Oh What a Beautiful Morning

My plans for today got cancelled so we turned this into a day at home (for the most part). Harper is down for a nap right now and I know that my two projects for the week are the yard and the closet but right now I'm so tired I think I'm going to lay on the couch and watch a DVR'd show and nap myself (when I finish this post). Now not only does Harper get up every few hours but she has decided that 5:30 is a great time to start the day. I got her to stay in bed until 6 this morning but that was it. The child has NO NEED for sleep.
I have a new guest post on my bank's blog about getting rid of debt - you'll have to check it out and let me know what you think! I'm always still open to suggestions on any money topics you might have for future posts there.
So many of you asked where my friend Melissa got Harper's hair band - and this is WHERE!


Okay - ya'll really made me feel like I could try a scarf so I got a $5 scarf at Wal-Mart and decided to try and wear it today. Because Harper and I had to go to where else - Wal-Mart for groceries this morning. I couldn't find my little camera so I could take a picture but my video camera was laying out so I took a little video. This could not be cheesier but I'll put it on here anyway. I'm also trying to remind myself that the camera adds 10 pounds (or is it 25?) ha!
P.S. See the rose in a vase on my kitchen counter? Harper and I went for a walk this morning in this beautiful fall weather (and Dawson tagged along too) and my neighbor came out and cut me a rose from one of her bushes. What a great way to start my week!


P.P.S. I'm sorry my filming skills remind you of the Blair Witch Project. And also - it cracks me up when I wear something new - Harper will stare at it. Yesterday I wore a flower band in my hair to church and Harper kept looking up at it and then looking at me and she would just smile. I can't wait until she can make little comments on how I look - even though I know they may be too honest! ha!

Hope your week is off to a great start also!

amelia said...

ADORABLE! It is so fun reading your blog. You seem like such a fun, nice person and your baby is just adorable! It's also fun to read about your bargains, I'm a bargain shopper too! Have a great day, Kelly and Harper!

Hers and His said...

I can relate to the sleep deprivation! I about fell over when I took Lincoln for his 6 month checkup and the doctor told me most babies his age get 5-6 hours of sleep during the day and 8-10 at night. In my dreams!

Chris, Crystal, and Weston said...

Kelly,

My son came up to the laptop while I was watching your video...when it ended...he said "Hers pretty" (he just turned three, so excuse his subject/verb agreement..hehe)...So, I guess he liked the scarf, too!!!

Have a great week.

K. Joy said...

The scarf looks great! Especially with the purple shoes! I am a newer reader of your blog and I just love all that you have to say! Harper is adorable and your story is incredible! Looking forward to 'getting to know you' even more! I live in MN so I little bit of climate difference too! Alright - take care!

kimert said...

You can definitely pull of a scarf!! Love the purple shoes, too! :) Harper is waaaay tooo cute!

Harris Family said...

I am sure our girls will be as honest with us as we were with our moms. Oh man, I am in trouble! Tell Harper her mommy needs a little sleep and to sleep in later in the morning! I am gonna be praying for you cause we are battling sleep, too, and it is hard! Mommies also need sleep, too!

Nati @ I will praise Him said...

You two are just too cute! Seriously!
And the scarf (and the shoes) are really looking good on you!

Greetings all the way from Germany!

I enjoyed reading your money post on paying down credit card debt. I, too, am using the snowball method. One at a time. Luckily, I am only 22 and am thankful that I have caught on early to finding a solution before debt gets out of hand. Also, you look very cute in the scarf -- Harper is adorable!!

Sassy and Classy Southern Mrs. said...

You can totally pull the scarf look off! I have one in every color and I was even on such a kick last year that I got some at gap that were t-shirt material and so comfy to wear on random days. I even have some dressy ones, they are one of my favorite accesories!

Bryan and Ashlan said...

Yall are too cute!! You pulled of the scarf very well.

Shanna said...

I loved the video./...and you don't look like a dork in the scarf!

The Smittys said...

I struggle to wear anything that is not yoga pants and a t-shirt. Well, I decided to try something new! I wore a new shawl last fall with some jeans and boots. I thought I looked pretty darn cute. Well, my 3 year old son brought me back to earth. He asked why I was wearing my Halloween costume! You look darling!

Gayle @ thewestiecrew said...

Kelly! It looks CUTE!!

I always feel like a big dork too when I first wear things like that, but you'll get used to it. :D

Jenglamgirl said...

CAN I JUST Say HOW CUTE YOU ARE! you are so darling, and so is Harper. I love how she looks at you with such admiring eyes. She loves her mom in the cute scarf and cute purple ballet flats too. You are so NOT a dork in the scarf.

Amanda said...

I never used to think I could pull off the scarf look either! But now I'm more comfortable with it. I think it looks super cute on you! Love the shoes too! Oh, and Harper is just adorable!

Mike and Cymbre said...

I love the scarf! I have yet to try one myself!

Heather said...

You are rockin' that scarf! Love it! You and Harper are too cute!
Hope you got that well-deserved nap!

Oh, And maybe you could get a Video Clip of Harper and your Parents , Uncle Chris and Aunt Carrie , Scott's Parents sometime soon

Lindsay said...

I love the scarf....not dorky at all! Plus they are perfect with those purple flats!

Lauren said...

I'm sure the scarf looks great, but I was a little distracted by the CUTIE little baby you were holding. My goodness, she's a doll.

Jenna said...

I've been following your blog since Harper was born and just want to say I think you're adorable. You always look so put together and proper and are exactly how I picture a Southern Belle. I love the scarf and have also been trying to wear them more. I own two of the $5 Wal-mart specials! Love your accent. I think I could listen to you talk all day long!

Beth said...

I love the scarf and the shoes...love the purple with the black! Harper was so cute watching you in the video!

Lacy McMillon said...

You don't have your email address up anymore, so I couldn't email you this. I hope this link works. I saw this and immediately thought of you. That probably sounds weird since I don't know you, but I feel like I do since I've been following your blog for a while now.

And I thought Aggies were obsessed!!

Staci said...

The scarf looks great! You can definitely pull it off!

Sarah said...

I just LOVE reading your blog! Harper is just too cute for words and so are you! :) I do have to ask where on earth you find her most precious and wonderful outfits? I am newly preggers and would love to know where to start some early shopping of my own - thanks so much.

Joanna Noel said...

The scarf looks really good on you! Harper was so cute in the film..I love her smile's and her laugh!!

Kathryn said...

It was so neat to get to hear your voice! You are darling with the scarf on, and Harper is just too cute for words!

Courtney said...

You look beautiful! I love the scarf!

Raining Pearls said...

Love the scarf! That Harper is a cutie, she is always so happy :)

Jenna said...

Just when I thought you couldn't be cuter - you go and add a scarf and I have to totally re-adjust my cuteness scale. :-) ULTIMATE darlingness happening in that video, my sweet friend!

Alison said...

The scarf is too cute! I have to tell you that Harper has grown and changed since your last pictures of her. She's too cute.
I also saw you the other day when I was going to the WC Children's clinic. I wanted to stop and say hi, but I had to get some meds back to the hospital.
You must have been taking Harper to her follow up visit.
Alison

Emily said...

You look so cute and your voice just cracks me up. I am from TN and I can only imagine how southern I sound. You girls are so cute!

Jessica said...

That was such a cute video! The scarf is great and Harper is too cute with her happy smile!

The Irish Lass said...

I had to watch the video twice just to see Harper laughing in the background- so awesome! What a happy baby!!

SAS said...

You crack me up! I love it! I also want to wear a scarf...but feel like a total dork. I still don't have the guts to do the legging thing under the dress. Really want to but my husband laughs at me so I always chicken out! :)

Ada said...

You look great! The scarf and shoes complete the outfit :-) By the way, Harper is adorable!!!

Nichole said...

If you take the scarf, and fold it in half (length wise), then put it around your neck, and put the two free ends through the loop you've created on the other end, you'll get that 'look' the cool kids can pull off with the scarfs.

I hope that made sense. LOL!

Lindsay Meyer said...

Your video is hilarious! Scarf is so cute! I just bought like 6 of those in Istanbul where they are very high quality (cashmere blend) and very cheap!

Thanks for the daily dose of laughter. Harper is growing so fast!!

The Barron's said...

You are so cute!! And Harper is adorable too. The scarf looks great, I love the shoes. You always look so put together. I loved the video message too. :-)

pendy said...

I feel like a dork in a scarf, too, but I plan on trying again this year.

You and Harper are so stinkin' cute! Love how she's laughing at you.

Kristin said...

You and Harper are just too cute! I love the video and how she smiles when you smile! Anytime I try to add a new accessory or something I'm not used to, I feel so weird too, but I think you looked great!

Jenn@the loves of jenn said...

That scarf looks great and Harper is so adorable with her big ole smile! Adorable!

Ashley Jo Anglin said...

I am a scarf girl. I love them. I have noticed lots and lots of scarves around lately. Looks really cute. :)

Oh, and your hair and makeup looks cute today. Hope you and Harper had a great day!!

Susy said...

You look great! And you crack me up!! ;)

Life with my sweeties said...

Girl, you are so funny!!! Love the scarf and Harper is such a cutie!!!

ONCRN said...

Very cute! I tried the scarf thing for the first time to wear to MOPS, and my four year old looked at me and said "Mommy, you look silly!" So, that's what you have to look forward to.

lauren said...

Harper is adorable!

Alyssa said...

You're adorable! And of COURSE, so is Harper! Her eyes look so green in that first picture!

Linda said...

cute video!

Todd and Courtney said...

Cutest video EVER!

Miranda Tucci said...

The scarf looks GREAT!! :) Maybe Harper could wear a little one too ;)

Linda said...

Kelly, I loved the video with your cute accent. Harper was smiling so cute and watching you so closely.

You are not a dork! You could wear anything and be beautiful. I really like scarves. They stretch your wardrobe and add interest to plain outfits. Plus they add a little warmth.

Keep the videos coming it makes us feel like we are there with you and Harper. It was fun!

Linda @ Truthful Tidbits

Kodi said...

You are so cute! I think you pull off a scarf very well.

Cindy said...

Cute, cute. Love the video and the scarf!

The Efirds said...

Like the scarf! Last year I had a little girl in my 1 year old SS class that always loved to look at my shoes! Each Sunday she would come in and show me hers and then look at mine! Naia's pretty honest about what I wear and when I try something new she always has a comment!

Amanda M. said...

AWW! Too cute! You are a couple of beautiful ladies. And I just LOVE the shoes & scarf. Looks FAB! :)

Sarah said...

Seriously, y'all both couldn't be any cuter!

Melanie said...

You and Harper are just too cute for words.

Teresa @ Grammy Girlfriend said...

You are the cutest...and could you come and clean out my closet when you finish yours....A JOB I have put off for several weeks..one of my least favorite jobs...

amy said...

Oh WOW...you two are a mighty precious duo! TOO CUTE!

Lindsay said...

Your daughter is ADORABLE and you were so cute in that video. I agree with everyone you can totally rock a scarf!

tickledpink said...

What a cute video! You look GREAT in a scarf! Big Mama did a video awhile back on different ways to tie them, and that helped me out because I wanted to wear them different ways! I love the purple flats! You look too cute!

The Niemeyer Nest said...

Kelly - Don't worry Evie is waking up a ton too! AHHHHH! I am so exhausted. What would we do if we had to go into work every day. Maybe they will grow out of this soon! Love the scarf!

sandy said...

I think the scarf looks fabulous!

The Simmons Family said...

That video was adorable! Purple is totally IN so you're good. :)

Susan said...

Kelly,

You look so cute in a scarf. I wear mine wrapped loosely around my neck. I start it in the front at the 1/2 way point, cross it in the back and bring it around front. It hangs really nice and keeps my neck warm when it is breezy out. I never wear it really tight around my neck, just a little loose, sort of like a cowl neck. Try that and see if you like it. It looks adorable!!

Have fun...scarves really make an old outfit feel new and a boring outfit exciting!!

Susan

Amy said...

Love the scarf - you TOTALLY pull it off! - and LOVE the video with you and Harper. I, like everyone else, would love to see videos of you two daily. Surely, you have time, right? ;)

You guys are so precious!

Abby♥ said...

aww y'all are so cute! :)

Stylish Housewife said...

Love the scarf! You don't look like a dork! And love your accent.

Amy said...

Haprer is SO precious! And I love the scarf!

Kimberly said...

Kelly,
I just love getting my dose of SOUTHERN from your little videos. Its so cute to hear that from waaay up here in Canada. I know what you mean about scarves though, I am the same way, I think I look like a dork in them - but for the record, it looks great on you.
Hugs,
Kimberly

Ashley said...

Okay, I am dying laughing! Avery has that SAME outfit!!!! So coming over for photo shoots!!!!

HUGS!!!!

Lindsay said...

love the scarf. you can even google ways to tie a scarf and you'll get a bunch of different ideas. I love it though! one of my favorites is just to wear it untied around a peacoat. :)

Maryellen said...

The scarf is great ! And oh that Harper just smiling and smiling during the whole video. Do we have a movie star in the making hah
Just loved seeing you both . . .

Maryellen

Melissa's Thoughts said...

I'm sure Harper is saying, I hope I hope I look just like you when i grow up. Love that little face and purple was a good choice.

Summer said...

You look too cute in that scarf! I think it looked like Harper confirmed how cute it is Ha! Ha! I loved the video.... How funny :0)

Melissa Miller said...

Very sweet photos! :)

Ashlee said...

I thought the video was precious! Harper's smiles are just too perfect! The scarf looks great. I also love Harper's outfit... I just got one just like it for Blair today at Sam's!

Rachel said...

LOVE the video clip !! Harper really hams it up for the camera !!!!

~jessicaleigh said...

O Sweet Goodness! You are Harper are both soooo PRESH!~You can TOTALLY pull of the scarf, LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! :)

Abby said...

I thought that your bank post was perfect! People need to pay off debt and giving them a possible way of doing it. My hubby and I came into our marriage with a bit of debt (me more than him). But this is exactly what we did. (We're both bankers so we sat down at the computer and put it all into an Excel sheet.) This has helped us get to the point of only one credit card that will be paid off next month and a car that will be paid off in two months!

Paying off debt is so freeing! Ahhh!

On another note, you're video is so cute!

dg darling said...

Just wait...My daughter once asked me why my butt was so much bigger than that lady's...(in Kmart). What a little darling!!!

Susan said...

Looks awesome!! cute cute video :)

aLena said...

You're so adorable in your home video ;) and I Luv the scarf and shoes

Scarves are a must for me in cold weather... they keep me sooo warm even if the rest of my outfit doesn't Lol

thesloothaaks said...

I love the stripey apple outfit that Harper is wearing. I saw it at the store last weekend and almost bought it for my little one, but passed. I wasn't sure how it would look on, but it's so darling!! I might just have to go back and pick it up! :)

Kandi West said...

CRACK ME UP! Love it...I'm not sure what I love more...your accent, Harper grinning at you as if you are a full blown Barnum & Bailey circus, or that you feel the need to let us know exactly how much your scarf and shoes cost. :-) I think you pulled off the scarf well. I, too, want to try a scarf but I feel like people are staring at me if I wear one. I'm determined to do it this year. Absolutely, positively determined! You inspired me.

Dustin & Kate said...

Great post for the bank blog! Kuddos to you for giving such practical and encouraging advice.

Thanks for always writing such upbeat posts on your blog. I have my own blog and I keep up with friends' and family members' blogs, but yours is the ONLY blog by someone I don't know that I read on a daily basis! I'm not sure what it is, but I feel a real connection with a lot of what you write.

Keep up the good work! Blessings from one stay at home mom to another. :)

Kate

Melanie said...

You can definitely pull of the scarf trend! I can't wait for it to get cooler here in TX so I can wear them again! Unfortunately that only consists of about one month out of year! So Sad too! =)
Harper is so cute with her little smilin' face!

Mrs. Jenk said...

I swear only flat chested women can pull off the big scarf like that. I feel like it is blocking my face when I try it. I totally feel like a dork myself!

Leigh Ann said...

hey, I just have to share this funny about my oldest. When Bennett was like four, I came home after a hair cut and the hairdresser flay ironed it! Which you know me, is a sharp contrast that the normal me. When I walked in, Bennett looked at me and frowned and said oh, mommy you need to twist your hair up, I don't like it! He's my creature of habit, so no wonder any change set him spinning. We laugh at twisting it up was his curly definition at four! Great scarf

Nicole said...

Cute!

Jodi said...

Love the scarf - you can def. pull it off, and Harper is just tooooo cute!

Speaking of Harper's cuteness, I've had a few questions for you. First, where do you get her awesomely adorable clothes? She's got such style! Secondly, where do you get the clips for her hair, and HOW do you get them to stay in?!? Thirdly, where do you get all of her awesome headbands? And lastly, please share how you edit your photos to make them look the way they do (the ones with the pink undertones).

THanks!!!

Mama Amy said...

Some day you may not want your little girl's comments about your appearance ... today my 6 year old daughter said "Mommy, don't sit next to me, you smell like spit up", LOL! (just fyi, I DO have a newborn, thus the spit-uppy smell!) :) Sometimes the comments are nice though!!

CinderellaMommy said...

Hi, Kelly!
I read often, but comment infrequently. I LOVE reading your blog and have been praying for Harper since she was a wee one! My daughter, who is just a bit older than Harper, has that same cute Carter's outfit with the apple pockets - I'm glad to finally be dressing her in some fall clothing!

Your bank post came at the perfect time for our family - we are just beginning to read and follow Dave Ramsey's plan of debt reduction and "financial peace." Your post reaffirmed what we need to do and how to do it. I'm sure that your post is also going to positively help lots of others! Job well done!

Cinderella Mommy

P.S. - Cute scarf & shoe combo! ;)

Southern Woman said...

Ya'll. Are. The. Cutest. Period. :-)

Kris said...

Kelly - I love Harper's hair and how much she has changed since it really started coming in. She is beautiful.

You and your scarf? You look great in everything - why would you imagine this would be any different? Rock it like you own it. lol

Julia said...

Those felt bows are so cute! My one of my BF's sells those on ETSY also, soooo cute!!!

So I didn't get to say over the weekend, ROLL TIDE :)

Hope Ark has a win this weekend!!!

Mel said...

Kelly, you could wear a potato sack and look amazing. I still remember my first impression of you when you stepped out in the Home Office lobby 6 years ago this month! I thought you were beautiful and then you opened your mouth and became even more precious. No wonder Harper has the look of adoration in her eyes when she looks at you. That love is what gets me every time. I am so thrilled beyond words for you, girl. Knowing you in the last six years I know you deserve every ounce of happiness in your life right now and the love of that precious baby just brings tears to my eyes.

Love,
Mel

autumn23 said...

Love the video. You should post more. Now, I want a scarf from Walmart. How did you tie yours? I feel so dumb because I can't figure out how to tie the darn things.

Loved Harper laughing in the video. So sweet. Made my Monday!

~aj~ said...

That may have just been a little video about your $5 scarf, but it had me smiling ear to ear, Kelly!

You and Harper should totally make video blogging a regular thing around here. Both of you are just TOO cute!!!!

Alaina @ Three Ladies and a Dad said...

I loved your vlog!! And your accent...it is just great!

KK said...

You both look great and yes I think Miss Harper LOVES the scarf!
Thanks for sharing. Blessings this evening and always,

It looks great!

JESSICA said...

You look great! I admire how you always have your hair and make-up done. Classy gal! :)
They sell those flowers at Sam Moon here in my area. I saw them today for very cheap. I am excited to make a few new headbands for my little lady.

Scott, Ashley & Emma Paige said...

Kelly, the scarf looks great! Just wanted to let you know I have been wanting a pair of cowboy boots soooo bad, but I was afraid it would be "teeny bopper-ish" (I'm 28) but you have inspired me to just go for it! I love fall fashion!

Anita Grace said...

Thanks for sharing your video post... you seriously are SO cute & gorgeous! You should do more video posts like that in the future, they're fun to watch... & Harper is so smiley!

Cathy said...

You should do more video post. Even if it's just to see Harper smile. She is the cutest baby ever! Love the scarf by the way.

ScrappinAway said...

Love the video! The scarf looks great!

Shawna&Co. said...

You look tooo cute! I tried a scarf last year and felt like a idiot too. People liked it though. I think it's a curve to feel comfortable.
Harper is just toooo darn cute. I wouldn't get anything done at all if I had her!

BOWquet said...

ok, you are just too cute! YOu remind me of a southern belle! :)

ty said...

precious precious precious! the scarf is too cute!

April said...

I have a little girl that will be 5 months old this week and I recently had a shopping field day at Carters. I started laughing looking at your blog because about the past 5 outfits Harper is wearing I bought for Adelyn. I am glad to see how cute they look on! :)

She is really adorable!

Donna said...

Kelly, the scarf looks great. Brings some color close to your face. Very pretty. Of course your 100 watt smile outshines everything. Harper loves the video. Do more!! She is such a doll.
Keeping you in my heart in Ga.
Donna

Ashley Gibson said...

Very Cute!!! And when they start talking its the best- it really is. I always say Hadley, my 2yr old daughter is my personal cheer leader all day. She says things like, "your so pretty momma" or when I'm doing something mundane like folding clothes its, "good job momma you did it" Its the sweetest!!!

Whit and Bradley said...

What program did you use to edit Harper's photo? It is totally presh!

Paige said...

The scarf looks great!! You can definitely pull it off!

Melanieshea said...

You look awesome!!!! Girl, wear them!!! I think you can pull anything off! :o)

Love the video!

Becky said...

You two are adorable. The scarf looks GREAT......I'm a scarf wearin' fool myself!!!

Natalie said...

Kelly, I love the scarf ... way too cute! And I love the video too!

I am hosting a giveaway this week, be sure to head on over to check it out! http://teamimhoff.blogspot.com

etta said...

You know, I love that you love Wal-Mart and aren't scared to admit it. So many people are ashamed to say they shop at Wal-Mart. I have a new house, so I'm fine saving money by shopping there.

Rachel said...

Hey Kelly,

I always used to think that I looked silly in scarfs too. Try folding it in half and then pushing the loose ends through the loop at the fold. Or try wrapping it around your neck so the loose ends hang at the front. I find that I feel a lot better wearing scarfs like that :)

Jessica said...

Crack me up! Cute scarf, cute video and of course, way cute Harper.

Ashley said...

Just had to share that tonight we are enjoying our second round of your chicken, potatoe, and green bean recipe. I altered it a bit and put fresh string beans with it instead, and boy is it yummy! Thanks so much for the wonderful recipe. I prep it in the morning before work (I start in the afternoon, since I work with high school sports), and it's great because my husband and I get home around 8pm, and we just stick it in the oven. No more 10pm dinners, thanks to you! Keep 'em coming!

Oh, and love the scarf!

W/aloha, Ash

Lianna Knight said...

You are just adorable!! That video put a huge smile on my face this morning :)

you do look fabulous, and i think the whole scarf this is working for you. i swear you could rock a burlap bag dress!!
i had to laugh at wishing harper could tell you what she think about what you are wearing. bookmark this post, girl, because there will come a day when she is brutally honest about you and what you're wearing in public and how you are ruining her life!! ha! (but i'm sure that harper would never think such things or even consider dissing her momma. . . )
i love your stories and even silly posts about scarf wearing and going to walmart and sams. . . i'm still struggling with my empty-nestness (and yes, i'm crying) and so i'm eating up your blog like it's mommy crack.
thanks so much for entertaining me!

Kelly, I just bought my first scarf at Old Navy for $10. I LOVE it. I decided to give the whole scarf thing a try. I see so many wearing them, they are definitely the "in" accessory. Yours looks great, especially with the purple shoes.

Jessica said...

You look great! Love the video and your accent BTW! :)

Lindsey @ Harpserville Home said...

You're so cute! And I loved Harper's little ending to that video! That was a cute little noise!! :)

As far as her sleep is going... look at how many hours total she is getting in a day. She might be telling you that she is ready for only an afternoon nap or a shorter nap in the morning. My son Kaleb did something very similar to me and when I cut out the morning nap (I am assuming she is taking two naps, one in the morning and one in the afternoon) he started sleeping MUCH better at night. And his afternoon nap was even a bit longer and better quality. He did this to me at 7 months.

Also note that when he would go through a growth spurt he would add the nap back in. Just look at the total amount of sleep she is getting and what time she goes down at night and that might explain the early rising.

The headband is so cute, and I love the scarf! I need to definitely get one for the fall. Maybe it would take the attention away from my growing belly!

sjm4him said...

Especially love the first pic of Harper--she is getting so big. I can't see videos here at work, but will check it out tonight. :) Hope Miss Harper learns how to sleep...funny that in 13 years (or less), you won't be able to WAKE HER UP! :)

Andrea said...

You both are just adorable!! Love the scarf and shoes!!

Our Curly Girls said...

That smile from Harper was too sweet! You gals are too precious! :o)

I love sweet Harper's squeal at the end of the video! Don't you just love her like CRAZY, Kelly?! I know you do. She's so cute! How sweet of your neighbor to cut you a rose...that is so incredibly sweet and thoughtful!

Lauren Kelly said...

Kelly, you are too stinkin precious (And Harper too). Loved the video :)

Jenn Prather said...

I just love the way Harper is beaming when she is with you! Thats an AWESOME feeling as a mom, and I love to see her like that!! She is such a happy baby!!

Ok, so I want to see how you have the scarf TIED???? I have tried to wear them too and it just doesnt look like that!!!

Dreams2009 said...

I love wearing scarfs ;). You look great in it. Harper is such a sweet heart! I can't get enough of your blog!! :)

Hi Kelly, First off LOVE your blog!! I have been reading it for a little less than a year and its so amazing. I am sure you hear it constantly but your amazing and so is your testimony as a Christian women! I am only 18 and new to this whole blogging thing but love it so far. Your blog is one that has inspired me to blog and share my story. I have never been the typical college girl and into the typical things, I have always felt more mature and what not. SO when I found blogs like yours, and Angies I was so happy to see there are amazing Christian women out there willing to share their lives and testimonies with younger Christian women like myself. I am sure you never guessed last year some random teen was following your blog lol, and while I have not gone through a lot of the things you have I really appreaciate your story and your blog. Your a great example to young women like me, and I hope to one day be the same :o). My reason for blogging was not only to share my opinions and for fun of course :o) but also to share my story of weight loss and hope to inspire other teens girls like myself. In the last nine monnths I have lost 147lbs and I hope to be able to one day use my testimony of how I have done it and how God impowered me to do with other teens and kids who struggle. Anyways thanks again for your blog :o), hope mine might have 1/3 of the impact yours has one day!

p.s. Love you scarf and Wal-Mart's 5 dollar scarves, reading your blog has made me love Wal-mart even more lol :D!

Oh you are simply adorable and I love your scarf:)

Hi Kelly,
May I suggest that you give Harper a bedtime snack to help her sleep better? Hunger may be the reason she is waking up. Try something with protein like a bit of cheese, yogurt( full fat), cereal or meat. It's just an idea...

Keris said...

The scarf is very cute! I don't think it's nearly as cute as Harper, though! Wal-Mart is our second home, too! My sister cracks up because she always seems to call when I am there! hehe :)

jenn said...

harper and paxton both want to start there days at the same time..i sure hope they bot start sleeping at least until 6:30..ha/ha

you look great

Amanda said...

Sorry Harper isn't much of a sleeper. I know how that feels. My oldest is 10, and if she ever sleeps through the night, I'll let you know! HA! Seriously, she only needs about 4-6 hours a night. You'll get used to it eventually.

Sue said...

I have a 15 yr old daughter....trust me...you can wait to hear her comments.

Finewineanddiapers said...

Love your bank blog. I made an excel spreadsheet with all of my family's debt. Each month I noted what I wanted the balance to be, decreasing it each month. Being competitive by nature, I wanted to beat the goal I set for myself and our family. We have paid off cars, student loans and have paid down our mortgage as well this way. There was just something about seeing it and realizing that it could be done.

Allison said...

You look great, and Harper's smiles are PRECIOUS!

Queen Mama said...

You look fab as always. Harper is too cute.. I love her laugh.

Love those shoes and the scarf.

Trac~ said...

SOO CUTE! You look great as always and Harper is adorable and too funny! HA! :o)

Karen L. said...

i just had to comment on your talent to 1. hold a baby 2. use a video camera ON YOURSELF and 3. stand on one foot

that was cracking me up but you are definitely multi-taskful!!

you are a great mom!

Katie said...

I think you're rockin the scarf~looks great!! :) It cracks me up how Harper keeps looking at your and smiling...too too cute!

Kelly said...

Kelly, you look awesome in the scarf! Hope the video I sent you over helped some..a lot of it is just confidence as it can feel strange at first wearing accessories you aren't used to! I love accessories and scarves are a blast, they can liven up lots of dresses and tops (and keep your neck warm too!) Harper is so adorable!

How "Sweet" it is... said...

I love the scarf, shoes, and Harper's smile!

Angel said...

you look great and that child is getting a head full of hair!

Jocelyn said...

You look great... and your video made me smile!

These are the days... said...

Oh yes! One day you will wish she would keep her comments to herself. LOL!
I always tell my little girl, "You are growing so big!" Well, when she was around 3 years old, she was following me up the stairs. In her little sweet voice she said, "Mommy, your bottom is growing so big!"
Yep, out of the mouth's of babes!

Sunny said...

Yesterday when you wrote that you couldn't wear scarves, I thought, "wha?? huh???" 'cause you are waaaaaay to cute to not pull off a scarf. I just knew it and when I saw you today on your video, yup, it's confirmed. You're absolutely precious. Harper gets it honest.

Shawn Seay said...

Love the video. You look fab in the purple wal-mart scarf!
;-)

cupcake said...

The video was great! I love the scarf and the shoes too!
Harper is adorable and seems like a fun baby!

Natalie said...

That video was too cute! You look awesome in the scarf, it is super cute!

Mandi said...

You are too cute! Love the scarf, I don't like them on me, and think I look like a dork too haha!

Jennifer said...

I think it looks cute!

SayraH said...

See? You CAN pull it off. You look great, and Harper is always beautiful :)

((hugs & blessings))

Beth said...

A few things...

first of all, I love the scarf! Maybe I will rethink my thought on wearing a scarf...you might just be my "secret weapon!"

Secondly...I admire the fact that you are not scared beside yourself to let Harper play with that roll of toilet paper. (Although, to be fair, I have only had trouble with toilet paper bandits with my boy, so go figure...)

The two of you are absolutely adorable in your fall clothes! It's always a bright spot in my day to stop by your korner!

christy said...

You are just too cute! Thanks for sharing the video. Harper looks like one happy girl. :)
I also just bought my first "fashon scarf" from Nordstrom Rack ($6) and it has been hanging ever since. I just feel like a big dork when I wear it... but everyone else looks cute in them! Go figure.

Gracie said...

I just love reading your blog!!!! Harper is SOOOO adorable!!!!!! :) That scarf looks great on you and you don't look like a dork I think it looks great!

Melody said...

Kelly, that video was too cute! The scarf looks great on you and Harper is absolutely adorable!!

Kimberly said...

I have to admit I've been wanting to join the scarf trend lately too so I am encouraged by you to do so. However, I must say I was pretty destracted during the video by Harper! She was totally cheesing for the video and stealing my heart! Love her! I want to make a request for more videos!!
