This Weekend:

* Friday was all about the party prep for London's puppy themed birthday party.

We had 22 girls over on Friday afternoon and I can't wait to share ALL of the party details with you tomorrow!

London was pleased as punch with the whole thing and I was completely pooped afterwards. 😜

It was A LOT of fun and her 22 little friends were oh so cute.
8 year olds are the best!

* Saturday morning was filled up with basketball tournaments for Grant.

* We hit up Costco afterwards...

...and let's just say I remembered, yet again, why I try to avoid this place on the weekends. 

* Date night on Saturday night with some of our favorite friends.  We ate HERE and then headed onto our Stake Conference meeting.

Wait.  Your husband doesn't tuck his napkin into his collar to avoid rib stains on his clean white shirt??


My husband has no shame.
And I sorta love it.

* Sunday morning I was in charge of feeding our wonderful Stake Presidency breakfast, in between their Stake Conference meetings.

We served quiche, hashbrowns, fresh fruit and the best orange rolls in town.

* Post Stake Conference nap.
3+ hours.
I was WIPED from all of the activities this weekend.

* London and I got some of her cute little baptism invitations ready to deliver and send on Sunday afternoon...

...and then we grilled burgers for dinner and the kids played outside with one of London's new birthday presents.

The Wubble Bubble Ball.
Their minds were blown with this thing 😆

FUN St. Patrick's Day Breakfast.

A few years back, I helped host a little St. Patrick's Day breakfast for the sweet teenage girls in my church. 

It's one of my favorite things that I've ever done, I think.

My dear friend and I planned everything out from the place settings...

to making sure our cinnamon rolls had GREEN frosting.

I've got LOTS of details all about it HERE.

Someone posted the other day on Facebook:

I could not agree more!
I might just take this up as my new motto.

2fer Tuesday.

2 St. Patrick's Day Ideas Worth Sharing:


These Top o' the Morning Pancakes from Betty Crocker.
My kids' heads might explode if I made them for em because hello!?! JUST the marshmallows from the Lucky Charms???

That's pretty much their fave thing of all time.


Pinch Proof Punch tags from My Sister's Suitcase.

This one has Carson's name written ALL over it.
No joke - when he was little and he didn't get his Gatorade {he's never been a big milk drinker and yes, we buy the G2 to cut back on the sugar} we would say 'watch out...he's gone into a Gato-RAGE! 😂

2 Things I LOVE Right Now:

Locals: If you like good mexican food THIS is the place for you. Their chips and salsa + their Flying Saucers are my FAVORITE!!!!

They just opened up THIS WEEK so go over and show them some love.  It's a beautiful restaurant. You order at the counter and then they bring the food to you. Oh and how could I almost forget....their Diet Coke is hands down the best. 

It's located on the NW corner of Higley and Baseline.
And guess what? Tonight it's TACO TUESDAY!!!
