This week was my first full week back to school. Needless to say I was (and still am) EXHAUSTED. I went to bed each night no later than 9:30. Many things were neglected this week around the house, so today I have been working hard to get everything back in order. I will get it all done by the end of the day and hopefully I can sleep well tonight knowing my house is somewhat clean. (Just don't look behind things, under things or on top of things!)
Friday night we went to our usual Friday night Mexican spot for dinner and then I went with some girlfriends to a local consignment sale. I got some cute stuff for the boy and a few things for my classroom after waiting in line for close to an hour to pay. I enjoyed it though and it made me excited for our MOPS group consignment sale that is coming up next month (on my birthday!)
Stuart starts his new job tomorrow so yesterday we went outlet shopping! He has worn the same thing to work, everyday for the past 7 years. He was excited to buy new clothes so the three of us went to the new outlet mall in Cincinnati. I was impressed and LOVED that they had a LOFT outlet. We hit up a few of our favorites, did some small damage at Banana Republic among a few others and we were in and out in two and a half hours. I got some really cute things for fall and Stuart will be quite the sharp looking employee at the new office!
Last night I spent the evening with some girlfriends from college. My friend Alison had a girl's night/sleepover at her house. Everyone brought yummy treats and we ate, chatted and enjoyed the night. It was great to see everyone I loved the girly adult conversations we shared! (thanks ladies!)
So today, like I said I have been cleaning this house! I spent a while in Clark's room this morning going through tubs of clothes. I put away stuff he has outgrown, pulled out stuff I have been buying for fall to assess what is still needed and what I need to stop buying (jackets- the kid might have a different jacket for everyday of fall!). While I was in there I decided it was time to get rid of the changing table! He is getting to big to hoist up there and I have been dying to decorate his dresser with something other than diapers, so I got rid of the changing pad. I spent WAYYYY to long arranging and rearranging primary colored nick-knacks on his dressers until I was finally satisfied with the outcome. It is starting to look too much like a big boy room in there!
I have dusted the entire house, windexed, cloroxed, Mr. Cleaned, mopped and vacuumed. However, I might have had a little help in that area!!
This guy was saying a whole lot of "Mommy, I hep you?".
