Five on Friday: Nannyless and "Iced In"

What a week! Our nanny was on vacation this week so it's been a little hectic around here. Fortunately for me (and mostly for Jason) my job is pretty flexible so I took on Jack this week 100%.  I had my mom watched him most of Monday and Thursday morning so I could get some uninterrupted work time in. Other than that I've been working from home and taking Jack to the office with me.  We even snuck in a little trip to see Jason at work. 

It's been nice to have so much time with my little guy, but not as productive as usual. Needless to say, I'm ready for things to go back to normal next week.

Here is a quick (and late) Five on Friday.  Have a great weekend!


Eeyore was always my favorite character on Winnie the Pooh.  He is a glass is half empty kinda guy just like me.  High hopes, low expectations.  I couldn't resist  these PJ's that I found at Babies R Us.  Jack didn't enjoy this near as much as I should see the outtakes. 


This picture sums up my week. 


Jason and I finally went on a date night - just the two of us last Saturday.  My dad and Karin babysat for us.  We saw Lone Survivor at Studio Movie Grill.  I know, not your typical happy date movie, but Jason was dying to see it so I sacrificed.  The movie was great, but very intense.  You need tissues.  And an extra glass of wine afterwards to decompress.  Jason went to school with Marcus so this especially hit home to him. 


If you are staying in this evening like we plan to do, check out Shark Tank on ABC. The owner of Freshly Picked Moccasins that we are such a fan of will be on! 
Jack showing off his Freshly Picked Moccs...only shoes he will tolerate


And because today was an ice day in Houston (most school were closed) Jack and I decided it was best not to leave the house, even though Jason did for work and said it was fine.  Jack is still in his pajamas and has had a great day playing.  It's a shame this kid doesn't have any toys.  Baby's first "snow" day!


Just had to fit one more random thought in.  I went to the "Breaking Down the Barre" class last night at my local Pure Barre Studio.  It was a great way to make sure I was doing all of the moves right and great encouragement to keep it up!  The class is free and is occasionally offered at all PB studios.   


  1. I live in Houston too and my car was covered in ice for most of the day. That's what happens when your husband is stingy with a 3 car garage, haha. Those Eeyore pajamas are too cute!!

  2. {visiting from the link up} Oh my goodness!!!! Those pajamas are the cutest!! Your son is adorable!! Your Mr. has a great name too hubby's name is Jason ;) Hope your precious fam has a fabulous weekend!

  3. YAY!! So glad y'all had a date night!! We debated going to see that when my mom was visiting.

    And, of course, Jack is adorable, as always!!

  4. Yay for date night!! Those are so nice. My hubby wants to see Lone Survivor too, but we haven't made it yet.
