RIP Favorite Jeans

Today was a sad day for me, one of my favorite pairs of jeans have seen their last day. They were a good pair of jeans, that took a full two years to break in. I am officially going to have to head out to go jean shopping, which I do not like at all. To get over my loss, we took a walk to buy the best blood orange gelato! It was the perfect treat to get over my tragic jean day and it also made my sore throat feel loads better.
By the way in case you have not guess this is not an actual photo of myself in the now retired jeans. However if my legs did look like this in my jeans, there would be many more postings of myself!

This may be one of the best summer treats there is! Try it you will love it!

A Night With Lex

On Saturday night Alexa and I found ourselves with some mom and daughter time on our hands because Nick had some games to ref. I was feeling a little conflicted early on in the night, because all of the girls from work that I love were out and about, including my previous boss who is most amazing. I was feeling a little down about being stuck at home, when I realized I was not stuck anywhere, I love my nights in with Lex. We did not do anything out of the usual for us, nothing exciting, just our same old fall back ideas.

Alexa spent some time look for the space station. She is much better than me at finding it, so I leave the leg work up to her. She is always nice enough to point it out for me, so that I am able to take a peek!

We mixed up a batch of chocolate cupcakes, with chocolate chips and chocolate fudge frosting (of course).
While the cupckaes were baking we ran out to pick up a glass of the best lemonade ever! Its from Pita Jungle in case you wanted to purchase yourself a glass.
With our snacks and our lemonade, we settled in to watch Alexa's current fav of a movie. I may have missed my dinner out with the girls, but I was able to spend a night in with my favorite one.

Just A Thought

" Gratefulness is the key to a happy life that we hold in our hands, because if we are not grateful, then no matter how much we have we will not be happy -- because we will always want to have something else or something more. "

I was searching the Internet trying to get a little homework done, when I came across this quote. I thought it was so interesting, that I wanted to share it. We live in a society of see it, want it, buy it, but what happiness do those things really bring us. The more I thought about it the more I realized how the things that we should place value on, are not the things that we fill our homes with, it is who we fill our lives with.
