Spring has SPRUNG!

Well hey there! Wow, it's been so long the blogger layout has changed & I'm a little weirded out. Ha. I'm sincerely sorry for my loooong absence, I don't even have an excuse! I kind of got into a blogger "funk" & then fell so far behind I really didn't feel like playing catch up. Make sense? I plan on catching y'all up SOON!

Anyways, for a pretty short post today, I thought I would show y'all a picture of my first bloom! I've been trying to be more "domesticated", so I planted some early flowers. I definitely did a little jig when I saw my "babies" blooming! I've been taking really good care of them, letting them outside in the day for sunshine, bringing them inside at night, talking to them (ha), watering them, etc. I couldn't be more ready for spring! 

My hyacinth bloom, & there are tulips behind them

I plan on planting some more soon once it warms up. Spring is right around the corner!! What are some of y'all's favorite flowers?? Do tell. :)

Oh, & of course I must leave you with an adorable picture of my niece on Valentines Day. Her blue eyes MELT.MY.HEART!

Chrysalis #30

Alright girls! I need your help to pray for a dear friend of mine who is participating in her first Chrysalis this weekend!

As I'm sure some of you may remember, I did mine in August & it was easily the best weekend of my life. I did my first VLOG & talked a little bit of my experience.

I was SO excited to be able to sponsor someone, & my friend Lauren was the perfect girl for Chrysalis #30. Lauren is an AMAZING friend of mine. She ALSO has her own blog! So, you should totally go leave her a comment, so when she gets back, she feel a little bit of love from the blog world! :)

We dropped her off yesterday at 7, & will pick her up Sunday around 4. I cannot tell you how EXCITED I am for her! I know God is going to do some AMAZING things this weekend, & will show her His love like she's never seen it before, He did that for me at least. :)

Right before we left...I feel like a proud momma :)

 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. John 14:27

My First Post of Twenty-Twelve!

First & foremost---HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

I have some major catch up to do on this little ole blog of mine so here we go! We've had a very busy past couple of weeks...

We went home a couple of days before Christmas, & pulled off a wonderful surprise party for D's mom on the 23rd! It was awesome!

I spent Christmas day with lots of family, & made red velvet pancakes that morning, which we decided would be a new tradition. They were SOOO good! We also had a WHITE Christmas which made the day even more cozy & fun....well, the driving on ice part was NOT fun considering my parents house is on a hill! We got so many wonderful things.

My sister & baby niece came back with us on the 27th (Tuesday) to stay til Sunday. We literally SHOPPED til WE DROPPED all week, went out to eat, stayed up late talking, and it was fabulous. My friends even got to meet my sweet pea!

My parents came up on Friday to spend New Years with us! It was a great weekend filled with {more} shopping, pedi/mani's, food, & fun.The two bottom pictures are from Cracker Barrel -- love those cute little syrups, & the chicken & dumplings are my FAV! :)
 They left on Sunday, & I must admit I teared up. Spending almost 2 weeks with my niece was so special, I miss her so much!

I had off on Monday, & it was spent taking down Christmas decor {boo}, having my carpets cleaned, having the puppy dogs groomed, laundry, & more organizing! Fun times.

Every new year, I always feel the need to clean, & re-vamp myself---which means hair cut on Friday! :)

I am definitely rambling Happy Tuesday!
