Paw Paw and NeNe made a spur of the moment trip to Tennessee for this Memorial Day weekend. Saturday we were at the zoo when the gates opened. We spent 3 hours fighting cicadas but all in all it was an enjoyable morning.

There is nothing like celebrating a wedding anniversary when both parties are SICK! That's Carl and I celebrate 8 years of wedded bliss with head colds!!!!  B had a runny nose and cough over the weekend but I assumed it was just allergies. Both Carl and myself woke up Sunday night with sore throats. Now it has turned into a full fleged colds. Baylee doesn't seem to be taking it as hard as Mommy and Daddy are. I guess we are nothing but a couple of  big wimps! Baylee does have a doctors appointment at 1:50 this afternoon to check on her cough. She also complained that one of her ears was hurting last night during her bath. "Mine too baby!" I guess the celebration will have to be put on hold until Mamma and Daddy have time to recoop! Happy Tuesday!

Daddy's Birthday

Carl turned 28 on May 14. He and his friend CJ had an EARLY tee time. Baylee and I hung out with Jody and we did some shopping and movie watchin' while the boys were gone.
 She LOVES CJ! He is so good with her. 
 Our sweet friends got him a cake!

 Waiting patiently for Jody to cut the cake. This girl LOVES cake!

 The gals
 Lil cheesers
We had a LONG yet great day. Carl fully enjoyed his birthday.

Portrait day at Smartt Steps

Baylee's dance class had pictures scheduled for Monday afternoon. The recital is less than 3 weeks away. I can't wait to see my girl shake her groove thang....OR freeze up like a deer in headlights. Either is possible. LOL
Sitting in the car waiting to go in. We were a little early.
Inside the studio waiting her turn for pics. It was a mad house that day with people everywhere. Some there for pictures and others there for rehearsals.
Baylee was the first one to have her pictures done. They were able to get a big smile out of her but not without much effort from the photographer and Cayce her dance teacher.
 HOORAY it's over!
 Some of the girls waiting on group pictures.
 This was hilarious to watch....trying to get just the right pose out of 3 and 4 year olds. I was crackin' up!

A Tribute to Mothers

Some members of the music leadership team at our church put this together for Mother's Day. I was rolling watching this LIVE on Sunday morning.

Dance Dance Dance

Baylee has been taking dance classes every Thursday evening since August.  It is a combo class which consists of tap and ballet.  On June 8 she will be performing in the end of the year recital. Yesterday I ran by the studio to pick up tickets to the recital as well as her costume. I snapped a couple of pictures with my phone. The gloves were missing so we will have to get those on Thursday night when she has class.


I was told that her class was dancing to a "funkied up version" of the Itsy Bitsy Spider. If you ask me the costume looks more like a pink bumble bee. I didn't take a picture of the headpeice she is to wear. Pictures are scheduled for next Monday. I can't wait to see all the little girlies in their costumes.

Mother's Day

This Mother's Day, like most in the past, was very low key.  We all got dressed and headed to church. Carl's Grandmother and Dad came with us.  I snapped these pictures before leaving.

Baylee and her MawMaw
(incase you didn't know this woman hung the moon, in Baylee's eyes anyway)

This beautiful girl can snap me out of a bad mood in .2 seconds. She has the sweetest heart and she absolutely melts me everytime she says "I Love You Mommy."
with Pappy
It's not everyday that this man gets dressed up.  He's a t-shirt and blue jeans kind of guy :)

Passing time while Daddy was getting ready. Probably blow drying his hair. hehe
Love those baby blues
Mamma's girl

Dancing Queen
I just noticed that we were all wearing stripes. Obviously not planned!

The rest of the day was spent grocery shopping, doing laundry, and laying low at home. Again, very low key but still enjoyable nonetheless!

Happy Mamma's Day!

I have been wanting one of these Mac Daddy refrigerators since they came out. However, I had no intentions of paying the hefty price for one. Over the last few weeks I have noticed that Popsicles don't really freeze all the way and items in the fridge just didn't seem COLD. We had someone come out on Monday to take a look at it and low and behold, the compressor was indeed going out. Instead of paying 800 bucks for a single part we decided to splurge and get the "fridge of my dreams." ;). 
I am indeed in love and it was delivered and installed on Thursday.  However, the GENIUS that installed it did not connect the water line properly to the hook-up for the ice maker. That night I noticed water on the floor. I wiped it up not thinking anything of it. I went downstairs to do some laundry and noticed water dripping from the ceiling. I SCREAMED for Carl to come take a look and he said it was coming from the fridge. He ran back upstairs to pull the fridge out from the wall and sure enough....HUGE pool of water! After further inspection I noticed water behind the couch!!! We have a laminate wood flooring in the living room. Water on laminate is a BIG no no! Once I started wiping it up I noticed the bubbles beginning to form underneath!!! SOOOO with that said, we have people coming out next week to take a look at the damage that was done to our flooring and the ceiling downstairs. Fingers crossed that it is nothing major!!! Although if it is, cost is definitely on them!

After we made it back from the marathon, Ashley took a much needed nap, Carl got busy grillin' some burgers, and Hannah and Annabelle came over. We decided to pull out Taboo to play that night. I LOVE me some Taboo. Carl observed while Hannah and I teamed up and Ashley and Kyle were on a team.

Carl was in charge of the timer...AND he also helped out Kyle and Ashley's team. It's ok though, they needed the extra help. ;)
Amazon Woman! I love her!

Me and my brother.
Carl (the cheater) and Ashley

She likes the camera!

Poor little Ashley was tired. And BURNT!

They're that cute little couple that makes you want to puke!

Oh crap, how do I describe this one??

FUN night!!
