Chalk on Main

One of my favorite nights of the year! 
Bountiful Chalk Fest!

I am always blown away by the talent of other artists!
It is so fun to see the creativity and diversity of the pictures!
I also love to see what my kids pick as their favorites
(Andrew--Mike Wazowski, Lindsay--Little Mermaid, and Matt--Star Wars).

We started the night by going to a new food truck with street tacos with Ben and Kristy.
They were really yummy, but I didn't take any pictures--I guess we'll just have to do it again!

A real pregnancy shot!  I saw one of my friends last night, and she asked how much longer I had.  I said, "9 Weeks."  Today I realized I only have FIVE weeks left!!  Talk about pregnancy brain!

Baby Nursery

Our baby's nursery is nearly complete, and I am THRILLED with how it is turning out!

I REALLY wanted some wallpaper I found online, but just to do one accent wall was going to cost me $400!  

I couldn't bear the thought of paying that kind of money, so I looked for watercolor tutorials on YouTube, and painted my own wallpaper!  

It is far from perfect, but I really like the way it brings the room together! And I LOVE LOVE LOVE this blanket from CopperPearl!  (This is my friend, Stephanie's business, and you should check them out HERE).

Cinco de Mayo

On Cinco de Mayo we hosted a little Mexican Potluck dinner for all of our neighbors that live on our street.  When we originally bought our home, I thought it would be a "starter home" but now that we've lived here, I can't imagine ever leaving!  We have the BEST neighbors! 

We had dinner, then the kids did a piƱata (that Andrew and I made), followed by visiting and kids playing until bedtime.  It  was a fun, relaxing night!  Thanks to all of our awesome neighbors for coming!

Reflections Contest

Matt and Lindsay both won 1st place at our school's reflections contest!

Matt entered in photography, by taking a picture of his teacher working, and Lindsay wrote a story about her brain surgeries.  So proud of these cute kids!

J & J Nursery

I don't know what it is about J&J, but I LOVE it there!
I love how Lindsay thinks every path is a "catwalk" for her to model on.
I love the smells, the newness of spring, and the anticipation of our family garden!
