Five on Friday Vol. 12

I hope you've all had a wonderful week so far!! My week has actually been pretty good!! I'm going to take this 5 on Friday post to kind of wrap up the week. If you follow me on Instagram, I'm sorry for any repeats :)

We headed downtown for another little Modeling gig for Bennett & Zulily. (which by the way, you can see Bennett on their website if you hop over there today & on Sunday!!) :) Bennett seriously always has a blast we he goes there. They treat the models like kings & queens. There are snack drawers for them, and prizes they can pick out. And they always make the actual shoot really fun for them. I'm happy Bennett enjoys himself cause it's a super fun little outing for us.

Bennett started swim lessons last week. He HATED it the first 2 times we took him. He cried and yelled "I don't wanna go in the pool" over and over. But if I've learned something about Bennett, it's that he's a lot more brave than I used to give him credit for. He just needs us to trust in him. So we continued to take him to swim lessons, and now, just 4 lessons in, he's loving it!! He's jumping off the diving board, going down the slide, dunking himself under water, and even learning to doggy paddle. I'm super proud of him. I might have a more in depth post about this later. :)

I went out for a Mama's night out the other night. Thai food, ice cream & lots of really nice adult conversation. I think I've decided that Thai food is in fact, my very favorite cuisine. I could eat it every single day!! I admit, it doesn't always look appetizing, but it's so freaking good.

I've gotten a taste of Spring these past few days!! The sun has been shining, it's been in the 50's and we have been outside playing our little hearts out!! The boys are in noticeably better moods, and so am I. It's amazing the affect that weather can have on you, huh?? I'm just hoping and praying for more days like these, because it's been heavenly.

And lastly! Hope you have a fantastic weekend!!! :)
