I Feel So Old

Today my nephew is graduating from high school. I can not believe it. Granted I was only five when he was born, it makes me feel old. I am so proud of him though, He has gotten a Naval ROTC scholarship from Auburn (boo!). He will be very successful one day. I am very honored to be his Aunt. I love you Aaron.

This a very old picture of us but it is all I had on this computer.

On the subject of school, I have really been thinking about going back to school. When I first started college I was going to be a Paralegal. I have no clue why I changed but I am thinking I may go back and try it again. I would only have a few semesters. Who knows though I tell myself I am going to do things and then I talk myself right out of them.

On a side note everyone may already know about this website but I have just recently discovered it and it is hilarious. It's TextsFromLastNight.com. Some of the stuff on there I could really do without but some of it is so funny.

PS: I am less than 20 post away from 100 and only 30 more followers till 100. Woo Hoo! I am so excited

Look Who is 8 Months Old.


My baby is getting his first tooth. He is not happy about it though. He has been so whiny and fussy all weekend. It is his front right tooth. his gums are all swollen. I feel so sorry for him. Do any of you have any tips on teething?


He is getting so big. I can't believe he is already eight months old. I guess it didn't help that this weekend I went through all his clothes that he has outgrown. It was very sad. He was so little when he was born (he is still very small for his age) that he could not even wear the outfit we had gotten him to wear home from the hospital. When I looked at it this weekend it was so small, it was hard to believe he ever even wore it.

Dekor Plus Diaper Pail Review

I had the opportunity to review an amazing product. The Dekor Diaper Pail. I fell in love with this system and soon as I started using it. It's design is very modern and sleek which I love. I have used other diaper pail systems and this one is by far the best I have used. There is no more having to push a diaper through a small little hole. And there is no odor what so ever.

Features of the Dekor Plus Diaper Pail:



  • Simply step on the pedal and the lid opens. Drop your diaper into pail and you are done!


  • Unique trap door design prevents odors from escaping into your nursery.


  • Contemporary, clean design for use anywhere in your home.


  • Diaper D├ękor refills hold more diapers than the leading brand, up to twelve times as many!


  • Made of durable scratch resistant ABS plastic that doesn't "pick up" odor.


  • Use after diapers as garbage can, also great for kitty litter or in the garage!

Overall I would recommend The Dekor Plus Diaper Pail. The only drawback I found was that the refills for it are not as readily available as some of the other competing diaper systems. However they are available online.

Aloha Friday


It's Friday! It's Memorial day weekend. Which means only a four day week and work next week. Well it's time for Aloha Friday brought to you by An Island Life. ?Go over and check it out.

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:

Who is your favorite author and what is your favorite book that they have written?
Today's Answer:
During the summer I love to read. I love Nicholas Sparks and my favorite book is Dear John. Warning it's a tear jerker (but most of his are). I also have to add Stephanie Myer ad the Twilight Series. I just had to pick Sparks because I have been reading him for a long time.

PS. come back to my blog over the weekend for a review of an awesome product.

We Have A Winner!

Your New American Idol

I am so excited that Kris won. I love his music and he is so humble. He was in total shock last night. I am a little sad that is over now, I will have to find something else to consume all of my time watch now (guess it's good that So You Think You Can Dance starts tonight). Last nights show was Great though. I loved Keith Urban and Kris' duet to "Kiss a Girl" and Fergie and the Black Eyed Pea's were amazing. It would have been awesome to have been there. I will defiantly be buying Kris' album when it come out. I can not resist posting this picture of Kris' wife and mother it is too funny.

Also, I am slowly becoming addicted to Twitter. Click the link to the left to follow me.

Not Me! Monday..Weekend Update


Not Me! Monday is the blog carnival created by Mckmama.

This weekend we were NOT on the go non stop. I did NOT get a very cute pair of shorts at Old Navy on Saturday. I do NOT want to go back and get a couple more pairs in different colors. We did NOT go to a graduation party on Saturday night. There were NOT some Tipsy people making me laugh until I could not breathe.(If Worst Comes to First(LOL)) They did NOT have so much food there. I did NOT eat so much I couldn't move. Landon did NOT cry almost all the way there and almost all the way home. It was NOT raining so bad on the way home I thought we were going to have to pull over. I did NOT and still do NOT have a stye on my eye. It does NOT hurt so bad and does NOT look awful. I am NOT about to make a doctors appointment.

Yesterday was NOT my very first Mother's Day. Dustin did NOT get me a very cute card and He did NOT let me order another photo tile necklace. We did NOT make a 2 hour drive to his grandmothers and back yesterday. His whole family was NOT there and we did NOT have a very good lunch. Again, Landon did NOT cry almost all the way there and all the way home. We did NOT get Landon his first sippy cup yesterday. He also did NOT try some Gerber banana puffs that melt in his mouth. He did NOT love them.

I Was A Winner

I won a fabulous notebook from Jennifer at The Wilson Six. She makes great stuff go check out here Esty http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5056898. Here is a picture of my notebook.


It is so cute. Thanks Jennifer.

First Mother's Day

Sunday is Mothers Day. It will be my first Mother's Day as a mom. It will also be my first Mother's Day without my mom. It will be a very happy and sad day for me. I will not be able to give my mom a card and a gift. But I will tell her how much she meant to me. I think about her everyday. I still can't believe she is gone. She was a wonderful woman and I strive to be like her in so many ways. I Love You and Miss You Mom!

I couldn't not post this picture of Landon it is too cute and his shirt says Daddy's Little Alarm Clock. And Look how his feet are crossed. They were like that everytime we got an Ultrasound done of him.

Blog Swap Package

I participated in my first blog swap. It was hosted by Kati at Country Girl, City Life. It was so much fun. I got my package yesterday and here is what was inside.


I was partnered with Jessica. Go check her blog out.

I can't believe how much we are alike. Some of Jessica's favorite things were Vanilla, Pink, Reese's, and she also included her daughters favorite nail polish. I love all of the things I received. The morning burst face wash is the face wash I use everyday. I just tried the crystal light fruit punch singles the other day and LOVE them. A co-worker let me try the Stress Relief lotion the other day and I love it I can't wait to use the shower gel. And me and my husband both LOVE Reese's with a passion.

Thanks you so much Jessica.
