Friday, September 11, 2015


Aye yi yi. I made myself sit down and write this post because I have been putting off posting anything for a while. I swear one baby wakes up, then the other goes down. That one wakes up, and the other goes down. What happened to my kiddos napping together and giving me 2 hours of alone time to sit on my butt and watch Jimmy Fallon? So basically this is going to be another picture dump, what we've been up to post. This may be the start of me using my kids as an excuse not to post but seriously, where do the days go?! It's Friday and I am happy. We had a fabulous Labor Day weekend (with the exception of me getting food poisoning at one of my favorite burger places, that sucked) and rumor has it we have fall weather coming to Austin next week. Yay. We've been soaking up the last few bits of summer... lake time with friends, splash pad in the backyard, sweating our butts off on the deck. Last Friday night we started a new tradition in our home...First Fridays. We moved the couch from the backyard to the front, set up cornhole, and yard games, and had coolers of beer and popsicles and had our neighbors over. I wish I would have counted how many people we had but man my heart was overwhelmed. God has put so man wonderful people in our lives that we get to do life with. We live on kind of the main road of our subdivision (we live in a mega neighborhood and there are mini subdivisons) and it is one thing I hate about our house. People drive way too fast and I always wish we lived in a culdesac until First Friday. THIS is why God put us on the corner. We had so many slow drivers looking at our setup and even random people walk/bike by and join the fun. We plan on doing it the First Friday of every month and pray that we can foster relationships, start conversations, and show Jesus to our friends and neighbors.

Ford was in his element. He had 2 popsicles, 3 fruit snacks, and a bag of Fritos for dinner. Life is good when you are 2!

Lucy was turning heads at First Friday. Seriously I want 100 of her.

Saturday we were invited to a friend of Jon's boat and it was so great! Jon plays basketball here in the neighborhood and has made some really awesome friends so it was nice to leave the kiddos at home and get some adult time with some of Jon's buddies. We have stuck to going out every other weekend since middle of summer and I love it getting away with him. I can't tell you how nice it was to have the wind in my hair and enjoy a boat ride and adult conversation without a bunch of little people needing me!

Jon is from Cleveland, OH and lived there until college so it's always fun to see some of his friends from back home. One of his BFFs who was in our wedding came down with his family and we got some fun swimming time with them, their son is 2 months younger than Ford!


Monday we spent the day at Mimi and Papa's compound swimming, playing basketball, grilling, and relaxing. Pictured below, Lucy is obsessed with washcloths and sucking water off of them. Pool, bath, car....girlfriend is easily entertained.

Seriously, life is so good at Mimi and Papa's!

Dad I know this isn't the most flattering picture of you but how cute does Lucy look?!

Y'all. I just love the season that our family is in. Pretty much every one of our good friends is pregnant or just had a baby... this season is so life giving and joy filled (and exhausting, amen?). In the span of THREE days I got to visit and hold 3 sweet brand new babies of dear friends. And next week my nephew will be here!! I am not lying when I say you can get baby fever when you have a 4 month old at home! I just love watching my friends become mamas (most of them 2nd time mamas right now)!

Geesh if you've made it to the bottom of this post, you're a saint. I promise that if we talk in person I don't ramble this much! Let's see. What else is going on in our lives. Jon and I are leading our community group through Matt Chandler's The Mingling of Souls and I am also doing it with some ladies in the neighborhood. We are doing a missional community group training at our church on Thursday nights and that has been really good. Basically we are studying how Jesus calls us to live in community and make disciples, good stuff y'all. I am currently watching Jimmy Fallon and Ellen Degeneres' lip sync battle from Wednesday night. Omg. I love them. We are obsessed with the show Impractical Jokers...You Tube it. I made this recipe on Wednesday and it was one of the best things we've eaten in a while and it was silly easy. Ford still loves school and that makes me so happy! Lucy and I are enjoying our baby swim class and I am getting time to see friends and have grown up intentional conversations without a toddler running around.

Okay if I don't stop now I will start telling you about the laundry that I forgot to move from the washer to dryer last y'all!

One more thing, I can't believe it has been 14 years since 9/11. It never gets easier to remember the tragic day our country lost so many brave souls.

I absolutely love your First Friday idea, such an awesome way to love on your neighbors. I live in Austin too and now that the weather is cooling down it is the perfect time for this. I think I may have to implement First Friday in our neighborhood, thank you for the idea! :)

This place was amazing! Great food, it's smaller than others I guess but it is still a fair sized fun. The decor at venues in San Francisco was amazing as every note of music reverberates off the beautiful walls. Everything about this venue is nothing less than 5 stars.
