herbs & spices cross stitch

I’m on my own with the kids until Sunday evening! I didn’t exactly plan it this way, but it worked out so that we have lots of stuff to do to fill the time. I’m hoping it’ll keep the tantrums to a minimum. Here’s what we have going on.

Friday afternoon/evening

  • Go for a run before picking up kids (maybe)
  • Meal plan – I usually do this on Saturday but since David’s not around to do the shopping & we’re busy Sunday I want to shop a day early
  • Dinner at Mom & Dad’s house; hopefully do some work on Liam’s stocking while we’re there, and also “shop” their house. My mom has a bunch of old furniture, frames, and other treasures that she’s not currently using and I want to see what I can repurpose. (And check out the awesome framed cross stitch at the top of this post that she found for me! I love it.)


  • Weekly chores – laundry, floors, plant care, spot cleaning counters, tables, & bathrooms
  • Take Liam’s monthly photos
  • Drop Liam off with David’s mom so Meredith & I can run errands which are…
  • Going to Joann’s to pick up some quilt batting and possibly a gift for a kids’ birthday party
  • Target to check out the blenders
  • Grocery store
  • Visiting a friend to check out some natural self care products she is selling
  • Drop Meredith with David’s mom so they can go visit Pappy in the nursing home, probably take Liam back
  • Host my whole family for dinner – a belated Mother’s Day gathering. My dad is grilling!


  • Church
  • Birthday party for my pseudo-niece at The Pink Pokka Dot. It’s a mermaid tea party – going to be soooo adorable.
  • David comes home!
  • Church small group for dinner

It’s a lot of stuff but I’m really excited about most of it! What do you have going on this weekend?

    Going to a birthday party tonight (the grown-up kind) and church on Sunday and that’s it! Hit me up if you need reinforcement this weekend!

    Please post pictures of the mermaid themed tea party. Sounds ADORABLE.

    This weekend is a friend’s 30th and her husband has lots of surprises planned so tonight and tomorrow I’ll be busy with that. I’m hoping to get up early tomorrow to fit in a long workout and then Sunday may be a family day… and fingers crossed we make it to church this week, too. I’ve missed the last two weekends and it feels weird. As fun as all of this is going to be, I’m feeling a bit introverted and really would like to read and relax and have a spontaneous date with my husband! Sometimes being 30 makes me lame.

    I know you don’t know me, but I’ve read your blog since before Meredith was born so I kind of feel like I do know you and I’ve ALWAYS been amazed at how much you’re able to get done (especially while working a full time job!)! Amazing! Happy weekend!

    Online friends are real friends though! :) It’s such a compliment that you’ve been reading for so long, thank you! As far as getting stuff done, I feel like I’m ironically more productive when I’m working and busy. I think because then I’m forced to nail down my routines and get in a groove!
