Happy first day of spring, y'all! So finally my favorite season is finally, officially here. 

We had a wonderful weekend full of no plans {which turned out to be heavenly} and one of those weekends where I would just smile because it was just good: family time, sunny days and utter contentment. I'm so thankful for my people and I'm definitely missing those 2.5 lovely little days today! 

Here's what we were up to: 

We had a fun little St. Patrick's Day! It was our first day of the week with absolutely nothing on the agenda and we relished just hanging around the house. 

Walker got green milk with his breakfast {regular milk with a few drops of green food coloring}; I dressed them in their best green ensembles {thank goodness we're Baylor Bears and one of our school colors is green!}; Walker and I did a little craft; we ran a few errands and picked up a shamrock-shaped sugar cookie from our local little bakery on the way home. 

We had leftovers for supper, and Brandon and I watched "Allied" when the boys were in bed. It was...meh. Good, but I was hoping it would be better. 

Walker had his very first soccer experience! He was super into it at first, but after about 20 minutes said, "Okay, guys, I'm done!" Ha! But he did do really well and we were very impressed with the organization. We can't wait to see more of the cat-herding that will happen each week. ;) 

The clouds broke Saturday morning and we decided it was high time to get our garden ready for spring. We went to our local mom-and-pop nursery {always a favorite!} and got lots of flowers and plants to make our backyard look pretty. A little butterfly landed on some flowers while Brandon and I were deciding and Walker was just enamored with it. 

...but then our boys were just over it, so we headed home. 

They had fun playing peek-a-boo while we got things unloaded and Brandon got things planted, and it made my heart melt. I love these sweet brothers! 

It was high time for me to renew my library card, so I went while the boys were napping and Brandon was watching March Madness. It was so fabulous to wander the rows and rows of books alone! I chose this book that I've been wanting to read for years, and I'd highly recommend the two books I just finished: "The Magnolia Story" and "Come Home." 

The weather was so lovely, so Brandon took the boys out for a walk around the neighborhood so I could get supper ready. We joked that Knox was in his "chariot," but in true toddler fashion, Walker didn't want to ride with his brother and instead pulled his old tricycle out and followed them. ;) 

I made this for supper and we both fell asleep on the couch while watching "Dateline" {we're real party animals, let me tell you!}. 

We went to church, which was great! Then, we came home and spent as much time outside as we could. I'm telling you, if you ever want to visit Texas, come in late March/early April. I think it's our prettiest, best-weather time of the year. 

Knox has been making the funniest "little old man" faces lately and it absolutely cracks us up! He was content to just sit on our little mini trampoline with Brandon and watch the airplanes, while Walker "helped" me pull weeds. 

We all took Sunday afternoon naps, which were heavenly. Truthfully, one of my favorite things in the world is a sunny Sunday spent at church and falling asleep with the sun shining into my bedroom. It's the little things. ;) After our fabulous naps, we dropped some stuff off at my in-law's, then came home in time for the Baylor basketball game. 

I made homemade breakfast tacos for supper, which were great! I was kind of in a dinner rut and didn't feel like cooking a full meal, but didn't want to eat leftovers, and nothing out sounded good. So breakfast tacos it was: just corn tortillas, scrambled eggs, cheese, refried black beans, sour cream, salsa and avocado, sprinkled with a little Tony's. {Such a great little addition to breakfast tacos -- try it!} 

I hope y'all have fabulous weeks!
