360 Months

7.10.2016

So many things to blog about, so little time. The past two weekends have been packed full, R is sick again, and blogging has taken the backseat, but at least the dishes are done (for now) and I went running today so #priorities.

But July 10, 2016, is a day that must be documented. It is my thirtieth birthday and the day R turned eleven months. 
^^^ Please note the bowtie hair bow because girlfriend was not having it. Also, please note that I tried to sit in the gray elephant chair and it was, how do you say, a giant fail. These hips don't lie.

For my birthday, Jordan and I met up with our church friends for breakfast before church, and then later in the day some friends came over for games. R hasn't been feeling well this weekend, but she has been really sweet and snuggly, which I don't hate.

I think birthdays are so fun and always make a big deal out of them. I feel so very blessed by friends and family who make me feel so special on my birthday!

Please be praying for R that she feels better. We aren't quite sure what's wrong with her, but she's definitely not feeling 100%. Maybe another ear infection? And of course be in prayer for our country and our world. I wrote this post on prayer a few weeks ago that is still applicable in these current events if you haven't read it yet.

I hope to find time this week to post pictures from last weekend, but I make no promises. My whole family came up from Texas to surprise me for an early birthday weekend, and it was so fun! And of course I want to post R's 11-month update. Just one more month until I am officially the mother of a one-year-old. HOW. I still don't know what I'm doing, in case you thought I was all knowledgable about baby stuff now.

Have a great week! May you find joy today in whatever circumstance you find yourself.

p.s. A little something for those of you who want more Jordan on the blog. R takes no prisoners.
