I love thanksgiving!


How handsome are these 2 men?!?!













This picture is one of the main reasons that I love Thanksgiving. Family time is so important to me and when the kids crawl right up to cuddle, I just can't resist! FYI, I'm rubbing the bridge of Wilson's nose (at his request), not suffocating him!

The great pistachio throw!


Check out the pistachio headed straight into Anna Jane's mouth! I'm almost more impressed that I caught this with my camera than with the throw itself!

MBA Winter Formal

AKA MBA Prom
Todd and I went to his Winter Formal and had so much fun. The girls in the picture above have become such good friends of mine over the past 2 years! (Erin on the left and Elise on the right....I just realized we all have E names!)
Here's the crew that often hangs out: Michael Todd, Erin McCrary, Bobby Courage, Elise North, Jon North, me, and Todd. We have so much fun...
...having fun!
And of course I love my wonderful husband!

The finished dresser!

Here's the dresser I bought at a yardsale for $10! This picture is the dresser when I first bought it. The picture above is after the first coat of paint. I was so proud of this purchase and wanted to do something so that it would fit into our nursery theme.
Look at the drawer pulls I found at Babies R Us! I matched the brown paint to it and I think it just turned out perfect!

Love it!!!!!! (Thanks for being my inspiration, Katherine!)

More fabulous husband stories!

I have told you all how much I love my husband and how wonderful he is to me. Well the stories continue!!!

About 4 weeks ago, I hit the 30 week pregnant mark. That meant only (approximately) 10 weeks left before we have a daughter! Todd told me to keep my Friday evening clear. He surprised me with a trip to Subway and then an evening picnic in the beautiful Botanical Gardens! He even brought a blanket and a poster that said '10 weeks!'

Then, 3 weeks ago, with only 9 weeks left, Todd came home and surprised me with my favorite smoothie from Smoothie King. He had it made just the right way! Skinny Chocolate Slim and Trim with a scoop of Peanut Butter...what an attentive husband!

2 weeks ago he came home with beautiful yellow flowers with '8 weeks' written all over the pot!

Last week, while we were out of town, he told me that for 7 weeks, he has arranged for some of my friends to take me to get a pedicure! I haven't gone yet but I am sooo looking forward to it!

Now, I'm not expecting something every week but I do slightly wonder what this Friday will bring, with only 6 weeks left in my pregnancy!

Back off, ladies! He's mine!!!!!

Darndest Things....

Today in our 7th grade math class, the math teacher expressed that she would like to go teach in Mexico. (she knows no Spanish, but that's another story) Anyway, she asked 2 of the Hispanic students if they would like to go to Mexico with her and help her teach.

Immediately one responded, "No."

Shocked, the teacher said, "Why not?!"

He responded, "Cause then we couldn't come back!"
