Backyard Babysitting

Today I got to watch Sara's baby boy, Max, while she went and saved some lives. He is such a good baby! I just loved keeping him and Addi definitely loved having him around! She's such a little momma and was good at feeding him melts.

We also had our playgroup over for a backyard playdate! I was SOOO glad that it was finally sunny and warm. It was just a perfect day and we had so much fun. I just love the group of girl's and kid's we have!

Such a fun day! I'm excited for tomorrow, one of my best friends, Janelle, is coming to hang out with me and Addi for awhile! So excited to see her and Hadley!!!

Hope y'all had a great day!

Fun Wednesday

Today was a great day! One of my best friends, Mia, came into town today for a little visit! I have to tell this story real quick, because Mia said some very sweet things to me today and I thought of this story after she left. So, some of you may know that two of my very best friends are Treece and Mia. We met in high school and have been besties ever since. We've been through ALOT of stuff and while we all live in different cities, and Treece lives in a different state, we are still best friends and probably always will be. Anyways, so in 9th grade I transfered to Harding Academy and I was having a hard time adjusting to the new school. Just typical stuff. I remember my Mom telling me she had been praying for God to send me a friend. A couple weeks later, Mia transfered to HA. My mom and her mom randomly met somewhere and Mia's mom told my mom that Mia needed friends too and she had been praying for her. Needless to say, when we met it was an instant connection! Mia and I hung out together SO much and it truly was God's hand that brought our friendship together. I'm so thankful for these two girl's and their friendship. I hope and pray that Addi finds life long friends like that one day too.

Kind of tearing up over here now. :) Anyways, so we went to Boulevard Bread for lunch. Neither of us had been there before and we wanted something sandwich-y for lunch. It was INCREDIBLE!!! Just very high quality ingredients and fresh food. So yum.

Mia got the Greek sampler plate. Looks so good!

I got smoked turkey on a baguette with avacado and provolone. Oh my word. Just so good.

This my friends, is a strawberry pan bread. The glaze on this is what will be flowing through the rivers of heaven.

Addi was just a dream through lunch. SO glad I could enjoy my sandwich in peace! Ha!

After lunch, we had to run to our car dealership to get the power charger fixed on my car. They had a little play area for kids that was very nice.

Then, we headed to TJ Maxx!!! I love that place!

Once Mia left, Addi and I headed to Church at Rock Creek to play with some friends!

I put this on Addi right before bedtime. My aunt sent her this tiara for Easter and she just loves it.

Such a busy but great day! Also, please keep those affected by the storms in your prayers. Part of Alabama got hit HARD today and watching video of the storm and seeing pictures is just unreal how bad it is. I am ready for these storms to be over with!

Hope y'all had a great day!!!

Storms and Schwarma

The last couple of days in Arkansas, we have had terrible and violent storms. Last night, we went under the house for the first time because there was literally a tornado a couple streets over. Terrifying! Luckily, we just had a few branches down and that was it. There were a couple of towns that weren't so lucky. Keep those people in your prayers because there are supposedly more storms headed down the same path. Here are a few pictures of the storm close to our house.

This one was taken on the 8th floor of Baptist Hospital. It was WAY too close to us.

This one was taken in the Kroger parking lot on Markham. Again, way too close.

On a brighter note, today we went to Jump Zone with our playgroup! We just love this place and our playgroup was the only ones there for most of the time!

These pictures crack me up. I had literally hauled Addi up there and Andrew and Britton ran up there like it was nothing and slid down with us. I was so out of breath!

We ate at Taco Bueno after lunch. It was wild being there with all those kids, especially one little girl named Addi who didn't want to sit down and eat.

We had to run an errand after lunch and I was debating going after Addi's nap, but it was supposed to start storming and I wanted to get it over with so we wouldn't have to go back out. Mistake!!! Addi was so exhausted she was past taking a nap. She would just cry and throw her cow. Oh it was a miserable afternoon! Ha! She was so cranky and fussy and I was counting down the minutes until bedtime! I'm glad that there haven't been any storms tonight so she can sleep!

For dinner, I made Chicken Schwarma. When I was pregnant with Addi, I left my job a month early so during that month, I watched ALOT of food network. This is one of those recipes that if I wasn't watching Guy Fieri make it, I probably wouldn't have tried it, but I'm glad I did! This is SO good! Here is the recipe. We like to eat it with naan and tzakiki sauce.

I am hoping and praying tonight is calm and tornado free!

Hope y'all had a great day!
