OK, it's a Southwest Flight. Whatever.
I'm off to Dallas tomorrow to see Caroline prior to the rest of the fam arriving for the newest Starnes bebe, slated to make an appearance between now and Wednesday. Brad and Lara are super excited. Us, too!
We're now doing double braids. Lainey's bangs are longer, but not long enough not to drive me completely insane. I'm trying to incorporate more of them in whatever fashion I use to tie her hair back. The braids are slightly effective. And, she looks pretty darn cute, too.
Carter looks like he needs some new shoes, huh? He has plenty of other pairs. But, prefers these. They smell as good as they look, I assure you.
We've been bike riding fools since the weather has been so lovely. Jack is enjoying Carter's hand-me-down first bike. And, his helmet. We have a "if it has wheels, you wear a helmet" rule. Cuts out discussions on which vehicles are safe and which are not. I take lots of measures to avoid arguing with a 2 and 3 year old.
Laine is loving Jack's hand-me-down helmet and the monster trike that both boys used prior to her.
And, ready to go!
We came in from school recently to settle down before nap time. Lainey refused to sit with Jack and me to read books and opted to lay on the floor instead. She ended up falling asleep under the dining room table. Sweet punkin.
And, speaking of school, we visited Jack's classroom earlier this week. Our precious Jack is starting Preschool this fall at the church. Seeing the setting and meeting teachers made him even more excited. Me? I could bawl crying at the thought of it.
I used Tatertots and Jello's burlap wreath tutorial to make the following for my sister, Caroline's, birthday next week. I made some adjustments......some intentional and some because I really didn't know what I was doing.
First, my burlap is a wider grain. I also have scissors that barely cut paper, so I didn't make circles everywhere as she did or I would have checked myself into the closest loony bin before this project ended. I chose some more embellished brads as well. Know what's funny? I didn't even know what a "brad" was prior to today.
I love it. I hope she does, too.
I mean, seriously. Martha who?
I'll peak in on blogland from time to time while I'm gone. Caroline and I have big plans to read, cook and watch a lot of Real Housewives. Ryan loves it when we do that.
Yall say some prayers for the best-husband-ever, Mr. Blake Starnes. Not only does he have the troops sans-wife starting tomorrow afternoon, he's driving those lunatics from Kansas City to Dallas. I know. I did well when I married that man.
