Hi there friends. I'm back again: Our Life Happenings from the past few weeks


Lately, I'm sharing most of my photo updates on Moore Minutes Facebook page.  So follow along over there loves! I'm also posting to Instagram.  You can find me there under MooreMinutes {of course}.


This is my cheese face.
My very pretty cheese face.


I've stepped away from regular blogging to put my FULL focus on health issues I've struggled with for awhile.  I've mentioned this thorn in my side a few times on my blog before.  The most recent update is here: Learning about perfectionism, struggles, and being set free. 

I am so excited at the new little victories I've had with this battle and the freedom that has come with it!  I feel a strong desire to share my whole story with you someday here. 

In the meantime, I have a whole big-little photo collection all lined up in a row of our happenings the past few weeks.  We've been out, celebrating our todays, spending time with each other, and creating moments! 


A handful of road trips!!


We've spent a couple weekends up in glorious Aspen, Colorado.
 Yes, I know.  We are lucky ducks.  ;) 

 

Waking up to say hello to the morning in the mountains!



A few final snowball fights in the mountains before spring run off begins.


Cool shot of Kotah dodging a snowball!


Meeting new friends...


The Moore Boys in Aspen looking super fly! ;)


Exercise is everywhere when you're a kid.
This was SO tall and scary!


Peaceful hikes under the tree giants.


Another weekend we went to Carbondale to do some sight seeing and hiking. 
We also visited Osmia Organic Soap Shop and I blogged about it here






If I stand on top of this rock,
I can be almost as tall as you.
So there.



We spent a spring night celebrating a dear friend's birthday at the Palette painting studio.  Have you 
ever been to one?  It is such a creative way to spend time with friends.  The instructor took us through step by step instructions, teaching us how to paint our own canvas in a night.  I'm not a painter.  Nope.  Not at all.  But!! No talent was required.  It's so easy to bring out the artist in anyone during these classes! 



Chris and I both turned 31 in April.  
Our birthdays are a day apart.  
Chris hacked into my blog account and wrote a surprise birthday blog post for me! 
 Did you see it?
Love that boy.


I am SO very ready for this decade. 
 Life is a beautiful thing.


My mom's birthday is the same week.
The three of us always celebrate big in April for our special days!
We've been doing it for over a decade together now.
Here are comparison shots of Chris and I turning 21 together...
then a decade later turning 31 together.






We went out to a Japanese Steakhouse to celebrate.



For his birthday, I made Chris his favorite dessert:
Chocolate chip cookies,
but I supersized it for my hunk.



I topped it with homemade hot fudge sauce.  
It was gone in 3 seconds.


To him, from me.


My mom surprised me for an amazing birthday adventure day out!  
She came up with the most creative idea.
See details on the facebook post here!

Lunch and birthday treats


We had a lot of quick fun at the school spring track meet 2013!


The kids closed off the end of the school year with a school event at the rock climbing gym.



Titus had his first violin recital. 
#precious

I made some Circle Cakes for the teachers at the end of the year.

1) bake a cake
2) use biscuit cutters to cut circles
3) slide into cute paper ice cream cups
4) add a note
5) deliver with love!


I also surprised the school kids with Sonic slushies on the last day of school.
A color rainbow of 40 slushies in the back of my car!



 I captured in a photo
 the road beneath my shoes that I would run after completing my first 10 mile run ever!
It was an exhilarating moment for me.


The boys even joined in for part of my run!


Learning to run has been so exciting and I adore my team of boys who cheer me on. ;)



I've also still been busy in the kitchen with my homemaker apron on...

Baking homemade bread for my family.




Making party appetizers


Fresh blueberry muffins for our road trips!


Homemade oreos!


Healthy dinner experiments.  
These are chicken fajita stuffed peppers.
I'll be sharing this recipe soon. 


Cinco de Mayo lovin
with fresh Guacomole.






Finally, Chris and I just celebrated our 13th wedding anniversary with a spontaneous
 Ferris Wheel Ride.  
The carnival was in town and 
you know...
this beats fine dining with roses any day.
Right?


We are loving these Moore Minutes! 


It's been a rough struggle for me as I've battled my health issues.  
But God is so good and I'm seeing healing little by little.

Hopefully, I'll be back to regular blogging sooner than later.
