Thursday, March 31, 2016

Happy Thursday Friends.
I have had this week off for Spring Break so the last thing I have wanted to do is open my computer!
Get ready for a photo overload, all over the place update!

Nicklas received a Busy Bee Reading Award from school.  This is his first award and I am so, so proud!

Kellyn sent me this pic from school last week.  I know he was freaking out about a fire truck at school!

Nicklas woke up at 3:00 AM one day last week.  I still sent him to school that day and his teacher told me that he was falling asleep at 9:00 AM... I was doing the same thing at work!

My mother in law and I threw a baby shower for my sister in law last Saturday.  Since I was co hosting I didn't get to take many pictures.

The baby shower fell on the same day as Brookes birthday party.  Boy Jamie stepped up and took Nicklas to the party.  They had a jumpy house and he said Nicklas had a blast!

Love these 2 so, so much!

This is Nicks babysitter Jamie!

Nick was asked to play T-ball this year but with us moving we just couldn't commit to it right now.  But we are practicing for next year. 

I leave for church an hour earlier than Jamie and Nicklas.  One Sunday they decided to go have breakfast together!

Sweet Kellyn sent me pictures of Nicks Easter celebration at school!

That day I got his note sent home.  We had to have a long talk about this....

Do any of you hate plastic Easter eggs as much as I do?!

Just helping me do some laundry....

Jamies family has a huge Easter celebration.  There are probably 25 kids and they hide all kinds of eggs with prizes!

The Easter bunny dropped off some gifts at Grammie and Poppys house.

Then the Easter bunny came to our house.... and left everything in boxes.  #momfail

Then the Easter bunny stopped a 3rd time for Nicklas at Gonna and Grand daddys house!

My mom bakes this cute cake!

We took my parents to see our land and Uncle Kevin and Kaylin were there.  Kevin took the kids for a ride on the gator!

The Liebster Award

Wednesday, March 23, 2016

A huge thank you to Sarah @ Seeing All Sides for nominating me for this fun award.  Sarah's blog has become one of my most favorites to read, so check it out!

Sarah asked me 11 fun questions so lets jump right in!

1.Why did you start blogging?
I started blogging about 6 months after I had Nicklas.  I wanted a fun way to document our lives.  Its so fun to go back and read about things that I had completely forgot about. 

2. How has your blog changed through the years? 
My blog really hasn't changed that much.  I have started doing more link ups and sharing more personal facts about myself.  Mainly my blog still focuses on Nicklas!

3.What is your favorite post and why? Provide a link to it!
This is a hard one.  I think it would be the re introduction I just did recently.  I loved being open and sharing more about myself.  You can check it out here.

4. What have you learned through blogging?
I thought blogging would be easy... its not.  It is very time consuming and I really have to be in the mood to sit down and write.  Don't get me wrong, I LOVE being able to look back and read about Nicklas when he was a baby and I am so glad that I am blogging.  Its just a lot more work than I thought it would be.

5.  If you could meet one blogger friend in real-life, who would it be? 
I would have to say Sarah!  We seem like we would get along so well, and we could sit and watch reality TV together.  I would also love to meet Jessica from Little Baby Garvin.

6. What is your favorite social media platform and why?
Well if you had asked me that about a month ago I would have said instagram (@jamie9283) but now it is Snapchat!  Y'all, I'm addicted!  Follow me @jbp902.  I promise to follow back!

7. What was the last think you ordered online?
Okay don't judge me... Nicks Easter basket.  Yes... horrible mommy.  But in my defense, our house is on the market and under contract and I just didn't want to fool with it.  So I bought a cheap, pre made basket that he is going to love!

8.  What is your favorite place in your house and why?
We have a sectional couch and I like to prop up some pillows and lay right in the corner with a fuzzy blanket!  Usually Nicklas is cuddled right next to me!

9. What are you most looking forward to this summer?
We will hopefully be building our new home this summer so we do not have a vacation planned.  So I am looking forward to the whole building process and being in our new home.

10. What is the last vacation you took?
This is so sad... it was in 2011 and we went to Hilton Head Island.

11.  If you chose another job different than what you have now, what would you choose?
I would be a teacher.  When I was younger I always dreamt of being a teacher.  Not sure what happened?!

11 facts about me:
1. My husband and I have the same first and last name.  Usually in my blog he is referred to as boy Jamie.
2. We have 2 chihuahuas, Sassy and Toby.
3.  I am incredibly afraid of the dark.
4.  I am originally from Mississippi.
5. My Starbucks order is always a grande White Chocolate Mocha.
6. Nicklas is named after my dad and my father in law.
7.  Nicklas was born on my grandfathers birthday.
8. I had a pet pig named annabelle when I was in elementary school.
9. I hate snow.  I seriously hate everything about it.

Half Birthdays and House Update

Tuesday, March 15, 2016

Happy Tuesday Friends.
I have some super exciting news to share with all of you!
You will just have to read on to see what it is!

Nicklas had the best time playing with Andrea and Matt.
Thanks guys for helping on the house and entertaining sweet Nicklas!

Nicklas was sick a few weeks ago so Jamie stayed home with him one day.  They rented The Good Dinosaur and Jamie said it was sad.  I haven't watched it!

This is what Nicklas looked like on last Saturday morning.  Poor baby just did not feel good. 

While I stayed at home and painted, Jamie and Nicklas went to pick up dinner for us.  Poor baby just couldn't hang. 

This weekend Nick was all better.  The weather was amazing.  Jamie had to clean out his shop so him and Nicklas took a spin on the 4 wheeler.

We put our house on the market Friday night.  We had one showing on Saturday afternoon and they made us an offer.  After a little going back and forth we agreed and are now UNDER CONTRACT!!!  Yep, not even a full day on the market.  We are super excited and hope everything continues to go this smooth!  Prayers Please!

We went to a benefit on Saturday night for a friends daughter and sweet Nicklas got to help out. 

In other news... Nicklas is now 3 1/2 years old!  He celebrated his half birthday on Sunday!
