What we’re eating this week:
ALL THE COMFORT FOOD…hahahaha!
I asked each family member what they wanted to eat one night this week. Our meals will be ranging from soup to spaghetti to chicken. After sixteen days in China eating whatever we could find (I’m pretty picky but I was unaware before this trip)-I’m so happy to make a week of requests. 🙂
What I’m Reminiscing About:
I’m reminiscing about our China trip. I cannot wait to share all the pictures and stories with you. My summer plan is to blog three days a week during June and July. I’m going to use that extra free time to snuggle the babe. And then I’ll be back to my regularly scheduled programming in August. 🙂
I’ll make sure to let you know via Instagram when a new post is up so you don’t miss one. You can follow me on IG here or “slaughteren”.
What I’m Loving:
We stepped off the plane on Thursday evening to SUMMER in TEXAS! We’re LOVING it!
What We’ve Been Up To:
We’ve been enjoying seeing ALL THE FIRSTS through Britt’s eyes. She had a big weekend and got to experience her first swim in Texas, first fireworks, first Memorial Day, first visit to church, first burger off the grill, and much much more.
What I’m Dreading:
Nothing at the moment. 🙂
What I’m Working On:
I’m working on figuring out exactly what time we need to begin getting ready in order to make it on time and not be extremely early. This was us hanging out in car on Sunday morning-TWENTY minutes early to church. Trust me, that never happens for us!
What I’m Excited About:
I’m so excited about getting to share our adoption journey, our trip, and this sweet girl with you. Miss Britt is PRECIOUS. You guys are going to love her. I feel like I have ALL KINDS OF WORDS to share with you so I can’t wait to get those out!
What I’m watching/reading:
Guess how many books I packed for our trip?
Guess how many books I read on our trip?
Can you believe that? haha! Instead of reading, I was an I-Pad watching fool. Several friends had recommended some series and I pretended like it was my JOB to watch them all.
Southern Charm was recommended by a friend who loves the Real Housewives just as much as I do. It’s no secret I’m a Bravo fan and let me tell you-Southern Charm did not disappoint.
Big Little Lies is a mini-series based on a book by Liane Moriarty. Okay, I think we’ve discussed this before but I’d much prefer to read an R-rated scene rather than watch it. When reading it, I skim right over parts but if I’m watching I’m just kind of stuck. There were definitely some R-rated scenes in this one and let me tell you-they made me prefer the book for sure!
What I’m Listening To:
There’s just something about summer and country music that go hand in hand. Right?
What I’m Wearing:
I’m pretty long-waisted so typically a romper is not my jam, but I found this one that works! (Don’t pay too much attention to the picture. It appears like it’s too short but I’m totally blaming the baby for that. In real-life, I promise it wasn’t.) It was perfect for a Memorial Day party over the weekend.
What I’m Doing This Weekend:
We’ll be watching Miss Thing strut her stuff during her dance recital.
What I’m Looking Forward to Next Month:
Since we just got home from a big trip, we didn’t plan another big summer vacation. We’ll be spending our days by the pool, we’ll have play dates, and we’ll make some amazing memories as a family of SIX!
I want to say a huge THANK YOU to all of you for the sweet messages, texts, calls, e-mails, and most importantly the prayers. Trust me when I say-they were FELT. Thank you, ladies, so so much. I’ll see you Friday! XOXO
