Happy Birthday Treston!!!

I know it is late, but...

Happy Birthday Treston!!!
Precious Boy I have loved every minute that I have gotten to spend with you these last 8 months. I can't believe how much you have grown. I am so excited that I get to watch you continue to grow and become a little man. You are such a joy.
Your smile lights up the room and you are the best dancer I have seen in ages. I am thankful that even before you were born God had a plan to "give you hope and a future" by giving you such a special place in a wonderful family where you are loved immensely and will learn about His greatness. I can't wait to watch you grow over the months and years to come. I love you T-bear!!

Summer time!!

It is summer!! I love summer. At least most parts of summer. I don't so much care for the heat. I have really been loving that it hasn't felt like a Texas summer this year. (If you don't live in TX, trust me they are like sitting in an oven...really not pleasant...) I went to a baseball game last night, and not only did I not get even the least bit warm, I didn't even see any mosquitoes!! It was glorious. I have been loving the rain too. I can't get enough of it!!!

My summer checklist is almost completed:
  1. eat homemade ice cream
  2. explode LOTS of fire works...I LOVE THIS!!!!
  3. eat a snowcone
  4. go swimming
  5. eat a homemade (by my dad) hamburger
  6. move at least once (or three times.... )
  7. take lots of summer school
  8. have a birthday
  9. sleep late
  10. lots of reading for pleasure
  11. Watch some great movies
  12. Have a Gilmore Girls marathon!!
I have done 1-7...5 more to go!! Much fun!!
I think the highlight of my summer is that I have gotten to spend lots of time with the Bacaks and it has been amazing!! What was my life like before these amazing people?? I don't remember, but I know it wasn't nearly as great. I mean you gotta love those Bacaks!!

How cute are they??!! I hope you have had a great summer too!!

Woohoo! (Just typing that makes me want to laugh...)

Okay, so most of you know that I am getting ready to move twice in the next few weeks. I have been trying to get everything together for the the apartment I will be living in this fall....My compulsive planning is coming out...I am trying not to let it control me or my checking account. I have already bought a beautiful new set for my bathroom. My next move was to buy this...I have wanted this for quite a while. I have been waiting until I won't have to store it before use to buy it. That time is here. So I made my merry way to Target.com. Care to guess what happened??

NOTHING!!! That's right, nothing. I didn't click add to cart and then type in my card number. I didn't get all excited just thinking about what was on the way and how much I would love cuddling with my new comforter...nope. I didn't do anything because they were sold out. I was sad. I had this perfect room in mind and the rock star in my mental picture was this set. I can't tell you how crazy I have been about this. I decided the only logical thing to do was search the internet. I looked EVERYWHERE. Surely, someone else sold this same comforter. WRONG!!! No one else sold it. I decided I must settle for something not quite as great, something I didn't like as much...So I looked everywhere again. I found nothing I liked. I was about to give up after searching online at every department store, high end retail chain, every random internet site. I decided to make one last ditch effort.

I would check walmart.com....I don't like Wal-Mart, I am thoroughly a Target kind of girl. So I checked and I found this....

I like this. And it is alot cheaper than the other one. I love that God had a plan here. Because of this, kids are going to get new backpacks for the fall!! I love that God is so much bigger than me and my small, selfish plans. How awesome is that!! I love that I am reminded once more that the money in the bank isn't mine. Something I need to be a bit more aware of all the time.
