Weekend Recap

Happy rainy Monday morning everybody.  Carson and I were not ready to get up today.  We had a great weekend and wanted a little more sleep.  

Friday was nacho night and after we finished dinner, Carson and I headed to the grocery store while Greg mowed.

We got home in time for Carson to help Greg clean the mower and put it away.

He thought he was so cool.

Saturday morning he requested pancakes.  He loves to help when he can.  

We played outside while it was nice and did some dusting before heading out for the day.

Our first stop was lunch at  Freddy's.

We spent the rest of our afternoon playing at Grammy and Pappy's.  

Sunday we went to church and came home and rested all afternoon.  It was perfect.

Friday Favorites

It's Friday friends!  Can you believe it?  We have made it.  Classes started at SEBTS this week and we have been busy in our office.  

I'm excited to be back to link up with Andrea, Erika and Narci for Friday Favorites.


I love these ESV Scripture Journals.  This is the one I just finished using for my study in Colossians.  I'm about to start 1 and 2 Peter and I ordered a new one.  I love having the space on the side to take notes.  

I've been reading this book and it is so good.  I'm trying to finish it up this weekend so I can watch the movie on Netflix.  I've heard so many great things about the movie which is new on Netflix.  Have any of you read the book or watched the movie yet?

Here is the trailer for the movie.

Speaking of books, that is all Carson wants to do at night.  Reading is probably his favorite evening activity.

We get a new book every month from the Dolly Parton Imagination Library too.  If it is available in your area, you should check it out.  

I shared a little about Carson on Wednesday.  My favorite is that he is doing so well with potty training.  His favorite is when it is cupcake day at daycare.
I think he likes it.  

This was a short favorites post this week!  I'm ready for the real favorite, which is the weekend.  See you Monday.  

Carson the Buddy

Today seemed like a good day to give an update on the buddy.  We are a little over 3 months away from having a three year old in our house.  I can't believe it.  He is growing so fast.

Carson is just over three foot tall and weighs about 31 pounds.  He is all boy all the time.  The only time he stops is when he sleeps.  

His vocabulary is changing daily as he learns new words, expressions and phrases.  He has been working on his colors in Spanish these last few weeks.  

He is doing much better at potty training.  This has been a process for us.  Most of his friends at daycare caught on quickly but not Carson.  Carson is analytical.  He had to understand the why before he was willing to try.  

He loves helping me in the kitchen and his favorite is licking the beater when we make cookies.  

I'm pretty sure if he was deserted on an island and could only have his cars and listen to the Sing soundtrack or Phil Wickham he would be perfectly happy.  If we threw in some granola bars, he would be all set.  

We love this kid so much and can't believe we get to be the ones to raise him.  We love you buddy.

Weekend Recap

Happy Monday everyone!  We had a great weekend and classes start this week at SEBTS so it's going to be busy.

Our weekend started with pizza.

Saturday started with pancakes and a trip to the grocery store.

Carson and Greg went to the airport to watch planes while I stayed home.  They had a blast.

Carson and I baked some rolls and played all afternoon.

We ended our night with brisket and potatoes.

Carson and I stayed home on Sunday morning.  I wasn't feeling all that great.

He played by himself and rested too.

He even took one long nap and looked so big in his bed.

We ended our day with more blocks, baseball and brownies.

What I'm Wearing Wednesday

Happy Wednesday friends!  I thought I would share with you four things that I've bought recently that I love!  They are all super affordable too.

If you know me at all, you know that I  LOVE FRIENDS.  I ordered this shirt on Jane last week and it is a super fun tee.
 These next two shirts I found at Wal-Mart.  They are the Time and Tru line.  They are really cute and were less than $10.  They are out of stock online but I found them in the store.  

 This one is an Amazon find and I can't wait to wear it in the fall with some jeans and booties.  

I need to work on taking pics of me in them but for now this will do.  Have a great Wednesday everyone.  Let me know if you have found some great items lately too.
