Kenley just finished her fall season of soccer on her first all-girl team. She played really well and scored two goals (in the same game!). She continues to show a lot of potential and played forward majority of the season. Since last year, she can successfully do a cartwheel and a handstand!
She had a crazy busy summer going to several different summer camps, including the UCF soccer camp, Double Down sports camp, golf camp, UGAMES church camp where she did karate, and gymnastics camp.
Second grade is off to a great start! The first nine weeks just wrapped up. I said the exact same thing last year, but I think we’re just now starting to get into our routine for the school year.
Happy birthday sweet girl! Looking forward to seeing what this year brings for you!
I headed up to Nashville at the end of June for a long overdue reunion with my girlfriends from Zeta. This was the first time in a very long time that we’ve gotten together for no reason other than to be together. No one was getting married or having a baby, but we did have a birthday to celebrate!
We had a leisurely lunch on Friday as friends started to get into town, then we headed to Nash Collection for hats so we could obviously fit in for the weekend. Someone even asked if I was a local because of my hat!
We spent the rest of the afternoon and into the evening at the hotel pool with yummy drinks in hand catching up with each other before heading out for dinner way later than intended.
Saturday, we celebrated Mandy’s birthday! We started with brunch at Saint Anejo in the Gulch before we moved on to shopping.
Uncommon James (Kristin Cavallari’s store) and Draper James (Reese Witherspoon’s store) were on the top of my list to visit while in Nashville. I loved both of them, though there were no celebrity sightings.
After shopping, we headed back to get on our pedaling bike bar. We drove our bike up and down Broadway and around the city for an hour. It was hot and hilly, but so much fun!
After a dip in the pool and a much needed shower, we got all fancied up for a night on the town. Our first stop was rooftop drinks before heading to dinner.
After an insane dinner at Kayne Prime, we headed out to Broadway for some country music and dancing!
We had such a fun night!
We all parted ways on Sunday, but before getting on the plane, I had to try a local beer.
We had such a fun weekend. The seven of us traveled from six different states to be there. It was so good to be reunited.
I’m already ready for my next trip to Nashville. The city is so much fun!

it was a busy april with games every weekend and lots of time with friends.
To kick off spring break, we headed up to Indiana for a long weekend. The weekend was full of family, friends, and celebrations before heading back home.
We were so thankful to see so many family members in such a short time, most of which made the trip to visit us.
On Saint Patrick’s Day, we ran the Shamrock Beer Run 5k in downtown Indy. It was our first beer run and probably our coldest run to date. It was freezing! Thankfully the beer stops helped us warm up. Downtown Indianapolis was absolutely beautiful on the brisk day.
We ended the day celebrating Grandma Sue’s 80th birthday! We had a lovely dinner with family to celebrate our special lady.
We also got to visit with several old friends and meet new little friends while we were there! Again, we were so thankful that everyone made room for us during their busy weekends.
One major highlight of the long weekend was the snow! Yes…in March…during spring break…the kids saw snow for the first time! They loved playing outside as the big snowflakes fell to the ground. It didn’t last long, but it was memorable.
We made one more quick stop to visit the birthday girl before heading to the airport.
We had a great, long weekend which was action packed. Needless to say, it took a bit for all of us to recover.
march was a busy month!
