Hi friends! How’s the day going? Hope you’re enjoying the afternoon. Sorry I’m a little later blogging today than usual! I ended up having to get my blood work done today instead of yesterday (long story, which involved me leaving the box which contained the vials in the Pilot’s car), so it threw the morning off a bit.

Last night, Ashley and I had a girls night while the guys hung out with the kiddos.
