This is life, kid messes are what our days are filled with. You should see their rooms (this is the guest room/playroom), it’s ten times worse!

This week’s learned, links, and thankfulness…

Thankful for being able to borrow the BFF’s car this week. It’s back to sharing for the next two week until my brother leaves for a 2 week trip, and we can borrow his car.

Thankful at how the big girls help out around the house.

I like how my friend Nathalie described parenting in this ig post… the highs are truly high and the lows are rock bottom. It really does feel like that and I definitely hit both points multiple times this week.

We are definitely making this.

This vegan mac and cheese looks amazing, but one cup of nuts is 800 calories! Oye! I was going to make it for dinner club on Thursday, but Ben said he wouldn’t eat it because it would be too high in fat. Ha! I scrapped that idea and did vegan tacos instead.

I like this outfit and now want to sew a denim crop top like this.

Misha Lulu is having a sale. Check it out here

We finished watching The Walking Dead last night and I’m satisfied with the season finale. I can’t wait until 24 comes back this summer; it’s my ultimate favorite show! And oh Scandal is so good. #teamjake

The funniest thing I heard this week… True said, “Mommy, we are playing betray My Little Ponies. It’s when they betray each other.” SAY WHAT?!!! I texted Ben what they said right away, and he said, “Where did they learn this stuff?!!” I don’t think it’s from us, at least I hope not.

If you want to follow me along on Instagram, look up @rubyellenbratcher. It’s so fun to look at little squares of the parts of people’s life (the parts they want to share of it anyway).

Today is for going through some of our backyard to-do list, and the afternoon will be for a family adventure. Happy Saturday friends! Also, I have big news to share Monday, so don’t forget to check back!

    This made me giggle – one of my sons had a friend over today and I could hear this banging from his room. Peeped in and they were throwing things all around, but had a wonderful time doing it. I let them continue, though said to my son; “You DO know what you have to do afterwards, right”..? Apparently it was worth it since he cleaned up his room without complaining. 🙂

    Oh my gosh, I was really impressed with the way the walking dead ended as well! What an amazing show, this summer is going to seem so long….can’t wait for next season!

    Thanks for being real – showcasing a messy home, parenting struggles, and car breakdowns. It’s real life. But at least you make it look pretty. 🙂
