Happy 1st birthday baby girl

Can't believe that my sweet little niece is ONE today.

A year ago on this day was the 2nd best day of my life. (Coop being born was the 1st best day of my life) I will NEVER forget the moment when I 1st saw this beautiful little girl. 

When I held her in my arms, I started to cry and I knew we would be best friends like me and her brother. 

She is my everything. I melt when I see her when she smiles and laughs. I can go on and on and on about her, it will be a LONG post.


Swayze Blayke ...
Aunt KelKel loves you so so so so much, princess. You are my world. Happy 1st birthday my sweet, amazing niece. Hope you have a wonderful day.

Love you always and forever,
Aunt KelKel

Pray for Las Vegas

My heat is just aching for Vegas. For the people who died, for their families. For the people where were injured, fighting for their lives. May GOD be with them all during this horrible time. May he hold each of them in his arms. Let's remember these beautiful angels and their families.



I am sicken to my stomach. The hate MUST END!!!! There are some sick\crazy people in this world.

DIY headband holder

I made this yesterday. It's just a roll of paper towels and some fabric I got from Hobby Lobby. I got about 1 2\3 yards of fabric (better safe than sorry), but you can get as much you need. 

I hot glued gun mine, in beginning and then rolled it and glued it again. Then I pushed in the corners and glued it shut. 


The headbands fit perfect
