This totally made my day

When I got to work this morning, I had a sweet note on my desk from Maria's 10-year old daughter. It was written to me & Jarrett:
She plays with Jarrett all the time & loves to kiss & snuggle him. I feel so lucky to be working in a place where his babysitter is on-site & the kids on the property & of my co-worker love Jarrett. Such a blessing.

Also, I was proud of a few Target finds. I got this 5-pack of baby onesies 6-9 months for only $6.92. I love that they aren't plain white & they have graphics & bright colors!
I also got this cute little summer outfit 9 months, for $4.48! He wore this today & he looked so cute in it.
I sent this text to my mom yesterday saying "We can't wait to see you Nana!" That's right! My mom is coming to stay with us (mostly Jarrett) from June 29th - July 7th. I miss my mom SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO much! I really wish she could've been with me last week b/c it was so rough, but I know she would've if she could've. I feel like I have little or NO friends out here. I don't know why I'm having such a hard time meeting friends. But, I feel like I have nobody & it gets me really depressed sometimes. I wish I had a close girlfriend to workout with, (bargain) shop with, go see movies, etc. I don't really have anyone like that here & I miss it. My parents have been so good to us. I really would love to move closer to home someday. Anyways, we are so excited that Nana is coming to visit us for a week. We just CAN'T wait!



  1. That's the sweetest letter ever! And woo hoo for Target bargains!

    I know how you feel about not having a lot of friends. We've lived in KC for almost a year now and haven't really met anyone. Granted we haven't tried super hard...but some weekends I wish we had people to call up and do things with!

  2. Bonnie, get involved in a church, or a "mommy & me" type group. You'll find friends that way. It's so hard moving into a new state! Hang in there!

  3. I know what you mean Bonnie!! I wish we lived closer so we could hang out =)

    I am thinking of joining a Mom's they have some in your area too?

  4. I am just catching up on your blog because I've been out of town. It looks like you've had a rough couple of weeks. I'm glad your baby boy is feeling better.
    I joined a mom's group (Mothers and More - it's a national group) and have met some great people through that. I've moved 3 times in 9 years so I know how hard it is to make good friends. It will happen in time!

  5. I definitely agree with the mom's groups. Now that I am going to be staying home full time with the 2 little ones, I am looking into joining one - its so important to be with others that are going through similar things and understand what you are going through. Try and you can specify your area by zip.

    Awesome bargains! I have turned into such a bargain shopper - makes me so happy to find a great sale! And those onesies you bought - we have the same ones in long sleeves - they are my favorite ones!

  6. What a cute letter.

    Awesome finds...I love Target!

    I am super happy for you that your mommy will be in town hanging with you!!

  7. What a precious letter. You should frame it! I found your blog (and your sister's) through Summer B! I am in love with that picture of you and your sweetie boy!!

  8. such a sweet letter! and love the target finds! you just might've made me need to take a trip there today because baby girl has outgrown all of her onesies!

    have fun with your mom!

  9. What a precious note! She must be a sweetheart.
    I feel so bad for you not having a close girlfriend and your twin being so far away. Of course our twins are our best friends but when you have distance between you it must really be tough. My husband told me when he married me he knew we would never move because I wouldn't leave my twin. I agree with the mommy groups. Perhaps there is a nice mom out there wanting to meet some one to buddy with.
    It will be so nice having your mom to spend time with. I'm sure she's ready to love on that baby! He's a doll.
