Monday Monday. Oh man, the weekend went by too quickly as usual. The kids and I went to the pool for a while yesterday and Saturday night Matthew and I got our first real date in a ridiculous amount of months. Possibly since December. Every time we had something planned either Matthew or Tagg would get sick. Not even kidding. We had two and a half amazing hours together to talk and eat cheese fries without interruption. Bliss.
My dress is by Kayce Hughes but I don't think it's available anymore. There are actually only a few days left to shop her site at all. If you're anywhere near Nashville you absolutely must stop by the store closing sale. It's bananas and your husband will be so pissed until he sees how many items you picked up for such a steal.
You know I love a good stripe so I rounded up a few of my favorites for your below.
We had an unexpected bit of slightly cooler weather last night and Matthew and I had the best time playing outside with the kids. Well, he had a fun time playing with them while I got to sit back and watch. It's been a bit of an adjustment this summer with the kids staying up so much later than they used to do. They've always kept a pretty strict 7:00pm bedtime and now they're raring to go until at least 8pm and it's more like 9pm before they're actually asleep. At least they're sleeping in until 8-8:30 in the morning so they're still getting enough sleep. Me on the other hand, I like to be in bed by 8:00pm so this is really cutting into my down time! Matthew and I might have to start staying up later which I'm not looking forward to doing!
On a sad note, my sister had to put her dog to sleep on Saturday. I can't even imagine how hard that was for her and the boys. She and her husband rescued Winston right after they got married and he's been there through countless moves and job changes and only somewhat begrudgingly transitioned into the role of big brother to two little boys who loved to chase him and sleep on him. Please think of her and the boys today it's been really rough on them all.
