Show & Tell!

11:26 AM

1. Tell us your favorite baby names? Aside from your own babies, if you have some :)
Well my babies names of course Kennedy, Kensley; love Madelyn! If we were to have had a boy our boy names were Maddox & Carter! I also love the names Lennon & Lennox!

2. Show me your "dream" nursery {can be your baby's nursery or one that you love}
I really loved Kennedys {now its a toddler bed, soon big girl room!}! Kensleys isnt even done....OPPS!
Honestly there are so many that I love I couldnt narrow it down! Here is Kennedys:

3. How many children would you like to have? How far apart?
Oh I would love to have 5! But you take what the lord hands you & he handed us two beautiful little girls!! They are  16 months apart!!

4. Tell us what you think the importance of parenting is?
Oh geez. What isnt really? Each day I am learning something different that I want to instill in my girls. I am learning new way of doing things, & in general im just learning; I am just 22 months into this momma thing. But really I just want to teach them to be the BEST they can be. Be people they can be proud of. I really think your children reflect parents & they are the best part of me. I hope to teach them good morals, manners,to stand up for what they believe in & to be a ladies!

5. Show us your favorite newborn photo {can be your children or random} 

6.  Tell us some things you promise to never do as a parent {and if you are a parent, did you stick to it}
Hahah so many!
1st: no TV til 2, We did the first year with none, but now? with 2 under 2; we are big time toy story fans over here!  So guilty. 
PJs to the grocery? Now im only guilty of this once & they were super cute jammies with matching slippers. But I used to HATE seeing kids in jammies at walmart. Grant it in our town that was usually a too small tshirt no shoes with a full diaper on, but still. & hey she had a matching bow, that makes it ok right? ;)
I know growing up there is so much I would use the infamous "I am never going to do this to my kids" & somethings I wont, but for the most part? I loved the way my parents did things & I WILL be doing alot of the same things! Just dont tell my mom I said that ;)

labor day weekend

11:58 PM
This past weekend we had daddy home for THREE straight days, we haven't had that since Kensley was born & before that? probally since Christmas! It was needed for me & the girls!
On Friday I had my Matilda Jane Trunk Show! It was lots of fun & alot better success then I thought it would thanks to lovely ladies I have met on the boards & on IG!

Theres a local car auction that goes on every year that gets pretty big, lots of fun stuff to do & we always love going to the auction looking around & going over to the swap meet, i love love love finding vintage finds! I found the cutest blue granite blue tub for a photography prop, $3!!
So Saturday we woke up early, got a quick muffin with our best friends to see DOC HUDSON. {from cars}
& headed over to "meet" doc

Then we were off to the auction...

The girls spent alot of time doing this..

& we just walked around look at lots of cars!

Then kennedy woke up & was intoxicated by the helicopter that was giving rides!
As they would come to land she would get SO excitied, it was also VERY loud; tho she was way into it she still helf on to me not wander to far off from my leg. Just watching with the biggest doe eyes. I love that she is gaining such independence but still not too much that she still finds comfort in me.
We braked for tantrums, & big trucks!
 I dont think this will ever get old...

Sunday & today {Monday}
We went new mailbox shopping, which was surprising more challenging then i expected!
& finally crossed "plant flowers" off our summer bucket list.
Im craving fall so bad I was so excited to get mums!

Overall a great long weekend, we are sad to give daddy back to daily hussle & bussle! But glad we had the time we did with him!
Back to our routine, which mean I got to get to bed for Toddler Tuesdays in the morning!
What did ya'll do on you long weekend?
