Friday Five

This week has been super busy for us but so good!


Father’s Day Weekend

We didn’t really have any specific plans, which is our favorite! I let B pick what we did since it was his weekend, and since Saturday was such a pretty day, we headed out to Bartrum Forest to go walk with Bryant. The trail was rocky and that really wasn’t fun with the stroller, so we didn’t make it too far.. but it was still a fun little outing for us!



Bryant is a little fish! He loves the water. My aunt and uncle moved to town last summer and got a house with a pool! We love going over to visit and I’m so glad Bryant likes swimming. He was practically jumping out of this float to get in the water!

House Groups: Week 2

On the menu this week was pizza. I tried my best to make it fancy : ) I absolutely love the picture of Bryant right in the middle of all the boys!! He loves having them all here and I’m thankful he has such a good group of guys to look up to!

Cousin Time!

My nephew Mack came to visit for a few days this week and it was so fun! Now that Bryant is more alert and not just a little blob, Mack is a lot more interested in him. I cannot wait to see them grow up together! I have such fond memories of me and my sisters and cousins running around and terrorizing our family, so I hope they have a similar experience!


7 Months

My baby turned 7 months old this week! He is getting so big and it feels like he changes every day. He is crawling now, and eating real food at all 3 meal times. He hasn’t outright hated any foods, but he especially loves avocado, squash and cantaloupe.

I am so grateful that I get to stay home with him and experience every stage of his life.

He is just so sweet and truly the best baby!


I had planned a post for yesterday, but then I was lazy, and then I was asleep. It happens.

 Thursday was a #basic day. Wake up, go to work, come home, clean the house. I have been dreaming of spring like crazy, so I spent a good chunk of time looking at new flowers and ways to spruce up the outside of our house. #springbaby

I was excited when my mom texted me to go to Waffle House with her and my dad. B was at the church working on our new sanctuary, so I was single for the night. I haven't hung out with Mother and Dad in a while, so it was nice to spend some spontaneous time together.

I tried waiting up on B, but 10:45 is about my limit on weeknights. I passed out on the couch and woke up when I heard him come in.

Today was a good day at work. We had a lot of fun in our classroom and our student teacher, Molly was back for the first time since Christmas. We just had a great day. And I was just in a good mood all day. I like days like that.

Tonight we're getting dinner with some friends we haven't seen in a while, and I'm really excited about that. January is long and cold and everyone is broke. It'll be good to have some fun together.

Closing thought: We have a front living room that is basically empty with the exception of our piano... I'm wanting to furnish it in the next couple of months and make a nice sitting room for guests or for me to sit and drink my coffee in the mornings. The walls are painted a pretty grey, so I'm thinking blue for the couch. I'm so excited!
