Yea for Texas!

This past weekend in Texas was awesome – we got Collin’s pictures taken, I went shopping with my sister to find some jeans that actually fit me, and we did everything on my list from the last post that I was looking forward to!

I also went with my sister to look at some rings, but didn’t find exactly what I am looking for. Since I have lost some weight, my wedding ring no longer fits. Eventually if I keep the weight off I will get my ring re-sized, but since I think that it is mostly due to breastfeeding, I don’t want to do anything too drastic until I can keep it off for about 6 months after I stop breastfeeding. Anyways, I hate walking around without a ring on my finger, but I had to stop wearing my wedding ring when it fell off in the parking lot at Quizno’s…I do not want to risk losing something so valuable! Any ideas for a ring for the meantime? The main problem is that my finger is now a size 4 ½ and the fake rings you see in Dillard’s, etc. don’t ever come that small – and I also don’t want to spend much money on it (think less than $100).

Collin’s pictures turned out AMAZING! You can check them out at www.battenphotography.com/collin5 if you want to, but I have a few disclaimers:

1. I was not expecting to be in any of the pictures, so I look terrible (no makeup, etc!)
2. There is a picture of me feeding Collin that my mom made me take – you can’t see any skin, but just an FYI.

Overall we had a great trip, but we missed Son terribly. That was the only thing that made it easier to leave. I will try to get time to post some pictures from the trip soon. We are already planning our next trip in December!
