Oh sweet Friday, how I love you so! This has been one busy week. Can we just take a minute and let it sink in that tomorrow is the first day of August? Again, time is not a Momma's friend #evilwitch. We had a fabulous week and our weekend is looking to be full of greatness, too. Here is our weekly recap of what we've enjoyed this week.
I love a good photo challenge so when Christine at Christine Everyday shared this one for August, I thought I'd give it a shot. Some of these topics have me thinking "WTH?" like day 4 and 27 but I'm up to the challenge of finding something to fit the bill. Here are the details on the challenge; I'd love for you to join me!
With Connor's birthday just 3 months away (!!) I've already started the plans. Actually, they've been in the works for a while now BUT I'm really starting to make reservations, pick out decorations and create the invite. I'm looking to enjoy more while doing less this year. His first two birthday (year 1: post 1, 2, and 3 and year 2: post 1) were a lot of work. I really want to enjoy the party more this year.
I've been trying to add bits and pieces of decor and personality to the house over the last 6 months. One area that needs a ton of TLC is our master bedroom. We don't have a lot of space so I have to be smart with what I use to decorate. When Ashley shared her Etsy shop, Mama Designed with me, I instantly feel in love with the print above. Not not only are the colors perfect for our room but the quote is a favorite: God is with her; she will not fail || Psalm 45:5. Click on the Mama Designed button on my sidebar to see more of Ashley's work.
Our weather lately has been AHHHMAZING! While I'm worried we are having too easy of a summer (meaning winter will be brutal) I am lovin' all the time we are spending outside because the temperatures are bearable. Last night after dinner, we packed up and headed to the park to run of some energy and enjoy a beautiful 83 degree weather. That's exactly my kind of summer!
If you look closely at the stack of books we scored at the library yesterday, you'll see 3 Fall themed ones. Yes, Fall books. If you know me at all, you know that Fall is my element. But what I really wanted to share with you is this: while at the library the childrens librarian approached me and introduced herself and offered to provide "teacher collections" to me when I explained Connor and I complete a season reading list/challenge and share what we love on Wife Mommy Me. So Mommies of little ones, get to know your childrens librarian; he/she is full of resources that will help your little one learn to love and appreciate reading!
Happy Friday, friends!
