It's Friday! And, the start of a three-day weekend! Well, for me anyway. My hubby has to work so I'm planning to take the girls out to do something fun on Monday morning with the hopes they will take long, long, long afternoon naps. #fingerscrossed

I also have big plans to finish painting the guest bathroom and venture into the hallway for Operation White Trim & Doors.

But first...


...nursing my wine hangover from last night. Scandal is back, ya'll! Olivia and I are basically twins. What, with my $7 bottle of screw-top wine and all. Also, Team Jake. Forever and always!



The girls have started full-on fighting with each other. It's super fun. Gracyn tries to boxout the little one. The "little one" will bulldoze her way through everything and I swear it's only to annoy her big sister.

Things were coming to a head yesterday morning. We're usually pretty content to spend our days at home aside from the occasional errand while I attempt to get some work done but we HAD to get out of the house yesterday. We hit up Rainbow Play Systems to play on their indoor swing sets. It was a hit! The girls had so much fun running around. And you can't beat the $5 pay-to-play on a cold day when the regular park might not be the best option.


We don't have any major Valentine's Day plans but we do usually get the girls something small to go with their cards. Gracyn is going to flip out when she sees this pillow buddy. The thing is h u g e. Like 27 inches. She's going to love it. Leighton is getting this cute flamingo and each will also be getting a new Valentine's Day themed book (this one and this one).


I am totally lame when it comes to Snapchat, to the point where I had to just go and look up my user name because I didn't know what it was, but Gracyn LOVES IT. She is obsessed with the different filters you can use on selfie mode. It's obnoxious but hilarious. We add 3472 pictures to my "story" at a time and they're all of her making silly faces with the filters. We're easily amused over here...


Justin worked late last night so I was in charge of coming up with something to eat for dinner. The kids had hotdogs (mom win!) and I had cereal. I could eat cereal for every meal but it was no surprise that I was scrounging around for a snack come 7:30 pm. I had already started drinking wine but that didn't stop me from making an old favorite. I don't even know what they're called - Cinnamon Sugar Tortilla Rolls??? - but I remember making them as a kid. Super easy, too.

Grab a tortilla (I used whole wheat so it wasn't a complete and utter detriment to my health...) and spread a little bit of butter on it, much like you were buttering a slice of bread. Sprinkle a little sugar on top followed by a little bit of cinnamon. Throw it in the microwave for 10-15 seconds (enough to melt that butta'), roll it up and enjoy!

But note, red wine isn't the best option to drink with them. Milk would probably be better... ;)

Enjoy your (hopefully long!) weekend, friends!


  1. I love those pay-to-play places. Toddles' favorite is the one with the bouncy castles...they are lifesavers. I can just let her run around and get energy out without really having to worry. We often stop on long car rides to play in one if we see one.

  2. Yes, I'm a gladiator too! I'm so excited that all Shonda's shows are back! Up until the very end of the episode I was really disappointed. I was expecting more drama and action but boy was the ending unexpected!

  3. Jake for the win!!! I have two girls who are always on top of each other too!! And yay for wine snacks!!
