Welcome to Wade's World where Jeremy and Amy are just the parents, Macy is the B-A-D dog, and our two boys, Jackson and Anderson are the real stars of the show!
We are Christian conservatives who love Jesus, our families, and each other. We live somewhere in the South where we love grits, say "y'all," and know that you never, ever wear white shoes before Easter or after Labor Day no matter what Stacy London and Clinton Kelly say.
Stay tuned for what inevitably lies ahead as Amy blogs about life in Wade's World.
A week of new stuff.
So it seems as though we are almost ready for spring at our house. The boys have new matching Easter shirts and shoes.
I have a new Easter dress.
And a new swimsuit. (We can all agree to pretend that I actually look like this IN the swimsuit, right?)
And I got a GoPro Hero 4 camera! We have been playing around taking videos, and once I figure out exactly what I'm doing I'll share some of our footage. One things for sure....that is one fun piece of equipment!
So we've been super busy around here lately, and I'm once again remiss on posting any pictures. So today I'm doing a plethora of pictures (mostly for the grandmothers). These are pictures from Jackson's last basketball game, Jackson's first school dance, our town's Mardi Gras parade, Jackson and Anderson's first trip to a monster truck show, Jackson's school field trip to Tokyo Japanese restaurant, our trip to the gymnastics meet in Auburn, and Jackson's RA Pinewood Derby race this past Sunday. Enjoy the pics!
I had a dream the other night that I was one of the Kardashian
sisters, and Jeremy and I were renewing our vows. For this momentous
occasion, I had taken dress advice from Kanye and Kim, and chosen a
solid black dress. It was a beautiful (abeit, dark) dress, but the
problem was that it was strapless, but was so heavy with material, and
the top of the dress kept sliding down. Not a single one of my
Kardashian/Jenner sisters saw a problem with me flashing my top half at
my wedding renewal and reception. It was at that moment that I realized I
had been adopted into this mess.
As if that wasn't bad enough, I spent most of my wedding renewal day dodging paparazzi on a deserted stretch of an LA freeway driving around in a convertible with the top down, after I had gotten my hair done.
And Kris didn't even bother to clean house before my reception, which was taking place at her house. Talk about tasteless....
And when I woke up, I realized that I really should have had my sister's name in my dream, because Kellyn Kardashian sounds much better than Amy Kardashian.
I also realized I need to not eat black jelly beans before bed....
Jackson, Anderson and I want to wish Jeremy a very Happy 36th Birthday today! He is such a loving husband and father, and we are so blessed to have him in our lives. We love him to the moon and back, and hope his day is fantastic! And as I told him this morning, he makes 36 look good!
It seems like I've just blinked, and here we are at February 11th. Where has the month gone?
Oh yeah.....tax season.
1 kid with bronchitis....
1 kid with strep...
2 kids with the flu....
But in the midst of what has been a wild February thus far, I've almost made Star level as a Young Living distributor, which I'm super excited about, AND, I signed up as a certified Disney vacation planner with mickeyvacations.com! I created a FB page called Tomorrowland Travels with Amy Wade, and would be thrilled to help you plan a Disney vacation of your dreams.
So that's where I've been. I promise I'm alive and well (mostly), just so super busy that it feels like I'm spinning wheels from sunrise to sunset. Life is good though, and I promise I'll be better about posting!
And we had to buy a new car last week. The fuel pump went out on my paid off van, so after much wailing and gnashing of teeth, I'm the proud new owner of a 2013 Nissan Murano. I love my new ride, and think it will be a great vehicle for our family.
