Baby James in here!

James Strom arrived on Tuesday, May 1st. Since we've taught with Amy her entire pregnancy we all feel like it's our child, too! I guessed the date, so I was excited about that. We spent the entire day getting updates and were able to see James on Tuesday evening. He is so cute! He weighed 7 pounds, 12 ounces. We were so excited to finally see him!

Little Man Shower

The third grade teachers threw Amy and baby James a shower 2 weeks ago. I searched Pinterest for an inspiration and discovered the little man theme. I knew this theme would be perfect for Amy. I love the mustaches and ties! We had a wonderful shower and baby James got lots of great gifts. Here's a look at baby James' Little Man Shower!

Chandler's Wedding Shower

Chandler is getting married in June, so we wanted to throw her a little wedding shower. We all went to downtown to eat at Trio. It was so yummy! We celebrated with a cute cake and lots of gifts! We're going to miss her so much when she goes to Texas!

Birthday Weekend-26!

Last weekend I celebrated my 26th birthday. It was a pretty low key birthday since I have so much going on at school and finishing up with graduate school. I always love my birthday and try to make a week out of all the festivities. It was really nice to relax and get some rest. My kids spoiled me with some gifts and goodies on Friday. Friday night, my mom and I went shopping. It's been a while since I've been shopping for myself. On Saturday, I spent the day at home and then went shopping with Brent. We went to Clemson and Greenville for the day. On Saturday night, we celebrated with my family at Trio. I had a delicious chocolate cake and some great gifts. I ate dinner at my grandparents and with the Jacksons later on in the week. Brent and I also went to Sullivan's this weekend for a late birthday dinner. I enjoyed spending time with my family and was so grateful for all my gifts. I got lots of great dresses for the summer! I'm looking forward to a great year!
