Hey Hey! It’s Friday!

How was your week??ย While last week was a super productive week, this week was a study on lazy… ’tis the season!

But here is what’s been going on, in the midst of all the lazy!

1. Another weekend, another birthday party! ๐Ÿ™‚ That’s so much fun when you have kids – there’s always a birthday to go to. I love it!

Last weekend we had a party at the Durham Life & Science Museum. I love that place, and so does Elizabeth! While we were there we practiced walking. The stinker knows how to walk – she’ll take a couple steps, wait for the applause, then sit. But she does love holding hands and walking. And when she does that I just can’t believe how big she’s gotten!

2. My mom was so sweet to send 4 gifts for Elizabeth to open on each Advent evening. We missed the last weekend, so Elizabeth had to open two in one night. I made the mistake of letting her open the play nativity set, so she could have cared less about the second gift.ย Recapping the week on the Cup of Tea blog


3. It was a bad week for Katie and the body quirks. Not only do I currently have 3 zits on my face, but I found 3 grey hairs on my head…. grr…. Bad things come in 3, right? So there’s still one more to come.

4. And because of the grey hairs, I was “forced” to color my hair this week ๐Ÿ™‚ Just a shade darker. Plus, I whacked about 6 inches off. I don’t know what got into me! I’ve always been a long hair girl, but medium length just felt right.

5. Last night, we went to Wake Forest with some friends for a sleigh ride and Santa visit! Elizabeth had to get on her warm weather gear, and she was pretty pleased.

The sleigh ride was delightful! And short. The horse drawn carriage literally went around the block! But it was fun, and a great way to get in the spirit!! ย There was no Santa visit. The line was atrociously long… plus Elizabeth came without a hair bow, and her red shirt, while festive, was stained with her first try of ketchup. A perfect picture that does not make.Recapping the week on the Cup of Tea blog

Hope you have a delightful weekend!! Let me know what you were up to down below! (ooo that sounded so formal!)

  1. We love that nativity set! It’s nice to have a lazy week mid month because I imagine that the rest of the month will be a blur ๐Ÿ™‚ I feel your gray hair pain and feel like I’m a little paranoid about it after having a baby. I know I’ll have to do something about it if I keep finding them ๐Ÿ™‚


    • I heard the postpartum gray hairs may happen, but I wasn’t prepared for it. If it just sticks to a few here or there, that’s ok. But the gray hairs seemed to exponentially explode!

      That nativity set is so adorable! Elizabeth goes right to it every morning!


  2. Oh my gosh she does look so grown up! I had no idea there’s a little people nativity set – so fun. And your hair is looking fab!

    I need to be better about having lazy weeks/weekends sometimes… I guess that’s what Hendrik and I are doing this weekend since Peter will be busy interviewing future residency candidates tonight and ALLLLLL day tomorrow.


    • HA! Yes, that’s exactly why this week seemed more lazy. Every night husband has had something go late in the night. Either working or meetings. So instead of being productive, like I originally planned, I was lazy! It’s just funny thinking about how wonderfully productive I was last week compared to this week.

      The nativity set is so cool! Elizabeth loves it. I just really look forward to pulling it out every year.


  3. How sweet is little Miss?! I love her Little People Nativity. I will have to get one for my little bug next year. We are celebrating his first Christmas and I really look forward to.


  4. I love your new hairdo, Katie – so cute! ๐Ÿ™‚ I just got mine cut shoulder-length a few weeks ago, but I’m in the mood to put some layers in now. All the photos here in your post were fun to see, too! Have a good weekend!


    • Thank you, Colleen! I’ve had my hair cut this short before, but this time, for whatever reason, it’s working for me! In the past, I immediately regretted it.

      A few layers here and there are always a good idea, at least for my straight, thin, slippery hair! ๐Ÿ™‚

      Have a great weekend yourself!!
