Who am I???

I saw this on a friends blog that I follow ( ) and of course thought it would be SO much fun. How many of these questions did you already know my answers to???

1. Favorite Color:

Probably blue except during football and basketball season, and then it's a VERY strong, deep, and dark R-E-D! (GO CARDS)

2. Favorite food that you make: husband would probably say chicken casserole, it's quick and easy and delicious...but I think my favorite would be baked ziti. I LOVE pasta's. :)

3. Favorite Food Network Chef:

Um...I don't really watch Food Network that often, but I do enjoy watching Curtis Stone on Biggest Loser. :) such a hottie!!

4. What is the last beauty product you bought, and are you liking it?:
Uh....well, my brother-in-law just left his job at Sephora, so I haven't bought any beauty products in quite some time. But the last one I got from him is Sephora brand under eye cream. It's supposed to help with eye wrinkles (which I'm not even sure if I have yet), and I have no idea if it is working, but I ADORE the smoothness of it, and how soft it makes around my eyes feel.

5. What are your top 3 beauty products: I could only leave the house with 3 products on it would most likely be my foundation, blush, and mascara! I don't typically wear a lot of make-up for my day-to-day stuff...I definitely do it up for special occasions....but something I definitely do NOT leave the house without is my Dove frizz control! Especially in this Kentucky Humidity!

7. Essie or OPI?
OPI...I just adore the names of their polish! HA!

8. How often do you workout?
Well that is just hilarious....if you count carrying around a chunk of a 1 year old then all day every day! But if you don't then that's gonna be a once in a blue moon. I coach cheerleading, so I do stretch and warm up and cool down with the I guess in the fall I'm up to a whopping 2 days a week? LOL

9. Iced or hot coffee? the mornings there is nothing better than sitting on a screened in porch or on our back deck with a nice hot cup of coffee (2 splenda's & a little milk)...but when it's hot a muggy out I love an iced coffee in the afternoon. Gives me a jolt to get through the rest of my day, and they're just so darn tasty!

10. Favorite celebrity couple:
Oh....I don't know how I'm going to pick just 1....I guess I have to go with Will & Jada Smith. And by the way, I am DEVASTATED that there are rumors going around that they're separated. I just adore them and their family. I always try to watch any interview that they are in because I love hearing them talk about not only their love for each other, but also their family. And even on Oprah they came and brought not only Will & Jada's mom's, but also Will's ex-wife! I mean the love that is in that family just astounds me.

12. Place you have never been but would like to go:

Ever since I was a little girl and watched that one cartoon with the Koala Bears....I have always wanted to go.

13. What gift did you get from your wedding registry that you get the most use out of?:

While we obviously use our sheets and towels daily, something that we received that is fun that we get the most use from is probably our iced tea maker. LOL! It is SO freakin easy. Just pour in some water, fill the thing with ice, add a tea bag, and viola in 5 minutes you have some iced tea.

14. Biggest pet peeve?

Hmmm...liars...or people who hear lies or false statements about someone and don't have the gall to stand up for the truth. Talk about irritating.

15. Best guilty pleasure:
Lifetime Movie Network. Sucks me in every time...I also love SoapNet!

16. Favorite book:
The Notebook. No matter how many times I read it, and know the outcome I still love it oh so much. I am also a big (HUGE) fan of the Harry Potter series. :)

17. Do you subscribe to any magazines?:
Not on purpose...somehow I seem to receive Southern Living. I'm wondering if someone is subtly calling me out on my lack of cooking at home.

18. Favorite Halloween costume?:

Hmm...for me it would probably be the year I dressed up as a little devil. I was like a sophomore in college I think. I was still teeny tiny, and had some fabulous red pumps, red tights, and some teeny tiny red outfit thing...something I would NEVER let my own daughter wear! The dogs dress up as Mickey and Minnie Mouse...that's pretty cute. And Benny was just about the cutest pumpkin you ever did see last year. :)

19. Drink of choice?:
H2O baby....H2O

20. What advice would you give your 17 year old self?
Don't follow the crowd. Be a leader, stand up for what you believe in, pray...not just to God, but with God...daily.

Fun Surprises!!!


I've got a secret......

And I'm ready to spill the beans!

My husband turned 30! I know...he's SO old. :) WELL...I have been planning a BIG surprise for him for OVER 1 year.....

On Wednesday we leave for......


I am so excited I can hardly stand it!!! He has NO idea he's even going to be on vacation!!! I honest to goodness cannot believe that I have pulled this off. :) I'm going to video him on Wednesday morning receiving the good news that he is not only on vacation the rest of the week, but that he has 2 hours to pack a bag for an undisclosed destination. HAHA!! I'll be sure to post the video when we get back. I just absolutely cannot wait!!!!!

Have you been to NYC?? Any places we need to check out??? I have already done Groupon NYC so we got some really AMAZING dinner deals. I swear to goodness....I am so anxious!!!!!

I'm old...and feeling VERY depressed about it.

Sunday, July 10, 2011


I can't believe it's been almost two months since I've posted!! It seems like just yesterday I was posting weekly and coming to the end of my pregnancy...and now here I sit about to celebrate my son's first birthday in two weeks. The time just absolutely flies by. It makes me sad. Benny has started walking. He walks more and more everyday. He is beginning to understand the things that we say. Although he doesn't listen...every time we say "No NO!" all he does is smile and give a big belly laugh. I love my life more and more each day. My husband is the absolute best, and my son gives me a joy in life that I never knew existed. :) May each of you be blessed with such happiness in your life!

I like to move it move it.....

YOWZA! My boy can M-O-V-E!! No walking yet, so my last prediction of him walking by his 9 month was wrong...but he is SO close. He walks all around holding onto furniture, and the Easter Bunny brought him a walking toy that he LOVES. We also got our very first tooth. We were watching the Royal Wedding, and I saw something glimmer in his first I thought he had found something on the floor and then I realized it was a tooth! It's absolutely adorable...and I'm pretty sure we are currently working on more.

Hung out with some friends of ours last night who have a little boy just two weeks younger than Benny....he is working on his MOLARS! He already has 7 teeth. Talk about crazy! Ben got moved into the creeper room at daycare. Now it's him and a bunch of girls. LOL. It's pretty funny to go and pick him up...before he was in a room with little babies who just look at you when you go in, but now he's in a room with all these kiddos that can move and you walk in and they like swarm you. Hilarious. But my poor little Benny boo gets picked on by all those girls. One day he got sat on and poked in the eye. :( Oh well...only make him stronger right???

Other than having a lot of moving going on nothing else of note is happening in our house. Hope things are going well with you and yours!

IT'S OFFICIAL!!! MY BABY BOY IS ON THE MOVE!!! He has been "rockin" up on his hands and knees for quite a few weeks....although he will walk himself around the ottoman, he couldn't stand up on his own. All of that has changed in one weekend! He started officially pulling himself up this past weekend. It's hysterical! Although...that being said...bedtime has gotten a bit tougher because while he can pull himself up, he can't get back down, SO when he gets tired of standing in his bed he just cries and cries. Then we go in and open the door he immediately stops and gets a huge grin on his face like "hey guys! glad you're here!" Makes me laugh. He also started crawling last night. Talk about AMAZING....although I have a feeling we're in trouble now. I don't think it will be that much longer before he is walking....I'm going to guess that before his 9 month day (April 25) he'll be walking. I mean seriously...he is THAT close. When he plays with his toys on the floor, he is now making himself stand up and then just leans down to the toys....I'd say a matter of days before he realizes if he just straightens up he can stand. S-C-A-R-Y!!! Hubby and I were talking last night about how we've got to really get to baby-proofing the house. Make sure all the outlets are covered, and cabinets "locked". We already keep the doors to the bedrooms and bathrooms closed because one of our dogs is a that won't be any different...we probably also should invest in a gate for the stairs, but at this point I don't know if he'll even go over in that direction. Only time will tell I suppose. :) Talk to you soon!! xox

Benny's First Day

Well, needless to say, my son's first day at day care clearly was harder on me than it was him!! On his note from the teacher it showed all that he had eaten (like a little piggy) and how well he had slept (2 2 hour naps!). When I went and picked him up he was jumping in a stationary jumper. I walked in and I swear to goodness his entire face lit up and he started bouncing like crazy...I scooped him up and got just the absolute biggest little hug. :) Made this momma's day. Especially after having such a long day wondering how he was doing every two seconds. :) Today is going much easier....still can't wait to go and get my sweet boy, but I feel so much better knowing he did so well yesterday. Hopefully we get another great report this afternoon!!
