Life Lately...

Thursday was the day my daughter became a vegetarian. 

I needed to run by the grocery store after ballet on Thursday morning.  This is the first time Amelia really took notice of the meat section.  I was waiting for the butcher to hand me my order when I looked over at her - she had a disgusted look on her face.  

And then came the question.  

Amelia: "Did that used to be an animal?"

Mama: "Yes."

Amelia: "Like what...what was it was a pig?

Mama: "No, it's a chicken."

Amelia: "Oh gross...ewww...gross...ewww."

Amelia: "Would you want me to go shoot a pig and make you pig soup!??"

Mama: (laughing hysterically) "No, no I wouldn't."

Amelia: "Well don't ever tell me what those animals are again then!"

My girls still nap every single day. 

And there's something so sweet about watching them sleep.  They still seem like babies to me when sleeping.

I received a surprise package on Thursday and it just made my day.  I love the strawberry body butter from The Body Shop.  It's all I use after showering.  We don't have a store here, so Alex usually picks it up for me when he's out of town.  He knew I was out and even though he wasn't where he usually picks it up, he called them and they shipped it to me.  He even had them add a sweet note and bubble bath.  It was so thoughtful and made me feel loved.  It was just the pick-me-up I needed while my man was out of town.  

Friday was the day that Alex was coming home!  I was exhausted and decided we would get in the car (girls still in their pajamas) and get donuts and coffee.  

I even let the girls play outside in their pajamas when we arrived home. 

This girl and her paci. HA!

Picking Mama some flowers. 

This one loves to ride her bike.  She has been asking about taking her training wheels off but I don't think we're ready just yet.  Maybe this summer. 

I may or may not consume large amounts of espresso when Daddy is away from home.

We hadn't been outside playing for too long when one of our neighbors walked up the street to introduce themselves.  She has a little boy the same age as Amelia and they saw us outside playing.  They brought some toys over and we ended up visiting for 2 hours!  God just keeps giving me opportunities to meet my neighbors. I love it.  

Her little boy let Amelia drive his Jeep.  She and Sydney thought that was the coolest thing. She started requesting a Jeep as soon as Daddy walked in the door.

Bath time came early on Friday.  

We always get pretty dirty when we play outside. :)

We had Sadie's birthday party on Saturday morning! 

Amelia loved this party.  It was a ballet/dance theme.  They had a rack full of dress-up clothes for the girls.

We changed clothes just a few times.  

We made it a Mommy/Amelia day and headed to the mall.  

First stop was to grab some pretzel bites and lemonade.  

Which is right beside the photo booth.  

Which we love.

I ran into my blog friend, Sarah while at the mall!  I'm always in my own world when I'm out and about, so I was happy she saw me and said hello.  This was our first time to meet in person!

I started feeling sick while at the mall, so I decided we needed to head home.  I was sick all Saturday evening/Sunday. 

I was thankful for my parents.  They took the girls to church for me!  

I asked Alex if anyone noticed they needed tanks under their tops and he said, yeah, just a few. I didn't have a tank top and was doing good to get them dressed and out the door.  My Mom said Amelia was concerned that she was showing too much skin! HAHA!  I think Sydney's is the worst!  Poor thing.  Mama will do better next time.  

I'm feeling better today. Thank the Lord! I woke up this morning and made the girls and my Daddy some breakfast and felt like eating some too! 

The girls have been good to just play and there has been minimal fighting this morning. :)

They both had some iPad time.  Amelia chose to play a game.  

Sydney chose worship songs. HA! She was singing the songs while dancing with her Frozen dolls. 

And now it's already nap time and I need to decide what I'm making for dinner. This Monday is flying by!

Love to all,

First off, email or message me if you need body shop stuff. I have one 5 minutes from my house. That is so sweet about Alex. I hope you are feeling better. I, too, love watching my kids sleep. I could stare at them for hours. Oh, we've all made clothing mistakes being sick and/or in a rush. Recently one of my girls wore pants where you could see their panties. I didn't notice until they were home and bending over in front of me. I learned that I need to look at their behinds a little more to prevent such occurrences because my sweet girl was mortified.

Y'alls photo booth pics are always so cute!

And, I'm cracking up about Sydney showing some skin. I have to admit I saw a picture of her on Niki's instagram and giggled a little. Oh, she's just so cute!
