smileandwave It was the best Monday, maybe the best DAY, I've had in awhile. Except the big kids had to get shots this morning so they will remember this day for different reasons. #sorearms #icecreamafterwards 20h
  •   queensbabies So glad to hear that! 19h
  •   gypsybison Yay! So happy for you 19h
  •   katyannev 17h
  •   itsallbien Yay for best days! 17h
  •   my_three_arrows I saw you walking this morning when I was dropping my girls off for camp at the springfield little theater! But I didn't want to be weird because you don't know me. @smileandwave 6h
  •   smileandwave @my_three_arrows haha! I'm always up for meeting other Springfield mamas! I walked past the theater twice trying to figure out what was going on. It looked so fun! 5h
  •   my_three_arrows @smileandwave Yeah the theater does week long day camps during the summer. This week's camp is Harry Potter themed! (My kids are obsesssssed. ️) They go all week then do a little play on Friday. 5h
  •   smileandwave @my_three_arrows sounds like the best kind of camp! 5h

smileandwave I've been singing @shaunalott's pie making praises since I had my first slice a year ago. I stepped onto her Airstream and left forever changed. No exaggeration here, her pie raised the bar so high that the only way I'll be able to enjoy her Colorado-based pies again will be to perfect her recipes myself. Thank GOODNESS she and @annieherzig paired their talents to bring us Not Your Granny's Pie, a hand-illustrated recipe book with 12 of @thelongipie pie recipes with a special page outlining how to get your crust just so. They're available in @not_your_granny via the link. Let's just say the S'Mores Pie and the Drunken Nut sound particularly necessary for me to make soon. Go grab a copy and thank me later! Actually, thank @shaunalott for being so good at sharing her talent with us! #thelongipie #pie #recipe 4d
  •   lexibridges YUMMMM!! 4d
  •   kristacoons @rachelklis how darling is this recipe 4d
  •   thelongipie I just adore you. I've never told you, but when you stepped into my airstream I was a little stars truck. I had been following you and the other Missouri gals forever. I'm glad we're friends now. I'll make you a pie any day! Hugs from Colorado. 4d
  •   laknoop This is awesome! I went to high school with Shauna but had no idea what she's been up to! Randomly finding her on IG through this post made my day! 4d
  •   jamiedenbow I'm coming over when you make the S'mores one!! 4d

smileandwave Things have been feeling lighter over here this last week. Our season of not knowing what's next is over and we're walking into the next chapter. Just like that. I'm so thankful for the lessons learned but even more so for what we get to look forward to. Also, someone has some new teeth! 1w

smileandwave Confession: I've been sneaking out to the 'post office' once a week this month after getting Smith to bed at night. Brett's in on it and even helps distract the big kids if they're still awake when I get back with my Braum's frozen yogurt. #metime
Also, I always manage to leave my shoes in the room Smith is sleeping so I borrowed Sebastian's. That's a whole nother reason to go drown my feelings in froyo!
