Week in the Life - 27

August 12, 2018

We left off getting yogurt because our dinner was a bust...but I forgot to post last Sunday's church pictures.  They're some real gems.  Before this it was his sister's house shoes and this week was cars.  I don't even try anymore.
On Tuesday we did back to school hair cuts, Georgia went with me MeMe to go out to lunch and shopping, and then we were off to swim lessons.  Jonathan was working late because it was registration week so we did a another crock pot meal.  Not as bad as the night before but still not stellar.  BUT I praise my husband for trying so hard to prep all of the new meals before hand.  It's always hard trying new recipes.  We had food in our bellies and I got brother in bed on time.  Yay.
Before our turn at the salon.
The afters!
Wednesday we had an oh so healthy breakfast of powder sugar donuts and then a mish-mash lunch of chili cheese tots and random food from around the house.  I promise I usually feed my kids better than this but Sonic sent me a promo that I couldn't pass up.  I love chili cheese tots!  We headed off to swim lessons yet again.  It's our favorite post nap activity.  Jonathan was working late again (registration week for him - no matter where or how my kids are educated we will always be tied to a school year schedule - stinks but it's life)
Jonathan's mom brought Georgia some, "Georgia Peach" Coke and she's sneaking sips every chance she gets.
Thursday was more swim lessons and gymnastics.  Lounging and playing.
Friday we played outside, got some sweet treats, and did more gymnastics.
Saturday Jonathan and I had a day date in Houston so I could scout some photo locations.  We had such a great time.  We fed the kid's breakfast and then went to the Color Block Wall, Sabine St. Bridge, Tiny's Milk and Cookies, The Heights, Goodwill, Bernie's Burger Bus, looked at some cars, and then headed home.
Georgia spent the night at my mom's so this week's Sunday pictures were just the bitty boy...
 Because one night apart was really really hard.  Back to school (Wednesday) is going to be really hard.
Happy Monday!

Week in the Life - 26

August 6, 2018

This is the first blog post I've written from my new laptop.  On the digital front I feel a little behind because I'm getting used to a new system.  I'm on my computer all the time working and I still haven't memorized the "feel" of it.  I went from a crummy PC laptop to a super great MacBook Pro.  I'm familiar with apple but there are few little things that I'm still trying to get to become second nature.  Anyhow, here's what we've been up to.

I had my back to school sessions! I dressed Georgia to match one of her little besties when I learned they had the same dress.  They are so cute together.  K is going into 1st and G is going into 2nd because K missed the school cut off by 12 hours so although they are great friends they are in different grades.
Brother did THIS while I was shooting.  Ugh.  My children take monkey to another level.
Eating lots of odds and ends and watching A LOT of Full House!
Hanging out with this girl at night while Jonathan works extra hours.
Played Putt Putt and went to a new hot dog place in town.
Eating out way too much and washing a lot of food out of his hair...always.
Milam being so sweet with his little baby.  In his swim class they use a baby doll to show him how to float.  I found a little doll in our collection that would float and now he's obsessed with making it kick and float.  It's so cute!
My mom and Aaron have come over a lot.  All the babies need them.
We made a new trellis for the front yard.  File that under...why didn't we do this sooner.  I think I'm going to plant jasmine to grow on it.  It's been a favorite for awhile but I didn't have a place for it. Our house is a 1965 ranch.  It has the classic roofline and then the one window on the master that is a-symetrical gives that 60's vibe because it's off center.  We're trying to make it more cottage because other than the roofline and that one window the rest of the house is pretty nondescript.  We've added shutters and window boxes and now this trellis.  I think they all really help add to the curb appeal when the basics of the house are all pretty boring.
Milam is so so spoiled between Milam and I.  It's ridiculous.  He was leaning on Georgia's shoulder and saying, "night night" while she hand fed him.
Jonathan tried a new recipe tonight (Monday) and it was a flop for us.  Nothing he did wrong, it just wasn't for us so we went and got some dessert to end on a good note! Milam is living the life I tell ya'!

Boerne, TX - Summer 2018

August 1, 2018

We made a really short trip with Jonathan's family to Boerne, Texas.  We stayed in Comfort, TX which was only about a 15 minute drive.  It was such a nice area and a really fun trip.

We rented a house with Jonathan's sister and her family and his parents were supposed to come but ended up not being able to make it.
We drove into Boerne first for lunch, dessert, and shopping.  We ate at Soda Pops, looked in Sugar Shack, and then had a cupcake at Small Cakes.
 Then, we met the fam at the lake.  Boerne Lake is a gem y'all!  We had a great time there!
 Where our house was located was also a wedding venue so it had a lot of cool vacant buildings that were fun to look through and play in. On HomeAway the property ID is 13377433. If you're in the area this is a must stay.  Super cute, historic home.
Jonathan's mom wanted one good picture for her Christmas card...we tried!
Then, we headed to the river that was on the property to swim and play. It was really pretty.  I'm fairly certain it is the Guadalupe River.
 Washing the river dirt off in the pretty claw foot tub.
The next day we hit the river again!
 After we played we headed into town for lunch and to walk around by the river.  The food at Cibolo Creek was delicious and the location was really pretty.
If you're ever in Texas, give Boerne a shot!
