We finished our bathroom remodel last week, you guys! It really happened. It only took 4 months instead of 6 weeks, which we anticipated happening when you toss 3 kids into the equation and doing it all yourself. Woof – we are so glad it is behind us (minus a few decor pieces, duh)! Now when the weekend rolls around I know that Dan isn’t strapped to the project and we can finally enjoy some quality family time.
Get us out of the house, and hand us both a cocktail please. Preferably a delicious beer from our cousins joint, @HiHo Brewing Company. It is hands down our favorite place to bring the kids, grab a drink and play some board games with them. If you haven’t checked this place out yet, run, and do not be shy bringing your little ones – the atmosphere is family friendly all the way. Dan’s favorite brew is the touchdown brown, their new irish ale and mine is the smash and blonde.
The relationship between these two lately is amazing. Yes, of course they fight and punch each other in the gut here and there. But Brody is now 8, and Owen will be 6 next month – they are jiving together so well, and playing all day everyday. We’ve cut off ipads during the school week, and for most of the weekend which has resulted in our kiddos being SO much more well-tempered. Something about those screens can just turn (our kids at least) into either little jerks or complete iPad-aholics. It’s ridiculously refreshing taking them and “treating” them with ipad time at unexpected moments.
Max max max. Can you handle the cuteness? The pretzels at HiHo are so freaking good you guys, and Max literally screams and squeezes his hands together until we rip him off a chunk. He will eat everything and anything, and somehow managed to turn Dan and I into creatures that can survive off of an average 3 hours of sleep a night. I wish I was exaggerating, or kidding – but I am not. Hence the beer 🙂
WE ARE FORKING TIRED…
BUT. Family comes first. We may complain but we try to step it up and push our heavy eyes aside, because you simple cannot get days back like this. While we’d love to nap or take a break from getting out or socializing I would not sleep for the rest of my life to have more days like these. Truly.
Give me all the carbs — Brody and Owen pop right up on a bar stool and order our food now, and understand how to put it on our tab far to well now.
This guy right here deserves allllll the make out sessions in the world. If we had the energy, HA.
You all know by now that he works his regular job, travels, and sometimes I cannot get him off the computer through dinner when he’s handling business. Only to pick up his lap top and continue to do school work most nights until 10:00pm, only to wake up and do it all over again running on zero sleep. He’s absolutely the best, and supports me in everything I do (thank goodness because I can be a real pain in the rear!)
Keep an eye open for our bathroom reveal later this week, it is amazing if I do say so myself!
