an awesome month

I would have posted earlier... but, I FINALLY had to buy more storage for the blog. I knew it was about to happen. It took a while for it to get added in, and I couldn't post without my pictures! :)

it's been about a month since I've "really" updated. I'll do some random stuff tonight, and then tomorrow I'll do an entire post about what baby D has been up to.

I've been back at work for almost 6 weeks now... it is going good. Of course I miss my little fatty-fatty, but who wouldn't. I've gotten into a routine and the transition has really not been too bad. I think it helps that we have such an amazing support system... and an amazing baby.

what's been going on with me:

I had my birthday. 30. whoop whoop! We celebrated with family at my favorite restaurant, ate cupcakes, and played pass the baby. I love 30... it's gonna be a good year.

1. I participated in a secret mommy swap on a December.Mommy.Board I'm active with, I am so excited. I can't wait to get baking!
2. I've been drinking WAY too many redbulls since I went back to work... I think I am making up for the lost time when I was pregnant and couldn't drink them. And yellow toes for summertime!
3. One of my birthday gifts from ra was a membership to birchbox. I am loving everything and always looking forward to my next box!

 4. When we play-date at CFA (Chick-Fil-A for those who are not in the know) we always order the same.exact.thing. and we're so nice to let the waitress know all of our quirks ahead of time... something like this "Hi. we're ready to order when you are, we always get the same thing. ::smile:: I'll have the char-grilled salad with the fruit on it, but with fried chicken instead of grilled, extra sunflower seeds instead of granola, ranch dressing and a large half sweet half unsweet tea in a to-go cup with lots of ice. Thanks so much."
5. Our friends A&E came over with their AWESOME kiddos to play one night... we had so much fun. Baby D was already down for bed, but we watched the kids ride bikes, played sidewalk chalk, roasted marshmellows for smores, and had ice cream cones. They left all the left over ice cream and cones here (shame, shame) and we ended up eating it ALL. It was such a treat, ice cream cones in bed for about 4 days straight. haha
6. The FIRST time the boys rode together. Bestie and I play every week... and she has been more than accommodating with my first.time.mommy.anxiety. always offering up her house so we don't have to go out, always helping with D and making sure Jack plays "quietly" why baby D is napping... although I still have A TON of anxiety, it is getting better. and this day felt like a small victory for me. thank you ra.

Our nephew is enjoying his first year of t-ball! Ethan is having a blast, and we were so excited we could make it to his first game! I'm not sure who had more fun, Ethan or pawpaw!

1. I'm back at the tanning bed... I love the one I go to because it is literally right.outside.the.back.door. at work. I can go on my break, walk across the street, tan, walk back, and eat all in 30 minutes.
2. we played the lottery! haha, when the jackpot was $640 million I bought some tickets. we won $3. haha
3. The warmer weather makes me want to eat summer food. we've had hotdogs and hamburgers on the grill about 10 times in the past month. I've made pasta salad, baked beans, chicken salad sammys, strawberry shortcake, and banana pudding. I love summer food!
4. new soaps at work are delicious!
5. we love starbucks k-cups. Do you have a favorite flavor coffee cup? we like to try new ones too!

6. The hubs and I had a date the other night... milk shakes on the front porch.
7. I should really clean my desk, instead of playing on FB.
8. If you'll remember, I decided to write 40 letters in 40 days for lent. I'm finished. Baby D helped me mail the rest this morning.
9. I got the boys matching game day chairs for Easter. eeepppp <3 I'll post a pic of Durham sitting in his tomorrow.

ok, I'll be back tomorrow night 
with some CUTE pictures of Durham. :)
