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.

Happy Birthday Mom!

What do you do when you are blessed with the sweetest, most amazing mother ever, and she will soon be celebrating her 82nd birthday? You take her out to a surprise birthday dinner at a favorite Italian restaurant of course! Last evening, my mom came over to pick out a new dress for Madison's wedding at the dress shop where Madison works and found the most perfectly beautiful dress! Afterward, we all joined my sister Margie and Chris for dinner. My mom had a delicious meal of Chicken Maria, salad and a piece of homemade coconut cream pie. It was a perfect night celebrating the most lovely woman I know.








I pray all her wishes come true!


P.S.  Birthdays make me think of cake, which makes me think of National Chocolate Cake Day!
National Chocolate Cake Day is Sunday, January 27, 2019.
That is this Sunday!
Enjoy!
