During our transition from Noah's house to our apartment, Avery and I traveled allllll over the place.  We spent Mon-Thur in Tyler with my momma (Nonni) boxing up as much as we possibly could to prep for the wknd when Brian and I would be loading up the moving truck.  We worked HARD, but of course had a super great time hanging out too :)

Thurs AM we drove to the Shug together so that I could meet up with the SUPERAWESOME Thors who sold me their Expy for super cheap.  Major blessing.  Thank you guys SO incredibly much for being so generous and gracious.  I'm sure it didn't hurt that you got to sneak in some Avery time that night :)  We love you!!

Fri Ave & I got up super early to head BACK to Tyler to meet the sprinkler repair dude.  It was the ONLY issue found in our home inspection (sweet!) and we needed it taken care of ASAP!  We just hung out while the guys worked hard on the sprinkler system (which they fixed perfectly, btw), packed some more boxes, enjoyed a LOVELY visit from Kylee (who we miss SO much!), and then waited on daddy to arrive.

Now to the wknd... B, Ave & I spent the wknd in Lufkin for the LHS 10yr REUNION!! Um...SO much fun.  I was more excited about it than Brian was to begin with...but we both had a SUPER terrific time.  We even made some cool new friends who live Frisco and have a 9-mo old!  I'm pretty pumped at the prospect of new hang out buddies.  Oh...AND they're sports lovers.  What more could we ask for?? So after an incredibly entertaining weekend of high school football, family picnics, zoo excursions, and retro dance parties & nanaandpoppa time...

Nana & Poppa got this INCREDIBLY ADORABLE giraffe suit for Aves while we were in L-town.  Um...pretty cute, no?  Thx Nana & Poppa!  Avery loved spending so much time w/ you a few wks ago!!

...B and I headed our separate ways for the wk AGAIN! :(  B had corporate training so Ave & I spent a few days in the good ol' SL.  How much fun did we have?  I'll let the pics do the talking...

We love Aunt Loober!
Ginny & Cindy finally got to meet Ave and EVEN taught her how to click her tongue. Impressive huh? 
One of my FAV old roomies: Elizabeth :)  Love you EBO!!  Thx for coming to SL to visit!
Great Gran LOVES her some Averton.
Jackie keeps telling me how much Avery likes her.  She must have somehow missed the fact that Ave was screaming the entire time she was in Jackie's lap :) Sweet nonetheless.
Nana snuggles :)
Okay, so thats not Ave in the pic. Apparently I didn't take one with Nickster & Kimbo, but I couldn't leave them out!  So here they are with their nephew...just imagine that's Avery's cute little face :)
My babygirl & my Moo :)  2 of my faves in life.
Jacqueline loving on my munchkin.  Miss you sexster! ps- when Ave can read I won't call you that anymore :)
happy mommy.  cute tatertot.
I was melting the WHOLE time these two played together.  Scarlett is pretty much the greatest sharer EVER.  SUCH a sweet little munchkin.  Love you Scarlett!!  and your momma!
Uncle Rileton loves Averton so much that he came all the way to The Shug for <24hrs to see her!  We love you bro...and we miss you Reidster!
From Big Poppy.  YUM.

Thanks for the serenades Riles.  Ave loved it :)
Nonni love.
Big Poppy love.  Is this not the cutest thing in life?
Love you momma!  You're mosdef the best Nonni on the face of the earth!! Aves misses you!

So now we are lovvving being all together again and in our own place.  Although I'm working HARD at getting everything unpacked, I have a feeling we'll be living out of boxes for quite some time... I DO think though, that I am going to LOVE getting back into apartment life.  Sounds weird, but I LOVE having 8million next door neighbors!

Happy Thurs, my friends :)
