Royally Waiting {link-up #4!}

Royally Waiting... a weekly peek into your week link-up

Welcome back to Royally Waiting!  A place where you can share a glimpse into what's going on in your world!  KatyShelly and I are so glad you are here and hope you'll link up with us!  Here's a little peek into my week...

ADMIRING - I've spent a lot of time ADMIRING my fellow bloggers these last few weeks.  Huge shout outs of love and admiration to you guys for continually knocking out fabulous content!  I'm still trying to figure out how to find a little "me" time when sleep wins - every.stinkin'.time! :)  Keep up the great work, girls!

RODEO-ING - Last week was Kinder Rodeo at Hope's school.  It's always such a fun day and the kids have a blast dressing up as cowgirls and cowboys. To add a little boot scoot to their Morning Assembly, Colby's dance group performed.  The kids loved seeing them spin and lift their partners and Hope loved showing off her big brother!

loved getting the chance to RODEO with my favorite cowgirl!

REMINISCING - Mike and I were able to get away for a couple of days this past weekend and head to the Texas Hill Country.  Trip recap coming soon!

SHOPPING - While we were gone we did a little SHOPPING for the house.  This dinosaur was my favorite purchase!

BREAKING - This week is our kids Spring BREAK and my mom was very generous and offered to take our kids for a few days since Mike and I had to work.  They love spending time at "The Hill."

On Monday, they took an Amtrak train to Dallas with their cousins.

And I enjoyed lots less traffic since the majority of the students are gone!!!

LOVING - Hope loves to leave us little notes here and there.  My mom snapped a picture of this note and sent it to me.  Needless to say, I am LOVING her sweetness!

Translation:  I love you mom and dad.  I missed you.  I missed you a lot and I love you to the moon and back. #aaahhhh

TEXTING - We have apps on our phone where we can share locations with each other.  We got it to keep up with Colby when he was in Washington DC earlier this year but we've come to find out the kids track us more than we do them.  Last night Mike and I were at dinner at Chuy's (our family's favorite restaurant) and I get this TEXT from Holden:


WAITING ON... - It wouldn't be a Royally Waiting post without filling you in on what I'm WAITING ON! :) . We have decided to convert our playroom into a dance room - complete with floor to ceiling mirrors on two walls and a ballet barre on one.  I snapped this picture as a before pic...

I can't WAIT to see what the after looks like!!!

Don't forget to link up with us before you go!  We look forward to you sharing what's going on in your world!
