Louisiana National Guard heads into NOLA to prepare for Gustav...


more pirates



Please keep my family and the people of New Orleans in your prayers as Gustav churns closer. It seems ironic that this is also the 3-year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. My mom has already made hotel reservations somewhere in Arkansas (the closest she could get, amazingly), and I'm hoping she won't have to use them.

I am obsessed with the Weather Channel.
And praying hard.


"Arrrrg!!!! Ahoy, Matey!"

Not sure about where our pirate obsession originated, but I found a pack of eye patches at Target and Izzy's in love. I have a video I may try to post, too.


foundation work is coming along nicely. basement to be done by early next week (at the latest) and plumbing will be laid down today, i think.

" i wuv you so much!"

My girls are sitting at the table eating breakfast and proclaiming their undying love for one another.

Izzy looked across the table at Abby and said, "I wuv you so much, Abs." Abby giggled and then replied, "I wuv you so much too, Izzy Bell." Now they are saying, "Nice ta meetcha."

Today I went running for the first time in just over a week. I was very bad last week. Dan wasn't feeling well, so he didn't run. And since I therefore had no motivation, I failed to run. What a slacker. But I did really well today and am so glad I went.

In other news, D and I picked out kitchen appliances over the weekend and are meeting with the cabinet maker on Wednesday. We've got a large stack of magazines to help us identify styles/things we like and don't like. Wish us luck!
