Giveaway Ending Today

Today is the last day to enter my giveaway for a pair of either girl leg warmers or boy leg warmers form Mommy, Abby, and More. Click HERE to enter. I will choose a winner tommorrow.

Dear AT&T: I Hate You.

Yes Hate is a very strong word but right now I hate them.

They have the worst customer service EVER. I should not get hung up on 8 out of the 10 times that I call them. And you should be able to tell me what a bill is for Right? I think that sounds simple enough.

To make a long story short. We changed our plan from combined to just wireless. We got two bills in one month. We paid one of them, the other we were told by several customer services reps and reps at the wireless stores "Don't pay the second bill, We don't know what it is for". How crazy no one could ever tell us what that second bill was for. We tried numerous times to find out about it. The next few months the bills never showed that we still owed that second amount. So yesterday I got a lovely letter in the mail stating that the bill had been turned over to a collections agency. I was fuming. I called AT&T and of course got hung up on, got transferred from person to person with no clue I was even being transferred, and talked to hands down the most rudest customer service rep ever. Here is my conversation with her (and by this point I was highly pissed because I had been hung up on and transferred a few times too many).

Me: Can you please tell me what the said charges are for?

Rude Rep: Ummm. It looks like they are for a few different things.

Me: Ok. Like what?

Rude Rep: Just a couple of different things on your bill. It really is up to us anymore it has already been turned over to collections. You should call them and just pay it. You owe it and need to pay your bill.

Me: Ok.. Can you please transfer me to someone who can cancel my wireless service.

Rude Rep: Yes but you do know that you will have a $170 cancellation fee. Don't You? (The way she said this made we what to go through the phone and slap her)

Me: (in my own rude voice) Yes Ma'am.

So already today I have filled out a complaint with the BBB and I am trying to find a address or e-mail so I can send AT&T a letter. Please take my advice. If you are thinking about switching to AT&T Don't! Worst mistake I have ever made. All because my wonderful husband wanted a iPhone.

Wordless Wednesday..My Little Monkey

As you can see I have a monkey living at my house. Landon has realized that he can crawl through the coffee table. I ended up having to put pillows in it so he couldn't get through (and he was mad about that).

2 Wonderful Years and 11 Great Months

Two years ago today I was about to become a Mrs. it was and will always be one of the greatest days of my life(even though Dustin forgot my wedding ring). The past two years have had ups and downs but I would not trade them for anything. Everyday is a new and exciting day. I am so glad to have married my best friend.

I will never be able to express how much I love you and what you mean to me. Thanks for being a wonderful husband and father. I love you so much. Happy Anniversary.

Also today LanMan is 11 months old.

What have you been up to?

  • You are trying really hard to learn to walk.

  • You still are pulling up on everything.

  • You can say Dada, Mama, baby, bye bye and are trying to say Sissy (my sister) and sometimes it sounds like you say Stop.

  • You wear a size 3 diaper.

  • You loved to be tickled.

  • You still only have 4 teeth.

  • You still do not sleep all night.

  • You are very adventurous. You crawl through the coffee table and try to crawl off Mommy and Daddy's bed.

  • You love Spaghetti.

  • You weigh around 19 pounds.

I love you both. More than you will ever know.

Wow What A Weekend

Friday night was supposed to be my high schools jamboree game but it got rained out. So we ended up spending sometime at my sisters eating ice cream. It was a great way to spend a rainy night.

Then I had to get up so early on a Saturday morning for school. While I hated getting up so early on a Saturday, school was great. I think I am really going to enjoy this class. My teacher is great. She is only 27 and is full of energy. We got our syllabus and I have class on Sept 5 (Alabama vs. VT) not only do I have class I also have two quizzes and we are dissecting that day. So I will not be able to miss that day. So I am not going to be able to go on Friday with everyone else. I am going to have to leave right after class and drive two hours to Atlanta in game day traffic by myself. Oh what fun that will be. I have never drove in Atlanta before. If you have never been to Atlanta the roads are crazy and they will be even crazier with all the game day traffic. After class I went shopping with my sister. Didn't really buy anything though. Then they had rescheduled the jamboree game to Saturday night, so we all went to that. Landon really enjoyed it. My high schools team is not so good (They haven't been since like my sophomore year) but it was still fun to go and watch. We did not get home on Saturday night until around 10 and Landon was still awake (he usually goes to bed around 8).

So needless to say we slept in a little bit on Sunday morning. We didn't do to much on Sunday except for I went and got Landon's pictures made at Walmart because he had won a free 10x13. I was only going to buy there $5.99 package and ended up spending $40 but I couldn't help it he looked so cute. The weekend was so beautiful. I wanted to be outside all day on Sunday.

Well tomorrow is Dustin and my 2 year anniversary. We are going to go to our favorite restaurant. Kanomi to celebrate. I can't wait. It will also be Landon's 11 month Birthday.

Here is a picture of my cute almost 11 month old baby boy.

The Men In Brown Are Coming

So over the weekend we went to Dustin's grandmothers house. It was my last weekend before school starts. It was a pretty relaxing weekend we did a whole lot of nothing really. I did get to go to a kids consignment shop (Ditto's for Kiddo's) while we were up there (and I really would like to go back next Saturday for there 1/2 off sale). I bought Lan lots of new winter clothes. I also got him this Vtech sit to stand dance tower. He loves it.

Today they are supposed to deliver Landon's new car seat. I have ordered him a Britax Marathon in Crocodile print. I can't wait. I hope that The Men in Brown(UPS) will leave it at our house but then again I hope it doesn't rain on it. Also, today after work I have to go up to school and buy my books I have to spend over $300 on one textbook and a lab manual. Why do these textbooks have to be so expensive? Then after that Dustin, Landon, and me are going to eat supper with my sister and niece. Hot Wings. YumO. And then after that it is home to watch Big Brother. It should be a great one tonight. I am so glad Chima is gone!!

Aloha Friday

It's Friday!! So that means it's time for Aloha Friday again! If you would like to join in on all the fun head on over to An Island Life.

In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.

Today's Question:

If you have children what has been your favorite "baby gear"?

Today's Answer:

I just recently bought Landon a Chicco Polly High Chair and I love it. It is so much better than the little booster seat that we did have. And I have also ordered him a Britax Marathon Car Seat. It is supposed to be delivered on Tuesday and I can not wait to use it. He has almost outgrown his infant car seat.

Cherry Hill Designs Review

First of all I want to say a big thanks to Angie and Cherry Hill Designs for giving me the opportunity to review her awesome labels. Angie send me some of her tiny pacifier waterproof labels and some of the mini circular waterproof labels.

Landon started daycare a few weeks ago (and is now finally liking it, but that's another story). So this was the perfect opportunity to review these labels. As soon as I got them in the mail I started labeling up everything that he takes to daycare. All of his bottles, sippy cups, wipes case, his puffs, medicine bag everything is labeled. I have been super pleased with this product in the week that we have had them. I have washed his bottles around 5o times and at daycare they warm them up in a crock pot and these labels haven't budged. They still look as good as when I originally put them on.

Now Landon does not suck a paci but these tiny pacifier labels can be put on anything. I put them on his bottles because they matched them perfectly. But I also put them on his puffs and wipes case. But they can be used for anything. I did put one of them on a paci that he likes to play with and it was a perfect fit.

I used the mini circle labels for sippy cups and they look great! Cherry Hill Designs offers lots of other things besides these labels. They have paper labels, New iron on labels, bag tags, stationary and even baby gear. If you are in the market for any of these items and even if you not you should go check out Cherry Hill Designs. Angie also has a blog, twitter, and facebook. Go check her stuff out I promise you won't be sorry. And right now (Unitl August 16) you can get free shipping for purchases $30 or more. So hurry up.

Not Me! Monday

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

Landon does not now know when were are dropping him off at daycare and he does not proceed to cry and pout every morning when we drop him off.

We would not wait almost two years before finally using the grill that we got for a wedding gift and we would never eat steak two nights in a week that were cooked on this said grill.

I have not become addicted to Twitter and did not almost go crazy last week when it was down for two days on my Black Berry. I would never.

Landon did not have a great time at his friend Cailyn's birthday party. I did not let him eat some of a chocolate cupcake. Then we did not go to another party where Landon did not eat a few bites of banana pudding. I would never let my almost 11 month old eat that much sugar. Not Me!

I am not super excited that football is so close. I am not trying to think of ways to get out of my third Saturday AP I class to go to the Alabama/ VA tech game. I would not enter a fantasy football challenge and I would never read and research teams for weeks before I chose who I wanted to pick. I also would not ever let my husband get a Fat Head of Peyton Manning to hang in his man room. Nope Not Me!

Today's Answer:
My favorite college sports team is Alabama. Roll Tide. I bleed crimson and white. We only have a month left until football season and I can not hardly wait. It has been a long 8 months. Saturday's during football season are my favorite time. I love getting up and watching Game Day and then watching all the games that day. Get ready for lots of football post.

I Fell Into The Gap..Luckily I Made It Out.

Off Day's are so much fun. Yesterday I took off to spend a day with my sister and niece before school starts back next week. We had a great time. We had to take my dad to dialysis yesterday morning and while he was there we went to the mall. And I found this cute pair of jeans and top at GAP.

You can't really tell by the picture but it has some brown embroidery on the top. so cute.

I love these jeans. I was in desperate need of some new ones. I was down to one pair and then they got a whole in them. I have been wearing dresses all summer but I will have nothing to wear when it gets cold.

Tuesday Landon's daycare called me and said that they thought he had HFMD (hand, foot, mouth disease) which are little blister like things that can form on your hands mouth and feet. Luckily he does not have a fever so he is not contagious and he only has blister on his hands and feet but they have almost gone away now. My poor baby I hate when he is sick. Speaking of daycare, Landon is not a fan of it. The first week he did great. Now this week, the cries every morning when we drop him off. I hate it so much. I wish I could just stay at home with him.

Landon will be going to his first birthday party on Saturday. A little girl in this daycare class is having her first birthday party, at the same place Landon is having his, on Saturday. Also Dustin's cousin is having his graduation party this Saturday so we will have lots of partying and pictures this weekend. But this weekend will also be kind of sad. My nephew (remember the one who graduated this year) will be moving off to college. We are going to be going over to my sisters tonight to eat with them. So we can see him before he leaves.

Wordless Wednesday...Priceless

Saw this as we were walking through the Mall today. Priceless.

Bye Bye

Feeling kinda blah today so I thought I would share the cutest video in the world with you. (ok it may not be the cutest to you but it is to me.) It's a video of Landon saying Bye Bye. Which is now his favorite thing to do. But he usually waves also when he does it but he is not waving in the video (of course he is not going to do it when I am trying to record him.) So Enjoy. Hope it puts a smile on your face. I know it did mine.
