I had this idea from my friend Nicoles blog to post a picture of me with out makeup and with out using one of the wonderful photo editing apps I have on my phone. I saw the original idea came from this blog. Its so easy to fix a photo and it comes in handy when your an overly exhausted stay at home mom with bags under your eyes. Judah hasn't been napping the past two days and I haven't been sleeping at night which makes a disastrous combination of both mother and child not functioning on enough sleep. I took this photo of myself today after Judah's second nap attempt. I was watching and laughing at him as he was singing out the window to the rain while he was trying to eat his toy bugs. I don't have any makeup on and the photo is not edited in any apps. I feel absolutely exposed posting a picture like this.

Sticking his toy bugs in his mouth. 

Sucking on a lizard while he plays with his dinosaurs, elmo, doggies and bugs by the window. 

I took a few pictures of our dining room and family room so you can see how nice it looks with the new color we painted the walls with last month. 

I especially love our family room. The lamps don't match because I am searching for just the right ones at some thrift stores. 

I have another large chair in the corner of my living room where I placed my granny square blanket. Judah loves for us to read to him in this spot. 

On the walls I have some thrifted floral artwork. Also my very sweet friend Emily Bilbrey custom made this fox portrait of Judah. I absolutely love it and am planning on getting the whole family done. I  recently purchased the scripture artwork from the Etsy shop Naptime Diaries.  Song of Solomon 2:4 is one of my favorite verses and I wanted to place the artwork somewhere in the house where I would daily be reminded that the Lords banner over me is love.
