by the doctor’s order, i put my leg into the cold pool to ice it on saturday morning…when it was 46 degrees out. thank goodness for hot coffee.
they thought it was hilarious.
crosby and wyatt… i mean, batman and spiderman in the house.
a little game time before bed.
post-church lunch at rock & brews.
we celebrated jackson’s birthday with a chicago and airplane party. i had to sport my chicago shirt for the occasion.
i’m not sure when he got this old.
back at it on sunday evening. kenley was excited to take my picture again.
we had a much needed relaxing weekend. i spent most of the day on saturday cleaning out our kitchen and packing up boxes for donation, thanks to a simplified life. it was a perfect weekend to kick off the new year.
Happy Friday and happy April! Apparently I haven’t shared my loves in about a month (and I can’t even get them posted on the right day), so we have a lot to catch up on, let’s get started.

In the world of sports, college basketball and March Madness has come to an end. I am sad to see basketball go, but I am excited about the new regime at IU. UCF ended their season in the final four of the NIT tournament, so that was exciting! Unfortunately, we didn’t make it to any games this year, that’ll be a goal for next year. Greg is thoroughly excited that baseball is back. He also opted to sit out of fantasy baseball this year, so watching games has been more laid back than it has been in years. Let’s go Mets!
I don’t know why it took me so long to try coconut milk, but I’m obsessed. I’ve completely replaced my coffee creamer with it and I had it on my cereal this week. It’s delicious! My new drink at Starbucks is iced coffee with vanilla and coconut milk. I swear I’ve been talking about it all week. As far as dinners go, we’ve been having a lot of our usual favorites, but we are definitely adding these grilled shrimp tacos with avocado salsa in to the rotation. Yum!

We were late to the game with watching Moana, but Greg randomly brought it home a few weekends ago so we finally watched it. It is SO good! I think Greg and I may have liked it even more than the kids. We’ve also been listening to the soundtrack nonstop on Spotify, which is just as amazing as the movie. If you haven’t seen or listened to it, I highly recommend it. We also saw the new live action Beauty and the Beast the day before we left on the cruise. It was also really good!
we headed to jacksonville on friday afternoon. it was our first time in the city. we checked in to our hotel and walked over to jacksonville landing for dinner.
after a super early morning on saturday which included crosby throwing up several times, i reluctantly headed down to everbank field for the start of the gate river run 15k. greg stayed back with the kids and watched a movie in the hotel room since crosby was under the weather. more to come on the race.
we checked out of the hotel with the hopes of stopping in st. augustine since crosby seemed to be feeling better. we ended up turning around to head home.
she insisted on putting on her whole soccer outfit for about ten minutes of practice. she’s funny.
thankfully, he was feeling better so we headed out to dinner. face painting…on his arm.
we headed to a new park today to meet up with friends.
