Life + Mother's Day Recap

Happy Monday! 

I want to start off by sharing that we closed on our house on Friday and couldn't be happier to officially own what plans on being our forever home. We move this upcoming Friday and are very excited to start making it our own. The home is practically brand new so no big changes right away, but we definitely have a running list of things we'd like/need to do. And don't worry, I'll be blogging everything along the way so stay tuned for lots of before and after pictures!

When I picked Ben up from school Friday they had a manicure and pedicure station set up for the kids to do our nails. Ben did one and was over it, but man does my big toe look good.

Saturday morning was the usual donuts and we stopped by some garage sales. One of J's clients had a big event both Friday evening and Saturday so he spent lots of time helping with that which meant a frozen pizza picnic while watching Frozen.

While the kids repeated every.single.line I attempted to put boxes together and get some things packed, which is nearly impossible when this little goober insists on playing in the boxes.

Sunday we went to an early lunch with my family (where I failed to take any pics with my mom) and enjoyed the beautiful weather before the thunderstorms rolled in. 

I'm declaring the Moscow Mule my official summer drink. So light and refreshing.

Despite his best efforts, Jack just couldn't get settled in for a nap so we all snuggled on the couch while the rain came in. We had plans to travel to see J's family, but didn't want to risk it with the storms, which ended up being nothing.

And when the rain finally stopped, my boys continued with their yearly Mother's Day tradition of planting new flowers in the flower pots.


I hope you all have a wonderful week! Linking up with Biana for Weekending.

  5. It’s great that you’ve found the one that you'll shape up to be your dream home! With all the hustle and bustle of selling your old home and securing your new one, the week leading up to the move must’ve been hectic, to say the least. Anyway, I hope you’re quite settled in your new home by now. Good day!
