T. Mark's Closet

There was an awesome consignment sale last week in the Jackson area that my friend Sarah Denley so kindly let me in on. I was able to run by in between patients, and I racked up! I only had about 15 minutes, so I felt like I was on a shopping spree or something! Pretty much all of the clothes at the sale were in VERY good condition and looked like they had only been worn once or twice. Up until this point, I had not bought many clothes for T.Mark-just a few sleepers and onesies/play clothes, so I was really excited to get his closet a little more prepared for when he arrives! Here is what I got at the sale:

Woohoo! We racked up-and at a fraction of the price if they had been brand new.

Cute little jungle bubble:

My fav!! How precious are those little smiley crabs?

My second favorite-a little romper/Jon-jon thing. (FYI, I am super uneducated about children's clothing. I will probably call of these things by the wrong name! I'm learning though!)

Little fishing pole!

And I can't quite figure out how to rotate this one on my iPad, so just tilt your head to the side! This is another favorite! I think Taylor liked it the best.

And lastly-this one was a sample, so it was brand new. Because of that it cost a little more than the others, but was still a good deal! I can't wait to take him to church in this this summer!

Yay for consignment sales! I am definitely going to start paying more attention to when other sales like this are in town.

Hope you have a great Saturday!

A Non-Beachy Beach Trip, and a Baby Name!

A few weekends back, Taylor and I headed down to Perdido Beach for his company's yearly kickoff meeting. My feet did not touch the sand the entire weekend, but that was just fine with me! I wasn't too keen on squeezing this pregnant belly into a bathing suit anyway, as you can imagine. I did find a dress that I really love though-and it's not even maternity. I'm hoping I'll be able to wear it after the baby gets here. It's just a really stretchy jersey fabric-but in a very flattering cut and fabric.

The picture above was us right before we walked into the big dinner meeting for the weekend. I was so proud of Taylor-he was named Associate of the Year, statewide, for his company, so we got to sit at the head table, and he gave a speech. Here is a pic of Taylor speaking:

And y'all, let me just say-I think he may have missed his calling. That boy should have been a Baptist preacher. He went on for almost 30 minutes, and I know I am biased, but it was GOOD! I had no idea that much time had passed.

He got a standing ovation!

I was so proud to be his date! ;)

In other news-I realized that I havent formally announced Baby Sledge's name on the blog! So without further adue....

we are so excited that we'll be welcoming Taylor Marklin Sledge, III in May!

We have always kind of known that if we had a baby boy one day, he would be a Third. We are still discussing what his nickname will be (we don't really want a "little Taylor" or "little Mark" -my father in law's name is Mark). It will most likely be T.Mark. But that may evolve into just "T" -who knows. But we are really excited about the name!

We have been busy busy with lots of other fun things-I recently got some SUPER cute clothes for T.Mark at a consignment sale, thanks to my friend Sarah Denley-I will post pics soon!
