On the Side - March


Happy spring!  Spring is by FAR my favorite season, and I'm so glad that we welcomed it yesterday.  Now if mother nature would just get with the program and give us some spring-like temps, I'll be even happier.  And yes, I live in Georgia and am complaining about the cold.  I'm a southerner through and through.


The babies are growing like weeds, and we just had their 2 month pediatrician's appointment.  They are exactly the same weight and height, and their heads are only 0.5 centimeters apart.  Twins indeed!


Most notably this month, we made the trek to my hometown of McDonough, Georgia to introduce the babies to my grandpa.  Pop was tickled to death to meet them, and we had a great time visiting with family.  Caroline and Smith both love seeing their cousins as well.


The highlight of any trip to Pop's is riding in the golf cart with Uncle Paul and Uncle Thomas  :).


We had family pictures taken by the awesomely talented Danielle Bryson (if you live in Georgia or South Carolina, check her out - she's amazing!).  I am so in love with these photos.


This one is my favorite.  We all seem very peaceful and idyllic, but let me be clear when I tell you that chaos normally reigns in our house these days :)


We also celebrated my birthday on March 2nd.  It was a pretty awesome day - a giant iced coffee, cookie cake, a sushi lunch, and a three hour nap.  That's all it takes to make me feel happy and special.  Caroline and Smith had sushi for the first time, and they both loved it - especially using the chop sticks.


And finally, I'll share this picture.  I swear it makes me smile every time I see it.  I just hope they always love each other this much.

And now for a few things I've been loving lately...

Nashville is definitely my guilty-pleasure tv show these days.  I just wish they showed new episodes every week.  There hasn't been a new one if a few weeks now; I'm going through withdrawals!  And the male eye candy isn't too shabby, FYI.

I've had the Urban Decay Naked palette for almost a year now, and I recently splurged on the Naked 2.  I love it!  They are both great, but I think I prefer this one - the colors are more grayish and cooler, which works better with my skin tone.

Very Jane is a daily deal site, specifically for women.  They feature deals for cute jewelry, clothes, stuff for kids, home decor, etc.  I've ordered quite a few things from them over the past few weeks.  It's becoming a problem...

Green smoothies.  I've been making a point to drink one every day.  My favorite combo right now is frozen mango, banana, pineapple, kale, and a little orange juice.  Sometimes I make them "ungreen" by adding frozen berries.  Caroline loves to help make them, and she and Smith both love drinking them as well.

Justin Timberlake.  Enough said.

That family picture is so precious! And I don't think Nashville has new episodes till next month--such a bummer!

Love the pics of your children. They are beautiful. I have 5 year old twin grandsons and we have a picture of them at about that age nose to nose holding hands. They still love each other and hug each other all the time! Lynne in SC

Beautiful pics. If the twins' room is always that clean then you will be promoted to superhero status. :)

Rachel said...

Those picture are amazing! You have pretty cute subjects to begin with, though. :)

I love this feature up I are doing. It's always fun to see what others love or are into.

Already looked up Very Jane and I'm pretty sure Adam isn't going to be happy with my new find.

I like watching Nashville while I wash bottles, so I am annoyed that they are slow with the new episodes. Not gonna lie, my initial reason for watching was just to have fun recognizing locations, but now I enjoy the show as well.

Also, I subscribe to the VeryJane email list, but have yet to take the plunge and purchase anything. Good to hear a positive review!
