MoNdAaAaaY! Link Up!

Hey Everyone! 
I had the hardest time getting up for work today. My break was AHHHMAZING!
I have to be honest with you, If I didn't take pictures of nearly EVERYTHING, I wouldn't remember anything!

lets link up!

Wednesday I started my weekend by taking off at noon, and getting my nails done.
Don't mind if I do...

After leaving the nail shop I was in a hurry to get home to see my littles.. According to the Waterloo PD I was in too big of a hurry.
51 in a 30.
I got lucky!

That night I headed out with my sister Amber to Guns and Hoses.
We had a great time! Ended up getting all inclusive seats, and enjoyed watching people beat the crap out of each other.
I definitely think the female fighters were more aggressive than the guys!

Even my sisser surprised me with these adorable earrings!
and I found the PERFECT necklace to match them.. and i somehow lost it that night :(

 Thursday we spent the day with family.
I don't think I took any pictures Thursday. 
Shocking, I know.
And Friday we did a lot of this.
We were exhausted.

Saturday the kids and I were up bright & early. Did a little lot of shopping with my mom.
Landon had some money saved up and he was over the moon excited to pick out a toy and pay for it himself.

And I managed to hide presents in my moms cart and distract him enough while I was checking out!
It wasn't easy. I don't recommend it. haha
Santa is broke. and still not done.
I'm glad I start early enough that I have a couple paydays for other things before Christmas.
This was the first year we did a Christmas club. 
Ever heard of it? If not. DO IT NEXT YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We set up a separate account with our bank that automatically took money out of every check. 
Money I didn't even realize I was losing. 
Out of sight, out of mind. 
And Bam! Over $500 to withdraw for shopping!
Happy Momma!

Saturday night the hubs and I had a sitter. Date night! Again, Happy Momma!
I got ready with L&L right by my side.
Lay LOVES playing in my make up!

We went to dinner, did a little more Christmas shopping and met up with friends for drinks.

It was one of the best nights out we have had in a long time!
I laughed so much my stomach hurt!

 Sunday we introduced L&L to our new little member of our family.
Landon named her Rosie. 
You know, Caillou's sister.... 
Anyways. Landon thoguht it was silly at first. He kept telling us it was just a toy. I had to explain to him what magic is and also compared Rosie to Buzz and Woody... He started to get it then.
And he loved the story. We read it twice yesterday. and He wanted to read it again before bed.
Rosie left L&L a little surprise today.
Busted making snow angels.

So excited to move Rosie every night when he goes to sleep! 
Stay tuned daily to see what Rosie is up to!

Tonight we are putting our Christmas PJ's on and heading to Santa's Magical Kingdom!!
Landon LOVED it last year, but doesn't remember going.
Dane asked him this morning if he wanted to go and see Santa's Christmas lights?
His response was: At home depot???
Bahahah. No buddy, Not at home depot.

Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving!!!

I lovie your date night pic w/your hubby! So cute and your smile is beautiful <3

Must be a girl thing... Victoria LOVES playing in my makeup, brushing her teeth with me and when I blow dry my hair, she wants me to do hers too! When I put lip gloss on, she's right there looking at me like "where's mine??" so I put the cap on and act like she gets some too. Then she walks around the house giving kisses. MELT MY HEART!!!

Victoria loves the Christmas decorations at Lowes, especially the giant blow up Mickey. We stand there for what seems like an eternity saying hi and waving. So funny! The girl loves her some Mickey and Minnie!!!

Love, love, love your date night shirt. Where did you get it???

Keep smiling, XOXO
