Six on Saturday

I hope this Saturday evening finds you cozy somewhere curled up on a couch reflecting on sweet things from the weekend.  That's what this girl is doing:)  
April has been one stormy, dreary, rainy month around here...  
It's a little hard for that not to let it drag you down in spirits every now + then.  
But after the rain, there always seems to be that beautiful sunny day. 
This reminds me of my Cam.

As we go to sleep each night, he never forgets to ask...
"Mom, will you stay til' it's sunny?" 
Even in the rain, in the dark, we know the sun is coming.  
Those we love, + whom love us, never leave. 
No matter the weather, no matter the time, no matter the conditions.  
We stay + commit til' it's sunny 😘
+ yes, our lawn care did not show up Friday...<so embarrasing>

one.  easter
We had a wonderful easter weekend + just like every other holiday, it's over in the blink of an eye.  We spent most the hot days before on the playground, but we did attempt to watch Peter Cottontail + try to go to a storybook reading at Barnes & Noble (which we missed).  Instead we read books about sharks + played with the train table for, oh, approximately four hours😛
We got up e a r l y Sunday morning & Cam immediately ask that we go check to see if the Easter Bunny had came for a visit.  We opened the bedroom doors + he spotted two baskets sitting on the bench.  Even at 5 am he was bubbling with excitement:)
E s p e c i a l l y when he seen that remote control alligator.
And even Conley was impressed when he spotted his Elmo + shark peeking through the paper shreds of his basket.  Ok.  Maybe it was just the Arrow Root Cookies...
They admired + gathered their little easter treasures + we packed them into the car in their pjs!  
We slipped into our church clothes + made it to Sunday school to learn the true meaning of easter.  We had a wonderful service + then went to the top of a mountain for a picnic + egg hunt.  The genius that I am, I decided to wear shorts + a t-shirt, which lead me to freeze. to. death.  The boys didn't seem to care:)  As long as they are running + playing outdoors, they wouldn't care if it was a blizzard outside!  

we sure missed daddy.

two.  back to work
We are on a downward swing to summer.  And why does that mean for school employees?  
All the post it "to do" notes!

three.  summer loving
Remember when I was whining about people jumping into Spring when the first days of Winter had barely been welcomed in?  Well, here I am jumping into Summer!  I've definitely got my eyes peeled for cheap summery pieces to liven up the house...
First up?  The coffee bar:)  Target dollar bin is on POINT.

four.  new house projects
there is something about the warm weather...well, no.  I guess just the fact that I have air in my lungs that gets me in the mood for home projects.  Pinterest + my instagram feed are feeding my home decor itch.  I think the first up on the DIY list is this framed ship lap board.  I want to do this as the background for a type of eclectic gallery wall display type thingy on the huge blank wall in the living room.
The tutorial I found looks like it would be inexpensive + fairly simple.  
(As they a l w a y s do...laughing...)
Prob should wait on he hubs for this one.
Find tutorial here.

five.  new hair
These days I am lucky to get to the salon once every 4-5 months.  My poor scarecrow hair was past the point of going.  Thankful for a little refresher.
Of course, it was pouring cats + dogs when I left, so as you can imagine,
 that lasted all of 3 minutes.  Bye pretty hair...
Also.  Sidenote:
Anybody else sit in disbelief at beauty shop chatter? 😂
People watching at it's finest.

six.  bible study
Thursday night we dove into our new study! 
 We ended up choosing "A woman that never quits."  The topic didn't speak to me as something I felt I could relate to initially, but after our little get together, I found that in every aspect of my life, it will + does have potential to help me grow in Christ just as I had hoped.  
I literally still have chills thinking about how God has fit each girl in our group together like a puzzle.   The more we talked, the more God revealed to me why we were all in the same place.  Though we are still practically strangers, I believe we all have similar backgrounds + experiences + God plans to help us help one another.  So excited to see what happens through this sweet group of girls he has blessed me in being a part of...

I think it's great that you have a group of women getting together to study God's word. A few summers ago a group of us ladies would gather together once a week over the summer and I loved it! Of course moms and their kids schedules sort of broke it up but I feel like us moms NEED that, or at least I do. Your kids Easter outfits are so cute!!

I am loving it! Our topic being "a woman that doesn't quit" has made us determined we will NOT quit this! Lol:) Thank you, Amie!
