no pictures please!

just had to share this shirt that i got for laykin... it is so PERFECT! love it!!!also. school is going well. we are just about finished with the first week. it has
been better than i had anticipated. yay.


i got tagged by jess. i have to write 6 random things about me
and tag 6 people. i know you are all gonna love this... i tag jaren,
AC, elizabeth, crystal c. , heather kathleen and jeanna. (rules below)

ok... let me see if i can think of 6 things... hmmm. this could be hard.

1) i get a vanilla iced coffee from mc d's every single morning... i am

2) i love people magazine or any other trashy gossip mags... they
complete me : )

3) my favorite author is vc andrews. she is (was) amazing. i don't
usually have a lot of time for reading... maybe i can do that in the
car loading line while waiting for an hour to pick up my daughter... ;)

4) i would wear flip flops everyday if possible.

5) i hate fixing my hair and putting make-up on everyday...
i wish i could pay one of my great hair stylist friends to do it for me...
oh how i wish i were independently wealthy.

6) i love the movie theater... i would go everyday if i could... if there
were good movies and it were free : ) heehee

wow... that took long enough. its hard to think of things about yourself
for some reason.

Here are the rules:1. Link to the person who tagged you2. Post the
rules to your blog3. Write 6 random things about myself4. Tag 6
people at the end of your post and link to them5. Let each person

sunday was my birthday and the day before school started, so i just
wanted to go somewhere that we could all enjoy each other and the
awesome weather we had. so we went to a really cool place near
gainesville called ROCKBRIDGE. if you have never been check it out...
you can rent houses, they have a really great restaurant and way way way
cool little open air bar in an old mill overlooking the river. it's really a
great place and sorta close to home.
along the way... you can stop by the swinging bridge.

and check out this super clear beautiful creek.

then you get to rockbridge...

the mill.
lights in the mill. heehee. i snuck a couple of kevin in... he doesnt like me to take his picture.

check it out and let me know whatcha think.

i'm a big kid now.

but mom's not : )
so, today was laykins very first day of school. it was sad,
exciting and everything else. she was so brave though and
got out of the car and walked into the building all by herself.
we were SO proud of her. it was the lllooonnngggessstttt day
for us though. wondering... is she ok, is she scared,
did she open up and make a friend???? kevin and i were so
glad when it was time to go get her. she just hopped in
the car and began telling us about her day. she LOVES her
teacher, so that is so great... and she made a few friends.
so, i survived. and so did she...

before we left, she let me snap a couple pics.

and then we took her to dairy queen when we picked her up to get her a treat.
she enjoyed it while my dad was asking her about her day...

spreading wings...

well friends, the time has come... i honestly dont know where
the time has gone! i know, that's what everyone says... but it
just goes by soooo fast. and this is just the beginning. today
was they day that laykin got to meet her teacher and
take her supplies. it is so real when you walk into that classroom
and her name is on stuff. you then realize, or i did, that this is for real...
they are actually planning on her coming. she had a cubby, a clothespin,
her bday was on the calender.
wow... it is so crazy b/c i remember my first day. i was terrified!
my mom lied to me! haha... she was gonna go to the cafeteria
and "fill out papers" : ) love ya mom.
and now its like dejahvoo. but worse b/c now i know that shes
gonna be mortified and thats way worse than it being me...
so, i know that its really not gonna be THATbad, but it sure as
heck seems like it is. : (
anyway... before we left today, we took a few pics...
