but I am not, but I do like.

{The Old Mill Little Rock Part II}

Down the street from my sisters house is The Old Mill.
I think she said it was the opening scene in Gone With the Wind. . .if I didn't
dream that?? 
All you would need is a nice shirt 
and a good camera to have 
some amazing photos. 
But we had neither that day, so we 
just had fun and enjoyed 
each others company 
and the 
It is a very pretty place.

{Judy Moody Little Rock Part I}

We had a fun on our very quick trip to Little Rock. 
We took the kiddos to see Judy Moody.
Such a cute little movie.
I didn't like it as well as Romona, but still adorable. 
Kayla & Lily 
The Cousin Crew. 
It was hot hot, so we didn't venture to the zoo, but I hope to next time.
They have a new penguin exhibit. 
Talk soon!

{Be a Slack Cutter, not a Slacker}

Tonight The Mr. was promoted to a Sargent.  I am excited and happy for him.
But a tad apprehensive. . .things have been hard (for lack of a better adjective) at his work for
the last few months.  My "human feelings" could run rapid on here, but not only

would that be wrong of me, I know first hand how words can hurt.
 Even if I say "Sticks and Stones, Sticks and Stones" over in my head a million times. . . they still hurt.
People need love.
People need people to cut people some Slack.
So I am going to be a
Slack Cutter not a Slacker, but a Slack Cutter.
Sweet Buddy got some more CaKe!
We love cake.
It was YuMmy.
He is his mommy's son.
Good food=Smile.
Sissy Girl.
Okay, even SwEeTer than the cake. . .
Ta Dah!
Brad got a promotion, BUT
I got a gift!
How cute is this!!!
Thank you Tara W. for my Beach Cruiser!!!
It is complete with surf board.
Clayton missed tonight, due to having his feet in these
on the field. I hated for him to miss. . .
I am almost loaded up ready to go see my sister! If I was smart I would've took a pic of these
prior to loading them. But they are fabulous chairs my sister bought
last time she was here but she could fit them in her car.
I am going to deliver them to her.
I must admit I am secretly hoping she will change her mind on them
I am in LOVE with them.
Shhhhh. . . our secret.
No coveting.
Just love.
See ya!

{Catwalk, Work-It}

I have been a tad MIA, but life has had me here and there, more there than here. Ya know?
I dropped this Bright "H" in the yard earlier, perhaps it will bring some life to my dead crunchy yard.
I am leaving in the morning to see my sister in Little Rock.
 I made a copy of a picture of us from one of our past visits, so I am
excited about getting it to her. 
This is one of my projects from early summer I don't think I ever shared.
I just bought the inexpensive Apple Barrel paint from Wal Mart and went to town.
I did put a clear sealer over it, but I have enjoyed them the 5 seconds I have
spent in my backyard this summer. 
I had to text my neighbor earlier to borrow some hair spray. . .
Its called Catwalk Work-It (this should be interesting)
I am going to fix my
hair. Yes, it is a special occasion. The Mr. is supposed to get a promotion at the
Police Dept tonight. 
I guess y'all heard about The Puppy getting out. . . since it was on the news and all.
It was a great night to be at The Hobbs. . .
We will talk more soon!

{Football & Sweet Gumball Dress}

Clayton is excited to be back in a helmet this year after taking a year off. 
Lily's Nana Mary has a friend that made her this sweet dress.
She wore it Sunday to church.

{My 1st Picture from my Phone}


{My Parents}

My parents help in the nursery every week! 
I am thankful for their willingness to invest their time 
in something that is so near and dear to me!

{Seen it on Facebook}

I am happy to report I am feeling much better.  I am still medicated, and a
tad scratchy but my "itchy rash" seems to be under control.  So, in lou of
feeling better we went to VBS last night (or VHS as my new phone likes to recognize it as).
It was family VBS, which was different, but what joy floods your soul when you see
first hand, your children learning about the Lord!  It was just a super time.
The "craft" last night was cookie mix to be delivered to a neighbor, home bound, but
hopefully someone who needs to hear the Good News (well, we all need the Good News, but you know what I mean). As you can see the plan of salvation is on the tag.  We have been having
the best discussions (teachable moments) about who we will take our mix to.
Other thoughts. . . love.this.cleaner.
Use it on everything. Give it a try.
You cant beat antibacterial nor Windex. 
Little Miss Lily broke out her new Easy Bake last night with high hopes of
baking some warm delicious brownies in those lovely little metal pans.
But who knew the must-have 100 watt lite bulb wasn't included?
Well. . . someone that reads the box might know that, but this was
a swell birthday gift from her Aunt D. Rouse so I have a grand excuse.

I just wish I would've noticed prior to the hype. 
I kinda' sorta gave up on my hopes to always have fresh lemons for my water.
So I have purchased some ReaLemon. Highly effective and good. 
Some other Summer Staples in the frig have been:
MAYO with Olive Oil (did you know OO is good for your nails? Take a look at mine in the cookie dough pic. . . not sayin' its workin' a miracle for me, but perhaps it will for you.)
Dill Relish. LOVE.
Did y'all hear Yarnells is going out of business?
Seen it on facebook!!
(Lord, help us all. . . I feel like either say that or hear someone say that a million times a day.) 
I think it is time to put away my "4th" frames, but I wanted to 
share them first (probably did last year too). 
I am very loyal and predictable that way.
Talk soon.

My kids are OUTSIDE playing!  I didn't think it was going to happen this summer.
Thank you Lord for the cooler temps!
