around here.

around here my Valentines Day flowers are still kicking a week later!
around here Brady finally finished him room from when we moved in almost 3 months ago!

T.G.I.F. finally!  From being off on Monday for Presidents Day, this week has seemed to go by at a snails pace.  Random piece of information, today is National Margarita Day, maybe we'll go to our favorite Mexican restaurant and have a margarita.  Yum.  Another random piece of information, tomorrow (Saturday) was the day Kevin proposed, 6 years ago!  So crazy to think I'm married, I never thought I would get married, honestly never wanted to until I met Kev. ♥  So anyways, we have zero plans this weekend which I love!  We are getting the house together, it's coming along.  My problem is I want the entire house to be decorated and painted right now, but I need to be more realistic and take it slowly.  I'd love to share house updates here when I get the rooms all pretty and picture worthy. 

Next week is my birthday week!  I have some fun posts planned too. I feel like I've been away from this space for awhile, life just gets busy ya know?  I go through phases for sure, but it always feels good to blog about life in general. 

Have a great weekend everyone!

presidents day.

Presidents Day is an American holiday that is celebrated on the third Monday in February.  After reading more about this holiday, it was an attempt to create more three-day weekends for the nation's workers.  Presidents Day is now viewed as a day to celebrate all U.S. Presidents, past and present.

Hadley learned in school this week, that Abraham Lincoln was the first president with a beard!  They made cute little top hat sticks of Lincoln.

For those of you off work today, enjoy your day!  For those of you at work, have fun! Hah!

around here.

around here Kevin went to Hadley's school for career day.  All the kids loved trying on all his gear!  Hadley even wore her fire department shirt.
around here Kevin sent me flowers at work for Valentines Day!  So sweet!
around here she was so excited for her Valentines Day party at school.  She wore the shirt Grandma Gail made, and wanted a photo at school in front of her box and goodies.
around here what I got Kev for love day, we are going to do that face mask together!  Should be fun.
around here playing with slime before bed.

TGIF!  Cheers to Friday and the weekend! The sun is shining and the weather looks to be pretty okay for the weekend.  Not frigid temperatures at least from what my app says.  Looking forward to getting more things done around the house, and maybe go out and do something!

Have a great weekend!

happy love day.

Happy love day!  Here is our mantle that I decorated earlier this month.  Nothing too extravagant, but cute.  I made this banner a few years ago out of burlap, cut the triangles, painted on the hearts and XO's, and glued twine to the back of it.  We use this banner every year!
Hadley loves The Little Mermaid, so she requested a mermaid box for her school party.  All I did was google mermaid background, and printed a few sheets off, and taped them on the lid to a shoe box.  For the characters, I printed them off, cut them out, and taped them onto blue cardstock paper to give them a little more support, and then cut a piece of thick cardstock, taped them to the back of the characters, and used it to hold them up.  She loves to be creative, so it was fun making this with her.

Nothing big planned for today, just enjoying the regular old Thursday!

Happy Valentines Day!

from the weekend.

We went to the Auto Expo this past weekend, she loved sitting in all the new cars.  And more so enjoyed getting her face painted with a lovely unicorn. 
Sunday after church, made a pit stop at Meijers to return some things.  While I was waiting for Kevin to pick me up, these birds were just chilling on the carts while it was blistery cold out!

Pretty chill weekend for us.  Took naps, cleaned the house, dreamed about new cars, went to church, and chilled some more.  Love weekends like those. 

Happy Monday!  Make it a great week!

These are the vitamins in my medicine cabinet at home.  I take the Multi For Her and the B12.  Kevin takes the One A Day for Men, and the B12.  I've been taking a multi-vitamin for years now.  We just recently started taking B12, so far I cannot tell a difference in any effects it might have.  In fact, I feel less energy lately so I don't know what that's about.  The older I get, the more important these things are to me. 

Our four year old Hadley takes a vitamin daily too, they make it so fun for kids.  She has been picking out Disney Princess gummies, and Anna and Elsa gummies.  Kids think they are eating candy since it tastes pretty good, which is awesome for getting kids to take vitamins. 

Does anyone take Elderberry?  I have these in my Amazon cart right now, but my question is how many different vitamins can you take all at the same time?  Does one have different effects if taken with another?  I guess that's a question for the doctor, or my BFF Google.

What vitamins do you take everyday?
