Some great storage boxes I picked up at Marshall's.
Would love to redo our closet one day with built-in cabinetry... also a sad display of how very flew clothes I have!
Our new flowers... what makes them even more amazing is that my husband dug all of the holes with a long screwdriver because we don't own a trowel! Can you say "ghetto"... It was hillarious and I was proud of him for doing it anyway to make me happy!

Also hoping this is the only kind of tattoo she ever get!!
Taking the traditional "dad holding the camera out as far as he can" picture!
A few cookie crumbs on the lips...yum!
Vance swears he can make this $3,000 playhouse for $400...hmmm.

Emma enjoying the "flowers" in someone's yard! No need to mention they're actually weeds, right?!
There aren't too many of these around our newly developed neighborhood, so you take notice when you see one lying on the ground!
There are, however, a lot of these around our neighborhood!
It looks like someone silverleafed the hydrant!

The past few days I've been thinking about how special the little moments during the day with my two year old are. She is so precious and says the cutest little things. Even though some days it seems like the hours drag on, I am keenly aware that time is flying by. I know that one day soon I will wake up early to take my baby to school. I'm so thankful for the lazy mornings she and I have. I'm so thankful that I get to play with her during the day. I'm so thankful that I'm the one who gets to potty train her. I'm so thankful that I'm the one who gets to hear: sure mommy, be careful mommy or you will hurt yourself, i love you too much mommy!, mommy you're my best friend, and I come wit you mommy.
I'm so thankful for the sweet little blessing God has given me. I just want to enjoy every moment and be thankful for even the little, not so glamorous moments tat everyday brings. These are the times I know I will look back on with such fondness. I want to be able to do so without the regret of not having enjoyed the moments as they happened...

so as a reward (or consolation prize) for my hard luck day, i made this wonderful trifle. not exactly the most difficult culinary concoction, but seriously good. brownies, strawberries, bananas, cool whip and heath bar layered together to create a wonderfuly harmonious bite!

Not exactly a stuffed animal you'd find in the stores...but I think he's special because Em and I made him together (well, sort of)! I had a pair of pajama pants that ripped and wanting to recycle the fabric somehow. The other night I cut up the pants and turned them into this little kitty.
