Feels like Summer


Well, we went from 50s to 80s here in the midwest and it’s fine. I’ll take whatever I can get at this point! I just want to pack away the long sleeves and break out all of Blaire’s cute dresses and the water table she got for her birthday back in February.

We had a great Mother’s Day. If you follow me on Instagram, then you know we ate all the food (Coffee, grilled cheese, french fries, ice cream… you know. The essentials.) and had a fun, relaxing day! Ben slept most of the day. He just loves his car seat and the stroller puts him right to sleep. He was awake for ice cream and was full of smiles!

    Your mother’s day sounds perfect since it sounds a lot like mine!! Any day starting with coffee is perfect in my book.

    It sounds like a sweet Mother’s Day weekend you had! We’ve been hit with a huge heat wave (that seems to already disappear by tomorrow) and I’m enjoying every second of it!

  • ice cream outside with two of my favorite people. when it’s only 70° outside you can actually eat your ice cream without it melting all over us... and by us I mean them. 👆🏻👆🏻 #blaireandben

  • Well we don’t have a Nordstrom near us, but we do have an Aldi. Most of their summer items are on clearance and we scored this sweet pool for $7. Winner, winner. 🦄☀️ #blaireandben

  • This summer hasn’t really felt like summer yet. 🤨 So when we have an 85° day we make the most out of it with a trip to the pool! How’d you spend your Sunday Funday? #blaireandben
  • another day, another doctors appointment for someone in our crew. today it’s Ben. he was up overnight saying his ear hurt — a double ear infection for him. luckily the kid loves taking medicine and hasn’t let his ears get him down! as long as he’s up moving around they’re fine, but the second he lays down... 😭😭😭. hoping our poor buddy is feeling better tomorrow. do you feel like you need a frequent flier card for your pediatrician? just me? okay. #blaireandben #itsfinewerefine

  • When your brother is getting big but you still want to hold him... you gotta pinch his butt because he’s so wiggly. 😂😬😍 #blaireandben •

  • It is definitely bittersweet to leave the house where we brought both of these babies home. But we are excited for our next chapter as a family of five! #rainbowbaby #blaireandben

  • Last night was our first night in the new house. 👏🏻 We still have lots of stuff to bring from the old house and then lots of cleaning over there before the final walk through and closing next Monday. Then we can focus on getting this house unpacked and organized. But first, I would like a nap. 😴 #blaireandben #happilytristahome
  • Happy Halloween! 🎃 👻 #blaireandben

  • This sums up our Sunday. After driving around like crazy people to go to three parties yesterday, today was lazy and included movies, popcorn, long naps, quick trick or treat at the mall and then spaghetti pizza. And I might be eating my kids candy on the couch right now. 😍 How was your weekend? #blaireandben
  • Childhood... drinking a frosty in your teepee. what. a. life. We had a slow weekend. Literally vegged out at home 95% of the time and it was marvelous.  #blaireandben
