Fun afternoon

This afternoon when I got home Dave already had the kids and I was chatting with Krystal. We decided to head over to see her and Oliver for a little bit. 
Shades on and the windows down, another beautiful afternoon. Alayna was so excited to wear her dress. She has been begging me lately to wear it but it's been way too cold. Well today was her lucky dress wearing day! 
We got there and put Oliver in his stroller and took him for his first ride in it. Kaya got to go for a walk too since I pushed the stroller. I think he really liked it and only fussed towards the end but he was hungry. 
We explored the pool which was freezing then went over to their playground. The kids loved the park, they pretty much always love exploring new parks! 
Krystal and I headed back to the apartment while Dave and the kids played. I enjoyed getting to spend time with my sister and nephew, love them! When we were leaving Alayna asked Krystal if she can come back next time, she loved the park and getting to see the baby. We will definitely be going to their pool in the summer, it looked awesome!! 

Great end to my day! Love my peeps!!

My sister sent me a few pictures of my nephew and his 1 month pictures. Can we say cuteness overload?? This little guy has stolen my heart, love my nephew!! And how is he already a month old, time needs to slow down just a little bit! Then again I can't wait until he's older and we can take him fun places like the zoo!! He has no clue all the fun that will come his way!

Hello Mr. Sun


Yesterday when I walked out of work thinking oh great I forgot a jacket I got the best surprise. It was WARM!!! The heavens opened up and the angels sang lol ok maybe just in my head that happened but let's just say this girl was happy. I knew right then and there Teddy would be going on a walk and I would enjoy the warm air and natural vitamin D without a hoodie yay!!!! 
Happy happy happy
Come July I will probably be hating the heat haha but right now I LOVE it. 
I didn't do our normal long walk but we both enjoyed the walk we got. Teddy has become whiney lately and I truly think it's because he wants his long walks daily. Well sorry to tell him but if it's freezing and or raining he isn't getting one. BUT No whiney Teddy yesterday thankfully! :)
We had some dinner when Dave got home then watched tv all evening. We are so lazy at night but after working all day and working out I am just done. It is what it is :) 
Before I get back to work I found this on pinterest and loved it so I had to share. No matter how your day unfolds I hope it is a good day overall!

Rain rain go away

Our Sunday was all rainy and cold but that didn't stop us from having fun! 

We got up and went to church for the 10:15 service. Then we headed to the outlets with the Newmans to kill some time before lunch at 1. We wandered around a little bit then met up with Ashley and Jesse at Carters. She got him a few things and we got Alayna some pjs which she very much needed. We got some on sale so 3 sets of pjs for $19 which was not bad at all. 
Sweet boy playing with his jaquar while mommy shopped. 

We went to Jim N Nick's and it was amazing. I had not been in at least 2 years or longer and it was as good as I remembered. 

Jesse getting some loving from his mimi. We enjoyed our lunch so much and holy cow the salad Ashley recommended was AMAZING, seriously I wish I could have one for lunch today! Luckily that place is a little out of the way or it would be my new obsession and I would probably have one a few times a week. 
Dave and I headed home after lunch because the weather was so yucky. We layed around watching tv but then I felt like I really needed to workout. Mainly because him and I shared a piece of PB pie at lunch soooooo I needed to burn some calories. 
I headed to the gym for 45mins and he played video games. I came back made our lunches for today (monday) then we layed around the rest of the night. We weren't that hungry for dinner so I made a smoothie just to have something. It was delicious! 
Here are the pj's I got Alayna, cute right? She will love them! 

Well time to get to work!! 

Happy Monday!

Go Stingrays!

Saturday was so fun if I do say so myself! 

Dave woke up at 6:45 to head to a concealed weapons class which was supposed to last until 4:30. However since he is active duty and has had certain training he only had to stay until noon. I was excited because he could spend the rest of the day with me. 

Around 1 we arrived downtown to the Citadel basketball game to watch Lola and Isabelle cheer during half time. They looked so cute and they did really well. 

Shannon, Dave and myself up top and me and mommy down below. We were all there to cheer them on! Theresa, David and grammy were there too but they had different seats. 


The cheerleaders doing their thing! 
She looks older than 8 right?? She's growing up wayyyyy too fast. 
These 2 are so silly together! 

We got our picture with the Citadel Bulldog!! 

We headed over to mom and dads to spend time with the family. I of course got some super sweet Oliver snuggles. 


Dave got some beagle snuggles haha he was passed out and she climbed up there and went to bed. 

We headed out to Target before going home to get a few things including Logans birthday gifts! I think he is going to love them!! 

We watched more Breaking Bad then passed out! I swear we never stay up past 10:30 anymore haha we are old I guess plus we had to get up early for church.

Is it summer yet?

Sunday was finally a warm day even though it was cloudy it made me want warm summer days so badly. We did enjoy the warmth though with some time outside. 
First up was a workout for me then breakfast. Instead of church at 10:15 we went with the Newmans to the 11:45 service because there was a Newcomers lunch right after. I am not a newcomer but Dave, Mike and Ashley still kind of are and had never attended the lunch. Pastor Chris told me I could come because I had invited them :) 
So let's talk about the food for a second. They had amazing fried chicken, Mrs. Janets AMAZING mac n cheese, coleslaw, and rolls. Seriously my taste buds were in heaven! Then they came around bringing us little things of ice cream from Baskin Robbins. Yeah my eating better went out the window and I will say that meal was worth it. Haha 
After we ate he had people from different areas stand up and tell us about what they do in the church. Dave was interested in security and I signed up for more info on first impressions (greeting people, directing them to areas etc). We enjoyed our lunch with the Newmans. I love having friends at church it reminds me of back in the day when my parents had a ton of friends at church and we knew everyone. It is not like that now but it can be one day! 
How cute are they! Alayna loves her some Jesse! 
We headed to my sisters house so Dave could help my dad gut my sisters room because he will be re-doing it for her this week. While they did all that the kids and I headed to the backyard for trampoline fun!! They LOVED the trampoline and stayed there until almost time to  leave. Unfortunately the last 5 mins were not great since somebody jumped off the trampoline WWE style onto their sister. Lol BOYS! Luckily they were both fine minus losing gaming privledges which is the only real punishment to him that means anything. 


When we got home Alayna wasn't done playing so her and I walked over to the little park area at the apartment. She had fun for a good 15minutes but there were a lot of crazy kids playing and it was making me nervous.  
So we walked around and decided to see how cold the pool is. Her face will tell you it was COLD! I had no plan to put my feet in but she insisted so I did. 
We headed back home, hung out, had dinner then Dave took them to their mom. We had a pretty good weekend with them. Next time they are here we will be doing a little birthday celebration for Logan. I think he will enjoy it, I know the cake will be awesome, there will be pizza and a few friends! :) what more do you need? We are hoping the weather is nice so they can all go out and play but if not the apartment has plenty of toys! 

Speaking of weather, it's tuesday and wr had a delayed entry to work (10am) because of "freezing" rain which I donmt think has even showed up yet. That's ok I enjoyed waking up later, taking my time getting ready and grabbing chikfila for breakfast! 

Hopefully the rest of the week won't be so gloomy but we shall see! I want some sunshine!

Some Saturday fun

 This picture is from Friday but I liked it, the boys eating their ice cream :)

Saturday morning I woke up at 6:45.... yeah I guess I am an adult now because I seriously wake up early most days. It is rare for me to actually sleep past 8 besides last Sunday when it was like 9.  I played on my phone then the kids were up and I decided to be nice to Dave and let him sleep until 9. So I got them breakfast and we hung out for a bit, I even painted Alaynas nails which she loved. I also may have bribed her that if she ate her breakfast she could wear her halloween costume. It worked! haha
 One thing about Alayna which I think is funny is how often this chick says my name. I probably heard her say Sara or Hey Sara a good thousand times lol 
 Once Dave woke up I took Teddy on a walk, *see below* I was just not in the mood for the gym but definitely didn't want to just not do anything. It was better than nothing that is for sure and Teddy loves getting to go for those long walks. You know he gets to see other people, dogs and pee on everything in sight. haha
 After I cooked us lunch Dave and the kids headed to a park and I headed to James Island to hang with the fam. I ended up getting into a James Bond movie with dad before everyone and I mean everyone came over. haha there was a house full of people. Krystal and Oliver came over so we got some time with them. Then Dave and the kids showed up, THEN my Aunt Christine, cousins Kimberly and Amanda, Amandas baby Adriana. THEN my Aunt Theresa, Aunt Susan and grammy got there. Yeah I told you I meant everyone, ok not EVERYONE but yeah a good bit of the family. It was really nice to be with them all for a few hours. We got some quality family time in. 


 This little girl was loving her some baby time. She held both babies and kept asking to hold them again. She was in love, of course I don't blame her because I definitely am too. 

 I love this picture minus her finger in her ear. Pretty sure she may have an ear infection now because she has been messing with it all day today (sunday). Future cousins watching some tv with my dad. 

 Theresa's first time holding Mr. Oliver. Then after she held him she told Alayna that she is the best babysitter because if she babysits and you want cookies for dinner she would let you have them haha she's not kidding either. Theresa is one of those people who is pretty much ok or down for anything :) 
 Loving on Adriana
 I am sure Kodie is thinking what on earth does this kid have in my face, go away! haha

 We hung out for a few hours then headed home for baths and dinner. I ordered pizza because I was so not in the mood to cook. I am pretty sure Dave and the kids didn't mind, they love them some pizza. 
 This was the sky on my way home it was SO pretty. 
This is out of order but while we were at my parents house Dave and Alayna went outside to blow bubbles. Everytime she comes to my parents house she wants to blow bubbles and mom always has some there. They really enjoyed some quality father daughter time. 

I would say our saturday was pretty darn good and ended it with some Breaking Bad (our new addiction) then off to bed. We always stay pretty busy when the kids are here which I don't mind but man I am TIRED. haha I just always want them to have a good time so we make it a point for that to happen.  Oh and I asked Logan what his favorite part of the day was and he said the babies. It wasn't just her that loved them he did too. He thought they were just so cute and kept going over to them to look at them. 

The kids just left and Logan gave me a hug, how cute. Seriously a year ago he wouldn't even talk to me haha now we are buddies. 

Hope yall had a great weekend. I will blog about our Sunday later!!
