We had a busy day today... Josh and I spent a total of 4 hours purchasing blinds for the new house at JC Penny's. I'd never think to go to Penny's for home interior stuff like blinds, but they have it all! They are having a HUGE sale this week, PLUS today was an additional 20% off! We got all the blinds for the new house for way less than half of what Blinds To Go recently quoted us. I love finding a good deal!

After all that shopping we went golfing too. We went around 4pm, so by then the weather was perfect. It was a nice way to get out and enjoy the afternoon.

Me being silly...
Isn't he cute :)
I've also added a button to my blog that I asked Josh to make for me. Feel free to add the button on the right to your page as a way for us to remember and honor our precious Green Beans by.

Hope you all have a good week!


  1. Well, aren't you two too cute! Looks like a fabulous day for a fabulous couple!

    I too, am quite the bargain hunter. Glad you found a deal and look forward to pics of the new digs!

  2. Oh, how I wish I would have known about the sale!! Gotta keep me in the know, sista!! I'm snagging the button now!!

  3. I am so happy to see you smiling and out and about enjoying the beautiful day. I have been praying especially hard for you since you haven't blogged in a while, and I often check Josh's blog to see if you two are going alright. I am going to be attending the March of Dimes rally here in college station and I am marching for the Green Babys! I will send you the link when I finish building the profile. I hope you have a wonderul week. :)

    We too bought a bunch of stuff from JcP - love our really large single sliding silk blackout curtain for our extra high/long sliding glass doors. You cannot beat the price or the quality.

    My Story
    Welcome to my life…

    Over the past three years it has been flipped upside down. I am 31 years old, and married to my hubby of three years, Josh. We have 4 beautiful angel babies, who are fondly known as our “Green Beans”. The first of my quads, Heidi, held on as long as she could and was born on January 31, 2009 after pPROMing at 17 weeks. A few weeks later, I pPROM’d with my sweet Lily. Lily, Paige, and Rylan were all born at 22 weeks on February 23, 2009. Just after being released from the hospital empty handed, I returned with a high fever and infection. Two of the nights I spent in the hospital that week, I honestly thought I was going to die. It was the sickest and most hopeless I’ve ever been. I’m pretty sure my diagnosis was a broken heart.

    Our journey to becoming parents has had its share of happiness and heartbreaks. I got through every day by staying close to Josh, friends and family, blogging, and relying on God that my future will be bright. All the love and support I’ve gotten has greatly helped me manage……I am alive and well, and want to be my absolute best as a result of this.

    On May 1st 2011, we welcomed our sweet baby girl, Taylor, into this world. She is our miracle baby and brings so much joy and happiness in our lives. She is such a gift from God.

    I have come out of all of this with a better appreciation of life. I hope to make the best of this situation by helping others who will experience a similar loss.
