Last night, Paul & I had a wonderful date night during in the mezzanine at @corkandforkpa. It was delightful. Highlights: an amazing house Manhattan to drink, crab ravioli, and tiramisu for dessert, all made from scratch in-house. I really hope they keep thriving, because it's so lovely to have a restaurant like this so close to home!! (This morning my stuffiness has taken over, so our dinner date was JUST in time!) via Instagram

Christmas Tree is decorated! Except for our nice capiz star topper, which is not lighting up, but I'll put it up there anyway if Paul can't fix it. Kids loved handing ornaments and changing bulbs, but wouldn't get in the picture, the stinkers. via Instagram

Got a small tree this year because it was so impressively dense and perfect otherwise. We'll decorate it tomorrow once the branches have had time to relax. Added bonus of small tree is having room to put it in the front window this year!! 🌲 via Instagram

They came out pretty great, other than a couple colors that didn't melt! I've been saving broken crayons for well over a year, and today was Use It Or Lose It day, so we used them! The kids helped peel crayons, break crayons, fill the molds, and pop them out! via Instagram

Paul says if I want a new Fitbit for Christmas I have to start actually going on runs again and I guess that makes a lot of sense. Gorgeous day today!! via Instagram

I did a solidly mediocre job giving Max a haircut tonight. I can do a straight buzz cut better, but I wanted to leave it longer on top, so here we are. It'll look decent in a week, and for now, it doesn't look *completely* awful, and I saved $14. via Instagram

After no-nap Max and general cabin fever got to be too much, we put on Lego Batman to get us through the late afternoon. I sure don't regret it when they're snuggled up so nicely together on the recliner! via Instagram

Keto avocado toast, with toasted cheese! Doing well with low carb this week, but I am still in the stage where I need to treat myself to the goodies I can eat to distract from what I'm not eating right now. 1 week down, 2ish more to go... #keto via Instagram

Leaving it all on the beach all week caught up to the kids today, so we've had a much more low-key day with less beach time and no swimming. The kids are feeling much better than they were this morning, and I think the adults are too. via Instagram

Max was all proud that he "won" by finishing his ice cream first πŸ˜‚ We did not explain that's because he had the smallest serving! Here, he has his two grubby little pointer finger taking to each other. We went out to celebrate PJ learning to ride her bike, because I say yes to any excuse for summer ice cream trips!! via Instagram
