{Garden-fingers crossed!}

Yesterday was BUSY but productive and FUN!
Starting off with (2) cups of steamy coffee...
and the reality that is my living room! :) I had Chloe and Makayla so there was no need to tidy up. It was a day full of TOYS, GAMES, and lots of laughs. Better than a pristine house ANYDAY! :)
My morning breakfast view was pretty awesome, too!
Egg whites on whole wheat toast with a little cheese, then toasted to (almost burnt)...oops!

Seriously yummy tho!

We love eating outside on the deck and yesterday I found a PERFECT highchair to roll outside easily for Chloe for only $8 at Goodwill. SCORE :)

It's so gorgeous out this time of year!

PLAY TIME!!!
The cupcake game is one of our FAVS...

Lunch at Chick-fil-a with Molly,  followed by an afternoon at Lowes and working in the yard...
was the PERFECT way to wrap up the day. Chloe's in there somewhere, underneath the blackberry bushes, muscadine bushes, tomato plants, and flowers! I planted flowers from seeds for the first time too. They should bloom in T-minus 21 days.

{again...FINGERS CROSSED!}

Today we're planting the garden, starting with watermelon, cucumber, tomato, cantaloupe, squash, and spinach. I just hope SOMETHING will grow!

Time to find our gardening gloves ;)

See ya tomorrow!

Love,
Laura

{This sunshine makes me HAPPY!}

Absolutely NO EXCUSE not to get outside and take a walk...
So that's exactly what we did! :) Pony in hand and hat on head, we walked to Ingles to buy some fresh fruit for lunchtime.

On a side note, the Bojangles near my house closed! Super sad day! Those fries were about the only thing that soothed my sour stomach and preggo cravings about this time last year. Wonder what's going in it's place?

We stopped by Spinx for a fountain drink

and my new goal is to walk to the store for a diet soda if I really want one, instead of just having them in the fridge. That'll hopefuly cut down on how much I'm drinking AND I have to exercise to get it. Sounded like a pretty good idea to me ;)

So proud of myself when I come up with these novel ideas! Bahaha!

When we got home, Chloe had half a banana, sweet potatoes, and apples and I had a super delish smoked turkey, cucumber, hummus, spread on a whole wheat flat bread + a side of grapes. 

 Class was from 5:30-9:30, and after returning this GEM of a book back to the AU Library after using it in a presentation for Social Studies instruction, it was time to HIT THE HAY!
And on the menu this morning...
EGGS. Incredible, edible, eggs. :)

...and planting flowers for EARTH DAY!


See ya tomorrow!

Love,
Laura
