My Last Few Days

Just a little bit of what's been going on here in the South over my last few weeks here, staying with the M family !!! 

I had to take a little more of the South with me to TN. These Chicken Man / Ernest Lee Paintings make the perfect addition to our home sweet home. There's not one the same and I have built quite the collection. Although I didn't realize all three of these are some shade of blue till I got home. At least they look great!!! The picture really doesn't do them justice, he's such a talented artist. 
A few weekends back Sarah, her family and Myself went Strawberry picking at the local Strawberry Field. We ended up picking two large buckets full of Strawberry's. That doesn't include the handful's after handful's that we ate while picking. Come on we couldn't help ourselves, they were magically delicious. 
This sign is me made all over!!! I found it at a local shoe store of all places. They had a few other household decor items but this was my favorite. Describes me and my life in the South to a T. Only I don't have a little girl I can dress in cute Smocked Dresses or Big Beautiful Bow. But when I do, you can bet for sure she'll be dolled out in Smocked Dresses and Bubbles every day!!! 
This is going to look perfect in my new kitchen!! 
Bought this beauty off a Designs by Micah, Inc. FB page. You can take the girl outta Texas but you can't take the Texan outta the girl!! Wearing it proudly supporting the Rangers and remembering my Papa James and were I came from!! 
Need I same anything about this picture at all?? Like I said the yellow plaque above is me made all over. Monogram everything and more!!! Absolutely loving these monogrammed pocket T's!!! 
Lunch date with this beautiful momma. I had sweet lil E in my class last year and I'm so sad that I won't get to see baby M at school this coming up school year. Can you believe she had a baby just a month and a half ago?!? She beautiful right. A and I got really close last year when E was in my class, I loved getting to know her and Big E. They are the sweetest most adorable family ever. I've enjoyed spending time with them and watching their family grow. I know we'll carry our friendship forever. Even though we won't see each other every day or even talk every week, A and her fam. will always have a place in my life.

This little dude Graduated Kindergarden on Friday. I've watched him grow over the past 3 years into such a handsome young fella. If I could take one family from the South with me to TN it would hands down be these little ones. I'm going to miss them so much, my heart breaks just thinking about having to say "See You Soonly" to them. I spend just about every other weekend with them and to all of a sudden not be able to see them every day at school and in the evenings when their momma and dad go out is just gut wrenching. Thank goodness for fb, insta, and FaceTime, still it won't be the same. :(
 Life as a MiliSpouse, def. #bittersweet.

So many cute southern things! You can still find a lot of those things here in TN. And just look at it as a new opportunity to meet even more kids!
