A Saturday in the Life | February 2018

Back in July of last year, I did a Photo Every Hour post to show what a typical day in our life looked like. I think this is such a fun way to capture the changing seasons of motherhood. Over the last couple months, our family has developed a little weekend ritual of sorts.

We wake up in the morning, eat breakfast, get everyone dressed and then we head out the door to the boys' swimming lessons at Goldfish Swim School. You may remember that last month, the boys graduated to new swim levels. So these days, Chuck drops Charlie off at his end of the pool and monitors him, while I hop into the pool on the other end with Crosby for his lesson.

This past weekend, Chuck was unfortunately not able to come with us because of a family funeral. So, I sat in the lobby with Crosby while Charlie did his lesson. After he was all dried off and dressed, we continued our weekly tradition and headed to Costco for lunch and shopping. I've been comparing Costco prices to my usual spots- Kroger and Aldi to see which is most affordable. It can be hit or miss, but I'll say this- where else can you get lunch for a family of four for $10.00?! It's amazing!

After the boys and I ate our hot dogs and pizza, we strolled around the store. I picked up a few must-have grocery items on our list, as well as some wine for my upcoming Galentine's Day Pajama Party. I also got shirts for both Chuck and myself.

Charlie was long overdue for a haircut, so since we were already in the Dayton area, we headed to Cookie Cutters Haircuts for Kids. This was our second time going there, and I love it soooo much. The kids get to choose their own little vehicle to sit in, the show they want to watch on Netflix, and the prize they want when their haircut is done. It's just a plain fun experience and Charlie looooves going to get his haircut now.

After Charlie got his haircut (which turned out super cute BTW!), we headed to At Home. It's a new home decor chain store and I'd heard enough good things that I wanted to check it out for myself. Honestly, I was kind of disappointed. It could have just been that it was soooo crowded so I couldn't really leisurely explore everything like I wanted to. But it kind of felt like the Hobby Lobby home decor section on steroids. It felt cheap, inauthentic, and overpriced. I think I'd like to give it another chance before I write it off entirely (during the week when it's not teeming with shoppers), but as of now, I'm pretty meh about it.

We were all getting tired when we left to return home. Once we got back, Crosby went down for a late nap (and so did I!). I had stayed out late the night before watching the 2 Dope Queens special on HBO with a friend and I was sooo exhausted from staying up past my bedtime. Charlie puttered around the house and then when everyone was awake again I got started on a quick dinner from The Whole30 Fast & Easy Cookbook (I know I'm a broken record, but guys, I loooove this cookbook!).

After dinner, we put the boys down for bed. Chuck left to hangout with his brother and I drank some wine and caught up on my shows (anyone else as obsessed with The Good Place as I am?!).

I'm just smitten with our wonderful life right now, and wouldn't trade it for anything.
