On My Mind Monday

Oh my good gracious last week was bananas! I am so sorry for the lack of posting!! According to the “rules of blogging”, posts need to be regular, organized and predictable…but as much as I am trying to follow the rules, I am also keeping it very real with you all.

I am a mom first, always. And to know me well is to know that I am as far from type A as one can get…so when we have weeks that are busy or leaving town or sick kids or holidays, I make no promises when it comes to posts ;-P I so really appreciate anyone and everyone who visits GrowingUpGill.com. Truly!  This blogging has been the outlet I didn’t realize I need. So thank you for hanging in there with me! Now, on to more pressing things…

First, we spend the weekend in Kansas visiting my sister and grandparents and aunt and uncle and cousins! We had a big reason to celebrate, as my grandpa just turned 90!!!  How amazing {and happy} does he and my Grandma look? We had a big and loud dinner at Shadow Glen county club…and to say the setting was beautiful is an understatement!

Earlier in the weekend, we hit up the Kansas City Zoo.  If you ever get the chance to go, DO!! It was only my second time there and I am IN LOVE. We went during the day on Friday and it was empty! Kids got to see every animal up close and personally! The penguins were Beau’s favorite, while I think Stella like the carousel and Grant liked the warthogs…I am kidding…they were super smelly and rolling in mud though which the kids thought was funny.  This zoo has trains and trams and sky trams and a boat! It’s easy to get around and so clean! It is one of my very top kid places in KC!

Also, super random but I came across this at whole foods and was thinking its my one shot to like LaCroix! Ha! I wish I loved all the other flavors! But I am a soda-lovvvvaaa. So, I tired this…and…omg…TERRIBLE!!!! It tastes like someone stirred a coke up with a cigarette…bahaha. seriously. its bad. If you love soda, stick to soda. Actually, stick to a half diet coke half dr. pepper and life will be rosey.

Lastly, on my mind is this election. Happy that tomorrow is the day that so much of this drama will hopefully end. Hopefully 😉

Have a great week guys!

xoxo

    I’m cracking up about the La Croix comment! I have tried to like those things but just can’t get in board either!
