A Low-Key November Weekend.

Happy Monday!  I hope you all had a fabulous weekend.  We definitely did, and I was sad to see it end.

Friday we continued our pre-DST routine of keeping Abbie up a cumulative extra 10 minutes, then I attempted to catch up on the DVR.
Saturday we headed to Weight Watchers (I was down 1.4 pounds) before heading to the grocery store, then home for Abbie’s nap.  After lunch, we spent the afternoon at the mall (rather than watch the disappointment of the VT football game…ugh).  We grabbed the Hallmark ornaments I wanted for this year and a few new cookbooks – a healthy family one, and Michael Symon’s new one.

P.S. How cute is this squirrel lamp I saw at JCPenney?  Loved it, but not its $85 price tag!

Sunday morning was the test of my DST plan of moving Abbie’s bedtime by 10 minutes each night the week before…and it worked!  Abbie slept until almost 7am.  We started the day with playtime…

Of course, a Target trip was in order, where I snatched up this adorable squirrel mug for only $6.99!  The other side says “I’m nuts about you!”

After Abbie’s nap, we ate lunch and headed to Ikea to pick up the last of Abbie’s birthday presents – her table and chair set.  (I’m going to paint the top with chalkboard paint, so that post will be coming!)  Of course, Chris wanted some swedish meatballs…so we had lunch number two.

Abbie was in the best mood all weekend – playing, giggling, and smiling all over the place.  I was sad to see the weekend end since we had so much fun.

Hope you’re all having a great Monday!

  1. I love that mug and lamp!! Too fun! I used to never shop much at JCP but lately I keep seeing more and more stuff I like there! 🙂 Glad you and your fam had a great weekend together!!

  2. I’m kind of obsessed with squirrels. I totally agree about JCP. I remember it being great when I was a kid, then kind of ignored it until now when I’m seeing so many more cool things!
