Project 366: Day 88 [May 14th]

Morning everyone!

Hope you had a great Monday!

Lets first start off with the photo challenge! Today's challenge was....

GRASS.


This is one of my favorite spots. Not my favorite, but one of my favorites ;) It's gorgeous here!

And now... for our day! :)

It was a relaxing day today for us! I had 5 photo sessions that I needed to edit and get burned on to CDs, so I just lounged around today in my yoga pants and a shirt that says 'Fo Sho!' haha! LOVE it.


It was a super comfy kinda day!

Oh-- and I thought I'd share that we got a new shower curtain for our bathroom and I am SO happy that we have a theme for that room finally!!!


I know it's totally cliche. A beach themed bathroom, haha! But I LOVE it! I can't wait to get started decorating! :)

And Tayler looked super cute today (as always!) in her outfit that her Gigi bought her!


She is the prettiest little thing! :)

And we had taco salads for dinner! They were yummy! Nacho chips, seasoned hamburger, lettuce, cheese, sour cream, salsa, and refried beans. YUMMMM!


They were super tasty!

After that, we went to Dairy Queen and got ice cream. Ethan had a rough day today and he seemed to think that ice cream makes everything better. Although I'm lactose intolerant, I had to agree. I got the new Confetti Cake blizzard and it is AM-AAAA-ZING! :) 


If you haven't tried it yet, I recommend it! YUM.

We all got our peejays on and TJ and Lakin came over and we sat around talking and watching 'America's Got Talent!' Anyone else excited this is back on?? WE ARE! :)


Hope you all had a great Monday!

Cheers to Project 366!

Project 366: Day 87 [May 13th]


I'll start off this blog first by saying 

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY

to all of you mommas out there!! :) Hope it was an amazing day!

And now for our photo challenge today.

Here's my momma and me:


This wasn't taken today, obviously, haha! It's an oldie, but goodie! I'd be the one that FORGOT her camera all day today. Go Mommy! ;)

Anyways.

We woke up this morning anxious to see Tayler, got ready, and went to meet my mom, dad, and brother (along with Tayler) at Denny's. Have you ever ate at Denny's? OH MY WORD. Amazing! :) I wasn't a huge fan of my meal (the spices they used on the sausage left something to be desired...) It was the Santa Fe Skillet. I should have just stuck with my usual, haha! :) And yes, I forgot to get pictures here! We were kind of in a hurry going in because of rain, through the meal because Tayler was kinda cranky, and leaving because it was STILL raining, haha! Mom and Dad came back to the house for a few, but Tayler was sleepy, so I curled up on the couch with her and YES, we both fell asleep, haha!

Ethan eventually woke us up so we could go visit his Momma. I took a picture of Tayler playing in her play room before we left because I thought she looked SO cute!


I love that little outfit :)

We got all packed up and went to Grandma Carol's house to visit. She was hangin' out and playing with some pots and pans for awhile.. just having a blast :) I took a picture of her standing up with that dress on because I couldn't resist!


She's just beautiful :)

Once we got home, I forgot that I wanted to get a picture of us on the couch like we did last year on Mother's Day. Here's Mother's Day 2011:


So we hurried up and TRIED to take a few of us in the playroom... after we were already changed out of our cute outfits, haha! Tayler was cooperating however, so just enjoy what we could get of her ;) At least in the one picture you can see how long she is compared to how long she was a year ago!



She's getting so big! :) I'm so thankful that she is the reason I am a Mommy today! I couldn't have asked for a sweeter baby!

We spent the rest of the night relaxing! Ethan bought us some dinner and we cuddled up and watched 'Once Upon a Time.' Does anyone else watch this? So sad it was the Season Finale!! What is to come with that purple magic dust?? I'm anxious to find out already!


And we had to laugh. We were laying on both sides of the couches watching TV.. and Tayler was relaxing on her slide LOL


Cheers to Project 366!

Project 366: Day 86 [May 12th]

Good morning everyone! :) Hope you're having a good Saturday!

I thought I'd first start with the May Photo Challenge.. like always!

The task today was: Something Fun!

I know... I'm going to sound extremely weird, but I LOVE making up the grocery list, making a list of meals for the week, and posting it on the chalkboard. That is SUPER fun to me! (Does that age me?? haha!)


This week, our meals are:

Monday-- Tacos and more Salsa (I talked about it yesterday, haha!)
Tuesday-- Two Timin' Pasta Bake, Salads, Garlic Bread
Wednesday-- Garlic Chicken Pasta
Thursday-- Broccoli and Cheese Soup/French Bread (Yea, it's summer.. oh well! ;))
Friday-- Pepperoni Rolls (new thing I found on Pinterest!!)

What are you making this week?? 

And now for our day!

First of all, how sweet is my baby cuddling with me?



Gah, she is the best thing in my world! Sooo grateful for her! She has changed me for the better and I love her more than you could possibly imagine!

Once we got up and moving, we headed out on a road trip! We were taking some pictures for some people kind of far away, so we packed up the stuff and headed out on the road...

with our Scentsy Travel Tin of course! Gotta love Black Raspberry Vanilla :)


And our Cheez-Its (okay, it's the off brand.. but they're cheaper and they taste just the same LOL!)


Yum! Made for the perfect road trip.

When we got there, we found out that Tayler was snoozing!! LOL She must have really enjoyed that trip ;)


She's too precious! :)

We had a great time visiting friends.. and then it was back home to relax for a bit before some more photo sessions :) Here's a shot of E and me on our way back home:


He seriously is my best friend. I absolutely love that we do everything together. I am so thankful that God gave me such a good partner in life :)

Once we got home, it was lunch time. We were giggling about Tayler. All you could see was her little pony tail while we were eating! She is TOO adorable for words!


I love her :)

After that, we had a few photo sessions, then we took Tayler to Papaw and Gigi's house so she could spend the night with them! They love having her... we miss her while she's gone, but we love having our alone time too! :)

After we dropped her off, we went to Subway! I got my favorite: steak on italian herbs and cheese bread toasted with lettuce, tomato, onion, chipotle sauce, and black pepper. OH... and Jalapeno chips on the side.


I swear you haven't lived until you have had these. YUM! :)

Once we got home, we got ready for our date night! We were having some friends over for our sister-in-laws 21st birthday! :) Here I am after getting ready:


I changed my shirt though. For some reason that one didn't 'feel right' today, haha! :) 

Here's E and I waiting for everyone to get there:


Mmm, he's so sexy ;)

And here's Arena and I dancing, haha!


We had a fun night, but we sure missed our munchkin!

Hope you all had a great day!

Cheers Project 366!

Project 366: Day 85 [May 11th]


Friday. Friday. Friday.

You know I got mad love for ya ;)

Lets first start off with the May Photo Challenge!

The task today was: KITCHEN

so I thought I'd share my kitchen!


I promise. It is like my FAVORITE part of our house! :)

And now.. for our day!

I got my new scentsy! I bought the Scentsy of the Month for May and it was CHERRY VANILLA. If you haven't smelled this yet-- DO IT. It's amazing! Check out... www.alyssabay.scentsy.us if you are curious :)


Mmm :)

And Tayler and I shared a bowl of cereal at 1PM. I can't help it. It sounded good... and apparently she thought so too ;)


She's learned to say 'more' too... although, it comes out sounding like 'mope!' hahahaha! Too freaking cute :) I took a little video of it, but I still don't know how to upload it with an I-Phone, hahahahha! :) 

Here she is relaxin'


She's too cute! :) I love watching her watch cartoons :)

After that, we went grocery shopping. I felt like we were out of absolutely everything, let me tell you! So, I planned out the meals and we were off! I bought some stuff to make our friends salsa. She gave me the ingredients and I have been waiting for weeks to make it, but I finally put the stuff on the list and got all the ingredients! I sent this to Bre (her daughter) on instagram so she could see I was FINALLY eating it!


I know. 

Real attractive ;)


It was SUPER good! I won't reveal her secret recipe, but just know it was amazing and I was sooooo happy to be able to make it for E and me!! :)

Tayler was ready for bed after the grocery. We let her walk around instead of being in the cart and gosh-- she was exhausted, haha! Here we are cuddling :)


We had a great day! Hope you all had a great day!

Cheers to Project 366!

Project 366: Day 84 [May 10th]

I'm behind!

It has been SO busy around here the past few days, I have completely neglected my Project 366. But I am here now to get caught up! 

Alright.. now, for the May Photo Challenge for Day 10--

'Your Favorite Word!'


It's actually four words.

KISS ME YOU FOOL! ;)

Love my husband and love that I get to kiss him every day!

Alright, now that all of that mushy stuff is out of the way, on to our day today!

I spent most of the day editing. With the busy couple of days I had ahead of me, I knew I needed to get started! Here was my work station:


Love every second of this and I am so thankful for it :)

And it was hilarious.

I had a lot of editing to catch up on.. and I had one baby that wanted to be held and rocked to sleep and another baby that wanted to be held! LOL Here's Tayler getting a bottle and Kenton trying to jump up on me, haha! Hysterical! :)


I wouldn't trade a single second of it though!

I think the pictures I was editing today turned out really well! It was of an engagement session.. my first! We had SO much fun! :) 

Today was throw-back Thursday on Instagram. Anyone else participate in that? I love it because I absolutely love reminiscing. Today I posted a picture of one of our maternity pictures. It was my absolute FAVORITE and we have this one in our living room :) These were taken by Jessica Barber Photography.


Isn't that gorgeous? LOVE them!! :)

We had a visitor today too!! Gigi came to see Tayler! They shared some fries and some giggles :) I love watching my parents be grandparents!


They had so much fun together :)

And I had to share this hilarious text message from Ethan I got today. I kept saying, 'He knows I am the boss!!!' LOL!!


He seriously cracks me up :) 

I made dinner tonight... and it was YUMMY! We had French Onion soup and I made some homemade croutons (Thanks Giada At Home for giving me that idea!)


Mmmm. So good! :) 

Hope you all had a GREAT day today! 

Cheers to Project 366!
