March madness

But nothing to do with sports...

These last few days have included time with a lot of my favorite people of ever.

We finished off "spring Break" with the Ponce bunch on Thursday of last week.
We went to see 'Mr Peabody and Sherman' and had lunch at Chickfila.
The movie was very cute, the kids had a great time playing, and Amanda and I got to chat for hours like old times!
It was a good day.

My mom called me Friday morning and asked if I would run errands with her before my brother's babies came over to stay the night...
My sister didn't want to go but volunteered to keep the boys for me so I could go.
We squeezed in manicures, pedicures and icecream while we were out, and made it back just in time to catch Ellie and Gunner and play for a few minutes.

We left mom's and met up with my SIL and her family for dinner.
They came over afterward and the boys rode around on the Ranger while us girls stayed in and chatted.

Landry and Dane stayed the night, and Lance played mommy-- since I had to get up and go to work Saturday morning.

Saturday night my kids went camping with my dad and Julie and we went on a "parents night out" on our friend's party bus.
I had a killer headache that wouldn't budge with Advil, Tylenol, or a Joe T's margarita-- but I still had fun with some beautiful people.
...I just had it over cocacola, water --and a nap on a "party bus"!

Wendy (who can wear a trashbag and still be beautiful) talked me into red lipstick.
Que the blog were I vowed that I would never wear it--
I wore it.
I loved it.
I over-selfied...
And I already bought my own.
Because Wendy knows what's up!

Monday is my laundry day, so typically there's not much fun to report.
It was St Patrick's day but as a SAHM, that's about as important as flag day.

My sweet husband however, walked in from work with flowers and candy for me, "because it's Monday" he said...
And a special delivery from our friend Kaleb for the boys.

Tuesday was an emotional one for me.
I let something dumb hurt my feelings and couldn't ditch my own drama.
But then I stopped in to my high school job and chatted, laughed and had lunch with my old boss Rayanne.
She not only picked up my mood, but also my tab-- and turned my day around!

Maddox had his first tball practice that evening...
but I was juggling Beckham, and call ...and only took one picture.

That night at dinner, I noticed something black in the back of Maddox's mouth.
He calmly said, "oh, it is probably just meat.  It sometimes get stuck in my hole."
I flipped out!!
Sure enough, there was a chunk of beef jerky in a space that use to be part of a tooth missing in the very back and though he said it didn't hurt, it needed to be fixed!

Julie was able to get him in the next day with the dentist that she works for.
Mom took Beckham with her to pick up Allison's car,
so Wednesday was just Maddox and I, which hasn't happened in 3 years!

We had lunch at Golden Moon, he took two fillings like a brave soldier, and then we got Legos at Target as a reward for being so incredible!

Dr Kemp was so kind and gave us an amazing rate, since he knew we were without dental insurance.
And I was very very thankful!

Thursday was pretty.
And we took advantage.

Maddox had practice again that evening, but we showed up a little early to play at the park next to his field before they got started.

A couple other little boys Beckham's age showed up for their brothers' practices, so he made two friends while Maddox practiced!

We drove to Alliance and met Candace and Audrey at the park on Friday to play.
It was a disastrous picnic of Chickfila but the weather was so pretty and we soaked it in.
And any time with Candace is good for my ab muscles.
And Al was a bonus.

We ran a few errands and Beckham was fit to be tied.
After shooing me away to poop in peace, I found him in only shoes--
in a public restroom.
You can't win them all.

Lance plays softball on Friday nights, so Allison and I made pizza bread and rented Red Box movies with the kids.

I worked Saturday.
My step-mom had promised the boys last weekend a movie-night to see the new Muppets movie--
and called to ask if she could take all 4 of the grandkids this Saturday.

Maddox had tball pictures and then we traded kids--  she borrowed my embarrassingly filthy car to fit everyone-- and then she picked up my Nana for their date.

I went to dinner with a few gal-pals,
and Lance and my sister went shopping for new pants!

Let us take a moment to see the difference two sizes down in pants make.
...And put wood on the fire to burn the old ones that he's never allowed to wear again!

Let us also notice that Paradise Panther gear he is sporting. ...And giggle.
I'll be working with him on the fight song, soon enough!  ;)

Chaney recommended Cane Rosso, and it was incredible!

It was also another weekend that I tried to order a drink and let it go to waste!
I tend to be an all or nothing kind of girl.
My $10 glass of wine was yucko, but the salad and pizza was the, so it all evened out!

The company was perfect, and I had a grand time as always with some of the prettiest chicks I know!

All four babies wanted to stay the night with my dad and Julie, so Lance and I had a second Saturday night in a row; kidless.
Which is so strange!!

We picked up the kids today and went to my parents to ride the Rangers and four-wheeler.
The boys were wiped out from their slumber-party but LOVE-LOVE a little mud!
Mom said that we were gearing up for our Red River trip and Beckham very angrily shouted back, "dis not wed wiver... dis brown wata!"
And I guess he was right.
It was brown, stinky and fun!

 Tonight we booked a little fun for my thirtieth birthday in a few weeks,
and I am super-crazy excited!!

Not about turning 30--
but for the celebration.

Beckham turns 3 a few days after my birthday so I have got to get busy planning him something too.
March has been fun--
but with tball games about to start and three of the four people living in my home having birthdays,
April is going to be madness!


  1. Several things....I love your Texas necklace. I need to check into getting one! I am sorry about your hurt feelings that other day. I had them yesterday, big time, and I tried to clear my head before going to bed, but I still woke up with them. I don't feel like I take enough candid shots of Boyd lately. I need to study your pictures because yours are always so awesome! I love the Monday, just because, gift from Lance!
