Updates on Life

Didn't I tell you my dress was awesome?  I LOVE IT.  Seriously.  Best bridesmaid dress EVER.  Oh my goodness, I am so pumped to wear it again in February when we take our Princess Girls out!  ACK!

Anyway, my life has been wedding wedding wedding all weekend and it was AMAZING.  Friday night was the rehearsal and I think we were there until 10pm so I didn't get home until 11-something.  We definitely should have just gotten a hotel in Cincinnati.  Ah well, live and learn.  The next morning we got up early (ok, the other girls got up early...I definitely took advantage of no kids at home and didn't get up until 8:30) and went back to Cincy for the day!  I got home around 12:30am  but got to sleep about 8 hours before picking up the girls for church so I can't complain!

IT WAS AWESOME.  The wedding was beautiful and the reception was SO MUCH FUN.  Seriously, all moms need to go to this kind of party every once in awhile to remember that having kids doesn't mean they are old!  It was a little out of my comfort zone and one guy asked at one part of the evening why I was hanging back.  My response was that while I want to celebrate my friend and her marriage, I also don't want to have a ton of pictures on Facebook that I have to explain to my kids (my big kids that is).  Most people don't believe that you can be at a reception with an open bar with alcohol all over the place and NOT be drunk (or even drinking!).  Crazy, but that is the filter through which I live my life sometimes.

Don't you love this picture?

Made me laugh.  He REALLY is that tall, he is 6'9". 

Other news...

NO, I am not pregnant.  My mom asked me that yesterday.  I'll tell, I promise.  I am down 14.5 pounds now!  ACK!  So exciting!  I definitely wanted to lose some weight before we had another (although as you may by now know we don't time these things so there was no guarantee).  I'd like to lose another 16 but if I get to "healthy" before that I'm ok with that too.  So crazy.

The girlies are good.  Grace decided she wanted to have a tea party so I think that is on the agenda for tomorrow.  We might also try to go to storytime. 

That is the long and short of it.  Life is keeping me busy.  I am reading an awesome book that really has me thinking about my relationship with the Lord.  My kids are beautiful and wonderful and keep me on my toes!

Have a good night!

P.S. Morgan, I miss you!
