Lilypie Kids Birthday tickers

Fab 5 Friday...and ME!!!

It was a pretty fabulous week! Family time, warm weather (at least some of the time), and healthy, fun-loving girls...what more could a mama want???

1) Despite the DREAD that always consumes me before every time change, the girls have done really well adjusting to the new clock. Sunday was a long day, but we filled it with all sorts of excitement – including lunch at our favorite Mexican dive – and time spent playing outside. Whew!

2) The girls attended their first pancake breakfast this past weekend, with our Mothers of Multiples group. No doubt fueled by the Curious George story we read every week, they were so excited when I told them our plans on Saturday morning. They ran around, chanting, “I’m excited for my breakfast!” They had a great time, played with all their twin friends, and napped like logs afterwards.

3) Daddy was out of school for election day on Tuesday. We took a trip to the Louisville Zoo, and the girls were so excited to see the baby polar bear and get a close-up look at the elephants. They thoroughly enjoyed our lunch at Macaroni Grill (even getting into dipping their bread in olive oil!), and napped on the way home. It was a fantastic family day!

4) Daddy’s best friend came down from Chicago for a short visit this week. The girls hadn’t seen Uncle Steve since they were about six months old…but they wasted no time in warming up to him, and then climbing all over him and showing all their “tricks”. It was awesome to see Hubby, Steve, and A and B wrestling around in the den, and later curled up on the couch reading books.

5) I have pulled out several of the books I had when I was growing up to read to the girls recently, including “The Three Little Pigs”. I edit a bit here and there as a read, but the girls burst into giggles when I squeal about my “chinny-chin-chin”. After a meal this week, Baby A reminded me, “Don’t forget to wipe my chinny-chin-chin!

And what did I do for ME this week???

Thursday night I met Aunt Shanda for the first peppermint mocha of the season…and then we indulged in a little shopping. Good latte…good time…great friend…definitely good for the soul.

What made your week FABULOUS? And what did you do for YOU?

My older son is a three little pigs fan as well. We grabbed the old Disney silly symphonies Three Little Pigs at Sams or Costco sometime in the last year and he love that as well.

Hey! Long time no chat! I miss you...

The time change was hard on us over here. I slept for three hours that afternoon and it took Miss B a few days to get back in to the routine.

I'm so jealous you had a peppermint mocha. I'm off sugar and coffee and could really use some from time to time.

I had my first peppermint moccha last night! It was officially the beginning of the holiday season for me. : )

Have a great weekend!!

I made a quick Starbucks run this morning - but just to bring it home to DH and I for breakfast. Gingerbread Latte was calling my name but I almost got the Peppermint Mocha instead...such a touch choice! Just means I'll need to make a return visit soon!! ha!

Would love a leisurely coffee with a friend though...feeling horribly disconnected from everyone lately :-(

your weeks always sound so great - idyllic, like you're on holiday. Hahahaha (I know it's not sunshine and roses all the time, but you choose to look for the positive)

I'm not a big coffee fan but they do a caramel coffee here that I love so much I've banned myself from buying a can.

Sounds like another fabulous week indeed! And that time out with a friend sounds heavenly. I'm so overextended right now. I need to find a way to get back some me time soon.

Hope you're having a great week!
