ten on tuesday.

1. We’re getting in the swing of summer around here and I’m super excited about it. Our awesome babysitter is home from college and the kids are so thrilled to have her back. They’ve planned all sorts of fun things for their time together already and they kicked things off with a trip to the library to get signed up for the summer reading program this morning. I feel so blessed that we’ve found such an awesome young woman to be part of our kiddos’ lives. We love you Rachel!

2. Yesterday was the big Facebook page giveaway and I’m SO pumped for those of you who won super fun prizes! Heather or I will be in touch this week with details about your winnings. =) I’m also super pumped that we busted through the 4,000 “likes” mark and are sitting pretty at 4,024 as I type this. (Not that I’m counting or anything). Wootie Woot!

3. This evening I was able to speak to the Huntsville Lilies of the Valley – a support group for survivors of ovarian cancer. I got to spread the gospel of telling your story through photographs. I love doing that! If you’re local and you need a speaker for your group, hit me up! I’d love to come chat your ear off!

4. I have it on good authority that tomorrow’s post on the Rock the Shot blog should be a winner. I hear there might be a Clean Color discount code too. 😉

5. We got my Granny’s antique glider set back last week and it’s BEAUTIFUL. I’m absolutely thrilled with the way it’s been restored to its original glory. The man who did it for me said that when he took the paint off the rust was so bad that it wouldn’t have lasted another year. I’m so glad I did it when I did! If you are local and you have something that needs some TLC, I’d love to pass his name along!

6. My mama is coming tomorrow and I get to show her the Cottage. It’s like Christmas morning!

7. After regretting signing up for the Cotton Row 5K race on Memorial Day and dreading it every minute of the weekend, I did it. Brent and I got an early morning babysitter, biked into downtown and ran the race before our kiddos even got out of bed. He logged a 25:45 and I a 25:56, putting us 14th and 8th in our age groups. We’re certainly no Shertzers but we’ll take it!

8. Speaking of the Shertzers, we received confirmation today that our Isle of Palms beach house is officially booked for July. Bring on the Clark/Cobb/Shertzer reunion!

9. Do you have a kiddos winding up the school year? Did he/she have an awesome teacher this year? If so, I have two suggestions. First, write a letter telling the teacher what a great job you think he/she did. Be specific. Second, make a copy of that letter and put it onto the principal’s box. Everyone who has done a good job deserves to be bragged on a bit. Why not make it official?

10. Favorite sandals and bathing suits of the season? Ready…go! (Inquiring feet and bodies need to know…)

Awesome job on the race! I can’t believe you let him beat you by :11 seconds, though! You’ll take him next time 😉

ElizabethMay 29, 2012 - 9:05 pm

Holy crap, you’re a fast runner. I happily plod along at about a 13 minute mile ; )

Sandals: Jambu. Find a thousand styles at Zappos. Bathing suit: Title Nine. You can order straight from the catalog and it will fit on the first try.

I want my grandma’s glider (swing, we called it) restored so badly I could cry, but I don’t have it in my possession. And it’s probably too rusted out by now to save. Sigh.

When I went to Las Vegas two weeks ago, my friends introduced me to a store called Downeast Basics and I got the cutest suit and little swim skirt there. It’s only a western states store (Denver and west) but they have a website and ship everywhere! downeastbasics.com

That’s an amazingly awesome time for the Cotton Row! Congratulations!

The hands-down comfiest sandals I own are by Kork-Ease. Which sounds like a granny brand but I promise they have cute styles. I’m still wearing my Kork-Ease 3-inch wedges at nearly 8 months pregnant so you know they’re comfortable. I also bought a pair of gold goddess-y flat Kork-Ease sandals I love. You can find them on Zappos and Piperlime, and a few other online places if you look around a bit.

As they say, details make or break the argument.. And it couldn’t be more true right here. Having said that, allow me reveal to you what did do the job. Your authoring is quite engaging which is possibly the reason why I am making an effort in order to opine. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. Next, despite the fact that I can see a jumps in reason you come up with, I am not necessarily sure of just how you seem to unite the details which in turn make your conclusion.
