Happy Friday Everyone!!!
I don't know about all of you, but I am SO READY for the weekend!!!
Parker has his first tee-ball game tomorrow and I'm really looking forward to it! My hubby is coaching the team full of 4-5 year olds....most of which have no interest in playing ball! They barely know the difference between 1st & 2nd base!! I'm sure it's gonna be a HOOT!!
Then on Sunday, the hubs & I leave for a little four day getaway to Chicago. It's actually a work trip for my husband, but I'm tagging along to keep him company & also to spend some quality time with him! I'm sure I'm gonna miss my babies, but I am looking forward to the one on one time! :) Have you all been to Chicago before?! Any tips for me....places I need to go....things I need to see?!
So, you know how I've jumped on the Instagram bandwagon?!
Well, I thought since I have all of these pictures to share, that I might as well do a little recap of my week & link up at Life Rearranged for InstaFriday!!! Makes sense, right?!
On Monday night, the weather was GORGEOUS here & we decided to hop in the car & go on a little drive! This first picture was of the evening sky that night....isn't is beautiful?!
We drove around for about an hour just looking at homes & enjoying the fresh breeze blowing in through our windows. Before heading back home we stopped at the Dairy Queen for a little treat!! Do you all see that ad in the top left corner of the menu for the Confetti Cake blizzard?! I love confetti cake....I wonder if it's any good?!
Have you all tried it?!
Once we got home & got the kiddos bathed & in bed, I turned on the TV & settled into my chair to watch one of my favorite shows right now....SMASH!! Are you all watching?!
Can you believe Ivy & Dev?!
Seriously?! I'm annoyed!!!
If you read this post earlier in the week, you know that we did all kinds of work out in our yard last weekend! In order to keep the kiddos cool & entertained, I ran out to Walmart & purchased them a little $17.00 plastic pool! I'm telling you, this maybe one of the best investments I've made in a long time!!
They have played in that pool every day this week!! The weather has been so hot here, I'm kinda bummed I didn't buy the bigger pool so that I could climb in with them to cool off! Ha!!
I LOVE this picture I took of Griffin laying on the coffee table one afternoon this week....
I know I shouldn't let him climb on/lay on the coffee table, but when I tell him to get off the table... he just looks at me, giggles, & then smiles that cute little smile! How could I get mad at that face?! This one....he's trouble I tell ya!
Tuesday night, my hubby took the kids over to my in-laws to mow their grass. For those of you who don't know, my children are obsessed with lawn mowers! They LIVE to mow grass! So, I decided to take advantage of the "me" time & head out to Walmart for some peaceful shopping. It's the simple things, ya know?!
To my surprise, I lucked out on finding some really cute knit dresses for just $9.88 a piece! Cute, comfy, & cheap....that's right up my alley!! Tuesday was May 1st & the beginning of the photo-a-day May challenge on Instagram. The theme that day was "peace." So I snapped a picture of me, at Walmart, WITHOUT the kiddos! Cuz shopping trips alone are pretty peaceful.....at least in my book they are!
This last pic is kinda random, but too pretty not to share...
This is one of my clematis' I having growing in the backyard! I just love that shade of purple!!
So pretty!! :)
Are you on Instagram?!
I'm loveoffamilyandhome if you wanna follow along!! I'm sure I'll be snapping pics at Parker's ball game tomorrow & lots & lots of pics of our trip to Chicago!!
I hope y'all have had great week!!
What plans do you have this this weekend?!
