Happy 4th of July! 🇺🇸

If there is one thing that I LOVE, it’s being festive. Today was a great day to be patriotic! Celebrating America’s Independence.

Today was filled with lots of love, laughter and pride. Pride in the country we live in. It may not be the best, but we all make it work.

My babies were looking extra patriotic today. Below is a sneak peak of what they wore. Great finds from Old Navy and Walmart. I love, love, love a bargain! They had so much fun swimming. I did as well. It literally was the perfect day.

Well I hope you all had a safe & wonderful Independence Day.

Love, Boys and toys Mom.

P A R T Y! 

I find it so funny that this outfit was bought for our Toddler when he was about 6 months old. It has been hanging up since 2015. Yes that’s right. No typo. Crazy how time has flown by. 

Today’s outfit for our soon to be one year old! 

We’ve been going here, there and everywhere getting things for his party Saturday. I feel kind of overwhelmed because I really don’t have the party gene. All I can do is keep moving forward. 

Idk why party’s are so hard to plan. Maybe it’s all the ideas we get and then when reality hits, it’s like BOOM! Yeah, don’t have the budget to do that. Lol. 

I still do my very best. Even when others may think it’s not. 

Love, Boys & Toys Mom! 


Life… it truly cannot be described by one person. It has so many different meanings. Happy, sad, joy, defeat, etc. 

To me the only people who can truly tell you about life are those that have lived it. Which in this day is a beautiful sight. 

I have the honour of knowing a few in their prime of life (90’s). 

The excitement they have when family comes to visit makes my heart burst with life. I’ve always had a love for elderly and babies. I can’t put my foot on it. I just do. 

The innocence, the purity of their souls, the joyful hearts. 

All I can say is live your life with gladness, obsession, and most of all thankfulness. 

Love, Boys and Toys Mom! 


There’s a sense of sadness I get when staying with family. The hello’s and the goodbyes. Coming home to a still and quiet home. Filling it with giggles and the piter patter of little feet.

On July 3rd our air conditioner went out in the middle of the night! We did what we could until morning and my parents were like, “pack what you need you’re staying with us!” This made my heart melt. That they didn’t think twice about anything.

We had the best 4th of July. It’s been a long time since we’ve all been together. We went swimming and the boys loved it. My oldest now feels that he is an Olympic swimmer. Trying to run and get back in the water even after being so tired and worn out! Lol… little boys!

I sometimes like being around a lot of people it just depends what the circumstances are. But when we have to leave o get this sadness in my little ol heart that we have to leave and go back to reality. It’s not so bad. We get to see them everyday. There’s my silver lining.

Love, Boys and toys mom!
