six on saturday

I cleaned & cleaned & CLEANED yesterday.  And have n o t h i n g to show for it except a start to organizing the boy's toys (which I hope to share this coming week!).  My mom & dad's house is massive & I am overwhelmed to say the least.  
I'm getting more & more ready for a nest of my own again.  It's been a year exactly since I moved in with my mom & dad after coming back from North Dakota to be on bed rest.  
HOW has that been a year???  
While we are working on the nest thing, I can't help but scratch the feeling that an extra pair of hands to help keep it clean is going to have to ease it's way into being a top priority in our budget.    
I don't really know why I shared all that.  I guess just to share my excuse as to why I didn't post yesterday?:)  
ANYway.  Here a six things I loved about this week:

No cavities & a great dental check-up for my 3 year old.  The staff, as every other person on the planet, swore he was 4 or 5 years old and then, while in the chair, he and the hygienist had a little conversation that went a little something like this...
"Alright Mr. Cam, I'm going to count your teeth now."
Cam: "Akkkkkk-ward." 
(awkward:the word he uses every other breath because it makes people laugh) 
Everyone in the office lost it.
Fall.  Autumn.  Halloween.  It's in the air!  
Well, I guess it's still 90 degrees outside so maybe not the air, but it's in the stores.  And I am soooooo excited.  I ordered the boys matching Halloween tees this week & grabbed a few things for Conley's first birthday party at Home Goods.  I also grabbed a pack of Halloween Oreos while grocery shopping, because, it is the best junk food of all time.  I'm telling you.  If you get in the Fall mood, just go out & browse the stores!  You will be in the spirit in NO time:)

I f i n a l l y got the opportunity to go through the boys clothes this past weekend & I made 90 bucks at once upon a child!  Such a great way to give us a kick start for their fall clothes.  See what a great helper I had? Can you sense my sarcasm?:)
As of this week, my Conley is in the double digit months & my Cam is one month a way from hitting the 3 and a half year mark, y'all.  I don't know how I feel about this...
More on this to come later.

Coconut Milk Mocha Macchiato Iced Coffee.  Don't walk, run to Starbucks.
Meanwhile, I'll be over here trying to figure out a recipe for how to make it at home;)

Speaking of our own nest again...I'm just going to leave this little teaser here.  

My Mr. is going to caution me on getting excited until we have the keys in our hands (rightfully so with our recent experiences)... Yet, we got some exciting news this week-(more exciting then we have in the past at this point in the game) so I wanted to share a little sneak peek of what might be in the near future.

No matter what ends up happening, I am so looking forward to sharing our whole house buying experience one day-it's been a doozy:)
I think (& I say this with my clenched teeth face because you just never know) that things are falling into place for me & my little family.  Regardless, I can always say that God is good & he gives us what we need & allows everything to happen for a reason.  So thankful & cherishing every moment of this life.  
I hope you all have a great weekend!
