{April Recap}

Y'all - it's almost May!!  That means Hobby Lobby will be putting out fall stuff soon!! Ha! =)

Like I said last week, April is by far my busiest month of year.  If I can survive the next week, life will be way less stressful.  Because it's been so crazy lately, it has forced me to reevaluate a few things & I feel some changes coming on.  Nothing super exciting or anything, just time to clear up my schedule a little bit & focus more on things I enjoy.

Anyway, so a quick recap of the past week!

I stopped by & visited this precious boy one evening.  Can y'all believe he's 6 weeks old?!  
We had an absolutely gorgeous weekend!  I cool front blew in Saturday morning & it honestly felt like fall.  I spent the entire day outside replanting some grass that had died in a few spots & mowing.  
When I was at Lowes, I saw these & thought - hey!  I should try & plant my own pumpkins.  If it doesn't work, I'm out $2.50 & if they do grow - I save a ton!  Any tips or pointers from you gardeners out there?!  Otherwise I am just going to put them in some dirt, water them & hope for the best!
Monday meeting, Tuesday meeting, Wednesday meeting...see - told ya!  Last night, the Blue Bell Relay for Life team served crawfish at the annual CCA banquet.  It's a ton of work, but we have a great time...and they make a donation to the American Cancer Society/Relay For Life so it's all for a great cause.  We pregame with a drink or two because believe me - we definitely need an attitude adjustment before dealing with 600+ {mostly drunk} people! =)
Colby & Jodie went so mom & dad kept Bo.  They were still at the house when I got home, so I stopped by for a few baby snuggles.
There's another busy weekend in store & then next week is Maifest.  One more crazy busy week & then life should get a little less stressful.  Happy Friday & have a great weekend!

{Easter & Life Lately}

Happy Monday!  Hope everyone had a great Easter weekend.  I enjoyed my extra day off, but man did it fly by!!  I have concluded that between work, committees I am involved in, etc - April is by far my busiest month of the year.  Seriously, I think I have something almost every day, night & weekend.  

Here's a quick recap of the past week!

Last Tuesday, Amy, Khloe, Mason & I went to the A&M baseball game.  After a rainy day, the sun came out & it ended up being a really pretty evening.
On Wednesday, Nola spent the day at doggy daycare.  It was their Easter party...can't you tell she's thrilled?!  I am pretty sure she hates me sometimes for what I put her through. =)
I spent Good Friday working in the yard & around the house most of the day.  I had several spots in my yard die so I am working on replacing St. Augustine.  I power washed the house & porch and starting repainting my outdoor chairs.  Needless to say, I was wiped by Friday night!  Saturday we spent the day at Colby & Jodie's celebrating her birthday & Easter with her family.  And y'all - I stepped up my cookie game this time...check them out!!  I was pretty proud...that cookie class we took in December is really paying off. =)
Sunday we went to sunrise service at church {we have it outside in the garden}.  Candlelight Christmas Eve service is my absolute favorite, but this is a close second. 
I came home & went back to bed a for a while & then got up and made homemade donuts!  Not that I needed them {no, I didn't eat them all!!}, but it was something fun to do on a special day.
Sunday evening I headed out to my grandma's, complete with our annual baseball game, walk & egg hunt.
Needless to say, by this morning - this is how Nola & I both were feeling:
{this was actually her on Sunday afternoon while I was washing sheets}
And now it's Monday & here we go again...hope it's a great one!

{Friday Favorites}

Happy Friday!! Today I am linking up with Andrea, Erika & Narci and sharing some of my favorites!

This little guy is definitely one of my favorites.  I mean seriously y'all, how cute is he?!
These 2 girls are also my favorites.  Nola is terrified of riding in the car, but once we get to the ballpark {to watch my nephew play} - she LOVES all the attention {& snow cones} she gets.
Girl's nights that involve my favorite ladies & my favorite margaritas are definitely my favorite!  Y'all, if you have never tried a margarita with a shot of amaretto -  try it!!  It's DELICIOUS!!
My deck mini-makeover is definitely my favorite!  When I first moved into my house, I thought I wanted to add "color" to my decor so I did lots of navy...including navy patio cushions with aqua accents. Well, let's face it, I am a black & white girl so I sold everything on a local garage sale website & got all new and I am in LOVE with this corner.  I still want to add some patio lights, but it's definitely my new favorite spot!
Speaking of my deck mini-makeover, I shared this pic on my Instagram feed {you can follow me here} & tagged Target {because that's where the rug, pillows & throw are from} & y'all - they asked to share my pic on some of their social media & started following cool is that?! =)

Those are my Friday Favorites!  Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!
