Grocery store

I get asked all the time how I take the girls to the grocery store with me.  Well, the picture below will help you understand why the answer to that question most of the time is that I don't! Because this is what happens when I DO...


As if I don't already turn enough heads having two in my cart that look just alike, we add balloons to the mix! They are loving balloons right now and go crazy when we walk in the door and the floral department has them everywhere. I need to record it sometime. They go nuts. So, I buy them each one to help me get through my list. And it works---for a little while!

Then we move onto the milk. Another thing they LOVE (i.e. grocery cart).  So, they got it. 3 of them. They can't keep the straw in for more than 5 minutes so after Sally Kate's straw fell thru twice I just said to heck with it and bought a whole box of straws...

Don't you know Winn Dixie is ALWAYS glad to see us!!!:) We've only all been back one time since!!

Speaking of 30...

I can't believe I've reached another decade! I still feel like I am/should be in college at times but am reminded ever so often and on so many different levels that's not the case!  I went from being 20 and a junior in college to getting married at 22, living in 4 different places, having 2 babies at 29 and being married 8 years by the time I turned 30. So, I am guessing things can go from one end of the spectrum to another in your 20's and that the 30's aren't quite so extreme?! It's been 10 of the best and hardest years of my life but I am who I am today because of it and I have to say I am thankful.  Not only did I fall in love with the most wonderful man on the planet but so many sweet and precious friends have come into my life. There's nothing like the work of the Lord's hand in a friendship and every place I have lived in the past decade He has been so faithful in giving me dear friends along the way (not to mention the ones He so graciously gave in the decade before that!) I have been blessed with a wonderful family whose love for me and for them continues to grow. I was given wonderful in-laws in my 20's who are and continue to be such a highlight of my life. My two baby girls who I (we) prayed for, for so long are just my heart and if the Lord didn't surprise us all by giving us two at one time...mercy, mercy. His ways knocked my socks off that day...

I am one blessed woman who is thankful for so many, many things, but especially for the start of another decade. Here's to another healthy one full of love for my Lord and for those around me...

Dancing on mama's 30th

We have two little dancers on our hands...Simmons especially.  What better birthday present than to have your 15 month old girls dancing to "Dirt Road Anthem" by Jason Aldean?

Fun with Gigi

My mom came for a week and of course the girls loved having her here! She is such a big help to me (us) on so many levels and for that I am very thankful! Here are a few quick shots before she headed back home...
