Labor Day Weekend || 2015

Wednesday, September 9, 2015

We took advantage of the long weekend and escaped for an adult trip to Bimini in the Bahamas with some friends of ours to celebrate on of their birthdays.  

We stayed at a house in the World Bimini Resort...It was so pretty! 

We left Friday, at the crack of dawn and got back Monday. It was a quick little trip...2 hours by boat. 

We traveled by boat--they have one. 

It was such a blast! We ate, drank and relaxed in the sun every single day. No meal and naptime routine. Nowhere to be. The gentlemen did a little lobstering while the gals relaxed. We jet skied and went paddle boarding. 

but we definitely missed the kiddos a lot! 

The water was absolutely beautiful!

Reality hit us pretty hard Tuesday morning. So hopefully by tomorrow we will all be back in our routine! 

Hope you had a great long weekend as well! 



Friday Favorites

Friday, August 28, 2015

It's  Friday!! 
And we have officially survived our first week of school!! And I am back for another round of Friday Favorites. 

one || I'm not going to lie to you, I feel sleep deprived. And I'm pretty sure the hubs and Gustavo feel the exact same way! We have to wake the poor little guy up a whole hour before he normally wakes up.  we are still adjusting. 

But in the school adjustment department, he doing fantastic! He loves it! 

two || who's ready for fall?! If you missed my style post this week it's here...

three || Yesterday, Olivia and I ventured out to Old Navy, I snagged some great deals...meanwhile, all my little sidekick wanted to do was take "pitures" with her "new friends". I'm pretty sure she was making a scene. 

I think she needs a let's convince the hubby ;)

four || oh yeah and the "rella" that was another thing. only she could hold it. I love her independence and she was loving the umbrella that was twice her size. 

five || I'm still thinking about the crockpot chicken tacos I made Wednesday for dinner...I had plenty of leftovers for lunch the next day! I'll probably make them again this weekend! 

Hope you have a great weekend! 



Dinner Rut.

Thursday, August 27, 2015

It's Thursday!! That means the weekend starts tomorrow!! 

Gustavo has had a great first week of school so far! Tuesday was the first day we actually left him there and he came home like this...

His whole class had crowns on! How cute is this? 
I love that sweet smile!! 

 Yesterday, his teacher said he napped great--probably because he now has to get up about an hour earlier than normal. I was kind of nervous about the nap time situation. At his old preschool I always picked him up right after lunch so he had never really napped anywhere else besides home and his grandparents house. So thankful for that! 

On the other hand, I have been sensing the little miss has been feeling a bit lonely. 

 We've been in a dinner rut lately. I'm so tired of making the same few dishes every week-- its so blah...

Yesterday, I stepped it up a notch and whipped out my crock pot, which I had abandoned lately. I don't I've used it in months. Well let's just say I have fallen in love with it all over again! I am so excited! 

I was catching up on some blog reading Tuesday night and ran into some simple crock pot recipes from The Mix and Match Mama. I love her recipes because they're quick and simple! 
The crock pot chicken tacos really caught my eye and I had everything we needed for them!! WINNING!!!

The only thing I semi changed up was the recipe called for chicken breast and I used boneless, skinless chicken thighs and it worked just as great! 

They were the easiest thing to make--I hardly had to shred the chicken because it was so soft from being in the crock pot all day, it almost just fell apart on it's own!  and let's just say dinner was ready by 3:30pm----talk about ahead of the ball game! And the kids LOVED them. They chowed them down. literally.
