Next stop was one last beach trip, my last vaca for the summer before the dreaded "year-end" took my weekends away...so I drug myself to the Gulf Coast...ha! Painful, right?
Oh, and I had company... check out this face. Sure his parents came, and kid brother, and Aunt Haley too, but nobody can pull off those curls and actually make me want to get up early at the beach like Samuel can!
Oh, and here's a good one...the DAY BEFORE leaving for the beach, my poor car experienced its first "fender bender." Devastating, heartbreaking. And the first major thing I've had to deal with as a "big girl," on my own, from cops, to tow trucks, to insurance and claims, and in the first split seconds I thought I'd fall apart. Who do I call? What do you do first, cops or insurance? I got so flustered. Then mad. Then sad. Then mad again. But the good news, my friends, I handled it, like the big girl Iam, or I've become, and I've got wonderful friends and family who not only got me through this but who constantly have reminded me that whether its a fender bender or a major 180 in my life, they're there. And I love yall for it.
And thanks to Daddy I've been cruising around in this sporty thing of his while my poor car is being fixed!Whew..on to lighter things...I hosted a "Sprinkle" for my sweet friend Aimee at my house for her second bambino, a little boy due in October...and had an icecream bar. Just what we needed on a hot Sunday afternoon! Here's Mama Aimee sneakin' a little oreo bite!
Sarah and me with our pirate tatoos....yes, I scrubbed and it came off for church on Sunday thank the Lord!Some people got seriously into the theme, what you can't see is the parrot, coconuts, etc...these people were crazy!!Now, you'll all caught up. Well, this is what I've captured in pictures at least. My life is still a roller coaster, I'm a basketcase sometimes, but I'm here, and I'll figure out where I'm supposed to be one of these days. For now its in the bed! And this weekend its on the Plains! And for the next 30 days its in the office for work work work. I cannot wait to see some of your sweet faces this weekend!
