My Birthday!

Today is my 42nd birthday! Our family celebrated my special day by eating dinner at The Pit, which is one of our favorite restaurants on special occasions. The Pit is famous for Eastern NC BBQ and other Southern favorites. We ate chopped BBQ, mac and cheese, mashed potatoes, black-eyed peas, and biscuits with molasses. Cheers to another year!

Mother's Day

I'm thankful for Savannah and Hadley who call me "Mom." To celebrate Mother's Day, our family ate lunch at Texas Roadhouse. After napping and relaxing this afternoon, we ate dinner and played at McDonald's, visited a couple stores, and ate custard for dessert at Goodberry's. I am blessed!

Everyday Moments

Life...unedited. 
These random iPhone photos are dark, blurry, and untouched,
but they capture everyday moments from this week.

I found this pic of Savannah on my phone:

Shopping at Home Depot

Savannah loved wearing her new outfit from Grandma Barbara!

On Tuesday, Tal and I voted in the primary elections in my library at school. We voted for candidates that were pro-life and supported religious freedom, traditional marriage, and lower taxes:

At school, Savannah was excited to discover a picture of her excellent basketball skills during P.E.:

On Tuesday afternoon, the girls and I loved going to the free slime event at the public library in our neighborhood: 

The girls each made three bags of slime: glitter slime, pink slime, and blue slime:

Hadley washed dishes in her underwear:

This week Savannah finished chapter book #16...

and #17!

On Thursday night, the girls and I had a girls night, while Tal and his brother Benny attended the Blackberry Smoke concert. We played in the mall play area and visited a couple stores, as well as played and ate dinner at McDonald's:


At Barnes and Noble, Hadley held her four babies:

Hadley played with trains, while Savannah looked at books at Barnes and Noble:

On Friday night, Tal and I celebrated our 11th wedding anniversary by going downtown to Friday Night on White, which is held the 2nd Friday of each month. We set-up our beach chairs in the street, ate Bojangle's for dinner, listened to live music, ate a sno-cone, and got some free stuff from local vendors:

It was a hot evening with temps in the 90's, so the girls tried to stay cool by eating a sno-cone:

Hadley got her face painted with a rainbow:

Since Savannah got her roller skates for Easter, she has been skating in our garage almost every afternoon:

On Saturday morning, the girls and I went to family storytime at the public library in our neighborhood. All of the stories and songs focused on the letter "F:"

The girls loved feeding Hadley's Baby Alive doll, watching her go pee, and changing her dirty diaper:

I'm convinced that Hadley is a natural-born mother. She is so gentle with her babies:

Hadley hid inside her blanket fort in our living room:

NC State Softball Game

On Sunday, April 29, our family watched NC State play against UNC-Greensboro during the women's softball game. We enjoyed eating hot dogs while we watched the game, having our picture taken with Mrs. Wuf, getting the girls' faces painted as mermaids, and making balloon animals. Unfortunately, the Wolfpack lost 24-1, but we still enjoyed cheering for them and spending a beautiful day at the ballpark!
