get all that shopping finished by next week.

We still need area rugs badly for our house which is wall to wall tile. Hoping our dining Chandelier arrives soon as well. Our patio lounge is supposed to be put together for us Sunday I am looking forward to that.

I still need to get Savannah’s dollhouse put together. Excited that we now have a bathroom towel shelf tower and that my washer add in door now opens guess it was on child lock.

I will hit my 100 class tomorrow or Monday. Proud of my sons grades and hope he continues to keep up the good work. Bummed that my three step daughters are being cold to their Dad my husband is so good about reaching out and showing love.

I pray everyday that they will open their hearts to him it’s sad to see any parent have to miss time with their kids it’s just not fair that he’s been cut out of so many years of their life. We love them and keep them in our prayers and hearts and only wish the best for them.

I really want to get a treadmill or spin bike this Christmas to workout at home with. Glad my husband Jeff is coming home tomorrow we miss him a lot.

I did manage to get a coffee this morning and my car washed before picking my son up. No just at orthodontist waiting on his appointment to end.

I want and need to get a facial soon my skin is needing it. Bummed found out my cousin and her man and kiddos cannot make it Christmas Day.

Our friend Barb cannot make it our with us Sunday night so we should make other plans for us that night. I need to get our family photo albums done way behind and my daughters first years book I need to add to.

I wish my husband and I could get away just us for a vacation Sandals was one of the best trips we’ve ever had. That would be awesome to do that again.

I like my oil diffuser it’s great think I want to get a few more for house. I want to get more Alexa for the house and sync them up so we can have music and information in all rooms.

Proud of my nephew he’s getting himself on track and working towards getting his own place without roommates. So proud of him love him so much.

Wishing my hair was much longer but it’s starting to grow again. And my daughters hair is getting longer too. I need to get some oils for my diffuser and get underwear.

We’ve been at our new home since July so we’re overdue for having a house warming party as well as sending our family and friends an updated address.

I am going to take my son for lunch before we head back to school. Then I need to get as much done as possible before 2:30pm when I head back to his school to pick him up.

I have definitely started noticing wrinkles for the first time ever mainly my forehead. I still need to get me and my daughter dentist appointments made soon.

I also need to make an appointment with a general practitioner for myself soon. I want to get my house and my life much more organized.

hoping everyone is enjoying their week πŸŽ„πŸ‘πŸ™πŸ˜ŠπŸŒ»πŸ

It’s the most wonderful time of the year πŸŽ„home

Our weekend was nice cozy nights at home 🏑 lots of baking and Christmas movies. My little one keeps trying to stay up past her bedtime.

I got her down at 8:35 tonight at least and I am exhausted no energy to take a bath just watching a little tv then gonna crash out.

I am looking forward to my Pure Barre this week. This is going to be a busy hectic week and exercise will help me through it.

It’s amazing how this joy filled festive beautiful season with yummy treats to eat and drink brings just as much stress as it does joy. For some people who have lost loved ones it’s a less than joyful time no matter how long it’s been.

I am grateful for my amazing children and husband and all my wonderful family and friends. I love watching my daughter truly enjoy everything now that she is older and I look forward to every moment of memory making.

I am blessed to have my son as my sidekick and helper I may not have all the firsts with him like when he was younger but he’s an amazing brother and son and makes all my holidays and everyday brighter and happier.

I have to get all his Christmas shopping done I do have Savannah all done will save the stocking for Christmas Eve. I need to get the family members gifts as well.

I will enjoy as many festivities as possible this month I will enjoy watching my kids laugh and smile and even make messes.

I miss my husband right now but he’s busy working and won’t be home until Friday. I hope patio lounge chair gets put together.

I hooked up my oil diffuser I need to get some oils for it this week.I want to make sure this is a magical fun week for the kids and I.

Well enjoy the magic this holiday season spread love kindness and joy πŸŽ„πŸ‘πŸŽπŸŒ»πŸ˜˜πŸπŸ˜‡

I’ve only been to Pure Barre once this week. I did get our tree decorated still need star put up and outside decor. I got outdoor doormats I am minus inside doormat I also still need twelve new Christmas place mats and napkin rings.

Table cloth as well if we get red mats need new table cloth that’s not red. I need groceries. My son got his report card today and took him to orthodontist have to take him again on Monday.

I need to take my kids to see Santa tonight and I need to finish holiday decor and get all Halloween and Thanksgiving decor put away. I’m so frustrated with the timing of these orthodontist appointments.

My car is now repaired πŸ‘Œ just overloaded with stuff and wishing my pain would subside. Still have all our sons Christmas shopping to do as well as family shopping and they did not have the last item I need for Savannah at target.

Waiting for our pictures to be sent to me from photo shoot Savannah and I did on Veterans Day. I need to set Charlys grooming appointment.
