Why do you let me stay here all by myself...

Dear Mom, Dad, Nick, Shayna, Owen, Aubrey, Scott, Steph, Wes, and Jan,

I'm sorry. I am probably the worlds worst present wrapper. I will be the first to admit it. However, you're going to just have to deal with it because Lindsey and Ryan's gifts for you will go unwrapped unless I wrap them. Since Lindsey specifically asked me to wrap them, I'm going to make an attempt to do at least half as good of a job as she normally does. Don't expect any fancy bows or tags. Expect too much tape, and too much wrapping paper that is probably crooked and at least partially ripped. Oh..and you're going to have your presents in as few of boxes as possible because we have to get all these presents to fit into Linds' tiny room. Just a little warning. They are pretty awesome gifts though..I'm jealous.

Love always,

Blackbird singing in the dead of night. Take these broken wings and learn to fly...

For the past 3ish days, this little guy has been my best friend. I know I don't even come close to his mom, but until she's out of the hospital, I'm gonna have to do.

Diesel 003

Please pray for my sister Lindsey. Her water broke late Thursday night, and she is only 22 weeks pregnant. One major goal of hers was to make it 48 hours without delivering, and at 11:40 last night, she passed that goal. The next goal is to make it to 23 weeks. That will be on Tuesday. The baby's heartbeat is still really strong, and he's constantly moving, like always. Pray that Evan continues to grow stronger while he's in his momma's belly. Lindsey is on complete bed rest until she goes into labor, which everyone is hoping won't be for at least 4 more weeks. I am unfortunately still way too sick to be around her, so I've been designated as Diesel's babysitter. We mostly just watch movies and nap...two of my favorite things :). I'll try and keep this updated as much as possible as I know that Lindsey and Ryan have friends/family that don't have facebook and want updates on how she's doing. Right now though, we're all just taking things one day at a time.

Give me a Sunday morning full of grace. A simple life and I'll be okay...

I haven't had time to sit down and get everything that's going on in my life out...but it's coming. In the mean time, here is my dream wedding. I'm such a sucker for teal.

Please keep me in your thoughts this week and next as I'm frantically trying to study//pass my LAST FINALS OF UNDERGRAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!
