weekend shenanigans

New Year Shenanigans

Guess who was up to ring in the New Year this year?! Me!!! Only because Zoe was up for a feeding. My goal was to sleep. She is such a party animal. But don’t worry, just because it is a New Year doesn’t mean I plan on changing any time soon….


Now that is out of the way, let’s have a proper weekend review, shall we? Even if it is late on a Tuesday. I never said I would have my shit together by now did I? Surely not. So this weekend….

Zoe made her first visit to Starbucks, she was clearly impressed.


While watching the Alabama game, I realized that I was sitting in the chair watching my daughter nap while petting Mac. The same chair that during the last game, I sat there and pet Mac knowing I was in full blown labor! It was surreal.


Zoe got to see the Tide roll over Washington and head to the championship!!! This is her touchdown Alabama pose!!!


I reflected back on 2016…



I had my first adult beverage since March of 2016.


And I got all teary eyed walking in to the nursery and seeing Chris feeding Zoe after work. This little girl LOVES her daddy!!!


I hope that you all had a wonderful New Years!!!

Linking up with Biana.

    Hooray for being up at Midnight this year, even though I know that you’d rather have been sleeping. And I love Zoe’s Alabama shirt and her little touchdown dance! So cute!

    Her lips in the touchdown picture – I can’t take it! She is so sweet! And the pic with her and Chris is the best. They clearly adore each other! Happy New Year!

    Zoe’s face in Starbucks is the best! She’s like, “um. I am so bored. This is overrated.”

    Glad you were up at midnight. I was not! #partypooper. I’m an old lady.

    The expression on her face in that picture of her with the paci is just too darn cute. Love the Starbucks trip. Seems like just yesterday mine was peeping over the counter for the first time and asking for hot chocolate and a cake pop.

    Chris feeding Zoe is the absolute cutest! She’s already a Daddy’s girl and I’m sure he’s head over heels for your lil princess which is so heart warming to see.
