Monday Mashup

April 3, 2018


Happy Monday, friends!

I’ve been on vacation for the last ten days, soaking up so much family time! Here’s a look at what we’ve been up to the past few weeks:

-The first day of spring finally rolled around!!….with 4 inches of snow joining it. What the heck Indiana?

-And the forecast called for 8-12 more inches on Saturday. So there was really nothing else to do but stay in my pjs and watch Disney movies, ya know?

-Snow is not allowed in April, okay weather?

-Update: It snowed. On April first. Mother Nature has one sick sense of humor.

-Jon has been having trouble with his knee lately. Trouble as in swollen, painful and annoying enough that he can’t sleep. After several doctor visits and an MRI, he’s got a small tear in his meniscus and some fluid behind his knee that physical therapy should hopefully clear up.

-You can find me dancing over in the corner knowing he doesn’t have to go through the worst-case option of surgery! Until I remember how much that stinking MRI cost.

-This off season has given me the chance to tweak and adjust several of my workflows before my wedding season starts. At the end of the day I am a pen and paper, list-making girl, so when I found the Haus of Layne blog planner, I was in heaven.

-One of my goals for this year of business was to find my tribe. I’ve had a blast meeting with some AMAZING local vendors here in town. I can’t wait to share more about all these lovely ladies!

-We spent the first weekend of spring break down in Evanston visiting my sister-in-law and her family. They’ve spent the last two years building their house and are so close to having it finished!

-My sister-in-law has shared a bathroom with her three children for over two years. She deserves an award.

-We ended up taking the kids to the Children’s Museum of Evansville. The kids had a blast running around exploring, with the Quack Factory water room being their favorite!

-Jon and I spent this week prepping to start Whole 30. Our fridge and pantry haven’t been this empty since we moved in! I think I will miss my best friend, cheese, the most.

-Easter weekend was spent in Crown Point with my family. Saturday was spent celebrating my nephew Sawyer’s third birthday. He is a rascally devil full of energy that I was able to coax into sneaking me a few sweet kisses. It still blows my mind that we all have children that are this old!

-The end of vacation ended with Easter Mass at my grandparents church, sweet snuggles with my baby nephew Gauge, and side-splitting laughter watching the new Jumanji movie. The original is one of my favorite movies! I really loved this updated take on it!
