You may remember [from a few posts back] the ol' 1962 Lincoln that we've been trying to sell...well, it SOLD! Finally. After much prayer, a few tears, and two Ebay flops, [why people would bid on something that they don't intend to or can't pay for is beyond me] the Los Angeles city attorney bought it yesterday to use as a "parade car"! [He knows Jennifer Aniston, by the way...I thought that was prettty cool :)] God is so faithful. Since I don't have a full time job right now, this sale is a huge blessing and weight lifted from a pretty really tight budget lately.  He blessed us with a good profit, and we are so thankful to have a done deal...and be on our way to the BEACH! We haven't been on a trip, even a weekend away, since our honeymoon. Looking forward to some chill time before we both hit the books again soon. We found a {super great deal} on a condo in Panama City, FL that we will be sharing with Kelly (Paul's sis) and her husband, Nick, and Taylor. Leaving this Saturday at 5am... SO excited. 

Now, I'm off to mail the title to the LA City Hall and meet my love to go shop for some new sunglasses among other beach necessities!

really missing MSU...

Lately I've found myself missing Starkville and college a little bit, well maybe a lot.  

Maybe the reality is hitting me that I won't be picking up my student tickets and yelling "GO STATE!" like a crazy person with my cow bell in hand at every home game this season...

Davis Wade Stadium. MSU vs. South Carolina. Freshman year: October 2006.

Here are a few more reasons why I'm sorely missing college and living in Starkville...

Hoops at the Hump.

and watching Jarvis Varnado aka "SWAT" make block after block!
[now can't wait to watch him with the Miami Heat!!]

my sweet roomie, Diana, during sophomore year.

this divine place.

and more of our favorite good eats like 
{Petty's BBQ} 
{Little Dooey's} 

this little man, Walt, and his whole family. miss them tons!
[I started keeping him when he was 3 months old and now look at him! and he's got a baby sister now, too--Eleanor!]

camping out at Huddle House with Emily till 2am drinking coffee and working on our papers and maybe talking more than was absolutely necessary since we were supposed to be writing :).

Lee Hall = home of the English department = where I spent many, many hours.

As you can tell, Mississippi State/Starkville [for they really are inseparable] is one of my very favorite places. I'm maroon and white to the core :) Thanks for humoring me on my "trip down memory lane."  And if you aren't a Bulldawg, you don't know what you're missing!

what a thought.

Just wanted to share this thought I just read on Tara Leigh Cobble's blog. I read one of her books several months ago, and then began following her blog--good, good stuff.

"The depth of my sin, when inverted, 
can't reach the heights of His grace and mercy."

What an incredible Savior we have.


Life lately for us:

Our niece, Taylor, had her first slumber party with us!
{my kinda girl}

{in the ball pit my mom snagged at a garage sale}


{rise & shine!}

the '62 Lincoln Continental Paul bought to fix up & sell on Ebay--the auction ends this Sunday--hoping for enough profit to go on a little vaca!

us at Paul's brother's wedding at the Lichterman Nature Center.

enjoying the patio blooms
{a bit unruly}


photo shoot with my sweet friend Robin & her little chickadee, Olivia Carrington.
[I just love her name.]

a kitchen table re-do that took me entirely too long to finish. many thanks to my mama who helped 
tremendously with the sanding & staining!
{he was very interested in the project}
I can't believe how quickly the summer is passing! And to think that this time last year, we were scrambling around finishing up wedding details...
