scenes from the week


4th of July weekend.
25 weeks pregnant.
Got to practice my French braid skills on the adorable kiddos (hubby’s cousin’s kids)


More cookouts.
Continuing to work my way through all the Hint Water flavors they sent me (freebie).
I’m not usually a fizzy water lover but I’ve been enjoying these, especially blackberry and strawberry kiwi.
Makes me feel fancy when everyone else drinks their booze.
Marcus snuggles.


Hubby & I did a lot of walking with the dogs.
Marcus did a lot of sleeping :)


Animal lovin’


Happy Things.
My order of A Loving Spoon Honey Vanilla Bourbon PB arriving!
