What a week

I promise that I will post pictures of our trip to Chicago as soon as I find time to upload them to the computer and edit them.  However, with the crazy past week we've had, it just hasn't gotten done.  I don't even know where to begin, but here it goes.

-I had been planning a garage sale for last Friday and Saturday in hopes to get rid of things we just don't need anymore--including Makenna's baby clothes.  The garage sale was very successful and we made just under $450!

-Thursday night my mom was here helping get ready for the sale and my brother and sister were supposed to meet at my house for dinner, etc.  When neither one showed up, my mom decided to call my sister, who told us she was one her way to the hospital because my dad was being airlifted there.  Thankfully he is okay now, but let's just say due to some very poor decisions by a doctor from the hospital in my hometown who shall remain nameless he almost didn't make it.  So, needless to say, my days have been spent going to the hospital at least once a day.  This isn't too big of a deal, except I don't want to take Makenna so I have to make sure someone can watch her or go when Justin gets home from work and the floor he is on only has visiting hours 4 times a day.

-Also on Thursday, I got a call from my doctor's office saying that my glucose test back a little high and that I needed to go in for the three hour test.  I did that test this morning and am waiting to hear back from them with the results.

I think that is about all we have to report.  Pictures will be coming soon.

Back to Reality

Justin and I had a wonderful trip to Chicago last week, but now it is back to reality for us.  This morning, Justin headed to work at his new office (he got to miss out on the big move last week while we were on vacation) and I am back to getting things ready for our garage sale this weekend.  If anyone reading this knows of anyone in the Springfield area who is in need of baby girl clothes send them my way because I have TONS to sell.  I also need to clean the garage out, but with the extremely HOT temps. I think I will wait until late in the evenings to do that.

Due to the garage sale preparations, I am not sure when I will have a chance to edit our vacation photos, but I will post them as soon as I do.  I also have photos from my family reunion yesterday to post as well.  Hope everyone has a great week.

Oh Sweet Day of Birth (a day early)

Happy 27th Birthday, Justin!  We love you very much.

Jennifer, Makenna, and Beckham

***For those reading this that are wondering about the title--it is Justin's coined phrase instead of saying Happy Birthday***

4th of July Recap

Here are some pictures from our 4th of July weekend.  We had a fabulous time with friends and family.

We have a pretty low-key week planned.  I am going to try to get more things together for our garage sale in a few weeks and of course, pack and get ready for our Chicago vacation next week.
