BT Sandwiches

Ever had one with fresh garden tomatoes?


Luke and I have already had this meal 4 times in the past week.

And all you need are:

-2 pieces of toasted bread

-Miracle whip

-Fresh tomatoes

-Crispy hot bacon (I recommend baking it in the oven)

-Salt and Pepper

Obviously I don't care how many calories this delicious sandwich has because every time, my plate ends up looking like this...

And let's face it. Nothing beats a fresh red juicy tomato picked right out of your own garden.

Knotty girl

Back in July, I helped Oakley do something that very few 5 year olds would never actually do...


After a lot of convincing, Oakley decided that she wanted to get her hair done. We set a date and planned out the entire afternoon. I don't know who was more excited out of her, her parents or myself.


A couple hours into the backcombing, twisting and rolling.

A few hours into it

Almost there

Finally done...for now.

We made a deal that we would take Oaks so Texas Road house for dinner...

...Followed by some ice cream...

...Shopping for some headbands, AND a sleepover. I'd say this girl sure knows how to make a deal.

I love Oakley, I love her hair and everything about her.

Isn't she just the cutest little dread head you've ever seen?

Snugle bear

My boy is growing up way too fast. Can you believe that next month he'll be turning 3?

Not me.

I better sneak in as much cuddle time as I can.

Brothers? Sisters? Cousins?

I am way WAY behind on my blogging and I plan on getting caught up. Promise.

Tonight while I was going through my pictures, I saw this...

Andrew and Oliver

Oliver and Andrew have always been good buddies and maybe it due to the fact that they look a lot alike. Their baby pictures are fun to go through because they look like they could really could be brothers. They even have similar personalities. It's a little weird.

And then I found this picture...

Oakley and Oliver

Is it just me or do they look like they could totally be brother and sister? Maybe it's the matching shirts.

Or maybe it's because he's with them so much that he's just starting to resemble them. Good thing they are so stinkin' cute.
