The weekend at the beach kind of left us wanting summer - we could just skip right over spring break and head into June. The weather has been so hot and my wardrobe is confused. I started the week unable to pick out a single thing to wear and ended up in stripes and floral. Didn't hate it... didn't quite think it was the best.
Wednesday night I settled in for This is Us. Wine is necessary to make it through each week. Y'all. You HAVE TO WATCH THIS SHOW!!!
This scene got me. My grandmother died when I was 20 and the last thing she wanted to do was go to the beach with me and mom on our annual trip. My Nanan and Aunt drove her to College Station and she and I headed to Port Aransas alone in the car. It was a long four hours of her sleeping, getting sick and eating nothing by apples and cheese. I still can't eat a fruit and cheese tray without thinking of Grandmother. I wish my 20 year old self would have recognized the gift that those hours in the car were.
By the next morning I was all smiles with a fresh made breakfast a la Emmy and Landry.
(Feel free to ignore that puffy face.)
The weather was way too beautiful to sit inside so Kayla and I brought our work to the balcony. Talk about an office with a view!
I was asked to pick six songs for a little CD mixing and y'all... I couldn't pick six songs. It was so so so much harder than I thought it would be. In the end, I selected 6 that made the most sense for the receivers of the CD and I'm so stinking pumped to post what this is for SOOOOOON!
You know that moment when you think, "Man. I am rocking at this parenting gig. My children are well fed, well read, well bred you could say."
Yeah. Me either.
Please try not to be intimated by my parenting skills. I looked up at dinner and saw this. Somewhere behind those boxes are two little girls and their big brother.
Friday morning Cindy and I had a make-up Valentine/pre birthday breakfast date. We solved all the world's problems per usual and managed to make it to work on time.
She gave me my birthday present early and if you know anything about me at all then you know that this mustard yellow tote was PERFECT!
My students had a fundraiser bright and early on Saturday morning. Drew is an exec from last year and could hand's down run all of these events in my absence. This is basically us for every picture. Me making sure I'm on the right side, him combing his hair and making fun of me.
This group of freshmen and their team had over FOUR HUNDRED runners at this event and raised over $1200 for our service events.
And this crew is always behind the scenes making it happen. Love my job and the work that I get to do!
ESPECIALLY on days like this!
I ordered this darling little cross body from Stella and Dot at the close of my party and could not love it more. The strap comes completely off and it's small enough to be wallet. DARLING.
My early birthday celebrations continued with a visit from Gigi and Pops. Y'all. I am ridiculously spoiled. And I love it!
How cute are these pjs? I was actually there when my mom got them and totally forgot about them. I do that all the time which basically makes me the easiest person to shop for because I was so dang excited about them! Super comfortable and the perfect thing as me and Rad finish out the series.
These cuties opened up a "reshdront" for us on Sunday morning. Know what's cuter than little kids spelling big words?
Sunday afternoon was our big birthday celebration for mom. We all headed to Christopher's for a fantastic brunch. Seriously so good!! (Thanks, Pops!)
The sun was definitely shining and I can't stop laughing at all these pictures.
After brunch the kids went to play dates and the grownups headed to OPAS for Jersey Boys! Such a fun day celebrating the best momma I know!
And that's us in an instant! Have a great week!
