weekly three.

April 22, 2018

We had such a wonderful week away!!! Time truly slowed down while we were in Cancun, somehow. It felt like we were gone for weeks and the hours felt like days. The wifi was super slow, so I wasn't able to blog like I hoped, and I'm just now getting around to my weekly three. It seems pretty fitting though... as I'm cleaning out the suitcases and washing the laundry and putting away the clean clothes, I can look back on the week and share three of my favorite moments. Of course I will have a massive blog post later this week with a recap and a LOT more pictures, but for now, here are three of my favorites!

this view for the week, it was almost too good to be true

so many sweet cuddles and naps in the shade for my littlest guy

& watching my big boy take in all the beautiful views and play with daddy all week was so sweet

Happy Friday the 13th!! ;) Hope your day isn't too crazy... I'm sure mine will be. HA! I have so many things on my to do list today and we have to finish getting packed and ready for vacation. We are so excited to leave bright and early tomorrow morning for a family vacation in Cancun. I haven't been to Cancun in a very long time and I'm so excited to experience it with my hubby and our two boys. This will be Asher's first vacation, so I'm praying big time for that long flight with him. Solomon is clearly excited since he's been asking me every single day for weeks, "we go to the beach now?". I plan to do some fun beachy posts while I'm there during naptime, so we'll see if that happens. Hope you have a beautiful weekend!!!

Thanks to fighting that dreaded thrush, I switched up my diet big time. The past eight days, I’ve  pretty much only had, veggies and meat with a tiny bit of whole grains. No sugar or sweets at all, not even fruit. It’s been hard but I feel really great, besides the whole thrush thing still hanging on, unfortunately. I’ve also lost 12 pounds in a week, which is crazy! My new favorite lunch is a cucumber salad that my in-laws make, it is so delicious and healthy!


The weather was so wonderful all week and we enjoyed so many walks down our street. The flowers are blooming and Solomon’s skin is already getting so brown!! I knew I would be jealous of my kids skin....


Last night we had a fun family date night and this momma so needed it. I’ve been a little down with all the pain and annoying thrush problems, so when Peter mentioned going out for some live music and food, I definitely said yes!! I had a few bites of yummy food truck food, along with my super yummy and healthy brussle sprout salad, and a few sips of beer, too. It was a good night!! 

little letters.

dear allergies,
you can back off now.

dear thrush,
Seriously. Can. Not. Explain. Just how much I hate you. So happy that you are almost over.

dear chipotle,
I really wish you had a drive thru. This mom would really take advantage of that perk!

dear baby bump,
I miss you a lot. The aches and pains of pregnancy, not so much. But to feel beautiful and secure with growing curves, that I miss very much.

dear suitcases,
seriously can not wait to pack you full of fun summer clothes for vacation.

dear size nine month clothes,
I can't believe I just had to sort you and get you ready for Asher already.

dear size twelve month clothes,
I also can’t believe you actually fit Asher!

dear Psalms,
I'm really enjoying my quiet time with you most mornings.

dear rocking chair,
I’m so glad I finally moved you from Solomon’s room to Asher’s room. It was time, and so needed!

dear tree over our deck,
You are so pretty and I love when you bloom each year!

Well, it's Saturday, not Friday.... and I'm posting my weekly three. Which shows you just how my week has been going. Sadly, I realized this week that Asher and I  both had a case of thrush. I've always heard about it but since I didn't have any breast feeding problems with Solomon, I was hopeful it would be the same this time around. And because of all his weight gain, and his happy personality, I didn't think we had it. But, we do. We are doing all we can to get over this hump. Asher already feels much better but I'm still struggling. I'm hoping to see a difference in the next 3-5 days, then we are off to Cancun this coming weekend. So, I really want to feel better!!! Prayers for our health and quick recovery, please!!

Having family in town this week for Spring Break has been so nice. Asher has gotten a lot of cuddles and love from his auntie Mimi! I love this sweet picture. 

& cuddles with Teta on her deck!

Rainy Saturdays with peonies and oils diffusing are making me smile today!

spring is here.

One of the biggest parts of Spring for our family is our new chickens. We get to go pick them up, pick out which kind we want, watch them grow up so incredibly fast (it still kind of freaks me out how quickly they grow) and then we put them out in the yard. We gave them little spurts of time outside over the weekend and now they are officially in the coop full time. I can't wait to get some fresh eggs!!! Hopefully they will produce soon and we can start making some delicious breakfast with them. They really do taste so much better. 

Asher ready for a nap & Solomon wanting to explore!


This picture, so clearly shows his life right now. Always going and ready to see something with his "blaster" in hand. He calls this his Hans Solo blaster, or his small lightsaber. I keep waiting for him to become bored with Star Wars, but it hasn't happened yet. I'm so ready for more days like this. Spending a lot of time outside and watching Solomon explore while I carry Asher on my hip. I've never been an outside kind of person, I normally prefer the AC and the couch, but I'm going to enjoy it this year. Sitting on the deck, playing with bubbles, going for walks, and welcoming the new freckles on my nose and shoulders. Spring, we am so ready for you!!!
