Thoughts for Thursday: Life Lately

Happy Thursday, y'all! A good ol' "Life Lately" post for y'all today. Here's a bit about what we've been up to: 

+ Dentist Appointments

Both Walker and I recently had dentist appointments, and while his was awesome, mine was less than. I'm still planning to get Invisalign next year to fix my crooked front teeth, but I'm still nervous about it since I'm actually missing a lateral and would have to go with a "dummy" tooth for a few months. I know it's all vanity, but still. Sigh. 

+ Enjoying awesome spring-like weather
In Texas, we have about a month and a half of "spring" before our temperatures turn to summer from about May-September, so we try to get out and enjoy our cool evenings with low humidity as much as we can. One of our favorite parks in the area also has restaurants in walking distance, so we've been hitting those up. Drinks on the patio while the kids play? Yes, please! 

+ Rodeo Day
Walker's little "school" recently had Rodeo Day, and it was just the cutest thing ever. We are so thankful for his preschool and will definitely miss it this summer! ;) 

+ Trying new foods
Knox is definitely my great eater, and that boy loves him some blueberries. And can we please talk about those eyelashes?!

+ Enjoying 
We had an Oklahoma Redbud Tree planted outside our kitchen window last year, and it's blooming beautifully! I love looking out of my window and seeing this gorgeous tree blooming! Spring has sprung! 

+ Play dates with friends
We were on Spring Break last week and had lots of fun play dates with our friends: The Galleria, The Tubes, a local park, a fun indoor play place, lunch with Brandon, and more! 

+ Cuddles with my boys
So beyond thankful for them each and every day and can't believe these precious souls call me "Mommy." 

So, while definitely not the most exciting, there's a bit of our real life over here! :) 

Linking up with Annie, Natalie and Julie

  2. This post makes me miss spring in Texas! I've been in Boston now for almost 10 years but am from Temple - girl, it's 18 degrees here this morning! Our daughter was born on January 6, so I've been inside with her for the last 11 weeks - I can't wait for warmer days to get out for walks in our neighborhood!

    And this is so random and not relevant to your post today, but I'm nearing the end of my maternity leave (my first day back is April 3) and I keep going back to your posts from when you first went back to work with Walker. Everything that you describe feeling is EXACTLY what I'm struggling with, so it's been comforting to see that I'm not alone in those mommy guilt feelings about daycare, missing the little things each day (I could cry just typing this!). Our goal is for me to transition to staying home in the next year or so, and I keep telling myself that if you can do it for 15ish months before you stayed home, I can too! Blog world is fun for shopping and recipes and pics of our kids, but it's also so nice to find support and be able to relate when you really need it :) Have a wonderful day with your boys!

  3. The most precious boys! I cannot believe how fast they are growing. Now that I have one of my own I truly understand what people mean when they say they grow up too fast :(

  4. So jealous of your wonderful spring weather-nothing beats a meal outside on the patio! That little blueberry on Knox's nose KILLS ME! Too freaking cute!

  5. SO much fun happening here! I love the little Rodeo picture. How fun!

  6. I feel like once the weather gets really nice, it's hard not to be in a happier mood since you can get out more, and the boys are playing. These are fun memories to be made, especially with the food hahah.
    Girl I wouldn't ever have guessed that you'd need Invisalign! Your teeth look straight to me! My husband just got done with it and it was a pain in the butt (always taking them out when eating and drinking). He's glad he's finally done but it was a nuisance for sure.

  7. Your weather - I'm so jealous!! And drinks/eats on the patio - YES!

  8. Your boys are so cute!! And I'm in love with your flowering tree. What a pretty sight to see each day!

  9. blooming trees are so beautiful! hooray for spring! xo jillian - cornflake dreams

  10. Rodeo day sounds so fun! And that tree blooming is gorgeous!

  11. Y'all have been up to some fun stuff!! (minus the dentist ;))The weather sounds so amazing out there - I love this time of year :) Your new tree is beautiful!
