Weekend Waco Visit

Last weekend we headed to Waco to make up for the weekend we missed prior when Rylie was sick. We hadnt seen everyone in awhile so it was due time!

I had to take my mom's mother's day gift to her, a baby shower gift to a friend, my nephew Hayden's late birthday present, and my dad's father's day gift.

We got to my dad's late Friday night. Rylie and I had a slumber party in the guest room while David slept in the other room with Remy in her pack'n play. Rylie was so excited to be there! And my dad loved his western movies. I wish I'd taken more photos at their house but Remy was everywhere and it was late. He made us a good pancake breakfast the next morning tho!

Saturday morning we met Sarah and Isaac at a local park so the kids could burn off energy. It was hot, but not near as bad as Houston. We stayed for 2 hours and it didnt even feel like it was 94 degrees. I took this cute picture of the kids before they got sweaty and yucky....and I wanted to take more......but this is what happens when Rylie just takes off to play leaving little sister behind..

Poor Remy! She fell sideways first then rolled off the bench from the backside. She was ok though.

"Ugh! I cant believe Rylie did that to me!"

Rylie and Isaac just ran around while Remy crawled nearby

He was helping her on the monkey bars. So sweet.

Then we met my mom and Justin and Hayden for dinner at Uncle Dan's! My mom loved her ice cream bowl that Rylie handpained herself months ago.

Hayden giving Remy sugars. He was too funny as we were leaving and kept giving Remy hug after hug! I didnt think we'd ever get them separated!

Cousin group hug!!

I wish we'd gotten to see more friends but no matter how long we visit we can never fit everything in! Hopefully we wont take as long to return again!

Dining Room Tour

Continuing with Kelly's Korner home tours this week with dining rooms!

This was our dining room after we moved in 4 years ago. I changed it up about a year or 2 after we moved in and it's been this way since....

Our dining room's immediately to the left when you walk in our front door. I'd really like to paint the bottom half sometime and want to add a few decorations on top of the china cabinet.

We rarely eat in here except when company's over and special holidays so it always stays clean.

I love the pictures in here and have been thinking about moving them to the living room above the couch. But then I wouldn't know what to put in here.

View of dining room from kitchen

Wedding china in the cabinet. I use the tea cups and saucers at bedtime when I drink chamomille tea. They're there to be used afterall right?

And for fun here's how the dining room table is for some holidays....




I love looking at dining room tabletops. Thanks for stopping by!

I'm LOVING this blue vase I found for $10 at Ross. Matches our new bedding perfectly!

I'm LOVING Rylie's 4th of July shirt that Becca made!

I'm LOVING Rylie's lobster hairclip that arrived for our trip to Maine in 2 weeks!

I'm LOVING these bows that Holly made for the girls to match these outfits....

....also to wear in Maine for 4th of July. How perfect & cute are these for the trip?!

I'm LOVING that Rylie's dance recital picture came in! lol Her expression cracks me up!

I'm LOVING the Pottery Barn Kids catalog that came in the mail so I can drool over everything.

And I'm LOVING that Rylie's so excited to go to swim lessons this afternoon!

Hope you all are LOVING your Wednesday!

Weekend & Father's Day

We had a pretty smooth weekend considering the long week with Rylie being sick!

Saturday I had to get out & have some me time. Being cooped up all day, everyday, for a week with both girls had me going stir crazy! I went to HomeGoods and Ross to look at ideas for changing up our master bedroom.
This is the pottery barn bedding I mentioned in the Show Us Your Life tour Friday. We decided to go for it & give our room a new look! This is an inspiration board I made for the look we're going for. I found a lot of cute affordable ideas at both stores! Then Mimi and Gaga came over to cheer Rylie up. She was bummed about missing everyone in Waco. I forgot to take any photos.

Sunday these cuties were ready to love on Daddy! Remy's shirt says "I love Daddy" and Rylie's hairbow said "Daddy's Girl"

David and his girls!

We met Dave's dad and Donna for lunch after church

Dave's stepsister and her boyfriend came too

And uncle Daniel

Then we headed to pottery barn to get the bedding and check out the new Trader Joe's that just opened in the Woodlands! I'm so excited! It just opened Friday. We ran in real quick and got a few things we've been waiting for. I'd call it a successful weekend overall tho!

This blog is linking with Lowercase Letters Miscellany Monday.

Sick Rylie, Lunch at Mimi's, 2nd Swim Lesson, Cancelled Weekend

I havent been able to blog as much as I'd like lately. I'm going to do a big recap before I forget any details. Yall got a big kick out of Remy trying to climb out of the shopping cart a few weeks ago. Here's an updated picture on how we now shop with her.

Rylie was always "put together" as a baby with matching shoes & bow. Remy's lucky to have clothes on lol She's a stinker!
I forgot to blog this earlier because these pictures were on another camera but Tues June 5th Rylie started another Summer camp at her school.
A comparison from last year. If you look where her head is compared to the banister, she looks to have grown a few inches!

She was so excited to be back! Thankfully she's in the same classroom with her favorite teacher & buddy Logan.
Her teacher sent me this picture. Apparently she was building a church. She also told her teacher on the first day "I wonder what Miss Beth is wearing!" lol She loves Miss Beth who does the chapel time!

This past Saturday morning Rylie started running a fever. It didnt go away after a few hours so I stayed home with her while David & Remy attended our friends crawfish boil. She had no other symptoms so we figured it was a fluke.

Sunday we headed to Mimi's for lunch to visit

Me and little Remster at Mimi's

Mimi's had to childproof her house for this monster. She loves making out with the fridge tho lol

And loved looking out the window at sister!

And her K9 cousin Sam!

Speaking of stinker....On Monday I kept telling Remy "No!" when she wanted the laundry basket off the couch. She finally reached it & pulled it on top of her trapping her under. I couldnt help but laugh and take a picture!

Peek a boo Remy! Then she realized she was stuck and we rescued her lol

Rylie's fever came back Sunday night and a little Monday so I took her to the Dr on Tuesday when Remy had her 9 mo checkup. The Dr said it was just a virus & should be gone soon. We just needed to wait it out.
Wednesday Rylie was feeling better, didnt have a fever, and begged to go to swim lessons! What? The girl who was terrified last week is begging to go?! I figured it'd be ok since it was just 30 minutes and in the water the whole time.

She did GREAT! This was a huge step for her to kick her legs being on her belly. She never lets go and relaxes enough to be on her belly!

Practicing arm strokes.

Another huge step! Floating and kicking legs on her back! We just love this swim teacher! I cant believe how much more comfortable Rylie is already! So she did great and all but then Thursday morning her fever came back....
And in the afternoon she broke out in hives all over. Her poor face was pretty swollen.

She had huge welts all over her face, arms, hands, legs, and feet. So I immediately woke Remy from her nap and rushed her to the Dr. I was afraid she was having an allergic reaction to something.

Or hoping it wasnt chickenpox. These pictures dont do it justice. Poor baby was hurting and crying saying "Why are these booboos on me?!?"
She told everybody in the office she did not like shots! Well, they had to do a finger prick and check her blood. Dr said it's just hives most likely from the virus she's had and nothing more. They gave her benadryl and they were gone within an hour! But she had a fever again and Dr said she's still contagious until it's gone =(

So unfortunately we've had to cancel our trip to Waco this weekend to visit friends/family =( Oh my she cried and was so heartbroken! She probably told everyone she saw recently that she was going to Waco and who all she would see. These things just happen.

And I just wanted to include what I've also been very busy with!

Big stinker Remster! She is so bad! lol
This was Thursday morning....and her shirt's not buttoned up because she's a really difficult child to change diaper and/or dress. So she's lucky to have a shirt on period.

And this was her Thursday evening! TROUBLE!! Poor Rylie's been sick on the couch and in her sad little voice saying "Mommy! Please come lay with me! I need you!" And I'm busy pulling Remy off of everything in the house!

Yall just pray for us this weekend lol
