Bad, bad blogger

Yikes! It’s been so long since I last updated. Life has just out of control lately. Cole took the bar, bought a car, and then spent a week at the beach with his entire family. I got to spend a couple of days at the beach with them (which was lovely), and then came back to Birmingham to see my sisters.

Mary Alice and Sara spent the weekend here, and it was so nice to see them. I’m so glad that we’ve become friends and that we genuinely like each other. Growing up, we had some rough times together, but Mary Alice is nicer now so all is well. (Just kidding, Mary Alice…mostly!)

Our TV was delivered Sunday morning which caused a bit of drama. You can read Mary Alice’s version of the story on her blog here. It was a shocking and hilarious way to begin the day. We had lunch, and then sadly they had to get on the road.

Miles came over to help Cole hang our mirror and to get our TV hooked up. Cole loved getting to finally watch his new TV, and I was glad our mirror was on the wall.

Monday night we had Liz and Allen over for a farewell dinner. Of course I forgot to take pictures, so I have nothing to show. They brought their adorable daughter over. She is the tiniest thing ever. She is almost a month old, and she still weighs less than Baby Miles did when he was born. Anyway, we had a lovely time together, and it made me even sadder that they’re leaving Thursday. Ugh. I’m trying to tell myself that it just means Cole and I will have a good excuse to visit DC.

This week will hopefully be filled with getting organized. Our living room is shaping up pretty nicely, but the rest of the house is struggling. I know, I know…it takes time. BUT, time isn’t going to unpack all the stuff in the “miscellaneous room.” I’m just going to have to get my hands dirty and deal with it. This could get ugly…

Haha! Miscellaneous room is the nice name for it! It makes it sound sooo much better than it looks.

I love it Anna! And you're a fabulous blogger - when you remember us! :-) I've been AWOL for a little bit too. Don't worry. I hope you're doing well!
