New Years Weekending


Monday, January 4, 2016

This weekend flew by in an instant. We were so busy prepping for the girls first birthday party that I don't think I did much else than that. But it was so worth it in the end. The girls first birthday party was a success. I have to go through our camera before I can make a post dedicated to their party.

Thursday we worked until 2 pm. We then took the babies to Total Wine to get some liquor/wine/beer for the party (for us, not them). It was pretty chilly that day, so we snuggled up to the fire and hung out. And I spent hours putting together the girls' kitchen they got from their aunt Ashley for Christmas. They LOVE the kitchen. They have spent everyday pulling out all the items, pulling themselves up and play cooking. So adorable.

I finished putting together the kitchen while bathing the girls and cooking dinner. It was an exhaustive evening. But we drank champagne by the fire and watched the ball drop at midnight (NYC time). We went to bed around 10:30.

Friday we had off and it was spent going to brunch, hanging out with the girls, a quick grocery shopping trip and dinner at my in-laws. We didn't get to spend Christmas with my sister-in-law and brother-in-law. They were in Kansas City visiting his family. So we had our Christmas Friday evening. The girls opened up gifts from their aunt and uncle, we had a tasty dinner and watched some football.

Saturday we had an early breakfast, so I could head off and finish all the prep work for the girls birthday. I went to Costco gas, Costco, Hobby Lobby, Target, Starbucks and then to my sisters house. We baked and frosted cupcakes at her house since her oven is so much better than mine (Brand New!). Then I had to hit up the grocery store for the weekly groceries and food for the party. I got home around 5:30 after leaving around 11 am. But I got it all done!!!

While I was away, the girls were playing with their kitchen, hanging with their dad and they even went to a Nevada Wolf Pack basketball game with their dad, grandparents and aunt and uncle. And the Pack won!!

We were exhausted (again), so we ordered pizza after the girls went to bed and watched the Oregon vs. TCU game. Such an amazing comeback. So glad we caught the game from the 4th quarter on.We also jumped on the Making A Murderer bandwagon. We are two episodes in and I am so intrigued. So good. But makes me so mad. Have you seen it? What do you think so far? Please don't spoil anything. I won't even google anything on it because I want to watch it ALL spoilerish free.

Sunday we were up bright and early again to grab coffee and pastries to go and come home to party prep. The girls party was a huge success and they were so spoiled. They had the best time and the cake smash was a success. I can't wait to share their party with you. Hopefully later this week.

I hope you had a good weekend. And I hope this next weekend is less chaotic, but just as much fun.
