Fri-Yay

Well, Liam woke up last night throwing up, so we have a day of movies & snuggles ahead of us.  Then hopefully we are all healthy come tomorrow!  The weekends are going to just start flying by now that holiday season is practically here! As is the snow!  We need to go swap out Liam's skis & boots, since he has grown a ton since last Winter.  I can't wait to get him on the mountain.  This year he will actually be old enough for ski school, so perhaps we will try that! Anyways, we don't have much planned, so I'm hoping to make it a productive weekend of house projects.  Throw in some college basketball & football, and it sounds practically perfect to me!  Here's my typical bit of randomness on a Friday:

-ONE-
I have already finished our book club for December because it was amazing!!!   Calling Me Home by Julie Kibler.  Read it now. 


-TWO-
I tried some H&M nursing tanks, and they are my new favorites!  And at 2 for $30, you really can't be the price.  (Well actually Target can beat that price, but the Target tanks did not hold up well for me).


-THREE-
Did you know that Oprah's "Favorite Things" are available on Amazon?!  The whole list!  This weekend I plan on getting cozy on the couch during nap time with a big mug of coffee and sifting through all that goodness.  I'm sure I will find lots of gift ideas there!  Thanks to Vanessa for sharing this little tidbit.


- FOUR-
I just snagged Liam a pair of Sorel snow boots on sale ($10 off)!  He had the same style last year, and they were perfect!  We spend a ton of time outside in the snow, so a good pair of boots are a must.  These are super easy to put on & they stay on.  Plus, Liam never complained about his feet being cold!


-FIVE-
Liam is super into board games right now.  It's a great way to spend some family time together, well at least while Finn is sleeping because he just wants ALL the pieces!  We have Chutes & Ladders, Candyland, & the Sneaky Snacky Squirrel Game (our favorite, also on sale!), but I want to get a couple more as Christmas gifts.  So tell me your favorite board games for your three year olds!

  2. Oh, love those boots. Both kids need new boots this year so that's on my list. As for games, we have Hungry Hungry Hippos, a couple matching games, Chutes & Ladders and CandyLand. I'm thinking of getting Operation and Sorry.

  3. Oh no! Hope Liam feels better soon! I noticed Oprah's Favorite Things this morning but haven't had a chance to check them out yet - must do so ASAP! She always recommends such great stuff! I've also heard lots of good things about that Squirrel game - what age do you think is a good age to start playing it? Would 2.5 be too young?

  9. Ugh about Liam being sick! That stinks! We also have Hi Ho Cherry-O and like it. I also picked up a Daniel Tiger game and Jenga to give Noah for Christmas. Noah just recently got into board games :)

  10. Poor Liam, and poor mom! Seriously praying no one else in your family comes down with what he had. Hope he's on the mend! I'm taking your advice and downloaded the sample of that book to my Kindle. I'm hoping to do some reading in the hospital while I'm nursing through the night and I need some good books. So envious of the snow! I wish it would snow here (just a bit) so we could play in it! Have a great weekend!

  11. Get well soon, buddy! Here's hoping to a fast recovery. We are board game freaks too! The same makers of Sneaky Snacky Squirrel have a dog game similar called Shelby's Snack Shack. We also really like Pop the Pig.

  16. Thanks for the boot advice! We will definitely be needing good boots for our active boy here in Ohio for the winter! Hope everyone feels better this weekend!

  17. I saw that that game was on sale on Amazon and I'm trying to figure out who to get it for for Christmas! I think it might be a little too old for Mason still, but at that price, we might just have to snatch one up for us anyway!

  18. Ugh--stomach bug :( Hope everyone is healthy and back to normal by now! I've added several things from Oprah's list to my Amazon list...it's just too easy! Arden got the SSS game for her birthday and loves it, but her all-time favorite is Zingo. It's pretty fun! I was also just looking at Feed the Woozle on, you guessed it, Amazon ;)
