Oh snap!!! I passed the Colorado Bar Exam!!!! I'm an esquire. Yayayuayayayaya!!!!
House of Bennetts
Hey now. I'm Treana...welcome to my little slice of the internet where I get to use exclamation points with abandon!!! We do more here than overuse certain forms of punctuation. Around these parts you'll find DIY projects, budgeting ups and downs and tools, photography fun, food goodness, music loves, and hopefully a little inspiration. We talk about anything and everything here and hope that you'll join us in our mutual weirdness we call life. For more about us, our wedding, and our lives, visit the 'Bout the Bennetts page. (I so wanted to put an exclamation point there).
To the most capable and loving stay at home, businesses owning dad there ever was: Talk about inspiration:
Every time I see you
Caring so graciously and
Selflessly for your children,
My heart wells up inside.
I want to say that not
Every man could do what
You do. It really does
Fill me with awe.
Partly, I can’t imagine
Doing what you do
And then I know what
It is: I’m so grateful for
The you who is able,
Creative, loving and
Noble enough to do
What you do as if
It was the most
Natural and wonderful
Could do. Poem by Stan Stuart. We love you. We’re lucky. We love you. Thanks for loving us. @robrich23 #happyfathersday
Watching these three grow up together makes me the happiest. They’re sisters, cousins, besties, and just good people. Love them the most. #youdownwithlmb @lwbranz @sammikitch
Weekend vibes. She boycotted nap today so Daddy said: screw it. Let’s drive to the mountains with no destination in mind. And so we did. It was great. The end. #youdownwithlmb #colorado #thefutureisfemale #thefutureislyla
These two. 😍😍😍 #lbsquared #youdownwithlmb @robrich23
How lyla does the highlands ranch beer festival. #youdownwithlmb
Guys. The bulk of the garden construction is done. I’m so happy. I’m so excited. I’m so about to spend all my money in plants. #houseofbennetts
A busy crazy weekend capped off by what I am terming a black foot (I think I hairline fractured my foot and it’s disgusting if I don’t have it elevated). Colorado and I are fighting over this weather and we might just put my foot on the dash and drive to Phoenix- like tomorrow. #youdownwithlmb
I can’t. #youdownwithlmb photo cred @robrich23
For lyla. Who made me a mom. Who showed me what confidence and power and love and sass and humor and beauty and patience and hardship really are. She has the universe in her little being and I feel so privileged to be her mom and walk beside her— watching her grow and change. Privileged and humbled. I love you Lyla. Happy Mother’s Day to us. #youdownwithlmb
It’s been a bit since I did a big book update. These are all on my TBR digital pile and on hold at the library or physical copy I also have (oh God, it’s a lot): Things to do when it’s raining, So here’s the thing, The Seasonaires, Star-Crossed, A Spark of Light, Born a Crime, Where the Crawdads Sing, Queenie, Conversations with Friends, When all is said, the girl he used to know, Shortest Way Home (mayor Pete), I owe you one, city of girls, normal people, maybe you should talk to someone, the lost girls of Paris, lost roses. 🤓📚🛀🤷🏼♀️ a few people have wondered HOW I read so much— I read at least two hours a day and I also read VERY fast. 90% of the books I read, I read every word— so to call it speed reading isn’t accurate. I just read QUICKLY. My book count is at 22 for the year so far and to hit my 50 goal means I gotta pick it up a bit. My favorite read thus far this year is a tie between Educated and Daisy Jones. All recs and book advice come from @ashleyspivey and #spiveys📚club on Facebook and on insta. #booknerd #bookclub Also, i only post finished books in my story highlights by year. All the ones I’ve read this year thus far can be found there. 😘
