Okay, so lately has been BUSY. Soon after we returned from IL in July, I headed back in August for one my dearest friend's weddings! It was so fun and I loved being able to celebrate the love that her and Mitch have found. Us bridesmaids would laugh and say that Megan has the best friends because we all got along so well and became instant friends. Megan was absolutely stunning and the love that radiated from her heart was glowing on her face for her groom. It was a gorgeous outdoor wedding on a perfect august evening. I could go on and on, it was so much fun. I even got to wear fake eye-lashes!! Here's some memories from the weekend:
She is radiant!!!
Soon to be Mr. & Mrs!!!!!!
lovin on the baby!!
The guys made quick friends with each other! They were all so much fun!
We came back and hit the ground running with things to catch up on and prep for future. We are starting to go through Dave Ramsey Cd's and re=figuring our budget with the newest addition :). We have also started the process of researching baby gear and starting a registry- it's so fun and yet so overwhelming at the same time. One thing that keeps me grounded is something that my sister-in-law told me, that we just need to trust God with our baby- that this stuff is all good- but ultimately our trust needs to be in God. It's been a good re-focuser for me. And, thankfully, have a very logically minded husband who brings me back down to earth when I get these crazy "we need this" or "we could do this" ideas.
We've also had a busy couple weeks getting ready for a PATH decorating day that took place this past weekend. This is one of the final steps before it can open. Different bible studies were given the option to adopt a room. My bible study adopted-a-room and we picked the bathroom to decorate. Everyone donated supplies or money and the room came together so great!! I was so excited that my parents were able to help out because they've heard so much about PATH, it was so neat to include them! We feel so privileged to be a part of this ministry and to watch God at work.
Here's some finished product pics:
I must say I am SO ready for some fall weather. We've had a couple teaser days that it's been in the 80's, but usually 90's or more lately. I just have the fall itch and am excited for that fresh, crisp air! Blame in on the pregnancy but I couldn't wait to break out the pumpkin recipes, especially since my dad- who loves pumpkin- was here. This weekend I made some pumpkin snicker doodles and some pumpkin donut muffins :)...helped fix that fall need a bit!
