texas, here we come!

well, my friend had her sweet baby girl about four hours after we left her home!  can't wait to sneak a peek soon!  we'll be cooking up a storm for them!

and...i figured what better day to finish the dissertation then the day the baby we've all been waiting forever to hold arrived.  so, yours truly stayed up til 'bout midnight doing finishing touches, not without some dr. pepper mind you.  so, now both "babies" are done cooking!

today, it is printed and spiral bound ready to be shipped.  hallelujah and amen.

i was thinking. i've been working on school since i've been trooper's mama.  he's never known any difference.  well, that's about to change!  soon, i'll be able to focus all my attention to my sweet dumplings.

{technically i have one more super duper hard question to finish about ph balance, urine levels, saliva, salt numbers, blah, blah...}

which reminds celebrate the ending of so many things and the beginning of something new, we're taking a girlie road trip!  we can't wait to make it to country living's fair in austin next weekend!  the girls will be shopping and the boys will be do lots 'o fishing.

what could be better?

here's to being done.  yee-haw.
