This Weekend:

* Friday morning we loaded up on our Friday Fuel!

Donuts and caffeine...their teachers probs don't mind, right?

* Ran my Friday errands which included a stop at Marshall's.
They have their Halloween stuff out!!!

Their seasonal stuff is always THE CUTEST!!!

Made a quick stop at Costco afterwards.
{Yup, still loathe that place.}

* Rewarded myself since I made it through the whole store in less than 20 minutes with a Crumbl cookie afterwards!

I got the Peanut Butter Bar cookie and I'm not gonna lie...I didn't love it.  Which is shocking because I LOVE peanut butter and I LOVE chocolate and I LOVE Crumbl.  
This one was just too much.

* Back at home I worked on a slew of new items for my Etsy shop that I'm SO excited to share with everyone soon!

I'm adding DOGGIE ornaments to the shop this year!!!

* Friday night we laid low, ordered pizza and I snuck out around 8:00 pm with some of my dearest girlfriends for a soda run. 

* Saturday morning we all slept in and then our cute nieces came over for a playdate with London.  

First thing on her list that she wanted to to do with the girls?
Go to Circle K of course.
{Doesn't take much to make my kids happy 😆}

The kids played, Joe and I got stuff done around the house and then Saturday night we snuck out for a quick Texas Roadhouse date.

* Afterwards, I headed over to our church building and hung up a special little bulletin board for our ward.

Have you seen THIS video?
It's near and dear to my heart and I do hope you'll watch it.  It's only 3 minutes and it's something good for EVERYONE.

* Churchey-church on Sunday.

3 of the darling teenagers in our ward came up to me before church started and pointed out that we ALL had the SAME shoes on.  How fun is that? 
{I guess I'm not totally out of style yet 😅}

* Sunday night we had a family dinner over at Joe's parents house.  My sis and bro-in-law recently just got to go the Taco Bell Resort in Palm Springs and it was SO fun to hear all about their experience there.

Yes...the resort even offered Taco Bell fades.
{We died!!!😂😂😂}

They even brought us different flavors of
 Taco Bell chips to try!

 The mild was too spicy for me so I said no to the Diablo flavor. 😉

I'm taking some time off from blogging this week.
I head into the hospital on Tuesday for some surgery.

All is well but because I'm a pretty open book - I'll let you know why.  I'm having a hysterectomy with some extra work done down there.  They'll take everything out but my ovaries, repair some damage done from my big, beautiful babies and I'll then be getting a bladder sling put in so that I don't pee my pants anymore when I cough, laugh, sneeze, jump...etc, etc.

Pretty much everything of mine down there is prolapsed.
So that's been fun!

Recovery will be awhile. 

The good news is that I'll be laying around A LOT which means lots of time on my laptop and LOTS of fun new ideas on my blog. 

So....there's that!

I will most likely be posting updates on my Instagram stories this week so if you'd like to follow along my journey - be sure to head over there and follow @azmarci.



  1. Good luck on your surgery, Marci ~ I love your posts, so get better quick and be back at it. Claudine

    1. Thanks so much for the well wishes Claudine! xoxo

  2. Praying for a smooth recovery!! Hope the surgery helps. I am the daughter of a Urologist, and a sister to one as well.

  3. I will be praying that the surgery goes well and that you have a quick recovery. I can't tell you how much I love your blog:) My family thinks I'm nuts because I talk about you and your family all the time. I feel like we're friends and we've never even meet.

    1. I love this so much Tracy. Thank you for sharing....XOXO

  4. Prayers for your surgery - good outcome and quick recovery! I spent my weekend with one of the "little girls" you used to babysit and her own cute baby girl!!

    1. Ahhhh...makes me feel SO old. Thanks for your well wishes!! xoxo

  5. Some advice from someone who has had a similar surgery-take it easy afterwards, even if you feel good. It's just better in the long run, Also I ordered your cute Have Joy ornaments and notebooks-they are so adorable! You are so creative and have such great ideas! Thank you for sharing them with us!

    1. Thanks Kelli. I will definitely take your advice on laying low. I've had multiple people tell me that same thing so i guess it's important ;) So glad you loved the ornamnets and notebooks! xoxo

  6. I hope you recover quickly. Best surgery I ever had! I love that all the girls loved your shoes. I have a craving to go buy me some now.

    1. Ha thanks! It made me feel like maybe I wasn't SO out of fashion these days ;) xoxo
