The Puzzle Club

So go ahead and call us dorks!
The other day while J and I were strolling around in Walmart, we came across the puzzle isle. Oh yes, we bought a 1500 piece puzzle and have been working on the massive thing ever since. The only table we have the is big enough to work on it is our dinning room table. So, because J thinks we can't work on the puzzle without the TV on, we had to move to table into the living room. I would be very embarrassed to have anyone over to our house right now, not only because they would think we were the biggest nerds with this puzzle out, but also because that one piece of furniture out of it's place makes me feel like our whole house is a wreck.
I do have to say i'm a little addicted to working on this puzzle. Anytime I have a free minute I try to find another fitting piece. It might take us a year to finish this monstrosity, but we will get it done. Alyssa, LP, and Aly might know this feeling, because I do recall the summer after our freshman year in college they created "The Puzzle Club." I was not a part of this puzzle club but I'm pretty sure they invited Ryan (my brother in law) to be a part of this club. You have to know each of them to know how funny this is.
Oh well, I guess if me and my friends weren't so dorky we wouldn't be any fun to be around. And i'm so glad I married a dork too, to enjoy doing things like this with me!

Oh and did I mention I get to see Durham all weekend. We have a wedding in Lexington and get to spend the whole weekend with the fam! I can't wait to hold her and kiss her!

Just a little update

The summer is flying by and so many fun things have already taken place, but there is still so much to look forward to before the weather starts turning cold. Of course there is always more time to spend with my sweet little Durham, and that is always something i look forward to. Some other things to be excited about in our coming weeks are: Spending this weekend in Atlanta with J's family, Mama and I are going on a mission trip together the first week of August, and last but not least, our Family Edisto Beach Trip the last week in August (Durham's first beach trip).

I don't wish the days away, because I love summer time, but I am excited that there is so much coming up to be excited about. I love this summer weather...a lot of people probably think i'm crazy, but I would rather walk outside and immediately start sweating than walk outside and immediately have my teeth start chattering. I'm not a fan of winter weather. After Christmas is over, i'm ready for summer weather again.

All this to say, i'm soaking up the great hot weather while i can. Fall will be here before we know it!

I had to work from 6:30am to 10:30am on Tuesday morning and as soon as I was off, I got in the car and raced to Laurens. I couldn't get there fast enough. I am officially obsessed with my new niece, Durham. I spent the day and night with Court, Ry, Mama, and sweet Durham and we had a blast. She is the sweetest, best smelling thing in this world. I could sit and hold her all day long and never move and inch, and be more than happy. I never thought I could love someone else's child so much. I know she has my name but I truly do feel a special bond to her. I can't wait to continue to watch her grow up to be a pretty young lady, but I don't want it to happen too fast, i'm loving watching this sweet, innocent, helpless in every way, baby!

Last night Courtney Shelton and Elizabeth Ann came to visit and meet Durham. It is so fun watching others see her for the first time! Courtney and Ryan are doing great and I know they appreciate all of mama's help this week. They are already amazing parents!

J couldn't go with me yesterday but I know he wanted to be there, because he kept asking me to text him pictures of Durham and give her kisses! I don't know the next time I will be able to go to Laurens, but I know one won't be soon enough! I left this morning to go back to work, but I hated leaving! I think we all know where I will be spending all my spare time in the next 5+ years.

Welcome to the World little Durham!

As of July 9th at 3:35pm, J and I became an Aunt and Uncle. Durham Cameron Molony is the most perfect, precious, beautiful creature on the face of this earth. (Court has my camera so I can't post pics, but please see pics later on today on her blog
I can't tell you how much I already love her and love being an aunt!
We spent 15 hours at the hospital yesterday with a bunch of family and friends, and thanks to the cutest little boy in the whole entire world, Henry, we were all well entertained as we waited for Durham to make her entrance. Yesterday was one of the best days of my life and I can't wait to send some more of the weekend with Durham, Court and Ryan. We are leaving to go back to the hospital when J gets home from work in a little while and hanging out with them until they go home tomorrow.
Court did great and was the best sport, and I know she would not of been able to be such a trooper without Ryan being by her side through the whole amazing experience. So, Congrats new Mommy and Daddy! We are all so excited for you! You will be the best parents for Durham, bringing her up in a Godly household and always striving to show her God's love!
We love you and your new family addition more than you know!!!!
