Day 18- "What You Like Best About Each Member of Your Family"

I love so many things about all the members of my little family but I will try hard to keep it to what I like best...

Waylon: I love how much he loves his family. His kids always come first and I think that is a great attribute in a man. He is not shy about showing his love for them and that makes our bond so strong. I have known since early on in our relationship that he would be a great dad, but he exeeds my expectations everyday in the daddy department. I am proud to call him my husband.

Jon Walker: I love that deep down he is a mama's boy. He is so smart and can be on his own doing his own thing, racing cars, playing with his friends, playing Mr. Tough Guy, or whatever else, but at the end of the day he is in my lap showing me at his little arms length just how much he loves me. We are alot alike with our sensitivities and our hearts of gold, and I am proud to call him my first born.

Kennedy: I love (most of the time) how strong willed she is. She is so independent and is already alive far beyond her years. She has that special spark for life and will always be able to handle her own. It is a little scary how strong she is at this age, but I know she will grow into the strongest woman and that makes me feel safe for her. I am proud to know she will be secure with herself and stand up for what she believes in.

Day 17- "A Photo of Your Family"

I have made it known that I do love to photograph our family and document our special occasions, but I do slack in the family photo department. At Kennedy's birthday last weekend, I told Waylon that I wanted to get a picture of all of us because it has been so long since we've had one taken of our family. Well, I didn't get a family shot, but I managed to get one of Waylon and I, so that was good. I guess when you have the cutest kids ever, they become the center of attention and they are what the camera focuses on! The family photo I am featuring today is our church picture from this year. It was taken at the end of spring and really turned out great in my opinion!!!

Day 16- "A Favorite Food"

This is going to be so hard, but I will try to follow directions and post about "a" favorite food. Anyone who knows me knows that I love food. Not so much that I am a foodie who tries new restaurants all the time and goes way out there on trying really different foods, but I am one who loves what I love and I have no trouble putting it back! So, if I had to pick one food above all others right at this very moment, my favorite would be...


(with eel sauce, of course)

Day 14- "Things You Love" And A Pool Party!

First and foremost, I love my husband. He is the man God picked for me to live a long life with and he is the one He chose as the father of my children. Kennedy and Jon Walker adore him and we have really "grown" into our relationship in the past couple of years. We have been together a long time, but now we seem to really have "it."

In somewhat of an order, other things I love include: God, my family, girlfriends, travel, nursing school, my strong will, the beach, red wine, small town living with the big city at my fingertips, design, a good deal, a great, unexpected find, my independence, cake, a Redbird sushi roll, romantic, exotic places, reality television and my dvr, flip flops, big bows on little girls, custom designed furniture, a clean house, and the list could go on and on...


In other news, we celebrated Kennedy's 4th birthday this past weekend. Her birthday is August 7, but with school starting we decided to have her Pool Party right at the end of the summer. I used Pinterest (you must check out if you have's the new addiction) to jump start my brain for ideas and I really ran with the whole water theme. It turned out cute and she had a lot of friends show up. She got lots of nice gifts and the pool was a perfect place to host a party on a 100 degree day!

Sorry for the craziness of the photo placement or spacing. I have no clue what happened and no patience to try to change it!

Day 13- "Something You Want To Buy"

I have always enjoyed taking photos and actually took a few courses in photography in college. I think I'm pretty good at it, too. I have always thought "maybe one day I'll get one of those big fancy cameras" but a few months ago I picked up a friend's and the rest is history. One click of the shutter and I was hooked. I have done a lot of research and with what I want and the price I am willing to pay, I will probably end up purchasing the Nikon D3100. It is what I really want to buy next. Who knows birthday is in November and Christmas is around the corner...can someone make sure my hubby reads today's post?!?!?!

Day 12- "Something You Bought Recently"

I am very proud of one of my most recent purchases. For the most part, I am proud of myself for committing to a photo I liked enough to have it printed large enough for the wall. We have taken family portraits or portraits of the kids twice a year, but I very rarely order many. I guess I know that I have such limited wall space for larger portraits so I am always hesitant to order the larger sizes. At least I have the images saved for a later day though right?!?! So without further explanation, my most recent purchase for my house is a 16x20 portrait of the kids and I had it framed in a frame I've had my eyes on for a couple of years now. I love the old, distressed, carved wooden frames and finally made the plunge and started a collage wall in our entry way.

I love the final result...the overall product is young, fun, unique, colorful, and features the most beautiful children!
