Being a young mom means we met a little early, but I get to love them longer.

Here are some links to helpful posts I have done in the past :)

Another reason I love fall! (Plus some random pictures).

Consignment sales! I hit the half off day at one today, and I got a ton of stuff for $30!

4 shirts for Brentley.

3 more shirts, some socks, and a pair of pants for Brentley.

2 shirts for Grace.

2 dresses for Grace.

An alphabet game for the kids, a Peter Pan pop-up book for my brother for Christmas, and some Children's Place gloves for Grace. I also got a Big Bird sippy cup for Brentley, but he used it already, so it's not in the pictures.

I started making Grace's tutu today, and that is probably the most time consuming craft I have ever done! 
It's a little over 1/4 of the way done at this point. The picture doesn't show the colors very well, but they are light pink, dark pink, and gold. I chose those to matches these wings that I got today...

We also got Brentley's costume today...
Sock Monkey!!

And here are some random pics...
This is the cake I made for my sister's birthday party. I forgot to post it here after her party last week. Her party was rainbow themed.

Probably the prettiest sunrise I have ever seen. I took this at a red light on my way to school on morning. 

Weight loss update... according to the scale, I still haven't lost anymore, but I am at the point now where I am much more confident with my body, and that is a huge step for me!
(Yes, I always take my pics in our bathroom mirror, lol.)


  1. Okay, a few things.

    1. Great deals, like I said. :) I know what you are talking about now. I LOVE sweater dresses! With tights. TOO CUTE! I can't believe she is in the same size as Sam now. She can wear anywhere from 3T to 6T, depending on the brand. Also Love Brentley's "Born to Break <3s"

    2. I really think that cake you made her was cute. Her whole party was cute. You are really good with the cakes. Unique theme. I seriously cannot wait to see pics of him in the SOck Monkey costume!!! I saw that and I was like, "I HAVE to tell Christina!!"

    Cute sky. Did you post that on FB? It looks familiar.

    Love the pics. Lookin good, girl! What have you been doing? Your clothes are cute! Love that mirror being on the shower too! I tried to take pics in the mirror, but since we didn't have one of those, the sink was kinda in the way. Guess I will just start coming over when I need pics of myself. lol I will be like those chicks that puckers their lips in the mirror, puts their hip to the side, and then puts their hand in their hair. Ba Ha. You know exactly what I am talking about!!!

  2. I love them too! I need to get her some more tights. She has outgrown most of hers. She can still fit in some 2T, but she is mostly in 3T now. She can also wear some 4T if it's on the small side.

    My sister is obsessed with colors. My mom is really artsy, and so is her dad, so I think she will be a painter or something when she gets older.

    I may have posted it. I took that pic awhile back. These were all on my iPod, and I was going through them for the consignment sale pics, so I figured I post some of the others too lol.

    Thanks :) Mostly just trying to eat better... not a lot of junk food, fast food, or sodas. I mostly drink water, and occasionally milk. And whenever I started school, I usually drop a few pounds just from having to walk all over campus all the time.

    And yes, I do know what you're talking about. Although, I think the worst one I've seen on facebook was a girl with no pants on. She was naked from the waist down, turned backwards, and sticking her butt out for the camera. That was her profile picture! You know her. She went to our school...

  3. Hm. I may have some of Sam's old tights that she hasn't ruin. I will look and let you know if you want them. I am not sure though..

    That is a great interest to have! I used to LOVE art, but after I turned 14, my art stopped progressing and I felt like everyone else was better, so I just kinda stopped drawing and painting and learning the techniques.

    Ha Ha. Maybe. Or maybe someone else saw the same part of the sky. lol

    That is great! Idk about you, but when I cut all that stuff out, I had more energy! lol You must do a lot of walking!

    Oh my gosh! That is crazy! She should have her profile deleted and IP blocked! Oh my gosh, I just read that...You have to text and tell me who!!! Do chicks ever request Chris and then ask him if he wants to "hook up over chat" or something crazy like that? Girls do that to JEssie all the time. It looks like a spam profile or something, but idk how that works.

  4. I got her some today at Wal-Mart. They were on sale for $2 a piece, so I got red ones, dark pink ones, and light pink ones :)

    I don't think so, but Chris doesn't use his facebook much. He has had a few of his old friends of ex girlfriends hitting on him on there every once in awhile, but he always tells me, and then deletes them.

  5. That is a good deal. Did you get the thick ones or the thin ones?

    That is good! Jessie always tells me about the girls, but it is just odd.

  6. The thick ones. I don't like the thins ones. They don't keep her warm, and they rip too easily.

    Yeah, I figured he did. Maybe he picked up one of those spam viruses on facebook. I had one. Someone sent me a birthday card on my birthday... or at least they thought I did, so I opened it. Next thing I know, I'm supposedly sending people birthday cards on their birthdays, but I wasn't, so I had to change my password.
