Saturday we didn’t do much we hung out at the house because babe decided to surprise us early in the morning. And we just wanted to spend some time with him even tough he slept most of the day because his trip back home was a long one. Him being there was enough the kids were happy so was i.
Then Sunday rolled. You see about a week or two ago a friend of mine put together a picnic. The guest would be moms and their kids from around the areat. The plan was to bring food, snacks and drinks. To hang out and let the kids play and most importantly get to know each other. To say i was nervous is understatement i was nervous wreck.
I was nervous for no reason at all. The moms were so nice and welcoming. After we introduced ourselfves we just kinda starting talking to each other. It was not awkward what so ever.
We continued to talk and talk, we ate some very delicious pizza and desserts. The kids were having blast! They were running wild, playing tag and being kids. Kason came to me at one point and said “I’m having so much fun mommy!” Brit did an amazing job picking out the location the playground was steps away from us easing our natural mother instinct to freak out when we lost our kid in the crowd of other little kids.
One of the moms is a photographer and she also has a blog which I will share down below. She was nice enough to take pictures of the kids and their mini little pumpkin patch.
She did such amazing job.
One of the things I loved about the get together was not only did i get to meet new moms I got to witness women coming together. Even though most of us knew eachother through instagram it seemed like we all clicked. I had a great time meeting these ladies and their kids. We are planning to get together again next month. And hopefully friendships grow from our little get togethers.
Before I wrap this up I want to share a hilarious picture of Kamilah…please don’t mind her lol she is something else
And I also wanted to say
Thank You! Sheislittlebutfierce.com has reached 100 followers!!! I know the numbers don’t mean anything just as long as I’m doing what I love but this is big to me. So thank you so much for making my day!
Mothers day weekend was an overall very calm weekend. Nothing too exciting happened on Friday I was with my mom for most of the afternoon until I rembered I had to clean the apartment. When I made it to my apartment I watched Gossip Girl for the majority of time before I doze off and found myself waking up at 2 in the morning.
Saturday I woke up and started cleaning, I have found myself cleaning just for the heck of it lately. I finished by around 1 in the afternoon it took me a while becauae I was taking breaks lol. Anyways i then made my way to mom’s house to wash and spend some more time with her. Oh I took some awesome pictures of Kamilah.
I mean the girl has style right?! She loves her denim jacket, which I still haven’t decorated.
Sunday, started off slow I kinda slept in. We ate breakfast and then we went out to wait for it….Ripleys believe it or not! Yes we went there for mothers day. I thought it would be a fun experience for the kids and boy was I wrong.
The boys were terrified lol they wanted out by the second room we visited. They were okay after we entered the kid friendly area. So take my advice don’t take your 8 or 3 year old thinking they will be excited to see a one face two bodied goat because nine times out of ten they won’t. I thought it was cool, but maybe that’s the weird in me after all we went to weirdest place for Mothers Day.
Come on they had a vampire killing kit and a Katy Perry picture what more can you ask for. We then went to El Chicos which was crazy because Kamilah wanted to be all over the place. The food was good I will admit.
When we made it home we decided to take the kids to the pool and that’s basically where my mothers day ends. The kids had fun at the pool, Kamilah was having the time of her life.
It was nice weekend but maybe next mothers day we’ll be a little more organized, because all of our activities were out of the blue.
I hope all you mom’s out there had an amazing weekend!
I’m going to start this new series called “weekend behavior” or maybe a “weekend with us” (help me decide) but anyways where I share what me and the kids do during the weekend. I won’t promise every weekend because sometimes we just stay home in our pajamas and watch movies all day.
But this weekend was a pretty exciting one! We took family pictures on Saturday, which was awesome. The location we went to was perfect, it went with the whole vibe I was going for. Which was very casual and earthy.
The kids did great, they were a bit all over the place because it was a park so it was an open field full of fun for them. We got a few smiles and a few shots of them running away typical picture of ours.
Afterwards we went to the mall near by to grab a quick bite to eat and made some room for the Marry go round.
We then went home and got laundry out the way, you know because laundry is the best chore next to cleaning the kitchen (sarcasm)
On Sunday we originally didn’t have anything planned, but we ended up exploring Deep Ellum with the kids.
We had lunch at “easy sliders”, which was delicious we make it our mission to try new things every time we go out and this was definitely something new.
Their loaded taters were my favorite along with their banana pudding! The sliders were so tiny and cute, when she described them as crabby patties she was telling the truth.
We then took some pictures of the kids because Deep Elum has so many murals on the walls it’s crazy! And they have a lot of neat stores too!
We also visited Carlos Bakery!
After our family adventure we went home and took a much needed nap.
This weekend was one of my favorites for sure, so many pictures were taken and so many memories were made.
