May Date Nights

We have been going strong with date night 11 months now! I can't believe it's almost been a year! We have obviously gone on dates our whole marriage, but we were intentional about having a date night a week the day our son was born. It has honestly been the best thing ever! It's never too late to start!

Onto May...

May 4th: We were actually leaving for Kansas on May 4th to visit my grandparents, so we had our date day on the 3rd. We went downtown Tulsa on Wednesday for lunch because they have food truck Wednesdays. It was quite cold that day, but we battled it out anyway. Our favorite couple food trucks weren't there, so we ventured out and tried something new.






May 11th: We ended up moving this date night to Friday, the 12th, that week because my Mother's Day gift from Brooks Trevor was a date night to Pinot's Palette.






May 18th: We had a lazy night in. We have been watching the show Sherlock on Netflix and so all we wanted to do was lay in bed, relax and watch Sherlock. So, that is what we did. We were gone almost every night that week and Trevor was leaving that weekend to go to a bachelor party, so we were both great with a night in.

May 25th: We were both exhausted at the end of the day (it was a looooong day), so we moved our date night to Friday night, the 26th. We went to our house and found specific bible verses to write in each room of our home. We made the verses specific to go along with each room in our home. I think it will always be a great reminder to keep our marriage a priority, to raise our kids in a Godly home and to have hospitality to anyone who enters our home.





It's been a great month. We were able to leave town a couple times this month for different things, we had a lot of progress on the house, which is exciting, we are kind of wrapping up our season with Armor (that's for a different post) and we are loving the nice weather so we can be outside. I'm excited for some swimming dates coming soon!

Happy Dating...

1st Mother's Day

I can't say I really understood what all my mom did for me throughout the years until I became a mom myself. Being a mom is truly a selfless act, but it is SOOOO worth it! Thank you mom for all you have done and continue to do for me! LOVE YOU!

My mom was actually out of town for the weekend, so we haven't gotten to celebrate with her yet. But, we will make up for that this week.

I was scheduled to sing at church all day Sunday, so Trevor was sweet and we hung out all day Saturday in honor of Mother's Day. We didn't do anything extravagant, but I enjoyed the day just being together as a family. We went to the Rooster Day parade and then walked around the Rooster Day festival. Trevor took me to lunch at my favorite place, McAlister's. We went up to the hospital to see a friend who just had a baby. SUCH A CUTIE! We went to church together and supported our friends in dedicating their baby. It was really nice attending church together. I'm usually on stage during worship and then join Trevor after, but it was really nice to stand together during worship. And then we went home and cooked dinner together. It was a great day in my book!


Boogie almost slept through the whole parade. The drum line in the marching band woke him up. 



SO CUTE!

When I got home, I had a surprise delivery from my brother and sister-in-law! So sweet!!! They are in full bloom right now at my house!

On Sunday I was at church from 7-7 but I did have a small break for lunch. I went home and we ate lunch with Trevor's family. Shout out to the best mother-in-law a girl could ask for! We are currently invading her home with a baby and two dogs and she is still nice to us! Haha! But seriously, I have the best mother-in-law who raised an amazing man that I call my husband!

Trevor/Brooks surprised me with a couple gifts that were so thoughtful and the CUTEST cards! I'm one lucky gal to have these two in my life! When I got home at the end of the day Trevor had cooked me an amazing dinner. He honestly slaved in the kitchen for over an hour preparing this meal and it was DELICIOUS! 


Thank you Jesus for entrusting me with this sweet baby (and another one on the way) so that I can have the name "mom." It's the BEST job I will ever have!

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to all the moms out there!!

Trevor's Birthday Continues in KANSAS!

Awhile back I asked Trevor what he wanted for his birthday this year. We were in St. Thomas for my birthday and that's hard to beat, so I wanted Trevor to get something nice too! He mentioned that he wanted to go turkey hunting with my cousin's husband in Kansas. Trevor's only been turkey hunting one other time and he really enjoys doing new things and hunting is usually at the top of his list. So, I called my cousin and my grandma and we made plans. We decided to go this past weekend because Trevor's birthday was the 27th, my grandma's birthday was the 6th and my cousin was the 7th, so we had a triple birthday celebration!

We left Thursday night really late after our gender reveal with hopes that Brooks would sleep the whole way. Thankfully, he did. He's always done really well in the car. However, once we got to my grandma's house, which was around 2am, Brooks did not want to sleep in the room we prepared for him. We tried feeding him a small bottle, rocking him, reading him a story and nothing was working. So, he joined us in our room for the night. We have never done that before. Brooks has never once slept with us, so I was a little skeptical if that would even work for the night, but it did! He slept great! (And thankfully, we didn't start a bad habit either!)
So precious!!!

They slept in 'til 9:30!!! 
We didn't really have an agenda for the weekend other than Trevor was going to devote most of his time to turkey hunting and we were going to have a birthday celebration. 

He already loves GG's cooking!

I'm positive they will have a special bond!

Friday evening the guys went turkey hunting and had a successful evening! They each got one!







The guys went hunting on Saturday morning, but didn't have much luck in getting one. While they were out hunting, we stayed at grandma's and explored.

Very curious about the central vacuum unit. He was able to open it and put his hand up next to it, but wasn't really a fan of it. 

Who needs toys when you have a tupperware drawer!

GG's are the best!
That evening we had our party! We were celebrating Trevor's birthday, my grandma's birthday and my cousin's birthday and that my grandpa was getting to go home from the hospital on Monday!



This is the BEST picture!!!! :)
It's not too often you see a couple still in love after all these years!!!
Melt my heart!!!

He enjoyed playing in the fountain
He was SOAKED at the end of the evening!
Sunday morning was their last chance to get another turkey because we were leaving that afternoon. Thankfully they had a great time AND got another turkey.
I'd say he had a great birthday trip!
So thankful for my cousins and my aunt Lorri who loved on my baby all weekend!!!! They are the BEST!
 We had such a great time relaxing, playing with Brooks, celebrating and seeing family! Until next time!
