My want list

If I win the lottery tonight I am definitely buying everything on this post!

Farmhouse bed from PB, king, pls? I even like the bedding with it. I'll take two of these also!

Montego dining table and chairs from PB

Isabella barstool - 3 of these for the breakfast bar.

MacBook pro

I think that's it for my list today. I want to add an iPhone4, dslr, and a new car. It a very short list so it shouldn't be that hard to get 'em all in one day. Ha! One can dream, right?

We have a walker!

I didn't think this day was going to come. I was actually nervous that she would be 2 years old and still not walking. Ha! Her pediatrician did say not to worry since the average age for babies to walk is around 13.5 months. Kayla crawls really fast and doesn't like to walk all that much. She knows that she can get somewhere a lot faster if she crawled. She cruises around the living room a lot - on the couch, coffee table, etc.

My mom called me at work on Monday to let me know that Kayla took 11 consecutive steps. I remember telling her to stop making Kayla walk 'cause I was afraid that she wouldn't do it in front of me when I got home. Ha!

I got home that afternoon from work all excited to see if my baby girl was going to put on a show and she did! She walked and I got it on video. J was pretty upset that he wasn't home when all of this happened. I had to quickly upload the video and email it to him.

Our trip to Tidewater

Kayla and I went down to see J on Saturday. The decision to see him was not planned at all but necessary. We left Richmond around 730am and Kayla did so well on the drive down. We listened to Rascal Flatts and she snacked on Cheerios. She was a good little travel buddy.

She was so excited when she saw J! I know J was, too! This last 3 weeks or so has been a little tough but the end is finally in sight! With or without a job, we are moving come September 1st!

The purpose of our trip was to check out a couple of places that J had already seen. We looked at one place and decided to go with it. It's in the city and very different from where we are living now but the place felt just right. It's pretty much brand new and we'll be the 2nd tenants when we move in. The amenities of the complex are just amazing and the area is great. J's job is only a 5 minute drive and we are so close to everything.

I am so excited that we know when we'll all be together again but I'm not looking forward to packing and the move itself. It's a bit scary since I don't have a job lined up but I'm going to stay positive and hope for the very best. We will definitely miss Richmond, specially our parents. I know the grandmas have been emotional wrecks since we told them about this move but we are only 100 miles down the road.
