oh hi!

I haven't blogged in days. I feel bad about it, but I've been so busy. Yesterday was Mark's grandpa's funeral. Chris & Brittney came too, and we all hung out for the entire day. It was great. We ate at Panera Bread, and I had an amazing chicken salad sandwich that changed my life. Later, we gathered around the television and ate fried chicken with our fingers. A trip to Starbucks and a drive around town completed our fun day together.


My sister moved into a bigger house (because of her growing family) a couple days ago. Yesterday we went over to see Clayton's completed bedroom. He has a new shower head that makes the water shoot out at his level. He thinks it's the coolest thing ever -- he even sticks his foot out and says, "Look! The water tickles my feet!" Hudson is having lots of fun walking up and down the stairs. Clayton doesn't like to really sit on my lap in front of people, but he will in private. Last night he reassured me that I would "still be his favorite" when he turns fifteen. I told him that, somehow, I doubt he'll want me kissing him on the neck and patting his little butt when he becomes a teenager. He said I was wrong. He promised I was wrong.

We shall see ;]


Mark and I are having a blast with Kentucky food. Zaxbys (hallelujah), Kyoto, Samurai, Linzies, home cooking.. seriously?! I never want to go back to Virginia now! Just kidding. Kind of. Piper is 100% "used" to being in Kentucky now and has become a close companion to my dad and Clayton.

I'm unsure what we'll be doing today and Monday, but we're going home on Tuesday. I'm definitely not looking forward to the 12 hour drive back to Virginia. It drags on and on and I swear it feels like it takes half a day to get back to Langley. Snicker.

Get it?

12 hours. Half a day. Haaaaa.


  1. Seems like you're having fun. That makes me so happy. I can't wait to go back home either. I know that it will get old, but it wont get old at least for about a week or two. :) I can't wait for his mom's homecooking... *I think* these days not much is tasteing so good.

    And thats so cute about Hudson. He seems so sweet. You are going to be an awesome mom when the mom comes. We are going to see pictures of that baby on here all the time, which is going to be awesome. :)

    hahaha... half a day. You're so funny. as soon as I saw that I was like, she's so silly. I hope it's not such a bad drive for the both of you. Maybe something will come up and make it awesome. :)

  2. I love you, Shannon. I'm glad you got to go home and be with your family. It sure is refreshing visiting "home" and all the things you love about it.

  3. Trips home are always so soul-refreshing, aren't they? :) 12 hours drive for me would be ENTIRE day. LOL P.s. I love Panera Bread food.

  4. we are in town at the same time! too bad you're sick :(

  5. SO SO GLAD we got to hang out so much when you were in town! :D
