Yesterday, I was talking to a girl on facebook who I went to high school with, Christa is her name. We weren't really good friends in high school because she was a year younger than me and we didn't know each other very well. But, then we both started working at this place:
It's an ice cream shop kind of like a dairy queen only better! It's in Siloam Springs, Arkansas, where I grew up. Anyway, when I was talking to Christa yesterday, I found out that she now lives THREE miles from me and I thought that was SO neat because Zach and I live in Oklahoma now. She also told me all about her little girl, BAILEY who is 19 months old! How weird is that? So, we have planned a playdate next week for our "Baileys" to play! :)

In other news, I received a package in the mail yesterday. It was the ONLY thing in the mailbox and the return address had been covered up by the post office. I knew what it was though and I was SUPER excited to get it! Want to know what it was and how to get your own? CLICK HERE
I don't think I'm ever going to take it off! I really love it! THANKS GIRLS!

And last (and least, haha)
I JUST started watching Jon and Kate + 8 again. I watched the season finale last season and then I watched the season premiere on Monday night. I was VERY sad to see how bad their marriage has become. Don't get me wrong, I have ALWAYS thought that Kate is the biggest (excuse me, please) B****. She is horribly rude to her husband, the babysitter, the crew, and pretty much everyone she comes in contact with. However, something really upset me about the fact that they might get divorced. Even though I've never met them, Kate actually makes me a little uncomfortable! She is SO rude that I feel embarrassed for her sometimes. Still, though, they do have 8 (well 7, Mady is kind of spoiled and "tantrum-ish") adorable children. I keep asking myself "why do you care so much?" All I know is that they have exploited themselves, their children, their home, and their community. We have seen SO much of them and it's just sad that it all might end. How sad for their precious children, how sad for my friend Meredith who just can't get enough ;), how sad that as Kate said I thought we could rise above that and beat the divorce rate for parents of multiples. (by the way that is NOT her EXACT quote). Anyway, If Jon is cheating on her he is a HORRIBLE man and if she were not so downright rude, maybe things would be better. I just don't understand how someone can want to control EVERYTHING. Still, I prayed for them last night because I imagine everyone wants to talk about them but no one wants to do anything (considering 9.8 million people watched Monday's show). So, I just asked God to restore their marriage to what it should be for them, and their babies! I have also wondered... is this all for publicity???

Toodles... I think I've made this QUITE long enough :)

I watched Jon and Kate Monday too! I am a HUGE fan. I am not sure what to think about the whole situation though. She is mean to him at times, but I am sure he knew that when he married her. But you also have to remember that they only tape about 20 hours per week. We don't see it all. I am hoping it all works out in the end as well.
That is so awesome about your friend...crazy world we live in!
