Weekend Wrap Wednesday ~ Fun Things I've learned

It was a easier weekend here, just busy at home with the kids. You know I think I rather have the weekends when I'm running from party to party. That way the kids have fun, yup that is the only thing I'm thinking about ... LOL It has nothing to do with a little mom adult time and a place that my kids aren't screaming at home :).
So of course this weekend Caden has this on his kneck and of course I'm grabbing my car keys think I must run to the nearest doctors office he has to have some rare disease! Then I happen to walk by his room to find what the red is from!
Insert head slap mom red juice!

Lesson #1 - Stop freaking out and do a little research first!
Guess what it's volunteer time again!
275 newsletter, Thankfully 2 days and one me
Cole was my helper again and did about 100 labels!
Oh yes plus had to show off the punk rock hair for Church Sunday!
No clue but hey had to work it!
Lesson #2 Crazy Hair can work and 3 hours on couch folding newsletter makes back HURT!
YIPEE my bosses are the most amazing people in the world!
Check out what they sent me to use for work.
Yup check out my new work station AKA Couch and tomorrow is the other comfy chair!
Lesson #3 Couch again not best idea for all day for your BACK!
Oh crap loose weight woman stop complaining!
Yeah Rick cleaned up the front yard
Kick oh I mean let the kids play soccer in front yard!
Lesson #4 always have 2 soccer balls, it won't stop the fighting but it keeps it to a dull roar!
Caden will do anything to make sure brother can't either find or use the item
Yup the new bins I bought He made a bed!
And when brother starts annoying you hide his cars in mom dishes!
Lesson #5 cabinet under stove not a good place to hide my treats, Caden knows this hiding spot too!
Cleaned out Caden Clothes
I met an amazing lady on Craigslist, she bought a swing from me 2 years ago.
Ever since then she buys Caden's clothes!
Heck she gets a deal $2 a item (cheap as Value Village)
and I get to clean up
Lesson #6 Why did you wait until mid Jan to go threw these?
Lesson #7 Sleep is over-rated right? I'm trying to learn this one!

Plus I made a really cool cookie recipe that I posted Sunday and wanted to make sure you got it in case you missed it this weekend.

Thank you Lisette Fancy Frugalista! for this amazing recipe and don't forget to pick up some Tippy Earl Grey tea so you can make these amazing cookies and of course pour a cup of tea to go with it!


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons loose Tippy Earl Grey tea
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, room temperature


In a food processor, pulse together the flour, tea, and salt, until the tea is just spotted throughout the flour. Add the confectioners' sugar, vanilla, and butter. Pulse together just until a dough is formed. Place dough on a sheet of plastic wrap, and roll into a log, about 2 1/2-inches in diameter. Tightly twist each end of wrap, and chill in refrigerator for 30 minutes.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Slice the log into 1/3-inch thick disks. Place on parchment or silpat lined baking sheets, 2 inches apart (2 probably needed depending on size of sheets). Bake until the edges are just brown, about 12 minutes. Let cool on sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer to wire racks and cool to room temperature.

Pour yourself a cup of Tippy Earl Grey tea and eat a cookie!


  1. I love the grin as he's in the container!

    I'm not sure about those cookies. I like tea, but not earl grey.

  2. Look at you balancing that cookie on the edge of your teacup....aren't you talented!!!!

    It's so fun to find little suprises in the kitchen cabinet...this morning I found a certain toddler's left shoe and a hair barrett...

  3. Sounds busy as usual. I want a lap top too, luck you!

  4. that is just the CUTEST pic of him in that container.. couldn't you just eat him on up!!!

  5. Isn't it easy to freak out, it happens so fast. At least we can laugh about some of the freak outs!
    Love the hair and you look so pretty in pink! Love the new computer. Yard looks awesome, two balls is a great idea. Love the bed he made and the toys in the cabinet. Boys will be boys!!!

  6. Oh my god your little man's "Juice Disease" cracked me up! But it does look like blood and a rash to me too!

    Love your crazy hair!

  7. Wow what a fun weekend. Love the hair.. I thought the juice story was pretty funny. Something I would so do. My little one stores her letters in the same spot at my house. Have a great day.

  8. You busy girl you...
    Cute hair! I agree, you look good in pink.
    I have the glass bowls in the same colander in my cabinet and I bet there have been cars in there too from time to time. ;-)

  9. Adorable container pics. And that recipe? Shazam! I want to try it out.

    Your grass is the perfect color of green. Mine is now brown. Ergo, I am quite envious.

  10. ROFL at the juice on the neck and you freaking out! LOL!!
    Caden is a smart kid, hiding brother's cars in the cupboard!! LOL!
    Nice laptop!! Lucky girl!

  11. Those are some goo lessons learned. I want a laptop! But I guess you use yours for work. ah, I still want one. :-)

  12. Lately I'd like a weekend where I didn't have to go anywhere, but I understand being stuck inside with the husband and kids-have that ALL week, so it's nice to do something different on the weekends! The best would to have a nice mixture of both. :-)

    I think I would have flipped about Caden too-that's so funny it was just juice-LOL!

    How exciting to have a new laptop to use! Can I work for those people too?! ;-)

  13. I see cookies LOL
    Kiddos are too cute!
    Awesome laptop girlie :)
