Own It!

I was reading Erika's blog today and it led me over to Christina's blog and I just had to join in on the fun! The "Own It" series is all about accepting the crazy things that you do. So here I am owning up to all my crazy.

1. I am terrified of birds. It all started about 3 years ago when Seth and I went to Chicago for a weekend trip to visit our friends Landon and Chelsie. When we were walking from our hotel to the metro station their were pigeons everywhere and every time that go close to me I would freak out a little.

Something about the idea of them touching me totally gives me the heebie jeebies. It has now become a source of a joke between my friends and me, and once I found a fake black bird in my refrigerator (and yes I screamed like a little girl).

2. I once cried and got VERY mad at Seth because he got me the wrong food from Subway. All I wanted was a nice Subway salad with all the fixings, and what I ended up with was a plain chicken breast sub with just lettuce and mayonnaise on it.

 To give full disclosure I had text Seth my order and he only received half of the message which led to the dreadful sandwich. I'm sure there were other factors that contributed to my emotional state, but I guess I do take my food pretty seriously ;).

3. I will let our house get really messy and at first it won't bother me. Eventually it will get so bad that I either have to go into "crazy cleaning mode", or avoid the house at all costs and put it off until later. I think this drives Seth crazy because he never knows exactly when I'm going to decide its time to be clean. What can I say it's one of my quirks ;).

4. I HATE mornings, and I'm usually not very nice during then either!  Just to explain to you how much I enjoy my sleep I have my morning schedule down to 20 minutes. I get out of bed at 8:00 a.m get dressed, do my hair and make up, brush my teeth and leave for work by 8:20 a.m. I REALLY want to change this and have even been reading articles like "How to Become a Morning Person"(so far it hasn't been working.)

This is truly the tip of the ice burg when it comes to my "crazy". Sometimes it's nice to just embrace the quirks about yourself!

Thankful Thursday!

Hello lovelies! I know It has been too long since we have done our Thankful Thursday link-up, but this week my bestie Maddie over at Miss Matilda May are back with lots of thankfulness. If you want to join us just grab the graphic and link back to one or both of us!

1) My Mommas Birthday Celebration

 Last Saturday we had a girls day (plus Easton) out to celebrate my wonderful Momma's birthday. We walked around The Mall and then ate lunch at Red Robins. We had such a fun time just being all together!
Love you Momma! very thankful for you!!

Warm Spring Nights

A couple weekends ago I spend Friday night at my sisters and I was so thankful for the beautiful weather! We started out the evening with some playing outside and swinging and then of course these divas wanted to do an impromptu photo shoot!

This defines their relationship a little too well ;)

there is so much sass in this picture!

 After the photo shoot we had a fire and ate some yummy s'mores! We were all trying to get the perfect "fire glow pic"

It appears Emree has a love hate relationship with marshmallows.

My Little Boomer is Okay!

Our sweet Boomer got neutered last Tuesday and everything seemed to go fine. On Sunday night we noticed she had a lot of redness and swelling and ended up taking her to the emergency vet. They told us that it was most likely just a bad reaction to her internal sutures and as long as she's not in pain she should be fine. She's been our normal little kitty since and the redness looks SO much better. We were pretty scared Sunday night and I'm so thankful our little furbaby is okay!!!

Klay's Birthday!

My Sweet nephew Klay celebrated his 4th Birthday on April 28th! He is so ornery and has the biggest personality! I love this little guy so much and I'm so thankful to be able to be called his Aunt Addie! Love you buddy :)

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a great day :)

Sandal Season

Hello Everyone! Well spring has finally sprung (for the most part anyway) and with the temperatures on the rise it is time to break out those sandals. There are SO many cute options out their and today I just wanted to share a few of my favorites.  Of course they are all from Target ;)

I think these sandals are super classy! I've been contemplating ordering them because they are dressy enough to wear to work, but also could be really casual. 

I am obsessed with the splash of gold on these sandals. They look so comfortable and could really dress up any outfit.

These sandals are perfect if you are looking for something with a heel. I think the bronze would be my top choice. 

I might just order myself a pair of each.... In every color ;) Thanks for stopping by!

Friday Favorites

It's Friday!!!! If you have been reading for awhile you know that Friday is the day for Friday Favorites. Today I'm linking up with Andrea, Erika, and Narci to share some of my favorite things

Favorite Verse:

This is one of my all time favorite verses, I am by nature an anxious person and I find my self constantly needing to be reminded of this powerful truth. The peace of god is such a powerful thing!

Favorite Purchase:

Before my trip to Florida I ordered this new swim suit:
Purchase top here.
Purchase here.
So when this bathing suit came in the mail (from Target of course), I tried it on and was pleasantly surprised at how well the top and bottoms matched, but a little disappointed because the top didn't fit quite how I wanted it to. I ordered a large and hoped that I could tie it tight enough in the back to make it work. After wearing it once at the pool on vacation I changed my mind and decided it was FAR too small. My sister Anna let me borrow on of her bathing suite tops that fit me great:

Long story short I told my sister Anna that she could have the top that doesn't fit me, and she said I could keep the top that doesn't fit her (how sisterly of us ;)). Any who this left me with a pair of bottoms that have no matching top!! And being the logical person that I am I knew I had to remedy that problem, and when swim wear is buy one get one 50% off you can't just buy one. I totally lucked out and both tops I got fit!! here they are:

This top is actually called "Women's D Cup Halter" I found that very promising.. You can purchase here.
Ordered this in an XL. You can purchase here.
Both these tops were big enough and very supportive! Also they both match my new bottoms I got. 

Favorite Little People:

Yesterday I posted about all my nieces and nephews. Not only am I very thankful for them, but they are definitely some of my favorite people! You can read about them here.

Favorite Book I'm Reading:

Click to Purchase
I'm almost finished reading True Believer by Nicholas Sparks and I would definitely recommend it! It's basically just a love story, but let's be honest who doesn't enjoy a good love story!

Favorite Picture:

Had an impromptu girls night with my Sister Amanda and 3 nieces on Wednesday night. Love these girls so much! (Emree didn't make it in the picture :P)

 Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!
