Fall for Thirty One

For us Thirty One consultants, this is an exciting time of year because the Fall/Winter line debuts....but for me personally, these 5 pieces pictured below are a little more special because I earned them. I set a goal and achieved it -thanks to all my loyal customers out there :)

And you see that big utility tote in St. Andrews Garden? (the red one)..shh, it's filled with my dirty laundry!

What summer is for...

Visiting the grandparents,
chasing fireflies & climbing trees

Chill Out

He makes me open the fridge open every day...not to eat, just to sit.

Happy Birthday Ben!

Ben,
I'm proud to be your mommy - You are my little man, growing more like your dad each day. Throwing away picture after picture because you refuse to use erasers and want it perfect, ack! Hopefully there's a bit of me somewhere in you, besides your brown eyes, heehee.

I'm am so proud of you for learning to swim this summer. I love watching you mature into a great athlete. You jump & climb on everything and never fall, it's kinda amazing.

Brinley & Bowen couldn't have asked for a better big brother, you are patient and kind (although a bit territorial lately) and smart because somehow the mess always ends up in Brinley's room, hmm.

Your favorite food is Special K Cinnamon Pecan flakes. You like cheese but will NOT eat it on burgers, or sandwiches and you love applesauce.

You would rather be home than anywhere else.

Your newfound Mario obsession might require an intervention.

No matter when you go to bed, you are up at the crack of dawn!

You wear your Star Wars shirt backwards every time so that you can see Yoda, who is printed on back.

I am so happy you still ask me to "snuggle" you each night...please never stop :)

You are a gift.


Happy Birthday my love,
Mommy

Party like Mario

We celebrated Ben's 6th birthday, Mario style, and it was a hot one!
I had a coin race planned, which was kind of a bust since the chocolate coins melted immediately! But the Yoshi egg toss (water balloons) was refreshing.
Happy Birthday Ben!
Btw, growing up is not a race and you can slow down any time ;-)

Summertime Blues

Yep, I've got 'em.
Between the storms and the sweltering heat we have been doing a lot of nothing, besides going to the library & grocery store. Even t-balls games have been cancelled :(

So, some evenings after the kids are in bed, Bryce & I sit outside and chat...this btw, truly intrigues Ben, who asked "what do ya'll do out there?" lol.

Well, one night we watched the lightening & snacked on cheddar rice cakes.

Summer Marriage Challenge - week 5

So...I'm late, what else is new?

That doesn't mean I haven't been admiring my husband...I just haven't penned my thoughts yet!

My husband is the most disciplined, dedicated person I know. I'm in awe of his focus and ability to achieve his goals, especially when it comes to cleaning the house. He works in circles around me!

He somehow comes home from work with energy to spare for jumping on the trampoline, playing dodgeball, wrestling - anything the kids want. He is an amazing daddy!

And he even has energy left over to give me some attention :)

Yep, I picked a good one.
