Today's "Crappy" Morning + FUN Weekend Recap

How my Monday morning started: found Ava in her crib with a ripped off diaper. Mind you, we now TAPE the diaper on and wrap her 3 times!!!! This girl is Houdini. 
This was followed by an entire morning of laundry, throwing things away, and sanitizing her room...

Later, we took a long walk around the neighborhood (more for my sanity) and then Ava went down for a nap around 2PM. 
As Ava napped, I worked on my holistic health coaching certification and caught up on scheduling team phone calls for Juice Plus+ 
(Let me not forget addressing Ava's 2nd birthday party invitatations and scheduling her play dates...) 
Then I sat back and drank a Suja for the first time. So good!!!! I usually make my own green smoothies but I didn't want to turn the Vitamix on and wake Ava so I reached for this and it was delicious ! So happy I have a great alternative on days that I don't make them myself. This one has apple, banana, mango, kale, lemon, spirulina, chlorella, barley, and alfalfa.  I bought this one at Publix (FYI) 
• GO Publix for their progress in stocking more organic foods and juices!    :) 

Over the weekend.... 
Jacksonville: Visiting our friends and their families! 

Friday was spent having lunch in St. Augustine with our friends, Jacki, Jared, and their little girl, Peyton. 
We had a great time catching up and touring the historic city. 

At Flagler College

Stop and smell the "fa fa's" 

Saturday morning: 
My best friend, Sarah (Ava's Godmother) took us to the Jacksonville Zoo! Ava had  a BLAST! 
She loved getting to see all of her favorite animals up close. 

She got to feed her one of her favorite animals! 

"come back!" 

Excited to see other kids. 

Turtle! Another favorite 

Saturday Night

We went over to our friends' home for a FSU game watching party and spent time with some of my husband's fraternity brothers and their families. 

New papa, Jared, and his little girl, Peyton 

Left: Ben and his sweet Adelyn,  Mike (expectant father!), and
Michael (He is single, ladies! Come and get him!)

MaryAnn & Joseph (not shown: big brother, Jackson)
(Out of town: Emily (expecting baby #1)

We are all very grateful to have each other and watch our kids grow up together. Although we tease them sometimes, our husbands' fraternity not only brought them a lifelong brotherhood, but it brought us wives close together with a strong bond as well.
Happy to have them all in my life. 

FSU game watching with kiddos... how times have changed!

As you can see, we have a blast every time we visit our friends in Jacksonville. So much has changed since our days at FSU but they just keep getting better and better. 
Our growing families = A lot of reasons to get together and see one another! 

Hope everyone is having a great Monday!
