A {Vlog} + Monday Musings + A Week in Review


Hey!

Prior to school starting I took out the time to craft this amazing schedule detailing how I wanted everything to run for the new school year. Said schedule was worked down to minute details on what time dinner would be started, children bathed, a laundry schedule etc.  The first week was a little iffy, bedtimes were on point but everything else was pretty much a nah.

 

Not to be outdone or defeated I started last week with the intention  to stick to my schedule and it worked….IT WORKED. Did I mention IT WORKED.

Stuff around here for once was running like a well oiled machine. Baby in the bed by 8, load of laundry done every night. Even found time to take the children outside to play after homework.  I did that. Hopeful that this week will run just as smooth and I’ll keep it up.

Make sure you ask your kids about their day

How many days does it take for something to become a habit?!

We have a pretty low key week ahead, nothing too drastic or out of the norm. I have a few meetings, Adrian has school pictures and I am finally going to get my hair in Senegalese Twists thanks to a gift card that I received from StyleSeat. I’ll tell you more about that and show you my hair later in the week.

This past weekend we laid low. It was one of the only weekends for the next month or so that I didn’t have anything to do on either Saturday or Sunday and I just went with the flow.

Saturday I had every intention to create a no sew blind for my kitchen window only to get it up there and decide that I missed the light from the window during the day. I think my long term solution  will be putting in a shade that I can lift up and down.

The project called for tension rods that you would pull the fabric above to create these pleats. Well mine didn’t go so well and I ended up just taking it down. I know you wanted to see, sorry I didn’t take a picture!!! I did, I’m just not sharing.

I ended up taking the tension rods I purchased for the project back to Target after making two trips there…I took you with me on my last trip.

How was the last week(end) for you? Anything amazing planned for this week?

  1. We started back to school yesterday and all went well! I am a little tired since I have been getting up even earlier than my summer early schedule. I’ll have to sneak in some rest time as the week progresses.

    I am excited about your Senegalese twists and can’t wait to see them. I think I mentioned how my Hubby finally sorta said no to me getting them and I chopped instead. LOL

    Have a great week with the family..sorry for writing a book instead of a comment! LOL

  2. I almost spit all of my DRANK on my laptop! I’m sorry.. but I was just not expected you to say that and I had to scream and laugh out loud at that. Trust me, it has happened to the best of us. I bought some cheap leggings, washed them a few times, and yea.. LOL!

    Like you, I’ve also decided to stick with a schedule and it’s working out great for us so far.

    I love the pic of you and the babies on the porch. So cute!!

  3. I watched your video earlier this week. You’re too funny, LOL. (I love visiting your blog) I’m hoping this weekend will be productive with DIY projects and completed task. I don’t have anything fancy or exciting in mind though.

  4. OK. I loved this video. We’ve all made the know it all miscalculations and been forced back to Target. I thought you were going to pull a slip out of that bag instead of a push up bra. 🙂 Recently a lady stopped me at the end of the day and told me my slip was hanging 3″ out of the bottom of the dress. That’s what I get for wearing a slip…like no one does anymore!

    1. A slip!! So funny you mentioned a slip, just the other day I was talking to somebody about how we used to wear slips and we had a great laugh at whether or not they even sell them anymore! Thanks for stopping by!
