Prayer Schedule

We are members of a wonderful church. We are so thankful to have a body of believers around us and our sweet TJH. 

We also have a great Sunday School class and teachers!

A couple of Sundays ago, one of our teachers was teaching about prayer. One of his biggest points was that our prayers need to meaningful. Because God does answer our prayers. 

He suggested making a prayer schedule to follow to make sure that our prayers are meaningful. 

So, I made one and I've been using it when I pray. I find myself praying throughout the day a lot but when I sit down for my quite time I like to use this schedule to make sure I've covered things. :)

It's Wednesday!

So what if....

  • I'm excited about our first pool day today! 
  • I think this age that Tucker is in is super fun! I can see his brain working so hard! I feel like he learns something new everyday!
  • I'm not too excited about my class this summer...but hey, I'm only taking one and I only have 3 left total before graduation in December! WHOOHOOO!
  • I'm so excited about Tucker's first beach trip! 
  • I don't like when I do eat healthy all day that I feel as though I'm even more hungry....
  • I pray that we are able to move back closer to our family and friends one day. 
  • I'm excited to meet our sweet friend J and J's baby boy this weekend...their baby and Tucker are exactly one week apart! :)
  • I like that I sometimes forget what day of the week it is...summer is the best!
  • I'm glad there are a lot of great activities to do in our town for the summer!

Our song!

The other night Tucker and I were dancing to Pandora and this song came that moment he just laid his head down on my shoulder and we danced. It was like he knew this was our song. :) I can just see us dancing to this song at his wedding.
 (O no, he's never going to grow up!)

So I've made this our and Tucker's song. :)

Our love is unconditional, we knew it from the start. 
I see it in your eyes, you can feel it from my heart. 
From here on after let's stay the way we are right now, 
And share all the love and laughter 
That a lifetime will allow. 

I cross my heart and promise to 
Give all I've got to give to make all your dreams come true. 
In all the world you'll never find a love as true as mine. 

You will always be the miracle that makes my life complete, 
And as long as there's a breath in me, I'll make yours just as sweet. 
As we look into the future, it's as far as we can see, 
So let's make each tomorrow be the best that it can be. 

I cross my heart and promise to 
Give all I've got to give to make all your dreams come true. 
In all the world you'll never find a love as true as mine. 

And if along the way we find a day it starts to storm, 
You've got the promise of my love to keep you warm. 
In all the world you'll never find a love as true as mine, 
A love as true as mine. 

I Cross My Heart

Weekend Recap!

TMan and I headed down to see our family this weekend!

We left Thursday and made it through Atlanta without too much traffic...pretty good since it was a holiday weekend!

This little girl was my driving buddy!

I was still able to get my runs in while I was in PTC, and I just love the golf cart paths that serve as great trails!

Friday was spent getting ready for my lil sis graduation! This was the line to get in to save seats! And it was 93 degrees! ugh! But we did get good seats!

SO proud of her!!

Isn't she just the cutest! She was so excited that night!

I made the cake for my sisters was my first ever cookie cake! 

I didn't have the Mr. to sleep with me, but this didn't seem to faze Ethel...she just snugged by my head! :)

Saturday morning I was able to have breakfast at the good ol' Waffle House with my bff! It was great to talk in person and let her love on TJH!

My mom made me a skirt and she gave it to me this weekend! I love how it turned out!

We visited with more family on Saturday and Tucker was held by many! :) He loved taking a nap on B!

Honey loved playing with TJH! 

We had a wonderful weekend! We are both worn out! :)

Week 16

Dear Tucker,

It's the first week of summer for Mommy! WHOOP!

We had a lot of fun!

Sunday we celebrated Aunt B's graduation from college! We traveled to Dtown to celebrate with her. You were such a good boy and you loved spending time with your Grandpa, Grandma R, Aunt B and Aunt LK!

We had a yummy dinner and dessert! :)

Monday we got to go to our Bundles of Joy breastfeeding group! We've missed seeing our buddies there! You weighed in at 15lbs 6oz! Big happy boy!

You ran with Mommy this week and it sure did wear you out! ha!

You're not the biggest fan of tummy time, but we have to do it. :)

 You do like to play and listen to your octopus!
It's been fun to dress you in summer clothes!

You are drooling sooo much and always have your hand or a teething toy in your mouth! I'm not sure if your teeth are coming now or if you are just getting ready for them!

Wednesday night you and Daddy played a lot because we were about to go out of town without Daddy. You love playing with him! 

Your Aunt K graduated from HS on Friday night so we headed out of town to see her graduate and spend time with our family!

Your Grandpa loves to play and get you out of bed early! :)

GMama got your some summer clothes and a hat to match Grandpa!

You always do so good when we go out of town! Mommy forgot your Nap Nanny, so you had to sleep flat on your back for the first time and you did great!

I just love your smiles!

You got hot, so we let you hang out in your diaper at Honey's house! You didn't seem to mind! :)

TJH, you're getting so big! You can sit on Mommy's hip and you can grab your feet! This summer is going to be so fun! I love you sweet boy!

This beautiful girl graduates today!
 I cannot believe it!
 I'm so proud of her! 
She will be attending college in the fall and I'm a little bit more excited than usual because she will be going to my undergrad college! WHOOP! :)

You are a true example of beauty. Inside and out. You are patient, kind and so very talented! I am so proud of you and all that you have accomplished! I cannot wait to see what you do in the future! I love you!

BEH's Graduation!

B graduated from college earlier this month! 
And since I've been a bad blogger I'm just now posting about it. :) 
I am so very proud of her!
 She graduated in four years with a degree in Writing and Publication! I know she will do something great with her degree!

We had a chance to celebrate this past weekend!
The college grad and her cute nephew!

Auntie B loves TJH!

After the yummy dinner!

Playing with Auntie B!

Dessert and pretty flowers for the college grad!!!


It was a great evening of celebrating the awesome college grad!

Here's to your very bright future BEH! 
We love you and are so proud of you!

It's Wednesday!

So what if....

  • I'm loving summer...I know I've said it like 15 times!
  • I'm pretty proud of myself! I've worked out everyday since Saturday...this Mama will be in a bathing suit soon and I don't want to be too embarrassed.
  • Tucker and I dance around the house when the Mr. isn't home!
  • I love that one of my students already starting writing me letters! Love a pen pal! :)
  • I'm so not tan right now...but laying out in my backyard just isn't cute.
  • I'm so glad the Mr. is enjoying his grad school classes. 
  • I think it's going to be really hard to train TJH to sleep un-swaddled and not in the Nap Nanny. Any advice?
  • I'm soo excited about our summer vacays!
  • I'm pretty much addicted to iced coffee! :)
