A Week In The Life, Vol 1.
Can’t believe the first weekend of 2022 is over!
We had the best week this week. We didn’t do much but just had such a nice holiday break at home. I am so sad it’s over. I have always felt sad at the end of christmas breaks, but man, this is on another level sad. I am not ready for Max to go back to school. I feel like that is the opposite of what most people say but I just want them all home with me.
The one thing I won’t miss was our weather. It was SO rainy, dark and gloomy nearly every day this week. It was terrible! Like the above picture was taken at 8am on monday morning. It looks like night time, it was so dark.
We were excited because we bought timed tickets online for the science center for monday morning. Once we got in, it was SO crowded, we instantly regretted it. I don’t know what we were thinking. Thankfully (?), we didn’t need to make the decision to leave because the fire alarm went off and everyone had to evacuate. It was nuts. So we ended up leaving.
We ran to the mall instead!
Went to nordstrom cafe as soon as they opened and got my favorite app! Haven’t had this in 2 years. I recreated it here.
Played a few rousing games of tic tac toe.
He loves it.
Saw the christmas decor in the city one last time.
We still haven’t got to ice skate… need to make it happen within the next few weeks!
Emilia is obsessed with her new jewelry!
She is also obsessed with her new “real makeup” as she calls it. She does her makeup everyday and is so proud!
My dad teaching max how to play chess on his new magnetic chess set.
And this one is still so edible.
Him and his delicious feet!
And delicious cheeks! I have never seen a baby love the bath as much as him.
Okay just one more.
Then it was new year’s eve!
I made this trashed up spinach artichoke dip which was amazing.
Grilled some ribs on the traeger!
Made espresso martinis.
Whyyyy is caesar salad so good?
NYE cookies for the kids.
But they couldn’t hang.
Not even Max, who has stayed up every year since he was 3!
Eddie made these banana pancakes on New Year’s morning.
And we went to see Sing 2 with friends. Oh my gosh it was SO good!
We can’t stop listening to the soundtrack.
Last week Jordan started to eat real food! Honestly he is not into it yet… ha! His face says it all.
This ornament on my mom’s tree from when I was Max’s age… eeeep.
Annnnd my favorite girl ever.
I can’t believe the holiday break is over. As usual, it FLEW! So bummed it’s over but looking forward to the new year. xoxoxo

Such cute kids and they have the cutest pajamas! So glad you are enjoying your children and are doing so many fun things with them. They do grow up so fast!
I was really pleased to see that you’re continuing with these posts Jess – even though it’s probably another layer of busyness that you don’t need, I really look forward to seeing what you and the kids are up to! And glad to hear that Sing 2 is great – I’ll go and see it soon with my 20yo daughter! 💙
I’ve been wondering if you had a Traeger! Can you please post recipes/ideas?
Whatever we make ALWAYS turns out amazing but I feel like we have one go to recipe for pork chops, Boston butt, salmon, chicken wings but would LOVE more ideas!
Can you please post a tutorial about how to create the messy bun? Because your daughter sports the casual-yet-chic hairdo of my dreams that this 38-year-old-self just CANNOT acheive on her own. LOL.
Happy new year! I dunno what is in that box (sliced cookies with frosting?) but YUM!
SO I’ll start by saying that I’m generally very wary of society’s superficial glorification of youth/agelessness, but Jessica when I saw the ornament photo with your name and ’89 on it, I didn’t read the caption and just went ahead assuming you are 33 years old. You are beautiful entirely apart from age, but it’s the buoyancy of your tone and energy that made this wholly believable for me! Thank you for being such a light on the internet always and especially in this time!
Big hugs from Ontario.
That spinach artichoke dip with rolls needs to make an appearance on the blog!
Agree it looks so good!
Love these posts! I do have to ask, where do you get your kids’ PJs? They’re always so fun and my kids need new ones!
They’re all getting too big, but Emilia really looks grown up all of a sudden. Thank you as always for sharing your sweet babies, along with awesome recipes (we have Covid in our house, so I’m making chicken tortellini soup!). Happy New Year, Jess <3
Aw, love these beautiful posts every week. Keep sharing the love, always.
