Five Question Friday

1. Is there something you've always wanted to try but just can't muster up the courage to actually do yet?

The one thing that I had always wanted to do but didn't think I could ever do was fly in a plane and I did it when we went to Vegas and I loved it and can't wait to do it again.
2. If you had $100 handed to you in cash without your significant other knowing about it, what would you spend it on?
I would probably buy me one cute (cheap) outfit and spend the rest on Landon.

3. What was your favorite piece of playground equipment as a child?
Well I loved the Monkey Bars (Jungle Gym) but not so much after I fell off of them and broke my arm. So after that I guess just the swings.

4. Do you prefer a sweet or hearty breakfast?
At breakfast time I don't like to eat to much so probably something sweet but if it is brunch or breakfast for dinner then something hearty.

5. Are you a Neat Freak or a Messy Bessy?
I don't really think I am either. I like things neat but if its not then I am ok with it.

Since I've Been Gone

I took a little bloggy break for a while not really because I wanted to. I have missed blogging and checking out everyone elses but I have been so busy the past couple of weeks. Work is so busy because it is summertime one of the girls that usually helps us went home for the summer so that means more work for me. I also started physical theapy for my back again last week and that takes up a lot of my free time.

I took off last friday because I had physical theapy but I never thought I was going to make it to physical theapy Friday morning because I realized at about 7:00 Thursday night I had left my directions and the phone number at work and I was the first appointment of the day. So I left home hoping I could figure out where it was (bad mistake) I got so lost. I decided that I better just go by work and get the directions. So I parked in the tunnel under my building so I could run in and get them (btw there is a $100 fine for paking in that tunnel so I was running as fast as I could) I just grabbed the directions and ran out. After I got in the car I realized that I still did not have the number. I tried to follow the directions but I got lost again. My appointment was supposed to be at 7 and it was already 7 by this time. So I go back to work but I did not want to risk parking in that tunnel again after everything else was already going bad. So I parked in the parking deck and walked over to my building, got the number and called the office to see if they even wanted me to still come in. She said it was fine to come on in so I walked back over to the parking deck and I went to pay to get out and the machine was broken. I had to go back and park again and go down to the ground level and pay. By the time I finally made it to phyiscal therapy it was 7:30.

After I left physical therapy I was going home because Dustin, Travis, and me were going to Tunica. It was pouring down raining when I left and what should have took me about 20 minutes to get home took almost a hour. At one point I guess some water had gotten into my brakes and I went to stop and the brakes would not work. I am so glad that there were no cars and the light turned green, they finally started working again thank goodness. I finally made it home and we got on the road to Tunica and everything was good. We had a great time in Tunica. We ate at the Paula Deen buffet one night and it was delicious.

I have been trying to win tickets to the Bayou Country Superfest in Baton Rouge for almost a month from a local radio station. I got a email Monday morning saying that I had won. I am so excited. I am taking my neice with me. My sister, my neice, Landon, and me are going to go down on Friday afternoon and are coming back on Sunday. The concerts are Saturday and Sunday. On Saturday we are going to get to see: Taylor Swift, Keith Urban, Kellie Pickler, David Nail and Gloriana and on Sunday we will be seeing Kenny Chesney, Brooks and Dunn, Jason Aldean, Jake Owen and Justin Moore. I am so excited. Also while we are there we are going to go to New Orleans, I have never been and I am looking forward to it.

I am sorry this post was so long.

Get Ready..

I have already told you about one of my favorite places to shop online CSN Stores. I can literally go over and look at stuff all day long. If you didn't know CSN Stores has over 200 online stores where you can find anything from shoes and handbags, to cribs and highchairs, and if you are in the market for a new bathroom vanity you can find that there too. CSN is generously letting me review one of there amazing items.

So be on the look out for a review on a great product from CSN Stores and be sure to go to there website and check them out (Just make sure you have a lot of time because I am not joking you can spend hours there.)

Wordless Wednesday... Femail

This was on the side of a postal workers car..
Not really sure what it means.

I just wanted to tell everyone why I was being such a bad blogger. I do all my blogging and visit all your blogs in my free time at work because lets face after spending the whole day away from Landon and Dustin I just want to spend time with them when I get home. So on Monday when I get to work I try to come over here and the website is blocked and it is allotting me a certain amount of time to be on any blogspot blog. Crazy.. So that is why I haven't been around much. I think that I will start bring my laptop to work so I can blog on my lunch.

Anyway, I had a wonderful Mother's Day and I hope you all did too. Friday afternoon Dustin went and picked Landon up from daycare so I could go get a mani/pedi. It was so nice. Then we spent the weekend at Dustin's grandmothers. We all went out to eat Saturday night and had a great time.

The week so far has been pretty uneventful. My nephew is coming home to visit tonight so we are going over to my sisters for dinner. I can't wait to see him. Then this weekend we are going to graduation party for Dustin's cousin so that should be fun too.

Show Us Your Life- Kids Names (Future Kids Names)

Today over at Kellys Korner it's Show Us Your Life- Kids Names and Future Kids Names.
Baby Names are one of my most favorite things.

Landon Heath
(Landon- From the Long Hill) (Heath- Heathland)

Landon's first name is just a name that Dustin and Me both really liked. It was really hard for both of us to decided on a name that we both liked.

We chose Heath as a middle name because that is also Dustin's middle name.

if we were to have another little boy his name would be...

Levi Hayes
(Levi- Joined In Harmony) (Hayes- Lives By The Forest/Brush)

Levi is a name that we talked about when I was pregnant with Landon.

I want them to have the same initials and I love the name Hayes.

Eden Cate
(Eden-Paradise) (Cate-  Diminutive Form Of Catherine)

I am in love with the name Eden. It is so beautiful.

I have always wanted to use Cate as a middle name.

Top Two Tuesday...Splurges

Top Two Tuesday...

Since I had Landon my splurges have really changed. They used to be purses, shoes, manis and pedis, and clothes for myself. They have changed some now.

1. Landon Britax Marathon- This was a huge splurge but so worth it. I love this car seat and it has great features. If we have another child I will defiantly be purchasing another one.

2. Landon's clothes- While I buy a lot of his clothes at consignment shops. I do tend to splurge on a few things every now and then. But I tend to go a little over board some times. You might remember this post where I wrote about Landon having 32 pair of pants. To give you a little peek of what I mean. Here is a picture of some (most I did keep maybe 20 things) of Landon 3-6 months clothes.

At 2:09 this morning I turned 24. So far I am having a pretty good birthday.

Thursday night before the Barons game, Dustin, Landon, and me had dinner at Ruby Tuesday's. Then my sister and my Nice took me to dinner at a local seafood place on Friday night. Then yesterday Dustin's mom cooked lunch for us. We had hamburgers, squash, fried potato's, green beans, and chocolate chip cookies. It was delicious. And tonight my dad is supposed to be taking us to dinner. I feeling like I have gained 20 lbs this weekend but it has all been worth it.

Well I am off to go Internet shopping with my birthday money. Hope you all have a great Monday.

Thursday night Landon went to his first baseball game. We meet our friends Andrea and Drew to watch the Birmingham Barons play the Huntsville Stars. We ended up leaving during the middle of the 7th inning because it was already after 9. The Barons did win though 3-1.

Landon even won a prize for being the loudest fan (he actually wasn't being loud at all. I just had him standing in my lap clapping his hands. What did he win?

A whole pizza!!

He had a great time but as soon as we got in the car he fell asleep. We can't wait to go again.
