Happy Wednesday! We’re getting oh so close to vacation that I can almost smell the ocean, yet of course I’ve been assigned 8,000 projects at work at the last minute to get accomplished before I leave.
So amidst all of the chaos, I thought I’d check in with a life update and share some of the fun and exciting stuff going on in my life right now. Besides working a ton of overtime, the month of May included…
Lots of evening and weekends spent laying outside barefoot in the grass with my boys.
Seriously is there anything better?
My little man turned 6 and I can’t believe how handsome and big he’s getting.
I made him a yummy homemade Spider man Cake alongside some Hulk pudding cups.
We also took a trip to Bays Mountain Park which was a lot of fun!
While there, we saw a wolf pack…
Explored the inside of a bear den
And rode a barge out on the lake
Last but not least, this past Saturday we traded in our Jeep for a 2016 Nissan Murano.
We’re seriously in love with it, and it makes me feel like I’m driving a luxury vehicle. Plus it’s so much better on gas!
Mostly, I’ve just enjoyed spending time with my family this month and trying to make the best of what little time we’ve been able to have together. There are days where I just get so overwhelmed with the demands of my job, but knowing that I have my husband and sweet boys to come home to keeps me going strong.
Now I’m off to get my mile long to-do list finished at work so I can hopefully enjoy my vacation next week. I’m also taking a blog break next week while we’re at the Outer Banks, but I’ll be back on Monday the 20th with a full recap of our trip. Hope each of you have a wonderful week and enjoy some time with your families!
Cheers to Friday getting here ASAP! 🙂 – Cara
