Jewelry Giveaway!

oops it's sideways...

So these pictures I posted of jewelry are not very exciting, but I just wanted to show that I can do short names (or monograms) and I also have a new upper case font that matches the lower case! I thought the name one was cute...Anyway, you can add beads to these as well. I have a few other new things, but it is late and I would have to get them off the card, load them on the computer, out them in a folder, blah blah blah. The thought of that right now makes me tired!

Alright - so jewelry giveaway! Just leave a comment along with your email if I don't know you and I will draw on Sunday! So the drawing will be for...

$50 Gift Certificate for anything on the website...

Yeaaaaa moving day!

Well we are moving again...the movers loaded everything yesterday and it is on it's way to our new house. It has been a long few days. We were told two days before they were coming to pack and load that we would receive our things between June 30th and July 12th!!!! We freaked out! Anyway, long story short we should be getting it by the 2nd, but we'll see how that pans out! Ugh!!!!! Oh well, thank goodness my mom has been here helping with Will. The movers were there from around 11:30 to 7:00! So mom spent several hours at the mall with Will (she didn't really know her way around so the options were few!). He was so good for her thank goodness and crashed at the end of the day. Anyway, we are staying at our friends house (who are out of town) until we close on Monday - or until our things get here!

I will post a jewelry giveaway tomorrow so check back!

A visit from friends...

Sweet Avery...
Grabbing a handful of Will!
Just playin'
How cute is she???
I promise I dress him everyday...
Will teaching Avery some new things...
I love to swim!!!!

This past weekend my good friend Lori and her 9 month old Avery from Jackson flew up to see Will and I. Michael spent the weekend with her husband and another friend from residency in Arkansas. They played golf and spent time out on the lake. Lori and I were discussing what a long weekend it would be home alone with the kids so she decided to fly on up and hang out! We had so much fun. I miss her a ton!!!! Avery is so precious and one of the sweetest, most content, happy babies I have ever met. She didn't cry or fuss the entire weekend. Will was really sweet to her too. He shared his toys and tried to share his sippy cup with her :) We did a little shopping and got our babysitter Saturday night so that we could go to dinner. It was fun! Thanks Lori for making the trip! Can't wait to see you again...:) Here are a few pictures from the weekend. We meant to get a picture of all four of us, but we forgot :(

is what Will says when he eats (well just about anything) popsicles. Of course today wasn't what I would call a popsicle day - it was around 71 degrees all day (cold front I guess)!

We have been kind of boring lately. Just counting down the days until moving day! We can't wait! Things with the house are coming along and we are so ready to be settled in one place!!!! Of course we lived in Jackson for 5 years, but I guess we never felt settled because we knew we would be moving eventually. Then of course being in Ohio for 1 year...I feel like we just moved here! Speaking of Ohio - here are a few reasons why I am glad to be moving back down south:

1 - I will be able to talk to a stranger, order a meal, or pretty much converse with anyone without them saying, " You aren't from around here are you?" or "I am detecting an accent..."

2 - I will not be the only person in the state that dresses their child in smocked jon-jons and I will be able to take Will out in a smocked jon-jon without someone saying, "How old is she?" or "She is so cute." I know that maybe it's a little froo-froo, but they are only little for a short time...

3 - Every restaurant will serve sweet tea.

4 - I won't have to deal with another FREEZING and DEPRESSING winter.

5 - This one is for Michael it about drove him crazy during football season - didn't bother me so much....The Ohio State Buckeyes! Go Vols!

In all seriousness there are lots of things I will miss about Ohio. I will probably miss more things here than not - it really is a great place. So I hope I didn't offend any northerners or midwesterners (I don't know?).

The other night in Target Michael, Will and I were getting a few things. Michael had Will in the cart and I went to the aisle across from the aisle (across the walkway aisle you know what I mean). Anyway, these annoying women probably my age or a little older walked over and were looking at the water toys along with me. Will squealed out a couple of times - nothing wild and crazy (and I am not one of those moms who think their child can do no wrong - seriously it wasn't bad or even that loud). So at this point the three women are at the end of the aisle closest to Michael and Will and one turns around and puts her back to Michael and Will and says, "Don't you hate it when people bring their kids out past their bedtimes (it was 8 and will goes to bed around 8:30, it wasn't late) and expect them to be good in the cart, blah, blah, blah." Immediately my blood started boiling (and those of you who know me know I hate confrontation and am rather passive unless something makes me really mad! Remember that time I went off on that old roomate DeeDee? Hahaha!). I couldn't let her get away with talking about my baby like that! So I walked up between all three of them and got in the girl's face and said, "Actually his bedtime is 8:30, thanks." She turned every shade of red and said "Oh I didn't mean him, I was talking about like kids at Walmart out really late..." (What does Walmart have to do with it? ANYWAY...). It felt kind of good. I guess it was just maternal instinct to defend your child you know. I don't know, it just made me mad. Just thought I would share. :)

Happy (Belated) Birthday Michael!

We made a quick trip to Nashville this past weekend. Michael's brother, Berry, had surgery so we wanted to go down and see him! He is doing great! We love you Berry.

While we were there we celebrated Michael's 18th Birthday! Haha... I love you ;) We had fun hanging out with Mimi, Uncle Berry, Aunt Ann, and Uncle Kyle. DeeDee, Abby, and Beau were in town so that was a treat being able to see them. Will adores Abby and Abby adores Will. They are really cute together. Will and Beau got along great too. As long as they each had their own cars to play with...:) Once again I didn't take enough pictures, but here are a few.

I also had to post this picture of Will in the pool! He loves the water!!!! Check out that toothy grin... Hope everyone had a great weekend!

T - R -O -U -B -L -E...Berry and Ann are trying to make sure no one falls!
Happy Birthday to Michael!!!!!
Aunt Dee Dee fed Will a HUGE piece of ice cream cake...she knows the way to a man's heart! :)
Another famly photo and no he didn't just get a thermometer meat fork for his birthday :)
