Dear baby,

Tomorrow is the day that your daddy and I will be buying all of the presents for your birthday, as well as all of the decorations. I've been looking forward to this day for weeks and I'm so looking forward to it.

As I sit here, and think of the celebration that is rapidly approaching, tears are streaming down my face.
I can't believe my baby is almost a year old. I honestly don't know where this year has gone. Everyone said it would fly by, but my goodness, I didn't think it would disappear that quickly.

I feel like I missed so many things. So many milestones. I hate that I can't stay home with you everyday.
Your daddy and I want the best things for you, and that means that he and I both have to work. I'm so sorry. I know you're in good hands, but I wish you were in mine. <3

I pray that you know I'm doing my best. I've never done this before, and as you are learning, I am too.
I love you so much baby girl. You are my world, and I hope this year has been amazing for you. As much as it has been for us. I love you . Always. And forever.
While we try to teach our children all about life, our children teach us what life is all about.

Bad blogger

Yep, that's me. I'm a bad blogger.

I have good weeks where I'll have 3 or 4 posts, and then I'll go a week or two with no posts at all.

I'm super busy planning A's birthday party (Two weeks from today btw! AHHH) along with work, cooking, cleaning, playing with a rambunctious toddler, blogging kind of gets pushed aside. ::Sad face::
So here is a quick update;

My best friend and I are going to the Southern Women's Show today!! I went 3 years ago when we lived in Tennessee and LOVED it. (The S W S, not Tennessee, hence why we live in Florida now) I won the tickets from my favorite local radio station. Along with a Longaberger wallet, a purse from Macy's, and some perfume! I LOVE the way the perfume smells, so I will be running out of it quickly!!

Baby A can seriously walk now. She's trotting all over the house, chasing after our cat (which is hilarious) she kind of wobbles sometimes, it's super cute. She looks a lot like Dr. Frankenstein's monster though, which makes for some serious entertainment. :)
She started saying "Hi" It is SO cute. She has the sweetest little baby voice. I love it. I seriously can't believe how she is growing up so fast. She's on regular milk now, and eating real food, it blows my mind. Her birthday is 15 days from today. We're having her party the day before, and taking her to Disney on her actual birthday :) I hope she enjoys it!

The Southern Woman's Show has come and gone. We had a pretty good time. It was crowded and hot, but it was fun. We got a lot of swag, and ate more dip than any person ever should. I also got my wedding band cleaned, and it is soooo sparkly and shiny now. It's beautiful :)

Hope you all have a great weekend. And since I missed Wordless Wednesday....

Old school

So, I may be late, but I've jumped on the Pinterest bandwagon. I honestly thought, meh it can't be as exciting as everyone says it is.

Ummm, ok. I was wrong. Like, really wrong. I've spent the last week of my life pinning amazing DIY's, foods I want to make, birthday party ideas....omigosh. I can't even describe the awesomeness that is pinterest. If you haven't already, check it out. Or don't, it will take over your life.

I've decided I'm going to learn how to cook via pinterest. (Not to mention the amaaaaaazing desserts I've seen....2 ingredient homemade butterfingers?! REALLY!?) Homemade Febreze, teeth whitener, dryer sheets, holiday decorations...the list goes on and on and on.

This weekend was pretty epic. Saturday we spent the afternoon with my best friend in the world, and her boo and 2 handsome babes. They're 4 and 5 and it seems like just yesterday they were teeny, tiny babies. Time flies. We went to a park, and had planned to go to a pumpkin patch but it was really windy, and started raining. So those plans flew out the window. But it's ok, we got to spend time together, and it was amazing, and long over due. We've already made plans to get together again soon. Yay!
After we left them, we went to my grandparents and had the most delicious lunch (ribs & apple pie) I may have had seconds. We hung out with them for a couple of hours then headed to another friend's house to hang with him and his 2 year old son. The Mrs was working so we'll have to catch her next time ;)
After leaving home at 9 am, we finally got home around 7ish and we relaxed for the rest of the night. I guess I forgot to mention all of our friends/family live 1+ hours away from us. All in all, it was a good day. The baby got spend some much needed time with the fam, (and in a swing, which she loooooves) and she was happy all day even with only having two 15 minute naps.
Today was full of laundry. We skipped church. (sorry God) It was rainy and disgusting out
I did about 6 loads of laundry, cleaned the entire house and played with the little one. It was a busy, but good day. Back to the ol' grind tomorrow. But I'm not complaining. House is back!!!! Woooo hooooo.

Hope you all had a great weekend, and hope your upcoming week it fabulous as well.
Oy, I'm a hot mess.
