About Me

My photo
Welcome to my blog. I'm a Mississippi country girl transplanted to Grapevine, TX. I have been blessed with a great husband, and my kiddos, Aleck and Ella. When I'm not eating bon bons on the couch, I am my kid's room mom, PTA member, Sunday School teacher, taxi driver, amateur photographer and personal chef. When I'm not doing those things, I'm running a small jewelry business, 2nd Amendment Jewelry (www.2ndamendmentjewelry.com), that I started with my twin sister, Glenda. It's a crazy and busy life, but I wouldn't trade it for anything in this world. I am so thankful for all the blessings in my life!

Baby Ella Skye is here!

I was admitted to the hospital Monday morning to be induced with Ella. Thanks to an epidural, I had a very easy labor and Ella blessed us with her arrival at 4:44 p.m. Monday afternoon. She weighed 7 lb, 5 1/2 oz and was 20 inches long. She has beautiful rosebud lips and dark brown hair. She looks very much like Aleck did when he was a newborn, with the exception that Aleck had red hair. After spending one night in the hospital, we headed home to begin life with Ella. The week has gone surprisingly smooth. Thankfully, Tom has taken off through the end of next week and that has been a blessing. Praise God for the blessings in our life and this wonderful season that we get to experience all over again.

Arriving July 6th

I have been so busy preparing for Ella Skye to arrive that I haven't made time to post to my blog. I will be admitted to the hospital Monday, July 6th, to be induced. The last 9 1/2 months have flown by. It seems like just yesterday that I found out I was pregnant. I have absolutely cherished each and every bit of this pregnancy, knowing that Ella will be the last addition to our family. I am so looking forward to meeting you little girl, but I am a little saddened that I only have a few more days to feel you moving around in my belly. Thank you, God, for the last 9 1/2 months. Thank you for giving me the desires of my heart.
