Hello Friday!

Hellooo Friday!  This week has been such a better week than last and I am SO thankful for that!  Somehow though I woke up multiple mornings asking myself (or Matt) what day it was!  Ha!  How does that happen?  Tell me I'm not alone!?

I'm linking up with April, Christina, Natasha & Darci

One - So, this week I made the biggest #MomWin move since Jack has been born... let me share!  On Wednesday Jack was able to return to "school" and I left the house a little early to make a couple stops before picking him up.  I was rushing because I couldn't be late but, was so proud of myself when I arrived to pick him up almost 15 minutes early.  I went in, got him & his good progress report for the day, walked out both happy as could be and then it hit me.  I left his car seat at home!!!  I felt like the biggest idiot, laughed at myself & then cringed when I had to call Matt to tell him what I had done.  Thankfully He doesn't work too far from home & was able to run home (on his motorcycle), grab the car seat, bring it to me & return to work.  The best part of the whole thing was seeing Matt roll up on his motorcycle with Jack's car seat strapped to the back.  I died laughing!!!  Ohh... If that's not a #MomWin I don't know what is!  Thankfully Jack was happy as a clam playing in the car & Matt & I laughed it off!

Two - Also, this happened this week... Talk about melting a parents heart for sure!

Three - What was your kiddo for their first Halloween??  I think we've finally decided on a costume for Jack & keeping it cute & simple... A bat!  I've seen some fun ones on Pinterest so I think it should be fairly easy!

Four - I made these Pumpkin-Chocolate Brownies for the first time last night & am taking them to a get together today!  I am hoping they are good but, I mean... Chocolate? Pumpkin? How could it go wrong!?  Recipe coming soon!!

Five - I've added some new banners to my shop this week & this "Give Thanks" banner is probably one of my favorites!  I reluctantly mailed it out on Monday! Ha!

Also, be sure you stop by April's blog!  There just might be a discount code in there for my shop!

We're off to our first ever pumpkin patch this weekend & I absolutely cannot wait - I just know it's going to be the best time!  ...Setting us up to fail & have a terrible time... ha!

What are your weekend plans?

Life Lately

Hey y'all! I've been a bit MIA recently so I figured a good 'ol "Life Lately" post would be fitting!  Where do I even start... 

Oh yes!  Last Sunday night/Monday... Jack came down with a virus that is apparently going around our area - YAAY!  So, we spent Monday - Friday consoling a sick baby, cleaning up throw-up & diarrhea blow-outs, washing laundry, a baby (multiple times), a car seat & bases... MY HOUSE!  I've never smelt & dealt with so much vomit & poo in my life!  Needless to say I am so glad that is over!

However, on Wednesday Jack stopped eating about 11:30 am & refused all bottles & pedialyte from then on.  So, we made our first trip to urgent care that night to find out that not only did he have this virus but, also an ear infection! {Insert big shocked first-time parent eyes}  Thankfully he's been on meds since & seems to be doing better but, after a quick check-up with his dr yesterday is on a new dose of meds that will hopefully kick the ear infection out for good!

Thursday Jack seemed to be feeling a bit better after getting a couple doses of meds in him so I took advantage & stepped outside to get some fresh air!  I think it made him so happy to be outside too & watch Bingham run around!
Let's not fool anyone though... once back inside He lost it, was super cranky & back to not feeling awesome.  The joys of a sick baby - I have no clue what He needs or wants!

After battling it out Friday night for a good 3 hours getting this boy to sleep, Matt & I were slooow moving on Saturday & took it easy around the house - as easy as this guy would let us!  Later Saturday afternoon we busted out of the house & visited the park.  This was Jack's second time in the swing & He LOVES it!!  It was nice to get out of the house as a family and have a little fun!

I'm super thankful that after 8 months this is our first major illness but, I feel like we made up for lost time for sure!  With Jack over the virus & starting to feel better from the ear infection we've been trying to get back on track with our normal schedule.  Schedules are everything!!

The weather has been good to us the last week + and I've been taking advantage of it when I can!  Opening the house up, burning my favorite Fall candles & taking Jack out to enjoy the fresh air!  We even got to have lunch with Matt one afternoon and stroll around Downtown for a little bit - it was such a nice treat & welcomed change after last week!

So, that's basically where I've been hiding.... At home with a sickly little babe.  Oh!  And I've been working on new items in my Etsy store - The Fancy Yancey Shop!  Be sure to stop by & check out the new Thanksgiving banners I recently listed!

Hope y'all are having a great week!  I'll now resume regular programming... Whatever that is these days!  :)

Linking up with Jessi & Jenn!

Weekend Rundown!

Happy Monday, y'all!  I hope y'all had a great weekend & are ready to tackle this week!  I sure am!

This weekend we celebrated my dad's birthday (his birthday is today!  Happy Birthday Dad!!)  I had seen a shirt on Pinterest and knew I had to recreate it!  My Dad & Jack are just two peas in a pod so, I couldn't resist making a matching onesie for Jack too!  I think they turned out perfectly!  #PinterestWin

I mentioned Friday that I had picked up a variety pack of Fall/Pumpkin beers for Matt & I to try.  Well, we finished them off this weekend & I think it's safe to say the Saint Arnold Oktobefest stays at #1 for us!
Shiner Oktoberfest - A good beer but, nothing to get too excited about.
Leinenkugal's Harvest Patch Shandy - Matt & I both enjoyed this beer.  It's nice and refreshing with just the right amount of pumpkin spice to it.  If you're looking for something with pumpkin in it I vote this first & then the Jack-o Traveler Pumpkin Shandy.
Rahr & Sons Oktoberfest - a local Ft. Worth made beer, is a good Oktoberfest & probably my second choice of an "Oktoberfest" behind the Saint Arnold.
And lastly, the Sierra Nevada Oktoberfest... Neither Matt or I were overly impressed with this beer.  It honestly just tasted like any other beer... There wasn't anything there telling me it was a seasonal beer, let alone an Oktoberfest.

I also mentioned Friday about my love for the Pumpkin Pecan Waffle candle from Bath & Body Works.  Well, Friday evening we popped in to pick up a couple more and stumbled upon the Apple Pumpkin Pancakes flavor scent.  OH it smells amazing!  Needless to say, I would like to eat both candles!

That's all I've got for today!  Happy Monday!!
