Very first Pintrest project

I, along with 95% of the rest of the world, am in love with Pintrest. I joined a while back but recently just began playing around on the site. I have already pinned several DIY crafts that I plan to try myself in the near future. This is my first. I have several pictures frames stored in my guest room and wanted to find something to do with them.
I ran to Michael's one day during lunch and picked up one sheet of scrap booking paper and three wooden letters. We have a green duvet cover in our guest bedroom so I thought the green would look nice.

Scrap booking paper                                                $0.25
Wooden letters                                                        $0.99 per letter
Picture frame (already owned)                                   FREE
Black spray paint (already owned)                             FREE
Total cost                                                                 $3.22

Family Fall Fest 2011

Today Baylee and I attended the Fall Festival at her school. They had a big turnout and it was a perfect day for it. Free food and free play is a good Saturday in my book. :)  The school rented two large inflatables and had lots of activities going on inside.

This is Eshan and his big sister. Baylee is ALWAYS talking about Eshan. I drop her off so early for school so I never get to see her little friends except for events such as this. She was THRILLED when he got there.

 What's a fall festival without lots, and I mean LOTS of sweets?
 This is Mathew......another classmate. When we were leaving Baylee made a point to give him a big ol' hug.

We had a great time and look forward to the next school event.

In other news....NeNe is coming to Tennessee on Tuesday to stay with us for a couple of weeks. Baylee is THRILLED that she will trick or treating with us this year!!

Love Saturdays like this one

Saturday I made plans for Baylee and I to drive to College Grove to spend the day with Hannah and Annabelle. Saturday was Hannah's 28th birthday and we haven't been to her house since Hannah's graduation in May. It's about a 50 mile drive so we don't get to hang out as much as we'd like. We got to their house around 10:30, had a quick bite to eat then headed to Henry Horton Park.
Who's having more fun??? Hard to tell in this picture.
I love her so much! Couldn't ask for a better friend!


Baylee wanted to do it too but her arms wouldn't stretch across so Mamma had to help.

Look at Baylee trying to help.

It was the perfect day to spend outside. The girls had a great time... the big girls did too.

Because I've been slacking lately!

So the 5K has come and gone...along with my motivation to run. I have ran a total of 4 times since the 5K! Bad Bad Bad!! The longer you put off running the harder it is to get back I am sure any runner can vouch for that. The last time I ran I did about 2 miles and it was TOUGH! Wednesday night Carl, Baylee and I headed to Finish Line and I got me a new pair of tennis shoes. It has been probably 2 or 3 years since I bought myself a pair of tennis shoes. I do wear them yes but mostly just while running and on weekends during the colder months. I am a flip flops and sandles type a girl any other time of the year.

Here are my oober cute (IMO), SUPER light Nike Free Run shoes

 They even reflect light. I took this picture with the lights on and the flash on my camera.

One day last week I got home from work around 5:30. Baylee had fallen asleep while watching TV (we have been phasing out nap time). Carl and I both tried to wake her up but nothing was working. I knew the only way to get this girl to wake up was to take her outside. She wanted to blow bubbles so that's just what we did.

Sunday Funday

I took these pictures one Sunday afternoon. Baylee LOVES her bike that NeNe and PawPaw got her for her birthday. She is miss speedy on that thing.
She likes to race. Let me re-phrase that. She likes to win. The girl has too much of her Daddy in her. We gotta work on that. She will sull up so quickly if you beat her at anything! No fit throwing anymore just major pouting!

With MawMaw
She is now doing the fake smile. Drives me nuts!!
