Morning at the Fair

So I met some other moms & their preschoolers at the South Plains Fair on Friday morning @ 11am. They had free admission before 1pm, so I thought…perfect! Well it was opening day & not only did they have only ONE building HALF full of animals but the rides didn’t start until 1pm, hence the free admission until then:( so we tried to appease the children with the informational booths & vendors (w/o buying anything) until then but ultimately breakdowns occurred & we had all had our fill & therefore were heading out about 20 minutes before the magic 1pm. I’ve semi-promised a return trip with Daddy in tow sometime this week but we’ll see what the week brings! In the meantime they DID have a few baby chicks for kiddos to see & Addyson was brave enough to hold one so enjoy the semi-blurry pictures!

Fall=Allergies for Justin :(

So I have officially moved to sleeping on the couch due to the extreme sounds coming from the other side of my bed…and no they’re not “good” noises! The allergy bugs have definitely hit our home now therefore causing me to loose even more sleep than normal 😦
Ok, time to stop complaining & try to get some quiet sleep now πŸ™‚
Good night all!

Happy Anniversary to my little sister & her awesome hubby!

Two years ago today (on September 21st) I witnessed my sister all grown-up before my very eyes. I can not express the feelings I had as I helped her (along with her AWESOME friends) get ready to marry my now AMAZING brother-in-law! I love you Laura & Devin and I can’t wait till you come visit us in less than a month!!! Happy 2nd wedding anniversary!
