Jimmy’s Thank You Notes:


Thank you, Baby Boy, for my beautiful new ring! I’m seriously head-over-hills for this little guy, he’s the best hype man ever!!  He has no problem blowing up my head, he tells me I’m beautiful, asks me to be his wife, and makes sure I’m always okay.  I’m one lucky gal.

Thank you, Baby Girl, for precious moments.  Can we always create together, forever? Baby Girl and her Lego Bricks|Mrs. AOK, A Work In Progress Thank you, “tween”, for not being too grown for love.  I love that you have no problem lovin’ on you siblings…. in public. 🙂 Sister and Brother Mrs. AOK, A Work In Progress Thank you, Target, for tempting me with all your beautiful clearance stickers. I went in for just you know the essentials, and came out with clothes and this AWESOME clearance find.  I love candles and pumpkin, but you already know this. Target Clearance Thank you, Ray, for the shout out on your blog this weekend!! I like your word for this year, we can all use a little patience.

Thank you, deflate gate, for the laughs this week. HAHA! -balls and shrinkage!

Deflate GateThank you, Babe, for going half on this thing called parenthood.  I could NOT be more grateful for having you on this journey, even when it is tough.

Sometimes parenthood is tough| Mrs. AOK, A Work In Progress| Parenthood|Raising a Tween I have two late thank you notes…. better late than never… right? My apologies! I accidentally left out this Thank You Note TWO WEEKS AGO: Texas Bracelet Thank you, big sister, for my new bracelet.  Yes, us Texans love our state something fierce.  Random crazy fact: I haven’t lived in Texas for 10 YEARS! 🙁

Thank you, Lady Lilith, for the lovely blog nomination!! I’m honored you thought of me. One_Lovely_Blog_Award_

  1. That ring is just too cute. What a sweet little guy!! I think that’s super cool that you are learning to play the ukelele. YouTube concert!! Hope you have a great weekend!

    1. Isn’t that ring, errthang!?! I’m telling you this little boy just fills my heart with so much joy, he’s a lover.
      I am hoping to play the uke for y’all one Friday. 🙂
      Wishing a fun weekend!

  2. Oh my goodness, you are so welcome, I loved that post! Oh my heart be still a ring from your little man, how awesome!!!! Target, my $100.00 store, it just is the way of life! Ok you and my girls need to get together, they learnt to play the Ukelele this past summer!!! On our crazy road trip!!!!!

    1. You are so sweet, Ray, seriously. Thanks again!
      I love my ring, he is planning “our party” (wedding), which includes a trip to Starbucks. 🙂 I would love to get together with you and our girls, I’m slowly learning the ukelele… slowly.

  3. Your son giving you a ring is just the sweetest thing! I remember when my little brother did the same thing with my mom. So precious (and we still tease him about it! hehe). Yay for clearance candles- I can’t get enough pumpkin scents through all of fall and winter!

    I hope your weekend is full of fun!!

    xo Always, Abby

    1. Isn’t that the sweetest?!?! I’m sure my girls will tease m’boy when he gets older too. We have filmed him talking about marrying me. 😀
      Haha! I knew if anyone would appreciate a clearance pumpkin candle find, it would be you.
      Enjoy your weekend!

  4. The ukulele? Ooh, I can’t wait to hear you play. Can I be your manager when you hit the big time? That was so sweet of your son. I treasure the young and sweet days of childhood. I totally bought shoes I didn’t need at the Target clearance sale. But that’s ok because it was a) Target and b) on clearance. No other justification needed. Help, my balls are shrinking. Damn cheaters. xoxo

    1. HAHA! You haven’t heard me play yet, I’m not hitting the bigs anytime soon.
      Me too, Chastity, I hope he stays this sweet forever.
      Target and their stickers… my kryptonite. 😀
      Ahahaha!!!– you said balls and shrinking.

    1. You’re welcome, thank you for the book club. 😉
      I’m hoping to get the uke down, so I can share my own cover on a future Thank You Notes Friday.

    1. Thanks again, I’m in love with my new “bling”. 😉
      I love that little guy, such a lover.
      I cannot wait to sound like I *can* play. 😀 When I get there, I *will* share.

  5. Oh my goodness, they talked about deflated balls for like a solid 10 minutes on my morning radio station today. You know it’s huge news here! (And while some, I’m sure, take this scandal very seriously, you can’t help but laugh at Tom Brady talk about how private his balls are and he doesn’t want anyone touching them after they’ve been inflated. ::snigger::)
    Your thank you notes about your family always melt my heart, and that ring and his marriage proposal. Squee!

    1. HAHA!! I imagine things are heated over there with Brady’s deflated balls. 😀
      :: Don’t mind me I’m just laughing out loud at my own immaturity::
      Thank you, Bev, I’m glad you enjoy my notes. 🙂
      That boy, he is a sweetie, he has been planning our big day, it includes a party, a trip to Starbucks, and lunch at Zoe’s Kitchen. I know, I’m a lucky gal.

  6. My son gives the best compliments too! I haven’t gotten a marriage proposal yet, though! =) I’ve got that book on hold at the library – hope it comes in soon! We got a ukelele for my son for Christmas. If you find any good YouTube tutorials, let me know, ok?

    Have a great weekend!

    1. I’m sure your proposal is coming soon. 😉
      So far the book is good, it certainly is not what I expected.
      As far as the ukelele, I found a music teacher for kids, and I loved her videos, but I have no idea what her name is. 🙁 I’ll look into it.
      My girls and I have used this guy’s tutorials:

    1. I’m seriously in love with the bracelet. The candle is divine, I should have bought more, this one has been lit almost every day since I purchased it. 🙂

  7. I love finding good clearance deals. Kroger is my favorite store to look for clearance deals. The day after New Year’s they had a lot of their organic baking goodies of sale and I got 9 bags of Enjoy Life chocolate chips for $1.17 each. They are usually over $4 a bag. My kiddies love chocolate chip cookies and now we have a nice stash of organic chocolate chips.

    1. THAT IS A STEAL OF A DEAL!! I love Enjoy Life chocolate chips 🙂
      I’m not sure if we have a Kroger here, but I have heard of them.

    1. Thank you, I’m quite fond of my new ring. And my son, well, he’s already telling everyone I’m his wife. 😀 That boy.
      The book is pretty good so far, I’ll let you know what I think once it’s done.

  8. Love This! i keep forgetting to jot my Thank You Notes down…and I don’t remember ANYthing if I don’t write it down…I am going to definitely try to join in on this fun next week! (Please remind me… 🙂
