where I have been...

I have been missing, I know, we have been very busy around here. Saturday, I had class, my mom came to visit on Sunday. Then Sunday night through Tuesday we painted and completely redone Tatum's bedroom (she has a big girl room now.)Saturday is my last day of class, I STILL have 3 papers to write and then Saturday night, we have Josh's high school reunion back home. Sunday we start our camping vacation ( haven't started packing for that either!)When we return from camping, it's Ollie's birthday. We are busy, busy, busy and we have been enjoying the summer! So I promise I will be back again soon! I will have lots of pictures to share of everything!!!!!

I love my bag!!!!

Tatum the princess

On Memorial Day, Grandpa Ron took some pictures of Tatum.
She dressed herself in her dress, necklace and watch.
She asked me to put her hair in pigtails and she picked the bands and berets.
Here are the pictures.
I did the editing.

I won!

I am so excited! I love this bag.
I never, never win anything!

I also received the Stiletto Award from Same Sweet Girl: Memoir of a Southern Belle.

First, let us understand the Stiletto… some words that describe it…

Classy – Strong -Exotic – Demure – Extreme – Ultra – Sexy - Bold – Funky

“Walking in extremely high heels is not something that the average woman (or man) will need to do in their everyday life. However, there are times when this skill may be required.” I want to salute the women who balance life, family, and relationships with style and class! Those women who share their experiences with us…who encourage us, inspire us, teach us, make us laugh and basically keep us going! You know who they are! While you read this blog, your family is looking at you wondering what the heck you are laughing about so hard…or why the tissue is necessary for internet browsing. It’s the one that the kids are excited about because a new post means a new craft project or family outing. The one that inspires you to be a better mom, friend, person in general. The one that reminds you that we are all “in this life together” and you’re not the only one going through the hard stuff. The one that you secretly wish your blog was like…

“Heels this high are not meant for clubbing or walking long distances in. They are mainly used for getting from the living room to the bedroom, from the car to the restaurant, or for a short stroll along the catwalk.”

If you’ve received this award, someone out there thinks you deserve it! Be proud! Display the badge with honor! You earned it…after all it means that you brought something special to at least one other person, and really, isn’t that what life’s all about?


This blog award is meant to be shared, to be given out, to be bestowed upon any and ALL women who exemplify what the stiletto represents. If you’ve received this award, here’s what you do:

1. Display your Stiletto Badge of Honor on your sidebar! Wear it with pride…

2. BRAG ABOUT IT! -write a post about your award. Include the link to this page so everyone will understand what it’s all about!

3. SAY THANKS! thank you girl!


5. DO WHAT YOU DO! Keep inspiring and encouraging and sharing your life! We love it and we thank you!
I give this award to.... Jane from and then there was three

Milo went to school

Van took Milo to school for show and tell this morning.
Milo was a big hit.
I was offered 300 hundred dollars from one boy for him and a girl told me she would give me all she had for him. 
Van stood in front of his class and them them all about Milo, then walked him around so everyone could pet him.
