Hello Monday: What’s To Come

Joining the fabulous Lisa Leonard for another Hello Monday series.
You should play along.


Hello Monday.
Hello to another week of adventures,
and errands, and tantrums, and cuddle sessions, and time well spent with good friends.
Hello to a sneak peeks of fun posts coming soon to LMM.

Hello to the casual look I seem to be wearing everyday so far this Spring.
For those who asked, these jeans are from American Eagle, found here.
They’re cropped, so they fit a shortie like me.

Hello to my inspiring and ultra comfy sweatshirt from The Printed Palette.
I’m a sweatshirt and jeans kinda girl.
So you’ll see me attempting to sport this look as far into Summer as humanly possible before becoming a walking sweatbox.
I may have worn it 3 times last week. But whose counting?

Hello to my daytime partner in crime.
And hello to soaking up every ounce of alone time that I have with him.
He’s losing his newborn baby smell you guys…
It’s a bit heartbreaking.

Hello to an evening alone at my Happy Place.
Hello to picking books off the shelves, opening them up and pulling them close so I could breath in their new book smell.
“New book” smell is for me what “new car” smell is for Ben.
Hello to sitting alone in silence.
With no words, except the ones that left my fingertips.

Hello to my latest obsession, bordering on an addiction.
We’re making some healthy changes around these parts and I can’t wait to share more details on that with you soon.

Hello to an entire week of juicing for breakfast.
Ben wanted me to ask you to guess which breakfast was his in the picture below:


Hello to a sneak peek of the unforgettable day I spent at Elevate.
Such a wonderful group of authentic, creative, talented and inspiring ladies.
This is our silly face picture.


Hello to my favorite new “arm party” ensemble.
The letter “A” bracelet is c/o: Bip & Bop

Hello to a project I just learned about and it immediately spoke to my soul.
I’m thinking that together, we can do this. So let’s.
Details to come.


Hello to my Mother’s Day miracle…
Our Wesley, sitting still with his hands folded oh-so-reverently for Church.
And not to worry, Sawyer is getting his hair cut this week.

Hello to Wesley’s VERY first trip onto the stage to sing with his Sunday school class.
He stayed up there for the entire song, like the brave little boy he is.
This momma was proud.

Hello to the Mother’s Day quote that was given to me by the youth of your Church.
It made me tear up, but no surprise there.

Hello to a a new week.
A week where I plan to practice taking deep breaths,
balancing my time,
not sweating the small stuff,
and perhaps even doing some laundry.

What are you saying hello to this week?

    Saying hello to some more baby weight coming off! And also a reluctant hello to Florida weather heating up, and a big huge HELLO HOW YA DOIN to pulling my older boys out of school to go to Disneyworld because with all the time I’m giving Cash lately, I need some bonding time with them, because it all goes so fast.

    LOVE everything about this post! I wrote a Hello post as well. I’m saying hello to hanging out with my littles and being outside as much as we can. Oh and to working on new recipes! I love your outfits and your little ones are always to DIE for! It is so great to see how much Wesley has grown and how adorable little Sawyer is… I remember reading your blog when Wesley was tiny ;)!

    So funny, at first glance I thought that was stripper pole in the second picture! It’s actually the closet door frame (right?) 🙂

    Hello there! It was so great to meet you on Saturday. I know as bloggers we try and are usually saying to be authentic and ourselves, but it really makes my day when I meet a blogger that I’ve been following FOREVER and she is truly as she seems on her blog. Thanks for being you! xoxo

    Off topic question. I’m guessing Sawyer’s high chair is from Ikea. I’m having a baby in a few months and was thinking about getting one. Do you have any problems with the white tray getting stained?

    Your boys are so cute! I love that sweater too!

    Was Ben’s choice the one with bacon? If I had those two boys, as cute as they are, I wouldn’t get anything done because I would be on the floor playing all day. God Bless

    I think Ben’s was the one without the bacon. The straw has you written all over it LMM!

    your jeans and sweatshirt outfit is exactly the kind of outfit i’d wear. and i do wear. except with an 18 week baby bump, the sweatshirts are starting to look a little overly frumpy/too tight (depending on which one) to fit over my belly. so that’s awkward. but i still LOVE the outfit! super cute.

    I have read this submit and if I could I wish to recommend you some interesting issues
    or tips. Maybe you can write subsequent articles
