These posts have been lacking lately, mostly because: I hated doing these posts with only instagram photos, and not because: I haven’t been enjoying things, because I have. Even in the crappiest of times (or not so crappiest of times) you’ve gotta look for the little things that can still bring a smile to your face. I miss you, pictures of recently enjoyed things, I miss you. No… I never got my camera working… and I’m in no position to spend money on a new one, so I’m borrowing one of my brothers cameras for the time being 🙂 In general, I feel like life update posts have been kinda-sorta missing around here. And while this doesn’t give you a full on life-update (not that you are asking for one anyway— I’m sure you’re not), this does give you a quick glimpse into some of the things I’ve been really enjoying lately 😉 Moods have been picking up around here and a lot of really good moments, things, and opportunities, have been popping up. It’s been quite nice 🙂
mama baby lunch together.
taco time and gym shoes.
Tuesday dates with friends.
This day. Not so enjoyable when even a lollipop and video will not help your kid stop pointing and screaming at nothing… but nice to be able to look down at your kid and think “man. I love you even in the difficult moments”
Easter package from grandma (*abuela*). Admittedly, I don’t do much, or plan to do much for Marlowe on Easter. I’m not religious and buying a bunch of (mostly unnecessary) things to put into a basket doesn’t really appeal to me. That being said, part of me still really loves how into easter my mom is and I adore (ADORE) how thoughtful she is when it comes to gift-giving. I do plan on possibly making a few items for Marlowe next year, when she will (hopefully) appreciate it more… This year we bought a (well worth it) zoo membership and went on a search for birds and bunnies (hello new park, play area, distraction on hard days, spot to tire out your little one, and learning tool). Not featured in picture: a new bikini for me from my momma. Can’t wait to use it this week (the truck is going on a few day vacation)! Also: THIS was last year (Marlowe’s first easter).
mama baby walks, stroller free, holding hands— theres nothing better.
coffee (tea) dates in an empty shop with a friend.
an enjoyable and delicious dinner with a friend and (a surprisingly) well-behaved toddler.
ponytails and a few minute distraction so mama can finish up dinner.
smock dress: starbugaloo
&a mostly clean, sunny home.
(Yes, there’s not one, but two floral couches now. I’ve moved a few things around for a more conversation friendly home. I swear the floral couches find me, I don’t find them.)
Today is my last day of work for a whole week. I’ve got two mini road trips, lots of friends, lots of family, and lots of food planned. I am excited. Have a wonderful Tuesday and a wonderful week!
