Hey there!
Hi! I'm Billie Jo, a wife to one and mother to four who loves all things home and family. During the day I homeschool, do laundry, and drink way excessive amounts of coffee. I would much rather read than exercise, and I am blessed to live the life I dreamed of.

I hope you all had a lovely and relaxing weekend. Here it was cozy, chilly, happy, and relaxing. And full of good food too! Here are some pictures of the fun we had...

Some with Grandma too!
After Mass we took Grandma out to dinner to celebrate her on this Mother's Day weekend.

Sunday meant sleeping late, and a delicious breakfast in bed...

Coffee made by my Rhett...

Random snapchat selfies with my baby...

Fun with my mom and sister...

Snuggles under my new Minky blanket...

Pictures with the ones that made me Mom...
Minus my firstborn, who sent me the most beautiful, handwritten, card...

Pictures of my little fur baby, Mocha...

And lots of Mother's Day love from family and friends.

We finished the day with a slice of this delicious Toll House Chocolate Chip Pie, made for me by my Peyton.

Oh! We chose the winner of the giveaway too!
Actually, there were so many entries, I decided to give away two copies!

Peyton and Flynn each chose one name, and the lucky winners are...
