house in the 'hood

I hope your Tuesday is going swell so far.
I'm in a better place today.
We went for ice cream after school yesterday
then went home for dinner.
I was scared to ask the boys if they knew why 
we were enjoying ice cream on a weekday
especially right before dinner.
The twins remembered...our youngest not so much.
But he will in time,
with stories told repeatedly about her 
and why her name always comes up 
when we watch Harry Potter movies,
remembering how my in-laws took her to the bookstore at midnight
when a new Potter book was released
 and how she would stay up all night devouring every word.
Then sit there and read it again.
Oh how she loved to read. :)
I see her in our boys for sure
and that makes my heart happy.

I'll be out of pocket for the next few days.
I'm super excited...more on that when I get back.
Until then I hope you enjoy my most recent favorite
house in the 'hood...

reverse dinner

It's hard to believe that its been two years since heaven got 
the kindest and most gentle angel from our family.

I have a lot to say but I can't today.
If you don't mind, how about today
I link to this...the way it was.
It will explain why we're eating dinner in reverse tonight.

more leopard to love

Hey y'all.
Hope you had a happy weekend.
The kids are back in school 
and I'm officially back to getting stuff done.
Insert high five emoji here.

This week is my kids spring break from school.
Hence the radio silence.
We were going to drive to Savannah for a few days.
One little problem with that...
well, lots of problems really...

the look for less

I've seen this purse on the arms of moms at school
and immediately fell in love...

my next COURAGEworks class

Not much time to talk today
but I want to share the next class I signed up for
in case you too need to heal some hurt
as well as learn how to apologize...

spring showers

I'm not sure what the weather is doing where you are
but its been raining in Houston for three days now.
The good news is that it's not flooding.

what to wear

Anybody else walk into their closet 
and get the "I have nothing to wear" feeling.
Even though your chest of drawers are full
and there's plenty of things hanging about?
I know.
First world problems right?
Even though there's plenty of stuff in my closet
I am not a clothes horse at heart.
I nannied for a couple of families during my college years
and one of my bosses nicknamed my "the queen of t-shirts" 
if that gives you any indication as to how I roll.
Comfort is key.
If the material isn't soft I'm not wearing it.
Sensory issues much?
