the 'goings on'...

Well, we have been quite the busy bees agaon...but it's been a lot of fun. This past weekend, I went to church to help cook a meal for the college students with my friends and it was a lot of fun. Kennady got passed around to about 15 different people (or more) throughout the evening and spread her smiles and happiness with everyone. It was a great time....then she got a major de-germing rub-down. So what, mommy is paranoid. :) We went back to the church Monday night also to help out with a finals week Pancake Dinner that they did for the college students too, and that also was a good time. We're really loving being back involved with the church again. And there are so many great people we have met and enjoy spending time with, it's just awesome.

On the homefront, we are feverishly working on getting the yardwork done and completed before Chad potentially leaves us this summer....yes, that's right....another dreaded deployment is upon us (BOOOOOO!). Once again, for the third summer (yes I said THIRD!!) in a row, my husband will be stuck overseas, this time in Kuwait. This is deployment number 5 for us (insert throw-up action here). It's quite frustrating, but we have tried to move past the negativity, though there is more than ever now that little Kennady is here. It breaks my heart to think about all of the growth and fun stuff he is going to miss (insert tears and heartbreak here). Ugh.

Moving on. This weekend is going to be a really crazy one for us! Saturday brings our second go at the garage sale (a little mishap in the newspaper advertisement last weekend (no address was listed)) caused us to need to go at it again. So, I will be doing that at a friend's house from 7-noon, then we have a graduation party for my bestie Elya who is graduating with her Master's in Psychology from 5-8pm, and then we have a block party to go to that is being hosted by our closest neighbors in our new neighborhood from 6:30-?. It's safe to say it's going to be a crazy day! BUSY BUSY, but a lot of fun, I'm sure! Then, Sunday morning after church, we are headed to SA-town to spend Mother's Day with the family. Nuts I tell ya! :)

I have been shopping-shopping for all kinds of fun stuff for the house. Mostly decor-related things. It's been a lot of fun. I'm what some would call a Frugalista, so it's like a game to me to find the best place to buy something for the best price. I have to admit, I've found some pretty awesome deals lately and I'm proud of it! :)

I got my first bouquet of Mother's Day flowers today in the mail from my sister, sis-in-law, and mommy. It was a beautiful set of bright tulips and they are really pretty. So sweet. I LOVE me some fresh flowers! And still to this day, it's surreal to me that I'm a mommy...but it's the sweetest thing in the world. :)

Well, that's most of all the babbles I have available for now. Hope you're having a great week! Now it's on to catching up on my blog readings!! :)

P.S. Happy Cinco de Mayo!!

Double "ugh" about the deployment!!! Did you guys go into Abilene with an understanding that there would be no more deployments, or was this expected?

I am sorry he's going to be going away again, sister! I guess I'll just have to come visit :) Does this mean he's missing Dom's wedding?

Also, can I know how many total pounds you gained during your pregnancy? Thanks :)
