Trailerhood style!

Here is a glance of my trailer style! Trailer style is not normal style. You want to be cute for yourself,because no one else is going to see you,but you want to be comfy. So I try to wear comfy shirts and relaxed pants or shorts or capri. Very relaxed easy to chase a tot in!!!! I LOOOVeee CANTON First MOnday Trades day! It's all good in the trailer hood raglan tee by My Tiara Fits! They have a booth in canton Texas it's one of my absolute favs I have a ton of shirts from them! They do different holiday ones. The shirts are super soft and super comfy!! I can throw on some pearls jeans and my boots and hit up the town with my girls or the hubs or just relax with some comfy lounge pants at the la casa!! The camo pants are also from canton but idk where I got them!! I had these originally in a capri and wore them with boots and they were super cute then summer came and I cut them into shorts!! So now I have these pants and I will soon purchase another pair for capri! Camo is super cute and this girl adds a little bling and makes it all the better! I did wear flops with this because the weather is nice today!!!I am frequent First Monday Shopper and love every mile of that place!!!! It comes every month and I only miss a few months a year!!!!

Maybe I call this a TRAILER WEAR THURSDAY!!
Bad Blurry pic but I have to use what I have for now. Maybe show this to my Love and ask him how am I supposed to have a respectable blog with pics like this!!!! I need a CAMERA dammit!!!!

Tot, Pot and trailer.... part 1

We have had a very small victory today, but at this point ill take any no matter how small. My little tator tot is 21/2, and I have been trying this exhausting battle called potty training since he turned 2. When he was about 18 months, something freakishly came over him and he was using the potty to poop, well he was telling me that he pooped and we would go to the potty and he would finish doing his buisness. It happened like 3 or 4 times and maybe at that point I should have pushed it a little more, but he was my baby and I wasn't ready for that. Well what a freaking dummy I was. This FYI to any soon to be or current tot moms, if they start to tell you no matter what age, GO WITH IT!!!!!!! I could cut my legs off for not following through! Anywho, so we are passing this bridge now and my little VICTORY is that we have been in BIG BOY underwear for almost 4HOURS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I CANNOT believe it!!! I am sooo looking for the downfall though! Ill keep you posted on how this goes. I say part 1 but I don't know of how many!!!!

As I was writing this I saw the dreaded look that every tot has when its that time and then I knew it was to late!! We mad it 3 hrs and 45 min. He pooped in the big boy underwear.


Elmo needs to start working a little faster!
Happy Wednesday

A Women walks in a Bar.....

Today is 3 years that my Love and I have been married!! It all started on a cold, windy, rainy day and it ended with two people together for life and ever after.
     Here is a recap of how it all began. I met my husband at a bar. Yes, that's right, I found Love at a bar. I know that your told when you are young, and running wild trying to find romance and love, that you will never meet a man at a bar. BUT yes you can!!! My best friend in the whole world introduced me to Jamie that night and we have been together ever since. That was 6 years ago. We rocked along in this dating world, we hit a curve here and there but all in all we had a great relationship.
    When we started to get serious, I had one rule. I clung hard to this rule to keep me safe from danger. It was, 3 years is all you get. What I mean by this is that he had 3 years to decide if this relationship was the one that he wanted for a life time. Now, of course I already knew this was what I wanted so that's why I left it his decision. I think its a good rule. Three years is long enough to get to know everything that you need to know about someone. I did not mean that we had to be married in that three years, I meant that I needed a major commitment.(Engagement) So, with that said, we hit a rough little spot at about the two year mark,We DID NOT BREAK UP! I am very firm in that breaking up does not make anything better. You have to fight through it with all you have and never give up if its something you LOVE!!!!! It took us about 3 months to get through this rough curve, but we did. The day after Thanksgiving in 2009, I found out I was pregnant. I didn't know how I felt at the time. I was happy, yet I didn't want to be this girl that gets married because she was pregnant, and I definitely did not want to feel like that was why he wanted to marry me. I knew that I loved Jamie and that we were going to be fine. Sometimes god gives you a push. I know this was our push to build this wonderful life that we have now!!! In December, he proposed, and I accepted. I do have to stress this, because this was stressed to me, JAMIE DID NOT PROPOSE because I was pregnant. He had already been planning this and had a ring picked out and was soon to purchase it. I was told this by my SIL (sister in law) and BIL. They knew how important this was to me and wanted to make sure that I was aware of Jamie's previous plan. With out further delay I planned a wedding in two months and we were wed on February 26,2010!!! Although I was a pregnant bride, and that  was not what I had planned, nor was it what God had planned he knew this was a marriage for the ages and sometimes he throws you a curve to make sure you can get through it!!
My Love, My Life!

It has been a wonderful three years together so far! I would not change anything that got us to this point either!! My being pregnant was and is a blessing.  We have a wonderful son who has brought so much joy to our lives. I Love Jamie more and more everyday! To see him grow as a father is an amazing site!!!

It was such a wonderful Wedding!!

My Mother, my ROCK!!!!
I think you can find love any where, you just have to have an open heart!!!

Texas skies!!

One of the things I love about traveling is all the different Texas skies!!! To see a sunset like this back home is non existent. Oh don't get me wrong the sunsets at home are beautiful they are just different! Full of tall pine trees as far as you can see on most places and lots of rolling hills!!! I love how close it seems we are to the sky here also! The stars seem so close at night that I could just grab one!!! If you have never experienced the Texas sky at some point you defiantly should!!!!

Happy Sunday!!!

Life in the Falls....Witchita Falls that is!

       With a new year brings us to a new town! Our first stop is Wichita falls, Tx!!! What a nice town this has really turned out to be. I don't miss home so much here because, well it really feels like home. Its probably my fav town yet. We parked our home on wheels at a little spot in the Coyote Ranch Resort, It is a GREAT park and def a RESORT! It has a wonderful playground for Atley, and a Jumping pillow! Which I had never heard of, but is the absolute funnest thing ever invented for a child! Way better than a bouncy house, I think anyway! This park has amazing pull through sites,  and electrical poles. As wacky as that sounds, its really nice to be able to go outside at night when you have to check your pipes or hoses or electricity and the pole has a nice light on it!! You can see in your yard and don't trip over everything while you fumble around. They have cabins you can rent and super nice laundry facilities and showers. Our water froze about the third day we got here and busted a lot of the tubing, that we had to get replaced. Mind you this is a brand new trailer we just got in October and we already had to do major work to! Anywho, we had to use the showers and it was nice to know that you were not going to catch a funk in there!
     I think I have spent more time here than I did when we were in South Texas and it was a much farther drive. We are taking Atley to the Monster Jam truck rally that is going to be here next weekend, March 2nd, and he doesn't know and is going to be soooo super excited. He is sooo boy and into anything that is big and load! Just like his dad, who is also sooooo super excited to be going!
     I found a gym here with child care that is super nice! Atley loves the childcare here.  It is a struggle for me to start being healthy and stay on that track. It's no ones fault but my own, but having a schedule is hard when you travel all the time. I can start a routine in the trailer and then we will go home and it screws everything up!! I am trying to just push my self threw it but finding the motivation is a very difficult task. But ill just take it day to day!!
     Here are a few pics from around the trailer hood! I have a very funny video of Atley on the Jumping pillow that I will post shortly!!

This is the WONDERFUL play ground they have!! Probably the nicest one I have seen. Even at schools!! He was so proud when he could slide down the big slide all by himself.

Big boy going across the bridge!

For Atley's Bed, this trailer had a couch that folds out and has a storage compartment for like blankets. Well we converted that in to a bed cubby for him and he loves it!! So much that he dumped alllll of his toys in there! lol

About the second week here I found this little guy frozen in Robots, our boxer we adopted, bowl! After that i put mouse traps everywhere!
Thanks for reading, and Ill post more on our adventure soon!

A little crafty through Christmas!!

So this CHRISTmas I decide to make one of Atley's Santa gifts. He LOVES to cook and play kitchen and help me so I thought, thanks to some ideas from pinterest, that I could make him a stove out of some old end tables that I have! I have a problem of not taking before pics and I need to work on that totally and maybe some steps along the way. But for now I just have an after pic! This one turned out soooo cute that I decided to make my niece one for her 2nd birthday! Because I have a boy whenever I make or create something for him I am usually limited on what I can do but when I do things for my nieces I get to go all out! Needless to say Bella's is AMAZINGLY the cutest thing EVER!!!!
So this is my little guys kitchen! He loves it so much! I got him some stainless pots and pans and some cups and bowls and he goes to town! When I did his I put the pail on the side because I didn't think that I would be able to have the oven drawer and I wanted that for sure.
Of course when I make the first of anything I always think about the things I would do differently!
This is the sink side with a towel bar.

This is a top view! I did a few things different and I want to change Atley's up now.

This is the oven side with the stove top and burners. I loves that I got to use a cuter nob also. I just stapled on the material after I sewed the the hems!
I love be able to craft and come up with different stuff to make from old things we have around the house. I can't wait to start on my next creation and I will for sure take before, during and after pics!!
