History Is Made At Night

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!

It has been a busy week in this household. Let me tell you what’s been up…

Little Man is growing and developing mentally and physically like crazy. He now crawls, stands while holding things, stands without holding things (if he’s distracted by a puppy and has no clue he’s standing), and feeds himself finger foods.

His grandma gave him all sorts of food when we visited her after her double knee replacement surgery!

He loves every kind of food! That's a french fry by the way...

He used his grandma's walker to stand...he used it like all evening.

I got a new phone!!! My iPhone 4 (yes, just a 4 no S or G) was two years old and slow as all hell, so when my upgrade rolled around we jumped on it like…like…something that jumps on other things. I am now the proud owner of a Samsung Galaxy S4, it’s HUGE compared to my iPhone 4 but it’s great! I’m about to be planning things like crazy. We’ll be having a home photo shoot for our first ever Christmas card, I have to photoshop the picture we choose (hopefully not, but I have an 8 month old so anything could happen), gather addresses of family and friends, and make and order the Christmas cards. While I’m waiting for their arrival, I need to plan out Little Man’s Disneybound December (details in a future post), start planning Little Man’s first birthday party more (we have a menu, venue, and date! YAY!), and I’m sure there is more that I’m forgetting. My 24th birthday falls in late January, but I am not planning anything for that. On top of all the planning I’ll be doing, I have an adult Christmas party with my husband, a family Christmas party, and two family Christmas dinners (at least) to attend. The holiday season (especially Christmas) has been the busiest time for my husband and I the last two years and I expect this year to be no different…well, except for the amount of presents we’ll be bringing home now that we have a spoiled son (he’s the first grandchild on both sides…kinda).

This is probably what I'll look like until March...minus the hair and the makeup being done.

This post is a LOT longer than I had hoped, oh well, you’ll live. OH! Anyone have any ideas of food to serve at a How To Train Your Dragon themed birthday party? We thought of spicy foods, but there will be children in attendance so that idea is out the window. Let me know! See you back here later!

Last Friday Night

Little Man and I had a super busy weekend. My best friend and my mom were both in town (not together of course), so we had to visit with them. The crappy weather of the weekend was not about to ruin my good time!

Thursday night, we met up with my best friend Tera and went shopping…well, window shopping since we only actually bought peppermint hot chocolate and a muffin at the coffee shop in Books A Million.

I have no idea why it's so bright! Stupid Bed, Bath, and Beyond.

Friday night, my youngest brother had his senior night for marching band so we stayed for the whole football game. Little Man seemed to like it, except for when he got hungry of course.

We were very bundled up!

Saturday, we got lunch, went shopping, and had dinner with my mom and two brothers. Little Man stole a chicken wing from my plate at lunch (no, I didn’t let him keep it long enough to get to the bone), slept for an hour while we shopped, and had some green beans at dinner so he had a good time (he loves food).

Yep, we wore matching shirts.

Today, we cleaned, took naps, and watched movies so we spent the day in our pajamas.

My husband surprised me with a Marvel pillowcase and a Big Bang Theory throw blanket!

The Creep

It’s Sunday and I just watched The Walking Dead. To avoid spoilers, all I will say is WOW! Due to commercials on AMC, I now want to watch Fantastic Four (the movie with Ioan Gruffudd, Jessica Alba, Chris Evans, and Michael Chiklis).¬†Little Man and I took a two hour nap this evening so sadly, I’m not tired right now like I should be. I guess I’ll read some of Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.

So today I wanted to talk about blogs. I don’t know about you but when I find a new blog, I go back and read all the entries. Is that creepy? I don’t think it’s too creepy to read them but I feel it would be a little creep to comment on previous posts. Not like a post from yesterday, but one from like a year ago. I just admitted that I’m a semi-creeper. Awesome.

Nothing exciting really went on this weekend, except for a one year old’s birthday party yesterday. Tomorrow, I go to the dentist. That’ll just add to the stereotypical awesomeness of a Monday.

Did anything exciting happen to you this weekend? Do you watch Walking Dead? Do you find reading people’s entire blog history creepy? Let me know in the comments below! See you later!

Family

Happy November everyone! It’s already a crazy month and it just started! My mom (who lives in Tennessee) and my best friend (who lives in South Carolina) both told me they had snow today! That’s NUTS!

Anywho, we had a busy Saturday today! First, we stopped by Walmart and hit up their 50% off candy sale.

No, it's not his. We gave it to him to play with while we shopped.

Then we took the baby to one of his grandma’s houses.

Apparently exploring Grandma's makes him thirsty. He can hold his bottle, he's just lazy.

Then we went to my cousin’s daughter’s (she’d be Little Man’s third cousin or something like that) first birthday party, where he met the newest baby of the family.

They were "talking" to each other for about 20 minutes!

I'm not sure if he's confused or pooping...

After we left the party, we stopped by my aunt’s to pick up some stuff.

Partying wears them out.

When we got home, the baby went right to bed without crying. He must not have napped enough. Then, I came to tell all of you about our day. How was your first day of November? Let me know in the comments below! See you soon!
