July....you sure have crept up on me!

So, its July 13th....I SWEAR I just looked at the calendar and it was still June!  Where is the time going!?!?!  IF you saw my Wordless Wed post a couple weeks back you saw my calendar for this month and things have only been adding up!  So a little update on whats been going on in the Hightree Home.....

So the first weekend of July was kinda slow, which was nice!  My sister and I painted our bathroom and we took Cady to see fireworks (which she slept through!!) but other than that we just stayed home and relaxed!  It really is the one and only weekend this month where we didnt really have much to do!

The second weekend of July presented to be an interesting one!  So, I haven't really mentioned it before, but I am an Ordained Minister.....I know, its kinda random, but one night I was sitting online and got bored and decided I would look up what it took to become an ordained minister to perform weddings!  I didn't really have any intentions of officiating weddings but thought it would kinda of be interesting to bring up in a conversation....lol.  I warned you that it was kinda random!  Well, Last weekend I performed my first wedding!!  Long story short a friend of mine on Facebook was having trouble finding a minister and I just jokingly commented that I could legally do it and she asked me to!  So, Friday was filled with the rehearsal and Saturday was all wedding!  One can only imagine what people were thinking when they saw an almost 8 month pregnant lady walking up to the wedding saying they were the minister!  But trust me I'm TOTALLY legal!  I have to say it was a very memorable wedding!  Not only was it my first, but it poured down rain when the wedding was supposed to start for almost 20 minutes!  Did I mention that the wedding was an outdoor one by the water??  Oh yeah, did I also mention that it ONLY rained where the wedding was being held!  God was truly there watching over everyone and showing that he is always in control no matter what! I had such a great time doing this wedding....who knows, maybe it will become a side job!
Here is a pic from the wedding...Can you see me???  I promise thats really me! 

After all of the excitment of the wedding on Friday and Saturday my mom threw me a "Baby Sprinkle" to welcome Nathan!  I am so blessed to have the amount of support that I have!  More people came than I ever thought (she held it at my house and it was standing room by the end!) and Nathan was blessed with so many great items!  It was fun talking with everyone and seeing Cady really get into opening her baby brothers presents! She wanted to pose for the camera, but she didnt want to smile!  What a funny girl! 

Well, this post is slowly becoming a mile long and I dont want to bore you too much!  But dont be sad...this week I will be getting ready for our 4 day trip to Ohio (over 5 hours with a pregnant mama and a 2 year old!) and next week is my birthday and my sisters "Girls Day before her Wedding" so I will have PLENTY to blog about....UGH!  Im feeling exhausted just thinking about it! 

Until then......
