Life Lately

Hello Girls!
Hope you are all having a great week!  Now that school is back in session, I am once again always looking forward to the weekend!
Life lately has been pretty low key around here, and it has been nice!  Our summer was cut a bit short with Olivia starting back to school last week, and this is the first summer that we did not take a family vacation.  We usually always go to Michigan, but with Olivia's school schedule, and Mark just starting his new job and not having vacation time, it just wasn't in the cards for us this summer.  We do have a beach trip planned for 4 days over Labor Day Weekend, that we are super excited about...and my mom is coming to town and will be joining us!  It will be nice to just hang out with family, and just enjoy each other!
So I am pretty sure Jack and AJ need this shirt.  My boys are literally up all night and sleeping until mid afternoon.  It is CRAZY!!!  That has been their life lately!  They start back to school August 10, so getting them back on schedule should be FUN!  
These 3 have spent lots of late nights on the couch watching Ridiculousness....with all the awfulness going on in the world these days, it makes me happy to hear them just laughing at a silly TV show.
We spent a solid 2 weeks watching Christmas movies on the Hallmark Mystery and Movies Channel and the Hallmark channel...and Olivia was totally onboard, even busting out her holiday jammies from last year!
The Shopkins obsession is still STRONG over here...and I find them everywhere!!!  I wish I had invented these little things!
These two have been spending every night cuddled up next to each truly just makes me so happy to see their incredible bond get stronger by the day!

And there has been lots of wrestling going on between Mark and AJ.
It has been HOT here, but I still love going out back each morning and drinking my coffee, just looking at the water, and every night we go out back and watch the sun go down, and every single night it is beautiful and I never ever get tired of the amazing view I have right in my backyard. 
We have been spending our weekends just kind of hanging out, getting some things done around the house.  The downtime has been so nice!  Once the boys start back in school, and the fall months roll around (Mark's busy season at work), life gets super crazy, so it is nice to just enjoy the slow times!
The kids are super excited that next week their dad is flying into town for a few days, they are all looking forward to getting to spend some time with him!
So pretty much that has been life lately over here!  Be sure to check back tomorrow, I will be sharing with you guys what I have snagged so far from the Anniversary Sale, and what is still sitting in my bag!  Can't wait to hear what everyone else got! 
Have a great day!
