This is why we are married!

FOREWARNING: (The conversation began with him saying how pumped he was that he was going to Memphis in May.  You know the EPIC music festival where all things are good :) It's a man thing I guess.  Or just a reason to get away from the wives.  HAHAHA.  )


We are too much alike. LOL! We talk like teenagers.

Keeping up Resolutions

One of my New Year's Resolutions was to spend more time with my nephews. The time of holding Griffin and singing to him, dancing around and making him giggle. Running around like crazy with Cooper and playing games with 4 yr old rules. I have definately loved spending more time with them. It helps fill that hole in my heart for the want of a child. This is one resolution I am happy to keep up!

Btw Coop loves photobooth on my Ipad :)

Transformed 2012

I was recently blessed with the wonderful opportunity to go to a Women's Conference in Indy with some friends from work and their church. It was AMAZING!!! If you have never heard Tammie Head speak you should because she was amazing. All the different breakout sessions helped shape different aspects of my life and I am just feeling so good after it. God is good!!!

House Envy

I absolutely love my house but recently my dad bought a new house. oh man do I have house envy!! This house is amazing and has such character. Too bad it's in Knox County or I would talk hubs into buying it! I seriously feel like it is out of a magazine of The Smokey Mountains!

When done, place on a layer of paper towels to absorb grease.
