It's been a while...

I know it has been a long time since my last post, but I think I have some pretty good excuses! Here’s what’s happened over the past several weeks in a nutshell…

Matt and Elise came to visit us and they were able to celebrate Joe’s birthday and Owen’s half (6 month) birthday with us! It was great hanging out with them!!

We spent the weekend after that watching the Tomlinson kidos! We had a blast! I think the kids actually enjoyed Roxy’s company more than me and Joe! Oh well!

The following Monday we closed on our new house! That entire week was devoted to moving all of our stuff from the apartment and the storage unit. Of course Joe wanted to save money by not hiring movers (I’m sure no one is surprised by this) so he enlisted Jason to help out. We could not have done it without the help from Jason and Beverly! Beverly was so sweet and brought us lunch on “move in day” and she kept Owen for a little bit so he could get in a good nap (since there were painters in every room of the house). Thanks Tomlinsons!

For the Labor Day weekend we took a trip to GA and TN. The main focus for this trip was for Joe to get to see his family (since I will be traveling to see my family at the end of the month). Owen had fun spending quality time with his Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, and Cousin Bennett. We also had a chance to spend a little bit of time with the Brewtons!

We’re now back home and looking forward to unpacking more boxes and putting stuff on the walls. We are far from settled but we do have all of the essentials where they belong and new paint on all the walls (thanks for the help momma and daddy). It’s simply a house now, but once we add our personal touches I believe it will feel more like our home.


  1. Congrats on the new house! Hope all is well with you all.... what a precious little family! Owen is growing up so fast!

  2. Thank you! You and Brady will have to visit sometime! Is he on track to be on time? Early?
