My little girl!!

My little girl has her very first dance recital this Sunday! I'm so excited but I'm so nervous! She gets soo shy sometimes. I really don't know if she'll even dance but fingers crossed cause those costumes were spendy! I'm thinking about putting her into gymnastics this fall instead of back in dance. Does anyone have any experience with their younger kids in gymnastics? I took it when I was like 7-8 and as a shy kid I loved it!

65 Years

On Sunday we celebrated my husbands grandparents anniversary, 65 years of marriage. That is a long time! Adam and I only got married a year ago so it'd be incredible if we were alive for another 64 years but we'll give it a try.

For their anniversary the family got together and put together their new patio furniture and had a potluck bbq. This pregnant mama loves potlucks! Soo much yummy food.. Most of the rest of the weekend was spent with Adam working on his enclosed car trailer and race car and me hanging out with my mother in law, nephew and nieces. All in all it was a good weekend.
Sorry for the bad quality. They're pictures of pictures..

Hope everyone has a great week!!

Oh yes, my husband is awesome!

I just gotta brag about my husband a little today! My friend Heidi, who is also pregnant posted on facebook yesterday that she was craving beef jerky and she was so happy she almost cried when her husband brought some home for her! Of course, that post made me want beef jerky. I texted (or is it just text?) Adam and told him I was wanting some. He asked if I wanted him to stop and get me some on his way home. I totally did but I didn't know what kind, I told him I wanted some that was kinda salty, peppery but I didn't know what kind that was..

An hour later he comes home with the most amazing jerky!! He went to this really popular meat market by his work, waited in line like 20 minutes and got it! It was kinda spendy at $11 for half a pound but soooo worth it!

Has your husband does something like this? I want to hear about your awesome hubby's!

Toddle Along Tuesday- Inexpensive Entertainment

Today I was reading Mama Geeks post about inexpensive toys from the dollar bins at Target that entertain her adorable daughter Carina and thought I'd join in the fun! I can not pass up the dollar bins at ANY store.. Usually at Joanns and Target.. Michaels has "cheap" bins, usually things are like $2.50 or more.

I think Lyla's favorite things I've gotten her are some fat princess markers and a little Buzz Lightyear notebook. She would sit for quite awhile and "write" stuff in it. Or miniature velvet coloring posters! (psst.. I may have enjoyed those more)

I am pretty sure I have bought Lyla tons of stuff from those bins in the last year for like every holiday.. Headbands, sunglasses, books, character socks, balls and plastic toys that break in a week but held her attention for awhile. They have pretty cool things for mommies too! I've gotten home decorating stuff, card making kits and holiday stuff! If you have not checked out any of these bins you NEED to! Hurry, go!

Music Monday

I haven't done one of these in awhile so I thought today would be good!

I think this is a perfect summer, drive with the windows down song. Plus he's pretty hot.
