What I Did During My Time Off…

As you know, I took a hiatus for the past week. It was a wonderful week of doing whatever I wanted without worrying about social media, blogging, followers, likes, views, blah, blah, blah. But starting next week I will be back with new content and an improved attitude! So what did R and I do while we were AFK? (For those of you that don’t know that one it means away from keyboard… got that from my husband’s gamer days. haha!)

After story time at the library, we stopped to see great grandma and (after this nap) she took us out to eat!

We entered the Gerber Photo Contest with this picture (and later this month I will shamelessly be begging for your vote because the money would be an amazing start to her college fund and because I truly think she is a Gerber Baby).

I took out the last of the baby gear from her room (jumperoo) and started working on a rail cover for her crib (oh, and that first top tooth finally poked through).

We played (and ate… and slept) at grandma’s house… she also was gifted grandpa’s old iPod touch for her “phone” because she is constantly trying to steal cell phones!

We played outside and found a yellow leaf from the tulip tree.

We watched daddy fly his drone. 


We learned to play peek-a-boo. (There’s no sound because I can’t stand the sound of my voice on film, anyone else feel that way or is it just me?)

I got a t-shirt to promote my blog. (If I were selling them would anyone be interested? Considering doing so once I purchase a domain name…)

I washed ALL the toys, the toy bin, and deep cleaned the house (because it ALWAYS needs to be cleaned).

We attempted painting in a ziplock bag… it was semi-successful.

Tried out her new wheels… She couldn’t reach the floor yet but loved when mommy pushed her!

We took a hayride and picked out a pumpkin at the pumpkin patch.

Also, I caught up on laundry & washed more cloth diapers than I care to say, we read books, sang songs, cuddled lots, watched Hap Palmer and Veggietales videos on YouTube, played with the dogs & the cats, and lots of other things!

I am looking forward to my new blog post next week and am hoping the measures I’m planning to take to lighten my load  (including one post per week) will give me more time to be a wife and mother without compromising the quality of my blogging and social media.
