My Cuddler

My little one is quite cuddly when she first wakes up from her naps. She wakes up slow just like her Momma and tends to be a bit wobbly and quiet until she gets her second wind.  I happened to take a nap on this particular afternoon also so when I heard my little one's voice calling me over the monitor, "mommee, cominggg," I decided to go get her and bring her back to bed with me.  I was also trying to wake up and she was only too happy to snuggle up under the covers with her momma while we watched some Mother Goose Club and Wiggles on Youtube.

Sometimes in the moment I don't realize how much I will appreciate a picture but, I think these are really sweet and I'm glad my hubby snapped them for me.  Daisy is only looking at the camera because Daddy asked her too.  She's a well trained camera kid as you can imagine with a camera being stuck in her face since she was born:). lol. 

Hello gorgeous day in North Carolina!! The temperature is in the 60's today!  Middle of February and I swear it feels like a Southern California Spring.  I'm in Heaven.  I was sitting outside just a moment ago soaking up the sunny rays but, the glare on my computer screen brought me back in.  So now I have the door wide open and the breeze is blowing through the house.  I can hear the neighborhood kids playing outside and it feels so peaceful.  Quiet and peaceful.  Oh, the quiet part is only because Daisy is taking a nap right now.  She'll be up in the next half hour or so and then my hubby's sister, Jessica is moving in with us later this afternoon.  She'll only be staying with us for a couple of months until she finds her own place but, I am looking forward to the distraction that her company will be and happy that Daisy will get to see so much more of her Auntie.  Plus, I think Jess and I are going to challenge each other to run at least a few times a week and maybe crank on some P90x.  The P90X is her idea not mine.  I did a 15 minute warm up and was dying so we'll see how that goes.  Anyways, looking forward to getting in shape with her the next couple of months.  Hopefully, the exercising will kick in some happy endorphins and help me combat this funk!  I'll keep you posted:-).  

The hubs completely took down our master bathroom shower door and all the metal railing as it had gotten quite gross over the past 4 years.  He's scrubbing all the parts outside and re-sealing all the pieces with fresh caulk.  That is a nice little project to get tackled!  I am also having him scope out crown molding and bead board at Home Depot today to see if we might be able to keep cranking on our guest bathroom DIY.  I can't wait to show the before and after to you when it's done...probably another month or so!  After the bathroom we will start tackling our dining room.  I haven't really done a thing with our dining room since we moved into this house nearly 4 years ago.  It's funny to me that I am such a passionate decorator but, due to limited finances I never get to decorate.  Well, I'm determined to change that so stay tuned:-).

Hope you are all having an absolutely wonderful weekend!  I watched a little bit of Whitney Houston's memorial service live today and it's carrying on like an awesome church service.  It blesses me to see God being such a big part of her service.  I really was so sad to hear the news of her passing.  I was a big fan of Whitney Houston growing up and I especially loved her music in The Preacher's Wife movie.  I pray that she is dancing with Jesus now...I really do hope that for her!
