Scenes From Our Weekend

Feb 6, 2018

Happy Tuesday!  Sorry for the lack of a post yesterday, it was a crazy day!

I hope everyone enjoyed the Super Bowl, I especially enjoyed the Justin Timberlake half time show.  He never disappoints. My parents had us over for a little Super Bowl party.  The kids loved it.

Here is a better look at my blouse.  It also comes in a black/white combo.  It does run on the large side so size down.

Frances Moon chowing down on a cupcake,  in her happy place.

My parents cooked wings and buffalo chicken dip and I made my favorite wedge salad.  Recipe HERE

New Pajamas I am loving.  I kind of love a skull print and these are crazy soft.  I am wearing a small in the top and medium in the pants.

These are the Peter Thomas Roth eye patches I mentioned last week.  I am hooked.   I can feel the skin tightening around my eyes while I wear them.  They work wonders on your under eye area.

Taco Night Friday Night.

Frances Moon striking a pose like a mannequin.  I could not stop laughing.

Sterling likes to leave me notes reminding me of punishments I promised Frances Moon:)

Favorite ballet flats are now 50% off.

Happy Hour with my parents.

I love my parent’s dog Moonie, she is such a sweetie.  I loved reading everyone’s comments on my instagram about whether or not to get a dog.  It was right down the middle.  I will probably wait til the kids are a little older.

    Have you ever used Peter Thomas Roth toner? If so, what do you think? There are a few that look interesting that I kind of want to try…

    I laugh so hard when I think about Sterling leaving you that note about Frances Moon’s punishment. Hilarious. And he signs it, “Love Sterling.” I die!

    Natalie…Get a dog!……but a golden retriever….not poodle…….it will give the children a sense of responsibility…….clean and exchange the water three times a day…….take for a walk 4-6/7 times for a puppy……walks and outings……a different love…for you too. And I think you need it, have earned it, and would love it. Be sure to give it its own bed….no sleeping with humans!…….or, big fights will ensue. Buy a tick tick clock…….wrap well, to put in puppy’s bed to simulate mother’s heartbeat.

    Rethink…..it would be lovely for you all….for the three of you only…..smile!….you’ve earned it. Warmly, jay

      I kindly disagree…a toy poodle is the way to go…no shedding…great cuddler…sleeps well with humans…still provides sense of responsibility for the kids 🙂
