Ok...so, no-I haven't fallen off the face of the planet! Haha. I have just been totally, insanely, ridiculously and exhaustingly BUSY!! Y'all...this job may just kill me. Starting in a new grade level, in a new school, and with lots of new standards and expectations makes for non-stop work. Anyway...in between all the working, I HAVE managed to have a little bit of fun, too, and that's what I like to focus on! Let me do a quick re-cap. Since I talked to you last, here are a few things I have been up to.
1-I hosted a Ladies Night for all the girls in my Sunday School class. I fixed dinner for everyone and then we had a friend of mine come speak on "Renewing Your Walk With God". She did such a great job! We had about 16 people and it was a fun night.
2-This is my sweet friend, Leigh Ann.
We have been friends since high school and I love her. We don't get together as much as I wish we could, but she is the kind of friend that when we ARE together, it seems like we have never been apart. You know what I mean, right? We went out to dinner this week and I absolutley loved catching up with her.
3-I got to see Laura and Lindy. They came home this weekend for Ashley's shower. Steve and I took them to dinner Friday night at one of our favorite restaurants...Cajun Yard Dog. It was a busy weekend, but it was fun seeing them!
3-I saw two really good movies...Despicable Me
and The Social Network.
Both were great for different reasons!
4-I have joined the choir and today was my first day to sing in church. I am having so much fun.
5-I attended a wonderful shower for Ashley yesterday that all her grandmothers and aunts threw for her.
There were so many people there and everyone was so very generous and thoughtful. She is a blessed mommy-to-be. The shower was held at our church and I think about 45 ladies were there.
I gave her this painting....
It was done by the talented Jamie Garner! I sent her a picture of Ashley's bedding....
...and she matched her bedding perfectly! Thank you Jamie!
Here are a few pictures from the shower...
Bless Ashley's heart...she was so hot. Her face was so red the whole time. :) Only 3 weeks to go!!
It has been a whirlwind around here lately, but I am trying to slow it down a little this week. I need to enjoy some down time before that sweet baby gets here. Then everything will pick back up again! :)
