Friday No. 61

No. 1

Our Magic Bands arrived this week! Such a big marker for an upcoming Disney trip!! :) We're so so excited! If you have any Disney advice.. I'd love to hear it! The best thing so far has been working with our Mouse Counselor, Andrea. She's gone above and beyond. She's essentially a Disney Travel Agent who has been my magical fairy. And it's free. Why not support her and let her do all the heavy lifting? She's been amazing. If you're thinking about Disney.. email her and tell her I sent you! andrea@mousecounselors.com (I don't get anything from you using her.. I just think it'd be fun to tell her where you got her name!)

No. 2
Something that people always commented on when I was pregnant is how our home will never stay nice with kids. A kind note: that isn't encouraging. At all! This article featured tons of women talking about their light furniture and how they keep it clean with kids. Obviously Beau is only almost 11 months old.. but he's thrown up on almost everything (just being honest here!) and everything always comes out. Many of the mamas in the blog post talked about liking things being lighter because you know when to clean it.. and I completely agree. The granite in our current house really disguises dirt and I hate it!! I want to know when things are messy so I can clean it up! 

No. 3
My sweet Beau has had a rough week.. he cut two teeth! He's finally acting more like himself.. but he's just been a sleepy little boy! Yesterday he completely fell asleep during the middle of his haircut. It was so adorable and crazy because he just let his head hang there and he snoozed. We finished the haircut and moved him into his carseat and he slept the majority of the time my hair was getting done. 




No. 4
It's been a long time since I've shopped at Lilly Pulitzer.. I wore SO much Lilly while pregnant, and it burnt me out a little bit. :) But I saw this dress and fell in love!

No. 5

A few of y'all have seen on the news about the Texas storms and checked in.. Sunday night this is what our yard looked like! The hail was nuts. Our neighbors had totally destroyed windshields. It's insane! I actually wasn't home at the time of the storm.. we had homegroup about 30 minutes away and I didn't see anything bad at all. Ben had stayed home because he had been sick and he and Beau had to "take shelter" while a tornado was close by. My heart about exploded when I knew Beau was in his carseat in the closet. Praise God for keeping my sweet family safe! 

Happy Weekend y'all!!

  1. The size of the hail is huge! Glad you are all okay and hopefully no damage to anything. I cannot believe Beau fell asleep during a haircut-how stinking precious!

  2. I've had people tell me that our light furniture will be ruined once we have kids and that I won't be able to keep my house clean anymore, and like you, it's really frustrating to hear that! I loved reading that article because I want to tell those people that just because you're kids are messy doesn't mean that my kids will be the same way. I think it's all about how you raise them! I am so glad you shared that article!

  3. We had crazy hail here in Georgia last week! The photos of your son sleeping during his haircut is hilarious - poor guy. And the light colored furniture - how do I sell my husband on it?! Stopping over from the linkup - hope you can pop by my blog too! http://www.confessionsofanorthernbelle.com/2017/03/friday-favorites-74/

  4. Aww, the fact that Beau fell asleep during his haircut is just so sweet! How fun to have pictures of it as well!

    It was so encouraging to hear that all of the stains have come out of your light furniture! I too like light furniture and it's reassuring to hear that it will still be safe once our little kids come along!

  6. Yay for Magic Bands! We just went in September and it looks like they've already changed them up a bit. I did a post about our time in Disney if you want to check it out. The best advice I can give is to just have fun. We all want to see and do everything and squeeze it all into one trip, but if you focus on accomplishing your most important attractions, then you'll enjoy your time a lot better. Especially with traveling with a little one, you just never know what to expect and how they're going to react. Beautifully Candid

  8. Wow, that's crazy about the hail!! We haven't had too bad of weather recently but there were some tornado watches nearby last night. Thankfully we didn't get anything too bad.

  9. I am absolutely obsessed with the Lilly dress that you shared! Their swing dresses are just so flattering and it looks like it's actually a decent length (good for teachers like me!)

    Beau falling asleep in his haircut is absolutely precious!
