Ahhhh, Friday at last. Friday nights are one of our favorite nights. For the past few Fridays I have skipped making dinner and just made us (the Honey and me) a platter. Typically it's an assortment of cold cuts, cheeses, french bread, fruit, I garnish it with dark chocolate...it's superb and makes us feel fancy. We wait until the kids go to bed to crack open a bottle of wine and feast on our platter. It's almost like our living room is transformed into a posh wine loft where we have the freedom of bare feet. Yes, I heart fancy Fridays.
This week was a good week. Fully immersing back into our school routine and preparing to celebrate the little sister this weekend we stayed just busy enough. However, our walks to and from school we take our time. This kindergarden walk has become one of my favorite times with the kids. We have to leave early enough so that Trent has time to collect every stick along the way or so that we have time to capture pictures like this.
Coming home we move a bit slower and on Fridays the school sells popcorn for twenty-five cents. We'll take two please :-) .
I love raising my kiddos in Southern California because even in January shoes are typically optional and my little boy prefers to go without...and I let him.
Little Sister is happy to tag along in the stroller and will beam at any child that runs up to talk to her. Love our sweet Sammy.
I've been working hard to make sure that we ring in her first year of life in delicious style, can't believe we've had her for a year already. Time just keeps slipping by. Here's a sneak peak of the festivities ahead...
I promised a few confessions, so here goes...
1. I spent WAY too much money this week, all in the name of Samantha's party of course.
2. I was mildly bitter that Drake visited a winery on his work trip (prior neither one of us had been to one and I was hoping we would go together for our first time). He did bring me a souvenir as a peace offering.
3. I miss my Sarah. She's been vacationing in Cancun all week. I didn't realize how much I text her ridiculous things until she wasn't here to bug with my nonsense. She'll be home tomorrow, sigh.
This weekend we will celebrate our sweet baby girl and we will watch Juliana and Trent's excitement over their little sister (as well as their enthusiasm over all the candy that was purchased). I'm excited and I can't wait to share it with you. Have a great weekend!
