Almost halfway through the year. June is coming to a close. Lots of family time spent together.
Recap of some family festivities in June.
We traveled to Weatherford, OK to see my in-laws for a few days and spent Father’s Day there. The last picture is of my husband and father in law. Love. I can’t help but think in about 5 years, this will be Rhett and Tommy.
We have been doing some yard renovations and moving rock and dirt around; Rhett was in charge of driving the mower with the trailer. He had so much fun. He picked wildflowers for me & helped me arrange them for my entryway. Fun in the sprinkler and feeding chickens. A very HOT, HOT Sunday outside.
Last, but certainly not least.. I have been seeing a personal trainer since February to help motivate me and get me back in shape and back to my “pre-baby body”. [Yes, I am fully aware my child is three already]
I can’t say this enough. With all of the negativity in the world today, I have to step back and focus on the good in my life and be thankful for the life I live. July will be all about focusing on the good in MY life. For me. For my family.

Officially on Christmas Break from work; off work until 2017. I have so many projects, ideas and plans for Tommy and I over the next two weeks.
This past weekend we had our 2nd Annual Christmas Party & Scavenger Hunt with friends and it sure was memorable. [This picture says it all.. Thanks Chan for being the brave one!]
I have spent the last several weeks making & selling shirts for friends & family for Christmas presents and whatnot. Talk about SUPER BUSY! But so fun and worth it! These will be available for purchase from my Etsy shop shortly.
Here’s just a FEW of what I have done. 🙂
Rhett visited the North Pole of Texas recently and enjoyed every minute of it! He was able to ride the train around the property and see all of the Christmas lights, have a picture made with Mrs. Claus and see Santa along the way. He has not stopped talking about it since he got home.
I hope over the next couple of weeks, Tommy and I are able to work on our guest bathroom. It has been “out of order” for about 6 months. We had plans back in the summer to work on it and just never got around to it. It is so fun to plan and purchase items to renovate. And the satisfaction after completion is indescribable. Hopefully that feeling comes soon. Until then, I’ll keep buying and working [hopefully]. I’ll keep you updated on any progress & purchases with that project.
From my family to yours, I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas.
Until next time,

Just look at all that cuteness!
I have been waiting a couple of weeks for these photos, and as always, Amie Wood delivers pure perfection. [This could possibly be solely because I do have the cutest little boy ever, but I obviously have to give her some credit. 😉 jk]
My sweet baby. BABY?? Where did the time go? I’m not THAT mom that is like “OMG, my baby is a week old, how can this be?!”, Yeah, that’s not me.. Mine is almost THREE! Does it seem like he should be 8 by now? Some days, yes. Oh, can I tell you; some days it feels like it has been an eternity, and then other days I look back at pictures and realize, it really hasn’t been that long. He’s still my sweet, little Rhett.
As I was showing him these pictures, of course he was saying “That’s Rhett… Mommy… Daddy… Rhett kissing Mommy…” You get the point. He’s as sweet as pie on days and then BAM! he turns on a dime into this little demon that I can’t help but love! Haha! Moms, you know! [I will post about our Friday Night Double Date + Rhett adventure that happened recently; the demon came out!]
As the days get shorter, weather gets colder, leaves start to change and the holidays approach, I’ll cherish these little moments and realize, each year, not only does Rhett get older, Tommy & I do too! YIKES!

The time has come… It’s finally here… I got the initial email with some wedding pictures. The moment my computer spoke to me and said “You’ve Got Mail” – I smiled from cheek to cheek! I knew it was here! Here’s a sneak peek of what I have received. [I don’t want to flood you with repetitive wedding pictures] Amie Wood did a fan-tab-u-lous job!
