This week has been particularly great for an unexpected reason. Monday morning, Soren woke me up at 6:30 to see if I wanted to work out with him. I was in the deepest of deep sleep and did not budge. That is until he whisper-shouted, "I need help, Kilee!" I stumbled out of bed to find him trying to drag our new elliptical down the stairs - on his own - without taking it apart. We both struggled and maneuvered it downstairs, but I swear I was still asleep. I was certainly in no condition to be moving a heavy object - much worse than intoxicated or on drugs. I was literally sleep walking.
But once we got it down there and I perked up a bit, we had an awesome morning. Soren and I love to watch The Bachelor together, but haven't been able to find time to start this new season. Every morning from 6:45-7:30, we have been working out together while watching part of the recent episodes. I definitely have not been working up a sweat everyday, but just being together, talking, stretching, and moving before the kids wake up has been the best part of my week. Worth dragging myself out of bed for for sure.
Easton snuck down to find us one morning in his pjs and snow boots. He was barely awake and I was cracking up at his outfit. Kids are hilarious.
What is not hilarious, but IS awesome is this guy! Knox has been sleeping through the night this week and I am over the moon about it. Every baby is so different so I can't say what really worked. He just kind of did it himself. Just one more reason to love this happy baby.
Kesler and I snuck off to the doughnut store during Easton's preschool this week. I found out yesterday that it is almost time to register Easton for kindergarten, and the anxiety is already setting in. I'm not ready for him to start school, and I know it will be even harder for Kesler to have Easton gone all day everyday. Ugh - I can't even type about it anymore. Moving on.
Our wild cats caused a stir this week. I was feeding the boys dinner while Soren worked late and felt something brush across my foot. I looked down expecting to see the cats, but instead saw a giant, furry mouse on steroids running under my chair. It was a surprise to say the least. When did they bring it in? How? I have no idea, but Soxie was content to play with it while it scurried around our kitchen. I grabbed a plastic mixing bowl and a book and scooped the poor giant thing up before they could kill it. The rodent got tossed outside and the cats went off to find it.
After Sunday dinner, we went out on a walk because it was 60 degrees!! Of course now it is back down to 12 degrees, but what a wonderful relief that warm day was. It felt amazing to get outside without a coat!
One more high for the week? Monday was not only a holiday, but it was 50% off day at Savers. I was able to go thrift for an hour and, despite having a baby with me, found some great stuff.
I am the queen of shopping ahead, so some of these skirts are definitely feeling like spring, but I can't wait to wear the gray wool skirt and my new fur collars. Believe me, fur isn't going anywhere, so if you find some while thrifting or on sale, scoop it up. You will be glad when fall and winter roll around again!
I hope you had a great week! Did you have any great thrifting finds this week? What was the best part of your week?
