Monday…already?? The weekend flew by–but the good ones usually do!
I’ve got a whole bunch of randomness to share today, starting with our weekend in the Little Apple.
It was a cold Saturday in Manhattan, but we bundled up and ventured out to the game. I was happy to have Nash (aka Randy) to keep me warm…but toting that little butterball around is a serious workout!
The kids and I headed out at halftime because a. it was freezing, b. it was nap time, and c. things weren’t looking good for the wildcats. But lucky for us, we got to see this sweet face before we left! I just adore Desiree and I’m so glad her Iowa and Kansas roots bring her back this way from time to time!
And can we just talk about Nash in that picture? Clearly he was over that game 😉
Little did he know that the cats would miraculously come back to win it and score 10 points in the last 80 seconds of the game. Totally crazy but we’ll take it!
The rest of the day consisted of shenanigans back at Grandma and Grandpa’s condo. I’m so thankful for their new place because it allows us to make these fun memories with the whole family…in one of our favorite places ever.
Later that night Chris and I headed out for an anniversary dinner and drinks with some very good friends that were in town from Houston. We laughed a lot and just had the best time. However, things got weird when we realized that we’d given each other the same anniversary card 😉
The inside says “you’re welcome”…so I guess who’s responsible is still up for debate 😉
Our Sunday consisted of driving home to KC, going to a fun little 2nd birthday party, and hanging our Christmas lights. Some guys in our neighborhood went in together and rented a man lift to get the job done. I think it was really just a ploy to hang out together and drink beer–but it got the job done quickly (and well!) and the kids loved watching out the window as Chris floated by with lights in hand.
When I was laying Nash down later that evening I heard Christmas music playing outside. I snuck out of his room and ran down to see a bunch of our neighborhood friends caroling in our driveway! We weren’t able to make the rounds with them, but they stopped by to see our “house lighting” anyway. This is a pretty good place that we live 🙂
Now…on to the other fun things!
First, a big congratulations to Dawn Schmidt! Dawn is the random winner of the Pink Antlers Studio holiday banner. I hope it helps to make your holiday season a little merrier and brighter 🙂 Thanks Morgan for making it all possible!
Last but not least, I’m so so honored to be featured by Shiny Happy Human in their #BeautifullyMessyMom campaign, launching today.

The lift to hand the lights is cracking me up! Love it. Genius on the guys part.
It was great seeing you this weekend – albeit a quick little hello! Fingers crossed we can meet up for a little (warmer) play date with the kids!
