Coffee Talk

Everyone seemed to like the idea of us "having coffee together" last week so I thought I'd continue it this week.  Maybe I'll make it a link up or maybe not, I haven't decided, but if you want to "chat" leave me a link to your post so I can stop by.

Moms don't get sick days.  I went to bed all stuffed up and breathing out of my mouth, the worst.  I normally don't do NyQuil or anything of the sort because I'm still waking up with little people every so often and I hate to think that I'd sleep through them because I'm all doped up on cough syrup.  But last night?  I took that ish.  I slept amazing, thankfully both babes slept through the night.  When Kendall woke me up a little before 7 I thought I was on a different planet.  Holy guacamole.  I still feel like poo today, two days before Christmas, but we'll make the most of it.  I'd really like to pass out on the couch with my new Daydream Blanket but such is life.

I'm so bummed that I missed the SNL with Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake {my two favs, especially when they're together} this weekend.  I don't watch much TV these days so I never know when things like this are happening in advance so that I could set my DVR.  I woke up Sunday to everyone, and I mean everyone, on my social media feeds talking about how funny it was.  So now I just have to catch clips from The Today show and wait for a rerun.

We celebrated Christmas with Jimmy's side of the family last night and it was magical.  Watching Kendall's reaction to each and every gift she opened was the highlight of my night.  She opened a My Little Pony from Jimmy's aunt and said, "I could just cry for days!  This is SO SWEET!" and then I died a little.  I was also reminded how blessed we are. My in-laws are the most amazing, giving, sweet,warm, loving people on this planet and I am so so lucky to have married into this family. I spent Saturday with my grandma, icing our famous sugar cookies, and she hugged me and told me how thankful she was that I have the Dew family. They truly are special people.

Do you do a big New Years celebration?  I've never gone out, like to a bar or club or whatever, for New Years.  It's always been with a few people at someone's house, kid-friendly, and just good clean fun.  This year will be no different.  We are planning on going over to our friends house, maybe in PJs, and just being with our friends.  Christmas is all about family and I feel like New Years is all about friends, I like it that way.

I made two pizzas this weekend, a taco pizza Saturday night for dinner and a cold veggie pizza for Christmas yesterday.  We used to make Pizza Fridays a regular thing around here and I would experiment with the dough/crusts, toppings, sauces, etc. I think I finally found my favorite crust.  The refrigerated Pilsbury pizza dough.  Why didn't I think to buy this before?  My veggie pizza called for it and now I'm hooked.  All pizzas in this house will be made with it from now on.  Genius, no mixing, letting it rise, involved. Sold.

My house seriously looks like Toys R Us exploded in here, already.  Normally this type of thing sends me into a cleaning frenzy, I cannot stand messes, but today?  I'm OK with it. Maybe because I don't feel good and all I want to do is drink this coffee and lay on the couch or maybe because I know there is more to come {on Christmas} so why bother? Either way, Kendall is loving all 1,376,340 new My Little Pony toys and I'm loving watching her imagination.

So I saw that my friend Ashley posted a Best Moments in 2013 on her IG yesterday and naturally I had to do the same.  I think it's safe to say 2013 was all about Baby James Weston.  It's going to be a tough year to top.

  1. Seriously the stuff that Kendall says cracks me up. She's so little and then she says these totally grown up things! I have never actually gone out for NYE although my friends are trying to convince me this year. Yeah...no. I feel you on the state of my house too. Right now, I just don't care.

  4. No need to wait for reruns or only catching clips. You can view the entire SNL episode via Hulu (for free!). I missed it, too, but caught up on all the Fallon-JT amazingness courtesy of Hulu. It's also a great thing to enjoy while cuddled up in bed (speaking from experience). Enjoy!!

  6. I like the idea of this for a linkup. :) Speaking of, are you going to do "So what" Wednesday this week? Wasn't sure with New Year and all. I always said I would never be that parent who's living room is a toy room, but yep that's us! :) I wouldn't have it any other way! We went out to a club for NYE 2 years ago (pre Kennedy) it was a lot of fun but I don't think I would do it again, very crowded and lots of drunk stupid people to deal with. ;) I love the idea of a kid friendly party in pj's!!! :)

  7. Will have to try that pizza dough. I love making pizza at home but the dough part just kills me each and every time especially because my husband and son are so impatient.
