Visit with Kristy and Meeting Luke

One of my lifelong friends Lauren Bergoon and I left our kiddos with family and set off to Memphis to meet sweet Luke, Kristy and Rich's new bundle of joy. Kristy, Lauren and I were best friends in highshool and it was so fun to reunite and have a little girl time.
Here are some pictures of sweet Luke(6 wks). He is SO handsome! We had the best time and laughed alot....

Every mom needs a break. I missed Iris terribly, but I used the time away to reboot!

Iris had SO much fun having a whole week with her grandparents, but was so excited to be back in her own crib and now LOVES all her own toys again.

I had a surprise waiting on her when we got home. I made her her own play kitchen from an old TV stand I bought at Goodwill for 7$ :) I painted it Lime Green and used a dog bowl as her sink. I painted on the eyes for the Stove and gave her little knobs to turn. I used some fabric I already had and made a curtain so she could keep all her little dishes and vegetables on the shelves below. She absolutely loves it. I honestly haven't seen her play with something so long. Here are a few pics of it....

Until next time~

I will leave you with one of my favorite quotes from a Poet named William Cowper...

"His purposes will ripen fast, Unfolding every hour; The bud may have a bitter taste, But sweet will be the flower"
