We took a quick weekend trip to watch all the bowl games at my in laws. We managed to visit with some family, have coffee dates with friends and enjoy the weekend. It was nice to come back home this week and get back to our regular day to day routines. I planned some healthy meals, stocked up on fruits and veggies and enjoyed being home.
The best parts of our week were...
1. We had fun watching Notre Dame play in their bowl game last weekend. It would have been fun for them to win, but we had fun eating game day food, wearing our game day apparel and putting on our game faces. Until next year college football :)
2. I've been craving lots of healthy foods this week - fruit, salads and colorful meals. Then I decided we needed some sweets so we whipped up some Funfetti cupcakes. They were just as delicious and they were pretty. I always used a boxed cake mix and make homemade buttercream frosting. The more sprinkles the better!! Olive helped me with the cupcakes and I did the frosting during her nap time.
3. We announced our baby boy's name this week so it was fun to hear all the nice comments. We can't wait to meet little Fletcher this Spring.
Do you have one little word for 2016??
5. We started house hunting again after the holidays. We saw several homes this week and have some strong contenders. Our parents are coming in town this weekend for a quick visit to give us some second opinions. Olive walked through every house and said, "Good for my toys!" every time she entered a room. It was cute to involve her in the house hunting process, but it's kind of exhausting to look at a house, watch a toddler closely and make sure you see everything. Thank heavens for 2nd and 3rd visits to properties.
Hope you have some fun plans for your weekend!
We are hoping to do make the most of the rainy days and enjoy just being home. Olive loves her new toys from Christmas and we're excited to relax.
