It’s been a while.

Testing, testing. Is this thing on?

So, it’s been a while since I last blogged. Like almost a quarter of a year.

Whoops.

I guess you can say we’ve been a little busy. Life. You know.

So here’s a few photos of what we’ve been up to. The biggest thing would probably have to be our kitchen remodel. I need to share a good post on that soon. It’s not done, but close. Let’s hope that I can get back on a regular blogging routine soon. Let’s see how this goes.

The kids, they are pretty cute.

I took Tucker and his buddy Luke on a night out for Luke’s birthday because we missed his party. They were fun.

  

I bought some flares, distressed & fun to wear.

We went to the fair with friends.

& bought 4-day passes for Disney. First up was Magic Kingdom, we have three more days of fun left to have.

I did fun things with my team, like attend opening day at the stadium to see the Astros.

& here’s the kitchen, or at least a sneaky peak of it.

We have five chickens now and get four to five eggs a day.

Our pool opened for business this weekend, I think spring break had something to do with it.

& this weekend we started building this. Every kid’s dream hideaway. I know I wish I had one growing up!

Timehop on Tuesday

 

I don’t know about you, but going back to work after a long weekend off is hard to do. Don’t get me wrong, I love my job & what I do. & I love having some time to soak up a little R&R with my family. But having to come back from that time with them and catch up on all that didn’t get done work-wise is the pits.

After we got home from me picking the kids up from school today, I set them up with a snack and Free Willy in the living room (they love watching movies in there, since their normal space to do this is the playroom) and I worked my heart out. Mike worked late today (also to catch up from the three day weekend) which made it easy for me to get some extra work done, too.

I finally wrapped up a little after 7 and decided I needed to veg for a few minutes. My go-tos during veg time are usually Instagram, Pinterest & Timehop. Well, today’s Timehop certainly hit the spot. It was filled with a ton of great memories and the most adorable pictures of my kids. I sure do love getting to take a little walk down memory lane on any given day. It also reminded me of this Memorial Day post that I had done last year. Just tell me you don’t agree?!

A picture is worth a thousand words…

…or so they say.

This one sure is.

December highlights.

  It’s been a little while, so I thought a little post highlighting our December was in order. I’ve recently decided to take at least one day a week to devote to “no work”. Things have been busy lately, we are in big growth mode and it feels like we are working non-stop. So, tonightContinue Reading

wiww: randomness.

I’ve still got a ton that I want to share about #inbound14, because this was just the tip of the iceberg. But first, I’ll have to find time to do write it all down. So, until then, I thought I’d share a little wiww because we all know how easy & fun these posts are.Continue Reading

One Apple watch versus another.

So, after the much anticipated announcement (by lots of others, I didn’t even know there was an announcement happening until something about it popped up in my feed yesterday) of the Apple iOS 6 phone, I saw that they also launched a new Apple watch. My dad has been wanting the Android version, I thinkContinue Reading

3 reasons why parenting is the hardest job.

Lawyers, doctors and rocket scientists don’t have anything on a mom or dad. Your jobs may be hard, but the hardest job anyone can have is that of a parent. Today we were supposed to be celebrating my husband for Father’s Day. He has to work tomorrow (seriously!?) so today was going to be hisContinue Reading

Feeling productive.

This three day weekend has me feeling productive. Mike’s mom watched the kids for us on Friday night and I woke up early Saturday (even with sleeping in a little) to clean the house before we headed out to pick up the kids for a bounce house birthday party for some friends. After the partyContinue Reading

Sunday morning ramblings..

It’s Sunday morning and I’m looking forward to a quiet day ahead, even though quiet is hard to come by in this house. Mike is working today, so the kids and I are starting the morning being lazy. It’s been a busy couple of days and there are a few things I need to doContinue Reading
