Earlier today, I ran out to get a few groceries before the "big" snow/ice storm that is projected for tomorrow. First, I hit Walmart and then headed to our local grocery store for meat. {I DO NOT buy meat from WM} Anyway, I turned into the parking lot and was aggrivated that I could not find a parking spot. I drove around for a few minutes and decided to leave. I pulled out and then something told me I needed to turn around & finish my shopping before I took Rylee to ballet.

 As I am hurrying through the store, I spotted this man {about my age} with two small kids. I notice he had a small limp and seemed happy but I didn't pay them any mind and kept shopping. After I loaded my cart with what I needed, I headed to the check out. . . . only to find a long line of people. I stood in one line for a few minutes and decided to check out the line next to me. It only had one was the man & his kids. He didn't have much in his cart....milk, a cake mix, icin…

Where I Shop

Kelly's Korner is doing SHOW US YOUR LIFE FRIDAY and today's theme is- Where you shop. So, I am going to let y'all know a few of my favorite places. :)

While I do love T.J. Maxx, Target & Dillards.....there are a few places back home {Texas} that I love.

For all you Texan's, you know about First Monday Trade Days in Canton. I get a lot of my funky t-shirts from my favorite vendors. The first one is My Tiara Fits .
I have this shirt & LOVE it!

The second is Annette's Touch of Class
 I always get a ton of compliments on this t-shirt! ha!

I have two daughters so of course, I am always shopping for them. I do shop at all the regular stores - Gymboree, Gap and Target. 


 Here are a few of my favorites.
My AWSOME bow lady & friend, Mica! She owns 2 Cute Bowtique.
I have been buying bows from here since I was pregnant with Rylee.

I also LOVE 3 Monkey's! They are a litt…

I Hope You Dance....

I hope you never lose your sense of wonder
You get your fill to eat but always keep that hunger
May you never take one single breath for granted
God forbid love ever leave you empty handed
I hope you still feel small when stand beside the ocean
Whenever one door closes I hope one more opens
Promise me that you'll give faith a fighting chance
And when you get the choice to sit it out or dance

I Hope You Dance.......

The Bachelor

I am an official reality tv junkie. Every season I swear I am not going to watch The Bachelor. . . . . but for some reason, I get sucked back in. This year, the BACHELOR is from Dallas. . . . .woohoo! I have to watch, right? Last nights episode was great. I say great because he let go crazy Michelle. If you have been watching The Bachelor, you know who I am talking about. I kind of wanted him to keep her around to see what she would say/do next but I am sure he was tired of her games. I hope next week is even better. :)

Until next time . . . . .xoxo


Miss Landry Cate, you are 7 MONTHS old! Well, actually, you were 7 months on Jan 10th. - mommy was just a little late posting this blog. ;) I can't believe it's been 7 months already. You are the light of my life. We all love you to pieces.

Until next time.... xoxo

Happy New Year!

Wow! Where did 2009 go? If it's one thing I've learned over the years, it's that days are long but the years go by fast. The last ten years have been such a rollercoaster ride for me. There were a lot of sad times but a ton of great ones as well. I am hoping that the next ten will be smoothe and happy! Like most people, I always make a NEW YEARS RESOLUTION list..... that I don't stick to. Let's face it, who does? I may start off on the right track but somewhere down the hill I veer off the path. So, this year, I have decided to make a NEW YEARS WISH LIST. That way, if I get off the path, it's ok, I won't feel so bad. ha!

Here is my WISH list for 2010:

~ Be healthy! Yes, I need to lose 20lbs. This is the time to get off my butt and do it.... I want to feel good about myself, again.
~ Be a better mom & wife.
~ Get organized. My closet is o-u-t of control!
~ Cook more....haha, ok....that may be reaching too far! ;)
~ Be a better friend, sister/sister in law …
