Our Week In Pictures // and My Monday Mantra

March 27, 2017 in #MomLife,Akron,beer,busy mom,children,coffee,explore locally,mantra,mommyhood,Ohio,pictures

Shame on me — I’m a bad, bad, blogger! I’ve been doing a fairly decent job of getting lots of sleep + snuggling my babies. So basially I had the best excuses ever.

Oh, and I worked — a LOT.

But here are the exciting parts of our week, as told by pictures:

[a trip to the akron zoo to see the ‘fla-mangoes!’]

[visited the new local craft brewery, HiHo]

[ari’s first t-ball practice]

[a pizza birthday party with friends]

[lots of playing]

[a teensy bit of work, a lot of coffee from akron coffee roasters]

[miss bea’s first taste of ice cream, courtesy of chill artisan ice cream]

Not pictured: A low-grade fever from one silly toddler; loads and loads of unfolded laundry; and lots of chaos. Like every week, our days were filled with lots of ups and even more downs. But I’m trying to keep on the brightside. And this upcoming week is no different. Well, it’s a little different because Ari is on Spring break — and that means I’m taking a little time off to do a few special things with the kiddos!

And here’s my Mantra for the week:

Happy Monday, friends! Find some joy by doing little things! xo

Love “flamangoes”. And amen to that mantra. Why is that such a struggle for us mamas and so hard for other people to understand? :/

I love the pics and the mantra.

What a fun way to share your week! I love the picture of your daughter eating ice cream! She looks so happy!

I’m in OH too and we were able to get out a bit this weekend. I am looking forward to warmer weather – with no rain! – so we can spend more time outside.

This is such a good idea, your week in pictures! Looks like it was such a good one too! Kids are precious 🙂


Krysten March 27, 2017 at 2:48 pm

I am all for the craft brewery and the ice cream. Beer and ice cream, two of my favorite things! 😛


Elizabeth Peace March 27, 2017 at 3:54 pm

awwwwww what a fun week for the kiddos!


Vivianna March 27, 2017 at 7:22 pm

Looks like fun all around, minus the fever!


Kate March 27, 2017 at 9:13 pm

I’ve heard good things about HiHo! Did you like it? Should we go together sometime when I come home?!


JeeYoung March 27, 2017 at 10:00 pm

What a fun week! ICE CREAM YUM!


Lisa Grooms March 28, 2017 at 12:05 am

Yes! I’ve been in that spot too! Love your mantra!


Hanna March 28, 2017 at 8:40 am

Looks like a great week! I’m totally wishing it was warm enough to go to the zoo here!


Kennedy Lazar March 28, 2017 at 11:33 am

Looks like such a fun week! Ice cream is my fav! Cute kiddos


Sane Mama March 28, 2017 at 11:57 am

Great family shots and I love your motto. As mom, it’s so easy to get caught up in what everyone else needs instead of what is best for you.


Lisa March 28, 2017 at 12:29 pm

Sounds like an amazing week!! Sometimes we need to switch it up!


Dara March 28, 2017 at 1:21 pm

Looks great to me, I love the zoo and craft breweries are fun too! Sorry about the fever though.


Jessica March 28, 2017 at 2:13 pm

What a fun week! I’m loving being outside more now that the weather is warming up.


Lisa Clark March 28, 2017 at 5:18 pm

Your week looks like it was so much fun. It makes me think of all the great little moments I have that sometimes go overlooked. I should start doing something similar, even if I only keep it for family use. 🙂

Looks like you had a great week! We get to go to the zoo in a few weeks!

any week that includes pizza, the zoo and ice cream is a win in my book!


Gillian March 29, 2017 at 3:06 pm

Oh I love this little glimpse into your week! I’m also a bad-bad blogger lately. Ha!

Looks like a fabulous week! I can’t wait to get to the zoo someday soon!
