Happy Friday, friends!!! Today is our weekly dose of random and I'm PUMPED about it!!!
I'm linking up again with Darci for Five on Friday

I'm a shorty.
I posted this picture of me and a couple of my former students who are now sophomores in high school and I got lots of comments asking me how tall I am :) hahaha Here's your answer - SHORT!
Just kidding - I think I'm about 5'3"... maybe 5'4"??? I have no clue. I couldn't even tell you the last time my height was measured. These girls are both tall and gorgeous AND wearing wedges while I was wearing flats :)

Diaper Bag Love.
Over the months, several of y'all have asked me about my diaper bag(s) and today I'm spilling the beans!
My go to bag is the Society Satchel by Petunia Pickle Bottom.
I like that it's unique, holds a ton and you can wear it several different ways.
Lateyl I've been wearing it "cross body" style.... but the selling feature to me was that you can use it like a backpack. I hate that I even typed those words.... but it's true. I LOVE me a backpack diaper bag. When you have multiple kids you are doing WAY too much to have to mess with a bag on your shoulder.
The other thing I LOVE about it is that it "clips" to my stroller (which I'll be talking about next week - because I get asked about it all the time!) using the Petunia Pickle bottom stroller clips.
I have the bag in "Chocolate Cherry"
Unfortunately, my patterns are discontinued... but the new line is JUST as adorable.
Key Lime Cake looks DELISH!
But I'm also loving the Plum Tart Cake as well.
It's definitely not a cheap bag... but I use mine 99% of the time, get tons of compliments and use it as a "non-diaper bag" all the time. If you have any questions about it, let me know!
If you want to see how much JUNK I can fit in mine... check out THIS post. If nothing else, it'll make you feel better about what's in your bag :)
Because I am a crazy person, I also have this PPB Sashay Satchel that I RARELY use. I am tempted to hoard it (because I am a crazy person), but I think I might be ready to part with it. hahaha
I paid $149 for it and will sell it for $80+ shipping. If you're interested... shoot me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org)

Breakfast Burritos - For Dinner!
After dinner last night, Luke told me that this was the best meal of his life. So I figured I better share :)
I scrambled some eggs, browned some sausage and threw some shredded cheese in a bowl. I gave each of the boys a tortilla (along with some oranges and yogurt) and let them assemble their own breakfast burrito.
They LOVED them and Griffin ate all the components just torn up on her tray. It was a crazy easy meal - and if it's half as big of a hit at your house as it was at mine your kids will be OVER THE MOON!!!

Fun with Friends!
We are making the absolute most of summer and today we spent the morning with some of our favorite people at one of our favorite places... the Perot Museum!
G is no longer happy to sit in her stroller and watch... she wants to be OUT and hangin' with the big kids.
After we saw all the exhibits, we headed outside to eat lunch in this little picnic/park area in front of the museum. Mason REALLY wanted to run in the water so I told him he could go and stick his "toes" in the water. About 45 seconds later, Shay and I see this...
Running free - no pants, no problems.
He then decided he wanted to "catch a pigeon" and decided to walk among the museum patrons enjoying their lunch. Pantless.
After a standoff with him (moms know what I'm talking about. I called him out of the water he gave me the stink eye. I went after him, he ran away. Repeat. A lot.) I took this FANTASTIC group picture. Please note how sweet and adorable Kensington looks and how my boys are having a fabulous time grabbing eachothers faces).
His shorts were SOAKED so putting them back on really wasn't an option. So I just went with it. What are you going to do. :)
Mason was mad at me for making him get out of the water and so he wanted to hold Miss Shay's hand. Holding your pantless son's hand in the middle of downtown Dallas is totally what friends are for, right? :)
I'm pretty sure the ladies behind us were taking his picture. I'm hoping they thought he belonged to Shay :)
Seriously though, we had the best time and laughed so hard. His shirt was completely fitting and we'll be back to the museum (with extra pants) soon :)

Tuesday we're sharing our Outdoor Spaces for my "Come on In" Link-Up series... and it's just the motivation I need to get out in my yard and wrap up a bunch of projects. Yes, I do yard work. hahaha My friends were laughing at me talking about ripping bushes out on Monday night - but it's true. :)
Here's a sneak peek of our "side yard" along with another project I'll be wrapping up this weekend :)
We also will be having pancakes with Woody and Jessie, attending the Home Depot Kids workshop and HOPEFULLY hitting up the pool. I have a girls night planned for Sunday with our Sunday School class and I'm REALLY hoping to have some time to read (a summer goal!)
Happy Almost Weekend!!! :)
