Blast from the Past Weekend!

We had a really busy weekend!  I had Friday off and Addison and I had our Mommy/Daughter Date (post to come later)...we did Monster Mayhem and Chick Fil A!  We also spent $450 on a broken air conditioner only for it to cool down enough on Saturday that we had to turn on the heat :(

Saturday did not start well...Addison had gymnastics class and then we were headed straight to a church fall festival and carnival.  BUT...during gymnastics class, she was NOT listening to the instructor so we pulled her out of class to try and straighten her up and told her if she didn't go back in and listen that we weren't going to the carnival.  She walked back in and threw herself on the floor screaming and kicking- needless to say we jerked her out of there and left with her kicking and fighting all the way to the car where she cried the entire way home saying "I want to go to the carnival."

Are anyone else's kiddos going through this phase?  I swear I love my child but she tests me every single day.  She has always been a pretty good kiddo but lately we battle about everything especially her following directions.  The hubs and I decided after the embarrassing meltdown we were only going to tell her once to do something before implementing a consequence-no more second chances.

Saturday night we headed to a Couple's Baby Shower!  It was for a high school friend of mine and it was literally like a high school reunion.  We had a great time catching up with old friends and letting all our kiddos play together.  And I found out that some of my friends found my blog and are reading it...Hi Erica and Catherine!

I have spent all day Sunday in my PJ's which are my favorite kind of days.  We watched movies, painted our finger nails, made a Halloween Countdown Treat Board, did laundry (which I swear I'm going to get done before Sunday at 8:00 pm and never do) and made Sunday dinner.  Here is Addison's Halloween Countdown.

After making her Spooky Tutu last weekend she woke up on Monday asking to go "Trick or Treating."  She is so excited this year!  I thought it would be fun to do a Halloween Countdown Treat Board.  She and I made this together and I put little treats in each little pouch for her to open each day.  Can you see the excitement on her face when she got a new tattoo?

And Sunday dinner was amazing!  I made Jalapeno Popper Chicken from this Pin which I've been meaning to make for a long time.  It did not disappoint ..yum-o!  And we scarfed it so fast I didn't get a picture of it - but it was really good.

I'm not ready to go back to work tomorrow...I swear even over long weekends I never accomplish everything I want to get done.

Pin It


  1. Emily spent a majority of Friday kicking, screaming, and crying on the floor. It was a LONG evening with her. We also skipped out on a Fall Festival because of her behavior. I feel your pain!

  2. Oh mine doesn't listen either, it's like talking to myself! Ugh. I think no second chances is a good idea, usually I'm bribing her to do something which is annoying. I hate rationalizing with a toddler :)

  3. Oh yes my Elle tests me every.single.day. I loved your Funday Sunday - pj Sundays are the best.
