Yesterday miss Emma experienced a milestone. She lost her first tooth!!

I love this pic because it shows my sweet girls outgoing personality. She wanted to make sure you could see that whole part where the tooth was.

This is a pic of her hangin out with momma at work.

Throw Back Thursday

I posted some pics today for #TBT or Throw Back Thursday. As I was looking at them, I didn't know if I wanted to post a lot because I was bigger than I am now at my wedding.  But then I had a reality check, yes I was bigger back then, but that day was one of the best days of my life. I got to marry my best friend, my rock, the one guy who can make me laugh and drive me crazy.  So in honor of that awesome man and our life together, here are some more pics of the wedding..

Noticing the Little Things...

Life has gotten so fast that sometimes we forget to notice the little things that make us smile..and make us think.

Then I saw something that this weekend made it all come rushing back to me. We were in McDonald's with Emma's Girl Scout troop eating lunch before going to the Zoo.  There was an older gentleman there with a seeing eye dog sitting and drinking his coffee.  In the rush of trying to keep an eye on 12 excited, giggling little girls, I looked over my shoulder to see the older man at the counter patiently waiting his turn for a refill.

Then something happened that was such a simple, but yet profound thing.  Another older man was standing in line as well. Instead of going about his turn, he turned to the blind man and asked him if he needed a refill and how his day was going. He gently put his hand on his shoulder to guide him toward the counter and they made small talk.

Yes it was a simple act of kindness that some people may not have noticed. I smiled and teared up because in this world where you hear only about the bad things, why doesn't anyone ever tell you about simple acts of kindness in this world that brightens one persons day?

What simple gesture of kindness could you make to someone today?

Making the coffee for your spouse..

Smiling at a stranger...

Helping the frazzled mother behind you in line by making faces at her baby so she can load the counter with her items..(I have been both the frazzled mother and the one making faces)

Picking up something that someone has dropped...and giving it back to them...

Helping some teenagers out by working on their truck as they stop for help on your street...

Simple random acts of kindness....what could this world be if we had more people that would do this?

On the go!

Our weekend was a fast and furious blur. I'm looking forward to a 4 day weekend this week, and only a 3 day work week, whoop, whoop!!

Friday I took Miss Emma to get a pedicure, her first ever real one at a nail salon. It was so much fun!!

We both got pampered in style. 

Then we went out to a friends house and had hot dogs, and hung out. It was a great Friday night!

Saturday Emma, my mom, and I went on a Girl Scout trip to the zoo. We had a blast!

We came home and went out to visit some family and had steaks that were awesome! 
Sunday was bad because I came down with the stomach bug my kids had been sick with. I spent most of the day in bed or on the couch. 

Hope everyone has a blessed week!

It's a Friday!!

Thank God for another day!!

This week has flown by. It's been such fun!

Sunday I went with some of my friends I don't get to see a lot to Painting With a Twist. We had a blast!! I absolutely loved it. 

Monday was spent in a not so fun way cuddling my boy since he had a stomach bug. So we unexpectedly had a day with not much to do. Although later on dad took over and I took Emma to a picnic for the Girl Scouts and tie dying shirts to wear to the Zoo field trip on Saturday. 

We had a low key week trying to get over the stomach bug. Luckily he was feeling better so we could go to Emma's first T-ball scrimmage. Go Broncos!!

Looking forward to taking my girl to the zoo tomorrow. And hopefully getting back in time to see some family. 

Have a blessed weekend!
