It's Game Day!!


Wednesday, June 26, 2013


I have definitely become addicted to some shows lately! I mean when your sitting and feeding a baby you have lots of time for TV! 

My first show is Big Brother I'm so excited for the new season and I can't wait to see what all is in store.

My top favorite show right now is Pretty Wicked Moms! I can't get enough of it, an hour a week is just not long enough! I'm super addicted and just love watching the drama and craziness of the show. You should totally watch it if you haven't yet!

I'm loving the DVR so I can record and watch my shows when I'm not so busy with Miss Emmalyn! What shows are you watching?

Emmalyn's Birth Story

I am just finally getting around to blogging about this! Emmalyn decided to surprise us with her early arrival on Monday, May 6, 2013. Sunday I woke up and was having some major pain so instead of going to church I went to the hospital to be checked out. Since I was having contractions they decided to give me a shot and some pain medicine to stop them since I was only at 36 weeks. I was sent home and laid down to get some rest. At 7 that evening I woke back up and was still having contractions and in horrible pain so we headed back to the hospital. This time they decided to keep me to monitor me and run some tests. The next morning they decided that I could be having appendicitis so I was sent for an mri. Thankfully I didn't have appendicitis but because I was in so much pain and not getting any relief they decided to induce me. Emmalyn Joy made her arrival at 8:06 pm weighing 5 pounds and 5 ounces and 19 1/4 inches long. Thankfully she was perfectly healthy and everything was fine. 

First family picture together!

Daddy holding her for the first time! 

We are absolutely over the moon in love with her and she is such a good baby. I couldn't be happier!

My First Mother's Day!!

I unexpectedly got to celebrate my first Mother's Day and it was also Emmalyn's first time to go to church! I had a wonderful day! We went to church where I was given 2 roses and my Hubby also gave me a card! After church we went to eat lunch at my aunt's house and then we headed home. I took a nap and relaxed the rest of the day! I already enjoy being a mother and can't wait for many more Mother's days to come!

First Baby Shower!


I had my first baby shower on April 20, 2013! It was given by one of my best friends Emily and was a small shower with mainly friends. I really enjoyed my shower and am so blessed to have such wonderful friends and family. Emmalyn got some cute stuff and also some things we are going to be needing.

Easter 2013

Easter did not turn out like I expected it too! My day started off with the news of a horrible accident at my Husband's work. As I was getting ready for church I read about it on a radio station page on Facebook. I immediately thought that even though the station made it sound like it was a small accident I was glad that my Husband was working nights and already home in bed. So I continued getting ready for church. As I was just about to leave Heath received a phone call and it woke him up. The accident was much worse then the station made it sound, one person had been killed and several were injured. Heath didn't get to go into work that night because they didn't want anyone in the plant. I'm so thankful he wasn't there when the accident happened! 

We had a wonderful church service and then a wonderful lunch with family. 

Me and my Momma! Easter 2013!

I am looking forward to this week! We have an appointment for a 3D Ultrasound on Wednesday and I can't wait! I hope you all enjoy your week!

Painting for A Cause

My Mom and I went and painted at a paint bar for a fundraiser! We have been before and painted Razorbacks but this time we painted crosses! 

It's always fun and I love going even though I'm not a terrific painter! HEHE!

I painted this for Emmalyn's room! I can't wait to see it hanging in her room! I'm going to add some bling to it before it's completely finished! The fundraiser was for a group from our church that is going to Juarez, Mexico in a few weeks! I really wanted to go but being pregnant I couldn't. Oh well, maybe I will get to go on the next mission trip!  Please pray for them as they travel and as they work in the city!

It was so rewarding and so much fun. We packed over 34,000 meals and I already can't wait to do it again next year! Here are some fun pictures from the night!

Packing away!

Meals we packed! 

 Our church group!

Monday Madness

It's another rainy day here in Arkansas and I woke up feeling a little yucky!

However, my Hubby brightened my day by sending me these beautiful flowers! Yellow roses are my favorite! He is definitely the best! 

The weekend was pretty good, I participated in this great event Friday night there is more to come on this event! 

Saturday my Mom came and helped me work some on Emmalyn's room. Sunday was of course church and I went with the bestie Emily to a bridal fair that afternoon. We had a lot of fun picking out stuff for their wedding. 

Today seems to be the only free day I have until Friday, it seems like it's going to be a busy week. Although it sure makes the week go by faster when it is!

It's Wednesday...

It sure is a yucky day and doesn't help with my Spring fever! It has been rainy, icy, snowy all day. Thankfully, the roads here aren't bad yet. So I've spent the day being lazy even though I have so much I need to do. If you didn't notice I changed the background on my blog and I absolutely love it! I would however like to change my header and I'm not sure how, any tips are welcome! 

I have been reading these books and I love them! I'm on the third one and really enjoying them. They have movies too which I plan to watch when I finish the books. 

I'm really hoping tomorrow is not snowy/icy so I can get out and do some things! I am getting tired of being stuck inside! Hope you all are enjoying your day!

Monday Randoms

It's a boring rainy day here so I've been catching up on blogs although I should be cleaning the house ;) I am so tired of the cold weather which means I definitely have spring fever! Any one else feel the same way?

I was sad to hear of Mindy McCready's death last night! I pray for her family during this difficult time. 

In other news, I officially can't wear my jeans anymore. I guess I shouldn't complain much since I'm 25 weeks pregnant and just now can't wear my jeans. It looks like I'll be making a shopping trip soon! I'm looking forward to my doctor appointment next week! I'll try to get a new bump picture up soon!

I have been going to the gym and using the treadmill to get my walking in! It gives me more energy when I walk and can get some exercise. I've also been reading a lot lately, got any good books to read?

I don't really have much more to talk about so I guess that's all for now! I hope you all enjoy your week and maybe I'll be more exciting next time! HA!

Weekend Recap!

Our weekend started off with playing games with my parents on Friday night. Saturday I went and registered for Miss Emmalyn. That night we went out to eat with friends and then played games. Today, the Hubby left to go back off to work so I have spent most of the day catching up on my TV shows. I gotta say that The Bachelor is not very exciting this time. I don't know they just kind of all get on my nerves. I have a busy week ahead it looks like so hopefully I'll have more to blog about and time to blog. I hope you all have a wonderful week!

Hi My Name Is......

Emmalyn Joy!

I am absolutely in love with our baby girl's name. We had another doctor appointment today and everything looked great. We go back February 28th and after that my appointments will be every 2 weeks! She got this adorable piggy bank from her Uncle Jody, Aunt Cassidy, and Cousin Evie! I love it and can't wait till it's in her room! I have already bought a couple of dresses for her and I'll be sure to post pictures of them soon! I am really enjoying making bows and buying cute clothes!

Just Hanging Around.....

We haven't been up to much lately which is why I haven't blogged. The Hubby has been working on building model cars and I've been making hair bows for our little miss. 

First one I made!

 Second one I've made!

Stay tuned this week I will announce what Little Miss' name is! I turned 25 last week and we had friends over to play games Saturday night to celebrate! I always enjoy having our friends over. My bestie Emily gave me a gift card to Target for my birthday so I picked this up....

I can't wait to try it out! I have the worlds worst straight hair. It only curls good with a chi which I have no clue how to use to curl my hair so I'm hoping this will work!

We go to the Doctor tomorrow to check on little miss. I have a weakness for these cheese sticks from our pizza place! I just can't get enough of them! 

I hope you all are doing great! Maybe we will be a little more exciting next time! :)
