In honor of Heather, I present to you Chuck Taylor Tuesday… on Wednesday!
About a month ago I won a Facebook contest for a photoshoot with Erica. We cashed in on our prize on Monday evening and had some pictures taken of Elly. Erica is absolutely fabulous and we had a wonderful time getting to know her. She also has amazing photography skills and was able to capture some of Elly’s greatest facial expressions. We have not seen all of our photos yet, but the few sneak peeks she has posted have blown our minds and we could not be happier with the results! The above picture is the 3 of us sporting our Chucks.
This one is, by far, my favorite… so far! It’s our “family” picture from the evening and I literally got teary eyed when I first saw it.
Once she has finished editing she will share the rest with us so we can pick which ones we want prints of, so if you would be interested in purchasing any please let me know and I will forward them on to you.
As for the big announcement I was going to reveal… sorry there has been such a delay. I wanted to wait to announce it until we had everything lined up, but unfortunately things are not progressing as we had planned and there are still some kinks that need to be worked out…. BUT, here it is:
We are moving to Appleton, Wisconsin on September 5!
We have been hoping, planning, and trying to get out of Mount Pleasant for ages and the opportunity finally arose. It was nearly impossible for us to line up jobs anywhere, but luckily things finally worked themselves out just when we had decided to stop looking. Isn’t it funny how things work out sometimes. While the timing only left us with 3 weeks to prepare, we are very excited to start this new chapter in our lives.
In the process of trying to get things situation and ready, we actually had a chance to get Elly weighed today. She is currently 11 lbs. 15.5 oz – only 1/2 an ounce away from 12 pounds! She is also 25 3/4 inches long. Looks like our prediction of her being a tall, skinny beanpole are standing true. She is still cute as ever though and is growing up way faster than we want her too, but more on that tomorrow!
It’s been a long day of packing, so this Mama is off to bed!
