There are so many things to share that my brain is protesting any thoughtful (read: coherent) post.  But good golly, miss Molly, it's FRIDAY!  So I'm confessing and linking up with Leslie.  And Joy.  Because that's what all the cool kids are doing.

One.  I snapped this picture of Grace last weekend just before my cousin's little girl's birthday party.

Is that smile not the most adorable thing you've ever seen?  I mean, seriously.  She crinkles her nose when she laughs... just like momma.

And I think we're starting to turn the corner on the tummy bug stuff.  Thank heavens.  That stuff is super un-fun.

(Also, I owe you guys a five month update, and it's definitely coming soon.)

Two.  We've got a fun weekend ahead.  Dinner with Micah's family tonight, lunch with my mom's side of the family tomorrow, and Grace's dedication at church on Sunday.  I'm supposed to be taking either some sort of a salad-y dish or a dessert to the thing tomorrow, and I am totally blanking out.  Any ideas, friends?

Three.  I'm putting myself on a self-imposed spending freeze.  Not for myself, but for clothes for Gracie.  I kid you not, I've spent a ludicrous amount of money on cute clothes for her (like that little pink dress in the picture above... kill me), and our bank account is taking a beating.  So I have to cut myself off.  Tomorrow.

Four.  Gracie is totally rocking her DOC Band!  (To read about our DOC Band adventure, click here.)

She started wearing it full time yesterday, and she's actually doing really great!  You can tell she's not loving it yet, but I think she'll be completely adjusted in a couple of days.  Her head is a teensy bit floppier than usual, but I hear that gets better, too.

There are places that will "wrap" the bands (like how cars are wrapped with advertisements, etc), but we went with simple.  Rhinestone stickers for the win!

Five.   I saved the best confession for last.  My brother and sister-in-law found out this week that they're having a little GIRL!  I am so. freaking. excited.  She'll be less than a year younger than Gracie, and I hope and pray that they will be close as they grow up.  Faith and I are going to have so much fun with our sweet girls.

Alright, friends.  That's all I've got today.  Hope you all have a fabulous weekend.  I think fall is officially on its way to Texas, and I couldn't be happier!

Sweet Grace is rocking that band! The sparkle rocks! I've also seen mommy's use double sided tape and add their flower clips or hair bows to them! Have a fabulous weekend!

Joy said...

I can't wait to see how you bling out that band! And I'm glad she is starting to feel a little better. Hopefully that will mean a wonderful fun weekend for y'all. Can't wait to hear all about the dedication this Sunday! Happy Friday, and thanks for linking up today. Y'all enjoy your busy weekend!

I need to go on a spending freeze too...seriously. There is just so many cute things for girls! I think if one more Zulily package arrives at our house my husband is going to freak, ha! :) So glad she is adjusting to the band well. She looks so cute!
