Here is why I don’t have a blog post written for this dreary Monday morning:
I spent my entire day with Gannon at the University of Iowa Hospitals – here is more on that story here: http://www.thepinkshoelaces.com/2019/10/12/gannons-big-day/
Saturday morning we were up bright and early by 5:30 am. Craig and I had breakfast together before the boys got up. Craig was off to work, I took the boys and we were off! Little did we know we were in for an adventure!
On our way to my sister’s baby shower we stopped at a rescue habitat Fontana Park near Hazleton. Carver was so lucky he got to go to the zoo! It was SO COLD but they had fox, eagle, skunk, raccoon, coyote, and usually they have a black bear!
Mom has posted on the blog about this awesome habitat before! Here’s a link: https://www.joscountryjunction.com/grandma-day/
Then it was on to the farmer’s market to find some fresh produce for mom to eat while she’s on her iodine free diet. Read more on that here: https://www.joscountryjunction.com/the-diet/
Check out this delicious pumpkin casserole! I LOVED IT and mom and I can’t wait to try it this weekend. Will update you guys with the recipe!
Then we kind of sort of ended up stopping at a random library and it happened to be a Halloween themed story hour so we sat and listened to a few books!
Then it was a quick run to Walmart to buy mom new shoes because hers totally busted out at the library:
Then it was on to the BABY SHOWER for my sweet baby nephew coming in January!
Then we flew back home for my friend Mariah’s wedding:
This is my best friend Regan:
We had such a blast catching up at the wedding while our boys talked farming.
Then this morning I woke up early because I know this next week is CRAZY BUSY and needs lots of prep work.
While I stayed busy there was plenty of snuggling:
Craig’s lunch got packed for the week
The toy room got tidied and organized
My new pillows came in the mail so I got those all set out
Craig our together my new computer desk
I penciled out the schedule for the week
I laid out the boy’s clothes for the week
I made a pan of brownies for Craig’s lunch
I ate most of the pan of brownies I made for Craig’s lunch.
Mountains of laundry got tackled
I did about 3 dishwasher loads of dishes
I did even more laundry
Clothes were sorted folded and put away
I made the worlds fastest meal prep meal: Tator tot casserole
I laid out my clothes for the week
I repacked the diaper bags
Made prime rib for supper
Made Mac and cheese with hotdogs for Carver when the sitter comes tomorrow night
I did even more laundry
Sorted through clinical paperwork
The boys both got baths
Took an inventory of things I need to pick up after work tomorrow night
Listened to just about every Dave Ramsey and Rachel Cruze podcast that exists
Realized it was 10 pm and that I needed to go to bed to be at work tomorrow
Went to bed and realized I never wrote a blog post
And those are all of the reasons why I don’t have a well thought out blog post for you all this morning!
Please forgive me, I hope this will do!
