in sync

so yesterday i was so tickled to have a real life phone conversation with tara!
i declare, this world is truly is a small one.
to think 19 years ago, while pregnant with savannah,
gregg & i attended a church pastored by andy stanley.
& now, savannah is attending one of (andy's) northpoint community's locations
in athens
where tara & hubby live
where tara's hubby works!!
i mean seriously what a small world!

i'll be the first to admit, i spend a little too much time on facebook.
gosh that's painful to admit
but there it is
& today thought i'd sync things up a little between my fb account & the blog.

most mornings i do pull up smk's page & check out all her cute photos.
no i don't stalk every conversation but i love to see her in all her glory, especially on game day.
(hoping i don't get an early morning text telling me something along the lines of, that's so creepy that you downloaded my photos.)
go dawgs! 

while i was on the phone with cutiepie tara,
another call came in...
turns out little bit had missed the bus.
& fear not, she only waited about 3 minutes for my callback.
but anyway, we're riding along & she tells me...
"mama, i've been asked out three times this week, by three different boys"
insert rolling eyes here. her's. not mine.
"but don't worry. i told the last one....walk away buddy, just walk away"
there were hand motions. it was hysterical. hysterical i tell ya!

recently had this little visitor hanging out in the family room with me.
& i will tell you, i did make an attempt to send him back outdoors.
on my own.
but he sorta creeped me out scurrying so quickly.
couldn't get a single one of my girls to help the cause...
thankful for husbands who do insect control.

have you died & gone to heaven
with one of these in your hand yet? 

& before you go & judge me.
i do order it nonfat, decaf, 1 shot, no whip & light on the mocha
it still tastes great!

so proud of madison &
her two recent personal biggie accomplishments!!
atta girl!


& finally
wanted to share some specials with you over at Tiny Prints
who is currently running various new bundle specials available for you!
these offers will change weekly for you & give you savings up to 35%

& for you brides, Tiny Prints is also offering a special free bridesmaids card for you too!
"like" the page & that will give you the promo
if you note "send it to me first" option you will receive your free card!

the plan is to shut down facebook for the rest of the day.
baby steps.

SMK's comment above is too sweet!
I just posted about a praying mantis last night except ours was outside thankfully, I had never seen one so big. I've been wanting to try that Starbucks drink but am having a hard time drinking coffee in our 90 degree heat! Can't wait for cooler weather :)
Little bit is so funny telling that boy to "just walk away", hopefully she keeps that up until she is in college ;)
Have a great day!

That FB can be addicting - I have gone cold turkey - NO FB at all. I know! I know!
The girls are so so pretty!
Have a pretty day!
