Happy Monday!!

No matter how your Monday is treating you so far, just remember one thing. Your house is cleaner than mine. Now that should make you feel good. Don't believe me? I think the picture proves my point. Moving = Awesomeness. (Not really)

Chocolate for Breakfast

I love a home made Valentine. Every year I usually bake something. Let me rephrase that- I bake something from a box. This chick does NOT know how to bake from scratch. Being an avid pinner, I have found that you can make just about anything with a chocolate chip cookie crust. I'm also a big fan of the Jell-O no bake desserts. And so was born an early morning Valentine's Day snack. My family really loves me today! Yes- Kittrell even got a bite earlier, and Abel was right there to help clean him up. Funny stuff.

Happy Valentine's Day!!

(Pardon me on the timeline of the pictures- blogging from my phone and my phone doesn't want to act right today!!)

I win!

I got the baby, that is. Thank goodness I didn't choke on the tiny thing. Mardi Gras in Meridian today- of course I had to get me a king cake! Daniel and Ashlyn had a father- daughter day at the parade. That 20 degree wind chill and high winds were enough to keep me and Kittrell at home for the day. They sure did have fun without us, though! Maybe we'll come back for it next year, so Kittrell and I can attend.

In case you haven't heard, we're packing up and leaving the hills for good. Greenwood- here we come. However, I have got to figure out how I'm supposed to pack up an entire house in just 2 weeks. I've gotten off to a good start, I think. But, I'm beginning to think I have too much stuff. Like I only have 5 boxes packed, some stuff waiting to go in boxes- and that was just from the china cabinet and buffet. (And neither the china cabinet nor buffet are even all the way cleaned out yet.) These next 2 weeks should be fun.....

Silver Problems

It's almost 3 in the afternoon. You know what I've been doing ALL day? Polishing silver. There has got to be an easier way to keep my silver pretty. I'm so lucky to have acquired so many silver pieces from family members, and also love all of the silver we got for wedding gifts. This past weekend, I got some silver cups that belonged to grandmothers and great grandmothers. So while I have my polish out polishing them, might as well touch up everything else, right? What have I gotten myself into... Seriously, who likes polishing silver? Put your hand down, Mary Neff. I find polishing to be a bitch. So much so, that I'm going to have to get a job so that I can pay someone to polish my silver for me from now on. I am just no good at it. That or let Ashlyn and Daniel take a shot at it and hope they are natural born polishers. Let's hope option 2 works out for me.

A Day in the Life

He's always so busy. Follows the dog everywhere, beats on his tray and yells at me when he's hungry, thinks the baby gate is his new toy, etc...
