Life Lately

While we were out running a million errands last Monday, I told Elise if she was being good we would go get some ice cream.  The last errand she kept saying, "cream mom, cream" and was so excited.  We stopped by Wendy's and she could not have been happier.  Can't you tell?
We have a "Pot of Gold" set out with our decorations for March and it is filled with gold wrapped Kisses.  Elise likes to sneak them out and eat them. She had finished eating one and ended up looking like she had been beat up the way it smeared on her face!
Elise loves to dress up in Zack's coat when he gets home from school.  She starts to giggle and thinks she is so funny for doing it!  We were able to get a great smile out of her!

Saturday morning Elise and I headed out to a community rummage sale put on by a local elementary school and their PTA.  We found lots of cute clothes, mainly for baby boy but I got a few things for Miss Elise too. 

That afternoon Elise and I went swimming with our friends Sarah and Jane at the local high school's indoor pool.  I've been dying to get out of the house and do something out of the ordinary so this fit the bill.  We all had a blast, I think we'll try to do it a few more times while the weather is lousy outside!

Saturday night some of our friends invited us to go out with them to Buffalo Wild Wings.  We've been to this restaurant several times before but for some reason they were super slow with our food!!  All things considered, Elise was a champ and did great during the long wait and it was fun to just get out of the house and enjoy the company of our friends :) 

We came home from dinner and decided we needed some dessert!!  We got out the ice cream maker and decided to make Oreo Mint.  It turned out very yummy!!  We put Elise down and enjoyed our spoils while we watched another episode of Suits.

All in all, it was a great weekend!  This week Zack is on Spring Break but what that really means is that he has to buckle down and start to seriously study for his board exams.  As if he isn't busy enough studying, right?!
