I've been looking at houses and also apartments. I'm having a hard time deciding whether to rent or buy. I know the market is great right now to buy, so I'm leaning more towards that, but I also might rent for about 6 months just to get everything in order. We'll see!! I'll keep everyone updated! I'm actually going to look at a pretty great house tonight after work. I don't have my hopes up though, because the last two that I did that with were pretty big disappointments. This one seems to have potential. It's pretty large and has 4 bedrooms, but it is a little older. I'm definitely considering getting a roommate or two, so if anyone knows of someone looking for a place to live let me know! (They have to like dogs!! I'll have my two little ones with me!!)
Anyway, other than that I'm just super excited that it's football season! I went to Starkville this past weekend for the big "W" against Southeastern Louisiana, and I'm going back this weekend for Bulldog Bash. Hope to see a bunch of you there! Also, I hope I remember my camera this time, so I may have some pictures to post! Have a great week!!

So, in the meantime, I'm posting pictures from this weekend. One of my best friends, Heather, who is the one selling her house in the post below, is celebrating a birthday this Wednesday! So, this weekend was dedicated to celebrating with her. Beside that, there is no other point to this post. Enjoy!

Anyway, what this means for now is that her cute house in Madison has just gone up for sale. It would be a great opportunity for a young single person, newlyweds or someone older who might be looking to downsize. I'm posting a few pictures below if you or anyone you know might be interested. The house is in Post Oak/North Place subdivision (it is on the edge of both) in Madison and she is asking $137,500. Comment, email or call me if you want more info!
Also, last Friday I took one of my babies, Max, to get his annual shots. His coat has gotten VERY matted up recently, so I asked if they could groom him while he was there. Groom him they did! They said he fought it so much that they had to gas him up and shave his entire little body, even his tail! Poor baby...his hair is just so fine that it has to be this way. They put a little bow in his hair even though he's a boy. I think he looks so cute! I don't know if it was the gas, or just the fact that I "saved" him from the vet that afternoon, but he was loving and kissing all over me on the ride home! What a sweet baby!

This is what I found at my front door last night when I got home. I absolutely LOVE getting mail, so you can imagine my joy when I received not just mail, but a PACKAGE!!! I was ripping into that thing like a kid at Christmas! My sweet, sweet friend Libby sent me all kinds of great stuff!! I got a Max Lucado book, Traveling Light, a devotional book, Russell Stover chocolates, awesome smelling and relaxing lotion and candle, a cute OPI nail polish and some note cards. She knew just what all I needed to cheer me up! Thank you so much, Libs! You're the best! It really made my day, and probably my week! I wish I was the kind of friend that was thoughtful enough to do this kind of thing. Not that I don't love my friends, but this is above and beyond. I'm going to try to be more like this!
Hope everyone has a great rest of the week and that everyone receivies something that brings them joy!

On Saturday we took the boat out with another couple to Ship Island. Poor Paul got stung by a jellyfish, so we didn't stay where most of the people were, but we went on around to a more secluded part of the island where it was actually nicer water and no jellyfish. To say my back is sunburned is doing an injustice to what the sun can actually do. I will probably have skin cancer just from that one day out on the boat. Nice. Here comes the peeling!
Hope everyone has a great week! My car is still for sale.....

I am so fortunate to have the best friends and family by my side. I want to thank everyone for all of the love and support I have felt recently. I know that the Lord has placed each of you in my life for a reason, and you have certainly fulfulled it! Thank you, thank you, thank you! You all continue to be my rocks, and I am not sure where I would be without each and every one of you. Every email, phone call and visit has not gone unnoticed...I cherish each little thing that you do for me, and I hope that I have been and will be that kind of friend to you as well.
I think that there is probably a song out there that could fit almost every moment or situation in life. Right now, the song that fits my life best is Rascal Flatts "I'm Moving On". No, not every lyric means exactly what they probably meant it to mean to me, but if I think about it long enough each line carries some significance as to my current situation. My favorite line is the one in bold "At last I can see life has been patiently waiting for me." For a little insight into my life right now, read the lyrics below!
I'm Movin' On by Rascal Flatts:
I've dealt with my ghosts and I've faced all my demons
Finally content with a past I regret
I've found you find strength in your moments of weakness
For once I'm at peace with myself
I've been burdened with blame, trapped in the past for too long
I'm movin' on
I've lived in this place and I know all the faces
Each one is different but they're always the same
They mean me no harm but it's time that I face it
They'll never allow me to change
But I never dreamed home would end up where I don't belong
I'm movin' on
I'm movin' on
At last I can see life has been patiently waiting for me
And I know there's no guarantees, but I'm not alone
There comes a time in everyone's life
When all you can see are the years passing by
And I have made up my mind that those days are gone
I sold what I could and packed what I couldn't
Stopped to fill up on my way out of town
I've loved like I should but lived like I shouldn't
I had to lose everything to find out
Maybe forgiveness will find me somewhere down this road
I'm movin' on
