We went to the fair

Friday nights, for a while now, has been the “go to Yia Yia and Papa’s house” (my parent’s) night. This week was a little different as (1) I had 2 hours of sleep in 36 hours and (2) My parent’s church had a booth at the county fair. So me and the two littles went with Yia Yia and Papa to the fair.

And then, on whim, while randomly at Wal-Mart I grabbed this pair. They were 98 cents, what could I lose. These have lasted me the longest this summer. Go figure.

Getting Ready, Getting Excited

For some reason I’m crazy excited about summer this year. I’m finding this funny because I hate the Arkansas heat. Maybe I’m excited this year because I won’t be 8/9/10 months pregnant. Maybe it’s the fact that I have a little girl who very much loves the out doors.
