Our friends Mike and Kacy had their little boy, Wells Michael, yesterday morning. We were so excited for them. We went after work to visit them in the hospital and we ran into our friends Guy and Julie in the parking lot so we all four got to go up and visit.
Kacy and her sweet boy. I am already trying to match up him and Sarah Kate. They are only 10 days apart and their daddies both went to Mississippi State and their mommas are from south Arkansas so I feel like it would be a match made in heaven. Unless of course we have a daughter and Wells decides he likes younger women - and then Sarah Kate will have a fight on her hands. (if we have a son - he couldn't date SK - because Scott and Laurie are cousins. This IS Arkansas - but I don't think that's a good idea. ha!)
And speaking of new life - we had a beautiful Japanese maple tree in our front landscaping and last spring it bloomed so pretty and then we had a freak snow in April and it just completely killed the tree. I thought it would come back to life and I kept waiting and waiting and we finally gave up.
So we decided to get a new tree and we got a Crepe Myrtle tree. I LOVE crepe myrtles. This one is a natchez variety - so it has white flowers. I love the pink flowered ones but I thought it would clash with our red house. I mean you have to accessorize correctly. ha!
What is your favorite kind of tree or plant? I also LOVE Magnolia trees and we have a minature one in our landscaping that I bought a few years ago. It makes me feel so southern.
