Kicks, a multiple meaning word!

The word kicks can be used in many different ways. In this case it would be used as a noun, as in the name of the building where my hubby has started his indoor soccer league!
My hubby has spent his whole life playing soccer. He has played with his dad as his coach when he was little, played on Select Teams, played for his high school team, and then went on to college to play until he was injured and had to stop.When he and I lived in College Station he joined a men's league. It was really fun to sit on the sidelines and watch him play! Now in Katy he has found another league and I am right back on the sidelines watching.....Which brings me to a second meaning of the word kicks....

It can be used as a verb, as in the kicks this little man growing inside me is doing. And he definitely takes after his Daddy as he plays soccer with my belly! :)

Table centerpiece!

A few weeks ago I mentioned that I was in search of a centerpiece for my dining room table. I got in the car, drove to hobby lobby, and looked and searched for over an hour! Then got back in my car, empty handed and defeated, and headed back home! I couldn't believe that I hadn't found anything! I have to say that I know I have a hard time making up my mind and I really should have known better than to go looking without a plan or even an idea of what I liked!

I am now happy to say that I am no longer defeated and I found a centerpiece!! I came home from that terrible shopping trip and searched the internet. The more I looked that more I found myself thinking back to the centerpieces that were made for my wedding. I absolutely loved my centerpieces!

I think it looks so southern! I love it!

This was my inspiration! So, I got back in my car, drove back to hobby lobby, felt totally confident, and picked up all the stuff I would need!
I grabbed a hurricane vase and a candle, both 1/2 off!
A bundle of blue hydrangeas to match my dining room, 1/2 off!
A foam wreath, not 1/2 off, but that's OK! :)

And after grabbing some wire cutters and going to town, this is what I came up with!
I am pretty proud of myself and really like the way it turned out!

It feels like a little piece of our wedding to remind us of that special day! 
Thanks for stopping by :)
