Thoughts for Tuesday.

Okay, my brain is too jumbled and overcrowded to come up with a sensible blog post today, so I thought I would spew out some of what is swirling around in there to make some room!

* We got home late Sunday night from a long weekend in Nashville, TN to visit family. We drove through tumultuous storms the entire way back (10 hours) and were absolutely exhausted when we finally pulled into our home sweet home. When I eagerly tore the sheets back to jump into my bed, I was greeted with a little toy snake nestled near my pillow. I may or may not have screamed and ran in place for a solid two minutes. Thanks, Weebs. I really appreciate it.

* Nashville is home to several awesome peeps who read my blog! Shout out to the Nashville crowd! Thanks for reading! And a special shout out to Carrie and Katie who have given me the name "GLHDub". You girls are hilarious! :)

* Another special shout out goes to Elmo, Buzz, Woody and Rapunzel for making our long, long drive more bearable for little Levi.

* When I think about this month and the c-r-a-z-i-n-e-s-s of it, I want to run into a corner and hide out until June. Though each thing is super exciting, it's also going to be insanely busy and hectic. This is by far, the biggest month of the year for our little family!

* I still have my Easter decorations out. The bunnies that once made me happy are now making me mad.

* I wish the house would clean itself. I have no time for the attention that it needs.

* The Bible application on my phone has really come in handy for me, lately. Especially since I've been lacking patience over the past couple of weeks and have had to immerse myself in the Word, even when I wasn't near a Bible. Love that app!

* When I heard of the "emergency speech on national security" that the president was going to give Sunday night, my heart dropped into the pit of my stomach and I contemplated uprooting my family and moving to England. That way, I would be out of the US and closer to William and Kate, so my stalking would be much easier.

* I was relieved beyond belief to hear the outcome of the emergency speech ... but a little sad that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were no longer going to be my next door neighbors. Um, I love them.

* Remember how we are creating Levi's Big Boy Room? Well, we've been working on it for like a month now and it's still not finished. Everything has finally arrived (we were waiting on some pictures), and it's finally coming together. I am still in denial about taking him out of his crib, though. Would it be weird for him to sleep in his crib til he's 13?

* Levi is 23 months old. I'M BAWLING.

* T minus TEN days until Husby walks across the stage and BECOMES A PHYSICIAN.

* Yesterday was May 1 and it was 53 degrees outside. Wild, weird and awesome.
I am a modern day homemaker with a passion for family, cooking, celebrating, decorating, travel, and memory making! The Lord has blessed me with the desires of my heart in my husband and our two sons. We recently built our dream home and cultivating a loving and happy haven for my family is where I find so much joy.


  1. So many exciting things happening to you/your family!!
    I'm so glad for you!!
    Laughed out loud reading about the snake!

  2. The UK and europe are under constant terrorist threat. You are far safer where you are. Also congrats to your husby!

    p.s. snake toy...omg...

  3. Glad you made it home safe! Long trips are brutal. From VA to OK was about 20 hours! I can't imagine doing it with a child...well, I kind a do...I had a husband and 3 dogs with me :-)

    Congrats to you and D!!!

  4. Thanks for the shout out!! I feel so cool :)

  5. Oh, goodness! You have your hands full!!! I'll be praying for rest, peace, perseverance, a clean house, and some british neighbors ;)

  6. I'm glad you all made it home safely! What a scary drive! I can't wait to see pictures of Levi's new room.

  7. I'll join in Britian . . . we can stalk together. Okay that was creepy. Congratulations on all the great things in your life. And I have to tell you that I found the third birthday harder than the second, and I'm pretty sure on my son's fourth birthday, I'll just crawl in a hole. Okay, that wasn't real encouraging now was it?

  8. I am so sorry that you were driving in all that junk! It was CRAZY here in Tennessee, and my parents drove back from Riggins' bday party on Sunday and said that it was bad all the way through Arkansas. I'm sure y'all were exhausted!

    P.S. there's no way Levi is turning two. No. Way!

  9. Congrats to your husband. I finished nursing school this week and become an RN. Its an AMAZING feeling to have accomplished something you've worked so hard for. :)

    Cabin Fever in Vermont

  10. I bet Carrie and Katie are freaking out!!!! LOL

  11. Crazy few days! I sure do love hearing about it. :) So excited that husband is going to be graduating! What fun.

  12. I'm glad you all made it home safe! So funny about the snake in your bed. That has happened to me too (gotta love little boys-ha ha)
    I LOVE William and Kate! I thought their wedding was perfect! Congrats to you and your hubby on him becoming a doctor!

  13. So excited for Darin (and you!) as he makes this big step!!!

  14. Congrats to your hubby and family on his graduation! I can't imagine how excited you all are!!!

  15. Wow! So much excitement in your neck of the woods! And 10 days?! Eek!! I bet you all are silly with excitement! I'm super impressed that you make a 10 hour road trip with a little one sound like a piece of cake. And I love the Bible app, too! I'm always pulling it up for a quick Scripture fix (or a long one, as the case may be)!

  16. I absolutely love brain dumps like this! Sometimes they're the best blogs ever. Btw, you're not alone in your stalking of the new Duke and Duchess of Cambridge =)

  17. My sister and I are equally enamored with Kate. We can't get enough!
