What we've been up to


Hey you guys:) Long time no see! Last week my brother, sister in law, and their 4 precious kiddos came to visit. They stayed with us and it was so fun to have them here and for all the kids to be under the same roof!  Needless to say I stayed away from the computer, let my little guys skip school, and we soaked up every minute we could with our favorite cousins! How cute are they?

We tackled Adventure Science Center, Green Hills Mall, downtown Franklin, and the Zoo to name a few.  I love being a mom and an aunt, they are both such gifts!

Mr. C took some time off of work to hang with us but as you know, work follows... I had to laugh when I snapped this picture. Busy Dads!

We hit up a few favorite local eateries and shops.  Grace and I stopped into the TB store (my first time in the official store) and tried on some Carolines....oh.my.word....so comfy! I'm pretty sure I was drooling. The boutique is pretty fancy pants and I was thinking they probably weren't thrilled to see 3 kids coming in with us but let me tell you, the saleslady whipped out 3 iPads and let them sit on the couch and have a grand ole time.  That is service my friends:)

Also tried on these beauties, I don't think I can resist much longer...

We both spotted this necklace at another local boutique and had to have it -- so glad they had 2!

I picked up some Chuck Taylors for the boys at Nordstrom. I couldn't resist a pair myself:)

and my niece got some glittery Toms (as well as some cowboy boots), SO cute.  Girls are so fun to shop with, I'd forgotten what that was like!

We were pretty sad to say goodbye on Saturday.  And would you believe that a few hours after they left little C came down with the stomach bug:(  Not fun!!

And then, of course, it was my turn, another reason for my absence from the blog this week.  I have been on the couch for TWO days friends.  But I'm on the road to recovery:) Hope you've had a good week!


  1. Love the dads on the phone! And your converse are so fun. I wear mine at least twice a week.

  2. What a fun week with family! I am so glad everyone was well during the week! Love the cousin picture, that is just precious! I felt the same way when I went to the TB boutique, so glad yours helped keep the kiddos occupied. Love your new necklace, can't wait to see what you pair it with! The chuck taylor's are so fun too!! Hope you continue on the road to recovery!

  3. Love the glittery Toms!!! Maddie got some striped sparkly Toms and she loves them!!! And that stomach bug is bad news!!!

  4. Those 2 TB shoes are on the top of my wish list! And PS - Target has an extremeley similar necklace to the one you bought, also in white! :)

  5. So glad to see you!!! Loving the shoes and necklace. My little one has the glittery Toms, they are a favorite in our house.

  6. Yay for family time! Boo for stomach bugs! Tory loves kids. Coop got a juice box the last time we went in there! Ha!

  7. I have that necklace in hot pink and it is so fab with so many outfits!!! I love the blue!!

  8. Looooove that necklace. I just bought my second pair of (purple) converses and love them so much. How are you liking the Tom's? I was just going to get the glitter pair (silver!!) and was told that they get smelly and uncomfortable. I'll trust you!

  9. I'm a big Tory Burch fan and those matching Chucks are soo cute!!

  10. Hey I am catching up on all my blogs from being out of town, congrats on the marathon, that is awesome time!!

    I love that necklace, excellent choice my dear

  11. That necklace is so pretty!


  12. I love the necklace! Where can I buy one?! I have the Tory sandals in silver and tan and love them. I wear them all the time. I hope you treat yourself and get them too! Missed you, happy you're feeling better.
