A few random things and a prayer request

We'll start out with the prayer request...

I've been following this blog for a few months now. Nate and Tricia (who has CF) had their little girl 15+ weeks early. They have been living at Duke Medical Center since a little before Gwyneth was born preparing for Tricia to receive a double lung transplant. Gwyneth is 12 weeks now and doing very well. TRICIA IS IN SURGERY RECEIVING HER NEW LUNGS RIGHT NOW! Nate asked for prayer for these things: Please be praying for the staff and surgeons as well as the donor family! Also, be praying for my parents and Tricia's dad and others who are making the drive here right now.
And now for the random...

Tonight I went to Wal-mart to pick up a few things for dinner-I can't go anywhere without 'running' through the baby section. I picked up this super cute little swimsuit for Landree.

It was only $8.86! What a steal! It's hard to see the details, but there are even a few sequins on the bubbles coming out of the fish's mouth. We have a few other swimsuits, but I know we will be in pool a lot this summer and I just couldn't pass it up. Momma got Landree a super cute cover up at Target a few weeks ago and we are going to have it monogrammed. Kim gave us the idea. She got one for her peanut, Kate. Momma got Landree the seersucker dress and are having it monogrammed too! Thanks Kim for sharing your super chic/cheap finds! We love them!
And tonight after Landree went to bed I did a quick bit of decorating. Momma got this wall decals for me at market. I put this one up over our bedroom door. I think it looks so sharp! I love it. I have another one to put up that says "Home is where you're story begins."

And the highlight of my day...(it doesn't take much to make me happy) was finding this dress for Landree at Target for only 12.58. Landree is the flower girl in a wedding in May and the bride had this dress on her list of options. Our store was out and I could still order it online (for full price plus shipping), but we went to another Target today and they had it on sale! YEA! I never imagined I would have paid 13 dollars for a flower girl dress! And last but not least, Denise tagged me to list 10 little known facts about me (I've also seen this with people listing quirks) since I'm not quirky at all :) I'm going to have to think about this one. I haven't forgotten Denise.

Glad you could get the cover-ups. Aren't they cute?

I love your idea of monogramming the cover up ...I might copy that! We always get our cover ups at Target. Actually, Emma always gets Hannah's from last year and Hannah gets a new one. If we monogram them we won't be able to do the hand me down trick, but it's such a cute idea! I'm going to email you the trick for coloring in only part of a picture. It's so easy!
