Weekend Update

Another Monday is here. It has me longing for a little bit more weekend. We had such a good one. 

Hayden and I took cupcakes to Landry's class on her birthday and she was so excited showing off her brother!

For her birthday, Tims parents sent her a surprise. They sent her cookies and ice cream. She loved it!

That night we took her to her restaurant of choice. Her party is next month and I didn't want to not do something so we took her to Cheddars. She loves this place. 

Saturday morning we had Landry's game. She is absolutely loving cheering!

Hayden loves going to the games too. He especially loves eating daddy's snacks!

And sitting in mommy's lap

Saturday night Tim and I got a date night! Sushi was on the menu and it was yummy. Love date nights with this guy!

Sunday was Super Bowl. We decided to just stay home this year and chill. It was actually really nice. We made nachos and watched the game and all the commercials. I have to say, half time was the highlight for us. Landry and Hayden both were dancing the whole time. This boy sat by me the entire night. Love my snuggle time with him!

Such a great, fulfilling weekend. Time with my favorite people is always the best.

Friday Favorites

Woohoo! It's Friday again! We have such a fun weekend ahead. I can't wait. 

But first, let's recap our week with my favorite pictures. 

I'm once again linking up with Andrea, Erika and Narci. 

A rare day in February...
Monday was so beautiful outside! I love rare days like that in the winter. It's like we get a peak at spring. And of course now it's cold again but that's ok. So since it was nice out, Hayden and I walked to get Landry from school. She gets so excited when we walk!

Could not be more right...
Y'all, I saw this on my Instagram feed and shouted yes out loud. It could not describe Tim and I more. 

100 days of school...
Tuesday marked Landry's 100th day of school. Her first idea didn't work out and she knew she had at least 1657 stickers in our house so she painted the poster and put 100 stickers on. She was so proud of it!

I've read Angie Smiths blog for years now. I love her! So when Jenn told us we'd be doing her study I think I squealed. I'm so excited to dive into this study. We started this past Wednesday. 

Hilary just so happened to buy an extra shirt that says Proverbs 31 wifey and I love it! I have the best friends. 

We have such a busy weekend ahead but I'm so excited for all we are doing!

Today the little girl that made me a mama turns seven!

I can't describe to you how much this little girl impacts our whole world. I mean, how did she go from this

To this in a blink of an eye?

Landry is a daddies girl all the way. Don't get me wrong, we are close, but give her the choice to go with Tim or I, and she chooses Tim every time. She adores him. They are buddies. They run errands together, they go to cheer practice together, he takes her to breakfast every Saturday morning before her games and she's always the first to greet him at the door when he comes home from work. 

She's a great big sister. The minute we get home from school she's in her room with Hayden playing school, or doing play doh or reading to him. She always makes sure he's taken care of. I have a feeling she'll be taking care of him his whole life. I fear for his future girlfriends! 

She and I are so close. She always wants to help me in the kitchen or watch me put my makeup on or pretty much do anything i'm doing! 

She loves Brody! He was born on her half birthday and she thinks that's pretty special! Even though she is six and a half years older than him I see her being really protective of him too! 

She's a natural born leader. She's always the one in her group telling the girls what to do and showing them how to do it. She earns the leader sticker in cheer almost every week. She always volunteers to hold the door or pass out papers in her class. And she's always the first to help someone when they don't know what to do. 

She's goofy. She knows how to have a lot of fun. She's silly. She tells jokes. She dances all the time even when there's no music on! 

She loves all her grandparents equally but she holds a special place for her Pop. Her and my dad have this bond that cannot be broken. I mean they will just look at each other and know what the other is thinking. It's so cool to see my dad with her. We always say, if Dani has a girl, we are in trouble! 

She's also really close to Tims sister Stephanie. They have slumber parties, they face time at least twice a week and Landry always runs to her the minute we see her. Steph doesn't have kids of her own and she's always had this bond with Landry and I love it. 

Landry loves her family. She's like me in that sense. She always wants to spend time with my parents and Tims parents. Anytime we are having people over she gets excited and anxiously awaits them coming. 

She's super smart. She's already reading on a second grade level and just keeps going when she's met a goal. She is such a learner and a go getter. And she always wants to be learning something or trying something new. I love that about her. 

She adores her friends. These girls are all younger than her and she loves that! Anytime we get together with all the kids she's the one corralling them and keeping them in line. We always know what the girls are up to because Landry is in charge! 

I can't even begin to tell you what this girl means to me. She's my friend, my girl, my cheerleader, and my baby. She's so sweet and always has kind words for others. I hope she never looses that quality. 

Love you Landry Kate Smith!

Women's retreat weekend

This weekend was such a blessing to me. A few months ago I joined our women's ministry team at our church. It just so happens two of my best friends are on the team as well plus two other ladies I absolutely adore. I have been so fulfilled helping on this team. 

This past weekend we held our women's ministry retreat for the ladies at our church. We've been planning and praying over this event for a while. It was such a success! God is so good!

Our team of ladies
We made the wooden signs and the fabric banner. It turned out so cute. 

How our team really acts!

We had super cute shirts made

I would not have had as much fun this weekend without this girl by my side. I love being with her and she makes everything more fun!

Such a great and fulfilling weekend!
