Updates, ideas, and prayers

It's been a few days since I've blogged. I've been on and reading all of your wonderful blogs. I just haven't really been in the mood to write. Usually I'm always in the mood to write, especially when I'm feeling as down as I have been these last few days. As I said in my last post, my mom has a tumor...well come to find out it is two tumors...and to make matters worse her doctor seems to think at least one is cancerous :( We find out tomorrow for sure..soo please pray for my momma. She's a srong lady, I know she'd kick cancers' ass, but still, it's heartbreaking knowing there is nothing I can do for her. She's a trooper though. All week she's been hanging in there and in very good spirits. So please, just keep her in your thoughts.

I start school in one month. Ughhh. I am excited. It is my senior year of college. I'm just soo not read to be stressed out again! Haha. But I am supposed to study abroad before I graduate in the Spring, so that should be very fun! Before school starts back up, I want to do something. Like Zumba. Has any of you ladies every done it? It looks like alot of work, but sooo much fun! I was thinking of ordering the DVD to do in the living room, so I don' have to take the class in front of people. I've danced for years, but it's been awhile and I definitely don't want to make a fool out of myself in front of a class full of people. I'm also trying to talk J into doing it with me. You know those Marines like to stay in shape haha! But who know if he'll actually do it. I hope so though! ;)

I also want to change my blog. I read all of your blogs and everyone has really adorable headers and backgrounds and stuff.. butttt I have absolutely no idea how to do any of that. Does anyone have any tips or ideas as to how I can make my blog somewhat cute. I wish I was computer savvy as most people are these days..But I am not and cannot seem to decorate or redo my blog the way I have in mind. So any ideas/tips would be greatly appreciated!

Have you ladies seen those adorable bags made out of cammies? With ribbons and colors and everything adorable like that?! Well I am dying to find a cute one to use for my school books this year. I don't want to spend tons of money on one, but I think the are super cute and a fun way to support our men. Anyone make them or know anyone who does?! :)

I plan on doing a post on what we have planned for the wedding soo far..not much but we do have the ceremony and reception site maybe this week I'll share some pictures!

I hope everyone's weeks are going well and enjoying the last bit of summer!


  1. I'm sorry to hear about your mom. She will definitely be in my prayers! Can't wait to see what you all have planned for your wedding!

  2. I know how hard it is to find out something like that! Keep your spirits up and God will take care of it all :) you all are in my prayers though!
    As far as your blog goes and wanting to change it, I downloaded Corel Software which kind of gave me a little something to work with.. I also downloaded photoshop 2 or 3..? I can't remember.
    Something I found most helpful though was just plain powerpoint.
    Make your header, banner whatever you want but save it as a JPEG file.
    I hoped that helped a little. I know it can be frustrating!
    Good luck! ;)

  3. Random... I found your blog! I guess you're my first "real-life" bloggy friend. I can totally help you with making a cute layout!
