Girls, girls, girls..

I have been so lucky to go out and enjoy a few nights without any kids and with lots of good friends and great food. Jake has been an amazing husband and father.. he just knows I need a break, so he watches our kids without any complaints. He knows that I will be checked into a hospital otherwise:) Over this last weekend Tara, Jamie, Angie, and I planned a night out and to go to our drill/dance team alumni concert. I seriously don't think I have laughed that hard in maybe 2 years. I was laughing so hard, tears were literally streaming down my face. THANK YOU ANGIE! :) Here is a few pictures from each night!

Okay so who doesn't absolutely love the sun shining and warm weather? We have done nothing but made our plans just strictly to being outside. Isaiah talks about riding his bike every hour of every day... London just waits by the door until I take her out just like a puppy dog.. the minute I placed her in her walker.. she went crazy (as you can see in the video). Is it just me or does it seem like I am constantly laughing when watching my kids do stuff? I think everything they do is funny minus, crying or talking back.

I have been busy this week and think I will stay busy for quite a while. There is always something for me to be doing, whether it be for the boutique, housework, or projects.. and in between I will be taking the kids outside to play. This is a good week so far and I am looking forward to my Saturday night with my girlfriends..

Back from the Mile High City

Here is a few pictures and clips of the highlights of our trip to surprise Jake's mom for her 50th birthday party.. We had a good time, as you can tell.

Video clips:

(don't mind me yelling at Jake to watch.. sooo typical)

Absolutely nothing.

Okay so nothing new is going on here in our home.. but I have to report a really funny thing Isaiah said. He was sitting outside and had his head up to the sun and wouldn't move... and when asked what he was doing he responded with.."Just getting some vitamin D." I wonder who taught him that? Must be his Nana Karen..:)
Also guilty enough.. yes I watch Days of our Lives and I saw this girl on it that reminded me of an older version of London..

Alright well we had lots of fun this week and weekend.. almost too much fun. Jake started out the week by celebrating my birthday a little bit every day.. from waking up to a gift card for my "special drink" to flowers to surprising me and taking me shopping.. to a nice dinner with friends and family. I also was able to get my hair colored and cut. Thank you to Amanda for being the best hairstylist and thank you Tara, Debra, Danielle, and my mom for watching my nutty kids off and on throughout the week. I feel like I've been a better mom this week.. maybe it's because I was being spoiled:) Then this weekend we had two birthday parties for two special boys to attend to. Our Saturday was absolutely eventful. My kids were beat.. they even slept in until 9 am this morning. Here is a few random pictures.. some from when a bunch of us girls went out to lunch with all of our kids (table of a million).. and then London looking stunning and trying to walk.

My current favorite things..

Okay here they go..
Pledge furniture polish.. best thing for my new furniture and table. Use it all the time.

Windex.. I have been harassed terribly for this one since I married Jake. I have a bottle of Windex in every room.. it is my cleaner for all things:)

Best toilet cleaner ever. Takes the hard water rim, right out of the toilet bowl!

I am a peanut butter queen... and this is the best peanut butter I have ever had.
