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!

Karate Kid

Aleck has been taking karate for a little over a year now.  Last week Aleck passed testing to receive his 1st degree purple belt.  Today, he attended his second tournament.  He started with breaking a board. DSC_9452_edited-1

Next, he competed in the forms part of the tournament.



I was one proud momma when he took first place in forms.


Next was sparring.  He is going to have to work on his tough guy face.  He smiled almost the entire time he sparred.


Of course, the biggest smile of all came when he won first place in sparring.

We are so proud of our little karate kid!
