make a deer look timeless...

Next fall will be SO fun with him around!

Since I am 'cable-less' in my summer home, I have turned into a little Reader Ruby [that is for you ktb].  And I highly recommend all of these.

My Sister's Keeper
The Last Jihad
& The Last Lecture

next up: finishing The Four Loves by Lewis

summmmmah time

My days have been routine & quiet 
over the past few weeks.  

And they pretty much look like this:
Wake up
Drink Iced Coffee
Go to Work
Eat Lunch
Go to the Pool {lake on good days}
Go to the Rec*
Cook Dinner with Roommates
Watch Old School TV Series.

Its summertime! Its the life.

 **Disclaimer: I go because Taylor makes me go, and he is 
only using me for my parking permit.

Probably because it reminds me of Tucker & Tripp, the two boys that I babysit. They are teaching me all kinds of new things this summer...

cody + surgery

Please keep Cody in your prayers tomorrow morning because he is having corrective surgery on his feet at 8 am.  I cringe just thinking about it but the doctor will break every toe and position them correctly... ouch and gross.  He broke his leg three summers ago and since then his foot has bothered him so another surgery is needed.  He is in the middle of summer school so I am not sure how all of this will work out but he says it will be fine... [typical cody answer].

his graduation, a year ago.

::Heritage Festival::

{mindy, taylor & myself}
post dancing.
{brittany & mindy}

This past weekend we went home for the 
Heritage Festival. It was a great night filled 
with southern bows and beautiful dresses... 
I of course spent the evening choosing my favorite
 dress and letting Taylor hear about it. 
Afterwards we decided that the evening 
was so great because we saw so many people
 that we love to see and otherwise wouldn't. 
 [And we got to dress up]
