Getting closer...

Time is passing so quickly and lots of things are getting closer:

-End of school! I am loving my class so much and will miss them next year!

-We are really trying to soak up our time in Huntsville! Our time to move is getting closer and leave here. We have been to the Huntsville Stars minor league games, the Whistlestop barbque fest, movies with friends, cookouts, etc. We are so sad to leave here!

Here we are at Whistlestop downtown. We were with our big group of Huntsville friends, but somehow I didnt get a picture of all of us! :(

-We are getting so much closer to moving to Auburn! Ryan moves in June and will live in a hotel until we rent or sell our house. We had decided we were going to rent it out becuase we have people knocking down our door to rent...BUT we had 3 people come see the house yesterday, someone is coming BACK today, and a new person Monday. PRAY it works out! We would LOVE to sell it! We are excited to move to AU in such a short time. Ryan just called and said we are soon to be members of the Auburn University Club! They have golf, swim, TENNIS, and dining! I am so excited! Come visit us!

It was fun doing it with friends and we motivated each other at the end to keep goign! Ryan, Joey, and Finley came to cheer us on at the finish line! Then we went to the pool and saw Bridesmaids! Hilarious!!!! Great weekend!

We had a wonderful mother's day with our mom's in Huntsville. They so graciously drove up here to see us. Ryan and I both cooked a meal for them and our dad's got to join in too :) We made chicken kabobs, salad, and dirty brown rice. We also made a chocolate chip pound cake with ice cream for them. We gave them earrings we bought for them in Puerto Rico and had fun spending time with family we love so much. We appreciate our moms so much! They are very different from each other and we love them for that! Between the 2 of them, we have the best moms in the world! Happy Mother's Day!

Dad and I went and got sale balloons for our open house! Pray it sells soon PLEASE! We had 2 families comes yesterday and one wants to lease to purchase. We are going to hold out and hopefully someone else will buy it!

I woke up with one of the worst emails ever to wake up to today. One of my best friends, Natalie, informed me that our friend, Austin Lacey, had passed away last night. I do not know Austin very well, but know he was a great man, loved by many. His wife, Haley and I have been friends since college but I do not stay in touch with her as much. Regardless, my heart is so heavy today for her. I attended their wedding one month before Ryan and I got married. 9 months after they were married, Austin her husband, was daignosed with cancer. He survived 9 more months. I post this for one reason only, but to pray. Please pray for Austin's parents, Haley, and their family and friends. I can not imagine what they are going through. Our God is strong, sovereign, and mighty. His plan is perfect. Sometimes its so hard to not question why he would do this to such a sweet couple, but I pray and hope they rest in His comfort.
