Weekends are a bit like rainbows; they look good from a distance but disappear when you get up close to them. ~John Shirley

This was a weekend that me and Harris both worked...well he worked more! I went to work for just a little bit! The weekends he works seem so boring! It really sucks not having him around... He is always at work. We hit a little rough patch this weekend trying to decide how he can be home more and not "work his life away" ...But you have to really balance things out! We forget how young we really are and to have nice things and keep up the things you have basically have to work for them! I may sound a little selfish when I say this but I just feel like it's unfair for him to have to work so much and to be soooo tired and to miss out on a lot of things that me and Peyton do, BUT then I have to smack myself and say Your TRUELY blessed!!! Because A: there are tons of people out there who do not have jobs that need them desperately and B: the men and women who are in the army who can't see their families for 6 months to a year or more! You really have to stop and think about these things...our conclusion to our conflict was we just need to suck it up and make the best out of the time we do have together and be thankful for our families,friends,jobs and each other! 

On a happier note.....I got to spend some time with some of my special girlfriends this weekend!  Friday night we went to dinner with The Whitworths...always a fun time with them :)   and Saturday after Harris got home ..he spent some time with Pea Pod (peyton) and I got to have sushi and drinks with Abby and Morgan...We did "Moss" (inside joke) our friend Ashley though lol... And sunday of course was alll about JESUS!!! Even though I was exhausted from taking some cold medicine I put on my happy face and heard a great message from Randy,had lunch with my lil family,a trip to Lowe's and to visit my sis and to end it a small cookout with Harris and Peyton..

Well its back to the working world..I pray this weekend will bring us closer as a family and to be more thankful for what we have! Lots to look forward to this week... My parents come home from there cruise,mothers day and Peytons dedication at church! Have a great monday YaLL!!!

A "lil bit" of Everything!

I never thought I would ever start a blog.....I just never knew what to write about or thought I had anything important to write about! Boy was I wrong!!  I love reading other Mommy's blogs, it's like reading a devotional always speaks to me or pertains to something going on in my life and I LOVE that! I love knowing that there are others out there that have silly things they get angry about,or have wild kids that pitch fits while there in a highchair or walker for no apparent reason (that would be my child). I know my blogs wont always be interesting to read but I would like to know that someone is getting something out of it one day.. So we will see where this goes.

So i guess I'll start with everything in a nutshell.... Peyton is walking! it started about a week ago and boy is she on the move. She is stubborn though,she won't walk when i try and show other people which is kind of embarrassing LOL! But she really is walking ...I promise! Hopefully i can catch a video of her and put it on here. She's a mess,but she is so sweet and sooo smart! I just love her more and more everyday! I want her to have everything she wants and for her just to be soo happy!

My sweet hubby! He works so hard...I wish he could spend more time at home with us,but he has to work. And he actually enjoys his work (some days) when he is home though he spends a lot of time with Peyton! She is such a daddy's girl...she loves him soo much! Last night he kept saying "I can't wait till she can say  I Love You to daddy" I laughed but deep down I thought sweet!  Me and Harris were just recently baptized was such a sweet experience! I felt so close to him....It made that bond in our marriage just a little bit tighter and also made our walk with God a little bit closer. We are really trying hard to build our relationship with God these days...we joined a great church and met lots of great people so far! Harris was recently in a bible study group with our pastor called Journey. They took a break for a while but I'm really hoping it starts back up soon. I was meeting on Wednesdays with some wonderful girls and we were reading a Beth Moore study..called Praying Gods Word,It was a little hard for me to make it every week considering Wednesdays were a day I worked,but when i did go I got so much out of listening to the other girls,they didn't make me feel intimidated or that they were better then me,It was such a good experience and I really hope I can go back when it starts again.

Well it's really hard not to go on and on with this but nap time is over,I can hear the squealing in the other room.
