Sorry for the lack of posting on Monday, we had an early meeting at Madison's school to sign papers for her to begin testing. Testing takes about 45 days so we will know more after that time, I sincerely want to thank everyone who reached out to me with advice! It's a pretty great and supportive community here and I'm thankful for it. Y'all always know how to fix me life ;)
We spent most of last week preparing for a Sip and Shop at my house, the hardest part was figuring out how to organize and price all the clothing. I have a lot of friends who'd rather shop in person than online so I thought it would be nice to have a night they could all come and try items on. It's really a lot of work to be ready for something like this - all online orders must be packed and gone and we have to take the store offline so we don't have any conflicting inventory.
We had the most beautiful cookies made from The Texas Cookie Company! I can't believe someone can hand make these all so perfectly, plus they tasted amazing!

We had about 40 people come, it was a lot of fun, I think we will hold one every season. We learned a few things this time that should help make the next party a little easier.
Sunday we got up early to hit the Arboretum when it opened for our yearly Spring family pictures. We actually prefer to do pictures early in the morning, the kids are happy, and it's a lot less crowded there. Don't my boys look so handsome??
My friend Mallory brought me a flower headband and Madison wanted to wear it in every picture. The weather was absolutely stunning and all the flowers were blooming, it was almost magical!
We got some fantastic shots, I know i"m going to want to put this up all over the house when I get them all back from Amber Jane Images.
Back in February I ordered these tulle skirts and they just happened to come in on Friday, it was meant to be! I'll try to be patient and not text Amber 75 times while I wait for the rest to come back. Isn't Oliver handsome in his linen pants? He's been doing so great maintaining his recent weight loss! I'm letting the idea of running again simmer in his brain for a bit ;)
