March Via Cell Phone Pics

I’ve been slacking on my monthly cell phone pic round-ups. Because, well… laziness. šŸ™‚
But I miss looking at them. There’s something about seeing the ordinary, small moments that makes me a little more thankful for each day.
So if only for me, I’m starting these again!

Left: We randomly ran into one of Kingston’s cute little friends at the beach.

Right: Me and my shadow.

march cell3

Left: Has anyone else read this yet? So good! It’s about what God really calls us to as believers – not happy, flowery lives we sometimes expect.

Right: Celebrated “Sweet 16” with the sweetest girl – pics from her party coming soon!

march cell1

Both: A rough day at the spa.

march cell2

Both: 8th Annual Spa Day with these girls. We started this tradition when we were all 12-yrs-old. šŸ˜‰

march cell11

Left: Band practice.

Right: Wedding crashers.

march cell4

Both: Is this considered child abuse? I was scared that if I let him out of the cart I’d lose him in that sea of khaki pants!

march cell13

Left: I made this cheesy stuffed raccoon when he was a baby. Now he likes it. He named it Randy Raccoon.

Right: Another day. Another park.

march cell5

Left: His cars go everywhere with us. And they all have names. Pictured here – “Volvo” and “Walgreens.”

Right: That hat kinda goes everywhere too!

march cell6

Left: H&M with my shopping partner. We had the best day!

Right: “In spite of everything, God would love his children with a never stopping, never giving up, unbreaking, always and forever love.”
I love reading the Jesus Storybook Bible to Kingston while he eats breakfast! Pretty sure I get more out of it than him. šŸ™‚

march cell7

Left: “Mom, we’re out of money!”

Right: My first attempt at coconut curry.

march cell8

Left: My car was at the dealership, and they gave us a loaded 5-series for a loaner.
So I accidentally gave them the wrong number to call when mine was ready. šŸ˜‰ #fakerichpeople

Right: So glad this guy loves a picnic as much as me. (Any time we sit outside on a blanket it’s a “picnic.”)

march cell9

Left: That would be my friend JoJo pushing three kids in swings at the same time. Yeah-she’s a pro!

Right: Three happy Almeidas at the bookstore.

march cell12

Left: Trying to do the 80/20 “clean eating” thing. I’m the only one in our house who’s totally on board. Look at him guarding his donut. Poor kid.
He thinks I’m gonna take 80% of it. šŸ™‚

Right: I’m painting the couch that sat in my Grandma’s “parlor” forever! Now it lives in our bedroom. Trying to decide what color trim to use.
(The wood will be a mustard yellow and the velvet is blue.) I’m thinking pink, teal, coral??

march cell14

Left: Thankful for my partner.

Right: I seriously wear these shoes every other day. Need to work another pair into the rotation!

march cell15

Left: He can get in and out of his car seat all by himself. I like it/hate it.

Right: You saw it here first. These fabulous hospital wrap gowns will be all the rage this fall. #stealonewhileyoucan
