Such a girl . . .

Okay so a friend of mine from Church who was also my roommate for two and a half years is getting married today.  She is 10 years younger than me, skinny as a rail, and no doubt will be GORGEOUS!! So, my almost 33 year old body (which can't compete) has been trying to find something to wear for the wedding.  I have dresses that I wear to work and Church but I wanted something new.  I've looked and fretted and looked some more.  Now it is the day of the wedding and there is less than six hours until it starts.  I have yet to find something that I think will be trendy.  Now why is it that it drives me crazy to look at my closet and think that among her 20 something friends that I will look dowdy? NUTS!  I look at my closet and think that's to long, to plain, to something.  Then I go to the stores and I think that's to short, to revealing, to young.  ARGH!!! Does anybody else feel that way about going to events where other women will be?  I know that I will get dressed in something from my closet since the clock is counting down and I will think that I look pretty good and then I'll get there and feel like Ms. Thirty-something among all of the skinny, tan, cute dressed college girls.  Whatever!!!   Sigh, I'm such a girl.

Baby Ann Elizabeth (Annie)

Okay so the day is finally here . . . Ann Elizabeth Parsley is here!! She was born today at 12:52 p.m. weighing 7lbs 8oz and 19 inches long.  She has a TON of black hair and looks just like Noah and Lilly Grace did.  Jessica and Annie are both doing great!  I am so thankful that God has blessed our family with another healthy baby.  God is so good.

My new place . . .

So I officially moved in to my new place two weeks ago today.  It's an apartment but I don't care, I'm not ready financially to buy a house.  I remember the anxiety that I felt buying a brand new car several years ago and I'm just not ready to buy a house on my own yet.  Anyway, I have lived with a roommate the past 3 1/2 years and though it had its positives there is nothing quite like having my own place again.  I LOVE it, it's quiet where I live, and very close to the office so I can go home at lunch and also sleep a little bit later. 

Other than that I really have nothing new to share except now the number of expectant friends/family that I have has dropped to five instead of seven which was the number at the beginning of Spring.  It's fun and I love it and can't wait to meet each of the new babies.  I also love buying for them and spoiling them and then going home to my quiet new apartment =). 

We have been very busy at work this month and for that I am thankful.  In these trying economic times, I'm glad to have a job period but having a job that I love with a great group of people is awesome.

Hope you are all having a GREAT Summer.
