PinExt I Didnt Fall Off the Face of the Earth, You Can Now Find Me Over Here

Hey guys. So I did a really bad job of getting it out to the world that I was rebranding from Snappee Turtle!

I got all excited once I made the decision to go with it and switched all my social media accounts and transferred all these posts to my new domain and totally failed to create a post like this over here!

So you will still find all of the content that was over here on my new domain:
evamarietaylor.com

And my new shop will be opening on November 5, 2013 over here:
evamarietypography.com

Hope you come follow along!!

PinExt Five Minute Friday: Last

On Wednesday night I asked her, “How old are you going to be tomorrow?”

“Free!” She answered, because that “thuh” sound is still a bit challenging to make out.

“You’re not going to be a two year old anymore! Let mommy take a picture of you on your last day of being two.”

“Okay!” she exclaimed as she sat in the chair by the window, dangling her long for a two year old legs, and cute little feet with her yellow painted toes. Pretty little girl with a pretty purple skirt.

“Make it good. It’s your last picture as a two year old!”

She smiled like the Princess she is, and then proceeded to “make it good” by making funny faces (the face I was always told not to make or it would stretch out my mouth!) I didn’t stop her, and instead continued to snap pictures like the paparazzi.

20130823 061550 Five Minute Friday: Last

My heart was full. Full of so many emotions. So many changes over the last two weeks.

Last week was Chris’ last day at a job he worked the last 8 years. The only full-time job since college. Stella also had her last night of wearing pull ups.
Big changes in the Taylor household.

As I have been preparing Stella’s year in review post that I’m still not finished with due to the crazy amount of pictures, I also recognized all the firsts experienced this last year.

For all of us. Change can be great, yet often bittersweet. And I came to a realization:

The last time for anything always means a first for something new. And that is exciting!

Participating and linking up again with Lisa-Jo Baker for Five Minute Friday, where we all write for five minutes flat. All on the same prompt that Lisa posts on her blog at 1 minute past midnight EST every Friday. No extreme editing; no worrying about perfect grammar, font, or punctuation. Unscripted. Unedited. Real. Then we all link up our posts and hop around to read all the real and unedited posts of each other.

PinExt Wet Wash Cloths, A Birthday Tradition

Dear Stella Rose,

Happy birthday sweet Princess!

I hoped to share your year in review today in honor of your birthday, but it has taken much longer than anticipated with all the photos…(always tomorrow) so instead let’s recap your first day as a 3 year old and let you in on a little birthday tradition!

You were so funny when I got you with the wet washcloth to wake you up! You said, still half asleep, “Don’t do that…” and drifted back to sleep. But only for a few more seconds.

See, it’s a birthday tradition that your Nana and Pawpaw did to your daddy and Uncle every year on their birthday, where you take a cold wet wash cloth and get the birthday girl or boy in the face to wake up.

It’s actually quite funny, and your daddy and I have learned to be quite tricky with each other to be able to accomplish the task before the other wakes up.

For you it was hard to time out exactly when to do it. You have been sleeping in late some mornings and up at the crack of dawn other mornings. I thought you were about to wake up with the way you started moving around this morning, but I think I actually might’ve woken you up prematurely and set off the thunderous threes!

But you got up and immediately went for the long awaited Pixie Hollow fairy set and were one happy girl.

A much needed nap time ensued with bribery for ice cream.

Dinner at Chick-fil-A…playing in the play area and finishing an entire ice cream cone to yourself.

All day long in your Princess dress!

After playing with your favorite bath time Barbies and princesses, you and I decorated a little treasure box for your fairies’ shoes and laid them each down for bed. After they took a ride on the glowing unicorn, of course.

I’m glad you went to bed a happy girl, because we sure are a happy mommy and daddy!!

Happy birthday, Princess!…and we still have your celebration on Saturday!!

PinExt A Daddys Poem for His Daughter

Today marks the last day of the terrible twos. Actually, they weren’t terrible at all. I hear the threes are quite thunderous though. Pretty sure I just made that up. But you should see the way Stella jumps with both feet in the air and stomps on the ground. Sometimes she jumps, because, hey, it’s fun. And she likes to show off her skills. Other times she does it because she doesn’t get her way. I try not to laugh, because she tells me she is “fusterated.” Yea, she can create quite the thunder. icon wink A Daddys Poem for His Daughter

But really, like I always say, she is the sweetest sassy pants in all the land. And geez, she is not a baby anymore. Chris and I have been talking about the future a lot lately. What it will look like. Picturing our little girl all grown up and ready to explore the world. Start a life on her own. Unsheltered. Ready to make ideas and beliefs her own. Makes me want to hit pause in this season of her childhood just a little longer.

For her birthday, Stella’s daddy and I wanted to give her this poem he wrote for her. I of course want to make it all pretty and turn it into a print, or series of prints to frame up in her room. But I thought I’d share it here:

A Prayer for My Daughter

Someday my arms will grow weak.

I will no longer be able to lift you and hold you tight.

But for now let them remind you of the Father’s arms

that will never grow weak or let you go.

 

Someday my words will grow slow.

I will no longer be able to give advice and direction.

But for now let my words direct you

to the Savior whose words will always ring true and bring life.

 

Someday I will grow old and go to be with Jesus.

I will love you every day until then.

But for now let my life be a comparison

though pale of the Father’s love for you.

 

Someday I will no longer be your “Prince Charming.”

A good man will fill that role.

But for now let this prince point you to

the King of Kings who brings everlasting life and life to the fullest.

 

With everlasting love,

Your Daddy

~Christopher R. Taylor

PinExt Seriously, The Dog Ate My Ideas

Stella’s birthday is this Thursday. I would say how much I can’t believe she is already going to be 3 and how fast time has flown, but I’m pretty sure I’ve said that already!

The fun thing about a 3rd birthday party is that she actually has opinions about what she wants which makes me want to do something special for her that she might actually remember! But then again those opinions of a toddler change. A lot. Like how we were walking in Walmart and she is excited about her Mint E Stripes Lalaloopsy party, until she sees all the Barbies and whatever else has you pinching yourself and wondering why you took her down that aisle in the first place!

She doesn’t want a Lalaloopsy doll anymore. Sigh. Well good thing I didn’t start on any decorations!

Actually, a few months ago I got all excited about throwing her an Under the Sea Party. I had a secret Pinterest board and everything! It was getting serious up in here! You see, Ariel is her favorite Disney Princess, and she even wanted to dress like her with red hair and the whole kit and caboodle!

The theme of her party was solidified when we were looking through this book:

20130820 000427 Seriously, The Dog Ate My Ideas

She loves to flip through the pages, and so do I. Super creative cake, cookie and cupcake ideas galore, I tell ya! We got to the page that had an octopus made of cupcakes and clam shells out of cookies, and I was all like, “I can do that! I’m totally doing that!” Stella was excited, too!

I was coming up with a bunch of darling food and decorating ideas on top of all the ones derived from our friend Pinterest. We even highly considered renting a cabana at the nearest water park as part of Stella’s present from my mom.

The sand in the time capsule was falling quickly, and then what you only heard as an excuse to the teacher in school happened. My super long list of ideas that I wrote out on paper (because making lists are fun) got half way eaten by our dog!

Our poor dog has been on a diet and thyroid medicine prescribed by our vet. Poor thing went through a phase where she must’ve just been really hungry still, because we would come home to her having eaten random pieces of paper or cardboard. This time it happened to be MY LIST!

So with less than 3 weeks left, I had no solidified place to have an Under the Sea Party (and I was set on having it near water for this theme) and no guest list or invitations sent. On top of that, a major life change with Chris starting a new job yesterday, taking on babysitting jobs, getting ready for a bridal connection event, custom orders, prepping for the Sashes Market at Influence…just an overwhelming to do list. I need a manager! (Oh wait, I’m supposed to be the manager!)

I thought, seriously?! It’s a 3rd birthday party. No invitations need to be sent. She doesn’t have to invite a bunch of friends (that I would want to create goodie bags for). Let’s just have it be family! (Pretty sure this is what happened last year). At least we went all out for her first birthday, because duh, that’s what you do. Homemade 3 tiered fondant cake and all!

All last week I kept asking Stella what she wanted for her birthday. She kept saying she wanted a big Lalaloopsy doll. She even picked out the one she wanted. Mint E Stripes. Super cute!

So it was decided. I was still going to come up with some cute Mint E Stripes Lalaloopsy treats and small decorations for our dining table and call it a day. But then she changed her mind on what she wants…just yesterday! Really, she said, “I don’t want a Lalaloopsy anymore.” …I want this…and this… Oh good heavens.

So I’m pretty sure I’m going to make the call and just go somewhere for her to be her silly self and have fun for her birthday celebration! The park, the splash pad, the zoo, Chuck E Cheese…heck…the playground at Chick-fil-A! Where no one needs to plan any decorations or food…just the time and place!

Hooray to all the super moms out there that don’t flake out like me. But this mama is stressed, and I just want our sweet Stella bear to have fun on her birthday, eat cake and lots of ice cream!

linkupbutton Seriously, The Dog Ate My Ideas“Social media and online relationships can make us feel like everyone else has it all together. We’re edited, proof-read, Pinterest-perfect versions of ourselves (or so some might think!) when – in reality? There is an unfinished pile of laundry around the corner. That cute toddler smiling for the camera just had a massive meltdown seconds ago. That yummy breakfast-for-dinner you just showed us on Instagram? It’s because the cat licked the chicken that was supposed to be for dinner.

“Behind the Scenes” is a fun link up where we show those photos – but tell the real story behind them. The sneak peek behind the scenes, a look past the edges of the photo to the real life behind it. Read more here!”

PinExt Dear Weekend: Oh Hi Ball State and Wedding Shenanigans

Dear Weekend,
You were quite eventful, including a stroll through memory lane on Ball State’s campus and you were full of wedding festivities.

Friday night Stella and I were meeting up with Chris and the wedding party for the rehearsal dinner, but since we were almost an hour early I thought I’d take a trip down memory lane. I’m not really sure how long it’s been since I’ve driven through Ball State’s campus, but wowzers, a lot has changed in the last 8 years!

Here’s the first corner I ever worked (no, no, no, selling pizzas, silly!!) Greek’s Pizzeria, best pizza on the planet, I tell ya! But do you see that mess across the street?
20130819 090921 Dear Weekend: Oh Hi Ball State and Wedding Shenanigans

Yea, this mess below. This used to be “The Village.” The main strip of BSU nightlife, where nothing good ever went down. Ha! And now, it’s gone! Which means The Locker Room, is even more like a can of sardines than it was 8 years ago! But I hear by next year there will be a new strip built with apartments above the businesses and more parking.
20130819 091244 Dear Weekend: Oh Hi Ball State and Wedding Shenanigans

Oh good ole Woodworth (aka the Nunnery). I remember when you were one of the nicest dorms on campus. Mainly because it was all girls and no smelly, dirty boys stinkin’ up the place. And how I miss your fire drills in the middle of winter, often times in the middle of a shower. But just from the looks of the outside, you’re kinda like how Lafollette was way back when compared to all the new fancy schmancy dorms.

20130819 091357 Dear Weekend: Oh Hi Ball State and Wedding Shenanigans

Wow, DeHority. You’ve definitely cleaned up a bit! You’re like one of those people that would surprise everyone at a 10 or 20 year high school reunion! And that snobby Woodworth would be put to shame.

20130819 091408 Dear Weekend: Oh Hi Ball State and Wedding Shenanigans

Oh, Kacy J’s. You were definitely not Vince’s. When did that place close by the way? Really though, you should have been ready for a wedding party that’s been on the books and made sure you had enough of everything on your special menu just for the party. Lima beans as the vegetable of the day? Really? Who eats those?

20130819 092159 Dear Weekend: Oh Hi Ball State and Wedding Shenanigans

The presentation was was lacking, but my filet mignon was pretty good…so good job on that…except you ran out of them! But Chris was happy with his 12 oz New York Strip since it was actually more steak than the 8 oz filet. And the mac n cheese started out with penne pasta and then basically just ended up as cheesy linguine. I guess you ran out of noodles, too! Did your manager recently quit or something? Hey, you did what you could…and we still had a lot of fun joking about it.

20130819 092216 Dear Weekend: Oh Hi Ball State and Wedding Shenanigans

At least the view was still worth it!

20130819 092227 Dear Weekend: Oh Hi Ball State and Wedding Shenanigans

The day of the wedding arrived, and of course I had to make a wedding card that matched the wedding colors!

20130819 092513 Dear Weekend: Oh Hi Ball State and Wedding Shenanigans

Stella was mentally preparing for the pure awesomeness she would exude on the dance floor.

20130819 092530 Dear Weekend: Oh Hi Ball State and Wedding Shenanigans

We stopped at Nana and Pawpaw’s to hang out for the 3 hours before the wedding that Chris and the rest of the wedding party would be taking pictures. They surprised her with an early birthday present to keep at their house when she comes for sleepovers.

20130819 092733 Dear Weekend: Oh Hi Ball State and Wedding Shenanigans

20130819 092744 Dear Weekend: Oh Hi Ball State and Wedding Shenanigans

Stella and I got all fancied up to meet one fine looking groomsman. See those cute shoes? Yea, I pretty much opted for black feet rather than blisters. There’s not too much in the name of beauty that I will sacrifice for…so they made their appearance and took a nap under the table the rest of the evening!

20130819 093703 Dear Weekend: Oh Hi Ball State and Wedding Shenanigans

20130819 093750 Dear Weekend: Oh Hi Ball State and Wedding Shenanigans

Sanuks…pretty cool groomsmen’s gift. Agree?

20130819 093805 Dear Weekend: Oh Hi Ball State and Wedding Shenanigans

20130819 093820 Dear Weekend: Oh Hi Ball State and Wedding Shenanigans

20130819 093832 Dear Weekend: Oh Hi Ball State and Wedding Shenanigans

Pretty sure it couldn’t have been a more gorgeous day and night for an outdoor wedding!

20130819 094656 Dear Weekend: Oh Hi Ball State and Wedding Shenanigans

20130819 094712 Dear Weekend: Oh Hi Ball State and Wedding Shenanigans

20130819 094729 Dear Weekend: Oh Hi Ball State and Wedding Shenanigans

20130819 094741 Dear Weekend: Oh Hi Ball State and Wedding Shenanigans

Entertainment for days. From the oodles of kids’ activity packs being passed out throughout the night, to $1 dances, twisting the night away, running around out in the lawn with all the little girls that just so happened to be her age…our little Princess might have had the most fun of all!

20130819 100500 Dear Weekend: Oh Hi Ball State and Wedding Shenanigans

Check out these hand motions! Watch out “So You Think You Can Dance!”

20130819 100532 Dear Weekend: Oh Hi Ball State and Wedding Shenanigans

20130819 100550 Dear Weekend: Oh Hi Ball State and Wedding Shenanigans

20130819 100603 Dear Weekend: Oh Hi Ball State and Wedding Shenanigans

Of course, Stella couldn’t even get off the dance floor for the garter toss.

20130819 100618 Dear Weekend: Oh Hi Ball State and Wedding Shenanigans

20130819 100631 Dear Weekend: Oh Hi Ball State and Wedding Shenanigans

We really had so much fun, but once again, Chris and I failed to get a picture together just like we did the night before. It’s not that often we get dressed up, and we ALWAYS forget to take a picture!

20130819 100954 Dear Weekend: Oh Hi Ball State and Wedding Shenanigans

Sunday I snatched these babies up for free on the side of the road as I was leaving my friend Shelli’s house. I’m not exactly sure what I will do with them. Maybe just paint and distress them and hang them up as decorations. What would you do with these windows?

How was your weekend?

PinExt F is for Friday: Because Its Been a While

It’s been a while since I’ve done a F is For Friday post, so it’s a double post kind of a day!

F is for Fashion

Chris is in a wedding this weekend, and I got to make a quick trip to Tar-jay to pick up a little something for myself and Stella bear (thanks in-laws!) I think I did a pretty good job bargain hunting and all within 30 minutes…that’s a record! The dress was already on clearance for $18, but it was missing the belt so I asked for an extra discount. They gave me 10%…I’ll take it! And Stella bear really wanted this polka dot dress…only $12! I think it’s a $29 bucks well spent!

F is for Family

Yesterday was Chris’ last day at a job he’s been for the last 8 years. His boss’ wife called me on Monday about Stella and I surprising him for lunch on his last day for a little surprise going away party. He thought the party was just for his friend getting married this weekend but it was a little send off for him too. Stella enjoyed pretending to be busy at work at daddy’s desk…and of course the fabulousness catered in by Cheesecake Factory!

F is for Faith

I am loving the series at church on Godly families. The past few weeks have been focused on marriage, and last night’s service did not disappoint! I wish I would have written down all the differences our pastor listed off between men and women, because it was super funny. Like how men do not ask other men to come to the bathroom with them or borrow clothes like women do…or have their day ruined if someone else is wearing the same outfit as them at a party. Last night’s service focused on men and their needs, and next week is the ladies turn for the men to get some pointers. Chris and I have a great marriage. Not perfect by any means, and often hard…but we wouldn’t trade each other for the world.

F is for Food & Fitness

So I must confess! I’ve fallen off the band wagon a bit on this whole fit lifestyle thing. I was really gung ho about it for a good month. Then various things got in the way of our weekly running group, and we all know I didn’t run on my own. Something about running with a jogging stroller that isn’t my cup of tea!

So last week I decided I need to get more serious again. After not having run for a whole month, I told my friends we would run as far as I could go, and I didn’t want to know how far we had run. By the time I was ready to take a breather we had run 2 miles! The farthest I had been able to go before was 1.3 miles. So I was excited…unfortunately with this sinus pressure and horrible head cold I’ve had all week, I missed out on running this week. Don’t worry, I only had a few bites of the cheesecake yesterday…and some buffalo wings (and those lettuce wraps from there are to.die.for!) But hey, it was a celebration!

F is for Fun

I was supposed to announce this on Wednesday, but better late than never! For a little back story, please read this from earlier this week. I am still brainstorming new products to help support Megan and Michelle, but for now I will be donating 50% of all the proceeds from any Africa related item in my Etsy shop for this whole next year they will be living on mission in Tanzania, Africa. For now I have cards and prints available and soon will be making some coasters again!

Happy Friday friends!! Big plans for this weekend?

PinExt Five Minute Friday: Small

She pushes over the step stool to turn on the bathroom light. Steps down and shuffles her way over to her pink princess potty seat, with the proud look on her face. She made it through the whole night in big girl panties with no accidents!

Still small, but tall for her age. Just a skinny minny who seems to weigh the same amount she did 6 months ago! But she’s growing in more than just her height. Her vocabulary and capacity to learn. To try new things. To show compassion. To cry when Tinkerbelle flies away from her human friend and says, “I’ll never forget you.”

20130816 001942 Five Minute Friday: Small

She’s just a small child, but she has a huge heart. And a growing love for Jesus. When she prays she tells God, “Thank you for our blessings. Have a nice day and have a fun day. And thank you for our food. Amen!”

Every day when the morning sun peeks through the curtains, she asks, “Mommy, did Jesus turn the light on?” Such a big world for such a small little bundle of joy.

Then today, she wanted to do something she wasn’t capable of yet. She said, “I can’t wait to be a grown up like you.” I said, “Oh honey, enjoy being a child! One day you will be a grown up like mommy and wish you were a child again.”

Thankfully, I can be a small child again…through her eyes.

PinExt Closing a Chapter

I am sure today is full of mixed emotions and a lot of sadness. For it all to sink in that it’s your last day doing a job you’ve done for 8 years, let alone the relationships that have been built, has to be hard.

You’re right that you’ve spent your whole adult life there, straight out of college. It’s what you know. It’s what you’ve grown comfortable with. This is a huge change, and change doesn’t come naturally for you.

20130815 082129 Closing a Chapter

But as this chapter closes, I know there are great things ahead. The next chapter will be rocky, but what’s a good story without those chapters, too? I’m excited for the path The Lord is leading us, and I love to talk and dream with you about the future of our family.

I just want you to know how proud I am of you. The man you are. The husband and father you are. And how honored and thankful I am to be your wife.

Thank you for stepping out of your comfort zone by even looking into this new job.

Thank you for trusting God’s plan for our family.

Thank you for risking 8 years to start something new that would provide for our family.

Thank you for following God’s lead and telling me it was time to stay home and trusting in God’s provision.

Thank you for loving us, caring for us, looking out for us, leading us, and sacrificing for us.

As your last day at work unfolds, I hope you feel appreciated and that you will be missed. You are such a blessing! I love you!

P.S. There’s nothing better to start this day off right than watered down coffee …well maybe the only thing better could be spilled coffee beans, right?! {wink} love you!!
