7th grade is going great so far for caroline. she’s pretty loaded up on homework but doing a great job of time managing her schedule. she’s on an all star traveling cheer squad, middle school ministry at church, leadership on a student led campus ministry and throwing down all advanced classes. sadly this means i don’t get to just “hang out” with her as she’s mighty busy. and just the other night she informed me that i no longer need to wake her up. she’ll be using her alarm. i beg your pardon? baby of the family, i will totally continue waking you up each morning. what? does she think she’s like 12 or something?

 ordered a few goodies recently from etsy. you can find them here & here.GT game opener

dan took madison to Georgia Tech’s season opener. how cute are they?


i’ve been trying to get emily to run with me. for years. the run or dye rolls through atlanta and all of a sudden she’s a runner. ( love the dude’s face beside her. he’s probably thinking. whoa. she’s sorta crazy with being a dye overachiever). it’s too bad she just never has any fun. maybe if she could just come out of her shell a little bit….



madison loves the british. and she loves cosmetics. so throw in a US tour by Butter London’s global colour ambassador, katie hughes and she’s there. we grabbed a couple of madison’s friends & went for a quick make over. daughters are so fun!








thank you flower patch farmgirl for the read rec. i’m loving it.

while we were in guatemala the score of the century was the huipil bag. hello coolest bag ever. i may have come home with more than one. or two.


local friends, the 1910 Public House is super yummy, very trendy and down the street. i’m so excited to not have to travel into the city every flipping time i want a yummy meal at a trendy spot. well done 1910!

Betsey - Hi all,I’m so jealous! Al Ain looks and sounds wonderful-I can’t wait to hear all about it and to see more pire/ctsuvideos. Much better than the inches of snow accumulating in DE-ugh.
