Shasterly Love

As many of you probably know, my big sister, Adrienne, was greeted not so graciously with a stroke about a month ago. Following this awful set back, some of the main side effects were not being able to walk unless with assistance, she couldn't feel sensations on the left side of her body, was seeing double, and my favorite, only sweats and cries on one side of her body.
She has been working her hiney off in therapy and is well on her way to 100% recovery! "A "is now walking without assistance (still a little wobbly), is reading a lot which helps her vision, and the best thing-she is back in Birmingham and starting work tomorrow! Until her vision gets a little better she will need a chauffeur, so she is staying with Tayphill and me until she feels more comfortable out on her own. The main thing that slows her down now is all of the medication she is taking. It makes her really sleepy. She is taking blood thinners and a whole bunch of other meds I have no idea how to pronounce. She had a very rare type of stroke that caused her to have hiccups, which in turn caused her to have heart burn and acid reflux, which is caused in part by the blood thinner. Talk about complicated. All I know-she is a trooper!!

Keep Adrienne in your thoughts and prayers as she gets back into the swing of things, and back to normalcy!
Some of her get well cards!

:: Planning it all out ::

If you are like me, planning out your week is super easy.....if you're planning your wardrobe. Meal plans on the other hand, never have been my strong suit. I found this helpful little sheet on my new favorite website, Pinterest. Not only are these sheets helpful, but they are cute to look at, too!

 Click on the picture to open in a new screen and print one for yourself!




These came from my new favorite blog

Lola's newest trick

This morning I sit down to eat my bowl of cereal and drink my coffee. Lola comes and sits down next to me which is usually nothing out of the ordinary. 






This morning she sits a little differently...

Just Sitting on My Couch

Finally, I am just sitting here....We have been going and going and going for the past 3 weeks and it feels good to just sit here. Our first road trip was to Guntersville for a wedding, then to the beach with my fam, and then to Austin to see Taylor's fam and friends from home while celebrating the 4th. I finally can see a little tan on my skin, and Lola has had more love in the past 2 weeks than she knows what to do with!
Now that we have been back for a couple of days, guess what Tayphill did? Yep, planned another trip. This boy can't sit still. So here we come Chicago, thanks to Southwest and their awesome ticket prices :)

I really slacked on my picture taking these last couple of weeks, but here are a couple I managed to snap.

Downtown in Austin with Margaret!
