Luke loves his new baseball helmet.

Reese was very concerned about the children in "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang", but still looked cute in her red bow. 

What most of my days look like :)

And afternoons!

I am very very slowly working on making some of these. I may or may not be sharing with you the finished product depending on how they turn out.

Happy Tuesday!

What's been goin' on

Things haven't seemed to slow down at the Johnson household yet, although I am looking very forward to a lazy and fun summer. Here is some of what has been going on. 

Teeball was so much fun this year and we can't wait for next year!

My little fisherman caught a bunch of fish before the tornado came right over our street. 

This is right after the tornados hit. 

Our street used to be completely covered in trees, so many that you almost couldn't see the sky when standing on the road. There are definitely no more trees or homes for that matter.

Our boat in our neighbor's back yard.

Our old house. Now there is just a foundation. 

Our neighbor's home. Remember I said that there were so many trees that you could hardly see the sky? Well this is what it is like now. 

Another neighbor's house completely gone after all of the debris was cleaned up. 

Reese is checking on the bass boat to see if it still works.... no luck even with her cuteness workin' on it. 

Keeping a look out for some Boykin's a few houses down. We can't wait to get one soon :)

Art on the lake was fun because all of our family was there!!

Luke graduated from Kindergarten! I can't believe he will be in 1st grade next year. 

All the boys on the Twins got a trophy and medal at the end of the season party. 
Coach Blake made these awesome home plate picture frames with 3 different pictures of each player and the team. It was so cool. 

Being the team mom this year one thing I was in charge of was the party. I made a Baseball Pinata at home from newspaper and flour and water and a big balloon. It was messy and fun and lasted a lot longer than I thought it would. 

That's all I got for now. See you soon :)

Happy Birthday Grahammy Poo!!!

This is a very special day. I am married to the reason that makes this day so special. Although he said to me last night a lot of crazy/bad things have happened around his birthday, it has nothing on him. 

The Lord has blessed me so much to have allowed me to be with this man for almost 12 years now, both in our dating relationship and our marriage. He puts up with me and I don't know how, but I am SO SO grateful :) He has taught me many things over these years and I hope I have had the same impact on him. God has truly blessed both of us.  

He is a better dad than I could have ever imagined and is loved more and more every single day by Luke and Reese. He is my rock and loves the Lord. 

This past weekend we celebrated his birthday at the lake and he said he wanted smoked chicken and a crappie cake. I knew exactly what he was talking about. He definitely got his wish because Graham, Luke, Taylor and Jay caught 15 crappie and a catfish. 

He spent a few hours cleaning all of them and we are eating them tomorrow night for his birthday dinner since he is working. His forearms were so burned!

He is definitely still SO good lookin and has been since he was little. Graham and my cousin David were great buddies and played soccer together when they were younger. David was like an older brother to me and was so protective and would not let me date anyone, but Graham. Thanks David, I owe it all to you!!! 

He is the best uncle and will surely be teaching them all sorts of great and crazy things as they grow, even the furry ones. 

He was SO cute as a little boy! And that is obviously an Atlanta Braves hat ; )

This picture completely cracks me up and I'd love for Annie to tell us what he is doing. He didn't like "mixed up food" aka casserole's or "nohdles" so he must have found something that he did like. 

Happy Birthday my love!!! Me encanta tu!!!
And just for kicks, here is the song for your listening pleasure of what I would sing and put on repeat and drive my family crazy listening to when we first started dating. 

Can I get an AMEN for this stud!!!

I moved to NYC.....

for an extended weekend :)

A couple weeks ago I received an early birthday present from my parents. It was a plane ticket to see my little sis, Riley, in NYC! Boy was it fun!

Reese is modeling her new super-stylish outfit from New York City. I loved the little white sailor pants and wish they had them in my size. 

When I first got there, 2 hours late thank you plane delays, I met Riley and some of her co-workers for Happy Hour. It was so great to put some faces with names and meet all of them, they are so sweet!!

Then we got a cab to go to her apartment and I found $5! What a great start to the trip, haha. 

We dropped my bag off and headed to Brother Jimmy's for some grub and had to get a pic of the Auburn flag proudly displayed on the ceiling. Karaoke started soon after we got our food and we left, too tired to tackle karaoke that night :)

The next night we headed to Diablo and it was so delish!! So cool on the inside and I'd recommend anyone going there and trying the Mango Margarita, it's got a little kick to it and is so delicious. 

Brunch at (i can't remember the name help me Riley!) and then we headed off to shop till we dropped and just hang out in the city. Riley had to work for half a day so I ventured, alone, to Century 21 and around that area and met up with her later. 

Then we went to a really cool place called The Smith and I loved the interior of it and didn't have my camera so I didn't take any pictures. It was her friend Katie's birthday so we had a huge group of 13 girls. I'll never forget that night and we made some super fun memories that we'll only talk about when we are 50 :)

Our 30 second stop in Times Square was tourist packed and I understand why people who actually live in NYC avoid it like the subway at night. Of course we had to fight our way through there to go to the 5 story Forever 21 and then headed home to chill out before I had to get back to reality the next day. 

I miss RiRi so much and had the BEST time with her. We are going to make it an annual trip and I can't wait! Thank you for having me and putting up with me Riley!!!! Love you!

I love New York City. I am so excited to be going back in May for the Stationary Show to represent Sweet Pea Designs. Although that trip will be more work than play, any excuse to even be in the city is one I'll gladly accept.
