Circus Train

Poor Wyatt has been sick with a bad cold this week so I have been home with him. We have spent a great deal of the time snuggling up in our jammies. On Wednesday, Justin texted me and told me the circus train was coming our way!

I had just gotten out of the shower and still had a soaking wet head, but I threw my hair up in a ponytail and got Wyatt into some proper clothes and flew up to an empty parking lot in town in front of the tracks.

My dad met us up there. Wyatt was very interested in the semis and other vehicles going through the intersection.

Daddy got a call for work and had to leave before the train made it through, so I was left juggling Wyatt on my hip, my cell phone recording video for Justin because he missed most of it, and my digital camera to snap still shots.


As you can see, my pictures were less than stellar, so here are some shots my SIL Amanda took out in the country.

We are so excited that we got to see the circus train come through. Justin and I are already making plans to take Wyatt when the circus comes to Tallahassee in January!

Georgia Museum of Agriculture


Justin, Wyatt, and I visited the Georgia Museum of Agriculture this past Saturday to check out the annual cane grinding event. Wyatt was coming down with a bad virus and I ended up with an eye infection (obviously not from the museum), but we had a great time anyway. Y’all don’t even know how hard it is to get used to not calling this place the Agrirama (which had been its name for the past 15 years or more).


From their website:

Georgia’s Museum of Agriculture and Historic Village opened as the Agrirama on July 4, 1976. The grounds consist of five areas: a traditional farm community of the 1870s, an 1890s progressive farmstead, an industrial sites complex, rural town, national peanut complex, and the Museum of Agriculture Center. Over 35 structures have been relocated to the 95-acre site and faithfully restored or preserved. Costumed interpreters explain and demonstrate the life-style and activities of this time in Georgia’s history.


Here are some shots I snapped throughout the day.

Santa Baby

Christmas came early this year for Justin and me—almost two months early. We were both so excited about our gifts for each other, so we went ahead and gave them. I bought Justin a new pistol, but I have to say I could just about jump out of my skin with my gift! I am such a dork, but Justin hooked me up with a whole kitchen full of Tupperware. He is the best husband and knows how much I will treasure mine for many many years. Both of our mamas have Tupperware that is older than we are!
He even got the Shape-o toy for Wyatt like I had when I was little. Have I got a great one, or what?!?

Mule Day Festival

This past weekend, we took Wyatt camping for the first time with Justin’s mama and daddy to Calvary, Georgia for the Mule Day festivities. We had a great time with friends and family. Doesn’t our boy look so cute with that little camo hat? The mules in the parade were absolutely beautiful and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!

Sock Bun Style

I found a pin on Pinterest that showed a mass of soft beautiful curls that I have been coveting forever. The tag line caught my attention: "No heat; use a sock only!" I thought it was snake oil but I clicked on over to the YouTube video and was amazed. You can find it here: Sock Bun Curls.

I tried this out last night and looked quite silly when I went to bed. 

When I woke up this morning, I couldn't wait to take my hair down. Womp Womp. Mine didn't work like magic. Granted I did it on sweaty post-walking hair so I didn't give it my best shot to start with. I can see some potential so I will definitely try it again.

Since I used one of Justin's old socks, I think I'm going to go to Dollar Tree and pick up some dress socks. I think if the sock is thinner the curls will be a little more uniform. I will also spray a little holding product on my hair next time.

Can't wait to perfect this method!

Six months old!

Look who celebrated his half birthday on Friday:


Sorry for the phone pic- Justin has my camera at work today.

My sweet Wy-man is six months old. Time flies and that aint no joke, folks! He is such a sweet thing and I couldn’t imagine being any happier than I am now. I often joke around with people and say that had I known being a mama was so rewarding, I would have gotten married and had a few right out of high school. Cherish every single minute you have because time is fleeting!

Wyatt got his first “taste” of hanging out in the kitchen while Justin was carving his little pumpkin. I had just used this spoon to mix up some sweet tea and he played with it for a while. He finally figured out where the good stuff was Smile

Two cute punkins

A baby pumpkin carved for Baby Wyatt—and a last minute catch by Daddy kept him from falling over!


First: The rejected costume. Wyatt did not like the monkey costume very well. I think the way the headpiece velcroed under his chin bothered him. This one was very cute but was a smidge too big.

We got on his lion costume and he was adorable. I was almost the exact same age for my first Halloween and I was a lion, too. He has been able to roar a little bit lately but he seemed to freeze up and became uncooperative when we got his costume on him.

Here are a few snaps from the night.
