We had such a fun 4th of July this year. Our whole family got together and it was so fun to see and hang out with all of our cousins. We went to the parade, swam at my parent’s house, ate some delicious food and then watched fireworks! It was the perfect 4th of July with my favorite people! My kids went straight through nap time and dropped by the end of the night. To me, that’s a sign of a good day. I hope you guys had a great 4th! Here are some photos from our day:

Happy…Tuesday. I have had to think about what day it is all morning. Does anyone else get super thrown off after a long weekend? I hope y’all had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend with your loved ones and spent some time remembering those who have given up their lives for our freedom. Our weekend was spent with close friends that we do not get to see very often which was the highlight of our week, and spent with family! It was a great time together and we were continuously reminded of our blessings.
Our Mother’s Day weekend was full of sweet moments, celebrations and countless reminders of our blessings. We got to see so many people and celebrate graduations, birthdays, mothers and grandmothers and watch our boy play t-ball! It was a pretty perfect weekend.
Is anyone else super last minute with their Easter baskets this year? Thank goodness for Amazon Prime! Am I right? Whatever did we do before it? I’m sharing a few things that I ordered for my littles that are really great things to put in any young kid’s basket. They are pretty much my “easter basket staples” every year. In addition to these, I add one or two of my kid’s favorite snacks and one or two things they need (like a sippy cup, pacifiers, socks, underwear, tees, etc.) It makes a pretty good basket. Plus, it really doesn’t take much to please kids. Bubbles alone would do the trick for my babies.
Happy Friday! I thought it would never get here! One of my favorite things about Saturdays are that we don’t have to get up and go first thing in the morning. I enjoy taking my time with my cup of coffee and staying in my pjs for most of the morning (if I’m lucky). This is the last weekend before Valentine’s day and I am going to be rushing around trying to get everything for my man, babies and their class parties. I’m also going to figure out our plans for the big day. We are all about keeping things casual, which is where this east outfit comes in. I am all about a good sweater, but this one takes the cake. Bell sleeves, pink and gray stripes and super soft material? Yes, yes and yes! I have officially found the perfect Valentine’s Day sweater!
Give me all the pink and red this Valentine’s day! These days, staying in and celebrating at home is much easier (and the way we prefer) because…kids. Normally by 7p.m. we are exhausted and ready to chill, so going out rarely sounds exciting. Just being honest, even if that does sound lame. I’ll take a romantic homemade dinner and Netflix over a crowded restaurant and forking out money for a babysitter any night. This Valentines day, we will be staying in, but whether you are going out on the town, to a fancy restaurant, or staying in your pjs, I have put together the most perfect and affordable Valentine outfits for you!
I can’t believe we are just 5 days away from Christmas! Are you ready? I have finished my shopping but still have a lot of wrapping to do! I also bought all the groceries for all the dishes we will make for our family parties and Christmas day! I am excited to try some new and some tried and true recipes this year. What I’m most looking forward to is time with family! So many of them we do not get to see often, and I am excited to catch up with everyone! Today, I am sharing some stocking stuffers for the woman in your life! If you select expedited shipping, it will get to you in time for Christmas Eve!

Holiday Traditions…everyone has them, and I love them! We have several in our family. Most of them were established by me and Ryan during our first Christmas as a married couple. Having traditions gives you something to look forward to every year. Maybe it’s opening a gift on Christmas eve or making a specific recipe every Christmas day. Whatever it is, it makes the holidays special and gives everyone something to look forward to all year!
