Weekend in pictures...

Colton enjoying his birthday present.
{Notice the black eye - this little guy is all boy. He bumped his head but thankfully everything is just fine -- just a shiner!}
So active!

Colton and Uncle Keith playing some music!

Unfortunately my camera died right after this picture. So, I wasn't able to take any at Whit's baby shower. But I am ripping this picture from her so you can all see how adorable she is!
Told you - she's adorbs! It was a great weekend and we got to hang out with lots of friends!

lil funny...

Don't you just love this little chart! =) I have a great husband but I don't think it would hurt to have this laying around the house just for a quick reference.

I'm covered up at work today - but I'll be back tomorrow with lots of pictures from our super busy, super fun weekend!

Happy Weekend

Yay -- it's the weekend {well, almost}! And so far so good -- Wicked, yesterday was awesome...I had heard and knew it would be good but it waayyy exceeded my expectations so thanks again Lacey for the ticket! Also, my iphone is coming along -- I'm still learning but so far I love it!

We are headed to the ham after work today. I'm looking forward to seeing the fam and lots of friends this weekend! We have a couple of wedding showers on Saturday and a very special baby shower on Sunday!

Hope you all have a lovely weekend!

So, Lacey and I were supposed to go see Wicked tonight. She was sweet enough to buy me a ticket for my birthday! I heard it was awesome from several friends who saw it recently in Birmingham so when we heard it was coming to Memphis we knew we had to go.
Well, I got a phone call early this morning from Lacey -- she informed me that we had a little problem with our tickets. Turns out she mistakenly bought tickets for the 2:00pm matinee show instead of the 7:00pm show tonight. Well, we both decided we couldn't miss it and it would be worth ditching work so that is what we are doing! I can't wait!

There's an app for that....

Finally, I'm getting an iphone! I've wanted one since they came out. I'm always really behind on hip new gadgets -- usually by a couple of years or at least until the price comes down. It's hard for me to justify spending lots of money on a new cell phone, etc. when I already have one that works fine. But work is paying for this one so it's twice as nice! =)

It should be here tomorrow -- or there is slim chance it could be here today. It's coming FedEx and I do live in Memphis so there's a chance....

Happy Birthday Colton!

Today our sweet nephew turns 3! I can't believe he is already 3! He is so precious! I only wish we got to see him more.

Just a few pictures over the last 3 years.
Right after he came home from the NICU.
Christmas 2006. He had so much hair!
Last Christmas -- this is the most recent I have. How sad it that!
Happy Birthday buddy! Hope you have a great day! We love you!

1st camping trip

The camping trip was awesome! We had a blast and I think it's safe to say that we will be doing lots more of it! I'm going to recap below with some pics!

This was the view from our campsite! Not bad, huh?! We had an awesome spot!

There's Coopie! He did so good! I was a little worried about him because he is a barker but he only barked a little {mostly at little kids riding their bikes -- hopefully it was the bikes he was barking at!}.
Our set up!
Standing in the doorway of the camper - notice it's a little blurry around the edges of this pic. Well, I didn't do that on purpose. It was so cold inside and so hot outside that every time I came out to take pictures my lens would immediately fog up!

My 2 guys!

Again...inside this time

Saturday morning we headed to the beach area -- it was so nice! And felt especially good considering how hot it was outside!
Very pretty day!
A look down the beach area
A barge that came through on Saturday.
Me and my buddy hanging out -- Coop spent most of his time here!
Playing cards...
A favorite for the 4 of us.
Also did a little fishing....
But didn't catch anything...

Coop just chilled most of the time. He loved being outside - well, he pretty much loves anywhere we I am!
I put a towel down for him to lay on but he preferred the ground! Typical boy I guess.
Family pic in front of the camper on our 1st camping trip!

Our fire Saturday night. We sure didn't need it for warmth but it came in handy when it was s'more time!
Group shot!
It was an awesome weekend! I'm already looking forward to the next camping trip!

Dad's Day!

Of course I had to do a post just for my Dad -- although he deserves much more than a little recognition on my blog! My Dad has to be the most giving person I know. He has sacrificed so much for so many people but by far the most for his kids! The way he loves his kids is the definition of unconditional love. And I feel so grateful to be a recipient of that! We don't call him "disney dad" for nothing! =) He has taught me so much and has cheered me on my whole life {whether it be in softball games or getting through inventory at work!} Dad, I love you and I hope you have had a great day! I wish I had been able to spend the day with you but I'll see you soon!
Happy Father's Day to all you Dads out there!

Going Camping

It's finally time for our first camping trip! We started planning it about a month ago and I'm so excited it's finally here!
This beauty is parked out front of our house just waiting to be loaded up with our stuff!
We are leaving this afternoon and we'll be back Sunday - so it's just a quick little weekend getaway but I know it will be awesome. I'll be sure to share pictures and details about how the 1st camping trip goes.
Hope you all have a great weekend!

baby supplies

Tried my hand at some new sewing projects recently...
Wanna peak inside?

My first go at burp cloths and a wipe case. And an applique.

Carter is obviously a super popular name right now...this is the 3rd or 4th one I've heard of lately.
