Happy Friday all! So glad it is here!

A few things to share today, so the post is a little long, but there is some extra FUN at the end, so don’t miss out!

And we’re ready for some FUN around here because Stephen’s spring break starts today! WOOHOO!!! So excited for a week with him home – lots of FUN things planned!


Last weekend we met up with a fellow med school mommy & her kiddos and Stephen’s parents for a FUN day at the zoo!

Yes, you may see a little snow on the ground, but it was warmer than it had been in a LONG time and it was so wonderful to be outside. And when the wind did pick up, there were lots of great indoor exhibits to warm up in!

Big J calls this the “Big Zoo” and I would agree! Not enough energy in those boys (or this mommy) to get through everything in one day – as evidenced by Big J asking to ride in the stroller and then falling asleep!

Little J was more than happy to go for a walk while big brother snoozed, whether with Grandma Mo or Daddy once he joined us after studying!

If you couldn’t tell, penguins are a favorite in our house and we all got to pet one! So FUN!!!

It was a whole day of FUN and FAMILY and we were so happy to get to spend time with Grandma and Grandpa Mo – thanks for making the drive!

And thanks to Natalie and her kiddos for a yummy breakfast and FUN friends to hang out with! Glad we’re in this med school thing together 🙂


To add to the FAMILY part, Grandma and Grandpa Mac are headed our way today to spend the weekend with us! So glad both sets of grandparents aren’t too far away to make these quick trips either way! Should be a FAMILY FUN weekend!


And finally the FOOD!

My friend Stephanie is a Tastefully Simple Senior Consultant and I think I have gained a few pounds off of this product from her alone…

Oh, the possibilities with a beer bread mix in the house…mmmmm….
