Finally Friday!

Yay for Friday! I have been exhausted this week, it has actualyl been a pretty busy week in our house...hubby was out of town this past weekend which made for a long weekend! I subbed twice this week (Wednesday and today) and had swimming on Thursday. I have gone to bed by 10 every night in hopes to get a little sleep before Bennett may or may not wake up. I've slept great at night and feel well rested in the morning, just not when it comes to 6pm. I've had a headache now for probably a week off and on. Since I am nursing, I can't really take any hard core stuff so I just pray it goes away with ibuprofen and Tylenol and mint and lavender oils. But I am so glad that it is Friday! 

1. Bennett is starting to hold his breath when he goes under water. 

We have been in swim class since he was 4.5 months old, and just recently (6 months) he started going under the water. I don't know what it was about this week, but everytime we went under the water he was able to hold his breath and not drink the water. I am excited for him to continue learning about the water in swim class. When it comes to bath, he thinks it's swim class and makes a huge mess. He loves his bath every night, and for that I am thankful. 

2. I love my new water bottle. 

I received my water bottle that holds the fruit in it this week in the mail! I took a picture of it and posted on Instagram, but here it is for those that don't follow me! 

3. I made a delicious sweet and sour skinny chicken yesterday. (Check it out here on Menu plan Monday) 

It was probably the easiest thing to do and super yummy. I suggest if you are trying to cut calories instead of the delicious chicken from your local Chinese, try making this one night! It won't dissapoint. 

4. I made steel cut oatmeal raisin cookies! (On the blog this week!) 

I only really buy steel cut oats, so when I decided to make oatmeal cookies yesterday I had to find a actual recipe for using steel cut oats. It was a great recipe, I will post this week! The only real difference is that the oats were cooked before throwing into the batter. :) 

5. I have got to find an Easter outfit for myself, as well as a dedication outfit. 

Although I have lost the baby weight, these "baby hips or milk makers" as I like to call them have not gone back to where they are supposed to be, making trying on clothes not so fun. I will have to decide on something this next week as Easter is right around the corner--literally, as well as Bennetts dedication. 

What you missed this week!

Monday- gDiapers
Thursday- Babysitter Notes Printable


  1. I love infusion water bottles! It makes it so much easier for me to drink water haha. Bennett is too cute! Have a great weekend girl!

  2. Yay for some extra sleep! I feel like I always hit a wall around dinner time too! I need to find something for Easter too! Enjoy having your hubby back this weekend :)

  3. I am always looking for an oatmeal raisin cookie recipe, so I'm excited to see that post coming! I still haven't found my Easter outfit either, but I'm going to try to hit the stores this weekend. You may have already completed one, but I've nominated you for a Liebster Award. :)
