The BFF sent an email demanding to know why I was MIA? I told her the next post would be good and by golly, I think this little animated gif is pretty darn good. What do you think? Glow really makes our days brighter!

We're loving our floors and Glow loves crawling on it. Our weekend was spent putting our kitchen back together and gardening. The kitchen is almost done, but not quite as we still have to get knobs in. I am loving it already and I have a few more changes I would like to do to it (ahem, subway tile), but I would like a break from construction before we dive into another. Anyone have white/grey subway tile in their kitchen? I am particularly curious on how well is does on the backsplash of the stove because I am wondering if it is a pain to maintain the grout? We are cookers over here, so the kitchen will be used a lot and it will get dirty. If anyone has any tips or suggestions regarding subway tile, I would love to hear it! This and this picture is my inspiration. 

Learned and links...

Glow loves drinking water from a bottle! None of my girls ever liked the bottle though. 

Soul's is one spunky kid. She goes from happy to mad in 0.5 seconds.

True officially finished kinder. 

Brave is excited about starting kinder.

I am not well-versed in brand name sunglasses, but I like these from the Sunglasses Shop, which is a new sponsor.

Just got these pants and I have a feeling I will live in them all summer.

And I may or may not have ordered this too. Oye!

Biggest lesson learned... God is always better than basketball. I'm on the fence on who to go for... Miami or OKC?! Ugh. Not a fan of both.

Can Monday really already be over?!! I have a feeling this week will fly by and I am kind of excited because we have some fun plans ahead.


  1. AHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!! LOOK AT HER GO!!!!

  2. a. i'm a fan of white subway tiles.
    b. i'm definitelyyy a fan of that cute baby gif.

  3. My son loves drinking water from a bottle too.

    The Pretty Pinhead

  4. that gif is amazing! the pokey tongue at the end is just hilarious! your floors look great, and those subway tiles sound like a lovely idea!! :)

  5. That rug! I need to see a full picture!

  6. My one-year old girl also goes from happy to mad in half a second :)

  7. Really like the gif of Glow. Fregin adorable!

  8. We love our subway tiles! They're easy to clean too. I just use a vinegar and water spray on them. What a cutie Glow! Our baby girl is gearing up for crawling too :)

  9. If you're worried about things getting dirty between your white subway tiles consider a darker grout. Personally, I love the look and you won't have to be scrubbing all the time.

    I love your blog, I've been a reader for years!


  10. This Oklahoma girl thinks you should cheer for OKC!

  11. I've loved your blog for so long but never have written a comment. We have such similar lives, thoughts and styles. I love the Lord, have 3 girls under the age of 4, and check the anthro site every Tuesdays for new sale items. ;) But I have to say, you love the Spurs like we love OKC. Don't hate because of D. Fisher. We've got a bunch of humble players who openly love the Lord too. They have done so much to unite our small city we're pulling for them. Thanks for the blog. :)


  12. chiming in on the subway tiles! we have white ones with grey grout. love them! and easy to clean.

    I like the grey grout because it doesn't show the dirt as much as white plus it gives some nice contrast to the wall! wouldn't change a thing! happy to send a pic if that helps you.

  13. Ruby, I LOVE white subway tile, had it in our old house (6X6) but went slightly longer in our current home. It is not hard to clean, i just use a magic eraser on mine.
