Fourth of July Sales

How is the Fourth of July already tomorrow?! This year is absolutely flying by; it feels like we were just ringing in the New Year and now it’s time for fireworks, BBQ, and all things American. We are happy to be home celebrating the 4th with family so I’ll keep this short and sweet. I wanted to share some great sales going on with you all in case you have a few minutes to do some shopping! I’m grabbing some things for Bear especially since school will be starting before we know it with how fast the summer is going. Hope you all have a special Independence Day full of family, fun, and fireworks!

easter recap

I didn’t plan on doing an Easter recap on the blog because I haven’t done anything like it in a long time, but then I remembered why I started this blog in the first place. It’s always been a place to document what I love (mostly fashion, of course), and I don’t love anything more than I love my boys. I have these pictures on social media and in my phone, but it’s also special for me to have the blog as an online diary of sorts where I can look back on our memories all in one place.

Easter was a whirlwind for us- we went home on Friday (got to Sweetwater around 10pm), spent Saturday in Snyder with Zach’s family, went to church and had lunch with my family Sunday, then headed home and got to Houston around 10pm Sunday night. Although it was fast and furious and we spend most of the weekend in the car, it was such a sweet time that I’ll always remember. Both boys enjoyed hunting eggs and sadly I didn’t get any pictures of it, only videos, but they made out like bandits :). Sharing some snaps from the weekend below!
ps- Boone had fallen and scraped his chin on Thursday before we left hence the big red spot you’ll see in these pictures. It’s thankfully almost completely healed up now. Life with a 13 month old boy!

Zach’s family always does a big Easter celebration with lots of extended family, amazing food, and a full day of fun. His cousins Tyson and Riley Ann hosted this year and Riley goes over the top with everything she does (in the best way)- everything was so fun for the kids, and adults, and we were sad when the day was over.

Sunday was special, seeing my Mamaw with the boys and going to church with my parents and brother. We missed my big brother, Shane, and his family, as well as our cousins who couldn’t make it. But Bear and Boone didn’t mind getting all the eggs to themselves. We even dyed eggs this year, a tradition we used to do every Easter and one I want to start back up for the boys. Bear prefers his eggs plastic with something inside of them but he also thought it was so much fun to dye and decorate them. I was bad and didn’t do Easter baskets for the boys this year even though I fully intended to…so I’m thinking I’ll do a special “Summer Kit” for each of the boys when school is out. Things like sand castle building supplies, swimsuits, beach towels with their favorite characters (LEGO Movie for Bear and Baby Shark for Boone), etc. I’ll throw a few practical things in too like bug spray and sunscreen.

Speaking of, we are getting so excited for summer! I know a lot of parents dread it, but I actually love summertime. Getting to sleep in(ish) every day, going to the pool…just a constant feeling of “vacation” that I’ve always enjoyed.
Hope you all had a wonderful Easter!

happy valentine's day!

Happy Valentine’s Day, friends!! Whether you’re celebrating with your significant other, kids, girlfriends, or just your couch with Netflix and chocolates, I hope this day is a special one.

It’s no secret that I love holidays. I live for them really…the planning, the surprises, the CANDY, the festivities. The anticipation of the holiday itself is actually my favorite part and once it’s over, I’m already gearing up to plan the next. Is it too soon to be thinking about Easter? Because I’m already planning the boys’ Easter baskets and church outfits in my head.

Back to the holiday at hand…
I know Valentine’s Day gets a lot of flack for being a commercial holiday, but it doesn’t make me celebrate it any less. Z and I always go for a lunch date, followed by gifts when Bear gets home from school. Both boys are getting little toys they’re into, a book, and a shirt (around $20 total for each boy). Tonight, we’ll make homemade heart shaped pizzas, Bear’s favorite, and watch A Charlie Brown Valentine together in our jammies. I look forward to this day every year and I’m so happy it’s here!

Saturday is when I’m celebrating Galentine’s with some of my favorite ladies and I’m excited for that, too. Only downside is that I currently have pink eye in both eyes, which puts a damper on any plans. Bear had it first, who gave it to Boone, who gave it to me. The boys are better, thankfully, so that’s my main concern. They are happy, healthy, and ready for all the Valentine’s fun!
Happy Valentine’s Day to you and yours <3
