Ten Days In

We’re BACK!!!

Mexico could not have been more good to us.  We had the most glorious weather, the beach was absolutely gorgeous, and the relaxation was amazing!  It was just what this mama needed.  Every time Tab and I get away without our kids I always think, “Why don’t we do this more often?”.  It’s just good for us to get time away but you know how it is with kids.  It takes a lot to make it happen…{THANK YOU, MOM!} which makes me even more thankful when it does.

Shay and I are TEN days into our Photo-A-Day Challenge on Instagram.  If you haven’t started participating now is the time!  Oftentimes I skip posting on Instagram because I can’t think of what to share, overthink sharing, and eventually talk myself out of it.  I’ve discussed this with MANY of you and realize many of you do the exact same thing.  It’s a great way to easily share a little of what’s going on with you and your family this month!  I’m telling you…you should join us! 

Just a little refresher, this is what we’re sharing this month…
You just share something related to the prompt and be sure to use #photoadaywitherikaandshay.  

A little recap of the Slaughter’s first ten days…

ME-I’m a wife, mom to four kids, daughter of the King, blogger, who spends her weekdays planning travel for Mix and Match Travel Agency and carpools kids to all the things in the afternoon/evenings.

MORNING-My Sunday morning was spent watching a Broncos’ win!  I have all the heart eyes for that cutie playing third base.

FAMILY-I had to go way back to Spring Break to find a picture of us all together, but these are my people…the five people who have the biggest pieces of my heart.  On the particular Monday I shared this picture, it just so happened someone overflowed the toilet.  Nothing is more Monday than an overflowed toilet.  Am I right?

BLACK AND WHITE-A favorite quote from the week.  This is SO ME!  Sad but it’s true.

FIVE-I doubled up and decided to share two of my favorites…my favorite FIVE-year-old and my favorite FIFTH grader.

I BOUGHT a little Mexico getaway for Andrew’s 40th Birthday!  Our resort was absolutely stunning!

FRIDAY-the very best way to spend a Friday has to be on a beach.

SUNSHINE-It was a bright, bright, bright sunshiney day!

MOM-God gave me one of THE best when he blessed me with my sweet mom.
9:00-I had a big old smile on my face because I was in bed before 9:30 p.m…yay!!  Anyone else get giddy about an early bedtime?  
Again, we’d LOVE for you to join us!  Hope to see you over on IG!

    Friendly tip – the first sentence needs to be changed to "Mexico could not have been better to us". "More good" is not a thing.
