In Good Company

In the past two weeks, I have realized how wonderful and supportive my friends are. I am way behind with the blogging!

Two weekends ago, my friend Courtney and her baby, Will, came for a short visit! It is amazing how many years have gone by, yet our friendship has stayed the same. We could have fun and laugh in a cardboard box. We were roommates in college, and I do miss those girly times of just hanging out around the house and talking about nothing. I hope we still act silly when we are 50! Anyways, her son is precious! He has the most gorgeous blue eyes- just like his Mom! He was so good- we even got to shop, eat, and even relax! It made me so excited about the arrival of Henley. It's funny because I thought that it would make me nervous, but I really think Justin and I are ready. Of course, I have no pics to show, but we had a great time.

I worked with another pharmacist this week, and he reminded of what type of pharmacist I should strive and want to be. At work, I have had a bad attitude for the past few weeks. I have had a hard time putting a smile on my face, and just be nice to people. Do you ever feel like a smile hurts? Well, I told him about how hard it is to just be nice sometimes, and he said, "well, it can really go a long way." This phrase almost knocked me down. I needed to hear this so badly. This simple phrase is all I really needed- I think I may have found my smile again.

This past weekend, I had a girly shower in Memphis. My Mom drove in from Chattanooga all by herself, which was so sweet because she just had hip replacement a couple of weeks ago. What wonderful friends I have! I hope everyone feels as much love and affection from their friends as I do. I really don't know where to begin. I just want everyone that was involved to know how thankful I am. I will post pictures and give details tomorrow. Too tired tonight...

Maybe I'm just emotional today, but I felt compelled to share how truly blessed I feel to have such incredible family and friends in my life!

Good Times in Chattanooga

It has been a crazy summer so far! We had a very nice get together in Chattanooga. My sweet sister-in-law and her Mom hosted a couple's shower for us. It was so perfect- my favorite food, flowers, and colors. We got some amazing gifts, and it was so good to see old friends we don't get to see that often.

Justin's favorite gifts were a box of 216 swaddlers (thanks Andrea) and a miniature pink soccer ball. Typical.

We got to spend some time with our adorable nieces, Riley and Jancey. It is so funny to see them get confused when they look at Justin because he looks just like their Daddy, Jason.


My friend, Ada, drove in for the party. It was so sweet of her to come all that way- pregnant and all. She is a couple of weeks behind me, and it is great to have someone to talk to that is going through the exact same thing. We laugh because our pregnancies are so different. Of course, she looks so cute. Her little girl, Stella Beatrice, will be beautiful just like her Mommy.

Bump ta Bump...
