Some of us have today off (I'm not one of these lucky individuals but hey, it's alright) but I hope we'll pause today to remember all of our amazing soldiers who remind us every day that our freedom is far from free. It comes at the HIGHEST cost. Thank you to my mom, dad and family members that have served/continue to serve the greatest country on Earth. I love you all dearly!
This week is also very special because we are doing a LOT of celebrating:
Happy anniversary to Amanda & Lenny Mathis!
Happy birthday to a great friend and sister, Lorraine Saxon!
Happy birthday to one of my best friends, Jeff Rose!
We've narrowed down our crib bedding to the final two designs - yay! Both are about the same price for what we'll need, both are SUPER cute for Stella's nursery and would be easy to accent with pictures or wall art... but of course, I can't decide!
No, no, no. Don't worry, it's not THAT delivery. We still have a couple months before Little Miss makes her debut. However, we are receiving a special delivery today - Stella's dresser and hutch is arriving after work!
This means that her crib, gliber and dresser/hutch will be here and assembled by this weekend... hooray for productivity! We're still looking at bedding but have found some awesome choices to consider:
Yep, Brad and I are excited that we're expecting Stella Reese in early September! Many of you already know this exciting news by now (thank you, Facebook) but it's taken me a while to get the news here for a lot of personal reasons including an ER scare, car accident and work getting extremely hectic. God never gives us more than we can handle - this I'm very certain - and the best news of all is baby Stella is doing wonderful. I hope all of the craziness is behind us... fingers crossed!
It's hard to believe but we're in our last week of the 2nd trimester - where does the time go??? I need to get Brad to take a new picture of the bump. It's certainly changed since 16 weeks! Thank you all for your continued prayers and thoughts... they are appreciated more than you know!
