Mix and Match

Where does the time go?
I have had zero time for posting and reading my favorite blogs. I miss my bloggin' buddies.

Things are still hectic around here.

We are slowly but surely getting things unpacked and situated. Keith is going to work on putting up our bathroom cabinet this weekend. We have a pedistal sink, which looks nice, but not so nice for storage. Hence, the cabinet. I need to get our overwhelming pile of mail under control. I also need to go through Chloe's closet and box up the summer clothes and the items she has outgrown.

My MIL had back surgery on Tuesday. She is at home, recovering for the next 4 weeks. We are anxious to see her, so we are planning a trip on Sunday. We are praying for a quick, easy recovery for her. She isn't the type to sit around much, so the upcoming weeks are gonna be rough for her.

I have decided to get crafty. I'm going to attempt to paint a couple of canvases for Chloe's room. I'm also going to attempt to make a birthday present and a couple of Christmas presents. I'll show the finished products in a later post.

I'm also applying to be a breast milk donor. My friend, Beth, told me about this. She has donated her milk. I am in the middle of the application process right now. I really really really hope that I am able to do this. Breastmilk can be the difference between life and death in some cases.

I know that there are about 1,000 more things to post about.... another time. Right now, I am watching my daughter play and blow raspberries and I am just dying to join her.

Have a great weekend all!!!!

A few of my favorites....

These are a few of my latest favorite pictures of Chloe... taken over the last month or so....

Seems like I have only been taking pictures of Chloe, none of the house. Of course, that could be because we are still living out of boxes, after 3 weeks. I am completely slacking. But, with a daughter this sweet around, I just can't bring myself to work on unpacking all day.

I promise, pictures of the house to come.... I just won't promise when.

Birthday Girl

My dear friend Amanda is having a birthday today.

I've known Amanda for about 8 years now. (Is that right Amanda? Has it been that long already?!?!)
We met while working together at a salon. I'm so thankful that God had a plan for us to become co-workers, then friends, and fellow wives and mothers.

Amanda is in one word, fantastic.
I don't know what I would do without her. She is one of the most kind, compassionate and helpful people I know. She goes above and beyond the call of friendship. And, I don't even believe she even thinks twice about it. I am so thankful to be able to call her my friend.

Amanda, this post doesn't do you justice. I just wanted you to know that I love you and am honored to have you in my life.

I hope you have the best birthday ever!!!

After almost two weeks, we finally have internet!

We are all moved into our new house. It is so nice. We are still living out of some boxes and have a lot of situating to do. I'm trying not to stress about it since I know that we aren't going anywhere anytime soon. The boxes will always be here, time with my family is more important.

And, as if moving weren't enough.. we had our first yard sale today. We needed to get rid of some things. We had a successful sale and only had to drop off a few bags at Goodwill afterwards.

I can't wait to catch up on everyone's blogs. I feel like I have been detached from the world. But, since I've been up since 5 am, tonight is not the night for blog reading.....

I just wanted you all to know that we are alive and well and have not been devored by boxes.
