Life Lately

Oh, hey Monday, you sure came fast…

This weekend was a working weekend for Landon, so Brynlee and I decided to escape the heat and head to Grandma’s house up north.


But not before I received this little box of happy mail. You guys… I cannot tell you how excited I was for this to come in the mail, I was checking the tracking every day! I got the started kit and I’ve had a lot of fun trying out the different oils over the past few days!


I’m so excited to start on the essential oil journey and am looking forward to trying out the many other products Young Living has to offer. If you use oils, I would love to hear some of your favorites, please comment below!


I also had to finish up some orders for the Blissfully Made Shop before I could head out of town.


I do have a few ready to ship sunglasses organizers available in both fabric options so hurry on over to the shop and get yours today!

And after that was taken care of, we could enjoy our super fun, but all to quick weekend with Grandma!


First stop, Freedom Station! We met my sister and her kids there and the girls had so much fun playing all of the games!


Even though Brynlee didn’t actually play this dancing game, she sure loved jumping around on it and dancing to the music!


On our way out, we of course had to stop at the fountain, because when two toddlers see one, you have no choice but to go. And how I manage to keep Brynlee out of it was sheer luck because she tried and she tried hard to climb in there!


Thankfully Grandma was there to provide a great distraction and Brynlee had a lot of fun running around with her on the grass.


I really love when Brynlee gets to spend quality time with my mom. She really bonded with Grandpa this trip too and would get so excited when he came home from work or would meet us for lunch!


Once we got back to my mom’s house it was all about playing outside and helping to feed the horses. And aside from a quick shopping trip on Saturday and helping my mom with a few things, we tried to spend as much time as we could outside! The weather was absolutely beautiful while we were there and I was loving every minute we got to be out there since we are basically stuck inside all day when we’re home right now…

Brynlee really loves to help take care of the horses and her favorite is when she gets to feed them.



Sometimes we have a little trouble getting her to stop giving them hay, but I’m sure the horses don’t mind getting a little extra.


Saturday afternoon we took a little walk up to the back of my mom’s property in hopes of tiring a certain toddler out so she would take a nap.



No such luck on the nap, but I did find out I have a rock climber on my hands. She was pretty darn insistent on trying to get up these rocks and did not want any help! My little independent girl may have had a little meltdown when I wouldn’t let her climb all over the rocks without me or Grandma by her side.


Fortunately, playing in little puddles are a great distraction from tantrums!


We headed home early Sunday morning and after 2 days of no naps, going to bed late and waking up early, my little Brynlee took a 3 hour nap!!! Those are rare people and I took advantage of it! I spent some quality time with my sewing machine making my umpteenth (seriously, I’ve lost count) car seat canopy that I’ve had on the agenda for the past week. I love when I can check things off my to-do list!

And all to quickly here we are, back at the start of another new week. Where has this year gone??? I hope you all had wonderful weekends too!
