Wordless Wednesday: Sigma Edition

Last summer my husband’s fraternity celebrated their 100 Year Anniversary in Washington D.C.  He came home with tees for all the kids.  We were keeping them for family photos, something fun and finally I just said to put them on the kids recently.  Here’s our mini photo shoot done by me.

Wordless Wednesday Colorado Springs

Wordless Wednesday Colorado Springs

About almost two weeks ago my husband and I were in Colorado Springs, he was interviewing for a job and we were exploring the city as a possible new home for our family.  Unfortunately things didn’t work out for us to move there this year but we both fell in love with all the city had to offer.  The mountain views were amazing and the air was lovely and cool.  It was a much slower pace than Baltimore and it has so much character.  I could see us living there, who knows what the future holds.  Here’s some photos from our trip.

Wordless Wednesday – Loch Raven Reservoir

Wordless Wednesday – Loch Raven Reservoir

A couple of weeks ago, the family and I took a drive around our neighborhood and found we had some lovely places to explore right in our back yard.  Here’s some photos from the Loch Raven Reservoir that’s about two miles from our house.  It’s beautiful.

This is our Kristian Regale Sparking Juice Beverage.  They sent me a few bottles to try and I figured it would be perfect for Family Love Dinner because the kids get something fancy to drink besides just apple juice.  Make sure you visit their website and look for my review post this week.  Their sparking juice is amazing.

I mixed my Kristian Regale Sparkling Juice with Moscato to make a sparkling Moscato.  It was delicious and super easy to make.  I mixed one third the glass with Moscato and the rest with sparkling juice.  You can adjust according to how much wine you want adding more or less.

My Purple Tennis Shoes for my Ravens.
Showing off my belly.
The photo didn’t show my shirt color well. It looks blue but it’s a shade of purple as well.

And I have to brag that yes my Ravens did get a W.  So I was super excited.  Can’t wait for the game this weekend.

So comment below and tell me are you a woman who loves or lives football?

After much debate about whether or not I was going to say something, worried about what people would say and so much other factors I have decided that it’s time to announce that we (The Stephens Family) are expecting.  This will be me and my husband’s fourth child and it’s another BOY for us.  We’re excited and blessed and can’t wait for his arrival in December.

Some free samples I got in the mail from Procter and Gamble.

I know this should be wordless but I wanted to share this tip with the photo.

Every three to four months I get a few samples from PGTryIt and sometimes its ok but other times it’s great like this quarter. I got two tide samples, downy unstoppables, fabric softner, toothpaste, and Pantene.

You can see if you qualify by visiting their site.
