P.S. I was introduced to s'mores with starbursts this week and that is totally worthy of a shout out here as well ;) Somethin' 'bout that melted marshmallow, melted starburst and graham cracker that makes one killer combination for the taste buds. YUM!
Reading/Watching: I'm not reading anything for myself right now, shocker! Just reading to the kids and day dreaming about the day that I can spend at the spa/pool with a good book and no interruptions ;)
I finally finished The Bachelor (thank you, Hulu!) and I've got a long list of shows to catch up with on Netflix, but guys, I HAVE NO TIME! Add that to my day dream, a full evening of binge watching my shows and a tub full of calorie-less ice cream, ha ha! But Eric and I have been watching Fixer Upper and we are totally ready to take on our own fixer upper... HA!
Trying to: soak up the last days of Spring weather before it is hotter than you know what outside. We are playing outside as much as possible... I will be super envious of every one's gorgeous summer's when we are hiding inside to avoid the triple digit heat (but I'm not complaining too much after experiencing our first, gorgeous Arizona winter! It's worth it to endure the summer heat!)
Wishing: I could get my life together and cross everything off my to-do list! I will say that my kids have a routine, are happy, healthy and thriving and no one is starving at the end of the day, which is truly what matters most ;) I need to give myself grace as I know that life will fall into place a little more each day as time goes on, James grows and we get more sleep at night! I'm pretty sure if I could have cleaners come to my home weekly, that would be the answer to all of my problems though ;) I kid, I kid! Sorta.
But one thing at the top of my to-do list is update my blog and give it a bit of a face lift. The problem is, I've been in and out, but mostly out, of the blogging scene since James was born, that I don't know where to look for a designer (and my girl is not currently in business). Any recommendations?!
Excited for: I'm gonna be honest for a second and tell you that I've been super bummed since we got home from our California trip a couple weeks ago. We have NOTHING else planned for the rest of 2016 as far as vacations go, and I'm the kind of person that lives for vacations! I was feeling a little bummed about our lack of itinerary until Eric suggested making the most of our time here in Arizona. So, I'm excited to take on the challenge of making our time at home and Eric's days off, feel like a vacation even though we aren't actually going anywhere. I'm sure I'll try to sneak in a road trip here and there, but I'm excited to just enjoy the day to day moments with my people! I'm also crossing my fingers that we get more visitors in the coming months because it feels like a vacation when we have friends/family in town- hint, hint ;)
