Last Thursday we attended an appreciation dinner for the volunteer work we’re involved in here in Memphis. These beauties came home with us from that dinner. We actually got some difficult news on this day so spending the evening being showered with love was a blessing.
I’ve discovered that I like cottage cheese. For the longest time I avoided it because the texture seemed really weird to me, but I finally tried it and… I actually like it! I’ve been eating it with strawberries and it has been the bomb dot com. Any other recommendations for good combinations with cottage cheese?
My sister, Holly, and I are constantly competing on Fitbit so even though we were out of town this weekend (and out of our normal routine), I couldn’t miss my work outs and let her win. 😉 Since we were staying at a hotel, I used their gym and it turned out that I had it all to myself! So I took my first ever gym selfie.
Speaking of staying a hotel… Oreo traveled with us this past weekend and he surprised us with how great he was all weekend. He hasn’t stayed in a hotel with us since 2011 (and he definitely had some serious separation anxiety back then every time we left him behind in the room) so we were a little unsure of how he’d do. But he was awesome! We were so proud of him!
Speaking of this past weekend, we were traveling because we were visiting Christopher’s family. I love the joy it brings my mother-in-law to see all six of us together.
Christopher and his parents and brother. I’ve talked about her a lot on this blog, but my mother-in-law really is incredible. In fact, go back to my post from September and read what I said about her then, it’s all still completely accurate.
Yesterday was our first official “school’s out, summer’s here” day with the kids that I nanny. During the school year I hardly get to see Will (who just completed 1st grade) so summer is an extra special time for us!
As you guys know, it’s a busy time of year for me with photography so there is lots of photo taking and editing happening right now. I know my blog posts lately have become snippets of many things instead of normal posts, but with work being so busy, something has to give a little. I may not be able to write as much as I want right now, but I can at least get these little tidbits out there to look back on later. 🙂 Thanks for hanging with me, friends.
