Last Friday Sleep In

Today is it. The last Friday I got to sleep in before heading back to work. I am sad, but not that sad.

Hugh and I have headed into our respective schools every day this week. We have been putting in shorter days (about 9 am to 3 pm) and heading out for lunch a few of the days. It has been a great way to get back to into the swing of things. I have got a ton of work accomplished and feel really good. I really do like a routine. And for whatever reason I wasn't able to get into one this summer. It is nice to be back in a bit of a groove. Today we decided that we weren't going to go in to work. We have some BIG plans for the weekend and we wanted to get started on them (will post about it next week!).

Right now I am enjoying a coffee (GASP. I know. Shouldn't be drinking because of my acid reflux. But seriously, it is my LAST Friday off. I needed a treat.) and some peanut butter toast*. A deadly combination as far as I am concerned. I am then going to summon my inner super mom and spring into "Let's have the best last weekend possible before heading back to school" mode.

The weather doesn't look that great for tomorrow, but I am not going to let it get me down. We will have fun this weekend - even if I have to turn into a Fun Dictator (because demanding that people have fun creates oodles of it).

To all my colleagues out there - Have a wonderful last weekend of summer!

*I despise the new Kraft Peanut Butter Jars. I'm not the only one. See what Kraft said to a fellow complainer HERE.

p.s. Calder and I tied our DLTBHTF world record with 34 hits last night.


  1. <3 Enjoy it! I can't wait to see what you, as fun police, create for the weekend! :) :)

    ps...nicely done ;)

What I'm wearing

After my Simons' flop, I recently picked up three pairs of jegging capris at Costco. I think they were about $16 each. I got them in grey (above), teal (also above), and white. I absolutely love them and have been wearing them like crazy. My favorite of the two outfits is the bottom one. The jean jacket is Mavi and I HIGHLY recommend it. In fact, I recently bought another. Exact same style, different wash. This jacket was recommended by both Deena and Christy, so you really can't go wrong. The scarf is one I picked up this spring (Gap). I heart orange and teal. Last week I mentioned trying to define my signature look and that bottom one pretty much encapsulates it. . .
And here it is again. LOVE this one too. Cardigan and scarf are recent purchases along with the grey tee (Old Navy). Jeans are old (American Eagle) and shoes are old (Nine West). I can't wait to recreate this one!
These. Jeans. (Gap). I can't get enough of them. I wore them to professional development o…

Calder Update

Has Calder ever gotten into sports the last couple of months!?! Below he is at a Rush lacrosse game with Hugh and his buddy Kohen. Calder has been watching baseball, lacrosse, and now the hockey playoffs like crazy. In fact, he has stopped asking to watch any of his "shows". He just wants to watch sports. Oh. . . and add NASCAR to that list. Our boy loves his cars. I don't think that will ever change!

Here is Calder's funniest shark tooth yet. His permanent tooth pushed through in front of his baby tooth!  It was like this for weeks. No gap toothed grin for this boy! Below is the day it fell out!
Calder is doing so well in school. His teacher speaks of what a great student he is. Hearing her say these things actually makes me wish he used a few more manners and a bit more kindness at home! LOL. But, if he is going to be on his best behavior somewhere, I want it to be when we aren't around. Although it was great to hear about Calder's learning successes at pa…


All of Hugh's hockey buddies call him "Hammy".

Hugh has been calling Calder "Ham" for a long time. I can't even remember when it started.

Calder started calling Boone "Bean" when he first came home from the hospital. That evolved into "Boone Dog", "The Dog", and just simply, "Dog".  Boone is not a fan of nicknames. Often after we use one of his he will say, "I not Da Dog, I just Boone." Hilarious.

Boone has called Lawson "Dawsie" from about month two. (He called her "baby" for the first two months.) Last week Boone called her Lawson for the first time ever. It took a long time for him to put the "L" on Lawson. He would repeat after us "La La La La, Dawsie". He has said "Lawson" twice since the momentous occasion last week, but I think he got too much attention for using it and has moved back to "Dawsie". "Dawsie" likely isn't going any…
