As a stay at home mom, my days are all pretty much the same. My work doesn't start and end in the typical 9-5, Monday-Friday job hours. Oh no, this momma's working 24/7, 7 days a week, 365 days a year lol! (because at the very least, I'm making milk for my sweet little Isabelle)

The point is, Fridays usually aren't that exciting to me. You'll find me doing the same things on Saturdays and Sundays as I'd do on Mondays or Thursdays, so any day is about the same as any other.

Today, though, I was ready to welcome Friday with open arms :)

My week has been so busy. (And I'm starting to become more aware that when I feel too busy and overwhelmed, I'm not a nice person. Everything - especially the negative things - become much bigger than they really are and I become overwhelmed with annoyance. It's not a nice thing.)

As the second grade room mom at Kaylee's school, it was my job to plan, coordinate, and put on a luncheon for the 45 teachers and staff at her school this week. My week was filled with working within a tight budget, a combination of purchasing, ordering and making all the food, transporting said food to school, getting the lunch all set up....and all with a baby in tow, of course.
The good news is, the luncheon went well, and everyone seemed to enjoy it.

Then today, Kaylee's class was having a Kansas day luncheon, and I volunteered to make chili for the second graders. After being in charge of an entire meal for 45 adults, making chili for 23 kids was a breeze!

As part of their Kansas day celebration, the kids got to wear jeans and a "western" shirt. (They usually wear uniforms.) This is about as western as we get in this house:
This is Kaylee's FAVORITE shirt, by the way. She has the exact same shirt in pink in purple, and those two are the only shirts (besides uniforms and PJs) I've seen her wear in the last few months. The girl has a drawer FULL of long sleeve shirts and a closet full of sweatshirts, hoodies, and jackets, but NOOOO. Only the plaid flannel shirt will do. So glad we bought all the others. Sigh.

Meanwhile, Isabelle made a big discovery today!

And not only that, she can EAT them!

I know some babies may discover the joys of another set of attached play things (ie- toes) sooner than 5 months, but with Isabelle's big tummy in the way, her toes have mostly been out of her reach. 
It's really funny though, because for about 3 out of every 5 times she tries to pull her toes to her mouth, she's met with too much resistance (ie- that big tummy) and her hands wind up at her mouth empty handed. lol!


  1. Aw-I always think babies trying to eat their toes is adorable. Too sweet.

  2. ahhh the wonderful skill of being able to stuff your toes in your mouth... I miss that kind of flexibility! haha!

    at least plaid shirts are in style right now? haha! It could be way worse - I promise! <3

    Do you have a whole foods near you? I had to drive almost 3 hours to visit my nearest one and they were the only place i've ever seen kabocha at. crazy right?

    Happy Friday!

  3. Wow! You really have been busy! Crazy! That's too funny about your daughter & her favorite shirt. I find that I tend to do the same thing with my "non-work" clothes, too! I have hundred shirts, but I always rotate through the same 3 shirts, lol : )

  4. I love what you've done to your blog (the header and new background) How do you do that??

    Your kids are so cute :)

  5. that's so cute! Landon still hasn't found his toes yet - prob b/c of his big belly too! Good job on all the mass quantities of food!

  6. Those pics are way too cute!!!!! Love the toes in mouth:)
