My best friend’s wedding day!

Posted on

Today is a day we’ve looked forward to for some time! My best friend found her soul mate and became a Mrs tonight!I had the honor of fixing her Momma’s hair and her daughter’s hair and makeup.But the most precious moments with her was getting to fix her hair as well and helping her get into her beautiful dress and making sure she was ready with her something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue. It was a perfect ceremony, perfect reception, and all around beautiful evening. I’m so thankful my husband made sure we were able to be there for one of the biggest milestones in her life!Congrats Laurie & Waylon! I can hardly wait to see what the future holds for you, besides this precious little girl that will be here in a few months!

My greatest find…

Posted on

Today our two youngest babes had their kindergarten and 3rd grade character book parade at school. Mad was “Klause” from the book “Series of Unfortunate Events” and Bitty was “Alice” from “Alice in Wonderland”. They have a half day of school and get to look forward to a weekend with Maw-Maw! Matt and I are out of town for the weekend to watch my best friend get married! On our way our we stopped by for a quick visit with Budah, Monica, & Nina. Then took a little In…

After a little exploring we found this gem of a spot to take a picture…
And if anyone didn’t already know, he truly is my greatest find. After a leisurely lunch and roaming through a few shops we took off to Denton. After getting settled in our hotelWe discovered we were less than a half an hour from Oklahoma, so why not add a new state to our list of places we’ve been together. So we took off to a casino for a nice dinner after walking around and taking in the sights. Luckily we aren’t big on gambling, so we only lost a few dollars. Then back to Denton we went to enjoy the rest of the evening together. Looking forward to what tomorrow brings! How cute are these little sparrows we found for our bedroom in Waco? We have matching sparrow tattoos, and they happens to have a red and blue one which red and blue birds have always been significant to me, so they were perfect!

Day full of joy & sadness…

Posted on

Today has been an eventful day full of so much joy and sadness. This morning Nina & I saw my husband and kids off to school and work. We had a make up day for “Nina & Maw-Maw Tuesday”. We had breakfast with her GG. I took her to the pumpkin patch and then to have lunch with her Paw-Paw. I went shopping for a wedding gift for my best friend and then the sad news that she’s been dreading arrived, her sweet Maw-Maw passed away today just three days before her wedding day. I remember that heartache. I still feel it to this day. And it makes me so sad that she has to know that kind of heartache during one of the happiest times of her life.

Scared of the dark?

Posted on

No school today meant it was a good day to go have lunch with Daddy at work and visit Maw-Maw Susie too! While at lunch this was one of the girls’ conversation…

Aubrie (12): “I’m scared of the dark”

Mad (8): “I’m already past that fear”
Bitty (5): “You’re 12 years old, how are you still scared of the dark?”

Five years today…

Posted on

Five years ago today we spent our first night in our new home. So many memories have been made. So many drawings on walls (crayons, lipstick, whatever a toddler could get their hands on), handprints up the stairway from a little one learning to climb stairs, and so many milestones measured on the door frame in our laundry room from our children and grandchildren that won’t stop growing. There is no one in this world I would rather build these memories with.

Chaos & love

Posted on

Life is busy. Life gets chaotic. Sometimes schedules don’t match up. Sometimes they do! This evening we got to spend time with most of our kids and grandkids and it was fantastic! Daddy & Aub went to see “It” while I took Mad & Bitty to see a movie that nightmares aren’t made of (ha ha)”Leap” at the theatre. Then we were able to meet up with our DIL and grandbabies for dinner! Budah was at band practice and didn’t make it, but it was pretty close to having us all there so I’m calling it a win! I love this family that I am so blessed to call mine!
