Things I love!

This is my new toy for my early B-day gift. It's great for me, and great for my 2 year old!
Some of my fav. apps are "Beat this Price," "GeoQpons," Redbox, Pandora, CameraBag, FamilyFeud, Camscan, WFAA, Groupon, Pocketlife, Flixster, and the following kids games. Art of Glow, Nick Jr.'s A-Z, Talking Tom, Cupcake Maker, BabyFirst, Tic Tac Toe, and Checkers!

I love Shutterfly! Since I ordered my Christmas cards with them, I have 10 free cards. So, I'm ordering Valentine cards for Macey's class, and just ordering 4 more. Can't beat that price!

I LOVE pennants. I'm not decorating our house much, since we want to move, but I love these for every season!

I made these for Tanner's room. L.O.V.E. it!

I love tissue poms. These are in Macey's room, and I have some school colored ones in my classroom.

I love this pig. I'm hoping Macey still loves her, so I can plan an Olivia party (at chuck e cheese?)

I want this little wallet for myself :)

Found here!

During our rare Texas snow, I took some pics of our land. I can't wait to blow these up, maybe put them on canvas, or in frame-less frames around our new house!

I'm sitting here, with my daughter beside me, and I'm reflecting on my past, and pondering our future.

I came across a picture of my grandparent's house, and I can google and see my own house online that I grew up in, and can't help but wonder, will I create such a place for my kids? Will they have all of these memories in our own house that we want to build them? I spent many years running from the small town I grew up in, and can't help but think now, why did I want to rush getting out so fast? It's hard to be in a different town, unfamiliar faces, unfamiliar territory.

This life is going by so fast. I can't help but sit here, while Macey now sleeps up against me, and listen to Miranda Lambert's, The House that Built Me.

~Plans were drawn, and concrete poured, and nail by nail, and board by board; daddy gave life to momma's dream.

Show us your Singles-Kellys Korner

Show Us Your Singles! Kelly's Korner

This post is for my childhood friend. I'm praying that she doesn't mind me advertising for her! :)

Carmony is 31 yrs.old, and from a small town in Texas, where she cheered in high school, and went on to college and graduate from Texas A&M! She is currently in medical sales and has ALWAYS been successful at what she does. She's a hard worker, sophisticated, charming, and has a precious mom, and one older brother. She tragically lost her father after we graduated from high school.

A little about her personality!.... She is a loving person, and is ready to settle down and begin a life with someone. She hates the "going out" scene, and who can blame her! She's extremely witty, and funny. At first, she may seem reserved, and needs someone who can open her up, and "hang" with her sense of humor. She's a good combination of sophistication, yet doesn't forget where she came from :)

What she's looking for in someone else (in no particular order!).... Educated, trustworthy, ambitious, athletic, loving, christian, nurturing, and can maybe two-step to some good ole' country songs!

If you think you know of someone who fits the description above, and will be appreciative of someone like her, please leave a comment or e-mail me at:

Deer heads

Since we've purchased land, I'm so consumed with ideas and thoughts about decor for the kids rooms. My little sis has a deer head with glitter antlers. I'm in love! I'm wanting more of a rustic theme. I'm thinking a cozy and warm cabin feel, with white, white, and more white. White beds, white trim, white chipped furniture with hints of blues, pinks, browns, and black.

Here are the deer heads I love! I wish I could afford these! Maybe I can find some in Canton with glitter!

Found here!

One Man's Trash

I love my "alley girl." She's our neighbor who puts things out for the trash man, and I run over and get it! We clean it up with some bleach, and lysol, and it's like brand new! I look forward every week to see what "alley girl" has sitting out! Here are some items that we've gotten so far! If you're in the area, and would like me to get you some things, I can post what's out there the night before! :)

Sleepy head

Over here at our house, having a 2 year old, and moving her to a bigger bed, was a BIG mistake. :)
She's now in and out of our room constantly! We moved her room upstairs, so she's constantly crawling down the stairs, etc. We have now resorted to her sleeping on the floor in our bedroom. This may sound terrible, but she thinks it's a slumber party!

We have told her to not come downstairs. So, this is where we found her.

She rarely takes an afternoon nap now, so this is where we find her.

Sister just got her first hair cut. She just got a trim, and our hair dresser sprayed a strand of pink! My pics are on my other camera, but here are a few I have on my current one.
