Life lately.

A little life lately for your Thursday.

One of the best parts about getting Frenchie is seeing Ashby with her.  Ashby is as obsessed as Kensington.  They are such sweet little friends!

Some of her sweet friends made her pictures for her pre-op 🙂 .

She wanted a pic before her procedure.  Gosh, I love this girl so much!!  (And it’s too bad that you can’t see my driver’s license pic there really well…I’m 8 months pregnant with braces on.  Hahahaha!)

This time, she wanted to color before she went under.  Brave girl.

Lots and lots of prayers were answered with this one.  Here she is at home recovering the next day.  Love her so much!!

When your brother and sister each have two sporting events in one day…you’re drinking slushes and eating popcorn right off the bleachers by the end because…mama is just happy you’re having fun.

I love hearing all four of them over there playing together.

Oh that sweet smile!!

And those legs!!!!

We love, love, love to be outside!!  The boys were out in our yard playing baseball, so we decided to take a walk.  My front view…

…the back view.  And no, she’s not wearing pants.  #sigh

The side view 🙂 .

That’s life lately. xo

    Awww, how sweet of Ashby’s friends, making her pictures! I never had close friends like that when I was young! And it’s so cute to see her cuddling up with Frenchie too! 🙂

    Love seeing these pictures of your precious children! So thankful Ashby is feeling better. Where did you get your cute black shoes in the last picture?

    • Mix and Match Mama April 12, 2018 at 5:30 am

      Zappos! They’re Go Walks!

    Madeley is the cutest thing ever! Who needs pants when you are that precious??

  • Sara M Alexander April 12, 2018 at 6:46 am

    How I long to be outsiwe in nice weather…I’m and Erie, PA girl so that’s not happening a while. How is your license picture that old?? In PA we have to get new licenses every 4 years. Have a great day!

    • Mix and Match Mama April 12, 2018 at 7:04 am

      Every other time, we can go online and renew without changing out the picture (and therefore, waiting in line at the DMV).

    Hi Shay! Could you share where you got Ashby’s glasses or even places that you found to have a good number of options for glasses for kiddos? My four year old daughter needs glasses and we are struggling to find any that fit her well/stay up on her tiny little nose. Thanks so much!

    • Mix and Match Mama April 12, 2018 at 7:03 am

      I bought them at our optometrists’ office. The brand is Crayola :).

    • Susan McKain April 12, 2018 at 9:16 am

      My daughter struggles to keep her glasses up as well, so we like to get the kind with a little nose pads. Although style options are limited, we find the nose pads help keep them at the correct spot on her face.
      Shay, Ashby is so brave, and I am so impressed by her and by you. I’m glad she’s doing well after the last procedure. Prayers answered.

  • Laci April 12, 2018 at 7:10 am

    I am so glad Ashby is doing ok after surgery! Such a brave girl!

  • Natalie April 12, 2018 at 7:28 am

    We are getting ready to build a house and I’m curious as to how big your lot is. You have SO much room to run around even with the pool!!

    • Mix and Match Mama April 12, 2018 at 12:56 pm

      It’s a nice size for our area. It’s over an acre.

  • Brooke Richardson April 12, 2018 at 7:58 am

    Shay, we should both go to the dmv together bc I’m 8 months pregnant in my dL picture too. It’s awful. Lol.

    • Mix and Match Mama April 12, 2018 at 12:55 pm

      Amanda said the same thing!!! Hahahahaha! We need to have a date there together!

  • Angela Ellingson April 12, 2018 at 8:19 am

    Love. The sound of littles playing in the backyard is the absolute best. And I just thought Miss Madeley had a little dress on. Ha! She’s soooo cute!

  • Amanda @ That Inspired Chick April 12, 2018 at 9:09 am

    Girl! I’m going to have to show you my license! I was 8 months pregnant with Matthew in it!! I was a swollen mess. I’m too lazy to go to the DMV and wait in line for a new picture so I’ll be stuck with it for awhile. Hahaha! That Inspired Chick

  • Stacy Ambrose April 12, 2018 at 9:20 am

    Where did you get those large planters by the pool? Those are awesome!

    • Mix and Match Mama April 12, 2018 at 12:54 pm

      A place in Dallas called Jackson’s Home & Garden 🙂 .

  • Becky April 12, 2018 at 9:41 am

    Hi Shay! Love your blog! I just had to comment and say how gorgeous your skin is. That picture of you and Ashby before her procedure?? It’s seriously glowing! If you had to pick a few skin care products you could not live without, what would they be? I remember you mentioning Retin-A before. Think it’s totally worth trying? I need some new products in my routine…ready to mix it up!! Thanks so much! 😊

    • Mix and Match Mama April 12, 2018 at 12:54 pm

      I would pick that one and a great serum!! I think those make a huge difference. Oh and SPF DAILY!!!

  • Heather April 12, 2018 at 10:15 am

    Sometimes pants are overrated!

  • Lindsay @ Lindsay's Sweet World April 12, 2018 at 11:05 am

    Life is sweet! I hope Ashby is doing well after her procedure. She has been in my prayers.

  • carly April 12, 2018 at 12:30 pm

    Have you placed your order with Erin Condren for the new planner? You got me so obsessed with her products and I love that the life planner goes by school year!

    • Mix and Match Mama April 12, 2018 at 12:53 pm

      I believe the date is May 3! I can’t wait!!

  • Anna April 12, 2018 at 10:40 pm

    Skincare update please! You look so glowy and radiant in that pic of you and Ashby!

  • cassie {hi sugarplum} April 13, 2018 at 12:09 am

    Darling Ashby…praying for healing and comfort for that precious girl!!

  • Kimberly April 19, 2018 at 9:55 pm

    Oh, sweet Ashby… praying for and thinking of her often. And as for that adorable Madeley, well, sometimes we just have to pick our battles, right?! =]
