Hi peeps! Another week done and dust, no?
It’s been...quiet! Not on the blog, but in life in general. Slowly, over the last few weeks, we’ve been transitioning back into routine mode. Bedtimes have become more structured, Mama has been getting things done in the evenings, and our social life has been put slightly to the backburner!
Not that I’m complaining. This was, is necessary. This was nice! Saturday, Hubby had gone fishing the morning and afternoon and when he got home, we quickly went to the shop and took LJ to the doctor. While out a close friend asked if we wanted to braai. My gut reaction was NO. We’d been very specific about not wanting to do anything for a few weeks, but this friend is a rustig (calm) friend. Don’t get me wrong...he can enjoy a party! But he knows the deal with kids too.
I agreed since Hubby and I were going to braai on our own anyways. I knew CC wouldn’t mind us doing the normal parent things while he was there (bathing, bedtime, etc.). As he pulled up, I thought Hubby was going to have a heart attack! C & L had shown up with another friend and a clump of L’s little brothers friends. I’m talking like....8 of them!
Hubby immediately runs in the room and says, ‘Before you go out there....I want you to know I didn’t do this!’ I walk into my lounge to see them all outside. My heart sinks....I love my friends and C & L are always welcome at my house, even unannounced! But I won’t lie....I just wasn’t up for all those people! I felt like hiding myself away!
I just can’t be like that though. When I asked JJ to move his bukkie because it was blocking the drive they explained they were just stopping by to pick up a few chairs at my house and the big braai. I offered to C for them to braai by me (what the frack is wrong with me), because I know my house is bigger and C also never worries about me needing to be Mama! She even jumps in and helps! But C is an amazing friend and knew how I felt...she kindly declined and truth be told, was honest to say it will be nice to braai at their house for a change! Lol
I truly love my friends! No explanations needed....no questions asked....we just get it!
If you haven't noticed....I've made some changes around the good ol' blog space. Nothing major...a new header, some updated social media buttons and I redid the About Me page. Take a look around and let me know what you think!
And mark your calendars, peeps! A new giveaway will be going live on Tuesday here on Organized Chaos! I’ve got some ah-mazing bloggers lined up all wanting to give you over $100 in ad-space!

Little Dude drove me totally insane last night, and now he's forgotten his night-time antics! Wish I had a toddler brain too.
If we don't have any real interaction what is the point of following each other? #nosyperhaps

So, here’s a little insight to what you missed this week!
Saturday brought back the funnies! I hope I lightened your mood with some humor about returning to school! And Sunday we took a closer look at what God’s word says about waiting.
Monday was of course another Social Sunday. If you didn’t have a look yet, we all took the time to reintroduce ourselves to old readers and give new readers some insight as to who we are and why we blog! Have a look at it and then pop over to A Complete Waste of Makeup to find some new favorite blogs!
Then I took the time to show you Lil Mister’s Bug Birthday! Can you believe he is three already?
Tuesday I got honest with yall and discussed what is going on in the homestead. Specifically, I talked about the issues we’ve been having in the discipline area! My son thinks he is the boss! And then of course, I shared Mercy Me with You Are I Am for Tuesday Tunes!
Wednesday brought us some fun in the sun for wordless Wednesdays and another week of the Twitter Hop!
Thursday Fallon stopped by from Fal Finds Happiness to give you her top 10 reasons you need to take her with you to Disney World! I’m serious....this girl has that place on lock down! You’ll never go wrong with Fal as your tour guide!
Keep an eye on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook as I promise to keep up next week with all that is going on!
