Life with Bennett {week 25}

Sorry I am SO late in posting this week's update! Trav and I attended the most epic party either of us has been to on Friday night and we are STILL recovering! Ha! I am so old!! I will be sure to share all about the party in next week's update....but in the meantime, here's a look at our Valentine's Week!!


So, where we last left off, Lucas was sick. Running a fever and throwing up. Good times. So Friday morning we laid low!

I basically spent most of the day keeping Ella and Bennett as far away from Lucas as possible!!

Bless this poor little buddy. He thankfully did not throw up anymore after Friday morning, and neither Ella nor Bennett got sick (hopefully I'm not jinxing myself by typing that...but it's been over a week so we should be safe)!


Lucas was finally feeling better and had been fever- and vomit-free for 24 hours! 
So we went back to the heart wall to take pictures, since our first try the week before didn't go so well!

Bennett was like, UMM Mom are you serious. 

Success! I mean, kind of. Better than last time anyway!


Ella wrote her name on her valentines for her classmates! I got these off a local Facebook group!

Bennett watched golf!

And he also fell asleep on me, which hasn't happened in a while. I didn't hate it!


The best day of the month....our cleaning ladies were here!!! 
The boys and I went to the mall to find something for me to wear to event I had to attend with Trav that Wednesday.

Lucas was truly living his best life in Old Navy, ha! He loves the mall!

When Ella came home from school, she decided Bennett needed to wear her bow!

So pretty, haha!


Bible study time!!!

Afterwards, we made a quick trip to Target. Bennett was HATING his life in Target this day!

That afternoon, we had some rolling practice. He is sosososo close!

Look! When he is on his back, he tries to roll onto his belly, which I think is harder than rolling from belly to back. And he's almost there!


The a/c on my car is broken. Which, you wouldn't normally even notice in February, but since it was so hot last week, I did! We were sweating our butts off in my car! Since we just got my car in August, it was covered under warranty, but we had to take it to the dealership where we got the car...

Oh. My. Goodness. Y'all! It took them FOREVER. It was supposed to take an hour....cut to, 2 hours later, me begging for my car back so I could pick Ella up from preschool. They made me promise I'd come right we quickly ran and got Ella, stopped at home to make a quick lunch for Lucas, and then spent another HOUR at the car place!

There is nothing I hate more than taking my car in! Nothing!

The bad news is that they still haven't found exactly where my a/c unit is I have to bring my car back in a few weeks. And then, when they fix the a/c for real, it will take FIVE HOURS. Just kill me now. I can rent a car, but the warranty only covers a rental that is $40 a day. And 3 car seats are not going to fit in any $40/day car. FML. I guess we will be spending all day at the car place that day! Yay.

Wednesday night I got to go to a work event with Trav! In case you missed it, Charlotte hosted the All-Star Game this past weekend, and Wednesday night was the Host Committee Party! 

{my dress was only $20 at Old Navy!}

I guess this was our Valentine's Day date?! Ha! 


Valentine's Day! Our kids woke up to a few small treats!

I missed the memo that Valentine's Day is like Christmas now, haha. Sorry, kids!

After dropping Ella off at preschool, we went to my friend Ashley's for another Bible study! Bennett was not in the best mood...

...but thankfully he got himself together after his nap, so we could take some pictures to commemorate his first Valentine's Day!

I really could just eat him up!

And all 3 of my babies on their first Valentine's Days:

Hope you have a great week! Happy Presidents' Day! :)

  1. Probably a CRAZY idea ... but could you have your husband's car for the day and then have him drop the car off at the shop while its being fixed and then once the repair is complete the dealership can pick your husband back up so that you don't have to sit at the dealership all day? Might not be the perfect solution ... but it's an option! :)
