The Perfect Tuesday

This week I had a near-perfect day. My husband was off work on Tuesday and it went like this:

6:30am~Ryan slips out of bed when Holden wakes up and together they go to Home Depot to buy some yardwork supplies.

8am~I am still sleeping (woohoo!) when Ryan, upon his return, wakes me to see if I want to go to IHOP for breakfast. Does he even have to ask??

8:30am~Harvest Nut Pancakes with blueberries and bananas with scrambled eggs and coffee.

9:45am~Leave the house (without the children!) to meet up with my long-time best friend of 13 years to go see the Titanic exhibit at the Georgia Aquarium.

2:30pm~Late lunch at Taqueria del Sol. So delicious!

4pm~Arrive back home to a beautiful yard, husband working away, and a dozen red roses waiting inside for me! Clean out Ryan's car (and I mean ArmorAll, Windex, and pulling out the Dyson to vacuum).
Aside: This may not sound like fun, but I really love organizing and the sense of accomplishment that follows!

5pm~So much fun with the family. One of those moments that you consciously try to etch into your brain for safekeeping. Boys laughing and hugging and playing.

6:30pm~Boys to bed, then Ryan and I order Buffalo's (they deliver!) and spend a quiet evening at home together.

Ahhhh....I just needed to document this perfect day.

Before & After

There are very few things that I love more than a great Before/After shot!! I have actually been wanting to do a before and after post with some of my makeups, then saw tonight that the theme for IHeartFaces this week is...(you guessed it)...Before & After! Of course so many makeups came to mind, but we had a bit of a milestone at our house this week that deserves it's own post. Turner's haircut. So this is a 2-in-1 Before and After. First you can see the haircut difference, but also a difference in the quality of the shot.
While I truly loved the locks, it is so great to see those expressive eyes all the time now! I can't stop kissing his forehead. So while I will probably grow it back out, I am SO enjoying this phase!

Oh and be watching for my makeup before and after post soon!
