"We must take adventures in order to know where we truly belong." 🗺 ---------------------------------------------
Hanging out in Waco today just taking in the sights. Enjoying the incredible weather and beautiful architecture of the Texas town. 🌁 --------------------------------------------- Looking forward to visiting the Magnolia Silos tomorrow and simply appreciating the family time. ❤

These are the days we live for. ----------------------------------------------- After a "romantic dinner" by fairy lights that the girls put together, we enjoyed s'mores on the patio. 🍫 ----------------------------------------------- These are the moments for which we live. ❤

AD: When I started this blog 10 years ago, I really never thought I would make a business out of it. Honestly, I didn't really put much thought into it. I was looking for a place to share some thoughts and ideas on how we lived—on a pretty meager income. The name? Family of 6 on $26K/Year.
---------------------------------------------------- I wish someone had told me the importance of a good blog name as well as how to name your blog. #DomainME is a top-level domain provider, and the .ME extension offers the flexibility to create clever, memorable online destinations. I shared four helpful factors to consider when naming your blog #ontheblog. http://bit.ly/2p3XNYq

AD: Each summer, parents and teachers alike try to find a solution for the summer slide. You know the one. That long slope where most students lose approximately two months of grade level equivalency in math, and many also lose reading achievement, over the summer. It's a slippery slope parents have tried to manage for years. ----------------------------------------------- Now, #1 bestselling #BrainQuest brand, has an effective new tool to prevent the summer slide: Summer Brain Quest from @WorkmanPub. Find out more about it + how to win a set for your student on the blog! #giveaway #ontheblog http://bit.ly/2ocpwHs

When your room is right across the hall from the construction zone, Daddy and your sisters create a fun glamping area for you in another part of the house. ⛺️ -----------------------------
It's been a long week and after 2 nights in a hotel, the girls wanted to come back home. With her room right across from the bathroom currently being treated for mold (in our brand new house), she was given another room to sleep in. 😴

AD: Finishing up a whirlwind 24 hours in NYC for the Health & Beauty Innovation Event with @cvspharmacy. ❤ ----------------------------
Tons of great new products coming the your local CVS store over the next few months! From beauty to food to medicine, there's plenty you won't want to miss. 💊 #discoverCVS

"I look out the window and I see the lights and the skyline and the people on the street rushing around looking for action, love, and the world’s greatest chocolate chip cookie, and my heart does a little dance." -Nora Ephron 🍪 --------------------------------
Trading in the suburban life for a quick stay in New York City with @CVSPharmacy #discoverCVS 🗽

It's the moments in between that seem to be the best ones. ❤ -------------------------------
Trying to get all three of them to look straight, stand up tall, and simply smile can be a chore. But, watching them love each other in the candid moments between comes easy. 🙅🏻🙆🏻🙋🏻 Happy Easter! 🐣

My oldest daughter walked outside and exclaimed, "He bought you a saw?!" He did! I have several projects planned. 🛠 -----------------------------
This first one seems to tie in the nautical theme of our living room perfectly. We see it as a play on "our" last name and it's just fun. 🚢 -----------------------------"We have this hope as an anchor for the soul... firm & secure." Hebrews 6:19 ⚓️

No one seems to push our buttons more than the people closest to us. They can drive us mad while, at the same time, keep us sane. They’re the cheese to our macaroni. The one person we could never live without. And for these reasons, we want to ensure they’re around forever. ---------------------------------------------------- This is why we must remind them to stay safe behind the wheel. ---------------------------------------------------- According to @ATT research, 57% of people are more likely to stop driving distracted if a friend or passenger pressures them to. That means half of people are just waiting for someone to tell them to stop! ----------------------------------------------------
Who is your better half? How do you hold them accountable? ---------------------------------------------------- There’s no better time than now to #TagYourHalf on social media. #ad http://bit.ly/2o1AeLI

As we sat down and looked at all of the design choices, we were able to find that many of the colors and options we wanted were “Level 1” items. This meant we didn’t have to pay a premium for the options we chose. But, there were some things we wanted that were (to us) worth the upgrade. -------------------------------
Stop by the blog to see where we decided to splurge and get the things we really wanted! ❤

This guy slept in our bathroom at the old house. He seemed to like the tile floors. But, after trying a couple different places in the new house, he seems to have decided that my side of the bed is most comfy. 🛌
