Happy weekend all!
Anything fun planned? We are home, relaxing this morning which is nice. Maybe some gym time with the hubby today, park with the family, and a few errands planned. Tomorrow I’m taking a photography class in the morning which I’m somewhat looking forward to. It will be nice to learn about the functions on my camera (that I’ve had for a year now), but it’s from 8:00 to 1:00 which takes up my whole morning. Oh well!
The Love Nugget is still fighting a little cough but seems to be feeling just fine! Despite the cough, I took him to his first gymnastics class yesterday. We were supposed to start the week before but we went to the doctor instead. He had a great time but was not a fan of following the rules. He didn’t want to sit in the circle, didn’t want to do the parachute, and didn’t want to sing the song. I think it’s good I enrolled him because he needs to learn how to follow the rules and listen to others.
After gymnastics we made a quick stop at Hobby Lobby for a few crafting supplies. While there, I decided I was in a crafting mood and grabbed some stuff to make a few Valentines decorations.
The wreath was super easy to make. I wrapped burlap (a thick burlap ribbon) around a basic wreath. They didn’t have foam ones so I had to get a straw one which was a mess! I purchased the flowers as they were, made a bow out of cute ribbon, then took two wooden hearts and glued some cute scrapbook paper to them. Voila! Super simple, cute and cheap!
The banner was even easier with my Circuit. Cut out burlap triangles then used my circuit to cut out the letters. Strung it up using black ribbon and called it good! I’m going to hang it over our mantle with a few other Vday touches that I’m working on. Photo to come soon!
While I was crafting away, the Love Nugget was refusing to nap. Not sure what his deal was since he was exhausted and usually likes to nap. However, he played happily in his crib for a awhile then in his room while I worked upstairs.
It was such a nice afternoon yesterday. It’s been freezing in the mornings but warming up to 60′s in the afternoon. The hubby came home early so we could go check out a park close by our house. By the time we got there the sun was starting to set so it was getting a little cold but it was gorgeous!
The Love Nugget was amazed at all the geese and ducks and the White Coyote ran around like he owned the place.
We’ll definitely be going back, hopefully today for a picnic
We got home around 5:30 and immediately fed the Love Nugget his dinner. Well, his no napping caught up to him because before we knew it, he had passed out in his chair. So early to bed for him!
The hubby and I enjoyed a glass or wine (or two) while making dinner, and chatting. I didn’t snap a picture but it was really good! Baked salmon with a dill balsamic dressing I received from my foodie pen pal, along with some sautéed kale and mushrooms. Yum! After dinner we watched a movie we had recorded a few weeks ago. It was called Just Go With It and wasn’t expecting to like it since I’m not a huge fan of Adam Sandler movies but it was really funny!
We thought the Love Nugget would be waking up super early since he went to bed at 6:00 and usually doesn’t go to sleep until 7:00. However, he slept until 7:00 which meant we did as well. Yay!
Off to make some breakfast then head to the gym for a Saturday workout! Thinking some Cross fit today…
Have a great weekend!
