Before I start in on our weekend... I am soooooooo beyond excited!!! The Manda Strong t-shirts are LIVE and they are AWESOME!!!
There is a "heathered gray" color that is available in adult sizes only and a navy option that is available in Youth XS - Youth XL as well as adult sizes.
The shirts are $15 and there is a flat $5 shipping fee per order (not per shirt). We'll be collecting orders on the website for 2 weeks and then the printer will print all of our shirts and they'll be shipped directly to you! Email your friends, share it on Facebook - SPREAD THE WORD!!! These would make fabulous Christmas gifts - so buy a bunch and give them to everyone on your list :)
I told y'all yesterday that our weekend was a whopper and I meant it! After Anna Grace left, Dave headed in to work and the boys wanted to paint the trucks they made at Home Depot earlier in the morning. I am ALL ABOUT the in-store projects, but we RARELY paint at the store. Not because I worry about them getting messy - but because logistically, how on earth are you supposed to get projects covered in wet paint home without getting paint all over your car?!?!?! I'm yet to figure it out - so we just paint when we get home.
After painting, all three kids had "quiet time" (aka nap time) and I had a moment :) Moms... y'all know what I'm talking about, right???
After naptime we picked up Gibi and headed to the most random pumpkin patch EVER. It legitimately was in the Target parking lot, but I had seen this super fun "Cars" area and knew the boys would get a big kick out of it.
Don't they look thrilled?!?! :) hahaha
It took them a minute to get over the fact that I made them leave their bags of Pirate Booty in the van.
We saw Fillmore...
I promise they were having fun. hahaha And can we talk about how sweet GG looks in the pic below?!?!?!
The kiddos got to climb into Mater...
GG was completely unsure of the hay...
And yes.... there were pumpkins too :) But after getting to climb in and on "Cars cars" pumpkins weren't super exciting.
Me and my crazy crew...
.. and one without the granny sunnies :)
Sunday morning our "group pic" went per the usual...
And after church GG was WAY too busy looking for her brothers to be bothered looking at the giant aquarium full of fish.
I have a feeling we'll be seeing a lot of this pose over the years :) I don't even want to think about Senior pics... but y'all know I love a good side-by-side and I think this pic will be pulled from the archives just for that. hahaha
We ate lunch, changed into sweats and took some serious naps. For reals.
Later in the afternoon Luke had soccer and Griffin was still napping, so Dave and the boys headed to the game and I stayed camped out in the family room with my stacks and stacks of papers and nilla wafers :)
Griffin woke up and she was the perfect grading assistant :)
I will say that I ended the weekend with all the laundry folded and put away, all the sheets washed and beds made and that giant mess of grading COMPLETE. Amen.
This week is Homecoming which pretty much means total craziness for me at school, so I knew I needed everything at home "together" since my school life would be nuts. :)
So... Happy Hump Day, friends!!! Monday was supposed to be the "What's On... Your Feet" link-up party, but my Manda post took precedent, so I'm moving it to tomorrow. So... get ready to share your current picks for shoes just in time for Fall!
