12 Weeks and a farewell to summer

My weekend....

Well most excitingly, there's a little one on the way and I think the whole world knows now.
{thanks social media!}

I'm not planning on taking gads of photos to document how atrociously large I'm sure I'll  be. But maybe a few. Actually, this game is more like "I wonder how long I can fit into this little black dress" which thank the heavens is a bit stretchy.

At this point, I think I just look like I ate one too many burritos.
{which I probably did}



To answer a few of your questions ...

 - Due March 26th, though this baby comes from a long line of procrastinators so I wouldn't be surprised to see the kiddo in April.
 - I've avoided my share of sickness thus far {knock on wood},
 - But I'm a big big fan of naps.
 - I most definitely started bawling during the movie previews this weekend {good grief}.
 - And I looooove Tootsie Roll Pops and Sour Gummies.

We're nervous, anxious, terrified, excited, overjoyed, and overwhelmed. That's a lot of emotion!
Wish us luck!

Back to my weekend ...

Saturday, J.B. and I said our goodbyes to summer.
We went out on the boat for what will probably be the last time this year. {sniff sniff}
But wow, was it ever perfect! 80 degrees, bright sunny sky, slight breeze. We had our picnic lunch on the river, played in the {slightly chilly} water with Denver and spent an hour or two just cruising through the water to run most the gas out of the boat. And I think I've officially gotten my last sunburn of 2011.

When I got home, I took down my spring/summer wreath { h e r e
and replaced it with my fall wreath { h e r e }. 
The changing of the wreaths, a seasonal ceremony at my house, haha.

We watch Alabama beat Penn State in football {Roll Tide}.

Then went to the dollar movies to see Bridesmaids. So so hilarious.

I also made some amazing peach cobbler that I'll have to share later this week. I may or may not be eating it for breakfast right now ...

Sunday, the 10th anniversary of 9-11 was pretty somber. We spent most of the morning watching the speeches and ceremonies at the various crash sites before heading off to church. 
Our pastor gave a sermon about the hope of our nation and I teared up when the entire congregation rose to say the Pledge of Allegiance together. I'll never forget sitting in my high school library that Tuesday morning as the librarian starting wheeling televisions over to us to watch the events unfold. When that second plane crashed in the World Trade Center, I thought my world was going to end. And in a sense, it did.
 Life changed after September 11th, 2001, even if it was just as simple as a new school of thought.

And regardless of what happens in this world, I have faith in a God that is bigger than any human war or act of terrorism. 

"These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage, I have overcome the world.” 
- John 16:33


If that doesn't cheer up your Monday, I just don't know what else will.

  1. Hi Sarah!
    Thanks for your comment on my blog! When I saw it, I came right over. Congratulations on Baby Wilder!
    I was reading your "About" page, and noticed that your husband is from Mississippi...me too. And my husband is actually from Florence, AL. How funny.
