FOUR: I mentioned this on twitter yesterday, but all this Christmas in July stuff going on zulily and the other sale websites gave me crazy anxiety this week! Yall know I am all about being prepared and some good holiday attire, but LORD HELP, this is too early. I am happily ignoring it, buying nothing and waiting awhile. I have not bought any pumpkin outfits yet!! Some of yall may love it and more power to you - but this mama was not ready for it!
THREE: With that being said about not ready for Christmas, I am ready for Fall. I am ready for football, pumpkins, cooler weather and putting away the summer clothes. Owen playing football has gotten me ready for the next season and over summer. To think I have my own personal little ball player to cheer for this year makes me so excited! I think I am also ready for November and my baby niece to be here (see number one in a moment :) ). And if you read my last post, I am craving the back to school routine like woah! Fall is the best season of the year and we have so much to look forward to this year!
TWO: Well we are coming upon the busiest part of the year and my two young'ns birthdays!! Owen will be 7 on August 14th and Bree will be 4 on August 21st! I am in full on party planning mode (you know if my free time ;) ). We are having a combined party this year in our backyard for the two of them. It is a Splish Splash Bash! We rented a huge water slide, will have water balloons, and let the kids and their buds have fun in the water! Check out the super cute invites Sarah made me - love them!
sidenote - Friends and family don't think you were not invited - these puppies are going out this weekend :)
ONE: I cannot tell you how excited I am about new babies in the family. At the beginning of the year, I was feeling a little sad that we did not have babies anymore and that I was DONE. My kids are so grown up now and it makes me a little sad. Well then Tara announces she is pregnant and I was cured!!! Then Shane's brother and his wife find out they are not only pregnant, but having twins!! I think it is safe to say that I am going to have my baby fix for sure ;). Finding out that Tara is having a girl and being able to buy baby girl stuff again has brought me so much joy and I can. not. stop! Ask Tara, I have lost my mind and have bought Live Mae so many cute things! I cannot wait until she is here and I can spoil her rotten :). The Lord is truly blessing our family over the next year and I am so thankful!!
This weekend, Shane found an old wallet that he carried when Claire was a baby. It was full of Claire baby pics and I cried when I saw them...she is such a big girl now!
Happy Friday friends!!!
