instafriday on saturday~

life rearranged

I am linking up with jeannette for the first time on InstaFriday! Yes, it's Saturday,
but you know.....

I am still learning more and more with my
i phone, but I LOVE it!

So, here is what's been going on on my phone.

 Mother's Day. I got to spend a day shopping in the city with Beka

and while your shopping, you need to stop and have frozen
yogurt at PeachWave. So yummy!

Road construction all week on the road that takes
me from home to work! Waiting for a pilot car, uuuhhhgg!
The weather was fabulous the first part of the week
we decided to have supper on the patio. Eventhough
it was just Subway, it was very nice to be outside!

This was the last week of school for Beka
Beka's grade on one of her last tests in Intro to Chem!
We are so proud of her, she has done really well
her Freshman year!

I ordered some new fabric from
new pillow ideas

Have a GREAT weekend!

mother's day~

I have been a mom for
14 years. Believe me, it's been quite a journey,if
you are a mom yourself you know.

That first moment that they place that little
life in your arms and you look down
at that tiny little person, it all begins.
 Life as a Mom.

I remember the day I became a Mom
like it was yesterday; Sunday August 24, 1997.

I woke up at 3:00a.m. and knew that something
was going on! I quickly woke Rick and said
I think it's time. Right away, like first timers, we
call the hospital in a frantic! They calmly said, "how many minutes
are they?" Well, of course,
it wasn't time and were told to relax and keep them
posted.  I went and layed on the couch and Rick
goes back to bed....WHAT? I thought...we are having a baby
and you are going back to bed!

I saw the sunrise that day, it was beautiful.
When things were progressing, my sweet husband
says to me, "it's a beautiful day to have a baby".

We made it to the hospital, almost too late! It's a good thing
we were only 4 minutes from the hospital, because that's
what the contractions were apart!

At 2:53p.m. we were blessed with our sweet baby girl
all 7lbs 2 oz and 19 1/2"long. She was perfect!

Motherhood has been quite a journey, I am not
kidding when I say that it hasn't
been all peaches and cream. It is certainly
a challenge, but we have this
wonderful sweet girl.

She is growing up so fast and has
become a wonderful young woman.  We are so proud
of her and I am proud to be her Mom.

I hope that you had a wonderful
Mother's Day!

what's been happening~

So, I haven't been around alot lately
it's been busy around here.

I am finally with the times....I have
retired my old cell phone; which was an
awesome flip phone, for an iphone 4s!

Let me tell you, I am in love....
I love this phone so much, where has
it been all my life?? :)

Miss Bailey dog turned 1 on the 5th!

I can't believe how much she
has grown. She is still
such a pup!

 we had pupcakes and ice cream; okay
well "WE" didn't she did....:)
Bailey love the pupcakes!! 

Our hot water heater decided
to quit on us last
Saturday! Yes, why do most
appliances, air conditioners, and furnaces
decide to die on the weekend?
We got it replaced and were
back in business in few days!

I decided on a whim
to repaint the mudroom!

I know...crazy haven't
even gotten to see pictures of it
all finished yet.  Well, it's not completely finished
but I had to change the color. :)

it's called

I really like it and I hope to work on my
gallery wall and then I can share it! :)

So that's what's been going on with me...
how about you? :)

Take care!

I am back with a What I Wore Wednesday!

I am linking up Lindsey at the Pleated Poppy.

Well, I only have one outfit this week. 
Beka and I had a wedding to go to on Saturday.

Top: old navy
scarf: target
skirt: oldnavy
shoes: oldnavy

Dress: Target
glitter flips: Target

I really am trying to step out of my comfort zone. 

You see, I work in an office for
a drywall construction company.
So,...I don't own a whole lot of skirts and
dresses, nor do I wear alot of them either;
jeans and tees are my go to outfits! 

I always love the style of my friend Jodi (I just love her name!)
she is always a great inspiration for me; so I hope she is proud! :)

I hope to continue to aquire more skirts and dresses
to my wardrobe.  I am not sure if I will
wear them to work...I am sure the guys
at work will think what
got into me and why am I so dressed up! ;)

So, that's my big skirt adventure! How did I do?

Happy Wednesday! jodi
