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 Things













What made me happy this week?
Freshly bathed and trimmed puppies~A midweek trip to the city to see my baby's favorite singer ever, Shawn Mendes~My cozy, simple bedroom with freshly washed sheets~And a bit of Halloween. Because. Halloween.

What made you happy this week, my friends?

Oh, and a Public Service Announcement:
When you have a small, almost minuscule pimple on your face, and your makeup artist and skincare expert daughter tells you to leave it alone, LEAVE IT ALONE. Do not, under any circumstances, try to eradicate it yourself. (See above photo.)

  2. Your dog looks so cute!! She looks like a happy child at the concert. I am getting old and don't know any of the young singers now a days. I have never heard of Shawn Mendez but I presume with that last name he is someone of hispanic origin and he looks young and cute! :) Your bed looks fabulous!! Sweet pillow!! Indeed Halloween is about here!

  9. Haha Billie Jo, I am so guilty of NOT being able to leave those nasty little blemishes alone. Every day is a happy day when it's still summer - I love Halloween, but I's not ready to embrace it just yet. In a couple of months for sure, just not yet. Fresh shaved and bathed pups are a happy thing and so are fresh washed sheets. Oh how I love that feeling and smell! So glad you were able to take Flynn to her favorite concert. Fun memories!!!

  12. This week I was made happy by taking a great morning walk with my son, having tacos for dinner, buying the last of our school supplies, and a great church service that made me realize how important relationships are and why we need them. :) Your pup looks so sweet all bathed and groomed- I love those days too!! :) And Shawn Mendes- YEAH! I would love that concert too! :)
