Happy Birthday!

Nine years ago today, I gave birth to my second child and my second daughter. Alora Diane joined us at 8:04 in the morning, the year was 2003.She was 7lbs, 10 oz and 20 inches long. I was a week from my 19th birthday and I was so overwhelmed with the thought of having #2.

There are things that people do not understand truly until they personally experience it and this my friends was one of them.

I never thought I could love another like I did my first child. I had always wondered how a human’s heart could carry that much love, I always wondered what it felt like to love something so unconditional and so evenly dispersed.

As a mother you get the joys of finding and experiencing that type of “LOVE”.  I thank God everyday for my 3 beautiful girls. I know now why he has blessed me with girls and not a boy.

To Alora,

I am so proud to be your mother! You are my peace keeper, my social butterfly; my tender heart, my dare devil. You are a beautiful, loving child and I can never express how much I love and are proud of you! I want you to know that you are going to be great at whatever God has planned for you and I am honored to be the one to guide you into the right direction! Happy Birthday!!! I LOVE YOU!

Fall Around Us

If anyone knows me they know that my favorite season is fall. September 23rd was officially the first day this year and it did not take me long to start making the house fall worthy!

I am big on center pieces for tables, coffee table, kitchen table, night stand tables, etc. So the first spot in my house was in fact my kitchen table!

I changed the seashells out to real mini pumpkins and my Frankie candle holders that I bought at bath and body works one year, Frankie will be placed to rest after Halloween but until then his home is one my table. J

I also have bought window clings and some mini pails at Target on year and brought them back out. We have lots of Jack’s, Frankie’s and witches caldrons around the house (perks of letting the kids help).

  4 windows are clings thus far and I am looking around town for some more. We always do the bathroom, kids room and my office with these lil guys and I just haven’t found some cute ones yet.
Here are some of my MUST haves for Halloween:
LOVE these types of baskets!
