weekend recap on tuesday

Hey y'all! 
I have a 15 minute break, 
so I thought I would pop in and give y'all an update on my weekend. 

I had to work until 3 pm. Yuck! 
But it wasn't a horrible work day 
and we were really busy, 
so, the time flew by. 
D DJ'ed (sp?) a Sweet Sixteen party Saturday night. 

It was a lot of fun. 
I really do not miss being 16 though. 
It reminded me of how awkward I was at that age. 

I slept way too late. 
Guess, my introvert brain needed to really recharge. 

That afternoon I went with D's family to 
The Moving Wall. 

Explanation from their website: 
"The Moving Wall is a half-size replica of the Washington, DC Vietnam Veterans Memorial and has been touring the country since 1984." 

It was truly an overwhelming experience. 
There are 58,000 names on that wall. 
That alone is overwhelming. 

Volunteers were reading the names on the Wall. 
They started Thursday morning and still had not finished reading all of the names when we got there Sunday afternoon. 
I am just continually grateful for everyone that has served in our Military and to their family members. 

Sunday night, my brother called and told me that it was 
baby night!!! 
She was officially born on Monday morning at 12:17 am 
at a tiny 5lbs 12oz. 

Please let me introduce my newest niece ... 
Ms. Anniston Elise. 

I will not get to meet her until the 2nd week in September, but I am in love already. 


  1. oh your niece is the cutest! i would be in love as well.
    oh i do not miss being 16 either, i was such an awkward weirdo.

  2. being 16 again? no thanks. hell, i can't even remember what it was like (it was THAT long ago) but i do remember it being awkward.
