Best Part of My Weekend

Had a wonderful weekend!
Terry had his 10 year class reunion.
Jordan's mom was in town so we braved Chuck-e-Cheese.
We saw Iron Man 3 on the IMAX in 3D as a treat for Lyric (since he has been wearing his mouth guard for 2 whole weeks... post on it tomorrow).
My favorite part of the weekend... a couch nap with my not so little man. We snuggled and it was awesome!

Another Giveaway

So, in an earlier post I mentioned how I really want to amp up the traffic flow to my blog. Lucky for my one of my blogger mommy friends is doing an amazing giveaway!!!!!! I am so excited! Sarah from Our Journey is doing a blog template giveaway! I loved her new look that she got from Maree at Grey Loves Design, and now I have the chance to get something that fits my crazy family stories... perfect!
My space is defiantly in need of a facelift... Wish me luck friends and stay tuned for (hopefully) an amazing fresh new look!

We are moving things all over the house!
I took the day off yesterday and we moved and cleaned the garage, moved the playroom, combined the kids closets, and got Jordan moved into her new room! 
I should have everything together by this evening and I will take lots of pictures so you all can see... 
I am so excited!

A little shout out to Sonic... Thank you for the amazing drinks yesterday! It was hot and I don't think I would have made it through the day without you!

Finally my hair is growing!
I am pretty faithful to my haircut every three weeks. I have a hairstyle that requires maintenance and my hair generally grows pretty fast. I am very excited to say that after having the same hairstyle for four years, I am finally letting it grow! I haven't had my hair cut since February 16th! Go me!!!!

Long Hair... Terry and I 2007

The original short cut... 2009.

Blogger Friends...

Today I realized that I have been blogging for over a year... and it has been a pretty good year! I have loved being able to share the craziness of my life with family and friends that we do not get to see everyday. I like that I have an outlet to vent, seek advice, and truly just release my emotions, pure and raw. I like that I am able to take a little time (sometimes not enough) and write. I have always loved writing and I have always wanted to be a better writer.

This year I have written 72 entries to the blog.
I have had 2,256 pageviews.
Audiences from all over the world... Shout out to Alaska!
27 comments on my entries.

I am hoping for the next year of my blog to increase all of the numbers. Not so much because I want to see high numbers, but because I love this. I love writing and I love reading and following the blogs of other inspired people in their little virtual space of heaven.
Today, I have spent some time finding new stories and spaces that I have fallen lost into the words of the writers. I am excited to follow and make new blogging friends.

Here is to another great, crazy year with my family, friends, and my blog!

Weekend Love

This weekend was just what I needed. I woke up this morning feeling refreshed and motivated.
My weekend started early on Friday. I left my office at 3:15 and went straight to the nail salon for a little nail therapy... It was fabulous! Friday night Jordan, Amanda, and I went to celebrate Amanda's new job. A laid back and fun girls night was perfect!
Congrats Amanda! 

Saturday the kids and I did puzzles, watched Mickey Mouse Twice Upon a Christmas (I know, I know... but they love it), and went to Gramie and PaPa's house for dinner. My mom made amazing turkey sausage and potatoes and I surprised my dad with an orange dreamsicle cake... It was to die for!

Sunday we spent the day with my in-laws... had lunch and spent the entire afternoon outside. I have a farmers tan and two babies who played hard! Later that night we went to quarter mania bowling and the kids were asleep before we were done.
Lyric... Headed to see Ma-Maw and Pa-Paw

She was loving her shades and pink elephant... cracking me up!
This guy :)

The weekend was amazing. I was reminded of how blessed I am.
This week will be wonderful, and the week after, and the many to follow. I will constantly remind myself that even though I am busy and sometimes may not be doing the most lavish of things, I am making memories and loving. Happy Week all! <3

I am participating in the March of Dimes walk for babies!

Most of you know my sweet Remedy had a rough go early in her life... and this will be our second year doing the walk. If you would like to donate please click here... I am starting a little late and every penny counts. My goal this year is higher and I have about $150 in cash donations. Thank you all so much in advance... You have no idea how much your donation means to so many families around the world.
