My birthday week was filled with lots of celebrations, including shopping at Draper James!
This Valentine's Day was the best one yet.. with two Valentines! Beau gave me the most precious gift of saying "mama" for the first time, and we loved lots of time together as a family!
Do y'all think this boy will always kiss his mama on Valentine's Day? If you've been around here any amount of time, you know that I love watching Counting On on TLC. Team Duggar!! Anyways, on Monday night's episode it was Jinger's wedding and during the wedding photos her groom, Jeremy leaned and gave his mom a kiss on the cheek while they were taking a photo together. I pray that Beau and I will always have that sweet of a relationship! Being a boy mama has been more joy than I ever could have dreamed.
On Saturday morning we went to brunch and I wore my new top from Draper James!
Beau's started to really enjoy the joovy scooter! It's so weird to see him gliding around the kitchen!
Sunday morning I went with some friends to CityStrong.. a workout ran by the bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe's finance Shawn Boothe and also by Carrie Underwood's personal trainer. The workout was killer and it was so weird being in there with Shawn and Kaitlyn. Kaitlyn is TEENY TEENY TINY.
Selfie with Shawn doing planks behind me! Like a goob.
Kayla's legs and then my legs.. doing our planks right in front of Shawn! Weird!!
Sweaty selfies towards the end of the workout.. I'm still sore! This fun Bachelor related experience almost made up for how terrible this season has been. I'll never stop watching though!
5: WHAT I’M DREADING:
6: WHAT I’M WORKING ON:
I've been in full planning mode for several things.. right now my focus is mostly on Beau's 1st Birthday party! It's going to be on May 6 which sounds like ages away, but it's really not. I've been gathering lots of inspiration and chatting with our amazing vendors. I can't wait to celebrate our boy!
7: WHAT I’M EXCITED ABOUT:
There are just so many fun celebrations coming up!
8: WHAT I’M WATCHING/READING:
I just finished reading Nine Women, One Dress by Jane L. Rosen, and am about to start My (not so) Perfect Life by Sophie Kinsella.. I'm not so sure about how much I'm going to like it though.
9: WHAT I’M LISTENING TO:
My Dallas people will know what I mean when I say I'm listening to lots and lots of The Kidd Kraddick Morning show... bc I'm SO happy about Kellie's engagement!
10: WHAT I’M WEARING:
I tried on this top last week and keep remembering it! I don't know how practical off the shoulder always is, but i loved the color of this blouse!
I'm making a sad face in this photo because I felt like this top was too short on me.. but looking at this photo I kind of think I could get over it because of how much I love the rest of the top. What do y'all think?
This isn't what I'm wearing.. but Beau is wearing sunglasses!
Is this what the kids are calling athleisure? I think I like it. ;)
11: WHAT I’M DOING THIS WEEKEND:
Time with the family is on the agenda! It's been a busy few weeks and we need that time!
12: WHAT I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT MONTH:
My new niece or nephew will be born in the next week and a half! I don't think I fully comprehend that I'm about to meet a baby that I love as much as I love my niece. I can't wait! It is also a kind of marker for lots of fun ahead.. my friend Polly is having her baby boy at the end of March, and in April we'll find out the gender of another one of my best friends' baby, celebrate Beau's first Easter, and then go to Disney World!
13: WHAT ELSE IS NEW:
I got a Cricut machine for my birthday, and it arrived a few days ago. On Monday I plugged it in and made the first "test" project and now I'm like okay what next. Haha! There's so much information out there on Pinterest but I feel like I need to master the design software first. Do any of y'all have one and have any tips? Should I just start experimenting and trying different things? I need to download a good monogram font asap. :)
