I love this little goober more than anything else in the entire world!
He's the best thing ever.
Life has never been as amazing as it is now that I have him. 
I truly cannot express how much I am in love with this little man.
So thank you, Lord, for bring this child into my life.




We get a lot of that here in the PNW!
So we don't use umbrella's 
{if you are then you are definitely a tourist or haven't lived here very long}
We do like rain boots though. 
{And I really want a pair of hunter boots}
Once the rain starts here it pretty much doesn't stop for the next 8 or 9 months.
I used to hate it but you know what... 
I love where I live!
The PNW is absolutely beautiful and really wouldn't ever want to live anywhere else.
The rain started today... 
but I am ready!

what I love about fall



16 months

Today my son is 16 months.
I cannot seriously believe how fast time is flying by.
It makes me so sad to see him grow so fast,
but then again I love to see him learn and grow and become a little person each day!
He's the light of my life.
He brings more joy to my world than anyone.
He is my sunshine. 
He is the greatest thing to ever happen to me.
He's truly the greatest gift from God. 
I wake everyday thinking I couldn't love him anymore,
then I look at him and my heart wants to burst from all the love I feel for that little boy.
Knowing I am going to see his smile is what gets me up at 7am every morning,
when I'm just so tired that I want to sleep just a little longer.
I can't express in words how much I love this little boy. 
I've never smiled, laughed, cried, and been so happy in my entire life. 
So thank you for coming into my life, Zane, you are the most wonderful thing in the world!
Momma loves you sweet man. 



Wordless{ish} Wednesday

My son LOVES basketball! 
He'd play it for hours if we'd let him. 
He thinks it's the greatest thing in the world.
For only being 15 months he's extremely good at making baskets himself.
So when we took him to John's Incredible Pizza a few weeks ago...
All we did the whole time was play the basketball game
& he was in absolute heaven! 



Never Forget

We must never forget September 11, 2001!

I'm a bridesmaid for the 1st time

I am a going to be a bridesmaid for the first time next weekend on Saturday! 
One of my best friends, 
Lindsay is getting married and she asked me to be in her wedding. 
So I thought I'd do a little post on what I am going to be wearing for her big day.

Alfred Sung Dress in Majestic
B.P. Shoes in gold
Hair Pin in Gold
OPI for Sephora nail polish in Just a Little Dangerous
This is where I got my inspiration for my hair
{Miranda in the SATC movie for Carrie's wedding}
I am hoping it looks this good on me!
Hair trial - FRONT 
{right after my cut/color} 
sorry for the poor quality these were taken at night, in my bathroom with my phone!
Hair Trial - SIDE
Obviously going to use a different hairpin 
Hair Trial - BACK
{my other best friend, Tiffany is doing the bridesmaid's hair}
{I am going to have M.A.C do my makeup}
I don't know what the jewelry looks like because that is something the bride has made for us! 
Yes, she made it because she has an amazing little shop on ETSY called LJsLuxuries you should go check that out for sure! 
It's a little empty right now since she's going to be married in a little over a week. 
I know it's going to be beautiful though. 
I do know it's going to be gold & dark purple to match our dresses & shoes.
I really can't wait until her wedding it's going to be so much fun! 



Car organization

I really need to get my car organized now that I have a kid. 
There is ALWAYS trash on the floor, 
toys & binkies are everywhere, 
my cell phone is never where I can reach,
can't ever find any baby wipes when I need them, 
our blankets are always getting removed from the back of the car,
the sunscreen always ends up way under the seat, 
the glove compartment is so full that it can barely close it most of the time,
the sippy cup always ends up rolling around on the floor, 
and all the stuff I try to keep in the back always ends up getting taken out.

I am definitely frustrated so I went to my favorite place for inspiration...
Pinterest to get some ideas on how to fix all these problems!

So here is the inspiration that I found to organize my car!
I need to do this ASAP...
so I don't completely lose my mind.
