Throwback Thursday

It's not often that I have access to all my TBT pictures on an actual Thursday. I usually remember on Friday and think "Oh yeah...yesterday was Thursday and I wanted to post TBT pics!!" So...ya'll get a few of them today.

Me at Mom-mom's House, I own that piano now.

Yes Sponge-rollers, they were sooooo a thing in my house

Being silly with my friends from Idaho

Me and two little guys I used to babysit, Devon and Darrick. Darrick (the boy in the white shirt) just graduated from high school on May 18th. I feel so old...

Aaand one just to embarrass myself... Worst. Hairstyle. EVER!! What the heck was I thinking? On the plus side, my baby bro looks dashing ;)

I guess I should upload all of my pics to a website so I can have access to them anywhere, yeah?! Maybe then I can let you enjoy more of my embarrassing pictures. :)

Daughter's Day

Mother's Day is always a hard day for me. Not only because my mom lives so far away from me, but also because my hubby and I have been trying - and failing - to have kids for far too long. Every year, I hope that I can make a fun announcement or actually get to celebrate being a mom on Mother's Day. So far that has yet to happen and it's hard. 

Luckily, I have such a caring and compassionate family. I woke up this morning to a text from my mother, she wanted me to check my email. So I checked it and found this e-card waiting for me. My mom had recorded a message and the cute dog read to me in an English accent. 

My mom said, "In honor of you I am re-naming today Daughter's Day, a daughter like you deserves a day to be queen. You are such a blessing in my life, truly the best daughter anyone could ask for. I know God has a plan for your life; you are fearfully and wonderfully made. You are just the way He designed you to be. Love and Hugs, Mom"

So after listening to my e-card its needless to say, I was very touched, and emotional, and I can't put into words all that I was feeling in that moment. All I know is that I have the best mom in the world. She is thoughtful, understanding, selfless, and I am very thankful to have her in my life. I would be lost without her. 

Oh but my caring and compassionate family doesn't end there....

My husband had to work early today and his way home he called to see if I wanted anything from the store. I said that I wanted cake... and brownies... Don't judge me remember I had been crying and needed comfort food. Well, not only did he get me cake and brownies he bought me flowers and a Mother's Day card. The inside read, "I can't imagine a wife more wonderful than you, a life more perfect than ours, or a man any luckier than me." He added, "and though you're not yet a mother, a great one you will be." ..... and I cried Yaay 

So, yes Mother's Day is a hard day for me. But I am a lucky girl who has wonderful family and friends that know how to make it easier. I love them more than words can ever express. <3 

Happy Mother's/Daughter's Day!!

Nail Files: May 4th, 2014

This is my contribution to Star Wars was good to paint my nails again. I feel like I haven't done any nail art in a while. Oh wait...I haven't. I have been lacking inspiration lately. Star Wars Day was just what I needed. :-)

May the Fourth be with you,
Jedi Jessy
