An Awesome Giveaway!

This giveaway is too awesome not to blog about. A Shopaholic Mommy is giving away $100 Gymboree Gift Card. Oh, how I could use this. Landon is growing so fast and needs new clothes. Click HERE to check it out.

Check-Up's and College

Yesterday was Landon's 9 month check up. Everything was great. He is still on the smaller size but over all is doing wonderful. He had to get his last Hep B shot and they had to check his blood levels. They pricked his finger and put a band aid on it and when I got home with him (we live like less than a minute from his doctor) he had gotten the band aid off his finger and had it in his mouth chewing on it GROSS!
Well it's official I am about to be a college student (again!). I have filled out my FAFSA and I am meeting with an advisor in July. I am so excited! I know it will be hard though. I am stilling going to be working full time and Landon is my number one priority. But I will make it.


The program I am going to be in is a night and weekend program. So I will have class after work and on the weekends. It will take a little longer than the normal program but I will be able to continue to work.


PS: I will be hosting 3 giveaways this month so come back and join in. The first one will be on Thursday!

Friend Makin' Monday

So I am a little late posting today. I had to take Landon to the doctor today for his 9 month check-up and I have had my niece with me since last night. So I am finally getting to post this at 8 pm.

Kasey the wonderful host of Friend Makin Monday is on vacation so this week is hosted by Shawn from Seriously.

Shawn asked:

What are you doing for the Fourth of July?
Well I am still not sure. There is always a fireworks show downtown or we may go to the fireworks show that my sisters church is putting on. Or we may not do anything special. It's really hard to plan things with a 9 month old.

What is your favorite dish?
My favorite thing to eat on the Fourth is BBQ hands down.

Do you have any Fourth of July traditions?
We usually to go downtown on top of a parking deck and watch the fireworks show. We would always stop by Sonic first and get ice cream then go to the show. We have done this ever since I was little. But this year without my mom, I am not sure how fun it would be.

I do not have a Fourth of July picture to show (I will defiantly take one this year though)

Thanks for stopping by! I hope everyone has a great Fourth!

PS: Stop by later in the week for a giveaway.

Aloha Friday



Aloha Friday Everyone!! It's been a crazy week. I am so glad that is finally Friday! Go to An Island Life to 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:


What is your dream car?


Today's Answer:

This would be my dream car a Lexus IS '09. It is only around 40,000. I may get one one day, who knows.


What's Yours?

9 Months Already???

Landon is 9 months old today!!! Your getting so BIG!I can't believe how fast he is growing up. He now has three teeth (and now knows how to use them, he bit me twice last night). He is can eat stage 3 baby food. He love to eat bread and he love Gerber Puff's in any flavor and they are a life saver sometimes.


He is crawling everywhere. I put him down in his room and walk out and the next thing I know he is right behind me. He is pulling up on anything and everything he can reach. He tries to pull up on the kitchen drawers and usually ends up getting hurt because it opens on him (I need to get some drawer locks). I think he will be walking before to long.



He Loves the pool and his new float. He loves to take a bath. He usually gets mad when it's time to get out. He is going to love the water just like me.

I registered him yesterday for a new daycare. It is at a church close to our house. I really think we are all going to like it a lot. I am sad that he will not be staying with my sister anymore (she has to go back to work the first of August) but I know he will have a great time there.

Also don't for get about my Ink Obession Designs giveaway. It ends tonight, so be sure to enter. To enter click HERE.

It's Time...Come Celebrate!

Brace yourself this one is going to be a long one and there is a little something in it for you!

It's my 100th post bring on the fireworks and cake!


First things first, I want to thank all of you so much for coming over and reading my blog! You all are amazing! I really have made a lot of friends in the past few months. You also have been with me though a few things, my first post was when Landon was just 5 months old and he will be 9 months old next week. You have seen his first crawl, his first tooth (he has two more coming in by the way) and his first pool experience and many more firsts and I am sure that there will be more to come. I hope you stick around to see them.

Now it's time for my Q&A segment. Sit back and enjoy.

The first question comes from Cammie. She wants to know How I met my husband and How I knew he was the one.


This is a good one. I met my husband at Walmart (yes embarrassing I know) He was working there and me and my best friend at the time would go in there every night after working out. He came up and asked for my number and that was that. I am not sure how long into our relationship that I knew he was the one I realized that I couldn't imagine my life without him and that's when I knew he was the one. We may fight all the time but I still can not imagine me without him.

Next question is from Tina. She wants to know My greatest thing about being a mother.

Well I have always wanted to be a mother. I love children always have. I have babysat my whole life. I love everything about being a mother even the whole being sleep deprived thing (though my body doesn't really love it). But I guess if I had to pick one thing it would be when he smiles at me. I get this feeling that I can't explain every time he does it.

Next question is from Ali. She wants to know if someone was to make me a birthday cake, what kind would it be?

I don't really eat that much cake because I don't like icing (but love the cake part), I guess it would either have to be cheesecake or ice cream cake.

And the last question is from Cadance. She wants to know what my "normal" day is like.

I don't think I have had a normal day since Landon was born. But my usual routine is getting up between 4:45 and 5:10 getting myself ready for work, then getting Landon ready. Take Landon to my sisters and then go to work. At work it is very routine I work at a hospital in medical records so I answer phones, file, fax, and do pretty much whatever else is asked of me that day. Then we go pick Landon up from my sisters and usually visit with them for awhile, then back home for dinner, then a bath and bed. Landon is sleeping pretty much all night now so we usually get a good nights sleep. This changes day to day though.

Thank all of you for your questions.

Now for the good part a Giveaway!
