Home tour-Extra rooms!

Today at Natalie's home tour is *extra rooms*

Since I'm home from college for the summer, and typically my room is used as a guest room, I'm going to be using it for the "extra rooms" category.
We moved to this house at the end of my senior year of high school so shortly after I moved away to college and never really made any room "my own".
I like this room though..it's very cozy.











TTT!



Top 2 things (not people) you would take to a deserted island

1. MY CAMERA





I'm obsessed with pictures and I love my camera so much : )


2. My iPhone.. I seriously couldn't live 10 seconds without this baby



XOXO,

Summer=lake time!

I don't have much time for blogging right now because I am oh so busy with school! Seriously these two classes are taking over my life..no beuno! Luckily one of them ends next Wednesday and the other one is online so I will have my life back somewhat!

This weekend was so great! On Saturday Adam and I went to his Aunt and Uncle's house on Lake Sinclair to celebrate his little cousin's birthdays. Libby turned 3 and Josh turned 7. We hung out on the lake all day and had a really great time. I love his family so much & am so blessed to have each of them in my life. Unfortunately I don't have any pictures from that day : ( We left the lake and met my family at Longhorn's for a father's day dinner with my grandparents, cousins, aunts, uncles, etc..

On Sunday we went to my aunt's house and went out on the boat for Father's day. It was such a relaxing day! The weather was perfect.


** I love this picture of my dad.. he enjoyed relaxing, which he rarely gets to do! **

After we got off the lake me and my mom and dad went to Mexican with my cousin and aunt. We had a great time with them! Then it was back home and back to school work : (

I'm so disappointed in the lack of pictures I took this weekend, but I love this picture of the lake. It shows just how calm and relaxing our day was!



That is all for now : )

XOXO,
JL

Weekend recap!

On Friday Adam and I met our friend Phoebe at Chops & Hops. Phoebe works at the hair salon next door so we met her after she got off work. We love this new restaurant, it's a fun place to hang out and the food is AMAZING {and cheap!}



This weekend was FULL of baby showers!
On Saturday we went to Alicia's baby shower. She's expecting baby Brayden early August. She has had a really rough pregnancy. She has developed gestational diabetes and has been on meds for a while. The dr's are taking her off her meds this week and she is on total bed rest. I pray that baby Brayden will stay in his mommy as long as he can! I also pray that Alicia gets the rest she needs and stays in bed.. or by the pool ; )

On Sunday I hosted my sister-in-laws baby shower! Carolyne Grace is due late July. I was overwhelmed with the generosity of the people who came. Chelsea and Brett have EVERYTHING they need for CG. It's amazing to see family & friends come together to celebrate such a special occasion. I was so glad 4 of my really good friends could be there, including my two roomies! Adam's mom also drove TWO hours to be there...that meant the WORLD to me! I love her & am so glad she is in my life.



After the baby shower I
went to work with A. He had to water the field and it's always fun to hang out inside Sanford when no one is there. Usually I am there for UGA football games with "92,746 of my closest friends" :p



This week I am loaded with school work. Three tests in three days. I made a 93 on my test today so I was very excited about that : )

I will hopefully have some new pictures up of CG's nursery.. It's a MESS right now with all of her new gifts!



AHHH!!!!!


& I REALLY wish I could go back to THIS..last summer with The Mr. at the beach!!
We are both working and taking classes this summer & CG will be here in July so I don't see us being able to take a trip to the beach.. SO I will just reminisce on last year : )

Soldiers Coming Home Compilation

I said in a post a while back that I wanted to find a way to honor our troops. I think it's such an amazing, selfless, thing that these men and women do & I personally can not thank them enough. I have several family members and friends that risk their lives so that we can live the way we do in America. I hope after watching this video you remember that these men and women have to leave their homes, their families, and their normal lives in order to protect us. If you have a second just say a prayer for all the troops over seas and the ones who will be leaving in the future.

Baby shower #1!

Sooo today was baby shower #1 at my Aunt's house. It turned out GREAT!! Brett & Chelsea got so much stuff! Everyone was so generous and it took three cars to get everything home! After the shower Me, my mom, Chelsea, her mom, her 3 sisters, and my sweet sweet Mr went to Target to exchange some things that they got 2 of.. & pick up a present for the baby shower we're going to next weekend for another friend. I just want to say that I have the most patient, loving, boyfriend EVER.. not only did he go to Target with 7 girls.. he also waited patiently while we shopped for nearly 2 hours AND offered to pay for a car seat/booster seat that was a "last item" that Chelsea wanted to get for CG when she transfers from her infant seat. It's days like this when I'm reminded of how perfect he is and how God couldn't have chosen a more perfect person for me :)

Me & Adam <3

Presents!!

Proud parent's-to-be!

My brother was very excited about Carolyne Grace's new stroller & car seat :p


We're heading to the lake in the morning.. can't wait to spend the day out on the boat relaxing. I start my summer classes on Monday so this will be the last chance I have to relax for a while..

XOXO,

TGIF!!

Horrrray, we've made it through another week! I am so excited for it to be Friday, because that means tomrrow is Saturday, AND THAT MEANS my sister-in-law Chelsea is having her first baby shower. I'm not excited at allllllllll... ; ) ha! Well, I found this blog and decided to join in on the questions!


1. If you could go back to college would you change your major? Or, if you were to go to college right now...what major would you choose?
Well since I'm in college now I'm not really sure how to answer this question. I am an early childhood education major. I have changed my major back and forth 5 or so times.. but I always come back to ECE so I'm sure I'll be sticking with it.. I guess I kind of have to at this point, I've gone too far : )


2. What do you love most about your home?
I'm home for the summer at my parents house and the thing I like most about their house is their neighbors!! They are all awesome people. The thing I like most about my apartment in Athens is my patio. I love to sit outside on my computer, or do my homework out there. My roommate and I are moving into a new apartment in August with another friend, but it has a patio too..so I'm sure that will be my favorite place!

3. What type of books do you like to read (if you like to read at all)?
I love to read...except I don't have much time...and college proffessors rather make you read things like "Christianity and Paganism in the Fourth to Eighth Centuries" *ughh barfff...seriously!* When I do have the time I enjoy Christian authors.. Beth Moore is my favorite, I'm currently *trying to find time to read* her book So Long Insecurity..so far so good!

4. What is the grossest thing you've ever eaten?
I'm a very, VERY, picky eater and I don't try new things too often. So this is pretty lame, but this one time I got a Chickfila chicken sandwhich WITHOUT pickles.. and they gave me pickles..and I took a bite and about freaked out.. EW just the thought of pickles freaks me out.. blahhh..


5. If you HAD to be a character on a TV show, whom would you be?
This is a tough one because I am in college so I still watch *lame* shows like The Hills.. but I am also a HUGE Sex and the City fan.. So I'll just go with both.. I would LOVE to be Lo Bosworth from The Hills.. classy, sophisticated, GORGEOUS, great clothes, perfect boyfriend, good job, she's got it all! But on the other hand, if I wanted to be a grown up on TV I would definetly chose Charlotte from SATC.. She is ME.. I am HER.. perfect match!
Well, I'm leaving work & going to work on more baby shower crafts!
XOXO,
JL
