{Never made the blog // Volume 1 // Bday, Well Check, Cops & Kids, Father's Day, Child Dedication}

My friend Sarah has been doing these posts on "things that never made it to the blog" and I have loved reading them. Life gets away from you so quick and then blog posts keep piling up. I have so many things that never made it to the blog, but I want them to. So, I thought this would be the best way to catch up. Here is a bunch of random things that never made this blog...

{Month in numbers & One Sentence a Day // June}

I am super late posting about our June in Numbers {and everything else, thanks Photobucket!}, but better late than never, right? It has been a while since I have wrote a month in numbers post. While there is room for improvement, I did a decent job of documenting things this month. Here is a look at our month of June {2017} in numbers as well as one sentence a day for the month...

{A Re-introduction of Hall Around Texas}

Many moons ago I saw this type of post on a friend's blog and wanted to post one here. I have made so many new blog friends since I have done any kind of 'about me' post. So, a re-introduction of me and my blog was in order. Just some random tid-bits about me and this blog....

{Little Letters // Vol. 7}

It's the 2nd Friday of the month which means it's time to link up with Kristin at Taz and Belly for Little Letters!! Every month I love this link-up a little more. To read my past Little Letters click H E R E. It feels so good to get these random little thoughts out of my mind each month! Here are my letters for this month...

{Five Things bringing me joy right now}

Time for another round of five things that are bringing me joy right now. I wrote a post like this a few months ago {H E R E} and I decided I want to do this every couple of months. Life often gets busy or mundane and so I want to focus on the happy. A heart check, if you will.

{The Daily Dime // A Day in the Life Summer 2017}

Time for another round of The Daily Dime - A Day in the Life. I really enjoyed writing this post last month and think these posts will be fun to look back on at a later time. It's amazing how much a day in our lives can change depending on the season or time of year. Here is a look at a day in our life...

{The Kids Behind the Blog // July edition}

Time for the July edition of The Kids Behind the Blog. If you're new to the blog and not really sure what this link-up is all about you can read all about it here. Basically we provide you with 5-7 questions to ask your kid(s) each month. Then you blog about it and come back here to link-up. My co-hosts and I love to hear the things that kids say and that's why this link-up was born! I love the fun questions for this month. Here are Mason's answers for July's The Kids Behind the Blog...

{Getting Outdoors with your kids}

Nathan and I are always looking for ways that we can spend time outdoors with Mason. The more we are outside the less he is inside playing games or watching Netflix on the iPad. Below are some ways to get outdoors with your children.

{10 on the 10th // Daily Habits}

Linking up with Erin at Perfectly Port for this month's 10 on the 10th Link-up Party. This month's prompt is 10 daily habits. This post was fun to ponder on and write. I never really realized these daily habits before. Here are ten of my daily habits...

{He said what??}

It's been a while since I have done a 'he said what' post. Mason is one of the most witty kids I have ever met and he keeps us on our toes. I love to document the adorable and the hilarious {at least to me} things that Mason says on the blog so that I can read them when he's grown! I keep a note going on my phone so that I can compile them into one big blog post every so often. This one goes back all the way to September of last year.

{What We're Reading // Vol. 7}

We're back for our seventh edition of "What We're Reading"! Thank you to all you that have linked up with us thus far. It's been fun to see what everyone else is reading each month. My book list is now never ending and I love it. I've recently rekindled my love for reading. I thought I loved a good paperback book, but it's proving easier to read on the Kindle app on my phone. Here is a look at what we are reading this month.

{Happy Independence Day}

{Sweet Summertime 2017 // Vol. 2}

Back with another photo dump of some pictures from summer 2017 so far! Most of these are just from hanging out at home, but I am soaking up every minute of this sweet summer with my loves. Summer...please slow down!
