Catch Your Self~ {in slobbery kisses & a garage sale sweater}

I've been getting a lot of sweet "just because" kisses & hugs lately.... daddy too.
They really are just the best kind of X's & O's.
BIG NEWS: A 1st
Last night Jax EVEN said, "I love YOU, MOMEEEEE !!!
(without me asking begging him to)
He did it about 20 times, & every time he said "YOU...." he's pointed at me with dramatic excitement!!
Flippn cutest thing EVER.
 Each time my heart spilled over w/ happy!
THEN there was today...
Instead of sweet Jaxy kisses... 
He decided that licking my nose was just SO much funnier...
I have to agree.
but dude... yah... even though you're my precious little boy..
It's still kinda GROSS man!

On a fun non-gross note: GUESS what find this mama scored at a neighborhood garage sale?
 (LOVE me some good garage sales) 
I scored an adorable grey Ralph Lauren CASHMERE sweater for...
.25 cents. Yah... buddy!
It's sometime the silly little things that make me a girl happy!
Good thing we've had some depressing rainy weather here in the pacific northwest,
but now that I got to wear my sweater... bring on the sunshine!

We did not spend very long in the licking stage. Thank goodness since it really is kinda gross, no matter how much you love them.

I'm having a Memorial Day Link Up this weekend. I would love to have you!

Oh. My. Gosh. You are THE cutest thing! I love your crinkled nose in the first pic. Wish I could get a kiss like that! Okay, that was a liitle over the top creepy but you are seriously gorgeous. Have a great weekend beautiful.

So pretty! Don't you just love, "I love yous" from your little. I know I do- even though she kisses her fisher price little people and tells them she loves them too.

Shut UP! 25 cents for cashmere???? Girl that is a score!! Good job! And...love the photo of sweet Jaxy and you. And the story too. Precious!! Maren likes to say, "Mommy you are my best friend" and it is just heart melting - even (especially?) when I'm upset. Ah, they know just what to say, don't they? haha!
