Hello Monday {Life Lately}

Hello Monday and Hello Friends! I am so sorry for my radio silence last week. I missed you guys! I am still trying to play blog catch up so bear with me. We got home from Mexico late last Tuesday night and it was a whirlwind of a week after that! Today I am going to share a little bit of life lately since arriving back to reality! Grab our graphic and link up below! Remember anything goes...




Ben and I had an absolute BEST time in Mexico. I will share more about it tomorrow so make sure you come back for that excitement. 


Thursday morning, I went to my weekly weight watchers meeting and guess what....6 days in Mexico! I gained 1 pound:( But I'm ok with that because we had FUN in Mexico! I guess I was a little crazy setting this month's weight loss goal at 8 pounds. 



Last Thursday, I attended my first vendor event and y'all it was SO MUCH FUN! My sweet friend, Juli, invited me to be a vendor at "Enjoying the Holidays". So all day Wednesday and most of Thursday, I spent getting ready for the event. Here is my table set up! 



Juli and Meredith....2 of the sweetest souls you will ever meet! 



Friday, Ella's school honored our Veteran's.....



Ella's great uncle, Richard, was able to attend. We are so thankful for this Veteran, along with all the service men and women that have served or who are currently serving. 


Friday afternoon, I deep cleaned my craft room after the mess of getting ready for my first vendor event. It is all cleaned and organized to start the craziness of the Christmas season. #makerlife. 


But don't worry, I watched cheesy Christmas movies while I cleaned. Ben drove to Valdosta for the night to play in an alumni golf tournament Saturday morning.   


Saturday morning, I cleaned out my closet while Ella cleaned out hers and together we got rid of 4.5 big trash bags full of stuff. Later that afternoon, we threw on our comfy clothes to watch our Bulldawgs against Auburn at The Smith's house. As we all know the outcome was not ideal. But we still love our beloved DAWGS!! 


Conyer has been wanting a puppy so bad, well he FINALLY got one last Sunday. Meet Zeke, the adorable yellow lab! I can't even handle his cuteness! I mean just look at this sweet face! He loves his aunt Heather so much already! 


and his cousin, Ella! He gave her LOTS of puppy kisses! 


Trying to smile through that awful football game. We still wear our "G" proudly! 


Ian can't get enough of Zeke either. 


One of Ian and Conyer's "girl" friends came over to watch the game with us on Saturday. Well, she is a HUGE Auburn fan. Auburn tradition is to "roll" Toomer's corner. We thought it would be hilarious to "roll" her house! The kids were so EXCITED! (please note that her parents knew we were going to do this) so around 8:30, Stephanie and I pile in the car with the 4 kids to roll her house! 

We learned a few things. 
1. Our kids have no idea how to roll a house. 
2. Our kids have no idea how to be sneaky 
3. Our kids got caught but I think they secretly wanted to get caught so they could see her again. 
4. We helped clean up our mess. 
5. We had a lot of fun and laughed till our sides hurt. 



Sunday, we ran a few errands including going to the Mall of Georgia. I went grocery shopping to prepare for the week, did laundry, planned my week to balance out my Etsy shop, fall cleaning, and PTO commitments. Is it Friday yet?? 😉😉

Hope you guys have a GREAT Monday! Remember to come back tomorrow to see part UNO of our Mexico trip!
