This & That

Grayson had to go to the eye doctor this week and she said his eyes are perfect! They checked his eyes while he was in the hospital and this was a follow up appointment since he was a preemie. Not a preemie by much but still a preemie. I started a new Bible study at church and this is what we are reading.  These tote bags are beautiful!!  I placed a large print order of some 4x6s that I took with my phone in 2016. I need to get them in a photo album. I'm a big advocate for getting pictures off your phone! I only ordered pictures that were taken before Grayson was born … I'm not finished reading yet...

Long Lasting At Home Manicure

at home gel nails

Good afternoon! I am sharing a DIY beauty post today!!  I don't claim to be a beauty blogger but I do have a minor obsession with all things beauty..... in case you didn't know. I love doing my nails..I actually find it relaxing! I would rather do my nails than go get them done. In fact, getting my nails done is a rare thing. I get pedicures more often than I get a manicure. I kind of hate sitting there not being able to do anything with my hands (use my phone) which is why I am more likely to get a pedicure. With that said, about a year and a half ago I started doing my nails … I'm not finished reading yet...

Urban Legend Chocolate Chip Cookies

Urban Legend Chocolate Chip Cookies-Chocolate chip cookies with extra chocolate make for a delicious cookie. I'm a firm believer that you can never have too many chocolate chip cookie recipes. In fact, I have another recipe for chocolate chip cookies I am sharing soon. For now, lets focus on these urban legend chocolate chip cookies tough. These cookies take me back to the days of attending RLC, a community college a few miles outside of our hometown. I have a bachelors degree in special education but I took what seemed like a lot of extra English classes to be able to teach English … I'm not finished reading yet...

Check them out here, here and here. I love … I'm not finished reading yet...

I'm slowly getting caught up with This is Us but I know what has happened to one of the main characters already.

I finally uploaded the rest of Grayson's birth story. I've had it finished for months but I needed to clean it up and decided three parts was better than two. You can read the first part here. Grayson was fitted for a helmet a couple of weeks ago and he started wearing it on Tuesday. Since he was stuck in an uncomfortable position in the womb and then spent five weeks laying in the same spot … I'm not finished reading yet...

Welcome Baby Grayson-A Birth Story- part 3

Part 1 here Part 2 here Almost 24hours after Grayson was born I finally got to see and hold him. I had never been in a NICU before and the one Grayson was in holds around 130 babies and there were 130 babies in there. It's a very sad place. We washed our hands and put on our gown coverings and then Jason led the way to Grayson's "spot." He was one of many babies in a very large room on one … I'm not finished reading yet...
