Weekend Wrap-Up {3//19//2018}

That weekend was beyond needed for the Hensley 5. If you follow this blog at all, then you know that most of our Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays are just NON-STOP! This weekend, however, our big plans were cancelled, so we were given the opportunity to relax & play catch-up a little. We even had fun celebrating St. Patty's Day!

It was so, so nice!


Joe took the boys to school, and I did all the laundry!
Three loads to be exact!
Washed, dried, folded, and put away.
(Well the boys put their own clothes up, but ya know)

Then Nataleigh & I got ready & headed to my grandparents' farm to see some family & friends that were visiting!

& someone felt extra sassy in that cute outfit + all that sunshine!

We grabbed the boys, and Nataleigh just cannot get enough of her brothers!
It was my mother-in-law's birthday, so we headed to Target to grab candles & a card, and the kiddos were wanting a slushie super bad!

Happy BABES!
We met my in-laws at our favorite Mexican restaurant & celebrated Mimi!

I had stopped by Buttermilk Sky Pie Shop where I grabbed Mimi her favorite, the chocolate chess pie, and everyone else a chocolate chip pie! (The chocolate chip pie was like cookie dough filling & so good!)
Oh Mimi we love you!


We started Saturday super early. Joe offered to help my Poppy take off some cattle to the stockyard, and the boys just love going with them. We headed up to the farm early, early, so they could get the cattle loaded.

It was supposed to rain all day, but the weather broke. Carson's baseball team had practice, so this mama headed to baseball while Stephen headed with Joe & Poppy. My mom also came over to watch Nataleigh for me. 

It was just a busy couple of hours with lots of moving parts, but it was still fun!

From my grandparents' house, Nataleigh & I headed to Sam's Club, and she's officially obsessed with all their pool floats.

By this point of the day, we both realized that we skipped lunch, and we were both a little hangry.
Chick-Fil-A to the rescue!!

Like I said earlier, the weather broke, so the kiddos played outside in all that glorious sunshine!

We even took the car to the car wash...
My kiddos love the car wash so much!!

We then were heart-broken by Tennessee's devastating loss, but what a season!! From picked 13th out of 14 SEC teams to a number 3 seed, I'm one heck of a proud Vol fan!

Showers & getting all the things ready for Sunday morning..
& this cutie was rocking some sponge rollers!!


Early morning cartoons with my girl...
Sundays are for church...


And then half-way through Joe's sermon I realized that someone (Stephen) has completely out-grown his jeans.
The struggle is real, y'all!

We headed to one of our favorite fast food spots for lunch, Taco John's.
give me all the potato oles!!

In true Cinderella style, she lost her shoe, and I had to snap a picture!!

Sundays are also for all the naps!!
my little snuggle bug!

Then we ran to the grocery store while Joe had a meeting & the boys had children's choir!

We ended our night laughing at all the Snapchat fun.

And Carson's little friend from NC called him up, and y'all they are the SWEETEST!!!
I can't even deal with the sweetness. It was completely supervised, and there was just so much giggling! Oh Kylee, we heart you so much, sweet girl!

We hope your Monday is great. We only have 4 days this week, and then we are all about us some Spring Break!

Let's do this!

Friday Favorites: {3.16.2018}

What a good week it's been, and it's not even our Spring Break yet!!

Anyone else out there having a great week?!

Today I'm linking up with AndreaNarciErika for their weekly edition of Friday Favorites!

{Snow Days}

We had a couple of days this week with snow flurries, and on Wednesday it caused the boys to be out of school. This mama was excited to have a day off from that dang car line, and the boys were excited about pjs all day!

Just because it's snowing & an earmuff headband is needed doesn't mean you should ever be without your favorite bow, right?!
She totally plans her outfits around her bows, and I don't even care!

Funny story...
We did venture out (Thanks 4-wheel drive) to my grandparent's house, and when Carson got out, he completely slipped on the ice. The only thing he hurt were his ribs from laughing so much, and this mama didn't miss the opportunity to snap a picture of his handprints in the ice.
I think this may have been our last snow day, and we so enjoyed it!


I know I've talked about this little chain of deliciousness before, but we stopped there yesterday because my mom really wanted a sweet tea. She had a little procedure this week, and she's still recovering. The kiddos and I happily picked her up a sweet tea & a couple of drinks for my crew. 
Give me all the Peachy Sprite & this silly boy!

{InstaStory Quizzes}

Anyone else out there just loving all these quick little quizzes?!
I woke up early yesterday, & after my devotional time, I so did a couple.

So much fun!

{5-Year Physicals}

Last week I shared here that we registered Nataleigh for Kindergarten. This week she had her big 5-year check-up, and all went well.
No tears were shed, and she was just a delight!
She's a petite little thing. She's in the 14% for weight, and she had a 'big' growth spurt in her height. She's in the 35%. This appointment just made her even more excited about Kindergarten!!


Today is my precious Mother-In-Law's birthday. She's strong, smart, and just the fiestiest PW (preacher's wife) I've ever known. I'm thankful for the way she loves her kids (all of us), her grandparents, and her Savior. She's truly a special woman, and I'm so blessed!

We love you so much.
(Jojo, Britt, Stephen, Carson, & Nataleigh)

This weekend we were supposed to have all the plans, however, our weekend has opened up nicely. We are sure to still have a lot of fun, but I'm looking forward to spending so much time with my favorites!

Happy Friday, friends!
