It’s been a super busy week, which is why I’ve only blogged twice in May so far. With Mother’s Day and the end of school approaching, my shop has been non-stop busy with orders. I’ve been staying up late finishing orders and doing the other one million things that need to be done after kids go to bed. Seriously, how do other work at home moms do it? Every time I attempt to do anything during the day, it’s not even worth it. Maybe it’s the age of my kiddos, but I’m moving non-stop taking care of them, feeding them, cleaning, errands, and keeping choking hazards out of Maddox’s mouth. This really has become a full time job alone…he just reached the never-sit-down-run-after-him-24/7 kind of busy!
We’re hosting Mother’s Day and Ryan’s birthday on Sunday and celebrating his birthday with his family on Saturday. Then I have to plan a date with Ryan (and buy a gift…always the hardest thing for me) for his birthday on Tuesday. I love these parties and get togethers…just a busy time right now.
Speaking of Mother’s Day, I’m sharing 4 of my favorite and most popular signs in my shop right now. If you need a meaningful gift before Sunday, these are great because you can order them today, print them off this weekend, set them in a frame, and give to a mom in your life.
Next our some favorite moments from the last couple of weeks (life lately).
Beckham started swim lessons this week! He has done way better than I thought he would. He kept saying he didn’t want to go, but 5 minutes in I saw him splashing his instructor and climbing up the stairs to the slide, both of which he was not supposed to do. #ihavethatkid It was funny to watch the girls and the boys during swim class. The girls ALL sat there and listened to the teachers. The boys. Haha! Not so much!
Next Monday, I have two awesome drinks for you in preparation for Memorial Day. I’m teaming up with a few bloggers for a “Progressive Dinner” series where we’ll share drinks, an appetizer, dinner, and dessert for Memorial Day! Have a great weekend!
I love connecting with y’all. My Facebook, Instagram(@snyderstellall) and Pinterest.

Your boys are adorable! Love the pic of Maddox with his feet up, precious!
Thank you Cara! He's a ham!
Wow – you definitely have been busy lately! We have, too. I think it's just a busy time of year all around! I have to tell you… your boys are just so adorable. I only have one but I feel like I'm constantly on the go, too. I go back to work in August and have no idea how I'm going to do it when I feel like I'm barely functioning as it is. It's definitely difficult being a mom!
I always look forward to your posts. Oh, and your hair looks great in that picture. The times I do mine have become few and far between, so I know how you feel! I keep thinking I'm going to just chop it off already, but then I chicken out. Oh, well!
Hope you have a good weekend!

Thank you. Good luck with starting your job!
Since you made Swedish meatballs, I just have to tell you that you have a Swedish reader :). I am a Swede that really likes your blog 🙂
I love this! Thanks for reading! I love that blogging can connect someone from Sweden and America!
What a great way to store snacks in the fridge! Thanks for the Meatball recipe. That's one of my hubby's fave dinners.
Thanks. I'm not sure if I love it just yet as he always grabs for snacks and wants to graze all day. ??
I'm stopping by from The Pick. I loved your post, but I really, really liked your irises around your mailbox! Hope you enjoy your very busy weekend!
I love them too! Sadly, they're already gone. Such a short lived plant! 🙁
