It's Monday...again! I had an event for work on Saturday morning - and basically I worked all afternoon when I got home - so I don't really feel like I had a weekend, which is kind of a bummer. But oh well; I'm taking off on Friday to hang out with Walker, rest and recoup! And because of a busy weekend, I only have pictures from Sunday. Oops!

We were super cool and made grilled cheeses, Brandon brought home some tomato soup from Panera, and we just hung out. I was so worn out from the week that we were all in bed - asleep - by 8 p.m. It was so amazing to just rest

I was up at the crack of dawn to go to my work event. It was a cool volunteer service activity that more than 2,500 of our students, teachers, staff and parents took part in {kind of like Steppin' Out if you went to Baylor}. And while it was cool, I was kind of bummed to miss my precious Saturday with my little fam! Brandon watched Walker, and when I got home, we had lunch at Chick-fil-A and all went to the grocery store together. 

My aunt came over for supper {I made Annie's chicken enchiladas and Closet Cooking's Esquites} and she hung out with us and helped us get Walker bathed and in bed. He's been acting like a little terror lately and throwing the biggest tantrums. {Sorry, just saying it like it is!} We're praying it's just teething and/or a growth spurt because it's been a battle of the wills lately! 

We went to church, and our pastor preached an awesome sermon on the humanity of Christ - how Jesus was fully God and fully man - and challenged us about giving God our "leftovers": leftover time, leftover money, leftover devotion, etc. It was so powerful that Brandon and I went down front and asked our pastor to just pray over us. With Walker testing our patience and just the busyness of our lives, we felt like we had been giving God our leftovers lately. In my almost 28 years of life - and having been raised in the church - I have never, ever gone down front to pray at the altar. It was a really vulnerable thing for me to do...and it's super vulnerable for me to tell y'all about it. But I'm telling you because I want to challenge you that if you've never done that - or if you feel like you're giving God your leftovers - to just pray about it. Know that because Jesus was fully man when He walked on this earth, he knows what you're going through! I can't tell you how much peace has washed over me since I just shared my vulnerability with Christ yesterday. 

Anyway, after church, Brandon grilled us some homemade hamburgers and then we all took good naps! Then, we went to get frozen yogurt and got our nasty car washed...along with everyone else in DFW! :) {Seriously, the line wrapped around the building!} 

We made a quick Target run and then came home to enjoy the gorgeous weather with a walk! 

After almost three weeks of rain, the sun finally shone and the blue skies were gorgeous! We enjoyed our little peeks of spring on our walk. 

I hope y'all have a wonderful week! 

Linking up with Biana and Meghan 



  1. Boo to working and tantrums, but your Sunday sounds nice and looks fabulous!! I can't wait for the trees to start blooming here!

    1. Thanks, girl! I love, love spring and am so thankful the weather has started acting like it!

  2. I agree - Boo to work and tantrums - But, they both HAVE to happen unfortunately! I love how beautiful your weather looked. I wish we had that up by ME!

    1. Amen; work and tantrums suck! Hopefully you will get some spring weather soon!

  3. Seth has been the same! Tantrums constantly, it started a while ago but this week has been the worst. He has starting kicking and flailing himself everywhere. I need to read some discipline books to nip it in the bud. Any suggestions?
