1) One of my good friends, K, got engaged on Friday! We met in high school, went to college together, she became my little sister in KD and now we party together each year in our Mardi Gras Organization. I love her to pieces and am so glad she found D. They are great together and I wish them a lifetime of happiness. They will be getting married in December at the same church A and I were married in...almost 3 years ago. She will also have her reception at the same place I had mine. I can't wait to celebrate with them! Let the parties begin!
2) My sweet little boy is sick again. We have had a rough 6 months filled with ear infections and stomach bugs. This time it is his stomach. I just can't seem to figure out what is going on here.He was well for 2 weeks, but prior to that he had this same thing for a week. He's running around like his normal wild man self, he hasn't run a fever, but we are going on a week of...well to put it somewhat ladylike...the runs. We went to the doc on Monday and he checked out great. I was worried about his ears again, but they are clear. I dropped off the 2nd "sample" this morning so they can test for a few things. (If you have ever had the pleasure of collecting a sample...well let me tell you...not the most pleasant experience, but anything for my little guy. ) Hopefully we'll get to the bottom of this soon. The doc really wasn't sure what was going on. He ruled out some bad stuff based on blood results, so that is good. We're off whole milk for now (drinking lactaid) and we're taking probiotics 2 times a day per Dr. J. Have any of you experienced anything like this with your little ones? I feel like I'm missing something here and it is driving me bonkers.

4) A friend emailed me today and wants to throw a horse themed 1st bday party. I sent her these links:
