Friday Faves!

Friday, May 17, 2019

Alright y'all, it's my last Friday with my students!  I technically have all week next week but they only have through Wednesday.  I'm counting down the days until I'm home with Harrison all the time.

Last week was my first week back to school.  Let me tell y'all--it was an adjustment going back to work and having a baby.  But now I'm back to blogging some and I'm excited to share from FAVORITES!

I am so embarrassed to admit that it has taken me forever to get into watching The Crown.  I started right after season 1 came out (or when season 2 started??) and then it took me about 3 attempts to watch episodes 1 and 2 before finally pushing through.  I'm now on episode 10 of season 1, and I'll pick back up after school is out next week.

Okay, this should have been my number 1 FAVORITE!  I was in 3rd period last Wednesday when my phone started blowing up with everyone texting me about revealing the baby's name!  I LOVED it!  I am now forever connected to Meghan and Harry because of our babies 😜😂

 Mom life: super exhausted and hadn't washed my hair in almost a week.  I've shared this before, but this eye cream gets me though the day!

I also bought this tinted moisturizer to try this summer so I can look more put together without wearing makeup.

And now to leave you with cute Harrison pictures!

Happy weekend, y'all!

Simple Joys no. 2

Wednesday, May 15, 2019

Happy Wednesday!  I'm back today with my second installment of Simple Joys.  If you missed the first post, catch up here.

I loved reading everyone else's simple joys last time, so don't forget to leave yours in the comments!

-Soaking in a bathtub using this oil.  We have a huge soaking tub so I use maybe 10 drops, and I come out feeling so clean and smelling extremely calm 😜

-The smell of fresh cut grass when it finally starts to become warm outside.  It's like if hope had a smell it would be fresh cut grass because it means spring is coming.

-Getting new lipstick.  I'm currently looking at this lipstick online (shade syrup) and will look at it in person next time I'm at the mall.

-Quiet mornings

-When a song I like comes on the radio

What are some of your simple joys?

My First Mother's Day

Monday, May 13, 2019

 I celebrated my first Mother's Day yesterday with Harrison and Dustin.  Dustin got up with Harrison and let me sleep in, and both boys came to wake me up to open my presents before getting ready for church.  Yesterday was a day that I had been longing to celebrate for myself since 2015.

Yesterday was also a day of lots of emotions coexisting within me.  I was thrilled to finally be able to celebrate Mother's Day because being a mother to Harrison is really just a dream.  He's an amazing baby and I am so enamored with him.  But it wasn't without the selfless gift of another woman that made my day of celebration possible.  While I celebrated, she may have been experiencing sadness.

My heart goes out to the women who long to be mothers who had a difficult time yesterday going to church or scrolling through social media.  I've been there and I know how sad a day like yesterday can be.  If that's you, please email me because I would love to pray for you and encourage you.  I also recommend the book Longing for Motherhood.  It helped me tremendously processing my emotions.  

Now that I'm on the other side, I understand why we struggled with infertility because the Lord had us waiting on Harrison--who is the perfect addition to our family :)

 He's always looking at a ceiling fan.

Real life: I wanted pictures, but Harrison was hungry.  So we fed him first and the pictures followed haha!
