The beginning of my last semester...

Well, I have officially finished my first week of my last semester. I am so ready to be through with school, I can't even stand it!! It's going to be a tough semester to get through. My schedule is pretty good at least. I only go Monday - Thursday and it leaves plenty of time to work in between classes. The worst part... no more lunches with Jason. Jason and I have been pretty spoiled and we eat together almost everyday. Well, that is stopping now apparently. The way my schedule is, I am always at work on Jason's lunch hour. Oh well! 

I don't have much more to say. Except that I get to go spend the weekend in Oklahoma on the 5th and I cannot wait! We get to see Ty's first soccer game! I'm sure there will be plenty of pictures for me to post then.

Just an update!!

Well, first I guess I will talk to you about my business meeting! I was so nervous because I knew that this PR firm was very successful. I had this image in my head of all these established older people that I was going to be meeting with. I mean her name was Marie!! I showed up to meet 4 girls and 1 guy in their 20s!!! Such relief. It was a little of a scattered meeting at first but it turned out really nice. We went to eat and did most of our talking over lunch so it was very relaxing. I think this is going to be such a great experience and I can't wait to get started!! 

I decided to stay in Fort Worth for a couple of extra days and thank goodness I did!! At 3 AM on Saturday morning. Jen called my mom and said she was in labor!! We have made it for 2 of the 3 boys' births and I was dying to make it for Lainey! Guess what?!?! WE DID! Celice, mom, and I got to be in the room for Lainey's birth! There was one person who didn't make it in time for her birth... the DOCTOR!! The nurses delivered the baby and Jen never even pushed. Lainey was just ready and wasn't waiting for any doctor to decide to show up. That's my girl! Well she was born at 8:10 AM on August 16th. She weighed 6 lbs and was only 17 1/2 inches long...just a little girl! She is absolutely beautiful. I was so sad to leave Oklahoma this time. I just didn't get enough time with all my nieces and nephews. Reagan, Ty, and Audrey are just getting so old that they don't even care if you are around. That is just so sad. Bryce was a different story this time though! He was my little buddy. I took a nap with him and man does that make you want kids. He just cuddled and loved on me the whole time. I love kids especially Reagan, Ty, Audrey, Bryce, and Lainey!! I really wish that Tim and Melaina and Jen and Josh would make a trip to Abilene so Jason and I could have some alone time with all of them. Not at the same time of course, we can't handle that yet!! I will end this post with some great pictures!!

Just a GREAT weekend

So this weekend was just a great weekend! First, Kayla came to see me! She came in on Friday afternoon and we just sat and talked and caught up with each other. We were so use to seeing each other every day and now it's like maybe once a month....NOT OK! It was so nice just to be with her. She is such an amazing friend that I have been blessed by for the last 11+ years! Then we went to eat and have a couple of drinks at Lytle, Kayla's old stomping grounds! On Saturday morning we got up and went on a walk around ACU. It was so nice! I'm going to get to see her again this week and I absolutely CANNOT wait!!

Soon after she left, I went on a shopping spree for my little Lainey bug! She isn't here yet but let me tell you...when she gets here she is going to be one stylin' baby! The rest of the night I spent with Jason just having a relaxing evening. Sunday was fun-filled. First church, then lunch at Lytle, then shopping with Kara and her little sister, bowling with our husbands, and then cooking out at the Barbees! It was such a nice day. I always love being married to Jason but after this weekend, I think I love it even more!

Well, 3 more days until my big business meeting (Don't I sound so adult?) I'll let you know how it goes!

Just a good day!!

Today was a pretty good day. I took my final for my last summer class ever!! It feels so great to be so close. I only have 4 months until I am finally done with college. I feel like I've been at this forever. Now I have 2 weeks to just work and not have to worry about school at all.

Then Jen called to tell me that she is dilated to a 3 and 30% effaced. Little Lainey girl could be here any day!! I am so excited to see her. It seems like Jen has been pregnant forever. I am a little nervous about this one though. I am in Abilene now so I'm further away from Oklahoma City. I have been there for all of her births and I don't want this one to be any different. I really want to be in the room again! That was so exciting. I am living vicariously through all my friends and family because Jason and I probably won't have kids for a while.

Now finally for the clincher.... I am now PR/Development for New Horizons. I officially start on September 1st. I will only be part-time until a graduate but that's a good thing! See the deal with this new position is just's a brand new position. New Horizons has never had this position until now. My executive director, Michael, said to me "Create your dream job." Oh my gosh!! That is so exciting and incredibly scary all at the same time. Does he not realize that I am 22 and never had experience doing this type of thing?!?! Well, he obviously sees something in me that I don't quite see yet and I am so grateful that God has blessed me with whatever it is that Michael thinks I have. This is going to sound dumb but one of the most exciting parts about the job is that I get my first company phone and an office with windows!!! I have been planning how I will decorate since way before I accepted the position. By the way....I could use some help. Suggestions gladly accepted!

Well, I guess that's it for now...who knows, next time I blog it might be about my new niece, Lainey Jean Foster!!

My Blogging Virginity

Ok! So I have decided to give this blogging thing a shot. I said I would wait until I had kids so that I might actually have something to talk about but maybe I'll be surprised! I'm not promising to write every day but I am hoping to be better than Jen and Josh (that's right I'm calling y'all out!!)

So far it seems like this might not be a good experience. I'm not sure how everyone makes their blogs look so creative but I will work on it. Going through all the different settings just made me realize that I have no idea how to do this!! We shall see. That's going to be it for my first post but hopefully there will be better ones coming soon!
