Weekend Roundup!

Monday, November 14, 2016

Hi Eveyone!

Talk about a great weekend.

Friday night was the Mr.'s playoff game in Clinton (3 hours away) so we opted not to go. Unfortunately for the team, they lost, but fortunately for my family, we get our daddy back and it will be nice to have him around more!

Saturday morning we headed to Norman for our first OU game ever! We found great deal on tickets, and Norman is only an hour away so we were happy to be able to go watch the Sooners WIN!

Ford and Sloane were very well behaved and seemed to have a wonderful time. We stayed until the end of the 3rd quarter which was way longer than we thought, so we were so glad we went!

Ford looked so cute in his OU hat :)

We had seats against a wall, which was the perfect place for us since the kids could wiggle around and not bother anyone.

We didnt realize how strong the sun was going to be shining on us, so that was the only thing we wish we had prepared for, it was in the 60's so I wore a long sleeve and black pants and was burning up! The kids were a little sun burned in the face, but nothing that a little sun block couldn't fix :)

Sunday was a big day in our family. We had the twins dedicated at church. It was the most beautiful experience, and goes to show how much God is watching over our family and making sure we live our lives by his word.

The twins received a gift from the church (a Chidren's Bible Story book) and a letter from our pastor. Sloane looked adorable in her special dress. 

We enjoyed some yummy cake after lunch from Wal-Mart that I had custom ordered.
It was not the colors I expected, but it got the point across :)

This past week has been quite the emotional roller-coaster but we now look forward to the future.

Hope you all have an amazing week, thanks for stopping by!

Weekend Recap

Monday, November 7, 2016

Hello Readers!

Thank you for stopping by. The kids are napping and I am watching WAGS: Miami. Is anyone else also addicted to this horrible trash TV?? I watch these shows about women with glamorous lifestyles and luxury homes/cars/vacations, and yet think they are the dumbest most ill-behaved people on the planet! It's like a train-wreck I can't stop watching...

Anyway, last weekend we had a low key Friday night in since the Mr. had an away game (which they WON!) and my friend came over to watch Bad Mom's with me. I liked some parts of it and thought it was kind of funny, but some of it was just crazy unrealistic and stereotypical. I would recommend watching it, but it wasn't my fav.

Saturday we headed to Dallas for a little family time and a funeral mass for a student's father who recently passed. The twins came with me, and it was quite a bit of work, but thankfully I had my niece helping me. I was sad to miss the SMU Homecoming parade which was also that day, but I figured there will always be a homecoming parade, and it was really important to me that I be at the mass. I saw my student for the first time in a year and a half. I feel so bad for them, but know that eventually they will be ok. 

We came back that evening, and I decided to leave them with the Mr. when I went to church on Sunday. The time change didn't affect us too much, and we had fun watching the Cowboys WIN for the 7th straight time!

I decided to do laundry yesterday, which I normally don't (I like to space it out throughout the week so I don't feel like I am doing it all at once) and I have plans for a yummy enchilada dinner tonight followed by the premiere of Vanderpump Rules, I am so pumped for this season! Again, I know I am addicted to bad reality TV, but I can't help it!

We also started watching Home Alone last night since we had some time to kill before bath time and the twins seemed to really enjoy it! I think it is because the music score is so good that it caught their attention, either way, the Mr. and I always watch that movie around Christmas time, so we are looking forward to watching it with the kids.

Now cheers to a busy week ahead, hope you all had a wonderful Monday and that you enjoyed stopping by!

Weekend Happenings

Tuesday, November 1, 2016

Hello Everyone!

I decided to do my weekend round up on a Tuesday because Halloween was last night and I wanted to include it in my post. 

Last Friday was the last home game of the season and Ada WON!

It was a very important win as they are now in the play-offs and the Mr. looks good as he is the offensive coordinator and they scored lots of points!

We went to the game for a bit and the kids had a great time running around.

Saturday we spent the day hanging out watching the SMU game, who also happened to WIN, and then we headed to OKC to have dinner with my in laws. We got back and watched OU beat Kansas which was also awesome.

Sunday we went to church and since S had a really cute Halloween dress I decided to have her wear it and Ford had to match to her :)

After their nap, we went to a trunk or treat at our neighbors church with her grandkids. It was really neat to see the kids amazed by the costumes. S was really into collecting the candy, but F wanted no part of the trick-or-treating, just the eating!

We finished off the weekend watching the Cowboys win against the Eagles, I guess you could say we had a WINNING weekend here in the Simmonds house!

Last night we finally dressed up and went trick-or-treating at our friends neighborhood. Ford was a golfer and Sloane was a lady bug (again).

There is a block of houses that are really big and usually they decorate and put scary props for trick-or-treaters, this house was especially in the spirit! S got really scared at one of the skeletons that popped out, she screamed crying!

This big house was not as scary, but still fun to visit. 

Once we trick-or-treated for about an hour, we came back home to pass out candy. Luckily there was still some kids coming by, cause there is nothing worse for a house full of toddlers than a bowl full of left over Halloween candy! This little girl came by and I was so impressed by her costume, she looked so cute!

Another busy week ahead, so I have to get back to it!

Thanks for stopping by,
