Blogging Again

 
How many times have I used this title?  I miss blogging.  There are so many post I have sat down to write and then I just get distracted by work.  UGH!!!  So today I thought what better way to start blogging again than to do a little Easter recap.
 
We dyed eggs, decorated cookies, had egg hunts and spent time with family.  Mostly importantly we went to church to celebrate our Risen Savior!

Friday night we had a flashlight egg hunt for the kids at home.  After dinner we hid all the eggs, turned out the lights, gave them each a flashlight and let them have at it.  They loved it and thought it was so fun.  I think this may be a new little tradition we do every year.

Saturday Landry and I went shopping while the boys went off to do their thing.  I think she has a thing for accessories.   


That afternoon we dyed eggs and Landry had a neighborhood friend over to decorate Easter cookies.  They are so sweet.

We decided to do church this year on Saturday afternoon.  The service was really good.


Easter Sunday we slept in, checked out our baskets, then headed to my parents to spend the day.

I have to say, Easter is by far my favorite holiday.  I hope you and your family had a blessed holiday as well.

Life Lately

Hey, hey, hey!  Today I'm sharing a little bit of our life lately.
 
I ended up making these Valentines with the kids for their friends.  Easy and fun.
 

 
Casey took over the box and came up with this awesome idea.  He and Colt did it together and I love how it came out.  Colt was so proud.
 
Saturday the weather was off the charts amazing here so we took the jeep out for the day.
 
Landry wants to play with play doh pretty much all day, every day.
 
Saturday night we rented Trolls.  I loved it and so did the kids.  We ended up watching it twice.
 
These two were so excited to get to school on valentine's day.  I wish every morning was this easy.
 
That's all I got.  I hope you are all having a great week!

Friday Favorites

Happy Friday!  We all know this is one of my favorite days of the week.
 
I'm linking up with the ladies here for Friday favorites.  Hop on over and check it out.
 
ONE
 
 
 
 
I received a Nordstrom gift card for my birthday and ordered this cute dress.  Love this brand and I love that it is on sale.  You can easily throw on a jean jacket when transitioning to spring and summer.
 
TWO
 
Out of the spin cycle
 
 
 
I have been slowly working my way through this devotional.  I say slowly because I do not want it to end.  It has been such a great and easy read for me during my quiet time.  There are 40 chapters/ daily devotionals and I have one more left.  If you are a mom I highly recommend this book.
 
THREE
 
 
 
I just ordered this adorable dress for Landry.  Love the sweet lace at the bottom.
 
FOUR
 
 
 
I ran across this quote on another blog and I saved it to my phone.  I think I have mentioned over the last few months work has been extremely stressful and there have been some changes.  Honestly there have been moments that I have felt mentally exhausted.  I love this reminder.
 
FIVE
 
 
 
I hate that my little man was sick this week but a favorite for myself was being able to take a few days off work to be at home with him and nurse him back to health, aka-wait on him hand and foot.  :)  I kid, I kid.
 
Have a wonderful weekend!

Valentine's Ideas

This year Colt's teacher is asking the kids to make their own Valentine's box or bag.  At first I thought it would be a fun project until I started looking online for ideas.
 
His idea of the perfect box:
 
 
What I actually think my crafting skills are capable of:
 
 
Hahahahaha
 
I heard that Hobby Lobby has kits for these and right now I am totally leaning in that direction.
 
For both my kiddos I like doing simple "homemade" cards.  Something easy but that we can do together.
 
I am thinking of these for Landry.
 
 
And these for my big guy.
 
 
I know there are a ton for free printables out there so hopefully that will make whatever we do easy.
 
I would love to hear any fun and affordable ideas and suggestions!

How Much

Hello friends! We have had some yucky germs hit our home this week and I was off work for a few days.  I sat down several times to blog and it got me thinking.  How much is too much?  And by that I mean sharing your life on the internet.  I have always used this little space to share about my family and while I love using it as a journal and love having it to look back at, lately I have been wondering how much I should really put out there.
 
I know I only have a handful of people that actually stop by and read and they are my family and close friends.  I have had ideas on the direction I could take this little space that don't include my family but do people really care what I have to share on celebrity gossip, my ideas on fashion, and what I'm currently loving.  Could I still blog about my family but not as much?  The problem I run into is that my life is my kids.  I could talk about them all day everyday.  I am really hoping to find that healthy mix. 
 
So today I wanted to share those ever so important deep thoughts.  Ha!  #firstworldproblems
 
Until next time friends!

38.  My birthday was this week and the week of celebrations have been so sweet.  My man took me out on a dinner date Saturday, my family took me to lunch Sunday, and then I was surprised with these beauties at work.  I felt so loved and spoiled.  #blessed


I hope you all have a wonderful and relaxing weekend!

Blog Slakcer

 
 
Hey..hey..hey!  Long time no talk.  I have been wanting to get back into blogging but have been such a slacker.  Work over the last few months has been crazy!! I'm hoping things are going to quiet down over the next few weeks and I can start showing this little space some love again.  I always think of the most random things I want to write about then I get busy and weeks go by.
 
So is anybody still out there?  Check back in on Friday, I hope to link up with Friday Favorites and also post some catch up items over the next few weeks.
 
Until then friends!
