Thursday Tidbits!

  • Thursday already! Ack! This teeth removal surgery is coming real quick! I am just praying all goes well without any complications. "Aint nobody got time for that!"

  • I just have to say God bless my husband. Oh my word he has put up with so much from me these past 6 months and then Saturday after the party I think I completely lost it. So many emotions and he got the back end of everything, I feel terrible about the way I acted but he didn't kick me out, he just loved me through it and that is what true love is my friends. When you are at an all time low and they can keep you moving, that to me is a great treasure. Brent and I can get very shall I say passionate, for lack of a better word,  when we argue but at the end we always love each other, something I was never taught growing up so sometimes I can act VERY immature and that is not good but by the grace of God we have worked though our battles and came out better for them.

  • I popped this bad boy open at about 9am Sunday morning, that birthday party wore me smooth out. I was glad to have a left over Coke in the fridge and the straw just makes it cute :)

  • Today Desiree and I are having a girls evening :) pedicures and coffee are on the agenda and I cannot wait! We have been best friends for fourteen years but we have known each other and been friends for twenty! This girl has seen me through everything, we used to be as different as night and day but I think as we are becoming older I can see our tastes in things becoming similar. I know we will most likely be friends til the end :)

  • I know I'm always putting pictures of my dogs on here but we have a cat too! Chip or as Luke calls him Chipper. He is sweet but also a good hunter and catches mice and snakes around our yard I love him for that. He looked so funny sitting in this basket I had to snap a picture!

  • I love taking pictures of pretty things around the house. I have no idea why? This seemed like a perfect shot! That might be kinda pretty in a print to frame too humm........

  • I've been doing a lot of shopping lately trying to get the weather to change! ha! Shopping for me goes in spurts one month I will see and buy a ton of new clothes then for months and months I won't buy a thing..... Found some cute stuff at Target recently this shirt and a pair of mint skinnies that I can't wait to wear (not together!). The dots on the shirt are navy.

  • We finished off the last of the birthday cup cakes last night! Now just have to get rid of the cookie cake. Good Grief!

  • I love love love wearing Brent's work socks around the house, they are the warmest things I find that aren't boots.

  • Thinking of darkening up my hair some more, I was looking though some old pictures and I loved my dark hair but still not sure I'm ready to say bye to the blond. Decisions decisions.

  • The other day Brent bought the Hunter Hayes album for me then used one of the sweet songs for his ring tone all without me knowing. I thought that was pretty sweet :))

  • I've had my DSLR camera for well over a year but I'm really starting to play with it more. I would love nothing more than to be able to take good pictures of my kids so I'm kinda hoping to squeeze a photography class in at Bedford this summer! How fun would that be!

  • We don't have much going on this weekend. Brent's going to spend most of it working on his car, I've gotta go find a new vacuum and hoping Sunday is nice for some pictures of Luke.
Also please say a little prayer for my little nephew Waylon, he is having surgery at Children's in Little Rock tomorrow and of course we are just worried sick. Praying for a successful surgery and easy recovery.

I stumbled upon this post this afternoon. I won't believe it was by happy accident.I feel like I could have written these words, how crazy is blogging sometimes?
 She wrote this in 2011 and I checked her about page and she has another baby. God is so good. I will let this be hope for myself. I will not let myself be sad today.

crazy awesome side note: she was featured for her book on my sidebar at a blog I read daily and I just didn't click it today. But was looking around at "what I wore wednesday" posts and one lead me to her!

What I'm Lovin Wednesday! {Pinky Edition}

Can I just say how ready I am for spring and summer!? I am about to go crazy with all this cold and rain and no sun! I am so ready to spend my afternoons outside and get my sunroof open!

Found these beauties on the Toms website last week and just had to have them! Granny flowers are my jam and I'm thinking these were made for me! Can't wait for them to get here but I'm thinking I'll be waiting even longer for the weather to warm up so I can wear them.....

Have you heard they brought back the original Herbal!? I for one was SO excited! I've thought more than once over the years how I wish I could find this I just hope it's not a temporary thing......

Love love love this pink jean jacket! How cute!

Also love actually having nails to paint and play with! Think I'll get this for my next manicure.....

What are you loving lately?

To Lucas on your 4th birthday....

Oh my little man where do I even begin. I can't believe you are 4 years old today! I am writing you this in hopes of one day you will read it and know how loved and cherished you are.
You are truly one amazing little boy. I am so proud to be your momma.You are my heart and your daddy's pride and joy.

I think your main objective in life to get me or your dad laughing. You love making others laugh but you won't just to it to anybody, you have to know them. You are rarely shy but sometimes when you aren't feeling whats going on you will hug my leg not wanting to talk to others.

You have a wild but gentle spirit, you love your family and friends so much, you are always talking about one of them or wanting to go see someone. Lately when we go somewhere you will say "is it just you me and daddy, no one else?" meaning you want your grandparents or someone else to go too! 

But you aren't always perfect :) you are very hard headed (from me) then mixed with your dads strong will some days I don't know if I will survive but I do and then I miss you when you do go to sleep.

You have become quite the momma's boy over the last year. We spend a lot of one on one time together so I think it's only natural. I am really enjoying it though I know you won't always want to hang out and snuggle with me.
But alas you are your daddy's boy, you act so similar to him it's scary. I will never forget when you were in my tummy I would always tell people that I really hope he looks like Brent but has my personality. I know God was having a great chuckle about that one!
You think daddy is pretty much the best thing to walk the planet. When he is gone for work I can really tell you have started missing him. You love when you get to go do 'boy things' together even if it is just a trip to the hardware store.

You love your pets, cars, lighting McQueen, movies, music, candy, puzzles, drawing, learning, being silly and so much more. You are full of personality and there is never a dull moment when you are in the room.

You are the light of my life, my everything and I am so beyond blessed to be your mom.

Happy Birthday my sweet big 4 year old! I love you very much!
