spring break part two!

We all did a lot of this over spring break :) We did fun outings with the kids, went through phase 1 of liquidation in our home and had a VERY successful garage sale, played with lots of friends, ate a lot of food, another bday celebration for me with friends, late nights, sleeping in, had a girls night, double dates, read hunger games... had the best time. We even managed to get in our spring cleaning!
lots of snuggling in this house :)
Like I said, we slept A LOT!!!
And when I say we are liquidating, I mean it. (phase 2 is this summer). We went through EV-ER-Y-THING. Even through my hope chest when I found all of my jr high and high school cheer and gymnastic slicks and uniforms. So much fun haha... 
We usually make a zoo trip over summer, but we have smartened up a little bit and realized in Texas, prime zoo weather is spring or fall :) This was Luca's 2nd zoo visit, but he was only 6 months on his first so this was the first one he could enjoy!

 the elephant show...
 feeding the giraffes! My FAVORITE part of the zoo!!!

 on our last day, Ella and I had a girls day out. We went to see The Lorax in 3D. So much fun! Her face lit up when she put on the glasses and she said in the sweetest most mesmerized little voice, "so cool!'
Back to work now! We have a super summer planned :) cant wait!

spring break part one!

My birthday fell on the first weekend of spring break. What I wanted this year was my mom  to myself so we could cuddle up in the rain for a weekend pinterest craftathon :) It was SO much fun! We stayed in our pjs and it rained all weekend. perfection. We made...
 a christmas shirt for ella...
a thanksgiving shirt...
a t-shirt quilt with my old sorority shirts! This was my favorite project and definitely the most extensive! These are so expensive to have made and they were just occupying my drawer space, but I couldn't get rid of them! Each one holds such great memories! So now I get to keep them forever on a quilt :)
silouhettes for our bedroom...
 and last but not least...a newlittle decor for my kitchen!

 for our birthday gifts, mom got us matching ugg houseshoes!!! so cozy :)
 So after the weekend craftathon...Mike and I just enjoyed every single day with each other, the kids and friends. This was Monday, a beautiful day at the park topped off with our first Bahama Bucks icee of the season!

Ella's big girl room

Finally! I started on Ella's big girl bedroom before she was 2. She's 4 now and I just now have the bedding that completes her palace! I've been saving for forever now and ordering it piece by piece for 6 months as they have sales because it is not cheap!'s perfect and worth the saving because I've been looking for over 2 years now. Her bedding is one of the few things in her room I didn't make but that's ok b/c it's gotta hold up for a while. Like til she's 16 :) But now I need to repaint her walls. The decorating never ends! Good thing it's a hobby :)
