Kim + Jeff tied the knot at Sleepy Ridge Golf Course last weekend. WHAT A BLAST. We love these guys so dang much! It’s always a party when¬†all the family is in the same place. The food was incredible, the dancing was top notch + the cousin time was “the best night of my life” as per jonah’s tired mouth.¬†
We’re moving¬†next week. Will I ever be ready? Taking a break from packing so I’ll share some of my favorite items from Childhoods new release + a few favorite podcasts that I’m in to right now! How does that sound?!
I came home from dinner¬†last night with Bre to a new code that “can’t ever be broken until the end of time”. ¬†I had nothing to do with it — yet I support it with every fiber of my being.
Respect others, Take care of your brothers, Never lie to your mother.
Jon is the very very best dad for our little family.¬†I love his heart + the way he’s making respect a priority in our home. I hope the boys turn out EXACTLY like him. Aren’t they¬†lucky I convinced him to marry me? ūüôā
We’ve had our pop up trailer for a month or so now? Maybe a bit longer, but HELLO, best investment so far as parents! HANDS DOWN. ¬†Fresh air, warm beds, Jonah’s campfire stories + PB&Js sure¬†making me smile tonight.
All the camp sites we were planning on staying in for Fathers Day were full by Friday afternoon, so we faced a bit of an adventure head on + stumbled upon a gold mine while we were at it. WHO KNEW THIS BEAUTY EXISTED IN OUR BACKYARD?¬†Utah, you pretty! Real, real prettttty.
5 quick memories¬†before I gush over how obsessed we are with Jon for Fathers Day:
1. Squashing all 4 of us onto one motorcycle | 2 for 2 riders falling asleep
2. Conversations about each of the kids on said motorcycle ride
3. Meditating in the most serene place. My heart was overflowing. Still is.
4. Jack listening to his voice all the way up the canyon, all the way back. His mind will be BLOWN when we take him on a rumble strip in the mini.
5. Whittier’s¬†joining us for lunch + motorcycles!
¬† Our gold tea pot + his little romper.¬†
5 quick¬†sours¬†to remind you exactly how normal our life is:
1. I forgot the bag with the cheese + marshmallows. “ohhh you guys love egg only omelets, remember? …wait, can they even be called omelets¬†with just one ingredient…..?¬†
2. the egg carton¬†disintegrated in the cooler of melted ice
3. cold sore from H E DOUBLE
4. jack biffed it off the chair after his watermelon was gone. #bloodynose
5. camp fire laundry
Wanted to throw on a few phone snaps because this place is too GREAT¬†to forget!
I think I’ll save the ranting as to why Jon is the best dad in all the land — for his Fathers Day¬†card. But it feels good to be ahead of the game on a post for once! Huzzah!¬†Happy Fathers Day weekend! xx
WE MADE IT!
After a long day of traveling + a night without sleep, we made it to Clearwater Beach Florida!
The boys are in heaven to say the least!
Not only is the sand WHITE, the Ocean is warm in Clearwater Beach Florida.
We can’t wait to dive into the community here at the Wyndham Grand + bring you right along with us!
Cooking hasn’t always been my strong suit.
I stick to the basics + pride myself on my world record clean up timing. Ha!
Jon knew this + still married me.
But I made a goal to conquer my cooking fear this year + HelloFresh has been the checkmate move in doing so. ¬†So I thought I’d share our HelloFresh review with you.
Jon + I had a little red sofa in our bedroom when we were first married. But five years + three kids later, that sweet little couch was replaced with a baby crib long ago. Thanks to Jonathan Louis Furniture, we’ve taken our master bedroom back to its roots + brightened it back up a bit for Spring! Hashtag: Oh Happy Freakin’ Day! Our new couch makes me smile so big every time I see it. We’ve already made¬†a plethora of memories in our new little nook.
New Couch time worth noting:
JON: discard child pile during after-work wrestles
GING: played ‘get to know your leaders’ with the sweet young women.
JONAH: learning how to tie his shoes here
RIGG: calling every front flip he does a back flip | far left cushion is hiding place of choice
JACK: propped up in the corner with his legs crossed just hanging out #likeaboss
I love that we¬†don’t have a TV in our room anymore, it leaves more time for play.¬†Please please please bless Rigg never grows out of his camera/picture taking obsession. He takes it very seriously.
I’m the most indecisive decorator alive so Jonathan Louis Furniture‚Äôs¬†600+ fabric swatch options about did me in. ūüôā But also won me over forever because it guarantees the best of the best custom fit/style for each + every space. Ding Ding Ding!! It was important for me to find something textured enough to withstand six¬†sticky hands from three busy kiddos, but comfortable enough to nap on Sundays in the window sunshine.¬†I went as light as I possibly could on the fabric for our new couch, but still allotted some forgivable¬†breathing room¬†for the wear + tear of¬†everyday life with a family full of boys. We went with¬†the Maddock sofa (estate size) + are loving it 100%.
If you’re interested in checking out the quality in person for a new couch, plug your address¬†into their¬†dealer locator¬†real quick — locations near you will pop right up.¬†I know Z Gallerie, Macy’s, RC Willey + several other local furniture stores carry it as well. The quality simply cannot be beat. Thank you Jonathan Louis Furniture for sponsoring this opportunity! All opinions are completely my own! ¬†xx
SUPRISEEEEE! One of our very favorite brands of allll time is releasing a new to their bucket bike line up! WHITE! WHITE! WHITE! You know my heart loves white. To celebrate, we have teamed up with Madsen Cycles to give a bike away¬†on Instagram. Still time to enter here!¬†Winner gets to choose any color of bike they’d like.¬†
We can’t be on time for church no matter how hard I try.
I know it starts in my head. BUT I STILL CAN’T. I HAVE TRIED SO.HARD. SO.MANY.TIMES.
Week after week. Sunday after Sunday. You can count on us for being late.
We were soooooo close this week, but couldn’t quite pull it off.¬†
Last week was a doooooozy.
Today was just the breath of fresh air I needed to keep going, the Perfect Family Sunday.
We’ve got Spring Break on the calendar this week!!
I’m looking forward to the one on one time with the boys.
