The Headband Challenge and Link Party

Get caught up on the challenge here.

What I Learned From the Headband Challenge:

1. Apparently my forehead is even larger than I already knew it was. And headbands can either hide or accentuate its massive surface area. I prefer to hide it.

2. I like headbands more than I knew.

3. They can be worn with pony tails. And when a busy week calls for limited hair washing, this style is the method of choice. Before this week, I had never worn a headband this way.

4. Strangers will compliment you. And who doesn't love a compliment from a stranger.

5. Headbands don't need to be matchy matchy with your outfit. 

6. Wearing a headband to the pool can take the attention off your swimsuit--two thumbs up.

7. Don't wear all your headbands at once.

8. Sometimes something as simple as stepping out of your comfort zone to wear a headband, can be just the nudge you need to build up the courage to be YOU.

9. I need more headbands.

What did you learn from the headband challenge?

Now, time to link up.

Here's how:
On your blog, write a post and include all the pictures of you wearing your headbands, be sure to include a link back to LMM so others can join the party.  Publish the post.  Then copy the url {web address} for your specific headband post and head over here.  Scroll to the end of this post and then click "add your link".  Follow the instructions given on the next screen and paste your link in the appropriate box. After you paste your link, complete the instructions provided. Come up with a clever title that will make people want to click on your thumbnail.  Once you finish, a thumbnail of your post will show up here.  And then you're all linked up! That's it. Easy peasy.  
 Tell your friends to head over and "like" your thumbnail.  Thumbnails with more "likes" will most likely get featured. 

CONGRATS to Comment #473, Katey
you won the lovely Tiffany's Ring from Miss Mommy!

I'm Moving!

I know, I know.
I've been saying it's gonna happen for a while now, and then it didn't.
Well, this time I mean it.
LMM is moving to Word Press.
Which means, things are gonna be a bit crazy
around these parts for the next few days.
Hence, photo of me being "crazy".
So hang in there while we work out the bugs
and unveil the new look
created by Shannon of Eight Crazy Designs.

dun, dun, dun.

Speaking of Eight Crazy Designs, Shannon needs some help from y'all. She is planning her high school reunion and wants to do something more than the typical hotel reception.  Any creative thoughts? Any links? Anything?

Also, if you have LMM bookmarked as,
be sure to switch it to

The List

Every Sunday night,
before I go to bed,
I sit down and I make a list
of all the things I hope to accomplish in the upcoming week.

This list literally has over a hundred "to-do's".
And no, I don't get to all of them.
Not even close.

Even the simplest things make the list.
Things like wash my hair, buy toothpaste,
bring sippy cups in from the car.

And then I have my "loftier" goals listed.
Things like start that diet, jog at least 3 times,
no hair pulling, organize my closet.

You see, I'm the kinda girl who likes to put it all down on paper,
and then I get this sort of sick satisfaction from taking a pen
and crossing off the items I have completed.
It's like a drug.

Hello, I am Ashley
and I am addicted to lists.

What's on your list this week? top three.

Psst. Did you notice my new heart stack rings care of Olive Bungalow?
They're my new favorite. Especially the B&A ring.
Cheesy and romantic--just how I like it.

Cool Story and a Tiffany's Ring Giveaway

Cool story.
Since I started my blog a year and a half ago,
I have had a handful of readers who have been around since the early days.
Frequent and heartfelt commenters,
who manage to always brighten my day.

Every day I recognize the names on the comments
that come in on my phone from each of these gal's,
and I smile,
looking forward to what words of wisdom
or funny story they may have to share.

Whether they know it or not,
these girls have become a part of my little blog family.
They have given me comfort when I've made myself vulnerable,
made me laugh when I needed it most,
given me encouragement,
inspired me to do what I love,
and they remind me daily
why being true to yourself matters most.

One girl in particular,
Nicole of Miss Mommy,
has quickly become one of my favorites.

And just the other day,
she emailed me with an opportunity for y'all
that made me squeal with excitement.

You know that Tiffany's heart ring I wear ALL.THE.TIME...
the ring seen in nearly every picture I take {see 1st photo in this post}...
the ring that Tiffany's discontinued...
Well I found it online at another retailer a while back,
and Nicole bought it.
Not sure if its legit,
but it sure is stinkin cute and it looks just like mine.

Well Nicole, in all her awesomeness, got an extra ring,
and today she wants to give it away to one of YOU!
Because she's just super rad like that.

Exciting stuff!
Seriously, this ring is the apple of my eye.

This is Nicole.

Say, thanks Nicole for being as fabulous as can be.

Fleeting Moments

Nap time.

It's fleeting around these parts.
Every day it becomes a bit less consistent,
and I realize it's only a matter of time before it stops all together.

Like clock work, half way through his nap,
Baby W wakes up crying and looking around the room for his Momma.
He spots me, whines until I curl up next to him,
and then closes his eyes, usually puts his arm or leg over me
and drifts back to sleep. 

He always makes sure some part of our bodies are touching
that way I can't sneak away without him noticing.
And yesterday, he wanted to be REALLY sure
I didn't escape our mid-nap cuddle session.

So he threw his entire body on me
and fell fast asleep.

 You're not going anywhere Momma.

I love this boy and his sweaty bed head.
