The women in my life are keeping me busy!
Yesterday I told you that Gabby got engaged.
And guess what else?
Husb and I got a roommate.
The older of my baby sisters moved in with us.
She had just walked in through the door from work when I took this picture.
She wasn’t super happy about it ;)
Hahaha…I forgot how fun it can be to annoy your sister!
Then I made her go on a walk with me.
It ended up being a longer walk than expected.
So we entertained ourselves.
Entertained ourselves with weird, creepy sculptures.
It’s what sisters do.
On another note…
guess who is now a high school graduate!
She is my honorary little sister, high school graduate and soon to be college student.
And I’m super proud of her!
However…she is so not the same height as me!
It’s totally the heals ;)
You might remember my babiest of baby sisters from this post.
And her boyfriend Blaine from this post.
Well folk…I have some BIG NEWS to share with ya’ll. THEY ARE ENGAGED!
Yep…the baby is getting married.
How old do I feel?
Let’s just say I’m feeling it ;)
They’ve actually been engaged for about two weeks but it took forever for me to get a picture of them.
I had to bribe them with ice cream to get this one!
Congratulations you guys!
Gretta…I love you, and am very excited for you and will help you with anything you need!!
Blaine…take good care of my sister or in the words of Snap! “I will attack and you don’t want that”.
Hahaha…don’t worry…I just needed a reason to link to that awesome song.
Your a good sport and take all my teasing like a champ.
That’s an important quality for a brother-in-law to have ;)
Here is my pre-marriage and marriage advice.
”And you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your mind, and all your strength”
You can’t go wrong with that!
I appreciated and enjoyed this sermon today.
Thought I would share!
Other good stuff…
my 5k training is going awesome.
I reached 3 miles yesterday!
From here on out it should be a piece of cake.
Please say yes ;)
At least I proved to myself that I can do it.
My trick is to pray it out.
I start to give up and then beg God to keep me going.
He answers my prayer every time.
But boy do my legs hurt afterward.
And as promised, here is the recipe for the tamales I blogged about last week!
Antibiotics are my friends today.
Yesterday…after four days of lava throat and a morning of swollen, goo eye I went to the Dr.
I came out with antibiotics, an upper-respiratory infection and pink eye.
How the heck did that happen?
All I know is that I want to get better…
the sun to start shining…
and to make these.

Noticing a theme?
I have an excuse.
The worst part of this whole being sick thing…
the Dr. said I was highly contagious.
So I had to miss homework club last night.
It was the last night of club.
We are out for the summer.
And yeah we will have summer field trips…
but it isn’t the same.
I didn’t get to give my little pumpkins and stinkers end of the year hugs.
So consider my current craving of salt and chocolate my desire to eat my sorrows away ;)
We made it home from The Farm Chicks Show.
It was a blast…but…I came home sick as a dog.
I have no idea what is wrong with me or how I caught it.
Sore throat, headache, stuffy…and every inch of my body aches.
As a result…I have yet to find the perfect spot for all my Farm Chicks finds.
I will soon tho…and then I’ll show you.
And I’ll get my pictures in order and show you all the fun we had.
look at how sweet my husband is.
There were TWO bouquets of flowers waiting for me when I got home from the show.
Husb went to our local farmers market on Saturday and bought them for me.
And he also bought some frozen tamales from the Tamale lady.
Which was perfect since I feel so crappy and didn’t want to go to the grocery store or cook myself lunch.
Thanks sweet Husb!
On a different note…guess who we had dinner with last Friday before I left for the show.
Tammy from Tammy’s Recipes!
Tammy and her Husband Joshua were kind enough to have us over for dinner, dessert, a game of Taboo (where I had a very hard time remembering the word artery) and lots of baby holding.
Their kids are adorable and her quiche is delicious.
Thanks for having us over guys!
Now I’m off to make myself some hot tea and lay on the couch.
Will be back soon and hopefully feeling a lot better!
As if I blog on the weekends anyways.
Or during the week lately for that matter ;)
But really…I will be away for the weekend.
Cause I’m going to…
The Farm Chicks Show!
Finally an event in my state!
That I can go to…instead of only read about on other blogs and drool over.
And I know my blog is just a measly baby fish in a pond full of big blog fish…
but if any of you are going to the show and see me please say hello!
There might be a small chance right?
That I have blog readers that aren’t related to me?
But if there is and you do see me and I look mad or mean…don’t let that deter you.
My face just tends to look like that.
I’m just concentrating and obviously can’t do that without a frown.
Esther’s wedding pictures prove it.
I got to see them on Facebook today and I looked mad in most of them.
I guess I need to work on my happy face.
Hope you guys have a great weekend!
I’ll tell ya all about Farm Chicks when I get back!
The tree/bird house craft went over pretty well.
All night I was calling it the bird house tree.
I basically speak in sentence fragments at homework club.
I think it’s just way to much stimulus and my brain stops fully functioning.
I can prove it.
Me…letting Kim…who is a teenager and new to driving behind the wheel of my car.
I don’t know what possessed me that day to give in and let her drive.
And don’t be fooled by this picture.
I know it looks all cheerful with her big smile and all.
Two minutes after I took this picture we came to a four-way stop.
And for some reason didn’t stop.
All I can say is thank you Jesus for keeping us safe!
And for catching my heart cause I know it just right outta my throat!
