life lately & {giveaway}

Hello Lovelies!!

It's friday and the start of the Memorial Weekend! Any special plans?

I'd like to thank the women & men who serve our country as well as their families who hold down their homefronts and support them!

Tomorrow one of my besties is coming over! Can't wait to catch up with C, my twin.
Then monday, my mama is coming over & we're heading to the mall (shopping may be involved) to def check out this new coffee shop that isn't starbucks! (Gasp!) I know...i am betraying my beloved starbucks but i am fond of independent coffee shops as well! lol I absolutely love spending time with my mom.

So yeh, I've slacked this week with blogging. I haven't been sleeping well: waking up with weird dreams, waking up with anxiety & that preventing me from going back to sleep, or stuff w/my lungs.

I've been so tired and the past couple days have been pretty slow meaning I've been slow as a turtle lol.

Here are a few scenes from my lazy days lately:

chopping veggies for yummy salad
took me only 50 minutes to do! haha
 coloring & drawing with a little help from washi tape, with my little friend P.
nothin like seeing the wonder & imagination through a child's eyes

 awake @6:24 AM early breathing treatment
 starbucks/grocery mini-run

And we're gonna have a little giveaway that is approximately worth $45!

Thanks for hosting such a lovely giveaway, Britt! :) I know I've been a terrible pen pal, but things have been crazy around here. But hopefully things will calm down soon. :)

I don't have any plans for the summer, but hopefully we'll be able to do some fun things for the kids - the zoo, the pool, etc.

Hope you have an amazing weekend!! xo

Pretty much just relaxing at home -- maybe some trips around the state. Beach trips, gardens, historical homes, etc.

Hi Brittany - thanks for the chance to win so many lovely things! My plans for the summer.....they are pretty low key - actually, one of them is to have coffee outside every morning (weather permitting) before I go to work and also read some kind of devotion. (That's my self-betterment plan!) My other big plan for this summer is to get all the rest of the things lined up for my son's wedding in October. Thankfully, the mother of the groom doesn't have a ton of duties....but I need to start on the ones I do have! Have a great week - you'll be in my prayers, anxiety is no fun, I've had a round or two of that this month myself. I'll pray for calmness for both of us! : )
