Our Saturday in photos.

morning help / saturday brunch / work / a flight of milk / working on writing / working on reading / more reading / listening / napping / and even more reading / a clean kitchen / a crazy haired girl / new finds / bath time / a night out / a snowy evening to end our saturday

There is something about spending a long weekend tucked away inside your home. In the cool of this winter it felt so good to spend that time indoors with my little ones. We played games, we played cds (because our record player is broken) and we cooked up a feast. And while the kids played on their own and napped I cleaned and caught up on laundry. I even snuck out on Saturday (thank you Nana Barb!!) for a quick thrifting trip and happily came home with a load of goodies. And on top of that I even got a run in!

We spent Saturday evening hanging out with my parents over good food and some post dinner coffee and greek pastries. After arriving home and settling everyone down for the night our sitter came over and I headed down to meet Jon for a late dinner. While I was really hoping to lounge on the couch, sip green tea, and catch up on American Horror Story or watch Beasts of the Southern Wild I found motivation and headed out. I relaxed over some good conversation with Jon and caught up with some family and friends.

Sunday brought us another winter day for hiding inside, and that's exactly what we did. We built legos, played Jenga and Dominos, read our books and took warm baths. We spent the evening hanging out with my sister and brother in law, who live up the street from us, and watching a movie with the kids. I decided to make this coming week a "no tv week" so we ended with a family movie tonight.

There's no school tomorrow and I'm really looking forward to hanging out with the kids. It's lunch at the restaurant and maybe hitting the bookstore. I am SO proud of Jonas for reading chapter books that I may need to treat him to a new book. I hope you enjoyed your weekend, whether it was long or short, and hope the week treats you well.


  1. Oh my gosh, I love your kitchen! So full of light. :) Sounds like you had a lovely weekend, yay for no school!

  2. It sounds like you had a lovely weekend!

    And okay, your kitchen is GORGEOUS. It's so awesome to see it in its entirety.

    Of course, you already know you have beautiful children!

  3. You take some lovely pictures Elizabeth :) I think weekends at home are the best. I love to cut myself off from the outside world and just potter with my girl. I love your curtains!
