Friday Favorites: Back To Life!

We finally made it to Friday!!! Whoooooo...This has seemed like a super long week and since I feel like this

   it has made it all worse!! Small tidbit about me: My sinuses HATE me!! I get sinus infections all the time, but since I am super mom I refuse to go to the doctor!! or maybe they call that hard headed :)

Ok enough about my sinuses, let get to the good stuff! Since it's Friday, I am linking up with these three lovely ladies: AndreaErika, and Narci.

*Favorite Outfit: lets just say the last week my wardrobe has been far from fabulous!!! sweats and sweatshirts! I mean really how else are you suppose to dress when you are snowed in for a week???
believe me when I say it was pretty amazing!!!

*Favorite Jagger moment: playing!! I love when we get to play with this boy! just good ol playin' phones....just us and toys!! It is great and I will be so sad when the day comes that he thinks he is too old for toys!! He has a great imagination and I love to see what he can come up with to play!
At this point he was using the Imaginext castle as Grandpa's farm shed and all the characters lined up are Grandpa, Grandma and the farm hands!! It was hysterical! Jagger was Grandpa, Matthew was one of the farm hands, and I was Grandma!! We were cracking up! I love these sweet memories! ;)

*Favorite Hudson moment:  In the last few months Hudson has gotten to where he needs to be busy or he gets in trouble!! His attention span is not long so I am constantly having to find stuff for him to do! He loves to help! Help clean up. Help sweep. Help put clothes in laundry basket. Help put stuff in trash! He gets so proud of himself when he gets I took advantage and had this boy helping with laundry!!
I have a feeling there will be one day he doesn't want to help so I will have to pull this picture out to remind him!! ;)

*Favorite Family Moment: I normally try to have one night designated during the week that is strictly a family night! We cook supper and then watch a movie! These are some of my favorite nights because it is just us!! We don't have to go anywhere. We just relax and enjoy each other! Last night was our family night! We cooked homemade pizza and watch a movie I had picked up at our church library..Little Red Wagon! It's such a great family movie!
Matthew told us to say "cheese" and this is what he got! Hudson's face cracks me up!! He was saying Cheese! ;)

*Favorite snack:    Well my favorite time of the year is coming up! Spring!!! and guess what that means???? Easter Candy!!! Be still my heart! Easter Candy makes me so happy!!!! It is hands down the best candy of the year and some of it ONLY comes out at Easter! I picked up a bag of these and within about 5 minutes was thinking I made a mistake because they are so addicting!!
and don't forget all this other yummy stuff...

Hope everyone has a blessed day!!
Lots of love..

What I Am Wearing!!

Happy Wednesday!!! I was so excited that the sun came out yesterday! It instantly made my mood better! ;) What is it about sunshine that makes people happy! I am so ready for spring!

Well, I have a feeling my closet from this last week is going to disappoint! I only got one decent outfit out of the whole week because this is what I have been living in...

sweats, sweats, pjs, and more sweats!!!! ummm...yes that is sweats with rubber boots! Hey, its real life down here! ;)
and the one decent outfit...

I just threw on a plain white tee, brown boots, brown scarf, and my black leather jacket!! I was warm and I love the black and brown together!!

Hope everyone has a blessed day!!
Lots of love...

My Brain!

Well I am happy to say that our 1st day back on the grind went really well. I was worried being out of school for a week would throw us into a frenzy this morning. Jagger woke up in a great mood and was ready to go, but when Daddy got home at 4;30 we were all asleep!!! EVEN JAGGER!!! This child has not napped since he was 6 months old! ;)
I am doing something a little different today, but I borrowed the idea from my LLBFF(Long Lost Best Friend Forever) Jenny, You should totally check her out! She is pretty awesome and I have enjoyed becoming friends through the "blogland"!  On one of her posts she wrote what was going on in her brain for several hours during the day! It was cracking me up because my brain is nuts!!! I decided to take a piece of paper and write down every thought I had for about 1 hour! Mind you, we were snowed in so some of it is in reference to that!


*I really need to finish laundry.
*My kids are going stir crazy.
*Can we go back to bed?
*Hudson, why do you feed Hank everything you get your hands on????
*oooo..we are out of peanut butter!
*We need to win the lottery!
*Is winning the lottery a sin?
*Wonder what Heather and Tootie are up to??
*Probably still sleeping :)
*I am one lucky momma..

*I hate putting up clothes.
*Hudson, why do you dump everything, and I mean everything out??
*my kids are going stir crazy!

(forgot to put times down on the rest but it was within the next hour)

*It feels amazing to get chores done!!
*Sushi sounds awesome...
*My kids are going stir crazy.
*M-I-C-K-E-Y   M-O-U-S-E   Its the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse!
* Wonder if anyone has read my blog today?
* Chocolate cake sounds so good
*I'm sick of bills
*Wonder how Matthew is doing?
*I wish he could be home with us!
*I love him more than he will ever know!
*oooo. His birthday is soon!! I need some ideas for presents..
*Is it spring yet?
*I really want to online shop!
*Whoever invented juice boxes with straws should be hurt!!
*I miss my Megan's Daily Bread customers
*I really need to exercise.
*Thank you Jesus for this day and everything you have given me!

Well there it is... my brain in about 1 hour!!! Cracks me up! and I am almost positive I forgot some....
so is your brain constantly going or are you able to tone it down a little???

Hope everyone has a blessed day!!
Lots of love..

Grateful Heart: Doing Nothing!

It's Monday again (Don't you love that I remind you that every time like you don't already know!!), and so that means I am linking up with Emily at Ember Grey to talk about what we are grateful for!!!

 As many of you know, and if you don't then you have for sure been living in a pit underground, we have been snowed in for a week!! The kids have officially gone crazy...oh wait..I mean the parents! I have had a wonderful time with my kiddos but I am ready to get back in a routine! Even Jagger said he was ready to get back to school!!??
With all that being said, I am totally grateful for doing nothing!! I have enjoyed the days that we have had nothing!

It has been nice to slow down and enjoy each other even if we get bored a little. I love that we have HAD to spend time together! We have made memories this week that we might not have otherwise! So maybe this crazy weather hasn't been a horrible thing anyways!
The first couple of days we got to play outside, but then towards the end of the week it all froze, so it was just a sheet of ice and was too cold to go out! We spent a lot of time watching cartoons, EATING, watching cartoons, cuddling, napping, napping,

and when the kids were napping I would sneak in some bible study time or maybe a little Netflix action!!
Yes, there were times I thought we all might have a nervous breakdown, but I am oh, so grateful for this week/weekend of doing nothing!!!
Hope everyone has a blessed day!! Stay warm!
Lots of love...

Friday Favorites: Snowed In!!

I am so shocked that it is Friday and we have been "snowed in" all week long!!! Crazy! We have a lot of good times this week, but  I will say Jagger is starting to get stir crazy!!
Since it's Friday, I am linking up with these sweet girls to tell you my favorites: AndreaErika, and Narci

Favorite Food: Bang Bang Shrimp! and let me tell you this was HOT! If you don't want it to be so bang bang, then don't put so much chili sauce! Click Here for the recipe I used!!

Favorite Show: Gilmore Girls!! Yes...since we have been snowed in, I have been walking around with the Ipad watching Lorelai and Rory live their life!! 

Favorite Hudson moment: Hudson is not diggin the snow!! He just thinks this is a really cool week where his brother is home all day with us!!  We did take him sledding the other day and after about 5 minutes he was crying. I got in the car with him and he kept holding his hands out saying, ouch!! Too cold for him!!
and yesterday I found them both in Hudson's crib! They were totally having a "brother" moment, and it made me want to bawl my eyes out!

Favorite Jagger moment: just all the laughs this week! This boy has had a blast in the snow!! He did tell me yesterday that he did want anymore snow days because they would have to go to school the rest of his life to make them up!! ;) Yes, It will probably feel like that!

Favorite outfit: I loved the way the pink sweater turned out with the black jeans, and brown boots!!
and since we are talking about snow here are some of my favorite e-card/meme things...

Hope everyone has a super blessed day!!
Lot of love..

What I am Wearing and Snow Day Photo Dump!!! ;)

Well we are having another snow day, but at least the sun is shining! I am so over winter! Bring on spring and summer!!
I am going to do the normal What I am wearing but at the end will be a huge photo dump from our snow day!! We have had so much fun playing in the snow the last two days! I have so enjoyed the laughter that has been shared with family and "our peoples"! Let's get started!!

Here is what my closet has been up to the last week!! I wore pjs and snow clothes 3 days, so I really didn't think y'all would be too interested in that! ;)

I was itching to wear something red since it was getting close to Valentines Day! I had a red sweater, but by itself it was boring and plus it was freezing outside! The only answer....layer!! The denim shirt has small white polka dots on it! I thought it turned out really cute under the red!! and I stayed warm! ;)
 Friday: I had Jagger's Valentine party at school and lots of errands to run, so I wanted to be warm but comfy! I have had this light pink sweater for several years, but don't wear that much! I was wanting to do pink instead of red since I wore red the day before! I threw it on with black jeans, brown boots, and pearls!! This was one of my favorite outfits!!
  Valentines Day: The only thing we had planned for Valentines' Day was our girl, Tootie's 4th Birthday! I had this sweatshirt with hearts on it that I had been saving for Valentine's Day! Super comfy!!!!
 Sunday: FREEZING!!!!! Layers people! Its the only way to go! :) My favorite vest and a red plaid scarf made being outside bearable!!!

That's all my closet has for you today! Hope you can find a little inspiration! ;)
Time for the snow day photo dump!

Hope everyone has a blessed day!! Stay Warm and be Safe!!!
Lots of love...
