10 on 10: December

ten on ten button

Actually, it's more like "5 on 10". I couldn't get my act together today and once I got going I forgot to take pictures! Oh well, something's better than nothing. 

I call this my "shelf of death". It's where my warm, yummy cups of coffee go to die. I'll be sitting in my chair with coffee and something/someone will need my attention and I'll get up and set my coffee here, only to get distracted and find my cup there some time later, cold and yucky.


Picking out my outfit for the day. I like to have several outfits with accessories ready to go so busy school mornings I can just grab and go without thinking! Funny story though: I had picked this outfit to wear, but right before I got dressed Owen needed my, ahem, attention and it made us run late for school. I ended up throwing on my Mickey Mouse sweatshirt and jeans to drop him off at school, and changed into this outfit later. Ha!

Skipping hours 9-12, housework, picked Owen up from school, lunch at Chick fil A with Ruth, Luke & Joel.

 mail arrives with my new necklace from the Splendor Shop! She had a great Black Friday sale and I got this hand made baby for $11 shipped. I've been waiting not so patiently for it to arrive!

Follow all that with the gym, dinner and A Curious George Christmas movie, and that's my day! Hopefully I can do an actual 10 pictures with next month's 10 on 10!

Instagram Dump

It's ridiculous how many times I sat down to put together this post! I often feel like a mom version of If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, or rather, my version, If You Give Danae a To-Do List.  I should do a post someday about the process of getting completely distracted from my current task to do another one. It's really quite funny.

It's been a few weeks since I've posted so I have a lot of pictures to share!

We've been to the library a couple times. Here's Austin when I took him to storytime while Owen was at school. He gets really into the hand motions of the songs, if you couldn't tell.

Actually sitting for story time! Success!

So glad the library has an outside play area, two train tables, and lots of toys (in addition to books, of course, ahem) that keep my boys happy and entertained and help them get some energy out!

Owen had his 4 year well check. Tall kid! 98%

I wore mustard + gray + white and loved it.

We got in the Thanksgiving spirit.

I took Owen on a date to see cousin Taylor in a play. He loved it and was so good, especially when he had his cousins there too!

Austy and I have enjoyed our 1 on 1 time while Owen's at school. Even if it does include standing in the toy isle at Target pushing the display toy buttons  938,494,836 times ;)


Tara snapped this picture of us Thanksgiving evening right while we were Black Friday shopping - our tradition continues! We hit Toys R Us a bit before 8pm, and then proceeded to shop at Target, Kohl's, Bath & Body Works and Walmart. I went to bed a bit before 4 the next morning. Totally worth it, got some great deals and wonderful sister time!

And, God bless him, Ryan let me sleep in and I woke up to my favorite Starbucks. Seriously, my guy is a keeper. 

Early morning Spider Men. This was before 7 in the morning. 

We along with the McFaddens went to see Zoolights. We all loved it, and bonus, I got some cuddle time with Austin while we watched a light show.

Last Friday night, me + a beer. And I don't even drink! It was a horrible, terrible, no good, very bad day. I don't want to talk about it ;) On a positive note, I'm loving having our tree up!

Saturday night we invited my in laws over for egg nog, hot chocolate, yummy treats, and Elf. It was a wonderful night, I hope we have many more nights like this!

Owen begged me for a gingerbread house this year!

And just when I thought my week couldn't get more eventful (more on that in a later post), Owen left the faucet on last night and it flooded the bathroom, hallway, etc. Ryan headed out to buy a wetvac and Doug came over to help us clean up. Friday nights are not good to us lately ;)
