goodness golly gracious

if i had a million dollars
the first things i would buy...

no more hospitals, please

my bennett is back home
even though he spent the afternoon in the ER today
because he had an allergic reaction to his medications
i swear it's one thing after another...

but i am leaving him this friday
to go to nantucket with the family i babysit for
for 9 days
for free
on a private plane
how lucky am i?
i am so excited
although it breaks my heart to leave bennett like this.

no more moping

since sitting around and worrying doesn't do anything
why not pass the time by looking at beautiful clothing
and getting inspired by fashion blogs?

today has been one of the hardest days of my life
my bennett is back in the hospital
and it is breaking my heart to see him in pain

please pray for him
and for me

bennett had surgery on his shunt yesterday
and it went well
but he is now having bad headaches
which is what we didn't want to happen
so there's a chance he might have to have another surgery

please keep him in your thoughts and prayers

a little update

since i haven't posted anything in about 4534567 years
i thought i'd do a little update
(in list-form, of course)

1) my bennett is home. and i am loving every second of it : )
2) i have the best job(s). on mondays, wednesdays, and fridays, i pick up 5 1/2 year old caroline from camp and then play with her at the pool. on tuesdays and thursdays, i crawl around with 10 month old jack who is the happiest and cutest baby in the world.
3) stephanie is coming to nashville on thursday. i have missed her dearly.
4) did i mention bennett is back?
5) we're trying to find a venue for the wedding reception. it's very stressful. weddings are EXPENSIVE.
6) bennett and i get to go to nantucket for 9 days in july. for free (more on that later).
7) i don't really like change. at all.
8) bennett is having more surgery on friday. hopefully this will be the last time.
9) if you are ever in nashville, you must eat here. it is my new favorite restaurant.
10) i cannot wait to get married.
