Baby Girl Shower!

Today Tanna and Melissa threw me a baby shower!  We did bows and clothes and it was so much fun.    Having a good group of friends to do life with makes everything better.

Getting ready to go!







Eeeee, all the girly goodness!
It was both making me happy and making me sweat 
that everyone was so excited for me and watching my every move.

Jessica had this little chair restored and painted for me!

Sweet Smocking!



Baby's going home outfit!  I picked it out and lovedddd it.
Lauren got it for me.  It will be a special keepsake forever!
I'm sure you'll se it up close in more detail once there's a baby in it!


Melissa doing a good job hanging up my new bows.
I got the frame and ribbon at Hobby Lobby.  
I stapled the ribbon to the back and Justin drilled holes across the bottom for the little hooks I got to hang headbands on.

Every girl needs a good bow collection!
(I also have about 28 headbands I ordered for her on my own... never too many!)

Love these two and the great job they did planning and hosting!
Thank you Melissa and Tanna!

I was excited to give Melissa and Tanna loved their hostess gifts.  
Who doesn't love a new Kendra Scott present??

The boys were sad that baby showers are a girl thing and they weren't invited.  I think seeing their favoriteeeee little girl afterward more than made up for it.  I mean can you even????

Cookies and Visitor!

Oh my word I am so relieved to be done with my two cookie orders for this weekend.  My mess up kind of set me one order behind but they aren't needed until the 29th so I can finish them this upcoming week without any more near all nighters.  I went to bed at 1:30 last night and was up at 5:30 after a very unrestful night.  I spent the rest of today feeling pretty sick.  I think my body is trying to tell me I need to slow down!  I am so so happy with the way both orders came out though so that makes it worth it!

Love these tiny little flowers!



I made these for new families at a school.  I think they turned out great too!



Madden and I headed to the airport to get Lauren and Justin brought Quinn to practice.  We all met back at the house and then headed out to McAlister's for lunch and did some shopping.

Friday Cookies and Date Night

Over spring break Quinn had a timeline project to do.  I thought it was due the first day back but apparently it wasn't due until today.  He did a good job putting the glue on, writing the captions, and drawing the lines.  Feels like just yesterday he was that tiny baby!




After he was off to school Madden and I set out to a bunch of different places to get new dyes and ingredients to re-ice all the cookies I rebaked last night.  So sad.


Take Two!

Tonight we went out for Mexican as a Date Night with our CG and the kids stayed at the Horton's with a babysitter.  Love these faces!  Now I need to finish as much of the work on these cookies as I can and get up super early to finish.  It's going to be a long night and morning but after that I have an exciting weekend coming up!

Cookie Fail


Off to school!


Today I spent the entire school day and afternoon doing cookies for a school.  Well by tonight I could tell things weren't right.  Instead of drying smooth, hard, and flat the icing was just crumbling off in my fingers.  After huffing and puffing about it for a while and staring at them in disbelief I now have to throw these away and rebake 65 cookies tonight and get them all finished up tomorrow.  Boo.

Specialist, Trip, Baseball Game

Today was not very festive in the way of St Patrick's day for us!  Quinn had a field trip to UT Arlington to see The Little Mermaid.  I got him off to school in his class shirt!


I then had to go see a specialist.  Yesterday the doctor's office called and said that the doctor reviewed the ultrasound and the baby was measuring small and possibly had a growth restriction.  Well the specialist today said she looks great and is measuring at or ahead of her dates... He said she weighs right at 6 pounds and has not one concerning thing going on so he was unsure what they saw yesterday.  I was up all night googling IUGR and all the complications that can cause it or result from it.  Lots of unnecessary worry.  I was very happy that Courtney was able to watch Madden since no kids under 10 were allowed in the office at all.  I had to get Quinn to school then drop Madden and his carseat off at her house so she could then go bring Jax to school.  Thankful for good friends!

Jagger and Madden playing Mario Kart

We came home from the doctor/Courtney's and got packed up to go eat a picnic lunch with Quinn's class up at UTA.  Parents weren't allowed to go to the play because of limited seating but we were invited to lunch!


I got there early and drove around this visitor parking lot for a half hour. I was sweating and stressed.  I was driving out to leave because I could NOT find a spot and someone pulled out of a metered spot right in front of me.  I was so relieved.  I was going to have to just email Quinn's teacher and say I couldn't come.


Well worth the hassle!!!




Madden goes to college!
Nothing makes you feel old like trying to run through a college campus with a giant belly 
while carrying a 30 pound child looking for 150 kindergarteners...

We came home and had a little bit of time before it was time to pick up from school!

We got homework done, dinner eaten, and it was time to get ready for Quinn's first baseball game!







Getting warmed up for his very first time at bat!

SO proud of our sweet Quinn!  He got up to bat twice and hit a double both times.  He has never played before and he is on a AA team with no tee!  He was so nervous before the game but I just told him to try his best and we would be proud no matter what.  We were all so happy and relieved to see how great he did and how much he loved it!


Scored two runs at his two times on base!


A rare moment of Madden and Brynlee actually sitting still.
These two = t-r-o-u-b-l-e

Good game, good game, good game...

Into the tunnel




Goooooo Red Sox!
