Monday at My Home

Well these past couple weeks have been a whirlwind but I am glad to be getting caught up on a lot of things. I have been struggling with sadness off and on but I just have to give it to God because he is the one to lean on to help me get through the day. It has been wonderful taking time to just get to love on my sweet Evelette after the miscarriage. Last week we went up by the Seattle area and hung out with Richard while he was on a business trip. I did plenty of shopping and laying by the pool! So nice.
Here's some photos of what we have been up to....
I rearranged Evelette's room, It needed to be tweaked a little bit since we got the new amoire.




My hubby and I went a little nutty and got new bikes and trailer/stroller for Evie so we could all go bike riding together. We went riding that same night after going to two different Fred Meyers (a one stop shop) three times that day to get the right ones cause they were having an amazing sale. Evelette was kinda tired cause it was her bedtime but she still had a blast.


Cousin Olivia just had to try it too!




She was also tickled about her new princess helmet.

I made some super yummy cupcakes this weekend! I have been wanting to make some for a while now since I got these cute cupcake liners at Joannes. I think these would be cute even with little tea lights in them for a party or something!

The cupcake liners are so cute! I would make your nanny's bran muffins in them! It would feel like such a treat to have such a beautiful breakfast every morning.

Shopping, laying by the pool, and sweet cupcakes... where can I sign up for that kind of weekend? It sounds like your family had a blast. I am just learning how to ride a bike. I'm a roller skating gal all the way!

jociegal said...

Wow - a lot going on for you! Looks like a lovely weekend!

christine said...

I'm in love with your bike. Why is that everything is better when it is pink?

Brittney Lynne said...

First of all, Evelette's room is SO cute like that! She must be special huh? It's more grown up looking instead of the nursery it was before... A perfect transition for a growing girl;) I think that is the key to decorating kids' rooms; creating a space that can grow with them so that tons of $$$ doesn't need to be spent as they transition from baby to childhood. And second of all but just as important, those bikes are the coolest bikes I have ever seen! Your vintage looking pink bike will make all the girls jealous as you ride around town! I bet they would make for an awesome black and white old fashioned photo too! I love Monday posts:)

say.la vie said...

The room is perfect. :) And as for those cupcakes....YUM!

keely @ luxe + lillies said...
