A Few of my Favorite Things

Smart Phone Photo Dump and Catch up

I feel like I am always playing catch up around here on the blog lately! Life has just thrown a lot of curve balls lately and I am glad things are finally settling down! We are officially moved out of the house and in a mountain of boxes over at my FIL's. I am actually looking forward to hunkering down here for a while before planning another move. We both decided it's best to take our time looking for the next place and not jump on the first house that will work for our little family!

Anyway as I unpack boxes and work on getting us all back to some semblance of normalcy, I hope you enjoy a little photo catch up on Miss H! She is getting bigger by the minute! Less than 1 month before she turns 2!
 Can you believe how much she looks like a little girl and not a baby anymore!
 Cooking up some creations while Mommy packed up the real kitchen
 Splash pad fun!
 Hallie asks me to tie her blankets around her like a skirt and then exclaims "I a pincess!"

Enjoying some pizza at the arena football game! She insisted on doing it "All byself" 
 At cousin Bray's birthday party
Celebrating Mommy's birthday  
 Hanging out by the pool
 That time I locked the keys in the car at Market Street and had to wait for the locksmith to save the day.  Hallie was quite entertaining during the wait though
 Girl loves her animals!
Hope everyone is doing great and had a nice holiday weekend!

Currently May

Things are getting crazy at the Mock house! We are officially moving out this weekend!! So what have we been up to aside from losing our minds and packing you ask??

Still my devotional as well as a million to do lists!

Give me all your favorite Netflix shows ladies!!! No more cable in T-5 days! Right now I am just watching Dancing with the Stars and soaking up my last few days of Ellen! I have been so spoiled with a DVR! 

Lots and lots of coffee! My allergies have me up at weird hours and my sleeping pattern has been TERRIBLE!

I made this super yummy veggie pasta and I can't get enough of it! It is good hot and cold and full of veggies which is great for Hallie!           

For a dear friend! Also praying Hallie isn't too thrown by our transition to her Pop's house for a few month's while we look for a new house.   

Listening to:
I am a total nerd.  My favorite Pandora station is the Glee station.  It plays songs from the show as well as other acoustic artists mixed with some other popular songs! It is pretty great!

Working on:

Hallie is doing pretty good with the potty training! If we are home I usually keep her in underwear and she does pretty good.  Only a couple accidents to date.  Also I am at the end of my to do list for her birthday planning! Just a few more projects and of course the food left! Only about a month to go! 

Looking Forward to:  
This move being passed us.  I am ready to set up camp at my FIL's while we save a little money and find a house we really love! Also looking forward to seeing Hallie's little face the day of her party! She is already so excited! 

Loving: For Mommy:
Loving these sandals I used to have some similar ones and they were my absolute faves, but they have seen better days!
For Hallie:
I love that this kid is finally letting me experiment with other shoes! Not to say we don't love our FP's, but for summer, I love seeing her in a cute sandal! Her faves right now are her Old Navy jelly shoes! She calls them her Cindy-rella shoes because they are clear with silver sparkles! I would LOVE to get some other colors! These pink ones are too sweet!

What have you been up to?

Mother in Law Jackpot

Today I am dusting off the 'ol laptop and finally writing a post I have been meaning to write for a week now.  Packing and moving has really gotten the best of me.  Then you throw in working, being a momma and suffering from the worst allergies I have ever experienced, and at the end of the day, I am beat!

Anyway, I wanted to take this post to share with you that I have not only won the lottery of Mother in Law's, but I have hit the jackpot! 

This Mother's day I knew was going to be a bit difficult. We would all be missing Mom, and I wasn't really looking forward to it. Then I heard that sweet Beth was coming in to help us celebrate and that changed. I picked out my very favorite dessert recipe from my Nana, and Beth agreed to help me make them.  

We spent the day figuring out how to make Nana's Italian Cream Puffs and had such a fun time spending time together.  Then Beth, always ever so thoughtful, brought out a gift that still brings tears to my eyes.  

She said she promised my Mom that she would never let Hallie forget her.  She had my father in law print up these adorable night shirts for Hallie and her cousin Matthew.  Even though these shirts were meant for the kids, they were really the sweetest gift I have ever received! 

Beth, you are truly incredible and I am so lucky to have you as my mother in law. 
From the day I walked into your son's life I have felt nothing but welcomed and loved by you. You accepted me into your family with open arms and I feel so blessed.  You are truly the best grandmother and Mother a girl could ask for.  

Thank you for always being so amazing!  You so gracefully accepted the role as my alternate Momma and for that I will be forever grateful!

Hallie and I love you so much!

Mother's Day recap

We had a really nice Mother's Day despite missing Mom.  My Mother in Law was AMAZING, we celebrated with her on Saturday, which I will do a full update on tomorrow, but like I said, she was amazing!

Mother's Day morning, I woke up to Starbucks in bed from my awesome husband! Then he and Hallie ran in with flowers and a sweet card (which also held a nice gift to Gap so I can do some shopping!) Hallie was adorable and ran to me saying "These are for you Momma" then she said "Happy Mother's Day!" It totally turned my heart into goop!

 Once we were ready for the day we grabbed a quick bite to eat and then went to a new Church.  It was fun getting to meet some new people.

After Church we spent the rest of the day with my Dad, aunt, uncles, nephew sisters, my mom's best friend and my cousins. Dad made some BBQ and my aunt made some dessert.  We pulled out my mom's favorite puzzle and worked on that. It was a really sweet but low key day.

I am so fortunate to have Hallie and Christopher! They really are the BEST!
Hope all the other Mommies had a great day!

Outtakes and Photography Armature

Hallie and I had so much fun with Larissa and her daughter Luna this week taking Mommy and me photos! The atmosphere was so beautiful that I couldn't help snapping a few photos of my own! I am clearly just an armature, but some of them I think turned out pretty cute! Also Larissa asked if I could snap some of her with Luna for her to edit, and I was pretty proud of how they turned out!

 Beautiful besties!

 Beautiful girl!
 These 2!

 She cracks me up!!!

 Beautiful Mommy and Daughter!

I hope all the Moms out there have a FANTASTIC mother's day!
