so much to do!
Okay, time to be honest! I am overwhelmed! My house is in shambles and we are moving out of here on Thursday. If you were to see my house today, you would think there is no way we could be ready by Thursday morning. However, if you know my husband, you also know that it is possible to be ready by then.

Today I am thirty-one years old. It does not really feel like my birthday and I think I would have forgotten if it weren't for my sweet friends, family and husband calling in the early morning hours. I have to say that my favorite call so far has been from my friend's daughter, Kylie. She sang to me! There is nothing more precious than hearing a three year old sing!

Happy Birthday Miss Amanda, Happy Birthday Miss Amanda, Happy Birthday Miss Amanda, Happy Birthday Miss Amanda."

She decided to put my name in every line!

Tonight we are going to dinner with my family and the kids are so exited because they think more cake is involved. We had a celebration with J's family for lunch yesterday and one with my Dad last night. So far, we have had two cakes! And I know there will be another cake for me in Austin. I have already been asked what kind of cake I want!!!

I am super excited about the move but struggling right now with getting it all done and being a mommy too! :) I could use some prayers for sure!

Happy Birthday my dear friend!!!!! I am glad to hear you've had a sweet birthday thus far....albeit stressed! You will get everything done - just pray without ceasing and take it moment by moment.

And try to stay focused on "the prize" - the move, the finished product, the beginning of a new chapter!!! :)

Love and ((Hugs)) to you!!! AND - Happy 31st Birthday!

Happy Birthday sweet friend. Sorry, I said 32 on the phone. I don't want to rush it for you.
I know you will be ready Thursday. I have no doubt! Have a good week.
