Marvelous in My Monday #MIMM
How was your weekend? Mine was busy, but fun.
Started off Friday really with a trip with the three kids to the big bulk store to do our monthly stock up. It was rainy and gross after I picked G up from school so rather than deal with three kids bored hanging around indoors I kept driving!
My kids love to buy food – especially at the big bulk store because SAMPLES! I can guarantee they won’t fuss while we fill the cart. Plus, we get a lot of their favorite snacks!
Saturday was an early day with dance at 8:30. Just a few more classes before the recital. We had to miss soccer again – blah! Last week was a rain out because the field was super wet after a week of rain and this week the game was at the same time as dance. Can’t be in two places at once! Dance rules right now as we are down to the wire. After dance we shot over to the dance shop to grab recital tights! Next up I have to start practicing “the bun” as this is critical to the overall look. Luckily the dance studio has a youtube tutorial for all lengths and styles of hair. Oh, and I’ll probably be buying old school Aqua Net hairspray for total frozen hair hold.
The rest of Saturday we hung out in the yard because the weather was perfect! I finally got around to building this 4 wheel ATV toy that had been sitting in our garage for probably a year! Yikes. The girls love it! Much faster than the Barbie Jeep. These kids and their fancy ride on toys – I had a Smurf big wheel with manual pedaling! LOL
We got Val her own bike – G has one with training wheels (she is itching to get them off) and Val still had a tricycle that was a bit small. She is loving her fancy new Hello Kitty bike!
I made a yummy pasta this week! Inspiration from another fab Mama. I sauteed kale in olive oil in garlic, added a drained/rinsed can of garbanzo beans and chopped cherry tomatoes – cooked for a few minutes and seasoned with salt and pepper – boiled some pasta and tossed it all together with more salt, pepper, some pasta cooking water and a bit more olive oil and CHEESE! OMG delicious! Ready in 15 minutes!
Went awesome with my wine!
Sunday it was super cold and windy – blah! We took a little trip to visit some family and took the kids to Toys R Us for a little treat. Every go there with three kids? Try it! LOL
That concludes my rant for Marvelous in My Monday.
Hope you have a fabulous week! XO
