"The Broken Beautiful"

(by Ellie Holcomb)



Wow, y'all, I think this is the longest I've gone with posting in all of my time with this little blog. I keep meaning to post something, but I never seem to have the time. I still have a post or two about India in the works, and I haven't told y'all about LA or ABQ. Man, I'm a slacker! Maybe I'll have a little more time in the summer?! We'll see...

I was going to make this one of those posts (that Brooke likes) where I try to make up for my lack of blogging with a bunch of pictures! But I've done a few things with no pictorial evidence that are totally worth mentioning (for my sake, at the very least)...

I had brunch with Laura one day, and it was so nice to catch up with her! We have both been working more and haven't been able to get together like we used to. Sadly, that's the case with a lot of my friends these days :(

I attended a baby shower for Lance & Melissa! ΓΌ Have I even told y'all that they're having a baby?! Mel found out just after we left for India, and Lance found out in the airport parking lot when we got back...! They have two beautiful girls and will be welcoming a little boy into the mix by the end of summer! :)

We went to a crawfish boil at our friends' Daniel & Maria's last Sunday afternoon! They invited my family & our friend John over, and we had so much fun! I failed to take any pictures, but I managed to capture some video of a dancing doodlebug! Lame, I know, but we were quite entertained for awhile...


Yes, I know, that's two minutes of your life that you'll never get back! On to other things...

Though I'm a little behind on this, I didn't get a chance to tell y'all about Mother's Day!!




Cody gave me flowers & chocolate {that he bought with his own money!}


Elly gave me a new coffee mug & super cute Turvis :)


They all gave me a bird bath for my garden...

...and made me lunch!

We also went to see my mom & were surprised to find out that my brother and his family were joining us! It was great!

Aside from Mother's Day...

We restored Silvie's headlights {it's exciting around here, I tell ya!}


You'll be glad to know that I have refrained from kicking a certain neighbor dog who keeps digging up our landscaping and downspout extension thingys...

{I wouldn't really kick him, but he does make me angry!}

And on to more exiting things...

I was Kristin's Woman Crush Wednesday! {that sort of thing doesn't happen to me all that often, so I had to tell y'all about it!} :)


My sweet boy was inducted into National Junior Honor Society!




And while we were waiting for the ceremony to start, Elly & I took "Cody selfies" (where we made faces like he does)...


...and we took one normal picture :)


We saw Christopher play bass at a high school choir concert:


I went to Cody's pep rally/awards assembly, where I got to see this awesome tuxedo coat again:

I also got to see Cody, of course! :)



Sigh. I think that about covers the past few weeks! I hope y'all are having a wonderful Memorial Day Weekend! ♥
