Sprout | Weekend Update

This weekend was crazy, but so productive!  I loved and hated every minute of it!  ha!

For starters, my mom, sister and I headed to the Vera Bradley Outlet sale on Friday which was a DREAM compared to other years.  My only complaint was that I was tired and my feet hurt when it was all said and done.  That evening, we just hung out at home.

Saturday, we had our maternity pictures with Britt Lakin in the morning.  The following that, we made a trip to Home Depot for more nursery paint and lunch.  From there, we got ready for our couples shower at our friend's house.  I wasn't sure what to expect, other than a great time... and S's quote from the next morning was that he couldn't believe that he could utter, "I cannot believe how drunk I got at my baby shower last night!"  Funny, but so true.  It was a great time and I'll post pictures about that soon too.

Sunday, we painted the nursery walls again, only to find out the paint we had just used was off a little, so we now have to paint every wall again.  So annoying.  We also got a truck full of mulch dumped in our driveway.  We put almost all of it out and we're doing a little remodeling of our front beds before we use the rest.  It looks so amazing with the new black mulch.  Everything stands out so much more!

After mulching and lunch, we cut up some plants and re-designed our front bed.  Then we headed to Home Depot and Lowe's to price some plants for our improvements.  Luckily, it's not going to be too much to get the job done!

Lastly, we finished more painting in the nursery.  I say we, but it was really just me (which was the part I hated) and then S hung the shelves in the nursery which look so good!  It's really starting to come together and I'm so thrilled!

We have plenty more on the list of things to do, but it's really starting to come together!  Very exciting!

that nightmare

Time is passing and permanent/next step decisions AREN'T being made about where our marriage is going.

Not because of anything other than HOPE....

Hope that these changes are real.  I can't deal with an act anymore.  I'm done with those fake attempts.  It just won't work for me.  I can't.

Hope that he really wants to change.  Because he's the only one that can make that decision for himself and not anyone else.

Hope that a new normal is really a possible option.  And not just a glimmer of something that will eventually be shattered and destroyed.

Hope that we could work through all of this and actually land on our feet.  But he has to want to do those things and my guidance won't help him.  He's got to want to do them on his own.  I can't help or ask or guide.  He has to do it.  Alone and with the help of God.

Hope that the narcissistic behaviors are being dealt with in positive ways and won't resurface.  With the help of prayer, guidance from h…

my little model...

There is a blog that I follow of a photographer that I saw at the Delaware County Fair. Her studio is near my home town and her pictures are very vibrant. I enjoy looking at different aspects of photography and I like seeing how didn’t people capture pictures and scenes… I guess you could say I’m envious.

While following her blog, I saw a post that stated Calling All Furry Friends and immediately responded. I have always wanted to have Toby get professional pictures done but I just fear that I wouldn’t pick the right person to capture his personality.

Anyway, as you can read in the link above, there were a handful of photographers at Megan Morgan’s studio and they were all going to be there just to take furry friends pictures.

Of the people that were there two have uploaded their pictures and Toby is in them!

First, Megan Morgan’s blog: Weekend Workshop

Then, Holly McCaig’s blog: Dogs Everywhere

They all captured some great pictures and I can’t wait to get my hands on them so that I …

Starting here..

I know that I haven't really updated this in a long while. I apologize. In the moments it was hard enough to survive, let alone write about it or find time to write about it.

With that said, I've told people over and over again that I'm going to write again, just not sure where to start.
So, today, I'm starting here.
My mom is terminal.  
Words that I cannot believe have to leave my mouth or my fingers.
She's been battling Ovarian Cancer for well over 10 years and this last year or 8 months+ have been just the worst.  Her body is being consumed by cancer and with every day that passes we are just another closer to losing her.
She's fought this whole time and continues to beat the odds that the doctors have placed before her. She's set goals and surpassed them and when the doctors say something, it's like she mentally tells herself that it's just NOT going to happen and she flies by those measurable items.
She's been a rock star and I have known …
