Getting to know you & weekend ramblings

I had found this blog link up a while back but then it went on a hiatus and I'm excited it's back. I blog a lot about my kids & whatever adventure or activity we happen to be doing but don't say much about myself so this is an easy way to do that so here goes: 

1. If you won the title of miss america, what would your platform be?
Hmmm... I really have no idea? World Peace? Ha! 
2. Outdoorsy or indoorsy?
That entirely depends on where that outdoors is... if it's the beach yes totally outdoorsey. If you want me to go camping in the woods in a tent with no facilities then no thanks. Lately we've been very much about the outdoors around here spending every last minute we can outside enjoying the springtime weather before it gets super hot (and then we'll just switch the pool!)
3. Pajama's out in public..classy or tres tacky?
Pajamas in public? No thanks. I'll rock jeans & a t-shirt or gym wear but never pajamas. 
4. What's your favorite room in your house?
I guess probably the master bedroom. It's got my favorite rocking chair and where I spend my downtime after the kids go to sleep. 
5. Nook, kindle, or book?
I love the idea of then nook/kindle/ipad - especially the ease it would bring to reading in bed because I often have trouble getting comfortable reading a book in bed & turning the pages but I just can't give up the real deal yet.
6. Would you rather wear the same outfit for a week or not brush your teeth for a week?
Definitely the outfit for a week. 
7. What's your favorite blog at the moment?
I love Kelle Hampton's blog Enjoying the Small Things - I'm slightly jealous of them living so near the beach. 
8. Lately i've been daydreaming about.........?
Hmm... this evening -  a maid as I cleaned the kitchen, living room and folded laundry. Ha! 

And now back to to the kids and our weekend! We've had a pretty laid back weekend after the previous two busy weekends and yet I still somehow feel worn out this evening? Why is that? 

Almost every Saturday evening I work in the Church nursery during the evening service ( in the 3-12 month room getting my baby fix!) Grandma and Grandpa sometimes go to this service and sometimes go to Sunday morning (when I go) so we called Grandma to see which one she was going to go to because Abby really wanted to say hi. She decided to come yesterday evening and after the service she took us out to dinner. We went to Willie's which I have to say now ranks pretty high up as far as my favorite restaurants go. It was beautiful outside and we got a table near the big huge sandbox. The immediately took their shoes off and headed in only getting out to eat then right back in. It thankfully wasn't too busy at the restaurant and we stayed there sitting, chatting and enjoying the evening for 2 hours while the kids played. It was a little piece of heaven to just sit and relax and the kids enjoyed every second of it.

Can you see little Micah? Doesn't he just look adorable in his button down & plaid shorts? I think so! 
But the poor baby looks like he lost a fight. :( He got a bruise earlier in the week on his cheek (from where I don't know?) Then yesterday morning as we played outside, he was playing in some leaves piling them up and when he turned out to run after Abby I saw a big new scratch on that same cheek. He never made a peep about it either just kept playing. 
Abby spent quite a bit of time filling then dumping a bucket of sand. She was quite serious about this task as well then put on her cheesy smile when she saw I was taking her picture. It was so sweet to see her jumping in and playing with the other kids in the sandbox - she was making friends and playing games with them.  
Micah has been working so hard on trying to figure out how to jump lately. He just can't quite get both feet up at the same time yet. However he saw Abby jumping into the sandbox and he just had to try it. It was so cute and sweet to watch him trying his hardest to figure out how to get both feet to jump together. He's so close to getting it! The smile on his face about his jump was precious though! 
I hope ya'll have had a wonderful weekend as well! We've had a great spring break this week - it's going to be a jump back into reality for us to get up and get Abby to school tomorrow! When Beau told her she goes back to school tomorrow she was so excited though jumping up and down about it! Only in preschool (and maybe kinder) does school come with that much enthusiasm huh?

I love this post. It's so fun to learn about the people I read about! Speaking of reading, I had the same thoughts about an eReader that you do & I broke down & bought a Nook. IT'S AWESOME!!!! I LOVE IT!!
