5 Reasons

There are 5 REASONS why I’ve changed John Martin’s nickname from Hornet to Barracuda…


Can you count them? Those are 5 good reasons, don’t you think?

Life is clicking along over here. I haven’t made my way to round three just yet! I asked Justin what he thought about answering them, he laughed. He’s not made for this blogging world. I may ask one more time just to be sure he doesn’t want to! 🙂

We’re having a shower here this Saturday and let me just say, there’s nothing better to get your rear in gear than hosting a shower at your house! Especially one that involves 77 invitees, of which many are the older women in your church! And it’s even more exciting that it’s for 2 ladies and 3 babies… yes, one baby GIRL and one set of twin BOYS! It should be a wonderful time and I look forward to sharing pictures with y’all… but until then I will leave you with this little hint from one of our bathrooms…


Oh… and one more for good measure. I asked Hornet what he thought about his new name, Barracuda…


I think he was thinking of something a little more affectionate. Maybe I should bite him and then he would understand! {Don’t worry, I won’t bite him! Unless it’s to “gobble him up” because he’s simply irresistible!}

See y’all soon!

    He’s still a cutie, especially in with that little alligator outfit. My Luke has that same outfit, and I could eat him too! You’re killing me with the suspense on these bathroom photos…please give us more soon!

    you have such adorable babies!!! JM is only a few months younger than my little barracuda – thankfully this one orders his meals out these days, or we would have quite the predicament on our hands. 🙂

    I am with Kathy and am nostalgic about Cottage Living. There was a designer who worked for them (Auburn grad I think) I just LOVED EVERYTHING SHE DID. Though I can’t remember her name right this second, I know she goes by three names. Anyhoo, I think I’d rather her meet her than the queen of England. She has beautiful style and I want her to be my BFF and tell me what to do with the butler’s pantry in my nearly 100 y.o. house. 🙂
    Can’t wait to see your bathrooms … and I am WILD about the fact that you were able to be thrifty in the process!
