The big news of the week:

the jones family is moving to Starkville!!!

Brad is getting transferred with Wells Fargo to the Columbus, MS branch beginning the first week of November so we're packing up! I will be in Memphis until our house sells.

We are both VERY excited. Brad is basically more in love with Starkville than me. He's wanted to move back there ever since we left. My parents are there, and his parents own a house site in Browining Creek to eventually retire there, so it all works out!

Everybody pray for our house to sell quickly because it could lead to a very stressful time. If anyone knows of someone looking for an adorable small house in a great area, let me know.

Brad and I are going to Nashville this weekend for a wedding. We are staying at the Vanderbilt Loews Hotel, and I need any suggestions for good restaurants nearby! Believe it or not, neither of us have ever visited Nashville before so we need help finding some good food!

Meet Layla

We spent last weekend in Starkville for my cousin's wedding. Dani came to town too, and she brought her new GOLDENDOODLE, Layla! Layla's dad was a Golden Retriever, and her mom was a standard poodle. She is one of the most adorable puppies I've ever seen. We brought Moose along, and he got a little too rowdy for the puppy, but they had a great time. Here are a few pictures.

New Gadget

This morning I read in the USA Today how Apple dropped the price $200 on the iPhone last night. As in- people who bought them 2 days ago just lost a wad of money overnight. Well...I love my husband, and my husband loves---GADGETS. So I just returned home with our new phone/camera/internet surfer/ipod/thing you can watch tv shows on. I can't believe I bought it, but Brad has wanted one ever since they came out a few months ago- when I heard they were $600 I said "ha yeah right". Now that they dropped the price, I gave in and became part of the craze. Anyway I opened the box, and just looked at it. I don't want to get it out because I think I'll break something on it before Brad gets home from work.

He deserves it- he is a great husband...and he lets me buy new shoes sometimes when I have a bad day. You can't beat that.

Brad and I spent a great Labor Day weekend visiting his parents at their new house in The Woodlands, TX (just outside Houston). His sister, Shelby, was there as well and we all had a really good time. You just can't beat eating at PF Chang's, Cheesecake Factory, and a REAL Mexican joint all in 3 days. We relaxed and shopped, and all to soon it was time to fly back home to the real world.

Luckily, my morning sickness decided to pretty much go away about 2 days before we left, so I was SO glad about that. We went to the doctor yesterday, and Baby Jones is doing good and MOVING alot! I think we have a gymnast on our hands- he/she was flipping all over the place during the sonogram. :) Not the next appointment, but the next we will find out if it's a boy or girl. Of course naturally- Brad wants boy- I want girl. :)

Julia and Slade will have Baby Boy Kraker around Christmas...Baby Jones will be here March 20ish...the Julia's brother Will and his wife Lorin (Langston) just announced they'll be having one about a month after me! Something's in the water...2 for the Krakers in 3 months and 2 for the Chancellors in about 4 months.

Some of you have asked about Julia's other brother, Trey, who was in the horrible boating accident. He recovered and is doing great. It is an absolute MIRACLE that he is alive. If only 1 thing had played out differently that day, he might not have been so lucky. 1. there was a paramedic in the boat who saved him 2. they were in the Columbus area of the river instead of the Brooksville area where they normally go (no cell phone reception) 3. they were very close to the Columbus hospital

Moose is basically a pony now. We sent him to "camp" while we were gone for the weekend. After the guy took him, I cried a little. Brad assured me everyday of how much fun Moose is having. When he got back from doggy camp, he looked like he had been at Fat Camp. He was skinny. Now Moose eats 4 CUPS of food TWICE a day. I told the dude picking him up that, but apparently he didn't remember. On top of Moose's food was a sticky that read "2C x2". Great- they made him anorexic. He only got half of what he normally eats! Our poor buddy...
