Oh my we're in trouble!!!

God has blessed us with some purty gals!!! We're in trouble for sure! I have to brag but I think these pictures of my girls are just adorable and say a lot about their personality.  

My girlie girl (ALL GIRL-likes to put make up, wants to dress up all.the.time, hair has to be just right) smart Arianna-almost looks like a minature cheerleader. Ay!!!

 And then there's my Avonlea.....

Oh geez...Avonlea, our miss little personality-crazy and funny!!!
Not one day goes by where she doesn't make me laugh so hard!!

Some of the Greatest Feelings in the world...

Some of the best and greatest feelings in the world (and in my opinon) are those that you feel so good about and just give you a sense of happiness, accomplishment, and a feeling of high, etc. I've decided to list some in no particular order just because....
1. Knowing that you are not alone in this world (God takes care of me and my family and friends love me!).
2. Having a clean house. I'm sorry people, but when someone can knock on the door unexpectedly and you can simply invite them in without having to be embarrassed of what your house looks like, this to me is the best feeling
3. Putting on your pjs or sweats or whatever makes you sit back and relax-after a hard long day, this is very much needed
4. When you know you look good and someone actually points it out :) or compliments period.
5. When you've worked so hard at something (party planning, cooking, baking, cleaning, working your butt off, etc...) and someone actually appreciates you for it.
6. A hug and kiss from your spouse and/or child
7. Knowing my children are healthy and alive on a daily basis
8. Finishing something you thought you couldn't do (example for me: a marathon)
9. Starbucks! OR A good margarita or Amaretto sour-yes, sometimes after a stressful day I have to say it feels dang good!
10. The feeling that you know everything is going to be okay and nothing can touch you.
11. Making people you love laugh, smile and happy.
12. Being able to bless people who need help in some way or another
13. Friends who appreciate you and make the effort to hang out
14. Laughing until your stomach hurts
15. Being debt free
16. Vacation!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
17. Crawling into bed and snuggling
18. A handwritten letter, receiving cards in the mail, or just getting a special text or email from a special person in your life.
19. When people around you actually meet your expectations or plainly listen to you when you know you are right.
20. Having to pee or poop so bad and finally getting to a toilet..hahaha

Those are just some of the many most awesome feelings in the world (to me). There are so many more that the list can go on, but i'll stop so as not to bore you any longer. What are yours?

Pre-K graduation...omg!

My child is going into Kindergarten in just a few short months ya'll!!! Seems as though she was just born the other day. My goodness! Well last week she graduated from Pre-K. It was so cute. They had a mini graduation and all. They walked in to the theme graduation song, sang some cute songs, recited a few things they learned, and had a picture slide show. Yes, I did get emotional and almost cry (okay I did) but then had to stop myself and say, "This is freakin' pre-k!!!"

Here are a few pictures of her graduation.

One shower after another

People I've been hiatus! So sorry....I've been too busy to sit down and focus on a blog. I doubt I was missed. :)
Here's what I've been up planning!!! I mean seriously. I feel as though all I do is showers lately (only 2 really, but it seems like a lot). I've got too many people around me who are pregnant. Don't take me wrong...I've enjoyed doing it and can't wait to do more in the future. So here are a few pics....
Momma to be Emily. Little baby Olivia will be making her debut any day now.  
The Table-I decided to go with fun bright girlie spring colors

My sister-in-law Angela pregnant with Owen Patrick
 Angela is big into vintage...So I decided to throw her a vintage feel shower. I have to be honest and real here, but I was so proud of this shower that I pinned it unto pinterest. Am I wrong in doing so? I worked soooo hard on this one and did it all by myself minus the food. All I did was the chocolate covered popcorn and pretzels...aside from that, food was taken care of Angela's best friend, my mother-in-law and her mother-in-law. I did all the planning and decor. I asked my husband if that was going too far (pinning pics on pinterest) because I'm actually a bit embarrassed that I pinned my own pictures. Whatever! I did it! So here it is.....

Isn't the popcorn colored layers so cute?!! Proud of that too. Lol
Sign in table
Drink Table-You can't really tell here, but the paper hanging
is chalk board scrap paper. I labeled the drinks on there.
I added the window and added the pics behind it. I also took the pregnant pics myself.
So anyone want to hire me? I'm that good right?! I mean dang I've been a little Martha Stewart lately. Haha! I'm so kidding and if you know me, you know I'm being sarcastic.
Next...another friends shower on Friday! This one however due to it being last minute, will not be an actual shower...more like a friends get together and eat dinner at a place kind of get together. All I have to do is make some kind of dessert and perhaps decorate a small table.

Following'll be three weddings!!! We've got a busy few months ahead.
