Documenting 10 pictures on the 10th day of the month. Here is a peek into our day!
I’m so thankful to my sweet hubby for hanging out with the kids on weekend mornings so that I could sleep in. I finally peeled my self out of bed and made breakfast. Breakfast was a bagel, cream cheese and hard boiled egg with coffee.
I unloaded the dishwasher and loaded it back again and went over to the couch and snuggled up to watch kids baking championship. We love this show!
I wrapped a few birthday gifts for the weekend. I love a fun pattern!
I started my least favorite household thing, laundry. Ugh!
I got dressed for the day and did my hair. My wet brush is a must to tame this beast. Plus my kids love theirs too
I popped over to Sarah’s room. She was playing with her water beads set.
Birthday party for Miss Aubrey. Her decor was the cutest!
Back home and in Pj’s. Hubby made dinner and we watched The Titan Games on the couch. After the kids went to bed, I passed out. I wasn’t feeling too well.
I’m linking up with Shay and Sheaffer for some random monthly fun.
What we’re eating this week…
While on the plane last week I came across a recipe for Fennel Citrus Roasted Chicken in a magazine. It was delish!
What I’m reminiscing about…
Spending 5 days with my family in Florida after my sister gave birth to her beautiful baby boy!
What I’m loving…
Jacob got back into gymnastics and I’m loving watching how much fun he is having.
What we’ve been up to…
It’s been super cold (low 30’s) and rainy. Sometimes J and I park outside of Sarah’s school and just watch movies in the car while it rains. We love the sound of rain and have fun getting cozy.
What I’m dreading…
The hot temperatures! I love winter!
What I’m working on…
Our Spring Break plans. Can’t to travel again!
What I’m excited about…
After a very long and exhausting 3 months Jacob’s preschool opened back up. Due to the Woolsey fires they had to do extensive renovations, which unfortunately took a little longer then expected. He’s so happy to be back at his “old school”. So thankful for his teachers and the sweet pictures they post online.
What I’m watching/reading…
Thanks to my new smart tv I’ve been watching a lot of new shows. Check out my Netflix & Chill post here. My current favorite is Riverdale.
What I’m listening to…
I’ve been listening to Podcasts lately. My favorites are LA Cicks with my friend Sarah, Weekly Dose of BS with the girls from Housewives of Dallas and Rachel Hollis’ Rise.
What I’m wearing…
My Ugg boots on repeat. Eek it’s so cold!
What I’m doing this weekend…
Hubby and I are going to do a lot of dividing and conquering this weekend. Sarah is going to do her first Girl Scout cookie booth and Jacob is going to a birthday party.
What I’m looking forward to next month…
Valentine’s Day with my sweethearts.
What else is new…
Now that Sarah is a Girl Scout she selling cookies in neighborhood. It’s been so fun and a great learning experience for Sarah.
Question of the month is: What’s your favorite family Valentine’s Day traditions?
We have a family dinner with a decorated dining room table, we send Valentine’s, send Cards For Hospitalized Kids and I make them cutesy lunches on Valentine’s Day.
Thanks to my new Smart TV in my bedroom, hubby and I have been watching a lot of Netflix lately. We’ve seen some really great shows and I thought it would be fun to share some of my/our current favorites and get a new ideas from you.
You was amazing!!! The suspense, the twists and turns! Loved every second of it. I’m also a huge Gossip Girl fan (hello early 2000) so seeing Penn Badgley in a starring role was lot’s of fun.
After all the suspense from You I needed something light. I stumbled upon Good Girls and quickly became obsessed. It’s about 3 mamas trying to help their families out. Their mishaps and family dynamics were hilarious. I highly recommended this show if you’re looking for something light and funny.
I’d like to consider myself an organized person, but after watching a season of Tidying Up I went through the house and made a call for donations pick up. It’s that good!
I’m so bummed I didn’t get to see Taylor Swift during her Reputation stadium tour so I was thrilled when I heard it was recorded and available on Netflix. Taylor is a great singer, but she’s an even better performer. This was fun to watch!
I love a good belly laugh, but I don’t find a lot of comedians funny. Sebastian Maniscalco is hilarious!!! And his Stay Hungry show was amazing! Complete belly laughs and even a few tears. Loved it!
We also watch shows on Amazon Prime so I made a separate section for those movies/shows.
Looking for a show you have to think a bit, then Homecoming is your show. It’s labeled as a physiological thriller, but it’s not scary. Just an edge of your seat kind of show. Without giving to much away, Julia Roberts plays a caseworker at a secret government facility where she starts therapy with a special soldier.
My friend, Beth told me about The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel show a couple days before my birthday. She simply said it’s a must see and I would love it. Guess what I did on my birthday weekend? Binged Mrs. Masiel and thoroughly enjoyed myself. She’s witty, quick, hilarious and a joy to watch. Can’t wait for season 3!!
What are you watching? Have any favorites we should check out? Please share below.
Last Spring hubby and I had an open weekend so we took the kids to Mt. Frazier to play in the snow. Got to love So Cal! One minute you are at Malibu beach and then the next your driving to the mountains to play with snow.
I spy snow covered mountains.
Two hours later we made it to the mountain. We suited up and hit the fresh powder.
I love the snow! The crisp air, the huge trees, the adventure.
We grabbed our sled and took turns going down the mountain.
Having fun with my girl!
While Jacob and I did a couple of snow angels, Sarah drew in the snow.
Do you want to build a snowman?
Thanks for the fun memories Mt. Fraizer! Until next time.
You know it’s time to blog about your adventures with kids when your friends ask you for fun things to do with their kids on the weekends. Even though I’ve blogged about each adventure separately, I thought a list with all of our favorites on one page would be more helpful. I’ll even update this list with upcoming adventures.
After breakfast one day my friend and I stumbled upon a cute little display. The lady inside hinted for us to come in, so we did!
We later learned that the sweet lady’s name is Vera and she is the owner of the shop. Vera runs an 8 minute “fix” using the Bemer technology to reach an improved state of health.
We were intrigued.
First, she asked us if we were having any pain in a particular spot. I said that my shoulders and neck were bothering me a bit so Vera gave me a B-Pad to put around my shoulders before we laid on our lounge chair.
Within a few seconds I got a hot sensation through my arms and a tingle in my back.
The tingle was electromagnetic signals through out my body. What this process does is oxygenates the body and increases the electro-magnetic energy of all the cells, it also improves the circulation and oxygenation of the tissues. Nutrient filled blood flows which in return rejuvenates the body. Your cells are responding by clearing the micro vascular system.
After our “fix” we were told we would see complete results in 15 -20 hours later.
I’m not one to believe in holistic approaches, but when I woke up the next day my shoulders and neck were no longer in pain! I mean what are the chances!!! No clue, but I came back to try it again.
What else does it do?
Reduces recovery time from injuries and surgery.
Reduces inflammation and joint pain.
Removes toxins and immune system discomfort.
Helps with stress and sleep.
Mamas with c-section scars recover quicker when using the Bemer method and some have even said that their scar was gone!
Athletes and Olympic medalists like, Tina Weirather, love it too! See what they have to say here.
Want to try it for yourself?! Contact Vera and mention Mama Chit Chat for your FREE 8 Minute Fix!
Every year we try and take the kiddos to see the snow. With snow capped mountains only a couple of hours away, its fun to go out and play with the snow for the day. This year we checked out the snow tubing at Mt Baldy.
All suited up and ready to go!
In the past we’ve taken our sled and just played in the snow. This time we bought passes ahead of time. Yes I knew there would be a skit lift, but I didn’t expect to sit in a wobbly wooden chair for 15 minutes above lot’s and lot’s of mountains. To say I was scared would be an understatement.
Sitting with my brave girl! So glad she didn’t inherit my fear of heights.
The boys were behind us. Between this height and watching hubby lift the bar gave me chills.
Up the mountain (finally!) and waiting for our time slot.
“Mommy, you should take a picture of me with my first snowball!”
Tip: Get here at least an hour before your time slot. This way you can park, ride the lifts, get in line and visit the the bathrooms.
It was our turn to go down the slopes. One kid was super excited and the other one was not interested one bit. Can you guess which one was the fan?
After a few tears, I took J to get a snack.
He spent the rest of our time on the slopes eating his snacks by the benches.
After a few snacks I convinced Jacob to try one more time. This time he was a happy camper!
Such a fun day snow tubing with the family!
We grabbed a late lunch, played with the snow some more and then headed back on the lifts.
