Weekend wrap-up

Hope you had a fab weekend...ours was quite the eventful/fun one....boo again for Monday...

Friday... for some reason I come home from work very energized on Fridays...like ubber productive so me and miss Isabella got to making some more baby food...we are working on her feeding herself more table foods and sometimes she is a diva and puts her hands out like feed me...haha it cracks me up....

Exhibit A

Exhibit B

Just having some playtime....love this girl...she has started a new noise with her lips and she does it over and over and over...she had all the girls at book club laughing about it this week...

Then momma  headed out for a much needed, delish girl's night at Hattie's...I was in love with this bar...

Girl's nights....I think they are essential....

Saturday...we headed to Ft Worth to help Mamaw start packing up her house...she has the appraisal today and we are praying it all works out and she can build almost the identical home by Melissa and Joe and closer to us:)
Like I've said before the car is like hypnosis to sleep for this lil one

More finger food practice...she's becoming a pro!!

And of course we had to cool off in the pool...she was not a fan of the tube this day she preferred to be held...in her defense the water was preett-ty cold...

Then right after this my phone decided to take a quick plunge in the pool..I forgot I wrapped it up in her towel...eek...it shockingly survived thank goodness since my upgrade isn't until December...the home button no longer functions but I found a way to rig it this morning..yippee!
Auntie Hannah came with us to be an extra set of hands....and she captured these cute pictures of Isabella waking up from her nap!

Thanks to Marsha our wine rack is officially overly packed and loaded

We have a red side and a white side...

She finally mastered the cheerio into the mouth...we've had the good pincer grasp and to the mouth down for a while but letting go we finally mastered:) I think it was her "special" thumbs but she figured it out...
she sometimes just prefers to drop them on the ground for Dixie then giggles...

Sunday...we started our morning off with some Baby Einstein...have I told you how much I love our Sunday mornings....I know, I know, well, I love, love them...It is so fun to see how watching these shows evolve for her. Sunday mornings are really the only time we watch them but this time she was pointing and talking to the TV...be still my heart...I don't think there is anything more amazing than watching a child's brain and physical abilities develop...man our God is amazing...
Bellies out...

So intrigued

Oh and she loves Pottery Barn magazines...a girl after my own heart!!


Ready for church...gotta work on our girlie manners and keeping our skirt down;)

Giving her new doll kisses....I love, love how she gives kisses now!!

She thought feeding Dixie her cheerios was hilarious!!

She loves this sweet doll from her Mamaw

Sunday afternoon the hubs and I went on an organization frenzy: me in the house and him in the garage...we inherited some items from Marsha so we had some organizing to do...

Our extra pantry has been organized chaos...I call it that because it was a mess but I knew exactly where everything is....I throw all my leftover party stuff here so it can get a little crazy...it drives the hubs crazy so my goal was to get it somewhat organized

May not look tons, tons better but trust me it is SO much better...the hubs was hoping for some more room but I have a lot of stuff;) Don't know what we'll do when I have to free up another closet upstairs...eek...could be trouble!

I'll have to get some close ups because I'm prety proud of my organizational skills sometimes:) I use to love, love organizing growing up...ask my mom I would unload everything in the cabinets and reorganize...therapeutic for me I guess...I get it from my dad....in no way from my mom:)
I didn't take before/afters of my cabinets because, well, they were already pretty organized I just did some simple rearranging...I should never need to buy another serving dish again...and neither should you...borrow away...I have more mason jars/wine glasses/dishes than I know what to do with...


I plan to do a easy party planning post soon...these are my fave go to dishes...
if we ever move the house will have to have at least this many cabinets if not more!
Sorry for the poor lighting I used my half ruined iPhone...maybe I'll update with actual camera pics tonight...sometimes I don't realize how horrible they are until I make them bigger:)

And you  might spy some new white dishes...yipee....like I said before hubs if you don't think you will care what your dishes look like in a year don't be picky when you register...I let my hubs pick them out and I've never been a fan....food just looks so much better on white dishes...at least thats how I feel:)

This girl cracks me up...her attention span might be 0...this was our dinner last night...she was more entertained by her Gigi, Dixie and the TV

She just kept wanting to turn and say hi to her Gigi...

And another incredible dinner served by my husband...guacamole stuffed burgers...completely paleo if you ignore my heaping goat cheese smeared on top...I told you this girl isn't giving up cheese...

Happy Monday ya'll...praying for my sweet friend Jaimee today as she starts back to work and all my other teacher friends starting back today...we are blessed that you do what you do...I could not, I repeat could not...entertain 20 children all at one time....I learned this my first semester at Baylor.....(oh and praying for me and all my working friends...Mondays suck...)
