The above is our camo shirt. $25

The cardigan with the see thru back is so gorgeous! $30

Just an idea of what I'm up to these days.

Pics Found on Dave's phone... poor guy

So I'm sitting here sipping my wine, feet kicked up and finally able to type with two hands although that is the most I can use my right arm. Stupid arm. Today was the first time out of my house in two weeks.... Dave drove me to the next town over for my hair appointment and back. Love his face. After jumping in to help his guys last night, he ended up sleeping in the truck while I was in there so catch up on his snooze. This man slays me, but he's right, I'm not ready to drive myself.

So things are good here. My Duchess is really blooming into her own person. I love this kid. She's a gentle soul who does no harm to anyone and is getting just stepped all over by her friends which really hurts my heart but I'm coaching her to stand up for herself. She's also asked me to stop laying out her clothes. She seriously has begun to put together outfits that leave me laughing but seem to work for her. Today she wore a "my heart belongs to Elvis" shirt with a lacy, funky retro skirt and fleece tights with ankle boots. Dear Lord. Her grades are great and she's doing well in volleyball camp. She's still doing piano and sax, so it's a musical house we live in.

Princess keeps me running. Seriously, because the grades aren't quite where they should be, she's driving on a permit. I won't bend and let her get her license (although she's got a nice ford expedition to drive already in the driveway, spoilt ass kid ... not really it's my old truck lol) until she gets them grades right. She's prepping for high school softball tryouts. I have her training with a local university softball team player cause with my bum shoulder and Dave's work schedule, we can't really do that with her. She's stepping up here at home really helping me out since I'm down in the recliner.

I go in two days for my post-op checkup. Fun stuff right there. And stitches come out. GAAAAAAG

Otherwise no word on the move front so we're just kinda not worrying about it. Juggling flooded downstairs laundry rooms/bathrooms, neighbors on vacay who volunteer my kids to shovel their walks and drives while they are gone, school schedules, work schedules and my upcoming trunk show. Life is pretty good.

I'm  blessed.

So im living in my recliner. .... recouping from shoulder surgery.  And as usual we have tons on the horizon.  I'll get to that.... but dude im all about may.

See for years. Years..... ive been after Dave to take me on a cruise. Hes been all over the world and well ive been raising babies and wifing it. Its a great gig. But since I've completed my MBA.... my mom has been after me to schedule a trip. Dave and me. And somehow the two of them came up with the best idea on earth. May 11-15 .... I'll be cruising to Mexico and back. With my girl Connie and my mom was in the plan but due to inventory she cant. My other two bfff are scheduling moves not long after so hopefully I can drag them along next time.

He's jumped in to help me plan. We got an awesome cabin with big ole view. The top most deck so we're close to everything.  Scheduling horseback riding excursions ( since shoulder will not be up for most other stuff still ). Im kinda in awe.

Dude. This is gonna rock. The only other trip ive had is visiting said bfff in Florida last year. Its strange to have girls trip but fun!!!!

The kids swear if mine goes well that my mom and me better take them next.

All aboard! !!!!
