About Me

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!

Valentine’s Party

We had our Valentine’s party at school today.  I’m a bit surprised at how much I love being room mom.  I love planning the parties!  Who knew, right?  I couldn’t have done it without so much help from the other mothers.


We started with a craft project.  We made a musical shaker using paper plates, foam stickers, red pom poms and bells.

Using My Digital Studio software from Stampin Up, I made this Valentine Bingo card.  The kids used little valentine smarties to cover each letter.  They didn’t really get the concept of bingo, and yelled “BINGO” every time they covered a letter, but it was still adorable.  After each game, they got to eat one piece of candy, which they loved.


Next, we used chop sticks to pick up the smarties and put them in small cupcake liners. 

When our musical shakers dried, we danced the Hokey Pokey.  Every time we had to shake a body part, we also shook our shaker.  This part of the party made me realize I need to get myself back in the gym.  By the end of the song, I was T-I-R-E-D!


Since Ella gets out at noon, she joined us for lunch.  This was her second lunch of the day, but she sat down and ate like it was her first.  She was so well behaved and happy to be hanging with the older kids.  She makes her mommy so proud.



This little man did such a good job listening.  He was so proud that his mommy was helping with the party.

I adore all these silly faces and am so thankful for the wonderful times this past year.
