Our little Appleseed in some pictures...

Our First Girl Purchase...Lyell had to have them.

June Bug...a post I wrote over two months ago!

I'm not quite sure what I even want to write. I am not writing this for anyone else, just for myself and my family. So here it goes... October 2, 2011

I wanted mine and Lyell's love to be enough. Enough to show the world, and though it has taken its time... Our love will now be shown a whole other way. Still very hesitantly excited about this recent change. We still have several tests and hurtles...but for now we are over the moon. I have decided that, YES, I could worry myself (and for good reason) or I can enjoy each moment I have right now. 
So I am taking the latter and running with it.

 I havent decided if I am going to answer myself in redundant questions each week/months. Like "Is your belly button in or out?" I dont feel like answering that question 40 times and I sure the 5 people that read this will be happy I dont. But I would like to write down a few things that has happened over the last few day.

My first test I took was Wednesday(4days before the Dr. told me to), Lyell had already left for work early to study. I cant stand to go long periods of time when I have valuable information to tell him...I waited just a little while so he could study and then made the call. Lyell's Reaction "But you weren't going to test till Saturday?" Owww, Lyell!!!
 By Thursday I had told my mother....she was just as excited as I thought she would be. And I kinda needed it because I wasn't letting my self get excited at all. By Friday Lyell and I has told some close friends that knew what we had been going through. I am still waiting til next week, for all my betas to come in. After that I will starting planning out this "Junebugs" entire life :)

These are a few of my favorite things...

I have not posted anything in sooo long. I am such a horrible blogger. I think I am just a lucker at heart. So to catch you up...

We went searching for Lyell's favorite local coffee bean shop. We knew it was in Old Hickory but we had never seen this mirage business. We finally found it to find out there store hours: Monday from 6:30am to 1:00pm and Sunday from "worship" to 10:30am...REALLY? Those are not real store hours. Needless to say we keep missing this rare opportunity.

Lyell and I roamed to the Nashville Farmers Market a couple weeks ago (when it was like 115 degrees outside).We had a blast the whole day. Bought the best Zucchini Bread known to man and I have been thinking about it ever since. Note to self: Do not eat HOT spicy gumbo when it is 115 degrees outside.

We have been obsessively loving the Padthai Kitchen in East Nashville. The service is the worst, but the food is so damn good you don't even care. I am not being picking about the service...its really like the worst I have ever seen. Padma and Tom Colicchio would have walked out and said "pack your knives and go". However, they do have a website http://www.wix.com/juy211/pad-thai-kitchen#!location  Here is a picture of me patiently waiting for my food and Lyell making fun of the crazy lady with bluetooth in one ear and the phone in the other.

 I recently found out one of my closest friends is moving to El Paso for 2 years. I am very sad about this...but she will be flying back to Nashville a lot for work and it will give me an excuse to visit her. We flew down there last week to check it out and look at her new house. Though I think we spent more time at the airport, El Paso was a great little town and I think Latisha's little family will enjoy it. Here are some random pictures I took while we were there.

Not Smoking

So, at the end of week one of not smoking...it defiantly is still painful. It really isn't something I even wanted to do...but it is something that I NEED to do. Lyell and I went to a specialty doctor that really laid down the law if we want to continue to see him (which I want because he is the best). He prescribe us some Wellbutrin to help with the anxiety and stress of it all.  

To think I have been smoking for 11 years kinda grosses me out. It been this thing I have done for so long, I guess I never stepped back and evaluated how unattractive it really is. I made a quick collage of some random pictures I found of me smoking (I am sure there are a ton more)...

So to my friend of 11 years...I have enjoyed you to the fullest. You have given me friends that I might not have ever meet if I wasn't standing outside in the freezing cold or in the hot HOT heat. You have been there after every meal, every car ride, every concert, every vacation, every stressful situations, every late night college talks with my girls... every big event. I am turning 30 this year and it would be nice to started it off in the right step. So goodbye my friend....I will surely miss you.

Random Highlights of the Week:  We tried giving ourselves a constant sugar high, walked at the greenway for hours because its the one thing we do that doesn't consist of smoking, we have yelled at each other for the stupidest thing and then laughed about, Lyell had a house wife breakdown and lets just say I never want a blowpop again...

To be honest, another thing that really helped Lyell and myself make the decision was the new FDA labels that will be coming out on cigarette packs. I think it was a great move...it made me think twice after seeing this...
