Adrienne's Wedding Shower

Wow, it's been a pretty crazy week post-baby-birth-hiatus-from-work-and-home...

Lots to update everyone on (I know you people live for this!) but first I have to share some photos of Adrienne's wedding shower.  She's getting married May 15th (yay!) and I have the pleasure of being a bridesmaid (my first time doing so!). 

It was tons of fun and Adrienne looked awesome! 

Can't wait for the wedding!!

Lyla Elaine

As I've said before, holding babies is my new hobby for 2010.  And I got to do a lot of that this past week!!

Lyla Elaine was born on Thursday, April 14th at 6:48pm.  She was 7 lbs 8 ounces, and 20 inches long.  And I love her to pieces.  That pretty much sums it up!

My sister Courtney went through a pretty easy day (easy for me to say, right?) and was progressing along nicely, until Lyla decided she wanted to lay crooked and get all flustered with each contraction.  Thus, c-section ensued.
(I call this one my baby-snatching face..)

There were quite a few doting family members ready to get their turn holding that babybundle [hey! that's MY hobby!]

Luckily Tony and I were able to stay in Knoxville for a few days and got in lots of holdage.  Maybe even some head kissing, cheek rubbing, and toe wiggling thrown in there too... maybe.

I was sad to drag myself away.  It will be a month before I see her again, and I know she will be so different!!  But I can't wait til she starts smiling, interacting, talking, walking, texting, etc.  :)

I'm so proud of Court and Byron (he's already a natural!).  She will be (and already is) such a loving mom, and I can't wait to see how she blossoms into this new role in her life.  My favorite was coming into their hospital room and seeing Lyla laying on her momma's chest, with the most contented look on both of their faces.... can't beat that.

Baby Time

My little sister Courtney is being induced tomorrow... and from the looks of things, it's about time!  That's a low baby!

I'll be sure to post baby pics, don't you worry.

Say a little prayer that Lyla doesn't take her sweet time tomorrow and treats momma gently! :)

My little sister is going to be a mother... that's crazy.

[and she will hate me for posting what she called a "myspace mirror pic" - but i'm not there and i required that she take a last-day-pregnant picture!]

Is It Summer Already?

Georgia skipped straight on past spring and hit us with full-on summer.  It's been nearly 90 degrees for a week! 

But I'm not complaining!  Neither is Roxy...

Sometimes I do stupid things.

Hard to believe, right??

Sometimes I do stupid things, like subscribe to the Pottery Barn catalog when we absolutely don't have the money to buy things from said Pottery Barn.  Stupid Pottery Barn and your mouthwatering-but-crazy-expensive-home-furnishings!  Then I do stupid things like go to their website and then they've cookied me and I now get PB ads everywhere online, teasing me.  Stupid!

But seriously.  I loved loved loved their excessive use of starfish, coral, and shells everywhere in the decor.  I secretly want to make our house look like a beach cottage, but scared I wouldn't do it justice and it would just look tacky.  All of their pictures make me dream of summer with a cool breeze from a big ceiling fan on a nice front porch..... 

Our bedroom and guest bath have hints of beachy, but it's just not the same.

I did get some good ideas from my naughty PB voyeurism... I can't wait to go on our beach trip this year (T minus three months and counting) and buy some nautical decor on the cheap to spruce up our house.

Or maybe we should just move to the beach, and I can paint our house a nice Seafoam on the outside, all blues on the inside, and have all of the coastal accents I want.... verrrrry tempting!
