WHAT-I'M-LOVING-FRIDAY!

You want to TRULY know what I love????

1) MY BABIES...Arrow pointing down.......I could eat this picture. The two things in this world that we made. I look at this and I see the love I have for Stephen. And why marriage is sacred. And children that are innocent that I adore. They are the only things in this world that make a crummy work day worth it ALL! They are both so different and they love each other SO much....makes my heart nearly burst when I see them love on each other.

I feel like Steve Martin in Father of the Bride (remember the scene when they tell each other they love one another the night before Annie's wedding?)



For those of you that are trying to conceive and and can't, please know that I am praying for you. And okay,okay. I will stop before you all quit reading and barf on your desktop.
Mauri, thanks so much! I love you and your passion for photography!



2) SUMMERTIME! We have been doing lots of water activities outside. It is really too hot to do anything else! HA! Lots of popsicles, grilling out, planting flowers, slip and sliding, bounce housing, etc. etc. I truly love summertime. Best time of the year! Besides Christmas!




This picture makes me sad. My little baby is growing up. TEARS from Mama....


3) LIVING in NASHVILLE....

I have to admit....we live in a pretty fun city. There are ALWAYS activities going on, and LOTS revolves around music. SO FUN! This weekend alone was Bonnaroo and CMA Fest/Fan Fair.


We went on Sunday night and listened to a pretty great lineup.


Hootie and The Blowfish's Darius, The Band Perry (who I adore)....


'


Taylor Swift who is so cute and beautiful, but bless her heart. She cannot sing to save her freaking life (FLASHBACK: Grammy's with Stevie Nicks)


And these two were fantastic. They truly are Loretta and Conway. GREAT PERFORMERS!

And I will say it ALOUD. Blake Shelton=HAWT HAWT HAWT.

Blake honey, I will be your Honey Bee ANYTIME. I kid. I kid.


4) HARRIS TEETER EXPRESS LANE.

Sorry for those of you that don't have a Teeter close by. THEY HAVE ONLINE GROCERY SHOPPING!! All you do is pay $1.95 for all summer services, and they grocery shop for you!! Yes, you read that correctly!! You just click online what you would like, pull up in your car, push the button, and they bring it out!! They also do coupons! THIS IS A MOTHER'S DREAM COME TRUE!




5) WEIGHT LOSS.....FINALLY!!!!!




Mama is at 18 pounds down!! I am so thrilled!!! Thank you God for Atkins. I am always successful on this diet. Because I get full!

A sample day:

Breakfast:
Scrambled eggs
Turkey sausage
OR
Atkins Chocolate Shake

Snack:
String Cheese
Atkins Bar

Lunch:
Salad, with meat, cheese, dressing
OR
Hamburger, Chicken with no bun and Coke Zero ( I usually add cheese to my sandwich)

Snack:
red peppers dipped in guacamole
white wine (1 small glass)

Dinner:
Shrimp, Chicken, Steak
Broccoli or Spinach
Salad

Dessert:
Nothing :)
Carb Smart Breyers Ice Cream
or a sugar free Chocolate pudding cup.



It is hard but it is working!! I am SO excited. Mind over matter....


6) DATE NIGHTS TO NEW PLACES!!

Nashville has a new Brazilian steakhouse. I cannot wait to try it out!!


7) GOING HOME TO MY PARENTS NEW HOUSE....

Look at this little future sorority girl :)
8) SHOPPING: I will get this bag one day. I DREAM ABOUT THIS ONE NIGHTLY :)
The Louis Vuitton Alma
9) QUALITY TIME AS A FAMILY OF FOUR...

These pictures are from my phone, so I apologize that they are fuzzy. But I love the fact that my husband is home ALL week. It makes my life so much easier. Plus, I love him and after 6 years, I long to spend more time with him now than I ever did.

This sweet thing is my soul mate...



We have not turned the TV on in a week (Okay, I did watch Extreme Couponing and Toddlers n Tiaras. I mean, MacKenzie was on, I had to tune in!) and we have been outside riding bikes and playing games. I love it. Family time is so fun and rewarding.

I hope you are all having a great week. I love you all and Happy Father's Day to all the daddies out there!

XOXO-
KJ

Congratulations on your weight loss. Keep it up. It's so worth the end result. Also I thought I was the only person who thought Taylor Swift couldn't sing. She's terrible. But like you said, bless her heart because she does try.

I love catching up on one of my favorite family's/sweet friends life! Way to go on the weight loss and so glad Steve has been home, so much easier! I want to eat Griffin's face. Paisley definitely looks like a future Ole Miss Delta Gamma to me! :-) love y'all!

I was also at Sunday night's show and we left right before Taylor Swift came on because we know she can't sing live! It was a great line up! Didn't you love that Miranda's mic stand was a fully operational shotgun rifle?! With a hot pink microphone! Love it!
