  • i began my morning with the love wins crew downtown.  it was a beautiful morning surrounded by beautiful people.  
  • next, i hung out with some of the ladies from church packing backpacks full of school supplies for neighbor to neighbor.  
  • then, i headed to get my hair did and spend some time with lacie.  not only does she always do a great job on my hair, she is a joy to be around.  
  • afterwards, my friend christina and i met up to spend the afternoon together.  we ate lunch, made a pit stop by some thrift shops and then had headed downtown for the best cold brew in town.  we walked around for a while sipping on our yummy coffee.  it was so great to spend some time with her just catching up and encouraging one another. 

the entire day was such a reminder how much i love my city and the people in it.  husband and i are so blessed!

  5. Hello! Thanks for stopping by my blog this morning...

    I'm already in love with your nursery! And... I'm jealous of your "debt free -ness". (I just made up a word) ;-)

    Have a great weekend! Nicky

  9. They've done Financial Peace at our church too - I have heard amazing things about it! I love Dave Ramsey. Congrats for being well on your way!
    Your crib turned out beautiful! I can't wait to see what you do with the changing table :)

  10. Stopping by from Life.Rearranged. I guess everyone already said it, but that yellow is beautiful. Looking forward to seeing the changing table. Have a great week. xo

  11. Love the color you painted the crib. I have seen a lot of bloggers with new babies repainting older cribs. So cool!

  12. me again... I just read your comments... and it all sounds soo familiar. :-)

    I wanted you to know that my insurance covered all but $400 of my surgery... I was happily surprised. I thought it would be much more... which is one of the reasons I waited so long.

    AND... I also wanted to pass on that I know women that had b. reduction and still went on to have more children and breast feed. I however, didn't realize that was even an option... which is why I waited too... but after consulting my doctor I found out that there is a high percentage of woman that still can breastfeed. Although... like you... I would be worried that I everything "would grow back" after the breastfeeding! LOL It seemed I got bigger in the bust with each child... UGH.

    Anyways... enough boob talk! I just wanted you to know the "facts" because I was wasn't fully informed before I made my decision. If I knew that it would be covered by insurance... I would of done it 3 years ago after my 3rd child. And might of considered it even before that?

    Have a great Friday! Nicky

  13. Just found your blog via Lauren's link up... Love the nursery and CONGRATS!
