Boy Mom Life: A day in the life

Happy Friday everyone! I have a few fun new posts that I have coming up for you all but this week, we had a random 70 degree day and my boys and I just basically took the day off to be outside, doing outside things. I just wanted to share a little bit from our outdoor adventures this week. Sometimes you just have to do that. What is life, if you can’t enjoy it and the people who mean the most to you. Anyway I was thinking the whole time about how funny it is that I have always been a pretty girly girl and here I am covered in mud, stomping in puddles with my little boys and loving it.

Give me all the muddy hands … I am pretty sure that is boy language for love.

I was the only mom at swimming lessons that actually had mud on her Hunter boots too. Sorry but not sorry. They are super handy, and easy to clean while still being stylish boots.

Incase you might be thinking I just let the boys play in the mud for a blog photoshoot… I just took these pics this afternoon while we were all outside. They turned out so cute and fit so nicely with what I already had written, that I hurried up and edited them so I could add them really quick. Here you go… EVEN BIGGER puddle! 20180223_13002320180223_13003820180223_13004520180223_13005120180223_13013720180223_13013820180223_130146(0)20180223_13014720180223_13021120180223_13021320180223_13021720180223_13024820180223_13030820180223_130345(0)20180223_130346_00120180223_13034620180223_13055420180223_131009(0)20180223_131010

I thought to help maintain my fun girly side, I would share a few cute things I am currently stalking/sitting in my online shopping carts right now.

  • Waiting for these sneakers to come back in stock in my size. I love anything pink.
  • Thinking of trying this Bra. I have read good things about it. Has anyone else tried it yet?
  • Can I please have one of everything? The new Lilly Pulitzer swim is just too cute!
  • Waiting for these Jeans to come back in stock in my size.
  • This for my little guy and this for my bigger little guy while thinking of upcoming Easter. And this splurge or this or even this if I had a little girl. I sometimes just look and daydream. 🙂

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. Try to stay dry and mud free unless you live the boy life 😉 Until next week, XOXO

Get Outside!!

I love being outside! I am a believer in being very active and I even enjoy all types of weather. I have always said I can handle the most active kids just fine (be careful what you ask for!) and I def have some high energy boys which I LOVE! I promise I am not making that up. haha. I encourage my boys to get out and play everyday so as you can imagine, we spend alot of time outside. I think it’s totally good to let the boys just play and get dirty. We usually go through several outfit changes a day but I know they are getting plenty of exercise. In my dream house, I’d like a mud/laundry room with a mini shower/tub for dogs and kids to hose off before entering the house. (One can dream)

Here are a couple pics from playing in the yard and feeding the fish just the past week.

Hiking morning with my boys. Can’t wait to go back and bring Dad next time! 20170608_110145_00120170608_11034920170608_11040120170608_11040520170608_110409 We’ve got quite a bit of big things happening in the next couple of weeks and I see alot more mini hiking trips in our future. So make sure you get outside and enjoy the summer!

Until next week, XOXO.

Baby’s First Wagon Ride

Wagon rides are a big hit around here so we were all pretty excited to take Liam on his first wagon ride around the house. He’s getting pretty good at sitting up on his own but he’s still unstable so I packed a moving blanket around him. And you know what, it worked really well. Jake was especially excited to have a wagon riding buddy. I just love seeing them starting to interact and play together now.

 Jake was super excited and proud to give his first wagon ride! A super proud big brother!2017-02-23-11-10-202017-02-23-11-10-282017-02-23-11-10-322017-02-23-11-11-50

I thought I would throw in some pictures of Jake and Emma playing together as well. Jake loves to pretend to be a dog and run around with his best friend. Emma loves having a little boy to play with too. I could not stage this cuteness!

My family is my whole life and I love spending everyday with my little squad. I am thankful everyday for my rough and rowdy little family. Even the no napping days (i think…)

Until next week, XOXO.
