My first favorite of 2011:

I'm obsessed & I'm okay with it.

Today I am very thankful for
the number one man in my life.

As most of you know, hd was in the Peace Corps in 2006.
After graduating from college, he left for
Guyana, South America.

After being gone about four months he became
very ill. He was treated by foreign doctors,
took lots of medicine and repeatedly went to the hospital.
After another three months, he was
medically released from the Peace Corps.
This meant he could come home, get better, and return
to complete his two years of service if he wished.
It was a very rough and long seven months
but worth every minute to be where we are today.

With all this being said,
this past week ABC and 20/20 did a special
on the Peace Corps. However this special was not aired to
talk about the good the Peace Corps does. Instead it aimed
to shed light on the terrible things that have happened
to many volunteers.

So today I thank him for his service, kind heart,
and his desire to change the world, and thank God for bringing
him home safely to me.

what are you thankful for today?

celebration part two

In honor of Jd turning 30 - two celebrations were needed.

Saturday night we went downtown
(with every other person in atlanta)
to watch the Falcon's 'play' and more celebrating!

We had dinner and drinks at STATS
and enjoyed some more family time!
-and painfully watched the Falcon's give up the game-

Five and a half years ago I bought my first
and only pair of eye glasses, that I wear every single day
- sometime for more than ten hours at a time -
With that being said, these glasses have seen better days.

As part of my Christmas gift from hd, he decided
to buy me new glasses!! :)
(this would not only be extremely beneficial for me,
but for him as well, seeing as he was having to look at
me while I am wearing these awful glasses!)
-note: he calls me grandmother, which explains the lovely picture-

So this weekend we took a trip to the store to
buy the new glasses I've had my eyes on.

And I'd say I left there a very very happy girl!

Here's to being able to see! :)

30th Birthday

Jd turned 30 on the 9th and the family
spent the day celebrating.

We started the day with a movie at Atlantic Station
to see 'True Grit' which was actually really good!

Then to dinner at Pacci Ristorante, which is connected
to a Hotel that is Pet Friendly. The lobby includes
food and water bowls for puppies, a bed and the menu
offers pup biscuits "for you little one at home!"

The night ended with cake and more family time
at Jd and Brooke's Condo in Atlanta!

Happy 30th Birthday Jd!

Mama Reeves

Last weekend was Lauren's Baby Shower for
Maddux Lee Reeves!

I cannot believe the little boy will be here
in roughly seven weeks!

Here are a few pictures of
the beautiful mother-to-be!
