music is my solace


I know this is truth.  There are so many songs that come to mind right now, but I am too busy to type them all out. 

Work is still insanely busy.  That's a good thing, because I have a job to come to, that pays me.  Not complaining, I just miss my outlet here.  I miss you...

You can get addicted to a certain kind of sadness
Like resignation to the end, always the end.

Manic Monday - {on a Tuesday} with Quotography to top it off!

{because it is just that manic!}

I don't think we realise just how fast we go


until you stop for a minute


and realize just how loud and how hectic your life is,

and how easily distracted you can get.

The {Pre-K} Graduate

Graduation is only a concept. In real life every day you graduate. Graduation is a process that goes on until the last day of your life. If you can grasp that, you'll make a difference.
~ Arie Pencovici

{Well looky here!  There you are, baby girl!  A Graduate.}

My dearest Layla baby,

Yesterday you embarked on the beginning of what I hope is an incredible educational journey.  We celebrated you yesterday!  All that you have accomplished and learned since beginning at this wonderful Day Care Learning Center more than four years ago.  It seems as if only yesterday I was leaving you as a tiny baby to return to work.  That was a very hard day for me. 

And look at you now, kiddo!?! 

Every caregiver/teacher you had throughout your duration at this school, loved you as if you were apart of their family.  And you were!  That place is like family to us and seeing all of that coming to a close is hard for momma.  But I know they have provided you with knowledge and early life lessons that will make Kindergarten a breeze for you.  For all the love and tenderness they gave to you when I couldn't...I am forever grateful. 

Mommy and daddy are so very proud of you.  We look forward to your future with great expectations!  We love you with all that we are. 


p.s. As distinguished as you were at your Graduation tickled me to no end to have you end the day like this...

At the height of laughter, the universe is flung into a kaleidoscope of new possibilities.

I feel like I'm drowning....

Of course not literally, but figuratively speaking.


You know when everything around you feels like too much?  Yeah.  I have that going on right now.  Between everyday life.  WORK.  Home life.  Work.  Layla graduating pre-K on Thursday.  {my girl!}  And work.  Yeah.  Me.  Water.  Under.


The one thing carrying me through, helping me float along in these rapids, is that loooooong weekend we have coming up. 


I am holding onto that for dear it is my life preserver. 


Yep.  Barely.  Hanging.  On.

Manic Monday - 05.21.12

To love and be loved is to feel the sun from both sides.


~ David Viscott

*My front side got too much sun this weekend.  The back side?  Not so much.  Ain't life grand that way.  :)

for the love of Phillip Phillips!!!

I've got a major, cougar lil girl crush!  Yes I do.  *giggles*

His name is Phillip.  Phillip Phillips.  *giggles*  Isn't he handsome?!?

You should see him move. 

{he's got those moves like Jagger}

Yeah, he just does it for me, in a very Rob Thomas kind of way.  Even with his funny faces and the non-stop moving feet of his!

Plus, he made it to the Top 2 of American Idol.  {yes, I still watch.}  I'm jazzed.  *jazz hands*

For him?  I'd be a cougar!!!  Yes I would!  *big smile*

Enjoy your weekend and do yourself a favor and listen to some of my favorite jams of his...and thank me later!  by sending Phillip to my house

**UPDATE**  American Idol website/embed codes are screwing with click on the links.  I promise it will be the highlight of your weekend.  Perhaps, your month.  I am very serious.

miscellaneous May favorites

I've snapped some random pics this month.  {I know, what's new?!}  But I am gonna share some with you.

This is an old vacant cement factory with cool grafitti throughout...I'd love to capture a family photo shoot here.  With the right kind of family.

Seriously!?  Who wants to take a ride in the Banana-Mobile?  I know naners would!!!  Seriously awesome.  We could "peel" out!  Ha.

This is my friend, Tara, and her boisterous daughter, Tyler.  I love how she is planting one on her momma!!!  Makes my heart swell.

The purple {Dina's favorite color} balloon we released for Richard's mother, Grandma Dina on Mother's Day.  Rest in Peace, we miss you endlessly.  Your presence is missed more than words could express.  But you live on.  Layla talks about you, like she knew you.  But you know this....

And you know I can't get a post in without sneaking in one of my Boo-Bear!  I just love her lop-sided braided buns in this.  This is love, my friends.  THIS is love...

Hope your May is being kind to ya!

for all the mommas and those like em....

While I started typing up this post on Thursday before Mother's Day, it just never received that "publish" botton.  I hope you all had a glorious weekend full of love, hugs, kisses and more.

Now I want to share this with you....The Love of a Mother Poem...

A Mother's love is something

that no on can explain,

It is made of deep devotion

and of sacrifice and pain

Pinned Image

It is endless and unselfish

and enduring come what may

For nothing can destroy it

or take that love away


It is patient and forgiving

when all others are forsaking,

And it never fails or falters

even though the heart is breaking


It believes beyond believing

when the world around condemns,

And it glows with all the beauty

of the rarest, brightest gems

It is far beyond defining,

it defies all explanation,

And it still remains a secret

like the mysteries of creation

A many splendor miracle

man cannot understand

And another wondrous evidence

of God's tender guiding hand.

Addison's 5th "Candy"-licious B-Day Par-Tay!!!!

Layla's BFF, Addison, turned 5 a few weeks ago!!  {Um, blow me away with a feather!!!  eeek!!!} 

But this past weekend it was celebrated with a super sweet CANDY-licious birthday party at The Bake Shoppe and Cafe in Cypress, Texas.  This place was soooo uber vintage chic and fun.  I could go on and on...but I will let the party and the decor speak for itself.  I was in HEAVEN!!!!  And so were the kids. 

I mean LOOK AT THAT CAKE!?!  I think I know where I am ordering Layla's!!!

Seriously...that cake!!!  It was yummmmm-meeee!!!!

Just check out the quirky signs and decor...

{National Sarcasm Society - like we need your support!  ha.  priceless.}

{me too and that's a problem.}


{I do!}

{I don't!  bwahahaha}

{love this, especially that witches shoe! Oh, and the fact that this is their bathroom.}

{I know that's right!!!}

Fabulous, huh?!?

But you know what the most important fabulous item of the day was?  Definitely celebrating this...
