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).
I turned 35. And the world did not end. The firmament did not move. Gravity did not suddenly forsake me. My breasts, my ass, my eyelids were all pretty much where I’d left them the night before. -@robinnelee from The Idea of You on turning forty. 35 has been my scary age for a while now. I have to technically round up now. But you know what is equally scary: the idea of being in my 20s again or the idea of repeating 34 (a rather soul shaking yucky year). I’m grateful today. For my family. Lyla girl and LB: you two make my world spin, and my heart fill with love everyday. Happy Birthday to me. Mean it.
I am so proud of this girl for reaching level four in swimming. She can now swim 25 yards across the pool using crawl stroke arms and back float breathing BY HERSELF. Amazing. #youdownwithlmb
Stupid Colorado in the fall. 👎🏻🤷🏼♀️ swipe left. #colorado
This human is a force to be reckoned with already. She blows me away everyday with something that she says or does. Just now tonight she got up out of her bed and said (While caressing my face): “Momma, I’m sorry you’re sick. If you need anything you can just call my name and I’ll come help you cause I’m very helpful and I love you.” She’s heart and brain and beauty and humor and spunk. I don’t know how we got so lucky. #nationaldaughtersday #youdownwithlmb #yougavemeanexcusetotalkaboutmychild
Current TBR PHYSICAL pile. Don’t get me started on ebooks. I blame @ashleyspivey and @spiveysbookclub #tbr #spiveys📚club
August 2019 books! Lots of light romance mixed with a very hard read for me- Whisper Network. It really took me forever to read it because of how close to my working life and real life it hit. A pretty slow reading month for me and September is off to a slow start too. My TBR pile is completely scattered, massive, and random. I genuinely have no idea what I am reading next. 🤷🏼♀️ @spiveysbookclub @ashleyspivey #spiveys📚club
Sunday morning in the garden ... thinning sugar snap peas... caught by @walkingwithwalterdenver ’s new video equipment. #youdownwithlmb #garden #denvergarden
What an awesome weekend with framily. It just hit both LB and I today: look at how much magic we’ve made for her this weekend just by spending time with some of our most favorite people. Love our people. #youdownwithlmb @sammikitch @lwbranz @mrs_ashleyf
Lyla had a big day yesterday: first day of preK and first gymnastics class! Rocked both of them! #youdownwithlmb
A day of @mumfordandsons that started with LB and I at an intimate record store performance where the boys were literally two feet from us. You can see LB’s Hawaiian shirt in the pic from the record store. Then for pure joy from Lyla girl, swipe left. She had the best time and did so so so well. It helps when you know all of the songs thanks to your dad. #youdownwithlmb #concertbabies
