The Weekend

Although this weekend was not a super restful one, it certainly was fun and didn't seem to fly by which is always nice! We were so excited about Saturday because it was Brett's first race! He has been running with Pudge many mornings at 5:00 A.M.! Brett is athletic but never really been a runner so this has been a huge sacrifice and I have been so proud of him! He decided to do his first race, the Azalea Trail Run, and not just the 5K, he went for the 10K! He and Pudge ran along with many of our friends!! 
Beautiful morning to start us off!
Warming up.... :) 
Basil ran his first race and did so well!!
Armbruster fam!!
My boy and I before...I was so sad I didn't run but probably would have struggled! I haven't been running consistently unfortunately! Need to start back up!
So many happy people ready to run!
There they are! 
Josh finishing incredibly fast!
Here comes Pudge!
There's my guy!! Finishing it up with Matt!
Good job boys!!
So proud of you!
Anna and Sam
The Estis fam ready for the fun run!!
Carter's so cool in his glasses!

It was such a fun day! After we were done Brett and Jeff went to buy our plants for our garden and on Sunday morning they planted them! We are so excited about having some fresh veggies in our backyard!!
So now, after some watering, we will hopefully have some large tomatoes, red, green, orange bell pepper, jalapeƱos, sweet basil, rosemary, zucchini, squash, and onion!

I hope your weekend was as pretty as ours! :)

Around Here In March

I cannot believe that we are almost through the month of March! Seems crazy but I am happy cause it means closer to Spring Break and then Summer! With the weather being as beautiful as it is, it is hard being inside! A lot has been going on in the month of March. 

I did this craft project....
Tutorial here

I hung these new prints in my kitchen! Love these colors!
Printables found here

Also, I have had a couple of neat opportunities lately. A friend of ours asked me to take some pictures of her son at his soccer game. She had seen some pictures I had taken and wanted me to come so that she and her husband wouldn't have to! I was happy to oblige and happy to learn more and experiment with my camera! Here are a few shots from the night. (They won the game by the way in double overtime! :) ) 

A couple of weeks ago Brett decided he wanted to build something. :) He decided on a coffee table and bought the wood and put it together in a couple of days. It turned out really great and I am excited to paint it soon!! 
Hey handsome
Good job husband...

We have also begun the process of starting a garden. Mangs and Pudge who live across the street really wanted to and I did. Brett is not a huge fan of veggies (we are working on that! :) ) so he didn't really care too much but we are using our backyard! Brett and Pudge built some boxes and they have been filled with soil. We are hoping to begin planting some veggies this weekend! I am really excited about this! 
I'll keep you updated on the progress! 

We are still constantly making our house a home and we added some new curtains that I ordered. 

This past weekend after finding out this baby was a girl, we went and helped these two register at Target! Well, not really helped but kept them company! SO READY FOR BABY J!!

Other than those happenings we have been keeping busy. Life seems to never slow down! We are learning lots about patience and trusting the Lord. I am learning that my husband is probably the best leader for me and encourager. He is so patient. I mean, I know everyone thinks their husband is great but really, he has been my biggest supporter during these last few months when things have been hard. 

Also, yesterday a year ago, was the day I said YES to him! 

What a year it has been!! 
I made the best decision of my life a year ago! 
I LOVE YOU so so much Brett and am so thankful that you are my husband!

Hope your week is going well! It's WEDNESDAY!! :)

It's A...............

This past weekend we finally were able to find out if Baby Jacobs was a boy or girl. On Friday family and some friends gathered for the big reveal! We were all so excited! We even skyped in Kara, Emma Kate,  Eric, Linds, and V! 

Pudge and Mangs certainly planned things out well. They had a scavenger hunt set-up all over mom and dads house! I took pictures and Brett did some videoing so I put it all together into one. (P.S. Editing a video takes forever...I am not so great at it! haha) 


We are so excited about Baby Jacobs arriving in August!!

I Heart Face Photo Challenge- B&W

I Heart Faces does a photo challenge monthly (used to be weekly). I always loved looking at them and seeing other people's pictures. I had never entered one but decided to give it a go this month. 

I was looking through and had a few that I chose but ultimately narrowed it down to this one from Africa a few summers ago. Love that sweet face and beautiful eyes! :)
