Top Two...
Things (people not included) I would take to a Deserted Island


1. My Cell Phone- I just recently made the switch from a blackberry to the iphone and i think I would be lost without my phone. (hopefully the island would have 3g lol.)

2. Magazines- I would bring lots of gossip and fashion magazines. I would stay busy for days.



Head on over to Taylor's blog to join in the fun.

Weekend

We had a wonderful weekend but it was busy.

Friday night Dustin, Landon, and me me meet our friends Drew and Andrea (and baby Bryant who will be here next month) at Red Robin it was delicious as usual. Then we went over to there house for a bit. Drew and Dustin played play station while Andrea showed Landon and me Bryant's room. Landon had to play with all of his toys. Then we all started playing words with friends together. It was so much fun. Landon started getting sleepy at about 10 so we decided we better go home. He was asleep within five minutes.

Saturday we had sort of a lazy day. We went to Walmart and got groceries then we went to Granna's and visited with her, Randall, and Jen.

Sunday I was invited to go shopping with two of my friends whom I hadn't hung out with in close to 3 years. We went to a mall about an hour and a half from my house. We left at 11 and we didn't leave the mall until almost 6 then we decided to drive to Tennessee and get some scratch offs and lottery tickets. We didn't get back to my house until after 8. It was Randi and Nickole's first time to really see Landon. He loved them and I think they really liked him too.

After such a busy weekend I did not want to get up this morning. I had to drag myself out of bed.

We have been slowly teaching Landon to use the potty. He loves to pee pee in the potty. No number 2 yet. But Saturday morning was the first time that he came up to us and said. "I wanna potty". We usually have to ask him.  Here is a picture of him on his "Froog" potty.

I have to leave you with a few pictures of Landon it was his first time staying in a hotel and he loved it.






This was my first time going to Louisiana and for the most part I loved it. I did learn a valuable lesson though. NEVER let my husband find the hotel room.

Louisiana

I know I have been a bad blogger but I just really needed a break. So I will not dwell on it.

Back almost a month ago I won tickets to go to the Bayou Country Superfest in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.  My sister, Landon, and me left on that Friday after work headed to Baton Rouge. Not even an hour into the trip we had to pull over at a rest area because it was raining and hailing so bad that we could not hardly see and the wind was blowing so hard it was shaking my sisters car. We had to stay at the rest area for about an hour.

We finally get back on the road and everything is going pretty good till about 8pm when Landon decides that he is sleepy and does not want to go to sleep in his car seat. I had to get in the back seat with him and sing to him for about 30 minutes before he went to sleep.

We got to our hotel at about 11 pm.

 I have to go back a few days to tell you the store about the hotel. I won the tickets on Wed before the concert which was on Saturday and Sunday of Memorial day weekend. So when we went to find a hotel they were all booked. We thought we were not going to get to go but my wonderful husband finds a motel that has 2 rooms available. So we book one. Well we knew it was not going to be the best in the world but...

We we got there the first thing we see are hookers (no lie) then we finally get our room its on the second floor so we get out get our luggage and carry Landon (who is asleep up the stairs because the elevators do not work. We get up there and there is only one bed and the room smelt awful. So we go back down, Landon and me get in the car while my sister goes back to the desk. While she is in there Landon wakes up because there are some guys outside taking and yelling really loud (its almost midnight by this time).  She comes back and says that we have to go back up to the second floor again. So here we go with all our luggage and Landon. We get to that room and the beds are all unmade (like someone is staying in this room) and there are beer bottles everywhere. Again we go back down to the desk. We get another room. Well this room is the cleanest of the three but is still disgusting. We hadn't been in the room five minutes some guy starts trying to get into our room (the people at the desk had gave him our room thinking no one was in it) So needless to say that my sister called down to the desk and said that we would stay there that night but she wanted her money back. I slept in my clothes and shoes in case we had to make a dash and I would not let Landon touch the bed I made him sleep on top of me. They told my sister that a manager would be in at 6 o clock so at about 5:45 we were down there waiting.

Luckily my niece was staying in a hotel with her dad in New Orleans Friday night and we were going to pick her on Saturday anyway. So we called and told them what was going on and they told us to come there and take showers and get ready. So we made the hour trip from Baton Rouge to New Orleans and went to there hotel to get ready.

We got ready and decided to go to the French Quarter for a bit to eat lunch. I had called Dustin and told him about the room and he was looking for other places to stay. Finally he found a room at the Holiday Inn in Baton Rouge so we called and got the last room they had. Thank goodness. We thought we were just going to have to go home and not get to go to the concert. After that little fiasco we had no more trouble. Well besides my camera decided to break on me.

Because this post is already super long I will do a post of just pictures.(The ones I got anyway)

Why Raising A Toddler Is Like Being At A Frat Party

Saw this the other day and just had to share because it is so true.


10. There are half-full, brightly-colored plastic cups on the floor in every room. Three are in the bathtub.

9. There's always that one girl, bawling her eyes out in a corner.

8. It's best not to assume that the person closest to you has any control over their digestive function.

7. You sneak off to the bathroom knowing that as soon as you sit down, someone's going to start banging on the door.

6. Probably 80% of the stains on the furniture contain DNA.

5. You've got someone in your face at 3 a.m. looking for a drink.

4. There's definitely going to be a fight.

3. You're not sure whether anything you're doing is right, you just hope it won't get you arrested.

2. There are crumpled-up underpants everywhere.

1. You wake up wondering exactly how and when the person in bed with you got there
