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!

When You Grow Up

When you grow up, oh, how I am going to miss:

  • The way you tell people, “This is my baby sista, Ella.”
  • How you never meet a stranger.  When we go to the playground, you have talked to every single person before we leave.
  • How you love anything to do with drawing and art.  You have such a wonderfully creative imagination.
  • Spending time with you drawing while we wait for Ella to wake from her nap.
  • The applause and cheers from you when I go pee pee on the potty.
  • The way you sing the ABC song when you wash your hands.
  • Rubbing your back during naptime, as we both drift off to sleep.
  • You crawling into our bed in the morning with a baby doll and your blanket.
  • You coming into our room every morning and saying, “I want some orange juice and to watch Sesame Street, please.”
  • Listening to you sing “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star” when you are winding down to go to sleep.
  • The way you pat your baby doll on the back and kiss her on the head right before you fall asleep.
  • The way you run to the window screaming, “gardage twuck” to see the truck on garbage pick up day.
  • How you absolutely love fruit.
  • How you ask, “what’s this?” what seems like a hundred times a day.
  • The way you follow me around in the grocery store with your baby doll in your miniature grocery cart.
  • How you run to the door to great Daddy when he comes home from work.
