Happy Monday friends! …so let's just jump right into my MIMM today Open-mouthed smile



Wednesday night we (Mike and I) had the pleasure of taking Kennedy to go see her best friend perform in a Christmas play. Her friend moved about an hour away a year and a half ago, but the girls have been able to still see each other a number of times a year, and spend countless hours facetiming with each other (what would we do these days without technology). So when we were invited to come watch her perform – we immediately accepted. We wend into it thinking it was going to be a little Christmas play that would be…you know…ok…but the more important thing was going to be that we were going to support her friend…and the two girls could see each other before the holidays…well…as soon as the curtains opened…we couldn’t have been more wrong. This was a full fledged PROFESSIONAL show…it was amazing!!!! The costumes, the sets, the acting, the singing…it truly blew my socks off! It was a great night, and a wonderful reminder of what this holiday season is truly all about!...and it’s always fun to be able to get to spend some one-on-one time with the kids.


Friday night – K was off to her first of 3 bday parties over the weekend, and Mike was out with the boys…so J and I headed out to dinner together! Nachos and French fries for my crazy little boy! We had a great time together, and then after we headed home…it was time for a very serious game of Uno. J loves games, he loves to win…and he is surprising very good at card games!


Hahahahaha…this has had me laughing so hard…so now whenever Mike “toot’s” I tell him that his bum is snoring again…lol


Date night!!! Last night was my cheat meal for the week – so Mike and I headed out for dinner. Love that we get to do this; and over the course of the last year…we have tried really hard to make this a weekly occurrence. It does my soul happy to have this time alone with him. I read a great article this morning about marriage and being happy. I couldn’t agree more with all their tips…check it out here


What?!?!? This morning I woke up, and realized that I now have 1K followers on IG.  Crazy...

Have a fab Monday friends!

Thanks Katie for hosting today.

  1. So many marvelous things this week!!!
    Awesome that you got to see Kennedy's friend and her play.
    I'm sort of liking the idea of nachos and fries - great combo!!!
    Chris and I should do better about going out - seems like we go out on dates less now that the boys are older and we don't need a sitter than we did when they were young. We occasionally have date days - even if it means cleaning the venue together before we have lunch!!!
