It's Gonna Be a Good Day Tater

Today is going to be a good day... I can just feel it. Maybe it's the Buffalo Chicken I left cooking in the crock pot. Or the tractor I saw crossing the dirt road spillway this morning that reminded me of home. Maybe it's the abnormal mid 70's temperatures we have going on down here in Mississippi. Maybe, just maybe it's bc I finally got my work out on last night for the first time since last Thursday. And I got to run outside for the first time in months without dying of a heat stroke.
Or maybe it's because I have on what may just be my favorite Stella & Dot piece yet, The Stevie Necklace. Maybe it's because I am feeling a little refreshed in my Stella & Dot venture after I finally got to attend a fun meeting and meet some fellow stylists in the area.   Maybe it's because I learned some great new ideas and am feeling a little more confident about it all. Or maybe I am just a little excited to be running my first 5K in a while on Saturday. In my hometown. Which means a weekend with my family. Maybe it's the great nights of sleep I have gotten this week (very abnormal for me). I am not really sure what it is, but I woke up this morning with a smile my face and I like it that way. And maybe, just maybe, it's because Mary Kathryn and Ben are having..........

A BOY!!!!!

I still can't believe my little Sparkles is having a baby. Mary Kathryn (Sparky as we've always called her) has been one of my best friends since I was little. We grew up together. Played softball together. Went to church together. School together. You get the point? Ben grew up down the street from Kendol since birth. Same age. Same street. Same school. You get the point? Best friends. Soon after Kendol and I met and starting dating, these two both became single and we set them up immediately. And look at them now!!! About to be parents. I get to be an aunt again to sweet baby Cannon. 

And for all of you on Instagram, trying to hold back your comments and laughter about the "name" on mine and Mallory's message boards (middle pic, top row).... No worries!! That is most certainly not this sweet baby's name ha! Buckner and Hunter are both family names of theirs and that's what we have always picked on Sparky about since Ben is a HUGE hunter. 

He fills my life with good things.
