yea erin!

last week i got this baby in the mail....

my brand spanking new 2012 erin condren planner! i'm really excited! i love a good planner. while i've been using cozi, which also has an app for my phone, its been great but i really miss having an actual planner in my hand. when i discovered erin condren (thanks blog world) i fell in love with the color and personalization of their planners. i'm really happy with it and i can't wait to start using it. Lord knows my life could use some serious organization at this point. ha!

book club friday

i'm linking up today for another edition of book club friday. a couple of weeks ago i reviewed my best friends girl by dorothy koomson. i really loved this book. so much that right after i read it i went out and bought another book by this author.....

i loved this one too. i read both of these a little over a year ago, so it may even be time for me to read them again. here is the synopsis according to

Kendra Tamale is looking for a fresh start and a simple life when she rents a room from Kyle Gadsborough. But against her better judgment Kendra soon finds herself drawn into her new landlord’s household: a young father in way over his head, a beautiful mother out the door, and six-year-old twins, Summer and Jaxon, with hearts full of hurt. Kendra has plenty of issues of her own, but this family seems to need her so desperately that she’s soon falling in love—with Summer’s constant chatter, Jaxon’s soulful eyes, and the sugar-laden Saturday breakfasts she invents. But when a secret from Kendra’s past resurfaces and the children are taken away by their mother, the only way to fix things is to confess to the terrible mistake she made many years ago—and the choice she makes now could break more than one person’s heart.

a great read if you want to read something quick and not too intense. right now i'm reading salem falls by jodi picoult. pretty intense. i'll share that soon. i'm super busy right now so i'm not too sure when i'll finish it.

go link up and share what you're reading and have a great weekend blog world!

miss me??

i know i've been a bad blogger and i haven't posted in a while. to say i've been busy does not even begin to describe my life right now, but that is for another post. today i'm talking about my baby girl's first day of school.
yes, she has been in montessori for 2 yrs now, but for some reason this is really hitting me hard. maybe its because she is looking like such a big girl. and that uniform? don't even get me started! it is so cute ya'll! she is loves school and she loved getting ready this morning and she loved that granny, sister, and daddy also came to see her on her first day at her new school. we are so blessed to be able to send her to an amazing christian school for at least this year. that tuition gets pretty steep the older they get. so, here's a photo dump of my sweet girls morning. enjoy!!

i am so excited about this season of our lives. lots of newness going on around here and i am so thankful to God for all the blessings that he has granted in our family. we are so blessed, but it has not come without a ton of stress and anxiety on my end, but again i will leave all that jibberish for another post. this post is just for my sweet, cute, mischevious girl. my heart is overflowing with love for her. every time.
