This and Thats

lots of randomness that's going on in my brain today :-) *Carson and I went to Carrabbas for our Anniversary dinner on Monday night. Its Thursday now and I am still thinking about the lobster macaroni and cheese I had. It was seriously the best meal I've ever had! *I'm sad that Lacey got kicked off American Idol last night. She isn't the best singer but I liked her and her funky clothes and hair. oh well. * Weston is CRAWLING!! He's not very fast yet but he's getting there. Its so hilarious to watch. He usually takes a few crawls and then does the army man since he's gotten so good at it! HA! *I'm in the mood to get the stuff to start on the crafts for Weston's 1st birthday party. I know its like 2 months away but I have lots of ideas and I want to get a head start on them! Its gonna be so fun! *We are leaving on the 27th (10 days) to go to San Diego. I'm have so many mixed emotions about this trip. I'm excited because I love to go places with Carson, we have so much fun together and San Diego is so awesome, beautiful, warm, fun etc. We will get to go to an Elevate church service while we're there. I am so proud of how well their ministry is doing and it will be awesome to finally get see it all in action! I have a plan of driving to Orange County/Coto and stalking around where the Real Housewives of Orange County hang out (I have sick love for them even though the show is such trashy drama!) But after church and a banquet on Sunday we will be leaving and helping Chris and Kelly move home from S.D. back to Georgia. This is such a bitter-sweet time for them because even though a part of them will be happy to come back, they have poured their lives out for Elevate and made so many life long friends that will miss so much! Please pray for them because I know this is hard. SOOOO we will be driving across country which will be a fun adventure, but I will be doing this WITHOUT WESTON :-(((((( He has only spent the night away from me one time so I'm having serious anxiety about leaving him! I know he will be just fine with his Mimi and Uncle Steven but its ME that's having the hard time! I'm gonna make mom send me a picture or video of him like every 5 minutes!! And because of the trip I am in the process of weaning from the pump too which makes me sad -but also makes me happy I wont have to carry that blasted thing around anymore! We have a love/hate relationship haha!! Anyways I guess that's it. Its nice outside today so hopefully we can go walk at the park when I get off work. Hope you're having a great Thursday!

March 15th 2008

Its funny to think about what our day was like 2 years ago. It was one of the worst weather days Atlanta has seen in a looooong time!! This is what the sky looked like at about 3..... There was rain, tornadoes, hail, you name it....and this was OUR WEDDING DAY!!!!! It all ended up clearing up and everything turned out fine. I felt so bad when people would show me the hail damage their cars got while they were driving to the church! Praise the Lord everybody made it just fine, and surprisingly I was as cool as a cucumber! Wow, What a memory it was! I still often think about how special the day was in so many ways, how lots of our family traveled so far to come and support us, and also how lots of our family worked so hard to make everything turn out so beautiful! LOVE YOU ALL and I still appreciate it so much! You can check out my facebook or go here to see a few wedding pictures, and you can go here to see the video Blake made to play at our ceremony. It's so special! I am so thankful to have such a sweet husband who always keeps me laughing and is always so patient with my sometimes crazy self! Being married has been SO much fun so far and I look forward to every year to come! We are going to dinner tonight to celebrate. I'm so excited!!HAPPY 2 YEARS CARSON!!!!!!! LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!

Loooong Update!!

We have had lots and lots of fun things going on these past few weeks. Weston is doing good and still just as sweet as ever. He turned nine months old on the 27th. I cant believe we have a nine month old! I feel like we just came home with him! When we went to the doctor for his nine month checkup the doctor said both of his ears were infected again so that makes #4. They want to keep an eye on it and if he keeps having problems we will go to the specialist to talk about putting tubes in. It makes us sad to see him sick so much. I know this is a minor thing that lots of babies deal with, but I am still hoping he gets better so he doesn't have to go through that. So, come on Spring!! But we are still very thankful for a mostly healthy baby. He is so close to crawling. He is up on all fours rocking and also does this really hilarious "army man crawl". Its so cute and its been so fun to watch him learn all theses different ways to get around. And as of right now he still doesn't have ANY teeth! none, zero, zip! I know he wants to eat more food than he can right now, but he gets choked too easy if he cant gum it enough! So Puffs are still his favorite snack for now. And he's starting to grow more hair too, enough that I can actually brush. ha! Its all different lengths and wispy but at least he's getting some! So funny! Our bald toothless baby! We celebrated Myles 1st Birthday on the February the 11Th and went to his adorable birthday party that Saturday, and then Annabelle's 1st Birthday last week. Collin and Erin had us over for a birthday dinner on Tuesday and then her party was on Saturday. It was all so much fun and the parties were all so cute! It made me even more excited for Weston's first birthday...but I'm in no hurry for it to get here. We're just trying to savor every moment of him still being a baby! Last Sunday we had baby dedications at church. It was so special in so many ways. Weston got to be dedicated with his cousin and 2 other babies in our small group. It was such a sweet time and there were so many people there to show their love and support for all the babies. So much of our family came and I was so thankful to see EACH of their faces there. And so was Weston! We don't have any big plans for the weekend but lots of little plans: *I've GOT to do some cleaning that's way overdue! UGH!! *Carters in having another big 50% off sale and I got a 20% off coupon, so we're gonna try to get Weston some spring/summer clothes. Plus they have another $10 diaper bag offer and ours has about had it so I would like to get that too. *We're gonna try to go the boys' baseball games Saturday if it's warm enough. Last week Cole said "I hope Weston can come to my first game." SO SWEET!! *I have to go to Hobby Lobby to get all the supplies to make Aurora and Maddie's birthday banners and start working on them. I've been a banner making fool since Kelly showed me how. They are so much fun to make and a special thing to give to people for their parties. FUN!! *Hopefully at some point sneak in and see anther couple in our small group that just had their baby last night, Liviana Ruth Parker :-) awwww! * Then we have our normal Sunday morning church and Sunday night small group too! Lots of fun things but most of all Im looking forward to doing it ALL with Carson and Weston. and spending time with other people we love. I LOVE THE WEEKEND!!! Ok, and P.S. I know I am waaaaaaay overdue for an update. I don't know why, but I feel like I cant blog if I don't have pictures to go with a post, but that's LAME-O and and I need to just write anyways or I will end up with a looooong blog like this! Sorry!! Hope everyone has a great weekend with lots of fun and love!!
