Dress of the week August 29th!

Good morning Ladies ! I missed out on posting last week, please forgive me! On August 15th we went to the mall of America with our old neighbor Brandon and his Girlfriend . We had dinner at Wahlbergers restaurant and then proceeded to the comedy club on the top floor. Their first date was at the comedy club . When the show was over Brandon got down on one knee and proposed to Josie! It was so sweet , she was overcome with emotion and there were lots of happy tears , and she said yes!! We were in on the little scheme beforehand and it was lovely to share in the moment.

The rest of the weekend went pretty normal . The kids continue to get ready for back to school. They are doing 2 days at school and 3 days distant Learning. I hope it goes as smooth as possible! They have most of the items on the list purchased already for the start of school.

Last Saturday the boys earned some money landscaping with the afforementioned Brandon at his new house. It is good for them to learn that work has its rewards and they got payed very well, alot more than I could have dreamed of at their age!

On Sunday our new neighbors came over as a family for ice cream and get to know you chat! We layed out a bunch of toppings that we purchased and it was so good! It nearly looked like I wanted to impress the neighbors, right?! The kids had played together a few times since they moved in August 1st, their daughter and our son are going to be in the same class in school which is nice. I think we will get along good with them.

This week the older boys started football for the first time. It is flag football which is non tackle , I am grateful for that! They did very well for their first try and have a few more practice sessions and games coming up. Today is going to be one of projects around the house and the ever present Laundry!

Dress of the week August 15th (and featuring baby Scarlett!)

Good  morning  Ladies !  How  are  you  all  doing?  We  had  a  pretty  nice  week  so  far, there  were  some  days  really  humid and  some  cooler.  Last  night  we  had  a  big  thunderstorm  and  areas  close  to  here  had  downed  trees.  It  is  calm  this  morning  and  expecting  a  lovely  day.  It  is  57  right  now  and  a high  will  be 73 degrees.

Last  weekend was  nice  and  relaxing  I  got  a  bunch of  laundry  done  and some  house  projects  sorted  while  everyone  was  out  and  about .  The  kids  cousin Tyler  came  and  stayed  for   3  days from  Saturday  until  Tuesday. It is  the  first  time  he  felt  ok  being  away  from his  family!

We  are  continuing  to  get  ready  for  back top  school  with items  being  purchased ( a  new addition this  year is  masks , who would have thought!

We  had  our  old  neighbor ( seems  strange to  say )  Brandon  along  with  his daughter and   his  Girlfriend  over for  dinner  on  Thursday. It  was  a nice  evening , and  we  got to catch up. We are going out  on  a double  date  night  tonight with  them  and we are  in on  a little  secret that  Brandon is  planning For  his girlfriend ,  shhh!

I  have  been  following  Courtney Byers  on  her  blog  a  Byers guide for  about  4  years  now .  She  does  lifestyle  and  fashion  posts  and is the  sweetest!  On  Thursday  May  14th  Courtney  and  her  husband  Jake became  the  proud first  time    parents   to  the  gorgeous  Scarlett Victoria who  weighed in  at  6 ib  5  ozs.   Courtney  has  been  excited  to   be a  Mom   since  she  was  a little   girl and  that  wish  came  true  with  the  birth of  her baby  girl.

Courtney  continues  to  post  a  lot  of  lovely    life  updates  as Scarlett gets bigger in  a  very  loving  home. Here  is  a mother’s day post  from Courtney to Scarlett, it is  just  beautiful!  She is now  3  months old!   Thank you  Courtney  for  allowing  me to  feature you  this week!

Dress of the week August 8th!

Good morning Ladies , how are you doing? We have had a beautiful week of weather, lows in the 60s and highs in the 70s. There was also very little humidity. I hope you are experiencing nice weather too.

Last weekend was pretty quiet , we did have new neighbors move in after our old one moved out, They are really nice with two girls, 11 and 7. I expect we will get to know them as time goes on.

We found out the schedule for school this fall, they will go to school 2 days and learn from home 3 days to start. I am glad they get some days back as it is important for kids to be in a classroom setting. They start on the 31st of this month. I believe they will be fine with all the precautions taking place.

On Thursday our 10 and 7 year old boys went with their Grandparents camping for two days. They have a camper that they pull behind their vehicle and are by a nice lake. We will pick them up later today.

Our Daughter is excited, as on Wednesday she gets her braces off. It has been a long period of patience for a 13 year old but she will be rewarded for it!

Dress of the week August 1st!

Good   morning  Ladies  and  happy August to you! The  year  is  moving  forward  so  fast even  with  covid  19  dominating everything  .  We a re  doing  our  best  to keep  things  as  normal  as  possible .   The  kids  are  enjoying  the  pool  most  days ,  the  weather  is  staying  pretty  warm  so it is  a  good  cool  down  to jump in  the  water!   Today is  only  getting into  high  70’s and  it  will  be  70’s  all  week . It  is  my  kind of  weather  I  must  admit!tumblr_otyk0lnKbu1sbqfz9o1_1280

Last  weekend  was  nice  and  relaxing ! Everyone  else  took a  trip to Fargo to  visit  my  beloved spouse’s   college roommate and  their  family   and  kids.   They left  Friday  morning  and  came  back on  Sunday night! I  got  a  little  me  time  which  was  nice, well  just  the  puppy  and  I !  He  still  needed  minding.   It was  really  strange not  having  a  kid  shout out  looking  for  me!  I got out to  do  some  shopping  and  did  a  skype  call  with  two good  friends  of  mine.

Our  neighbor Brandon , a single  Dad  and  his  daughter   Maddi  moved  to  a  new  house  Yesterday. We  are  sad  to  see  them  go, they  were  wonderful , helpful, full of life  neighbors. They moved  about 4  miles  away  , so  not  too  far ,  we  will get  to  see  them often!

We  are  having  a nice  weekend, pretty  quiet,  we  met  the  new  neighbor  Lady.  She  was  there  with  her  friend  repainting, her  husband  and  2  daughters  were  not  there  yet. The  girls  are  close in age  to two of our  kids.

From last weekend!
