I haven’t done a Day in the Life post in a long while! Even though the day isn’t a typical day (since hubby was home) I thought it would be a fun day to do one anyway!
I was up at 5:55. It was time to make the
donuts bagels. I had made a batch of bagel dough on Wednesday so I would be ready to cook first thing in the morning. Hubby likes bagels and I’ve never tried homemade ones before. What better day to start. While those were rising and cooking I straightened up the living room (which I didn’t do the night before because I started on my serger class).
Cupcake woke up just before 7 and Pumpkin a little after. They got started on breakfast (yogurt first while waiting for the bagels to cool a bit). We watched an episode of Diego and then it was upstairs to get dressed.
Pumpkin successfully woke Sleeping Beauty up with her squeaky boots, so hugs and happy birthdays were given. Hubby dined on his homemade bagel and opened his present (a new watch). And then it was off to school for Cupcake.
After dropping Cupcake off, Pumpkin and I headed over to the mall to do some walking and bring down the average age of mall walkers down a bit. Pumpkin happily snacked on her apple slices while I walked.
I had planned to go for a run with my Moms Run This Town group, but there was still snow on the ground and it was raining, so a mall walk it was. I had something to return to Old Navy, so it worked out. Then we swung by the craft store and picked up some serger thread and a canvas. And it was back home to freshen up. Also known as the time of day when Pumpkin plays in Cupcake’s room without big sister complaining.
Cucpake wanted both of us to pick her up from school, so we did. Then it was back home for lunch. The girls always play so good right after school. I think they miss each other. So I cleaned up the kitchen, did the dishes and started some laundry while they hung out.
I helped Cupcake bake a cake (it was a birthday after all!) and Pumpkin went down for her nap.
After the cake was out of the oven I headed downstairs to work on my serger class. Cupcake played independently for a while before joining me downstairs.
After rethreading my machine for the fourth time and getting flustered we came back upstairs to make frosting for the cake. I got the cake decorated and our mess cleaned up just in time for Pumpkin to wake up. She was grumpy so we had to snuggle for a bit (love my baby snuggles!!!).
We played while daddy went to happy hour with Mike. And changed out our Valentine wreath for our spring wreath on the front door. Hubby brought home some fried chicken for his birthday dinner. We sang happy birthday. Ate cake and had some family fun. And then I left hubby to put the girls to bed so I could have a girls night out! (yes, my awesome hubby let me go out with two of my best girls on his birthday!)
We did a little sipping (Angry Orchard for me) and some painting.
I’m really happy with how my painting turned out and I think it will look great in one of the girls’ rooms!
It was late when I got home (almost 10:00!!), but hubby and I chatted about our evenings, played with Oscar and heard the tornado sirens go off just as we were about to turn out the lights. I guess that’s what happens when it’s 60 degrees in February!
What a fun day! Good food, good company, over 12,000 steps on my Fitbit and some fun. Happy birthday, Hubby!
