Tell me MORE!

I have some winners to announce!!
You two ladies keep your eye out for an email from me about your burlap sign!

Otherwise, I'm linking up with Amy Lemons at Step into second grade for her linky!
I know you guys are on the edge of your seats for this one - you are DYING to know more about me! ;)
1. I'm the proud momma of two! But I bet you knew that already! Somehow they always sneak into my posts :)

This was during breakfast the other morning. I will have to say - both of my babies are INDEPENDENT! No help from momma, nosiree! So I end up with messes like this every. single. day! Have ya'll seen that ecard on pinterest?! "Cleaning while the kids are in the house is like brushing your teeth while eating oreos??" HAHA totally AGREE!!

2. This is one of my very favorite pictures with my hubby!
This was at his brother's wedding, we were both in the wedding! My sister-in-law and I are two peas in a pod! She's a teacher, too! This was 3 years ago.

Here's a picture of us two Thanksgivings ago - both pregnant!

3. My WHOLE family went to Texas A&M... I am a rebel and went to Tech! I wouldn't have changed it for the world! Although... because I was "raised" as an Aggie, I don't have the vehemence for them that most Raiders do. shhhhhhhh!
{my little sis and mom}

4. I L.O.V.E. the fall - Football and Halloween and pumpkins and spice tea and sweatshirts and OH the list goes on and on!! I make the hubby carve pumpkins every year. He secretly loves it :)

5. I am all about family! This is my family {sister missing} Dad, mom, brother, my Nana and Papa- they were both educators, too! Ignore me in this picture, I had Luke 2 days later and am HUGELY pregnant here! eeeeesh

6. My hubby SURPRISED me with my *dream* car last September!!! I had no. stinkin.' clue! He told me that we needed to get his brakes checked so we needed to stop by the dealership. I didn't think a thing about it! We drive up and park in front of {this beauty!} bow and all. I thought "aww someone is getting a gift!" and then he said "what's that??" I just looked and there WAS A TAG WITH MY NAME ON IT!! Shut the front door! He got major brownie points for this! :)

7. I make the turkey every year for Thanksgiving. This has become a tradition... I use the same recipe that I first tried 3 years ago. I pored over old magazines and articles and before I decided on one! It came out perfectly so I haven't changed a thing about it!

8. I don't like snow. At least not when I have to get out in it! If it's going to snow... I want it to be over Christmas break when I can snuggle by the fire and avoid it! This was Ella's reaction to her first snow - 2 1/2 years ago. I feel the SAME WAY! Oh, and in my part of Texas we usually get snow every year. It's not usually a lot - maybe just a few inches a couple of times in the winter. I seriously couldn't handle living anywhere MORE north than where I do now! boooo to the cold!

9. I'm not an animal person. Don't throw stones at me! I like them... from a distance. I just can't handle the fur. and dirt. and poop. No thank you! I've got people babies.. maybe some day I will desire to have an animal, but not any time soon!

10. I seem to have a talent at making bustier cakes. Bahaha! I know, it's a gem! I've made these cakes for every one of my friends' bachelorette parties. I know you're jealous! ;)

I could keep going, but I'll leave you wanting more, teehee! ;)
Have a fabulous day friends!


  1. I love reading more about all the people I have started stalking hehehe!! You should definitely share your recipe for the turkey. It looks delicious. I too love fall!! Everything about it! You look like you have such a sweet family and totally scored on the husband!! Haha that was an awesome gift. Dang, I'm hosting a bachelorette party this fast can you make that cake?? I'm not too far from you!

  2. Love the new car! Such a great surprise! And I hate snow if I have to go out in it too. It's very pretty from my couch! Unfortunately, I life in New England. We get a lot of snow!

  4. Wow, You have an amazing husband what a surprise. I loved the cake that you made for all your friends bachelorette parties too cute!

  5. I am not an animal person either, and my hubby and I were so afraid that our kids would beg us for some kind of furry pet that we decided to tell them that we were allergic so that we could avoid the discussion. (Probably not the BEST move as a parent, but we thought it might work...) Turns out, our oldest is PETRIFIED of any type of animal with fur! Loves learning about them, but hates being near them. Totally saved us!!! :)

  6. I am so glad I have found someone else who doesn't do animals! Me either! I cannot take the hair (or poop) in the house. :) I'm always scared to say that outloud in fear of being hated! :) Love the surprise from your hubby!
