Wednesday: Chicken Chipotle Fettuccine is up tonight!
Thursday: LEFTOVER NIGHT!!!
Friday: We’re going OUT!
What I’m Reminiscing About:
My mama heart is still reminiscing about this day. The day we got our girl. As you can see, we’ve come a LONG way! Britt’s a super happy baby. She loves her family. She’s a great eater and sleeper (except naps..she’s not a fan…who needs to nap. ha!). Everyday we notice something she can now do and all five of us get excited about it. To see our past Bringing Home Britt posts…
What I’m Loving:
All the summer fun we’ve been having. This was a big trip to the grocery store complete with kiddos pushing kid carts and me forgetting my list. Remember me telling you about that Super Mom moment I had at Costco? Well, this trip would be the opposite of that. hahaha! As crazy as the grocery store run was…I LOVE having these people home with me.
Even though Britt’s face doesn’t show it, we’ve been loving hanging out with friends. The Shulls came over for a cookout/swimming last weekend. Again despite her look, Britt had fun and so did the other five. 🙂
What We’ve Been Up To:
Summer sports…this is the first year my big kids have played a summer sport. We’ve been having practices and games throughout the week. I’m a bit tired from the shuffling, but Nixon is having a blast. He can’t get enough sports so it’s perfect for him. The verdict on Ebby Lee and her summer sport is still out. 😉
And Miss Britt has been so stylish in all her new clothes.
On Saturday it was rainy and just a bit yucky in the morning. Tab suggested we take a little drive outside of town. He remembered someone mentioning this great catfish place. That’s just what we did. We took about an hour drive outside of town and found Stacy’s Catfish. (Growing up, I worked at a catfish restaurant on the lake so this place brought back so many memories!).
Britt refused the fried catfish so she enjoyed a squeezie pouch of spinach, peas, and pears. Sound delicious?
And because we couldn’t get enough of the selfies while everyone finished their food.
Fried catfish, fried shrimp, fried okra, french fries…do you see the theme? Definitely wasn’t the healthiest of meals, but it was so tasty! A little country dinner was just what we needed.
What I’m Dreading:
This is me. All day. Every day.
What I’m Working On:
Shay and I have been busy bees working at Mix and Match Travel. We’ve been busy planning trips for lots of you. (Cruises, Mexico, Disney World) The 2018 pricing for Walt Disney World just released so if you’re thinking of planning a trip in 2018, now is the time to reach out. Please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’d love to help plan a magical trip for your family.
What I’m Excited About:
All the Fourth of July festivities!
What I’m watching/reading:
This is me when I think about what comes on television TONIGHT!!!
You guys know I’m a big fan of Big Brother. Tonight is the premier and I can’t WAIT to watch!
When it comes to reading, I’ve been such a slacker. I never know when I’ll have enough time to finish a book so I’m just not even starting. My list of books to read is GROWING so I need to get on this. Maybe tomorrow? Big Brother is on tonight! 😉
What I’m Listening To:
We’re listening to all kinds of music. If we’re out back at the pool, then you better believe we have the speakers and music turned up!
What I’m Wearing:
I have three summer looks….
Look #1 Swimsuit and Coverup
Look #2 Workout Clothes
That’s pretty much what I’m sporting all summer long. Sometimes I combine two of the looks…like Monday evening at Ebby Lee’s game I looked like I’d just climbed out of the pool but I was wearing workout clothes. haha! That’s what summer’s all about. Right?
What I’m Doing This Weekend:
Lots of this, but imagine four kids jumping and splashing around in the water too.
What I’m Looking Forward to Next Month:
We have some fun summer things planned but lots more lazy summer days and nights. 🙂
See you on Friday for more Friday Favorites!
