5 Spring Things I'm Loving

1 - Chick fil A's Spicy Southwest Salad

I have enjoyed this salad quite a few times lately when I'm in between an errand and the carpool line and I don't have quite enough time to go home for lunch. There is so much lettuce and texture and deliciousness in this salad! Highly recommend.

I'm not great at drinking water, but the LaCroix sparkling waters make it a little more interesting to me. I like drinking these in the late afternoon when it's too late for coffee and too early for wine. And really the only thing I have any business drinking is water. There are no calories and no sodium which makes this the perfect healthy "treat."

3 - Chacos

I love Chacos. My first pair I bought in college, and they lasted for ten years. Recently, I replaced them, and I'm loving them! They are comfortable to walk in, and they are a great multipurpose shoe.

4 - Aerobie Pro Flying Ring

I got a couple of these rings to have at Stephen's birthday party. They are perfect because they are much easier to throw than a Frisbee. So they work great for young children (age 3 or 4), but they are also fun for older kids (and adults!). We recently spent a gorgeous Sunday afternoon in the back yard throwing the Aerobie Pro's around.

5 - Anne Bogel's podcast, What Should I Read Next?

For your reader-y people...this is the best podcast. Anne Bogel interviews different readers about the books they love, the books they hate, and then she gives recommendations. I've learned so much about my own reading life since I started listening to this podcast.

What are you loving these days?


A Few Photos of Stephen's 7th Birthday Party

Recently, we celebrated Stephen's 7th birthday with a good, old fashioned backyard party!

He wanted a Titanic themed cake, but there are some things a mama just can't do. Maybe next year.

My sister took these pictures, and I love this one below. Action shot.

My niece is a fantastic baker, and she found this dirt and dump truck cake in a cook book. It reminded her of Stephen, so she whipped it up and sent it to the party...which was so awesome because we needed two cakes for such a big crowd!

Y'all, my boy felt loved. That's all that matters about a birthday party.

The weather was perfect. Answer to prayer!

Time flies.

I cannot believe my oldest baby is seven years old. He's so sweet, an old soul, an affectionate, and interesting person.

Just a funny memory I want to remember.....

The other day we went to Starbucks to get a chocolate croissant. We were sitting at a high top table, and I see Stephen's lips start to pucker....like I'm coming over there to give you a kiss, Mama.

It was so crowded and I was thinking...this is not the time or the place with the jiggly, high top table and the coffee.

But he was coming for me, and gave me the biggest kiss on the cheek. Mwah! Love that boy.
