Wow - it's been awhile!

I just realized that it has been quite some time since I last posted. I'm sure I was sorely missed. :)

The Wedding:

Very fun and very tiring! It was beautiful and everything turned out just right - just like Katie imagined it...except my camera didn't make it. It died the night of the wedding. Janelle emailed one picture from the rehearsal dinner -

I missed Charlie like crazy but my family took good care of him - he plenty of people to entertain him, that's for sure!


One big reason why I haven't posted is that I've been dealing with some kind of shoulder injury since early last week. I have no idea how it happened - maybe incorrect push-up position - but I've been to the dr and have been diagnosed with tendonitus of my rotator cuff. It really stinks and everytime I think it's getting better, I overdo it or move it funny and re-injure myself. :( So tomorrow I'm taking a sick day and staying off my computer all week-end in hopes of finally recovering. We'll see!

I'm also experimenting with a new meal plan this month - meals for a month. Janelle gave me this idea and I'm giving it a try: plan all your meals for a month and make one big trip to the grocery (for me this turned into one big trip to the grocery and one big trip to Sam's). Then just go to the store for the fresh stuff you need once a week. Supposedly this will save time and money. We'll see. I'm all for saving money since Ryan and I put ourselves on this big-time budget. :)

In other news, my most recent and most fashion-forward Spring wardrobe addition: bright yellow patton-leather flats with a small pointy heal. They look fabulous with white pants and jeans. These shoes were very budget-friendly, weighing in at a whopping $9.99. I got the idea of yellow shoes from one of the fashion segments during the 9:30 segment of Today.


We are going thru a big "re-org" at my office, a corporate re-structuring if you will. Think The Office - Branch Closing episode. It should be interesting. I may be getting a new boss and a new team. Can't decide if that's good news or bad. Stay tuned.

I'm also working on trianing some resources "off-shore." (read: India). So my hours are very odd and believe it or not, Schoolhouse Rock- How a Bill Becomes a Law has been part of our training agenda.


He's turning into a little boy. :( His newest thing is an obsession with trucks. He drives them around the room, using his little sitting crawl. It's very cute. What is not cute, however, is how he expresses his frustration when he a) crashes the truck into something (a frequent occurance in our little house or b) turns it over and can't get it back on all fours. He throws a major fit. I think he's frustrated that his body can't do what his mind wants to do, but geez, I wish he'd be a little more polite about it.

(In the picture above, he's saying "Mmmm" because he is starvin' to death and loved what I'd just fed him.)

Easter plans:
Ryan is working all week-end (sad for us :( ) so Charlie and I are headed to Savannah. I don't want to spend the week-end alone. So we'll attend the big Easter egg hunt and pancake breakfast with my family at our home church Saturday morning and then spend the afternoon at the beach, all bundled up as we are going to have some record-cold temps in south GA this week-end!

Happy Easter!

Lives again our glorious King, Alleluia!Where, O death, is now thy sting? Alleluia!Once He died our souls to save, Alleluia!Where thy victory, O grave? Alleluia!

Soar we now where Christ hath led, Alleluia!Following our exalted Head, Alleluia!Made like Him, like Him we rise, Alleluia!Ours the cross, the grave, the skies, Alleluia!

How funny we were both watching schoolhouse rocks the same week. What are the chances?

Where did you find the shoes, Emily? They sound cute! Are you decking Charlie out in something festive this Sunday?

Great pictures. Glad you can enjoy the beack this weekend, although sounds like tanning will have to wait for now. Good job on your shoes. I love good bargains! And the low-heeled shoes are a Mom's best friend!

Wish I could have seen you some more when you were in town. We need to swap phone numbers!

I'm so so happy for Janelle!
