If I Could #2….

I would:

  • Quit my job when this baby is born so I could be a full time mommy (not because I don’t love my job, but I love being a mommy more…)
  • Fly to Florida tomorrow so I could see all of my family and friends that I have been neglecting for tooooo long
  • Lose 20 pounds before I have to start putting it all back on again for my baby bump
  • Eat as much ice cream as I want without feeling guilty
  • Fast forward to December 16th at about 9pm (because of this)
  • Go to New York City the week before Christmas
  • Have dinner with Chris and Hope tonight.

The Necessity of Evolution


This is why I must evolve – this little toehead and the baby in my belly –

The options do not include laziness, apathy, whining, making excuses or fear. The option is this – make changes or slowly sink into oblivion…


Oh My Sweet Lord!

We are pregnant!

I’ve been in denial for a couple of weeks – excusing the queasiness for the airplane rides to and from NY and then kiddie rides at the state fair. I was wrong…we are very pregnant and we couldn’t be more excited! I went to the doctor’s office this morning to confirm – I’m about 6 weeks along and due in late June.

Nana and Papa are praying hard for a little girl, obviously – they have already bought the first gift – a pink bunny. Reagan says his little sister’s name is “astronaut”  and he wants her to come out “now!” Seriously, we are going to be thrilled with whatever God has chosen to bless us with.

We appreciate your prayers for us over the next 9 months or so. Leave me some comment love with your baby name suggestions! (feel free to leave off the scary pregnancy and labor stories, please!)


Mute Math – I don’t even know what to say…

Bryan posted some great pictures of our trip to see Mute Math last night – you should go check them out. (Thanks, Iggs, for the photo passes so we could get these!)

I really don’t know what to say other than this was the absolute best concert experience that I can ever remember having. I wish I would have saved my post on “If I Could….” until after this show because my number one thing would be to have the stuff it takes to just lay it all out there during a live performance. Seriously, they don’t hold anything back – from the first moment they came on stage they gave it everything – Carolyn and I just say their speechless the whole show.

So – go check out the pics on Bryan’s blog – check out their music on ITunes if you haven’t yet – and if they are anywhere within driving distance of you…go see their show! Amazing…


If I Could…

I would:

  • sing in a southern gospel quartet. I bet you would never guess this about me – but some of the most fun I’ve ever had musically is singing these amazing harmonies.
  • spend a whole week just staring at Reagan
  • go on vacation for a month to Italy with Don
  • find the time to take guitar lessons again
  • work full time trying to get Angela and Christopher published
  • go to culinary school and then open a restaurant with my smoochie
  • dance like no one was watching
  • start over
  • not have drank that frappachino five minutes ago
  • empty my closet and then go shopping (wait…I’ve done that one before)
  • give all of my wonderful staff big fat raises b/c they all deserve it 🙂
  • sing the national anthem at a nationally televised football game…yea…
  • go to Pottery Barn right now and redo my entire house and office (thanks, Millie, for making me jealous!)
  • live half of every year in Nashville singing backup for country music stars
  • get a tattoo – don’t know what of right now – but I’m feeling a little mischievous at the moment
  • write a book about the transitioning church ( I guess this is one that I could do, isn’t it?)

So – what would you do right now if you could do anything without fear of failure or retribution?

Comments – it’s the only way to show the love


Mute Math Tonight

I get to see these guys tonight at the House of Blues in Myrtle Beach…yea, I have a good life!


Don’t worry…


I’m really fine….sometimes I need to post what I’m feeling – it’s therapeutic for me.  So, if you read my last two posts and were concerned about me doing something crazy then rest assured that even if I do surprise everyone and do something “crazy” everything will be ok… 🙂
