Fashion Friday: An Everyday Look

An Everyday Look

Raspberry Fluff Jell-O

This jello I told you about yesterday and is so yummy!
It’s not your typical jello, it’s fluffy and softer than the molded jello.
Almost a mix between a jello and a pudding…
You will have to try it, it’s so nommy!

Weekend Recap

We had a really fun weekend as family…
My father in law came into town to see the kids and to watch Coop’s first baseball tournament of the season.
They won the tournament which was fun for Papa to see,
and the kids loved having him here to spend time with them!
Saturday was full of baseball, and then home for a yummy dinner that I made.
Since we were gone all day,
I made some easy to throw into the crockpot and when we got home the house smelled yummy
and it was ready for us to eat!…  SCORE!
I made one of my boys favorites, Cheesy Crockpot Mexican Chicken.

My love took care of me Saturday morning as I was up in the night with a migraine...  A donut and hot cup of French press with my devotional!  Love you, baby!

Sunday we took Papa to church with us…
I sat in the ‘family room’ with Kenley because she has been teething and I didn’t want to put her in the nursury.

Sitting in the 'family room' at church with this girl...  She melts me!

Then we took Papa out for Mexican food at our favorite ‘after church’ place for brunch.

Coop's Chimichanga...  He ate the WHOLE thing!!!

He got to play with the boys outside in the sunshine before heading home to Seattle.
The kids were sad he had to leave so soon.

I decided to do my weekly grocery shop on Sunday after our early dinner
and this picture popped up on my phone while shopping…
Thankful for an amazing husband who takes care of our babies for me.
So nice to do my shopping alone.  😉

Hope you all had an amazing weekend also!
Last night I made a Raspberry Fluff jello that was yummy…
Will post the recipe tomorrow!
Have a blessed week!

My Week

Things have been nonstop busy on the homefront as of late
and I couldn’t be more happy…  Or exhausted!  🙂
My days have been full and I enjoy being a mama and a wife so much!
Don’t get me wrong, it’s not always easy
and sometimes it’s really messy,
But I love so much where the Lord has us right now…
Even if I do have 9 loads of laundry sitting and waiting to be folded at the moment!
I will start to tackle that this afternoon while Kenz naps…  with a diet coke in hand!  HA

The boys have had 4 baseball practices a week, in different places and at different times,
but somehow we are managing to get them there and back and have dinner ready in the process.
All thanks to my amazing husband, that is!  🙂
I’m seriously not sure how I would do it without him!?!?!!

The boys started back at school this week after a really fun and relaxing Spring Break…
I’m not going to lie, it’s really nice to have them back at school…
Not for any other reason than to have the schedule back…
I like the consistency of a schedule everyday.
It helps me stay organized and everyone is happier knowing whats coming next,
if you know what I mean!  😉
I love the drive to and from dropping off and picking up from school…
It’s actually relaxing to me and it’s something I look forward to in my day!

Days with baby are long and busy…  Tiring at times, demanding at others.
She is at such a fun stage now.
She interacts with us and communicates.
She gets around well and is into everything which is cute but you have to watch her at every second.
She is teething which is adorable and miserable all at the same time!
It’s gut-wrenching to see her in pain but I love that I get to snuggle and comfort her.  :))

Tomorrow my hubs is watching Camden and Kenley while I go on an all day field trip with Cooper’s class.
Really looking forward to that time with him…
It’s always so fun to see your kids in their element with their friends, etc.
I also love that he still calls me mama in front of his friends and is
very excited that I’m going, instead of embarrassed.
In fact, he begged me to go on this trip…  It was so cute!  🙂
Can’t wait to post pics.

Here are a few iPhone pics I’ve snapped in the past week!
Hope you are all having an amazing and blessed week!  I can’t believe tomorrow is already Friday!!!
My father in law is coming to town this weekend to see the kids
and go to Coop’s baseball tournament…  It should be a fun time!
Very thankful he is willing and able to come and spend time with us.

Hope you all have a fun weekend also…
Can’t wait to update on the baseball tournament!  🙂

These loves fell asleep together last weekend and it was so cute… Melt a mama’s heart! :)

 

 

Her big brothers taught her how to brow out her mouth and she thought it'd be a good idea to do it while I was feeding her!  Ha
