LIFE LATELY

LIFE LATELY

WHAT WE'RE EATING:
If I'm being honest: loads of watermelon popsicles because I'm obsessed. However, we have cycled a few meals into the mix ;) and I even threw together a big snack tray for dinner last week, which was a total hit. Mom hack: when you host dinner outside on the patio or in the front yard, everyone thinks it's such a novelty they don't even care what they're eating. We've been mixing up where we eat lately (thanks to the beautiful weather!) and it's been SO fun.

I'm also loving the new Magnolia Table cookbook - so many amazing recipes and such a beautiful book to read. This is definitely one you want to buy and would make a fantastic mother's day gift!!!

WHAT I'M REMINISCING ABOUT:
Being pregnant! You guys, I was SO close to having a baby this time last year and as summer approaches, all the thoughts of having a newborn are flooding back. God bless hormon

WHAT I'M LOVING:
I just bought one of the BOGG bags and am so pumped to use it all summer. It's sturdy enough to put the baby in while I dress the kids at the Y after swimming and large enough to hold 3 beach towels and a change of clothes! 

WHAT WE'VE BEEN UP TO:
Collin has been SO busy speaking (killing it!), preschool is wrapping up and we're gearing up for a big vacation to Greece in a few weeks!! I've been busy shopping, stocking everyone up with summer clothes, and getting the back yard ready for lots of sunshine! We visited the farm last week, and have been outside non-stop!  

WHAT I'M DREADING:
The next 3 weeks of school ;) I'm SO over the hustle & bustle of early mornings and dragging everyone to school drop-off. Let's wrap this business up so I can start having coffee with Kathy Lee & Hoda again, please!! 

WHAT I'M WORKING ON:
Summer shirts are coming out NEXT FRIDAY! I've been working  hard to get these printed & ready for you guys and I can't WAIT to share them with you!!  

WHAT I'M EXCITED ABOUT:
GREECE! I'm equal parts nervous & excited to head out of the country but I know once I'm there, it'll be SO fun. So excited!! 

WHAT I'M WATCHING/READING:
Have barely turned the TV on in months other than for the tiny ones. However, we did watch Father of the Bride a few weeks ago and both loved watching it again. SUCH a classic. 

WHAT I'M LISTENING TO:
Well, we're listening to a lot of things, but 99% of it is coming out of our BELOVED Alexa. Such a game changer - we now own THREE and Baylor's got the new Kid Alexa at the top of his birthday list. I used to think "what's the big deal?!" until we bought one for the kitchen. It makes having music playing in the house almost mindless and has brought SO much life to our home! Also has functionalities like alarm clock, white noise, ordering last minute things on amazon (so you don't forget!) and my personal favorite: reading bed-time stories to the little people. YES! 

WHAT I'M WEARING:
I just bought these sandals, which I'll probably live in all summer. These jeans are another current favorite and I am loving these basic tanks from Target!! 

WHAT I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT MONTH:
Vacation, birthday parties (we're actually thinking about skipping a birthday party this year and doing an adventure instead... #legoland anyone?) and SUMMER! SO much to look forward to you guys!! AHH!! 

WHAT ELSE IS NEW:
Collin's newest book is launching in June, so that's very exciting! If you have kids who are athletes/performers, it is a MUST. SO many helpful tools! 

Have an excellent day!! XOXO
