Before you get lost in the wonder that is my Instagram stream – I wanted to tell you that I hate mosquitoes and I hate that our crazy rainy/warm/cold/warm/hot weather seems to have created the perfect environment for them to thrive. Do not like.
This song, first thing in the morning means it’s going to be a good day.
Jack finds it impossible to take a normal photo lately. Right before this picture he tried to knock over the Statue of Liberty at Red Robin. Never a dull moment.
Liam loves the whipped cream at Spoonlickers, I could just get him a bowl of that with some sprinkles and I think he would be happy (and it would cost a whole lot less).
George, ever at my side, always ready to bark at whatever he sees out the window – a person walking, a bug, a dog 6 times his size – at eight years old he still acts like a puppy.
My favorite sight on our drive home – I’m going to miss seeing this on a daily basis.
Liam at his school music performance. They performed a bunch of songs but my favorite was their version of Rockin’ Frere Jacques where they must have been encouraged to dance however they wanted and my son threw horns like a good little AC/DC fan.
My boys and my dad – makes my heart happy.
We’ve rediscovered the park by our house thanks to house showings and needing to entertain ourselves with the dog in tow.
After wanting to do it for ages, I finally painted the door leading to our upstairs (from our kitchen) with chalkboard paint. It’s funny the things you do when trying to sell your house that you could have and should have done ages ago.
My birthday tribute to my sweetie – taken on Easter morning when he fell asleep while everyone else was hanging out in the living room – his ability to fall asleep in seconds and in the middle of chaos is admirable (if not slightly annoying).
Bayou Brownies – yes please.
I got to decorate my table for the last day of MOPS – proving I can sometimes be crafty given a deadline and opportunity.
One of my favorite things: Creamy Chicken Taquitos. This was a triple batch… perfect for making ahead and freezing.
See – the kid cannot make a nice face for the camera.
For some reason my kids love posing with sculptures, though I can’t get them to just hug each other and smile.
As good as his face will get for a picture.
I adore looking at Jack when he’s asleep – it’s so rare to catch him unguarded.
We’re also big fans of his sleeping in the car (and our own cheesiness).
My kick ball boys – a perfect Mother’s Day afternoon/evening at a local school playground and topped off with a visit to Spoonlickers for dinner. Doesn’t get better than that!
