He's On The Go

Monday night Ryne decided to take 11 steps across my kitchen! He's been taking a few steps at a ime before then but nothing like 11 steps! We are so proud of him! Now he's really about to start getting into E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G!
The 30th, Little Man turned 10 months old! He really needs to slow down because I don't think I can handle him growing up anymore.

Thursday Haley called me "Jenna". Ever since she's been able to talk I've always been "Enna". I think she hears Jamie calling me by my name and picked it up! I had to have a heart to heart with her to make sure she knew my name is not "Jenna". So for the rest of the night I was her "Enna" again! :)

House Warming Party

I know I'm 3 weeks late posting this but I've been absolutely busy lately. I closed on my house August 19 and got completely lost going to closing. What a nightmare~!!!! Then I took the wrong amount of money to the cloing table so the lady at the title company was a big ole jerk about be bringing more money! She held my house keys hostage! WHAT!!!! I mean its not like you don't know where I just bought a house at!

So before I moved in I went ahead and painted all the rooms! After 2.5 weeks of painting, peeling wall paper, cleaning, building my new closet, buying all new fans and blinds I was ready to move in! There's still a little bit of trim I need to paint but I have 30 years to get to it! I ruined 3 pairs of yoga pants and endless numbers of shirts because I'm a messy painter. So if you happen to see a sale on t-shirts and yoga pants feel free to buy them for me and/or let me know!

Anyways, I had my house warming party two weeks ago and felt so blessed by everyone who came. I ended up getting a bunch of cleaning supplies,dishes, skillet, gift cards to Publix, Big Lots, Home Depot, Lowes, Bed Bath and Beyond, flash light and batteries, flowers and a number of toiletries! Now I just need to finish writing my thank you cards! Volunteers are very welcomed!

I've already had a slumber party with my bestfriend I've known since diapers! And she's staying again this weekend! I love owning my own house!~ Well, except for the fact I have bills upon bills upon bills. My JEA bill was definetly lower than I thought it would be! That was a blessing in disguise.

Also, another good thing about living on my own is that I'm not eating my mom's home cooking so I'm losing weight! A few people have already noticed!!! Now if I can only get back to the size I was in high school I'd be one happy girl!

At the moment, I am thankful...for everyone in my life.

I am wearing... jeans, Bug Out shirt and flip flops
I wish...a certain somebody would call me!
I am reading...the Twilight series still!
I am working on...nothing at the moment
I am doesn't rain this weekend
I am hearing...the radio and people talking at work
I bet you didn't know...I cut all my hair off! And I dont regret it one bit. I actually want to cut it a little bit shorter!
One of my favorite...scents this fall is pumpkin caramel

An Amazing Day!

Friday night I had one of my bestfriends {Molly} stay the night with me. It was her first time seeing my house since she wasn't able to come to my housewarming party the weekend before. We went out to dinner, rented a few Redbox movies and came back to my house. After the first movie we decided we wanted to bake cookies. I wish I has taken a picture of these cookies! They were bigger than the size of my palm. So we decided to walk next door and give 6 cookies to the soon to be mommy and daddy. Amber was having lots of contractions so when we arrived she was in the bath! Ever since Amber asked me to be a part of Avery's birth I begged her to call or text me the minute they were on the way to the hospital. Well, it didn't work out in my favor....

I ended up leaving work on Friday early so that I could go in on Saturday for a few hours. I ended up not even making into work because Amber was dilating so fast. I hope that when it's my turn to have a baby that my labor and delivery goes as smooth as Amber's.

When I arrived Amber was doing fine. She had an oxygen mask on because Avery's heartbeat wa slowing down. Since Amber was dilating so fast her epidural couldn't keep up with her. She ended up having to move the epidural except it didn't go into effect while she was about to push.

I remember being by Amber's head helping her to remember that soon se would have Avery and this whole painful experience would be behind her. At one point I thought I would pass out. But I kept my cool and continued to take pictures and be there for Amber. At 12:03 Avery was born weighing 7.1 lbs and 20 inches long! She's absolutely gorgeous! I'm so glad I was to watch Amber deliver her and capture so many memories.

Thank God I'm their neighbor because I've had my Avery fix just about every day since she's been home. I just hope I don't ruin my welcome at their house! :)

Owning a house is a lot of work! I've finally finished painting {well except the trim in the hallway} and my house warming party is this Saturday. I can't wait for friends and family to stop by to see my new house.

Today, after work Jamie, Haley, Ryne and myself took pictures for my foyer. I absolutely love these pictures my mom took tonight.

I'm stealing internet from my neighbors house {she does know and has offered it to me} but soon I'll be back to blogging and posting pictures of my finished house!

Have a great week!
