{Friday Five and a catch-up of sorts}

Hi Friends!!! TGIF! I haven't been able to muster up the energy to blog much this week, so this will be a catch up post of sorts! I can't believe this is the last full week of September! The days are just flying by, it seems! I can't believe Christmas is in just three short months!! And just like every year, I failed in the "starting early" thing I say I'm going to do every.single.year. I don't even have ideas! Anyhow, here is a little bit of what's going on with us lately.


I am loving the semi-Fallish type weather we've had lately....but with that comes sickness! I have had something going on all week...mostly a deep cough and just junk in my throat. It's taken a lot out of me, though! My whole body aches...just from coughing so much! I've been sleeping in the living room all week because I don't want to keep my boys awake. Plus, it helps to sit up. I am so over this, for sure!


Fall TV!!!! I am so excited that some of my favorite shows are coming back on....Parenthood, Grey's Anatomy, Scandal, Beauty and the Beast, New Girl, The Walking Dead, Revenge, Hart of Dixie, Chicago Fire,  and Nashville!!! There are a few new ones I am going to give a try, too. Anything I should add to my watch list??


I think we are going to go camping after Mason's blast ball game on Saturday. He plays at 9am and the games only last 20 minutes. Nate's parents are at Meridian State Park, so we may join them for a night. I'm excited, since it's not miserably hot. And it will be nice for Mason to get out and play and get dirty and well, just be a boy!


Mason's behavior has been so great this week!!! He has been so kind and sweet and cooperative. He hasn't given us any problems at bed time or in the morning! He will ask to watch Netflix for 5 minutes each night. I set a timer on my phone and when the alarm goes off he hands me the Kindle without any fuss! It's been nice. And I don't want to jinx anything, but he's been great at school drop off in the morning. I go in with him and sit with him a few minutes while he eats his breakfast. And when it's time to go he hugs and kisses me and goes on about his business. I know for some Mama's that's hard...but it's harder for me when he cries for me! Such a big boy! 


And the biggest news I learned this week.......I will be working FROM HOME full time by the end of October!!!!! Goodbye hour commute in the mornings and sometimes evenings!!!!! Goodbye to filling up my tank twice a week. Goodbye to traffic! And good riddance to this cute little office!!!! I really did like this office and the area, but nothing trumps working from home! I am excited that I can do laundry and cleaning throughout the day while working and I can have dinner ready by the time Nate gets home! I think I might actually put to use some of those 9992837349837490 pins I have in my recipes and crafts boards on Pinterest!!!! And I can't wait to design my new home office! I already have a desk, just trying to decide which color of Annie Sloan chalk paint I want to slap on it! 

What have you been up to this week?

  4. Yay for working from home!! I'm quite jealous!! I'm so excited about Fall TV too! I have all my shows & some new ones recording & I'm trying really hard to keep busy and ignore them on the DVR so I'll have lots to watch while I'm home on maternity leave! And, I love Meridian State Park! I've only been once, but I would love to go back!! I just adore how quiet the lake is!

  5. Yea for Hart of Dixie and Nashville!! So excited for you that you will be working from home now! That is such a blessing and I'm sure that your family will enjoy it so much!! Congrats!
