{Conversations with a Five-year old}

"I wasn't meant for messy when I was born"

Mommy : can you be quiet I can't answer you and listen to GPS at the same time
Riley: are your ears not working today ?

Mommy: We need to get our nails done again

Riley: For real

Riley: mommy you want some juice?
Mommy: no
Riley: what a fuddy duddy

Riley: can we go to the grocery store
Mommy: we have to make a list first. Your cousin is requesting chicken cordon bleu
Riley: is that food? 

{Listening to Adele}
Riley: she "set fire to the rain"
Me: yep
Riley that's crazy 

{watching back to back cleaning commercials}
Riley : no oxi clean is better so we'll see about that

You want Lysol? It keeps your family safe

Riley: How old are you mommy?
Mommy: We don't speak of it.
Riley: How old are you daddy?
Daddy: 28
Riley: That's guys are going to have white hair soon.

Our Fourth of July weekend part 1

We actually had to do fireworks a day early because of the big hurricane on the 4th. Family came to visit just in time. We had a blast watching the fireworks in Lexington. It was bittersweet because it will be our last 4th of July in Massachusetts. We've had some good memories here as a family. 

As you can see Riley went a little crazy when her papa bought her an ice cream. You'd think the kid was deprived her whole life. She was even giving this evil laugh like I'm a cartoon. She might have the same addiction that has affected her daddy his whole life. An addiction to ice cream! 
The fireworks were a blast. My youngest niece and I were pretending to be in control of them with our magic powers. Had me laughing so hard! 
Stay tuned for more of our crazy weekend !

The Graduate

 I'm so behind in blogging this! There's been so much that has gone on in the last month it's been nuts! But that's summer for you I guess.
My man graduated!!! I am so proud of him for everything he has accomplished. Just in the last year and a half alone. It's hard work juggling a full time/demanding job, family and college. But he did it, with all A's too! I married a smarty-pants that's for sure! He is proof that no matter who you are, soldier or civilian, no matter your age. If you are determined you can do anything. He's such an inspiration to me!

I didn't get to see him up close to get his degree. It decided to rain as soon as the ceremony started so we got rushed into a building on campus to watch the video streaming online. Then it stopped raining right when it was done. Of course that's just our luck. But it was an overall good day! Cheers to my man!

{copycat tuesday} Toddler edition

 I decided to switch it up for this week and let Riley take the spotlight. This little fashionista deserves it! She's such a stylish lady. Can't really say she copied it seeing how she's not on Pinterest. But It wasn't hard to find a similar outfit to hers. She's loving her little boots her daddy got her. It's all she ever wears now.

{Fashion Friday} Leopards and Skaters

Fashion Friday is here. A little late in the day but better late than never right? I must admit it's been hard for me to get back into the swing of things after all the family being here. As well as everything else going on. Which is a ton! Nothing out of the norm for an Army wife. But a lot of stuff at the same time. Thankfully summer is fast approaching and Riley will be out of school in a few weeks. Apparently this school has the longest school year ever! Not getting out til the end of June. There goes most of the summer months. I hope to get much more blogged in the coming weeks. Get back into my groove before being "lazy in the summer"  becomes my new mentality and takes me over completely.
Do any of you have the same problem towards the end of the school year? I can't be the only one.....

{conversations with a five-year old}

While all the family was visiting I overheard some pretty hilarious conversations they had with little miss Riley.

Uncle: No one watches tv during the day

Riley: Well maybe an uncle show

Uncle: An uncle show?

Riley: Yeah you're the uncle ! 

{Watching the new Cinderella preview}

Mommy: That's it? That shoe looks really uncomfortable 

Uncle: Who's going to fit into that shoe

Riley: ....Cinderella 

Uncle: Relax were on vacation 

Riley: Yeah were on vacation man relax 

Grandpa : when my checker gets to your side You say "king me"

Riley: and you say queen me!
