Festive Weekend

Hi friends!

How was your weekend?


Festive Weekend


I dressed baby Lily in baby Gap. Awwwww.

Taught a sweaty Zumba class.

Hung out with my mother-in-law at her house working on a project. More to come later!

Ate green smoothies with Jared.

Put Lily to bed at 7:15 p.m. (!!!)

Watched an episode of Biggest Loser (while J did homework).

Went to bed at 8:30 p.m. (!!) –really cool, except I couldn’t fall asleep until like 11. #fail

Andddddd Lily woke up at 12 to eat.


And then after going back to bed at 1 (yes, she ate a ton!), miss Lily did not want to sleep past 3 a.m. ….. so it was a lonnnnnggg night/morning.


Long night/early morning, so verrrrry slow late morning.

So I dressed her as cute as possible, and it ended up making me less grouchy.

Cutest little ducky ever, ehhh?

Laundry, cleaning, eating ensued.

Then errands galore. With greasy hair.

So I covered that schtuffff up!

Once home (hello errands take forever during the holidays on a Saturday!! yikes!), we all ended up taking an epic nap of all 3 of us falling asleep on our bed.

I snapped that photo of her before I ended up falling asleep.

I soooooo needed it!

We hastily ate a dinner by Christmas light.

Because we had a festive place to head to!

A wonderful Christmas party with friends :)

{anyone catch anything really funny about this photo??? hehehehe}

I loaded up on the good stuff (veggies, chocolate, festive drink.)

festive weekend

Notice how my chocolate rolled into my veggie sauce…..so  yah, I had to go grab a few more handfuls of that cadbury goodness. Duh.

We played games, gabbed, and had a good ole’ time. Love those people!


Baby Lily actually slept pretty well, so we got up & were mostly rested and headed to church for a lovely Christmas program.

I love this time of year!

festive weekend

So funny story–that dress is a newborn size….and wouldn’t close in the back (so it was unbuttoned the whole time), and it’s way too short on her, but I HAD to dress her in it because a) it is cute and b) I couldn’t fold it & put it away until she had worn it and I had taken a bazillion pics of her in it.

See how long she is getting?!?!? Ahhhhh.

Snuggles and naps.

festive weekend

Food. (and drink. I had to snag and extra to enjoy on Sunday–it is really tasty!!)

festive weekend

We also wrapped presents, listened to Christmas music, read great talks about Christ, and just chilled.

And yesterday, when she turned a ripe old age of 7 weeks old, baby Lily rolled over from stomach to back!!

festive weekend festive weekend

She was so surprised (so was I!) that she totally cried.

So I made her do it 3 more times.

I am so nice.

But I needed it on video, duh!

That evening we spent with Jared’s family at his parents’ house. Fun times!


Well, happy Monday to all of us!

I am off to teach BP/CX –the 1 hour combo for the last time of 2013! And then later I get to see Ashley & Hunter. Yipppeeee! :)

Have a WONDERFUL day. <3

  9. A family nap sounds wonderful! Every time that I say I’m going to nap during Aiden’s naptime, it fails somehow. I don’t know why, but it just does. It’s like he knows and will only sleep for 30 minutes during that nap. Ahh oh well. He must like the constant bags under my eyes haha.

    • those little buggers alllllwwaayyyysss know 😉

      and I think the bags under the eyes is coming back into fashion….at least I like to tell myself that….hehe

  10. I feel like I have so much to say about this post! 1) Once again, I LOVE your knit headband! Obviously I need one pronto! 2) Baby Lily is the cutest thing! I saw her ducky outfit on IG, and I about died. Just adorable. 3) Hilarious about the dress on her. That’s totally something I would’ve done too! 4) We went to a Christmas party Friday night, and then drove around to look at Christmas lights on Saturday night. So fun! I love this time of year too. :) 5) Can’t wait to see you and Lily today!!!!!!!

  15. You would never know that Lily’s dress is too small! She looks as sweet as ever. I love her faces, she makes the best “what are you doing?” face I’ve ever seen on a little one (the one where you’re holding her above!). Christmas parties are quickly becoming my favorite part of the holiday season. I love getting together with everyone.

  19. The ducky outfit is my all time favorite! So precious! & I can’t believe she is rolling over – such a little rockstar!

    We will be with family next week & I’m hoping to squeeze in a few naps with Atlas! It’s hard for me to nap at home – I feel like there is so much I have to do because I accomplish nothing while he’s awake.
