Phone Dump Sunday.

What an amazing weekend. 
Wanna See?

We had quite a few play dates last week. 
This picture was too cute not to share. 
They both went home with these hats. 
Saturday morning Jackson had
 a date at Miss Lisa's.
If you live anywhere near Atlanta and
 your babies need their hair cut. 
I highly recommend Miss Lisa's cuts for kids
Jackson adores her and doesn't cry.
 This is huge. 
She also has a playroom. 


This Saturday Miss Lisa's new 
stylist Miss April cut Jacks hair. 



It looks great. Lunch at Leon's 
to celebrate the day. 


We got ready for Marah to start her 
softball season as a Bulldog!
We are so excited for the first game
 in a couple weeks.
I made the dugout names for the girls.

 Daddy had a night with Bub's and
 Mommy got to meet some girlfriends out.
Before. Mommy duty. 
 After. Ready for the night. 
It was so fun. Great company, food, and drinks.
We may have closed the restaurant down.
 Sunday Daddy met Uncle Justin for 
some golf and we had some 
family patio time at lunch. 
It was so nice out.
 We came home. Had family nap time. HEAVEN.
Breakfast for dinner, and are finishing the
 night off with these and the Oscars.
Jackson says "bye" guys. 
It's time for bed. 
Hope you all had a great weekend.

Pinterest Lurve

Do you Pinterest?
If you don't you should. It is an personal bookmarking site you share.
I lurve it. Seriously. It's so fun and inspiring to me. 
Kinda cool to see all of your pins grouped together too.

Here are my 10 favorite "pins" so far.


1: Numerous catchy prints.
The neat thing is you get linked back to 
where to purchase the items or where they came from.

2: Dream outfits.
You can be looking at the JCrew website 
and pin something to your Pinterest.

3: Pictures I just Adore
This one takes my breath away and makes 
me miss my Grandma so much I ache.
In an inspiring way if that makes sense.

4: I "pin" buttons that are so me and bestie. 
It made me laugh out loud.

6: Kitchens. I have a thing for kitchen's.
It is my dream one day to be as amazing in the kitchen as my dad.
I have so many great memories in our kitchen. Even if half of them
 dad is telling me not to mess with the food. ;)

I am a glass always full gal. Why live any other way.

Birthdays are a big deal in our house.
Can you guess the theme?

10: Tattoo's I love.
I am thinking for my 30th this is what I want.
To get my next one.
I have it in my head. Just have to get it on paper.

Confessions for you

6 {silly} Confessions 

I saw this over {here} I love her blog and 
thought it was a cute idea.
So here we go.

{1} I love candy frozen. Everything. Chocolate, gummies, twizzlers. Yum.

{2} I wear flip flops 10 months out of the year. Even if it's cold just not when it's freezing. I hate socks.

{3} I am deathly afraid of swimming in the ocean. I love the beach but, no ocean swimming for me. Give me a pool any day. I think sharks are going to get me. 

{4} I love to paint. I love how it's a cheap quick way to make something feel fresh. My husband might hate this about me.

{5} I only like the middle of an Oreo. Good thing Jackson likes the cookie part. We make great Oreo sharing buddies.

{6} We would love to move to another state but, we love the people who are so close to us. If we could pack up our buddies, we'd be gone in two shakes. 

Got any confessions?
If you share yours let me know.
Happy Weekend!

Elephant Lunch

At about 11 this morning I got word that 
 was having the elephants eat lunch at Centennial Park.
Needless to say a quick phone call to Nanny later 
we were on our way to see them.
I mean who doesn't want to see Elephants eat lunch up close?

Jackson was a little bashful at first but, 
once they showed up he was pretty excited.
What a fun Thursday afternoon outing. 


He loves Juggling. Uncle Justin can do it but,
 I think the clown had you beat Jus.


Eating Watermelons! They step on them and then 
suck up the pieces with their trunks. 
Jackson says they ate 17 one hundred of them. 


Silly Clowns. They handed out clown noses when 
the elephant lunch was over.
Jackson thinks they are pretty funny.



Fun times.

Photo Booth Silly


Jackson loves Photo Booth so much.
He calls it button pictures.
Since he gets to hit the button. ;)

One day when he looks back at pictures I think the 
good majority of the ones of us will be photo booth. 

I love it!



Man I love this kid. 
Remember to "cheese" it up today.

Happy Birthday.

To the man who has with out a 
doubt changed my life.
{We were babies when we met but,
 knew right off}

It will be 9 years together next month and
 I am beyond blessed to have you as my husband.

To have you as the father of our son.
 The moment we became three 
still brings me to tears.

We love you so much daddy!
Happy Birthday!

Daddy got a one of a kind Jackson original 
gift for his birthday. I had him draw daddy a 
picture and we made him a shirt.
I found the tutorial here.
It's a bit abstract but, made with love.

We hope your day is amazing! 
WE LOVE YOU!

Cookies and Cream.

Just my two guys enjoying a milkshake.


Or in Jackson's words a "Shaker"


He was drinking mine his so fast we started telling him
take a deep breath before your next sip.
So he would breathe in and out then 
give me this "ok mom now?" look. 


Seriously. Cookies and Cream milkshakes and my guys.
Doesn't get much better than this.


Hope you guys have a great weekend. 
A cookies and cream kinda weekend. :)

 Do you follow Take Heart?  If you don't, you should.
Danielle is so much fun and has a little man who is absolutely adorable!
I love a fun headband like the next girl so when she announced she was
 hosting a swap in time for Valentines Day. I jumped on board.
My lovely swap partner was Allison from Paisley Sprouts.

Drumroll please.
My headband is so cute!
 Perfect to wear to Mardi Gras don't you think?!

Rocking my new headband. 
Allison found it on etsy by Lillian Ray.
