A Weekly Peek

Happy Monday, lovelies! Here is another weekly recap of my life via Instagram. If you haven't downloaded this app, what are you waiting for?  If you are an addict like me, let's be buds @becauseshannasaidso.

My photos are somewhat out of order, but I had to place the picture below at the top of the list. I mean, my seven year old road a freakin' sheep, other wise known as mutton bustin'. She deserved top spot today!

 Look at that form. Look at the determination. Look at that fearlessness! Yep, that's my girl. I swear she is me all over again. My legend will live on! I was so proud that she got on that thing and rode with heart. She didn't last 8 seconds, but just hopping on was a win in itself. She had some serious road rash to show for it. Way to go, Logan! Little Bo' Peep can't hold a candle.

 I came across this poor soul at our neighborhood pool. Naked, headless and sunburned. It wasn't a very good day for Barbie, to say the least. 

 If you haven't met Sparkle Monkey, well here she is, doing what she does best. This is my second spawn and she is a red headed mess! Give it up for the blue hairs!! Oh, Landry, thanks for keeping our house laughing. You WILL see her on Comedy Central one day.  You are looking at my ticket to early retirement.

I have been looking high and low for a cute and durable iPhone case that doesn't cost $50. You ladies know that I am a budget shopper. Well, guess what?  This little beauty was only $9.99.  I got it at a Texas based store called Sam Moon. They don't have this cover online, but they DO have amazing prices on all sorts of jewelry, handbags and accessories. You need to check it out here.

My friend Joy texted this to me and I about died. My best lady friends say that this song is my anthem. Okay, maybe a few months ago, but I think I might be over it. Why do they always have to go and ruin a song? Time for a new Shanna anthem. Any suggestions?

 Arm party from Sam Moon and Forever 21. I bought this chain link bracelet in four colors. Oh, yes I did!

 
One of my VERY best friends is having a baby and she is not finding out the sex. We had her shower this weekend. If you wore pink, you think it's a girl, blue a boy. I am so on Team Lyla! Team Kellan doesn't have a chance! Such a fun shower idea.

 We had dinner with a bunch of friends Saturday night and it took almost an hour for the server to figure out our check. Seriously, worst service EVER!!  If you live in Austin, don't go to Gusto if you have a large party! I posted this photo on Instagram out of pure boredom, but it was a mighty fine glass of white sangria.


Okay, ladies, I was scrolling through our online bank statement and came across this. WHAT? Are you joking? Ross spent how much at Sport Clips? If you don't know what this is, it's supposedly a CHEAP place to get hair cuts for men. My mouth fell open. This had to be an error!  Nope, Ross said that he got "the massage" and purchased a "few" hair products. I guess I am finally starting to rub off on him.  Nonetheless, his hair does look fabulous and their was NO massage happy ending!

I need that chain link bracelet in my life. Looks like a great weekend except for the restaurant drama. Don't worry, my husband always spends a ton of money at his hair cut at Super Cuts and he has far less maintenance than I do!

Emily said...

Love the pics. I will be following on Instagram (I am a bit addicted :) I LOVE Sam Moon, they have the CUTEST things!

Bahaha thank God for no happy ending! ;)

You always have jam packed weekend that look so fun! Both daughters sound amazing, just like their mama!

I love your arm candy! Perfect way to kick off the week.

Thanks for linking up!

Haha, the first thing I thought of was "happy ending" when you said he got a massage. Thanks for clearing that up. And your littles are just too cute. I'm hoping that my baby has some sort of talent that will be my ticket to early retirement too.

LOVE the pink/blue outfit idea for the baby shower. The moment my doctor said they could tell me the gender, I clearly had to know. I wouldn't be able to last 9 months without knowing what's coming.

Looks like an awesome weekend!

Karen said...

Love the pic of your daughter on the sheep!
Cute baby shower idea! Love it!

Annie said...

Haha, that's so funny that Ross spent so much on his hair! My hubby cuts his hair himself, which saves us a lot :)

I can't believe your daughter rode a sheep! She has some serious guts! Also, Barbie looks pretty pathetic all naked and headless. It definitely was a rough day for her. And lastly, you are rockin' a pretty fab arm party, miss! I love the bright colors. It's perfect for summer! Hope you have a happy Monday :)

Always Maylee said...

Oh my gosh, that first photo is just amazing and priceless! The DJ one made me burst out laughing, haha hilarious!

I love instagram! You could also link this post up with Hayley at Life Lately. That's so cool that your daughter did that! I can imagine it would be really scary! And that baby shower idea is THE best!! It would be perfect for someone wanting to get neutral items for a first child if they knew they were going to have more! I love the idea of dressing in pink or blue. Making a mental note for the future.

Mutton bustin'? Never heard of this! She looks badass!

Love the arm candy :)

Lyndse said...

I rode a sheep once...I wasn't very successful...I got thrown into one of those old fashion water fountains...that you have to pump. My little brother, whose name is Logan, is a team roper and he was in a Rodeo on Friday night...there was so many cute little ones in the mutt busting event. So adorable!

Meg {henninglove} said...

your daughter is so stinkin' cute and then wow look at her mutton bustin! i can't onlyimagine that would be my reaction too if my husband went to sports clips and got a few extra things. after he went christmas shopping this past christmas, and after all the bills were paid he told me that while christmas shopping he stopped to get a massage!

Girls Love Fried Pickles said...

That Ross is high maintence which is obvisoudly why I haven't got my alimony check. That girl of yours on the giant goat is talented next time I want to see her a forever 21 dress and do this.

Andrea {blonde ambitions} said...

Such a great recap! Your daughter looks awesome mutton bustin :) Poor Barbs, she obviously had too much fun at the pool!

Katie said...
