Happy Friday! It’s February and love is in the air. Let’s get to what I’m loving this week.

The kids had themed dress-up days at school this week for spirit week. We all loved it! I was always totally into spirit days growing up, but I have to say it’s just as fun dressing the kids up. This week they had team spirit day, tacky tourist day, Marvel vs. DC day, career day, and pajama day. In all of my years of spirit days, I had never done tacky tourist day and it was my favorite day this week. Greg made them both a sweet camera which they both carried with them all day. I posted the rest of their outfits on Instagram, so you can check them out.

Sunday was the Superbowl and while I have no interest in talking about the actual game, I will talk about the halftime show. Lady Gaga was on point. If you haven’t seen her performance, you can watch it all here. I am also stoked that she announced her tour dates the following day AND is performing along side Metallica on Sunday at the Grammy’s. That’s a match made in heaven if you ask me (and Greg).
t h r e e
Greg has really gotten into the show Hunted, therefore, I have also gotten into it. It’s really interesting and I find myself learning something new each episode.
f o u r
Podcast update: the kids have been loving this Disney Story Central podcast I found from Denaye at Simple Families. The episodes are short so they are perfect for the ride to school in the morning. I am really into podcasts right now, so share your favorites with me! I recently cancelled my Sirius/XM subscription in my car because between podcasts and Spotify, I didn’t feel like I was listening to it enough to justify the price.
Don’t forget to pop over to see what Misha is loving this week and share with you’re loving too!
easy, breezy friday morning run with the girls.
saturday morning play time.
we celebrated kyler’s fifth birthday with bowling and pizza!
the kids had a great time bowling!
heather and nathan invited us to the chef’s gala at epcot on saturday night. we had such a great time getting dressed up and getting out of the house. i wore the kendra jumpsuit by diane von furstenberg compliments of rent the runway. based on the name alone, i couldn’t pass it up. i loved it and it fit so well.
enjoying all the food and all the drinks.
my favorite dish of the night.
chef mickey made an appearance!
kenley helped greg make appetizers for the super bowl while i did some meal prep for the week. it was very serious business.
play time at the park. crosby loving on baby lincoln. he’s obsessed!
we had a great weekend but it went by way too fast, how was yours?
Happy Friday! It’s hard to believe it’s already the last Friday of January. I’ve got a lot to love this week, so let’s get started.
o n e
Kenley has continued rock star status this week on her two wheeler! After bath and pjs this week, they insisted on a ride around the block.
t w o
Our new recipe for the week was buffalo chicken spaghetti squash and it was a huge hit! It was our first time cooking or eating spaghetti squash and we were really impressed. I modified the recipe a little bit and cooked the buffalo chicken in the crock-pot during the day. We also cooked the spaghetti squash in the Instant Pot, which was super quick. I made way too much, so I used the leftovers with pizza chicken later in the week. It’s amazing to see the squash string right out like spaghetti.
t h r e e
We are so excited that good TV is back! Suits started back up this week and we are loving Timeless. We still have to catch up on This is Us this weekend. Too much TV, not enough time!
f o u r
The kids celebrated their 100th day of school on Wednesday by dressing up like they were 100 years old. They loved it and thought it was hilarious to pretend to be an “old lady” and an “old man”.
Don’t forget to see what Misha is loving this week!
friday date night.
10 miles on saturday with the girls. we headed to the cross seminole trail for a change of pace. it was a great run.
we had these crazy kiddos over for dinner on saturday night. they had such a great time.
sunday park time!
after a hard workout at the y and a trip to aldi, i spent a couple hours in the kitchen doing some serious meal prep. i knocked out some breakfasts, lunches, and dinners for the week.
this is where greg spent most of the weekend, with a special appearance of one of our rental cars (that’s a story for another day). we took on a big project and it looks great! i’ll be sharing soon!
just in case you needed a smile going into the week.
we had a great long weekend. we did some work around the house, watched football, and saw some friends.
how was your weekend?
before my parents left on saturday, greg and i headed out for a date night on friday night. we enjoyed our wine tasting and dinner at cooper’s hawk, then a beer at brass tap.
as soon as we were up on saturday morning, the christmas decorations started coming down. we took a short break to celebrate jackson’s 5th birthday at the park, complete the light sabers!
the weather was nice and cool and the kids had a great time. once kenley showed crosby how to put his leg over the top of the tower, he continued to climb over and over again. it’s so fun watching him learn new things.
after ringing in the new year, we headed to the science center on sunday morning to check out the new kidstown, as well as toytopia before it ends. the new kidstown is amazing!
greg and the kids had already been to toytopia, but i really enjoyed learning about the history of so many toys.
just a little water table action on new years day.
today was full of grocery shopping and meal prepping! so excited to start the year off on the right foot.
balance bike ride around the block. no one was smiling by the time we got home. who’s ready to go back to school tomorrow?!
we had a great weekend, but we’re all anxious to get back into the swing of things now that all of our visitors have gone home.
happy new year!
