April has been an exciting month and the weather has been so enjoyable. Everything is green and growing and we are as busy as ever but trying to soak it up. Today I’m joining Holly, Katy as we host the Royally Waiting linkup and we would love for you to link up and help us bloom as well! Since we are all about blooming and sharing the love, I am also joining Shay, Mel & Sheaffer for What’s Up Wednesday and Jessi and Jenn for What’s Hap-“Pinning” Wednesday.
What we are Eating
Still trying to work on clean eating! This has pretty much been my breakfast, lunch and snack choice for the past few weeks in some form or fashion. I really do best when I have something delicious but also tasty. Our dinners have looked like this!
Beef & Chicken Fajitas
Spaghetti Sauce with Zoodles
During my favorite time of the month (insert sarcasm) when my sweet tooth has been stronger I’ve been having one of my favorite snacks. A few sliced strawberries, slivered almonds and a sprinkle of shredded coconut.
Seven years ago I took my mom along with me as I traveled to Nashville on business and we had so much fun! My mom is like the biggest country music fan and this earned me major brownie points. All our memories have been popping up on Timehop and I can’t believe I have not been back since. Nashville is so much fun!
We finally updated our landscaping and I have been so happy pulling into the drive each day! I wish these pictures could really do the job justice but just imagine it looks even more amazing in person.
What we’ve been up to
I shared our exciting news and a long weekend in Corpus Christi on Friday!
Nothing at all!
Choosing paint colors! This really doesn’t seem like it should be rocket science but so far every shade of grey I’ve slapped on the walls just isn’t working. I chose a blue green for one bathroom and it wasn’t speaking to me either. My house is pretty much a hodgepodge of paint colors at the moment but I’m determined to get it right as I plan for this to be a one and done for the next 10 years!
The possibility of wallpapering our entry way! The only wall left in our house with wallpaper is the long wall in our entryway. My plan has always been to strip and paint but after seeing Astleigh using so many fun wallpapers lately I decided to give it a shot. I ordered 3 samples which were currently 50% off so I figured it was worth a shot at .49 each! I’m considering something fun in my laundry room too. We shall see if I can find something the hubs and I can agree on before I chicken out!
Yesterday I shared my April review of the most recent 4 books I’ve finished and now I’m looking for a new batch for May! Can’t wait to drill through the other posts today to see what I need to add to my list.
Still loving the lavender jeans I received in my spring stitch fix and pastels are definitely not my norm. Dillon’s school colors are purple so I was able to sport them for some Cougar pride! Layers have been my friend lately as I continue to work on losing a few more pounds and this kimono is perfect as it heats up.
More floral, I’m seeing a pattern here! Old Navy has been killing it and this dress is one of my favorites.
Doing This Weekend
I am actually making a quick trip to Big D to attend the Young Men’s Service League National Conference. Serving along side Dillon has been so much fun this past year and I’m excited to learn more about this organization as we are only in the second year for our chapter.
Looking Forward to Next Month
May is always a busy month with so many fun activities! We will have a field trip with Carly and also watch her dance in the spring recital. Dillon will continue playing 7 on 7 baseball and we will catch some of Riley’s games live.
What Else is New
Our new couch finally arrived! Now on to the waiting for the perfect rug and some fun pillows. These chairs came from my Mamaw’s house and I’m hoping to decide on new fabric or leaving as is soon as well. So excited to finally have a new couch!
Bonus: Favorite Summer Shoe
So I already shared last week as part of the Target Finds but these thong sandals have definitely been my favorite new pair of summer shoes! These shoes are so comfy and for under $16 the price per wear is a win. These gladiator sandals from Target are very similar to a pair I purchased last year and they are still in such great shape. I’m considering ordering this pair as they are similar to a much more expensive pair I’ve had my eye on for the past two seasons.
