Mixed emotions!!

So we put our very first home on the market to sell. I'm excited & sad at the same time!! This has been an emotional roller coaster for me! This was the first house James & I bought a month after we got married. I brought both of Babies home to this house. So many memories have been made over the last 5 years here! My parents (built in sitters) live 3 houses down too. (where I grew up since 2nd grade) I can stand on the sidewalk in front of my house and my mom can stand in front of her house and Cori can run between houses. It's been SO nice to live so close. My mom is very upset about the sign in our yard and is trying very hard to keep her cool with me. She knows that we are not moving because of her. Our neighborhood is wonderful, and cozy and everyone knows everyone. Unfortunately, after an ISD rezone, we got stuck in some not so great schools within the ISD. I can't even begin to think of Cori attending the schools, and I almost fainted when I started calling for prices on private schools. We knew when we bought this house that it wasn't going to be forever, but five years sure did come quicker than we expected. We still have 2 years before Cori starts school but we have no idea how long it will take to sell our house. Wish us luck - we are hopefully headed to a better school district.

Mother's Day

My Mother's day was plane and simple, just the way I like it!! Cori woke me up at the butt crack of dawn remembering that it was Mother's Day! She ran to her back pack to get the cards she and Levi made for me at school. 

Miss Janie Loves my kids, she got them together to take these pictures and spent her own money to create this card and have it printed. I was so happy & I love it. This one is now at work with me! 

My first squishy hand print from Levi James! 

Cori colored, cut & glued this (with help) just for me!! 

I get this SAME piece of paper every year from Cori - I can't decide if I like it b/c I can compare the hand prints each year, or if it annoys me b/c they can't photo copy another saying for Mother's Day each year.
(okay, I'll quit complaining!) I love it. 

The rest of the day was spent hanging around the house, mostly outside in the pool. It was a perfect day and I am so blessed to have my babies!! Here is a awkward picture of us on Mother's Day!

10 on 10 May

My 10 on 10 has potential to to be extremely boring. I sit at a desk from 8am-5pm so instead of boring you with  work stuff all day, I've revised my 10 on 10. It's not 10 consecutive hours, but 10 life happenings throughout the day. Take it or leave it Ü (I hope you take it) I do this for fun, but I have no idea how to link up to the main site.....

Let's get busy @ work!!

The view from my desk.

Lunch Time!

50 Shakes  of Grey!
I love you Christian Grey!!

Bank Run - if it could only stay 80

Picking up my boo's from daycare. The blond is Cori's BFF, Brianna

McDonald's for Dinner (lazy mom night)

James cutting the yard before the storm - we are so lame...
We have had a yard guy for the past 5 years and a few weeks
ago, James decided to buy a we fight over
who gets to mow each week. We both enjoy it! 

8pm - My Dad's mini tree farm. He grew those trees from acorns that 
fell from his big tree. These are about a year old, but doing well! 
I can't wait to plant one at our house!! I love special things like this! 

Cori & Pawpaw (my dad) watering the plants they planted together.
(yes, in an old bath tub)
We are so lucky to live 3 houses away from my parents. 
My kids get a lot of time with their Grandparents!!

Levi & Cori with their Yaya. 
Again, so lucky to live so close!! 
Did you notice this was picture #11 - yeah, I was never good @ following rules!
