Our week in pictures

(This post may contain affiliate links. Read my full disclosure.)

Thank you to DriveShop USA and Mazda for allowing my family to use the CX-3 you see in this blog post. The car was provided free for my personal use and all opinions on the car are mine alone.

Hi friends! It's been a whirlwind couple of weeks and we're spending a rainy weekend doing a whole lot of nothing and winding down. I usually tell stories with words but I've taken so many pictures over the past couple of weeks that I thought I'd let the pictures (mostly) tell the stories. I give you our week in pictures, although it's actually more like 10 days!

Our family got to drive the Mazda CX-3 for a whole week. Is this color not awesome? I know I should give my thumbs up based on practical stuff like comfort and gas mileage but this blue! And yes, the CX-3's comfort and gas mileage get my thumbs up as well. But the color!


I had to break out my blue handbag because it matches the car.


I got to see my friend Celina take the office of president of the Junior League of San Antonio, which was pretty awesome. There were also refreshments, which were awesome, too.


Our 2017 Listen to Your Mother San Antonio show was at the Carver Community Cultural Center. Love this picture Mewborne Photography got from the outside.


Speaking of Listen to Your Mother, I went on TV to promote our show. Click this image for tips on how to rock a TV interview.


One of the highlights of our week was going to the Helotes Cornyval. I grew up in Helotes, Texas so taking my kids to the Cornyval was a huge dose of nostalgia for me!

Knocked out after the Cornyval. The Mazda CX-3 is a tiny bit small for a family car but we definitely made it work.


First pool day of the season!



It's Catterday! Hilmy show particular interest in my brushing and flossing routine.


Zack and hubs went to Camp No Limits while Kyle and I stayed home. It was Listen to Your Mother weekend, so things were a little crazy around our house. This was the first time the boys had ever been apart. This was the “see you later” picture that Kyle asked me to take “so he could look at a picture of Zack while he was gone.” Awwww, right?

Loved driving the Mazda CX-3 for the week. Thank you to our friends at DriveShopUSA for the vehicle loan.


Also, Listen to Your Mother is no longer doing new videos. The reading I did at last week's show is called “That Older Mom.” To check it out click the image below:

We are so thankful to Mazda and DriveShop USA for allowing us to drive this lovely car for the week. And it's BLUE! How awesome is that? Every woman needs a car that goes with her accessories, right? The CX-3 is a fun and feisty runabout with a can-do attitude, offering taut handling paired with edgy styling. A 146-hp 2.0-liter four-cylinder and a six-speed automatic with front-wheel drive provide the zoom-zoom; all-wheel drive is optional. The CX-3 relies on its sport-tuned suspension and creative weight-saving measures to maintain Mazda’s unique brand of driving pleasure. The cabin is equally well designed, featuring high-quality materials and modern driving aids.

The price point is in the $20K range, depending on features. While some might find it a tad bit on the smaller side for an everyday family car, we made it work. The backseat was more than roomy enough for two booster seats and the trunk had plenty of room for all the stuff we drag around on a daily basis. A good amount of giddyup and a smooth ride. A keeper, except we were sorry to see the DriveShop USA rep come to pick it up. Sad trombone.

Thank you for following along with our family adventures and thanks for checking out our week in pictures. For more, make sure you're keeping up with us on Facebook.
