Tuesday's To Do List..

Usually my monday consists of laundry, cleaning and getting random things done around the house.  Then when Tuesday comes I can run errands knowing that all my to-do list at home is all done. Today, I ran errands and my kids made it known that they didn't care to be my errand buddies.  Tantrums and crying fits happened. Yep.. both kids took turns... but we all survived and had cinnamon french toast for dinner and that made it all better.  It really amazes me how exhausted I can feel after running like 5 errands with two kids...

Sunday's around here..

I'm in Utah right now visiting family. The weather here has been HEAVENLY! We spent the morning at church and are now relaxing with a little bit of March Madness and eating strawberry shortcake on the porch outside. I love Sunday's in Utah.. Everyone comes home from school and it is a lot of fun to talk and enjoy each other's company.  I didn't realize that General Conference falls on Easter until I arrived at Church today.  So our "Easter Dress's" are what we wore to church today I guess!  Had to snap a few pictures to look back on! 
 My Outfit:
Dress: Eleventh Avenue ($10!) 
((It is soooo comfy and even though my sisters told me they didn't like it.. I bought it anyways and I am in love with it! I couldn't find my same dress online.. but I did find another color right here. The brand is Janette Fashions and I found a website that sells the same ones just different fabric right here))

Memory Lane

I pulled out my sisters hair waver and it flooded memories of my Junior High and High School days.  I used to wear my hair like this alllll the time.  Seriously. Not sure if I will keep doing it, but it was sure fun to relive those days in my memories every time I looked in the mirror.

Sunday Walks

I took a little walk with some of my family today.  This weather is HEAVENLY!! I used an old hiking backpack to carry Carly and I was surprised at how comfortable it still is.  I love that my parents have kept so many of their old toys and items from my childhood.  They are my favorite things to use.. They last sooo much longer and are so much better than a lot of products I buy today for my kids.

Today has been a great day. We have been playing hard the past few days and nothing beats a relaxing Sunday.  It was just what we needed to start our week off right!

Twinning is Winning

Socks: Old Navy

My Outfit:
Shirt: Osh Kosh
Pants: Cello Brand via Ross (similar)
Shoes: Vans
Watch: Fossil 

I discovered that the baby stores (Carter's & Osh Kosh) carry sizes up to 12 or 14 girls, which is around a women's size small.  So when I found a shirt I loved for her, naturally I needed one to match.  I hope she doesn't grow out of the matching phase too soon because I loveeee dressing to match my kids!

4 Eyes

I've worn glasses since 5th Grade. I remember the moment I found out I actually needed them. I was on a road trip with my family and my cousin was sitting in the car next to me. She wore glasses and took them off to take a nap. I picked them up to just try them on for fun.. I realized that I could actually see the trees on the mountains that were a few miles away and everything was so clear!  I love getting my prescription updated because I always get that same feeling again.  Everything is so clear and I can see so well!  Firmoo sent me these new glasses last week and I am so happy with them! 
(I ordered these ones right here)

I was a little bit worried about ordering glasses off the internet but it turned out to be way easier than I thought it would be.  So, if you are in the market for glasses, prescription or not, I would recommend checking out Firmoo.  

Thanks Firmoo for the glasses! I love them!

An Off Week

This week hasn't gone like I had planned.  On Sundays, I make a list of things I plan on getting done that upcoming week and throughout the week I get my list all completed.  Unfortunately, I have come down with a cold and my list has just been pushed to the back burner. So, I'm a behind on pretty much everything, but it's okay because I have slowed down and just spent time with my kids.

   It has been kinda tough being sick and not having Andy around. It is a test week for him, so he hasn't been around to help me, but luckily my kids are okay with lots of snuggling on the couch and watching movies with me. I feel like kids get sick pretty often and when my kids get sick, I always feel bad for them, but when I get sick, it really hits me how crappy they really feel. I'm glad February is almost over.. just a few more weeks of cold weather hopefully.

The Struggle is Real...

Have you seen those shirts that say "the struggle is real"?  I need one of those. Everyday I walk into my closet to get dressed and all I want to put on is my yoga pants .  It really is a struggle to actually put effort into my clothing choices somedays.  It is easy for me to get my kids out of their pajamas each day and dressed cute but when it comes to putting the same amount of work into me.. well, it becomes work.  Hope someone else understands what I'm talking about!

Sunday Style

I've been combing through my closet trying to find things I haven't worn in a while.  I feel like I have a few go-to outfits and those go on repeat.  I love the lace on this dress and when I pulled it out of the back of my closet, it was hard to remember why I haven't worn it in so long. Although it is tough getting us all out the door to Church in the morning.. It is really nice to have the whole rest of the day to relax and spend time together.  I woke up with a slight cold so the idea that we had nothing to do but relax was needed.

Friday Favorites.. T-Shirt Edition

I would say the shopping in my current town is not great.  We have a few stores but nothing to come visit town over. If I get the chance to shop, it is mostly done online.  With summer quickly approaching and the nice weather we have been having, I have started looking around for some comfy, trendy but mom friendly clothing.  Thought I would share a few of my finds.. click on the picture and it will take you to the website!

Simple.. yet perfect.

Andy's schedule keeps him so busy right now.  Studying is a huge part of his life and there is rarely a full day off.  On Saturday he took most of it off and spent it with us.  We didn't have any big plans but it was perfect. A date to the park with our kids, a nice home cooked Valentines Dinner and all of us snuggling up on the couch to watch a movie.  It was simply perfect.  
The night before I did put out some little Valentine's gifts for my family to wake up to. Carter is obsessed with anything Ninja Turtles and Carly just likes to have whatever Carter has.  I went to our Dollar Store and got a few little gifts for them. (Except the Ninja Turtle and Minnie Mouse bubbles.. those are from Wal-Mart)  
Their faces the next morning were priceless.  Andy's gift idea was from this blog right here .  It was super simple to put together, just don't laugh at the Lightening Mcqueen wrapping paper, it was the only paper I had! It really turned out to be a good weekend, one I know I'll remember.

Warmer Weather

 60 degrees outside calls for coral pants.  Today was Heavenly. The sun was shining, there were blue skies and it was warm!!! It was warm enough that Carter informed me multiple times, He no longer needed to wear a sweatshirt.  My kids were so happy playing outside on our little trampoline and I was happy to send them outside to play for a change.

I loooove Sunday afternoons with  my lil' family.

Groundhog Day

It's Monday. I got up this morning and read that the groundhog saw his shadow, so unfortunately there will be 6 more weeks of winter. Bummer. ;)   It is rainy outside and so quiet in my house.  It is pretty nice knowing that I have nowhere to be today and not much to do but it is one o'clock in the afternoon and my kids and I are already getting pretty bored.  So.. sorry in advance to my family that will be getting facetime calls from us all afternoon!
