how to relax on the weekend.

It’s been a week. A long, busy, productive, overwhelming, exciting, big week. I’ve been burning on all cylinders for the past 7 days and I’m bushed. Completely exhausted.

The big news is that I’m going to Mom 2.0 Summit in Houston next weekend! I’m beyond excited. The downside is that my house is a bit of a wreck, I’m frazzled, the kids are neglected, and I haven’t worked out once all week.




= ahhhhh…..

After? Madagascar 2 in bed, with the kids.

Stick around because tomorrow I have some fun Valentine surprises! And don’t forget to enter the lettergirl & sweet tweets giveaways before Midnight tomorrow.

Hello there! I'm Allison Czarnecki, founder + editor of Petit Elefant, a blog all about style on a budget for every part of your life: style / home / travel / family. I do a lot of how-to beauty + style tutorials, travel posts, easy recipes, home remodel projects, and cool DIY crafts you totally want to try. I'm super happily married (to a hot Polish immigrant) and am the mother of two kids, a daughter and son, all of whom are featured here on the regular. We live in the country but we're a little bit rock + roll. Welcome!

    SO stinking jealous! That is the one I really wanted to get to but it never came together. Learn lots so I can pick your brain later…

    And, yeah, eat lots of good Mexican food.

  2. KJ :

    Have fun at the summit. And enjoy that pellegrino–love it!

  3. Petit Elefant :

    Trying to remember it all,

    Thanks for the restaurant recommendation, I appreciate it!

    I will, and I’ll be thinking of you.

    I am with you this is just the same kind of week I have had! The boys are off to a sleep over so the girls at home are having lobster tails sparkling lemonaid and watching a girls movie.Oh and eating some of the boxes of chocolate from yesterdays show.

  5. Lizzie :

    Mmmm, I love Pellegrino.

  6. Kim :

    I am very excited for you to go to Mom 2.0 Summit! I was supposed to go, but my hubby found out he had to go out of town that same weekend for work. Argh. Have fun!!!

    Is that seriously your bathtub also? If so, I am extremely jealous!!

  7. Petit Elefant :


    I’m so bummed! We were supposed to meet and bond in Houston! I guess we’ll have to settle for Utah. :)

    No that’s not my bathtub, though I wish it were….
