What I Learned {September 2017}

Let's see what we learned in good ole September...I did not do a good job of keeping up with this as I try to do so I'm going to do my best with recall. :) 

1. 36 hours alone is enough!
Earlier this month, Matt took the boys for a weekend at his parents. I had some work to do, some house chores and organizing to do and I just enjoyed some quiet time. I told Matt about 36 hours in that I was good. :) It was fun, it was enjoyable but I'll take my guys anyway of the week and the occasional 24 hours alone. :) 

2. Crockpot chicken is a NO GO!
I made a recipe for chicken pot pie in the crockpot and it. was. terrible. Yeah, not much else to say! 

3. Too much time in the house can make us ALL cranky! 
Over the past two weeks, all four of us have been sick at one time or another and we were incredibly stir crazy and then we got cranky. It was unpleasant at times! 

4. Migraines are very hard for me to tolerate. VERY HARD! 
When I was sick, I had what I'm assuming was a migraine. It was worse than c-section pain. For real! I get headaches maybe once a year and I have never had one like this. I didn't want to be touched. I wanted a dark quiet room and that was it. Thankfully, it lasted less than 24 hours but man, that was a tough day! 

5. New seasons of shows make me extra happy! 
All of our shows are back!! YAHOO!!! I love fresh seasons for our favorite shows and new shows in general. Matt is excited, too!

Easy Like Sunday Morning...{2}

Sunday morning came around and I woke up with a scratch on my eye. So I helped get my guys ready for church and sent them out. They looked so handsome that I needed a picture first. Yeah, here's how that went...







And then we tried in front of the car...I took about 12 more but I'm just showing the best here because everyone had our license plate number and just for safety, I didn't want to include it. I also didn't want to patch all of them...

How cute are they!?!

Greek Fest 2017

One our favorite events in Spartanburg is the Greek Fest. The first few years we lived here, we were always out of town for it. It became a sort of joke because we never thought about it and we would always miss! 
Two years ago, we attended and it was pouring rain so it was fun but not the full effect. Then last year, we were potty training Mason so Matt went to get food and we ate it at home. 

This year, we all four went, the weather was beautiful and we had a great time! 

When we walked up, the band was breaking and the dancers were starting so we watched them for a bit. 

That didn't interest the boys long so we moved to the playground for a bit. 

Love him so. 


After a little play, we headed inside to eat. We shared souvlaki, pastichio, spanakopita, a roll and greek potatoes. So delicious.  

After that, we headed to the few inflatables they had set up. 



We sent this picture to our friends because they had been working hard on replacing water line and we were proud! 

I tried to get a pic with Maddox but he was too into that darn fork. 😂

Mason played on the slide and then on the two big bounce houses. 




A lady gave us their last ticket because they weren't going to use it. Matt used it to take Maddox on the slide while Mason was jumping. Maddox LOVED it! Then we asked Mason what he wanted to do. He had three tickets which was enough for the big bounce house once or for all three guys to do the slide several times. We were surprised and proud that he picked the slide and they all loved it! 

Video proof that Maddox LOVED it! 

After playing, we headed for dessert and then some dancing! 






It was a fun couple of hours and I loved that time together!
