Happy Hump Day! Today's post is going to be a little bit of a "catch all" since Thursday and Fridays posts are going to be birthday posts for Mason and Griffin :) Excuse me while I go sob over baby pictures. hahaha
On Monday, Jack Bauer had surgery to remove his set of baby teeth (yes... he had a full set of puppy teeth that were yet to fall out on their own.... he'd lost a few, but couldn't close his mouth properly because of the two rows of teeth and so we had them removed) and be neutered and microchipped. Dave, Mason and Griffin dropped him off on Monday morning and the littles were SUPER excited to get to spend some time in our vet's "nature center"...
After school, Luke and I went to pick him up and he and I got to "enjoy" some time with the animals as well.... and by "enjoy" I mean not getting closer than 4 feet to the aquariums and watching the super creepy snakes. EWWWWWWWW!
As expected, Jack stole the vet techs hearts and was schmoozing everyone in the office for lots of kisses and snuggles. He's laying low, but is eating just fine with half the amount of teeth and hasn't messed with his stitches at all - so he's pretty much a rock star :)
On Monday night I was trying to get a video of GG saying "ewwwwwwwwwww" because it's the cutest thing EVER and instead I caught this...
I'm fairly certain we've watched it no less than 4 dozen times :) Griffin is a "woman of few words" and she has a handful that she uses consistently, so her stringing together a list of words she doesn't use on a regular basis was AWESOME!
Dave has been KILLING it with some awesome "Happy Morning" pictures for me :)
And last night I met up with some of my best girls for girl talk and some of THE BEST food ever!
We ate at a farm-to-table restaurant downtown McKinney called Harvest...
How awesome is their entry patio?!?!?!
We shared several entrees and appetizers and for me, the star of the show were these deviled eggs. If you're local you HAVE to try them!
But better than the food was the time with these girls. You wouldn't BELIEVE the topics we can cover in under two hours :) We make good use of our time! So so so grateful for a mid-week break with these friends!
(PS - the above photos are from the Harvest website... I wish I was so talented!)
I blogged about this cute shirt on Monday and I wore it yesterday and it was PERFECT with white linen pants. Look! You were so distracted by the cuteness that you didn't even notice the sink full of bath toys and half eaten english muffin :)
Next up, I'm part of a SUPER fun giveaway with some other great bloggers and we're giving away a $500 Nordstrom gift card! You can enter to win HERE and we'll be selecting a winner on Friday!
The giveaway got me thinking about what I'd buy with a $500 gift card and here are a few of my picks. Keep in mind I'm throwing out my practical side ;)
THESE sunglasses would be my go to all summer long. Pink glitter!!!
THESE espadrilles are totally speaking to me right now - the bows!!! And they're by UGG so I'm thinking they have to be comfy, right? :)
This top would be perfection for Texas summer...
And I love the color of this shirt for Spring!
ANDDDD.... if I had money to burn, you know that G would have to have this pair of kitty shoes :)
Also, there's a Matilda Jane promo going on right now - and you get this ruffle backpack for FREE when you spend $150. You can browse online and then send your wishlist to me (email@example.com) and firstname.lastname@example.org (she's the trunk keeper) and put Andrea M in as your Jane. Get your lists in my 10 pm tonight and grab a sweet bag for yourself of your girl!
Last up, I've been looking through lots of old pictures getting ready for birthday posts and came across this one from this time last year... look at my sweet baby girl!!!
