A productive 3 day weekend

Having one extra day off can make all the difference in the world. I loved my three day weekend for MLK day, got to spend time with both of my boys one on one and just overall had a great time!  I also made a good dent in my 2017 goals - so win!

Friday M and I went on a date night - nothing special, just out to dinner and then went to Target, lol.  Love to do some shopping with helping hands.

Saturday we went to the LAX Children's Museum and got a membership for the year - I think it's going to be lots of fun watching little E explore.  He loved it so much and it was fun to have so much for him to get into and everything was at a good size for him :)

 Sunday I made good one one of my goals and finished a project I wanted to do last year, but never got around to it.  I made E a snowman shirt, using my Silhouette and fabric paint.  Minus the orange paint exploding and possibly ruining my sweatshirt, shirt, AND tank top (how it went through 3 layers of clothing is beyond me!) I'm really pleased with the results.

Monday, since it was icy and I wasn't leaving the house, we tried a new dish, baked ravioli.  I'm out of the blogging habit, so no pictures.  It was good, something different, and something I think we will make again, with a few tweaks to the recipe (less sauce, smaller pan, and more cheese!)

2017 goals

Hello again. Long time no see!
Life has been even crazier than in the past and I don't have time to blog (or create or cook/bake) like I'd like to. Most of all I miss the feeling of pride after being crafty, the satisfaction of having a tangible finished project, one that I made with my own hands.
So it's a new year, and once again I set goal, not resolutions. I tried to keep them SMART, lol.

My 2017 goals
- 12 (or 17) crafts completed
- 12 new meals for my family to try, we are really in a rut right now and need some new dinner ideas
- 5 date nights. Life gets busy and having an almost 17 month old takes almost all our time and attention, but sometimes we need to be just us two, hopefully this will be an easy goal to meet!
