Currently. {Vol. 2}

Here's to another installment of the latest and greatest happenings around the house. Enjoy!



Whoa. Audio books. My boys have discovered the greatness of audio books. Austin goes down for a nap at some point (remember I gave up on those), and the headphones (similar - the point is that they are noise-limiting) go on. And all is quiet. It is glorious. Glorious.




Yep. I made a minion. It was so much fun, too! I especially love the banana candies. I mean, hello? You HAVE to have bananas if you are going to make a minion. So, the cake was a banana cake with a banana cream cheese frosting. Yum! Speaking of that... I have some cake in the fridge...


Here comes the sun. And, you know what that means, right? The zoo!! Of course, everyone in the state of Alabama stole my idea... Not cool. We didn't stay long. I got them to leave with the promise of ice cream. There were just WAY too many people. Can't wait for Spring Break to be over here... We want our zoo back. Ha!

So, for now the backyard will have to do. There seem to be a few creatures of interest back there. In fact, Austin found AND CAUGHT a grasshopper. On the first try, people. You don't even want to know how many time it took me... He just went in there and grabbed him. Little explorer man, that one. Anyway, hopefully, we won't be in this backyard for much longer. Soon, I hope to share our new home with you. Keep the prayers a-coming! We really do appreciate them!!


I can give you a sneak peek though! This is my new backsplash that will be installed soon!! The gorgeous granite is already in place. Y'all. I cried when I was sent the photos of the new kitchen. It was even more beautiful than I could ever imagine. I cannot wait to cook all kids of goodness in there for my family!!



For now, while we keep the house as clean as the day we first moved in, this will do for now.

The Boys' First Fun Run

Andrew and Alex ran in their first 1-mile fun run this past Saturday - so exciting!

Our friend, Becky, was doing the marketing for the Junior League of Birmingham and asked if we wanted to come. Sure, why not? These guys have a TON of energy. Let's do it! It was the perfect day for it at an awesome venue - Regions Field!! Go boys!!

Talking numbers before the race

Alex at the start line. Andrew is standing next to him, but you cant see him...

And, they are off!! Go boys!!

Andrew is circled. Go Andrew!!

Here comes Andrew after his first lap around the stadium!!

Alex jumps back in with Daddy's help on the last lap. Andrew is inside on the left of the circle. Alex is with Jason.

Our little runners with their medals!! Yay!!

Beach Week!!

Yes, beach week!! Austin and I tagged along on Jason's business trip last week to Panama City Beach. And, y'all. It was fabulous. Sure, it might have been Spring Break for the kids...which apparently, I am not... Wow. I mean, like, wow. There are no words. But, luckily, I figured that most would still be in their hungover slumber in the morning, which is perfect to hang out at the beach. It was GREAT! My husband is great! He knows exactly where to take me when I need to relax...

The beach... I love the beach. The sand, the waves, the sounds, the salty air. A piece of heaven.

Anyway, here is a look at all the fun Austin and I had in Panama City Beach and Destin. Oh! If you are reading this in an email, you may want to click through. Also, turn it up! Enjoy the beachy goodness!

Weather Whiplash

Last week there was snow.
Today it is raining and 54.
Tomorrow the high is 74. Sweet.
Wait...Thursday there could be snow?!

WHAT IS GOING ON HERE?!

While I wrap my head around the fact that people in these parts are going to be purchasing sunscreen AND French toast supplies, take a look at some of the fun we had last week. What is she talking about?? Yes, people in this area hear the word "snow" at just a whisper and they all go running to buy milk, bread, and eggs... I have lived here for almost 8 years and I STILL have no idea why. It is the strangest thing ever.

Yeah, it is pretty. But, I am happy that it was  gone by the end of the day. Very happy.
