We went thrifting (which is really what her and these girls do a lot of while they are off camping) but if I am honest, it is a bit new to me.
Once I got over my fear of scabies (which is real... even at work-- I have a serious fear of scabies) I had so much fun.
I may have even scored a few vintage pieces-- that I love. [and my husband is sure to hate]
We found mom the perfect blue sequined gown and a matching over-the-top mask to wear too. (A way cooler one than Maddox is sporting in the picture... I hope she takes pictures on her trip, her outfit is great!)
I hate that she won't be here, ringing in her 50th with us...
but I can't blame her....
Madi Gras with girl friends sounds like a blast!!
While we were out having girl (plus Beckham) time...
Lance and Maddox were cruising the gun show together.
They had a daddy/ son lunch at Mexican Inn and then met up with us at the mall.
There, I ran into a fellow blogger-- and got the chance to say hello in real life!!
[I shook her hand, like an idiot, though-- if I had a re-do, I would have just hugged her. I kept saying, "what girl, shakes another girl's hand?! Was that weird?" Lance and my mom said it was okay... but I'm an over-thinker.]
We got home to snow and 3 sweet cards from my Nana!!
How cool is that?!
I'm sure the snow on the ground will be gone by morning, but the Valentine's Day cards will be "read" again and again by the 3 year old.
My Nana has always sent cards for the in between holidays, however I always forget about it until we get the surprise in the mail... and then it is so exciting again.
Maddox loves cash, but like his momma-- he can't wait to save it!
It has already made it into his piggy bank. (Beckham's too... until he is old enough to tell us otherwise.)
Today was a good day.
Before I tell you good night, I thought I would share the lost pictures on my camera from the last couple of weeks.
From the 2nd day Stock Show pics that I never posted, to the boys....
I hate to leave them out...
So here goes!
I'm off to snuggle my husband.
Tomorrow he turns in his uniforms to a job he loves... for a job that will make his family more money.
He hates change, and this is a huge leap of faith for us.
I pray that this will be the best decision for my family and that Lance will be happy.
I hate to see insecurity on Lance and it is written all over him tonight.
I love him to pieces... and by him making a tough decision like this, its obvious the feelings are mutual.
