Six Degrees from anyone in Columbia.....

So many things to post....FIRST....Erin over at Blue-Eyed Bride and I have been exchanging emails for a while now. I am such a faithful follower of hers and she has the cutest blog!! She is such a daily inspiration to me- in blog world and in the real world. We both realized that we live in the same town, and are both in the Junior League. We have also vowed to get together for some play dates when our babies get a little older. Her precious Hudson is 4 days younger than Bug and I would love nothing more than my angel to meet a wonderful Southern gentleman! WELL, last night when I was at our Kickoff Junior League meeting, this beautiful, bright eyed girl walked up to me, and I immediately knew who she was!!!!! It was my blog friend!!! I couldn't believe we were meeting like this! All I could do was hug her!! She was even cuter in person!! I am so happy we have now met and I look forward to many more times!
This brings me to a quick thought, and I promise, it will be quick....I started this blog as a way of reaching out to the masses of family members to keep up with my pregnancy. It suddenly became so much more for me and I ran with it and have never looked back. I have "met" so many wonderful women and made so many friends. Erin, for example, is a wonderful example of a Godly woman, and she inspired Raymond and myself to find a church where we would not only walk in and walk out of a service, but find a Sunday school class that we love and can grow in. She and her husband have a wonderful balance going on. I read so many women's blogs everyday and sometimes I am in tears reading someoneelse's situation and realizing how small my problems are, and sometimes I find myself laughing hysterically at how similar my life and rants are to's such a small world. I enourage all of you to pray with and pray for, commune with and uplift, all of the women that you encounter. Kelly over at Kelly's Korner constantly reminds all of us mamas and women to build each other up and support each other in all that we do. There is too much judgment in all other aspects of out lives that we need to unite in this.....okay, enough!!
I do want to leave you with a few images. Tonight is my husband's dream night, his three favorite girls and the beginning of college football season!!!! Other than fried green tomatoes (and okra), grits, bourbon and horse racing, college football is something that a Southern lady MUST love and follow!!! Tonight the Gamecocks faceoff agains the Wolfpack!!! Go USC!!!

Today more than ever I missed my little one and so tonight I literally held her in my arms from the moment I picked her up from nursery until she went to bed- I just didn't want to miss a moment. Neither did Tellie, as you can see below.......... This picture is from this morning when Georgia was obviously ready for her feeding- and if you know Raymond, this picture is so appropriate- he LOVES to mess with his girls!! He is forever a teaser and it gets on my everloving last nerve sometimes....I am sure Georgia will come to get just as aggravated as her mama!!!! I think she thought his big ole' nose was her bottle!!!! Love it....
Tonight was so wonderful kicking off SEC football with my family!! It's such an exciting time and we look forward to an exciting football season!!! Saturday is the Tigers!! Can't wait!!!! Hope you all have a FABULOUS FRIDAY!!!!!!! Until next time...........


  1. Awww, how great that you and Erin got to meet in real life! I love her blog as well, and Kelly's too. They (and you!) are such great inspirations to me.

    I am so excited there is a Junior League in Murfreesboro and I have already started doing some research. There isn't one here, so I hope I will have an opportunity to join when we get to TN. I may need some tips from you! :-)

    And about those Gamecocks? Have a great weekend!

  2. what a sweet family you have - great blog!

  3. I so agree about the church idea. We have been talking about joining a Sunday School. As soon as we move it will definitely be on our priority list.


what are you observing these days????
