In love...

Yes...Auntie D is in love again....with this sweet face! Piper well....just PRECIOUS! :) I left the house around 7:30 this morning and headed to Columbia to the hospital....I couldn't get there fast enough! I had tried and tried to get Wednesday off at work and thankfully God knew she wasn't going to arrive on Wed and I would have missed out on meeting her! She arrived early this morning and I actually got to meet her before my sister and little "I" and...what was even I was there when the two cousins met for the first time. What a blessing! God knew I wanted to be there...and I wouldn't have traded the moment for ANYTHING!

Here are a few more pics of the day...I only have like a hundred! I am tired...but it was worth EVERY MINUTE to snuggle with her!! Bare with me you all....LOTS of pics posted!

At this point...we have a red head!

No baby yet

That is the news here this morning. Darn it! Oh well...maybe Baby Girl is just waiting for Auntie D to arrive tomorrow morning! Ha! I hope it doesn't take that long!

My SIL's water broke around 7:15 this morning, however she is dilated to a 1 and 75% we'll see how this goes. I can hardly wait!!

I am loving the weather this week! It has DEFINITELY turned to fall around here! I heard on the news last night that the trees will be turning colors by next weekend. Can't wait!

I have been SUPER busy with Thirty-One Gifts. I can't hardly contain my excitement at times!!! I truly feel God has his hand on this and am excited to see his blessings and where he is taking me. My team is growing and I have 4 new recruits just this week! My goal is to be Director by the first of next we'll see what happens!! I also have 5 parties booked in October. I have 2 openings if you are interested...let me know!

My goal this weekend is to play some golf with my Hubs and get my office is a HOT MESS! I think I should show you before and is that CRAZY!

Running is still going good. Just a few more weeks and our 5K will be here! I am thinking of attempting a 10K next spring....WHAT!? Yes..I did say that...we'll see how courageous I get! ha!

Hoping you have a wonderful day! The sun is shining and God has blessed us with another amazing day!

Wordless Wednesday...

Our Family Room/Living Room

So I participated in this last year and since our family room has changed since last year. I thought I would show you all some updated pictures of what it looks like as of this morning. I am a little this was suppose to be for Friday!

I just love checking out all the different living rooms on Kelly's is fun to see inside everyones homes and check out the way you all live. So here is ours....

I was really hesitant on getting a sectional. For some reason I have always had it in my head that I don't like them....WELL...I was wrong! I LOVE IT! Both Hubs and I can fit on it and lay on it at the same time....the best purchase we have made in a long time!!

I was also hesitant with carpet on carpet....but it is nice to have and adds to the room. Now if I could just find some textured pillows for the sofa. I am in the hunt!

Thanks for stopping by! I can't wait to check all of yours out!!

Loving Fall Decor

While the Hubby was away this weekend....I decided to get all the fall decor items out! I did run out on Saturday and find a few more items...just had to share a few with you.

You can barely see the little critters that I have on the mantel....I think I showed them to you last fall when I got them on clearance at Hallmark. The orange pumpkin on the right I found at TJMaxx for $10.00!

I found Spooky and Boo at a store off of our downtown is a consignment shop...and I thought they would go great on both sides of our tv!! Then I went to another store on the square that had the candy corn twig wraps and I fell in love! They had them wrapped on the top of pumpkins...which was really cute! But then I put the two items together...and love them like this! :)

Bring on FALL!

A Friday in Jamesport

Today I met my three best friends from college for a fun girls day! It only took us a few months to find a date that worked for us all! ha!

It was great spending times with these ladies! We headed to Jamesport, MO (an Amish community) to do some shopping and have some lunch. Despite the cool and dreary weather we all had a great time together!

We bought some yummy breads, pies and more! I am saving the pie for tomorrow evening when my parents arrive. But I did end up having a piece of the jalapeno cheese bread we bought as well as one chocolate crinkle cookie. SO SO GOOD!

We also had a WONDERFUL and FILLING lunch at the Country Cupboard Restaurant. I was so excited about our meal that I had to take pictures of it! Check out this homemade meal...CHICKEN FRIED STEAK!

Oh and you better believe I saved room for dessert! Banana Cream Pie!

Oh goodness were we all full afterwards!  It was so good to hang out with these girls! Just what I was needing today...a little "girl" time. :)  Thanks ladies!! I had a wonderful time catching up with you all! 

We got home this afternoon just in time for the rain to begin.  I did get outside this evening with my neighbor and got a short run in during a light rain...but then the thunder and lightening we called it worked it off a little.

Hubby is off on his "guy dirt bike trip". So it is just me and Bella hanging out this evening.....we have been watching Say Yes to the Dress and listening to the Thunderstorms. 

Hoping to get some fall decor out tomorrow! My Mom and Dad are also coming to spend the night with me tomorrow evening! I can't wait to hang out with them too!

I love a rainy night

I do! It has been raining/misting since early afternoon. It has cooled down quite a bit and I have my FAVORITE candle burning....I ordered it online last year...or wait....maybe it was the first year we moved here. Anyways....I can remember my MIL talking about how good it smelled. Yes..must have been two years has lasted me this long and smells SO GOOD!

Wish I could remember what store I bought it from. I am thinking Piper Classics...but I could be wrong.

Anywho...glad I got that all figured out?  The house smells AMAZING (singing in my amazing tune). lol!

We had soup for dinner....Hub's is leaving on a dirt bike trip tomorrow and I am hanging out at home for the weekend. I do have something special planned for tomorrow...but will email about that tomorrow night after my run!

Oh yes...took the night off tonight....just didn't feel like raining...been watching the FOOTBALL GAME! WOO HOO! So happy fall is almost here! I am putting out my decor this weekend. I refuse to wait any longer! Watch will be on there way soon!

OH and an another exciting thing that happened open house shipment for 31 shipped TODAY! I had to wait on a few outside orders...which delayed me submitting the order...but they did great at turning it right around. I can't wait to see what all everyone ordered!  Will share pics definitely on that too!

Have a great Friday!!! :)

Day 2

of running with a partner. I like it. It makes the time go faster and we both encourage one another to finish.  Before you know it we will be all over the subdivision. However, for now, we will continue to make it around the block...well kind of a matter how many times we go by and get strange looks from the neighbors....(uh...yes we have been by before...and yes we are still huffing and puffing). Ha!

Just a little over a month till the 5k! We have also partnered with our husbands and are cutting down on the eating....and it is 9:30 and I am hungry!  I must say it is nice to have someone who is going to hold me accountable...cause honestly...if I wasn't going to meet her (Jam) then I wouldn't be running in the evenings.  FOR SURE!

Ok..time to try and go to sleep my is to a peaceful night of sleep!

Sneak Peak

First..I know! Two posts from me in one day! LOVED running with my neighbor this evening! Made the time go so much faster! Now I just have to adjust my diet!!

After I returned home, I had a video message from Corporate office of Thirty-One. They shared with us all the new products that will be featured in the Holiday Gift Guide that comes out October 1st!  All I can say is wow! This company continues to amaze me! Not one thing did I not love! However, two specific items caught my being the new skirt with RUFFLES!!!!! (I LOVE heart melted!) and the new pattern for the big utility tote. Great for Christmas!

I normally just blog about my Thirty-One business here. But tonight...I just had to share a sneak peak picture of just a few of the items that are going to be featured in our 2010 Holiday Gift guide!

See why I am excited!!! No wonder we keep growing so fast! I LOVE THIRTY-ONE GIFTS! :) And I am now in the Holiday mood! lol! Good night!

Broken glass

This weekend was quite the weekend in our house for broken items. A vase came crashing down off our fireplace on Saturday morning...and broke into several thousand pieces...later on that morning...our glass cylinder with potpourri came tumbling down...and broke into a MILLION pieces..UGH! I have never cleaned up so much glass! We have fixed the problem and replaced both pieces, but boy was it frustrating!

Last night, Hubby's eye glasses broke. So I headed to the eye doctor after work to have them fixed. Thankfully, they were able to. Then just a few minutes ago while I was loading the dishwasher, I broke one of our wine glasses.

SERIOUSLY!?? Enough with breaking things around here!

I am wondering if I should stay home this evening instead of going running with my neighbor. Oh well...I will get out and see how it goes. ha!

We have signed up to be in a 5K next month. So time for me to get my butt in gear. Not sure how I feel yet about running with someone else, but figure it could be a good thing. She will keep me motivated to doing it every night.

I must admit I would rather sit here on the comfy sofa and eat some ice cream! I tell and the sweets lately....I must have gained 10 lbs over the weekend! Time to work it all off! to run I go. Hope you all had great weekends!

That is pretty much all I did  yesterday. Was SNEEZE! I couldn't stop.....I hda taken a Claritan before heading to the golf course with my Hub's...and it did not help! Talk about frustrating!  I just kept sneezing and blowing my nose. I hate to say this...but I am ready for it to FREEZE! I just can't hardly take being outside sometimes...even if it is so nice!

Today, I am happy to report that I am MUCH better! I ran to Walgreens before church and picked up some Zyrtec. I took one as soon as I got to church and now I can breathe!!!  And NO SNEEZING! You all are happy to know all this...right?

Ha!  So we are headed back out to the golf course in a few hours. Hoping I can enjoy the day a little more than I did yesterday!

We have nothing planned for this weekend. Just hanging out at that it is a 3 day weekend! 

Hope you all are enjoying your weekends too!
