365 Days.

One year (12 months, 52 weeks, 365 days) ago my baby angel, Penny Lane graced the world with her beautiful little face. At three weeks early, she was the tiniest thing I had ever seen! Tiny, perfect and just lovely.




Today, she is ONE YEAR OLD! She is the absolute light of my life. Her smile is infectious and her laughter sparkles like the stars in the sky. She is just the best.


We love you Penny Lane! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!


Its enough to make me want another... Almost :)

You Guys...

I just had a gigantic breakdown. Big sobs and snotty wails... 

Why, you ask? 

I flipped to my calendar and it hit me like a ton of bricks. 

This little angel will be ONE on Friday.


Someone hold me.

Double the house. Double the fun!

So, I mentioned before that we are about to embark on a HUGE project at our casa. We have been updating/remodeling in stages and we are thisclose to starting the final phase. I.Can.Not.Wait. Like it needs to start tomorrow :) Here are the official plans. Our architect is freaking rad and he did the greatest job! Its seriously fantastic. We are adding on about 1000sq feet. So we will able to stay here for a looong time; which is just what I wanted! Maybe you remember that I had a breakdown when we put out house on the market last year... It only lasted one day :)

Will you all come over for a house re-warming party when we're done?

Note: the shaded area is the addition/remodel.


We have worked really hard to get everything in order to make this project happen, so I would appreciate your support!

OH!! Don't forget to enter my giveaway, HERE!

1 and 2 and Plié


My angel took her first ballet class late last year. I look at these pictures and I just can't help but tear up; she is not only getting so big (she's TWO!) but she is just so gorgeous. How did that happen?




I stayed through the class. I couldn't leave. It was just to precious.













She LOVED the hoola hoop. It was her best friend.




Until she didn't love it anymore.


But then she decided she over-reacted a bit. She really did love her hoola hoop.






I am so proud of my little girl. Even though she disrupted the class the entire time the class didn't go quite as smoothly as I would have hoped, I still think she was perfect. She is perfect. 

All picture taken by my lovely momma. I love her. So does Lucy.

Somethings Never Change...

I'm trying to write a post about the time I met Cee-Lo Greene. There is a specific picture I am looking for that was taken the night at one of his shows with the Roots. But that was like 8 years and 4 computers ago... So, its proving to be quite difficult.

However, I have come across some of the most amazing pictures of my outfits from days past. Oh my word. I have always been a fashionista... No doubt. I think I will have to do a post all about my fashion sense through the years. But for now, just one. I about hit the floor.

I'm so proud.

Lucy pushed Penny Lane down. Penny didn't cry. She got right up and punched Lucy in the face.

Lucy spit a piece of banana on the floor. I told her to pick it up and put it in the trash. She did. She picked it up with her mouth and spit it in the trash.

Lucy will not keep clothes on her Princess Jasmine Barbie. Refuses. 

Penny refuses to eat off a plate. If you give her food on a plate, she throws it on the floor.

Lucy won't drink anything but chocolate milk.

Penny ate close to 10 iced sugar cookies last night.

Lucy calls Nanny Kate, "Ninny Butt" and "Tonto."

Penny Lane was blowing raspberries and Lucy exclaimed, "Penny Lane stop farting!"

Lucy only wants to talk in her "dinosaur" voice. Its scary. Penny does it too. 

I'm so proud...

New Year. New Look.

Happy New Year to you all! I hope that twenty-eleven is just magical for you all! We laid super low on NYE; celbrated the new year on east coast time and were in bed and asleep before the clock struck midnight here in Oklahoma :) New Years Day was spent with some of our favorite people (Megan & Brent, Johanna & Josh, Meredith & Shane, Mom & Dad, and Jane.) We watched a lot of football, ate a lot of chili, and some of us had a lot of beer. I will not name names...

Alabama won! Roll Tide!
OU won! Boomer Sooner!
TCU WON!! RAH RAH TCU!

And... In case you didn't notice... I gave myself a makeover, well my blog.
