Weekly Wins: Snow Day Edition

Happy Friday, friends!!

I don't have a long list of weekly wins for you this week, even though it's been a great week!

My biggest win this week is that we got a snow day on Thursday due to some snowfall and really cold temps with the windchill. And THEN we got another one, mainly due to the below 0 temps with the windchill around here. So I had a 2 day work week, and a 4 day weekend ahead, which means 4 straight days with my girl! Biggest win ever!

The other smaller wins for the week include getting my office furniture after a semi debacle leading up to everything, and actually feeling like my office looks/functions better than before.

Ella did really well at daycare this week (the two days) which we'd all been a little nervous about because of the separation anxiety we were dealing with over the holidays. Now that she's able to sit up and move around a bit more, she's interacting with the other kids more and I think having a lot more fun being able to really "play" more.

With the additional time off from work, I've gotten to breeze through my current book, Ready Player One, and should finish it today or tonight! I've prioritized reading over other things like The Bachelor (which I'm not that excited about anyway, sadly), and I feel a lot better for the choice.

Another small win was that MG got a 2 hour delay yesterday morning so we had a nice little family breakfast together, and some play time before he had to go to work.

I'll be bundling us up at some point today to go have a little playdate with our friends (somewhere warm), which is how every Friday should be, I think!

Hoping you're staying warm where you are, and to my friends in the NE, please please stay safe and warm! I know you're getting hit pretty hard!
I'll catch you all next week!!


  1. Yay for getting to be at home for a couple of days! Brandon and I went to college with Lauren S. from "The Bachelor" and are loving watching her on it. :)

  2. Apparently... the clingliness is a thing at this age. And lasts... for a while! I read until 2! Jacob is super clingy and hates when I'm not right by him. Sweet boy. Enjoy the snow day and stay warm!!!!

  3. Hooray for snow days! So happy to hear that your sweetie pie is doing well at daycare. I used to be a daycare provider for years so it always makes my heart light hearing that friends have their little ones in places they are enjoying. :) Wishing you a wonderful first weekend of 2018! xo - Brenda // Chatting Over Chocolate

  4. glad Ella is feeling good and you got some extra cuddle time. stay safe and warm.

  5. That's awesome you got a short week and more snuggle with your baby girl!

  6. Good for you for getting out this afternoon!

    I'm on WFH day two and not planning on going anywhere tonight or tomorrow either.

  7. Yay for snow days!!! It's nice to be able to just relax at home and watch the snow fall.

  8. I'm glad Ella did well at daycare! It's always so hard when you get them out of a routine. I haven't watched the Bachelor yet and not sure if I will. I was kind of over it when they made Nick the Bachelor.


I LOVE hearing your thoughts and comments--so, make my day and leave me some lovin'!
