Way To Long..

So it has been way to long since I have posted anything. It has been a crazy couple of weeks around here. We had some family issues and my dad was in the hospital for about a week. He is out now and is doing good.

I got a new job offer. It's at the same place I work now but in a different department. So I am working out my two week notice right now. I am super happy about it as it is a great opportunity and a pay raise but I am going to miss all of my co-workers that I have now. I start next Monday so wish me luck.

Landon will be two in just a little over two weeks. I can not believe it he has grown up so much in the past month.

Football season is finally here and I couldn't be more excited. Here are some pictures from Saturday.





Roll Tide Roll!!!

First Haircut

Last week I finally decided it was time for Landon to have a haircut. I was trying to put it off as long as possible but it was starting to look bad.

Here he is before:


and here is the best I could get of him after:



He looks so much older.

and Here is a video of him getting it done. I could not believe how good he was. He didn't make a peep and it was storming outside and the lights went off for a second and he was still as quiet and still as he could be.

Five Question Friday



1. Are you a neat sleeper or a messy sleeper?
Neat. I hardly ever even move while I am a sleep.

2. Fill in the blank. I wish I was more Organized (at home) I am very organized at work but I lack all organization at home.

3. What is something that you wish you had been warned about?
Not to gain so much weight while I was pregnant (I actually was probably warned about this but it was either too late or I didn't really listen probably the latter) because it is so hard to get it off now.


4. What was the best thing you ever found at a garage sale/flea market?
Probably clothes for Landon. Right after we found out that he was a boy. There was a yard sale down by Dustin's mom house and the lady had had a little boy about a year before Landon was born so all the clothes matched with the seasons perfectly. I think we bought just about everything she had. Needless to say Landon had plenty of clothes for the first year of his life.

I also found this really neat Wizard of Oz collectible dish once.


5. If you could have any meal brought to you right now, what would it be?
Japanese..Yummy.

Wee Squeak Review and Giveaway!

Wee Squeak generously asked me to review a pair of there adorable and fun shoes. And they are also letting me giveaway a pair to one of you!

Here are the shoes that we were able to review.



Aren’t they cute? I wish I could have got a picture of Landon wearing because they look so cute on him but at almost two he is never still long enough for me to get a picture of his feet.

He loves these shoes. He didn’t know what to think about them at first but now he loves them and always wants to wear them. I think they are so fun and in a store of somewhere crowded we won’t lose him. These shoes are made very well and look like they will last us a long time.

I also love that Wee Squeak donates 5% of our profits (up to $1,000 contribution per charity per year) to Half the Sky (whose goal is to ensure that every one of China's orphans has a caring adult in her life).

Wordless Wednesday...Crazy Kid

He did this all by himself.
I have a drawer in the kitchen filled with plastics that I don't use for him to play with these cups are in that drawer so he got out the cup and stuck his sippy in it and was drinking it that way. He is truly a crazy kid.

Weekend

First before I share about our weekend. Wednesday my bff had her baby and so Thursday night we went to see them in hospital. Landon was at Dustin's grandmothers so he didn't get to go but he will see baby Bryant soon.
Here is me with Bryant. It looks like I am just holding a ball of blankets but I promise there is  a baby in there. He was so sweet and I am so happy for them.

We didn't do very much this weekend. I cleaned a ton on Saturday morning while Dustin was at work then we went over to Granna's for Jen's birthday party. We had so much yummy food.

We went back over there yesterday for a little while. Then last night Landon and me went to church with my sister. There church stared a revival last night and it was a awesome service. Then after church they had homemade ice cream. I was in heaven. I think I could eat my weight in homemade ice cream.

I hope all of you had a wonderful weekend.

Five Question Friday



1. Did you have a favorite blanket or toy as a kid? If so, do you still have it?
I had a baby doll and it's name was Jarvis (yes I named it myself and no I have no I deal where I came up with that name but it's not as bad as my cousin naming a little horse she got once Chocking Hazard because it said that on the box so she thought that was it's name. lol)
I don't actually still have Jarvis but one of my brothers ex girlfriends found a doll at the thrift store that looked just like him so she bought it for me and I still have it.

2. Do you dream in color?
Sometimes

3. How tall are you? Do you wish you were shorter or taller?
I am 5 foot even and I hate being short. I wish I was just a little taller may 2 or 3 inches.

4. If you could have anyone's (celeb or other) voice as the guide on your GPS, who would it be?
Reese Witherspoon. I just love her. Or John Krasinski because he would be funny.

5. Do you return your shopping cart to the corral or leave it wherever in the parking lot?
Usually

Say Cheese!!

Saturday we took Landon to get some new pictures taken. They turned out so good. I didn't know if he was going to do good or not because he had just started playing with some blocks and I had to take them away from him when they called us back but he pouted for a minute but then he was fine.




So precious..
I can't believe in two months I will have a two year old where has the time gone?
