Olympic Weekend

February 10, 2014

Valentine's Day Party Printables

I’m not going to lie to you…it’s been a rough couple of weeks. It has been hard to get out of this funk. I’m sure the weather has a lot to do with it, plus the boys have been home (a lot!) and keeping me extra busy, and I just can’t seem to catch a break. I’m also sure this is a bad case of cabin fever. Hours go by without me speaking to another adult. I speak to strangers on the parking lot at Target to justify why I’m out on the black ice pushing 2 little boys in a cart! We just have to get out!!

While stuck inside, we have been watching the Olympics but the athlete’s stories make me cry! I’m an emotional wreck. Although it’s been fun and the boys get a lot of lessons on perseverance and determination by just watching! It’s also cute to see them make skis out of cardboard tissue boxes and their light sabers become the poles.

Hubby and I did enjoy excellent company this weekend and we laughed so much…always the best remedy to beat the winter blues. That and a lot of red wine!

Here are your weekend links!

Once again, we are thrilled to remind Diego about this!

So bored with my recipes! These might help.

How are you beating the winter blues? Please share! Have a great week!

    Aw Betty I hope this weekend is going much better! I was just telling my husband that we are spoiled with our weather because we’d go nuts if we were stuck inside with the kids lol. I can’t believe some of the stories you see on the news with the crazy storms!
