Project 366: Day 64 [April 20th]

Good morning all you lovely bloggers out there! :)

I figured I'd start off the blog today with the April Photo Challenge! We're on day #20 today and I have to say... I'm pretty impressed that I've kept with this that long, haha! Usually I give up on blog challenges, but I figure since this was is taking pictures and that's something I love... I'm going to finish it out! :)

Today's task was: SOMETHING YOU DREW.

Oh Lord.

I'll tell y'all right now. I wasn't blessed with that skill. My art teacher in the 7th grade told me that art wasn't what my future career should be in.. and I venture to say he's probably right, haha! But I'll still share the drawing with you. I was showing Tayler 'how to draw' and I decided to draw Plex (the yellow robot off of Yo Gabba Gabba) because I figured that would peek her interest a bit!

So, here's my drawing of PLEX:

Not too shabby I suppose... it completes the task and that's what I needed! :)


My mom's on vacation this week, so we decided to go earlier on in the day. She came to help me with Kenton and Tayler :) I haven't mastered 'taking two kids to the grocery store alone' yet! Congrats to those of you that have because shooooo... that's a task!

Tayler looked super cute today! She wore this little dress her Uncle Jon and Aunt Arena got her! I LOVED it :) It was finally warm enough for her to wear it :)

(I finally got an I-Phone, so I officially have the beloved Instagram... Addicting!)

I sat down and finished the grocery list and made the Menu for the week. Nothing fancy, but here it is folks:

If you can't read that...

Monday- Mushroom Gravy Steaks and Mashed Potatoes
Tuesday- Strombolis (I know.. this is like an every week thing! Ethan LOVES them! We just mix up what we put in them every week!)
Wednesday- Pot Roast
Thursday- Taco Dip and Burritos (Another addiction of Ethans) You'd think he'd be burnt out on things by now, haha!
Friday- I am sure we will have tons of leftovers, so that's on the menu for tonight!

What are you planning on making next week??

Then it was off to the store! I had tons of coupons and did pretty good on the budget this week! :) I even bought a new shirt for myself ;) It was an adorable tank top for $4. Can't wait to wear it!! Here's our juices, waters, and protein shakes. Thought I'd just document the fact that we went to the store, hehe!

Tayler LOVES that clear juice! It is a clear fruit punch so it doesn't stain her clothes! It is just wonderful :)

After the grocery, I had my first maternity session ever with a young lady named Christy! I won't share most of her pictures to respect her privacy, but I will share one that just has her son's name and a pair of shoes. 

I LOVED that 'sign' that one of her friends made for her! They're naming their precious baby boy Gavin! :) Isn't that precious? She's 35 weeks pregnant, so almost there!! Hopefully I'll get to do some newborn pics ;)

Once we got home, it was time to get Natalie. She's the little girl I baby sit at night time. And guess what her Momma bought me?

A paper towel holder that matches my kitchen! Our theme is that little chef man, haha, and it fits perfectly! I love it! I had a 'snowman' theme in my kitchen during the winter, so I've been using a snowman paper towel holder. It was time for a change considering yesterday it was near 80 degrees here, haha! :)

And Papaw and Gigi came to visit Tayler. Papaw hadn't seen her in almost a week and I suppose he wanted cuddle time. Tayler was extremely tired last night (she woke up at 5AM!) and so Papaw got her a bottle of juice and they snuggled up together for a nap time :)

Too cute! I took that one with instagram too! :)

The rest of our night was spent cuddled up watching 'Awake' and 'Scandal.' Have any of you seen 'Scandal' yet? I recommend it! We are glued to the TV during it! It is AMAZING!

Cheers Project 366!

31 Things..

Well, folks. The day has arrived. Tomorrow I turn the big '3-1'.... and I figured since that day is steadily approaching us, I would sit here and reflect on some things I've learned in 31 years. I wouldn't say I'm wise by any stretch of the imagination. I try to learn as much as possible, although I know there's plenty of years to get even more lessons in the areas I fail. 
I might not know it all, but I've sure been through a lot in my 31 years.
Seen a lot.
Heard a lot.
Endured a lot.
Faced a lot.
In some ways, my 31 years has been a lot.
It has been a lot of heartache.
A lot of confusion.
A lot of frustration.
A lot of overwhelming feelings...
But it has also been a lot of blessings.
A lot of redemption.
A lot of mercy.
A lot of grace.
And a whole heck of a lot of fighting to be the person I was called to be.
I'm not sure if I'm the expert-on-life that everyone would want to hear from, but I thought I would list the cliched 31 things I've learned in my 31 yea…

Week 1 of Summer Break (Letters A and B, Numbers 1 and 2)

In the previous post, we discussed our Summer schedule. In that schedule, there was an hour in the morning for theme week activities and an hour in the afternoon. Here is what we plan on doing each week we are on summer break. We will be studying two letters a week, two numbers a week, reading a book, studying a Bible passage, and doing Occupational Therapy activities (for those of you that do not know, our oldest child has non-verbal Autism, so we were sent home some OT/school activities for her to complete over the summer so we do not regress as much over the Summer.) If there's an explanation or picture on Pinterest, the link is in the blog so make sure you check it out! I hope you'll join us!

Week 1: May 28th- June 1st 
Letters of the Week: A and B Numbers of the Week: 1 and  2
Snacks of the Week: Animal Crackers, Bananas

Monday (May 28th) Morning Learning (9AM-10AM)
Trace letters A and B Alligator craft Letter A Sorting Game

Summer Schedule

We are preparing for Summer in the Bay household... and this Summer, things are going to change. I wasn't in the best place of my life last Summer and that showed in the condition of our house, their learning, their schedules, etc. BUT- through the power of Jesus Christ, He has been working on my life and I vow to have a healthier, happier, focused Summer this year.

First and foremost, we are going to stick to a schedule. Last year was all willy-nilly. We got up whenever, I started drinking by 3PM, and then we did whatever in the evening. I rarely had them outside due to anxiety. We rarely went places... and of course, a schedule flew out the window because I *needed* days to battle my mental health BUT I refuse to be that woman this year, in the name of Jesus.

Pinterest has been a great asset for our Summer schedule. Here's what Monday thru Friday in the Bay house will look like.


7:AM-8:30AM: Wake Up, breakfast, TV Shows, Get Dressed
8:30AM-9:00AM: Chores (T…
