What I Wore Wednesday

Time to link up with the girls over at Lindsey's!  This is a blah week.  It has rained here for 40 days and 40 nights.  Okay maybe that's an exaggeration, but it feels like it!  I'm just ready for the sun to shine, and WARM weather!!  So here's the few outfits I have for ya...

Trying to channel my inner rocker chic....I believe it was a fail :(
Shirt: Target?
Jeans: American Eagle

Hat: Target
Shirt: Target
Cardigan: Old Navy
Jeggings: Levi's via Kohls
Flats: Target

Cardigan: Old Navy
Tank: Target
Jeggings: Levi's via Kohls
Sandals: Old Navy

That's all the outfits.  Sorry so few, but when it's rainy and gloomy I just want to stay in sweats and tees!

Here's one more picture of my baby, just because she's beautiful :)

Hope everyone is having a fabulous week...the weekend is so close I can taste it (and it's suppose to stop raining!  Cross your fingers!!).

Life of A Three Year Old

Just a quick post because the kids are waking, and they automatically assume I'm going to feed them...whatever :)

Yesterday Jax and Laney were outside playing.  I hear her start to cry, then here she comes running in the door.  Now you have to picture her....her hair is a total mess, half of her ponytail has fallen down, her nose is running (from the crying), her cheeks are red from the coolness, and her clothes look like she's had them on for 10 days!   This is what happens next...

Me: What's wrong?

Laney: My thing is broke!! (at least this is what I got through all the crying and DRAMA!)

Me: What are you talking about?

Laney:  My's won't work...

Me:  You wrecked your bike?

Laney:  NO!!!!  The thing I move when I wave to people.

Me:  What are you talking about?  side note: at this point she is BAWLING!  I'm pretty sure most was in frustration because her ignorant mother couldn't figure out what she was talking about! ha!

Laney: MY DINGER!  MY DINGER IS HANGING DOWN AND IT WON'T DING ANYMORE!!!!  (she screams this to me)

Me:  laughing uncontrollably, while crossing my legs so I don't pee my pants (that's what 2 kids will do to ya!)

Laney: MY DINGER IS BROKENNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Me:  hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

So in case you didn't figure it out, the bell on her bike had turned under the handlebars.  Poor kid couldn't "ding" at her brother!  Don't worry the dinger has since been fixed, and all is well in her three year old world again :)

Practice Makes Perfect

So I've been learning to use the "manual" setting on my camera.  The reason being is I'm dying to get one of these....

Canon EOS Rebel T3

I've got to save up my pennies to get it, but that's okay.  It gives me time to learn how to set up the settings (does that make sense?).  My photog friend Erica told me to practice, practice, practice.  So I have been!  And I am so dang tired of taking pictures of objects, and MOVING kids.  So I asked a friend if I could take some maternity pictures, just for some real practice.  She was game!  So yesterday afternoon I tested my skills.  I was pleasantly surprised with myself! ha!  Here are just a few of the finished product (and please critique away.  Any advice is greatly appreciated!)....

Okay, so that was more than a few!  But seriously who doesn't love lookin' at a glowing pregnant chick!!

And So It Begins...

the bleacher butt that is!  Today was Jax's first t-ball practice.  So that means the beginning of bleacher butt galore!  From now until he's out of school I will be sitting in bleachers somewhere, watching some sport.  I'm okay with it though!  As long as he's loving it, so will I!  And after today, he's in LOVE!  He talked about how many times he hit the ball, and how many times he threw the ball, and how fast his cleats made him run.  It made my heart melt, and so do his "fast" little cleats...just look at them, they are so stinkin' cute!!!

The games start in a few weeks, and it should be entertaining to say the least!  I will post "action" shots when the season starts.  I'm just hoping the action shots aren't of him playing in the dirt, or picking weeds!  ha!!  Until then I'm off to watch basketball...I mean Kentucky is in the Final Four BABY!!!  (that was my Dick Vitale impersonation in case you couldn't figure it out! ha)

Enjoy your weekend...or at least whats left of it :)
