Fun at the Mall

Just last week, we surprised Jessica (Braelyns birth mom) at her work! It was so, so fun to see her, and get to catch up a little bit! She is such an awesome girl, and we love her so much. Braelyn was super busy and just wanted to run around the whole time! Finally as we were going to our cars she warmed up a little to Jessica, and gave her "loves"....too cute! We LOVE you Jessica!!! :>
Braelyn's eyes are half closed, but this was best one we got!

And this, Ladies & Gentleman, is what Braelyn was doing the whole time! It's what she does best.......

Happy Birthday Britton!

On June 30th, by handsome man had a birthday!!! We are now the same age until October (yes, I am older than him, but just by a few months!)! I love him so much, and am so lucky that I have him for a husband....Your the Best B!!!! Braelyn helping unwrap presents...

4th of July AND Visit with Mamaw and Papaw

Happy Belated 4th of July to all! I hope it was a good, and safe one! We had a lot of fun because my mom and dad drove in from Texas, and got here on the 4th! It was so much fun having them for a few days, but it went by really fast! Here are a few pics of what we did!

Here is my yummy, homemade Texas Coconut Cake.....so festive, huh?! It was really fun to make!

Since we live just down the street from where the fireworks are set off, we had the best seats in the house....our front yard sitting in the bed of our truck! It was perfect, and the show was great!

Just before the fireworks started!
My dad surprised me, and brought me the electric guitar he'd given me awhile back along with: a new amp, microphone & stand, music stand, and a guitar strap!!!!! I was sooo surprised and blown away! I'm super excited to use all my new stuff...thanks Dad!

Gettin' hooked up.....

P.S. my dad had it signed my Scotty Moore...who is that you ask? He was Elvis Pressley's first guitarist!!!! Awesome!

My parents also brought along with them a lot of my old high school stuff. Here is Braelyn cheesin' it up in my Drill Team hat! Pretty cute!



She just loves putting on other people's shoes....

I'm not the only one who got hooked up on my parent's visit....Braelyn did too! They brought this play kitchen to her! Cool story....my dad built this years and years ago for my older sister for Christmas. Since she has all boys, it has been passed down to Braelyn. It is in such great condition after all these years!


She can't have a kitchen without all the goods though......

Thanks Mamaw and Papaw!

She LOVES it!
