OLW - Check in for February

This will be a rather short post as I only took a couple pictures relating to this post. Still enjoying my family more than anything and organizing when I feel like it.


We flipped around some furniture in the master bedroom and are in the process of decluttering and deep cleaning. The rest of the project will continue with putting up curtains and maybe moving around some more furniture. I'm holding out on photos until the whole thing is done... or done enough to my satisfaction.

We brought the computer desk, turned craft desk, into the second bedroom. It is where it is staying and I have already unpacked and put away some of the craft stuffs that I have, but there's tons more I haven't even looked at yet. This is going to be an ongoing process... I can already see it.

Other than that, we have been trying to clean up the play room every evening, so we don't have to take an hour to do it on the weekend. And dinners at home have been touch and go. We lost the dry erase marker that we used to write the menu (thanks to a certain 4-year-old), so this week has been less than successful. Overall, though, we haven't done too badly this month.


It has still been ridiculously warm this month, so we took plenty of trips to the park and into the back yard. We hit up a few malls on some nights, just to get out of the house. The first weekend of the month Joe and I went on a "date", thanks to my MIL. She watched both boys for a few hours, so we could go to a movie and eat lunch. We saw "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close" and then went to Lonestar Steakhouse for lunch. It was a nice afternoon outing.

The next week, we went on a "scavenger hunt" for Joe's birthday ending with Joe and I going out to eat at Kobe's, since my mom watched the boys for a little while.

The next day we also went out to eat with my family, to celebrate. We went to Red Robin. My mom's birthday was the next week, so we went to Red Brick Station then came home and watched a couple episodes of the Dick Van Dyke show.

This past weekend my sister, her husband, Elijah and I attended a thing called Winterfest, where I used to go to college (my sis still attends there for grad school). Elijah had so much fun. I hope to do a full post about it in the coming weeks. Until then, I'll leave you with a taste of what the night entailed

Those were the highlights of our month, in general.

I don't know about you, but February feels like it just started and we even got an extra day this month. Crazyness...

How did your month go?

My month flew by and I didn't get neither enough done! Sounds like you made a bunch of progress! That's exciting.

I'm glad you got out and had some fun too. The park and backyard are great places to hang out. You're making memories every time!

Love the photo of Elijah...he looks like he's excited about the battle before him!
