A Broken Record

In the chance of sounding incredibly needy, whiny, and high maintenance (which by my terms is just another way of saying high quality ;)! ), I am going to indeed whine some more.  MY COMPUTER ISSUES ARE MAKING ME MOODY, SAD, AND A BIT IRRITABLE!!!  I have been working for nearly TWO WEEKS at this and I feel as if I'm on a hamster wheel running round and round.  I find it RIDICULOUS to pay nearly two grand for a computer for its space to fill up and then be absurdly complicated to clean off.  I mean, yes, I have a slight picture-taking addiction.  But can you really blame a gal for taking 171 pictures of her precious child playing in a mud puddle in a mere thirty minute span?? Yep, didn't think so! ;)

Moving on...

I thought I would give a brief update on life and share the exquisitely few pictures I HAVE managed to get on this blasted thing.

1. I have started boot camp.  Uhg.  What was I thinking???!!!!  Let me assure you, I wasn't.  But I sure do love my Smoothie King run afterwards!!  I might have a slight Strawberry, Kiwi, Papaya addiction...

2. I  My husband and sweet Aunt Becky planted me a garden.  I watched- not gonna lie- and directed.  They found me to be more of a hindrance than a help, so they told me to just stay out of the way and deligate.  I was in charge of the dog.  Pretty good trade off if you ask me!

Becky- Master Gardener

3. The dog ALSO now sleeps with us.  I'm thinking there are six feet too many in the Murphree bed.  I plan to change P's crib to a toddler bed ASAP!

4. Summer so far has been AMAZING but OH SO BUSY!! I threw a shower for my sweet friend Leslie last weekend and have been catching up on NUMEROUS monogramming orders.  SO SO SO grateful for all the sweet souls out there willing to help bring home Miss Ruby-Grace.  {Sigh...} CAN'T WAIT TO SQUEEZE HER TIGHT!!!

Cam, Becky's dog, the Lab-weinie

5. I actually have a clean house right now- that seriously NEVER happens.

6. I found an otter box for my cell phone (after dropping my previous one twice and shattering the front into nothing but glass crystals) online for $3.96!!!! It retails for $50.00!!!!! I LOVE my friend Carly for helping me become a much"savy-er" shopper!

Justin, lovingly digging holes in the rock hard cement dirt

7. I have fallen prey to the coupon addiction.  I even have a really cute organizer.

8. Mom and Dad's pool has become my home away from home.  Ahhhh- seriously, if mermaids were real, I'd be one!

Hankaroo!! Working as hard as his Mommy! ;)

9. Beach trip is scheduled!! Very excited about Pier Park and building sand castles with my little bitty!

10. AND- the MOST exciting of all... Justin and I have been working hard on Miss Ruby's application.  We HOPE to have everything sent in by the end of the month!!!!!! EEEEEEKKKKKK!!!!! It's so amazing that this life long dream is creeping into a reality!!!! :)
