Where I'm At... (today anyway...)

So, for grad, we got my sister in law this book that is full of lists you fill out about yourself. Sort of a biography... (autobiography...?) Anyway, I loved the idea and it got me thinking about my lists of faves. Since I use this as sort of an unofficial journal sometimes, I am gonna put down a small list of my faves right now. (Keep in mind this is a completely superficial list. I am in no way going deep or meaningful here.)

*Shreddies. I go through the weirdest food phases, and Shreddies are my go-to right now.

*People magazine. No phase- I've read it every single week for pretty much the past five years.

*Forever 21. Pretty much everything I own is from there. Its cheap. Its cute. And the shipping is free if you spend over 75 dollars. What more can you ask for?

*Perfume. I have specific faves, but I have a collection of like twenty bottles in my bathroom. I lovelovelove smelling nice things- and its nice when I'm one of those things.

*New clothes for my girls. I get such a weird rush when I get them something cute- I already plan the next photoshoot that we'll take in them.

*Photoshoots. I am definitely addicted. Mandy started me on them and now that Kel is taking pics I am a lost cause. There ain't no going back.

*No-Bake Cookies. Also known as Haystacks, Cowpies...(eww!) and Macaroon Cookies. Yum!

*Anthropologie. I cannot afford a dang thing, but it is the first thing I have on my "when I win the lottery "list.

*Phantom of the Opera. The music, the movie... the play- even though I haven't seen it- YET. Even the sequel... k, the sequel's music anyway. Best part? Grace is just as addicted.

*The Jasmine Room. I'm so happy I have discovered this little gem!

*The last photoshoot Kel and I did. I am only gonna post one of the pics, because I put the album on fb, but honestly... I adore it so much!

There are so many more things, but those are my start. Everyone should take the time to do this at some point or another. Its kinda fun to look back and see what has changed.

Its what I'm here for...

So, Mother's Day.
I know- its passed. But I have been so busy and am now just getting to it...

I am so thankful to be a mommy. I look back at the times before and I wonder how I didn't realize I was missing something. I love being a mom to my girls more than anything. I am so blessed that Heavenly Father let me have these two little princesses. I am so blessed that they chose me. I sometimes wonder what I did to make them want me out of all the other mommys. I try, every day, to do all I can to prove myself worthy of the honor.

Heres what I know- I have the best little family ever, I love them more than anything in the world. I would do anything for them and I am grateful for them every single day.

Also, I totally love my mom. She pretty much rocks my socks.
