one man's trash.....

HELLLOOOOOOOOOOOO BLOG!  Hello to anyone out there. Mom.
Here is a recent yard sale find.  This sad foam alphabet that I am sure saw some fun days in a bathtub.  I don't think anyone else would have even considered it for fifty cents.....but I had a vision. And, I had fifty cents.  
I had a canvas.
I had some white spray paint. 
And Mr. Tree got to visit. 

And the new addition sits happily on a stack of red books in a little guy's bedroom.

Food Truck Round Up

 Hoss and I enjoy the "The Great Food Truck Race" on the Food channel so when we saw Food Trucks all gathered, we were super excited. 
 We joined their Faceook page to track the Round Ups and we powered through the heat to enjoy a very yummy shredded pork sandwich with green chillies.

 Levi loved it!
And enjoyed the company of his pal, Jeremiah.

And, he even got to try some icecream!  See you at the next Round Up.

A lot can change in a year

Last year, here we sister-in-law Betsy and my friend of over 20 years, Amy.  They threw a shower for me and baby Levi.  Can you find him?! 
 And almost exactly a year later, Here we are!  Only this time, I was giving Amy a shower (Betsy's is still to come!)  And both of them are pregnant and due a week apart!!  Amy is having a girl and Betsy is having a boy! 

 Sometimes I think that if we could sit back and see what God has planned for us, we would get a kick out of the blessings and circumstances that are to come. I hope I don't miss them!  I hope I always turn back to God and thank him for simple joys and giant sized miracles that only he gives. 
"Every good and perfect gift is from above....." James 1:17

Jillian Alexis Keith

Took pictures of these sweet friends today. Their new baby girl is darling. She is 4 weeks old and it has been fun lovin on her and imagining how small Levi was just 10 short months ago. I sure haven't done a shoot in a long time but I did enjoy it and Jillian is a beauty. I can't wait to see all the cute things she does as she grows!

Hoss has a dot com!

Hoss woke up one day and said, "I want a website.  What do you think?" 
I said, "Um, yes...duh!" 

Later that same night, he had a website!!  I was so surprised and so glad that it was something that he didn't have to talk about for months. 

SO, without further ado, I give you

Oh, and watch for what I refer to as MY song, Psalm 17, even though it's God's, not mine but I did get to sing it!!

Mother's Day

......was fabulous!  Hoss set a very high standard for himself.  Or did he set it high for me, being as Mother's day comes before Father's guy he is. 
On Friday, we went up to Phoenix to visit our friends, Will and Melissa and Liam.  Liam just had his 1st birthday in April.  The boys took a bath together and we put them down to bed and went out to dinner!  The amount of fun I had was extreme, which told me that I need to get out more often....Then, we had breakfast and played with Liam some more before we went out shopping to all my favorite stores and Hoss' favorite Phoenix restaurant, St. Francis. 
We came back home and on Sunday morning, Hoss woke me up with breakfast in bed; heart pancakes and a card from Levi. 
They also gifted me with a massage at Rubs and some fancy Williams Sonoma dish towels....    After church, we had lunch with his parents and then dinner with mine at Zin Burger....Life is good.  Thank you my sweet boys for a perfect 1st Mother's day weekend!  It is my joy to be Levi's mommy and Hoss' wife.
