Vlog: Stop and Smell the Roses Week 13

I'm excited to be linking up again today with the House of Rose for the weekly vlog on things that I'm thankful for and are making me smile!  I really enjoyed linking up last week and look forward to participating each week!

From my vlog:

We had a fast and relaxing weekend.  Highlights: Being with KT, beating last year's course record in a 10K, celebrating with my sister, playing with our sweet boys!

I've decided to make Blurb scrapbooks for our family each year.  I'm doing one for all of us and then individual books for each of the boys.  I couldn't decide if I wanted to do a calendar year, birthday to birthday, or school year.  For our family, I've decided on a calendar year and for the boys, I'm doing birthday to birthday.  I've finished our 2011 book, am up to date with Kaden's Year Three book (his birthday was in April), and I'm slowly but surely getting caught up on K.C.'s Fourth Year.  His birthday is in July and I'd like to have it to give to him.  We all like looking at pictures, so I thought this would be a great way for my non-crafty (although I want to be domestic!) self to keep up with our memories.

KT's Good Morning
KT had a busy, important morning at work and I got a text from him that everything was going well.  I am so thankful for that!  I wasn't worried about him at all because he does great with what he does and I'm so proud of him, but I knew he was nervous because it's not his favorite thing to have to do.  He's so dedicated to his work, to me, and to our family.  I'm blessed!  :)

Hair Appointment
My hair is horrible and I know it.  I've been too busy (really bad excuse) to go and my hair grows so fast (thankful for this!), but this is really out of control!  I'm trying a new salon tomorrow which makes me nervous and excited all at the same time!

If you haven't wore her dresses, you should.  They are so easy to wear and so comfortable.  You can wear them casually or dress them up.  KT gave me a few for Christmas and I bought a few.  I can't wait until her Summer line comes out Friday morning!

Date with My Little Guys

I picked up the boys last night and we went to Barnes and Noble.  K.C. has been asking for some new Berenstain Bear books (my favorite growing up.  I love that they love them!) so we went to buy some.  Tuesdays are always rushed because we have t-ball, so it was nice to get the evening started early.  

Beach Weekend
I'm looking forward to Memorial Day weekend!  We are going to the beach for an impromptu beach weekend.  We're also celebrating KT's niece's birthday Saturday and my mom's Monday!

I too am looking froward to Memorial Weekend!!! I am so excited to go camping and get a break from the every-day. So I am also loving that pic of your boys at the bottom because my kids adore BArnes and Noble. We make trips there all the time and buy many, MANY Berenstain Bear books. Love them!! Have a great weekend!

So many great things! I'm glad your family had a great weekend and I hope you enjoy the beach this weekend. I miss living in Charlotte- I was at Kiawah or Sullivan's Island constantly on summer weekends :) LOVE the dress! Going to Tracy's site now.

Yay for linking up with us again! :)
Well done on your 10k, you go girl! What an achievement! I also love the scrapbook ideas - they'll really grow to appreciate their blurb books when they're older! I wish my Momma had done something like that for me, and I intend to do something very similar with my children! :)

Have a great weekend, I too am headed to the beach and I couldn't be more excited! :)

I love your vlog! Hair appointments make me so nervous too! My hair is way to long and I just found my new salon, so I am super excited to finally get my hair cut!!!
Love your blog!

That is so exciting for KT's big morning at work! I still have my entire collection of Berenstien Bears books! They are stored away at my dad's house for when I have kids. Have fun on your beach weekend!

Hair appointments are just the best. And I think your hair is beautiful! :) I love Blurb books so much. They have great service and I just love them! And I adore Tracy Negoshian. My JL placement is Holiday Market and she comes to our show too, so I've gotten to know her a bit through that. She is just wonderful! Yay for a great morning for KT!

Awesome job on the 10k girl!! I have only done a 5k, but would love to work my way up to a 10k. You have amazing hair. For real! Jealous over here. Glad KT had a great morning! Thanks for linking up again! Really enjoying your vlogs!
