lovey dovey

I love my family!

I am a wife, mother of three beautiful boys, and a middle school administrator. At times, I have mistakenly tried to achieve perfection in each role. These attempts always fail miserably because there is no such thing as a perfect wife, a perfect mom or a perfect worker! I decided to relinquished my pursuit of perfection…I can say without guilt that my shortcomings are vast and my mistakes many. Embracing my imperfections and turning my life over to God has been freeing and led to a sweeter life. I found that when I quit trying so hard, that SOMETIMES things magically fall into place and for brief moments I am “Supermom.”

The 4th

Don't you just love the 4th of July?  The fireworks, the food, the fellowship.  Last year we had friends over and this was our Independence Day decor.  I've been so busy with summer school, working on Parker's nursery, and getting ready for our beach vacation that I haven't even decorated for the 4th yet.  Maybe I'll do that tonight, baby willing! 
I use the coke crate all the time on our bar when entertaining.  I have a green one that I use most often.  I put small mason jars in the slots to hold silverware, napkins, etc. 

All that was missing was the apple pie!  I got this "American's Creed" picture at Goodwill for $1.  I use it year round in the boys sports/American flag themed room. 

Sorry this picture didn't turn out better.  This was our entry way.  I used old military photos of my husband and my grandparents.  My grandfather brought back four little cloth napkins that say U.S. Army on them that I used here as well.  I topped it off with the "Home of the Brave" sign I borrowed from my son's room. 

Ok, it's official...I have the 4th of July decorating fever.
