{10 Things}


School is out for summer, and I can’t tell you how much I’m enjoying going to bed whenever I want and waking up whenever I want. It’s what I love about summer break the most. I think the bed gets more and more comfortable each and every day.



School isn’t technically out for summer completely. I’m finishing up my graduate degree, which is great in theory. In fact, knowing that I should be finished by the end of this semester thrills me. There is nothing I want more than to not open a college textbook again. This process has been hard since I’ve tried to finish everything in a year’s time. If all goes well, then I will have accomplished this goal by July 24th. Hallelujah! Praise the Lord!

In the mean time, put me on the prayer list….seriously. I’m going to need it. I’m overwhelmed at the moment.



Professional development has been taking place since school has been let out. PD = extra cash. PD = extra stress on grad work. Once again, prayers. I need them.



I’m loving the Bachelorette this season. I’m a Bachelorette junky, and I was delighted in knowing that Emily was coming back to be the Bachelorette. I was crushed when her relationship didn’t work with Brad, but I’m glad it didn’t. If it would have, we wouldn’t be enjoying a terrific season with her and all of these fabulous guys. Arie is one of my top picks right now, but I’m sure some others will come into play.


Looks like we’re building a fence for our new little guy. If you haven’t seen him, then you don’t read the blog. Haha! You would think we were having a kid of our very own with how much I’ve been bragging about him. Lord, help this blog when we do decide to have our own kids.



The boys went bowfishing last night and racked up. My BIL shot a 20 pound catfish that was huge! It’s hard for me to believe that I swim in the same river that these guys are hanging out in. Ugh! I’m just glad they keep to themselves and out of sight. That’s the good thing about swimming in a river that isn’t more than knee high during the summer.



I woke up this morning thinking I had professional development only to get to the school and realize that it wasn’t until tomorrow. Geez! What luck! Clearly, I was a tad bit tired and unorganized in that matter. If you looked at my iPad calendar, you would think the opposite, but somehow those dates got mixed up, and I lost out on several hours of sleep that I could have desperately used after waiting on the boys to get back safely.


Does anyone around the Brewton area know of an upholsterer that can do a decent job? I bought a rocking chair that needs some new fabric and to be re-puffed. I’m trying to pick out some fabric, but I’m going to need someone to do the work. I’ve heard of a company in Mobile, but I’d like to find someone a little closer. Any suggestions out there?


Snickerdoodle cookies from the deli have been my dessert of choice lately. Go get you some and see if you agree!


And….last but not least….Colby and I are on the lookout for some land. We would like something around the Brewton city limits. I’m still up in the air of whether we want to buy or build one day, but we’re just praying that the Lord will provide with the perfect option for us. I know if we put our trust in Him that He will provide, but I’m not going to lie and say that it’s easy to just stand back and wait things out.

So, that’s my ten things! What’s going on with you?
