"For the Lord God is a sun and shield; He bestows favor and honor; no good thing does He withhold
from those whose walk is blameless."
Psalm 84:11

Memphis...A Winter Wonderland?

Who would have thought Memphis could get such weather?? After a night of wrestling with the covers and trying to get comfortable, I was extremely irritated to hear my phone buzzing in the early morn. Who could be trying to contact me so early? Craig arose and started getting ready for work and I frustratedly reached for my phone. I had received two text messages from my fellow coworkers asking if the meeting I had scheduled for this morning was canceled due to the weather. Weather? What weather?

So quickly I reached to pull back the curtain and was blinded by the bright white light caused by the fluffy blanket of snow!! Could it really be?? I missed the snow day the week and a half before because of my bridal duties in Nashville! I was now given the opportunity to enjoy the snow in full! Although Craig had to head to the office, because it's literally 2 minutes away, I was thrilled at the idea of staying in my pajamas!

A much needed day of rest! From traveling every weekend, to hosting showers, to preparing for our major upcoming women's conference, the Lord heard my cry and knew my NEED of rest! He really does hear our needs and desires to answer our prayers! I praise you Lord, the Creator of beautiful snow!

Growing, growing, growing!

I went back to the doctor on Thursday and everything still looks good! I've gained 5lbs since my last appointment, as if you couldn't tell in the pictures, so Hutton is growing by the minute now! I'm right on track though! Craig felt him move for the first time this morning! It was really sweet! I feel him move all the time and it's so amazing! I can't believe I have a little person growing inside. It's so crazy! We can't wait to meet him!

I hosted a shower for my friend Aubrey here in Memphis today! There are five of us that moved to Memphis to go through the DownLine program and we are all pregnant! As you can see from the picture, we are really close in due dates! It's great to have such a support team of amazing women when we are so close from our families. These are incredible gals and I'm so blessed to have them in my life!

Craig is studying to take the Series7 Exam in less than two weeks! His first official day in the office was Friday and he absolutely loved it! He came home and was in such a good mood and excited about the days ahead! It made me happy because I love to see him enjoying what he's doing! Please pray for him as he continues to study. It's a big exam and can be pretty intimidating, but I know he's going to do great!! This has been such an amazing opportunity already and we are trusting that it's totally from the Lord!!
