Because I'm Terrible at Scrapbooks

Kids at heart
The whole family played with Layla last weekend, and it was a hoot.

Seriously. If you ever want to get serious, mild-mannered adults to act like complete idiots, just throw their favorite kid in the room.

All bets are off and manners are thrown out the window.

We played our fair share of Hungry Hungry Hippos. She lost interest after while and we moved onto something else. Only, turns out Will and my dad were totally trying to perfect the game. They were playing on their own, discussing strategy and best practices. Haha

I found it pretty cute.

Layla wasn’t as enamored as I was. You can check out her “lights out” response in the video below. Haha

Play dates get crazy round here.

I’m going nuts over the perfect summer salad I shared last week.

I had it for lunch last week and am having it again this week.

And probably next week.

It’s a thing.

Healthful.

A Meathead’s Dream

Saturday was a good day! I entered to win a $50 gift card to Bodybuilding.com as well as two $25 cards for some friends. I actually won!

I realize it’s just a $50 gift card, but it was such a fantastic surprise.  I really “needed” a couple things that are almost empty.

I planned on saving the card until 4th of July weekend. I figured there’d be tons of tempting sales I could snag.

Only, Monday they emailed a deal too good to pass up, so I had to strike while the iron was hot. They were having a one day sale with a few buy one get one free deals. Not only was I able to score two containers of a 30 serving pre-workout, but I also got two 30-serving containers of BCAAs!

Four products, and I only paid $10.94 with shipping.

As you can tell, I’m a little excited about my loot. Understandably. Who doesn’t want a $50 BB.com gift card?

Don’t answer that.

That moment you get to work in your sleeveless shirt and realize not only did you forget to shave your pits today, but you forgot yesterday too.

Risky business.

New herb babies!
We decided it was time to say goodbye to our herb garden and start fresh.

Aerogarden round 2!!!

They held on forever! Most places say you’ll get a good 4 months out of them, but we got 6. I was very pleased.

The basil did so well we decided to replant them, so hopefully they stay healthy.

I did a slightly different mix this time around- oregano, dill, cilantro, basil, lime basil, mint, and savory.

Some are already peeking out little green leaves!

Why I need to continue to avoid my Pinterest account
My sister almost killed me last weekend with homemade Andes mint brownies. She found the recipe on Pinterest, which further confirms why I DONT need to use my newly formed account. I’d have all the brownies pinned and baked by this Friday, eaten by Saturday, and I’d spend all day Sunday complaining and lamenting about my poor choices.

I’m avoiding Pinterest for humanity’s sake.

Can I please just end telling you how good and faithful God is to me when I don’t deserve it? He totally surprised us with a buyer paying full price for our extra OU season tickets. To be honest, I never thought we’d get a buyer so early, and I definitely didn’t think we’d get the full amount. Such a huge blessing.

Finally, today’s TBT is provided courtesy of Mitlenburg, Germany. 

My parents bought a painting of this place while we lived in Germany, so one day they decided we should go visit the place in the painting. And we did!

That’s all today!
