Our week has definitely improved, thank you SO much for the sweet comments and emails. I miss the blog world so much. I miss documenting our lives, I miss checking in on y'all. But I am trying to make peace with the fact that this just happens to be a very very busy season of life for us. We are officially in the final stages of house building. We still don't have an exact move-in date, but it has to be soon. Our microwave was just installed today, for heaven's sake. We're equipped to pop popcorn, I'd say we're ready to move in! ;) In all honesty, we probably have a couple more weeks. The way things have been going, maybe even a few more weeks. Everything takes so much longer than you anticipate. But it's just around the corner.

Other things that have been keeping us occupied:

All of the {horribly frustrating, time-consuming, and stressful} aspects of dealing with refinancing and mortgage loans. Prayers would be greatly appreciated, if you feel so inclined.

A new bible study. I started Beth Moore's ~ Esther. Oh how I love it! Seriously, this is my favorite so far. It seems that some of y'all have done this one. If not, I HIGHLY recommend it. And I'm only on week 2.

The {FABULOUS} Photographers' Workshop ~ with Karen Russell. Did I mention I won an auditing spot in this class? I have wanted to take a photography class/workshop for a long time. And I'm THRILLED to be enrolled this session ~ even if it is during the busiest time of my life, lol! Hey, giveaway winners can't be choosers. ;)

And, of course, this happens to be a busy birthday season for us as well. We had a lovely birthday celebration for Kam last weekend. Everyone was feeling better, and ready for some partyin'! :) I'll leave you with a couple of pictures:

I'm excited you are so close to move in! I will pray for you all! I must take a photography class this summer...MUST!

Have a wonderful weekend Liz!

Kam's birthday looks so pretty and girly!! She's so adorable!

Sending up prayers for the refinancing/mortgage stuff. It can be stressful! I'm so excited for you that the microwave is installed!!! That is so're so close!

We're still working on our floors. So, it'll be a few more weeks for us. The good news is that the cabinets and appliances are ready and just waiting on us. I'm hoping for some speedy processes!

Hope you all continue to stay well! How's the pg going?

Have a great weekend!

YAY for the final stages!! I'm so jealous that you get to build a brand new house. I would love to but it may cause a divorce. My hubs is a work-a-holic and he used to be a builder but I bet our house would take a back burner longer than I would want it to. So, I'll just sit back and admire yours.

I loved seeing the party pics!! Our busy birthday season is over until December. =)

Her cake is so cute and pink! I know you are so ready to move it...I hope these last few weeks fly by! I just started the Beth Moore fruit of the spirit far so good!

Colleen said...

Wow, a new house and then a new baby...what an exciting (and stressful) time. Kam is soooooo cute and I love all the girly presents :)

Foursons said...

Good to hear y'all are all feeling better. Exciting news about the house! And Kam is just a doll. How did she like her party?

MomBrose said...

Be are not the only one in a busy season :) But I do miss ya!
So do you think you will actually put things in boxes or will you just walk out the back door and put stuff in the new house? :D
Praying for you guys during this busy time and for all the pieces to fall into place with the house.

Vivienne said...

Will be praying for your peace of mind and smooth sailing as far as paperwork and moving in.

Love the party pix!

Busy Bee Suz said...

I am so glad everyone is feeling better.
Busy; that is life happening. Right?
Enjoy your family.

Jenny said...

I'm so happy you all are better! It looks like Kam had a great party!

I've heard great things about Beth Moore's bible studies.

Mortgage stuff is insanely stressful! I'll be thinking of you all!

Heidi @ Blue Eyed Blessings said...

Liz, I'm glad to hear that you are feeling better and that you were able to have a birthday celebration for your sweet little Kam! Don't feel bad about this being a season of your life that you can't blog as much or visit other blogs. We still love you!! ;)

Kelli said...

OOH, one of my friends is letting me borrow Esther this I'm really excited. I'm thrilled that the house is almost close. That precious!

Kelly @ Blessed Mommy, Blessed Wife said...
