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!

Scarecrows and Halloween Decorations

While Tom was at the Stone Mountain Highland Games, the kids and I decorated for Halloween.  We even made a scarecrow.  Aleck wanted to make a traditional scarecrow standing up, but I convinced him that one sitting in a chair would be way cooler.  I already had a pumpkin that has a light in it.  The truth of the matter is I took the easier route.  I had no idea how to build a standing scarecrow.  The kids were happy with the end result.  That’s really all that matters, isn’t it?

Oh yeah, the North Texas Caledonian Pipes and Drums took second place overall at Stone Mountain.  The drum section took 1st place.  Way to go, baby.  The hard work paid off.  We are so proud of you guys!
