Life With the Lees: Weekend Recap 2.27.17

It's Rodeo time here in Houston! Friday started off with this little cowgirl moseying off to her school parade.

We got home from school and cleaned up for our friends visiting the next day. I think I need to make this the weekly routine because I have loved having a super clean house this weekend! I headed to the grocery store after dinner. I enjoyed how calm the store was, but the 20 minute wait at the deli when only one person is working and the couple in front of you orders 12 different types of cheese was insane!

The kids helped put out some more Easter decorations. I got these eggs from Hobby Lobby last year on clearance and love them!

Trip and I got to work on making orange chocolate chip muffins. 

I've had a hard time sleeping, so I was up at 4:30 on Saturday and sat down to blog and catch up on some shows. 

I made a bow and added it to my Marshalls wreath, but I don't know if I love it. I feel like I need to add some greenery into the wreath or make the bow a lot bigger. Thoughts?

We made a French toast bake for brunch with friends. 

And I made some of Robert's favorite sandwiches. I'll be sharing recipes this spring!

I paired my blush shirt with my olive jacket, and we headed out to a car show. 

They had vintage tractors and military trucks. 

Of course she found a motorcycle!

I taught them about "slug bugs" or "punch buggies." I may regret this later...

It was a little chilly this weekend, but we had fun driving with the top down. 

Jeep hair, don't care!

Ari recently told me that her teacher said they will stop having nap time at school after spring break to prepare for kindergarten. Not sure how this one is going to handle that! 

When we got home, the boys went out for haircuts, and Ari got to teaching her animals their sight words.

Robert altered a little bike and turned it into a balance bike for Ari. He's hoping to have her riding training wheel free this summer. 

T got to making some origami after dinner.

After dinner, we sat down and watched the new Planet Earth series on BBC America. If your kids are super into animals or science, they'll really enjoy this show. The cinematography is amazing!

The kids hung out with their grandparents on Sunday while Robert and I ran errands and did chores. After lunch, the kids came home and FINALLY got to paint one of their toys from St. Nicholas! 

Scooter races ensued in the afternoon!

We wrapped up the weekend with homework, reading, and playing in box forts. I wish you a fun and easy week ahead! Come back tomorrow because I have a new exercise to add to your repertoire for tomorrow's Tuesday Training session. See you soon!


  1. Orange Chocolate Chip Muffins sound right up my alley. (haha "Allie"...I crack myself up) Look at you in your blush and olive...we must be on the same wave length my friend. Looks like a jam packed fun weekend. Happy Monday!

    1. They are so tasty- I'll share recipes soon! Thanks for stopping by!

  2. You guys had a great weekend! Except up that early on Saturday -eeeek, girl!!!

    1. I know- a few more weeks of steroids and then hopefully my sleep will be back to normal.

  3. I love that you are decorating for Easter already. Easter decorations always put me in such a spring time mood.

    1. It's so late this year, but it actually works out for us to enjoy the decor longer! I'm sharing all of my decorations this Friday. Definitely makes me hoppy! :)

  4. Your french toast bake looks super yummy! Have you shared the recipe on here?
