A Very Fun FunRun!

This morning was the much anticipated Boosterthon Fun Run at Lane's school. For about a week we have been gathering sponsors to make pledges for Lane!

The course was set,

and the runners were ready!

Doing a little pre run dancing and stretching!



Lane had a 35 lap goal, and even though he wasn't feeling all that great this morning, he managed to hit his goal! 

Levi and I cheered on our favorite runner and gave lots of high fives!

Doing laps with his buddy.

We got to walk the cool down lap with him!

Way to go big boy!!
I loved this fundraiser better than selling anything! There was loud music and lots of energy from the staff! All the kids had a blast! Such a fun way to get the kids out and running!!

Wednesday Randoms

Not a whole lot going on over here in our neck of the woods! We are knee deep in sports, school, and all that fun! Seeing how I haven't posted in a bit I though I'd check in with my
  Wednesday Randoms....

A little back story here, since we haven't graced our boys with a real dog (yet), Lane has three stuffed dogs that he treats like real ones! So yesterday morning, when I came to get him up for school I found this....

Lane had gotten up sometime after we put him to bed, and wrote this letter to Fletch, his dog! Completely on his the bathroom for light!! In case you need some help it says "Happy birthday Fletch. I am happy because now you're two years old and have a great birthday!" And he even dated it!! Something my sixth and seventh graders forgot to do!! Super impressed buddy!! I found this to be precious and sweet!!

Awhile back I found a super cute desktop organizer background on Pinterest! I loved it, however, I got a little bored with it, ha! After wasting an unsaid about of time on Pinterest looking for another one, that was equally as cute of course, with no luck, I decided to make my own! LOVE how it turned out!

I posted this on Instagram last night! These two are quite the buddies these days!!

I found this on Instagram this morning and I want this shirt badly!

This past Saturday was opening weekend for Spring soccer. We moved Lane up to U7, which means new team,  bigger field, goalie, and bigger boys! He did great and we are so proud of him. I just love watching this little competitor play!!

We are exactly ONE WEEK away from being here!!! I am SO ready to get on this beach!!!

Well that's it for now! Hope you all have a fabulous Wednesday!!!

{30 Book Challenge} 4th Book Review

Sometime last year I began reading Melanie Shankle's blog BigMama. She is a native Texas blogger and she is hilarious, down to Earth, honest, and did I mention hilarious!?!
When her first book came out, Sparkly Green Earrings, I was so excited to read it. And it did not disappoint! It's all about motherhood and it was a funny, light read!

So when her second book came out, earlier this month, it was a no brainier to buy! 

This book is all about marriage! Her stories are all so relate-able, and so funny! I laughed all the way through the first couple of chapters, to the point I had tears in my eyes and could barley see the words! It was so funny! The ones about the wedding and honeymoon are classic! 

If you haven't read these two books, please add them to your list! They are super quick reads that will make you laugh and cry!! Five stars for sure!!

Celebrating Daddy & 100 Days of School

Wednesday was Paul's 32nd birthday!! It was also, thanks to a very unnecessary day ice day the day before, was Lane's 100th day of school!! So we started the morning with a little 100 day fun, and the candles were fitting for daddy's birthday as well!!

Later that evening I had a few things waiting for Paul when he got home!

Including a Whataburger dinner! Wednesdays are practice nights, so it was something fast and easy! And come on, nothing says happy birthday like Whataburger, ha!

We let Paul open gifts before they went...

And this is what Lane wanted to get his dad! A big Nerf gun just like his, so they can shoot each other!!

Lane was just a tad bit excited! I also got him a gift card!!

Then after practice we enjoyed some yummy cupcakes!! 

Happy birthday Paul, I can't believe I've gotten to celebrate the last 14 birthdays with you!

Valentine's Day Fun

Our Valentine's festivities started Wednesday with Levi's school party! He was very excited for his party!

Levi's valentine's for his friends!

Friday started off with Valentine goodies from mommy and daddy! 

A quick photo of my handsome boy before he was off to school!

Paul was off Friday, so he went to eat lunch with Lane and then we just hung out! At 1:30 I headed up to Lane's school for his party! The main feature was the ice cream bar! The kids were in heaven!!

Lane's table! He wanted a Nintendo DS box, so that's what we made!

Lane passing out his goodies!

Sweet buds!

Next up was some games with conversation hearts!

We decided to eat an early dinner, which is the only way to go with kiddos on V-day!! We ate a very yummy dinner at Mi Cocina!!

Then we picked up cheesecake for dessert at home!!

It was a great day with my three Valentine's!! How on Earth I got so lucky with these three, I don't know!! Love them all so much!!

Hope everyone had a great day with lots of LOVE!
