Claire's Wedding!

Claire(my bestie!) and Jeremy (Bella's prince charming) got married in June and here are some pictures from the big day! It was a fabulous day, way to hot, but fabulous day! Bella, Beka, and I were all in the wedding! So much fun, and of course Claire looked pretty fabulous herself!

Bella and Claire!

Ohh its been a while since I've visted this blog and figured it was about time to update it or just throw it in. Since Bella is at her daddy's for 2 weeks I have a little extra time on my hands (and i don't like it) I am missing her way to much these days!
Well, we moved to Birmingham and I guess It hasn't turned out to be what we expected or hoped for. However, all in due time Im sure God will reveal his plan for us and hopefully where we need to call "home". As for now, Bella and I are just enjoying our time together and getting her into all her new activities such as soccer, dance and her not so favorite, swimming.
Brooks sent me these photos of Bella and Harper and Julia out at Reunion a month back and I just loved them. Harper and Jules are such sweet friends to Bella and I couldn't be happier since Brooks and I are so close. It makes watching them grow up together, even more special. I love them!!

Bella has become OBSESSED with "So you think you can dance" I have to admit that its one of my favorites too, but she is really into Salsa and the Samba. The child loves to shake her booty! Anything Beyonce' sings, Bella sings. Esp. single ladies. She was def. born with rhythm. I caught her dancing to the Samba and quickly ran up stairs to get my phone when she stopped. Even on "Q" she shook it! Too funny.

Growing Up so Fast!

Can hardly believe my little girl is almost 3! Each day is a new adventure full of questions, questions, questions! Lord, my child is very inquisitive! She is either 100% a sweet angel, full of "i love you, mommy" or 100% ATTITUDE.. "I DO IT MYSELF" I never know which day it will be! I have to say this year has been very trying at times, but I honestly love watching her grow up. I enjoy that we can do so much together now! Things she loves: dancing, painting, reading, wearing high heels, makeup, dress up, barbies, babies, bubbles, puzzles, CADIE COLLINS, horses, GOING FISHING, picking flowers and CAKE! Her favorite foods are: Salad,oatmeal, yogurt with fresh fruit, bananas, noodles, Salsa, peppers...
I've been very blessed with not one, but 2 amazing grandmothers that can sow! LORD between my mom and Mrs. Lynn, Bella does not lack for anything! Always fit to a T and as she would say.. "NO BOW, NO GO!" Below are a few photos of my angel.


Bella and I went to see Moddy (Steph) in NYC in Aug for a very long weekend. It also happened to be one of my closets friends, Robyn's wedding. I was super excited to take Bella back since she was older, to visit Steph and all my friends and to get to go to Robyn's wedding at the Plaza! The wedding was breath-takingly beautiful as were the bride and groom! I couldn't have been happier! It was a wonderful wedding weekend!
Bella spent a lot of time with my girlies... Steph,Lauren, Carly, Claire and Mr. Kim ;) She showed out a few times but all in all we had a great time. She got to see her first Broadway show "Pinkalicious", we made pottery at FAO, saw a Barbie runway show at FAO, designed a BLACK (YES BLACK BARBIE AFTER HER MOTHER)played in the Park and visted Brooklyn. IT ALL WAS FUN! Steph was a super trooper to have us both there and did an amazing job of taking care of B while I was busy with wedding details. Always.. Always a place in my heart. I hope Bella will one day know just how amazing this city is. MOST OF MY GOOD PICTURES ARE ON FACEBOOK. THESE ARE THE ONES FROM MY iPHONE. STEPH TOOK ALL THE GOOD ONES WITH HER ACTUAL CAMERA.

Elmo Live with Jacey Woods!

I had the opportunity of taking Bella and her best friend Jacey Woods to see Elmo live! We lucked up and got front row seats! The girls were great and loved every minuet of it! Jacey spent the night and after a super fun night the girls crashed hard! We always love having her around. She is such a sweet child!

A date with the Holloways!

I had the privilege of keeping Crew and Carrington about a month ago to let Ryan and Jenny have a much needed date night! Jenny is constantly going and if you know her, you know she is the ultimate SUPERMOM-SUPER EVERYTHING! Ryan isn't too shabby himself! He is a go getter too! ha ha.. SO! Cadie, Bella and I went for a FUN night at the Holloway's! Those 3 were soo funny, constantly playing and copying each others' every move! From dancing to Tot's American Idol at bedtime, we had a blast! Bella did NOT want to leave and cried the whole way home! She still is asking, "we see Carrington and Cuw?" I love it! Thanks Jen and Ryan for letting us have a wonderful night! we love you!
