Can't seem to find the time.....

TO B.L.O.G.....
Sorry. It just hasn't been a priority in my life lately. Unfortunately, my love for reading them hasn't really changed. :) It's still sort of high on the priority list. :)

Life has been crazy lately. A good crazy though. The month of June flew by. And, well, today is July July has flown by JUST AS FAST.

Cymbidium has just been such a blessing in my life. More importantly, Robyn and Rachael. It's so exciting to be apart of a cool business.

Today we went over to our friend Paige's

She just recently had a baby girl. Her name is Zoe Elizabeth but mom and dad call her Lizzie. We thought we'd relieve Paige from a really hard week and let her go have some time by herself. So, I got to play mom for about 3 hours. It felt so nice to just sit in a rocking chair and rock a baby. ON A DAILY basis, someone asks me when we are going to have kids. My answer is still, I don't know. I know for a fact that there are so many women out there that are having a hard time doing so. It's scary for me to think that could be me. I obviously have had to give that up to the Lord. His purpose is far greater than I know. So, it was nice to just rock little Lizzie and sing her to sleep. Hopefully some day soon the Lord will bless Peter and I with a child. I KNOW I am not prepared today. :)
Moving on...

As of this week I have picked up Spin/Cycle class at the gym. It's been such a great stress/brain reliever. My underneath bones on the other hand are stressed BECAUSE of said Spin/Cycle classes. A man who does triathalons led our class last night. He instructed us that he was not leading us in a spin class. SO, I left confused and worn out. As a matter of fact, I left with salt on my arms....if that tells you anything.

To make up for my hard work, I made a banana pudding. Don't worry, I took it to Paige, but had a bowl there myself.

Miriam, sweet Miriam, came in town last weekend. Here's some pics of our sweet time.

This first picture is of us at our pool party. We brought back the ole "pool' doos! Mine of course was a hit!
This next picture is of us at dinner on Saturday night. My old roommates who will always be near and dear to my heart. And last week we sent off Chavon and Casey to Mississippi. (I just had to sing the song in my head to spell that.) My face was so sunburned!! I used expired Arbonne Sunscreen. It apparently did not work. On top of that I had been crying for an hour.

And well, here's a close up of my crying red face. Ugh. Sorry skin....

Peter and I in our family portrait taken at 9 in the morning in Ohio. Please don't look to close. I didn't wash my hair, etc.

Layla-Grayce turned ONE! We had the opportunity to host her party here at our house. Here's the present we got her for our backyard. Now everytime she comes over she can swing! Henslee's doing a great job of pushing her.

Unfortunately, she fell asleep in her birthday present. :)

And, our dining room became the place to be! PRECIOUS little girl.


Peter and Charlie are still best of friends. My mom came to stay at our house over the 4th of July to babysit Charlie and to study/shop. She graduates from ACU with her Master's next weekend in Nursing Administration. We're making her wear the cap and gown and walk the stage. :) Needless to say, while she was studying/shopping, she happened to LET Charlie sleep in the bed with her everynight. So, you can imagine what happened when we came home. Charlie wants to sleep in our bed. Some nights she gets up there in the middle of the night and I never know. (She ALWAYS gets on my side. She's smart.) So, we're having to try to undo that situation. She's just so freaking sweet!!!! Ugh. She just blesses my heart on a daily basis. :)

Ummm...that's all I have to say for now. Soon, I will be helping Robyn start a blog for Cymbidium. So, get excited!!!!!!
