Life Lately

Life lately has been full of ice cream, shopping, having fun, celebrating birthdays, and taking A LOT of selfies.  These pictures are from the last few weeks and we have been working in some fun days while dealing with some unfortunate days with our house (the flood and an entire day without electricity after the snow storm).

 We went to I-HOP for dinner on National Pancake Day and the line was out the door.
So we drove to Moe's because kids eat free on Tuesday (and it was a Tuesday). :)

 Caroline and I could eat at Moe's everyday.
Elizabeth tolerates it on occasion (she's not a Tex Mex girl).

 I made our bed one morning and Caroline promptly put her pillow and blanket on it and crawled on top of all our decorative pillows.

She then requested Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.
Love this cute girl!

 March 9th is my brother's birthday and he requested a group Skype for his birthday.
I surprised him and Ben and I had birthday hats and noise makers.
Happy Birthday Andy!

 The next morning the girls had fun playing with our leftover party supplies :)

 At Caden's birthday party a few weeks ago, Liz took this picture of me with Caroline.
Doesn't she looked thrilled?
I just laugh and laugh every time I see it. :)

 Elizabeth was more than happy to take a picture with me :)


 Maybe she just wanted to eat?

 Our snow day was also Pi Day and Elizabeth made a delicious s'more pie

 And Ben made homemade cheese pizza

 Pie is ready!

 We lost power all day the day after our snow day.
A car ran into two power poles and knocked them both over across a four-lane-road.
We were out of power for 12 hours, so we were out of the house most of the day 
(because it was about 20 degrees outside)

 We went to Chick-Fil-A for lunch and the girls wanted to trade in their toys for ice cream

 After lunch we went to the mall.
This is inside the Loft fitting room.
I was trying on clothes and apparently they were taking A TON of pictures :)

 See my arm?  I had no idea.
See Caroline posing?  I had no idea.

 Selfie time.

 Ben gave me this book for Valentine's Day.
I loved every single word.
If you like Gilmore Girls, you must read this book :)

 We shopped and played at an outlet mall yesterday

 And got more ice cream :)

 They were so good all day that I let them pick one ride to ride on after all our shopping

And... that's life lately!

Happy Thursday y'all!


  1. You had me at s'more pie! Looks like a fun week. Do you have a recipe for the pie?

    1. I got it from Mix and Match Mama. It was yummy! :)
