Hey there friends! I just got back from a quick trip out to California to visit my son. I’m still trying to get back to reality and have been met with some super not so fun stuff (we had to have a guy come out to find a leak and fix it 🙁 ). Being in California with our oldest and his fiance, who made the trip with me, brought about all kinds of feels. So, please excuse me while I dump some of those on you today (I’ll throw in a few pics from my trip to make it pretty). Because, I find it therapeutic and maybe just maybe there is someone out there that is having some of the same feelings and will be encouraged to know that they are not alone!
I know, I know, you’re probably confused. You’re probably thinking “huh?? summer is just starting”. And, yes you’re right it is. But…how many summers to you have left with all of your kiddos?? The Nester wrote a post about this several years ago. It hit me right in the heart, and it continues to be true as each year passes and the summers become fewer and fewer.
Hey friends! I hope your weekend was great! And I hope that all you mama’s out there had a wonderful Mother’s Day! I had a great day relaxing and enjoying a little quiet time as well as a fun dinner out! I love being a mama to my four! A few weeks ago I shared that I took a couple of days off to spend with my mom. We had such a great visit! And, at her suggestion, we decided to visit the Pioneer Woman Mercantile, in Pawhuska, OK, which is about 45 minutes from where my mom lives. I have been wanting to go since it opened, but wanted to let the hype settle a little – really didn’t want to stand in line. 😉
You know that expression “In like a lion, out like a lamb”? Well, I totally feel like Spring has come in like a lion! I’m hopeful, if we can survive, that it will go out like a lamb, but I’m not too optimistic (about the lamb part – we will survive…ha!). I honestly can’t believe that the month is almost over! We have been busy, busy, busy with all things family. Of course, those are my favorite things to be busy with, but man, I need a nap…or more coffee.
Hey there friends! Last weekend we were able to check another thing off our bucket list! A visit to Magnolia Market at The Silos in Waco! If you’re a Fixer Upper fan then you might be a tad jealous (unless you’ve already been yourself), if you’re not then you might not know what I’m talking about. A few years back we visited their tiny store on Bosque street, and it was sweet and quaint and crowded. This store is about ten times the size, still sweet, and still crowded. Ha!! They have sweet workers everywhere ready to help you with anything you need, including snapping cute pictures for you so you don’t have to struggle with taking a selfie. (the struggle is real for us old people 😉 )
