2. What I'm reminiscing about...
Molly girl being a tiny pup!! I cannot believe she turned FIVE on Monday. You can see a little post about her HERE.

3. What I'm loving... 
Holy heart eye emojis. This girl in a UGA shirt. I DIE. We only have 38 days to get her "Go Dawgs" (or at least woof woof) perfected!!

4. What we've been up to...
Petting pups at the car wash...

Sitting in a high chair at a restaurant for the first time.. 

Looking like a teenager with her "iPod".. 

Going to church up in the clouds.. 

And snackin on puffs in Target..

5. What I'm dreading... 
This guy leaving us for 6 days on a business trip next week! It's tough stuff doing life without him!!

6. What I'm working on...
Oh this baby has my number!!! She will scream bloody murder and then start giggling the second I walk in her room. So we are working on going from this little mischievous grin...

To this peaceful slumber.. without so many tears from the both of us! 

7. What I'm excited about...
Age and I FINALLY got a date night!! And it sure did the soul some good!

Complete with yummy drinks (and an uber driver).. 

And fancy food.. and uninterrupted really, really special time with my man :) 

8. What I'm watching/reading...
After way too many tries, I FINALLY got into this book.. And after two chapters, I was hooked. Such a good read! It's not completely predictable like 99% of the books I tend to read, ha!

Right now I am currently reading Mary Kay Andrew's most recent book. As usual, it's a winner. Such an easy, breezy read. (Side note: was texting Amanda and of course she is reading this book right now too #becausewearethesameperson)

And while I was texting her, I told her we HAVE to read this together ASAP. (Like we have been planning to do since Christmas..) Y'all Jen Hatmaker is my jam. She is my spirit animal. She keeps it real. No fluff, no pretending to be perfect. She just loves Jesus (and probably cusses a little too..) Go follow her on Facebook right now for some daily laughs and encouragement. 

9. What I'm listening to...
This laugh. Oh be still my heart. I could listen to that little giggle all day, every day!!

10. What I'm wearing...

And more stripes.. 

And fall booties in the middle of summer. #becauseidowhatiwant

11. What I'm doing this weekend... 
We spent pretty much all last weekend inside because of the awful fires in LA. (We definitely didn't want to risk it with Maddie's previous respiratory infections..) The fire is about 25 miles from us and this is what it looked like in the middle of the day Saturday!! (Those aren't clouds, that's ALL smoke and soot!) So we are hoping and praying for those firefighters to get it all contained, so we can be outside this weekend!

12. What I'm looking forward to next month... 
My bestie is coming to LA!!! She will be here next Thursday to see me Maddie Jane while AJ is on his business trip. So thankful for this sweet friend of mine, who not only comes to visit often, but plans her trips strategically to help this Mama out!!
