Goin to the chapel...

Yesterday we celebrated our 2 year wedding anniversary! What a full 2 years they have been! In the last 2 years I have gotten married, moved to NY, gotten pregnant, moved back to TX, had a baby and am now planning our next local move. I told Jeremy last night, no wonder I am tired!

Thinking back over the last 2 years I cannot imagine it any other way though! I have loved the adventure that we are on together and though at times it has been overwhelming God has taught us both so much. I am more in love today then ever and have a husband who loves me and spoils me in so many ways. How could I ask for more? We have a 6 1/2 month old baby girl who is our world and we both adore her more everyday! Truly, I am blessed!
Here is a walk down memory lane from my wedding day....

I loved everything about my wedding and would do it all the same again! It was such a fun day surrounded by friends and family. I was so blessed to have the wedding of my dreams! Here is to many, many more years to come!

I am hosting my first ever giveaway! I am excited to help a friend who is a stay-at-home-mom to get the word out about her adorable hand made items. She has a etsy site here that lists all her fun items.
These would make wonderful Christmas gifts, baby gifts or gifts for yourself! =) Who doesn't want a funky and fun flower to brighten up your fall wardrobe. I have to admit when Mae gave the flowers to use for this giveaway, I was tempted to keep them and say I didn't! I think I may be doing some ordering of my own soon. They are cute, afordable and if you are like me I am always more willing to spend the money to support a Mommy staying home with her baby! Oh and did I mention she does custom orders?

So how do you win these adorable bows you ask? Well check out Mae's etsy site and leave me a comment with which flower is your favorite. If you post a link on your blog or your facebook to my blog then you can leave a second comment telling me you did. This giveaway will stay open till Sunday night at midnight and monday morning I will announce the winner of 3 adorable flowers! Oh and did I tell you that the winner gets a flower for babe, baby and bride!

Ok now, hurry up and get to commenting and shopping!

White House

Before Jeremy and I got married he purchased this adorable white house that needed LOTS of work. His plan to fix it up and us live in, funny how God has a way of changing our plans! We ended up renting the house out and it has been a source of lots of stress for us both but more for him. It has been rented out for the last year but we had talked about selling the house and had put it up for sale by owner in the past and nothing. We put it up with a realtor last Wednesday and on Friday we got an offer for asking price! Needless to say we took it! God is so faithful, we are going to be able to walk away from this house free and clear! We had assumed we were going to take a loss on it, oh we of little faith! Isn't it amazing when God comes through on the things we don't even have the faith to pray for?

Thank you God for your amazing love for us. That your plans are so much better then what we could imagine! And I am SO grateful for that. Forgive me for my lack of faith. May YOU reveive ALL glory for this!

Happy Monday!

Ava’s world has forever changed! She has discovered food and crawling! Once she caught onto the crawling thing there was no stopping her. She loves it! I had slowly started giving her some food, our theory on baby food is that our food is what our babies will eat. Who wants to eat that bottled stuff anyway? Not me! It also keeps me eating fresh good meals if I have to share with her! I had been feeding her an egg yolk that was soft boiled and she loves it! Other then that she doesn’t really want anything to do with anything that has to be spoon fed to her. She wants to hold it and eat it by herself, I have had to take chunks of banana’s and many vegetables out of her mouth after she bit off more then she could handle. She has 2 teeth and thinks she can handle much more then she can!

What better place to eat avocados then in a sink bath? :-)

This process of feeding her has been a learning journey for me. It was so God because when I was trying to decide what to do and when to start a blog I often read posted on that exact subject! So ask and you shall receive right!
