Day 22

Day 22 of the selfie project: 365 Days of Momma
Today was the Somersworth International Children’s Festival! We all had a fun day out in the sun… I don’t know about you, but hanging out in the sun all day exhausts me. That coupled with a measly 3 hours of sleep last night (thank you insomnia) has left me feeling wilted. Fenway is right there with me!

Day 8

Day 8 of the Selfie Challenge: 365 Days of Momma

This morning I once again skipped out on sleep, but it was for a very good reason. The hubs and I packed up Liam and the car to spend the morning and early afternoon at The College of The Holy Cross in Worcester, Massachusetts with his family for a ceremony honoring his grandfather. It was a HOT one out there today, and the ceremony was not in a shady area at all. I am happy we got to spend the time with his family, but we were equally as glad to enjoy 1.5 hours of air conditioning during the ride home!

The thumbs up is for the passed out baby in the back seat 🙂

Sadly that slight redness on my cheeks has now turned into a full on burn… I always remember to put sunblock on everyone but myself. Sigh* something else to work on.

Three Things Thursday, 5/22/14

Three Things Thursday is an exercise in gratitude that began over on Nerd In The Brain, another awesome blog.  Every Thursday I highlight three things from the week that I am grateful and/or made me happy.  It is a highlight of those little extra things in life that you don’t always have time to stop and enjoy.  A celebration of life’s gravy.  Feel free to steal this idea for yourself as well 🙂

 

My first thing this week is Lilacs

I love the smell of Lilacs.  It is the smell of spring here in New Hampshire (Fun Fact: They are also the state flower).  These pictures are from the trees in our yard and neighborhood (One of my elderly neighbors up the street has AMAZING gardens that I am seriously jealous of).

Next up is

Mornings on the deck with Liam and the puppy brothers.  Now that the weather is a little bit nicer we have been going out to play every day.  Liam and I check on and water the flowers, Leroy suns himself, and Fenway and The Bruise get some running time in with their balls (I totally consider throwing the balls to be my arm workout for the day).  Oh yeah, and I get to sip my coffee in the sun.  Life is good.

 

Last up is this awesome hat:

The first thing Liam saw when we came downstairs this morning Liam immediately noticed the hat on the dog and took it off so he could wear it at breakfast (after breakfast it was then discarded to the floor because it was time to play, it is a breakfast hat not a playing hat).
