How is it already 10 days into February and Valentine’s week?  Ay!  I am linking up today with Heather, etc. so go here to see more posts.  

Friday started off with this text message!  Teachers get to go in an hour late and then we adjusted our schedule.  It was a good day!


Just so you know, it doesn’t take much to get this in Kentucky!  I did slide on a patch of ice in my neighborhood, though.  And, just less than a week ago I was sitting on my patio in 60 degree weather!

I always wonder how much to tell about my boys’ lives on this ol’ blog.  I feel strongly that their story is theirs to tell and I rarely post anything on social media.  But, it is also my story to some degree.  Does anyone else struggle with this?  My son Mason applied and won a spot to compete for a local college scholarship competition.  Friday night was a Kentucky themed dinner for the scholars and their parents.  They had past winners speak at the dinner.  img_1560.jpg

He had to go back Saturday at 8:00 a.m. to do an essay, a discussion, and an interview.  It snowed a little bit more overnight so the morning was really pretty. 

I went to Kroger at 9 a.m.

Around 11, I visited my friend’s boutique to see her new stuff.  If you are local, The Prickly Pear is a great little gift and accessory shop. 

The parents had to be back at the competition at 2, so hub and I went to Hop Cat to watch part of the UK game before going back to the college.  I had a cider called Grand Mimosa and it really tasted like a mimosa. 

And, we enjoyed nachos. 

Mason had a great day and he thought he did well.  Then, Jack went to a party and the other three of us had take out Thai and watched a couple of silly shows. 

Sunday as I am writing this I have meal prepped, cleaned, done laundry, and I will be going out to Costco soon.  I hate going there but that is where we get dog food, laundry detergent, and stuff like that.  There are too many temptations and too many people!  

Our students have a four day week and then a four day weekend ahead.  I do not, unfortunately.  Friday is a teacher work day and Monday is parent teacher conferences.  

I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  What was your highlight?

  1. How exciting for your son, I wish him well! I share things about my boys that I know they wouldn’t mind but I know you have to find what works for you. I avoid Costco on the weekends if I can – actually I never really love going there because it’s always so busy but I do find weekdays are not as bad. Have a great week!

    1. Thank you! I don’t think they mind but I just respect their privacy, you know? They are not into social media! Costco was a nightmare because I didn’t go right when it opened. I try to go during week in the summer! Have a great day!


  2. Since I started my blog as a homeschooling blog I have shared so much about my boys but as they aged and started caring about what I might be sharing I have definitely started sharing less.. when I’m not sure if I should share something or not I usually just ask them if it’s OK and even show them which pictures I was thinking of using.

    1. Since I am such a new blogger I have always had teens! I think I would have shared a lot more had I blogged long ago. That is a good policy to ask. It is a fine line, though, isn’t it?


  3. I know what you mean about determining how much information to share. I definitely keep some things private and try to respect the kids with what I put on the blog. Congrats to your son for competing for that scholarship. It’s an exciting time in their lives, isn’t it? Have a wonderful week!

    1. I know! It’s hard – it is my life but it’s also theirs. My boys are not big on social media either. Thank you! I think the two most stressful times to have twins are zero-1 year old and now! Ahhhh!
