Happy Friday! I don’t know about you but I’m doing a happy dance and ready for the weekend. Here are some favorites from the week! Thanks, Heather, for the Friday Favorites.
Gilmore Girls and Mom Time:
I’ve been stoked for Gilmore Girls for a while, but my mom and my schedule didn’t line up last week to watch it. I headed over after A woke up on Wednesday and while she napped over there, we watched the first episode! I love good television shows, ya know? Just lighthearted and fun. So far I’m a fan and can’t wait to watch the rest.
Battery Operated sound Machines:
Sort of a funny one, right? Hear me out. Tuesday night after Aaron got home, our lights flickered off and on twice, and then went completely out. Apparently two transformers blew up the road and a car hit a pole that caused wires to come down. We’ve lost power (or had it go off and on) during the night before and it’s caused Annabelle to wake up screaming because her sound machine went off and it was super quiet! We got a new one a few months ago and it has batteries, too, (hallelejah!) so it didn’t miss a beat And well, the power stayed off, it was so dark, so we went to Subway for dinner and it was delicious.
I feel like I’ve been getting in a morning groove and it’s been so good for me. Aaron’s alarm goes off at 5:45, and I set mine for 5:55. By 6, we’re both up and as he gets ready for work, I’m working out (currently finishing up the 21 day fix) and starting off my day in a great way. I don’t know why it just feels different now, but it’s just working and I’m excited about it. I have some time to read blogs, get ready for the day, and have some tea before A wakes up, too.
Still teaching Wednesday nights, though!
Part Time Job:
I truly love having a job that I can work part time at and have two days off a week with Annabelle. I love seeing her personality develop and have fun all the time. She is such a crazy one and makes me smile from the time she wakes up until she goes to bed. Of course things are challenging and she has a temper sometimes, but I love having more than the weekend with her.
I secretly love that Emily is on maternity leave because I get to not only see her at least weekly but snuggle up on her little Bennett! She came over yesterday and by the end of their visit, Annabelle had given Bennett a kiss on his head. I’ll take it! He’s just too sweet.

I’m off to finish up a day of work, pick up Annabelle from my parents since Aaron was painting the cabinets today, and maybe get out Christmas tree! It’s definitely getting picked this weekend!
