you deserve a little sunshine!

Beautiful and graceful, varied and enchanting, small but approachable, butterflies lead you to the sunny side of life. And everyone deserves a little sunshine. ~Jeffrey Glassberg

Once upon a time I went to my friend Becca's wedding...and the reception...and after the festivities were over and people were cleaning up, they were just throwing away the lovely napkin rings...so I gathered up a bouquet's worth of lovely flower napkin rings and I just love pulling them out to grace my table when I have guests over.

Photobucket

I spent the afternoon preparing the most delicious dinner...check it out over on Dishcraft and see for yourself how I did it...you will thank me...
I personally believe that in order for a meal to be truly appreciated, you have
to use your nice dishes, cloth napkins, pretty napkin rings,
domed glass over desert and a pretty table cloth.
Things just taste better when
you present it well.

The entire menu included:
Mashed Sweet Potatoes
Creamed Spinnach (thanks Christy!)
Salad (thanks Jessi and Sarah!)
and for dessert:
Angel Food cake with Peaches
(the frozen variety that had thawed out on the counter and I had
covered with brown sugar...super yummy and easy)

Photobucket

The dinner got rave reviews! We had such a nice night enjoying each others company
and enjoying the food. My idea of a good time!

A day in September!

It's that time of the month where I link up with Mrs. B and share our Day in September!
So sit back, relax and enjoy!

Photobucket

Good morning Mr!
He tears his room up when I'm not looking....

Photobucket

Like his fancy jammies? lol
haha...mismatched...
but it was comfy :)

Photobucket

time for some morning nana's!

Photobucket

Then he wanted my cereal so we shared.

Photobucket

He is mastering the art of the spoon.

Photobucket

....and once again I set my camera down and took a picture of our
ceiling and light fixture with out knowing I did it...haha...

Photobucket

He wanted some "nu nu" before we really got going...
this is his happy-excited-I'm-about-to-nurse face...isn't he sweet?

Photobucket

I much prefer the side by side method for nursing cause then I get to lay down for a while :)

Photobucket

next up we took a bath! Judah loves playing in the water

Photobucket

He was asking me to take his diaper off so he could get in the tub.

Photobucket

buns!

Photobucket

squeaky clean!

Photobucket

He wanted his blanky while he played and mommy got ready for the day.
He always bites it.

Photobucket

We loaded up in the car and headed out for the afternoon.

Photobucket

oh how we love our Taco Bell. Judah ate a whole bean burrito!
I think he's having a growth spurt.

Photobucket

Creative Diaper Changing.

Photobucket

We picked my friend Christy up and headed to the Country Music Hall of Fame.
It was free museum day so we got in for no cost...my idea of a good time :)

Photobucket

Stand by Your Man!
(Lance was working today, but I thought of him here!)

There was a light hanging down in this booth and it's shadow cast a microphone onto the wall.
We have great imaginations of course.

Photobucket

Elvis Elvis!

Photobucket

Silver Dollars in the dash and a shot gun on the back...there was also a revolver on the front where the little hood ornament should be...danger zone!

Photobucket

Photobucket

So awesome all the records showcased.

Photobucket

Anyone else watch HeeHaw growing up?!

Photobucket

reflections of...the way life used to be...
(sing it with me now...)

Photobucket

Judah was having fun dancing to the good country music,
until he tripped over my foot and biffed it. awesome.

Photobucket

This room was stunning.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Elvis Elvis!

Photobucket

We completely enjoyed our visit to the Country Music Hall of Fame.
It was very interesting and I am a country music lover so I especially loved it!

Photobucket

Next up, we headed to Centennial Park for an Art Fair.

Photobucket

Lots of people and puppies to watch!

Photobucket

Judah liked this puppy. This is the kind of puppy I wouldn't mind bringing home.
No fuss no muss.

Photobucket

Photobucket

More creative diaper changing.

Photobucket

Photobucket

Lots of folks out celebrating, it was a perfect day!

Photobucket

The groom saw me pointing my camera his way and he gave me the peace sign :)
super cute.
love was in the air!

Photobucket

Looking for "Ah pah" also known as Airplanes.

Photobucket

Home sweet home! Judah's little friends always say Hi to us when he is in the backyard, from the top of their tree house. It is cute. "Hey baby Judah!"
He says "Hi" to them whether they are there or not now :)

Photobucket

Photobucket

I left him alone with some veggies and black beans and this is what happened.
Ha!

Photobucket

No choice...he had to have a bath...not that he minded...
two baths in one day is his idea of a good time.

Photobucket

Look at how cute the little tooth brush holder is? It attaches to the mirror
and the tbrush pulls in and out of it with a snap. Best 5$ I ever spent :)

Photobucket

This child LOVES to brush his teeth.

Photobucket

Squeaky clean! again :)

Photobucket

I found the matchy matchy top to the jammies this time :)

Photobucket

Did you read my post yet about the "wonder" of the night light?

Photobucket

oh I love that little sweet night night face.

I didn't take pics of the rest of my night. To boring. Just sat on the couch and watched tv.

It was a wonderful day!
