I guess a lot of this laughter came from my Mamaw Edna.
Mamaw Edna is a remarkable woman. She always hoped for a better life when she was a child. But when she looks back on her life now, she says she would not change anything. Mamaw says that she is a lot like Paul in the Bible, she is happy with what she has had and what she has now. One thing that has always been constant in my Mamaw’s life is her faith in God. My Mamaw has lived with a deacon all her life, her dad was a deacon and my Papaw was a deacon when she married him. When my Mamaw faces anything she leans on the strength that God gives her. A strong sense of faith in God has been passed on through the generations in my family.

Some of my favorite things the girls said or did this weekend -
I had on my bracelets and earrings and Hadley told me I was dressed up like a princess!
Harper wanting to put on my "gip gloss" and her sneaking into my make-up bag to get some!
Having a "wadies wunch" on Saturday.
Hearing them read their books. Hadley woke up Saturday morning and read a book in bed. Every page had the words "mommy and daddy and wonderful day."
I enjoy every second I get to spend with those girls and their mom Jennifer! I am amazed how much their smile and hug can totally melt your heart. Being "Aunt Moe" to those cutie pies is about the best thing I know right now!

On Monday Ms. Arty Pants came to my class to paint a Valentine's Day canvas with my students. Ms. Arty Pants is a local Paint Your Own Canvas studio. Anessa, Ms. Arty Pants, will also visit schools and paint with the kids. My kids love this! We painted at Christmas and they couldn't wait for her to come back!
The kids start with a blank canvas with a sketch of what they are going to paint. The kids decided to paint a "Bee Mine" picture. Ms. Arty Pants guided them through the process.
Each kid got to pick out the paint color for the background which made them each so different and fun. This is what they looked like when the kids were finished painting.
After they are finished Ms. Arty Pants puts her magic touch to them. That Ms. Arty Pants is a miracle worker!
The kids had a blast painting and had even more fun trying to decide who they were going to ask to "Bee their Valentine"!

I am hoping if I blog about my fitness at least once a week I will stay motivated and dedicated to running and reaching my fitness goals. In the last year I have gained some weight. So part of my wanting to train for a run is wanting to lose those extra pounds I've added to my frame.
I have been running 3 times a week for the past few weeks on a treadmill at my gym. I know I need to go run outside but I don't want to do this alone. I need a running buddy and warmer weather!
Yesterday I ran the longest period of time so far - 8 minutes! ha! I warmed up with a 5 minute walk, ran 8 minutes, walked for 5 minutes, ran another 8 minutes, and then walked 5 minutes to cool down. I am still at 3 miles with running and walking. Tomorrow my app tells me that I should run for 22 minutes without stopping to do 2 and 1/4 miles. Hopefully I will!
Last weekend I went to the Lululemon store in Asheville to check it out. I have always heard they had great workout clothes. I absolutely loved the store and the clothes were so stinkin cute! I did pick up one of their sports bras and I am hooked! As I was looking around I saw this cute running skirt. I think I will need to add this skirt to my collection real soon!
Thanks for dropping by.

I love Lilly Pulitzer clothing! It's just so fun and bright! But sometimes it is hard to wear in the cold weather. You have to be creative in the cold winter months with your Lilly! That is why I love the Jonah dress. It is a thicker knit and easy to wear with a cardigan and leggings. This week I decided to wear my brown Heel Yeah Jonah with my Hotty Pink cardigan to school. When I got to school my friend and teacher across the hall had on her Hotty Pink cardigan and brown pants! The kids thought this was hilarious that we were dressed alike. (Confession - I thought it was pretty darn great!) I just love matching the people I love! Ha! I know that I am a little too old for that but I just can't help myself! I remember loving when my childhood best friend Gina and I would plan to wear our green monogrammed sweaters to school on the same day! Such fun!
And speaking of twins and matching I will leave you with pictures of the cutest twins I know matching in their Lilly dresses!
