sunday funday!

Again this morning Essie got us up extra early so we decided to take advantage and head to the park.  It's been awhile since we've been there since it's been so dang hot outside.  When we pulled up and she saw where we were she shreiked and screamed and laughed and clapped.  Once we got her out of the car she took off and didn't stop until we had to pry her away kicking and screaming! She had a BLAST and was all over the place!

After the park we headed to Walmart for a few groceries and once we got home E took a nap while we cleaned up some.  Once E got up from her nap we decided to go cruise the mall and let E play in the playland.  Once again she went NUTS for it and was sooooo excited! I also found this great little closet organizer in the dollar section that I'm going to use to put her clothes in for the week.  I am so in love with it!

Then we came home and I cooked for like 2 hours straight.  I made poppyseed chicken, okra and tomatoes, and peach delight for dessert.  I am updating the recipe blog with a bunch of new recipes so hop over there to check them out!!!

blue clues live!!!

This morning Essie woke us up extra early so we cooked pancakes for  breakfast, got dressed, and headed over to the local farmers market! She loved that place! She ran all over! We bought some fresh okra, green tomatoes, giant roma tomatoes, and peaches!

Then we went over to a local school to watch their performance of "Blues Clues Live".  We met up with a whole bunch of ladies I work with as well as their kiddos!!! Essie had a blast! She danced, jumped, clapped the whole time! She was so in love with Blue!

Then we came home and took a nap and we've been busy, busy, busy cleaning our messy house and doing laundry all day!!!

some FIRSTS!!!

Well Travis got his first phone call to sub today!!! He got to sub in a first grade classroom so he was on my hallway with me! So exciting..I was so nervous for him I checked in on him like 100 times today!  It was kinda fun working together and eating lunch together today! He said it wasn't too bad!!

And right after work we took Essie to get her first Haircut! Her hair had gotten soooo outta control we had to do something!  She was so very good...she sat completely still for the most part!

She looks like such a big girl now! She no longer has bangs to her chin...and the back got just a little trim as well!!

And while she was outside modeling her new 'do she fell and scraped both her knees up so she has her first booboo that needed a bandaid!  She kept pointing to her bandaid and saying "oh". 

We all three have a head cold so we are going to take it easy and relax for the rest of the night!

burned butternut and consignment finds!

Tonight was Rhea Lana's preview night..I had a pass so I went.  I've never really found much at Rhea Lana but thought maybe I'd have better luck by going during the preview night.  I managed to score several great finds.  In all I got E.C SIX pair of pajamas as well as several other cutie patootie things.

This was the most expensive item I bought but it's sooo worth it! 8 bucks for these super duper cute overalls!

And what a lucky score that I found a red dress with an E already on it for 5 buckeroos!

I'm going to have some monogramming done on this one to jazz it up but thought it was a cute Christmas dress!!

And here are a few other things I bought! Most of these were 4 dollars!

And I just had to post this pic...I was cleaning Essie's room this evening and forgot all about the butternut squash I had roasting in the oven! daaaang...you can imagine the lovely smell in my house!

And I thought Essie was toooo funny after her bath tonight!!! She was not happy!

a jumping sickie

Essie's not feeling well today...her nose is running like a faucet and she's sneezing her poor head off!!!  She's SUPER FUSSY this evening and just walks around screaming.  We put her in her jammies around 4:30 since we knew she's be in bed early!

She was in a better mood when we got home and wanted to "jump" on the bed.  It's her new thing.  She likes to jump on us and the bed all the time now.

And just for fun we put her in the clothes hamper! She didn't think it was as funny though.

quick trip to batesville...

This morning we loaded up and headed towards Batesville...Essie was ready to travel with her baby, brown bear book, sippie cup, and sassy!

Then she got silly and started doing this...

Essie's friend Sam was having his first birthday party! They were really born only 2 days apart but they had his party today! Essie had a blast and Sammy was so cute!
