Who remembers this scene from Friends?
Well at 5:30 this morning this pretty much sums up how I was feeling. I can't for the life of me figure out why smoke detector batteries only go dead and these things start chirping during the night. I mean seriously, have you ever had one do it during the day???
Then you're up looking in every cabinet and drawer in your house for a blasted 9V battery.
Now back to Monday...
How many of you started making the Christmas party circuit this weekend? We had Kent's work party on Saturday which took most of the day, but more about that later.
I'm going to start my "weekend review" by backing up a little to Friday. I got to have a little fun babysitting two of the cutest little guys.
Hello, my names is James and I love fruit snacks and watching Paw Patrol.
James and I spent a lot of time playing the Oreo memory game and watching Paw Patrol. He is the cutest, funniest and sweetest little guy. He's warm and energetic and just a joy.
This is baby Hudson and I got to enjoy some sweet snuggles with him. It's been a while since I've had the opportunity to do that with a little one and there's just nothing like it.💙
I've been fancying up my coffee a little this week. I'm not a black coffee drinker.😖 I like a flavored creamer in my coffee and usually you'll find me using Hazelnut. A while back I picked up some Pumpkin Spice creamer and so on this particular morning I used that, added a splash of caramel syrup, topped with whipped cream and a drizzle of caramel.
I mentioned Kent and I had his work party. It was about 45 minutes away (on a good day), but Saturday it took about an hour and a half to get to the restaurant where it was taking place because it was pouring rain and traffic was AWFUL!
Once we got there though it we were able to relax and enjoy ourselves. We had 2 other couples we were sitting with and found lots of things to talk and laugh about.
Since it's a party that takes place during the day the dress is not as dressy as an evening party. I wore my black pants, cold shoulder sweater, lace up shoes, and my current favorite Kendra Scott necklace and matching earrings.
Sunday afternoon as we were running around it was a chilly California afternoon and nothing goes better with that than a red cup filled with a skinny Peppermint Mocha. Can someone please tell me why coffee somehow tastes better in a red cup?
Time to get to work today and get some things done. Benny and Katie get home Wednesday so I don't have to tell you how happy that makes me.
Happy Monday my friends!
