A Beautiful weekend!

















Wow! this weekend was awesome! Todd and I have been on the go so much we forgot what it was like to spend a weekend at home just hanging out! Friday night we had a date night and had dinner at the Mustard Seed, it was so yummy :) If you are ever in Charleston you have to go there. Saturday I slept in until 10:00 I know Holy Batman that is really late, but it was so nice! I love my husband :) So when I finally rolled out of the bed, we played outside, cooked pizza, and watched TV while Carson napped. When he got up we headed to our neighbors house for some cocktails, apps, and corn hole! It was so funny because we all brought our kids and the 4 boys that were there were all born within weeks from each other I cant wait to see what trouble they will get into when they get bigger! Thanks Ann and Jason for having us over! Sunday was just as relaxing, we stayed in our PJ's until @ 12:00 and played outside some more! Carson is a big fan of outside these days :) Its going to be a fun summer :)

Reading with mommy




Carson has really started loving his books lately. I will hear him sometimes in is playroom just chatting away, and when I peek to see what he is doing he has a book open and just flipping through the pages. It is so fun to watch :) He really prefers me to read to him, and I love that snuggle time we get, so its a win win!

Keeping a clean house



Show us your life...........
Cleaning Tips!


Ok here are some tips I have for you guys! Let me just throw this out here since this is my blog and I want to be honest! The best thing that I ever did was get a cleaning lady she comes every two weeks and cleans to the max every time. I know that we are all on a budget, so am I! I just think that it is worth it in the end, if you can squeeze it in somehow! It makes my life easy and puts a big smile on my face. Now with that being said I have a 1yr old so I also have to clean, straighten and organize all week long :) I think that the biggest thing to feeling like your house is clean is to organize. So my advice is to declutter, declutter, and declutter some more! If you don't use it throw it away, I promise you will feel better when you do! Always wipe down the kitchen counter and keep a basket in your kitchen for keys, wallets, cell phone ect..... this always keeps things from getting messy! I hope this helps! If you have any questions on organizing shoot me a comment and i will email you back with great tips for every room!

Wow! What a weekend! Everything was perfect the bride, the weather, the flowers, the food, and mostly the friends! I know you have heard me talk about Elizabeth on here before, but incase you are new she is my very best friend in the world, and Carsons Godmother.
