Takeya Giveaway!

I love to make homemade lemonade in the summertime.  I received this AWESOME lemonade maker from Takeya USA a couple of weeks ago and I think it’s pretty snazzy.  Let me show you how it works….

The lemonade pitcher comes with an attachment that filters out all the seeds and lemon pulp.  All you have to do is screw in the top piece and “voila”!!!  I’ve always loved making homemade lemonade, but hated messing with the seeds and all the goop that comes with the process.

Press the lemon down on on the strainer….
Look at all that GOOP!
And there you have it!  A perfect pitcher of lemonade with no seeds, pulp, or mess!

Miss Avilee-Newborn Photo Shoot

My sweet friend Jenne let me take some photos of her precious baby girl tonight!  It was my 2nd time shooting a newborn and I think they turned out decent.  I am not a professional photographer by any means but I do love taking pictures 🙂  Thanks again Jenne – she is an angel!


CraZy Storms!

This is what Connor thought of the weather last night!
We were playing outside before all the madness began.  We got some heavy rain and hail, but for the most part it missed where we live.  I HATE this time of year…is scares the poo out of me!  All these storms around the country are so scary.  I feel so bad for all those who are hurting, who have lost loved ones, and possessions.  My heart  aches for them & I can’t imagine losing EVERYTHING you have!
Connor is so silly, he just runs around with his tongue wagging……

He has got QUITE the personality these days 😉

Here is a pictures of some of the hail outside our front door.  I think the biggest we had was around half dollar size.  I know a lot of other folks in the area experienced much larger hail than we did.  Can you imagine the car insurance claims/home insurance claims that are going to be made today???  Yikes!

So I’m back at work this morning and the sun is shining….looking forward to a three day weekend in Arkansas with family and friends.  Also ready to get the big 3-0 out of the way 😉
Take care everyone and be safe!

Messy Side Bun

I tried my hand at a messy side bun this past weekend.  It turned out “okay”.
I just looped it around a pony tail holder and then used two bobby pins to secure it.

What do you think?

 I was inspired by these looks :
Have ya’ll tried this look before and how did it turn out?
