Oh to be this comfy. 


Proof they can be really sweet. 

Sophia knew Katie was getting shots this morning so showed up with this. Awwwww.


There. NOW it’s my laptop.


The places this dog sleeps. 


Work It Wednesday Challenge Winner!

One of my uplines had a Work It Wednesday Challenge awhile back and I won! I had the most accumulated points for things like contacting new people, wearing stripes, and making a sale. I just got the prizes today!


The first true fall morning!

Jean jacket, jeans, and boots!


Crazy cat in a bag

This was a big Marshalls bag that I was actively putting returns in. 

I moved her and gave her a new bag and she was happy. 


Quick shot of us girls before school


Jelly Belly Factory Tour

We surprised the kids with a mini road trip to the Jelly Belly factory which is right up the road…And also surprised them with who was also there!

Getting ready for a train ride around the factory floor. It’s really just a warehouse.

Since it is a working factory we had to wear hats—they are very cheap plus I have a big head so it didn’t last long…but I had to keep it on. :lol:


We were able to try whatever flavors we wanted. I tried margarita and pancakes and maple syrup. They were both tasty. 

We spent about $50 on stupid jelly beans but we had fun. And I can honestly say I don’t need to buy Jelly Belly fudge again (it’s in the freezer so others can try it). :)

Messy sleeper

They get such a kick out of using chalk on the tires. 


A game of Tic-Tac-Toe waitin’ for lunch. 


Sometimes a girl has to fluff her hair.

Oh no, I’m not all business all the time. Sometimes a girl has gotta fluff her hair before a selfie (my phone happened to be on the camera setting on the floor and I loved how crazy my hair looked). 


It’s amazing what an app can do. 

Left pic: zero makeup
Right pic: a few clicks of the app

That’s my goal of how I want my makeup to look!! 😂


This iOS app is called AirBrush.

Daddy’s turn at shooting!


Katie’s princess hair!

Our friend Heidi (our neighbor’s nanny) watched the kids while we were at the concert and I came in to see this amazing hairdo! I asked how she could possibly manage with Katie’s super fine hair (I’ve tried and failed) and she reminded me she had two girls. :)


Steve Martin and Martin Short!

Date afternoon seeing Steve Martin and Martin Short courtesy of the USO! It was a free event and I wanted to be sure to get in so I was there three hours early (LOL!)—though Tom and I went out to eat and then it was such a gorgeous day I walked around Pokémoning. Then about 800 young navy recruits showed up that were going to be allowed in first so there was ZERO point in me being there early. (As it turned out there was plenty of seating but we didn’t know that until 15 minutes before the door opened.) I’m glad we went—it was a good time!


A full SeneGence face!


Their first official eye exam!

Illinois is weird and requires kids to have full dental and vision exams… Both kids checked out fine with 20/20 eyesight though each had a tiny bit of astigmatism that wasn’t worrying. 


It was misting so of course they needed an umbrella.
