Five on Friday Link Up

Since out of hidding, I thought I'd link up with Darci and her gals for a little fun "5 on Friday!"  I've been wanting to since she started but never found the motivation.  So I'm here now and wanted to share a few things!  So here it goes...

We attended a wedding in Marietta, GA this past weekend and snapped this sweet pic of Mae during the ceremony.  She was amazed by the bag pipes!  She looks so big yet so tiny. The girls were on the very best behavior.  I just knew I was going to be standing outside with one or both of them ha!


Pinterest does it again!  I wanted to try these "smores" while we went camping this summer but got the stuff while I was grocery shopping yesterday and figured it be just as easy at home.  So easy and so yummy!  It's a pack of fudge stripe cookies and jumbo marshmallows.  Pop cookie topped with marshmallow in the oven til a little golden and top with additional cookie and voila!


Our dining room is the only room in our house right now that is somewhat complete.  And I can't stop obsessing over it!  I love it!


Me and the girls had a little GNO this week while Daddy was slaving away at the new house.  He can sometimes work quicker without us so we hit up none other than Chickfila!  It is our go-to spot always!  We had a big time and E made lots of friends, even had a little almost pay for her icecream cone ha!  Oh, that girl!  Always an adventure with those two, I tell ya!


I'm really anxious to get my sewing machine back out and actually have a little craft "space" on our new house!  Before I had to take it down and put it away when I wanted to use it.  I hoping I can whip up a few of these little "bib" tops for my whittle girlies.  Love all things by Lolly Wolly Doodle but x2 for everything isn't in our budget right now so we'll see what I can create :)  Wish me luck!

So that's it for now!  Can't wait to play along next week :)

New Beginnings

No better time than the present to try to play catcy up!  I have fallen off the blogger wagon but wanted to document this new beginning for my little Lamb fam...the purchase of our forever home!  We made the decision to put our home on the market back in March with the hopes of purchasing a home that was a steal.  That home sold, and I was really discouraged but everyone encouraged us to keep looking because it wasn't meant to be.  So we continued to leave our home for sale in hopes we would find another home that we loved as much or more than the other.  At the end of May, we had an offer on our home and things were moving along with that but still had no luck on a future purchase.  We started cruising neighborhoods we liked hoping we would find something that struck our fancy just as we had we with our first home.  Adam first saw our new home online and with it being near his parents, we took a drive on the golf cart and fell in love with it!  It was surely my dream home....colonial, picket fence, hardwoods, perfectly landscaped, everything!  We immediately jumped on it when we saw the price had been lowered $20k only three days prior.  We knew it would go fast so we got the ball rolling Father's Day weekend.  It all happened so fast but it felt so right.  We closed last Friday, and we couldn't be more excited for this new beginning!  We've been hard at work this week getting it move-in ready.  We have to wait on the cabinet guy until Monday but can hardly wait to hopefully start sleeping there this weekend!  Sunday is our 6th anniversary, so what a sweet gift that will be to begin sleeping at our forever home. 

We made so many memories at our very first home from spending our wedding night there to bringing each of babies home there, but house is just house and its all about the memories you make there.  I look forward to the many memories that will be made at our forever home with our precious girls and all the joy and laughter that will fill this new home.  It makes me a little emotional just thinking about it.  I don't know where we would be without the help of our family and friends.  They've all pitched in someway, shape or form to make this dream of ours a reality!  I'm so thankful for my hardworking hubby who works all day and then goes to the new house to work some more.  He works so hard to provide for our family and I couldn't be more blessed by him.  I'm a girl with a very full and very happy heart!
