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!!!
