Thank You Very Much! Ohio Edition!

It's Free Therapy Day!! That's right, it's Thursday, which means it's the Thank You Very Much day. The way it works is that you take out all your frustrations on people/things that peeved you off during the week and thank them in a very sarcastic way, for being who or what they are/doing what they did.

*Thank You VERY much to this car for cutting us off and causing my hubby to have even MORE road rage....Can he possibly have MORE???  I should have called the cops simply because you caused a car ride full of cussing and yelling from him!

*Thank You VERY much to the toilets at Christmas Run Park in Wooster, OH.  Not only did you freeze my buns once but since I'm almost 8 months preggo you froze them TWICE!  I held it after that because I wasn't going to let you win a third time! Seriously??  Who makes STEEL toilets?!?!?

*Thank You Very Much to Wooster, OH for reminding me that I really do LOVE where I live!  I think I can only handle the 5 1/2 hour drive once a year!

*And Last by not Least, Thank You to the Toledo Zoo for not posting anything on your website warning visitors that half of your exhibits are currently under construction so the animals aren't available to see!  I don't know how many empty spots we walked by but it was really really annoying!!

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......

Thank You Very Much!

**Thank you very much to Mother Nature for making it so hot and humid so Cady wants to go swimming and then leaving me with a daily reminder of lobster like skin!!  OUCH!

**Thank you very much to my wonderful unborn son who is keeping me up all night practicing for the baby Olympics!

**Thank you very much to my legs for continuously growing hair, I'm convinced at a faster than normal rate, when they know that I cant bend down to shave them anymore!!! 

**Thank you very much to whoever made the Barbie movie that Cady has watched over a dozen times and she hasnt even had it a week yet!  I know all the words to the songs already and they get stuck in my head....So really.....thank you.....
