Hey Stranger!

Hey Strangers!  I feel like I say this SO much - but I have been neglecting this blog.  It has been a crazy past couple weeks - many girls nights, church events, and a busy work schedule to name a few.  I promise in the weeks to come I will update more. 

The March for Babies walk was great on Sunday - well the weather wasn't but at least it didn't rain!!  We had a great turnout again this year and we raised over $1200 dollars!!!  I am so thrilled that we raised over our goal of $1000 - it is such a wonderful cause that is so important not only to us, but many who we have met throughout our journey of losing Emma.  Here are a couple pictures from the day - I didn't get many because I am a wimp in the cold - and our group picture was last minute and some had already left. 

Jenny, Nikki (my younger sister), Katie, and Justin 
 If you cant read this it says "One day every baby born will be..." and the next sign said "on time" but I got to chatting with someone and forgot to take that next picture!  Oops! 
Destinee and Tonya, Josh, Chad & Dave - and yes, that would be my husband making a weird face - he isn't into pictures while walking I guess!

Part of our group right before we all headed home - I just realized that I am covering Tonya - sorry Ton!  Not everyone who walked was here still - so add about 8 more and that was our team this year!  Thank you to all of you who supported us and walked in honor of Emma and anyone else who has lost a baby, or those who were born early and are doing well today, thanks to all of the work and research the March of Dimes does! 

Well I am off to bed - in my devotional tonight I read this verse -

My presence shall go with you, and I will give you rest.  Exodus 33:14

What a wonderful reminder.

Heart Strings

The Last Song was great! I have read the book and the main parts followed through into the movie which was so important! If you haven’t read the book or seen the movie you really should! If you like that type of book that is...I think Nicholas Sparks is a wonderful writer and completely knows how to tug at our heart strings. I was balling in the movie and I think I cried more in the book! It is a great story and if you don’t mind Miley then I think you would enjoy the movie! I am a total romantic sap though, so if you’re not that type then I won’t guarantee anything. You will have to let me know what you think if you go!

I am looking forward to the weekend, I feel like this week has just gone on and on! I feel like it should already be Saturday afternoon rather than Friday morning (when I wrote this). But I am thankful it is Friday finally!

On Wednesday I was excited to go out to dinner with my support group girls to Don Pablo’s!
There weren’t many of us but I definitely enjoyed myself! We laughed & shared stories and like any bereaved moms would do we talked about our babies. Our precious babies that we miss so much there are no words to describe. I love getting together with those that just “get you”. It was great seeing you Krista, Heidi & Tanya! We will have to do it again soon and hopefully others can make it! Plus I am thrilled because I think we are going to have an even bigger group for the March for Babies walk on Sunday April 25! I am praying for GREAT weather!

Have a wonderful weekend everyone – I am hoping to enjoy some quality time with my wonderful husband who is DONE with “busy season” (in the language for those accountant families out there)! I must confess that I will miss watching “my” shows on Saturday when he was gone…but lets be honest – I will definitely find time to watch here and there! When it is nice out though the DVR tends to fill up way more than in the winter! Bring on summer!!!!!

The Last Song

Today I am going to see The Last Song!!!  One of my best friends Tonya and I decided a week or 2 ago that we really wanted to see this movie!  So on Sunday I went and purchased the book my Nicholas Sparks and I finished it in 2 days!!  The book was so great, I just loved it.  It makes me even more excited to see it! 
Oh how I am hopeless romantic and a total sap for these types of things!  I really hope the movie is like the book! 

Enjoy the rest of your week!
