We were up and at em' early this morning.
It's only 8 and I'm on my third load of laundry and the dishwasher is already running with breakfast dishes (and dinner and lunch from yesterday...Sunday's are for rest ;) ).

The weekend was filled to the brim with fun.
Friday we took advantage of free food at Chic Fill A if you dressed like a cow.

Friday evening we had an early birthday party at Trav's parents for Colt and me.
My 28th birthday is Wednesday and Colt's 3rd is the following Monday.
I feel so spoiled and blessed by all the presents our families have given us.
The thought that went into each one has really blessed my heart over the past few weeks.
Fun little things for my kitchen that I probably would never
purchase myself because they're out of my price range...
Beautiful jewelery...
Special mugs...
Fun stationary...
Thankyou  for making my birthday so special this year!!!

Saturday morning Emma, my mother-in-law and I went on the hunt for a bridesmaid dress for my sister-in-laws wedding.
I think we may have found a keeper!
The requirements were black and knee length.
We found one at H&M of all places!

Hope your weekend was a good one!
I'm excited to share something I've been working on with you guys tomorrow!
Have a great Monday!

I just had to show you this darling Measuring Cup Set my sister gave me.
Isn't it the cutest thing you've ever seen?!
