Build-A-Bear

An Impromptu Day Date

I wish I could say Jimmy and I went on a lovely, relaxing day date together (kind of like this one!), but that’s not what this post is about 😂 Instead, the poor guy came home from work early on Tuesday because he wasn’t feeling well.

I know it’s hard to rest with a young child in the house, and it’s especially hard with Sadie because she adores Jimmy and wants to play with him anytime he’s home. Like, if he’s on the couch, she’s literally on top of him just talking and living her best life. Definitely not what you need when you’re feeling under the weather 😆

So, I got Jimmy settled into bed and Sadie and I went off on an impromptu day date so he could have some peace and quiet.

Our first stop was Build-A-Bear! I hadn’t taken Sadie there since January 2021 and we had a gift card that I had been saving for an occasion just like this! She built a mermaid bear and was very polite and sweet with the workers. It was a fun experience to have together. (more…)

Hot Cocoa, First Snow, and Other Things of Note

We introduced Sadie to hot cocoa and it’s safe to say she’s a big fan. We had our first cold and snowy morning (nothing accumulated though 😕) so we thought it was the perfect opportunity to whip out some packets of hot cocoa!

After she drank her hot cocoa she played with her dolls by the fireplace and it was so cozy ❄️
