I can’t believe I haven’t updated in over 2 weeks. I’ve been super busy, and to be completely honest, not in the mood to blog AT ALL. I’ve been avoiding blogs all together. I must say that I’ve missed it though, but my heart was just not wanting to reveal its feelings and issues that I’ve been dealing with. And we know that when I write, I tend to get personal, sometimes too personal and too open.

In case you wanted to see a little bit of my cousin’s wedding in Florida, here is the video I made. I wasn’t intending on making this so the footage is kinda terrible, but it still turned out half decent. The wedding was fabulous though. It was suppose to be a beach wedding, but it rained all day, so they had to change the plans last minute and do the ceremony in the reception hall, but it was still gorgeous and romantic. Congrats to Bethany and John Eric!

Anyways, life is good. We are almost 100% in AL. Alex finally finished his training and is officially a district manager now! Wewt! I’m excited for him, but the long hours ahead of him and opening 2 stores in less 1 month during the holiday season is going to be rough. He just informed me that on his birthday (Jan 18), that the 4th store will be opening in Northport. That means he will be working from 7am til midnight, if not longer, on his bday. Poor guy. I know it’s going to be worth it in the end though. After these first few months, things will get a lot better.

Someone buy our house! Or rent it! Because it’s so stressful to have it just sit there empty while we pay the effin mortgage payment every month. I hate it. I sure hope it sells sooner rather than later… I’d hate to have to wait a year or more (which is average in the market these days). ;(

And Adaleigh… gosh, something’s gotten into that child. She’s got major separation anxiety lately with me. Maybe its because she’s been with me 24/7 for the past 2-3 weeks without any babysitters, grandparents, etc. HELP! She’s always been a good sleeper, and has been great at going to sleep on her own at night, but the past 4 nights have been H-E-double hockey stick! She will scream her lungs out for hours if I let her… she won’t go to sleep without me. It’s so weird. I know some of you might completely disagree with me, but I used the cry-it-out method when she was younger, and it totally worked. She learned how to soothe herself to sleep and was always fine. But this week, her cries were different. They were like “I’m gonna die if you leave the room” kind of cries. Sometimes to the point where she has trouble breathing. So, for the past 4 nights, she’s fell asleep in my arms and then after a while I put her in her bed. Granted, I looove the extra cuddle time I get with her and my heart just melts when I hear her say “hug” or “hold” with her little finger pointed right at me, but I sure hope this a phase, I very short one. Any advice from you moms out there would be appreciated! 😉

Meanwhile, today I tried to snap some pictures of Adaleigh on our balcony… she didn’t want anything to do with it. BUT I managed to get one good one. I think it’s Christmas card worthy.

I love her ❤

And her new obsession is this CareBears DVD that my mom gave her. She absolutely adores it and always asks for the “bears”. She would watch it all day if I’d let her. Bad thing is… our TV is still in LaGrange so she has to watch it on my laptop. Good thing is… I can bring the laptop to whichever room I’m in and she will sit or lay on the floor quietly. Like this afternoon when I was putting away the laundry, she laid down in the middle of the hallway and was a happy camper for about 15 minutes until I was done.

That’s all folks. I’m exhausted and ready for bed. Night!
