Three Things

I love, love, love these posts!
I first saw these from Andrea @ Momfessionals, and they are for sure my favorites! I love seeing how we all change and grow!


1. The child is a rebounding machine! He's under-sized most of the time, but he works so hard to get good position to grab that basketball. I don't know how he manages to get so many rebounds, but he does.
2. He's motivated like none other as far as his school work goes. Popow offered him a nice prize if he can maintain straight A's for the remainder of the school year, and he's determined to get that money! This mama says whatever works!
3. He craves alone time! He loves his brother and sister so much, but he LOVES being alone. He enjoys the peace and quiet that he's not used to!


1. He has the biggest heart ever. He is quick to make sure that every one he loves knows he loves them big!
2. He is always all over the basketball court. Whether it's a big steal on defense or a bigger assist on offense, he's in the middle of every play for his team. He's such a good teammate that is constantly willing to do whatever is needed for a win!
3. Middle child syndrome is a real thing, and we are dealing with it big time! He's emotional & whiney, and it's just not his normal thing. He's really trying though to work through this season. Sometimes he's the annoying little brother, and then sometimes he's the bossy big brother. A lot of his middle child issues stem from loving too much!


1. She's five & fabulous! I think 5 is going to be her jam. Everything she does is 'because she's five years old now.' She's officially ready to start school & add extracurricular to her schedule because #biggirlstatus.
2. She's officially half-way through her reign as Tennessee's Overall Tot, and I think she's starting to realize that she's going to have to give up that title soon. She's soaking up every moment!
3. The baby is working so hard at writing her full name, and y'all, we messed up by adding letters to an already long name. She's determine to get it though!

{JOE & ME}

1. We just celebrated our 12 year anniversary, and it was just what we needed.
2. Life is in no hurry to slow down, so we are having to make time for just communicating. It's not easy, but it's definitely worth it. He's my best friend, and I just love his input in everything!
3. We are planning a nice little getaway for Spring Break this year, and I cannot wait. March is how many weeks away, again?!

Happy Thursday, y'all!

See ya tomorrow for Friday Favorites!



  1. Yay for a Spring Break getaway! That will be so much fun! I loved reading an update on you all!

  2. Oh gosh, my son has such middle child syndrome too!

    1. It’s a real thing, but they are normally the sweetest ones! :)

  3. Yes! I love these posts as well. It’s been a while since I have done one. I may need to change that. Way to go Stephen on your basketball skills and academics! Keep it up. I love Carson’s big heart! Mason is the same way and will tell you a million times a day that he loves you and even little reasons why he loves you! They’re going to make great husbands one day. (but let’s not think about that for many, many years) Nataleigh is a doll! I love that she is Tennessee’s overall tot! That’s awesome. Happy 12 years to you two! What an accomplishment! We are trying to plan a Spring Break trip as well. Where are y’all going?

    1. We are heading to Edisto Island, SC. It’s one of the southern a Charleston islands, and I can’t wait!

  4. I love these post!! It will be so nice for you guys to get away for few days. I am also ready for Spring Break!! We have 56 days until Spring Break :(

    1. But who's counting?! HA! I'm hoping for a couple of snow days between now and spring break, and I know my kiddos are also! :)
