Thursday Thirteen


Thirteen Things that I LOVE

Since our family is traveling this week, looking to see where we're going to live and what we're going to do and life seems to be just one big unknown, I thought I'd list the things I love about where we are, where we've been and what's going on.
(Sorry this is so late - computer time is a premium around here!)

1. I love the cooler weather here in Georgia
2. I love the cooler weather there in Alabama
3. I love the cooler weather there in Tennessee
4. I love Atlanta
5. I think I'd love Auburn from what I've seen and what I've heard
6. I love being near family
7. I love that my girls love their mimi & papa
8. I love that I found some jeans to fit
9. I love that my dad is getting my competitive spirit flowing in a competition with him to lose weight
10. I love that I'm going to win! (I hope!)
11. I love that my baby girl is completely and 100% in love with me and you can see it in her eyes every time she looks at me
12. I love that my older baby girl is learning and growing and discovering the boundaries we've set and that she still looks at us with complete and total love in her eyes
13. I love my Jesus, my husband, my sweet girls and my precious family

Thursday Thirteen - I'm Excited!


Thirteen Things that I'm VERY EXCITED about
from this past week & for this upcoming week....


1. My last day of work was this past Tuesday! I am now officially a stay at home mommy to my two precious little girls!

2. I had my first stampin' night and it was a blast! It was the first time I did all the preparation and all of that...so yeah me! and YEAH ANNA for hostessing!

3. We're "going home" on Friday for a week & a half! We get to see all our family as we'll be in Alabama, Tennessee & Georgia!

4. Saturday, I get to see my niece, Katelyn, play soccer. She's 3 - how cute is that going to be?

5. Sunday, we're taking all the girls to see Disney's Princesses on Ice!

6. Sometime next week, we're going to visit Auburn, AL to help make the decision on whether to move there or not.

7. My husband gets to go to the Auburn/LSU game on Saturday and he's so happy about that he'd pee in his pants if he were any more excited!

8. I get to chill out at Mimi & Papa's (my parents) house and let them handle the two little people who wear me out!

9. Hopefully, we'll have time to get together with old friends...yes, Amy...yes, Karen...yes, Betsy....that includes you (I'll call or email as soon as I know when we're going to be in Georgia)

10. We get to go see Granny Clark (Michael's grandmother) and she gets to meet Sarah Beth for the first time!

11. We get to go see Ma-ma & Big Dad (my grandparents) and they get to meet Sarah Beth for the first time!

12. My sister-in-law, Amber, is bringing my new niece, Kinsey, down to meet her best friend's, Sam's, new baby girl and that means that I get to meet Kinsey for the first time! I'm beyond thrilled about this one - I may pee my pants if I were any more excited!

13. Did I mention that I'm now officially a stay at home mommy to my two precious little gifts? *grin* I'm overwhelmed by God's goodness to allow me to do this! I am without words to express my joy! :)

Three Years Ago...

It's 7:35pm as I start this post and I'm thinking about what I want to say so I'll just start with what I was doing exactly 3 years ago at this moment. I was grabbing my bags and walking out the door. I had an 8:00pm appointment with the labor and delivery room for an induction as I was a week past my due date. I'll skip the details of the next 12 hours of horrific scariness and the following 10 days in the NICU of heartache and waiting...and waiting...and waiting...to say that on September 5th, 2003, I was gifted with the most amazing little girl. Emma Grace weighed in at 7lbs 6.5oz and 20inches long at 8:05a.m. via emergency c-section. I had never laid eyes on a more beautiful child! What a gift and glimpse of God's love for us!


So, now, three years later...Emma Grace is still my precious gift that I daily thank God for entrusting to me. I can't begin to explain how much I love this little girl - for those of you who are parents, you understand. I wake up every morning to her smiles and giggles and I get teary eyed when I realize just how fast she is growing up. I try to treasure every moment and enjoy each day! She's the sweetest, most kind and tender hearted little girl who truly loves with her whole heart, mind and body.


Happy Birthday to my precious treasure!!!!

Note: I did start this at 7:35 on Sept. 4th and finished it at 11:06 and lots and lots of interruptions later....Heehee...kids are great!
