1: WHAT WE’RE EATING THIS WEEK:
A few weeks ago, we attended a reception for my niece’s first communion and my sister-in-laws mother made this recipe. Y’all… IT IS SO GOOD! We’ve made it several times now and now I’m the one sharing the recipe!
2. WHAT I’M REMINISCING ABOUT:
This popped up on my Facebook memories a few days ago and it’s giving me all the feels… This right here is why I decided to start blogging again! I have got to do a better job of recording my time with these kiddos!
3: WHAT I’M LOVING:
A girl I follow on instagram talked about these peel pads and while I was very skeptical at first, I now love them! Fair warning, there will be a period after you use them that you question yourself as to why in the world you thought it would be a good idea that you order an at home chemical peel. The first time I did it, my skin peeled BAD! But now it seems my skin handles it better and the peeling isn’t that bad. I feel like my skin is smoother and brighter and I highly recommend them!
4: WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:
We’ve just wrapped up the school year and we couldn’t be happier! We’re ready to take it easy and slow down for a bit!
5: WHAT I’M DREADING:
Did you happen to click on my Pinterest link? If so, you would have seen how my Pinterest account has been hijacked by my kids. Kelby now has her own Pinterest account and I’m considering allowing Kevyn to have her own as well so that I will no longer have random boards such as “Hollween”. Haha! It will be a process to reorganize everything but my Type A personality hates how unorganized it is!
6: WHAT I’M WORKING ON:
Would you believe me if I told you I’m working on a trip for NEXT summer? I’m a planner. It’s just how I’m wired. I come from a long line of planners. We can’t help it! As soon as we finalize some things, I’ll share details!
7: WHAT I’M EXCITED ABOUT:
August! We don’t have a date yet, but some time in August we officially get to make these sweet boys Cowens! This was the picture that I had saved on my countdown app on my phone counting down the days until they moved in with us full-time…
8: WHAT I’M WATCHING/READING:
Our favorite family show premiered last night! Anyone else an AGT fan?
9: WHAT I’M LISTENING TO:
Crime Junkie podcast… I’m addicted! Chances are if you’ve been around me any at all the past few weeks, I’ve probably mentioned this podcast and/or one of their “life rules.” Haha!
10: WHAT I’M WEARING:
Summers in Texas can be brutal. While I can’t get away with wearing minimal clothing to work (yikes!), I can get away with wearing minimal shoes to work! Give me all the sandals! I’ll be wearing these on repeat all summer long!
11: WHAT I’M DOING THIS WEEKEND:
I absolutely LOVE sitting outside on our back porch while Jeff is grilling and the kids are playing! It has become one of my very favorite things and it is typically limited to Sunday evenings during the school year, but now that summer is here, we like to grill and be outside most evenings! We have very little on the calendar for this weekend so I’m hoping there will be a lot of back porch sitting!
13: WHAT ELSE IS NEW:
I’m drawing a blank… I feel like I have nothing else new going that I haven’t already shared!
That’s a little bit of what’s going on with the Cowen crew!
