documenting// Baby Girl got braces last week! This Mama is a little sad about hitting another milestone. I've found myself wishing a lot lately that time would just stand still. I took off to spend the day with her and make sure she had her requested "homemade mashed potatoes" for lunch. We chugged ibuprofen, cuddled, took naps, watched TV and I had the distinct pleasure of showing her how to use wax! Her sweet face is a little swollen in the second pic from all the tugging on her mouth, but I have to say that she looks so much older now with the braces. Her looks have really changed this summer. I swear she grew two inches while she was at camp a few weeks ago!
accomplishing// Not much this summer and that's the darn truth! I so wanted to clean out the upstairs these past few weeks, but Wayne keeps putting me off. Maybe I should just give him the ultimatum that it has to be cleaned out before Alabama football season starts and see how fast he moves then! Ahem!
enjoying// The long, lazy days of summer. It's been so nice not having a routine and letting Alise get in the kitchen most evenings to help prepare supper. There have been some days when the evening meal is nearly done when Wayne and I walk through the door. However, not so fast! Usually about this time - or at least near the end of July! - I'm over the heat and humidity and looking forward to Fall and football season!
reading// I totally loved The Identicals by Elin Hilderbrand. The perfect summer read! You can catch my updated summer reading list HERE.
spending// I went on a slight spending spree last week and splurged on some new summer pieces including this new embroidered dress from a local boutique. I just love it! I went in the shop looking for the beautiful embroidered blouses they featured on IG and walked out with a dress and shoes instead. But it's all good because I love wearing dresses in the summer. They are so versatile for church and work. I also bought a multi-colored straw purse at Target that I've had my eye on for a while and it goes great with this dress!
Happy Wednesday, y'all! I'm headed back to work today after a four day weekend, hoping and praying that it won't feel like a Monday at all and that Friday will be here ASAP! Enjoy your week!
