Twirlers beware!!

Standard

To all you twirlers out there (which should basically be any female who’s ever worn a swirly, poofy, twirly skirt – or in my daughter’s case, just her undies (what else is new??) ) – be careful as you do your thang! Twirling can be oh-so-dangerous! ūüôā

In My Seat

Standard

I watched this video a while back and it really stuck with me. ¬†About a pilot who was suppose to fly on 9-11, but got switched at the last minute. ¬†This interview is his take on what it feels like to have another man die in his place on that day. ¬†Pretty inspiring. ¬†I know it’s long, but worth it. ¬†But if you don’t have time for the whole thing, I’d say the real punch of it comes at about the 9 minute mark and on. ¬†Just praying the peace and comfort of God’s arms are wrapped around the families of the 911 victims today. ¬†Another reminder that is world is not our home…..

I’ll take one in green & yellow please! :)

One site that I try to check almost everyday is the “Daily Deals” from Target.com. ¬†They post 4 or 5 really good deals for anything from lawn equipment to baby supplies to clothing to household cleaners. The deal only lasts one day and it includes free shipping. ¬†I don’t think I’ve ever actually bought anything from it, b/c I just haven’t seen anything I can’t live without, but today that changes!

Today’s Daily Deal is a Mossimo Supply Junior Kimono dress. ¬†They are buy one get one free for $18 (so only 9 bucks each!). ¬†I bought a similar dress from Target a couple of years ago and use it ALL the time. And for multiple purposes – it’s been a maternity shirt, a swimsuit cover, a nightgown, a dress w/leggings, and a tunic w/jeans. 5 uses with 1 piece of clothing for $9?? SCORE! ¬†Can you tell I’m a bit frugal and love repurposing my clothes?? hee hee! ¬†So anyways- if you like these type of dresses (or whatever you’re going to use it for), hop on over to Target and grab a couple. ¬†They come in a tons of colors and have had great reviews. ¬†Yes, I read most all 37 reviews to make sure I was getting a good product! (Although you can return it if it doesn’t work for you). ¬†My favorite review said something like, “hides all my flabby mommy curves”. ha! Read that one and was like “SOLD!” ūüôā

I ain’t afraid of no ghost!

Standard

this is how we spent most of our saturday. ¬†dancing to halloween tunes on pandora. ¬†carving pumpkins. staying warm by the fire. not wearing shirts. ¬†well, the kids at least. ¬†ūüôā ¬†hitting our sister. ¬†getting in trouble for hitting our sister. head bobbin’ and twirling. roasting pumpkin seeds. eating pumpkin seeds. making messes. being lazy.

i love fall.

Easter Extravaganza!

Standard

So an Easter post after¬†a Mother’s Day post?? Sorry- I guess I have a mild form of Holiday Dyslexia?? ūüėõ

This past Easter was super, super fun and super, super busy!¬† We went down to Georgia to celebrate with my family and we were so lucky because my brother Kyle and his wife Stacy were also able to make it from Kentucky.¬† It’s kind of rare for all of us to get together at the same time, so this weekend was very special!¬† Well not only was it Easter, but we also decided to throw a baby shower for Kyle and Stacy.¬† There little one is due in July and I just can’t wait to meet my new niece or nephew!!! I am seriously already so in love with him or her! It’s really weird to think of my little (26 years old!) brother being a dad, but weird in a good way.¬† In a very excited, happy-for-you-my-heart-is-gonna-burst¬†kind of¬†way. ūüôā¬† He and Stacy are going to be the most loving and fun parents and I can’t wait to watch them fall in love with their baby! (Also can’t wait to spoil him/her myself!).¬† Ok I think I’m rambling now…..

But yes. We threw them a baby shower that was fun and laid-back.¬† BBQ, onesie¬†painting, bubbles for the kids.¬† Good times! (I’m¬†trying to bring back popular sayings from the¬†early 2000’s….is it working??!)¬† And on top of that¬†I also got to take maternity pics of Stacy’s adorable baby bump.¬† We did it¬†at my parent’s house, which was¬†the perfect outdoor setting with a white fence, an open pasture, and some old rusty¬†piece of farm¬†equipment that for some reason looked cool in the¬†background. At least i¬†think so! ūüôā¬†¬†And of then¬†course we can’t forget the most important event of the weekend- Easter!¬† It is my favorite holiday of the year! Celebrating my Risen Lord, His triumph over death and sin……forget the chocolate eggs and silly bunnies…….the Resurrection is where it’s at! ūüôā¬† (But I do enjoy the fun bunny/egg hunt traditions too.¬† Just don’t ever want that to take precedence over the real thing.)¬† Needless to say, it was a¬†jam-packed weekend.¬† So get ready for an onslaught of about a million pictures…..

there were going to be a lot of kids at the baby shower so i wanted to have a fun activity for them to do.  we had a onsie painting station set up.  that way they could get creative, but also make a little gift for the baby too!

of course my dad has to make a joke w/his onesie!¬† poor Baby Morris! you don’t know what crazy family you’re coming into!

 i love this one!

GA already stealing her little cousin’s toys

the happy parents-to-be with their friends (who are also expecting!)

Kyle is into bike riding and my aunt made this really cool diaper bike thingy! loved it!!

¬†this is the bassinet¬†that’s been passed down in our family for all the new babies to sleep in it- also a nice gift holder for the shower

my mom did this extra-special thing where she got name plates of all the babies that have slept in it and adhered them to the bassinet. how neat is that??

 even my two little ones slept in there for their first few months of life

¬†random pic-¬†but we did get a quick break to visit my childhood friend Kelly who just bought her first house.¬† it’s so beautiful! here we are in the “craft room” (i wanna craft room! ūüôā ) playing w/the girls

the whole crew!¬† we were actually all together for a family picture-¬†woo-hoo!!! of course this will only be up-to-date for a couple of months before Kyle and Stacy’s baby arrives. then who knows how long before we’re all together again! ha ha! ohwell!

So that was the Easter Extravaganza!¬† Like I said, super fun and super busy!¬† Will post Kyle and Stacy’s maternity pics soon- they came out so well!¬† She’s the happiest pregnant lady ever.¬†
