What a Week

Whew....what a week.  
First of all, thanks to everyone for making my birthday and my week so sweet.  It was a fun and special day!  Our dear friends are temporary living with us during a transition time and they so graciously agreed to keep Cilla over night so Flint and I got a quite dinner out, ice cream and a room at a local hotel!  Thanks Josh and Kelli!  Thanks so much for the greatest birthday gift of all!  Unfortunately, I didn't get any pictures!  I was enjoying my peaceful, quite time so much, I didn't even think about it!   
Flint was in Birmingham for SEC Media Days all week so it always more of a challenge and exhausting parenting solo.  But, my parents jumped right in and were a huge help!
Here is a little of what Flint was up to this week.....

Check out HolyTurf for more football and media day coverage!
We almost started our weekend with a trip to the ER after Cilla took a dive out of her crib.  Luckily, she was alright.  After the doctor agreed to see her at the Pediatric Clinic, this momma was reassured that things were okay and we could get on with our weekend.
Cilla and I were so ready for daddy to be home.  We had a fun-filled Saturday as a family.  We started our day off at Rick's for donuts.  Now that is a good start to the day!!!  It was a low key day, but nice to all be together.
This girl loved her chocolate covered donut!!!

I have so much more to catch up on.  I have several projects and fun pictures to share and I have loads of laundry to fold and some house work to catch up on.  But, I think I might just go put my feet up and close my eyes!
This is just one of the 354 reasons I am so worn out...
I was making a fruit pizza this morning and when I turned my back to get a banana Cilla dumped a package of Chipotle Cheddar Tortilla Strips right smack dab in the middle!  Yum!  Further proving you literally can't turn your back when you have a two year old!  
But, I would not trade it for the world!

I'm pretty jealous of Holy Turf's exciting week! Countdown is on! I'm SO excited about football season that I started looking at game day outfits this week. Priorities! :)
Oh Cilla, you little dare-devil! Don't they always do the craziest things when you are parenting alone? Brody does!
And yum for a a Mexican fruit pizza! Ha! She's hilarious!!

Poor Cilla!! I'm sure that that scared you half to death. SO thankful she was okay. : ) {If you decide to do your blank wall with empty frames, let me know! I'd love to see how yours turns out!} Have a great week! : )

Your fruit pizza cracked me up! That would totally happen at my house.

And I've had several crib divers before. I'm glad your little girl is OK.

I think I need a donut. :)

Not for sure if I would like your recipe for fruit You really never know what a two year old will do.
