Getting It Done!

I woke up today and started running full steam ahead. It was a BUSY day. I got alot done, though! Here's the rundown:



  • Took Lindy to get some new bedroom furniture. We found what she liked right away, so it's on order as we speak! This is the bedding she wants and she is going to paint her walls a light blue. I think it will be cute.


  • Took Lindy to the eye doctor. Her eyes have been red for about two weeks now. Turns out she is having a toxic reaction to her contacts. Uuugghh! We got her an antibiotic and it should be better in the next day or two thank goodness
  • We are going to the beach for a few days tomorrow, so I needed a new bathing suit and we wanted a radio we could play while we're lying in the sun. I asked the guy at Target if they had any transistor radios and he looked at me like I was from outer space! He said he didn't even know what that was! haha I told him I was beginning to feel a generation gap forming!
  • Had lunch at Panera with my girls.
  • Went to the grocery store and cooked dinner for my neighbor who just had knee surgery.
  • Cleaned out the refridgerator....that's always a fun job!

  • Now I'm about to go pack for the beach!

Also, today my bloggy friend, Kelly, got tagged with a "You Make My Day" award ...



...and I was one of the people she tagged next! I was so excited! Kelly said it was for blogs who brought you inspiration and happiness and we could tag anyone else we thought was deserving. So I wanted to tag a few blogs that inspire me or make me smile.

This was hard for me because Kelly listed several of the blogs that are my favorites, too. I love Caroline, Meredith, Julie, and Leigh Ann and read their blogs every day! But there are a few more blogs that I just love.



Christal at {live, laugh, love} is one of the sweetest people I know in blog land. She is the mother of three adorable children and she just always has the BEST outlook on life. She has great insights into things and she is very real and down to earth. I always enjoy visiting her blog and she inspires me!



Emily at chatting at the sky. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this blog! I actually just started reading it not too long ago, but Emily is just a really good writer. She's funny and interesting and honest. And she has 3 children, two of whom are twins...just like I have! Her dad is a DJ at 91.9 WRCM, the Christian radio station here in Charlotte. He has a good blog, too! Emily makes me smile!




Megan at The Hutchings Family. Okay, there could not be anyone sweeter than this girl! She is such a sincere and loving person and she has the cutest little boy and a wonderful husband. She is out there making the world a better place by working for Habitat for Humanity and she truly cares about people. Love her!!

I love and am thankful for all my blogging friends! Hope you all have a great night!

Have fun at the beach! I think that sounds really fun.

Your day, however, sounds really busy. I hope you got everything checked off you list and can relax for the next few days.

Sounds like a great day! I love Lindy's bedding - her room will be so cute - you must show pics!
Have fun at the beach. I'm not jealous at all.

I absolutely LOVE that bedding! Sounds like you had a very productive day. If it makes you feel any better -- I know what a transistor radio is! LOL
Hope you have an awesome beach trip.

You are so kind to mention my blog. I always feel like my blog looks boring and may sound trivial but it is my life. Thank you for reading.

I love the new bedding. I cannot wait to see the finished product. Be sure to take before and after pictures!!

I hope the Lindy's eyes heal up. That sounds awful
