A Week in the Insta-Life of BA and Harry


I am so far out of the loop these days that I didn’t even post last week’s Instagram round-up, even though I had it all prepped and ready! We’ve been itching for the yumminess of spring and North Carolina keeps teasing us – one day it is 70 and sunny, the next is overcast and 50. Today was raining with a high of 39 degrees, so we’re pretty confused and all over the place. I’m not sure whether to keep out my sweaters or switch over to flowing bright summer tops!

I spent a long weekend in Dallas, Texas with the Blissdom Conference this past weekend. It was a great time to get away and recharge my batteries as both a momma and a blogger – things I had been feeling pretty drained at simultaneously. But last night when I laid in my hotel room, all I could think about was getting back to my boys and back to my normal routine of work, writing, and wondering what’s going to break next in our Money Pit house.

While I try to settle back into normal life, here’s a peek at what went on last week before I left:

  • Spring has arrived! 1 of 11
    Spring has arrived!
    We are rolling around with happiness in the green grass & warmer temperatures! woohooo!
  • Margaritaville 2 of 11
    After a girlfriend had a rough week, we went out for Girls Night & had margaritas. They were delicious & it was so good to just be a good friend for an hour instead of wiping noses & cooking dinner.
  • Nap with me, Momma? 3 of 11
    Nap with me, Momma?
    Oh, I can never resist that request. Between the snuggles & the snoozing, curling up with my boy in the afternoon is still one of my favorite activities.
  • Thank you, Hersheys! 4 of 11
    Thank you, Hersheys!
    They sent us a sweet Easter basket full of yummy goodies. Harry is LOVING getting to pick out a treat after he eats his supper!
  • Monsters, Inc 5 of 11
    Monsters, Inc
    I grabbed a copy of Monsters, Inc when picking up Harry's medicine. He loved it! Such a cute movie if you haven't seen it yet.
  • Sometimes you just gotta drink your meal 6 of 11
    Sometimes you just gotta drink your meal
    Anyone else on the smoothie train? My favorite is strawberries, blueberries, banana, & spinach with a little Greek yogurt tossed in. Yummy & filling!
  • Chore charts 7 of 11

    We decided it was time for Harry to start earning things, so I made a chore chart! You can find the tutorial here.
  • Out for a run 8 of 11
    Out for a run
    Training for the sprint triathlon has become my one thing that I do to relax & refocus. Getting out for a few miles every other day really helps my stress levels.
  • Womp, womp 9 of 11
    Womp, womp
    No ACC title for Carolina this year. My husband is thrilled because Kansas won their conference!
  • He’s still my little baby 10 of 11
    He's still my little baby
    It's starting to hit me that he's 3 1/2 years old & losing the toddler how he is helping to dress himself & is learning to write letters. That's so LITTLE BOY of him but then he crawls in my lap & he's still my baby. It's an awesome age.
  • Sick boy 11 of 11
    Sick boy
    Winter won't leave without one final daycare crud, it seems. The black rings under his eyes show the awful sinus pressure we've all had this week.
