Happy 3rd Birthday to my little lovey!!!

I can't believe my little guy is 3!! ( Well he turned 3 in July. I am a little behind on my posting!) What a wonderful birthday he had with so many friends and family that showed up!! He has really started getting into monster trucks this year. We took him to a Monster Jam while we were in Wichita Falls and he absolutely loved it!! So of course when asked what kind of birthday he wanted it was a Monster Truck Birthday!!! I think everything turned out fabulous!!!

His big birthday surprise was a "jumpoline"! He was really excited when he saw daddy bringing it out!!


I order his cake every year from a local bakery. They do an AMAZING job every time I am never disappointed!!

Sweet Trevor came to visit!!

Being a little shy so MiMi was giving him a pep talk!!
Lots of friends and family!!!


Blowing out his candles!! getting so BIG!!

Love my little family!!

Home again, home again!!!!

We are finally home for a few weeks. The job in Cleburn has finished, for us anyway! I am sooo happy to be home for some summer time. We bought a small pool so we can beat the Texas heat. The hubby is trying to get on a line that is running right next to our house! Literally right down the road. The hardest thing is waiting to get a call that he can test. In this world of welding it truly is about who you know and if a boss doesn't know you he may not test you!! So we hope and pray that a spot opens up and we have done all we can  for the boss to call us first. We shall see but for now I am going to enjoy the home time.

Since being home I have started going to the gym again. I am super happy to be going it makes me feel great! I have a goal to reach and a date set to get there. We decided this year instead of taking a summer beach trip that we would take a winter trip to Vegas for the NFR. (National Finals Rodeo) So with that planned and booked I now have 6 months to get my booty in gear and in shape!!!

I had a request order for a camo themed diaper cake. I love to do diaper cakes. They are so super cute and easy and make a great d├ęcor addition for any shower and or nursery. I use a box of 96 diapers to make a 3 tier. Most people like to keep the cakes together for a while so I use size 2 diapers. I also do not add anything extra except for maybe some lotion and wash. I do this because if the want to keep it together then its kind of useless to put all the extra stuff in it.

Excuse the mess in the background. This is my craft room and is not fully organized yet. I used natural burlap ribbon with baby blue ribbon followed with camo duct tape on the top and bottom layers. For the middle layer I used green burlap ribbon with baby blue ribbon on top and the stuffing on top is plant moss. For the "B" on top I painted the sides and the inside of the letter and then covered the rest in the camo tape.
Hope everyone has a GREAT Wednesday and say a prayer we get a call for the next job.

Potty training complete!!!

I am proud to announce that we are officially POTTY TRAINED!!!!! I could not be any prouder!! It was a bit of a battle but its done and it feels great!! although I did think that once we were potty trained I would be done with poop, and that is so not the case, but at least the poop goes in the potty first and I am just the clean up crew!! lol The pooping has been the hardest part of this whole experience, and I have no idea why?? I started doing treats and prizes and that has been working GREAT!!!! I am still giving treats and will continue until he just goes on his with out having to tell me!!! Whatev works!!!

This is what his surprises were for the first 3 poops! He got a new monster truck. This is his obsession right now so it was a great incentive. After he got those then he got to pick a sticker or fruit snack or marshmallows. Anything that he loves to snack but only gets every now and then I used for treats!!
If you notice on his sweet face he has a bad booboo!! He had an accident with a  bumper car and the concrete on the car port!! It was AWFUL and we now have a dead tooth because of it!!! It healed very quickly and with no scaring though!!!
Meet BAby Trevor Dean Peirce!!!
My best friend in the whole world finally had her new baby boy on May 6th! We have been waiting for this day for soooo long it was so surreal that it was even here!! He took his precious time at coming too. She pushed for 2 hrs before they finally decided to do a C-section. When he finally arrived he was the sweetest little thing. He was 7lbs and 20in!! Just perfect!!!! I just love him soo much and I know he and Atley are going to be the best of friends!!!!!
He was the tiniest thing!! I never got to hold Atley being this small!!

Getting closer to East Texas


Our job is on its last stretch!!!. We have moved from Weatherford to Burleson Texas now and our next stop is home. Just in time for the start of summer and then we make the decision of where to go next!! My hubby got moved from the firing line back to tie ends which is great because we get to finish the job. I love when he gets on tie ends it is totally job security!! The only down fall is the long hours and working 7 days sometimes. I am totally looking forward to a few weeks at home with all of us!!

Daddy and the tot on Easter!! We had a great Easter with lots of family and egg hunts!

Atley and I went home for a week or two and his friend Christian missed him dearly!! It was so nice to have another family right next to us so Atley could have a play mate!! They just left Burleson to go home since the job was done and Atley doesn't understand where Christian is and when she is coming back!! Hopefully we will run into them again one day on another job.

The Texas heat has hit and so we got the kids a pool and of course in trailer park style we blew it up and put it in the front of the trailer!! lol they loved it! It was def better than the bucket of water we had given them to play with the day before!

Relaxing Trailer trash style!!

I got my hair done AGAIN!!!! I have to change it up every 7 wks!! This time we added a little more purple and some fun green!! I LOOOOVE my hair girl she is the absolute best!!!

Southern Jitney's
Ok the time has come for me to introduce The Southern Jitneys!! Three of my gf's and I decided we wanted paint my husbands bus, of course he made us buy it first! lol!! Anywho, we wanted to get it ready before Antique Week in Round Top, Texas! We busted our arsses, but we finished it in the nick of time!! We might have done some detail work on the way up there but it was complete by the time we got there!
I have more pics of our adventure and the inside of the bus, but I think I am going to do one big post on that later. However, I will tell you that the Junk Gypsy momma and daddy got on our bus and the Junk Gypsy sisters put a pic of the bus on their IG!! So maybe the bus is kind of a BIG DEAL!!! lol
Here is my JG Junk-o-Roma Prom outfit that I loved!! I got the skirt in Warrenton last year and the jacket I bought from the JG's this year!! It was SOOOO cold and I totally did not pack a jacket!! OH and the fabulous hat I got there also!! We had soooo much fun I can not wait until October so we can go again!!!
I could sooooo dress like this everyday if the weather permitted!! lol The gaudier the better!!!! lol
Lots of love The traveling wife and mommy!!!

I have totally missed a few of these since I said I would do it , but Ill get better, please forgive me!One outfit  is a little fancier than the other, I was spending the day with my mom and we were going shopping the other I was just making my way around the new town! I absolutely live this shirt. I got it at Baskins in Witchita Falls its by Gypsy Soul!!! My wonderful friend Megan took me to Tesky's here in Weatherford and it is AMAZIng!!! Omg I could have stayed in that store forev! They have Gypsy Soul there and I wanted every piece!!!! Maybe ill go grab something else before we leave this town!! Lol speaking of towns I am living in Weatherfordnow! The construction is very sucky but the town is nice! What makes it even better is that my friend Megan and her family live here and she is going to push me to the gym! Lol literally! So hopefully we will be her for a while!
Excuse the mess!! Its hard to monuver around the bedroom in the trailer! Anywho Here I put the shirt with shorts and flops!!! I loveeee this shirt its so comfy and thats what trailer style is about cute and comfy!!!

Here I paired with a pair of NY and Co Jeans that I roled up and some cute sandals I got last year at Shoe Carnival I think! And of course pearls in which ever color!! I could have layed 3 more strands! The more pearls the better!!!

We are staying at the KOA and it's ok! We got like 3 complaints the first day we were here which kinda pissed me off but I wasn't here to see ho they were coming from!!! The trailer spaces are super close together and that makes for NoOO privacy but at least we know our neighbors and the kids have a small area to play in!!!
Hmmm I guess that's it for today! We are heading home for the weekend!! I have a huge surprise I am going to post next week!!! Me and some girls are heade to round top for antique week and we are dokie g some crazy things to prepare!!!

Goodbye Falls with a BANG!!!!!!

My husband is a welder, so we move around a lot! Well a lot is an understatement! Last year, aside from my home home, we lived in Victoria Tx, Thackerville Ok, and San Antonio Tx finished out the year. So far this year we have been in Wichita Falls Tx, and now we are in Weatherford Tx. I have only been there 1 day technically because I had to come home. Oh the joys of coming home! Our yard was a WreCk because of all the storms that have come through and wiped the trees around.  I previously wrote about a tree that we had to cut down and thought we could save the other, but we are going to have to cut it down also! I hate to see the trees go. Since we looked like some white trash going on in the yard so I hauled the tree limbs away! This was sooo not an easy task but I did it anyway!!! I do a lot of things to take care of the yard since the hubby is always gone! I do the outside work as well as the inside! I don't mind for the most part because it needs to get done! I am super excited that mowing season is coming up because I LOVE to mow the yard. I can make it take as long as possible and its some great time to myself.

Christie my SIL, Kelly and her daughter Savannah and myself of course!

 Now with out further ado I bring you Ran, Dierks and Lee!!!! Some of my girls come down, well up, and we went to the Locked and Reloaded concert with Miranda Lambert, Dierks Bentley and Lee Brice ! It was Fabulous! We had such a great time. I absolutely love Miranda Lambert. Her being from Texas makes it even better! I am a HUge Texas Country fan. We had pretty good seats I guess. This was the first concert that I had been to that a lot of people didn't stand up and get off their butts to support the artist!!! Lots of older people and young kids in the stands and the younger adults on the floor (maybe we should have been down there). When I say young kids, I mean like 7 and under! I have no prob with bringing kids, I do have a prob with people just sitting on the arrsess!!!  I did not let that stop me!! I had my 2 tall Beverly's and I was feeling fab!!!

2 BIG Beverly's!!!
Me and the SIL
The Concert!!!!
Lee Brice
Dierks doing his thang!


I absolutely loved these pics!
Sing it girl!!

This is Talent!!

Well that pretty much sums up my time there! I am now closer to home which is nice because I get to go home more! The downside is I leave the hubby for a bit!
Have a great week,
The traveling wife
