Mom to Iris. Wife to Todd. Our little family lives at the foothills of the Ozark Mountains in Fayetteville, Arkansas. We love it here and I love sharing little bits of our life.

LIFE LATELY – May 2017

It’s been a while since I’ve given a little life update, so I thought I’d fill ya in on what we’ve been up to. Between work trips, vacations, and meetings, I feel like my day-to-day continues to be a whirlwind. Our trip to Hollywood this past week was so great and I can’t wait to share a full post of our adventures soon. I got back to Arkansas just in time to start a week of big exciting projects – both at work and at home.

If you’ve been following along on Instagram Stories, you know that we’ve started the process of painting the exterior of our home. Partnering with CertaPro, we’ve finally decided on a shade Sherwin-Williams paint color for our brick! I’m so excited to share the progress, as I’ve never done a project like this before. We just need this crazy rain to stay far away so we can finally dry off around here.

In equally exciting news, Iris goes in for Kindergarten assessment in a couple weeks. I’m not sure what all it involves, but she’s really thrilled to visit her new school for the first time. We drive by it all the time and even stop to play on the playground, but she’s yet to see inside. Recently it was voted the number one public elementary school in the state, so I’m quite thrilled myself.

Later this month we’re also headed out on our annual Rosemary Beach getaway. It feels strange that it’s coming up so quick – our California trip threw me off a bit, but I’ll be certainly be ready for a full week of vacation when it’s time.

Lastly, that brings me to Todd who has a new(ish) hobby that he’s really gotten into. He’s joined the cycling world and rides his bike nearly every day. I try not to get too nervous as he’s exploring the country roads, but overall he loves it and is actually pretty darn good, even for someone who just started a year ago.

Well, it’s time to get our weekend started. Hoping mine (and yours!) is filled with a mix of fun and relaxation.
