Random Update


Are you ready for a random update?
Good!

* Carter is about to lose his other front tooth.
Is there anything cuter than when they're missing both their front teeth?
Sweet boy.

* Austin attended a"lock-in" this past weekend called
FREEDOM
It's a huge event here organized by the Prosper campus of Prestonwood Baptist church.
He stayed with 20 of his friends at host family's house all weekend and had an absolute blast.
Needless to say, Austin came home Sunday exhausted.
I'm proud of that kid.
I cannot believe how quickly he's growing up.
He's made some good changes as of late.

* My beautiful mother turned 65 recently,
and my father planned a special family birthday party for her.
Picture Mexican food catered from their favorite spot,
margaritas and what else?
A Mariachi band of course!
How cool is this:

                   
My mother loves this Mariachi band, and my parents often go listen to them.
She was on cloud nine having them in her own living room.
I loved watching her so happy.

* I have been coveting the lamp, below on the left, from Pottery Barn for a very long time:

 
I told Ryan about them awhile back,
and guess what he gave me for Valentine's Day?
Yep.
My man surprised me with 2 of these bad boys.
I am ecstatic to say the least!
I really want to lighten up our decor,
and these lamps and seagrass rug for the family room are a good start.
Since we're just renting,
we have no idea what the layout of our home will eventually be,
so I'm focusing on things that can work in any house.
Speaking of houses, our lease is up in May,
and after LOTS of discussion and weighing all options,
we've decided we'll have to wait one more year.
I know.
Another year.
On a positive note, our plan is fool proof, and with the steps we've taken,
we will, without a doubt, be homeowners in May of 2013.
I said it.
It's true.
It's actually pretty exciting because we have time to find the perfect home.

* So, I'm turning 38 this weekend.
38.
Only 2 more years.

On that note,
Have a fabulous weekend, friends!!!

Love the lamps! I need help...you need to come over and help me figure out what to do with my bedroom!! And drink

I, too, have wanted that lamp but since my hubs doesn't take clues I did not receive them for Vday or any other day. Did the other folks stay in your old home another year also? Wish our leasers would stay. I hate that stress of 2 mortgages while you wait for another family
