Life lately.

It’s Thursday.

I love Thursdays.

Today, I’m taking Kensington and we’re doing something really special to celebrate her 10th birthday this weekend!  If you want to see what we’re up to, you can follow along on Instagram or Facebook.  Here’s a little throwback in honor of today…

…ten years ago.


Never stand next to your younger, super fit, cousin when you’re 9 months pregnant.

Side note, my sweet cousin is pregnant right now with her second baby 🙂 .

Here’s one more throwback in honor of Kensington’s upcoming birthday…

…first family picture 🙂 .

Lots of labor and a c-section will make you look really tired. Hahahaha!  Sweet baby girl!  It just seems like YESTERDAY.  Where has the time gone?!

T-minus two days until she’s TEN!

In the meantime, here’s some life lately…

Ashby wrote a letter for Bowen.  She was so excited to put it in the mailbox!

Best record in baseball?  Those Boston Red Sox!  I’ve been wearing my gear around town to show my pride 🙂 .  You can find my shorts HERE.

On Friday, Erika, Andrew and I tried to take the kids to the SMU/TCU game in Dallas to watch Tab officiate.  We made it there and enjoyed Mexican food pre-kickoff.  The problem?  It wouldn’t stop storming!  We waited around and then finally decided to head home after they moved kickoff all the way to 9:00 PM.  Watching Tab officiate sounds like fun!  Sitting in the rain with six kids on wet seats after 10:00 PM does not.  Boo.

Saturday morning hair 🙂 .

I snapped this sweet pic the other night at Sean and Catherine’s house.  Isaiah looks pretty cozy, right?!

They decorated the front of the gym for fall.  Of course, we had to stop for a pic by the hay!

That’s a little life lately.  See you tomorrow! xo

    That Saturday morning hair is the cutest picture!!!!! Her smile just melts me!
    You & the hubby look like babies yourself in that first ‘family photo’ … I’m sure 10 years feels like yesterday when you look at that.
    Have a great birthday celebration!!!

    What is your secret? You look younger now than you did 10 years ago. You and your hubby have both gotten better looking. It surprises me every time I see you post photos from when y’all were younger. What is this fountain of youth and where can I find it?!?

    • Reply Mix and Match Mama September 14, 2018 at 5:37 am

      Hahahahahaha! Thank you!

  • Reply Mallory B September 13, 2018 at 8:48 am

    I love Madeley’s pajamas, where did you find those?? I can never find nightgowns!

    • Reply Mix and Match Mama September 14, 2018 at 5:36 am

      It’s an oldie (passed down, it was Ashby’s).

      • Reply Katie September 14, 2018 at 8:28 pm

        I find nightgowns in Amazon! Occasionally target as well…

    You left out the most important link…where to get your Boston Red Sox shirt🤔

    • Reply Mix and Match Mama September 14, 2018 at 5:36 am

      It’s from the Yawkey Way Store inside Fenway Park 🙂

    Not sure if you have seen this video but check it out:

    It’s a Red Sox fan who gives a little girl who is Yankee fan a foul ball that he caught, and then the little girl gives him a hug.

    Love your Blog!!

    Is it just me or does Isaiah look a lot like Smith? I think it’s the nose?? (Not sure whose nose Smith/Isaiah has but it’s a cute nose, ha)

    Awe… happy birthday to Kensington!!! Enjoy your day with her. 🙂

  • Reply Kelly Buffington September 13, 2018 at 11:18 am

    Have the best time with your big girl! And both of these pics of Madeley made me laugh! The cutest little bedhead and how she has her hands around Britt’s neck in the last one. Britt looks like she’s not entirely sure about it;).

    Aww! 10! Have a great day with your girl! Adorable pictures!
