Spring Breakers

I will take any excuse to go on a little getaway with my boys. It was spring break, and Ted definitely deserved a relaxing time off. It just so happened that Bren and Ash were feeling the exact same way, and needed a break too. We were so happy they did, because we all loaded up the car and ventured down to St. George. 

I had major anxiety about how our little Lukey would do on our little mini road trip, but he was such a champ! We told Bren and Ash that they would either go home ready to have a baby of their own, or Lucas would be excellent birth control.. He was on his best behavior, and was definitely the entertainment for the trip, so we're hoping he'll be getting another cousin here soon ;) jk, jk.. But really. 

We had the greatest time drinking LOTS of Orange Peels, shopping, hiking, golfing (for the boys, while the girls played in the sun), sleeping, laughing, and tennis playing. I can't think of a better way to celebrate no school, or anyone else we would have rather enjoyed it with. Spring Break 2014 was a definite success. We are more ready than ever for summer to get here! And let me tell you, "Summer Lukey" might be my favorite Lukey yet.. That boy loves the sun. And chunky baby legs hanging out of shorts with bare feet could be the greatest sight ever.

The Liebster Award

You may be wondering what in the world the Liebster Award is, I sure didn't know. It is an "award" given by bloggers to bloggers. It is simply a way to get to know a little bit more about the girl behind the blog, and share some of your favorite blogs so we can all creep together!  :)

I was nominated by my cute friend Michelle that I have known since.. forever pretty much. {Long live ParCool!} 

Here we go, a few things about me >> >> 

I love the tv show "Friends". When I started dating my husband, he quoted it once and I knew I would be hanging on to him for the long haul. (He even owned some of the seasons.. Match made in Heaven I tell ya). I watched nearly all 10 season the first few months when Lucas was born. Pretty sure our little guy knew that it was time to eat when he heard "I'll be there for you!" It made nursing fly by :)

One of my favorite movies is "Tangled". My husband knows if it has been a rough day because I will be watching it in our room. 

I am the absolute worst decision maker out there.. If I can procrastinate any decision making, you can be sure that I will.

I'm also a worrier, so that makes it even harder to make decisions.. 

One of my most prized possessions is a Tiffany bow necklace Teddy gave me when Lucas was born. It makes me happy every time I wear it.

I love Gushers. So so much.

I am a list maker and journal keeper

Rainy days are my favorite kind of days

I cry. A lot. I thought after my pregnancy the hormones would go away, but they just magnified... Sometimes for good things, sometimes for bad. Especially things involving my family, it just gets to me! Poor Fancy Face, he is really good at taking care of me and the rollercoaster I am always on.

If I could live in leggings, I would. In a heartbeat. The amount of time it takes me to get out of normal clothes and into sweats when I get home is embarrassing.

I love handwriting. I love seeing other peoples' writing, I love writing in my journal, I love writing notes, and I am working on learning calligraphy.. I'm a big fan of it all.

I really enjoy watching sports, and I kind of know a lot about them. I guess that's what I get for growing up with 4 brothers.

I have mastered the art of "lollygagging". Just ask Teddy...

My favorite things about myself are my boys. Watching them play fills up my little mommy heart.

Now I nominate...
