What we’ve been up too..

Well, now that I’ve finally finished all 3 50 Shades books, I can resume normal life again. (Although, I’m not sure “normal” exists after being introduced to Christian Grey!) I LOVED them!! So glad I gave into the hype and read them.

So, here’s a little bit of a recap of life lately…

We attended a Gender Revealment Party for one of our best friends, Marc, and his sweet girlfriend, Kate. We are SO excited for Marc and Kate… and extremely anxious to find out what they’re having. Kate decorated and it was precious!


I, of course, chose a bow! I was certain that it was a girl! ;)


G made a friend!

Everyone is so excited!!!


Marc and his sweet, Kate!

We finally ended the school year and are looking forward to a GREAT summer! We’re not attending the summer program so it was a little bittersweet saying goodbye to everyone! I know that we’re going to have lots of fun on our break though!!

Ethan has ended his very first T-Ball season! We had a blast!!! He definitely likes baseball and can’t wait to play again! I am already having withdraws! :) Looking forward to a Dulins baseball camp this summer and fall sports, just around the corner!

What everyone 4yr old boy wants…. A TROPHY!!!!


Showing it off… he was so happy!


Look at him! Gosh, do I love him!

Well, so far we have had a great summer!!! Hopefully, I can get all caught up on the blog and keep y’all up to date on all the fun we’re having!!! Next week starts all the madness of VBS and summer camps! Fortunately, we have hired a summer nanny to help me with the kids. She is WONDERFUL!!! I am so thankful to have her! I know it’s going to be a great summer! I hope everyone else has been having as much fun as we have!

Tate’s Wedding Shower

A few weekends ago, April and I hosted a bridal shower for our dear friend, Candice. It turned out wonderfully and everyone had a great time!! We are getting more and more excited for Candice’s wedding in July!!


She ended up with lots of gifts!


Everyone really seemed to enjoy the food. The menu consisted of: Onion Soufflé Dip, Poppy seed Ham Sandwiches, fruit and dip, pasta salad, April’s meatballs, and even more! The beverage of the day was Firefly Sweet Tea (firefly sweet tea vodka and simply lemonade… OOH MY GOODNESS.. SO good!!)


The décor included a lot of burlap and mason jars! SOOO cute!!

I put all my mason jars to good use! I ordered the sweet paper straws and tags.


It was a kitchen shower, so we tried to incorporate kitchen utensils in the flower arrangements.


We set up an “Advice Jar” in lieu of a guestbook. Everyone gave her piece of marital advice. We also included recipe cards with the invitations and everyone brought along their favorite recipe to the shower.
