Long overdue update!

Life has been crazy. I'm sure you can relate. The madness has started with the birth of our nephew on October 25th. I got down there on Thursday night and stayed with my good friend Christy for the weekend since things were nuts at my sisters house where I usually stay. She was a wonderful hostess! Ivey started labor at 10 am, kind of sort of, on Friday, and went all night long and Jackson was born at 6:04 am on Saturday. She was a trooper. Adam, mom, dad and I camped out at the hospital all night long. We made our home in the lobby where we each got a little love-seat that did not show us any love. haha. Those things were not the most comfortable, but better than nothing! It was so amazing to finally meet him and I can't wait to go down this weekend and see him again as he is almost 2 weeks old. Also in between all that on Friday I went to a job interview. I'm going back this weekend for a second interview, we'll see?!

Then, the Monumental event of getting my braces off! Yay! finally! I was told that a) I don't look any older b) I look five minutes older c) that I look 16 instead of 15 now. The whole goal was hoping to look older and be taken a little more seriously haha! Oh well, I guess I'll be the mom who looks 25 in her 40s? Wishful thinking? maybe... The picture I have is not very good but I'll put another up soon, it was the best I could do for now.

Then Adam and I got to take engagement pictures this past weekend. It was soooo fun and I can't wait to see them. Hopefully I can post a few I'm not sure what my photographers rules are about them.

I only have 8 more days of class left ever in my college career, and I am thrilled. I am really going to try not to be one of those people that says I miss college, right now I don't think that's happening but who knows, could. I have decided that I am not going to walk for graduation since it is December 21st! so late! I have too much other stuff going on then to make a special trip to Boone on a Sunday nonetheless to sit through a boring graduation. So just trying to finish up and keep up with my life that seems to be blurring by me right now!


  1. yayyyy!!! It looks so good- and I definitely think you look more than 5 minutes older... (that was funny). I really love it- and can't wait to see you in person!! Love you! Will we get to see each other this weekend? Good luck on your 2nd interview!

  2. you look so beautiful!!! i can't believe you're getting married in less than 2 months!!! i hope they go by smoothly!! miss you
