Cirque du Soleil is back in Atlanta with its new show Amaluna. Two years ago we got the opportunity to see Totem and it was short of amazing. If you’ve never seen a Cirque du Soleil show trust me these productions are something I encourage you to add to your must see list.
Last week was super laid back, if you couldn’t tell. I was not checking for Lipgloss and Binky. When my dad comes to town I get brand new. With the children on Fall break we spent a lot of time outdoors, took a trip to the apple orchard, journeyed downtown to be immersed in all things Frozen at the Disney on Ice production….and Victoria’s Secret had a sale. Last week was good.
….because I forgot to get her legit soccer socks. She’ll be ready by Saturday. Who knew these knee high Doc McStuffins socks that she drug all around Ross would come in handy.
Photography is a huge hobby of mine. I manage to capture photos for the blog but I haven’t really taken out the time any more to really learn and get better. I’ve been hurried and now that things are starting to slow down again I am longing for days where I go back to focusing on what really matters. What really matters is daily moments spent with my family and children, doing the things I like to do and being comfortable in this life that we are living.
My husband’s best friend and his family are paying us a visit for a few days. Yesterday we thought it a good idea to take the children to Stone Mountain Park. I had only been to Stone Mountain a few times and it was for the laser show that plays nightly during the summer. Yesterday we went and took in the entire experience.
I knew there would be a lot of walking so I opted to wear tennis shoes instead of flip flops and I’m glad I did. Up until a few weeks ago I didn’t own a pair of tennis shoes other than my running shoes and they are far from cute. JD Sports was so kind to send me a pair of Air Max to review and I love them.

Last week was rough. Being a WAHM with 3 kids in perpetual motion at all times amidst blaring televisions, rugs with sharpie stains and the background noise of constant bickering is enough to send any mother batty.
Last week I was close to it. Even grabbed the calendar and started crossing off days advent calendar style. How appropriate as Christmas in July approaches. August 4th can’t come fast enough. They were at VBS for the first part of the day and I could just taste it.
This weekend was the perfect kick off to Summer.
Addison’s last day of school was last Wednesday and Adrian’s was Friday. Come Saturday morning we had a house full of children to include my nephew, as well as my niece and her friend.
By 11a everyone including the Mr. and I was outside playing.
When it was too hot to play outside the older children ventured inside to help my MIL make a cake. I just love this photo, as we know Big Mama doesn’t exist any more and it was such a joy to see them in the kitchen with Grandma.
While everyone was sucking up the air inside and taste testing cake batter I was left outside with a sweet little girl who got a new bike and was dead set on riding and roasting in the afternoon sun.
Hold on Doc….Hold on!!
Once it cooled off everyone made their way back outside for a little evening breeze. My niece caught this photo of the Mr. and I. You know he makes rare appearances around here.
Later in the evening my bestie Erika stopped by with her family. While watching the playoff game #GoHeat, we snuck in a few #Usies
Sunday, we ventured to Chuck E. Cheese for a birthday party.
Today/Monday we are planning to stay close to home. We may take a visit to a local park that has a dedicated memorial section for our fallen soldiers. Maybe I’ll try to recreate this photo from last year
A HUGE thank you to all who have served and are serving. Please be sure to tell Service Men/Women thank you when you see them.
Have a great Memorial Day!!!
