Fun

|June 2017|

Posted on Updated on

Almost halfway through the year. June is coming to a close. Lots of family time spent together. 

Recap of some family festivities in June. 


Chocolate milk mouth and dirt… ALL boy. Rhett would spend hours and hours outside just playing in the dirt, with his toys, or in the shop with his dad. 




We traveled to Weatherford, OK to see my in-laws for a few days and spent Father’s Day there. The last picture is of my husband and father in law. Love. I can’t help but think in about 5 years, this will be Rhett and Tommy. 



We have been doing some yard renovations and moving rock and dirt around; Rhett was in charge of driving the mower with the trailer. He had so much fun. He picked wildflowers for me & helped me arrange them for my entryway. Fun in the sprinkler and feeding chickens. A very HOT, HOT Sunday outside. 


Last, but certainly not least.. I have been seeing a personal trainer since February to help motivate me and get me back in shape and back to my “pre-baby body”. [Yes, I am fully aware my child is three already] 


I can’t say this enough. With all of the negativity in the world today, I have to step back and focus on the good in my life and be thankful for the life I live. July will be all about focusing on the good in MY life. For me. For my family. 

Until then,

We Are The Marshall’s

Since my gallbladder surgery, I haven’t been able to do much lately. Nothing strenuous anyway. The same television shows I have seen dozens of times, daytime soap operas I don’t care to watch, and outdated game shows I can guess the outcome of. I am about to lose my mind.


So this past Friday, Tommy & I go on a date. First date we have had, just the two of us, in I can’t remember how long. I wanted dinner and a movie, but without people. I didn’t want to be around anyone but my husband. We catch an early dinner, about 5, restaurant is empty; it’s perfect. What are the chances of going to the movies & the theatre being empty? Yeah, we could not get that lucky. Next best thing? Rentals: The movie store! We browse the shelves and pick out a handful of movies. He finds several he likes (which typically involves some western and/or war movie) and I find a few we both can enjoy. All weekend long we enjoyed the last few days of quiet and just “us” time. Rhett will be coming home in a few days and back to reality we will be. I haven’t seen very many movies being advertised lately; so we go in this endeavor blinded. To my surprise, we did quite well with our selections. :]

  • Money Monster
    • I thoroughly enjoyed this movie; real life possibilities here. Definitely a must see.
  • Traded
    • Horrible acting, great concept. Movie was…. mediocre?
  • Masterminds
    • This movie was hilarious. It reminded me of Napoleon Dynamite with the cheesy humor.
  • Captain America: Civil War
    • Super hard to follow. I kept asking Tommy questions. You have to be familiar with the comic characters. Otherwise, this was a so-so film.
  • Suicide Squad
    • Would not recommend watching this with kids. Humorous, yet full of action. Really enjoyed; 4 out of 5 stars for me.

 

Ready, Set, Action,

I’m just going to leave all of this cuteness here.
