Fun Weekend

A recap of my weekend, it only took me until Wednesday to get to it! I have no excuse except pure laziness! So here we go..
 This is actually from last Wednesday, I got my hair colored. The red will last only a few weeks then it will just be brown with the blonde.
 On Friday Dave finally got his new tires and rims put on. These rims have been in our garage for quite awhile so I am glad he finally got them put on. Normally the car stuff doesn't interest me at all but I do like these ones better than the old ones. He sold the old ones yesterday so finally there are no rims sitting in my garage.
  Mom gave me a bunch of clippings from her yard and they are looking amazing!! Once they all have a good root system going I will move them around to other areas but for now they stay where they are.  I love gardening and having pretty things all over my yard! Now if only my palm tree would look better we would be in business.
 Random picture of Logan from Friday night that I loved
Saturday after the gym we went to the exchange for me to buy a gift for Keno and I ended up buying this for myself and then one for my Keno gift. You know your gift is good when it gets stolen and mine was stolen a few times.
Alayna and I sent this selfie to the boys and they sent us this one back!

We had plans to meet our friends later Saturday afternoon to paint pottery. They ended up having too much fun on the beach which I cant blame them so we ended up going ahead and painting.
 I almost had a cheap step mom moment and wanted to go home but I knew they were excited so we went ahead and did it. This place was not cheap but it was fun. They were also PACKED so Dave and I didn't get to paint. I definitely want to go back with our friends and hopefully when it is not as busy. Ashley we need to figure out another day to go :)


 With their creations! We got them back yesterday and they look AWESOME!
Later that evening I headed over to Angels for Keno (Like Bingo) with the girls. I used to be part of the Keno group years ago and since she moved back she talked me into coming to this one. I had a great time and ate way too many yummy things. I am sure I will go again but not consistently.
While I was at Angels Dave and the kids had dinner then a movie night with popcorn! He said they had a lot of fun, it's important for him to have that time with just the kids.

 Angel, me, Julie and Susan! Fun fact, Julie and Susan photographed our entire wedding! I also met Julie and Angel through Keno years ago so it's cool that years later we are all still friends!

 Sunday we skipped church because we all stayed up late on Saturday night. We got dressed to run to the Commissary to get a few things since we couldn't go on Saturday. So we get there and there is a LuLaRoe trailer and of course I had to go check it out. Dave ended up buying me a dress which I love!!
 Dave also got me some beautiful flowers. I absolutely LOVE having a vase of flowers in my house! The flower obsession I have is real yall.  
  As per usual we went to my parents house on Sunday afternoon to hang out and have dinner with them. They had beaufort stew *YUM* and mom made two cobblers. I always love my time with my family! We are supposed to go with them out in the boat tomorrow and I am just praying the rain goes away because it will be so much fun!
We have had VBS this week and the kids are having a BLAST! I have pictures to post but I will wait for the end of the week and just make one big VBS post!
Happy HumpDay!

Low Key

 Since the 4th things have been pretty low key around here which I am thankful for. I went back to work Wednesday through Friday while Dave stayed home and hung out with the kids.
 Wednesday night we went over to my sisters pool to play for an hour. I enjoyed my time playing with bubs.

whhhhhyyyyy are these pics so small?!?!?! This picture sizing issue is really on my nerves but I have no idea how to fix it so I guess I need to accept it sooner rather than later.

 Thursday night Dave worked on his car while me and the kids hung out. I also did something I said I would never do. For dinner we all had something different, I had tacos, Logan had pancakes (not frozen like I legit made them) and Alayna had pb&j with cut up apple slices. I must have been feeling extra nice that night to make so many different things haha
After dinner we did a few roman candles and sparklers we had left then bed time!
 Friday we were supposed to go to Whirlin Waters at 3 because they do half price tickets after that time. We were packed, dressed and in the car on our way there and the sky was BLACK.
 We still held out hope until we saw a ton of lightning and we knew it wasn't happening. Luckily my parents, sis, niece and nephew were close by playing so we changed clothes real quick and met up with them.  

 The kids got to play for almost 2 hours so they had a blast and were no longer really upset about not getting to go to the waterpark. We went to Wendys for dinner after we left there and then at 7 they went back to mommy. We get them back this Friday for another week too!

 Saturday night we had some crazy lightning with a full moon so I decided to try and capture some pictures.

We also got this new sign on Friday and hung it up on Sunday night after we got back from my parents house. I love it!!
I also need to stop watching fixer upper because I want to clear out my house and totally redecorate luckily I have no money so that's not an option. Maybe one day.....

4th of July

Tuesday was my last day of my 5 days off which also happened to be the 4th of July. We had made plans with our friends a few weeks back to hang out with them and keep it low key. After seeing so many things in the news festivals/large crowds now make me super nervous so I knew we were not going to attend any of those. We hung out at home until 2:30 then headed over to the Packs.
 We went to the pool for about an hour which was a lot of fun. The pool isn't quite bath water yet so it was still refreshing. Give it another week and it may be a different story.

 We got back to their house, everyone changed and we just hung out.
After dinner the kids played with toys outside and the adults played corn hole one of our favorites.

 It started to get darker outside so we brought out the sparklers and roman candles. We had planned only to do those for the evening and luckily we didn't spend more money than that. There were a few families in their culdesac that put a bunch of money together and bought $1k worth of fireworks so needless to say we had a spectacular show that night.


 These two were inseparable and had a blast playing together all night.


 There is a good chance this is where you can find us next year for the 4th! You can't beat an amazing firework show that involves zero crowds.
