Weekend Instagram.

A good start to the weekend--classes DONE and grades are in!! I can't complain this semester went smoothly and I had some classes I was really passionate about! One being that I finally took my first photography class! I thought that would lead to a crazy amount of photos on here but it actually did quite the opposite! It kept me busy but I was busy taking photos for that so I didn't have much of a desire to take them for much else, lol. Hopefully now I'll get some more photos going again :) 


Now that classes are over (for now!) I'm excited to be curling up with some new books! Love both of these!


Ava's little jazz costume came in this week!


This "Macaron" Voluspa candle is amazing!!! 


I just had to share this photo of Ava because she looks so grown up :(

& Some summer shopping for the little ladies!! ♥


Hope you all had a great weekend!
Ours was pretty simple and relaxing, just how we like them!

Mother's Day 2013!
When the going gets good, don't forget to get humble.


Macaron Love

I hope all the mommies out there had a wonderful Mother's Day!

I really wanted to go to the domestic violence shelter on Mother's day and  show them that we were thinking of them! There are so many important mommies there! It was really neat putting the little care packages together with the girls and my hubby! I won't go too into details on it today but those women will never know how much allowing me to walk into their lives touched my heart and I can't imagine spending the day in any better way! Truly a blessing! I really don't know what else to even say I'm still just on emotion overload and so touched by the entire experience!!!

It was an amazing weekend filled with celebrating lots of very deserving, amazing people! I'm starting the week feeling totally blessed and refreshed and ready to make things happen!

Mother's Day

"Grace is not given because we have done good works, but in order that we may be able to do them."

"You will never be called upon to give anyone more grace than God has already given you"

"God never called us to be busy. He called us to be fruitful."

San Diego Trip!

Hubby got some days off work so we decided to head down to San Diego for a long weekend! It's always nice to just pack up and get out of town for a bit and it was just what we needed! Relaxing and refreshing!!!


We were down there for Cinco De Mayo so we decided to head to Lucha Libre, it was delicious! We saw it on an episode on Food Network and were so excited to try it out! Look how cute the inside was! Pink!
