Although I didn't snap a pic of myself this morning when my alarm went off, this pic of my mini from yesterday morning pretty much sums up my feelings exactly.
Today we're going to rewind to our last weekend of Summer.
Thursday GG spent a solid 5 minutes blowing herself kisses in the oven window :)
We spent the rest of Thursday hanging at home (it was rainy and ick!) and Friday it was Trunk Show time!
So many of y'all have commented that you love the ruffle pants, but on me.... not on you :) hahaha
I will take the compliment - but challenge you to try some ruffles! I always buy what I love.... and I love the ruffles. Do I look a little eccentric at times? Sure. But life is too short to wear anything but what you love. Soapbox rant over. hahaha
We spent the rest of Friday relaxing, playing in the backyard and folding laundry. #glamorous
Saturday morning Dave took the kids to do their Home Depot Kids Workshop project while I got the house ready to have some friends over for lunch. I'm sure all you mamas understand HOW MUCH you can get done when it's just you at home :) Can I get an Amen?!?!?!
After Home Depot they decided to run by the library and were surprised to find a new program called "Reading with Friends" going on. There were several "therapy dogs" there for the kids to interact with and read to.
Dave and I had a yellow lab before we got married (click HERE to see some cute puppy pics and even cuter baby Luke pics), and when I was about 35 weeks pregnant with Mason we made the decision to give her to a family who lived on an actual farm in a town about 30 minutes north from where we live. Cadence had TONS of energy and we just didn't have the time to devote to walking her, taking her to the park to swim, etc. like we did before we had kids. It was seriously one of the hardest decisions we've had to make - but in the end it was what was best for her. At some point, we would love to get a dog (I was THIIIIIIIIIS close at the beginning of summer to coming home with a puppy!), but right now we just don't have the time necessary.
So..... therapy dogs at the library once a month means I just bought myself a few more years :) hahaha
Saturday afternoon some sweet, sweet friends came by for lunch.... but I'm going to talk more about that tomorrow (or maybe Thursday). It was so fun it requires a post of it's own! :)
Saturday afternoon I busted out the ruffles AGAIN! I can't get enough! The cardigan is by MOTH and was from Anthropologie several years ago and I bought the tee on HauteLook last month. The brand is Go Couture, and there is a similar sweater HERE on Nordstrom rack.
Saturday night G took her regular sink bath and the boys got a big kick out of her antenna. :)
I'm going to miss when she doesn't fit in our sink anymore!!! (PS - Shay... when she outgrows my sink I'm bringing her over to yours, k? K.)
Mason hadn't napped at all on Saturday and it had been a busy, busy day and after a couple of meltdowns during an early dinner and then walking into the kitchen to find him sitting on my kitchen counter eating chili cheese fritos (he had dumped the entire bag out on the counter) I decided it was best for everyone that he just go to bed. It was 6:10 p.m.
Fast forward to 11:30... he's wide awake :) We snuggled in bed and watched a Paw Patrol and then he went back to bed after Dave got home from work. It was unexpected sweet time with my little monkey.
Our church has golf carts to shuttle people from their cars to the building and Mason LOVES our very favorite driver, Mr. Zakarian. :)
Yesterday I took zero pics. Well - other than the one of GG first thing in the morning. I got my driver's license renewed, we played in the sandbox, I TORE IT UP in UNO and I attempted to get organized for starting back to work.
If you missed it yesterday, there are super fun wishlists to look through so be sure to check them out HERE!
Have a FANTASTIC day, friends!!!
