Life Lately, My Week.


Sorry I've been a little absent lately, it's likely to continue. Life has been a little crazy! I know you all understand, seems like summer has been hectic for us all, am I right? 

I've had a great week though, and looking forward to my weekend for sure. Happy Friday! 


One. Dustin and I bought a new car! We traded in my Honda for a Toyota 4Runner and we absolutely love it. I've missed my last SUV for a long time, I'm so happy to be up high again. 

Two. We spent Sunday with Christian, who as you can see is cracking us up here. You guys, he is SUCH a ham these days. He loves to make you laugh, he even cracks himself up! 

Three. I got Kacey Musgraves tickets for myself and a few friends. Can't wait to see her again! Who else loves her album?

Four. Yesterday was my beautiful mama's birthday! I was able to take the day off and spend it with her, we had a nice lunch at her favorite place.

Several of my family members were in town yesterday, we all attended the hearing of one of the boys who had been arrested in Christian's case. The judge has set a jury trial for Oct 6. 

Later yesterday, a big arrest was made in the case. Angela Gray, the mother of Christians friend and the women who was driving the ATV when the accident happened was arrested. All I can say is it's bittersweet. I'm glad she will finally be answering for her stupid actions, but it doesn't make Christian better right now. Our MAIN focus is getting him into a rehab facility and better. PLEASE continue to pray for him and his healing. Please pray for her family too. She has several kids, including small ones. It's a sad situation, all the way around. You can read one of the news stories from yesterday here

You can keep up with Christian and our family here. Thank you for all your continued prayers, we did receive some positive information yesterday regarding a possible rehab facility for Christian. My sweet baby brother only deserves the best, he deserves a chance to continue his life as a normal teenager! God has done so much lately, we know without a doubt he is in control. We know this is only the beginning :)

Have a great weekend friends!

  1. I love the new car! It's so hard to go from an SUV to a car, one you have an SUV it just not the same. So glad to hear about the news yesterday, but praying for healing for Christian and some peace and rest for your parents!!!

  13. Aww praying for Christian. I hope he gets into a great rehab soon. I'm also glad to hear she was arrested. And since she has kids she should have known first and foremost to get help, no excuses.
    What a great new car...looks great! And your mama looks just like you, I thought it was you until I read this!

  18. Girl we are on the same page! I traded in my honda last month for the exact same car! Named her Betty White and we've been besties ever since!! The car drives like a truck and I love it! Glad to hear about progress in your brothers case. Hoping he only gets better faster and faster!!

  20. Mia, every time I read something about your family's story, I just cry. Know that my prayers are with you. I'm glad that it looks like justice is finally going to be served, but I understand that it's bittersweet. I just can't believe a woman with children would leave a child in the ditch. It sickens me.

    On a lighter note:
    LOVE the new car and Kacey Musgraves!

  21. So exciting about a new car. I just read the article. I hope justice is served as a parent needs to act like an ADULT and take responsibility, and so far this woman seems do have not done either. Prayers to you all and that sweet brother of yours. That picture of you 3 is priceless. Have a wonderful weekend. Big hugs XXX

  22. It's the right thing for someone to finally have to face the music (especially if they were lying) but you're right, they have a family too. I'm so happy Christian is continually progressing. You're a great big sister :) and nice car, lady!

  24. Was THRILLED to see the arrest status on FB this morning!!!! So so so awesome! Justice will be served! Continuing to follow and pray for a speedy, miraculous recovery.

  34. Ok your new car is gorgeous! Love it! Glad the major arrest was finally made in Christian's case! She definitely needs to answer for her actions so hopefully your family will have some answers now. It won't make up for what happened but you definitely deserve it. And glad Christian is doing so well. Praying you guys get him into a rehab facility soon! Happy weekend pretty lady!
