First Day of Wee Ski Lessons

 Hello friends and happy Monday! It sounds like quite a few of us got snow over the weekend, and I hope you all were able to get out and enjoy it! Today's post will be short and sweet as we are still out and about enjoying the snow. I am linking up with Sarah and Holly for Hello Monday. 

On Friday afternoon our sweet girl had her very first ski lessons, and she and I were both really excited. Devin had to work Friday, so the kids and I left Charlotte, drove the 1 hour and 45 minutes up to Blowing Rock. We dropped Liam off with my parents and then LG and I were ready to hit the slopes! 

Ya'll the whole process of getting checked in, getting our lift tickets, getting our boots and skis, getting our locker, going to the bathroom one last time and getting over to the ski lessons was an ordeal! She was very cooperative but the whole process took us close to an hour and a half, which felt like an eternity! We finally made it to the ski lessons and our sweet girl immediately connected with her teacher and was ready!

Friday Favorites

 Hello there! Happy Friday! Today we are on our way to the mountains for Lily Grace's first WeeSki ski lesson. I am more excited than she is. One of the best parts of parenting is getting to share the things you love with your children, and I have some of the fondest memories of skiing as a kid. I can't wait for us to be able to ski together one day!

Today I am linking up with Andrea and Erika for Friday Favorites. I have a random assortment of fun things for ya!

Top 21 Amazon Purchases from 2021

Good morning friends and happy Friday! This week has turned out differently than we expected, but honestly ended up as such a blessing. I took the kids to get tested on Monday afternoon, assuming they would test negative and be in the clear to go back to school this week. Unfortunately they tested positive, and the doctor told us they could continue to test positive for 90 days after infection (cue me being like "WHAT?! They need to test negative to go back to school!!"). Thankfully the schools have changed their policies, we used to need negative PCR's to return, but now a doctor's note stating when their quarantine is over and they are able to safely return is fine. 

Anyway though, it gave our family an extra week at home together and we had a wonderful time just relaxing at home, with nowhere to be but together. While I love running around and getting errands done, there's something kind of nice about being forced to just sit still and be present in the moment. 

Today's post is a roundup of my top Amazon purchases from 2021.. my top 21 from '21! These are the items I used regularly throughout the year and I would highly recommend every single one!
