Oh my goodness - can you believe tomorrow is October 1st? Thanksgiving, then Christmas will be here before you know it. 
Speaking of Christmas. I realize some of you like to buy Christmas decor early, but I am not one of those gals who thinks Hobby Lobby putting out their Christmas decor in July is fun. Yesterday, I noticed Target  had an aisle or two of Christmas decor. I mean, can we get through Thanksgiving first? One holiday at a time, and please lets go in order. {end rant} ha! 
Not much going on. Just busy with school, Rylee's dance, and enjoying the cooler temps. 

Happy fall y'all! 


Let's be real -
The minute I found out we were moving to Arkansas, I started to countdown the days until we moved back HOME, which is Texas. It's not like I've never lived anywhere else but Texas, but this was different. I had just had a baby. I didn't want to move away from family, and rob them of time with their niece/granddaughter/great-granddaughter. It was hard to say good-bye. One of the hardest days of my life. 

We moved to Northwest Arkansas on Mother's Day of 2006. We were only supposed to be there for 2 years. I figured, 2 years would fly by. I could do 2 years. Well,  TWO years turned into 7.

In case you missed it, you can read about it here. I was so excited to find a preschool here in SA that fit our needs. I toured it, reserached it, and was beyond happy with my decision. {the school came highly recommened}  Well, that all changed the night of meet the teacher. 
It was on a Friday night, so we all loaded up, and headed out to meet Landry's new preschool teacher. We get there, and they didn't have her on the class roster. I go ask the director, and she says, "oh, that is odd, I see her in the computer, and I have all your financial information, but not sure why she's not on the roster?" Ok, so maybe it was a mistake? After even more issues , momma gut started to kick in. You know that feeling when something is just not right? I had that feeling the entire 20 minutes we were there. I was so disapointed. I thought I had found the right sch…

First Day of School

Tuesday was the first day of school for Landry. I can't believe this time next year, she'll be going to kindergarten. My baby girl is growing up way too fast.

Labor Day Weekend

this past weekend, my brother, SIL, and niece came to visit. We had a great time. The girls loved being together. We hung out, met Doc McStuffins, took a ride on the river walk, and of course ate some great mexican food, and of course, BBQ. 
Such a great, relaxing weekend.

waiting in line to see Doc.
