Weekend happenings

My weekend started out something like this:

I went to the Jags game on Thursday night and where we park we have to run across the Expressway. Well we made it all the way across and had to run across another lane that merges and I fell off the curb (median)!!! Needless to say I fractured my ankle, scuffed my new seude boots, skinned my knees and palms and also ripped my leggings!!!!

Jamie, Joe, Haley & Ryne were in town this weekend so I was able to see my sweet nephew again! This is Ryne who is about to go Christmas shopping for the first time! Can't you see his excitement!!

Here is Katie- the best friend a girl could possibly ask for- who pushed me around the Avenues mall on the Saturday before Christmas! I had yet to start my Christmas shopping! I will never wait this long again to start. You never know what will happen!! Click on the link and check out Katie's photography website!

Saturday night I had Christmas with my two best friends- Molly & Katie- at Outback. Don't mind my death look! I have been sick all weekend with a cold. I've been pretty miserable considering I can barely breathe and walk.

After dinner Katie and I tried "poofing" our hair! I think we did pretty good! Have you seen the video? If not this video will change your life!

Hope y'all are ready for Christmas!!!

Sweet Boy Ryne Meets Big Sister Haley

Labor & Delivery

***update : November 30- 10:45 a.m.
Jamie and Ryne are both doing great!
A little about Jamies labor.... When Joe and Jamie arrived at the hospital at 12:15 a.m. the nurses were able to get Jamie in a gown before she felt like she needed to go to the bathroom. What she was feeling was Rynes' head coming through the birth canal. Around 1:05a.m. my mom and I saw a doctor walking super fast back to where Jamie was. The nurses kept telling Jamie not to push because as soon as the doctor walked in the room she was going to have that baby. There was no time for an epidural (wow!!) so at 1:09 a.m. Ryne Joseph was born!!!!

I received a text from Joe at 1:15 saying,"he's here!" and my mom and I just looked at each other thinking Joe was lying! The next thing we hear was a lullaby meaning a baby was born!!!!


Ryne Joseph was born at 1:09 am weighing 7 lbs 10 ounces And 20.5 inches long with a head full of black hair!!! We've only been waiting for less than an hour!!!!

I got a text at 11:11 pm on November 29 saying, "my water broke"!!!! We- my mom, Jamie, Joe and myself-made it to the hospital at 12:15.
So far Jamie is almost 5 cm dilated! The nurses won't allow my mom and I in the back so we're sitting in the waiting room playing the waiting game. Hopefully not too much longer and we'll have a screaming baby boy in our arms!

A Baby "Sprinkle"

Saturday I was the hostess (along with her mother in law) for my sisters baby "sprinkle" at my parents house. We had about 20 friends and family show up! I didn't take many pictures because I was busy getting games together, making sure the food was cooked, and greeting most of everyone at the door. My neighbor, Suzy, made the cutest cake ever!!! This cake was a white chocolate cheesecake with sour cream and raspberry inside!!! I'll just say it tasted a little like Heaven!

My soon to be sister in law gave this darling basket filled with diapers monogrammed for Jamie as her gift! How adorable is this??

I think I failed to mention that Jamie's due date has been moved up to November 22!! Which makes me that much more excited to meet Ryne!!

This is Jamie with her 2 closest friends (Megan & Lindsey) she's known since probably the nursery at church. You may remember Lindsey who I was you to pray for when her son Chandler was born and had to go to the NICU. Well look how chunky Chandler is now!

Today I got an email for the MckCruise I'm taking in January!!! There's 25 of us going with 2 kids! I think I counted right? But Its been amazing interacting back and forth with the ladies and men who are going on this cruise! I'm getting that much more excited to cruise with them everyday! And today just proved how awesome this cruise will be! Don't worry for those of who you couldn't come I'll be sure to take lots of pictures! We only have 84 days and counting til we set sail!!!

With the cruise springing upon me I just realized that in less than a month my nephew Ryne will be here!!!! I can't believe how fast my sister's pregnancy went this time around! When she was pregnant with Haley is seemed like forever before I got to meet/hold her. This coming Saturday I'm hosting a baby "sprinkle" with her mother-in-law and I have a friend making the cake! (pictures to come of the cake) I can't wait to have a nephew! It makes me so giddy inside!

And speaking of Haley if you follow me on Twitter (jennadk since I'm completely private unless I confirm you) you will have already read this but she called last night to speak to my mom (Gammy). This is how my conversation went with her:

Me: Hello

Haley: Enna I just want to talk to Gammy!!!!

Me: Ok well I guess I'll talk to you later!

Haley: ok!!!

Wow well I guess she can just talk to me on Saturday during the "sprinkle"! Isn't it so funny what little kids say!

I think I'm back to blogging again! Hopefully I won't take another blogging hiatus for no good reason!

For the last 5 days I have tried to enter my c.c. number onto my itunes store to update my information. Well apparently itunes won't accept my new information but has held $1.00 out of my bank account. Tonight I decided to call itunes support to get you know support to why this is happening. I would really love to buy new music and a few games for my iPhone but looks like itunes isn't having that!

Here's how the automated call went:

Support: Hi, Thank you for calling Apple support line. Do you have a case number?

Me: No

Support: I'm sorry I didn't understand you. Do you have a case number?

Me: No

Support: Ok please tell me what problem you are calling for.

Me: Itunes

Support: I'm sorry I'm looking for a product like iMac, G3s, iPod Nano...etc if none please say "none"

Me: none

Support: I'm sorry I can't help you since you do not have an iMac computer please visit

Me: No!!!! I've looked and I can't find my answer

So I guess I need to invest in an iMac laptop so Apple will be able to help me with all my needs! Looks like I'll put that on my birthday/Christmas list this year!!!

If any of you know why Itunes is refusing to update my information please let me know what I'm doing wrong!

Josh and Ashley are engaged!

My brother Josh proposed to Ashley on her 21st birthday! It was so sweet! He threw her a 21st party at his house and asked me to help make a "bank" cake and record him saying sweet things about Ashley. So on August 23 Josh skipped church to help me decorate the cake while Ashley was visiting her family in Tampa. After 5 hours in the kitchen and a very messy kitchen at that we were finally done! I don't have pictures at the moment because Ashley has my SD card to get pictures printed but once I get it back I'll update this post with pictures.

So Josh asked me to go to his house so I can record him talking about her and I had no clue at the moment he was asking her to marry him. I was in complete shock.

Monday came and I was able to get off work early to decorate his house before everyone showed up. Her parents were there as well as mine, my grandma, aunt, cousins, her "aunt" and "uncle" and their kids and her cousin. It came time to bring out the "bank" cake and she loved it! I have the best picture of her seeing it for the first time. I can't wait to show y'all. Then it came....

I played the video I recorded just the day before and Josh proposed! She said "YES!!!!"

They want a very short engagement and were hoping for a November wedding but FBC,Jax makes you go though a 6-8 week engagement class plus other things on top of that which would push the wedding into Feb.2010.

We went dress shopping this past Sunday and she picked out the most beautiful dress ever. We also got out bridesmaid dresses and flower girl dresses. She asked me and well as her sister-in-law Nicole to be her bridesmaids and Haley and her niece Faith to be the flower girls! I cant wait to help her plan this wedding.

I'm so excited for both of them and can't wait until they start their life together as one!

26.2 training

Who would've ever thought I would run a marathon. Well I'm not there yet but I am training for the 26.2 with Donna Deegan to fight breast cancer. The marathon isn't until February 2010 but it's going to be a lot of training! I'm not a runner although I used to run with 2 friends every night 1.3 miles but I stopped a while ago. Maybe 2 summers ago! This all started when a guy I used to work with asked me if I would do this marathon with him and I couldn't turn him down. Besides I want/need to get in shape.

Today I started tracking everything I eat and my exercises. I'm allowed to eat 1,015 calories a day and only have eaten 850 calories. I also ran/walked 1.1 miles in 15 minutes! Ok I understand thats not the greatest but its a start.

Tomorrow I plan on waking up at 6 to go on a 30 minute bike ride since tomorrow night will be busy. We'll see how that works out for me. I do have a very good accountability partner-Doug- who has asked me what I ate for lunch and dinner and also made sure I started running/walking tonight. He also has told me that he will make sure I'm up in the morning for my bike ride! he works crazy hours at a radio station here in Florida so he'll already be awake!

I'm super excited about this marathon and the changes that will happen with my body! The only thing that will get in the way of this marathon is my 7 night cruise with my mom and other bloggers going on the MckCruise! But there's a track on the ship so I have no excuse not to keep training while away!

So follow me on this journey of my first marathon!

quotes from Haley

If you follow me on Twitter you probably have already read these quotes from Haley. She's staying at my parents house for the next 11 days while her mommy and daddy go to church camp and then head out to Texas for their 5 year anniversary! So without further ado here are a few quotes from Haley.

----"Oh no! That guy forgot to put a shirt on." - We were driving in the car and he was next to us in his car leaving the beach.

---"That's so silly"- While holding her mouth letting out a high pitched squeal cracking up!

---"Enna go to your room."

---"That's not nice do you understand me."

---"Where's Lola & Khloe?"

I'm sure there's more but I'll post a few pictures to hold you over!

This little boy is my oldest brothers fiance's boy Jordan.

Not Me Monday! back

Time to confess everything I have not done recently. This is a way to relive what I did not do in the last few weeks since I haven't blogged in about 3 weeks if not more.


I did not have to sign a policy at work that I will not get on the internet for "personal" reasons. Which means no more Facebook, Blogger, Twitter, Gmail,, Amazon, get the gist! Yes, life at work goes by so slow!

Since signing said policy my manager did not teach me to crochet! I'm making a blanket for when I do infant photo shoots. My first infant photo shoot will be of my new nephew in November.

I'm sure most of you saw the post about Haley becoming a big sister right! Well my sister Jamie and her husband Joe are having a BOY! They already have his name picked out too! Ryne Joseph and I can't wait to meet him.

Since learning of becoming an aunt to a little boy I have not bought a ton of cute outfits for him! Nope! Not me!

Today I should be getting my new iPhone in the mail! I got it since I'm no longer able to search the internet during the day. Speaking of new phones... AT&T ported my number before I got my phone on Friday so when I tried to use my phone it would not dial out! So I have been without a phone for 2 days and I'm actually not going crazy. Seriously! It's been nice taking a break from my phone but I'm excited that I can use all the apps on the iPhone like Lose-it!

I started the 30 Day Shred with my mom on Monday last week and we made it to day 3. We had my niece on Thursday so we didn't get to work out. But within 3 days I could tell a difference in my jeans.

Also on Thursday my mom and I packed up the dogs and Haley to spend the night at her clients out in Ponte Vedra. It's one of their houses that they are never at plus my mom had to find the ladies check book she left behind. So once we made it the house we put our swim suits on and jumped in the pool! Then watched The Lion King in their home theater.

Sorry I haven't blogged lately. I guess I just didn't have much to blog about. Hope you all have a wonderful week. Don't forget to join in with MckMama to read more of what others did not do.

First Wedding Shoot

Yesterday I had the opportunity to photo shoot my first wedding. Not sure if I would want to continue photo shooting weddings with the way this wedding turned out. I arrived on location at 3:30, the wedding was supposed to start at 5:00. When I walked into the church nothing was setup! I was in shock. The bride did not show up until 4:15 then had to leave because the flower girl didn't have a dress. When she arrived back at the church it was 4:45 and she wasn't even ready yet! YIKES! I ended up letting everyone know when to walk into the church, when the minister was to go in front of the church, helped the bride get ready and round up her father from smoking the food to get dressed! I felt more like the wedding planner/coordinator than the photographer. It was so hot (heat index of 105-110 degrees) that the bride ended up not wanting a lot of shots outside. I did get a few good ones though if you ask me!

So here's a sneak peek!
