Spring Soccer!

Everly officially started back up with the spring soccer a couple of weeks ago but her first game was this weekend. There are two girls on the team that were on the team in the fall and the rest are new. I signed up to do snacks this weekend so we could get that out of the way so Friday night we put together snack bags. Her game was at 10:45 which was amazing weather wise and since it would be almost lunch when she got done we decided to pack little bags with peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Everly loved putting them together and decorating the bags with unicorn stickers (her team is named the Unicorns again). I never buy those uncrustables but both Everly and Aspen pounded theirs on Saturday so maybe I should buy them more often. Everly did great at her game. She still sometimes runs around or next to the action instead of getting involved but she scored 3 goals and her team won so it was a great start to the season. I love watching her play and she really loves playing too. She was soooo excited in the days leading up to her first game. She even told me to take a picture of her when she falls down because she is going to get back up again. I love her sooo much!

Weekend in Review: President's Day

We had a great relaxing long holiday weekend. I actually had Friday off so it was a 4-day weekend for me and Aspen. We got a lot of rain this weekend but other than forcing me to run on the treadmill, it didn't ruin anything. Well it did cause my game to get cancelled on Sunday, but I didn't want to play that team anyways so I would have been bummed if it didn't get cancelled. On Saturday we did some shopping with the girls and got some cleaning and picking up done around the house. Everly and I went to church while Justin stayed home with a napping Aspen and then picked us up Café Rio. On Sunday I took the girls grocery shopping while Justin got some work done at home and then got in a run later in the day when the rain let up. We had a nice steak dinner at home Sunday night. Justin had to work Monday and my sister needed some help while she was at an appointment with Cameron so I woke up the girls after I got home from the gym and headed over to my sister's house for a couple of hours. They kids decorated some mittens and had a blast playing with each other. After my sister got back I took the girls for a Target trip and smoothies before heading to a park to play before lunch. I loved getting extra time with the girls this weekend. They really are so sweet and so much fun.

Story time with Aspen

Last Friday I had the day off from work and Everly had a half-day at school so while Ev was in school Aspen and I headed to the library for a Toddler Signing Storytime. We got there a little early to return books and pick up some new books. We are now in the stage of getting Everly new reader books and she loves it. I had not been to a story time with Aspen in a while and she did so great. She sang along and participated and sat on my lap when the instructor was reading the stories. She loved dancing around and especially loved the bubbles at the end. She was so stinking cute I can't take it. I always try to do something fun with her on my days off and this was great. It doesn't always have to be a big production for it to be a successful morning. A simple (and free) trip to the library was exactly what we needed to pass the time. I love my one-on-one time with Aspen.

Sephora Play!: February

Yay! I got my February Sephora Play! box this weekend it is awesome as usual. This month's the was "The Soft Side" and includes lots of neutrals and skin-perfecting formulas. I got so excited when I opened this box like it was freaking Christmas.  I am so excited to try the Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Quench Lip Rescue. Also very excited about the Too Faced Lip Injection. I never used to care much about lip products but have entirely too many now. I have tried Prada Candy before and love it and also love the GinZing eye cream. That little tube lasts a long while because you only need a small amount of product which is nice because eye cream is expensive. I always love trying out a new mascara and have tried the Clinique pep-start eye cream but not the blur moisturizer so I am excited about that too. Can't wait to start using some of these products tomorrow!

such a good box!

Everly's Valentine's Day Party

Yesterday afternoon I was able to leave work a little early to make it to Everly's school for her Valentine's Day party. It was really fun to see her in her class again. Similar to her Christmas party, they kids decorated cookies and then all had their Valentine's bags handed out. Everly was so excited to go through all of her Valentine's. She loved reading who each was from. It is so fun at this age because all of the kids really like each other. They love sharing things with each other and there are no cliques or anything, at least, not in her class. There was only like 4 other parents that were able to go so I realize how lucky I am to be able to make it to these things occasionally. I took her home after the party and we went to Target and then picked up Aspen which I don't normally do so it was fun. Hope everyone had a great Valentine's Day!
