4 Things on a Thursday



1. Audio books.  Are you all listening to those?  I fell in love with listening to Serial in my car and now I might be ready to dabble in the audio book world.  Thoughts?  Suggestions?

2. Why Being a Mom is Enough.  My sweet mom sent this to me and I love it.

3. Tuesday I took the boys to the museum where we met our friends.  All was fun until the power went out and we had to leave early.  Paul cried that it was the best day until the lights went out and he had to leave Nolan and the museum.  Anyway, the museum is about 40 minutes from our house and I was REAL nervous that Charlie would fall asleep on the way home and ruin nap time for himself, but more importantly for me.  So I told Paul he could have a donut if he was able to keep Charlie awake. Worked like a charm.

4. My big confession is that I hate bath time.  I don't hate it while they are in the actual bath because I can just read a book or a magazine, but getting them dressed and then dried and dressed again seems like a lot of work.  However, Tuesday night Charlie ate a yogurt, got it everywhere (the biggest hot spot was his hair) and I had to break my maximum once a week bath time.  At least he was cute! 


It is almost the weekend... A long weekend!

A Wednesday Laugh

If it wasn't clear before, it is clear now.  I live in a boy house.  An ALL boy house.  And this is what we do for entertainment.   Brothers are just the best!

Tuesday Fashion!

Yesterday my friend Jenn gave me the genius idea of talking Golden Globe Fashion.  I love an awards show just for the dresses.  Obviously I love Tina and Amy too, but the dresses!  Anyway, here are my favorites, my not so favorites, and I can't decide! 

FAVORITES (IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER) 
#1 Sienna Miller.  I couldn't find a good picture of her on the red carpet, but I thought she looked so pretty when she was presenting! 

#2 Reese Witherspoon.  I'm just so much in love with her after Wild and thought she rocked her dress!  

#3 Amal Alamuddin.  I thought one of Tina and Amy's best jokes was about all of Amal's accomplishments and yet George Clooney was receiving the lifetime achievement award.  Hilarious.  And she is beautiful. 

#4 Jenna Dewan.  Not many people can pull off yellow, but Jenna can! 

#5- Emma Stone.  I just love Emma Stone.  I think she is cool and funny and I love that she wore pants and looked incredible! 

#6- Julianne Moore.  When I grow up I want to be Julianne.  She is beautiful and classy and I love her! 

#7- J-LO.  Lets face it.  Jennifer Lopez has a bangin body!  And she looked amazing Sunday night!  How do you get those legs?

Not Sure- I don't hate these but I am not in love with these: 
#1 Kate Hudson.  Now don't get me wrong.  I love me some Kate Hudson.  And her body is amazing.  I can't exactly figure out what it is about this dress, but I just can't give it my all! :)  

#2- Jennifer Aniston.  Again, I love sweet Jen, but it is a little "safe."  She looks gorgeous but I'm not 100% satisfied! 

Not my favorites- something about the following just missed the mark a bit! 

#1- Kerry Washington.  KERRY!!  What are you doing to me?  I love you in Scandal.  LOVE.  In fact if you wore something from your Scandal inspired line from the Limited it would be great.  

#2- Claire Danes.  Claire, you are prettier than this.  I don't hate the dress but I think it is too big.  Jenn also reported about the eye shadow issue, but I couldn't get a good picture.  

#3- Lena.  Oh Lena.  Although this is probably less offensive than some other things you have worn to an awards show, it looks like a lot of fabric.  A lot.  

What were your favorites??

Weekend Recap!

There is no reason for this except that I think it is hilarious!! 

We were really going to lay low this weekend but then ended up being quite busy #ofcourse  
This weekend was dedicated to the LADIES (my favorite) and it was so fun to connect with some fabulous women! 

Friday, my yoga friend Jill came over and we accidentally drank too much wine and had take out sushi and laughed quite a bit! 

Saturday morning I woke up to teach the swim team yoga again (last one- sad) and then came home to complain how tired I was.  I finally motivated to take a yoga class myself and then did a few errands.  Saturday night I had a dinner party with my girlfriends from work.  It is an annual tradition, and something I always look forward to.  Smart women with good food and lots of wine = perfection!  Paul asked what I was doing when I was leaving and I explained I was going to have dinner with my girlfriends.  He asked their names and when I listed everyone attending he paused and said, "That's a lot.  There is going to be a lot of talking."  True story Paul.  

Sunday Ryan found himself with a single ticket to the Bronco game.  We decorated the house with a Bronco flag and the life size Peyton.  Too bad the ending is not what we hoped for but I think he had a good time (he is currently sulking in the basement, but I am sure he had fun for at least a bit. Ha) 


Headed to work this morning, but this week we have finals Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and so only have half days.  Life isn't bad! 

Happy Monday to you!

Friday Favorites



Thank you Friday!  I am so excited you are here.  It is rough going back to work after 2 weeks off. And our students have finals next week, so there is a lot of missing assignment requests, total freak outs, and negotiations.  #winetime.  In all honesty, it is nice to get back into a routine but I am ready to sit on the couch and VEG this weekend.  And the poor boys are ready for that too.  Charlie has given me the death stare everyday this week that I have had to wake him up! :)

Anyway, here are some Friday favorites.

1. Blanket Scarfs.  Now I don't actually own one of these but they look pretty cool.  But
is it so much fabric it will strangle my face and choke me?  Please weigh in.


2. Nicole Kidman and Jimmy Fallon.  Ryan showed me this and we were dying with laughter!

3. I finished Serial and I love it so so so so much.  I cannot wait for Season 2.

4. I sent this to all my friends New Years Eve.  Because this is just the truth.  

Have a wonderful weekend!

Best Parts of Winter Break

I love breaks from work SO MUCH.  It is incredible to lay low.  To calm down.  To not be rushed out of the door and to let the kids sleep.  Seriously, Charlie has been so sad all this week because we have had to wake him up at 6:30 when he was sleeping in until 8:30.  I am sure Friday when I am off he will be up and ready to go at an unreasonable time. That is just how that works! 

In no particular order, here is my list of the best parts of Winter Break: 

1) Took a train ride with Santa.  We had no idea what to expect and next year I need to dress warmer, not take one car with 8 people (car sickness is real) and bring more snacks.  But Santa sat and chatted with us for a long time, gave the kids bells and they were excited.  We did this the day before Christmas Eve which only added to the excitement! 


2) Watched Home Alone.  I had this great idea in my head about how fun this movie would be but I forgot it is a little scary and the language isn't great (shut up, moron, jerk).  Oops.  But Charlie loved it! 

3) After brunch at my parent's house on Christmas morning, the kids took really long naps and then we were playing in the basement.  Charlie went upstairs and when I went to go look for him I found he had opened the garage door, pointing to Ryan's car chanting "G.  G.  G." (my dad).  I guess he wanted us to drive him right on over there.  

4) Our sweet friends had us over the day after Christmas and made us brunch and bloody marys and we had a great time recapping all our holidays!  I got cute Delilah this chef outfit for Christmas and she made us lots of snacks! 

5) I go a little crazy after Christmas when all this new stuff is in your house and the tree is taking up so much space and I just feel like the walls are closing in on me.  I took down Christmas fast and bought a new rug!  It brightens up the place and with a few new pillows on the couch I am feeling much better.  I have mental problems! 

6) We met our friends at the museum a snowy morning.  There was a cool lego exhibit and they loved playing in the kiddo area.  We had lunch and it was a great way to spend the morning and get out of the house! 


7) We went to go see Big Hero 6.  We brought 2 cars just in case Charlie couldn't handle sitting still for 2 hours.  However, we learned if we give Charlie a box of junior mints, he can do just about anything!  When we left I noticed he had streaks of chocolate down his neck and in his ear.  But he had a good time!  

8) I caught up reading ALL my magazines! I had a huge stack.  And I made myself sit on the couch and read through each one.  It was amazing. 

9) I listened to the podcast Serial.  I know I am late to this party but it is amazing!  I just finished it today.  LOVE.  If you haven't jumped on this train you need to.  TODAY.

10) Saw 2 movies- Horrible Bosses and Wild.  Way different but both entertaining! 

11) Sleeping in!  Everyone slept in!  In fact I think I woke up before everyone everyday.  It was amazing to have some quiet time in the morning and amazing to let the sweet boys wake up when they wanted! 

11) Our fun friends The Kearneys were in town and came over for lunch one day.  They have 3 boys.  And brought their nephew.  So there were 6 boys.  SIX.  It was loud and crazy and I loved it.  It was funny that the adults just continued to talk over the constant noise.  I think we are all used to it!
 

12) But my favorite part of break was just laying on the couch with my boys and watching them play.  It was amazing to hang out and have nothing pressing on the calendar! 





Oh Winter Break, I already miss you!!
