Catching Up-Round 1

I will do my best to use this week to get you all caught up on things that I have failed to blog about. I plan to do a post for each weekend and/or event that I have missed.

July 12th...YARD SALE and Cook Out!

The end of last year my parents told Josh and I they are two storage units full of things and if we wanted to have yard sale we could have it. I wasn't sure I wanted to do it but Josh and I thought it would be silly to pass up that opportunity. At the time Josh was living in Lamar so my parents loaded up a box truck and hauled it all there. We were able to store it in the basement of his church. A few weeks later Josh got the call from Life Line in Little Rock and a few weeks after that he took the job. So Josh moves to Little Rock but all our yard sale stuff stays in Lamar. Not to mention in the mean time we also got engaged and thus adding more stress. The yard sale became a black cloud hanging over us. We decided we just needed to pick a date and go with it. We picked July of the hottest days of the summer...but we got it done and God blessed us! Josh worked SOOOOOO hard, with the help of his mom and grandmother. I did my part too but was unable to help until Saturday.

EARLY Saturday morning! Josh sporting his sunscreen!

13 round tables FULL of things. We had stuff everywhere.

Even more stuff!
After a long day in the hot sun we went to Russellville to have dinner with friends of ours. Holly, my roommate and best friend and Justin, one of Josh's best friends. Josh and I played match-maker and it has worked out well.

You realize once you are married and living in LR - you have to update a LOT or I'm going to drive down there and beat you! I won't miss you as much if you'll update a lot!

I know you've been busy so I'm giving you a pass.

Aren't you glad that yard sale is over? I know you have had a lot of things going on this summer it has been very hectic and stressful. But hopefully things are starting to settle down a little. Now is the time to start really enjoying your wedding plans, it will be here before you know it. Have fun with it, you will be a beautiful bride and have a beautiful wedding.
I Love You

A yard sale is so much work, but so worth it to clean all that "stuff" out!
