When do kids start getting along? Ever?! Atticus is 5 and Bonus is 4. I love how close they are in age and I have hope that one day they will be best friends forever. It seems like today has been nonstop with them. They are constantly fighting over something.  If Atticus has a toy, Bonus wants it. If Bonus is watching a movie, Atticus wants to watch something else. It goes on and on. How do you make it stop??

Besides the constant bickering, I got a lot of stuff done today. I did a lot around the house, made a great lunch, and helped my mom-in-law rearrange her living room. I didn’t get a chance to do my crafting, but I have all day tomorrow to work on it. 

The boys are sleeping in the living room again. They love sleeping on that air mattress. I can hear them watching Funniest Pets and People and they are cracking up. It’s so sweet to hear them giggling together. I’d rather hear giggling then fighting any day! image

Even though they test my patience almost everyday, I still love these little cuties more than ever. I can’t imagine what my life would be like without them in it.

While I was over helping the mother-in-law, I snagged a few movies we hadn’t seen yet. I’m off to take a shower and pop some popcorn for a movie night with the hubs.

Tomorrow we are leaving for a 5 day vacation. We are heading to the beautiful Eureka Springs to stay with some of our best friends.

Have you ever been? It’s an amazing place.


This is downtown Eureka. It’s breath taking. (I stole this picture from google images)

I haven’t packed anything yet. I am procrastinating. It’ll get done tomorrow.

My main focus is getting my 8 hours of sleep. I am exhausted.

I will make sure to take lots of pictures to share while we are gone.

If you don’t know what Eureka Springs is….you should google it. It’s full of history.

Have a great hump day.

Today was such a beautiful day. It was the first day it actually felt like Spring. I know we still have 4 more days, but I am so ready!! It was nice letting the kids run around outside with NO jacket, Jeremy worked out in the yard, and we ran some errands. Sadly I will say I was stuck inside for most of the day…working on projects and cleaning house. I still enjoyed the sunshine through the windows and the peace and quiet. With spring coming up, that means a couple of things for us…one of those being guests. We live in a tourist town (which is amazing) and get lots of visitors spring through fall. This weekend…one of my best friends, her kids, and her fiancé. I am so excited to hang out with them tomorrow. The St. Paddys Day parade is at 2…can’t miss that!! The weather is supposed to be nice again and I’m sure the boys (my 2 and her 2) will love playing outside together. Next weekend my mom will be here and Easter weekend we are leaving to go on vacation. I am really looking forward to all the guests we will have in the next few months, but I also know we will be very busy.

I will take pictures tomorrow and try to get them up here for all of you to see. Sorry for the short post. It’s late…I have to get up early…I need some sleep.


Quick picture of my friend Morgan…who is in town for the weekend. We have lots of shopping and girl talk to do. 😉

Have a great weekend and I hope your weather is as nice as mine. 4 days until spring!!
