A DINNER TIME TRICK

Tuesday, May 16, 2017


Everyone has that busy weeknight where putting dinner on the table feels like more of a struggle than usual. Monday nights are those nights for us. Lia has ballet right in the middle of dinner time and then bedtime follows closely after.  Monday nights just aren't always a smooth night for us.

MOTHERS DAY

Monday, May 15, 2017


I hope all mama's got to wake up to breakfast and their babes yesterday! Mine brought me breakfast in bed but of course they wanted me to eat downstairs with them. No complaints here! I mean, there was bacon. I'll eat it anywhere!


THIS WEEK

Friday, May 12, 2017


Happy Friday! This week has been all about our floor remodel. We are so close to the end and we've got a dust covered house to prove it!

It's Mother's Day weekend! Do you have any plans for the weekend ahead? We're off to get passports for the whole family and we plan on wandering through Mayfest, a local festival filled with art and food. And, Lia has been so excited to plan a surprise for me so I'm really looking forward to seeing what she comes up with!


SWIM LESSONS

This wild boy started swim lessons this week. The water was ice cold and he wasn't crazy about having a stranger drag him into the middle of the ice cold pool.

THIS WEEK

It's Friday and Cinco de Mayo! Who's celebrating? We have family photos scheduled tonight and then we'll probably grab some local Mexican food for dinner. Simple and low-key, which is what we need after this week. 

Here's a fun fact for you - Cinco de Mayo is the celebration of the battle of Puebla (not Mexico's independence day, as many have believed) and M's family comes from the state of Puebla. We're making plans to visit this summer and I'm getting excited about indulging in some culture and history with these babes.Today was a little mental health day for our girl. We skipped our usual routine (sometimes we all need a day off from school - especially after rocking her school life with student of the month!) and did lunch and playtime with friends at Chick-Fil-A. It's unusually chilly today so we're taking a break from the pool.

FINDING OUR OWN MAGIC

Tuesday, May 2, 2017


I'm suffering from a classic case of vacation blues! Do you ever end a vacation with the blues?

We were so eager to get home to our babes but I think we'd have been just as happy to fly them over to us in Hawaii and live out our days in paradise!
