Soooo…it’s been quite some time since I posted a little update with our life happenings. Honestly, I’ve been working on this blog post for about three weeks. THREE WEEKS, you guys – but I never made it past my first two “favorites.” This little post has been sitting here with only three pictures, so the time came to actually finish it. I’m trying to be a better blogger…I really, really am…
About two months ago I packed up my big girl camera, a ladder, the kids and the hubs and together we ventured over to this pretty brick wall to take some family pictures. I’ve known since summer that I wanted to take our family photos at this location. It’s an old building near one of my favorite coffee shops and I just love, love, love everything about this spot. A little editing over on PicMonkey and Bam! Family photos are checked off the list! I’ll be sharing more about our photo session next week.
Real life with this little lady…
This was my attempt at taking a picture of our living room to post on the blog waaaay before December. I never did post anything.
See? I’m trying to blog!
This girl, I tell ya’ – she sure does keep me busy…and I love it!
Another Eliza Moment
We’ve never, up until just recently, had either one of our kids put stickers anywhere in our home except for on paper.
A couple months ago Henry and Eliza were going in and out of each other’s rooms at bedtime. Jon and I had already tucked them in for the night, but they apparently wanted to keep playing – they’re usually pretty good about going to bed, so we said, “Hey, why not?” So we let them stay up and party for a bit longer than usual.
And party they did.
Sometime in the middle of their kid craziness, Henry came out to the living room and told me Eliza was putting stickers on her “wall.” I didn’t remember giving her stickers and if she had found any, I just thought, “Eh, it’s probably just one or two stickers…it’s bedtime, I’ll take care of it after she falls asleep.” Besides, they were having a great time and – oh my gosh – the giggles coming from the hallway were ridiculously adorable! Henry then proceeded to come out to the living room a couple more times to inform me of the “sticker situation.” I told him not to worry about it and that it was finally time for bed.
The Real Housewives of Orange County ended and Mommy needed to head to bed, as well. I went to check on my babies sleeping in their rooms, when I walked into Eliza’s room to find this. I immediately started laughing…I wasn’t even upset, rather all I could think of was how true of a “parenting moment” it was. I’m happy I found it after she had fallen asleep, because I know I would’ve reacted differently had she been awake (nothing bad, just differently). I, instead, embraced this mess of stickers surrounding my sweet sleeping baby girl and laughed it off.
These are the days, right…
See my hair in that family photo up there at the top? ^^^ Welp, I knew I wanted to chop it off as soon as we had our family pictures taken.
Hair, as we all know, takes soooo long to grow so I knew I had to document the length while I still had it. However, not long after the pictures, I headed to a new local hair salon and told them to cut enough to be able to donate it.
It was the fastest hair cut ever and while I usually don’t care about my hair, I was in shock for about five seconds after it was cut…especially since it was chopped off so fast! I do believe it’s the shortest my hair has ever been and I’m kind of loving it.
P.S. No, I was not driving.
Holiday Home Tour
If you missed it, my Holiday Home Tour is up on the blog. I joined a bunch of awesome bloggers for their Holiday Home Tour Link Up and it’s been so much fun!
And finally this…
This meme describes me perfectly. LOL!
Thanks for stopping by and catching up! Happy Weekend!
Happy Friday! I hope you had a wonderful week. Our week was a tad looong. Both kids have been sick, sick, sick, but they seem to be feeling much better today….finally. 🙂 Jon and I are so happy to have our wild, little kiddos running around the house again! Let’s get to…
Happy FRIDAAAAY! The kids don’t have school today or Monday! Woohoo! Jon and I thought about going somewhere for a staycation, but considering the month of March will be extremely busy, we’ve opted to just stay home and you know what? I’m here for it! So far today I’ve cleaned for hours, gone for a…
It’s Friday and I, for one, am ecstatic! We’ve been busy around these parts and I’m longing for a somewhat low key weekend with Jon and the kids. Jon does have a CE class tomorrow which is about an hour out of town, but we get him to myself today and we’re heading to breakfast…
Welp, the kids have been in school for well over a month now and here I am, just now blogging about it! Better late than never, I suppose. I have about a gazillion back-to-school pictures, but I’ll play nice and only post fourteen of them. 😉 You guys, the first day of school was no…
Happy Friday (oops, it’s Saturday now), friends! Let’s talk Disney for my “Friday Favorites,” shall we? Let’s face it, when planning a trip to Disney one must accessorize. So I’m here today to share with you some Disney essentials from over on Amazon. About half of these items I had purchased for our most recent…
Hello Friends! Happy Friday to one and all! We’ve had a busy week over here, but it’s been a good one. Actually, the weeks are only going to become busier and busier until the kids get out of school in June. I’m trying to take it day by day. Does anyone else feel like May…
