Our Weekend

This weekend was so much fun! We got to see lots of friends, do lots of fun things and eat great food all weekend. Friday, we had a little visitor by the name of Ava come over! Ava is two weeks old and is just the most precious little baby girl. I got to hold her and she was just so teeny!!! I can't believe that Addi used to be that size. Oh me, this surely didn't help with the baby fever! Haha! And Addi just LOVES babies these days so she was very excited that Ava came to play. As soon as they walked in, Addi just started saying "baby!" over and over again. It was so sweet. Then she would stick her head in the carseat and lay her head on Ava and go "ohhh" it was cracking me up. Also, she was very helpful with making sure Ava had her paci, and offering Ava her bottle. Haha!

After they left, Addi and Dixie had some good play time together. And yes, Addi is still in her pj's! We've gotten into a bad habit these days of not getting dressed and just being lazy! So easy to do in the winter months, but we need to get it in gear this week, because we have A LOT do do.

We went to Texarkana that night to visit with Mur and Granddad before they left on their cruise! We ate Mexican food for dinner and it was so good.

When we got back to the house, Addi watched some golf while eating crackers. Multi-tasking at it's best.

Then it was bath time! Apparently, when Josh was a little boy, his favorite thing to do at Mur and Granddad's was to take a bath in their HUGE tub and play with color changing legos. Addi enjoyed it very much too, until she got a little too relaxed...I'll let you guess what happened. :)

We had a time getting Addi to bed that night, but we finally did around 11:30. Good thing is, she slept till 10:30 the next morning. We got ready and went to meet our friends, Whitney and Andrew, and their precious kids! I didn't get any pictures from lunch, because there was a giant sandbox next to our table (we sat outside because it was GORGEOUS!) that was very tempting to two little girls! I finally got to see little Cade!!! He is just the sweetest little thing!!! We went back to their house after lunch to play and the girls had such a great time.

Eden was so helpful with washing the windows. :)

And Addi definitely stuck her finger in Cade's mouth. Mortified!

We also watched a little bit of Despicable Me! It was our first time to see it, and it was hilarious. Josh was very popular with the kids. :)

Isn't he just the sweetest!

We had to get back, because we went to celebrate Carson's birthday with some friends that night. Emma came down to watch Addi for us! We had SO much fun at dinner.

Addi had another late night and didn't go to bed till midnight. :( I knew we would probably be missing church and it made me really sad! Since the holidays, we have not had consistent church attendance, so we definitely need to work on that. :) But, we did have a fun afternoon just relaxing and spending time together.

Oh and here is Addi's new toy, Emma and Grandpa picked that out!

I decided to put my Valentine's decorations out tonight. I love them!

Hope y'all had a great weekend!!!

What I'm Loving Wednesday

I decided to do this today since I've been seeing it on a couple other blogs, and we really didn't do much today so I thought it would be a fun list!

I am loving that me and Addi stayed in our pj's for most of the day today!

I am loving this little dress that I finished up last night. Ever since I saw that print in Hobby Lobby, I knew I wanted to make a peasant dress out of it!

I am loving this Green Lantern onesie that my Uncle Dennis gave Addi for Christmas! I used to be obsessed with comic books growing up and Green Lantern was my fav!

I am loving this new fabric I got in today!

I am also loving that Addi had so much fun playing peek a boo with it!

I am loving this punch recipe! I got it off of this blog. It tastes just like Mexico Chiquito's punch, and in my opinion, their's is the best! Me and Josh make it twice a week now.

Oh and I'm glad to know that I'm not the only one in a funk! Although, today while Addi napped (in the car I might add-UPS woke her up after five minutes) I made a list of everything I wanted to get done in the next few months. That includes: outfits I want to make, gifts, spring cleaning, organizing and de-cluttering rooms, trips, parties, and other fun things. It made me feel so much better seeing it all on paper and knowing when I can get these things done. I guess I just felt like I had all these things going on, but no way to process them. And I just love making lists! Haha!

Hope y'all had a great day!!!

Hugs are Dangerous

First, let me just say I have been in such a funk lately. I just feel so disorganized and out of balance. I don't know what my deal is. Also, my embroidery machine has been acting up which is SO frustrating because it's only a month old. Hopefully it's just a quick fix!

Today, Addi and I met with Sara and Lola for a little Chik fil A action! We had a great time until Addi decided she was done eating and it was NOW time to play. So, luckily CFA has a great little play area. There were a lot of kids in there, but most of them weren't much bigger than Addi so I wasn't too worried, plus there was an older girl who helped Addi slide and was good at shielding her from the rowdier boys. Anyways, so Addi and Lola were having a fabulous time playing...

And yes, those are horrible Iphone pics, check out Sara's blog because she got some really cute ones! Anyways, so everything was going great until Addi decided to give Lola a hug. Which was so sweet, but as she was giving her a hug, they both lost their balance and bonked both of their heads HARD on the steps. :( They both cried big tears and Addi now has a giant purple knot on her forehead.

They finally got calmed down after we gave them some ice cream. Haha! By the way, if you don't open your kid's meal toy, you can bring it up to the counter for free ice cream! I had no clue! Anyways, I had so much fun with y'all Sara!

Oh and I had to share these photos. Again, horrible iphone photos, I'm just too lazy to get my actual camera out. :( Addi's new favorite show is Mickey Mouse ClubHouse. We watch it every morning and I think it's so cute how she sits Indian style to watch it!

Oh! And sweet Sara also gave me this little pretty today! She is SO sweet and super talented! Go to her craft blog to order one!

Hope y'all had a great day!!!

Weekend Recap

Friday was my brother's 20th birthday! I can't believe he is 20!!! So crazy. We went to Searcy to go get him and bring him to Little Rock to celebrate. For lunch, we ate at Hunkapie. Oh. My. Word. One of the best burgers we've ever eaten, definitely the best onion rings, and the pie is out of this world. They even make their own ranch which was DELICIOUS with the onion rings!

We went out to dinner at Macaroni Grill, which was Adam's choice for his birthday dinner. Afterwards, there was a Call Of Duty Marathon in the game room. Addi and I stayed upstairs for that one.

Saturday morning, I had to take Adam back to Searcy since he had to work. I also got to have lunch with Cassie! It was so fun to sit and talk for literally hours! Haha. Addi went with Daddy, Grandpa and Uncle Landon to the Big Buck Classic. I just have to say, Josh is amazing and dressed her so cute and even put a bow in her hair!

Addi got her picture made with a bald eagle, rattlesnakes, a baby alligator and sitting in a deer stand. :)

When I got back, Aunt Mia paid us a little visit! We also got to exchange Christmas presents! Addi loves all her new books!

Saturday night, Addi did not go to bed till close to 1!!! We tried so many times to put her down, but she would either talk to herself and laugh hysterically or throw everything out of her bed including pacis and then it was crying. Oh me.

This morning, she woke up at 10. She was in a great mood and we got some really cute pictures.

We've just had a lazy day here!

Hope y'all had a great weekend!!!
