Loving all the fall things.

We've had a busy couple of fall days so I am spending today doing absolutely nothing and trying to meal prep as much as I can. It took me almost 8 years of being married to realize that if I spend all of Friday doing a l l  t h e  l a u n d r y and all of the cleaning then I can actually enjoy the weekend so much more. So here's to that!

On Friday we spent the day with our favorites hitting pumpkin patch #1.

It naturally started with an attempt of a kid picture.


But Hazel had other plans. Like always. 






It was such a beautiful day and the kids were so pooped, it gave me a double nap time that I had been praying for! Woohoo!

Saturday we got to celebrate this little cutie turning 4! 4! I seriously can't believe Baby Brody is 4. 


The weather could not have been nicer and even though Hazel was running on one short nap, the kids did great! 

Did anyone else snag an entire cold weather wardrobe for their kids during the Cat & Jack sale?!







On a funny note. If her face can fit in it... she will stick it right in haha!


See?



My love for goats gets stronger every year. Seriously I just want a tiny goat and pig and that will conclude my farm life that I so desperately need. And a horse. 






WHAT KIND OF BROWN EYED PEOPLE HAVE KIDS LIKE THIS?!






We somehow managed to count about 78 pumpkins when we go home, so I see a ton of painting and carving in our future! This weather has been so amazing, and even though its going to hit 80 a few times this week, I am soaking it all up as much as I can!

But this weekend?! A definite fall win.

One Last Summer Hoorah

We took our annual trip down to North Carolina and got back a week ago. Pretty sure it's taken me the entire week just to get back to "normal". I don't even know what normal is, but pretty sure were finally getting there. We left on a Sunday and the Friday before I was fortunate enough to get to go away for a girls weekend. I can't write this post without saying how much needed and grateful I am for the group of women I got to spend the weekend with. Man, if it just doesn't feel so good to laugh, drink and share stories that make you feel like you aren't really sucking ass at this whole motherhood thing.


We usually drive through the night so the the girls can sleep the entire way there, but being that Hazel has never slept away from home, we decided that getting somewhere new at 2am and having to put that child down would not go over so well :)

So I got back bright and early from girls weekend and we headed out a little before lunch time. The girls did so good on the drive down. We stopped to grab some lunch and let them stretch their legs and then we made it (all with a 30 minute Hazel nap) right at dinner time. It was perfect. 

The next morning? All we wanted was the pool :) I am so proud of this little fish this summer and how far she's come. Quinn and her cousin Sloane could have been in this pool all day, everyday.  





The beach however? Is where I could spend the rest of my days. Anthony doesn't understand my love for literally lying on the beach all day long. And I am happy to watch him in the water with the girls. 





This one. I don't want to say she was the best behaved this week....but she was the best behaved this week ha! We really, really got to enjoy her and her sweet personality and it was much needed in between Hazel tantrums and Quinn's sass. 













By far, my favorite picture of Anthony. 
































This was by far one of the best weeks we've had in NC. We got to spend some time with family we don't get to see a lot and it was awesome. With 4 kids in the house it was actually amazing. And I am missing that view everyday since!

But now it's October. So bring on the pumpkins and hot coffee and boots!
