That one time you basically save a turtle's life..

Count on Me by Bruno Mars on Grooveshark

haha no but seriously a couple of days ago we were just driving home
(on a pretty busy main road) and I passed this turtle on the side of the road.
I had literally seen this little guy go from trying to crawl out in front of a vehicle going 50 mph
to immediately ducking into his shell as a car drove past him..
I couldn't believe what I just saw so of course I had to turn around
and see if I could help this little guy out!
It looks like he had wandered into the road and was trying to get to the other side.. but the problem was that there was a curb and no physical way that little guy could have climbed up without having to go through five lanes of traffic on a busy road...  he would have been turtle soup for sure!

So I flipped a u'ey and put on my hazards,  and set him in my trunk and headed home where I could figure out what to do with him. Lexi was beyond excited about a pet turtle coming home with us.. so we kept him in one of lexi's plastic pools in our garage with grass and water for a couple of days.. but tonight we decided it was time. so Tyson took Lexi and "ninja turtle" to our neighborhood pond tonight and set him free! She wasn't too happy with our decision to let him go though!

so on that note...

Netflix Pick of the month for the little ones:

A Turtle's Tale

All time favorite kids movie, love the story line, love the music,
it's just one of my favorites that she watches!

My current Netflix Fave:

Ok, I'm just going to give you one this month..
because it's that important that you start getting hooked!!
two words.
Kimmy. Shmidt.
you guys, you have to start watching Unbreakable!
it's a Netflix comedy series about a woman who is rescued
from a doomsday cult and starts life over again in New York City.
It's well worth watching in my opinion..
I'm only to episode 6 so you should catch up so we can chat about it!


  1. This is the time of year I see soooo many turtles on the road. I think they are starting to lay all their eggs! My husband laughs because I always pull over. And YES to Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. I binge watched over the weekend. I love it. It's hysterical! I can't wait for more episodes

    1. haha it's so hard not to feel sorry for the little guys! so glad im not the only one who is hooked to unbreakable!! :)

  2. Your daughters are simply beautiful. I love reading your blog. I have a 2 1/2 year old and I want to get that pretty peach dress. What color shoes did your daughter wear with it?
    My email is thank you.

    1. looks like the e-mail you left was not correct? I got a reply failure message..
      so hopefully you check back here?!

      She wore gold sandals we had.. I've attached some links to some other shoes I think would be super cute with the dress though!

      Hope this helps! :)

  3. You are awesome! I love that you went back and put the turtle in your trunk! I would have screamed trying to pick it up, haha!

  4. Yes...thank you very much for relying back. I'll have to see why my email didn't work.
