IMG_8176IMG_8182Mother’s Day is quickly approaching and as I write this post I’ve got a handsome little boy lining his hot wheels up around my laptop as I type.. Being a mama. Oh how I love it so very much. Each and every day I thank the good Lord for blessing me to be the mama of such a sweet and handsome little man. Seriously how did I get so lucky?! Everyday is Mother’s Day for me. Asher always knows how to brighten my day!

The weather has finally started warming up here in North Dakota and this weekend daddy pulled Asher’s Little Tikes Cozy Cottage out of his room and set it up outside. I’m always looking for the best toys that are super functional and of course FUN. This cozy cottage kept Asher very entertained this past winter. We had it set up in his room and we spent many days playing house. When I told him we were going to set it up outside he was overjoyed with excitement! “My house going outside?!” he said. We had it apart, outside, and set back up in about 15 minutes. Grandma picked him up a chair for inside his house, so when we stopped at Ikea a few weekends ago, I picked him up one for outside.IMG_8177IMG_8178Asher spent hours playing outside in his Cozy Cottage and Jacob and I were able to knockout some long, overdue garage organizing. Jacob works most weekends and we rarely get an afternoon with him so having him home was so great!  We cooled off with cherry popsicles and headed back inside for a nap. I love that this little playhouse is so functional. It’s super easy to put together, perfect for indoors or out, and so interactive. When playing in his house Asher will usually park his car on the side and I hear him saying things like “I’m home kids” or “Hello sir, how may I help you?” It seriously makes my heart burst. I love how realistic this cottage is! There’s a spot for a flag, windows with cute little shutters, a mailbox, and plenty of room inside for Asher to move around in. He will play in his Cozy Cottage for hours, which gives me the opportunity to relax, catch up on house or yard work, and get dinner on the table. A sweet little gift all in itself! IMG_8191IMG_8186

It’s been almost a month since my last post and I apologize.. Lately I just haven’t been inspired and have had so much going on. I started this little blog of mine as a creative outlet and I want it to be that. I don’t want to bore you with blah posts just to “post” so I will continue to write when I’m feeling creative…. Asher and I took a quick trip to Missouri a few weeks ago and had such a great time. Our trips there are never long enough. Here are a few of my favorite photos I snapped while I was there. These are all off of my phone (sorry). I failed to remember to bring my camera when I went! Oops!
