Everly's Kindergarten Graduation

On Wednesday we headed to Everly's school for her Kindergarten Graduation. She has done really well this year and we are so proud of her. Justin and my sister met me at the graduation. The kids filed in (4 or 5 Kindergarten classes) and song some songs before receiving their certificates. She had been practicing the songs and it was really cute. Afterward we followed her to her class and she took a picture with her teacher and a friend before heading home to open her American Girl present. They had/still have a big sale going on so I got her some fun accessories. My sister also came over for some after lunch pool time. It was a good morning. It also worked out that my Dad was in town for work so that afternoon we met him for dinner. He had a little present for Everly and even picked up a Moana beach ball for Aspen. It was good to see him because today is actually his 60th birthday so we were able to give him his birthday present. He said he is going to be able to go back to NY to see his family this weekend so that should be good. It was good to see him and wish him a Happy Birthday! Here is a little video of the graduation and some pictures.

Weekend in Review

Last weekend was filled with lots of activities. I burned a lot of calories, that's for sure. Friday night I had a soccer game so I headed out there shortly after getting home and eating dinner. I am really like the outdoor 6 v 6 coed better than indoor and it is also cheaper. I stopped by my mom's house that night after my game because they had to put down her Golden Retriever who was a couple days shy of 9 years old. She had been having health problems for a while and was no longer getting up or eating. Sad, but glad she is no longer in pain.

Saturday morning I met my sister for a quick 5 mile run before I headed to take Everly to her last soccer tryout. We decided to keep her at CCV this next upcoming year and start her in the Integra program. It is close to home, not terribly expensive, and she will be playing with girls that are better than her so hopefully she learns from them. Saturday night we met everyone at Scottsdale Quarter for some splashed time. Sunday morning we got up super early to hike over in east Scottsdale at Tom's Thumb. My mom, 2 of my sisters, my sister and law and her friend all went. It was a great hike and we messed around and took some pictures before heading back. Sunday afternoon Justin was working on building my sister's table so I took the girl's to the park and then Everly went swimming in the afternoon. Pool weather is officially here. We went to my sister's for dinner Sunday night for a great end to the weekend!

Sephora Play: May 2017

My May Sephora Play! box came this weekend which means it was a good day. It was the 1st anniversary of the Sephora Play! program and so it came in a cute clear bag. I was super excited to get a Tata Harper product in this month's bag because they used some of that on my skin once while I got my makeup done and it is really nice and the brand is natural and non-toxic. The product in this box was the Tata Harper resurfacing mask which sounds amazing. I love masking. This month also came with a good sized sample of Christophe Robin's Cleansing Purifying Scrub with sea salt for your hair. I am excited to try this because I know I don't take good enough care of my hair. The May box came with the Trestique Highlight & Perfect Multipurpose stick which I used this morning. It is super creamy and very pretty. I was also really excited to see a MILK product in this month's box. The blur stick looks awesome for under foundation. The GrandLips lip plumper looks really cool too because you can combine it with other products to help hydrate your lips. The fragrance sample this month is Nest Black Tulip which I have tried and like despite the fact that it is technically in the floral family. Still super happy with this subscription box and definitely recommend it to anyone who loves trying new makeup/skin products.

Weekend in Review: Mother's Day Edition

I had a wonderful long Mother's Day weekend. I had the day off Friday and after taking Everly to school had a nice day with just Aspen. We went to the park and ran some errands and I treated my self to a little early mother's day present. I actually legitimately needed a new running watch so I decided to just go with an apple watch. On Friday night I played a little 6 v 6 soccer game out on the practice fields at Talking Stick baseball fields and it was really fun. I am hoping to continue playing there throughout the summer because it is cheaper than indoor. Saturday morning I did an 8 mile run before we headed out to Everly's soccer tryout. It is not really a tryout because they only have enough girls to fill the team but it is a good experience for her. After soccer we got the girls stuff ready and met my sister at the splashpad. It actually wasn't too busy so it was a good way for the girls to burn some energy. We were all pretty pooped the rest of the day but I did go see Snatched with my mom. It was funny, but not as good as Trainwreck. Sunday morning I got up for a class at Orange Theory. It was a nice butt-kicking and then after I met Justin and the girls for breakfast at The Rogue Tomato. It was super yummy and Justin and the girls surprised me with a girls trip to see Britney Spears in Vegas in August with my sisters and sister-in-law. I am super excited and was totally surprised. He definitely did good! I took a nap on Sunday and then did a little later afternoon shopping with Everly before heading to my sister's for dinner Sunday night. It was a great weekend and I am ready to take this week!
