Happy Memorial Day

Happy Memorial Day! I just wanted to say a big thank you to all the men and women who serve so that we can be free. Thank you for making the ultimate sacrifice for my freedom. We love you Uncle Scott! Ellie is dressed in her Red, White, and Blue...just for you!

Best Birthday Ever!!!

I celebrated my 31st birthday last week. It was one for the record books. Mom and Es came on Wednesday to meet my aunts from Ohio. Es went to Ohio with them on Thursday. We had a little cookout on Wednesday night and Brian brought me a birthday cake from Sweet and Sassy. This is big stuff, my friends! He left work and went to the best bakery in town and bought yours truly a cake. I was so impressed...(I think he was, too!)

On Thursday, Amanda and Addie came to Nashville. Calvin was playing in a golf tournament, so we got to hang out with them. We went shopping, ate lunch, and played at my house. We had lots of fun...wish we could do it more often.

On my actual birthday, Mom and I got to go shopping all day. We got a babysitter for Ellie and we just had a blast. I got lots of new clothes and didn't have to chase anyone out of clothes racks. We ate lunch at California Pizza Kitchen and didn't have to leave an enormous tip because of the mess my child made. We then went to get my haircut and have cupcakes at Gigi's! To top it all off, Mom babysat that night and Brian and I got to go on our first date in almost 2 years!!!!! Wow...what a day!

Ellie wore her hair in pigtails several days last week. It looked so cute until she took them out right before going in to Target. I am pretty sure she looked like a "Garbage Pail Kid." Anyone remember those from when we were little? I got several looks from people wondering if I really brought my child out in public looking like a rag-a-muffin! Oh yes, I did!

Drum roll.....

I know that you all haven't been able to sleep at night waiting and anticipating what Ellie's big girl room was going to look like. Brian and I have had the best time sewing and getting it ready. It is all ready except for the bedskirts...they are in Mississippi! I have to look for just the right bedside tables and something to go over the beds...but all that will come with time. We are currently taking sewing be ready by Christmas...please have it in by May 15!

Just Watching the rain with my best buddy...

Ellie LOVES to stand on the ottoman and look for Pogo, who is the neighbor's yellow lab that lives next door. Today, she and Mimi just wanted to watch the rain together! The outfit Ellie has on was Addie's outfit...she wore it the first week of school....when she was 3!!!!
