TGIF, friends! Between the three-day monsoon we have welcomed in VB & the dreary mood it has put on all of my students this week, this one couldn’t have come fast enough!
ONE – I really do hate rain. It always ruins a perfectly good hair day & our daily walks to the park. But I do always try to find a little “sunshine” in everything, so in the event of rain, here is ours.
Hunter Rain Boots … for me & my mini, of course. I usually have a personal shopping rule against spending that much money on one pair of shoes, but since they really don’t go out of style & I really can be rocking them for years to come, I made an exception this time. And the rationale behind Waverly Maye’s pair? I’ve got nothing. Except that she looks pretty damn cute in them.
TWO – Pumpkin Play-dough. Yea, I have jumped on this festive fall bandwagon. I am all about a craft, DIY project, & especially anything holiday-related, but have quickly learned that at 14 months, we are just not there yet. We are lucky if Waverly Maye’s 15-second attention span can sustain a board book. So I was a little nervous to buy the ingredients & take the time to make my own play-dough … but am happy to report that it was worth the while!
Waverly Maye really did love it … for a total of ten minutes. And then I stored it in an air-tight container and we have played with it everyday since. A holiday win in my book. 🙂
THREE – Crayons & Coloring Books. That super busy, on-the-go toddler I was just referring to? I am happy to report that this week, I managed to get her to sit still long enough to draw our very first picture together.
Waverly Maye actually sat in my lap to create this work of art & it was such a fun, special time. I can’t wait for many more drawings together! I really love coloring all on my own & am thankful to have a child now so that it is more socially acceptable. And that much more fun, of course.
FOUR – Caramel Apple Cookie Mix. You know, the kind you buy in the box from Target. I really do love to bake, as long as the recipe can be read from the back of the box. 🙂 These really are delicious, made the house smell like fall, & yes, I felt pretty damn domestic making them! One day I will try the real thing but in the meantime, Waverly Maye & my hubby don’t seem to mind.
FIVE – The Zack Brown Band. Without a doubt, the band that my husband & I love the most. We have seen them in concert twice & this Saturday will be our third! A date night out listening to good, relaxing music?! Please & thank you. 🙂
We hope that everyone had a fabulous week (and aren’t as drenched as we are!).
HAPPY Weekend, XOXO.
Thanks, as always, to Natasha and the ladies for this weekly link-up!
