What I'm reminiscing about this week? Our anniversary date last year! We went to the Strawbale Winery and had the BEST time! Loved it so much we are going back there tomorrow to celebrate our six year anniversary!! :)

What I am loving? My new bedding!! Post all about it here

What we've been up to? Learning our ABCs!! Every morning when McCoy goes down for his nap, Merritt and I hook up his letter of the day on the alphabet train, then do a fun craft that begins with the letter! Along with that we watch a movie/cartoon, eat snacks, and read books that correspond with the letter of the day! Not sure if he is really learning the alphabet, but at least he is being "exposed!!"

What I'm working on? Now that the basement is all clean (post here!) I am working on organizing all my crafting supplies! Saw this idea on Pinterest and it really works great! love being able to see all my ribbon!

What I'm excited about? My new dish washer!! It's so shiny and new! I guess you know you are not a kid anymore when dish washers make you happy!

What I'm dreading? Washing dishes!! HAHA! Even though I am super excited for my new appliance, it doesn't change the fact that I LOATHE washing dishes! Are you with me?!?!

What I'm watching/reading? Deadwood! The Farmer and I are binge watching it every night after the kiddos are in bed! We have already watched the complete series and have it all on DVD, but it recently popped up on Amazon Prime and we couldn't resist watching it again! Wish it wouldn't have been cancelled! It's easily one of my favorite series!!

What I'm listening to? Pandora as always...lately either Cross Canadian Ragweed or Disney Radio!! :)

What I'm wearing? Back to yoga pants and t-shirts..Momma doesn't have time to wear real clothes!! :)

What I'm doing this weekend? Shopping trip!! I am going with my mom-in-law, and two sis-in laws on a little shopping getaway! Ikea and the outlets are on the top of the list! Can't wait! Stay tuned for my haul! :)

What I'm looking forward to next month? Going to Mississippi!! Yes, we were just there, but we are going back to see my nephew play football! Go Cade! We usually go a little later in September, but this year we are going the last week of August so we can be back in time for the start of Preschool, Sunday School, Kindermusik, and MOPS!! Busy Fall ahead!! :)

What else is new? Hmmm what's new?!?! Nothing really...just enjoying our last few weeks of flip flops, splash pads, pools, popsicles, grilling, and the slowness of summer!! :) Love an empty calendar!

Bonus Question: What will you miss most about Summer? Sleeping in!! My kiddos will sleep until 8:30 most days, so getting into our fall routine and waking up early is not something I'm looking forward to! hehe! We will also miss playing outside with The Farmer! The summer is a little more relaxed around the farm, and we love when "Daddy" is done with chores and comes up to play (sometimes play dead!) with us!! Sweet Summertime...



  1. Hi there! Just popped over from Mix and Match Family. Looks like your July has been busy but fun. Love that organizational tip for the ribbons...I really should try that out myself!

  2. How nice your kids sleep until 830!!!
