Week in Review

This past week has been too busy for words.  Literally.  I am awake waaaaay to early this morning, but I figured I'd blog before the boys are up and at 'em.  Here's my week in review...

1.  In addition to parent-teacher conferences, my grade also completed our service learning project.  Our kids made fringe fleece blankets for this organization.  I also did a plethora of super fun Thanksgiving activities that I have every intention of posting about...but I keep forgetting to take pictures!  Argh.

2.  I went thrifting with my sister.  I bought a cute scarf for 50 cents and that was about it.  Well, and I might have bought the most adorable Babygap peacoat for my future daughter.  That I don't have the intention of having for another 2-3 years.  I couldn't resist it for a buck fifty.  Is that weird?  Don't answer that.

3.  Becks and I went to the new Kroger that just opened in our area.  LOVE IT.  Omiword, it has a Starbucks in it, enormous aisles for your 2-year-old to sprint down as you barrel after him, and I was one of the first three hundred customers there yesterday morning (mostly for Starbucks and donuts) so I got free cheese!  It doesn't get better than free cheese at 8am. 

4.  Strangely, despite the chaos, our house managed to stay somewhat clean, the laundry was caught up, and we had food to eat.  It is uncommon that all three of those things are mastered simultaneously.

5. I bought Becks Christmas jammies.  That he insisted on wearing immediately.  Again, 2-year-olds are awesome.
 6.  I probably haven't mentioned it much in the past couple months, but I am taking two grad school classes this semester.  And, honestly, grad school has been the least of my worries. Dare I say that I have found it to be substaintially easier than undergrad?  Like, totally cake.  Anyway, it's the end of the semester, so of course there's like 20,000 things due.  I spent most of yesterday writing a 5-page paper on a cultural immersion experience.  It was thrilling.

7.  Can I just take a second to note that I feel like everyone is pregnant?  If you check out the sidebar blogs that I frequent, TEN of the blog authors have added recently or are adding to their family soon.  And I have many other IRL friends who are preggo too.  Not that I'm jealous or anything...

8.  Don't you hate how all things expensive tend to hit in the same month?  I mean car insurance and car tags both being due in December is just wrong. 

9.  B and I went to a jazz lounge last night for one of his classes.  We actually really enjoyed ourselves.  It was kind of like a mandatory date. Something we haven't made the time for since life went crazy busy back in August.  
10.  The upcoming week is just as busy...but more relaxing :)  And our Thanksgiving forecast includes snow showers.  I'm pumped! 

Off to the new Kroger for the Sunday paper!  Have a great day, y'all :)

It is weird how grad school seems easier. I think the professors must realize we have lives outside class haha.

Let me just tell you that it is not weird to buy a $1.50 coat for a child you've not yet gestated. Heck, my BFF won a fancypants breastpump in a sweepstakes when she was about 20 because she knew she'd need it one day. I'm not to that level of "preparedness," but I did buy some precious Sperry-knockoff-sneaker-things for my won't-be-born-for-another-4-years-or-so-son. When I went to Target and saw that the price had been lowered from $7.48 to $3.13, I knew we were meant to be. So, a doctoral dissertation later, nope, not weird. =)

1.I agree that two year olds are awesome!
2.No, buying a coat for the unborn is not weird! Ha! I have done similar.
3. I totally get the pregnant thing. I know you say you are waiting, but I would LOVE to be right now and it does feel like everyone I know is. Ugh.
4. I should so take pics of some of the Tgiving activites we have been doing in 3rd grade and blog about it. Good idea. 5.This may be the longest comment ever, but I am reading blogs while my boys are still asleep too. Gotta love that!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend and the upcoming break!! Yay!

As always, your little man is adorable! Love the PJs.

I feel the same way about grad school. I'm halfway through my program and feel like its been completely easy! Hope it stays that way...

Have a wonderful weekend!!

FREE CHEESE?! I am so jealous!!

I can't get over the abundance of pregnant bloggers either... almost makes me feel like I am missing out or something.

Jamie said...

Sounds like you've been busy!

Love the blankets and B's pjs :)

I agree with you...grad school was SO much easier for me!

Hope you're having a wonderful weekend :)

Ashley said...

oh I'm so jealous you might get snow on Thanksgiving! It's supposed to be 70 here all week. Not quite the weather to get you in the spirit! ohwell. :)
And to piggyback on statement #7, yes, everyone IS pregnant! For me it's seven teachers at my small (k-2) school + 4 friends + my sister-in-law ! I'm totally jealous and no afraid to recognize that. :)

Christmas pajamas make my heart go pitter patter! Love them. And, did you know that you mentioned pregnancy twice in this short little post? I'd say that's frequent for not wanting to be pregnant for several more years;-)
