 Because you ALWAYS need a photo shoot when you find overalls at the consignment sale for $4. 









Love this little rambunctious monkey.  SO much it hurts.

I think I like it here.

Florida is treating us well.  I am pretty sure I'm likin' it.  And the weather is pretty much wonderful.  Although, I would like to remember what fall is like...oh well, it's funner to swim in December anyway, right?

 I did decorate the front porch and make pumpkin bread tonight.  If it doesn't feel like fall, it'll still look like it around here.  :)

I've slowly been putting things on the walls but still am not in love with my decorating skills.  I need my momma! (You hear that, ma!?)  I did make a mini-collage in W's room that I love.  See below:



We have unpacked the majority of our things, except for the third bedroom...that room shall be called "The West Wing" like in Beauty and the Beast.  No one is allowed to go in there. Maybe one day I will get brave and conquor it.

I've also been wanting to read a book book and have had a few friends reccomend Surprised by Motherhood by Lisa Jo Baker. I can't wait to read it.  And I picked up a Praise Baby CD for Winslow to listen to in the car. 
Besides being beach bums, we haven't done much around here!  I like it that way.  Maybe soon we will make some new friends and can have playdates. Hubby starts work on Monday and this momma can't be cooped up at home all day with a wild child. 
Hopefully I'll have some pics of our new place soon!

Until next time,



I'm alive!

Y'all. We've been without internet for 2 weeks now.. and it feels like years.  Can you say first world problems?

That's why I've not been updating you on our journey to the Sunshine state!  Don't worry, I'll fill you in ASAP.

We have internet now so be expecting a few updates soon.

In a nutshell, here's what has been going on:

-Moved to Florida and stayed in a hotel for six days.  (It STUNK.  Baby didn't sleep..we had a dog in the room, we were having to look for places to live with NO idea about the area).  Wasn't fun, but it was necessary.
-Finally found a cozy little place to live in a gated community with a heated pool.  Can you say swimming in December?  Heck yes.
-Been unpacking and unpacking like crazy.  The house is pretty much done except for our third bedroom which is full of boxes.  I hate unpacking.  Maybe I'll just donate the whole room to Goodwill.  We've already taken a truck load there once and it feels so good to downsize.  (You hear that, mom??!)  I haven't even missed our stuff.  We plan on downsizing even more too.  We moved from a 2200 sq foot home to less than 1200...so it was necessary.
 -Winslow is INTO everything.  He's walking/running all over the place. I can't keep up with him.
-Hubby starts his new job in 1.5 weeks.  So we still have a few days to explore, unpack, and take it easy.

That's us in a nutshell.

I promise to update more soon, now that we are back in the 21 century.



Here is Frankenstein in his skeleton jammies.  :)
