The Kiddos

   This past Sunday we tried to do a mini photo shoot with the kids and failed. It's WAY too hot outside plus the sun was extremely bright which is why the kids are squinting in these pictures. Not only that but my son was not in the mood for pictures. "This isn't my thing", he said to be exact. Yup my SIX year old son said that! So these are the best shots we got. We have been wanting to take family pictures for the longest but it seems we will have to wait until it's a little less sauna like outside.

This Little Face

These little eyes round and bright
are more than just for sight
They see beyond, they look at me
remind me of the example I need to be

This little nose so much like mine
you're my child, it clearly defines 
The way it scrunches when you smile
is part of who you are, your own style

These little lips, so defined
look just like your dad's, they're one of a kind.
With little kisses you lift my heart
those little lips are a work of art

These little ears they not only hear
they listen to everything I fear
The times I yell, the times I shout
remind me I need to be careful when I freak out

This little face so perfectly round
teaches me so much I've found
Of how you look so much like me
yet you are unique, your own person to be.

The AS IS Home Tour Schedule

   There ya go! That is the schedule for next week. I usually don't blog on weekends but I plan to write up all of my posts this week and have them all scheduled to post on each day. I'm so excited! This is something I wouldn't normally do. I don't like people seeing the imperfections in my home but I think this will be a good thing. I hope you can all join me! Like I said you can link up finished rooms, unfinished rooms or even rooms in progress. I want to see it all! 

To RECAP from my first post. I will be sharing my home with you all next week AS IS. No room in my home is completely finished with the exception of the shared nursery and instead of waiting to finish each room I thought I would let you all tour our home NOW just as it is! There will be a link up at the end of each post so you can link up and share your home with me too! 


CAN'T WAIT! Help me spread the word and use this button on your page!
Specially if you plan on participating! :) THANKS!!

The AS IS Home Tour

 I LOVE touring other people's homes. Don't you? Wether it is through other people's blogs, pinterest, realty websites or in person there's just something about peeking into how other people live and decorate their homes that I find facinating! One of my most favorite apps on my phone is the Realtor one. I just love it! I love to see old homes remodeled and I love to imagine what I would do or how I would decorate a particular house if it were mine. 

Sad thing is sometimes it makes me feel crappy because my house doesn't look as nice or is as clean as most of the homes we see on pinterest and such. It has been EIGHT years since we've purchased this house and we are no where near finished with it. Not done with repairs, decorating or anything. On top of it our home is almost never completely clean. There's always a pile of something somewhere. I'm sure I'm not alone! 

So I thought I would let you all tour my home AS IS. Holes in the walls, piles everwhere, unfinished kitchen & all! Not only that I want to see your homes!! Let's all share our homes the way they are! Wether your home is perfectly clean & organized or cluttered & unfinished. Maybe this will motivate us to get things moving and then a year from now we can look back and see what has changed. 

Basically I will share a room or some rooms from my house each day and have a little linky party at the end of my post so you can link up and share your room/s too! I'll post more details next week on what rooms I will share on what days so we can all get our posts ready to share. You are also welcome to share rooms you have already finished and shared on your blog! 

So what do you say? Will you join me?
Tour begins the first week of August! (Monday August 5th to be exact)
More detailed info to come next week...

We're Back!

   Ok Technically we got back SUPER late last Sunday the 7th but I spent the ENTIRE week last week washing EVERYTHING! I am bearly starting to get back to my old routine and I thought I'd just stop by and update you all. We had a lovely time in Omaha. The weather over there is just PERFECT! I have a ton of pics I posted on my personal facebook but I'll share just this one here on my blog because I don't feel like uploading them all again on here! 
   Anywho, we were in Omaha for our Bi-annual church conference. The week went by SUPER fast! We had a great time, learned so much & met some wonderful people. Little Sarah ended up in the hospital one night because she was having trouble breathing but thankfully she is doing well and it was nothing serious. 
   We went to the zoo in Omaha! It was beautiful but we didn't get to see it all! I am missing the weather for sure. You could actually be outside and enjoy the zoo unlike here in TX where you step outside and you're already sweatin'. 

I will be blogging on and off from now until Josh goes back to school!
 (I can't believe it's almost 'BACK TO SCHOOL' time again!) 
Hope you are all having a lovely Summer!
