We had a great weekend.
There was some crying thrown in by a certain little boy, but other than that... it was good!
We made homemade pizza and played Cars A LOT.
He had to carry all 4 of these dude around all day. 
Hope everyone had a great one!

Strawberry Lemonade//Recipe

Being that it has been over 100 degrees everyday since I can't even remember, I was feeling rather summery this weekend. I really wanted to make lemon squares (and I did) but I wanted to make something Jack would enjoy as well. So! Strawberry Lemonade is what I made! 
Jack LOVES strawberries. 

Simple syrup:
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
1 lemon, sliced
2-3 strawberries, chopped

In a small pot, mix the above ingredients and bring to a boil. Let boil about 2 minutes to get the flavors going. Then strain the mixture into a pitcher. You could not strain it, but I didn't like how the cooked lemons looked. 

2-4 Lemons, sliced
5-6 strawberries, sliced
Water (depends on how big your pitcher is)

Mix these ingredients into your pitcher with the simple syrup. 


We had a fun weekend. We "swam" in our little pool, played with a lot of sidewalk chalk, lost a bunch of sidewalk chalk, baked some, had some family time, and played with trains. I love my weekends with this little man. I can't wait for the next one!!!

My mom painted all of these except the very top one (I did that one). 

Sunday Pretties...

* Possibly my dream kitchen.

* This sofa.

* I used to have these...and I want them again, BAD.

* Pretty cute.

* Pretty little house.

* Love that whole wall.

This kid LOVES water. 
He loves big swimming pools and bath time. He loves running water. 
But we live in an apartment where the pool is ALWAYS too full.
So, we bought a tiny little inflatable pool from Target for $5. 
We use a watering can to fill it and play with him.
He loves it.

We are a Yo Gabba Gabba household.

I ordered some Warby Parker's to try. I have this strange feeling that my almost two year old is going to grab and crush my current glasses. I need a backup. I cannot do anything without my glasses. Blind here.

I think I like these. They are rather large, but cute. Any thoughts?

Anniversary Date//Outfit

For our anniversary, Jeremy and I went to Lonesome Dove in Ft. Worth. It is...AMAZING. The food is just perfect. I cannot wait to go back one day.

This is what I wore...

 Top, shoes, & belt: Target
Skirt: Asos

My man.

This is our record player. I'm in love with it and the record holder it sits on. This is one of my favorite parts of out apartment (Jack's room is my other favorite). I don't have a whole ton of records, but here are a few that are currently on repeat around here....
MGMT, She & Him, & Arcade Fire.
Pinback & Pretty Girls Make Graves (I got these 7 or so years ago).
Mary Poppins.
Miss Holiday.
The best for last... CHER!


Jack and I enjoyed quite a few of these bad boys this weekend.

I'm starting this project to stay inspired and tell little stories about my life.

 Jeremy and I will be celebrating our 3rd wedding anniversary Tuesday. 
This vase (currently holding my favorite daises) is from our wedding.

Jack spent most of the day in the little pool with my niece Haylee.
