Weekend is for family!

This weekend was a much needed one for sure! Friday was supposed to be Caleb's field day at school but it was raining... no it was POURING! I had taken a vacation day and decided to just stay off and enjoy the rainy day at home. It was actually very peaceful and I loved every minute of it. 

Friday night we went to watch our nephew, Landon, graduate from pre-school. It was a cute and a quick little performance and we were back home within an hour tops. Case and I did a quick change of clothes and we were back out the door, this time without the boys, to meet up with some friends for dinner and chatting (the guys played pool instead of sitting there listening to us ladies gab away). I am so thankful for our date nights. Our schedules get hectic and I really cherish the time we have together without the kids... our marriage comes first, always has and always will. I really feel like it helps us be a better couple, better individuals and better parents. 

Sunday we were supposed to have a family cookout and swimming at our house but Casey woke up SICK SICK SICK! He never is sick. I think he has been sick maybe 3 times in the past 4 1/2 years we have been together. He actually didn't wake up at all Sunday, he woke up long enough for me to load him up with medicine and he fell back to sleep. He was saying his ear was hurting and this throat was raw and he tossed all night because of the pain. I drugged him with a sleeping pill and he was out for the next 12 hours... in that time, Dynamite Dax (our little monster child) managed to bust his lip open, bust his chin open and cause me to have an emotional break down!! Caleb was NEVER like this as a baby/toddler... having a wild child is all new to me! Like as I am writing this I hear crashing from the playroom but no one is crying (yet) so I am going to continue to ignore it. 

I do have to say I am thankful the cookout was cancelled because I wasn't tempted to eat off my meal plan. Actually my meal plans have been crazy this week/weekend. I have been meeting my macros but I haven't really had a plan per say. We are kind of in the stage, "find whatever you can in the fridge and make a meal". So I came up with a breakfast quesadilla, it was actually really yummy! 

By Monday, Casey was feeling a tad bit better, or at least better enough to get out of bed. We stayed home and let Caleb swim and Dax and I even joined him. My sister in law, Sarah, and our nephew, Landon, came over and we fired up the grill at dinner time. The water was still a bit chilly but it is on the verge of warming up!! Come on Summer, we are ready for ya!

My closet was a MESS, clothes everywhere, and I couldn't find my bathing suit top so I just wore the sports bra I had on. Hey, it worked! I am really digging my new chair floats we found at Aldi for $5.00!! I can see many summer days spent in these chairs in the pool... maybe next time I will have a drink (or 2) in my cup holders!! 

We ended the weekend with me using the grill for the first time ever! I am pretty proud of myself too. I grilled up chicken and asparagus for this week, as well as hot dogs and hot links for my boys. I did drop some asparagus in the grill but oh well, I am a newbie at this...And let me tell ya, the chicken is SO juicy and yummy!!! What is your favorite thing to grill?

Kindergarten Graduate

Tuesday Caleb graduated Kindergarten!!

(My sweet  husband won us 5 reserved front row seats and forgot to tell me, so the day before the graduation Caleb's teacher told me and I was so excited!!) 

This is the day I have been dreading all year long... it means that my baby boy is growing up (way too quickly). The awards started at 7:45am... that means I had to take time off work, and I already work part-time so the day ended up being a vacation day for me. Casey has the mornings off so he was able to come with no problem, Grammy Joy came with us and Caleb's Dad, step-mom, brother and sister showed up as well.
(Class of 2028!!!)

Funny thing about Caleb, he loves to be the center of attention (just like his momma) BUT when he gets in front of a crowd of tons of people he doesn't know, he gets very shy (not like his momma). The entire performance he was hiding his face and laughing...

I am so glad that Clint, Caleb's dad, was able to attend. We don't have the perfect relationship but we agreed a LONG time ago that we were going to do the best we could to make sure Caleb never felt like he had to choose between us. That we would be cordial to each other so there is no tension at events and birthday parties... and we agreed that every year we would take a mom, dad and Caleb photo... he deserves that and it is just a few minutes of our time. I know he cherishes his photos like this!

Can we stop and talk about this amazing woman?! She has been a life saver this kindergarten year. I couldn't have done this year without her. My favorite memory is when I was sitting in the Target parking lot on the phone crying, bawling, sobbing my eyes out because Caleb was struggling with reading. She sat there and reassured me everything would be okay. She has been sent from heaven and loves my boy so much! Paige, thank you for being you!!! And thank you for letting me be your room mom, I have loved every party and task I was able to do!!

I do have to say, I didn't cry as much as I thought I would. I did cry though. My big boy is headed to First Grade... at a new school! I cant wait to see what is in his future.

Caleb Scott, the world is yours kiddo and Momma is SO very proud of you. I love you my little chubba bubba!!!

To the people who dread Monday, I am sorry... I LOVE Mondays! Why?! Because it is a fresh start to a new week! A week that could hold so many different possibilities. Yeah, the going back to work after having 2 days off part kind of sucks but I am trying to be positive and instead be thankful I have a job to go back to work too...

I don't mean to toot my own horn but TOOT TOOT!!! This past weekend, I stayed on track 110% with my workouts and eating. I am so proud of myself. April was a tough month for me and I kept going back and forth to being motivated and wanting to just throw in the towel and eat my weight in foods. Sunday the 15th I had some fast food that I had been craving and actually made myself sick from eating it. The next day I was in the bathroom all day long (and so was Casey, he had the same foods) and I felt horrible. I decided then and there I was done, I wanted to feel good again. That Monday, I made it MY Monday. Last week I gave it my all and stayed focused and I am proud to report, I am starting to feel much more like my normal self again!!

Can we chit chat about this dude for a bit?! Oh I so proud of him. He will be ONE on June 14th (hard to believe huh?) and we have started transitioning him to sippy cups and whole milk... we started last week and he is already done with the bottle and formula. He has been drinking transition formula at morning and bedtime but other than that he is drinking water, watered down juice and whole milk out of his sippy cups! It did take a minute for us to find a sippy cup he liked but we finally found one and we are sticking with it.
He is a cute baby but OH so stubborn! I tell him no about 2,000 times a day and he will look at me, laugh, point his finger, baby talk at me and go back to what he was doing. I will move him to the opposite side of the house and he will crawl right back to where he was. Last night I was working in my Mom Cave and he was trying to get the trash can under my table. I kept telling him no and moving him away. Finally he stood up holding the edge of the table and reached for the trash can and when he did he slipped and hit his head on the edge of the table, then on the concrete floor and then got up and crawled to get the trash can and as soon as he had it in his hands... he started crying! Oh this kid... Praying this heals up before his birthday in a few weeks!

Speaking of his birthday, it is a pool party at our house so we have been working on getting our pool in order so everyone can come over and swim. The last owners left us a Polaris 360 pool vacuum and well, it isn't working... Casey is determined to get this thing to work so we don't have to fork out the money to buy another one! They aren't cheap! This is what it currently looks like... eek! Fingers crossed the updates he has made to it this weekend will get it working again because the handheld vacuum we bought isn't the most fun thing to use!

My friends on my personal page already know this but I figured I would share it with you guys and gals too... I am starting a vinyl decal Etsy page! It isn't up and running just yet, but it will be very soon. More details to come later and I can see a lot of fun giveaways coming too... stay tuned!
I am ready to tackle this week, to stay on track with my food and my workouts and I am ready to take my end of Phase 2 Muscle Building photos this weekend. We have a hectic busy week ahead of us so my gym schedule has changed but it is what it is and I am going to make it work no matter what...
Tuesday - Kindergarten Awards
Wednesday - Muffins with Mom
Friday - Vacation day at work for Caleb's Field Day
Sunday - Family Cookout at Our House
Monday - Memorial Day!

I hope you all have a wonderful Monday morning and remember instead of hating that it is Monday, try and find the joy in today... I promise if you just look hard enough you will find it!

Pretty Proud!

The past couple of weeks I have been struggling to stay on track. Actually the whole month of April really threw me for a loop. I had started my first phase of Muscle Building and my macros were raised by a lot. I trusted the program and ate all my foods and lifted all my weights. At the end of the 4 weeks, I hadn't lost a single pound but I did lose inches and really that is what matters.

(Outfit from Ollie Marie - Roller Girl Jeans & Dory Top)

But to me, the scale matters too. I am still a good 20-30 pounds away from my goal weight and I still have fat to lose. It is easier for a smaller fit chick to say the scale doesn't matter, but for me it does. If I was to go to the doctors right now, he would weigh me and would talk to me about getting my weight down just a little bit more. So it really is a rock and hard place... it matters but it doesn't. This was messing with my head SO much and by the time I completed the 1st phase, I was ready to throw in the towel. I felt so bloated and so defeated.

May started phase 2 and in phase 2, you lower you macros... and I did just that. The first 2 weeks were rocky because I would slip up bad on the weekends with my food. I would miss workouts (at least one each week, if not 2, and I half assed most of them) and I was basically throwing myself a pity party. This past weekend I ate my heart out and Sunday I decided enough was enough. I was going to get back on track during week 8. I am pretty proud to say, I am right back on track now! I made it to the gym every day this week even with having a sick baby at home and I have logged all my foods and stayed on track 100% with no cheats.

I weighed this morning and I am down 1.6 pounds (a new low) from last week!! My plans this weekend is to stay 100% on track, workout tomorrow morning, work in the yard this weekend, and Sunday have a relaxing rest day (maybe I will try out a yoga class). You guys, I am 10 pounds away from the 175 goal I wanted to be at Dax's first birthday... which is in 3 weeks!!!!

Monday starts the last week of phase 2, I will be posting start of Muscle Building to now photos and stats on Sunday the 29th.

I mentioned that I had a sick kid... well little Dynamite Dax (he has been a wild child this week) was bit by something on Saturday near his eye. It swelled up so big by Wednesday and that night he had some green junk in his eyes. I washed them out and put him to bed. Thursday morning he woke up the entire house at 3am screaming bloody murder and wouldn't go back to bed until 4:30. It was brutal. When he woke up again at 6:30am he was screaming again but this time he had a little bit of a fever and his eyes were crusted shut!!! Poor baby boy!! We think that maybe the thing under his eye got infected and that's where the green junk was coming from, his body was pushing it out however it could get rid of it. This morning his eyes were clear and the bump is almost all the way gone. Thank goodness!

Now we start the fun part, weaning him off bottles and formula. Say a prayer for us!

Big brother played hooky yesterday... we are teaching him life lessons on how to ditch school, yes we are awesome parents (haha)! With Dax waking us all up and then we finally were able to go back to sleep, Caleb didn't wake up until well after 8 and it was pouring rain... his school is about 20 minutes away (that is without Fort Worth traffic and bad weather) and I was in no mood to get on the road... so he stayed home too! Casey had to work, which he usually has Thursday's off, so it was just me and the boys. We all took a nap from 2-4:30 and then 5pm it was sunny and we needed out of the house. I took them up the road, bought Caleb an sno-cone... he really enjoyed it and told me he is ready for summer so everyday he can stay home and have sno-cones! Oh the life of a kid...

Let me leave this blog by saying Happy (early) Anniversary to my In-Laws!! They have been married for 17 years come Saturday and this is a picture of them with (19 year old) Casey on their wedding day. They have set such a great example for our marriage and we love them both very much!! Happy 17th Anniversary, here is to many many more!!

Pink Impact

This past weekend I had the opportunity to attend a woman's conference that is put on by Gateway Church called Pink Impact. I actually won the tickets from 94.9 KLTY's Facebook page!! My best friend, Mandy, was able to attend on Friday with me but due to her kids schedules, she wasn't able to attend on Saturday so I was able to share the weekend with another friend, Amber. It actually turned out perfect and I loved every minute of it.

I have talked about #ProjectJordan and how I have been in kind of a rut lately. I feel like I am standing still and everything around me is going 90 to nothing. I feel like I have worked so hard for so many years to have this "dream" life and I finally have it but I don't know how to make all the puzzle pieces fit. Being able to go to Pink Impact really helped me understand some things about the season I am in right now.

One speaker, Charlotte Gambill, talked about circling. Sometimes, God wants you to circle. He wants you to listen, obey and not speak... and just keep circling until the time is right for you to march ahead. She compared it to being in a plane for hours and hours and when you finally get to your destination, the pilot comes over the speaker and says "we are going to circle before landing". Here we are screaming that we just want to get off the plane and ready to land already... but what the pilot knows is that if we go ahead and land the plane now we will be landing in traffic on the runway and it will end up damaging our plane as well as the other planes on the runway waiting for a gate.... so we continue to circle until it is safe for us to land.

Hearing her put it that way REALLY opened my eyes to the season I am in right now. I feel like I am on this plane ready to get off and enjoy my life and I can see my "dream" life on the ground below but we are making circles instead of landing. I ready to enjoy my life, not that I am not enjoying it now, but I am ready to figure out how the puzzle all comes together. I am ready to get off the plane and feel free again.... maybe this sounds like jumbled up words to you, but it makes perfect sense to me!

To be REALLY honest, Friday night when I got home Casey and I had a HUGE fight. I mean H-U-G-E... HUGE! It left me not wanting to go on Saturday. I was up all night crying. I had a headache and the last thing I wanted to do was go and praise God... I knew that I needed to go and I was excited to see Amber, so I went, headache and all. Let me just say, I am SO thankful I did go.

Saturday was probably my favorite day of the conference. Charlotte Gambill spoke again and when she started to speak she said she was going to talk about the story of Naomi and Ruth. If you aren't familiar with this story it is about a mother in law and a daughter in law, the son and husband passed and Naomi (mother in law) told her daughter in laws they didn't have to come with her, she was going back to where she was from. Ruth insisted she was going with her no matter what. She said "Don't press me to leave you or to turn back from following you! Where you go, I will go; where you lodge, I will lodge; Your people shall be my people and your God my God. Where you die, I will die there I will be buried. May the Lord do thus and so to me and more as well if even death parts me form you." Ruth 1:16-17.

The reason I bring this up is because this is the bible verse that was explained and spoke at our wedding, it is the verse that is written on the ring I gave Casey after our miscarriage, it is the verse that is written in our bathroom on the wall... it is OUR verse. Like I said, I am so glad I went on Saturday after fighting with Casey on Friday night. I needed to hear this message and be reminded that Casey and I are a team and we are in this together. That we need to set each other up for success and we need to be unified together. It was an amazing message!

Then Kari Jobe came on stage (one of my favorite worship leaders ever) and talked about her sister's miscarriage... which of course had me sobbing like a baby thinking of my own sweet angle baby! Even leaving in tears, the day ended way better than it had started and I am so thankful I was able to win those tickets and spend this time with 2 of my lovely friends.

Sunday I woke up being okay with circling. Being okay with standing still. Being okay with just being in this moment of life. I woke up feeling like in a way this is a new start to this season of my life. I have been so beat down lately, wanting to give up on my workouts, wanting to give up on my eating, wanting to hide from my kids (no joke, wondering what life would be like if I wasn't a mom right now), not take the time to lift up my husband, not putting the effort in with my friends... and now I feel so much better about it all. I have to keep pushing on and keep circling, circling doesn't last forever and one day I the plane I am on will land and I will be able to fit all the puzzle pieces together... but until then, I will continue to circle!

Hectic is my life

Life has been getting more and more hectic with summer approaching. I am ready for it though. I am ready for Caleb not to have to go to school every day because that means I don't have to go pick him up every day... It wouldn't be too bad if pick up didn't mean it was an hour commute (with traffic thanks to our move, we didn't move him schools) and it didn't fall right around Dax's nap time! Dax LOVES his sleep and sometimes he will sleep until close to 4pm and sometimes he is up at 2:30pm... It makes pick up unpredictable and so much "fun"... thank goodness Caleb goes to an afterschool program!

Another thing making life hectic lately is the spring storms we have been having! We are in the middle of working on our yard and getting it ready to plant some grass. Our front yard looks like Arizona, nothing wrong with Arizona yards except we are the ONLY house in the court that looks that way and we stick out like a sore thumb. There are so many rocks and ugly bushes we are having to get rid of. When it storms we are stuck inside watching the weeds get watered. Ugh!! The only plus side is that the rain is softening the dirt around the bushes and making them easier to dig up. Speaking of... our garbage men must HATE us! We have so many piles of bushes to be picked up each trash day... and that is not even counting the tree limbs that the storm has been knocking down and we have to cut up and set on the curb! I am ready for the storms to pass... but mostly so this boy will stop climbing in bed with me!
I have been trying to fill our extra time in the afternoon with play dates with friends instead of being glued to the TV. Or we have been using our imaginations and working on projects around the house. It is kind of hard to do with Dax but we found that if we strap him into the stroller and give him my iPhone he is usually content for about 10 minutes. Yesterday, Caleb and I worked on a Lemonade Stand for one of my best friends daughters who wanted to sell lemonade this weekend. I think it turned out cute for not having any plans and using scrap wood and paint I found in our garage!!

The pool has become a life saver to me and I know it will be used a LOT this summer! Caleb has learned how to swim really well and is mostly self taught. Our patio now has a table and chairs and it is covered (it even has a mister attached) so it is nice to be able to sit out there, swing Dax on the porch, and watch Caleb burn off some energy in the pool. I have even braved the water this week. I haven't been able to get more than waist deep yet but it is warming up so that's a great sign! Come summer, I will be a mermaid and never want to leave the pool... eek!!! 

Four years ago today, these 2 guys met for the first time and they have been best buds since then! Casey has become such a great remodel for Caleb and someone he truly loves to look up too. Last night he built a jail out of Legos and when he came to show it to me, he said "take a picture of this and send it to Casey..." he wasn't come to show me, he was just using me as the middle man to show Casey. It was cute! I adore the bond these 2 have...

March 30th I weighed in at 188.4 pounds since then, my weight has been yo-yoing back and forth from that to 195.0 pounds. I have been adding in more carbs and lifting more and I know for a fact I have been losing inches... but seeing the scale jump around so much really bothered me. I know the scale doesn't matter and no one knows what I weigh unless I tell them... blah blah blah... but to me it does matter, I like seeing that number go down. I am still about 20 pounds away from my goal weight so seeing it yo-yo and bounce around was kind of disheartening and I really think that is why I started to struggle and get discouraged some. I hate to admit it but it is the truth. Today when I stepped on the scale and saw a new LOWER number, it reminded me that what I am doing is working and I need to just trust the process... easier said than done!! I am still shooting for 175 by Dax's birthday in a month, but if I don't get there it is okay... I just need a BIG goal so I will continue to push myself hardcore!!

I hope you are all having a fabulous week and have a wonderful weekend ahead!!!

The Weekend Recap

Friday night we met up with our photographer and had Dax's 1 year old birthday photos taken as well as some family photos that my in-laws also participated in. We found a park near our house that has a mission style entrance, kind of looks like the front of The Alamo, which is perfect because Dax's birthday is a Uno Fiesta!!

The day started off scattered and ended the same way. It would have usually frazzled me to the point I didn't feel comfortable taking the pictures, but since I am working on #ProjectJordan, I decided to just go with the flow. The biggest upset was losing his birthday shirt (that we found the next day) but I found a cute blue button up in his closet and he wore that instead. Actually looking at the sneak peaks (which I will post next week), I think the blue shirt actually was a better option!

I am actually pretty proud of myself for keeping it together and not getting to flustered. I am also proud of myself for having fun in the photos instead of constantly pulling on my shirt or my shorts to make sure my "fat rolls" weren't showing. These shorts have been super tight for the longest time and I was so nervous to wear them. I actually wore them the day before to try and "stretch" them out some... you know how things are tight when they are first out of the dryer?! They ended up being perfect and I felt great in them. I also ended up wearing a Mexican dress for the first half of the photos and I felt very sexy and cute wearing it. I cant wait to see the pictures!!

Saturday, Casey took Caleb and Dax to a local tree farm and they picked out and planted flowers for me. When they got back home, Dax took a 4 hour nap (praise baby Jesus) and Casey and Caleb went to see Civil War (The Avengers movie). Sadly, Casey had to work Saturday afternoon (as usual) and so I spent the afternoon and evening alone with my boys. It was an early night for everyone and then Momma got to have some alone time playing with my new Mother's Day present...

When I won Kelsey's Challenge last year I wanted an iPad so badly BUT I also wanted a vinyl machine and heat press. Casey told me to get the iPad and for Mother's Day we will get the vinyl machine and my birthday the heat press... so when Mother's Day rolled around I made sure to remind him! I am currently learning the machine and building up some inventory so one day I can open an etsy page. I cant wait to get my heat press so I can start making some cute workout tanks too!!! Stay tuned for those...

Sunday aka Mother's Day was okay! Case forgot to buy me a Mother's Day card, I threw a fit and pouted for a bit, he apologized, I pouted some more and then we went to lunch. See, we aren't perfect... we fight, he forgets things and I pout! Haha! Lunch was good but it took forever and a day to get our food and Case had to go to work so when it arrived we had to have them box it up and we took it home to eat. It was a bummer but oh well, what can ya do?!

I spent the rest of the day eating too many carbs and way too much sugar!!!
Memories > Macros!!!

Yesterday I missed my morning workout but I went at lunch and got my sweat on! Today I am back on track and ready to conquer this week. I have some BIG goals for this month and I plan to destroy them all!!!

Tomorrow is exactly one month until Dax's Uno Fiesta where I want to wear a bikini... Big goals people... BIG GOALS!!!!

Jordan + Lisa = Georgia Fun!!!

Last Friday, Dax and I boarded a plane headed to Atlanta, Georgia for a weekend full of fun, friends and food!!! But the real story doesn't start there...

(this is a comparison from the first time we met to this past weekend. Anna wouldn't let hold her this time though...)

In 2014 I signed up for a pregnancy website that was sort of like Facebook. It allowed you to track your pregnancy and also make friends along the way. I made a couple here and there but one of the friendships really blossomed unlike the rest. Lisa and I became instant friends. We would email back and forth on the website and then it turned into emailing back and forth through our personal emails and then it went to texting... then last August when my family took a family vacation to South Carolina, we decided to meet up in the middle and meet face to face! We both brought our husbands and our children and had a great afternoon together. It felt like I had known her my entire life... she just gets me and I get her.

(I thought it would be fun to bring matching jammies for Lisa and me)

We text every single day. She is my go to person when I am having a bad day, when something fun happens or when I want to give up on being a mom (and yes, that does happen). We can vent and bitch to each other and neither of us gets offended. We both don't always agree on everything but we support each other on everything and I believe that is what makes our friendship so strong.

(This was at the Coca-Cola museum in the taste tasting room. The babies wanted cups of their own and boy did those cups entertain them for awhile)

Our babies are 8 days apart and so that means attending the first birthday parties are out of the question... so I decided I was going to pay her a visit and we could celebrate a few months early!! And have a couple of friendship dates while we were there. Luckily she has an amazing husband who watched the kids so we could have some one on one time. Seriously yall, this family is one of the best I have met.

(I was so happy to FINALLY be in ATL with my friend)

The weekend was a much needed break from my life. I had gotten to a point where I felt exhausted and worn out. I was over going to the gym everyday and I was done logging my food. I wanted to throw in the towel and quit. I decided that this get away would be my vacation from it all. I logged here and there and we walked a lot but other than that, it was out of sight out of mind. I enjoyed myself with no quilt and I had some amazing dishes of food... including the short braised ribs at a restaurant called Season 52! I even was able to enjoy a cocktail... which doesn't happen very often because I like to eat my calories instead of drink them, but since I wasn't tracking really, I was able to drink AND have dessert without a care in the world.

(I was pretty much in heaven.. unlimited every flavor of diet coke I wanted... oh and a creeper in the background, hahahaha)

We had a GREAT time... Other than the delay getting to Atlanta... seriously, we had a horrible delay due to the rain and storms that caused us to sit on the plane for a total of 5 hours (including flight). Dax actually did really good and didn't cry too much. I cried though, I cried a lot. I sat at the back of the plane thinking the restroom with the changing table was back there, turns out it was at the front of the plane. I had only packed enough for 3 bottles and we had gone through 2 of them already. Then Dax tore my pearl earring out of my ear and threw it across the plane! Luckily, when the plane did finally take off the pearl came rolling backwards down the aisle and I was able to pick it up, I guess it was a perk of sitting on the back row... The turbulence was horrible thanks to the storms BUT it did rock Dax to sleep and I was able to turn my iPad on and watch some of my movies.
(Cheers to our wonderful friendship... I love you lady)

Heading back to Fort Worth wasn't nearly as bad but we did have a long travel time. Atlanta traffic is horrible and crazy so Lisa had to drop us off about 4 hours early so she wouldn't be stuck going home. The airport had an art show and a plane train so I strapped Dax in the stroller and we walked for ever and ever getting on and off the plane train. I googled to see if the airport had a play land for kids (Dallas Love does) and it said it was at terminal A8 and A23. I walked down there to find there was NO such terminals and everyone I asked that worked at the airport had never heard of any play lands... it was heart breaking to say the least.

(I mean, aren't our babies so cute?!)

Finally we boarded the plane, sat in the very first row (next to the nicest man ever) and Dax was asleep for the entire flight... best part of getting home, Casey was waiting at the front door when we pulled up. My father in law was pulling into the driveway and I jumped out of the car, run as fast as I could and jumped into Casey's arms to kiss him!

I had such a great time in ATL with my wonderful friend and her super sweet family, but I am happy to be back home... Lisa, I am ready for you to come to Texas whenever you are ready to honky your tonk!!!
