All About lil o' Me

Just call me your Budget Barista. I have been married for 20 years to the best man on this planet. He's sweet, caring, kind, but most of all he makes me laugh. We have Three adorable kids. A beautiful sweet pea girl, A 'superman' boy, and a love bug baby girl. We just love that we live where people vacation...where the ocean meets the sky. We live a wonderful life. I love my life and I thank Christ for giving it to me. Some random things about me are I enjoy baking, quilting, paper crafting, jewelry making, scrapbooking, and loving on my family. I am a Princess in the Kingdom of the King of Kings, diet coke drinking baby kisser. We are a homeschooling family but are part of a hybrid program where the children attend a 'classroom' 2 days a week and we do the rest at home. It's a blast. We also love to vacation and explore God's world around us. I think that's enough for now. :-)

This past weekend was CRAZY...good!

Sorry, I've been away this past weekend, but we were IN a wedding.  3 outa 5 of us. My hubby's sister got married to her beloved and it was beautiful.  We were aboard a yacht surrounded by all their friends and our families.  It was wonderful and For the most part it went good. The wedding was wonderful, tender, and sweet! It took us 4 hours to get ready and I thought we looked pretty good. :-) my oldest daughter was stunning and even got asked to dance by another little boy. As a mom this was scary! My baby just got asked to dance by a BOY!! WOW, that was a little nuts. I was happy when she said “no, she was too tired”. I don’t think my heart could have handled seeing her on the dance floor with a boy.

My lil man was the ring bearer and we had been praying he'd walk the isle, but he didn’t. That’s OK, we did our best. It was just too hard at the time that it was. My lil man and baby are normally in bed at 7pm and the wedding was at 7pm, but didn’t start til 7:20…so he was just too tired. Even tho We did give all the kids a late nap. He had done well all day, too. Around 5pm he would have been perfect!!!, but as the hours past he got more and more tired. We got there at 5pm and he was in such good spirits, then 6pm he was still good, but around 6:30 we went slowly into melt down and by 7:30 he was done! My oldest daughter was beautiful and even tried to help him down the isle, it was adorable! 

Aaahhhh memories!! Thankfully it was good for laughs and no one will forget how he just stood there and said “I Don’t Want To!!”. 

A special shout out to to my friend Heather for helping me with ideas for my make up and hair. She even showed me how to put on fake eyelashes!! 

There's nothing like a wedding to bring out those loving feelings in your own relationship. Sometimes I just am amazed at how much I love this man of mine. He's awesome!

Have a great and loving night!
