I want to be June


  • My noodle is sick! Flu and the croup! Poor thing. She has never been this sick in her small little life. I feel helpless. I keep praying for The Lord to take it from her and give it to me. Bless her little heart. Praying for a fast recovery.
  • As I am typing this my phone rings. It's a number I do not know. I answer it. It was the doctor we saw yesterday morning (whom we were supposed to have seen this morning for another flu test but we didn't cause we went back to another clinic last night and she tested positive) called me. He told me yesterday that one way or another even if she was fine and dandy this morning to please call him and let him know how she was, so I did. I of course talked to his RN. But just now he called me himself! Only one other time in my life have I actually had THE DOCTOR call. He had already received the message from his RN but wanted to call and check on Eviee and make sure she was OK and to tell us to call if we need to be seen or if there is anything he can do for us. I just love good people. And good doctors.
  • Apparently I drink so much coffee that my daughter is confused even in her sick state when mommy doesn't have coffee in her hand! Maybe I should change this??? Yea I didn't think so either! It runs in my family. And I have no doubt that when she is old enough she too will love coffee.
  • I can't believe that in a few days my boutique will open. I am SO FREAKING OUT HERE!!!! What if people don't like what I have? What if they don't like my prices? What if? What if? I can't stop. I keep praying to The Lord to please bless this company. That I promise I will bless others as well. It is really scary to start something like this. This isn't me joining the Mary Kay team (which btw I am still doing if you need anything) this is all me. Starting this from the ground up! MY own money going into this. If it flops.... maybe I shouldn't think about that right now. Just so thankful for everyone liking my page. Enough likes surely I will find somebody who likes what I have. (ok I feel a little better getting that off my chest)
  • Can you believe it is already about time for Valentines Day? Not that that's a big deal or anything, just that time is flying by insanely fast!
  • I have no idea what the heck I am going to do for dinner. I am typing this post with Eviee asleep in my lap. She doesn't want to be put done. And I am sure as heck not going to put her down to cook dinner or wash clothes. Humm Maid please???
  • I need a new blog design. Anybody want to take care of that for me?
  • I really want to find "our" church. I am having major with drawls .We went to this one church this last two Sundays but I think we have both decided that it isn't "our" church. I'm just ready to be back in the swing of things again. I miss FBCGW!!!!!!!
  • Sean has been working a lot of crazy hours lately. I have a friend who always says that when her husband is gone she is a single parent. I never really "got it". Even back in AR Sean worked way more then he does now but I'm starting to feel like she does. What's it like to have a husband who leaves for work at 730am drops the kids off at school (not that mine is big enough but stay with me) then heads to work. He gets off work stops by the flower shop walks in the door at 5pm looking like he just steps out of the T.V. Wifey has dinner ready (which just for the record I almost always do)(except today it won't happen today)(and maybe tomorrow). You know what I'm talking about??? Like Leave it to Beaver! That's what I want. I want to be June! Daydream time!!!

Well I guess that's about all I got for ya. I know you just love reading about my exciting life. :)

Little Loves Boutique, How it came to be.

Do want you love and you will never work a day in your life.
 
 
Anybody that knows me, knows that I am crazy in love with babies, baby clothes, kids and kids clothes. So it only made since to open a children's boutique, well that and dressing Eviee is my like my favorite hobby EVER!!! I love finding new and "rare" clothes to put her in. I don't want her dressed like the other ten girls in her Sunday school class (not saying that's bad but not for me). I want her to shine! I want her to stand out!!!
So this year I was starting to get the "itch" if you will about wanting to go back to work, only I didn't mean 40 hrs plus a week, or anything where I had to show up to work at 8am, or answer to anyone, or do what anyone told me or anything where I would have to put Eviee in the care of somebody else most of the week. HA! So with a lot of prayer and my husband so faithfully believing in me I decided to open Little Loves Boutique.
This Boutique is hopefully going to allow me to continue to stay home with my little love (wondered where I got the name???) and have something for myself. I absolutely love shopping and little peoples shopping is even better. It has definitely been an adventure starting this as I have NO experience in opening a business but it has been fun never the less. (take that back, I actually opened  a Target store back in my HR days but anyways)
Little Loves Boutique will be mostly little girls clothing 0-10 in sizes but I am working on getting some boys clothing as well as "other" items. Two nights a week we will hold a sale. Items are limited! Like I said I don't want my child or anybody else's wearing the same outfit as all the other children. I want to make my child and everyone else's stand out! We are not Walmart people! There will be NO CAMO despite my husband best try. There will be NO CARTOON picture on anything! Our clothing is made for play, pictures, church, anything! Comfortable, affordable, stylish boutique clothing. NOTHING OVER $50.00!!!! EVER!
Little Loves opens February 3 at 7pm. Right now sales will be Monday and Wednesday nights from 7-9 pm but this may change. Each night we will have different items. Each night there will be different sizes available, and once again items are limited!!! Get them while you can.
I'd also like to Thank everyone who has helped spread the word about Little Loves. It is really times like these when you find out who has your back and who doesn't you know? It has totally melted my heart seeing good friends, new friends, friends I don't even know, like and share my page but it has really been nice to see friends I haven't talked to in forever and who have no children of their own like and share my page. The Lord has truly blessed me with wonderful people. And I love my people. Thank you everyone! I love you all I am so excited to see where The Lord takes this business!

Life

I just posted this to my Facebook page...

New things are happening everyday! Life is getting busy! Eviee is growing faster then I can blink! This weather is crazy! Life is GREAT! My husband is amazing! My daughter is wonderful! GOD IS SO GOOD!

So let me tell you why...

Everyday it seems as though something new is happening to me or to my family. And today is no different. My friend and I decided that we were going to join hand in hand, sweat to sweat, fat to fat (gross right???) and we are joining the gym together and making a commitment to ourselves our families and each other to get fit and healthy! Along the way I am going to be keeping up with our progress through our new blog! I will share the link to that once it is up and running.

Well it comes at no big surprise that life is busy what with being married, having a two year old, starting a business and now with a "get fit" mission! Life is just busy, but it's a good kind of busy.

Eviee... My sweet angel! How I wish time would slow down and let me soak in this time with her. Everyday she just gets bigger and bigger. Whether it is out growing her clothes, or talking like she is five. I've been writing a journal to her for sometime now and I feel like lately I get it out more and more. Everyday there is something she does or says that I do not want to forget. I love this child!

The weather here in T-Town (I can say that cause I'm right on the boarder of Tulsa and BA! HA) is insane! One day it will be in the 60's and Eviee and I are checking out all of the parks near us and the next day we are bundled up on the couch watching WAY TOO many movies because it is freezing outfit! I mean let me just say that I do like winter. But what I really don't like is when it is winter and it feels like summer. I mean really??? HATE IT! Make up your mind already please!

I think about where I was just four months ago and where I am at now and life really is my kind of GREAT again! And I could not be happier!

Sean is amazing! He is the most loving, kindest, gentle man. He is the best father to Eviee. She is the luckiest little girl to have him as her daddy. I am the luckiest woman to have him as my husband! This man I do not deserve but am so thankful for him. He makes want to be a better person. If you find that kind of person then they are amazing!

Eviee is my wonderful little two year old sassy, sweet, precious, angel baby. Without her my life has no meaning. She is my dream come true. She is my little princess!

GOD IS SO GOOD!

6 months late

Well here we are a day away from Eviee turning two and a half and I am finally getting her birthday posted. That's life baby!
 
When it's your birthday and your momma has lost her mind, then you may just get a cupcake for breakfast!
(PS she hated it)
 
 Eviee's birthday was in the dead of summer and we had a big pool so of course we had a pool party duh!!!!!

Eviee loves loves loves the water and loved it even more that day. Maybe it was cause she knew it was her birthday or maybe it was the fact that there were a lot other people in the pool with her!

I decided on doing a burlap and yellow " You are my sunshine" theme for her birthday this year.
 
 
It was a wonderful day spent in the sun with our family and friends.
 
 
We are so blessed to have so many people who truly love our child . We are completely blessed to have been given this child. Eviee is the greatest gift for Sean and I. She is our little princess. She is the funniest, smartest, sweetest little two year old girl.
 
And the last picture taken the day of her party...
 
Somebody was completely worn the heck out!

Picture Post

Ok so here are some pictures to kind of update you on what has happened since my last
"real" post with pictures. (IN MAY)
We went on Vacation to Texas in June! Eviee loved the beach! And still ask me to go back all the time.
Happy "LATE" 4th of July!

July 14, 2013 Eviee turned TWO!!!!!
Next post full of pictures.
Aug. 2013 Eviee started Mothers Day Out at Church
 
Sept. 2013 was a very rough month for our family and I am just so thankful that I had this sweet angel to take care of and to make me laugh during this time. If it hadn't had been for her I don't know what I would have done.
In Oct. 2013 we enjoyed all the fun things fall has to offer.
And we made the decision to list our house for sale and move back to the Tulsa, OK area. Little did we know that our house would sell two and a half weeks after it went on the market! The Lord sure did answer my prayers FAST!
Nov. 2013 we spent Thanksgiving just the three of us. Of course I forgot to get a picture of all of us but at least I got tons one of this cutie!!!!
Dec. 2013 Christmas! Enough said.
Post maybe coming soon. Maybe.
I also got the wise idea to open a children's boutique!
POST COMING!
And New Years!
 
This year I accepted The Lord into my heart! I started attending the most wonderful church where I made amazing "life long" friends. But with finding The Lord I have also seen how hard The Devil really works. This year has been amazing and horrible. And honestly if it hadn't have been for Eviee and The Lord I don't know how I would have made it. But in the end I see it was all part of Gods plan for me, and today I am happy to say that I and my family have come out on top. The Devil will not get me for I am with The Lord!
I am very excited to see what God has planned for my family in 2014!

I've missed you

Hey Y'all! Did you think I had fallen off the face of the earth??? Life has been insane busy! That and my computer was dead and I didn't want to spend the money fixing it! HA!

So it's been months and I really just don't care to relive all the good, bad, and ugly that has happened so how about just the good???

We sold our house in Greenwood AR two and a half weeks after we listed it! And on top of that they wanted us out in three weeks!!!! Down fall to this was we ended up in an apartment until we can find a house, but hey who's house sells that fast??? Definitely an answered pray!

We've been back in the Tulsa Area for a little over a month now and are settling in nicely. But I am biting at the bone to start looking for houses!

Eviee is potty trained!!! I hate saying that. It sounds like I am talking about a dog or something but whatever! She is! I am so proud of her. She even wakes up during the night telling me she has to go. O yea that's my girl!!!

Eviee is expanding her little mind everyday! Along with all the "early" learning stuff (abc's,123's,colors,shapes,etc) she can spell her name, knows her days of the week and we are currently working on the months of the year and all of the fifty states. I love watching her learn.

We spent Thanksgiving just the three of us. This was a first!!!! And I have to tell you I think we might just have to make it a tradition! Don't get me wrong we love our family but.... Do you know my family??? Anyways....

Sean and I celebrated our fourth wedding anniversary December 12th! I love you baby! And I would do it all over again in a heart beat!

Christmas has come and gone! Can I get a AMEN! Is that bad???? Don't get me wrong, I love Christmas time and all the memories new and old that come along with it, spending time with family and friends and as a new Christian I loved reading about the birth of Jesus and teaching Eviee but I don't like to spend a lot of money.I love the finer things in life but I do not like the price tag that comes with it! And Christmas is very pricey for us. Shut up! I don't want to hear about not spoiling your kids and blah blah blah! I spoil my child like crazy and I don't see anything wrong with it, I just don't like spending the money HA! On Christmas and her birthday I go all out, the way I see it is if I can't spoil her twice a year then when??? She is my pride and joy! End of story! Anyways yes I get very happy when Christmas time comes, especially now that I have Eviee (she makes it so much more fun) but I also get very happy when the last present is unwrapped and all the others have been given away. I love knowing that my child and hubby are pleased with my findings and that now I can pack it all up and be done until next year!

And I guess the biggest news of all is I am opening a children's boutique!!!! You can find my boutique at Little Loves Boutique on Facebook!www.facebook.com/littlelovesboutiquellc . Right now I have been all kinds of busy ordering girls clothing but I am planning on adding boys as soon as I can. I am so very excited about this new journey in my life. I have been busy ordering clothing and getting everything ready! Our page will have it's first sell on February 4 @7pm. Come on over and like our page!

Oh yea and the hubby bought me a new computer (along with some pretties) for Christmas so I AM BACK TO BLOGGING! It's been too long!

As soon as I learn how to do everything on this new computer I will post alot a few pictures from the last few months!

I hope everyone has a wonderful New Year!

I'm happy to be back!
