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!

Happy 50th

Some friends helped surprise Tom for a birthday celebration today.  The first couple of families showed up and Tom said, “Did you know they were coming over?”  I just kind of shrugged my shoulders and went on about my business.  When the next two families showed up, Tom knew it was a surprise party for him.  His face lit up like a kid on Christmas morning when he realized it was all about him.  It was awesome!



The kids had a great time swimming while the parents visited.

Tom doesn’t really like care, but he loves my brownies.

We only had one near CPR event with all these kids in the pool.  OK, maybe I’m exaggerating just a little.

Let’s celebrate!


The next door neighbor even made a visit to wish Tom a Happy Birthday.

Dickey family, Siek family, Wolfe family and Campbell family, we love you guys and are so blessed to call you friends.

To steal a phrase from my kids, “It was the best day, ever!”

Happy 50th, Honey.  Here’s to the next 50!
