Today I… Am finally back from vacation! Oh my goodness.. What an adventure! Traveling internationally is no joke! I am going to work hard on editing my pics as fast as possible so I can share with you guys. Prepare to be bombarded with photos!
Until then.. Wanted to share these funny sleeping pics of my babe. These got me through the 7.5 days I was away from her.
By the way, my husband is the creeper photographer who likes to snap photos of people sleeping. Ha! At first, it was just him.. Now, not gonna lie, I’ve joined in on this weird hobby. 😜
Are you super impressed that I’m blogging from Italy right now? (JK, I wrote these before I left..hehe)
Today, I…wanted to give a special “blog” toast to my BFF.
We have been friends since the 3rd grade (crazy, right!) We’ve been through so much together and I’m so glad that we stayed connected after all these years. Even though we are complete opposites, I appreciate everything about you..from your bubbly, crazy personality to the reflective, emotional girl I know you to be. You are an extremely loving person who always has the best intentions at heart. You’re also super creative and I hope you will constantly be passionate about following your passions in your new marriage as well as in life. Although marriage has its ups and downs, I encourage you to constantly invest in it because you won’t regret how happy you’ll be at the end of the day. It’s not everyday people can find the person they want to spend the rest of their lives with, so know you are truly blessed!
I love you dear friend.
Congratulations and welcome to the married club!
Also… In honor of my last day of school before summer break, my daughter practiced some writing at home. She would not let me take that pencil away!
Today I… Thought I’d share some pics of what’s been going on these past couple weeks. It’s been so crazy I’ve yet to post on this blog! Still going through all the pictures from my daughter’s birthday! Hope you all liked them! 😉
Here are some things we’ve been up to:
1) The hubs and I finally made it to dinner at Lawry’s! MMmm.. Prime rib is soooo good.
2) Swimming time with other babies! Fun!
3) The sis and future brother in law celebrated their engagement! I was able to play around with some chalk and I’m super happy with how they turned out!(minus the crepe picture…lol)
4) Spending time with her future BFF Brooklyn!
5) Family time! Love them sooo much!
TodayI, felt like crying when I looked back at all my daughter’s photos and saw how fast she’s grown!!! Ah, can somebody freeze time please!?!
I finally was able to compile ALL her photos from every month. Not the best job I could’ve done, but I’m happy with it. (Thanks to little baby garvin blog for the free chalkboard tiles!)
She just wouldn’t sit still during the 12 month photos. She was in a bad mood. Oh well! Here’s a better 12 month one:
Today I… Finally caught up on some rest! My life felt like a whirlwind these past 2 weeks. I randomly started teaching again which really couldn’t have come at a better time (yay, for saving money for a house!), but it’s been tough transitioning from being a stay-at-home mom for a year to a working mom. All you working moms out there.. I give you PROPS. So, I pretty much cried the first 3 days.. But getting used to the routine now. Here’s some pictures from the last couple weeks:
1) My classroom
Btw, teaching kinder is no joke! These kids have had 3 different teachers throughout the year so no sense of structure. It’s been rough, but amazing how comfortable they become with you.
2) Completed a seating chart for a good friend of mine
3) Witnessed 2 of my friends get married
I didn’t get a final picture of the seating chart (still hitting myself for that one), but found this pic on my friends Instagram! So proud of it. Congrats Mike and Arle once again!!
4) Party prepping was super fun, but exhausting!
More pics of my daughters first birthday to come! Honestly, I love party planning. I wish it could be my full time job!
5) Watched my husband’s softball team win the championship! (2 in a row baby!)
Today I… Have been working on some projects! Man oh man, I can’t wait to share them with you!!! I’ve been in crafting mode as of the past couple months. I don’t know what came over me, but I’ve been feeling very inspired… Especially around 10! That has been my time to shine!!
I haven’t been able to sleep before 2am… Which is crazy when you have a child who wakes you up at 6am sometimes.
Anyhow… Spring is here and I’ve been in a very happy mode.
Cheers ya’ll! Happy Friday!! (And I’m not just saying that bc I’m slightly buzzed right now.)
