{week in the life - saturday}

It's Saturday! Keira loves it when I make her toaster waffles...she is typically not a big breakfast eater so anything I can get in her is fine by me.

When she woke up this morning she insisted upon getting dressed right away and this was the *outfit* she chose.....pants and a dress. It's way too cold for a dress right now but I humored her and let her wear it til we left ;)

I mixed up half a batch of pancakes and burned the first two because I was checking facebook on my phone.


My binder where I keep all my recipes. I have a cooking magazine addiction you see.... ;)

Adam got up late and since there was no pancake batter left I made him eggs with bacon & toast. (now I am realizing that I cooked 3 breakfasts....oops!)

Keira likes to dig through my scrapping supplies and find things to play with.


"practicing" her letters


Catching up on a little bit of scrapping before getting in the shower.

We had decided last week that today we would take Keira up to the museum to see a dinosaur exhibit. While we were getting ready to go she says, "look mommy! I spelled my name! k-e-i-a!" Ok so she forgot the R but I would say that's pretty good for 2 ;)


Before going to the museum we stopped for lunch at Red Robin.


This was actually Keira's 2nd time at the dinosaur exhibit; she got to go once before with grandma & grandpa, but was a little scared that time. This time she wasn't scared at all.

Heading back to the car.

At the gift shop, Keira picked out a dinosaur book and magnets. We also picked out a stuffed dinosaur for new little brother.

Made some broccoli cheese soup for supper. Have been craving it!

We had some limbs fall down in the back from the wind the other night so Adam was outside cleaning that up. Then I looked up and noticed he was fishing on the bank :) He didn't catch anything though. No bait to be had! It's too cold.

Then I'm eating my soup, look up and notice that Keira has somehow wedged herself into her doll bed.

Like the good mother I am, I rushed and got the camera before I helped her out :) haha!

{week in the life - friday}

Today was a busy busy day! We got a late start this morning thanks to me oversleeping by half an hour ;) Work was very busy too so not too many photos.
Breakfast at work, hashbrowns with cheese & some bacon.

I found this for my boss, she was always saying how we needed one of these in the office!

I never want to cook on Friday night. Stopped for tacos after I picked Keira up. She eats chicken tacos plain, no cheese or lettuce. I always have to tell them that 5 times before they get the order right ;)

After we got home and ate, Keira played with her ponies for awhile....oh the pony obsession!

Keira's favorite activity book right now.

After her bath, Keira ate her grapes and watched cartoons in Daddy's recliner.

Grocery list/meal plan for this past week.

I keep all Keira's artwork on the side of the fridge.

Hunter was being extra rowdy tonight.

Sat down to check out the Hy-Vee ad while Keira finished her snack.

I wanna say cheese, mommy!

{week in the life - thursday}

First thing in the morning the laundry and I meet again.

Keira is in a good mood this morning :)

She decides her puppy needs to sit on the potty.


Packing Adam's lunch, which he left on the counter and forgot to take to work. Lol.

Out the door at 6:45.

Heading to grandma's.

Waiting for the bus.

23 weeks! Glad it's Thursday because that means tomorrow's Friday ;)

Off work at 4:30.

Keira plays while I make dinner.

Homemade pizzas with veggies and ranch.

We were all tired tonight so instead of playing outside after supper Keira did an art project.

Adam watched the NFL draft. He was tired tonight too after getting lumber after work to finish Keira's playset in the back yard.

Keira took an early bath.


Trying to clean up my scrap table a little bit before bed :)

{week in the life - wednesday}

Good morning - throwing some clothes in the dryer after I get out of the shower.

6 am - wake Keira up. Yawn!

Brew some coffee.

Keira watches Diego while I finish getting ready.

Juice - check. Baby - check. Ready to go.

We're actually getting out the door on time this morning!

Keira's musical selection this morning ;)

Going to Grandma's house.

Getting to work 15 mins early - score! I used to be way early all the time before I had a child....now I am always late ;)

I still think hospital breakfasts are the best!


Lunch is pasta and a salad.

Getting gas on the way home @ Casey's.

Grandma got Keira a bubble blower today and she wanted to play with it as soon as we got home.

Grilling for supper, the weather was so nice. As the food was getting done the propane tank ran out though ;)

Hot dogs & brats, chips and fruit salad for dinner. Important to note that Keira would not eat the hot dog as it had "black things" on it (grill marks)......eye roll! She is so picky right now ;)

Look inside the fridge...

After supper Keira wanted to go back outside so we took a walk around the yard. She loves to pick up sticks and help put them in the burn pile.

The dandelions are plentiful right now!

The clematis is blooming like crazy.



Adam showing Keira the buds on the plum tree.

Hunter is slowly getting used to the bigger yard and exploring more and more.

Back inside for a bath.

Since she clearly couldn't eat the hot dog with the "black things" she ate a bunch for bedtime snack - granola bar, yogurt, cheese and grapes!

Hunter is pooped. Good night!
