Right Now Challenge: Week 39


Happy Friday, friends! Here’s Week 39!

  • Luke thinks fake sneezes are hilarious and he cracks up when I let my tongue touch his head. ;)
  • I told Jack Goodnight, and that I loved him and he said, “AMEN!”
  • Jack: “Come and see my castle I made, Mama. It’s even more AWESOMER!” Ha!

These kids of mine crack me up! LOVE jotting these down! ;)

Have a blessed day and weekend ahead! XOXO!

Capture Life Photography Workshop


I am BEYOND excited and proud of my sweet and talented friend, Rebecca of Simple As That and her new photography workshop that she is teaching at Big Picture Classes. Rebecca takes THE most gorgeous photographs! I’m in awe of her and how beautiful and classic all of her photos are. I just love them!

Although we’re moving in just a few days, I wanted to pop in here and tell you all a bit about the workshop so you don’t miss out!

The workshop is a 12-week photography workshop with Big Picture Classes! You’ll learn to add a touch of magic to your everyday moments, and really bring your photographs to life! She will help you tell better stories with the pictures you take and improve your technical photography skills along the way.

Rebecca will share the specific tools, tricks, and ideas she uses to create the lovely, fresh, nostalgic look she’s known for. She’ll walk you through her process start to finish—from creative beginning to post-processing end. Here’s your chance to use her workflow as a foundation for developing a process that works for you.

How awesome is that?! That’s what I need! LOL!

Hope you all are having a wonderful week! Hopefully when all of this moving craziness slows down a bit – I’ll be able to catch up and get back to more blogging! I miss it and have lots to share! Thanks so much for understanding!

Today is a BIG day! The new Project Life® App is NOW available on iTunes! Yay! I am SO excited to be able to scrapbook ON THE GO with just my phone! How cool is that?! I’m SUPER excited for Becky and the rest of her awesome team for this release! I know they’ve worked really hard on getting it available so that we can have this really cool tool on our phones!

Have a great Thursday!! XOXO!

Luke: 12 months


(photo template from HERE and onesie sticker from HERE)

I’m a little late posting this, seeing as how Luke just turned 13 months old, but hey – at least it’s recorded – that’s what’s important. Am I right? ;) Here’s what Luke was up to at one year:

  • You were 18 lbs 6 oz at your 12 month appointment. Gotta look up how long you were. I’ll get back to that! ;)
  • Your first food you tried was organic homemade applesauce and you loved it.
  • You are a GREAT eater and will eat just about anything! Such a nice change from your brother and sister who are SUPER picky. ;)
  • You smile SO big and when you make your cheese smile you make this noise and when we hear it – we know you’re smiling BIG. It sounds like, “NEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!” ;)
  • When you want something you point to it and then point to yourself. You are super smart.
  • You love to “read” books
  • You are super stubborn (still) and getting a bit opinionated already. Uh oh.
  • You walk so great and you are SO fast. It’s like you’re running & that freaks me out seeing as how you like to crash a lot. Sigh.
  • You have these adorable curls on the back of his head. SUPER sweet.
  • You love Jack’s green light saber.
  • You love your Elmo sippy cup and love ice cold water.
  • You’re still breastfeeding like a champ and sleeping great.
  • You still LOVE to dance and when I mean love – I mean that any sound with a beat (even the blender) you will dance to it! ;)
  • You are STILL loved A LOT.


Right Now Challenge : Week 37


It sure has been quiet around here, huh? Sorry about that friends! LOTS going on here and just haven’t had the time or energy to blog much, but hoping to get back on track soon! I’m even late with my Right Now Challenge for today. Whooops. Better late than never though! Gotta keep that streak going! ;)

I’ve only got one thing for today, but it’s something!

  • Jack, “Mama – you know what it feels like to have no jelly toast at breakfast? It feels sad.” Ha! Poor guy! Of course I got some Ezekial bread and jelly for him! ;)

Hope you all have a great weekend! I’m ready for some football and relaxation! Maybe I can get a few blog posts ready to go, too! ;)
