Just a little bit about Austin lately.
 Some days he decides he would rather sleep on the floor at daycare instead of his cot.

We had a play date at the Jenkins' last week.  Riley, their dog, kept taking food from Austin's hand.  He's a pretty smart boy and instead of crying about it, he just moved to 'higher ground'.  He is so funny sometimes.

The child loves the bath tub.  He crawls in even when there is no water and it's not bath time.  He truly has a mind of his own.

Teacher Appreciation Week

For Teacher Appreciation Week I got these beautiful flowers from a student.  They were delivered to school and all.  It was really sweet and pretty funny to see the look on her face when I told her the flowers were from her.  My kids really know how to make me feel special.

Muffins for Mom

On Friday morning daycare had Muffins for Mom.  Austin and I got there a few minutes early so we could sit and eat a muffin together.  In the hustle of the morning it was so nice to sit and spend some one on one time with him.  I think I am his biggest fan!

We LOVE Ms. Mary & Ms. Megan

Austin's teachers are the BEST.  We love them both so very much.  So for teacher appreciation week we really wanted them to know how loved they were.  We also wanted them to know how much we appreciate them loving and taking such great care of Austin.  He can be a handful...

The tag read, You are one smart cookie.

When asked if the cookies were homemade, of course they were homemade in the Wal-mart bakery.  Really, I have good intentions just not the time.

A little tin filled with hershey's hugs.  The tag read, A teacher can't live on apples alone, they need hugs too.

Anti-bacterial soap apple flavored.  Tag read, I would hand-pick you all over again.

A mason jar full of smartie candy.  The sticker on the front said Thank You for being a Smartie.

Rose bushes with a plant stick made like a ruler with a flower that read Thank You for helping Austin grow.

Thank you Ms. Mary and Ms. Megan for all you do for my little boy.  He loves you both and that thrills me to death.

Thank you Kristen and Pinterest for helping with this week.  The gifts were a hit things to both.

Derby Bunco

Last night was Derby bunco at Haven's.  It was so fun.  She really out-did herself with all the festive decorations.  The only thing missing were the horses!  The food was incredible, so much for trying to eat better...
Shelby was my partner and we burned up the table with sixes.  Steven's luck really rubbed off for the night. (For anyone who knows Steven, knows he has the BEST luck at gambling. I only do at a a craps table, and bunco obviously) Shelby and I didn't leave the head table the whole night.  We both were tied at the end with 15 winning games and 2 buncos each.  We had a roll off to determine the winner.  She rolled a 1 and I rolled a 2, so really I just barely won!
Back to the festiveness for the night we won horse ribbons and got cute little gifts.  Also, whoever got a bunco got to wear the homemade hat Haven made (the straw hat with horses glued around it).  We had such a blast.
I would like to add I think I have the BEST bunco group.  We have so much fun each month with the best conversations, as well.  Thank you girls for being the BEST!!

*Mary we have a lot to live up to for next month, haha.

Happy 40th Chi O

On Saturday Chi Omega celebrated it's 40th birthday on the APSU campus.  Sigma Kappa is an amazing chapter of Chi Omega.  I am so glad I can say I was one of them:)  Chi Omega was a great experience and I am so glad Lauren carried on the legacy.  It's definitely something we share and what I want our girls to be a part of one day (if we have any).  And for Austin, he has no choice but to marry a Chi O girl, haha.
One part of the reception, people shared experiences and memories from each decade.  It was so funny to hear about the 'old days' of Chi Omega.  They sound like the most fun!
Many of my closest friends to this day are Chi Omegas, even if we weren't in together.  The celebration was great!  It was nice to see people I haven't seen in years.  The way the chapter got started was so incredibly interesting to hear about.  The best part was having my sister on one side and my bestie on the other!
Funny moment of the day was when they announced for the committee to stand up and Fran thought they were asking for everyone to stand.  So funny...  This is why we get along so well, we both do funny stuff like this.

Easter Sunday

Easter was amazing this year.  Probably the BEST Easter I have ever had.  We got up and went to a great church service at Grace.  It was so humbling to have Steven, Austin, Lar, Mom, Dad, Tina, Stacy, Grant and Gina sitting by my side.  Sometimes in my everyday rush I totally forget how truly lucky I am to have all of these people in my life.
After church we all gathered at our house for Easter dinner. Granny, Pa, Gina, Terry, Dylan, Kristi and Phillip, all joined too.  A great meal with even better company.
Easter is a such a nice reminder of how much Jesus loved us.  Today I hope that everyone in my life knows how much I love them.  Thank you all for the BEST Easter ever.  I am so lucky to have each of you in my life and love all of you so very much!
