It's the Little Things // 17

Y’all remember this past Friday I talked about the awesome Memorial Day weekend we had planned (Read here) complete with lots ‘O fun and a trip to the water park?

Yeah…that didn’t happen.

What did happen was an ear infection for Chickie complete with 103.8 temps, my car was broken into, and we were stuck at home all weekend…mostly watching Star Wars…

BUT – it’s all good, friends. We were still able to enjoy a couple of days with my parents and my sister Jordan who swung into town on their way back from a trip to Savannah and by Monday, we were able to get out a little bit. 
{This is how Chickie likes to "smile" lately. This kid...}
 Being with my family is always a good time and a great reminder that while having big plans is fun, it’s truly the little things that mean so much. 

Oh - And this. Who knew Mr. Potato Head's glasses could be used in so many fun ways!
{How you doin?}

Linking up with Ashley from Words on Waverly! Join in on the fun!

  1. Oh gee what a fun twist of events! What a lovely and understated smile though =)

    1. btw I went to click your twitter and pinterest social media buttons on your side and they say they don't exist..just fyi!

  2. The ear infection was a sign you shouldn't water park it without me.

    But in all reality I hope M feels better ASAP. Ear infections and temps are no bueno.

    But her funny smile is muy bueno!

  3. What a bummer about the ear infection and car. Zero fun.
    However, loving Chickie's "smile" and the multipurpose uses of Mr. Potato Head glasses.

  4. ear infections are no fun at all! But glad she recovered enough to have fun and of course star wars is a must! LOVE that she loves that movie!! Her smile these days cracks me up - she's such a cutie!!

  5. Glad you all had fun despite the crappy circumstances. Love the glasses on kitty :)
