So I’ve kind of neglected this little ol’ blog the past couple of weeks…too much summer fun to be had, I suppose! We’re crossing things off of our bucket list left and right, and having a great time doing it. So instead of a real, thought-out blog post for you today…I’ve just got the first 5 random things that come to my head. Aren’t you excited?!? 😉
Speaking of our summer bucket list, we finally got a slip n slide and put it to good use yesterday! My sister’s kids and Arden played on it for a solid TWO hours. We also got some of these Zuru water balloons, which were a hit. Whoever invented them…genius!
Since Nash napped through the party, we let him have his turn after dinner last night. He scooted down a few times, but was really most interested in the hose…and breaking a record for heaviest diaper. Ha!
Anybody have Netflix series recommendations? We started The Killings the other night…and as much as I love a good murder mystery, I can’t handle ones where kids are involved. Nope…just can’t. So I’d love to hear what your favorites are!
Do you follow @farmhouseforfour on Insta? One of my VERY faves…and I’m sure you can see why. I mean, how do I replicate this in Kansas?
Arden, my picky eater, has suddenly decided that she’s not really a berry lover. (Say what?!) So the other day at lunch I told her she needed to eat one blackberry, one blueberry, and one raspberry before she could get down and play. She looked at me with a serious look and said, “okay, but it’s gonna take me awhile to pick all the little hairs off of this raspberry!”
One for the quote book, for sure!
I have a confession…I just started using Snapchat in last couple months. I know, I know…old lady alert! I’ve had an account forever, but felt way too overwhelmed (also OLD) when I tried to figure it all out. Then my girlfriends in Texas gave me a crash course on our girls weekend…and I’ve been kind of hooked ever since. And my kids…they live for the selfie filters…
My name is vanessacalcara…let’s be friends!
Cheers to a great weekend!!
Oh Nash, you are pretty!!!!!! And that house, I know if anyone can make it happen, it’s you! 🙂
Happy weekend, my friend!
I’ve had snapchat for a while and never figured it out. But then yesterday our babysitter showed carter the different filters and he loved it. So we spent a good 20 minutes taking selfies and trying to figure it out!
They are too cute! I love that insta account too! I’m on snapchat too but still can’t figure it out!

Start watching Bloodline on Netflix. I also loved Grace & Frankie a ton.
Mike and I loved Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt 🙂 I can’t watch anything sad that has to do with kids, either!
Ha! It took me forever to figure out snapchat too! My daughter is obsessed now!
I’m currently finishing Parenthood on Netflix- such a great show of you haven’t seen it!
I added you on snap chat even though I don’t use it that often! We love the filters too. I am watching Pretty Little Liars on Netflix!

Haha I think all kids love those snapchat filters. Mason’s favorite is the puppy, I’m so happy that one is always on there. That picture of Nash in the wet diaper is hilarious! Those things hold. So. Much. Liquid!
That snap filter looks good on Nash! And that house is stunning. Dream.

We just started Turn: Washington’s Spies on Netflix and Brad and I both are so into it.
White Collar. Husband and I both love it.
Love the Nash snapchat. I don’t actually use my SC account, I just use the filters for fun, haha. The bumble bee one today was so funny…the voice was making us laugh so hard. We have binged a bunch of shows. We just finished Bloodline. It was a little dark for me, but I got into it after three episodes or so. Let me know if you find anything good.
Anthony and I are currently hooked on How To Get Away with Murder! Y’all should check it out!
I want to get my son a slip n slide so bad! Iceberg seeing everyone playing but drought in California means no grass 🙁 We are watching Peaky Blinders in Netflix. I didn’t think I would like it but it has enough good drama to keep me hooked. You should give it a try!
Aw man, Nash is VERY pretty! I just can’t get into Snapchat x
Just added you on snap! Prepare to be riveted by my footage :p
I wasn’t following that IG account but now I am. LOVE that farmhouse style! I was clearly meant to live somewhere else… maybe Waco so Chip and JoJo can makeover a house for me?? LOL.
Just added you on snapchat also!
Hope you’re having a good weekend!

You MUST watch Parenthood if you haven’t seen it already! Hubs and I binge-watched the entire six seasons last summer and it was incredible! It is now right up there with my favorite shows of all time! You will want to be a Braverman, that’s for sure!
I just wrote about how I couldn’t figure out Snapchat!!! I had to look up a youtube video and ask my younger sisters how to use it. (eye roll) Glad I’m not the only one!
