It’s May already??

It’s been a while since I checked in. About a month and a half, I guess. It’s really true that time flies. 

We ended up closing on our house on March 31st. April was spent moving, unpacking, and organizing. I’m very relieved to be in, I still am completely in love with our new home. We have beautiful mountain views, we’re in a great neighborhood and our kids are happy here too. Win, win, win. 😁

Celebrating our new house with family 🥂


The view from our backyard ❤️


We hosted Easter dinner after moving in 2 weeks before. We pulled it off and everything was perfect. My hubby was a huge help!  He got all of my pictures and wall decor hung up, organized the backyard and even did some cleaning.  Everything turned out lovely for dinner, and we had beautiful weather. I wish I would have taken some pics of the food and table settings. 

Also in April- my youngest daughter had her school play. This year she didn’t have a part in the play- she was in the stage crew. She really loved it! The kids did such a good job. It was Seusical the Musical. You never really know what you’re going to get at an elementary school play. 😉 But they really did a nice job. 

I hope you all had a beautiful Mothers Day weekend!!  Saturday my hubby had a golf event, so I hung out at home, did some cleaning and caught up on my dvr. Also, the a/c went out!! That could be a terrible thing in May in the desert, but thank goodness we had some cool days. The a/c guy was able to get here on Tuesday  and everything is fine now. Sunday started with breakfast in bed (the first time ever- I am always the first one up) and then we took the girls to Mt Lemmon. It’s kind of become our Mothers Day tradition.  We went to my sisters house for lunch after (since our a/c was out) and had chicken ceasar salads. So delicious. 

Hubby and I at one of the lookouts. Ignore my hair- the wind was crazy!

Not quite the top-  but still an amazing view. 

I’d love to hear about your Mother’s Day. I hope you all felt loved and appreciated. ❤️

Thursday’s Thoughts

The past month has been INSANE. I feel like every week something new is happening.  We started house shopping, went to Vegas, work stuff for me, work stuff for my hubby, sick parents, sick kids and now we’re under contract for a new house!!  So some really exciting stuff + some really stressful stuff= super stressed out mom!!

Today I am home with both girls, but my oldest is sick. She has a pretty high fever and hasn’t really gotten out of bed except for her doctor appointment yesterday. The doctor said she has the flu.  I’m really just trying to keep her fever down and keep her hydrated.  She’s 14, but it doesn’t get any easier when they’re sick. It’s such a helpless feeling. 

A couple of weekends ago we drove to Vegas! It was so fun!  Our first time and it was a super quick weekend. We drove there Friday night and came back Sunday.  My hubby won $90 at the casino, we walked up and down the strip, ate some good food, saw a bunch of weirdos, the Hoover Dam…and then we came home. It was quick, it was crazy, but we had a good time. 


We have been unofficially looking for a new house for the past year. We’ve been going to open houses, and watching for listings in our are on Zillow.com, but we weren’t working with a realtor or anything. Last week we decided to get things moving-got pre-approved, scheduled a couple of days to look at homes for sale- and on day 2 we found our house!!! I couldn’t believe it. We looked at it in the morning, and had put in an offer that night. Now we’re going through the process and hopefully will close in March. It’s crazy how fast that happened. 🙂

I guess that’s what’s new here. Since I’ll be home all day and staying in, I’m planning on catching up on my cleaning. Maybe I’ll start going through closets and cupboards to get prepared for moving. 

Have a great day!!
