Life as a SAHM- Weekend Edition

Sometimes it feels like I have two kids in the house. ;) Three if you count our dog. Over the weekend my husband picked up his pre-order of the PlayStation 4, an early birthday gift from his parents. He's been talking my ear off about the game system for weeks and about all the new games coming out for it. Needless to say, he was VERY excited Friday morning and spent pretty much the entire day on the couch. We played as a "family" with Miss A pausing to stop and stare at the screen and me giggling any time I made it to another level in this cute spaceship shooting game.

While the hubby played, I made us a huge salad with a hard boiled egg, bacon, tomatoes, chicken, cheese, and croutons. I love having a big salad for lunch! Miss A picked into the bowl and grabbed a piece of lettuce, which she took a bite of, decided she didn't like it, and put it back into the bowl. :) 

The two of us went outside a lot, enjoying the sudden spike in warm temperatures. She is trying to say the word "outside" and it's the cutest thing I've ever heard. That and the word "up". I absolutely love it!

Her favorite thing to do outside is pick up and pull off leaves. She also likes being in the front yard, not the back, and walking into the street! We live in a cul de sac, so it's very safe, but I do wish she'd spend more time in the backyard!

On Sunday I told the hubby we had to get out of the house and use our legs. Especially him! We stopped at Starbucks to take advantage of the bogo holiday drinks and I took an obligatory his and hers coffee picture. Our first red cups of the season. I got a peppermint mocha and it was like Christmas in a cup. Seriously! I think I'm going to have an addiction problem.

We're still dealing with a serious case of mommy-itis. Pick me up, hold me, let me eat on your lap, etc, etc. It is very cute and sweet, but sometimes mommy needs a break!

To end the weekend, I made the most delicious pot roast ever. I've never had a pot roast this good before. We were eating in silence, enjoying it, until Miss A started begging for more! Be on the lookout for the recipe, coming soon. 

How was your weekend? I'm getting ready to finalize my Thanksgiving menu this week and create a shopping list! I'm so excited to have my parents here next week. How will you be spending the holiday? Oh, and, in case you haven't entered yet, my giveaway is still going on, you have two days left to enter!
