Fair Day

Last weekend, we went to the fair because it had finally died down enough that I wasn't ready to spank every child I saw walk by the crowd was bearable.

Ryanne loved the carousel and the airplane. I think she rode no less than 673 times. Or at least it felt that way while I watched her go around in circles over and over.

Then she discovered the ginormous slide. And Mommy needed to slide with her. Apparently she thought I needed the workout of climbing up the 3,000 stairs to the top over and over.

That night, we went to the rodeo and had a blast.

Ryanne loved watching the mutton busting, the calf scramble, and just the rodeo in general.

Hope y'all are having a great Friday!

Happy Fall Y'all!

Who is ready for fall? Just me? Surely not!

Isn't this a wonderful fall outfit? It makes me want to wear it today. Or Yesterday. Ha!

Oh . . . and this purse. I need it.
Love this fun print for the house!

And this is stunning, just gorgeous!

Basically, I'm counting the days until we can go to the pumpkin patch!

Hope y'all all have a great day and a good weekend! We're heading to the fair.

10 years later

10 years later, it's still fresh in my mind every instant of that day. Thankfully, I didn't know anyone who was killed or injured that day but I know so many did. 
It hits home so much more now that my husband is a firefighter and we have a daughter. I can't imagine being one of those 343 wives who found out their husbands would never come home again. Or that their kids would never see their fathers again. 

We'll never forget that day. 

God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. ~ Psalms 46:1-3, 10-11

Blog Love!

Part of the fun of blogging is meeting new friends, and reading new blogs. Over time you start to make really good friends, and the community you can build in the blogosphere is amazing.

Kelly is sharing some of her favorite blogs today, so I thought I would share with you guys some of my favorites. This is by no means a complete list, just a few I wanted to share in case you didn't know about them already and I'm going to work on a blog roll this weekend because it seriously needs to be updated. (click the pictures to take you to the blogs)

 Every blog needs a good blog design, right? This is my favorite blog designer, and she just happens to be one of my sweet friends on twitter as well. Jenn someone manages to juggle four adorable kiddos and her lovely design business. She has a great marriage Bible study cranking up on her personal blog in the coming days so go check it out.

Jenna is one of the sweetest bloggers I've ever "met" and I just love to read about her two sweet little boys. She has some pretty amazing recipes she shares frequently, too. Didn't you know the way to my heart is through my stomach? ; ) 

Jessica is one of my favorite bloggers. She is so crafty and sweet, and has great recipes, and even better style. She was one of the very first blogs I started reading on a regular basis and still love to read today.

Melissa of Superchikk is another one of my favorites. She is so genuine, but has such a fun and wonderful writing style. 

AP is one of my favorite reads because she is the perfect mix of blunt and sarcastic. It is always refreshing to read her take on things. 

Y'all? I could go on forever and ever about blogs I love, but I know you don't want to know every blog I read. These are just a few of my very favorite reads. Many of the blogs I read are for specific reasons, like we've become great friends on twitter (Ahem, Whitney and Niki) and others are there because they have cute ideas, or great pictures, or phenomenal recipes or I just like reading about there life, etc. This handful is just scratching the surface, but I wanted to share them because they are some of the best writers in my blog roll and always keep me coming back : )

Still Alive!

I'm still alive, just in case any of you were wondering. haha! It's hard to keep up with all of the things of normal life and deal with all of the paperwork and added doctor's appointments and therapy etc that are now a part of our life.

I'm so very thankful that Trey is as well as he is, but it is definitely a challenge to manage our new life.

Trey's biggest challenge right now is managing his pain and dealing with relearning his coordination skills. His fine motor skills were damaged, I think? Or at least he's having difficulty with them now, which creates problems and frustration for him. 

But in the same breath, we are so grateful that he can use his arms and legs that we will happily deal with the challenges of therapy. 

It's tough for him to not be able to play with Ryanne and pick her up and cuddle her. It's challenging for me to not have the help I used to have. It is very difficult to get everything done around the house on top of everything else, but we'll figure it out somehow.

And I just had to share some pictures for fun =)
