Project 366: Day 78 [May 4th]

The May Photo Challenge today was:

We had fun at the grocery store with Gigi! :) We were out of completely EVERYTHING at home it seemed like, haha! So, this was definitely a MUST today! :) And we got through the entire store, loaded all of the groceries in to the car, and hopped in the our seats when it started pouring! God's good to us like that, haha! :)
Alright... and now for our day! :)
I cleaned most of the morning. You know.. .the Friday routine! :) Once I got done, the babies were both kind of cranky, so I figured I would lay them down for a nap and relax. I honestly had TV shows saved on my DVR from Monday on. So, I spent some time catching up on 'Secret Life of the American Teenager,' 'Newlywed Game,' '16 and Pregnant,' and 'Betty White's Off Their Rockers.' Good shows! Thank God for DVR!

And I got dressed. You know, I hate the heat. You know, I hate the summer. But boy, do I love being able to wear little summer dresses! :) I eve…

Project 366: Day 77 [May 3rd]

On Instagram, it was #throwbackthursday
and since EVERY Throwback Thursday I post something about my daughter from last year, I thought I'd share this picture of her. This is about this exact date last year... give or take a few days of course!

She was right around 6 weeks. CRAZY.  Already being a smiley baby :) LOVE her. And honestly-- I miss her being that little! :(
And now for the May Photo Challenge.
The task today was 'Something You Wore.'

It was almost 90 degrees today.
I wore a nice little Summer dress! :) What did you wear today??
And guess what?
I had A LOT of visitors today, but unfortunately, I only remembered to get a picture with one, haha! My mom and dad came over for lunch (at separate times.. so I got to spend some alone time with each of them :) It was really nice!) And my long lost friend Helen came to visit. We used to be best friends back in the day. We worked together, hung out on our days off... she was Helen the Felen, haha! Such good times! I have…

How crazy is that??? 
I have blogged about my life since December 2009.
I have marked the day I met my husband.
The day I moved in with my husband.
The day we found out we were expecting a baby.
The day we found out she was a girl.
My entire pregnancy.
The day we got married.
The day our baby was born.
Her first year.
This is exactly what the beauty of blogging is! It captures our LIVES. I am so thankful for being able to write this post right now! :) And in honor of that.... LETS CELEBRATE!!!

And now for the May Photo Challenge! Day #2's task was:

We took the kiddos outside today (more about that later) and I thought the sky and trees were just gorgeous next to one another :)
And now... for our day!
It was like 10:00AM and yes, my daughter was all ready ready for  a nap, haha! She is hilarious sometimes!

I'll take her snuggling with me though! She NEVER wants to anymore! If she's going to sleep.. it hassss to be in her crib. Go figure, haha! 
After a nap, she decided to get up and play with Kenton, so I got started making the grocery list and clipping coupons. I LOVE doing this on Wednesdays because I get a basic list going and then I just add to it as I see things that are out! Makes it so much easier on me! :)

We started off the May Photo Challenge today!

The task today was:

I got this ring 6 years ago when I started struggling with anxiety. I wore it everywhere I went. It symbolized the fact that Jesus was EVERYWHERE with me. And I have never taken it off my thumb! :) It is a constant reminder that HE is my peace!
And I thought Tayler looked SUPER cute today :) Our friend Linda bought this outfit for Tayler for her 1st birthday from Cracker Barrel and it was finally warm enough for her to wear it! It is just absolutely adorable!!

(Can y'all tell I&…

Today's task was: 'Something that Makes You Sad'

Noo. My daughter doesn't make me sad... it's the fact that she's SO big that does :( Today marked Tayler being 13 months old. Is that insane or what??? I know I talk about it all the time... how fast time is going.. but honestly guys... it is! Days sometimes seem like they drag but the 13 months she has been alive are just flying! She was getting ready to take a nap here :) 
I had a lot to do today which kind of sucked considering it was SO gorgeous out! I had to do laundry from the weekend, dishes, check Ethan's homework he had t…
