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!

Conversations From The Backseat

Let me preface this with I have absolutely no idea how this conversation between AJ and Ella originated, but this is where my ears perked up and I came in.


Ella (talking to AJ):  Mommy can grow a baby in her belly.

Aleck:  Ella, Momma is WAY too old to grow a baby in her belly!!!

Aleck:  Isn’t that right, Momma?!?!

Me:   (Insert sarcasm) Uhmmmmm.  Yeah.  Thanks, honey.

Western Day

For the last couple of weeks, Ella has been talking about dancing at school and “waving at the stars”.  She was talking about practicing for Western Day, which was today.  I thought Ella might be a little shy in front of a crowd, but she danced around and had so much fun.  Aleck wanted his pants tucked in so you could see the stitching on his boots.  At the end of the program, the 1st through 5th grade kids were dancing to some pop song.  They had choreographed moves, but it was a bit chaotic.  That was just perfect for Aleck.  With encouragement from Dede, Aleck stood up, bowed to the audience, and broke out in his break dancing routine.  Those little people of mine never seem to stop amazing me.  They sure do bring their Mommy more joy than she ever could have imagined.
