A Day on the Water

First off if you have not entered to win the Stella & Dot, Julep and EOS GIVEAWAY  you can HERE.
Sunday we left home about 10 to go to Suffolk for my father in laws Birthday. We don't see them all that often since it is over a 2 hour drive and everyone is always so busy. We met B's parents, his sister, brother in law and my niece to spend the afternoon on the boat. I didn't even realize how much I missed being on a boat. When we were younger my grandparents had a place on the lake that we stayed at and spent time with our grandparents and cousins (the good ole days). Anyway here are the pics from the day.
Beth & Regan



Me, Peg and Beth

I love this one with Regan and Bryan

Time for a little fishing.

I know the picture below is not clear so sorry. When we were leaving we turned the wrong way and had to turn around (so we did at a cemetery). On one of the posts out front was a peacock of course I had to have a picture but as soon as I got my phone out to take it what happens gets down and walks back and forth behind the bushes. Bryan of course things it is hilarious that it is hiding from me. 

Luckily we got got back before the storm came in. 
How was your weekend?

The week in pictures

To say this week has been busy and crazy is a serious understatement. Hopefully after tomorrow it will be a little more relaxing. I did manage to have a few fun things this week though here they are in pictures of course.
Toby claiming the Stella & Dot box as soon as I got my stuff out.

Monday after work I went to take care of Mason until Mama got off work. So of course that means lots of fun and lots of pictures.

He decided to help Grammy and water her flowers.

Me being silly (only for Mason would I do this).

Wednesday lunches at Mama's.
We all ate outside Mama had fixed Chef Boyardee Pizza and we had salads.
Mason was busy drinking his drink while chatting on the phone haha.

Mason & McKayla
Last night was relaxing finally. CMT Awards and a beer while laying in bed. Perfect!

How has your week been?

Weekend - This will always be home

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! Saturday was my cleaning day but it was still nice just being at home.

If you follow me on instagram you have probably already seen most of them. If not you can follow along #ltcordle
I did take some of my favorite quotes from Pinterest and put them in a frame beside my bed as a constant reminder.

Sunday I slept in (so needed). My sisters and I all headed to Mama's Sunday afternoon to put together her patio set she got and just hang out. Here are the pictures from the day.

It was a perfect day with my Mom, sisters and Mason. I am so blessed to have them in my life and to have grown up in such a beautiful place. Mama's will always be home. On days like yesterday playing in the yard with Mason not only does it bring back wonderful memories of when the 3 of us were little but knowing we are making new memories with him fills my heart with so much happiness, love and appreciation.

Even though sometimes I think I would love to move to a different small town I can't imagine missing days like this.

When I got home I just relaxed in the hammock for awhile and listened to music.

How was your weekend?
My photo
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.
