Weekend Rewind

Well would you look at that...the weekend absolutely flew by and here we are again, back at Monday.  The start of a new week.  #givemeallthecoffee

Let's rewind back to Friday to see what happened this weekend in our little neck of the woods, shall we?

I had asked Madden Friday morning when he woke up what his plans were for after school that day.  His response was "I'll probably get a snack, then play in the snow, and then hang out and work on legos once it gets dark out." {a man with a plan;)}  I then asked him if he wanted to go on a date with me instead.  And if you follow me on instagram ( @jennaschaben ) then you already know his response, but if you don't it went just like this: "Mommy, I would love to, but I think I'm a little bit too little to go on dates." #blesshisheart  I just hope he always feels this way...

So, after school pick-up, and once the hubby got home from work to take care of Linden, Madden and I snuck out to a movie.  We have wanted to see "A Dog's Purpose" since we first saw the previews, so that's what we saw.  Word of advice if you decide to go see it.  Bring the tissues.  Because holy waterworks.  Also, it's probably a little more appropriate for kiddos aged over 5, as it does get pretty deep in some parts!  But overall, it's such a great movie with a fabulous message for us all!

We hit up DQ afterwards for some ice cream before calling it a night.  In bed before 9 on a Friday?  Perfection.

Saturday morning was spent with the boys and I hitting up the gym while Daddy went into the office. No better way to start the weekend than with a good old sweat session, especially knowing that I tend to let my eating habits get a little more lenient on the weekends. #balance ;)

Followed up the gym with a little Starbucks reward for all of us!  And question for you I the only weird one who drinks frozen or iced coffee in the winter time??

We laid low the rest of the day, watching Trolls on repeat, binging The Office on Netflix, and working on Legos and playing games.  Such a laid back day, but the perfect way to end a very (sick filled) week.)  If I never have to clean up another puke mess, I will be perfectly fine with that!

Even though we were extremely lazy on Saturday, we were all in bed by 8 that night and slept in until 8 on Sunday morning!  Holy cow...I cannot remember the last time I slept for a solid 12 hours! But man, oh man did it feel great!  I made a breakfast of eggs and bacon for the boys and a vat of coffee for myself!  We turned on Apple Music and just danced, played some more games and hung out until nap time.  I whipped up these super easy 3 ingredient banana chocolate muffins for Linden's Preschool class since he has to bring snack this week, and I may or may not have had a couple when they were fresh out of the oven! Seriously so good, and so so easy!

I then watched a marathon of Fixer Upper while snacking on these coconut chips.  Oh my word, for being a "healthy" snack, they are Dang good!  {Maybe that's where they came up with the name?}

I know this weekend sounds absolutely boring, but those are some of my absolute favorite weekends ever!  No plans, and just lots of quality time with my boys...just the way I like it.  Some may call me lame, but I know that I'm a homebody and I'm perfectly fine with that.  I know our weekends of nothing to do are limited and will change as soon as the boys become more active in sports and activities.  But until then, I'll be a lazy bum if I want to!

What about you?  Any fun activities from this weekend?  Are you a homebody or do you prefer to have every minute planned??

Until next time...


  1. I totally need that coffee mug. I am so glad you are blogging again. I missed catching up with you.

  2. Oh Christi, you are just way too sweet! Thank you so much for sticking with me, even after my hiatus!! It truly means more than you know! As for the coffee mug, I got it at Target and it's my absolute favorite! It can hold a crazy amount of coffee! :D
