Long Time No See

It’s been so long that I don’t even know where to begin. Life is so hectic these days. After working all day, all I want to do is spend time with my sweet baby, do the necessary chores each night, and collapse. Blogging crosses my mind nearly every day, but I just can’t muster up the energy to put together a post that would make any sense at all.

Maybe over this little Thanksgiving break I can catch you up a little. I want to blog so bad, and maybe one day I will get to a point where I can do it more often. Right now though, it’s hit or miss. However, I know I’m not the only one in this stage of life. When I first started blogging and following other bloggers, we were all blogging machines. Now, we are all at the same point in our lives and so are the blogs. Funny how things happen like that!

I really do have so much to share! Ugh! I hate I’m so behind. After all, this is my way of looking back at some wonderful memories.

Since it is Thanksgiving, I thought it was only right to share what I am thankful for, especially since I didn’t participate in the daily posts that everyone on Facebook was doing.

So, here it goes!


The biggest blessing that I have had this year is becoming a mama! My sweet Landry is growing every day, and he is the best thing to wake up to in the morning and the best thing to come home to in the afternoon. He is my heart, and I had no idea how much love I could have for such a wonderful little person.




My husband is my rock. He loves me unconditionally, keeps me strong, helps me make difficult decisions, and is a wonderful father to Landry. He’s definitely my other half that I couldn’t live without. He is an amazing provider and works so hard to make sure Landry and I have all that we want. For him, I am very thankful!



I am thankful for family. Between my family and Colby’s, we have more than enough family to go around and more than enough people to love us and Landry.



I am thankful for my job and all the craziness that comes with it. Seeing my kids learn, enjoy learning, and having fun are just a few of the blessings that come with it. Having this job also supplies us with an income and built in time off to spend with my baby. It’s more than many have and for that I am most thankful.


A home of our own.

It’s more than I thought I would ever have by the age of 25. It’s a forever home that I look forward to making memories in, renovating to make it fit us better, and just enjoying.


And now the list will go by fast….


Zeb. A friend. A constant barker. A protector. A fast runner. A future pal to Landry.



Sweet potato pies. Oh how I love making the sweet potato pies that was the recipe of my Paw Paw’s. It’s like we have a little bit of him with us every time we take a bite.


Nice neighbors. It’s nice to know you have neighbors that look out for you, your home, and are truly nice people. It’s been a nice change from before.


Friends. They have been so kind to us this past year as we prepared for Landry. They blessed us with an unimaginable amount of gifts that we are truly grateful for. I know our baby will have lots of people to look out for him as he grows up.


Wonderful nurses. I’ve been in the hospital more than I would like this year. Luckily, I have had the MOST AMAZING NURSES!!! To be specific, I’m thankful for my nurses at DWM…Jessica, Heather, Tiffany, and Kathy; I’m also thankful for my wonderful delivery nurses Jeana & Jeanette! YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME!


A small town. I love our town and all of the lovely changes that are being made to make it a town that people will take pride in again. Support your small businesses, people! They’re what keep this town going. Attend events around town, so they will continue to be done!


Changing leaves. The colors are gorgeous! God’s wonderful creation right before our eyes.


Colby’s lawn business and all of his loyal customers! We appreciate your business. It’s a great provided for our family.


Christmas movies. Ahhh….I just can’t wait for a little of the Griswalds and the Grinch. Christmas classics at their best.


My phone. It lets me capture those special moments wherever I am!



Little Einsteins =) I can now cook supper at night thanks to them!


Blogging {even though I’m struggling with that right now}. It’s my creative outlet that allows me to share things with you all and receive encouragement when I need it most. Thanks!






Last but certainly not least, I am thankful for our faith. What would the holidays be if we didn’t thank the One that has provided us with all of these wonderful blessings? Be sure to thank the Lord for all he has done for you and not just turn to him when times get tough.

I hope each and every one of you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and express how thankful you are for all of the blessings in your life! I stopped at twenty because I feel sure someone is moving around in this crib, but I am blessed far beyond this list.

From our family to yours, HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!
