Can you believe my little Easter baby bunny Griffin is not a baby anymore... He is now a handsome TODDLER....sob....TEAR TEAR TEARS.......

He is so mischievous....He jumped off this table on Sunday night and busted his mouth open. Blood is running out of his mouth and he is climbing up on the table to jump again. BOYS!

How stylish is he? So Nashville. Paisley asked if this was Jesus?? I fibbed and told her yes.

How sweet is this picture of Grace and Paisley at Easter last year?! Sweet Grace is having bad days and good days. PLEASE pray for her daily. Her big test results come back April 13, 2011. Please please please pray for this day.

Okay, so here is what I am LOVING....

This perfume by Victor and Rolf called Flowerbomb. SO Yummylicious!!!

I am CRAZY about this dollhouse. Love it. Paisley will be getting this from the Easter Bunny...

Speaking of Easter, how cute are these baskets? I love a painted basket. LOTS to choose from on

What's yalls favorite Easter candy? Mine is HANDS DOWN these Cadbury Caramel Eggs....

So because of these eggs, I need this APPLICATION called LOSE IT! It is awesome. You enter in all your food and it calculates it for you. Oh yeah, it is FREEEEEEEE! YAY!!!!!

Below are some great kids clothes and clothes for mama.....Stephen is boring. He only shops at Brooks Brothers. HA!

All above are from Old Navy......Below are from Nordstrom and Piperlime...

Juicy Couture Beaded Bracelets....LOVE THESE!! If you buy one piece of jewelry for summer, buy these. THEY ARE SO STYLISH!!

Love this Tory Burch tote...

AND PRETTY PLEASE, WITH SUGAR ON TOP, BUY some TOMS. They are so freakin' comfy!!! I own 3 pairs of these babies. I have an issue with these will be the envy of everyone. Should I give a pair away in April? What do y'all think?

Love you all,

*One post per person, please


Today was one of those days that I woke up in a whining mood. I was having a total sob fest for myself. My face is CRAZY broken out right now. And when you call on dermatologists, well, that is NOT a good thing. SO of course, I self medicated on 70 things in my medicine cabinet. Don't judge. I am also trying to make it on 7 hours of sleep a night or less, and have approximately 7,000 things to do everyday.
But then I headed to the hospital to see Grace. When I walked off the elevator, I was greeted by this darling little boy with a slick bald head, no eyebrows, and pale coloring. And he was smiling. Ear to Ear. Because he could walk today and get out of his hospital bed. This is when I LOST IT. As in, I had to go to the bathroom and sob for 15 minutes. And reapply a whole face of make-up. Then I slapped myself in the face. Seriously? What do I have to whine about? Nada. Nothing. Because of these 2 healthy babies above....And I have a job. And a house with a roof. And more clothes than I could ever possibly wear. And no hospital bills. And a husband who loves me unconditionally. The blessings from up above are ENDLESS....Thank you Lord!

Switching gears, Grace had her spinal tap today. Everything went well with no complications, and they should have the test results back tomorrow. Please pray that the cancer is responding to the chemotherapy, and that no more cancer is found. Grace could possibly go home tomorrow and commute back to Vanderbilt for treatment each day. They feel she will be safer and less susceptible to germs and infection at home. So what a praise!!

I took these pictures of the babies on Sunday. I love that they are starting to play together.
Griffin loves to crawl and chase Paisley. He laughs and giggles at her. Paisley has been so sweet to him lately. Makes my heart sooo happy!
And how is this sweet thing gonna be one next Friday?????
He can be such a little drama king! Where does he learn such behavior??? I have no clue! HAHA!!
I love a good hissy fit picture....

He loves that rolling pin. SO funny.
And here is Mr. Griffin in his new red birthday chair from Pottery Barn Kids.

I could just eat him with a spoon!!

Be thankful today. Give thanks for the good things in your life!!

My spirits have been so down the last week...I am so sad about Japan and Egypt and walking around Vanderbilt Hospital so much. Those poor children, I can't hardly think about it without tearing up.

Y'all keep praying for sweet Grace....pray for her Drs, nurses, caregivers, family, and for the pain to go away....

In other news, Griffin has been on a Spring Break 2011 staycation....

He is hitting the bottle and chilllaxin' with some Barbie girls....

It cracks me up that every single Barbie in our house is naked!! Why is that? They immediately get there clothes taken off. They all look the same funny!

Paisley was in rare form yesterday morning. This is the conversation from the time her feet hit the ground until I checked her in at Sunday School..."Mommy, why do you eat salads and ice cream? Why can't I ride my scooter to church? What do crocodiles eat? Will I ever be able to fly like Tinkerbell? Why don't boys wear dresses? Sometimes, I wish I had a wenis." I love her, but I wish she had an off button sometimes. Is that bad?

And here is THE CUTEST hospital gown EVER!!!

My good friend Carrie made this for Grace. Is that cute or what? There is NOTHING, and I do mean NOTHING online that is this cute!! I love you Carrie!!
Check out her store at

And my cousin Janet made her this PRECIOUS needlepoint pillow. Thanks Janet!!! Love you!!

I cannot tell you how MANY of you have prayed, written on Caring Bridge, sent toys, packages, gifts, etc. etc. etc....I LOVE YOU ALL SOOOOOO MUCH!!!! I am so touched that people who don't even know Amy and Forest have been so giving!! I can't say thank you enough. I am reminded of this verse in the Bible, Matthew 25:36 "I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me."THANKS SO MUCH Y'ALL....Keep it up!! Follow daily here:

Here is a picture of me and Paisley at The Cheesecake Factory from 2 weeks ago....I love that sweet angel. She is so funny!
This was our conversation on Friday....
ME: "Paisley, how many babies are you gonna have me one day?!" P: "At least 10, and we can live upstairs in the attic!" ME:"Oh good, can my grandmother name be Glam-Maw?" P:"No, you will be older and have wrinkles, and just plain grandmother will be fine." Gee, thanks. I might need a few extra cc's of the Botox. Because I will be known as Glam-Maw one day...

GRIFFIN= HATES SHOES. WHAT??? Doesn't he know who I am??? Geeeeze!!
He loves being outside, climbing, jumping, and being wild. And Banana Pudding Milkshakes from Chik-Fil-A!!!
He got a bounce house this week for an early birthday present and Paisley got a scooter and a bike and 3 new princess costumes. Is it Christmas? No!!! I will be pushing drugs until the end of time!!! HA!!
Here is my little love bug!! I could eat him!!!

Love you all!! I will draw for the Likewise and The Dave Ramsey books on Friday!! And Stay Tunes, some great Easter giveaways announced soon.....
