Happy Leap Day friends! Leap Day is an odd thing. I mean, an extra day every 4 years… seems like a reason to celebrate, right? Instead, Leap Day is falling on a Monday which means it’s just like any old day. I’m curious – do any of you have a Leap Day birthday? Do you celebrate 2/28 or 3/1? These are the things I ponder on a Monday morning.
This weekend was a busy wonderful weekend. Time with family and absolutely adorable nieces means a weekend well spent. I’m sure every aunt out there thinks this, but gosh – my nieces are the best. Friday and Saturday was spent soaking as much time up with them as possible. Sunday was one for the books as well – perfect weather, church, nap, long walk in the sunshine, a little cleaning, and binge watching Fuller House. Speaking of which, have you watched Fuller House? We’re not quite done watching it yet, but we love it in all it’s cheesy wonderful glory. I mean, nobody was expecting some perfect deep TV show, right? I love it for it’s cheesiness and I’m not afraid to admit it!
This week is a semi-busy one – Husband has a few exams, I need to play catch-up from the weekend, and we have a guest staying with us this weekend. When things get busy, meal planning keeps things a bit more sane. Sometimes I get frustrated that a meal fails or we eat out, but then I have to remind myself, if I didn’t meal plan it would be a dinner disaster every single day. So I keep on meal planning and enjoy the little bits of sanity it provides.
