This weekend!!! You guys, I don’t know what it was, maybe a culmination of everything and just how crazy the past few weeks have been (#toddlerlife, #2YEARMOLARS), and also remembering to keep a positive attitude, but this weekend was SO good! And we didn’t even do anything crazy, it was just, good. And aren’t those the best kinds of weekends? The ones where you don’t have a booked schedule, where you just kind of go with the flow, do what sounds fun at the time, and enjoy who you’re with so much you could burst?! That was this weekend, in a nutshell. And now, here is this weekend, in photos and more words. ;)
On Sunday we actually made it to church (cue angel chorus!) Ha! But seriously, I’m sad to admit that we haven’t gone to church in weeks. But! We got up and were all ready and Sophie napped perfectly and Sam had a great morning and had slept well the night before (high fiiiive!) and we were ready and out the door (and even got a few family photos before!) and were only 10 minutes late to church, which for our church means you’re practically on time!! And it was Sam’s first day in the 2/3 year old room, which is less like “nursery” and more like pre-school (!), so I was kind of nervous for how he would do, but he did fabulously!! He loved it and was so happy when we walked in to pick him up. And he even made this adorable little art. Which, like, I am well aware as his mother I am one of the few people who find this to be the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen. ;) But seriously. I love it!!! And it’s currently on display, duh.
And then I had visions of him in actual school, and Zack was like, “Yeah. You’re going to be a mess.” So true. So so true.
Also, this happened this weekend, so obviously I was in literal heaven. :)
I also did a bit more shopping at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale (uh duuuuuuhhhh)- I got these OTK boots that I am SO excited for! And this adorable pillow that I’ve been wanting forever, and these lace-up flats in blush! Loooove!
Annnnd happy Mondayyy! It’s supposed to be in the 100’s all week, so YAY. Looks like lots of early mornings for us. :/
Anybody have fun activities to do indoors with a toddler??
It looks like you did have a wonderful weekend!
As for the craft projects question…I did a painting project with my little one about a week ago (http://www.rosierambles.com/2016/07/easy-painting-project-for-little-ones.html) and it was a HUGE hit. AND super easy.
Have a lovely day!
Oh my gosh, that looks SO fun!! And it turned out really pretty too! :) Thank you for sharing- I’m definitely going to try it out! Sam would LOVE that.
Love those shoes you picked up! Looks like a fun weekend.

Aw thanks girl!! I’m excited to style them! :)
Those go with the flow weekends are always my absolute favorites! Those seem to provide the best days and the best memories!
Aren’t they the BEST weekends?! I totally agree :)
I stumbled upon your blog just recently, and let me say I have fallen in love. Your family is so beautiful, I definitely love the kinds of weekends you have. I can’t wait for our little addition to be here in September so we can make even more memories together! I love that pillow you got too, so adorable!
Awww Mariah!! Thank you for your sweet comment!! You seriously made my day :) I’m so glad you found my blog! And CONGRATS on your baby on the way! Oh, your life is about to change in the most wonderful way!
Hi, Katie! I love your blog about your family! I started following along a couple of weeks ago. Your children are beautiful!
About indoor toddler activities, I have four children: two teens and two little ones (plus baby #5 on the way; we love big families!). For my little ones (ages 3 and 13 months) I create “fun boxes” for them. The fun boxes are more for my toddler, but I put one or two fun toys for my baby, too. When my toddler gets bored, I pull a fun box out (or she asks for one). I fill the fun box with puzzles, sticker books, little coloring books, and other little toys. I get them from Dollar Tree and Target One Spot. Cheap little toys that I know will keep her busy for at least 30 minutes. It’s a good time filler, especially on the days we have to be inside!
Jennifer, thank you SO much for your sweet comment!! I’m so glad you found my blog! :) Congrats on baby #5, too- that is amazing! I’m in awe of you! Thanks for the tip too- I LOVE that idea and I know Sam would love it, too! I’m totally going to make him a fun box :) Target Dollar Spot, here I come!
Your kiddos have the BIGGEST grins, they are so precious! And love the denim on denim on denim on denim. :)
Hahaha denim for lyyyyyfe!
Scavenger hunts are great and still allow you to do other things at the same time (find something blue…soft…that makes noise). Good luck!
