Summer Mini Session 2016

Thursday, August 11, 2016

A few weeks ago we had a mini session with Val from Grace Photos at a park nearby.  She was so good and got the boys giggling and smiling like crazy!  Here are the pics!


 I'm always so happy to have pictures of our family!

What's Hap-pinning Wednesday!

Wednesday, August 10, 2016

Hooray for Wednesday!  Mama's ready for a little babysitter/ Starbucks break!  

On Friday my parents, sister, and I went to Atlantic City for dinner and to see Josh Groban for my mom's birthday.  Our seats were so great and he was amazing!  

But AC- it's a weird crowd!  This lady in the bathroom was cra-zy! 

Weekends at the beach are so much fun and we've reached a point where the boys play so well when we're on the beach.  But the nights---they're tiring and the morning's are early.  After a long week-end at the beach we all have a beach hangover and it takes some time to recover!  

For the last 2 mornings Reid has refused to sit in his chair to eat and instead just screams and yells, "up me!"  Pretty much for the last 2 days he's been in my lap or screaming.  But then again, that's nothing too new!  

I finally ordered the brackets for our floating kitchen shelves and can't wait for them!  And hope to run to the West Elm outlet to check out this week's rugs and mirrors!  
And I'm on the backpack hunt for the boys.  I'm thinking Reid will be getting this one.  And I got a cute PB Kids one for Carter for $14.99 the other week and he's happy with that one, even though this Hershel bag is so tempting!  And really about 7 others are cute too!


It's back-to-school time and it's making me think about "what-if" I was returning to the classroom.  Since I resigned in the winter I don't have the option right now, but I am ready for a routine and think a lot about one day when I'll return to work, in some capacity,  Also being in AC on Friday made me think of a week-long sales meeting when I stayed there when I worked for AVEDA.  And it made me long for the care-free days with work friends and dinners on the company.  I know the grass is always greener but for now I will happily embrace our lazy, PJ mornings when we don't have to rush at all!
