hello! i have been trying to sit down and write a post for several days now, but it’s been such a whirlwind of a week for us. there is a lot going on in our lives right now (some good things, some not so good things, but for the most part, GOOD things!) and everything has been a little bit all over the place. but life is good! and i’m just really thankful for the chance to have a shot at it.
here are a few iPhone photos of what we’ve been up to the last few weeks….
^^^we went on a little ping pong group date with friends to spin. here’s a photo of the men organizing the brackets for the men’s and women’s tournaments. they took this thing very seriously if you can’t tell. ;) ^^^
^^^and all the ladies!^^^
^^^samson wasn’t feeling too well last week. he’s been teething pretty hard (5 new teeth cut through!) and that came with a terrible fever one night, but nothing several popsicles and ice cubes and cuddling and made-up-songs-by-eleanor-on-her-guitar couldn’t fix… or help with, at least. glad to report he is so much better this week! and there is eleanor up on the counter helping make a green smoothie, too!^^^
^^^salads in the making at sweetgreen. although i’m still a wrap girl and order one every time, through and through.^^^
^^^trying to survive yet another long day that was too cold to play outside by killing time and energy in our church gym. also, working terribly hard to be more aware of what i’m putting into my body this year and as a result, tried to drink some chia seeds straight up one day. um, no. couldn’t do it. josh drank it though. (weirdo!) props to anyone who drinks only chia seeds regularly.^^^
^^^prettiest view coming out of the library. it might be the coldest month i can remember, but still thankful i get to live here, and see things like this each day.^^^
^^^i spy with my little eye, papa taking his babes up to his office. this was a really special day for our family. and here we go!^^^
^^^finally had the chance to meet kelsey nixon in person and see her in action giving a cooking demonstration! she is the sweetest, and her food was delicious!^^^
^^^had a few things to celebrate with my love so we tried out gotham bar and grill for restaurant week. absolutely delicious! i wish every week was restaurant week! ;) also, it’s ice cold outside but this little lady of mine was just dying to grab some froyo one day. she was being so good and asking so nicely, i just couldn’t deny her her special treat! silly girl. i love her so much.^^^
^^^still having at least one snow storm each week over here. and my kids are still eating them up like it’s christmas morning. i’ve been trying to have a more positive attitude about it, but honestly, is it april yet?^^^
^^^best buds. at least 3/4ths of the day.^^^
^^^finding sister’s dropped snow ball is the worst when you already have both of your arms full of other snowballs. he wanted it so bad! he just might have tried to pick it up several times, each time dropping one of the three to compensate. it was so hard not step in and help him (but i was trying to give him space to figure it out.) he finally decided it wasn’t worth it and carried on with his two. ^^^
^^^i have this issue where i get so obsessed sometimes with one dish and eat it at least once a week, maybe twice a week, until i’m sick of it. right now that dish is the massaman curry from land thai kitchen. oh my gosh. that stuff is gooooood.^^^
^^^shopping with my husband is always an adventure. a lot of our time in the dressing room goes something like this.^^^
^^^just off-roading with their scooters at the track field.^^^
have a great week, friends!
