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!

Week in Review

  • Aleck had his first soccer practice with the YMCA.  At first, he wasn’t really sure what to do, but by the end of practice, he was kicking the ball back and forth and running down the field.  He loved it!  I volunteered to be team mom. 
  • Ella saw her ENT.  Her ears look fine, but the right eustachian tube is coming out.
  • I am addicted to iced coffee.
  • Aleck said, “Mom, princesses have princesses.  Right?” and “Mom, Rapunzel had some big hair.”
  • Ella saw a man on an industrial riding lawn mower while we were out running errands.  She pointed and said, “Pappaw!”  It warmed my heart.   She remembers seeing Pappaw mowing the grass when we were home.
  • Aleck was talking about a classmate and he said, “A…. doesn’t know how to color as good as I do cause she’s a dirl (girl).”  We had a lengthy discussion that girls can do anything boys can do, and that if she can’t color it has nothing to do with her being a “dirl”.
  • After two cups of regular coffee, three cups of iced coffee, a massive headache and tummy ache, I am no longer addicted to ice coffee.
  • Ella is tearing it up on her tricycle.  I think she may be ready for a bike with training wheels.
  • Ella and Aleck attended Savannah and Peyton’s birthday party.  Since the party, Ella has been singing “Happy Birthday To You” at random times during the day.
  • Glenda and I spent the entire day together on Saturday.  She is here for the kid’s baptism and our confirmation.  We had such a wonderful “girl’s day”.  We laughed so much.  While I got my hair done, Glenda hit Grapevine Main Street.  She found an upscale consignment shop and she helped me pick out a few outfits for church.  You might remember that Glenda made a visit back in March.  That was the visit that she and Dede raided my closet and threw half my clothes away and Glenda took me shopping for new clothes.  This may become a biannual event.  I hope so.  I introduced Glenda to the fabulous world of Ikea.  She didn’t buy anything, but since they are planning on building a house soon, she made a wish list.  The highlight of the day was Glenda’s $10 leather cowboy boots that she found at Plato’s Closet.  Her goal for the day was to find a pair of boots and she was so excited.  She said, “I bought my first pair of boots twenty years ago with Pat and I have fond memories of that day.  Every time I wear these boots, I am going to remember this special day with you.”  That sweet sister of mine is so wonderful!
