Braden’s 7th Birthday Party


Braden, being the sweet boy that he is, made his birthday party planning incredibly easy on me this year.  He loved his Pokemon party last year so much, that he wanted to do the same thing over again.  I eventually convinced him to at least pick a different theme, so he decided on Skylanders.  He wanted everything else exactly the same though.  Easy peasy!


Braden is SEVEN!


I have this thing about birthdays – I think that for kids, they should be a big deal. We should go out of our way to make them feel so special and so loved on their big day. Thankfully both of my kids have summer birthdays so we don’t have to worry about going to school on their big day (what fun is that?!). I take the day off of work (Adam tries to, if his work schedule allows it) and we let the kids decide what they want to do, all day long. They decide where we go, what we do, what we eat, etc. They love it!


We’re Still Alive!

Well hello there strangers!  It’s been a while.  Things have been busy around here and I haven’t had a chance to sit down and write.  I’m going to try to catch y’all up on the big things that have been going on now so this may be a little long.  I promise lots of pictures and not too much yacking from me though!  Ready?


Mackenzie’s 3rd Birthday Party at MyGym

First, please forgive me if this post is a disjointed mess — I’m sitting in a Pokemon club with Braden and 10 other little boys.  It’s seriously hilarious how seriously they take their Pokemon cards, particularly since none of them seem to have any clue what is going on and the rules keep changing depending on.. I have no clue.


Mackenzie is Three!

I know I say this a lot, but I’m not sure how this happened. My sweet baby girl is growing up way too fast. Mackenzie is three and I feel like she should still be itty-bitty and all snuggled up in my lap.  Thankfully, she still loves to snuggle. I’ll be one sad mama the day my babies decide they’re too old to snuggle with me.


Braden’s Pokemon Party!

We celebrated Braden’s sixth birthday at home with a Pokemon Party!  Thanks to Netflix, he’s really into Pokemon.  Apparently though, Pokemon isn’t a big thing anymore?  Trying to find decorations and other party supplies to go with the theme was a bit difficult. I ended up ordering the invitations, cupcake toppers, and thank you bag toppers on Etsy.  Seriously, thank goodness for the crafty people on Etsy because without them, this would have been a not-quite-Pokemon party!


Let’s Catch Up

It’s been crazy around here and we’ve been busy, busy, busy.  Instead of bombarding you with a ton of little posts about the things we’ve been up to, I’m just going to share some pictures.  I could write lots about it, but I know when posts are this picture heavy (and long) I tend to just scroll, so I’ll save us all the time and try to be brief!


Friday Five

Oh my goodness, talk about a crazy week.  I have a huge deadline at work next week and it seems like it’s just one thing after another around here!  I have a million things I want to write about and absolutely NO time to do it, blah!  This weekend is going to be another crazy one — I have to work, do a million loads of laundry, run 20 miles, watch Florida State crush Miami, spend time with my cousin and her boyfriend (they’re in town for the Florida/Georgia game) and try to get things packed for the kids to spend a long weekend with Grandma and Grandpa while Adam and I head to Disney for the Wine and Dine half.  I can’t tell you how much I’m looking forward to arriving in Orlando, heading to Epcot, and relaxing with a nice, big glass of wine and some yummy treats!
