A Baby! & More!

No not me silly! haha
But I thought that was a good blog post title to get your attention ;)
Man this weekend has flown by!
I had a million things going on, and lots of things to share about :)
First and most importantly...I have blogged about my friend Kelly before... I think the last one was actually her so cute prego pictures done by the fabulous Alicia :)

Well you may notice on her belly in the pic on the right, due date is Dec 29th ... no sir, that little baby was ready to come out YESTERDAY!!

Baby Mack entered the world at 11:06am weighing 5lbs 12 oz :)
Congrats Kelly & Garrett!!

His cute little stocking on the hospital nursery window!

After he got all cleaned up :) So cute! Look at all that hair!!
I can't wait to hold him! More pics to come I'm sure haha

Next on the agenda... I found Frankie's twin brother on Pinterest ... and in reindeer attire no less ...

How CUTE is that??
Too bad my photo of Frankie isn't quite as professional and nice as his twin's haha
That's a cute idea for next year's Christmas card though!

Last night was my RE/MAX office Christmas Party!
Chris & I
I didn't get very good pics :(
But I did get my fave make up girl at MAC to put eyelashes on for me :)
gross pic, but look at those falsies ha!

Ok lastly...
If you know me, you know I have been SERIOUSLY contemplating getting a tattoo on my wrist for a while now. I think they are cute! And I also think it's a great place on my body to get this particular one for two reasons:
Reason #1-  I will be able to see it daily and it will be a great reminder for me
Reason #2- With all the arm candy I usually am dressed in, if I ever have the desire to hide it, I can do so super easily with a bracelet or something :) See below pic for previous arm candy post!

So while thinking about this over the last two months I have gotten several "signs" if you will, that I should go for it. I won't bore you with those, but they were definitely signs ha.
I stumbled across some interesting tattoo related things on Pinterest...

White tattoos? Hmm.. that's different!

A bracelet tattoo... ok that's pretty cute!

Now I hope you can read this because this is funny....

That'll make ya think about whether or not you should get a tattoo right?
If I follow this chart, then I should get the tat ... ;)
Very logical. Ha.
What I want to get, because I know you're wondering and I've held the suspense, is a little saying that means a lot to me...
"It is well with my soul"
If you grew up in church, you may be familiar with the hymn that these words come from.
Well that song was my grandmother's very favorite... I can hear her singing it in my head (a familiar sound that I hope doesn't go away with age)... I love the words to the song... 
If you aren't familiar, here are the lyrics...and a YouTube video by one of my favorite Christian groups, Hillsong United!
**Pause my Christmas Playlist at the bottom of the page before you watch!!**

I love it. I get chills every time I hear it. At church I usually get teary eyed, people are probably like what is going on with this girl? It was played at my grandmother's funeral, and since then, I am loose cannon when it comes on LOL not a joke.

So I think getting these simples words on my wrist will not only remind me of her when I look down at it, but also remind me that no matter what happens in life, stressful times, emotional struggles, happy or not so happy times, sad or mourning, sick or healthy, excited or thankful...
 it is well with my soul because someone bigger than me has it under control.  :)
These fonts below I saw on Pinterest and I think I am leaning towards "Feel Script"... 

It's readable, but beautiful too :)
Soooo... what do you think?? Anybody have one on their wrist now that they regret? Actually don't tell me! Ha! I don't want to know! I think I have made up my mind :)
Hope you had a great weekend!

  1. Aww Mack is so cute! Love the hair and the name! Good luck on the tatoo decision! I don't have one so no advice here!

  2. I have one on my foot and am thinking about getting another one on my wrist as well! I love that song, too! It's my daddy's favorite song (Im a daddy's girl!)
    I think it's a good idea! Go for it! :)

  3. I have a tattoo on my wrist and I love it!! Like you said, it's easy to cover but you'll also see it everyday. I wear a watch and other bracelets everyday so people rarely even notice is. I got mine in light blue (sounds ugly but it's actually really pretty!) so its not quite as obvious as black ink. I think you will be glad you got it :) and that is one of my favorite songs !!

  4. I have 3 tattoos, and my next will be on my wrist! I love them. I think that quote is so pretty; I've never heard that song, but love the meaning behind it. Please let us know if or when you do it!

  5. I have a tiny pink heart on my wrist, It's so small and dainty. Most people don't even see it but when they do, I get a ton of compliments on it.

  6. I have one on my wrist and of all my tattoos it is hands down my fave. So many I have I can't even see - so what is the point? This one - I see every day and it's all diff colors and very girly and I love it. Love it so much I want one on my other wrist!

  7. Feel is my signature font!! Love it!!! That is the font I use for 'PinkLouLou'

    I LOVE the white tattoos' my friend has one with her and her hubs initials on her wrist, and you can only see it if you know it is there and you look for it. So cute! Keep us posted!

  8. oh my goodness! Baby Mack is the sweetest little bundle!!!

    you looked gorrgeous for your office party!

    and last but not least OMG i have a tattoo on my wrist! in white ink!! i do i do! and i LOVE it every day, without question. i photocopied my mom's signature from some old papers i had of hers and took that with me and had them do the first letter of her name in her handwriting. i love the white ink, but once it heals, it does NOT look like the picture you really mellows out and is difficult to see unless you point it out to someone and even then, sometimes i show people and they look at me ike i'm crazy, but i don't care. i love it and it's beautiful. with it being so delicate like that, i kind of feel like it is just for me, and that makes me love it even more.....

    and last but not least (!) i just downloaded the Feel Font on friday and i am obsessed with it. it is the best font i have ever seen. ever ever.

  9. I have a wrist tattoo and love it! It's a Phoenix which means so much to me. I got it done in a grey so it wouldn't be noticeable...and half the time people think it's fake (b/c it is so light) or they don't notice.
    If you ever want to cover it up, Sephora sells make up by Kat Von D (famous tattoo artist). Even Ulta has something as well. I've never tried either product, but thought the information would be helpful!!

  10. I have a pink ribbon on my wrist and out of the three that I have I'll just warn you, it was the most painful! I wanted believe in white ink forever, but decided at the last minute on the pink ribbon which means more to me. I love it and don't regret it at all and it can so easily be covered, but it did hurt and bled A LOT and the healing took a while, but in the end it was so worth it.

  11. I think that font will look good! A friend of mine got the initials of her sisters on her wrists and I always thought it looked awesome. Unfortunately, being a lawyer means people see my wrists all the time when I shake their hands - so it's not an option for me.

    I love that phrase though.

  12. I've been trying to remember to post a comment on this post since you wrote it. Girl, if you get a tattoo, I will go with. I have wanted one for literally 5 years. Kev isn't the biggest fan, but hey- can't win em all :) xoxoxo

  13. I juar saw this post. I love that song. Amazing. I've been thinking of getting a tattoo too. I want "faith" somewhere. Love the white ink idea. Let's do it together!!!!!


I love reading your comments and questions!
