Weekend Update

Did y'all spring your clocks forward?  Good thing my mom reminded me about this on Saturday, because I had NO IDEA!  I wonder how many people will be an hour late to work tomorrow?  There's always someone!

But, on to the weekend...

Friday morning started off with these crazies in my car.  :)   And let me tell you, he was NOT happy when we got to daycare and he had to ditch those orange goggles!!

Friday night I headed to my friend's 31 party. Other than spilling my sangria on her floor, it was a lovely time!   Hubs was at his own function so we had our friend Miss Christy come over and watch the boys.  They still have not stopped talking about all the fun they had with Miss Christy!

Saturday morning we started up Soccer Tots again.  We attempted to enroll Alec in a class.  Let's just say it did not go well.  Looks like Nick will be going solo!  The afternoon was spent watching movies with the kids (Wreck it Ralph), snacking on popcorn, and baking cupcakes while the hubby worked diligently in the den on his college course.  Saturday night we had some delish Mexican take out, I gave myself a new jamicure, and then I fell asleep on the couch about 9pm.  Welcome to my exciting life!!  In my defense, I went to bed around midnight the night before, and then got up at 4am because Nick would not go back to sleep!!  So I was running on fumes all day!

Sunday the hubby let me sleep in (ahhh, heaven).  When I got up, I got the kids dressed and out of the house so he could continue working on his course (poor guy spent pretty much the entire weekend doing school work).  We had a quick lunch, then went to Michaels and got some cute craft items and Easter decorations, and then headed to Target.  We spent several minutes in the Lego aisle (of course), checked out the dollar bins (cuz you just have to!) and picked up a couple things I needed for dinner.  By the time we got to the checkout, Nick was whining his legs hurt and Alec was trying to climb out of the cart.  So... I didn't get my latte from Tarbucks (the Target Starbucks).  BOO

Love my new little Easter baskets from Michaels!

Once we got home, the rest of the afternoon was spent Lego building, doing laundry, catching up on blog reading, online shopping (can't wait to get my new duvet cover and pillows!!!) and watching Octonauts, Teen Titans and Winnie the Pooh.

Sunday dinner was foil packet Italian chicken.  Have you ever cooked with foil?  I love it!  It's quick, easy, and there is virtually NO clean up!  I normally cook the foil packets on the grill, but since my grill is still covered in snow, I just popped it in the oven.

Before cooking- right before I folded it all up into a nice little packet

The finished product
Sometime this week I'll post the recipe.  It's perfect for a busy weeknight and really the variations are endless!

So friends, how was your weekend?  Any big plans for the week?


  1. Hey girl! Yeah we did the Target run too this weekend....woohooo. Love your Easter basket, too cute. Your hubby rocks for getting his education on and still letting you get a sleep in morning. Kudos to him. My blog is down while I pick up some mom's husband's dad passed away unexpectedly. Hope I get to churn some posts out later!

  2. Love your jamicure! Foil packets are awesome because of the 'no clean up.' I have never heard someone say Tarbucks…but that is too funny.

  3. I love your nails! You do them perfectly!

  4. I've never tried the foil packet idea but now I'm going to. YUM!! Thanks for linking up at MeetUp Monday! Hope to see you again tomorrow!! (
