Today is Caroline's last day at MDO for this school year and I think I am going to be the one crying...it's amazing to see how much my big girl has grown this year and I can't thank her sweet teachers enough for all they have done. I have been so impressed with how much she has learned, her vocabulary has increased tenfold, and her social skills with other children has really helped the transition with baby sister, too. We sure will miss Mrs. Carla and Mrs. Lisa this summer! So, for a sweet little surprise for them, we are gifting them with these adorable "Thanks a Latte" cards and homemade Cream Cheese Banana Nut Bread loaves... nothing too fancy, but just to say how much we appreciate everything they have done for CC this year.
Two. Sweet Snack Time
Looking for a yummy snack that satisfies that afternoon craving for sweetness?? I've recently gotten into the habit of having two rice cakes topped with peanut butter and it's my new favorite go-to! The rice cakes are low in calories and the peanut butter has a good amount of protein, so it's a win win. Top it with a few choc chips and it sounds like dessert to me.
Three. Packing Nonsense
I despise--revise that loathe--packing in every sense of the word. Having to do all the laundry, packing, organizing, and making sure not to forget one single thing gives me major anxiety, and now that I am packing for four, it makes it even more troublesome when we are going on a trip. Thankfully, I found a really helpful printable (yes, I know another dang printable) but it really helps keep me on track and not overpacking for the babies...and yes, me too.
Four. Baby on the Way
There is something in the water right now...my FB and IG feeds are popping up with baby announcements everywhere and nothing gives me greater joy than to see friends (real life and social media world) sharing their good news! Just in my close group of friends, we have 3 friends expecting little ones and I can FINALLY make note that my best friend Bev is going to have a baby!!! Thank gosh I don't have to keep that secret any longer, considering I'm horrible at it.
She is wonderful aunt to her two nieces, a great honorary aunt to my girls, and she is going to make a fantastic mommy of her own sweet one. And Bev, just go ahead and get ready...I'm already finding everything I can to shower Baby Miller with giraffes galore!! ;)
Five. Hello! Vacation
I have been counting down for months and now it's here...it's time for our annual family fun vacation to Rosemary Beach and tomorrow can't come soon enough. Sun, sand, and sea is calling my name and I am so excited for some much needed R&R, especially with the hubby who has been travelling non-stop as of late. Cheers to a happy, sunshine-filled week in my favorite place with my very favorite people.
