It was a nice week at our house. Not too busy, not too boring. We had friends over, planned some fun things to do, had some appointments and Kevin is wrapping up finals week. We're all excited for the slower pace and more open schedule that summer will bring our way.
The best parts of our week were...

I'm excited for the Kentucky Derby this weekend and have big plans to make a Derby Pie and drink a yummy cocktail that Kevin comes up with. Do you watch the Derby or have any fun Derby traditions?? I love watching it and seeing all of the big hats. Maybe I'll wear a big hat and eat my treats from the comforts of my couch :) Kevin says he's got some surprises in the works for the weekend so it should be a great Derby/Mother's Day weekend.

I shared before pictures of our house this week and am thrilled to report that the walls are now a gorgeous shade of gray that really updates the space, the floors are looking better with a new finish and our front door got an update. I'm happy that I went with bold color for the door and it looks GREAT! The boys in the family weren't so sure about my idea, but we all agree that the bold door looks nice on the house. I love how it's coming together!! The kids and I stop by to check on the progress, but can't take any credit for the work being done. Thanks, Dad!!

I'm not a spontaneous person so I was proud of myself for accepting a last minute invitation to play. (Remember how my word of the year is INVITE... well sometimes that means going out of my comfort zone to say YES when I want to stay in my pjs :) We rushed to get ready in the morning, loaded ourselves up and hurried to meet up with our friends. I opted to wear Fletcher in the Ergo so he could sleep and then pushed Olive in her stroller. We got to visit with friends we haven't seen in a few weeks and then park our strollers and play for a bit. It was so nice to get some fresh air and both have time with our friends.
The sidewalk chalk was a big hit as always and then Olive discovered a new toy - the BALANCE BIKE. Have you heard of these before?? They don't have pedals and the kids balance and glide on them. If you have one - what brand do you recommend or where did you buy yours?? She's requesting a purple bike with a purple helmet so we are starting to research them.

We spent some time at the vet's office again this week and are crossing our fingers that our kitty is getting better. He seems to be acting better after his overnight stay so we're hopeful. It was like a petting zoo when we were there with cats, dogs and brand new kittens galore and the ladies in the office are always so sweet to the kids. Olive was in heaven and I appreciated everyone being so good with her. Sherman the 3 legged cat was very interested in Fletcher and Olive tried to convince me we needed a third cat.

Fletcher turned one month old! He rolled over for the first time (and no one saw it... poor 2nd kiddo), has learned how to smile and is still the snuggliest baby around. He's outgrowing his 0-3 month things and I just washed all of his 3 month clothes. Can't believe how fast he's growing. We sure do love this little man!
My Favorite Posts of the Week:
I hope you have a really great weekend and that you get to celebrate the special ladies in your lives for Mother's Day weekend. We're sticking close to home and I'm hoping to find a way to get a long Mother's Day NAP :)
