Another year of ballet is in the books for our girl. She's pretty excited about the upcoming year since she'll finally be allowed to audition for parts in the recitals! 


The kids are at their grandparents house in North Carolina this week and I am staring down a long to-do catch up list and a quiet, empty week! The quietness is a little unnerving. I keep checking the time thinking I'll have to grab one kid from nap and the other from school! It's funny but as much as I am enjoying this little break, I also feel like I'm missing something. Two little somethings, to be exact!

With school ending, our floors being remodeled, and a slew of other home/business tasks, this month has completely gotten away from me. I'm not sure how it's about to be June! But, it is and summer is about to be in full swing so I thought it would be fun to recap the end of May and squeeze in all the moments I didn't get around to sharing and writing about.


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.


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!


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!


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.



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.


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!
