A Week in the Life

Ready for more excuses? I have been gone all day everyday this week, and now that I am finally home and sitting at the computer I am finding it very difficult to let my creative juices and photoshop skills flow. Luna, however, has had a very busy week! I’ve gone a bit crazy with one of my photo editing apps during our nursing sessions, so why not share the photos and a peek into what it’s like to be a Luna baby!

In preparation for our December 5,k that was actually this morning, we finally began running this week. Look how happy this munchkin is to get up and run in freezing temps at 6:30am. Her smile is real…mine is forced. I still do not love running, but man does it feel good to get it done! Oh and BTW, she is wearing a pink and purple floral dress in this photo and 3 PEOPLE called her a boy that day. I mean, I know she’s bald, but come on, does the child have to have an enormous bow on her head? If so, I’m totally okay with that.

see what I mean? I got a little excited while playing on my PicsArt app.

Last year, we went to this adorable tree farm to pick out and chop down our very own Christmas tree! I was 100% sure it was going to be our new tradition and each and every year we would take a photo in front of our tree before chopping it down. Fast forward to now and uhhh, well, do we really have to make the hour drive to get a tree? Does Luna actually care? Could we maybe save a bit of money by getting our tree at Costco? Because, that’s exactly what we did. Picking our wrapped up tree out of the back of a semi didn’t exactly create an adorable kodak moment, but we saved at least $50 and 2 hours of driving. Maybe next year…

oh Christmas tree... Oh Christmas tree...
oh Christmas tree… Oh Christmas tree…

Luna and I got to volunteer at the Children’s Hospital and for NeedLink by packing tons of food for Holiday Food Deliveries. We may have gotten slightly distracted by the cutest little potato packer you ever did see!

I hope no one finds a nibble on potato in their sack.

Luna also had a really fun playdate this week with six other babies. I love watching her interact with other kids. They don’t exactly play together, they usually just take toys from each other and hit one another in the head, but it’s still so darn cute. They even made these precious little hand and footprint ornaments!

Baby's first Christmas!

And, we may have sneakily taken a first photo with Santa while Husband was not with us. Woops!

This morning we had our monthly race! This month we signed up for the Music City Christmas Run. Clearly, we sign up for these run because we are now obsessed with coordinating themed outfits, so this race we were snowflakes, and we rocked it. My goal was to have so much glitter that I would blind the other runners. I think it worked because I had my best time yet.

Go Team Snowflakes!

Under Luna’s layers she sported her own snowflake jumper and wrapped her stroller in snowflake lights.

ready, ready, ready, ready, ready to run
ready, ready, ready, ready, ready to run

I got 33rd overall, but the winner’s podium was left empty and unguarded sooooo…

We can always pretend to win!

After the race Luna was cranky, but Christmas carols were playing and I did the one trick that never fails…danced. Luna loves dancing with me! You have no idea how happy this makes me!

She can't help but smile. :)

Another monthly tradition is having breakfast and Starbucks after each race. We always go in full costume. We might the attention it draws, and we perhaps enjoy explaining to everyone that we just ran a race. We also maybe had a little too much fun with Luna and our costumes today…

oooooooh I can't wait to show you these one day

Thank God tomorrow is Sunday and we have ZERO plans. Wonder what next week will hold?

Cheers!
