Going to DISNEY WORLD!!!!

Today Ryan and I along with our great friends Bob and Amy are leaving to go to DISNEY WORLD! We will be back on July 30th. I am so excited to go on vacation and even more excited to go with our friends!

One of my best friends Katie is off to the Virgin Islands today to get married!!!!!! I am so glad that she has found a wonderful guy and wish them all the best! CONGRATS KATIE AND SCOTT!

While talking to my friend Tana today I had forgot just how much I miss seeing my friends everyday at work. Our first day back to work is August 15th and I just can't wait to see everyone. I know that this year is going to be a trying year but I am going into it positive and know that God is in control.

Please send some prayers out to my family and also to all those going through trying times in their health and welfare of their families. One of my friends that I grew up with in church is going through a very rough time right now and I would really appreciate all of you out there to say a prayer for her and her family. Her name is Lindsay. thank you

Our House!

I decided to add some picture of our first home after getting asked to. So here are a few that I have on the camera and I will take some more tonight and add them tomorrow.

This is our Formal Dining room! I painted the room last summer. I could not get the lighting to work for me in this picture.

This is in our entry way of the house!

These are some picture of the kitchen! I painted this last summer too!

Our new mantel thanks to my Dad

Living Room

This Painting leads into our bedroom! More picture to come later!!!!

1 more Day until DISNEY WORLD!!!

Yesterday was a crazy day! My medicine that I have been taking for PCOS made me really not feel well yesterday morning but thankfully to my wonderful husband I was able to rest a little before the shower and he took care of the last minute things that needed to be done!!!

Here is a picture of Karen with the beautiful cake!

Yeah Baby Karley! She will be here sometime around October 1, 2008!

It was great to see some old friends and catch up! After the shower Ryan, Karen, Micah, their son Mark and I went to hang out at their house and I even got to give Mark a bath. Mark is a great one year old. I tell Karen to count her blessings all the time and pray that Karley is as great as Mark is. Oh I can't wait until the day we are blessed with a little one :)

Relaxing Day!

Today was a day of relaxation! I well needed day for both Ryan and I. We just hung around and watched some movies and went to my mom's house to say goodbye to my family before they head on a two week vacation with all my mom's sisters and their families. We wanted so badly to go but had already made plans to go to DISNEY WORLD in FLORIDA with our good friends Bob and Amy! So while we were bummed we could not go on vacation with my family we are sooo excitied to be spending a vacation with Bob and Amy in Florida! They are wonderful friends of ours and are so lucky have them in our lives.

Last night was great! I suggest everyone go on a date night sometime soon it makes you really apprecaite the person you have in your life. I was going to take a picture at dinner but Ryan was all out of sorts with me asking the waitress to take our picture :)

Tomorrow is going to be a super busy day for me. I am throwing a baby shower for one of my best friends. Karen "Ritter" Mashburn at my house. So with cooking and cleaning and entertaining I should be ready to pass out sometime around 6pm! She is having a little girl and her name will be Karley!!! Yeah!

Stating a small business

My friend Tiffany and her mom and I are going to set up a booth at Canton Trade Days starting in September! Oh yes I know BIG STEP!!! But we all three have such great ideas and really want to do this. We are going to try it out month by month and we have agreed to do it for at least 3 months before we give it up. Hopefully it will be successful and we will continue to do it for a long time. It is going to be called............... " Button Nose and Piggy Toes"
Right now I am trying to get a Tax ID number so if you have any idea how to do that PLEASE LET ME KNOW!!!! I will post pics of our stuff soon!

Today we stop being parents to Ryan's sister Leslie's two little boys. It has been so much fun but Oh my goodness I am so tired!!!! I never knew that two little creatures could be soooo hungry all the time! I felt like I was constantly making them something to eat. But boy are they entertaining and fun to be with. I told Ryan today that things are going to be so quiet tonight when they go home. I am not sure if that is a good thing or a bad thing.

Tonight we are going to hang out just the two of us! :) We have not been able to do that since Friday and we are in need of some time for us. I wonder how we will work that in when we have kids? I guess we will think about that when we get there. To all you parents out there.... Call if you want a night out I feel for you and would love to help!!!!

Back Home!!

I just got back home after what seems like forever! I went to Houston for one of my best friends Bachlorette parties on Saturday. It was so great seeing everyone and just getting to feel normal for a while. No Dr. Appointments or blood getting taken. We had a great time just hanging out and catching up! Katie looked great I will post picture later when I figure out how.

When I got back on Sunday I had to go to my Aunts house in South Lake to babysit her three kids. Allie is the oldest she is about to turn 8 and then she has twins Katie and Max who are 3. We had a good time Ryan came out on Monday and stayed with me and then he had to go back Tuesday morning at 6am. Katie has been sleeping through the night but of course when I come to stay she wakes up!!!! It was not so bad good experience :)

So an update on medical ME. Things are better I am getting more used to the whole thing in general. For those who are lost I found out a week ago that I have poly cystic ovarian Disease. So in short it won't be easy for me to have kids and I am freaking out about that.

Please pray for me and Ryan we are under a lot of stress right now and could use the happy thoughts!

This is our first blog and might I say it took me a while to figure out what to say. We are done teaching summer school!!!!! Well at least I am for good and Ryan still has to finish up one more semester but I AM DONE!!!!
We are off to Ryan's family lake house until Sunday! I love going out there!

I am trying to change our template but keep getting an error message whenever I save it. It was really annoying me. I will work more on it when we get back on Sunday. If you have any suggestions let me know.
