A few last things...


We had snow in North Carolina yesterday and I loved every second of it...mainly because I was able to stay inside the entire day! :)  The boys went out in the morning with Noel and I cleaned and organized every single closet in my house.  It was amazing.   

Here are a few "last things" around here....

The last-


*Moment I Really Really Appreciated....


A few days ago, my Dad came from out of town to visit for the afternoon.  He took the boys with him to go grocery shopping for me (and I got some time to get the baby's room straightened out), made us dinner for the night, AND made a giant pot of soup to get us through the snowy weekend.  It was amazing.  It's only the first week of January and he's won Dad of the Year already!  Baby girl has grown a ton this week which has made me super slow and giant, so this was a major blessing times a billion.


*Hair product I really loved...


This!  My mom got me this "it's a 10" miracle oil for Christmas and it is everything.  Really helps with all these crazy fly aways and cow lick I have going on.


*Book I Read...


The Royal We.  I randomly picked this up from the library and, besides a few ehh paragraphs in the middle of the book, I thought it was really great.  It was a fictional take on the Royal Family and the ups and downs of an unlikely courtship.


*Movie I Watched...


The Hollars.  Noel and I had an at-home movie night last weekend and rented this on Apple TV. We're both big fans of John Krasinski and he directed this movie and starred in it.  We both really liked it.  (Anna Kendrick is in it as well.)  It was both funny and sad and very well done. Also the soundtrack was beautiful.



*Hair Cut Crew boo had...


And it went really really well.  In the past, he's acted crazy town while getting his hair cut.  At this place, equipped with a vehicle to sit in, a movie to watch, and a lollipop to eat, he does great! :)



*Big moment in our house...


Charlie lost his 2 bottom teeth!! He lost his 1st tooth at home and his 2nd during lunch at school.  He told Grandpa on the phone that he thought the tooth fairy was going to leave him $20, so I was happy to see how excited he was when he found "1 dollar cash!!" (direct quote) under his pillow in the morning for each tooth.


I hope y'all are staying safe and warm!  Church was cancelled today because of snow, so we are at home-reading, eating, snoozing, and nesting (me!)

Lovely recap! My 5 yr old is anxious to lose her teeth for the tooth fairy surprise. Lol

I find it so funny that you and I reacted to the snow day in exactly the same way lol...my husband was so excited to bundle up and venture out into the snow, and I was so excited to stay inside and re-organize our entire kitchen! Guess everyone has their own version of the perfect snow day! ;)

Um, how adorable is that airplane that they have at the hair salon?? I don't have kids so maybe that is a standard thing and I'm just out of the loop, but I think it's so cute! I'm like you in that I love getting to stay inside on snow days...I love the way it forces you to slow down and gives you some extra time to knock out those projects that have just been chilling on your to do list for ages!

Oh Dad, what a lifesaver! We'll both be cheering on the Cowboys this week!

I still remember being excited for the quarter the tooth fairy left me. I think you had the perfect snow day. I spent much of mine reading and watching Poldark season 2. Jess at Just Jess

That hair cut place has got to be the coolest hair salon I've ever seen! 😂 Gosh I wish they had this for when I was a kid! Instead I just listened to little old ladies gossip at the beauty salon my grandmother went to...haha! Hope you're staying warm and having fun with this snow!

I really liked The Royal We, too! Definitely a page-turner once it picked up.
