blue eyes

never knew I could love someone so much...

If you have noticed, the blogging has seriously slowed down. I'm back in school, and we're crazy busy. Brody is growing like a weed and chatting up a storm. He is such a delight to have in our house, and he gets more and more fun everyday. He's starting to watch every move we make and mimicking us. Gotta watch those little hands and feet behind us! I will make another post soon when I get a chance. Can't wait for next weekend and MSU FOOTBALL!

Brad teaches baseball lessons after work once a week, and this is what he came home with Monday guess is this was probably his last time to challenge a 10 year old to a race around the bases...

the pictures don't do it justice. The doctor says it's just a sprain thank goodness!

thinking about it...

The other day my sister told me about "Trash the Dress" pictures she saw online. I had never heard of it, but once I got to looking I found tons of photos. It doesn't literally mean to trash it, it just means it's not in a normal, elegant background. I understand the dress is really special and has so much meaning, but how fun would it be to do one of these photo shoots?! Tricia, might be calling you soon!



"Trash the Dress photography uses the elegance and beauty of a bride and her gown against a harsh environment or an artistic background where the subject is strikingly out of place. “It’s that contrast between new and clean, and old and dirty,” says photographer Sam Adams of Everlasting Images in Whitehouse, Ohio. He has done Trash the Dress photo shoots in abandoned railcars, snowy landscapes and windblown fields. “A lot of people are turned off by the term ‘Trash the Dress,’” says Adams, who’s had brides sneak their dresses away for the shoots to avoid anticipated family opposition. “But a lot of times, because we usually end up in the water, the dresses come out cleaner than they were the day of the wedding — and everyone loves the photos afterward.”"

can't wait

for May 2010! Only 9 more months until I finish nursing school and get to start working as an RN! I found this picture and caption. It was 30 years ago in Boston. I understand how they felt...

sweet boy

Brody's growing so much, and jabbering up a storm! He is so much fun.


Maybe you don't know what happened last November, but I'm not writing anything in this post except that it was my family member who was assaulted. (apparently alot more people read this blog than I thought)
This was in the paper today. They will be on trial as adults.

fun weekend

I spent this past weekend in Gulf Shores with Shelby (Brad's sis) and a DOUBLE BACHELORETTE party she was part of. There was a total of 20 girls there. She asked me to come along as the "chaperone" in case the condo wanted to make sure someone in the group was at least 25 (all the girls are 24). Nursing school starts back in 2 weeks, so I figured it would be a fun last trip to the beach for the summer.
Anyway- I really loved hanging out with all of her friends, and it was fun to get away with just girls. I'm defnitely going to have to catch up on some sleep because this mamaw is used to getting at least 8 hours a night!
