Hey y'all! Hope you had a great weekend! Ours was a weird combo of being super duper busy but still managing to get a ton done and home and starting the week feeling relaxed and refreshed. Believe me, that miracle doesn't happen often around here!
I thought I would share with you a few things I'm digging this morning as we are getting our day off the ground....
Um, coffee! Nick bought me some Door County coffee for me and had it sent to me while he was out of town with business last week. So thoughtful. Of course it is Pumpkin Spice...my fave! Also, I am doing the Trim Healthy Mama eating plan which I LOVE! but the one thing I miss so much is Pumpkin Spice Creamer. I use real cream and stevia in my coffee these days so the flavored coffee allows me to still have the taste. It's the best Jerry, the best!
Adorbs outfits as Emma would call them! This weekend I went up to the attic and got down the seasonal clothing bin (I buy so many of them I have a bin dedicated to holiday outfits. So handy and then they aren't taking up room in their closets when it's not time for them!). I brought down all of the Halloween outfits and I was so excited to see this one because I bought it in the spring and had completely forgotten about it. So much fun! There's also a matching outfit for her American Girl doll. I am having a blast dressing her like this and she is still not complaining about how I dress her (Thank you, thank you Jesus!)
Isn't she just the cutest?
This sweet boy was a champ with his spelling this morning! This year we switched to Spelling Workout curriculum. Cal is a level C and Emma is a level E. Isn't that cute how that worked out? Anyway, they both had tests this morning so he was having a quick review before we dove into it.
It's been an amazing curriculum and they both seem to really enjoy it. Anyone else using this?
This visual timer. Wow am I loving this thing today.
I bought this for Cal about 3 years ago. He hated it. We tried it for time frames such as when he needed to get dressed but he would take the batteries out and hide them and then hide the timer and then it didn't work. Funny how that works, right?
But this year we've been using it a lot with school. Emma loves to use it for her work. 15 minutes of spelling? She just sets the timer and it dings at her when her time is up. Easy-peasy. If you have kiddos who struggle with transitioning from activity to activity or need a little help keeping track of their time, this thing is great!
Well that's it...a quick list of things I'm loving today as we are quickly diving into the week! Can't wait to see all that is in store for us this week. I think it's going to be an amazing week here and I hope it is for you as well!
