Will September Ever Come?

Look what I won. A beautiful picture frame from Casey at Aubut Life. Go check her frames out they are gorgeous.
I have a love/hate relationship with this time of year (mid February-mid August). I love everything about except I hate that there is no Football!! But luckily A-day is 3 weeks. It will be Landon's first trip to Tuscaloosa. I can't wait. Here is a picture of "my boys" practicing.

All I have left to say is Roll Tide Roll!

This New House

We are officially moved in our new house. It was a long weekend (well I wouldn't even call it a weekend I did not get to relax at all. Here are some of the pictures of the house we have a lot more to do though.

Our Bed (my favorite piece of furniture)

I have to get new curtains for the bedroom there are a blueish green color. I am having a hard time decided what color to get. Any Suggestions?

Landon's room

The living room from the hallway

From the dining room



That's just some of the house I didn't take any of the outside because it was to late last night. We went to Rooms to Go yesterday and got a new couch and coffee table for the living room (we put our old one in the basement.

I also got my new laptop this weekend. I got a Sony Vaio instead of a Mac book. I like it a lot so far.

I "heart" Forever 21

I knew I liked Forever 21 for a reason (other than cute cheap clothes)
From AOL Money & Finance

Founders Don and Jin Chang demonstrate their Christian faith by imprinting the bottoms of Forever 21's shopping bags with John 3:16: "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." A young designer named Rowena Rodriguez told Radar magazine her theory behind Forever 21’s meteoric rise. "If you really want to know, I’ll tell you. But you won’t believe me ... the Changs love Jesus!"

Yesterday when I went to the doctor I found out that I have scoliosis. So I have to start physical therapy soon. Sure I have time for that. It seem to always be one thing after another. I am happy to know what it is now though instead of just worrying myself over it everyday. Other than that it has been a pretty boring week so far. We are supposed to close on our house this week. I can not hardly wait.

It's Monday Again...

Sorry I have been M.I.A. We have all been sick around here. First Landon, then Dustin and Me. I missed work on Thursday and Friday and I have a doctors appointment today. I hope I get to feeling better soon. I hate being sick. When I am sick you do not really want to be around me I am very grouchy.

I have a question for all of you SAHM. How do you make it work on one income? I always dreamed of staying at home with my children. I know Landon is in a good daycare but I would love to stay with him. My mom was a SAHM and I want to be a SAHM too. I know we could make it work. We would just have to learn how to better manage our money. I really would like to do this by the end of the summer. Any suggestions?

Look what I got this weekend. Yeah! I can't wait to watch it on blu-ray. I got it at Target so I could get the i-tunes download. I will never be far away from Twilight.

Happy St. Patty's Day!

I got this from Home of the Lazy Dog. It looked fun and It was. It's been a pretty boring week here so there's not much to blog about. Do you like it? Here are the instructions.

1. Go to Wikipedia. The first random Wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.

2. Go to Random Quotations. Click on "New Random Quotations." The last four or five words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album.

3. Go to Flickr . The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

4. Use photoshop or a similar program to put it all together.

Happy St. Patrick's day! Do you have your green on?

Weekend Update

It was a very uneventful weekend as imagined. The highlight of the weekend was going to Chili's on Friday night. It was really good. I guess it was my last "bad" meal for a while since I am starting my diet today. I decided that I am just going to watch what I eat for a while till I find a diet program to suit me. I am starting out at 155 and hope to lose at least 25 pounds.

Also, I won some diaper coupons this weekend. I am super excited. I never win anything. I know it's just coupons but it's a start. I went to one of my favorite stores yesterday Ross. I got a cute new purse for $17 and a dress for $10. You can't beat that. I love being frugal.

Landon has discovered that he has feet and he loves to play with them. He also has discovered his tounge and sticks it out constantly. He loves going to church and staying in the nursery, he was the only boy in there yesterday. He will be six months old next week. I can not believe how fast it has gone. It seem like only yesterday we were bring him home.

Oh No, I'm Becoming the Michelin Man

I am glad it is finally Friday. I am so ready for the weekend. I have no plans for the weekend but I think it might rain all weekend long. So I guess its good that I have nothing to do.

I have been trying to win Taylor Swift tickets and I have had no luck. They went on sale today and I still could not get what I wanted I need four together but could only get two. I really want to go to her concert she is one of my favorites.

I need your help, See that picture up there. That is what I have turned into. I have got to lose some weight but I don't know what I should do. I am not very motivated but that has to change. I am starting something on Monday. I need your help though. What has worked for you? Do you do some type of program? I need HELP. I have got to lose some weight before summertime. I know I would feel so much better if I lost some. I just don't know how I used to be able to eat what I wanted to and not gain any weight but that all has changed since I became a mom. I probably need to lay off of these strawberry and creme frappuccino's. But don't this look delicious? See my problem?

I bought this stuff from Avon for stretch marks and it came in the mail yesterday. The reviews for it were really good. It was on sale so I bought it. Have any of you every used it?

Landon eating pea's. If all I had to eat was this nasty stuff I could defiantly lose some weight. It smells gross but he loves it. Matter of fact, he loves any food you give him except for peaches.

Girls Just Want to Have Fun

Girls Night Out was so much fun. I loved Sips 'N' Strokes. We decided that we are going once a month from now on. The class was packed full. The instructor was hilarious. It was a very fun atmosphere. What do you do for a girls night out?Just getting started Finished background

Finished productEverybody

My local radio station was talking about twitter this morning. I know a lot of bloggers have twitter. I joined it about a month ago but I have no clue about it. Do you use it? How does it work? Is it better than Myspace or Facebook?

Girls Night Out!

Prayer Requests:

First and foremost today could everyone please pray for this sweet little boy and his family. They really need your prayers. http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/tuckerbeam. Also, my dad needs your prayers today. He is having a minor surgery so he can start dialysis.

What motivates people to do things like this? http://blog.al.com/spotnews/2009/03/rampage.html. A man in South Alabama went on a killing spree and killed 9 possibly 10 people. Please pray for the family and neighbors of the victims

Tonight is girls night out we are going to sips n strokes I can't wait I haven't been yet. I am excited, I haven't ever really painted anything before. Has anyone ever been to anything like this before? Did you like it? I will post pictures tomorrow.

On another note, I am almost done reading Breaking Dawn. Does anyone have any suggestions of what I should read next? I love to read and I will read anything.

Who Came Up With Daylight Savings Time Anyway?

This was a crazy weekend. For three reasons.

1. Landon is sick. The medicine that he is taking for his ear infection makes him has diarrhea (TMI I know I am sorry) So on Saturday we went shopping and he had an accident. We had to take all of his clothes off and we didn't pack any more because we were just running to Kmart and back. So he had to ride home with just a diaper on and he was loving it. but didn't know what to think about it.

2. Daylight Savings Time. It takes me like a week or two to get used to the new time change. Can't we just leave it alone. One way or the other it doesn't matter to me.

3. We started packing our stuff to move. Our house is a wreck. We have so much stuff. I found Christmas decorations that we bought after Christmas two Christmas ago, that I forgot about and did not even use this Christmas. We are closing on the house Friday so this week will be chaotic for a couple of weeks.

My sister bought Landon a space saver high chair for her house this weekend. He love it. He thinks he is so big when he sits in it.

I went to a baby shower yesterday for a girl whose parents go to my church. She is so cute. She is having a girl and naming her Jenna. She is due in April.

I also found the cutest easter wreath at CVS for $6.99. Isn't it cute?

PS: Go check out Lucky Mrs T's earring giveaway here http://blog.theluckymrst.com/2009/03/giveaway.html She has very cute earrings. Here is a link to her etsy shop http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=6958612 Go check it out.

It's Finally Friday!

The doctor said that Landon has to keep taking his nebulizer, and he also has an ear infection. So we will probably be spending the weekend inside.

I am going to be busy this weekend because I am going to have a yard sale next weekend. I was going to do it this weekend but I didn't get all of my stuff together in time. I have a lot of stuff to go through this weekend and next week. I need Niecy to come to my house.

I also desperately need to lose some weight. I need to lose about 15 to 20 pounds. I used to love going to the gym but now it is so hard to work all day, pick Landon up, and then get home. I am so tried by that time I just want to get in my pjs and rest. I need something I can do at home any suggestions? What has worked for you? I am going to try to go to some kind of class a few nights a week when we move.

Here is a picture of me wearing my mini bump it that the girl in my office gave me. I love it.

And Yes that is the shirt that I had gotten to wear for our pictures tomorrow, but I had to cancel that appointment. I think instead of going to Portrait Innovations.We are going to get them done by this girl http://www.tonyameltonphotography.com/. She took pictures of a girl that works in my office little boy and they are so cute. She is a bit pricey but I think it will be worth it. We are probably gonna wait a little while to get them done though.

CSI was so good last night. Taylor Swift did an excellent job. I used to watch CSI when it first started and I loved it. Then when they started CSI Miami and CSI NY I stopped watching it, but after last night I may have to start watching every week.

Bubbles is Back

The doctor finally called back yesterday. He could not get an appointment until today. They did call him in some albuterol for his nebulizer, so the dreaded Bubbles the fish came back (The nebulizer mask). Landon hates doing breathing treatments and it makes me want to cry to have to give them to him.

I missed American Idol last night. I was at church I need to set it up on DVR but I never can remember. Kristen didn't make it through and she is not a wild card either but Jasmine Murray and Megan Corkrey are both wild cards and I like both of them.

Also, Taylor Swift is going to be on CSI tonight. I can't wait to watch.

RSV Stinks!

Last night Landon started coughing and his nose was congested and runny. I think he may have RSV again. He just had it in January. My Poor Baby. My brother-in-law "the anasteseologist" listen to him breath with his stethoscope and said that he didn't hear any wheezing, which is good. If the weather would stay constant and not be 60 and sunny one day and then 20 and snowing the next, he might could stay well. I guess that means no pictures on Saturday. I don't want him around a lot of people. I don't know when we will get our pictures done now. He may be a year old before we get family pictures done.

My Little Man

I am trying to get him an appointment at his doctor this afternoon, but they are taking forever

We had a big weekend planned because it's supposed to be 70 here. We were going to get our pictures done Saturday morning. Then Dustin's cousin Chase is playing in a baseball game about 30 minutes from us, so we were going to take Landon to watch him. And on Sunday afternoon I was going to take him to the zoo. Looks like we will be staying home all weekend.

On a happier note, A lady in my office bought the Bump Its and she did not need her mini bump its so she gave them to me.

New Outfits & Reality TV

Dustin and me went shopping last night, for our outfits that we are going to wear on Saturday. We are getting family pictures made. We got Landon some very cute Calvin Klein brown and blue onesies. Here are pictures of our outfits. I'm not sure what shoes to wear though. Any suggestions?

My outfit

Dustin's Outfit

After shopping we came home and watched TV together which we rarely get to do.I realized that love Reality TV. I don't know why, but I love it. Last night we watched America's Best Dance Crew and the Bachelor. I don't normally watch the Bachelor but I knew that last nights show was going to be interesting so we watched it. I can not believe that Jason did that to Melissa on live television. He could have at least talked to her in private. I felt so sorry for her. Since I am on the subject of reality TV here are my top 3 reality TV shows: American Idol, Big Brother, and Jon & Kate plus 8. What are your favorites?

American Idol is a big-to-do at house. We used to get together at Dustin's moms for our "AI Parties" but we haven't done that this season since Landon is here and it to late for him to stay out. I love AI but I haven't really got into it this year. It's a lot different. Tonight is the last group of twelve to sing, one of my favorites so far is singing tonight Kristen McNamara. She was on season 4 of Nashville Star. I hope she makes it through. I guess we will find out tomorrow night.

Home Sweet Home

We made it back from grandma's house (That's Landon's suitcase in the picture above. Isn't it cute?) We thought we were going to get snowed in. The snow was so beautiful it has been forever since it snowed that much in Alabama. It snowed more here at home than it did at grandma's house though. It was a very nice relaxing weekend, I wished it had lasted longer. We did not get Landon out in the snow but I did go out and write his name in the snow on the porch here's a picture.

I just now realized that I didn't get any of him and his grandma. So here is a picture of them a few months ago.
Here are some other pictures I took of Landon over the weekend.

Now that I am done with all of my pictures of Landon. I have a website for everyone. It is http://www.clingtothecross.com/. They are clay crosses, I purchased one for my sister for Christmas. Be sure to read the story behind the cross. All crosses are $16.95 and make wonderful gifts.
