Looking Backwards

This week has flown right by because of how busy we've been...which is good. Y'all won't believe this but I COOKED 3 times this week. I'm going to try to keep that up...maybe even go a step better than that. We shall see.

I found these old pictures of my Lucas and had to share!

{I promise I am not responsible for this was some of Jon's friends.}

{How could you NOT love this baby here? Man he was cute...IS cute!}

{No. I wasn't wearing any makeup but can we discuss how long his hair was?}

{This has always been one of my favorites!}

I can't wait to see how much Braxton looks like Lucas as he grows!

Have a great weekend!!

Yippee...'s the WEEKEND!! After a stressful week (a short one at that) I can say that I am absolutely thrilled to be walking out of this office in just a short bit! The weekend is looking like it holds only great things in store for me. Of course, maybe that's wishful thinking.

Tonight my MIL in keeping Braxton while Jon & Lucas take in a Rangers game. I am going to have dinner with two of my girlfriends, April & Kindra (Chelley, you will be missed!!!) and I plan to enjoy it to the fullest! We aren't going far, just up the road to the Outback Steakhouse but that is good enough for me.

Saturday we have no real plans...hallelujah! I do have to make a grocery store run and I do think that we are having some family over to cook some of the yummy fish that Jon caught this summer. I think the kids (and this mommy) will try to get in a little bit of pool time too. Is it not sad we spent all of that money to put a pool into our back yard only for me to swim in it less than 5 times this summer...that is no lie!! Shame!

Sunday afternoon Jon says that he will not be moving from his spot on the couch so that he can take in all that the NFL has to offer! He is such a guy. Little does he know that I am going to try to sneak away and leave the boys with him and take in a movie. I have no idea what I'm going to go see and I have no idea if anyone is going with me but I fully intend to sit in the darkness, peace & quiet and relax!! Gosh I hope that something good is showing. Here is a small Texas fact: the best pickles are at movie theaters in our state! When Jon & I lived all over the country working and we would go to the movies, I would be so sorely disappointed to find that there were ZERO pickles. Some of yall may think I've lost my mind but this is my favorite movie treat...forget the dang popcorn and give me the pickle!!

I hope yall have a great one too!

Knoxville Trip

Today has been one of those days that I would just like to fast forward right on through. It's been chaotic, stressful, blah, enlightening and many more. I am so excited to get out of this office in a few minutes and let my two sweet boys take my cares away!

I thought I would share a few pictures from our short Labor Day trip to Knoxville, TN to visit Ryan, Ashley & Brooklynn (my brother, SIL & beautiful baby niece)! It went by WAY too fast but we had a ball.

{Ryan & Braxton. He ADORES my boys!}

{My cousin Lee teaching Lucas how to wake board & wake surf.}
{I had to share this since B looks like he was blindsighted by Brooklynn!}

{Braxton & Brooklynn...aren't they sweet?}

{Lucas & his daddy getting ready to RACE!!}

{At the aquarium...apparently I shouldn't wear ponytails...makes me look even bigger!}

{Brooklynn...isn't she a doll?}

{The only thing I'm missing is my Braxton!}

{Waiting for Bubba & Daddy to stop racing!}

That's all I have to give you today! I'm going to try again tomorrow and see if I can be 3 for 3!!

Where I've been

It just really doesn't matter how much I promise to be a better blogger, it just never works. I'm going to stop promising things that I know full well that I can't deliver on! It has been a crazy few months in Seymore Land! I feel as though we have been blowing non-stop.

Since you've last heard from me (if anyone is out there that is!!), here are the highlights of what we've been doing:

1. I celebrated my 31st birthday.
2. We went on summer vacation to Surfside Beach so Jon could fish & we could relax.
3. We celebrated Lucas' 7th birthday. Man do I feel old!
4. We celebrated our 8th wedding feels more like the 15 years that we've been together but you get the point!
5. We celebrated Jon's 34th I don't feel quite that old!!
6. I have worked non-stop it feels like.
7. We have endured unreasonably high temperatures outside, causing us to have zero energy for activities!
8. We have taken a small rest from Lucas' baseball games but have had practices weekly anyway.
9. We have put Braxton into daycare and out of nanny care. It's been a good move so far!
10. We have started Lucas back to school...2nd grade...look out!

Whew! I'm tired just typing about it!

{Transformers cake...again! They did a great job on it.}

See y'all next time! Hopefully sooner than later!
