The Best Date Ever

Bubba and I have been INSANELY busy the past month or so. Doing what? I am not even sure. It just seems like we have been running and doing and being tired. This is so interesting so far, I am boring myself. Anyways, Bubba asked me on Wednesday if I wanted to go on a date. I immediately screamed YES!! Followed by what I wanted to do exactly.  

My grand plans? Cleaning our bedroom. I told him I wanted our date to be tag-team cleaning the abyss that is our bedroom. I am not proud of the way it had become. I will blame being busy, but really I think I just was practicing my great skill of avoidance. Here is the deal. I somehow can always maintain a clean house, bathrooms, kitchen, living room, no problem.  My car and bedroom... now those will be the death of me. I am not sure what it is, but it is what it is.

Well, we had a fun time cleaning and watching tv and chatting while we cleaned. And now, I am one happy mama! It definitely goes to show that you know you found your match when joint cleaning the house cannot only be fun, but the perfect night. I sure do love my Bubba.

It's a.....

We went to the doctor today and got a great report about Baby Garrott. This of course is the best news. We are so grateful for a healthy baby and pregnancy thus far. BUT, the icing on the cake is that we got to learn what little Baby Garrott was... you know girl or boy. And...

Lea Anderson Garrott, III 

We are beyond excited and cannot wait to meet the little guy. Thank you so much for all your prayers and keep 'em coming! 

The Cowboy Rides Away

This weekend was one for the record books. We went to see George Strait (and Martina McBride) on his last tour. To say it was fun was an understatement.  The weather in NOLA was fantastic, the food was to die for, and the concert was one I will never forget. It was a total blast, and we had a great time hanging out with Rebecca and Will all weekend. You just can't get any better than George. He is so adorable in real life. The perfect cowboy. 


His last wave goodbye to the crowd. I was sorta emotional.

My Bubba

And my heart is sinking like a setting sun, 
Setting on the things I wish I'd done. 
Oh the last goodbye's the hardest one to say, 
And this is where the cowboy rides away. 

Oh the last goodbye's the hardest one to say. 
This is where the cowboy rides away

An Update of Sorts

Over the past few weeks, we have gotten to spend some very fun time with a lot of our favorite people. Last weekend especially crammed a lot of great friends and family into 3 days. I certainly was happy about that! Friday night we ate pizza with friends and laughed and laughed. It was a fun night. One of the topics that was so hilarious was Susan's near death car incident. She really did have a bad go and hydro plane, but listening to her relay how she got back on the road was about the best thing I have ever heard. It is times like this that make me so glad to have friends that require no fancy plans simply pizza and each other. And maybe a story about near death and the Jeep making it to ride another day.

You can't get better than this one for a friend
Before everyone came over, I did get to have a great date with this little fella! So fun. So happy. Walker is my buddy.

Saturday, we celebrated Elliott's 2nd Birthday! She is SUCH a fun little girl. I think spitfire is a good description. She may be tiny, but the girl has a personality that is 100x bigger than she is ever going to be. We had a blast eating cake and playing. The weather was perfect! We love you Cake! Somehow, I didn't manage to take a picture of the birthday girl because I was having too much fun. These are two of my favorites though.

Sunday, we went over to Monroe to see my family and my aunt who was in town. We always have a blast there! It was great seeing everyone, eating crawfish, and sitting in the yard. All of my favorite activities. I could be a professional visitor and eater. That is a bad combo.

This is a terrible picture of me but I don't get to see Abby enough to be picky.

Can't beat a sunset at my parent's house.

Lastly, Baby and I are doing well. We go again on Monday to check on things. Pregnancy is so weird because you can control so very little of it. I guess it prepares you for being a parent of a child that thinks and acts for itself. For record keeping purposes ONLY... here is a bump shot at 15 weeks. Lord. I am gonna be a big lady. But, I suppose it is all worth it. Let's just pray I don't have a 15 pounder like that lady in England.

Can't wait for this weekend! Hope its a great one for you!
