The (blessed) end of a season

O.M.G.You guys. This weekend marked the end of ALL THE F-ING THINGS. For the last three months, our lives have been consumed by sportsball and now it's OVER. I, of course, love all the benefits of youth sports but oh my goodness am I ready to not spend my Saturdays feeling my soul wither in a camp chair for 8+ hours. And did I ever see the season close with a bang. Because it's No-School November, everyone but me has a four day weekend. In addition to all the last games/championship games/end of season whathaveyou, I stopped at Old Navy for the Friends and Family sale 
Think I'm craving Fall over here in my 82 degree November?
Gearing up for hour one million of sports for the day. Eli's team was in the championship and blew it out of the water. 
The girls found my Christmas present stash, so Yay for new legoes on a random Sunday! And it was obviously a slam dunk gift because she's been playing with this set for the last two days now

Soccer cupcake!

Last pep talk of the year

I cancelled our instacart membership so I had to actually GO to Costco to get dogfood. Pro tip: If you want to control your Costco spending, take two kids and the commuter car. I mean, the trip was still a million dollars, but I did put back the flat of black beans...

We also stopped by Sephora to pick up my birthday gift (just in the nick of time!) and to play with the girls' favorite palette testers

I spent a birthday gift card and I'm really, really happy with my choices. One of these damn kids is going to read Harry Potter if it kills me.
And for the fourth (I think?) year in a row, we joined the Scouts to put up flags at the cemetary before sunrise. This is one of my favorite annual traditions and I'm always so impressed by the kids. This year I flew solo and we were all dressed and out the door by 5:00 am with no screaming. It was a Veteran's Day miracle (that obvs didn't last through the day but I'll take the win where I can). 

I'm tired just re-writing all of that. Next weekend, I don't HAVE to do jack shit and the potential is making me giddy. I may go to a murder con at the library. Or start painting the house. Or sitting on my butt catching up on all the Netflix I've been missing. The possibilities are endless! 


  1. We are also at a lull, and it is wonderful.

    But! It's hockey season, so I my free weekends are slipping awaaaaaay.

    Love the Lego stash find-- I don't know what I would do if the kids found their stuff. Probably not be as cool as you.

  2. I just have to know... are you one of those loud cheering moms? Like when E makes a good play are you cheering loud enough for him to hear you on the field? curious because .... I totally AM that mom!!!!
