This morning’s sunshine and a chocolate cheesecake protein shake I make for me and my boy once or twice a month…usually just whenever I have a little leftover cottage cheese

A photo from above of a shake in a glass cup with a stainless steel straw sticking out

Thrift finds from last weekend in Bossier visiting my fam

Pretty little hummingbird mirror is for my girl’s room because she’s recently loving them (and all other sorts of animals)

Fiesta mug is to add to my Fiesta collection

Framed barn print is to put in my laundry room with some other old art

Hanging out in the pantry last night during a tornado warning

Happy gal and her reflection in a glass refrigerator door

Roadkill I’ve seen the last few days: squirrel, possum (or opossum, if you prefer), alligator, and a bird (I think a hawk).

Brigsby found a great blue heron in the trees today instead of at the pond. Can you spot it?

Finally started this this morning. 🎉

It has been a FULL couple of weeks, and I am just really excited to be HOME (almost) all day tomorrow.

Trying to decide if I’m going to start letting badge notifications prod me to get things done in a more timely fashion.

Filled out a form for my kids to attend an event. Had to put their ages, but was instructed to mark myself as “adult.” Something about that just sank in. I feel like their adult, their parent. But I don’t always feel like simply an “adult.” 😜

Spring foliage. Not sure why, but I feel extra accomplished to have these irises that will bloom this year on the edge of our pond. #mbapr

One of our favorite card games: Skyjo #mbapr

So excited for garden flowers coming soon! #mbapr

One single Zinnia (Envy) bloom

Searched “toy” in the Photos app on my phone. There were lots of options. But this was one of my most recent favorites. We love to LEGO over here (LEGO was in a big percentage of those photos that came up). #mbapr

4-year-old girl putting together a Lego set

She had a birthday this week 🎉

We went to our homeschool co-op, had waffles for lunch, she opened presents, competed in a Pac-Man tournament (she won!), and had mac-n-cheese (per her request) for dinner.

Just real happy baseball is back.

Found a baby turtle last week. Fascinated at its beauty. After the kids observed it a while, it made it safely into our pond.

Thrifted all of this for $1.50 yesterday

Spring Equinox craft (by my girl) at co-op today

A hand holding up a craft project consisting of popsicle sticks backed with clear packing tape, sticky side up, and foraged wildflowers arranged prettily on top

Planted two trees today. And that always makes me want to plant a loooooot more.

Traveling for the first time since Christmas. To see my family 3 hours away. Which was the last place we traveled as well. Looking forward to this trip. But also excited for some other destination trips coming up soon, I hope.
