Some Catch-Up

Hello Ladies!
Last week our modem started acting up, and well the earliest someone was able o come out was about annoying!
Hope you are all having a great week so far!
I don't know about you guys, but this time of year is always so crazy, busy for us.  The school year is wrapping up, so the kids have summer on the brain!  We are full swing in baseball, we have those dreaded EOG's coming up, field trips, field days, class parties, promotion ceremonies, and then just our day to day stuff!  June 11 can't come soon enough!
This past weekend was a TON of fun!  On Friday, Olivia woke up super excited that it was Friday, and that her dad was coming to town!
She is just precious!
After I got the kiddos off to school, I spent the morning eating Hostess cupcakes, drinking Pepsi, and catching up on the Kardashians.
All guilty pleasures...and all equally fabulous!
Around noon I decided it was time to get dressed and start my day, however I would have much preferred to stay on the couch, in my pajamas!
I bought this shirt from Target a few weeks ago, and girls it is seriously fabulous, and it's only 24.00!
After dinner my ex-husband arrived, and we spent the rest of the night just hanging out on the deck, playing with the kids!
AJ had a tournament on Saturday, and I am always so happy when their dad can be here to watch them play.  AJ is a terrific little athlete, and this boy did NOT disappoint Saturday.  He pitched the entire game, and was on point all day long.  Definitely the best pitching I have ever seen him do!

It was a GREAT afternoon of baseball for sure!
The NASCAR All-Star race was here this past weekend, and it is probably one of my favorite days of the year.  I am not a huge race fan, but I really enjoy this race and all the fun that comes along with it.  So many people come into Charlotte each year for this race, and we have been fortunate enough to meet some really great people, that we look forward to seeing year after year.  A few years back we met up with some police officers from Virginia, there is about 10 of them that come down every single year, set up camp in the same spot, and they are super fun to be around....they are probably our favorites each year! 
My husband is a service writer and handles all the NASCAR accounts...he loves his job, and I love all the perks that come along with it!  We had the best time being right on Pit Row, smack dab in the center of all the action.  it really is so great to be down there with the drivers, their families, and their crews.  Though I have seen it a million times, I am truly amazed how quickly they change the tires on the race is insane!
I am in serious awe of how quick they do this!

After about 40 laps we decided to head back over to the tiki bar, our police officer friends set up the most fun little tiki bar ever!!!

Every year they spend their first day there setting up "shop" is such a good time!
I was having a TON of fun, the drinks were delicious and my hubby thought us throwing back shots of fireball was a fantastic idea..I really thought I was a rock star staying up until 4am drinking and dancing the night away!  Well here it is Wednesday night and I am still trying to recover...ha!  Though it has ben a "rough" week, it was so great to be out with my husband, get out of "mom" mode, and just have some fun!
This weekend we are headed back to the race track for another fun-filled weekend...we are bringing the little kids with us, so it will definitely be more low-key...but no doubt just as fun!
Thank you all so much for everyone who emailed me checking in on me this week, I am so thankful to all of you who take the time each day to read what I have to say.
Be sure to check back tomorrow for Friday Favorites!



  1. I wondered where you were! So thanks for the update!! The busy time of year is almost over - right?

  2. It would take me just as long to recover. We had our last day of school yesterday, and it is so nice to relax this morning! Glad that you're back!

    1. So jealous you are done with school Brooke! I can't wait to shut off my alarm for the summer !

  3. Glad the modem is up and running... we are so technology dependent... maybe we should "unplug" every now and again. Very glad that you and your ex are on good terms - it's hard when changes occur in our lives...Have a good holiday weekend

    1. Hi Laurie! It is nice to just "unplug" for a bit! I'm very thankful for the relationship my exhusband and I still have. We love our kids, and they need us to be there to parent them and it's a heck of a lot easier when you just get along. Have a great holiday weekend

  4. So what is a service writer?
