I took the kids mini-golfing on my own this week and I must have been muttering under my breath, “I wish I brought my new ring sling” because at the end of the game Morris said, “Mommy please bring your ring sling next time so you don’t keep talking about it” and rolled his eyes at me. 🙄😂 Soooo you can bet your bottom dollar I brought it on our bike ride/walk today! (Morris didn’t notice 🙄) Side note: it totally brightens up my typical grey/black ensemble!! @juniorfoxes

We always hoped we’d have a girl—and we got three!!!
20 weeks of our tiniest love and a long overdue date night... Saturdays are good.
Perfect 85 degree day for a splash pad. Anyone else been to the new splash pad at Platteriver State Park? The kids loved it!
Added a new plant baby! Around this time last year my living room had quite a few plants but with my black thumb, they did not last very long 🤦🏼♀️
So instead of trying to keep alive fussy plants I’m just going to stick to the ones that don’t need me for weeks at a time 🙌

I’m usually skeptical about anything that claims to be ‘all natural’ and work, but @naturally_white
proved me wrong. Thanks for having me today and taking care of my pearly whites! My teeth were 4 shades lighter within an hour ✨ If y’all are in Houston - they’re running a 30% off promotion this week, check them out! 🙌🏼 #YouDeserveToShine
I love love love this age and that he’s enjoying so many of the books that my mom read to me. We’re starting to get into chapter books too which is even better 🙌🏻📚
Beach days with the loves
Friends give, and don’t just take, from the relationship. A good relationship is a negotiated one. It’s based on give and take – and thinking of each other.
It’s been raining or sprinkling all day 🌦 but I still managed to get over to #Kenosha
to see some fun tribute bands with my mama. It runs tomorrow also if you want to check it out! (I just might make it back to #tributeisland
for more rocking and rolling! 🎧🎸See my stories for all the fun!)
Anyway, I’m dearly missing the warm CA life right about now, so I’m sporting my old @bubsballpark
tank (thanks @frenchtoastyyyy
How was your Saturday!!?

Am I the only person that rearranges as a way of cleaning? I have officially made our bedroom be 3 out of our 4 bedrooms and the smallest room is my favorite!
The diamond tapestry is actually a baby swaddle 😉 repurposing for the win!
So excited about the new ice cream place downtown! Hello, non-dairy and honey sweetened options! 😍
Headed to the beach for a week with my girl 🏝 What fun things have you done this summer? I’m so excited for the beach. Definitely my favorite place to vacation and you know I had to bring my @fawndesign
bag for the road trip ahead! Filled with lots of fun things for Braylie to do!
You are my sunshine, my only sunshine 🌞

How we all feel about an ice cream date after a Saturday dinner spent together as a family 😍🍦 #emmalynnmackenzie
She’s not climbing out of her crib (yet 😩) but she LOVES her big sister’s bed. Our entire before bedtime/nap time routine has to be on the bed now and no more sitting on mommy’s lap 😭. She’s honestly the most independent baby I’ve had and ALL four kids are pretty independent. Of course it has to be the last one that’s the most eager to do everything on her own.
⚽️..3 v 3 Tournament CHAMPs today... 💙⚽️ 2nd year in a row!!!!
Mama’s log- 22 hours without power:
Apparently while my oldest and I were having our movie date and dealing with the power outage last night, my three littles and my mom were having their own adventures. None of them including (especially?) my mom do well in storms. In fact, when I was growing up, my mom used to make us put our shoes on during severe weather in case we needed to get out of the house quickly. She made my kids do the same last night which perplexed them greatly. So as not to panic them, she told them she wanted them all to be ready in case she decided to take them to McDonald’s for ice cream. They were excited about this plan until they realized it was raining and storming too hard to leave the house.
When one round of storms ended, they saw a beautiful rainbow. They wanted to try to find the pot of gold and catch a leprechaun. My mom told them they could try when the storms were over but if they didn’t find anything, she’d take them to McDonald’s for ice cream.
Obviously they were unsuccessful finding the gold or the leprechaun but all’s well that ends well. Nana got everyone (including me) an ice cream sundae!
We’ve recently learned that our power won’t be restored until Monday...Lord help us! But in keeping with the positives, I’m thankful for hot fudge sundaes, my mom who took the kids back to her house since she has power, and for a legitimate excuse for not doing the laundry! 😜 ⛈ 🌈🍀🍨 Life happens when y’all!!! #lifehappenswhen #rainbowaftertherain #summerstorms #keepingitreal #thisisus #choosejoy #alwayssomethingtobethankfulfor #lookonthebrightsideoflife #nopowernoproblem #exceptitkindofis #momof4 #hotfudgesundae #uniteinmotherhood #embracethechaos #leanintothecrazy
Happy Saturday from this little grump 😄 Toddlers have so many moods and so many emotions, but somehow I find them all endearing (well, except the whining and the tantrums - those I could do without). I love Holden’s little grumpy faces and they usually turn to smiling or laughter within minutes (K maybe hours sometimes) 🧒🏼💕💙
One of the best pieces of marriage advice I’ve ever heard was that you should make sure you approach every problem You vs The Problem. If anything has kept us strong with all the crazy that military life throws at you, it’s been this. Crappy situations happen with the Army, he has to be gone A LOT, I’m “stuck” handling the kids solo, he misses out on things, I miss out on things. There is SO much opportunity for resentment, anger and frustration. I’d be lying if I said this advice kept me from ever having those feelings, but I will say it’s what helped me come back to a good place! It’s US vs the Army, US vs on call schedules, US vs long separation, US vs not enough money for Disneyland 😆 .
But I think we all agree that everyone can use all the help we can get, so let me have them! What’s the best relationship advice you’ve heard?
