Oh man oh man.
Those eyes of hers.

On my doorstep.


They're so lovely,
and I know 
that as soon as I open up the pages of either one, 
I won't be able to put it down
until I've scoured through it at least two times.

Thanks to my mother in law
for the awesome amazon gift card.
The rest of it is burning a hole in my 
'virtual pocket', so more goodies 
may be showing up very soon :)

Twenty Seven on the 7th.

It's my birthday.
I want to celebrate by eating these:

   Adorable cupcake pops via Bakerella

too bad that isn't possible, 
since I'm the one who makes cupcake pops around here.
And baking a bunch of cupcake pops on my birthday just for me, doesn't sound near
as fun as it would be to bake them for someone else.

Oh but just one of the awesome things to happen during my birthday month?
Bakerella will be signing her new book in Dallas.
And yes you will find me in line. Oh heck yes.

Happy 27th to me :)
I wanted to go backwards starting last year.
And end up being at 21 again for my 30th.
But I'm good with going forward.
I think we better with age. 
And I wouldn't want to take back anything.
I like right where I'm at.
It may have been a little bit of a rocky road.
But this is just what God had planned for me.
Looking forward to the next year.  
And where he's not only leading me...
but my family as well.
Cheers to that.

A little bit of this. A little of that.

A shot I got of my sister and Kenzie 
at my sister's rehearsal dinner.

Love McKenzie's little pink converse.
Shoes are 10 times cuter when they're tiny.

My sister in law's homecoming is today
and I did the garter and mum again this year.
Next year will be the last one for her, and it's going to be a little sad.

they're the mustangs, so every year I try to do something a little different 
using some sort of 'horse type' item on the mum and garter.

Next year Caitie will have a four flower mum....
I think it's possible that she'll tip over from the weight of the thing.
She's a tiny girl.

And for her special boy
who plays soccer and is a senior this year....

We got season passes for the Fair.
Cause we love it oh so very much.
And Hubby actually had to check in with some clients
and make sure things were going smoothly for them, there.
So we were able to go along with him that day as well.

They have different singers and bands who come and perform at the Fair.
Last weekend was Brooke White (former american idol contestant). 
 I liked her on the show, and I like her even more after seeing her perform.
{This Saturday is the Eli Young Band...
super excited for a date night with my hubby!}

Big Tex.
& crazy Kenzie faces.

We took kenzie on the Ferris Wheel.
She loved it.
And asked to go again when we got off.

{from our Camping at the lake trip awhile back}

We've been thinking about our family vision recently.
What we want for our family.
What our goals are.
We aren't sure where God is leading us.
But, we're praying and listening and talking about it.
There are two things I'm positive of and one of those 
is that some of it will involve being outside of our comfort zone.
It makes me a little nervous, and I get those little flutters in my stomach
just thinking about what God has in store for us.

In the past I've felt 'not good enough'
or 'not christian enough'
so I feel I've ignored some of the things 
I was supposed to be doing.
But, I'm wrestling with those feelings
and working on them.
So that those feelings don't interfere with
what God truly wants for us.
