If you follow me on instagram you saw this last night. If not you can go HERE and find me ltcordle.

I am so glad that tomorrow is Friday short weeks are the best. I have a ton of stuff going on next week so last night I decided to do nothing. I ran 1 errand after work, washed a load of clothes and when B came in heated up his left overs and washed the dishes. Other than that I was laying in my hammock relaxing and reading... it was perfect. Wish I could do that every night. 

What do you do to relax?

The Weekend and My Birthday

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. My was great especially since it was my Birthday weekend.  Another year older don't know where the time went but man I must be getting old (haha)!
Friday they let us off early and I went to get some flowers... finally. I still need to go get some more but hey it's a start.

I decided to go by Mama's house afterwards since she had Mason. Lindsey & McK were already there and Lindsey had gone to get them all Sonic. Mason got his own but I guess he liked the big one better.

Grammy reading to him. He still loves his books.

Our serious faces lol he was really paying attention.

Saturday morning while I was cleaning Toby was trying to attack shadows again... silly cat.

then it was time to nap again (for him anyway)


Sunday was my Birthday. I got up and went to church to hear my sister speak about her Haiti trip (she did so good). Then came home and did a few things outside before we had to get ready for my birthday dinner with my family at our favorite restaurant.

I am so lucky to have such a wonderful family!

LOVE my new necklace!

Bryan had already bought my birthday present about a month ago but he still ended up getting me a card, roses and 2 baskets of flowers for outside. It was so sweet. He also spent the weekend cutting grass and pressure washing the house. The pollen was so bad this year EVERYTHING outside was yellow. I have allergies and I could not even go out there with it that bad. THANK YOU B!

Sweet BoBo

Toby (can't you tell he thinks he run things)

Out for a ride.


B working hard outside

Bryan is not home that often and when he is he doesn't get in usually until late. So dinner for him is really late (like usually 9 or after) and since we don't know the time it's just quick food. Since we were both home we finally had a quiet dinner together. I can't even tell you the last time that happened. It was so nice. That is one of the things I really miss. 

After all Bryan's hard work !
I love that I can finally relax outside when I get home at night now! Nothing better than a book and my hammock (which is going back up tomorrow). I still need to go get some flowers but hey this is so much better!
How was your weekend?

Girls Day

Hey everyone it has been a crazy week around here. Yesterday my Mom and I had appointments out of town so we made a day of it. It was perfect timing too since Mama's birthday was the 12th and mine is this Sunday (yay for a long birthday/holiday weekend).
We started off getting our Free Birthday drinks at Starbucks.

Went to our appointments.
We had lunch at Olive Garden - Below is the free appetizer we got for my birthday. So good!

Mama and I always split the Cheese Ravioli when we go.

We had never been to that Olive Garden before and these were on both sides of the steps walking up to go in and I just thought they were pretty.
We went by Kohls of course and as usual they had amazing sales. Then headed to a few other stores.
Dinner was yummy:) Vanilla & Cake batter so good!
We were going to stop by my sisters on the way home so we took a different way and it is just beautiful around there.

Favorite guy in the world! Mason he is just to precious for words. (playing with his new bat and ball Grammy picked up for him while we were gone).

Grammy showing Mason how to hit the ball.

This is this years Birthday gift at Sephora. Love free stuff!

I did get a new skirt and dress while we were gone. The skirt was $30 got it for $10

The dress was $25 but was on sale and with my Viggle points I got it for about $3.00! Plus it is color unlike most of my clothes (I usually stick with black or grey). 
Can't wait for a long weekend!

This is the random everyday of my life. I live in a small town in VA with the husband and 2 furbabbies (Bo the dog and Toby the cat). I love makeup, reading, country music, Scentsy pinterest, blogging, and spending time with my family.
