Monday Afternoon

I had planned on having a nomal post today.
One that was well thought out.
But yeah... it's just not happening.
It'll be my usual post of randomness.
I feel like that is kind of how my life is right now.
A whole bunch of random thrown together:)
This afternoon my big two are getting the special treat of skipping naps.
Emma doesn't nap anymore... but I do make her lay on the couch to read books quietly.
Some days trying to get them to lay down for naps can be downright exahusting.
They're both curled up on the couch with their blankets watching a movie now.
It's peaceful and quiet... nobody's trying to sneak out of their rooms... or throwing a fit.
My kind of afternoon:)
Plus I kind of enjoy their company while I work around the house!
And as if a peaceful afternoon isn't enough... there's pumpkin chocolate chip bread in the oven.
Enough said.
It's going to be a great afternoon :)
To answer your questions about my shirt from Saturday's post.
Yes, I did make it!
No, it was not a pinterest find.
Sweet Travis brought home an XL shirt the night before the football game.
Just a tad to big.
So I cut off the top, made it strapless (*gasp!*), added some elastic and voila!
Instant dress/maternity top/whatever you want to call it!
Super fun and comfy for a mother of three who has a pregnant belly...
I plan on making many more and wearing them proudly;)
This little guy.
Oh man.
He melts my heart.
He's sweet as can be,
 loves to give me kisses,
is content being by my side constantly,
can whistle (seriously whistle like an adult...he does it when we're in the car and he's looking out the window...cutest thing EVER),
says only a handful of words (important ones...ball, deer, mama, sissy and dadda)
and is just plain precious.
I adore him if you can't tell :)

I'm off to clean out my craft drawers.
They are out of control.
I am not a hoarder by any means.
I truly hate too much stuff.
But when it comes to craft supplies and fabrics I am a dangerous hoarder.
A 1 inch by 1 inch piece of fabric... heavens no don't throw it away!
I might need it someday for a craft:)
So wish me luck... it's going down with my fabric stash.
Hope your Monday has been great!!!
