Mom's I look up to!

So I read a lot of mom blogs and recently I have been very touched and filled with admiration when reading a couple posts from a couple mommies I follow and I wanted to share with you!


How could you say it any better!

My heart goes out to their family, please join me in praying for all of them!

4 Little Men and Girly Twins-

WOW! I can't wait for Jackson to have brothers and sisters!

All mommies need to get in FRONT of the camera a little more!

Three Little Snaps-

So True!!


I really try to treasure every smile, snuggle, smell and touch!!

I really wish I could put my mommy feeling into words like these ladies have....don't you?


October in review

Wheeeew! It has been a crazy couple of months and October was no exception! Wedding, 10 month birthday, 1st Halloween and Monday Night football!

My Husband's Baby sister affectionately referred to as "Aunie" got married on October 17, I was a bridesmaid and Justin walked his beautiful sister down the isle! Jackson......he provided eye candy! Seriously between the magnificent beauty of the bride, Lexie (our niece) the most stunning flower girl ever and my little stud muffin I think these pictures are remarkable! I can't wait to see the professional photographer's pictures!!

Can you all believe my little guy is almost a year old? We got family pictures taken recently...I will be sharing those shortly.

Tonight is Jackson's first trick or treat, so last night we carved a pumpkin he loved getting all the goo out and he was so proud when it was all done and lit up! see.....

Oh and my hubby went on a guys trip to DC for a Monday night football game and had a great time. I think I feel a girls trip coming on! Ha...we will see!
How was your October? I would love to knot what you all have been up to!
Happy Halloween!!!

"Motherhood" the movie!

I read about this Movie on Jill's hysterical blog Can't wait to go see it!!! I think it calls for a girls night out, complete with adult beverages don't you??

Check it out


Belated -10 Months

Dear Jackson,
Happy 10 Month Birthday baby boy!!! For some reason as I write this I find myself tearing up, you are growing up so fast and I just want to cherish every minute! Let me tell you what you have been up to...
  • You are crawling around like crazy and you are in to EVERYTHING! You are also standing up and walking while holding on to the couch etc. You are very proud of yourself!
  • You still have no teeth
  • You "talk" all the time! Most of the time you say ma, da, na and ga but you are starting to try and say more and more things like moooo when we talk about cows! Oh and you do say hi in a very high pitched voice. Daddy laughs because a lot of your time you spend following me around saying ma, ma, ma........MOM!
  • Unfortunately you have spent most of the last month sick with little viruses, but you are a trooper and you keep smiling and laughing through it all. It has made you a snuggle bug though and now I can't get you to sleep in your crib because you have been in bed with us so I can keep my eye on you while you were sick!
  • You LOVE daddy's helicopter and every time he flies it you get so excited! Daddy is very excited for you two to have that hobby together someday soon!
  • You LOVE lady and she adores you! You stand at the baby gate and yell if she is on the other side, you feed her your puffs and lay your head on her when she is next to you!
  • You still won't eat veggies much, I sneak them in when I can. You still eat lots of fruit and puffs are your new absolute favorite. The only real big boy food you like is chicken and noodles especially from Bob Evans! Daddy gave you vanilla ice cream when you were sick and you loved that! Oh and water out of a big boy cup is pretty cool to you too!
  • You are very good at shopping with mommy and you like going out to eat and sitting in the high chair. We never go anywhere without someone commenting on your red hair and how adorable you are! We think you might be the cutest baby EVER but then again we are a little biased!

This is just a small sample of the things that you do to make mommy and daddy smile. We love you so much and get excited about your future and all of the fun things we are going to do as you get older and we can't wait to see the kind of boy and man you will become! The sky is the limit for you and that is so exciting, just know we are right behind you in whatever you do!

I love you higher than the sky and deeper than the ocean and that NEVER ends!!!!


Five Question Friday October 9,2009

TGIF... it's time for Five Question Friday!!

I am joining in the Friday fun over at

You wanna play too right......copy the following questions, paste them to your blog, answer them...then, grab the MckLinky code and link up! I'd love it if you'd link back to me...but, that's not a requirement! ;) And, if you don't have a blog...feel free to answer the questions in the comments below!
Here we go!! (Special thanks, this week, to A., Liz, and Sandy for their questions!)

1. What is the one thing that you reach for the most in a day (excluding phones and computers)?
2. What is the farthest you have been from home?
3. What kind of cell phone do you have? Love it or hate it?
4. Coke or Pepsi?
5. If you could go back and change anything about your wedding day, what would it be and why?

1. What is the one thing that you reach for the most in a day (excluding phones and computers)?Nail file, I always chip my nails and I am afraid i will cut my little guy!

2. What is the farthest you have been from home? Hawaii, I went once with my parents and best friend in High School and then once with the family that I was a nanny for. Pretty cool huh.....I am a lucky girl!

3. What kind of cell phone do you have? Love it or hate it? iPhone! and I more than love it, I don't think I could live with out it now!

4. Coke or Pepsi? Diet Coke!!!! I can't live with out it....I think I would have to go to a treatment center! I limit myself to 1 or 2 a day:)

5. If you could go back and change anything about your wedding day, what would it be and why? First of all I loved my wedding day and I tried to enjoy every minute! The photographer commented at my wedding that " I was such a happy bride" me...aren't all brides happy? guess not!! So my advice to all of you is that if you are getting married don't get all wrapped up in the little things and ENJOY YOUR DAY!!

boy did I digress! Oh well it's my blog and I will digress, wander, go on and on, swear....(digressing again) if I want to!!

Any way to answer the question, I would make sure the staff at my venue would have kept all the guests out of the reception area so we could have gotten the pictures we were supposed to get in there without all of my guests there! We were planning on doing most of our pictures there because it was beautiful....see...

Oh well:)

Have Fun!
