Happy Friday!

Ah, the end of another week and the beginning of the weekend!  Why does this make a stay-at-home-mom so happy?  Perhaps because it means dad is home too and we get some major family time.  But, truth is, I don’t dread Mondays because I love my (new) job:) Sadly, my little guy was sick this week.  He’s on the mend, but I think he felt like this image which made mom feel like this  image Needless to say, I didn’t get much done this week.  Except, oh yeah, this was the week I agreed to do some contract work for my old firm.   I did manage to complete the work in between naps and over a few late nights.   But this weekend, I am determined to finish making the curtains for my office and complete a few other projects around the house.  Isn’t it a great feeling to go into the weekend with a fresh start attitude?  And our weather isn’t hurting things.  Houston is currently enjoying those rare couple of weeks each year when the weather is absolutely perfect.  And we REALLY enjoy it after sweltering in the humid heat all summer.  What are your weekend plans?

  1. Sorry James was sick. 🙁 Glad he's feeling better. It's so hard on us mommies… but the extra cuddle time is pretty awesome. 🙂
    We are going to the pumpkin patch on Saturday!!! It's this huge park that has train rides and a zoo and a huge pumpkin patch! I'm pretty excited. 🙂

  2. Glad to hear the little guy is on the mend! Sometimes it's their way of saying…"mom slow down". We too have been experiencing beautiful weather. Will spend the weekend doing some much needed things around the house (volleyball is over).

  3. So sorry to hear your little guy's been poopy this week. It's the pits! My Little Man is in the midst of teething yet again and boy has it been fun! Hopefully, everyone at your house gets some much needed rest this weekend…even if "sleeping in" doesn't happen.

  4. Awww your poor little guy! 🙁

    This weekend will consist of some Fall cleaning. Ive been working the past 12 days straight and haven't been home to do anything… ugh… so… needless to say the weekend will consist of some much needed 'tending to the house'.

    We are also getting that same weather you are getting, and you are right, it's just a few short weeks this time of year when it happens. I love it!

  5. Sorry your little guy is sick! A sick child is never a fun time. We have a three day weekend here (yay!) so headed over to check on my parents house they are building – the kitchen is a very similar color scheme to yours! Have a great weekend!

  6. So hard to watch your little one be sick. Enjoy the fabulous weather. We are planning to lay low with lots of family time.

  7. I hope your little guy is feeling better soon. It is so sad when the are so little and sick! It is our (Canadian) Thanksgiving this weekend so we will be super busy. Enjoy your weekend…I am looking forward to seeing your office soon!

  8. Sick season is here already, I think our little one is starting her second sickness of the season, gotta love preschool.
    Happy to hear James is feeling better, just in time for the weekend! Love the pictures, the momma pic is right on! Have a fabulous weekend!

  9. So sorry James was sick…never any fun. Better now than in kindergarten though. 🙂

    We've got soccer, greek food and pumpkin patches in our weekend…and hopefully some progress on Sloan's room! ack

  10. I can't wait to see your finished office!! Hope James is feeling better (:

    I'm going to see the new movie called Life As We Know It with Katherine Heigl. Then church on Sunday and of course, homework! Yay!

  11. Oh, poor James. I hope he is feeling better. He might just want his momma even with his daddy home. So don't stress if you don't get those projects done, there is always next weekend.

  12. I just love weekends. They are the icing on the cupcakes of life : )

    This weekend we went to the park and to my Mom's and on a picture taking adventure! Super wonderful. And I am so excited that there is one whole day left tomorrow! YAY!

    Sadly, my husband has to work on the weekends as his company has mandatory overtime : ( I miss him.
