Last Day

How is it possible that this is my little boy? Where in the world did he go?

My baby's all grown up

Tyson had his awards ceremony for Kindergarten at school today. To say that I sat quietly and smiled would be lying. I was a mess. Just as hard as it was for him to start school, it was hard to say goodbye as well. It just doesn't seem like an entire school year has passed. I mean, really?! And let's not even talk about the fact that in a few short months my baby, baby will be starting school...

And as any dutiful mother would do, I sat, crying, taking pictures.

Pink eye sick day.

Hanging out with my honey.

Insomnia. Again.

Someone got really tired from playing at Pump It Up.


He ASKED to hold my hand. Melt.


Lunch with Moose.

Happy Friday y'all!

I discovered something. Yes, yes I did just find something else to keep me glued to my computer. Who needs to do laundry anyways?


Never heard of it? Neither had I. But while on Pinterest, I noted that lots and lots of the essembles were from Polyvore. So I decided to take a look.

Y'all, Polyvore is a site where you can CREATE your own looks. Holy Montana.

I'm all in now. Although I don't have the best creative style, but who cares. It's so much fun!

And yes, I created this story. Fab!

What I WANT to Wear Wednesday

I love to read all the "What I Wore Wednesday" posts from The Pleated Poppy but have never had the courage to do one of my own because A) I have no style, B) I only wear "clothes" on Sundays and C) I really don't want to take a picture of myself. So there.

So, I decided to put some of my pinterest boards to use! (Seriously y'all-pinterest?! Amazeballs.) And thus I am making a What I WANT to Wear post. Ingenious.

Everyday. Easy. Casual.

A little more girly.

Date Night.

With these shoes. I really want these babies.

So...this week started of fabulously, but it's ending on a sour note.
Mother's Day was lovely.
My boys showered me with love, care and cards.
I however showered them with my allergies.
Wednesday brought pink eye to Tucker, which quickly spread to Tyson on Thursday and then to both eyes in both boys today.

Tyson and Peepaw

Me and my baby


Our big boy.

Mother's Day

My boys. {love}

Stuart and the boys took flowers to his mother too. :(


When sick, one will build a fort.

My SIL and I pretended to be young and carefree by going to the Switchfoot concert.

This is what happens in 5 minutes when both boys are home. And sick.

Here's to Friday! {clink, clink}

First World Pains

OK, so I'm addicted to twitter.
And facebook.
And instagram.
And blogs/blogging.

One of my favorite hash-tags (who knew this would be terminology nowadays?) is #firstworldpains. I have to admit, at first, I didn't get it. Why is it funny that the battery is low on our phone, so we have to listen to the radio on a radio? Or is it really comical that we're in bed and realize we have to go to the bathroom but getting up would require us to wake up all the way?

Yes, yes it is.

So, in order to not fill up my friends, followers feeds with my nonsense, I decided to add it here.

My First World Pains:

  • I'm allergic to oranges, so I can't have mimosas. 
  • I just shaved my legs and then get a chill and get goosebumps. 
  • I took the sheets off the bed to wash them and at bedtime realize I haven't put fresh sheets on.
  • We started remodeling the bathroom 6 months ago and the light fixture is hanging by wires.
  • My husband's beverages are too tall for the fridge shelf, so I have to rearrange everything to make them fit.

First world pains!

Mother's Day

Today I am so thankful and grateful to be a mom. It's not a glamorous job. It has it ups and downs (some days it seems like there are more downs than ups) and definitely is not easy. The blessings that come with being a mom are immeasurable.

So today, I am thankful and joyful and blessed and overwhelmed.

Thankful for this man that helped make me a mother.

Thankful for this boy that officially made me a mom.

Thankful for this boy that completed my motherhood.

Thankful for this dog that I can be a mom to.

Thankful for this mom who taught me all I know.

"Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her" Proverbs 31:28

The weather has been a bit dreary 'round here.

Tucker and his "girlfriend." Isn't she adorable?

Even power outages can be romantic.

Book Character Parade: 101 Dalmations.

My first, all by myself sewing venture. :)

My second (and 3rd, 4th, and 5th) sewing venture(s).

Homework.  A letter to a 1st Grade Teacher.

Why do I even try to get in bed?

Always the camera man.

Happy Friday!
