Peanut Stacking, Farmers Market & a Stump Chuckin' festival!

Like usual life is great when daddy is home! On Saturday we tried to get out and about and have some fun. It's amazing how much we got done by 1pm! We hit the Farmers market at 8:30 in the morning and I was a able to pick up a Ginormous bag of fresh wheat flour and a jar of homemade Salsa. We then hit up the Peanut Stacking event. I figured since we live in the Peanut Capital we should learn all about it! It was super fun and a little hot out! Yuck!Thankfully I was prepared with Veggie stix (chips)and lots of water. The two older gentleman were super fun to talk to and we learned alot about the old school ways of using a mule to dig the ground, the shaking process and then the stacking! It's now my fall back job! Ha! Ha! After we grabbed a little lunch we went to a small, small town and checked out the Stump Chuckin' Festival. Still not quite sure of the whole process of Stump Chuckin' but the kids had some fun in the bounce houses they had there. It was an early day when we got back to the house but we had gotten so much don so early! Fun!

Struggling a bit and kinda in a rut!

I haven't posted anything in a while and I either have nothing to say or haven't done anything interesting enough to write about. I am how ever tired of the up and downs of my emotions. Today it's a little rough! So we have decided that we are going to try out new churches. I'm not saying that the one we were attending was awful but for some reason deep down in my gut it just doesn't feel right. UGH! I just want a church! On the same note we received a letter from our old church letting us know that they are taking us out as members because we no longer live there and don't attend the church. I feel like I was just kicked while I was down but I know it had to be done. Brent has been traveling a lot lately and the first week I headed over to my parents for a few days while he was gone. It helps a tad with the kids and all. My father started growing Cotton and the kids enjoyed Granddad (dad) showing them that. The next week I stayed by myself for the first time in the new house. I can't stand it when hubby is gone because not only do I hear the words Mommy, mommy, mommy a million times more but I can't sleep. When he is gone I put the kids in the room with me. So I either can't sleep because of the houses noises or I have a toe shoved up my nose! Train, Ice maker, neighbors dog, toilet bowl, our dog snoring, kids snoring, cars driving by, TRAIN! It's all scary! Anywho, he is back now and life is good. But, I will tell you that I actually ventured out without him and I was so glad that I did. I'm sure you are saying that I am always venturing out but not like this. I took the boys to their first Circus! I didn't tell Memphis where we going and said it was a surprise. I thought that he was going to explode! I was little nervous because the circus was crowded and Sawyer couldn't be in a stroller to restrain him from walking away. But, it was amazing and fun and great all rolled into one! The kids were so unbelievably great and very excited! I really wished that Brent could have been with us though so it kinda just didn't feel the same...complete I should say. I still haven't made any real close friends yet or at least not someone that I want to call and hang out with often because I like to talk to them. So I am still feeling a little lonely. I did start a mommy meet-up group that has officially 30 members now and grows daily. I started this group for moms, families, kids and ME! I'm not gonna lie I am hoping to meet some friends through members of the group. It has also forced me to find out whats going on around town to post on the events calendar and get out and about! I have also signed up to be a vendor at a small town harvest day festival. Little nervous about this because it's my first time being a vendor but I hope that it goes great and I meet tons of people and maybe sell a few products too! If ya'll are questioning what I sell you have to see my site
I have made one huge decision in my life and ALOT nervous about this. Memphis is going to be 4 years old in about 2 weeks and Sawyer is 1 years old. Brent and I have never left or children with anyone. Memphis maybe once or twice with my parents but never both of them. Oh! except with my best friend when the movers where there for a couple hours but three of my friends were watching them there at her house. I have decided that I am going to join a gym that has child care. So I can go to the gym at 8:30am in the morning and then off to all the kid's stuff throughout the day, lunch, straighten house, then daddies home! I met a girl that works out there and wants me to be her work out partner and I am wanting this soooooo bad. So I have decided for once that I am going to do something for me...a little scary! Especially since I'm a germ-a-phob! But as this girl says in her cute little southern drawl. Put your hands on them, pray over them and then kick their booty's into the play room and go work out! So it's official that's my plan! Atleast it is when we get the extra money...Tee Hee! I talk a big talk!

Cock-a-doodle who? Art!

I love looking at what everyone considers art! This is my first attempt at the MckLinky blog hopping and I'm pumped! I was also excited to see the subject was a photo of art. They also suggested even a photo of your children's art. But honestly when I see them drawing on the walls grabbing my camera and saying "Awwwwww! How cute let me take a photo!" is really not the first thing that comes into mind! Hee! Hee! This is my rendition of Fog Horn Leg!We just moved to a new state and ventured out to the flea market. We found more piglets, roosters, chickens, and rabbits then we did fleas! I snapped this photo and I love it! You have never heard "Mommy can I have a pig?" come out of a three year olds mouth so many times. Seeing farm animals out and about is something we are not use to and are enjoying very much! Happy Hopping fellow blog stalkers!

I just want to start off by saying yes! I now I am almost 35yrs. old! Hee! Hee! So I'm sure all my passer by-ers for the most part are on Facebook. Obviously you see here on my blog that I sell Thirty-One gifts and My Best friend is actually the person who Signed me up. I started a Thirty-one Gifts group on Facebook and she did as well but under the name Tammy's thirty-one gifts. I have maybe about 56 members and she has been working hard and has a ton more! She stated that she would do a little dance if she reached 100 people and she had that happened while she was in town visiting me! So I was kind enough to film that goofy little "I reached 100 people" dance for her. So here it is! Ha! Ha! Love you much Tammy! So are so silly! Oh! here is my shameless plug! Shop with me at

Fun with friends!

Some fun times!

I am very lucky to have such great friends! Thank you Amanda for loading up the kiddos and Driving 1 1/2 hours and coming to visit us for the day!
I love it when Brent is home and we get to spend some family fun time out and about! We were able to make it to another town about 30minutes away and have some lunch at a park and play a while.

While we there in town we also went to the Army Aviation Museum. It was super neat and Memphis and Sawyer had a great time!

I wanted to post a couple photo's that show the crazy stuff that sawyer has been doing lately. He never wants to take a hat off his head and the new oddity is that he likes to wear Memphis's flip flops on his hand.....even when we leave the house!

These are some goofy bonus photo's for you to view! I love my boys! All three of them!
