Your Questions Answered..

Thanks for asking the questions yesterday. Here are the answers.

Lindsay wanted to know How small the town I am from is?  Well I now actually live two towns over from the town I grew up in and it is average size about 13,000 people but the town I grew up in only has about 2,000.

Emily wanted to know How I met the hubs? He had just moved down here and was working at Wal-Mart on night shift while going to school. Me and my best friend would go to Wal-Mart every night after we went to the gym. One night he just came up and ask me for my number. So I gave to him. It was actually pretty funny. He thought I had gave him a wrong number.

Annie wanted to know If we plan on having another baby? Yes. I actually would like two more but Dustin only wants one more.

Mama Faith wanted to know What do I think the best part of being a mommy to a little boy is? Well, I love everything about being a mommy to a little boy. Boys are great. And mine is a big mommas boy which I love. 

and

Donnetta asked if we are teaching Landon to say Roll Tide? Yes we are trying really hard. He will say Tide sometimes but thats it.

Thanks so much for the questions. I enjoyed answering them all.

Sick But Still Having Fun

Landon has been sick and we took him to the doctor on Thursday and it turns out that he has a ear infection in both ears. Poor guy. He really doesnt act like it bothers him to much though.

He hadn't been running a fever until Thurs night/ Friday morning. So I stayed home with him on Friday. His fever finally broke around 5:30 on Friday night. We wernt to Dustins grandmothers Friday after Dustin got off work. He was fine Friday night and all day on Saturday. He was having so much fun playing with Zoey and PJ.


They brought him this little chair to sit in and he loved (but he loved climing on it more). He didn't take a nap all day until 5:30 Sat night. I had to wake him up at about 7:30 so he could take his medicine. Right after he woke up he threw up and then again about 11:30 Satuday night. He was up about every 2 hours. He was fine all day on Sunday until we got home and he took his medicine. He threw up again and once again this morning after he took it. I am not sure if it is his medicine make him sick or if he has a stomach bug that is going around.

We had a great weekend despite the sickness. Did you all have a good weekend?

Lunch with Justin Moore

Friday was a great day. I won lunch with Justin Moore and it was so fun. We had lunch at an Italian resturant and the food was just ok but we weren't really there for the food anyway. A lot of the people who worked at the radio station were there.

Here is me and "Dollar" Bill.

This man is so funny. He was talking about how hot Justin Moore's Personal Assistant was her name is Jo James and she was very pretty but I didn't get a picture of her.


Here is Justin and Me. He was so nice and funny (and he is a lot shorter than I thought he would be)


They gave away a tour of his tour bus and he was going to sing acoustic to you while you were there but we didn't win.

Me and Hannah.

There were also some crazy people there at the lunch with some crazy stories. Maybe I will share them soon.

I am going to do a post about the concert tomorrow it was a blast as usual.

Show Us Your Life- Beauty Tips

Today's SUYL over at Kelly's Korner is Beauty Tips.

The only make up that I will use is Bare Escentuals. I love it. It has great coverage yet it feels like you are hardly wearing anything.

My favorite Bare Escentuals products are:


Prime Time Primer: It makes you makeup stay on lots longer.


Well Rested: Best Concealer hands down.

and last..
my concealer brush. I love it..

I can't wait to see everyone elses beauty tips. I am still looking for the perfect eyeliner and mascara.
