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!

Happy Birthday, Pappaw!




Dad's 80th birthday

We made a last minute trip to Mississippi to celebrate my Dad’s 80th birthday.  Since Eryn’s due date was September 7th, I wasn’t planning on going, but Mason surprised us 3 weeks early so I was able to make the trip.

With the exception of Gary, all my siblings were able to make it.  Donny and John came from Arkansas, Darryl came from Columbus, MS.  Glenda and Brian live in Starkville, my hometown,  and I drove from Texas.  With seven children, 14 grandchildren, and multiple great grandchildren, we have been blessed with a HUGE family.  It is rare that so many of us can get together at the same time, so these memories are precious. 

Happy Birthday, Daddy.  In case you can’t tell by the gathering, your kids adore you!
