LIFE LATELY {3.25.19}

Happy Monday, friends!!

Well, I took a longer break from blogging than planned but it was fabulous and much needed! Originally, I was going to take off Spring Break with my kids…and it was wonderful! Lots of rest, late nights, movie time, playing outside, and board games. Exactly what our family needed before starting up busy baseball season. However, the 17th was my birthday and Mark surprised me with a trip to Vegas! We spent five days together last week - just the two of us. It was FABULOUS! Today I’m sharing a little from our trip and a little life lately. 😉


Earlier this month, Cutter performed a musical at church about the story of Joseph with a 50s twist - Not Your Average Joe . If you know this kid, it was HUGE that he stood up there and sang with the Kidz Praise Choir! And having your friend in choir with you makes it even better!


Spring soccer season started a few weeks ago for Cutter. We had to bundle up for the first game of the season, but we were so grateful for warmer weather this week!


Carson played his first game of the season this week. He wears his Daddy’s old baseball number - #19!


Cutter played his first games this week too. However, to be a little different than his older brother, he wears Daddy’s old basketball number - #31!

We have games Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday nights. If you need us for the next few months, we’ll be at the ballpark! #myfavoritetimeofyear

We celebrated my birthday in Vegas this year! I’m a St. Patrick’s Day baby so I was sporting my green for the day!

Mark surprised me with the trip and it was THE BEST birthday!


Mark booked us at the Palazzo. I don’t normally post pics of hotel rooms but I was so impressed!


We had a whole seating area complete with desk and dining table.


And the bathroom was beautiful! I think it was probably the largest we’ve ever had on a trip.


It even had a make up vanity!

Mark had no idea the room was so nice. He was pleasantly surprised as well!

We ate lobster rolls one day and lobster grilled cheese the next day for lunch at Luke’s. They were both SO GOOD!

I didn’t take a lot of pics this trip but I’m always a sucker for a waterfall or fountain. I think they are beautiful and so soothing when you stop to listen.


We did a lot of walking! Over 70,000 steps in three days!
We went to the Fashion Mall and did a little shopping too. I think they add more stores every time we go!


My favorite was Kendra Scott!
We don’t have one locally so I always love to see all the jewelry. I love her pieces because they are so lightweight and most can be dressed up or down depending on if you are headed to church or just in t-shirt and jeans for the day.

That’s a little life lately.
Hope you guys have a great week!
