FLASHBACK POST – The Mountains are Calling

For this week’s post I’m going to take ya back to this time last year.

We were tucked around in South Central Colorado, Fair Play to be exact with an almost 1 year old Weston, crazy Brady and some of our closest friends.

Let’s take a Colorado hike shall we? (twilight flashback music plays as I’m doing flickering jazz hands over your face)

 

Oh the many many photos I still need to edit from this trip. There are tons.

Maybe another flashback post in in order once I get them all finished up.

Until then are a pics few from our hike (that you saw in the vlog)

Awesome but Incredibly Random Story

IMG_25302e3 copy

Okay kiddies gather around. It’s time for story time!

Any long time readers remember this cabin we visited a few years back? You can find our blog post on it here in case you need to jog your memory!

We’ve stayed in many a cabin (I have a post on my cabin obsession here)  and this beauty is one of our favorites.  

The views, the property, the cabin itself it’s just the perfect cozy abode. In fact I’m a little sad we won’t be able to stay here again……..

Want to know why?

Here’s where the interesting but totally random story part kicks in!

I received a comment on our YouTube channel this week form a nice man thanking me for sharing our vlogs about this cabin. He told me that because of them he and his wife recently purchased it.

Whhhhhhaaaaaat (scratching record sound plays)!?!?!?!?

We messaged back and forth a few times and he told me that he did a Google search for cabins in Arkansas. Our vlogs that we shared from our stay in this cabin popped up. They fell in love with it and rightfully so it’s a great place.

They noticed that it was in Mountain View, Arkansas did a little more digging and guess what…….

That very same cabin he fell in love with from watching our vlogs was for sale! They purchased it a couple weeks ago and he was kind enough to come back to our channel to share the story with me.

I know awesome, right? See I told you it was an incredibly random but awesome story!

Aren't the interwebs so neat?

I’ve meat so many awesome people through our Instagram account and now our silly vlogs helped direct someone towards their new home.

They are living in the cabin full time so it will no longer be a rental property but I have warned him that he may randomly find me sitting like this on his back porch. 

The moral of the story is…….

If you have an awesome cabin preferable tucked in the woods with an amazing view that you’re looking to sale you should probably invite me for a visit. As a thank you I’ll help you sale it! Winking smile

Consignment Haul

We’re getting ready for our summer trip to Colorado……y’all know I’m pumped! Love me some mountain time!

The boys needed a couple of warmer options for chilly Colorado nights and I was of course excited for a reason to get my thrift on.

It’s consignment haul time!

Proud Minivan Mama

Ain’t no shame in the game friends!

I am now a mama with a minivan and I couldn’t be more excited about it! This week I’m going to take you on a little tour of our new ride.

 

PS…I think this Wednesday vlog/blog thing is sticking around. You know how I feel about making things an actual “thing”. It makes me nervous but we’re going on week 5 of having a vlog up on a Wednesday so I guess it’s happening. If you’re not already doing so be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel as well!

I’ve pre recorded several vlogs…….

-A new Stitch Fix haul
-What I’m doing for Carson’s baby book 
- The 1st installment of the “Journey to Me” series
-Consignment Haul

that just need to get edited and posted to our channel. I don’t want to clog the blog up with only post about vlogs (wow that’s hard to say) so some vlogs will only be for our YouTube channel.

If you don’t want to miss out you can subscribe to our channel here.

Also the “How I Style My Naturally Curly Hair” post is coming along. It’s almost done so I hope to have it up soon. Now I know why it’s a post that’s been highly requested for the longest but something I’m just now doing. Typing up a post about hair especially crazy curly hair is no joke! I hope to have it up later this week but that all depends on the nap hating infant.

VLOG: Kent’s 40th aka Food Coma

So this weekend was supposed to be all about Kent but he surprised me with something pretty sweet! I’m going to make y’all watch this week’s vlog to see what he surprised me with!

Y’all my tummy could not hang with Kent! SO.MUCH.MEAT! 

He only turns 40 once so I decided to put my Whole30 diet on hold for the weekend so he could pick restaurants freely without worrying if there was something I could eat. All of his favorites are some of my favorites as well but the boy LOVES meat so that’s pretty much all he ordered for 3 days straight. I was so excited to see those Asian greens at our last birthday meal on Sunday!

I’m happy to repot that I didn’t gain back any of the weight I had lost  over the weekend which I was for sure would happen. 1 week into the Whole30 and I’m down 3 pounds yahoo! 

Annnd about the surprise…….Eeekkk I’m so excited! It was a last minute thing and something I didn’t think was going to happen this year so I‘m even more pumped than I usually get!

Of course I’ll be taking you guys along with us! I’ll be vlogging while we’re there and sharing photos during our trip with all my Instagram pals! My dream job is to be a travel host and this is about as close as I’m going to get so I LOVE to share our vacations with you!

I’ll be back Friday with a post that is one of my most requested……..

How I style my naturally curly hair! I’ll have links to products and tips!

See y’all then!
