so sleepy...

It's been awhile. I usually do a post every weekend but I just haven't gotten to it yet.
My parent's were here over Thanksgiving & we had such a good time with them. Thanksgiving was great & my dad & I did our early shopping on black Friday. We were at Sear's at 3:45. Crazy!!! But, I got my vacuum cleaner I wanted.
Anyways, and then Finn's party was on Saturday. His b-day isn't actually until next Tuesday but since the family on both sides were here we wanted to have it then. It turned out great & Finny was probably over stimulated by everyone, but I think he loved it. Anyways, I'm rambling b/c I am so tired & sleep deprived....and I'm on call at work tomorrow & I'm going to have to work really late. I am NOT happy about that. See...I'm rambling. Good night!

weekly wrap..

So this morning I woke up feeling like crap. I'm afraid I've caught a cold. I was wondering why I was sneezing a lot yesterday. I just hope I get over it very quickly b/c there's so much going on this week. I have so MUCH to look forward to.

My parent's are coming Tuesday, Thanksgiving is Thursday, shopping with my dad on Friday, and Finn's 1st b-day party on Saturday. So, you see? I can't afford to not feel well with so much excitement going on around here.

This has been a lazy weekend for me so far. Yesterday I didn't even leave the house till dinner time & that was to just go pick up some food. Finn's been a little cranky the last 2 days. His nose is running uncontrollably & he's got some major teeth coming in. He has 8 already & I guess more are on their way. He's been having so much saliva in his mouth he's having a hard time eating soft food. He's literally gagging on it. Poor dude. I feel so bad for him. Yesterday for lunch I toasted that new round bread & spread a little peanut butter on it for him. It was easier for him to eat & he loved it. Any tips on this from anyone??

I got a new headboard yesterday for our bedroom. I've been looking for literally months for something on craigslist & haven't found a thing. I was at my friend Jackie's house last Friday night for dinner & as I was leaving I saw a headboard propped up in her garage. I asked her if it was for sale & she said "that? you can have it!". So, I got it. :) Dan borrowed a friend's truck yesterday & went & picked it up for me. It's just a headboard, not the headboard/footboard that I was looking for, but it matches & even better it was free! Can't beat that. If I decide to make my bed today, I'll take a pic & post it.

Well, I can't do a post without a few pics so here are 2 of Finn I toke yesterday. He woke up from his nap with some serious "bed head". I thought he was just too cute. I can't wait for his party next weekend!!!!!!!!!!

ready for the holidays!

I'm so ready for the holidays, aren't you??? I LOVE Thanksgiving, I think it's my most favorite holiday of the year. It's like a prelude to Christmas, which is right up there too as one of my favorites. Finn is at such a fun age right now so that makes me even more excited! His b-day is coming up(which is hard to believe) & his b-day party is in less than 3 weeks! My parents will be here in a little over a week & I just can't wait. Can you tell I'm excited?? I just love this time of year. I have SO MUCH to be thankful for. Friends, family, a home, a good job, a wonderful husband, an adorable son....the list could go on & on. I hope this week goes by quickly so my festivities will begin soon! :)

I can't leave without a pic of my little one. I took him to the playground this afternoon & here he is playing. I think he had fun, what do you think??

the weekend

So I had a busy Saturday this weekend. One of my best friend's Rebecca came down from Macon to stay for 2 nights. A college friend of hers who is from Jacksonville got married last night & I went as Rebecca's date. :) But, before the wedding we headed on up to Atlantic Beach to my friend Barbette's house to check out the air show. Barbette lives 4 blocks from the beach so we all walked over & watched the blue angels above us. I'm not sure why but I LOVE airplanes & I especially love the loud noise as they fly literally right over us. I'm completely amazed at how those 6 planes can fly in such a close formation as they do...Can you tell I like planes???

After the air show we headed back to Barbette's to get ready for the wedding. She was so sweet and had out appetizers for us & we had such a great time chatting & hanging on her back deck.Here's a picture of us all ready for the wedding, which was great by the way. The reception was also very nice & we had a great time. Rebecca got to chat with old friends and I got to people watch. :)

And on to my cute little guy. Here he is letting us know that he wants to watch Baby Einstein. He LOVES it now & it's so cute when he's ready to watch it. He is 11 months old today & tonight I've started on his b-day invitations. I'm using construction paper & doing them by hand. :) He spent all day yesterday with his daddy & I am so grateful! Dan does a great job with him & Finn definately loves his daddy. and I enjoyed an unusual day off.

So now we head back to work tomorrow & start another week all over again. How I love my weekends! The only time we get to be a family... By I'm ending my weekend good. I'm eating 2 pumpkin donuts & drinking coffee...yum....

almost a year ago....

I was looking through some old pictures and saw this one! I can't believe this was almost a year ago! My little boy is almost 1 and I don't know where the time has gone. I have loved every minute of it & I have loved this little guy with more love than I knew I ever had. I'm really looking forward to the holidays this year. Thanksgiving is my favorite time followed closely by Christmas. We will have a house full this year for Thanksgiving & I can't wait!! God has been so great & my blessing are overflowing...That said, would y'all take a minute & say a quick unspoken prayer request for me? I'll let you know this weekend what it's all about. Thank you!!
