what a week

well, since the last time i posted we've been pretty busy. last thursday night jackie and i went to the bulldog basketball game. the dawgs won! here is a pic of my co-worker, andy, shooting a half-court shot to win a year's worth of smoothies. he didn't make it but the other guy did!

friday night is mine and rett's date night. he works late pretty much every other night so we made a deal that fridays would be mine. we went to eat at wingstop (my choice!) and then attended the lady techster game (my choice, again!) since the techster head coach was "let go" the new interim head coach is former techster theresa weatherspoon. she's a legend around the tac so this game was a pretty big deal. here's a really blurry pic of her during her first coaching gig!saturday was valentine's day. normally rett and i don't celebrate this holiday. i think it's a little over-rated. why do we need a day to tell our loved ones that we love them? however, i do always buy rett a card and this year he got two. one from me and one from olivia! i awoke to the smell of bacon (my FAVORITE) around 8 sat morning. rett had gotten up and gone to the grocery store without me waking up. he cooked blueberry pancakes and bacon! YUM! i didn't take a pic of our breakfast but i wish i had. after breakfast we worked on the new office. the below pic is of the "built-ins" rett built for the new office. he built them and in this pic is in the process of painting them. i'll post an after pic once they are done. i did help with these... rett let me use his new nail gun. i'll admit, that was pretty fun! i also helped pull the wood through the saw. so, my sweat also went into this project. now, i'm still using the excuse the pregnant people can't paint b/c of the fumes. i'm sure rett is ready to put the paint brush down! only two rooms left after this one!sunday was a pretty big day for the hamby household. rett and i became bonified members of trinity umc. my parents and jackie came to church with us to watch. afterwards we came back to our house had had lunch. mom made a fabulous king ranch chicken casserole and garlic bread. she also brought a homemade pound cake. YUM. i didn't get any pics of us at the church although i had planned on it. maybe we can sneak in one night and do that! mom brought us our yearly valentines present. i got candy, a candle and a coffee mug. rett got homemade cookies. and olivia got her very first valentine's present. mom and dad brought her a bib and some tech booties. the bid is special...mamaw made it while she was pregnant with mom. so, i'll use it and then pass it down to jenny and jackie so they can use it. the booties are too cute! here are the pics!

yesterday (monday) was my monthly doc appt. everything was fine. olivia's heartrate was 128 (i think that's beats per minute). i go tomorrow for my sugar test. let's all pray that i pass that. i do not want to do the 3 hour test that comes if you fail this one! i go back in 3 weeks at which point we'll schedule my last ultrasound. after that appt (march 9, if anyone cares) i'll start going every two weeks. holy moly. every two weeks. i guess we're getting close to the end since i'll be going so often!

today mom was in ruston and picked up another little "happy" for olivia. it's a pink onsie that says "trend setter" on it. so cute! i haven't taken a pic b/c i'm too lazy to get up and do it. but trust me. sooo cute! mom and i went to dinner at my favorite mexican place tonight and now i'm home doing this. i'm pretty sure that catches you up on our week.

oh, one more pic. in my last post i wrote about how i prop my feet up at home. here's a pic. just thought it was funny!hope everyone has a great week!


  1. Jessie,
    I had no idea Rett was Mr. Bob the Builder. Those cabinets look great!

  2. Jessie,
    I read your comment about the Lillian Grace painting. I am so glad you liked it! I would love to talk about doing one for you. What is your e-mail address?
