Dear Husband Love song #3

Photo by Kristen Booth Photography






alone

I'm home

I'm home in my head

and now that unknown

has grown, so I want this instead
longer

could you stay a little longer

longer

longer
I forgot 'bout this room, and the view, way above the things I fear it towers

and it's you, feelin' you again, makes me, open up just like a flower
longer

could you stay a little longer

longer

longer
'cuz I want to give you more for

nothing in return

oh I did wait for you darlin', did ache for your darlin' and now you're here, I want you dear to stay
oooooooooh

ohh ohh ohh ohh ohh
longer

could you stay a little longer

longer

longer

and then... longer

longer

Dear Husband #2

Photo by Kristen Booth Photography


I don't want to talk right now
I just want your arms wrapped around
Me in this moment
Before it runs out

Oh don't say that it's over
Oh no say it ain't so
Let's let the stars watch
Let them stare
Let the wind eavesdrop
I don't care
For all that we've got, don't let go
Just hold me

I can't pull you closer than this
It's just you and the moon on my skin
Oh who says it ever has to end
Oh don't say that it's over
Oh no say it ain't so

Let's let the stars watch
Let them stare
Let the wind eavesdrop
I don't care
For all that we've got, don't let go
Just hold me

Let's let the stars watch
Let them stare
Let the wind eavesdrop
I don't care
For all that we've got, don't let go

Just hold me
Just hold me
Just hold me
Just hold me
Just hold me

Fashion Friday {Aloha!}

Well we've been in Hawaii for two months now and I still don't feel settled in. I haven't shared many pictures of our new house or much of anything besides the occasional beach picture on instagram @ashley.reed 
It's been really hard to get used to our new schedule and routine with school starting so early and my lack of sleep. I barely get my makeup on anymore. So I managed to get it together for Fashion Friday and I'm hoping to get more soon. 







Everything is pretty much casual here so I figured this was fitting for my first one in Hawaii!

Aloha!!

Dear Husband

Photo by Jenny Courtney Photography


Next week is my 9 year wedding anniversary. I always try to do something special. I'm kind of a hopeless romantic that way. My favorite thing to do is to find songs that remind me of my husband. So I'm going to be blogging love songs every day for my man until our anniversary. Because every year together is a big deal. Plus, I love sharing awesome songs with people too!

Conversations with a six year old






"When I go to the beach I'm going to go bananas! "


"When I'm eleven I'm going to be as tall as my mom."

{Jaguar Commercial}
"Yeah I'm getting that car!"

{Driving in car}
Riley: It smells like farts!
Daddy: It's tires....


Riley: You know who has the biggest feet?
Mommy: Who?
Riley: God!

{Driving in car}
Mommy to Daddy: You better stop while you are ahead you keep digging yourself into a hole.
Riley: What are you guys talking about?
Daddy: Mommy's being sassy and I'm being sassy back and she doesn't like it. 
Riley: Maybe you should just stop talking and just enjoy the ride. 


{A place for mom commercial}

Riley: I need that!
Mommy: ..... {turns to her} For what?!
Riley:....... For you.

{Cleaning up room}
Mommy: Riley what's this? {beads in a cup}
Riley: It's from your bracelet.
Mommy: So you broke it and hid it from me?
Riley:.......I was pretending it was soup!

{Playing dress up} 
Riley: Mommy you look beautiful with those earrings!
Mommy: Thank you.
Riley: You should take your hair down because you're too beautiful I can't look!



Riley: Why do you like Ariel so much?
Mommy: I think it's because it was my first favorite movie...The Little Mermaid.
I think it came out when I was born.
Riley: That's really old!.....Like really, really, really, really, old, old, old, old!

Family Pictures

While we were on vacation cross the country we planned to do some family photos along the way. We usually get them done in California. This time we opted for a different feel and location so decided to do it in Nashville. P.S we LOVED Nashville!! Here are a few of my favorites shot by my awesome friend Kathleen Clipper taken at the Shelby street Bridge

Mommy Mondays {hush little baby}

Hey guys I know it's been awhile!
We have had a long vacation and move to hawaii!! But we are finally here and moved into our new house. It's been a slow process but we are finally getting everything in it's new place and it's starting to feel homey. I will be blogging a ton of new stuff soon. Vacation, family pictures and of course hawaii! So please check back!






So my little monkey is turning 7 months this week! Already !! I know it's not fair how fast it's going.
A huge milestone for us is making it this far exclusively breastfeeding. Longer than I did with Riley. He is now a 14lb chunky little man. It took us a bit to get into our groove. It ended up being a lot easier than I thought it would be. But now we face the challenge of sleep. This kid still doesn't sleep through the night. He still sleeps right next to me in the pac n play. Now that we are in Hawaii I plan on setting up his room finally. I never had this issue with little miss. She was in her own room by this time. Some people have suggested his tummy isn't full enough. I tried baby food and nursing him and he still doesn't really sleep. The Dr said that it's more for comfort that he is waking up throughout the night. Have there been any things you may have tried that worked?
