Weekend Wrap-Up

Yesterday, I shared just a few of the ways I try to make this life & my jobs work, and I what I often forget is that I'm quite the "momager" for my 3 busy kids. This weekend, like most, was super busy, and we spent it together..just like I like it!
We sent these two cuties off to school sporting their green.

Then Joe & I surprised Nataleigh with a trip to the movies to see....
And y'all it was better than I could have ever imagined.
I seriously loved it.
 Popcorn + Princess Movie + her blanket = perfection
Seriously!! We had a blast together watching Mama's & Nataleigh's favorite princess. 
We've been watching the original version in our car for the past week plus, so she was basically acting it out in her seat the entire time, and even though this film was shrouded by controversy, it was well-worth every minute and penny spent together. She's such a smart child. She got the important parts of the film, and then Joe & I were able to use it to share God's great love with her. She told me, "Mommy, I bet Gaston doesn't love Jesus because he is mean & lies." She gets what is important. She also said that she wants to be just like Belle when she grows up..smart & kind. You can find sin and ugliness everywhere, even within the church itself, but we are choosing to teach our kids to look for the moments that they can be Jesus to someone who needs Him. I've had some negative feedback about seeing this film, and I've chosen to respond to hatred because I took my daughter to a movie about a smart, strong, kind princess with kindness. If you disagree with our parenting decision, that is fine, but remember that these are our kids & we are doing what we deem to be best for them...not you.
Later we stopped by another favorite Tri-Cities spot, Blackbird Bakery, for a couple of goodies...St. Patty's donuts!!
By the way how perfect was Riding Bikes Pearl for a St. Patty's/Beauty and the Beast day?!
It has blue and yellow roses with green sprinkled through, and we topped her outfit off with a bow from One Stop Bow Shop. I searched all week for an outfit for our day, and I was disappointed with what I found, but she noticed that one of Belle's outfits looked a whole lot like her outfit.

All that girliness from Friday was in stark contrast to the boys' day of Saturday.
 Stephen played in his last tournament of the season! 
9 hours with some of the most fun, loud mamas and kiddos!
Nothing better than ending the season with a championship.
I want to take a quick second to brag on Stephen a bit. 
The boy played and practiced his little heart out this season. This was definitely a season of growth for this boy. He played up on a 4th grade team, and while he wasn't always the best player on the court, there were very few minutes where a kid had more heart than Stephen. He played every minute at 100%, and I couldn't have been prouder. He became a smart, strong, confident player out there in a mere few months. I cannot wait to see where he goes with this sport he loves so much.

 Sundays are for church and quick photo sessions outside of the church, yet this Sunday both boys jetted inside before I could snap their picture.
This was a steal of a dress that my Mother-In-Law found Nataleigh.
She found it for a couple of dollars at the Goodwill in Asheville, NC. It's a Ralph Lauren wrap dress that I layered over THIS tutu dress {sale alert}!!
 We begin every Sunday morning service at Hickory Tree Union Church with alter prayers corporately, and I loved seeing my sweet girl down there praying with her friends.
 This Sunday called for Panda Express orange chicken & basketball!
And then I spent the rest of my weekend organizing my tags, hangers, and clothes for the Tri-Cities Upscale Affordable Consignment Sale. Let's all just say a quick prayer that everything sells!!

Our weekend was so good, and I really couldn't have asked for a better last winter weekend!
Happy Spring y'all!
