Happy Happenings

11 Aug

It was the first week of my new job! It’s been a fun change and I am enjoying it so far. My body is still trying to get used to waking up an hour earlier and driving further, but I’m sure I’ll get used to it in the next couple of weeks. I got to catch up on my sleep yesterday though. I slept 12 hours!! Woo hoo!

The drive to work may be longer, but the view isn’t bad…

This weekend was a fun and productive weekend. I finally got around to cleaning the office. I can finally see my desk!!

The hubby was busy this weekend building stuff for Little Mr. and mounting our T.V.’s on the wall. He built a toy box and put together a picnic table for him. He’s such a nice daddy!

TV mounted on wall

 

This is the TV in our living room. I strategically took the picture when the Cowboy’s logo was up on the screen. Don’t hate me; I’m from Dallas. Who else is excited for football season?!

This is the other TV that my hubs mounted in our son’s new play room. This pic was taken before he neatly tucked away all of the wires. Guess who’s favorite show was on? 😉

picnic table

 

Here’s Daddy hard at work putting the new picnic table together. This will be the perfect spot for snack time! You can also see Little Mr.’s toy screw driver. He wasn’t anywhere to be found though. Ha ha! Hopefully, he’ll be a good helper when he’s a little older.

I was really happy when my package of free stuff from Ivory came in. I won it from Influenster from the Ivory 2-in-1 challenge. Score!!

Last, but not least, here is my favorite picture of the weekend. Cuddle time with my little man. 🙂

I hope you had a great weekend with lots of happy happenings too! What was the highlight of your week or weekend?

Happy Happenings and a 4th of July Recap

5 Jul

How was your holiday yesterday? Ours was nice. We hung out with family and went to the pool for a bit. I tried out a new recipe for a Paleo coconut cream pie. I added berries to make it festive. It was pretty good even though I totally forgot to make the whipped cream topping. Whoopsies! Haha. Oh well,maybe next time I will add that layer instead of the berries. 😉 Here’s the recipe if you want to try it. It was pretty easy to make and tasted great! The only thing I regret is only getting one piece.

Paleo Coconut Cream Pie from Eat Nap Play

Passed out after a long day

This is what happened after our long day away from home. Little Mr. didn’t want to nap at his Auntie’s house, so he passed out on the way home. He’s so cute when he’s sleeping!

Paleo BLT Breakfast

Here’s another yummy recipe that I recently tried. It’s called the BLT breakfast. It was a nice rendition to the traditional bacon and eggs breakfast.

SLDesigns necklace

I’m excited to have won another Instagram giveaway for a beautiful necklace. This necklace is from SLDesigns. Their jewelry is unique and one of a kind. I’ve already added a few pieces to my Christmas list. It’s not too early, right? I think they may be having another giveaway soon, so be sure to follow them on Instagram if you’d like to win!

Make Your Own Coconut Water

I’m thrilled that Kellie from Nest of Posies featured my coconut water recipe on her blog recently. She added berries and took awesome pictures. Check out her post here. And here is my original post with the recipe.

Ahh, it’s time to relax and enjoy the weekend. It was great having yesterday off, but I was thinking it was Monday all day today. My days are all mixed up! So glad to have a couple more days off to unwind.  Cheers to the weekend!

How was your week and your 4th of July?

Hello, Monday…

1 Jul

Hello, Monday.

Why are you robbing me of my weekend? I don’t want to go back to work already!! It was a great weekend, and I just don’t won’t it to end. Wah!!! 😦

Don’t rob me of sunny days with my boys, playing outside and soaking up the sunshine…

Swinging Swimming

His favorite thing to do is get in and out of his pool. In and out! Hehe…it’s too cute!

The hubby and I finally got a date night. It was long overdue. We went to dinner and walk on the pier afterwards. It was a great time!

date night date night short ribs

I had the beef short ribs and the hubs had filet mignon. Sooooo yummy!!

We also finally watched Bridesmaids. It was hilariously embarrassing! It was hard to watch at times, but it had some really funny parts!

I am sad to see the weekend go, but at least this week is a short one. Yay 4th of July!

How was your weekend?

Hello Again, Monday.

17 Jun

Hello again, Monday. You sure do come around quickly! Why do the weekends have to be so short?

Even though it was a short one (and my little guy was teething and unhappy a lot of the time), we had a good one.

We played at the park on Friday and Saturday…

playing, park, grass, baby

outside, sunshine, park, grass, happy, baby

My little man really loves to be outside. Playing in the grass makes his day! 🙂

daddy, Father's day, baby, park, playing

He sure loves his daddy too! We spent the afternoon with my hubby’s family for Father’s Day. It was a nice day. 🙂

I don’t have high hopes of today being a nice day though. I have jury duty. Boo! I hope I get released early!!

I sure hope you are nice to me, Monday.

And, I sure hope today and the rest of the week flies by because I am really looking forward to meeting one of my bloggy friends from A Fox & A Wolf on Friday!

How is your Monday going so far? What do you have planned for this week, anything exciting?

Gender Reveal Party

12 Mar

On Sunday, we went to our friends’ gender reveal party. It was a great day for a shin dig! The weather was perfect for people to gather around outdoors. There was plenty of room to gather inside as well; they have the best house for entertaining with a big open kitchen and living area. The decor was great…pink and blue everything! There were even pink and blue drinks, pretzels, and deviled eggs. And, everyone was supposed to wear pink or blue depending on their guess. I cheated and wore both! HAHA!

We brought Little Mr. along, and he made a new friend…

She wanted to help push him around! So cute!!

gender reveal cake

The cake was adorable.

It's a girl!

It’s a GIRL!

The season’s are changing. I know three people who are pregnant with girls now. When I was pregnant, everyone was having boys. So weird how that happens!

I made the little girl a present as soon as I got home from the party…

crochet headband

It was only the second flower I’ve ever made. I like how it turned out with the teal headband. They are really fun to make!  If I had a girl, she would probably have a different color for every day of the week. 😉
