oh, the joy!

Hi all!  I hope your Monday is off to a great start:)  We’ve got a busy week planned and are looking forward to the Easter weekend.  Here’s a glimpse into what our weekends are lookin’ like these days!   DSC_0456 We were at a friend’s house in the above photo, but James had so much fun in that little tub that Jimmy and I got him a small inflatable pool this weekend for our backyard.  Houston gets hot early so the sunscreen is out in full force, but I wish I could get James to keep his sunhat on- but he always pulls it right off! ********* If you missed it, there’s still time to enter to win a $200 shopping spree to Joss & Main.  Go HERE to enter. ********** My sponsor Julie {Etsy Stalkers} is asking for votes to become an editor for Hopscout, a daily deal site that features old-school kid’s products.  In order to get to the next round, she had to make a video, put it on facebook and be in the top 20 votes.  If you’d like to check it out and vote for her, go HERE🙂  The voting ends Friday. ********** Check me out today sharing my 5 Spring Must Haves for Mommy at The Cool Kids blog:) image And last Friday, the sweet gals over at Cupcake MAG were kind enough to include me in their series of interviews.  You can check out my answers to their thoughtful questions here. image ************** p.s.  If you want to receive my posts via email, I just added that feature.  It’s on my right sidebar:)

Let's be friends!

    Oh, that is too cute!! I love to see babies in wading pools. We have a pool just down the street from us…about a block away. I need to pay our dues soon so we can enjoy it this summer! 🙂

    Awww he is adorable and looks like he's having a ball! Sounds like summer has already started in Houston! My hubby is from Houston so I've heard all about the warm humid weather 🙂 Congrats on CupcakeMag! 🙂

    Oh!! He is so so cute. I love that picture. We still have a little water table that both kids LOVE to play with. We bust it out all the time. I can picture you sipping a margarita by your blow up pool! 😉
