I am so happy it's Friday. Even though I was only at work for two days this week, it was a crazy two days trying to get through all of my monthly close duties. I am just happy it is done and over with and I am at home now with my baby girl for the weekend!

I was so sad this morning when I read that the oil spill may be hitting Myrtle Beach by July. The whole situation is just a horrible tragedy and it's just hard for me to believe that these beautiful beaches are going to be affected by all of this. Our family owns a condo in Myrtle Beach and we have vacationed there every year for the past ten years. This year will be extra special for us because it will be our first Myrtle Beach vacation with Jillian. I know there are a lot of "ifs" on whether or not the oil will hit the Carolina coast. I just hope that BP will find a solution soon to contain the spill so our country's beautiful beaches can be spared.

This Louisiana Pelican is such a heart breaking sight to see.

On a happier note, our builder has broken ground on the next phase in our development. Such a positive sign that the economy is starting to make a move in a positive direction. This new phase is going to extend along the nature preserve and connect two main roads within the development. We have been told this phase was going to open two years ago and it is finally happening! I took a few pictures of all the crazy construction on one of my walks. I am constantly hearing the humming and banging from all the construction from the inside of my house all day long. The phase is set to open in July so only two more months of this chaos.

My smarty pants little girl has learned to turn on her Fisher Price Aquarium herself now. I have been woken up several times this week at 3am to the chirping of crickets and the lullaby music coming from this thing. It's beyond adorable right now but I am sure after a few weeks, I may be removing the batteries each night as a part of our bedtime routine.

This little girl loves to stick her tongue out at everything lately. I don't know if it has to do with teething on her bottom two teeth or what but all of her pictures lately have her cute little tongue sticking out.

I was excited to find out this week that my friend Abby over at Life with B and A and D has featured me as her Blogger of the Week! Please stop by her blog and check out her post!!!

I am off to take my morning walk around the neighborhood with Jillian, I hope everyone has a great weekend!
