Pinterest Love

So I often see on Pinterest that some people get like 500 pins to one picture, and I wonder how they do it!!  Maybe I'm slightly jealous....just maybe.  Well, all of a sudden a pin I attached to one of my boards FOREVER ago (like my very first pin) has all the sudden become VERY popular!!  Eeek!!  I'm getting 10-15 emails a day showing how many MORE people are pinning it!  Eeek (again)!!!  I can't believe it...it's pretty cool that other people think what you like is "awesome" as well!!  And without further ado, here are the two pics that have been so popular....





The pictures are from a wedding that one of my GREAT blogger friends was in (actually it was her sisters wedding)!!  They all made such a beautiful wedding party!  Thanks Ashley for sharing such meaningful, beautiful pictures!!

Pretty exciting!!  :)) 

Owenisms...

A few of the precious words Owen "can" say...

Nini (Finley)
issy (Sissy)
Aadn (Aidan)

I love that he can't say anything correctly...it just melts my heart when he says it wrong!!  He is learning so many new words and it's fun to watch him try so hard!  He is so precious and I love the time I get to spend with him!!

One of Those Afternoons...

It has been one of those afternoons where I just want to quit....

you know the kind...

when your children have to whine about E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G!!  First they are STARVING, but they HATE everything that's offered.  Then they MUST irritate each other, followed by SCREAMS, tears and loud squeals.  Then they CHOOSE to speak disrespectfully to me.

It's beyond frustrating that I take the time to plan meals....work hard searching, gathering and preparing said meals only to hear, "I DON'T LIKE THAT!!  YOU NEVER MAKE ANYTHING I LIKE!!!  YOU HATE ME!!"  Or the equally frustrating..."I'm not hungry."  I am making something new tonight...and I KNOW I will hear plenty of opinions about it!! 

I have dust in EVERY corner in my house, dirty toilets, sticky floors, piles of paperwork, messy closets, about 1600 legos all over one child's bedroom, plastic food strewn over B's room, about 1,000 baseball cards in another room.

I need to put together about 45 Valentine's Day cards....

I need to finish up a basket for a silent auction...

at this point I am just whining, but I just feel like whining!!  Ha! 

Here's for a better day tomorrow!! :)

Happy 10th Aidan!

I cannot believe that you have been on this earth for 10 years!!  Tonight we celebrated right at 5:54 that 10 years ago I was giving birth to my first baby....and Aidan, you have blessed me and your daddy (and so many other people in your life).  I am so grateful that God chose me to be your momma.  I cannot wait to see what the future has in store for you.  God has blessed you and will continue to bless you sweetheart. 

You amaze me every day,
momma :)
