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.

Turning Fifty Was Fun!





















I turned 50 on Saturday! 
It was an amazing day.
One of the most special moments?
Watching two of my children serve Mass together.
It was Flynn's very first time, and watching Rhett help her was so special.
My mom was so happy!
After Mass, we had a lovely dinner at one of our favorite local restaurants. There were flowers, balloons, and cake, organized by my Madison. After dinner, pictures, hugs, and goodbyes, we headed home, where I promptly changed into my pajamas, snuggled on the couch and watched a movie. 
It was a blessed, happy day!

And just so you don't think I take myself too seriously...

Fifty is Fabulous!

Have a wonderful week, my friends!
