Good morning friends! It’s a weird morning over here because there is no school for Friday parent-teacher conferences. And KK has been doing this thing where he wakes up at 430/5 but at some point goes back to sleep and then sleeps in really late. I think it has to do with getting in the last few teeth, but I’m currently waiting for him to wake up at 8 am. My kids do not wake up that late haha, so everything feels weird!
This weekend will be laid back as the kids are between sports, so nothing is scheduled for a few weeks. Probably use this time to hang out as a family and of course, and….. go through baby boxes! (I did another super long pregnancy update yesterday!) I figure do it now before it’s hot, and I’m too pregnant to want to do anything, haha. The weather is super nice here now, so we definitely have to take advantage of it. Next weekend is supposed to be in the eighties already!
WTE? Meal Plan
I added the delicious oat flour pizza crust/pizza onto this week’s WTE? Meal Plan! Meal Plan subscribers, it’s in your inbox!
We finally pulled the plug-and-go mirrors installed in the gym. I’m super weird and asked for this as my “push present.” haha I know most women want jewelry or other nice things. I want a giant mirror in the gym. It does make all the difference, though! We ended up reorganizing the gym a little bit before they came to install the mirror.
You can’t see it in the photo, but the bench is right behind me when taking these photos!
Two weekends ago, I got the opportunity to go to the Blessed is She Burn Retreat. I haven’t been able to attend a retreat since 2020, right before COVID started, so I was pretty pumped! I love their retreats, the speakers are amazing, and the split is always a nice amount of time to socialize or have to yourself and sessions. It’s really a nice balance! A few of the moms from my mom’s group at church came, so it was fun to hang out with them and get to know them a little better too!
And the best part, okay, not the best part but a pretty awesome bonus… free lattes. Speaking my love language, they even had decaf shots 🙂
Tosititos kindly sent me a sampler of their chips for the Super Bowl! I forgot how delicious pop chips are and have been munching on them all week!
This phone stand is by far the easiest, most convenient phone stand I’ve ever used. I mostly use it for IG videos, but I thought there could be a million reasons why someone would want a phone stand, and this one is so sturdy, convenient, and well-made!
So KK has this fun habit of turning over his cup and pouring water on the ground or table. He specifically will push the straw down in his cup and pour his milk out, or just turn over his water bottle and shake it until it leaks. When I accepted defeat that I couldn’t break him of the habit, I ordered two cups which have been AMAZING!
We use the Contigo kids spillproof stainless steel tumbler with a straw for juice or milk. It’s impressive. It has a three-part straw (the straw is plastic) that is built specifically to designed to keep kids from being able to spill. It’s honestly genius.
And we use the Contigo Kids Autospout Water Bottle, which has been equally as impressive at stopping our little man from spilling. Heads up, I remember I had one of these water bottles for KJ, and they were recalled due to the top plastic piece coming off the spout area. It seems like the issue has been fixed, and KK isn’t really a biter like KJ was, so I’m not as worried about it. But, something to know if you order it and keep an eye on it! I check it periodically to make sure it’s not loose and have told my sitter/family, who watches the kids to do the same!
See pregnancy update ha hah
