My daughter never ceases to amaze me! Today I ask her "Do you want to go to Mamaw and Pap Pap's house for dinner" She says "Nooo" I say "No? Why not??" She says "cause!"

Cause?? Where in the world did my 20 month old learn "cause" and how to use it correctly??

Fun with Ryleigh

The other day I was really bored and decided to take Ryleigh to Oglebay. First stop was the Mansion. I let her check out the flowers and run around. Here are some pics...

Smelling the flowers

She decided to run away from me through the flowers. Good thing no one was around...I think thats frowned

Next stop was the park...we played for a little bit, then we decided to hike to the falls. Suprisingly she walked almost the WHOLE way! She seemed to really enjoy it, touching rocks, checking out the creek, touching moss on a tree and saying "eww eww" LOL. On the way there I carried her once, but only because it was a muddy part, and I knew she would have been covered head to toe if I didnt. On the way back I had to carry her about 3 times here and there for a few min. All in all it was a great day. Ryleigh and I usually dont do things like that just her and I. We are usually out with a playgroup or something. It was nice justwith just us.

My new Buisness Venture

I started making necklaces and bracelets for Ryleigh. Lots of people commented on them, so I have decided to make them and sell them. Here are some that I have made already

If you are interested in them you can email me at

The starting price for the sets are $8. If you want a name on it or a charm it goes up a dollar for each.

Why cant we all just be nice?

Is it really that much easier to be mean to someone than to just be nice? Before you open your mouth to judge someone harshly try taking a walk in there shoes. Do you know what they've been through?

A Friend of mine responded in a post on cafe mom and the replies she got were just plain vicious! Is it that hard to give encouraging words, helpful tips and lift other moms up in there times of need?

So the next time you read a post or email or bite someones head off, take a deep breath and think..."Do I really know what they are going through?" Think of a way you can help them with there situation instead of scold them.

Lately we have been talking alot about kindness in church. Going out of your way to do something nice for someone else. Not only are you feeling good about what youve done, but I bet the person you did it for feels good as well. You can change a persons whole day with a smile or a kind word. Go try it! Its contagious :D

What do you want to be.....

when you grow up? How many times do you get asked that question when your growing up? Way to many! I never knew what I wanted to be. A teacher? A vet? A doctor? maybe an astronaut? For the most part I think I said a teacher. I always had a love for kids. After highschool I went to college to be a teacher. After the first year I changed my major to PE Teacher. After the second year I knew college just wasnt for me. I always got good grades, it just wasnt "me". I didnt know what I wanted to be. I tryed and tryed to picture myself in different jobs, but none of them seemed to be "me". I think deep down I always knew what I wanted to be. It wasnt an answer that people would expect. Its not something you hear people say. I want to be a stay at home mom. Im living my dream job right now. Being able to watch my daughter learn and grow means the world to me and I wouldnt want to be anywhere else but where im at right now. Im so blessed to be able to do that with her. I have a husband that works his butt off every day to make that possible to. It makes him happy knowing that im happy.
Im at a point in my life right now that I feel so blessed. I love my life. Sure it has its ups and downs, but overall I wouldnt change it for the world. Being able to watch my parents play and have fun with my daughter is so amazing. I love sharing that with them. I have some great friends, and a best friend that means the world to me. Shes always there for me no matter what. I couldnt ask for anything more.
