Favorite Things

Happy Monday!  It's the first day of 4th grade today for Miss Emma.  I am just completely blown away by how fast time is going by.  It honestly seems like just yesterday she was going into Pre-K.  I'll do a complete re-cap of the first day of school tomorrow =)  But today I am linking up with Erika & Andrea for, Favorite things! =)


This week we're talking about our Favorite Summer Moment!  And what a perfect day for this, since yesterday was basically our last day of summer vacation.
I can't say I have one single favorite moment this summer...all of them were pretty amazing.  But seeing my girls happy, carefree and having fun was the best!  So today I'm sharing some our favorite summer days we had =)
We spent countless hours at the pool this summer, and we had so much fun!



I'm going to miss pool nights like crazy!  Not only did the girls have a blast at the pool, it also completely wore them both out before bed! haha =) 

One wish I do have, is that we would have gone to the ocean more, but we did go a couple of times and the girls had too much fun playing in the sand and sea =)



Camp.  Camp in the summer is sooo nice.  Relaxing and Fun at all at the same time.


We spent hours out on the water in the kayaks, digging in the sand, playing in the water, eating yummy food, campfires & s'mores.

Our summer was great.  One of the best summers we have had in a long time.  I'm honestly really sad to see Fall come.  Only because once Fall is here...that means winter is coming.

Thank you for a great season, Summer!!

Friday Favorites

Happy Friday, Friends!! 
Linking up with Andrea, Narci & Erika today for Friday Favorites =)




We just finished up school shopping for Emma!  Hallelujah!  She's officially ready to start 4th grade Monday.  And she is actually really excited about it =)  While we were out shopping I found this nightgown for Alyx...

I can't handle the cuteness of this!  She just loves it =)



This store.  I don't think I will ever bring Emma in there with me again.  We went yesterday, and she thought she needed every.single.thing.  Oh my gosh it was a nightmare!  Emma is all into makeup and nails right now.  And well, makeup from Ulta isn't always "cheap".  And she is at the age where she wants to use real makeup to play dress up with.  She picked out a makeup bag and a nailpolish.  That's as much as I would let her get. =)






I love love love to hear giggles coming from the backseat!  Yesterday while we were out running errands, Emma had Alyx laughing sooo hard =) 


Emma had a MUCH needed haircut yesterday!!  


It looks sooo much better and it's so much healthier now.  








I woke up this morning thinking, YAY it's Friday!!!  But then I remembered this.....


Yeah...story of my life ;)

And then I painted my nails before I left for work this morning....


The name of the nail color..."Thank GLOGG it's Friday" haha  Again...I work this weekend =)  

I hope you guys all have an excellent Friday and Weekend!! =)

Thoughts For Thursday

Good Morning friends!  I'm linking up again this week with Annie & Natalie with 
Thoughts for Thursday =)


Can I just say how I sooo wish Emma's school wore school uniforms.  We've been finishing up school shopping for her, and it's been stressful.  She has her own opinions now on what she likes and what she doesn't like.  It would be much easier if we just had to purchase uniforms =)  She has got some really cute clothes this year though!  

So I mentioned yesterday that I was going to try the wonton taco cups for dinner last night.  Well I did.  And they were a HUGE hit!!  Both my hubby and Emma absolutely loved them.  I put shredded lettuce, tomato, onions, black olives and sour cream out to add to them.  They were easy and I highly recommend them =)  I forgot to take a picture of them, but here is the recipe again if you are interested in trying them =)


We had to run to the grocery store yesterday to grab a few things, and one of the girls wasn't having it...can you guess which one??


She was over it.  Tired and ready for a nap.  We made it through the store without a huge meltdown which was good!!

We stopped at the mall yesterday to find a pair of sneakers for Emma for school.  While we were there I found a nightgown for Alyx that I could not pass up!!





Isn't it adorable!  The shawl part comes right off, and she loves it.  Disney princess in the making ;)

Yesterday was National Dog Day.


We have a pretty amazing dog =)  He's a rescue from North Carolina.  He only has a 1/2 tail, because they think another dog got into a fight with him and broke it off =(  They call him a Carolina Brown dog, only because we're not really sure what he is.  We got him when they believe he was about 7 months old.  But whatever he is, he's the most gentle amazing dog we could have ever asked for!! <3

This morning Emma and I made waffles together.  She loves to cook!  

 



Such a good cook! 

I hope you all have a fantastic Thursday!!  =)
