Happy Friday!! It's been a great, healthy week at our house. We've done fun things with friends, played outside and enjoyed some beautiful Indiana weather. Anyone else having a really WARM winter?? I think that the ground hog was a bit off this year :) I took the kids on a quick road trip and we had a blast. It was a good reminder to me that adventures are always worth the effort. I think Fletcher's big smile on my dad's lap means that he agrees!
The highlights of our week were:

New Glasses... on Accident
I've had a rough time with my eyes lately - pink eye, running out of contacts, trouble finding a new eye doctor, etc. So I was thrilled to find a great eye doctor and get new contacts this week. I was wearing my glasses and I asked one of the tech's to adjust them for me while I waited. It had been a few years since I'd had them looked at so I figured it was time. She tightened all the screws and then set out to adjust the side pieces. She promptly snapped my glasses in half!
We were both horrified and she looked like she was going to barf. I didn't even know what to say. She handed them back to me and assured me she'd fix things. I looked at the frames and quickly realized they were beyond fixing. My heart sank a bit because I really liked those glasses. I also have a large head and it's always tricky to find glasses to fit me. So her boss comes over and tells me to look around and pick out a new pair. She says they'll just switch over my lenses. I try on lots of options, stress a bit over having to make a quick decision and end up picking out these new frames. I didn't intend to get new glasses this week, but I'm pretty happy with them. Especially since they were free :)

St Patrick's Day
I picked up a few new St. Patrick's Day items at Target this week. I found this cute polka-dot banner on clearance and this glittery shamrock for $3. I got my whole house cleaned and dusted so I'm hoping to decorate for St. Patrick's Day. March is going to be an exciting month with St. Patrick's Day and Fletcher's first birthday!

I love to make food for the holidays and fun plates of food for my kids. So it's exciting to get a shout out for my efforts. My snowman breakfast got regrammed by Cheerios this week! I've got some cute ideas for clovers, rainbows and St. Patrick's Day in March.
My husband requested Cinnamon Roll Monkey Bread this week so that was probably our most delicious treat of the week :)

As I mentioned, the weather has been gorgeous lately! My current exercise plan is to load up our double stroller and push for at least an hour. The kids love to go for stroller rides and it's been a great way to keep me accountable. Olive reminds me to go on walks and makes sure that we walk as often as possible. We've also been playing outside and enjoying seeing the sun again.

The kids and I went on a quick road trip to visit my family on Sunday. We loaded up the car and had a wonderful day. The kids are really great travelers and it was so nice to see our family. We had a delicious lunch. My mom made homemade meatballs and I've got to get her recipe because they were so good. The kids loved seeing everyone and our time flew by. Fletcher had a moment of fussing in the car and I looked back to see Olive holding his hand. Such a sweet big sis :)
