Blog Overhaul!

So on a whim I decided to completely overhaul my blog! It took me ALL DAY-(NO JOKE!) to get it done BUT I finished it with flying colors and I'm really pleased with it. What do ya'll think!?

Please keep us in your prayers tomorrow, the National Weather Services says we're going to have the WORST severe weather outbreak in a LONG time tomorrow and the potential for violent/damaging tornadoes that will stay on the ground for several miles. I hope and pray that the strength of these storms decrease, but please keep us in mind!

My friend Kara from The V Quartet is SO close to giving birth to her second child/daughter Addison! I am SO EXCITED FOR HER! I hope she has a smooth delivery and things go well for Miss Addison's debute into the world!

Here are my link-ups for the week...

Paper Heart Camera; From Below
may21-86
Over the weekend as I had mentioned in my last post we went to Cave City, KY where we explored Mammoth Cave and went to Guntown Mountain. This photo was taken inside of the "Saloon" while watching the Can-Can girls. We were watching "from below" since they were up on stage. I love how it looks like they're really getting into their "number" here :)

I caught my son in the middle of his tantrum he threw today. The faces he makes really ARE crazy!! This can be some blackmail material in the future ;) but I wanted to use this today :)
