Oh, sweet blog. You are the first thing to get neglected when life gets busy. And I think that's ok. Better that I not blog than not shower. Am I right?
We've had our fair share of unexpected house-related emergencies this past month. You know- the kind that make you cringe to pay for but so grateful that you have an emergency fund to pull from. First we had to take down a bunch of trees that were dying because we live on a very wooded lot and tend to get very windy, sometimes tornadic, weather this time of year. And then came the doozie- having to replace 25 feet of underground plumbing pipe. We could have waited, but we were essentially playing Russian roulette with outgoing sewage. NO thank you. I can't even tell you the amount of crap-related puns we've used in our conversation these past few weeks. Our house is going to crap. The *^#* just hit the fan/I mean yard/I mean our bank account. We have no shame. I also told the plumber I would need him to sit down and explain to my children why they couldn't go to college. He did not find me nearly as funny as I did.

Anywhoo---In good news, April brings the celebration of our sweet angel's fourth birthday!! Don't even ask me how that is possible. She's also making her society debut as a flower girl in a wedding on Saturday. And Davis is wearing a blue gingham tie. I am already dying from the anticipated cuteness. Dying.
Also worth noting- I am now fully reliant on my iPhone for any family pictures, I am obsessed with Instagram and the new Hazelnut latte from Starbucks, oh, and one more little thing---I finally get to meet my little God-given miracle niece Greer Elizabeth on Thursday!!
It's an incredible gift to watch your best friends become mothers when you're already in on the secret of how wonderful it is. You can't explain it to them, but you know how much their life is about to change and how absolutely incredible it's about to become. It's truly such a blessing.
Ok. Brain dump complete. Wishing you all a wonderful week!
