Miscellany Monday

one. And then there was 1---Now Gillian Grace is the only munchkin on the block; school started today! In 3 short years, I'll be that nervous momma walking her sweet girl to school for the first day of prekindergarten. And yes, we are those parents and have had our daughter on the admissions' wait list since she was just days old.

I took GG to visit her future school and my old workplace. I visited with my teacher friends and Gillian Grace found a familiar face, our neighbor, to keep her company.

two. No, Tebow is not auditioning for the role of Friar Tuck in the newest Disney on Turf production of Robin Hood, but sadly is just sporting his newest do, courtesy of the Denver Broncos veterans. I heart Timmy, I really do! But, I just can't get on board with this new look. Thank goodness in a few weeks he'll be as purty as ever!


three. Gillian Grace is cutting 4 teeth! Oh how I wish all 20 of her pearly whites would make their debut at the same time. This every other week teething thing is wearing us thin---

four. I'm a little late in the game, but I've recently become addicted to Etsy. I've got a few items hanging out in my cart just waiting to be purchased. Among the items, are a few handpainted signs from Mama's Messages. My new bloggy friend Anna has recently opened a shop. Be sure to check out this week's awesome giveaway to win one of Anna's signs for yourself.


five. And whatdoyaknow? It must me Anna's day! She was the correct guesser (um, if that's even word) for Friday's impromptu giveaway. Congratulations, girl! Hope Baby W enjoys his pool as much as Gillian Grace has!


We call this GG's stinky face! She scrunches up her nose, shows her teeth, and snorts! It's a guaranteed riot every time she does it; she just looks so silly!

six. Thank you for all of your kind words and prayers for my grandmother. After a weekend in the hospital, doctors have been able to rule out any cardiac complications and instead have determined that it is her gallbladder. She is scheduled for surgery this morning, so please keep her in your thoughts.


seven. It wasn't me! Finally I'm not the only one around her in need of visiting the Wizard for a brain---Saturday evening, Bret sat my dinner leftovers on top of the tonneau cover over the bed of his truck while he got GG situated in her carseat. Said leftovers were discovered about 15 minutes and 5 miles later when we stopped for ice cream, sitting precariously near the edge. Now while I know that we're not the first goofs to drive with a forgotten something atop our car, we should certainly earn high marks for making it clear across town without a spill!


eight. I'm feeling crafty! Since receiving so many compliments on the wreath I made for Gillybean's birthday party, I've been busy making a few more. I've had several requests for Fall, football, and Halloween wreaths, so it looks like I'll be busy! (Want a custom wreath of your own? Email me and we'll chat!)

I took a wreath I'd made with me up to my old school this past week. I was so delighted when I heard it was hanging on the office door for Parent Preview.

Of course I had to make a Florida Gator wreath for the upcoming football season! My favorite part of all my wreaths has to be my handmade bows! I may not know how to sew, but I can sure make a decent bow!


I painted helmets and footballs to accent the wreath! Go Gators!

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

Have a great Monday, y'all!

OMG! I am going to have to see about getting a Gator wreath! You, my friend need to open your own Etsy shop. I love Etsy too, got some stuff for Bobby's nursery when decorating it.

Glad your grandmother's illness wasn't heart-related. I hope everything goes well w/ her gallbladder!

Sounds like ya'll are doing well! Go Gators!!!

P.S. We didn't get to watch Tebow play last night b/c we didn't have Direct TV. Did ya'll?

Whew!! I'm so glad that your grandma doesn't have any cardiac problems. However, I am praying like crazy for her today about the surgery. Let me know how it goes!

Those wreaths are so great Shannon!!! You are awesome. :)

In Alabama my brother left a drink with no lid on it on the roof of my car and I drove at least 10 miles before we realized it and it was still there sitting upright!! I said see how good of a driver I am?! ;)

Shannon, I need a wreath. Texas A&M style. You need to open up a little online shop for yourself, very cute.

I hope your grandmother's surgery goes well and she's on her way to recovering.

Did you see Tebow last night? He shaved his head. Looks better now. He made up for the lack of hair on his head by growing out some facial scruff.

Love the wreath. I need to become talented :)

Sarah Beth - Dixie Gator Gal said...

Love the Gator wreath! You do tie one heck of a bow!

Hoping your grandmother's health improves quickly.

Kelly @ Blessed Mommy, Blessed Wife said...

Love, love, love those wreaths! You totally need to open an etsy shop and sell those beauties!

Ugh, I can't wait until Tebow shaves that hair. It's so ridiculous it's not even funny to me. I cringe when I see it!

Happy Monday!
