Worst blogger of the year award might just go to me. I have not been able to sit down and write once this week. I have less than three weeks of full time school left, after which I have 8 weeks of part time school and then I graduate! Let me tell you, working on your MBA while working full time, with a one year old, with a million other big things happening for our family makes for one tired mama. And one neglected blog. *slaps wrist* Sometimes, something’s gotta give, right? My favorites this week are simple, as shopping has not exactly made the priority list AT ALL lately, but I promise I have some exciting posts coming soon!
1. We sold our house
After being on the market for the summer, we finally received and accepted an offer on our house. I will have more details to share soon on what our plans are, where we will be living, and why we did things the way we did. For now, though, we are set to close next week (I cannot wait to close and have it be officially sold), and for the time being, will be living with my gracious, wonderful in-laws. Blessed to have them open their doors to us, and slightly terrified to have them open their doors to us 😉 All of their kids have moved out, and the entire downstairs is vacant, so we have a pretty good amount of personal space, so here is to hoping this fall and winter in cozy quarters goes smoothly!
2. Walking Baby
Finally, at 13.5 months, Jackson finally took the plunge and is walking all over the place. We decided his officially ‘walk date’ is last Sunday, September 20th. He literally just took off. And now he gets going so quickly he has a crazed look on his face because I don’t think he quite knows how to slow down or stop. So funny, and soooo precious. Is there anything sweeter than watching a babe figure out the whole walking thing?
3. Ice Cream Cake
You guys. I am a lover of Dairy Queen ice cream cake. How can you not be. It is absolutely delicious. But my mom makes homemade ice cream cake. And it received the ultimate validation when Mike requested it for his birthday this week. That man does not ask for much, and really isn’t a fan of asking things of others. So for him to ask for my mom’s ice cream cake said it all. Think DQ cake, with five times the fudge and oreo layer. It. is. so. good. *disclaimer: it is not so good for my waistline.
4. Pizza Delivery
So, even though we don’t close on our house until next week, we moved out last weekend so that we would have ample time to gradually get all of our ‘little’ stuff out, clean, etc. Last night for Mike’s birthday, the man of mine wanted his usual birthday dinner of take-out pizza (he makes things way too easy). Where we lived in our old/halfway sold house, there was one pizza place that would deliver. And we don’t like their pizza. So, being the pizza addicts that we are, we would make a solid 15 minute drive (each way!) into town at least once a week for pizza. But no more! Mike’s parents live within delivery range of our go-to pizza place, and so last night we enjoyed pizza that we didn’t have to drive to get. It’s the little things guys, for real.
5. This Sweater
I pinned this to Pinterest months ago, and received and e-mail this week that it was back in stock. You better believe I hopped online and ordered it immediately. I cannot wait to see what it looks like in person! One of the sizes is already sold out, go snag one up before it is gone again!
As always, linking up with these ladies today!
