Happy This Week

I know, I know! I’ve been M.I.A. I apologize! I’ve been reading book after book after book and playing ping pong and Disney’s Scene It and watching movies and not being anywhere near a computer!! I promise I will be back next week when I’m back to work and get my nose out of a book. The good news is there will be book reviews and pictures from Christmas coming soon!!

The cinnamon bread from this bakery right outside my neighborhood is to die for. I shouldn’t eat it…but it’s so ridiculous I have it anyway. My BFF brought me some when she came over for dinner earlier this week…and we went back and got more!

We went out with friends for dinner last weekend…friends we haven’t seen in ages! It was so much fun. Then my BFF and her family came over for dinner on Monday. I love spending time with my besties! I just wish there was more time to see the rest of them! (I’m talking to you Cyd and Sherri! šŸ˜‰ )

Sleeping in…drinking coffee while watching the snow fall…and reading a good book. Perfection!

Matt and I went cross country skiing this week. That is a GREAT workout! It was fun even though I’m not very good at it. It was nice to be in the quiet woods surrounded by the beautiful snow.

We went to see Frozen again…I love that movie! Olivia and I are reading the Frozen chapter book too. She is still adding more and more words to her reading repertoire. It’s fun to have her follow along and say the words she knows. She will sit and listen for hours!

Matt and I went to see Anchorman 2…it was very funny. There was one scene in particular, with Steve Carrell, that had us laughing so hard we almost needed to leave!

We also watched Olympus Has Fallen (very good and action packed) and Hangover III (funny) and The Heat (one of my all-time faves!). We watched E.T. with the boys on New Year’s Eve. They loved it!

The boys made it up until midnight on New Year’s Eve. Their first time! We blew up balloons and labeled them for each hour and they took turns popping them. They were so excited about it. Who knew that Pinterest idea would be such a good one?

I’ve been cooking all week. I miss cooking when I’m working! There’s just not enough time on a normal Wednesday to take 2 hours to make Pioneer Woman’s chicken and noodles or a Mexican fiesta!

I’m on season 2 of 24. Did any of you watch that show? I LOVE IT! Jack’s voice drives me a little nuts and his daughter is annoying…but overall it’s a great show!

I read a bunch of awesome books these past 2 weeks. Did you know I love to read? HAHAHA!

It’s 2014…the year I officially have a teenager!!

What made you happy this week?
