My Week in Pictures

After this week, I'm all tuckered out.

Speaking of tuckered, I'm so excited about yesterday's birth of Mr. Tucker Moss Duvall. Ty and I have been joking about the things we'll tell our kids regarding Tucker one day.

"Just because Tuck skipped swim practice doesn't mean you get to."

Or, "Well, Tucker gets to do those things because he's older than you. When you're his age ..."

I love to think about those little things that I know we'll be saying one day!

Tucker's dad, Moss, and Ty go back very far and got into lots of trouble together all the way through their college days.

Heaven help us! I'm now praying we have all girls!

Here are some other interesting photos from my week:

My brother Taylor went to the Tyler Zoo this week, and at some point, he came across this mug and thought he would send a picture of it to me. My reply: "Story of my life."

He did not buy it for me, however, I can only imagine what it would have been like to walk into my Monday morning conference call with that mug in hand.

Ty came in limping one day and I asked him what was wrong. He said his knee hurt where he'd been stung by a wasp the previous day. He put on some shorts (yes, he's wearing shorts in this picture) and showed his knee to me.

I freaked out a little. From the sight of it, I thought we might lose a leg in the middle of the night. But the leg hung on and the swelling is slowly going down. Of course, even with it looking as bad as it did, Ty didn't want to seek medical attention. He wanted to go eat at Carrabba's.

I found this picture of an outdoor cabana and think I will use it for backyard inspiration. Ty and I have wanted to add a covered structure to the backyard, and I think this has the right look. Instead of white, I'll probably use a natural wood finish. Top it with wisteria and twinkle lights ... instant party!

However, cabana is very low on the list.

I did Painting with a Twist last night with my sister-in-law, Mandy, and mother-in-law, Margaret. After seeing last year's Christmas card, I refuse to be photographed with these two. I always look gigantor next to them. Not to mention, Mandy is weeks away from having a baby and you can't even tell.

My self esteem is shot.

And, to add insult to injury, my painting is the worst one!!

On that all-inspiring note, have a great weekend!

Cindy, you guys are going to have a lot of fun! It's very high energy and fast paced. Have a glass of wine and you'll feel your inner artist emerge!
