New hobby/obsession....

I totally have a new hobby/obsession!! Furniture!!  I wish I had taken a picture of the before, BEFORE I primered the piece, but I didn't.  Next time I start a project I will take better pictures...BEFORE, DURING, and AFTER!!!  It's a side table that was brown with brass drawer handle.

This is after I primered it.

This is after it was primered, painted, distressed, & glazed.

I'm totally in love with it, I also mod podged the planter, the red wasn't jiving with me!!

 My very first piece, I have several pieces in the house that are next!! YAY!! :D

A Year Ago Today....

I was about 50+lbs heavier {seriously}!

A year ago today, I was getting ready to meet you! I was filled with excitement and anticipation, for I knew you would be the last.

A year ago today, we arrived at Baylor Frisco and I was terrified they would send me home again for the 3rd false alarm.

A year ago today, whoever said the more pregnancies you had the easier it gets.  Sorry sister but you were the hardest to get out, from the nurses blowing two of my veins for an IV (which has NEVER happened to me) to Dr. Payne not being able to break my water, because something was in the way...your little baby head.  You had little scratches all over the top of your head from that drama. :(

A year ago today, your brother and sister had NO clue what was about to happen.  Colton had no issues.  Isabella however called you DOG for the first few weeks.

A year ago today, at exactly 11:41pm, you took your first breath. 

A year ago today, you took our breath away!

Happy FIRST Birthday my sweet sweet angel we love you so very much!!

Dear nearly one year old little miss gigi....

In just 2 short days you will be turning ONE--and I am in complete denial.

Seems just like yesterday when your brother and sister were 6 months old, we found out about you.  The news was both scary and exciting, I didn't know how I would handle 3 babies under the age of 3.  I thank God everyday that not only did he bless us with a beautiful and healthy baby girl, but that He gave you the sweetest and calmest disposition. 

Don't get me wrong, there have been P.L.E.N.T.Y of these days:

And this one:

And most recently THIS one!

BUT, all your GOOD days far outweigh the bad ones:

So here's hoping your mamma learns how to cope with this whole turning one business--because so far it's not looking too good.

I love you.

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!

I've ALWAYS loved St. Patrick's Day, such a fun holiday and GREEN, love Green!!  I totally forgot to post my St. Patty's Day wreath I made, its been hanging up since the 1st of March, because I was on top of my game!! =D

Pretty simple, I just wrapped some cream yarn and made felt and fabric rosettes I found the cute little hanging thingy at Hobby Lobby {of course} and I LOVED it because its got a little boy and girl {reminds of me of the twins}

HAHHA Now on to this little GEM of a picture! This was Isabella after she awoke from her nap and shopping all day with Mimi.  She HAD to put on her glasses and she's obsessed with straws.  That was our cup from lunch full of water.  This dress is precious, I had it made and its all upcycled knits...FUN and CUTE!! We love it!! :D

Happy St. Patrick's Day!!

SO....I've been 32 years old for ONE whole week now!  That's so strange to type, I certaintly don't feel 32.  I met Michael when he was 32 1/2 and that seems like ages ago, so much LIFE has happened since then!! =D

SO....Isabella went to her first "friend" birthday party.  Leighton turned 3 and had a rocking fairy party at the cutest little girly place in Downtown McKinney called Made of Sugar and Spice, so fun and so sweet!! Isabella was very very shy, poor girl!!

Um, but obviously not "shy" enough to NOT eat yummy birthday cake! LOL

SO....We are getting ready to celebrate another birthday and huge MILESTONE...Gianna Micaela will celebrate her 1st birthday on March 23rd.  I'm kinda so sad that this will be my last First birthday to throw. {sniff, sniff}  I have been doing/planning a little here and a little there for almost 2 weeks now.  I have mad respect for people that do this professionally its ALOT work.  Every little detail...EVERY little detail and I think its those LITTLE details that make these celebrations oh so special. 

This is what our dining room table looks like right now, I think for one or two days last week it was clean!!

SO....ending this with these SO SWEET pictures!!
